Getty, of the First State Bank of grantsville, Md., was trans acting business here and at Cumber land this week. H..C. Bonig, a prominent citizen and merchant of Grantsville, Md., was in Frostburg and Cumberland on busi ness this week. A. Charles Stewart, clothier, left Tuesday night for Philadelphia and New York to purchase goods for spring and early summer sale. Among the many other prominent men in Frostburg this week was Wm.

Shaffer, of this place, attended the funeral of Mr. Thomas Kenney, at Piedmont, W. Va., Monday. Rev. W. E. Bird, of Midland, was in Frostburg Tuesday, and, jogged about his “tired look,” he said “and I’m sleepy, too.” Recent church work has been so strenuous that he has lost both rest and sleep. A. S. Barton, Mrs. Florence Wil liams, Charles Barton and Mrs. Joseph Shaw, of this place, returned home Monday from Keyser, W. Va., where they attended the funeral of their uncle,-Mr. James Keenan. The many friends of J. A. Vandiver, of Mineral county, W. Va., commonly known as “Hink, ” are glad to note that he has not forgotten a town wherein several years ago he spent many happy days.

There’s at least one big African in the public utilities woodpile of Frost burg that must be gotten out some how, and The Spirit is going to do its share toward getting the “nigger” out. The citizens of Frostburg have some rights that must be respected. The Spirit has quite an interesting letter from the Rev. Geo. T. Hanna, of Chicago, who is a brother of Post master Ulysses Hanna, which will be quoted from and commented on in our next issue. The Rev. Mr. Hanna has remitted for The Spirit and says he enjoys reading it. Are you following up the series of 33 reasons why you should use electric light that are appearing each week in the advertisements of the Frostburg Illuminating and Manufacturing Co? One reason is given each week, and they are so good and so strong that they should be read by everybody. Chas. H. Bill, a Grantsville capital ist and all-round good fellow, was in Frostburg on Tuesday. He spent a short time here renewing old acquaint ance with the editor, one of his old time friends and schoolmates, then took a car for Eonaconing to visit his brother Frank and family, who reside there. The editor’s wife and little son, John, went to St. Michael, Pa., last Saturday, to spend a week or ten days visiting Mrs. J. B. Algire and family. Mrs. Algire is a daughter of the editor and wife. Since arriving at St. Michael, Mrs. Eivengood has written a letter home stating that she is suffering somewhat with a badly x bruised arm, caused by a fall while crossing the Western Maryland Rail way tracks as she was about to get aboard the traiq she departed on. C. S. Gorsuch, the genial mayor of Borden Shaft, was a business visitor at The Spirit office last Saturday even ing. He said while here that he had seen several copies of The Spirit and liked it very much. Of course he sub scribed, and it was indeed a pleasure to get acquainted with so genial a soul as the Mayor of Borden Shaft. Mr. Gorsuch formerly resided in Som erset county, Pa., hence is a “Frosty Son of Thunder,” by which name the people of that county are known far and wide. In spite of the name, most of them are genial, warm-hearted fel lows, however, but determined and resolute. The home of W. H. Deneen and family on Water street, was the scene of a very enjoyable surprise party, last Thursday evening, in honor of their daughter Mary. Various games were played, and there was also good music, both vocal and instrumental. Refreshments were served at 10:30 o’clock, after which more games and other diversions were indulged in for another hour, and then the guests de parted. Those present, besides the family, were Misses Margaret Porter, Elizabeth Fisher, Maryland Williams, Sarah Skidmore, Margaret Meyer, Gladys Kemp and Masters Robert Fresh, Evan Rees, Chas. Geis, Wm. Kallmyer, Joseph Evans and William Eivengood. When the average American reads that the Panima Canal is completed and is now about ready for the formal opening to the world of commerce, he still wonders at the enormity of the task of building it. No printed de scription can tell the full story of the great construction. However, Lyman H. Howe will present at the Frostburg Opera House, on Monday, February 9, an animated record of “Uncle Sam’s” great achievement which will fully enlighten every curious citizen. The film reproduces every interesting phase of the Canal Zone activity. Under the masterful editing of the Howe organization, the principal in cidents of nearly ten years of photo graphic vigil at the Panama Canal have been put into their natural sequence and will be presented with a degree of realism and perfection that is amazing. It required several hundred kinds of apparatus to create the mechanical effects which enliven the reproduction. New Operating Rules on Western Maryland Railway. Arrangements have been made by the Western Maryland Railway Com pany whereby all of the trainmen in its employ may receive the proper in struction in the new operating rules which are soon to go into effect on all the lines of the company. In order that the greatest possible aid might be given Western Maryland men in becoming thoroughly familiar with all the changes in the rule book which will take place, the railway company has designed Messrs J. M. Williams and D. T. Eichliter, two of the best known conductors in the ser vice of the road, as instructors. Mr. Eichliter will make his headquarters in Cumberland, and will hare super vision over all trainmen on the West ern Division, while Mr. Williams will render any assistance possible in the line of instruction to all trainmen em ployed on the Eastern and Middle Divisions. By the time that the new rules go into effect, it is expected that every trainman will be thoroughly drilled in all rules affecting the operations of trains. As the new book of rules con tains certain important changes, the Western Maryland deemed it wise to place at the disposal of trainmen the necessary means of gaining a thorough knowledge of the changed rules, which they will be able to do under the course of instruction which has been provided.

