While putting up a sheet of steel ceiling in the remodeled building, corner West Union and North Water streets, Saturday afternoon, William Mattox, carpenter, was painfully hurt by a fall of the sheet on his left wrist, cutting it severely. A Frostburg citizen showed The Spirit man a letter this morning from a very intelligent former Frostberger now located in one of the largest cities in America, in which The Spirit is mentioned in the highest terms of praise and the editor referred to as a clever newspaper man. Compliments concerning this paper that are handed to others instead of to the editor are doubly appreciated. Always read the advertisements in The Spirit, and thereby keep posted on the best places to buy. Our adver tisers are all fine people, and they have good values in their respective lines at all times. New advertise ments of special interest in this issue are those of the Hitchins Bros. Co., A. Chas. Stewart, Jacob Hafer, Mrs. Annie Schneider, Griffith Bros., M. W. Race and Shearer’s. Supt. Dang, of the Twentieth Cen tury Manufacturing Co., of Salisbury, Pa., was a business caller at The Spirit office last Saturday. Mr. Dang stated while here that he had been booking many orders for the famous traction engines manufactured by the firm he represents. A large addition to the company’s works is nearing completion, and the concern promises to develop into a very large industry in course of time, one that will be worth a great deal to Salisbury and JJoynton. Richard Glotfelty, of near Salis bury, was in Frostburg last Saturday and did the same thing a good many other people in the Salisbury-Grants ville region have done—subscribed for this paper. Many people in that locality prefer Frostburg for market ing and buying to any other town in the country, and, of course, they want a Frostburg newspaper, espec ially when they , can get one edited and published by Pete Divgngood, whom they have known and patron ized for years when he edited papers in’Somerset county, Pa. Sherman and Edward Davis, of Springs, Pa., and Irvin Stanton, Gid eon Guagey, Wilson Folk and Chas. H. Bill, of Grantsville and vicinity, are in this city today.

Some of them told the editor that Mr. Race is the best man they know of to buy horses from, and he has been told the same by many other people at various times. FOUND DEAD IN HAYMOW. Editor’s Brother-ia-Law Dies Suddenly in Oregon. Oliver H. Heitzman, a prominent citizen of Palouse, Wash., who mar ried the editor’s sister, Miss Sadie Divengood, a little over 25 years ago, was found dead in a haymow near Milton, Oregon, on the Bth inst. A coroner’s inquest was held, and the verdict was that death was due to a natural cause, probably of apoplexy. Mr. Heitzman was an exceptionally robust man, and a model citizen in every way. At the time of his death he was in Oregon on a large orchard farm which he was about to take charge of, he and others having traded a fine milling property at Palouse, Wash., for the orchard land in Oregon. He is survived by his wife and three fine boys, the eldest fully grown and a young man of herculean strength. Mrs. Heitzman, whose girlhood days were spent in Garrett county, Md., Somerset county, Pa., and Carroll county, 111., has many friends in all of those counties who will be sorry to learn of her bereavement. Mr. and Mrs. Heitzman were married on the 14th of February, 1899, in Car roll county, 111., the same evening the editor of this paper was married at Carleton, Neb. Weut to Annapolis to Protest Against Tax Legislation. A delegation from Frostburg, com posed of Hon. Walter W. Wittig, Col. Thos. Dillon, Messrs. Henry Fisher and E. C. Willison, went to Annapolis on Monday, and after the session of the House, about 10:30 p. m., held a conference with the Allegany delega tion in the interests of the taxpayers as represented by the Citizens’ and Taxpayers’ Protective Association, recently organized here. They pro tested against the passage of the bill recently introduced by Delegate Gun nett, of Frostburg, empowering the Mayor and Council to increase the municipal tax rate from 50 to 75 cents on each 8100. The delegation repre sented to the Allegany members that the taxpayers of Frostburg are posi tively opposed to any increase in the tax rate. After a thorough discussion the matter was left in the hands of the delegation, which will give the pro test due consideration. The bill as it stands contains the referendum pro vision, thus giving the voters of Frost burg the opportunity of rejecting the proposition at the municipal election, and since the bill has that feature, The Spirit can see no good reason why the bill should not be passed and let the people decide whether they want the tax rate increased or not. With the people given a chance to vote on the question, the bill is entire ly fair to all. Noted Evaagelist to Speak in the Frostburg Opera House next Sunday, 7:30 p. m. All are invited. ■Seats free.

While in Salisbury on business, last Monday, the editor was shown a very clever job of converting an old build ing into a fine modern residence. The building was originally erected for a furniture store, later remodeled for a workshop on first floor and public hall on the second. After serving that double purpose for many years, it was converted into a residence, but during the last year it was again overhauled and converted into a modern residence with all the late conveniences, by Al bert B. Dowry, Justice of the Peace, carpenter and ex-Postmaster. As the building was once the home of The Somerset County Star, a paper formerly edited and published by the editor of this paper, the writer took a special interest in the interesting transformation of the old structure in to the handsome, commodious and convenient residence it has been con verted into by Mr. Dowry, who is a genius as well as a good fellow. The building has been purchased by James Harding, a Salisbury coal operator, who at the present time is occupying a modern residence nearby which is owned by the editor’s wife. Sorry as we are to lose so good a tenant as Mr. Harding, one of the best citizens in that town, we are nevertheless glad to know that he is now the owner of a fine, modern home of his own. In the meantime we have secured a good tenant to take his place, in the person of H. H. Dang, Superintendent of the Twentieth Cen tury Mfg. Co., a concern that manu factures traction engines and has its works at Boynton, a suburb of Salis bury.

Now she is able to eat anything she wants and her appetite is good and before taking your medicine she had no appetite and when she ate anything she would suffer death for so doing and could not sleep at night; since taking your treatment she sleeps well all night long. T. A. NEALL, Roanoke, Texas.” The above letter should convince you more than anything we could say in behalf of Mayr’s Wonderful Stomach Remedy. Suf ferers should try one dose of this Remedy— one dose should convince them that they can be restored to health. Nearly all Stomach Ailments are caused by the clogging of the intestinal tract with mucoid and catarrhal ac i cretions allowing poisonous fluids into the Stomach and otherwise deranging the digestive system. Mayr’s Wonderful Stomach Remedy painlessly removes these accretions without a surgical operation and puts an end to Colic Attacks, Gases in the Stomach and Intestines and all of the usual symptoms of Stomach, Liver and Intestinal Ailments. Ask your druggist about Mayr’s Wonderful Stomach Remedy or send to Geo. H. Mayr, Mfg. Chemist, 154 Whiting St., Chicago, 111., for free booklet on Stomach Ailments and many grateful letters from people who have been restored. For sale in Frostburg, Md., by the G. E. Pearce Drug Co. It Is Bad Business for a local bus iness man not to have his advertise ment in this paper. tf. . ■ SURPLUS Is more than a rainy day fund—its 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 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?
