Walker, formerly of Frost burg, later of Salisbury, Pa., and now a resident of Greensburg, Pa., Mr. ; Walker has the following to say : I “I enclose $1.75 for subscription to The Spirit, which is a very welcome visitor in our home, as Frostburg is our old home town. “On the 22nd of last January I fell on a slippery sidewalk and dislocated my hip, also broke it and have been suffering very much at times ever since. I was bedfast for four months, and since then I have been hobbling around with a cane and crutch. lam improving very slowly, and I fear I will be badly crippled the balance of my life. “My three daughters are married and living in Greensburg, and our son Charlie is our only support.

East Thursday night was a gala oc casion at the Mountain City Cafe, one of Frostburg’s most up-to-date eating houses, conducted at No. 147 E. Main street, by genial Dan. Powell, the famous cook and all-around good fel low, who is as fat and jovial as a Philadelphia pie woman, and the rep utation of whose place is known far and wide for good eating, good stories and general affability. In fact every body likes Dan. Powell, and they cer tainly like the way eatables are served at his place. Dan. is not only a fine cook himself, but his genial assistant, “Louie,” is also an artist in the culi nary line, and what those two famous chefs can’t conjure up to tickle the palate, is not conjurable. Mr. Powell recently enlarged his place by adding a fine kitchen and several private dining rooms, which are finished in a most artistic manner, and last Thursday night he invited the German Arion Band and about a hundred other guests to his place and served free one of the most elaborate menus that ever traveled down the “red lanes” of Frostburg epicures. It was truly a rare feast of music and much good eating, consisting of such articles as roast pork, turkey, j cranberry sauce, potato salad, celery, | Roquefort cheese, numerous side dishes, coffee, tea, cocoa, and what not ? Olin Gunnett, Philip Gerlach, George Wright, Daniel Powell, of Gra hamtown, Isaac Martin, Jr., and George Gunnett assisted Mr. Powell in serving. It was a most delightful affair in every respect. Margaret Dawsoa Riggs Dead. The subject of this sketch died at Rowlesburg, W. Va., on the 14th inst., aged 83 years, 11 months and 8 days. She was married to Robert Riggs October 30th, 1855. and is survived by her husband and the following named children : Wm. E., Thomas K. and J. Elmer Riggs, and Mrs. Guy Mankins and Mrs. T. B. Anderson. Deceased was a daughter of W. R. | Dawson, whose family was well known in the vicinity many years ago. Mrs. Riggs united with the M. P. Church about 30 years ago and re mained a faithful member until death. She was loved by all who knew her, and her funeral was attended by many people at Rowlesburg, where it was held at the M. P. Church. Rev. Mr. Morris, her pastor, preached a very impressive sermon, and the music and floral tributes were beautiful. Among those from a distance who attended the funeral were Mrs. Thom as Powell and daughter Nellie, of Frostburg, J. H. Dawson, of Fair mont, and numerous others. 4 BOOSTER, not a knocker. “Hope you all spent a merry Christ mas. Hove to you all.” Editor’s Note. —We are indeed sor ry to hear of Mr. Walker’s misfortune, and if wishing and hoping will do any good, he will soon be as good as new. Mr. Walker is a man we have a very high regard for and we often think of him with gratitude. He conducted a store at Salisbury at the time our father lost his life in the mines when the writer was a boy. Hosing father was a hard blow to the family, and very hard times followed his death. But it mattered not whether our moth er had money or not, our credit was always good at any store, and Mr. Walker’s store was our favorite trad ing place. He was helpful to us when we needed help, and we have never forgotten his kindness and confidence. And Mr. Walker always got his mon ey, too, and his trust was never be trayed by any member of our family. l Letter Perfect.
