Dr. Wirt, at the Lyric theatre. Dr.
Wirt, who is a very pleasing talker,
presented the condition of this sacri-
ficed nation in a manner that should
appeal to all classes of people. Sim-
ply and forcefully put, the story il-
lustrated by most beautiful pictures
of those eastern countries, gave to the
hearer an intimate knowledge of the
anguish of these people, without the
harrowing gruesomeness we have all
learned to associate with this stricken
——FEverybody who has been at-
tending the Scenic and Lyric lately
have been exceptionally well pleased
with the motion pictures shown at
both places. They have been unusu-
ally interesting and high-class in
every way. In fact, the motion pic-
ture that will attract the public these
days must be good, and film compa-
nies have come to realize that fact, so
that they are not content to put out
the mediocre stuff of years gone by
but énsist on nothing but the best.
And this is the kind shown at the
Scemic every evening in the week and
at the Lyric two and three nights a
week. Every night you stay away
you miss good pictures.

State College Lodge No. 700 Consti-
tuted Wednesday Noon by State
Grand Master.
A new page was turned in the his-
tory of the Masonic fraternity in Cen-
tre county at moon on Wednesday
when a new lodge was organized at
State College with the official title of
State College Lodge No. 700. The
ceremonies incident thereto were held
in the I O. O. F. hall at the College
and were conducted by the right wor-
shipful grand master, John S. Sell, of
Greensburg, and his staff. The new
lodge starts off most auspiciously
with a list of fifty-five charter mem-
bers, natives of ten different States,
and the prospects are very good for
a rapid increase in membership. In
the neighborhood of one hundred vis-
iting Masons were present to see the
new lodge constituted and at the com-
pletion of the ceremonies a delicious
luncheon was served at the Universi-
ty club.
Accompanying the Grand Master
as part of his staff were grand senior
warden Samuel Goodyear, of Carlisle,
acting as right worshipful deputy
grand master; past master Dr.
Franks, of Huntingdon, acting grand
senior warden; past master William
Reiser, of New Kensington, acting
grand junior warden; John A. Perry,
of Philadelphia, grand secretary;
Thomas R. Patton, of Philadelphia,
grand treasurer, and Arthur Bacon,
of Harrisburg, grand marshall; Dis-
trict deputy grand master W. Har-
Walker, of Bellefonte, was
present and assisted in the ceremo-
nies, making the address for the
Grand Master. The new Lodge will
be included in the district over which
Mr. Walker, as district deputy, has
The officers of the new lodge duly
elected and as installed by the Grand
Master for the ensuing Masonic year

monies; Thomas I, Mairs, chaplain;

rison Thompson, tyler.
The day’s ceremonies were very
impressive and were conducted most
successfully from start to finish.
The visitors included prominent Ma-
sons fr

Superior Silica Brick Company Re-
: organized.
Stockholders of the Superior Silica
Brick company held a meeting at the
offices of the Eastern Refractories
company in this place last Saturday
and effected a complete reorganiza-
tion by electing the following officers:
President, Charles W. Albright, Al-
toona; vice president and general
manager, Ives L. Harvey, Bellefonte;
secretary, Rev. H. S. McClintock,
Philipsburg; treasurer, John S. Gin-
ter, Tyrone.
The new board of directors is com-
posed of the following: Charles W.
Albright, Fred J. Albright and H. A.
Hutchinson, Altoona; John S. Ginter
and William Fuoss, Tyrone; Rev. H.
S. McClintock, Philipsburg; Ellis L.
Orvis and Ives L. Harvey, Bellefonte;
J. Ellis Harvey, Orviston; Mr. Kelsey,
Flemington, and Mr. Morgan, of Phil-
adelphia, the latter also holding the
position of sales manager.
The plant of the company is locat-
ed at Port Matilda and has a capaci-
ty of 35,000 bricks a day. They em-
ploy sixty-eight men and at the pres-
ent time are running full time.
Just a little mystery surrounds the
burning to death of Miss Alice Heck-
man, at the home of her brother, Ad-
am T. Heckman, near Penn’s Cave, on
Monday. The woman was discovered
early in the forenoon with her cloth-
ing all in flames. Members of the
household succeeded in extinguishing
the fire but not before the woman was
burned so badly that she died the
same evening. Though suffering ter-
ribly she was conscious a part of the
time before she died but refused to
disclose how her clothing caught fire.
Miss Heckman was about fifty-
eight years old and is survived by
three brothers and one sister, namely:
Adam T. Heckman, with whom she
made her home; John, Daniel and
Mrs. Decker, of Spring Mills. The
funeral will be held today, burial to
be made in the Heckman cemetery.
His Greatest Honor.
In our notice of the death of the
late Joseph L. Montgomery last week
we failed to state that he was presi-
dent of the American Association of
Independent Match Manufacturers, a
union of all the leading independent
match factories in the country that
are not controlled by the Diamond
Match company. To Mr. Montgomery
probably more than any other one
man is due the credit of bringing the
independent concerns into co-opera-
tion under one general head, and this
his friends have always considered
his greatest achievement.

