Cresson, that his condition is already
considerably improved and he feels

many friends in Bellefonte will be
pleased to learn of his improvement.
There must be something
about Pennsvalley that appeals to
silk manufacturers. Some weeks ago
F. OQ. Hartman, of Danville, purchased
ground in Millheim on which to erect
a silk mill and last week he purchased

which he represents a sixty to seven-
thousand dollar mill will be erect-

tures go to the Scenic and watch the

landlords are still pinning their faith.
on President Wilson is shown in the
fact that every one of them who re-
newed his license for August has
again renewed for September. This
is the third renewal made without the

only natural to suppose that if the ban
is finally lifted Mr. Drinker will have
to settle for what the landlords have
been compelled to pay out.
| COUNCIL WILL PURCHASE PHOE-
NIX MILL PROPERTY.
Borough Council Voted to Exercise
Option on Plant at Regular Meet-
ing on Monday Evening.
At a regular meeting of borough
council on Monday evening that offi-
cial body voted unanimously to exer-
cise the option held on the Phoenix
mill pumping station and purchase
the plant as per the offer of Col. W.
Fred Reynolds of July 10th, which
gave the purchase price as $25,000
and terms of payment exceedingly
reasonable. The six members present
at the meeting were president Walker
and Messrs. Brouse, Cunningham,
Fauble, Flack and Richard. Mr. Rich-
ard, as chairman of the Special com-
mittee, recommended the purchase of
the plant and Mr. Fauble made a mo-
tion that the recommendation be ac-
cepted. Mr. Flack seconded the mo-
tion and on roll call every council-
man present voted aye. The details
and arrangement for the payment of
the plant will be worked out by the
Special committee and borough solic-
itor and presented to council at a lat-
The first business brought before
council when it convened was a writ-
ten communication from both mem-
bers of the borough police force re-
questing an increase in salary on the
grounds of the unusually high cost of
living. Inasmuch as the Fire and Po-
lice committee had no recommenda-
tion to make no action was taken.
A written communication was re-
ceived from the Potter-Hoy Hardware
company setting forth the fact that
contractor R. B. Taylor was indebted
to them in the sum of $1316.28 for
material purchased and used in build-
ing the state road through the bor-
ough and requesting any action that
council could consistently give to-
ward securing the payment of the ac-
count. Inasmuch as council is al-
ready obligated to the Bellefonte
Trust company to practically the fuil
amount of any and all moneys yet due
contractor Taylor no action could be
taken on the above request.
Mrs. A. Sterner, of Philadelphia,
requested exoneration of water taxes
on a house she owns on east Howard
street because of its being unoccupied
for a period of two years. The mat-
ter was referred to the Water com-
Mr. Richard, for the Street commit-
tee, reported the receipt of ten dollars
from Mrs. Morrison, of east Bishop
street, for a sewer permit, and ten
dollars from Miss Montgomery for re-
pairs to sewer on Allegheny street.
The committee also presented a con-
tract with the Gaylord International
Engineering and Construction compa-
ny for the use of the borough steam
road roller for which they- agree to
pay twelve dollars for each and every
actual working day it is in use, bills
payable monthly. Mr. Richard furth-
er, reported that the committee had
obligated the borough to the extent of
one hundred dollars for making a
change in the location of the state
highway where it intersects with the
borough line near Mallory’s black-
smith shop, and the action of the com-
mittee was approved by council. The
report of the borough manager was
submitted showing various repairs
made on the streets and the collection
of $36.00 for extra work done infront
of private properties.
The Water committee presented the
report of the borough manager in
connection with the water department,
detailing various repairs made and
leaks in water pipes corrected.
The Finance committee presented
the report of the borough treasurer
and asked for the renewal of an old
note for .$700 and the execution of a
new note for $5,000 for four months
to meet current expenditures, both of
which were authorized. The commit-
tee also presented the report of the
secretary of council that the tax du-
plicate for 1919 has been completed
and is ready to turn over to the col-
lector. The total assessed valuation
in the borough for the year 1919 is
given as $1,800,962, and the total tax
for borough, street and interest pur-
The water pumping question so far
as the contract between the State-
Centre Electric company and the bor-
ough is concerned was pretty thor-
oughly discussed but no definite de-
cision was reached and the matter
was continued in the hands of the
Bills approximating $2,400 were ap-
proved and council adjourned.
Frank Lynch Taken to Sunbury.
Frank Lynch, the cripple who un-
dertook to work the “crippled soldier”
sympathy game on Bellefonte people
last week in order to get money from
the Red Cross to help him on his jour-
ney to New York State, was taken to
Sunbury last Friday evening by an
officer who came up for that purpose.
The man’s parents live in Sunbury
and he was turned over to them. The
Bellefonte authorities were satisfied
to get rid of him, as they decided that
owing to his confirmed dope habit he
was not accountable in any way for
what he did.
In a letter to the “Watchman” this
week Dr. John Keichline, of Peters-
burg, states that he has no knowledge
whatever of the three prescriptions
found on the man bearing the signa-
ture “Dr. John Keichline,” as he nev-
er saw or heard of him until he read
the article in the “Watchman” telling
of the man’s actions in Bellefonte.
Prof. J. S. ¥. Rauthrauff, who
has been superintendent of the Phil-
ipsburg schools for a number of years

