WHERE THE FAMILY WENT.
An old copy of the New York Her ald contains the following: Mother’s going to Hong Branch; Bessie to Cape May; Jane to Narragansett; Nell to Buzzard’s Bay; Sue to Saratoga; May to Hake Champlain; Flo to Martha’s Vineyard, Grace to Fulton Chain; Jack to Atlantic City; Charley to Good Ground; Bob is going sailing At Harchmont on the sound. Bill will soon be motoring Through the Berkshire Hills, And dear old dad will stick around And try to pay the bills. Well, so much for the New York Her ald; but here is a rhyme of our own, and it will fit more than one family, too: Mother’s going crazy, and so is Bess, they say; Jane is doggoned lazy, Nell never worked a day. Sue is getting looney, while May is off her whirl, and Flo is acting spooney, and Sal’s a silly girl. Jack isn’t worth a hill of beans, and Charley’s ’bout the same, while Bob’s a silly weakling and hardly in life’s game. The whole blamed bunch is lazy, and dote on fads and frills, while they almost drive dad crazy to duff up for their bills. Sunday’s Big Harvest Baseball Evangelist Reaps Big Har vest of Cash and Makes Many Converts. “Billy” Sunday, the baseball evan gelist who just closed a revival that lasted six weeks, at Johnstown, got more money in a single collection than most preachers can get in salary in ten years. Following are some inter esting figures sent out in a Johns town news dispatch: Johnstown, Pa., Dec. 14 Billy Sun day, baseball evangelist, to-night closed six weeks of campaigning in Johnstown with a record of approxi mately 12,000 conversions. He will speak twice more to-morrow before leaving for Winona Hake, Ind., to rest prior to the opening of his Pittsburgh campaign. Sunday was given /a collection to day of $15,665, and while there will be no solicitation to-morrow, it is esti mated that this will be increased by several thousand more. A close esti mate of the total attendance during the meeting places it at 775,000. Citizens National Bank Awards Prizes.

The First National Bank’s Greetings. The First National Bank of Frost burg, one of the strongest banks in Western Maryland, as well as one of the best officered and conducted banks to be found, anywhere, is out with a handsome embossed folder printed in three colors, on which is inscribed the following: - “Greetings—l9l3-1914. The First National Bank of Frostburg, Md., ex tends to you the compliments of the season and wishes you a happy and prosperous New Year.” The subject matter is very artistic ally arranged, and many copies have been mailed out to the large army of enthusiastic patrons of that bank. Altogether, the folder is a very attrac tive compliment from a very attrac tive and popular bank, and The Spirit acknowledges receipt of one of the handsome folders. Is This Evidence of Democratic Prosperity? The receipts of the B. & O. Railroad Company for the month of November show a falling off of at least $1,000,000 from the corresponding month of last year. The Company is discharging thousands of its employes to reduce expenses. The officials of the Com pany claim that the closest economy is necessary to keep the expenditures within receipts, and almost wholesale discharge, has been the result. This same policy is general with all the railroads. Sends Check to Help Frostburg’s Poor. Score one more point in favor of the home paper. A prominent farmer re siding near Grantsville, one who is a very good man, has sent his check for $lO to the editor of The Spirit, to be used bj r him for supplying Christmas cheer to that amont to poor children in this town. The donor of the check has given it in the true Christian spirit, for he re quests that his name be not mention ed if any report of it is made, and his wishes shall be respected, for he is not the kind of a man who wants his good deeds preached from the house tops and published in the newspapers in order that he may be praised by men, as so many people do when they give to the poor. The check came in response to a plea for the poor that was published in this paper a few weeks ago, and in his letter accompanying it, the send er of the check says: “Your article made me feel like as sisting you a little in your effort, and I will enclose my check for $lO, which I trust to your care, believing it will be used for what it is intended for.” The editor will see that the money is wisely used in making hearts glad, and a report will be rendered private ly to the good man at Grantsville, tell ing him just where and how the dona tion was distributed. He knows us and we know him, and the President of the Frostburg Civic Club, Mrs. P. O’Rourke, has been requested by the editor to help in making the best possible use of the money, and she will have done so ere this letter is in print, for she knows who the real des titute and worthy poor in this town are a great deal better than we do. Salisbury’s Mild Climate. The Somerset County Star, a news paper published at Salisbury, Pa., only 13 miles from Frostburg, makes mention of a young man in that town killing a water snake in that vicinity on the 12th of this month. The Star speaks of the incident as “evidence of a mild climate,” and so we must regard it, for we know the young man who killed the snake to be a sober, truthful young man, and the Star, on account of being established by the editor and publisher of The Spirit, in 1891, and the further fact that it has always been a staunch Republican newspaper, which is sufficient evi dence of truth and veracity, re moves all doubt from the story. Snakes are sometimes seen in Frost burg, too, in December, but they are not watersnakes, and are always seen by fellows who steer clear of water. Neither are the snakes seen here in December considered evidence of a mild climate in this vicinity, but rather as evidence of an all-fired hot climate in some other region towards which certain fellows are traveling,at a rapid rate. The “Us Fellers Club.” The club bearing the above unique title, of which J. Benson Oder is pres ident, has sent out a large number of cards during the past week, bearing wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, and, incidentally, an invitation to attend the “Holiday Hop” of the aforesaid club, in the Frostburg Opera House, Dec. 29th, beginning at 9 o’clock. Beall’s Orchestra will furnish the music, and that a good time will be had by those who attend, The Spirit will vouch for. The invitations were printed at The Spirit office, headquarters for good printing. There’ll Be a Rush to Join New Christinas Savings Club. There will undoubtly be a big rush on at the Citizens’ National Bank, next Monday, when the new Christ mas Savings Club is started. Two new classes have been added to the rapidly growing club. For particulars, see the bank’s advertisement in this issue. COMMISSIONERS’ MEETING. Annual Transfer and Appeal Ses sion.
