Florence Krape, of Centre Hall,
| Drowned in Automobile Accident.
Last Saturday morning Alfred
Krape, of Centre Hall, with his two
: daughters, Florence and Mrs. Harry
| Reish and the latter’s three year old
son, and his brother, James S. Krape,
who recently came east from Seattle,
started on an automobile trip to
Reedsville in Mr. Krape’s Dodge car
for the special purpose of visiting
friends. Notwithstanding the fact
that the road was icy in spots and Mr.
Krape had no chains on his car he got
over the mountains all right and was
traveling along at a fair rate of speed
about three miles on this side of Mil-
roy when he met a team on a rather
sharp curve. He turned out to pass
the team when he saw right ahead of
him a narrow bridge over Laurel run.
He attempted to steer the car back
onto the road but the rear wheels
slipped on the ice and to avert run-
' ning against the side of the bridge
he threw on the brakes with the result
that the car skidded into the side of
the bridge, knocked off the railing and
toppled over into the creek, a distance
of about eight feet.
The water in the stream at that
place was about two feet deep but
the car fell in such a way that it
formed a fairly good dam and backed
up the water. Mr. Krape was thrown
through the curtains of the car and
escaped with only a slight shock. He
at once went to the assistance of the
others and helped his brother, James
Krape, who occupied the front seat
with him, out of the car. Next he got
out his daughter, Mrs. Reish and her
little son, the latter being unconscious
from being under the water, but when
efforts were made to rescue Florence
Krape they found her pinned fast un-
der the car. While frantically en-
deavoring to release her a man from
Penn Hall came along in a runabout
but the two men were unable to raise
the car far enough to get the impris-
oned girl out. While still tugging at
the car William MecNitt and three oth-
er men in a car happened along and
the entire force succeeded in prying
up the car and getting the young girl
out, but she was dead when released,
having been under water thirty-five
minutes. She had a deep blue mark
on one cheek and it is possible that
she was knocked unconscious when
the car went over as she was not seen
to struggle once while under water.
" The little boy was quickly revived
and suffered no ill effects from his
: submersion. Mrs. Reish was uninjur-
ed except by shock, but James Krape
was slightly injured on the stomach
"and right leg. The man from Penn
Hall conveyed the body of the dead
girl to Milroy, while Mr. McNitt took
the other members of the party to the
same town and saw that they got dry
clothing.. Automobiles from Centre
noon and brought ' the entire party
back to Centre Hall.
Florence Krape, the girl who was
drowned, was fourteen years old and
a bright and winsome maid. Her
parents and sister, Mrs. Reish, are
her only survivors. The funeral was
held Wednesday morning, Rev. R.
Raymond Jones officiating, and burial
was made in the Centre Hall ceme-

stitches to close. As the result of the |
accident he was housed up over |
Christmas and is still unable to walk.

~——January 6th, called Twelfth
day, the feast of the Epiphany of

forth the great christian doctrine of
the Incarnation of God underlying the
festivities of the holiday season,

dom given those living outside our
larger cities, than that of hearing Ol-

the history of athletics at State that
a big eastern team has been sched-
uled to play on the home field. Anoth-
er big game at home will be with the
University of Nebraska eleven on’
Pennsylvania day. This team has for
years been the champions of the Mis-
souri valley conference and their ap-
pearance at State College next fall
ought to prove a big attraction for the
Pennsylvania day crowd. The one
important game missing from the
schedule is Cornell, and that is not be-

cause the Cornell management re-

Crider’s Planing Mill Burned.
The planing mill of P. B. Crider &
Son, in Bellefonte, was totally de-
stroyed by fire on Saturday, Decem-
ber 20th, with all its contents. The
building was owned by G. M. Gamble
and had been used as a planing mill
for upwards of fifty years. The
skewer factory operated by H. N. Cri-
der was also located in the building.
While there is no definite knowledge
as to the origin of the fire it is believ-
ed to have been caused by thawing
out water pipes with a blow torch.
Bellefonte firemen succeeded in sav-
ing adjoining buildings and lumber
piles, notwithstanding the fact that
the heat was unusually intense. _
The loss is estimated at from ten to
fifteen thousand dollars. Mr. Gamble
had no insurance on the building while
Mr. Crider’s interests were practical-
ly covered by insurance. Whether the
mill will be rebuilt or not has not yet
been decided.