and Mrs. Trood Parker, of Clearfield.

—The first half year of college
; work at The Pennsylvania State Col-
' lege will be completed on January
31st, after a week of final examina-
tions scheduled to start next Satur-
| will receive diplomas on Monday, Feb-
ruary 2nd. This special “war class”
numbers 112 and is composed almost
entirely of men who dropped their col-
lege work to enter the service.
— Many valuable gifts have been
received during the past few months
by the school of engineering at The
Pennsylvania State College from man-
ufacturers of machinery. A large
amount of machine equipment was
lost a year ago when the main engi-
neering building was destroyed by
fire, and this is gradually being re-
placed by purchases and gifts. The
shops at the College are now the best
equipped of their kind in the State.
——Among the diversions already
planned for the near future in Belle-
fonte are a dance in the armory by
the American Legion Post on Febru-
ary 11th and a minstrel show for the
benefit of the Odd Fellows band, the
date of the latter not yet having been
definitely set, but it is hoped to ar-
range it for some time in February.
Some of the old-time minstrel men of
Bellefonte will be in charge, and for
this reason something real good may
be expected.
Local Institute.
The local institute of District No.
3, comprising the teachers of Belle-
fonte borough and of Spring, Benner
and Walker townships, will be held in
the auditorium of the Bellefonte High
school on Friday, January 30th. There
will be two sessions, in the afternoon
at 2:30 o’clock, and in the evening, at
8 o’clock.
Interesting program, including
demonstrations with real pupils, mu-
sic by the High school orchestra and
talks illustrated by the stereopticon,
have been arranged. All friends of
the schools are cordially invited.
Visiting teachers will be served
with supper under the management
of the household arts department of
the Bellefonte schools.
A Real, Old Fashioned Winter.
Of course the very old timers will
scoff at the kind of weather we have
had this winter and say it is nothing
to what they had when they were
. boys, but it is winter enough for the
present generation with coal from six
to twelve dollars a ton and all kinds
of eats soaring in the sky. Seven
weeks of it mow right in a stretch,
with the thermometer never above the
freezing point and a number of nights
“good winter. And then
had predicted a mild spell with thaw-
ing weather, came the deepest snow
of the season.
Saturday and Sunday’s high winds
drifted the country roads so that they
were totally blocked at many places
throughout the county. Scores of
men were at work on Saturday open-
ing up the main highways but Sun-
day’s wind closed them up again. On
Monday the state road between Belle-
fonte and Lock Haven was impassa-
ble in some places and the result was
the regular bus service was tempor-
arily suspended. Up in Ferguson
township all the roads were blocked
and what little traveling was done
was through fields. The same condi-
tion prevailed in other portions of the
county. In fact, it has been the real,
simon-pure winter weather, the kind
our grandfathers talked about, and it
can’t end too soon for us.
Chinese Boys to Study Milling at
Penn State.
Encircling the globe in his search
for an education that will aid in the
operation of flour mills in his native
country, Ying-Saing Hwa, of Wusih,
China, arrived at State College last
week to enter the course in milling
engineering at The Pennsylvania
State College, the only course of its
kind offered by a college or universi-
ty in the United States. He recently
left the University of Nanking, Chi-
na, where he was a junior in the ag-
ricultural school, and will be enrolled
in the junior class at Penn State with-
in a few days. Within the next month
he will be joined by his cousin, Yang
Lee, who was also a student at the
University of Nanking.

