The Frostburg Opera House is mak ing a great hit with its “Paramount Pictures,” for there are none finer to be seen anywhere, and the crowds turning out to see them are enthusi astic in their praise. The Sue Hig gins Stock Company, which is show ing all week in the Frostburg Opera House, is also making a great hit and attracting large crowds. Lawrence Hitchins, the opera house manager, deserves much credit for the high class attractions he is providing for his patrons. Richard McGann, of Big Vein Hill, was severely injured in a powder ex plosion which took place in Klondike Mine No. 7, last Friday afternoon. Mr. McGann was preparing to retire from the mine, and had set a shot of dynamite to be exploded. After firing the fuse he retired to the mine en trance, and waited perhaps twenty minutes, and hearing no explosion, he went into the mine again to see why the shot did not go off. When within ten feet of the place the shot exploded, throwing the coal and rock all around him. He was burnt about the face and hands. It was thought at first that his eyesight was impaired, but it will be saved. High-Class Stock Company Here. The Sue Higgins Stock Company made its first appearance Monday eve ning at the Frostburg Opera House, playing “The Workingman,” a drama with lots of force, and many impres sive situations. The work of the company was so well received by the large audience that by special request “The Work ingman” will be repeated next Satur day evening. Miss Higgins and the company supporting her are all cultured and clever people. They have in their repertore little that will appeal to the thoughtless, but all who like high class drama, good acting and clever comedy will find much to please them in the work of the Sue Higgins Stock Company Advertisement.

SOME OF SUNDAY’S SiLLYJAYINGS. ; Some of the Things the Great Evangelist Delivered Him self Of in Denver. Some weeks ago Billy Sunday, the famous evangelist, closed a very suc cessful revival in Denver, Colorado, : and here are some of the choice mor sels of speech he reeled off when speaking ou “The Second Coming of Christ,” as told by the Denver Daily News of October Ist: “With fists doubled the evangelist shouted this at scoffers : ‘You damna ble old wretches, you imps, you God forsaken spawns of perdition !’ ” At another time he got his fists ready for action and almost sobbed this out between his clenched teeth : “You God-forsaken wretch, you who say you don’t believe in the second coming of Christ, come up and tell me so and I’ll try not to hit you ! “Jesus will reign again on earth. I don’t know, but He may let me reign over Colorado. He may say, ‘Bill, you can reign over Denver and vicinity.’ I’m going to be with Him, and the very thought fires me to the end of my toes. If I do, there’ll be something doing.” At another time he said : “I expect I’ll make a fool of myself when I get to Heaven. The first thing I am going to do is to look up old Abraham. I’ll shake hands with him. Then I’ll shake hands with Isaac and say, ‘Living next door to your old daddy, eh, Isaac ? Glad to see you, old chap.’ Then I’ll meet Joseph and say, ‘Hello, Joe, they tried to slip something over you when they' put you in that old pit, didn’t they ?’ And when I see Jacob I’ll say, ‘Hello, there, Jake ! In some respects I ad mire you, old man !’ And when I meet Daniel I’ll say, ‘They couldn’t get you, j those old boozers in Babylon, could they, Daniel ?’■ Oh, I expect I’ll make a big fool of myself walking all over God’s Heaven.” At another meeting, divested of coat and vest and collar, he climbed upon the table, rushed to the posts at the end of the platform, and tried to climb them, and acted like a crazy man. The News says of this meeting : “He began the prayer that comes at the close of his sermon and stopped suddenly. His body swayed and he seemed to be struggling to get his breath. He clutched at his coat near his heart, and, as he slowly pulled himself together, he said in a half whisper, speaking to some imagina tive person, ‘Behave yourself ; if you are as tired as I am you’d faint !’ ” It Doesn’t Sound Good to lls. The Spirit would really like to know whether the spirit of God moves in that kind of away. The sin-smashing Sunday would, of course, say that it does, but candidly, we doubt it, and it doesn’t sound good to us. On one occasion, we are told in Holy Writ, a spirit of some kind spoke ; through the mouth of Balaam’s ass, 1 and we’ll let it to any fair-minded judge as to whether the language the ass made use of wks not a great deal more refined than Billy Sunday’s vo cabulary. That Billy Sunday is a power for good along certain lines, we cannot deny ; but his braggadocio and silly conversations that he alleges he is going to have with God and all the old Christian patriarchs when he gets to Heaven —well, that’s enough to cause us to think that the famous evangelist is himself in need of con- ! version. We repeat it, Billy’s balder dash and buncombe doesn’t sound good to us, and one can imagine about j what Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph and Daniel would say . and think if addressed on the streets of Heaven by j a fresh 20th century guy from earth in the person of Billy Sunday, talking to them in the manner Billy says he’s going to cut ’er loose with his bawling bazoo when he meets them. Mrs. James Richardson Dead. The funeral of Mrs. James Richard son, who died last Sunday morning in ; the Miners’ Hospital, was held Tues day afternoon at the home of John Richardson, Hill street. The death of Mrs. Richardson takes from this community one of its most estimable women. She was a native of Wales, having been torn at Pentry Pit, South Wales, 51 years ago. Her maiden name was Mary Ann Reese. In 1889 she was married to James Richardson, who with five children survive. The children are: Charles, of Carlos; Osborn, of this place; James, William, Clarence and Miss Alberta, of Pittsburgh. She also leaves one brother, Louis Reese, with Kimmell & Durr, Cumberland, and one sister, Mrs. William Gerlach, of Pittsburgh. All her were here to attend the funeral. Mrs. Richardson was a member of the First M. E. Church in Frostburg for many years, and was always active in church and Sunday school work. She taught a class at Sunday school. When she moved from here she with drew her card and became a member of McMaster’s M. E. Church, Turtle Creek, Pa. Mrs. Richardson was also a promi nent member of Ridgely Rebekah ' Lodge, No. 3, an auxiliary of the I. O. ■ O. F.