Chester Heisy Narrowly Escapes
Death from Petromortis.
| Chester Heisy, of Pleasant Gap, is
alive this morning but the fact that
he is is little short of a miracle.
He is one of the employees of the
Beatty Motor Co., in this place, and
drives to and from his home at Pleas-
. ant Gap in a Ford ruabout. Wednes-
- day evening he came into the garage
‘ for his night turn, arriving here prob-
"ably about 5:45. Paul Mallory and
Milan Walker had not left the place
: yet and both of them heard a motor
running outside the entrance door.
Such things are of constant occur-
| rence there and they paid no atten-
| tion to it at first, but when it contin-
ued and no effort was made by its
| driver to open the door and enter they
went to investigate. They found
| Chester lying over on his side on the
| seat of the car totally unconscious and
his face and hands blue.
Lifting him out as quickly as pos-
sible a physician was summoned and
| after considerable work he was reviv-
ed and recovered sufficiently to be
taken home.
An investigation revealed the fact
i that the union on the exhaust pipe,
that on Ford cars is directly under
| the foot board, had worked loose per-
. mitting the entire exhaust to escape
there instead of going on back
| through the muffler to the rear of the
car. Chester says he doesn’t remem-
ber anything later than when he
turned into the garage off High
street, yet he must have been con-
scious up to the very moment that he
reached the door at the rear, for his
brake was set, the clutch out and the
car had been stopped at the proper
place and in the right way. At that
instant he must have gotten the in-
hallation of gas that overcame him
before he could get out of the car.
The singular part of it is that it
was an open car. While the top was
up there were no curtains on so that
the gas must have been unusually
deadly to have overcome him with so
much fresh air about.
It is quite probable that he was in-
haling a small amount of the gas all
the way in from the Gap, but as he
was running fast then the fresh air
partially counteracted it, but when he
turned into the garage entrance he
slowed down, and being in a sheltered
alley way, got more gas and less pure
Stine Verdict $116,035.23.
When the last issue of the “Watch-
man” went to press the jury was still
out in the case of S. B. Stine, of Osce-
ola Mills, against the Pennsylvania
railroad company for damages for the
destruction of his foundry by fire al-
leged to have been caused by a spark
from a passing locomotive, and the
verdiet they finally returned was in
favor of the plaintiff in the sum of
$116,035.28, one of the largest actual
damage verdicts returned in Pennsyl-
vania in many years. :
In proving his loss Mr. Stine claim-
ed $15,660.96 for buildings, lighting
and heating equipment, and the jury
allowed $15,442.12..
The claim for machinery, tools, ete.,
totally destroyed was placed at $36,
092.71, and the jury allowed $35,-
132.45. For machinery and tools only
partially destroyed $61,730.37 was
claimed and the jury allowed $58,-
376.52. For loss on profits on con-
tracts on hand, $10,178.12 was claim-
ed, no part of which was allowed by
the jury. On a claim for interest on
items of loss for twenty-six months,
amounting to $14,164.28, the jury al-
lowed $7,082.14. Immediately upon
hearing the verdict counsel for the
Pennsylvania railroad company made
a motion for a new trial and appealed
to the court to set aside the verdict on
the grounds of it being unduly ex-
The Old Homestead.
With its delightfully pure and ap-
pealing sentiment, the greatest of all
comedy dramas, Denman Thompson's
“The Old Homestead,” will be pre-
sented at Garman’s for one night on-
ly, Tuesday, January 6th. “The Old
Homestead” tells the story of the
Whitcomb family, who owned a little
farm near Swanzey, New Hampshire.
They were kind hearted folks, who
made the world a great deal better for
their having lived in it. Uncle Joshua
was a quaint character, full of wise
sayings and the Poor Richard of that
part of the country. This lovable
character, made famous by the late
Denman Thompson, is now portrayed
by William Lawrence. Before his
death Mr. Thompson told Mr. Law-
rence that he hoped he would contin-
ue as “Uncle Josh,” as the play would
out-live him and run on indefinitely.
His prediction has been true, as the
play is now on its thirty-third annual
tour. This will be counted on as one of
the season’s cleanest and most worthy
Recent Births.
