——The County Commissioners are |
now distributing the ballots. for use
at next Tuesday’s election.
——The official opening and house- |
warming of the House of Lords, at |
its new location on Muncy mountain,
will take place today.
——A letter box has finally been
attached to one of the side doors of
the postoffice where letters can be
dropped in at night after the office
has been closed. :
——The thimble bee of the ladies
of the Reformed church will be held
Friday afternoon, this week, at the
home of Mrs, E. E. Ardery, on Rey-’
nolds avenue. :
— The ladies of the Lutheran
church will give a chicken and waffle
supper in the basement of the church,
Thursday evening, November 6th,
serving to begin at five o’clock. Tick-
ets will sell for seventy-five cents, the
proceeds to be for the benefit of the
church. ve ; ; !
— “The Right to Happiness” is |
the name of the big motion picture
featuring that inimitable film actress,
Dorothy Phillips, which will be shown
at the Scenic Thursday and Friday
nights of next week. By many it is
said to be a better ‘picture than
“Hearts of Humanity.” Matinees |
both days. Don’t fail to see it. |
— Tickets for ex-President Wil- |
liam H. Taft’s lecture at State Col-
lee on the evening of November 22nd
will range in price from 25 cents to
$1.00, and will be on sale next week
at the Athletic store, State College.
The ex-President has been requested
to speak on the topic of the League
of Nations, and so far as now known,
will do so. : : %
—A Centre county farmer who
tried to sell several hogs in Bellefonte
last week avers that the best offer he
could get was fifteen cents a pound
dressed, and he didn’t sell the hogs. |
Assuming the farmer’s story %o be
true it would indicate that the whole-
sale price of meats is coming down,
but no one would suspect it from the
retail prices charged ‘the consumer.
— Lieut. R. D. Coble, a former
member of the French aviation serv-
ice, did not deliver his lecture, “Paris
to Versailles,” in the court house on
Wednesday night for the benefit of
the Bellefonte Camp of the American
Legion, but it was not the Lieuten-
ant’s fault. He came to Bellefonte as
per schedule but whoever had the ar-
rangements for the lecture in charge
failed to make the necessary prepara-
tions for same and the result was the
court house was not opened and there
was no place in which the Lieutenant
could deliver his lecture.
——At the election next Tuesday
the people of Rush township will vote
on a proposed bond issue of $20.000
for the purpose of erecting a central-
ly located High school building. No
school facilities that can ke given the
boys and girls these days can be too
good for them; ‘and that is the princi
pal argument in favor of the loan.
hile the question is one that con-.
cerns the people of Rush township
alone, yet we feel sure that they all
have the best interests of their chil-
dren at heart, and in no way can they
show this more thoroughly than in
providing for them the best schooling
facilities possible. ; Sadeociaadn
{——There are some people in Cen-
tte county who have all kinds of faith
in the fact that something will yet
turn up to prevent prohibition from
becoming effective, as two applica-
tions have already been filed for
liquor licenses next year. Under the
Brooks high license law such applica- |
tions must be filed not less than |
twenty-one days before the date of |
license court, which is about Novem-
ber 15th, but with total prohibition |
by next January almost a positive
certainty there naturally is consider- |
able curiosity as to why a present |
holder of liquor license should wish |
to secure a license for next year.
'Harpster—Jolloss.—Anthony Chas. |
and Miss
Harpster, of Bellefonte,
Helen Mae Jolloss, of Renovo, jour-
neyed to Williamsport last Friday
where they were united in marriage
at the parsonage of the Pine street
Methodist church. In the absence of
Rev. B. H. Hart, the Methodist pas-
tor, Rev. C. E. Granger, of the Pres-
byterian Church of the Covenant,
performed the ceremony. For the
present Mr. and Mrs. Harpster will
reside at Renovo.
Rev. Joseph P. Thomas, the new :
pastor of the Milesburg Baptist
church will begin his labors there on
Sunday morning, Nov. 2nd, when
services will be held at 11 o’clock.
Rev. Thomas comes to Milesburg
from Hunlock’s Creek.
Prohibition Now the Law.
Washington, Oct. 28.—Prohibition |
is now the law of the land in its most
drastic form, for the Senate today
voted to override President Wilson's
veto of the prohibition enforcement
Act. The vote was 65 to 20, or eight
votes more than were needed. As the
House had already hastened, last
night, to reject the veto, the bill now
becomes a law and the sale of any
beverage containing more than one-
half of one per cent. of alcohol is a
crime against the majesty of the gov-
ernment of the United States.
It will remain a crime, punishable
by drastic penalty, until the Senate
ratifies the treaty with Germany and
a covenant of the League of Nations.
"It was announced at the White House
today that as soon as the treaty is
ratified President Wilson will issue a
roclamation declaring that the war
is over and that the demobilization of
the army is completed.
When the President issues the proc-
lamation above referred to it will
mean a brief wet spell for the coun-
try, or until January 26th, 1920, when
the constitutional prohibition will be-
come operative.