The Old National Road to Figure Prominently in New Pictures for the “Movies.” Frostburg always welcomes within her gates anyone who takes an inter est in the old National Pike, which runs through this town, the history of the same being closely linked to the history of Frostburg. The people of Frostburg love the old pike, not only because of its picturesque scenery and traditions, and not only because it was once the great main thorough fare and artery of traffic of the nation, but also because they see the glory of the grand old highway 7 returning, now that it has been rebuilt and seems destined to become, in the very near future, an important link in a great ocean-to-ocean highway. And when that day comes to pass, as it undoubtedly will, it will mean much to Frostburg, more probably than would another trunkline railroad. The Spirit was much pleased last j week to meet H. B. Faidly, who was brought to the office by W. E. G. Hitchins to get some printing done that will figure in the making of pic tures for the “movies” to be shown in many places along the proposed ocean ; to-ocean highway and points adjacent \ thereto. Mr. Faidley is president of the Faidley Moving Picture Company, and is here taking pictures of the sa lient points of scenic and community interests for the use of the National Old Trails Association. He will get a picture of John’s Rock and two views of Union street, taken at noon time, so as to have the public and parochial school children in the views. The street scenes will be in motion pictures and will be reproduced here at a later date. The object of Mr. Faidley’s visit, is ;to boost the National Pike. Every town on the famous road from San Francisco to Wheeling has already been visited and photographed, and the work will be continued until all the towns between Wheeling and Bal timore are visited and photographed in the same way. After the films are made the total number of views taken all along the route will be shown in every town, with the purpose of instructing the people with regard to the various lo i calities through which the pike passes. Mr. Faidley is enthusiastic about the j scenic beauty of Western Maryland, declaring it to be the grandest east of the Rockies. He is being assisted in his work here by W. E. G. Hitchins. Together they have visited Grantsville, and later Mr. Faidley intends going toUniontown to get views between that place and Grantsville.

TO EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENCE between our high grade coffees, pre serves, canned foods and other gro ceries and the ordinary kind is diffi cult. But to know the difference is very easy.

We reallzp that He is almighty and that He could prevent it If He wished We read in His Word that He is more willing to do for His children than 1 are earthly parents for theirs, and we know how much that means; yet of > tentimes it seems that those who try , to do and live right have the most I trouble. This question is made very clear in a book entitled. “The Divine ( Plan of the Ages.” Every statement is backed by Scripture, and shows that " while God does not sanction evil HE HAS HAD A PURPOSE IN ALLOW s ING SIN AND DEATH TO REIGN 7 THESE SIX THOUSAND YEARS. i This and many other subjects of deep r interest to all of God’s people are dis- I cussed fully and in language easy of j comprehension.

PROFITABLE DAILY TITHING. “Daily Heavenly Manna.” This little book is having the largest ■ circulation of any of its kind and is conceded by Christians everywhere to be the most helpful. If Christians allow the rush and ' crush of selfish ambition to deprive them of their daily portion of heaven ly food, they must not be surprised if , they grow spiritually leaner day by . day, and if the peace of God gives . place in their hearts to the discontent which is growing in the world, not , withstanding the multiplication of our , comforts and privileges. Daily Heavenly Manna contains a.col lection of Scripture texts with appro priate quotations for every day in the year. Surely the little tithe of time dally spent in partaking of its morsels of heavenly counsel cannot fail to profit all who partake. It is published - to do good—not for profit. 1 Your Friends’ Birth Dates. An autograph and birthday record feature in this book is a great conven - fence. Opposite each day of the year , ire blank lines upon which you can t secure the autographs of your friends f and be reminded of their birthdays as s they occur. This makes the book more s valuable yearly. In ten years you 5 would not sell it for ten dollars. Besides it has a place for Birth Rec ords. Marriage Records and Death Rec ords.
