That’s “going some,” for a town not over half as big as Frostburg, in which there is also another newspaper that had about half that many columns of advertising the same week. The editor and wife acknowledge receipt of an invitation to be present at a reception to be given at Windber, Pa., Dec. 31st, by Windber Council No. 1796, Royal Arcanum.

The editor is a member of Council No. 1796, and he yvould be delighted to meet with his brethren at the place and time stated, but it will be impossible. Said council is one of the model councils of Pennsylvania. In fact there is no better Royal Arcanum council any where than that at Windber, Pa., and as a fraternal insurance order, there is none better in existence. “THE TIME LOCK.” A Wonderfully Interesting Serial Story that Begins This Week in The Spirit. Don’t miss a single chapter of this 1 intensely interesting serial story. Thosewhoread “Holton of The Navy,” , which was continued in The Spirit from Sept. 11th to last week, when the closing chapter was published, enjoyed a rare treat, but “The Time Dock,” which bWgins in our columns this week, is even more interesting. Read it and learn that there is more than one variety of bluff. The author, Chas. Edmonds Walk, tells how an in ventor brings a multi-millionare to time by a clever fake. A strange murder, a mysterious disappearance and a succession of unusual adven tures will keep you interested from the beginning to the very last chapter. Greetings from Citizens National Bank. One of the neatest of New Year cards we have yet received, has just come to hand as we are making ready to go to press. It is an exquisitely beautiful embossed and steel-die printed card from the Citizens Na tional Bank of Frostburg, bearing this message: “To wish you all happiness at Christmas and prosperity throughout the New Year.” A basket filled with holly, printed in red, green and gold, adorns the card, and the design is most beautiful, as is also the printing. All in all it is a high grade piece of work from a very high grade and ably conduted bank, and the message it contains is appreciated by the bank’s large num ber of patrons and friends. The Heap Big Indian Chief at Store of Davis Bros. Davis Bros., the well-known Frost burg tobacco merchants whose adver tisement appears elsewhere in this paper, are constantly adding new at tractions to their store. The latest is a “heap big” Indian chief in a strik ingly peaceful attitude, and nicely described as follows in Evening Times: “Chief Manito, regarding the store as his hospitable wigwam, will stand, and motionless and noiseless play con tinuously the part of footman, not only during the Yuletide season, but every day for many future years. “He does not appear in war paint, but in the many varied colors of his tribes, and hence, is symbolic, at this moment particularly, of “Peace On Earth, Good Will To Men.” “He holds in one hand the “Pipe of Peace;” in the other a bunch of to bacco, and to him may be happily ap plied the well known lines of Kong fellow: ' ‘ “From the red stone of the quarry, With his hand, he broke a pagment, And molded it into a pipe-head, From the margin of the river. Took a long reed for a pipe stem, Filled the pipe with bark of willow, And, erect upon the mountains, Gitche-Manito, the mighty, Smoked the calumet—the Peace pipe.” ’ jpttsxjoosooooooosiooossooooos^ 1 pYonCanDependonthe QuaDtyl 1 X | if you seledt a present* : | AT PEARCE’S JJ f Genuine Parisian Ivory ~1 K Is Expensive x | We havefit, open stock, and you can buy a j X | Comb and Brush now, and a Mirror at some j X | future time.
