Mills, the orator, pro- 1 moter and organizer who persuaded s West Virginia to “go dry,” was in 1 town Saturday looking over the situa- 1 tion under escort of Messrs. William 1 H. Kreitzburg and Edwin Elias. He ( is a fluent conversationalist, well 1 stocked with interesting topics, and is : one of the ablest temperance workers • in the conntry. J. B. Oder, the veteran editor and manager of the Frostburg bureau of 1 The Cumberland Times, severed his connection with that paper on Mon day. His position is now filled by - T. Porter, another well-sea- * soned newspaper man who has been employed on both The Cumberland Times and The Cumberland News in times past. Marshall Beachy, of Grantsville, an ( employe of J. J. Bender, a Grants- ( ville hardware merchant, was in this ; city in the interests of his employer today. Mr. Beachy informed The t Spirit while here that Simon Glot- t felty, a prominent farmer of Green- s ville township, Pa., was recently tak- 1 en to a Cumberland hospital, on ac- . count of being badly afflicted with rheumatism. The Frostburg people who have dis- ; carded coal stoves and ptlt in gas for warming their homes because they ( thought they would save money by it, 1 have long ago found out that they < were sadly mistaken. Gas heat is un wholesome, lacks sufficient heating a quality in cold weather, is hard on furniture and wall paper, and far j more expensive than heating by means < of coal stoves. ; Charles H. Compton, an old Mary- 1 land boy, who left here 36 years ago, 1 went west and took up land, is visit- < ing relatives and acquaintances of 1 years ago. Mr. Compton went west in the early days of Dakota. He is 1 now the.owner of more than 600 acres of fine land, and reports that his wheat crop this year will yield from j 15,000 to 18,000 bushels. He is accom- • panied by his wife, whose people were also Marylanders. Mr. Compton is a nephew of the late Jacob Brown, for ( many years a prominent lawyer of t Cumberland. Another Nice Bunch of New Subscribers. Our good friend C. H. Ward, of ( Cumberland, was a welcome visitor at The Spirit office last Friday evening, i While here he handed us a check for t $15.00 and requested The Spirit to be < sent for a year to the following named t persons: Mrs. Nellie Berdan, Miss , S. E. Clark, C. W. Wise, Mrs. Mary Boder, G. Jackson, Mrs. William D. c Weaver, Mrs. Dorothy Stewart, Mrs. Mablon J. Woodruff, Dr. H. W. Cana- i da and W. J. Phillips. ( Mr. Ward is not in the employ of ] The Spirit, but he likes the paper and ] takes pleasure in inducing his friends ] to subscribe for it, which he finds no trouble to do. During the last few ’ months he has turned in to us almost j 100 subscribers, nearly all of them < yearly ones, and the cash accompanied every one of them. Mr. Ward is one of our most valued and helpful friends, and we thorough ly appreciate him. If every one of our other subscribers would get just one of their friends to subscribe also, 1 we could soon get a type-setting ma- ' chine and publish a much better ' paper. SAMPLE COPY. Read This Paper Carefully and Thoroughly, Then Mentally Ask Yourself a Few Questions. If you receive a sample copy of this paper, look it over carefully and see if it is not worth $1.50 per year to you (a little less than 3 cents per week) to have such a clean, well printed, newsy and well edited paper mailed to you regularly each week. The editor is only a very ordinary humau being, liable to err, as you al so are, and does not claim perfection for his publication. However, this is the only Frostburg newspaper on earth, and if you are a Frostburger possessing the proper spirit, you will become a regular patron of this paper and thereby help it, to become better and more influential for good—help it to develope into a daily, or at least a semi-weekly journal incourse of time. The editor is honest in his opinions, and he is not afraid to express them, regardless of what you may think of them, for he is no “mollycoddle.” He goes according to his own ideas and clings to them until convinced that he is wrong. He believes in free speech and is ever willing to accord to you the same freedom he desires for himself, and he thinks none the less of any person who honestly dif fers with him on any policy. Yes, read tnis copy carefully, then ask yourself the question, and decide honestly andT consciously as to wheth er it is worthy of your patronage at the small