| LOCAL AND GENERAL j
Mr. and Mrs. Jabez Jeffries were the guests of their daughter, Mrs. Wm. Rowe, Meyersdale, Pa., this week. y Mrs. Prank Bill, of Lonaconing, Md., is this week the guest of her sisters, the Misses Louisa and Kate Wagner, of this city. Owing to a very heavy demand be ing made on The Spirit’s advertising space at a late hour, much news mat ter has been crowded out. School Commissioner Thomas H. Morgan, of this place, won second prize and red ribbon on Keefer pears, at the Lonaconing fruit show, last week. James Morton, the well-known automobile dealer who operates a gar age at the southeast corner of Me chanic and Water streets, is again able to be out, after being housed up on account of sickness for a week. Otto Hohing, Sr., who several weeks ago underwent a very radical operation for kidney trouble, at a Cumberland hospital, has returned home and is again able to walk out. He is not yet thoroughly well, but is improving rapidly. The Great Atlantic Shows, all next week at Jr. O. U. A. M. Park, will, without doubt, furnish lots of attrac tion for the many carnival enthu siasts of Prostburg. The fact that the carnival is under the auspices of Frostburg Lodge No. 348, Loyal Or der of Moose, insures its success, as said lodge is noted for making a suc cess of everything it undertakes. J. Clarence McKenzie, of Pinzel, Md., was transacting business in this city one day last week. Having re ceived a sample copy of this paper a week or two earlier, he paid for a year’s subscription before departing for home, remarking that he likes the paper very much and is also well pleased with its neat, attractive ap pearance. “Freckles” was played-to a large audience in the Frostburg Opera House, last night, and the audience was highly pleased. Mr. Hitchins, the manager, is contracting for some splendid attractions this season, which is much appreciated by theater-goers. “John W. Vogel’s Big City Minstrels,” to-morow night, will be great, and so will “Mutt and Jeff,” next Monday night. Rutherford B. Thomas, writing from Hagerstown, last week, on a Barbara Fritchie post card, sent the following message to The Spirit: “Fifty thousand people on the Fair grounds on Thursday. Biggest day they have had since they began to hold fairs. Joseph Davis, his father, Russell Kalbaugh, Edward Harvey and I Were over to Frederick, Thurs day, and saw the home of Barbara Fritchie. Mr. and Mrs. John Lewis, of Allegany, also were there. The Spirit is under obligations to Editor J. B. Oder for two cash-in-ad vance yearly subscriptions. Editor Oder orders the home paper sent to his daughter, Mrs. N. O. Harrell, at Detroit, Mich., and his son, Archie, at Fort Benton, Montana. The home paper is like a weekly letter from home to FrOstburgers who have cast their lots elsewhere, and all people living here who have friends or rela tives in other parts of the country can send them nothing of equal price that the absent ones appreciate more than the paper printed in Frostburg, in Frostburg on the Pike. Desirable Property at Private Sale. The undersigned has for sale, at her residence, No. 29 Beall street, the following named desirable personal property: 1 Extension Table, 6 Din ing Room Chairs as good as new, 1 Gas Cooking Range, 2 Gas Heating Stoves, 1 Refrigerator, 1 Center Table, 1 Large Solid Walnut Bedstead, and 1 Single Bed and Springs. 10-23 10-30 Mrs. Chas. H. Wade. “Coney” Boys Get Another Drubbing. The Central High School football team came in for another drubbing, Friday afternoon, this time on their own grounds, at Athletic Park, admin istered by the Beall High School team of Frostburg, tbe score being 49 to 0, The boys of Central will have to prac tice more or play better or do some thing to maintain their membership in the league. They can do it if they try. So says the Lonaconing correspond ent of the Cumberland Times, and it is a pretty severe arraignment of the “Coney” players. It is tough on “Coney” to have to go up against a team away ahead of their class, but to get a roast for losing, from a “Coney” man, is fierce. Mrs. George Joaes Dead. - Mrs. George Jones died on Tuesday a. m. at the family home, 111 East Union street. She was a native of Virginia, having been born near Har risonburg in 1856. She is survived by her husband, one sister, Mrs. Andrew Willison; one brother, Charles Mas ters, of Harrisonburg; two children, Allen and Winifred Jones, and three step children, Oscar Jones of Cumber land; Anna Jones of this place, and Mrs. Paul George of Roanoke, Va. Mrs. Jones was an estimable Chri tian lady and a devout member of First M. E. church. Editor’s Sou the Victim of Ruu- Away Accident. Yesterday evening while riding in the delivery wagon of Mr. Spitznas, a Broadway street grocer, Peter L. Livengood, Jr., 6-year-old son of Editor and Mrs. P. L. Livengood, was quite painfully hurt by being thrown from the wagon while the horse draw ing it was running away-. A son of Mr. Spitznas was driving the horse, but escaped injury by jump ing from the vehicle after the horse got beyond his control. The accident occurred near the Jr. O. U. A. M, Park, where the horse took fright at a football being kicked about by some boys. The boy who was injured landed on his face in the road, and while his in juries are not considered very danger ous, they are nevertheless very pain ful, consisting of a skinned nose and upper lip, and both lips were also badly cut on the inside, causing them to swell in a frightful manner. It will be a week or more before the lad will be able to resume his studies at school, but he is getting much happiness out of his pencils, at home, in spite of his injuries, and every little while he tells the folks at home how happy he is because none of his pen cils were lost in the run-away.
