Capt. Gillett Wants to go to the Re-
publican National Convention.
In another column of this issue ap-
pears the announcement that Capt.
Melville Gillett, of Smethport, Mec-
Kean county, is a candidate for dele-
gate to the Republican National con-
vention from this district.
For the information of our Repub-
lican readers we publish a brief sketch
of the gentleman who is seeking their
support of his aspirations.
Mr. Gillett is extensively engaged
in mining, banking and manufactur-
ing. Although always active in the
affairs of his party he has never been
a candidate for any office in the dis-
trict before. :
In two national emergencies he has
responded to the call. During the
Spanish-American war he enlisted in
Co. I, 3rd N. Y. Inf., winning the rank
of Sergeant. When the United States
entered the world war he put his bus-
iness interests aside and entered the
army, serving as a Captain in the
Air service, Regular army A. E. F.,
September 1917 to November 1918.
He was Chief Purchasing officer U. S.
Air service in France from October to
December, 1917. Inspector and train-
ing officer Air service, New York city,
from February to April, 1918. Avia-
tion officer and member of examining
board, Charleston, S. C., from April to
June, 1918. In command of Aviation
General Supply depot, Chicago, Ill.,
from June to November, 1918. For a
time Capt. Gillett was a resident of
the State of Ohio and during his res-
idence there, in addition to being
prominent in business pursuits he was
conspicuously active in military af-
fairs of the Buckeye State, holding a
commission as Colonel in the Ohio
National Guard.

A Move to Plant Trees in Memory of
Deceased Soldiers.
At the regular meeting of the
Woman’s club of Bellefonte last week
a communication was presentea from
the Woman’s club of Lock Haven sub-
mitting a proposition to plant trees
along the state. highway between
Bellefonte and Lock Haven as memor-
ials to those soldiers who gave their
lives during the world war. The prop-
osition as embodied in the communi-
cation is that the Lock Haven club
plant the trees from Lock Haven to-
ward Bellefonte and the Bellefonte
club plant toward Lock Haven. While
nothing definite enough has as yet
been done to assure the project being
carried to a successful issue the prop-
osition has merit and is one worthy
of most careful consideration.
There is no gainsaying the fact that
shade trees on each side of the state
highway between Bellefonte and Lock
Haven would greatly beautify that
thoroughfare and render the drive one
of the most delightful in the whole
State, but before any definite action
can be taken State Highway authori-
ties will have to be consulted. There
is hardly any doubt but that permis-
sion will be readily granted but the
Department may wish to confine the |
plantings to certain kinds of trees,
and at one time did suggest the plant-
ing of nut trees along all highways.
These would not only afford shade but
would be valuable for the nuts they
produced. In any event the ladies are
deserving of the hearty co-operation
of the public at large in anything they
may undertake in this line.
Babe Smothered to Death.
Harold Ray McElwain, five months’
old son of Mr. and Mrs. John McEI-
wain, of Marengo, this county, was
smothered to death on Wednesday
night of last week while sleeping be-
tween its parents while on a visit to
the home of Mrs. McElwain’s parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Guy Hillard, at Bell-
wood. The child was all right at mid-
night when nursed by its mother and
the parents supposed it was asleep
until they awoke on Thursday morn-
ing when they made the horrifying
discovery that in some way it had got-
ten under the bed clothing and turn-
ed over on its face, smothering to
death. The remains were taken to
Marengo where burial was made on
Saturday in the Ross church cemetery.
The regular meeting and thim-
ble bee of the W. C. T. U. will be held
at the home of Mrs. A. H. Sloop this
(Friday) evening. All members are
urged to be present.

ARCHEY.—George W. Archey, the :
well known patriarch of Spruce’
Creek valley, died very suddenly of |
heart failure on December 31st at his
home at Graysville. He was in his |
usual good health when he got up!
that morning and during the forenoon
went to the woodshed for an armful
of wood. Mrs. Gilliland, a neighbor,
saw him fall to the ground and as he
made no effort to get up went to his
assistance and was horrified to find
him dead.
Mr. Archey was about eighty-four
years old, having been born in Ireland
early in 1836. With his parents and
other members of the family he came
to America in 1848, and shortly there-
after located on the well-known Arch-
ey farm just east of Pine Grove Mills,
where J. D. Neidigh now lives. He
followed farming for many years, the
past forty years of his life being
spent in the vicinity of Graysville.
When only eighteen years of age he
married Mary Ann Archey and to
them were born ten children. Mrs.
Archey died some years ago but sur-
viving him are seven children, as fol-
lows: Hezekiah and Linn, of Mt.
Union; Kelly, of Harrisburg; Carrie,
of Aloona; Ella, of Tyrone; Mrs.
George Deter, of Graysville, and Mrs.
Johnson, of Tyrone.
He was a life-long member of the
Presbyterian church and his pastor,
Rev. R. M. Campbell, officiated at the
funeral which was held at ten o’clock
last Friday morning, burial being
made in the Graysville cemetery.
DRESHER.—Mrs. Sarah Dresher,
widow of James J. Dresher, passed
away at her home on the Branch at
noon on December 31st, following a
long illness with heart trouble and
other complications, aged 79 years, 5
months and 3 days. She was a daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Crawford
and was born in Gregg township, be-
ing the last of her father’s family to
pass away. On April 28th, 1858, she
was united in marriage to J. J. Dresh-
er, who later served in the Civil war
as a member of the 148th, Gen. Bea-
ver’s old regiment.
Her husband died about forty years
ago but surviving her are the follow-
ing children: Mrs. Henry Klechner,
flinburg; Mrs. R. H. Muth, of Mill-
mont; Mrs. Jane Boop, of Mifflinburg;
Murray C. and Miss Gertrude Dresh-
er, at home. She also leaves twenty
grand-children and twenty-four great
grand-children. Rev. S. C. Stover had
charge of the funeral services which
were held at ten o’clock on Monday
morning, burial being made in the
Rock Hill cemetery.
I i
HUNTER.—Mrs. Alice Downing
Hunter, wife of Prof. John Andrew
Hunter, of Boulder, Col., died at the
hospital in that place on Monday fol-
lowing a two week’s illness with spin-
al meningitis... Her death is unusual-
ly sad because in addition to her de-
voted - husband she leaves her aged
father, who is totally blind and has
been an'invalid the past eight months,
and her death followed less than two
years after that of her mother. Mrs.
Hunter was a Colorado woman and at
the time of her marriage to Mr. Hun-
ter, only two years ago, was an in-
structor in the University of Colorado.
Mr. Hunter is a son of the late
Capt. J. A. Hunter, of Stormstown.
He graduated at State College in 1890
and has been dean of engineering in
the University of Colorado for a num-
ber of years and also fills the position
of state inspector of engineering.