— Following a year’s service in
the army, both at home and abroad,
Dr. M. W. Reed has been discharged
and returned to Bellefonte this week
to resume his practice at his former
office in the Masonic Temple. Dr. W.
U. Irwin, who had charge of Dr.
Reed’s practice during his service in
the army, will remain in Bellefonte
and be associated with Dr. Reed in
the future. With Dr. Reed’s return
to Bellefonte all the Bellefonte phy-
sicians who were in service are now
back on the job with the exception of
Dr. SM. Hufl.
Moving a postoffice from one
building to another is not a very easy
job, a fact that can be substantiated
by the entire force in the Bellefonte
postoffice. Notwithstanding the fact
that they started moving in earnest
on Saturday morning it took until
Tuesday to get the screen properly
set so that the lobby could be kept
open for the use of the general public
while there is likely to be considera-
ble changing around inside for some
time yet in order to get everything
arranged so that the work will be
most convenient for all the employees.
The weekly community sing
which some of the enterprising and
musically-inclined people of the town
attempted to inaugurate last Thurs-
day evening didn’t inaugurate. Sam-
my Bryan, the well known band man
who was to have been on hand with
his cornet, failed to materialize and
with no music to lead the singing the
movement died a-bornin’ and the
small bunch of enthusiasts who had
gathered in the Diamond to lend their
voices in sending forth sweet songs
of melody went home in disgust. As
it looks now no further effort will be
made in this line.
——The court has refused a new
trial in the case of J. C. Condo vs. D. H.
Shivery and ordered judgment enter-
ed in favor of the plaintiff in the sum
of $554.00, the amount of the verdict
returned by a jury at the December
term of court, with interest from that
date. The case was an action brought
by Mr. Condo against Mr. Shivery to
recover damages for a threshing en-
gine that had blown up while being
used by the defendant, the gist of the
plaintiff’s evidence being that the ex-
plosion was caused by the engine not
being level at the time thus exposing
the crown sheet to the mercy of the
hot fire in the fire box.

