The committee of ladies, appointed by the Eadies’ Auxiliary to the Miners’ Hospital board to receive the donations for the “Christmas Basket,” sent to the hospital Christmas Eve, were de lightfully gratified at the generous response made by members of the auxiliary and others who felt kindly interested. Miss Eva H. Jeffries, secretary of the Auxiliary, reports that: “The basket contained a turkey, celery, canned goods, fruit, jellies, preserves and pickles. Flowers for all the patients were also sent. Prof, and Mrs. Olin R. Rice, through the auxiliary, presented the hospital with a set of dishes of one hundred pieces, a beautiful remembrance of the fact that Mrs. Rice herself is a most sympathetic member of the auxiliary. Jeffries Brothers, the popular jew elers, very fitly donated a solid-silver butter knife. Miss Jeffries also states that the members generally of the Auxiliary are very much interested in the well fare of the hospital, and for at least two months have been busy making articles for use in the institution— this apart from the fact that they had and have donated a number of the beautiful pieces used in furnishing the hospital. Truly, if town, county and state were all “auxiliaries” of the same in dustriously generous spirit as that which animates the ladies’ interest in it, there would be no doubt of both its permanence and super excellence as one of the world’s most humane in stitutions.

So on went the dances, with joys unconfined, until the hour set apart — all too soon, for adjournment arrived, and then there was unanimous con sent awarded to the opposition —this is the ultima thule of social pleasure in Frostburg, and on that sublime height we will adjourn to meet in this place about this time, next year!
