The lower end of Nittany Valley, not to
be out-done by the more rapidly whirl-
ing social worlds of other sections, has
come to the front with a first class elope-
ment. Allof the parties are well con-
nected and of the most respectable fami-
lies in the valley:
Mr. John Frank, of Flemington, had
two daughters one of Whom married
Charles Bechtol, the scion of one of the
most respected families of Nittany Val-
ley, the other, J osephine, a tall, willowy
maiden of seventeen summers. Charles
'Bechtol and family lived in Union
county for some time where he operated
one of his father’s farms, but when the
place was sold he returned, with his
wife and three small children, and took
a contract to get out railroad ties. This
work necessitated his taking up his resi-
dence in a cabin, where his wife became
so lonely that her sister Josephine had
to be sent for, as a companion. Bechtol
took kindly to his quondam sister-in-
law and a ripe intimacy soon sprung up.
Whenever she wanted to go home he
would drive her over and then, longing
to bask in the sunshine of her presence,
would go after her again.
All the time they kept loving each
other harder and harder, the poor wife
never realizing the awfulness of the
situation, until pere Frank discovered
that bis son-in-law’s attentions to the
fair Josephine had become entirely too
assiduous. She was called to task, but
in true heroics scoffed at the very idea
of anything more than a sisterly affec-
tion tor her brother by marriage. This
relieved the old man and the lovers
went spooning on to their'hearts content.
Bechtol neglected his family and his
tather had to care for them. No one
saw the trend of things until Mr. Frank
received his daughters “adieu’” on Tues-
day morning. His daughter Josie had
written it to inform him that she had
stolen the better half of her sister, and
departed for realms unknown.
If they are apprehended, the thieving
daughter of Eve should be soundly
spanked and Charles—well a tar bath
with a new coat of feathers would be
just the thing for such a rooster.
—Few of the WATCHMAN readers will
not remember Wallace Chadman’s con-
tributions with pleasure and when we
inform you that he is now a practicing
attorney, in Ohio, you will doubtless be
gratified to learn of his well merited
success, in pushing himself through the
musty volumes of Blackstone requisite
to admission to the bar. The State
Board of Examiners gave their certifi-
cates, on March 3rd, and already Wal-
lace has begun the practice of his profes-
sion, at Ashtabula, Jefferson county, in
the Buckeye State.
He is a writer of considerable note
having written several prize stor-
jes for the Detroit Free Press and a
number of short articles fcr the daily
journals of Chicago. Among his treas-
ures from literary work is a letter which
he values very highly. It is signed
with the name of Jules Verne, to whom
Mr. Chadman says he submitted a pro-
ject for a romance, with the scene laid
in a starof the constellation of Ursa
Major, where the ruler was a superna-
tural god. The letter is dated at
Amiens, and a translation has been
made as follows :
Monsieur: Pardon! — On account
of a long absence, I have not known
of your letter, of the 22nd ult., until
to-day. In reply to you to-day
to tell you that I find the idea you
submit to me for a romance very ingen-
ious; but as its philosophical phase
would stretch too far the pure imagina-
tion with which I am accustomed to
write, I cannot launch myself out into
such lofty speculations. But why do
you not write this romance by yourself ?
The author of an idea is always best
adapted to carry it out. Wishing you
success, dear Monsieur, with hearty ap-
preciation aud regards,
Major C. G. McMillen, who five years
ago was proprietor of the Brockerhoff
House, in this place, and now catering
to the wants of guests of the Dickey
House, in Dayton, Ohio, has been hon-
ored by the Democrats of tnat city, with
the mayoralty nomination. He had a
majority of six votes in the nominating
convention and, as Dayton is a demo-
cratic city, his eleztion is almost a fore
gone conclusion, As it has lately been
raised to a city class and as this will be
the first election under the new law
Maj. McMillen has been doubly honor-
ed and will doubtless conduct the office,
with honor to himself and bis party.
The Times published a very good cut
and a short sketch of our ex-hotel man.
Insanity CURED.—Some time ago
we made mention of John Schuchman’s,
of Philipsburg, having been taken to
the University hospital, at Philadel-
phia, for treatment for insanity and
gave a full account of the wonderful
operation which was performed on him.
A cyst, which had formed at the base of
his brain, was opened and cleansed and
the wound carefully closed. On Satur-
{ day last he returned to his home in a
perfect state of mind.

pointed another young man (a farmers
son) Deputy for Union county. Mr.

in the Bucknell University. In Ly-
coming county, J. F. Schuler and J.