The House of Lords has literal-
ly been lifted up and transplanted
from the top of Nittany mountainito |
a point on Muncy mountain above
Valley View, not far from the Burn-
side cabin. The House of Lords was
built upwards of twenty years ago by
less than half a dozen young men on
the very brink of the mountain above
Gregg station. For years it proved
a pleasant retreat for Bellefonte peo-
ple when they grew weary of the
strife and turmoil of town life, but
the onward march of progress in the
shape of the Rockview penitentiary
took up all the surrounding land for
use as a water shed, and the Lords
fell by the wayside one by one until
the Nittany mountain retreat was al-
most bereft of patronage. Recently
the idea was conceived to transplant
the cabin onto a delightful spot on
Muncy mountain and Monday was
utilized as moving day. In its new
location the House of Lords will
probably again grow in popularity but
it will hereafter lack that wonderful
view across the broad expanse of
Pennsvalley that was one of its great-
est charms as a place for a summer
Last Friday evening Miss Ruth
Badger was in Katz & Co’s store do-
ing some shopping and while waiting
for her change laid her purse down on
the counter. When she looked for it, |
it was gone and a hasty examination
failed to reveal it anywhere. There
were two colored women in the store
at the time and one of them made the
remark that she supposed they'd be
blamed for stealing the purse. Miss
Badger did not mind losing the purse,
as she had only a little change in it,
but there were one or more articles in
it she didn’t want to lose.” The color-
ed women left the store before she did
and walked down High street. Miss
Badger followed them down and told
her father, Harry Badger, at Twit-
mire’s store, and he called policeman
Elmer Yeager, who was across the
street, and the two of them overtook
the two women near the Bush house
and demanded the purse. Both vehe-
mently denied having taken it or seen
it, and the men finally walked away.
After they had gone the women turn-
ed around and at the bridge one walk-
ed ahead of the other and when the
one in the rear reached the side of the
bridge near Water street she was seen
throwing something into the creek, at
the same time dropping some torn pa-
per on the pavement. She then hasti-
ly walked up street. A number of
men soon gathered on the bridge and
the torn paper on being pieced togeth-
er proved to be a receipt that Miss
Badger had in her purse while the
purse and a dime were found on a
large stone that juts out from the
high wall along the creek, but the
special articles that Miss Badger par-
ticularly cared for could not be found.
REUNION OF BOAL TROOP.
Held at Boalshurg Saturday, When
Monument Was Dedicated to
Notwithstanding that Saturday
morning was rainy and threatening
the weather cleared up somewhat by
Saturday afternoon and the result
was over one thousand people assem-
bled at Camp Boal, at Boalsburg, to
witness the first reunion of the old
Boal troop, which served in France as
Company A, 107th machine gun bat-
talion and take part in the dedication
of a monument to those members of
the troop who gave their lives for the
cause. The people of Boalsburg and
vicinity took advantage of the occa-
sion to hold a picnic on the grounds
during the afternoon and evening and
thus helped to swell the crowd. Mu-
sic was furnished by the Modern
Woodsmen’s band, of State College.
About seventy-five members of the
troop were present at the gathering
and these ex-soldiers, headed by the
band, marched from the camp to the
newly erected monument promptly at
five o'clock, the hour for the exercis-
es. The program included an invoca-
tion by Rev. Father O’Hanlon after
which Mrs. W. F. Leitzell sang a
very appropriate solo, the accompa-
niment to which was played on a
French piano captured in a German
dugout by the members of the troop
and brought back to this country by !
Major Boal as a trophy of war. Im-
mediately following Mrs.
solo the monument was unveiled and
was dedicated to the memory of the
dead heroes by Major Theodore Da-
vis Boal in a very neat presentation
speech. It was accepted on the part
of the troop by Major Wilbur F. Leit-
The monument consists of a cross
taken from one of the battlefields in
France set in the breech of a captur- !
ed German “77,” and mounted on a
native limestone base with a Boche
machine gun at the bottom. On the
base of the monument are carved the
names of the thirteen young men who
gave their life for the great cause,
Hayes M. Wilson, Clearfield.
Bromley R. Smith, Lewisburg.
Eugene R. Davis, Harrisburg.
Michael A. Miller, Pittsburgh.
Donald J. Hile, Pleasant Gap.
Arthur Monroe, Lock Haven.
Ralph I. Dunlap, Pine Grove Mills.
Claude Kahle, New Castle.
Daniel J. Halpin, Pittsburgh.
William C. Conway, Wheeling, W. Va.
Lewis Crossovolt, address unknown.
James Thorpe, address unknown.
George Simcox, Philipsburg.
The roll of the honored dead was
called by second lieutenant Donald
Zimmerman and as each name was
read out a little girl dressed in white
advanced with a wreath and placed it
on the base of the monument. Fol-
lowing the above dedication exercises
there were brief addresses by Major
General William G. Price, who com-
manded the artillery of ‘the Twenty-
eighth ' division in "France, and Col.
David Davis, chief of staff of the 28th,
both of whom told of the fighting and
bravery of the soldiers of Pennsylva-
nia in the great world war.
Later an American flag which had
been carried through the campaign in
Trance and later floated over the
American army headquarters at
Goshen, Germany, was flung to the
breeze from the top of an iron flag-
pole presented the troop by Christ-
opher Morgan, general manager of
the Pittsburgh Steel company. At
the close of the exercises a buffet sup-
per was served the soldier guests and
the entire crowd enjoyed a picnic sup-
per furnished from the well laden
baskets of those present. The even-
ing was devoted to a reception, an in-
spection of the Boal museum and a
Bellefonte Taxi Driver Unwittingly
Helped Prisoner to Escape.
The “Watchman” last week con-
tained a brief item relative to the es-
cape of L. C. Statler, of Altoona, from
the western penitentiary at Rockview
on Wednesday morning but the man-
ner of his escape did not leak out un-
Statler made his getaway from the
gang he was working with some time
Wednesday morning and walked to
Pleasant Gap. There he represented
himself as a telephone lineman and
asked an automobilist coming to
Bellefonte to give him a lift into
town. The man very obligingly did
so. Arriving in Bellefonte Statler
walked boldly up to the Brockerhofl
house and accosted one of the well
known taxi drivers of Bellefonte on a
proposition to take him to Tyrone.
He told the same story about being a
telephone lineman and that he had
just received word that his wife was
very sick in Bellwood, but if he could
get to Tyrone he could take the troi-
ley from there to Bellwood. The taxi
driver asked ten dollars to make the
trip and the escaped prisoner pulled
out one dollar, gave him that and told
him when they got to Tyrone he
would go into the office and get him
the other nine.
Thereupon the taxi man headed it
for Tyrone. He made good time up
the valley and when they reached Ty-
rone the prisoner directed the taxi
man to the telephone office building
and told him to wait and he would go
in and get him his nine dollars. The
taxi ‘driver waited and waited and
waited until almost an hour and a
half passed and then he went into the
office to make inquiries for his man,
only to learn that he was a fake.
There was nothing left for the taxi
man to do but return home and it was
not until two days later that he learn-
ed that his passenger to Tyrone was
an escaped prisoner and that he had
fifty dollars (the reward for his re-
turn) within his clutches and didn’t
know it. ’

Red Cross Baseball Season Will End
The final game of the Red Cross
baseball season ' will be’ played: on
Hughes field ‘this (Friday) evening
between the North and South ward
teams, and owing to its growing dark
much earlier now than it did a month
ago the game will be called promptly
at 6:30 o’clock.
Last Friday evening the West ward
defeated the North by the score of 4
to 1 and while there are a number of
postponed and tie games between the
various teams that compose the
league the only two now figuring in
the pennant are the North and South
wards and as there is only one game
in which they both figure it has been
agreed by all the managers to make
that game this evening, and thus
close the season, as the evenings are
now too short to prolong the series.
Therefore go out to Hughes field
this evening and see the North and
South fight for the pennant. It is
sure to be a battle royal, and may the
best team win.
