I LOCAL AND GENERAL \ Jerry Yost, a prominent farmer re siding near Jennings, was marketing apples in Frostburg today. Mrs. P. E. Eivengood went to Salis bury, Pa., Monday morning, to attend the funeral of her aunt, Mrs. Eliza beth Kimmel. She has since been visiting friends and relatives at Sal isbury. Miss Edna M. Hammond, of Cum berland, orders The Spirit sent to her address and remits to pay for her sub scription in advance. She writes that she hears the paper very highly spoken of. John W. Eivengood, a prominent farmer of Elk Eick township, Pa., has been quite busy during the past week marketing 1,000 bushels of pota toes in this city. He sold the tubers to the Mountain City Produce Com pany. A son of Eli S. Miller, residing be tween Grantsville, Md., and Salis bury, Pa., was a visitor at the Miners’ Hospital, this city, several days ago, where his mother was brought for treatment some time ago. It was be lieved that Mrs. Miller was suffering with cancer, but it was discovered at the hospital that her ailment was of a far less serious nature. Mrs. John Hosken, one of Frost burg’s oldest residents, died Thurs day at the family home, No. 21 Depot street. She was 86 years old, and is survived by two children, Howard Hosken, Johnstown, Pa., and Mrs. Charles Dickey, who with her hus band, resided at the Hosken home stead. Mrs. Hosken was widely known by all the older residents of this place. The funeral arrangements had not yet been announced when this item was handed to the type-setter. Dr. I. E. Ritter is this week enter taining on his farm in the Shenandoah Valley two of his many friends, Rich ard Griffith and Ira Finzel, who are down there on a hunting expedition. Mr. Finzel, who conducts one of Frostburg’s best eating houses, has served notice on his boarders that they are to get their appetites in prop er condition for all the bear meat they can eat for the next week after his return. The mighty hunters expect to return next Sunday evening with a mighty cargo of bears and smaller game. Mine Inspector Walters Moves to Frostburg. William Walters and family, for merly of Midland, are now residents of Frostburg, living in one of the handsome new homes which adorn East Union street. Mr. Walters is the ' well-known and popular State Mine Inspector, and besides being a compe- j tent and conscientious officer, is a 1 model member of the United and Im- ' perishable Order of Good Fellows. NOBLE WOMAN DEAD. Editor and Many Others Mourn the Death of a Beloved Relative and Friend. Mrs. Elizabeth Kimmel, one of the most highly esteemed residents of Salisbury, Pa., died at her home in that town last Saturday evening, aged about 73 years. She was the widow of the late Aaron Kimmel, who died near Berlin, Pa., more than 30 years ago. Nearly ever since the death of her husband, Mrs. Kimmel lived at Salis bury with a blind sister, Miss Mary Eivengood, who survives her. Mrs. Kimmel is also survived by the fol lowing named children : Samuel, of Yerington, Nevada; John, of Mon tana ; Mrs. Clarence Wells, and anoth er married daughter whose name we cannot now recall. Both daughters reside in the West. Mrs. Kimmel is also survived by the following named brothers : Jeremiah J., John J. and Peter J. Eivengood, all of Salisbury, Pa. One daughter, Ella, and the fol lowing named brothers and sisters preceded her tothe grave : Samuel J., father of the editor of this paper; Alexander, who died in infancy ; Mrs. Emanuel Gnagey, who lived near Grantsville, Md., for many years, but died a few years ago at a very ad vanced age at Pasadena, Cal. ; Mrs. David Maust, of Indiana, and Mrs. Henry Yost, of Garrett county, Md. Mrs. Kimmel was a daughter of John C. Eivengood, a prominent farm er and horseman of Elk Eick, Pa., who was well known among the many noted freighters and teamsters who figured in the palmy days of the old National Pike. No woman was evermore universal ly esteemed among her acquaintances than was Mrs. Kimmel, and she will be sadly missed in the community where she died, especially by her blind sister to whom she was so ten derly devoted. If kind deeds or motherly ministration to those in dis tress or under the heavy hand of af fiiction count for anything in the great beyond, then truly a rich re ward is in store for this noble woman, whose greatest delight seemed to be in doing what she could to add to the comfort of others. Mrs. Kimmel’s funeral took place on Monday forenoon,conducted accord ing to the rites of the Church of the Brethren, of which she was a faithful and devoted member. The remains were interred by the side of the writer’s mother, in the old Eivengood cemetery near West Salisbury. Death was caused by a stroke of paralysis. The blind sister will be cared for during the coming winter by one of her nieces, during which time her plans for the future will be decided upon. Pronounces The Spirit a Grand Paper. Cumberland, Md., Nov. 4, 1914. Mr. P. E. Eivengood, Frostburg, Md. Kind Sir :—Being a subscriber of your paper, I feel it my duty to write and let you know how much I appre ciate The Frostburg Spirit. It is cer tainly a grand paper all the way through, especially the Pastor Russell sermons. I think everyone should read them. I expect to remain a subscriber as long as you publish the sermons. Eong live The Frostburg Spirit. Yours Respectfully, Blanch® Fbrnbr. Important Fraternal Event. Mountain Castle, No. 16, of Frost burg, and Potomac Castle, No. 17, of Westernport, Knights of the Golden Eagle, will hold a grand rally session in Fisher Brothers’ Hall, Frostburg, Saturday evening, November 7th. The leading incident of the occa sion will be the ceremony of confer ring the order’s three degrees upon fifty candidates, in which five grand officers will take part, George C. Tra cey, Grand Chief, leading as orator. All members of the local Castle, No. 16, will at 6:30 p. m., in Wittig’s Hall, preparatory to march to place of joint meeting. At the end refreshments will be served. Frostburg’s Big Hallow’en Parade Fully a page of this paper would be required for a fitting description of the big Hallowe’en parade in this city last Friday night. It was the biggest event of the kind ever “pulled off” in Allegany county, and there were fan tastic costumes in it to represent al most everything, many of them ar tistically unique. More than a thou sand school children participated in the fun, and several hundred adults and many automobiles also followed the lead of the Frostburg City Band and our city police. The police and the marshals were mounted on prancing steeds, and the band was dressed infantastic costumes. Owing to moving our plant and get ting out this issue of The Spirit with a portion of the equipment not yet properly arranged for business, we are compelled to forego a write-up of the Hallowe’en affair in detail, such as it merits. A make-shift paper is all we are able to give our patrons this week, and that is all anybody could do under the circumstances. Much other inter esting and important news matter must also be slighted or entirely left out of our paper this week. As else where stated, The Spirit is gotten out this week almost entirely for the ac commodation of its advertisers, and we are glad to be able to do even that under the present circumstances.

Henry F. Cook Moves to Cumber land. Henry F. Cook, formerly editor of the Frostburg Gleaner and for a year : or more business manager of The ! Mining Journal Publishing Co., has sold his desirable Mt. Pleasant street 1 home and decided to locate his family ■ in Cumberland, where he and Chas. : A. Rodda are doing business under : the name of Monarch Printing Co. Mr. Cook and family have many 1 friends here, whq regret to see them locating elsewhere. Mr. Cook was an employe of The Spirit for about six months, and he called on the editor on Monday to order the paper sent to his Cumberland address. He not only paid for his own subscription for a year, but also paid for a full year for four of his friends. That was real nice on his part, and we wish him : much success in his new location.
