— The U. S. weather man at
Washington deserves a chromo for
the correctness of his predictions of
the. weather a week in advance, but it
is depressing enough to have to en-
dure the kind he has been handing
out lately without knowing it a week
in advance.
When you hear the cry “Stop
Thief,” you naturally will stop and
look to see where the thief is. But
this evening “Stop Thief” will be pre-
sented at Garman’s opera house by
The Thespians, of State College.
Don’t fail to see them, as the play is
somewhat of a departure from the
usual role essayed by The Thespians.

Official Vote Cast at the Election in
Centre County. :
The official count of the vote cast at
the election on Tuesday of last week
was made on Thursday afternoon by
Judge Quigley, prothonotary D. R,
Foreman, J. Thomas Mitchell and
Ivan Walker. The compilation shows
some very decided changes from the
totals published last week but they do
not affect the results in any way. In
fact most of the changes increase
rather than diminish the Republican
majorities. The vote on county aud-
itor was increased on each candidate
and brought the two Democratic can-
didates so close together that Stover
has a bare majority of six over Con-
do. Following is the complete official
vote cast in the county for all candi-
dates on the county ticket:

Historic Home to be Moved to State
Dr. G. G. Pond, of State College,
last Thursday purchased at public
auction the Dr. Priestly homestead at
Northumberland for $6,000. Dr.
Priestly came from England in the
early part of the eighteenth century,
having been one of the leading chem-
ists in that country before being driv-
en out by persecution. He located at
what is now Northumberland, being
one of the pioneer settlers of that
part of the Susquehanna valley.
"There he built a home and in the later
years became celebrated as the dis-
coverer of oxygen. His old home is
one of the most historic in the State,
and the room in which he conducted
his chemical experiments has been
kept practically as it was during his
life, through the biggest part of two
Dr. Pond, who is head of the chem-
istry department at The Pennsylva-
nia State College, announced after
purchasing the homestead that he will
have it moved to State College. It
will be set upon the spacious grounds
surrounding the college and will be
used as a memorial to Dr. Priestly,
the discoverer of oxygen and one of
the greatest chemists of his day. The
building, which dates back to the Rev-
olutionary period, will be moved in
seciions. Dr. Pond stated that he
hoped to have the engineers there to
begin work of the removal this fall.
The task of moving the building will
be quite a feat of engineering.
“ Two Big Football Games.
Two big football games are sched-
uled for Hughes field, Bellefonte, one
tomorrow and the other on Saturday
of next week. They promise to be
“hair raisers” and thrill the crowd on
the side lines, which ought to be large
on both occasions. The contest to-
morrow will be between the Mansfield
Normal and the Bellefonte Academy
teams, and game will be called
promptly at 3 p. m. The Mansfield
team is among the strongest prep
elevens in the State.
The game on Saturday of next
week will be between the Academy
and Dickinson Seminary, of Williams-
port. This also should be a struggle
worth seeing, as Dickinson always has
a strong eleven. This game will be
called at 3 p. m.
The local rooters should attend
both these games and encourage the |
boys from the hill in their efforts to!
win laurels for Bellefonte. The
Academy team is worthy of your sup-
port, as shown in their victory over
the Altoona All Scholastics and the
great fight they put up two weeks ago
at State College against the Fresh-
men team when they kept them from
crossing the goal line and only allow-
ed them to score a safety touchdown.
A Christmas Bazaar.
Don’t forget the Christmas bazaar
to be held in the Episcopal parish
house Thursday of next week, Novem-
ber 20th, at two o'clock p. m. Un-
usual Christmas cards, practical and
fancy articles suitable for gifts, and
all kinds of good things to eat, includ-
ing coffee and doughnuts, will be of-
fered for sale both afternoon and
evening. The Jack Horner Christmas
pie will not be good to eat, but it will
be full of “plums.” Go and try one.
The Aid society of the Re-
formed church will hold their annual
Thanksgiving market November 26th,
in the W. C. T. U. room. Home made
bread, rolls, cake, ete., will be on sale.
