j LOCAL AND GENERAL j
Miss Minnie Schneider, who is a
good judge as to what constitutes a
desirable Christmas gift, has paid for
a year’s subscription to The Spirit
for her brother, Oscar H. Schneider,
of Orlando, Fla. The home paper is
just like a lettter from home to absent
friends, and more Frostburg people
should do as Miss Schneider has done
—make an absent friend a present of
a year’s subscription to it.
Mrs. Fanny A. McKenzie, who re
sides several miles west of Frostburg,
recently received a- sample copy of
The Spirit, and straightway sent her
son to the office to subscribe for it.
The Spirit is being well received by
many out-of-town people who do their
marketing and buying in Frostburg,
and more Frostburg merchants should
be getting their advertisements into
the home paper, and thereby attract,
to their stores the best class of cus
tomers in the world—the people from
Mr. and Mrs. W. E. McMurdo, of
Salisbury, Pa., and Ambrose Deal, a
farmer residing near Salisbury, were
in Frostburg on Tuesday, in attend
ance at the funeral of George Bur
dock, a friend of theirs. From here
Mr./McMurdo went to Thomas, W.
Va., yesterday, in quest of work at
some new mining operations there,
and his wife returned to her home in
Salisbury." Mrs. McMurdo, is a
daughter of the late John Meager,
who formerly resided here, but moved
to Salisbury, Pa., more than 30 years
ago, where he died about two years
ago, leaving quite a large estate to
his estimable wife and children. Mr.
Meager'started as mine laborer, but
by thrift and economy became a mine
operator in due course of time, at
which business he met with phenom
enal successlN Mr. McMurdo also
formerly resided at Frostburg.

Spirit will please not that the paper

Therefore, those of our patrons who

Letter From a Dear Little Boostir
Dear Mr. Editor: I was reading
in The Spirit of Mr. Annan’s birthday
being in December, and about all
those great people, including yourself,
that were born in that month. It just
put me in mind to write and let you
know that I was born in December,
too, but not on the 14th nor on the
6th, but on the 25th, on Christmas
morn at 15 minutes of five.
I think I have more to boast of than
you or Mr. Annan. I will be ten years
old on the coming Christmas, and my
birth being near the time of the birth
s of the Bethlehem babe, I felt as if I
would have to write you a few lines,
although I am not great, as Robert
Koch, Dion Boucicault, or a queen,
but only a poor little girl with one
thing to be grateful for, that is, my
date of birth, and hoping for greater
days to come.
From a little booster,
Diana May Thomas,
207 W. Union St.
Editor’s Note—Dear “little booster
girl,” we publish your nice little letter
with great pleasure. We congratu
late you on being born on Christmas
day, for your parents could have re
ceived no other Christmas gift so
valuable as a nice little “booster girl.”
Boosters are always needed, and we
believe that you will always boost for
the right. Anyway, your letter has
the proper tone, and in the matter of
a birthday, you have it all over Mr.
Annan and the editor.
May you live long and happy, and
may old Santa Claus make you as
happy on the coming Christmas as
your parents were when you came to
them as a Christmas present ten years
MY CANDY CUP.
By C. B. Ryan.
O, Santa Claus, famed Santa Claus,
fond hope of youth,
I fear I loved you better ere I learned
I followed you through Toyland,
through snow and slush,
Nor faltered when I only had milk
To sustain my youthful hopes and
Happy with my brass-tipped boots
and fuzzy caps.
Once on a Christmas eve I hung my
And found therein, next morning, a
I was told by fond parents with glist
That ’twas dear old Santa Claus left
me that prize.
I regarded it only as candy then —
I was still a boy with no knowledge of
But, Santa Claus, your memory taunts
With due respect for reindeer, I love
And while my memory clings to that
The thought of it somehow gets my
For though I hold that I am not a
One candy cup won’t sweeten many
Maybe I made a mistake in growing
And for that reason you’ve stopped
my candy cup.
Well, if that’s true, old man, and you
Just stop the “bitter cup man,” and I
Nor try to put you “in bad” with ’
That has not “got your number”— :
learned the truth.
