GOOD NEWS FOR FORD OWNERS.
Beatty Motor Company Announces
The Beatty Motor company,
Bellefonte, exclusive Ford agents for
this district, have launched a program
of important changes at their plant in
this place which it is confidently as-
serted will make it one of the best
Ford service stations in the country,
barring none. Their main room front-
ing on Hight street which has hereto-
fore been used jointly as an office,
show room and stock room will be de-
voted entirely to show room purposes
for Ford cars, equipments and acces-
sories with the exception of a small
space which will be converted into a
private office for Mr. Beatty, the man-
ager. The main business office of the
company will be installed in the build-
ing just in the rear of the show room.
Additional equipment has been add-
ed to their repair shops and the force
of workmen reorganized. Boyd M.
Miller will be the service manager in
charge of the plant and the shops will
be in charge of W. W. Keichline, who
has given up his garage on south Wa-
ter street to become head mechanic
for the Beatty Motor company. The
various changes and additions to the
shop equipment and the reorganiza-
tion of the personnel of shopmen will
enable the company to reduce the flat
cost of all overhauling and repair
work on cars. That is, instead of
charging a certain sum an hour for
making repairs a flat price will be
named for doing the work, and the
job will be done for that sum, wheth-
or it takes one hour or five hours to
do it. And all work will be guaran-
Service work, such as car inspec-
tion, changing the ignition, etc.. will
be free. Mr. Beatty estimates that it
vill take from a month to six weeks
to make all the changes now planned
and in doing the work the company
will have the assistance and counsel
of Mr. H. C. Casselberry, the Ford
company efficiency agent, who expects
to spend a month or more in Belle-
fonte. The company’s sole purpose in
making these decided changes in their
plant is to give Ford owners the very
best service obtainable and they feel
that they will then be in a position to

Bierly Family Reunion.
About one thousand people attend-
ed the Bierly family reunion and wel-
come home gathering at Rebersburg
on Wedneday, and it proved the most
sucressful of any similar event ever
held. Our Girls band of Milesburg
was present and furnished the music
for the occasion. The program -in-
cluded addresses by Judge Albert W.
Johnson, of Lewisburg, who was
present with his wife and daughter
as guests of Mrs. Harry Musser, and
ex-Judge Ellis L. Orvis, of Belle-
fonte. Miss Miriam Moyer, late prin-
cipal of the Miles township High
school, sang that quaint Scottish bal-
lad “Laddie” so rapturously that she
was loudly applauded and was oblig-
ed to respond with an encore. Miss
Moyer, by the way, has been elected
to the chair of languages in the Ha-
zleton High school the coming year.
Other brief talks were by Prof. Rit-
ter, of the Lock Haven Normal
school, and Prof. Lewis P. Bierly, su-
perintendent of the Pittston schools.
The officers elected for the ensuing
vear are Rev. Adam 8. Bierly, of Se-
linsgrove. president; Rev. William
Bierlv, of Loganton, vice president,
and George W. Bierly, of Jersey
Shore, secretary. Rolling Green park,
Selinsgrove, was selected as the place
of meeting next vear.
One feature of the gathering was
that nobody had any reason to go
hungry, as there were refreshment
stands a plenty on the grounds where
about everything desired could be
purchased, including watermelons.
Is There a Rheumatism Bug?
In these days of germs, bacilli, etc.,
when practically every ill that human
flesh is heir to is now traceable to
some definite disease microbe, and be-
cause of the pravalence in Bellefonte
and throughout Centre county of a
number of cases of inflammatory
rheumatism, the question just natur-
ally arises is there a rheumatism
bug? And if so, is it of such a char-
acter as to permit of infection by con-
tact and the possibility of the disease
becoming epidemic. At the present
time there are several such cases in
Bellefonte and one in Ferguson town-
ship, and they are all so similar in
character as to cause good reason for
In one or more of the cases the dis-
ease started wish sharp pains in the
right foot just over the instep and
these increased in violence until they
not only affected the entire foot but
both arms and legs. Quite naturally
the disease is very painful and ren-
ders those afflicted practically help-
less. While the editor of the “Watch-
man” is no bugologist on disease
germs he passes the above thought up
to the medical fraternity as one
worthy of consideration and hopes
that if they are able to discover such
a thing as a rheumatism bug they
will kill the critter before it creates
an epidemic of that painful disease.