price asked for it, which is less per copy than the price of a cigar, drink of booze, pack of chewing gum ) or dish of ice cream, and truly it would be worth more to you than any of the things just mentioned. ’ In looking the paper over you may find some things in it that do not coin cide with your views, but you’ll be : apt to read many more interesting ' things in it which do. Therefore, don’t knock, don’t croak and don’t be -1 little the editor’s efforts, handicapped as they are and poorly directed as they may be. Amy fool can knock the : home paper and try to down it, but it - takes public-spirited people with love r in their hearts for their f ellowmen and -a desire to help the community to do THE FROSTBURG SPIRIT, FROSTBURG, MD. what they can to help so worthy an enterprise as a local newspaper to flourish and grow. This is an invitation to you to be come a subscriber of The Spirit if you are not already one. Many a single issue of it is worth more to al most any person than the beggarly price of a year’s subscription, and re member, for only 18 cents additional, only $1.68 in all, we can supply you with four high-class monthly maga zines in addition to our paper, all for a full year. The magazines are Wo man’s World, Green’s Fruit Grower, Farm Eife and Home Eife. How can we do it? Well, that’s our business. Just you call and inspect the combi nation, look the magazines over, and you’ll be too wise to let snch a bar gain get past you. tf. PATRIOTIC “DICK” GRIFFITH. “Dick” Griffith went over to Salis bury last week to take charge of the fine farm he is interested in near that town, but while he was working at his crops with a force of 47 men, and do ing more than any 46 of them, he re ceived a telegram on Monday, just 5 minutes after he started to work, an nouncing that the army worms had swooped down upon Frostburg and were rapidly wiping it off the map. The telegram stated further that all former Frostburgers were requested to return to ye old town on ye Pike and help to save it from obliteration. The telegram was signed by the Grand Vizier, the Eord High Execu tioner, the Chaliph and the High Muck e-Muck. “Dick” being a little tired of farm work after a long five-minute tussle with it, and at the same time intensely patriotic, at once returned to our good old town, donned his soldier clothes and has been standing guard over himself ever since to keep himself from deserting if the invading army of worms becoms too numerons or presistent. Helped Celebrate Their Good Old Mother’s 77th Anniversary. Fred and Wm. H. Pfeiffer were in Frostburg, their old home, last week, visiting their aged parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Pfeiffer, who are among the best known and most highly es- ! teemed old people of this community. The 77th birthday anniversary of the good old mother was celebrated last Thursday, and it was that happy event that brought the two stalwart sons and their sister, Mrs. J. E. Heintz, of Cumberland, here. The occasion was greatly enjoyed by all present, but there was one thing that interfered with the aged father enjoying the day to the full limit, and that was an attack of whooping cough with which he is suffering in his 82nd year, a rather unusual thing for a man of that age. The two visiting sons, who are brothers of Dr. J. C. Pfeiffer, of this city, are very efficient musicians. Fred is a member of the U. S. Marine Band, of Washington, D. C., and Will. H. is a member of the U. S. Naval Academy Band, at Annapolis, Md. The former while here handed us $3 for two years’ subscription to The Spirit, for which he has our thanks.

The dance given Thursday evening of last week in the Junior Order Park Pavilion under the auspices of the colored people of Frederick Douglass Edclge, K. of P., of Frostburg, was a great success, due in a large measure to the crowds which thronged to the park from 8 o’clock until late at night. There were many accomplished Terpsichoreans on the floor, but the greatest of all, it is conceded, were Raymond Jackson and Eeslie Morgan, who came out first in the prize waltz. Both are Frostburgers, and are recog nized in colored circles as the most accomplished and graceful dancers in the state. Keyser and Piedmont, W. Va., Mey ersdale, Pa., and Cumberland were largely represented in the assembly. IT’S THE PROPER CAPER to , subscribe for this paper. PHILIP DORSEY CLEANS CLOSETS AND CESSPOOLS 142 W.

