Miss Elizabeth Wetmore, at Buffalo, N. Y. It’s the proper caper to subscribe for this paper and read -the good “stuph” that makes people sit up and take notice. Joe Bear, of New York, formerly of Frostburg, last week wrote for The Spirit to be sent to him at St. Augus tine, Fla., and sent kind regards to all. He wrote from on board the steamship Cretan. Here’s hoping ge nial Joe is having a swell time down in the Sunny South. Harry McCulloh, formerly of this city, but now a resident of Cumber land, was a caller at The Spirit office, Monday, when he handed the editor a “plunk” and a half for a year’s sub scription to Frostburg’s rechristened exclusively .greater paper, the same which is unconditionally Republican and printed by the home printers who not only print, but print the best. S. W. Jones, an employe of the Post office Department at Washington, D. C., visited the Frostburg postoffice and The Spirit office today. He ex pressed himself highly pleased with the splendid courtesy shown him by our worthy postmaster, Ulysses Hanna and he thinks Frostburg has a postoffice, a postmaster and a force of postal clerks that the town ought to be proud of. So think we all who are familiar with the facts in the case. A son of Mrs. Fanny McKenzie, who resides several miles west of Frost burg, called at The Spirit office some weeks ago and subscribed for the paper. Several days ago he came in ? again to answer an advertisement in its columns. When asked how the folks at home like The Spirit, he re plied that they are all highly pleased with it and read it with much inter est. Such is the word that comes in from all directions. The Eyman Howe pictures shown in the Frostburg Opera House on Mon day evening, were pronounced by many who saw them as the best mov ing pictures ever shown in Frostburg. The editor is under obligations to Manager Hitchins for a complimen tary ticket, but is sorry to say that he was too busy to take in one of the best of many fine things that Mr. Hitchins has provided for his patrons this winter. However, the courtesy is appreciated just the same. FOR A BETTER PAPER. Spirit Enlarges Its Working Force and Plans for Wider Range of Business. The Spirit found it necessary to add another man to its working force this week, owing to the rapid increase of its business. The new man is Maftley W. Trask, who was business manager and editor of the Keyser (W.Va.) Trib une during the past nine months. Mr. Trask was also connected with the Keyser Echo in various capacities for seventeen years. The Spirit’s working force as at present constituted consists of H. B. Davis, of Ebensburg, Pa.; L. H. Wes ton, of Washington, D. C.; Mauley W. Trask, of Keyser, W. Va., and Tom J. Blake, of Eckhart, Md. With such an array of help, we are able to turn out large quantities of work, and we are now planning to make a big improvement on the paper in the very near future. Our new plans are nearly worked out, and a change will soon be made that will enable us to handle a great deal more local news. In this respect we >• have been greatly handicapped ever since embarking in business here, but have been doing the best we could under the circumstances. In spite of all handicaps, however, we have been publishing more news than any other Frostburg paper ever published, and also a paper read by many more people. We call special attention to our great clubbing offer published on the 4th page, whereby we offer our own paper and four high-class monthly magazines all for only $1.68 per year. How can we do it?

A Mati Whom We Delight to Honor - Visits Frostburg and Subscribes < for The Spirit. < Yesterday Jenkins Smith and Rich- < ard Glotfelty, two farmers residing , near Salisbury, Pa., were in Frost burg on business. Mr. Glotfelty, who is the father of ’ Mrs. Edward Jenkins, is well known < in Frostburg and has for years been , doing most of his marketing here. , He has many friends here, and he pronounces Frostburg the best market town in the country, which is the 1 truth. ' ' Mr. Smith brought over a load of : hogs and will hereafter read The . Frostburg Spirit, as many people in his locality are doing, and from this time forward he will do a good deal of ’ his marketing here, as he is much ! pleased with this good old town and ■ the good market prices paid here for , farm produce. “Jenk” Smith, as he is commonly called, is red-headed and also has red 1 hair, but he is one of the most con- ' genial and kindly disposed person we know of. In fact, we consider him both a hero and one of nature’s true noblemen. His father was a noble son of Erin’s ! Isle, and when the elder Smith came < to this country he had as shipmates ; the father of Col. Thos. G. Dillon and , Bernard Rooney, both well and favor able known by many Frostburgers. The father of “Jenk” Smith was * Michael Smith, and lie looked and : talked so near like our good old friend < John O. Winters, of Midlothian, as to , make them appear like twins. While in town yesterday Mr. Smith called to pay his respects to his old 1 friend, the editor, and to subscribe for ! The Spirit. It was a pleasure indeed ■ to renew old acquaintance with him, , and he spoke entertaingly of the many pleasant visits he made to Frostburg with his father in the years agone, 1 when they always stopped at the hos- ' pitable home of James Dillon. If we had charge of the Carnegie hero fund, we would give our good friend “Jenk” Smith a large gold medal and enough money to put him on “Easy Street” for life, for truly he ; is a hero. His wife died and left him with a large family of small children, , and at a time of life when he was no longer a young man. His dear old parents, who were feeble and no long er able to care for themselves, also had him to look to for care and sup port. “Jenk” was up against it” hard, and he was poor, at that time working in the mines. But no man ever bore his burden more bravely, nor gave a better ac count of himself under such distress ing circumstances. His daughter Edna, who was a mere tot when her mama died, rendered her noble father assistance that would have been a credit to any-grown-up woman, and she has proved herself as much a heroine as her father is a hero. The children are now all grown up and a credit to their parents, and the father owns and occupies the old David Eivengood farm near Salis bury, where he has made good and is still prospering. His daughter Edna is still the house-keeper, and is a charming young lady worth her weight in gold. Baseball Club Organized. The Frostburg- Baseball Club has been organized for the coming season, and we have on file' ah interesting baseball article by “Keno,” which will be published next week, but was crowded out this week for lack of space.

SURPLUS is more than a rainy day fund—it's an evidence of good management. In the case of a Bank, Railroad or any other Corporation, a large surplus means that the man agement is wise enough not to distribute all the profits in the fornuof dividends, but to reserve a portion for future use—it may be for emergen cies, or it may be to invest in material, real estate, or something else requiring capital; at any rate, the possession of a surplus renders it unnec essary to borrow the money. 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—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.
