the newspaper and job printing busi
ness booming in Meyersdale, and in a
recent issue of that paper there were
57 columns of advertisements. 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. Music,
elocution and refreshments will be
features of the evening. 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
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
“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
“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
‘ “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