Getting Liber ally Cursed by Their Patrons, This Week, and More is in Soak for Them. Ask almost any Frostburger what he thinks of his gas bill for the last two months, and he’ll begin to swear un til the air gets blue, especially when the January bill is discussed. Verily, The Spirit does not blame them, and we will say more along this line about next week. A storm’s brewing for the aforesaid soulless corporation, and when its fury breaks forth, it will make many sit up and take notice. This will do for this time, but just keep your ears to the ground and your eyes on The Spirit until the thunder bolts are all ready.

Pennsylvania Farmer Who Likes to Trade In Frostburg Registers One Kick —Also Hands Out Some Groundhog In formation. J. J. Eowry, a farmer residing near Pocahontas, Pa., made several trips to Frostburg this week, and when in terviewed by a representative of The Spirit he had the following to say: “Frostburg is the best market town for farmers of my section, especially since the old National Pike has been put in good condition between John son’s and Frostburg. It is a pleasure to drive over that road now, but be fore it was reconstructed it kept many farmers from coming to Frostburg.” That, in substance, is what Mr. Eowry had to say, and it is strong evidence that no town can afford to have any but first-class roads leading into it. If you don’t believe it, ask our friend W. E. G. Hitchins, who is loaded at all times with evidence along that line, and is one of the greatest good roads enthusiasts in this state. We need many more like him. Mr. Eowry also had a complaint to make against Frostburg. Some weeks ago he and his wife were in town to do some marketing and some buying, when the wife fell on a sidewalk near the Beall High School on account of | [for sale;] 1 A Second-Hand 8-Horse Power 8 Steam Engine f B With Upright Boiler.

NHHHOBNHHHHIMnanHBI said sidewalk being used for coasting purposes by boys and girls who had worn it so smooth that one could hardly stand on it. Mrs. Lowry was quite badly injured and is still suffering from her fall, and there may be a damage case against the town in due time, owing to the fact that the ordinance against coast ing on sidewalks is not enforced by our officers as rigidly as it should be. Mr. Lowry reported lots of snow between Pocahontas and the Pike, and when asked about groundhogs and their influence upon the weather, he said: “I don’t think they know any more about the weather than we do, but it is a fact that they begin to crawl out of their holes about February Ist or a little later, if the weather is npt too severe, as I have discovered more than once on the farm.” The groundhog is a hibernating animal, like the bear, spending most THE FROSTBURG SPIRIT, FROSTBURG, MD. of the winter in a comatose state. While speaking of this phase of the little animal, Mr. Lowry related that he once plowed out a groundhog on the 20th day of December, during a spell of open weather. The hog was curled up and showed scarcely a sign of life, but when straightened out would promptly curl up again and sleep on without showing any further signs of life. “While in that condi tion,” said Mr. Lowry, “many a groundhog is drowned by water filling up their winter quarters during heavy thaws and winter freshets.” Seats Free, No Collection. “The Rich Man in Hell.” Don’t fail to hear this interesting lecture at the Frostburg Opera House, Sunday, Feb.

EVERY PERSON should have a surplus in the form of a SAVINGS ACCOUNT. It is exactly the same with the Individual as with the Corporation HHH his surplus indicates that his personal expenses have been kept so well within his income that there is something left over. It also shows that he has not used it all in “dividends” of pleasure, but like a wise man has “salted" some of it down for the future. HOW MUCH SURPLUS have you? If you have never started a Surplus Fund, begin right now, by opening an account in the SAVINGS DEPARTMENT of this strong Bank.