CoLLEGE.—For some time a water fam-
ine has been staring State College in the
face and every thing possible has been
done to keep the place from going dry.
Last summer a new well was drilled
with the determination to go clear
through to the other side unless a good
stream was struck. As the ten inch
hole deepened signs were few indeed,
but imagine their joy when, last week
they struck a great stream, al the depth
of 860 feet. The were started.

33000 gallons per hour has been kept

a particle surprised to see him come

~.—TUnder the head of “A Pretty
Lenten Wedding,” the Philadelphia
Star of last Thursday, gives the follow-
ing account of a social event that was
of interest to many Bellefonte people,
Miss Unger has spent several summers
with her aunt, Mrs. Albert Owens, and
while here made many friends, who
wish for the charming young lady a
happy married life :
A very pretty wedding took place at
high noon yesterday, at the residence of
the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. B.
Cunningham, of 1924, Judson place.
The bride was Minnie Bower Unger
and the groom August Bernard Meyer,
of Indianapolis. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. J. L. Russell, form-
ly of Altoona and lately of California.
The spacious house was beautifully
decorated with palms and cut flowers.
The bridal party, consisting of eight,
entered the library to the sweet strains
of Mendelssohn’s March, played by an
orchestra, and stood in the bay window
under a canopy of smilax and roses.
The bride was charming in an elegant
gown of white corded silk, trimmed
with rare lace, her ornaments being ex-
quisite diamonds, the gift of the groom.
She carried a bouquet of bride’s roses
and lilies of the valley. The attendants
were Miss Blanche Bender, in a pink
gown, who carried La France roses, and
Miss Madge Fay, in a pale blue gown,
who carried Marechal Neil roses. The
flower girls were Misses Byrde and
Nellie Slayman, cousins of the bride,
attired in white Swiss over cream silk.
They carried bouquets of Catherine
Mermet roses. The young ladies were
all from Altoona, Pa. The ushers were
Edwin Bower Unger, brother of the
bride, and Herbert Minor Morris, both
of this city. The guests were from
Minneapolis, Altoona, Huntingdon,
Lancaster, Philadelphia and Atlantic
The gifts were elegant and numerous.
Those of the bride to the bridesmaids
were gold pins set in diamonds, and to
the flower girls gold bracelets set in
diamonds. The groom's gifts to the
ushers were gold pins set in diamonds.
Immediately after the wedding break-
fast the bride and groom left on an ex-
tended trip through the South, which
will include Baltimore, Washington,
Florida, Cuba and Mexico, and will be
at home after May 7, at Indianapolis,
RaiLroAD NEws.—The present
bright weather is having a telling effect
on the Bellefonte Central extension and
the residents of State College are be-
coming more jubilant as the road nears
their village. It will be a matter of a
very few days until the construction
train will be running back and forward
and then all will be in readiness for the
regular passenger and freight trafic,
The president assured us, on Wednes-
day morning, that a very pretty station

CounciL’s MEeeTING.—Council met
in executive session, on last Monday
evening, but very little business was
transacted. A number of complaints.
about the hydrant water being warm
and brackish, were laid before council
and opened for investigation. The on-
ly cause given was the proximity of the
steam pipes to the water mains in some
parts of the town. The complaints were
reterred to the water committee. A
boardwalk was crdered to be laid along
the property of W. C. Heinle, on Logan
street,and as the tax collector, Mr, Ray»
failed to make his statement, as ordered,
it was postponed until next meeting
when the police question will also be

old quarters, in the Lose stables, to the

street. Abe is snugly fitted up in his
new quarters and invites his patrons to
call and inspect them. With the
change of quarters he expects to intro-
duce new and fashionable turnouts
which he will hire at the lowest rate.
Satisfaction and safety always guaran-
teed. Then if you would takean after-
noon’s ride, on these balmy spring af-
ternoons, Baum'’s livery is the place to
procure easy riding, stylish turnouts
and spec ly and safe horses.

one of the best mated and finest teams
of heavy draft horses, that has beenjseen

——For some time past the Christian
Endeavor Society of the Presbyterian
church has contemplated a visit to
Milesburg, in the interests of the socie-

members, who were actuated by a’ phil-
anthropic spirit as well as a desire to
have a jolly good time. crowded into
several lurge hacks and carriages and
started to reclaim the gilded youth of
the bustling twin cities. The visitors
stopped at the new Presbyterian church
where they were received and welcomed
by an enthusiastic assembly, that was