SALISBURY CHAUTAUQUA A PHENOMENAL SUCCESS Nothing Like it Ever Before Wit nessed in So Small a Town—A Pointer for Frostburg and Other Larger Cities. The Redpath-Brockway Chautau qua,which was in session at Salisbury, Pa., for a week, and came to a close last Sunday evening, was a phenom enal success, and the benefits to that community, morally and intellect ually, cannot be computed in dollars and cents. The Chautauqua talent was high-class throughout, and all the sessions drew large crowds, the audiences at some of them numbering between 2,000 and 2,500. The promoters had to guarantee the sale of SI,OOO worth of season tickets, and a few croakers and knockers said it was too big an undertaking for so small a town. But it was no such thing, as the promoters sold $2,450 worth of season tickets, and the gate receipts were also very heavy. Salisbury deserves great credit for the great success of its first Chautau qua, and it so far exceeded the ex pectations of its promoters that the same Chautauqua has already been engaged for next year, and nearly $2,000 worth of season tickets for the next assembly have already been sold. The beautiful grove in which the Salisbury Chautauqua was held, has been purchased from the J. W. and A. P. Beachy heirs by some of Salis bury’s leading business men, who were not slow in seeing the advanta ges of Salisbury as a permanent Chau tauqua center, and from now on there will each year assemble at Salisbury large crowds to attend the Chautau quas. Never before in the history of Salis bury were there so many people as sembled there as were in attendance at the Chautauqua just closed. And they were people of the better class, too, many coming from numerous communities in Somerset and adjoin ing counjties. Lots of the very best ones were from Frostburg, and the question now arises, Why can’t Frost burg arrange for a Chautauqua next year? This is an ideal place for such a gathering, and if we arrange for something good in that line here, the very best people from all the adja cent counties will come to participate in the moral, social and intellectual benefits. It is up to the moral and intellectual leaders and teachers of this town to provide something better for the peo ple if they want them to quit going “daffy” over carnivals, cock fights, live pigeon shoots and other debasing forms of amusement. Who will be first to start a movement for a Chau tauqua? Get busy, good people, get busy! The columns of The Spirit are at your disposal to help the good cause along. Don’t forget that. * East Sunday 86 automobiles were counted at the Salisbury Chautauqua grounds at one time, also many bug gies and carriages, and many others had been there, unloaded their car goes of human freight and departed for more. Besides, many came by trolley and motorcycle. The advan tages to our town and to the people of a Frostburg Chautauqua ought to be apparent to all. Let us have the Chautauqua, what? DISTRESSING ACCIDENT. Wm. Glorius Meets With Fright ful Accident While Having a Gloriously Good Time. William Glorius, aged about 14 years, a son of Mrs. Wm. Glorius, re siding on Mechanic street, met with a frightful accident last Monday, while he was with several companions hav ing a gloriously good time in a gigan tic swing suspended from a bough of a large oak tree at the northwest bor der of Frostburg. While high in the air he lost his balance and fell from the swing, striking the ground with great force, which resulted in break ing one of his legs in two places, : knocking out several teeth and cut . ting and bruising himself severely i about the head and face. His injuries were promptly attended ; to by Dr. J. C. Cobey, and the lad is ; getting along as well as can be ex pected, but it will require some time [ for a complete recovery. . Unlucky Day For Frostburg Base , ball Teams. Frostburg baseball teams were in hard luck last Saturday, losing the game in Cumberland and the game in 1 Frostburg. The game in Cumberland was lost by our League-team, and the ' one here was lost by the Frostburg ; Athletics, to Eckhart, and with it was • lost a SIOO prize and most of the heavy gate receipts.