tie, each team scoring one run. The
rain interfered with the game sched-
uled for Tuesday evening of this
week, so that the relative standing of
the clubs is the same as published in
last week’s paper. There are quite a
number of postponed and tie games
to play off so that there is some as-
surance of good sport in this line for
several weeks to come.
——The young women of Belle-
fonte who have been taking the course
in home nursing under the instruc-
tion of Miss Elder (or rather Mrs.
Edwin J. Oellig) superintendent of
the Bellefonte hospital, took their
final lesson on Tuesday evening and
as a compliment to their instructor
presented her with a set of silver tea-
spoons. Miss Elder announced to the
class that she contemplated leaving
Bellefonte the first of September to
establish her own home in Coraopolis,
but she will not for a time, at least,
divorce herself entirely from her pro-
fessional work, as she expects to
teach home nursing in Pittsburgh.

languages to succeed Miss Mary
Schad resigned. Mr. Florey is a grad-
i uate of Lafayette College and saw
service abroad where he acted as in-
terpreter for the A. E. F. While in
France he also took a course in lan-
guages in the University of Aix,
hence will come to Bellefonte with the
very highest recommendations. Mr.
Florey’s selection completes the list
of teachers for all the Bellefonte
schools so that there will not be a va-
cancy when the schools open on Sep-
—— During the past ten days or
two weeks there has been such an un-
usual scarcity of sugar in Bellefonte
that grocers were compelled to limit
purchasers to two pounds at one pur-
chase. There has been no increase in
price, however, as the price has been
fixed, but the shortage coming just at
this time, in the very midst of the
canning and preserving season, has
proved-not only a great inconvenience
to the average housewife but may. re-
sult in considerable waste in fruits
and berries. But the writer was in-
formed yesterday morning by manag-
er G. Fred Musser, of Dannenhower
& Son, wholesale grocers, that the
outlook is good for an increased sup-
ply of sugar within the next week or
two, which will be good news to all
——Peter Mendis was an arrival
in Bellefonte on Wednesday on his
way from Florida to Detroit. Mich.,
where the family now resides. It will
be recalled ‘that the Mendis family.
left Bellefonte ‘seven or eight years
ago and moved to Florida where Mr.
Mendis purchased a fruit and produce
farm and had golden visions of reap-
ing a rich harvest in growing oranges,
watermelons, etc. But the little god
fortune is just as fickle in Florida as
in any other place and Mr. Mendis
found that the picture of gold dollars
rolling into his pockets from his or-
ange trees was only a mythical paint-
ing of the man who sold him the
plantation. But he stuck to it a num-
ber of years until his family tired of
the life there when he moved to De-
troit, Mich. He is now nicely located
in that city, with his boys all employ-
ed and is getting along famously.
But he still retains his “plantation”
in Florida and it was to see how
everything thereon was progressing
that he made the trip to that State.
It is about four vears since Mr. Men-
dis has been in Bellefonte, but he is
still the same affable Italian he was
when he junked it around town years
— When pilot James H. Knight
arrived in Bellefonte from Cleveland,
Ohio, on Wednesday, he announced
the fact to his brother aviators that
he had bien married while in Cleve-
land to a very attractive young lady
but so far as could be learned did not
divulge the maiden name of the wom-
an who is now Mrs. Knight. But that
little detail didn’t prevent the force
at the aviation field from having some
fun at pilot Knight's expense. One
of the number hastily secured some
suitable female attire and arrayed
himself as near like a bride as it was
possible for him to look and with pi-
lot Knight at his side the two were
driven through the streets of Belle-
fonte in the big aviation truck, while
other pilots on the truck and on a
motor cycle tooted horns in regular
serenade fashion. Owing to the mea-
gre information given out by pilot
Knight we are unable to give details
of his marriage, but in this connec-
tion we will tell the girls of Centre
county how the girls in Delaware go
about catching aviators. The other
day a fleet of airships was scheduled
to give exhibition flights in and about
Wilmington. Three flyers took to the
air but after flying some distance
they were all seen to drop down sud-
denly. Fears for their safety were.
entertained and scouts were promptiy
sent out to see what had happened
and when they reached the place
where the aviators descended they
were found sitting among a bevy of
pretty girls eating lunch and drink-
ing tea. The girls had taken a num-
ber of bed sheets and laid them out
on the ground in the form of a big
“7” and seeing the signal the bird-
men went down to investigate and the
above was the result.

could be so purchased. But before
the public could take advantage of the
offer postmaster Gherrity received a
revised list from the Department
which eut about half the articles from
the original list, and the ones cut out
were of course the most desirable.
The demand for them had been un-
usually large and as the big cities had
the first pick at the goods offered they
just naturally grabbed up the best
bargains and the most desirable stuff,
and it is now up to the country to
take what’s left or not get any of the
Notwithstanding this fact, however,
quite a large number of orders have
been filed at the Bellefonte postoffice
for the government goods. And for
