The Spirit’s good friend, Hon. John B. Shannon, is much distressed over sad news he has been receiving dur ing the past week from Minnesota, where he has many friends who* have . the same high esteem for him that he is held in here. We refer to the serious illness of Francis J. Mitchell, a prominent Min nesota lumber dealer whom Mr. Shan non learned to know some years ago while he (Shannon) was a member of the Maryland Senate. The acquaintance between Messrs. Shannon and Mitchell sprang up in . Baltimore, and so strong did it be come that ex-Senator Shannon was in vited to come to Minnesota in due course of time to act as “best man” i at the wedding of Mr. Mitchell. How ever, when the invitation came, Mr. Shannon was ill and could not make the trip. The man who took Mr. Shannon’s place at the wedding, however, was a man after the ex-Senator’s own heart . —the Hon. Geo. H. Sullivan, Republi can floor leader in the Minnesota State Senate, who is also a very warm friend of ex-Senator Shannon. Senator Sullivan came to Frostburg on the 7th inst. to spend about a week with his friend Shannon, but was summoned to Minnesota the next day by a telegram announcing the serious illness of their mutual friend, Mr. Mitchell. Therefore, Senator Sulli van left here on the evening of the Bth for the bedside of his friend in the Northwest, whom he found seri ously ill with typhoid fever and pneu monia. Mr. Shannon is being kept posted by wire on Mr. Mitchell’s condition, and according to a telegram shown to us on Tuesday, the sick man is in a very precarious condition, which dis tresses Mr. Shannon very much. Mr. Shannon also ragrets very much that Senator Sullivan’s visit to Frost burg was cut so very short, and so do all Frostburgers who met the genial and brilliant man from the land of “Yohn Yohnson” while he was here, and among that number is the editor of The Spirit. We can truly say that we have met no man in the last ten years that im pressed us more favorably than Sena tor Sullivan, who is a Republican of the anti-Roosevelt type, a scholar by birth and education, a good story teller, naturally brilliant, and appar ently possessing all the qualities that are lovable and have a tendency to make and retain strong friendships. “Earth’s Greatest Reformation Soon to be Inaugurated.” The subject of a free lecture at the Frostburg Opera House, Sunday, Feb. 22, 7:30 p. m. —Advt. 1-2 Noted Athlete to lecture in the Frostburg Opera House, Sunday, Feb. 22, 7:30 p. m.

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 form of 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.
