stated while here that he had been

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
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,

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
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
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.

Aa Ex-Postmaster Who Is a Clever
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