and milling districts of Europe. Up-
on their return home they will become
assistants to their uncle, T. K. Yung,
recognized as the “Mill King” of Chi-
na, who owns a series of thirteen
American-built mills in the Kaingsu
Province, near Shanghai. At least
two years will be spent in this coun-
try, and summer vacations from col-
lege will be occupied by working in
the plant of one of the largest manu-
facturers of industrial machinery in
the country, at Milwaukee, Wis. By
the time they return to China. they
aim to know American methods of
milling throughout, and their travel
through America and Europe will aid
them in taking the latest approved
methods of the industry back to Chi-
At Penn State the Chinese students
will be instructed in the design of
flour mills, the operation of milling
machinery, the grading and identifi-
cation of grains, the analysis of flours,

ious grades of flour, all under the di-

A hollow in a glen.
Evening before, and morning of,
Feast of the Red Corn.”
The maidens of the Wanta tribe of
Indians once every year repair to a se-
cluded spot to celebrate “The Feast of
the Red Corn.”
The one who in the feast finds the
first red ear of corn expresses her
dearest wish to the sorceress (an old
squaw of the tribe), who calls upon
the gods of the Four Winds to give a
sign that the wish will be granted.
This year the Queen Weeda Wanta
joins the maidens, hoping to get the
red ear because of her great desire to
know of the welfare of the King. The
scene opens with the entrance of the
maidens into the glen where the feast
shall take place.
The old squaw tells the maidens
that the Four Winds have whispered
to her that there will be no wish
granted this year because some one
has committed a grievous offense.
Impee Light, the younger sister of
the Queen, is suspected of being the
culprit and is threatened with burn-
ing at the stake.
The terrible mischief that Impee
Light did was to have the three chil-
dren play a joke by standing in shal-
low water under the canoe after it
was upside down. She put them
where it was not deep and they all
tipped over the canoe and went under
it, so their heads were out of the wa-
ter. As this was only a joke the
Queen insists seriously that Impee
Light has really saved the lives of the
little ones and on this account, the
Four Winds must be appeased and
surely will hearken to the maidens.
The old squaw undertakes to invoke
the Winds again and this time with
The feast is celebrated, the Queen
finds the red ear, and in answer to her
expressed wish she sees a vision of
her King, who is alive and well and
on his journey home.

Ratrick McArdle Court of St.
Sunday was a big day for the ladies
of St. John’s Catholic church, as it
marked the organization and institu-
tion of the Patrick McArdle Court of
St. Isabella, a co-organization of the
Knights of Columbus. About seven-
ty-five delegates of the order were
present from Lock Haven, Kane and
Renovo to assist in instituting the
new court. Included in the visitors
were the state regent, Miss Francis
Maher, of Kane; Mrs. George McNer-
ney, grand regent of the Lock Haven
court, and Miss McGuire, grand re-
gent of the Renovo court.
At the morning services at the
Catholic church Father Downes took
occasion to explain the purposes of
the organization and the great good it
can do in any community. The Court
was instituted in the hall of the
Knights of Columbus, in the Rey-
nolds building, with an all day pro-
gram. Music was furnished by the
church choir from Lock Haven. AY
six o’clock a banquet was served in
the hall by the Bellefonte ladies.
The new Court starts out with a list
of seventy-three members and the
following officers:
Mrs. Odillie A. Mott; vice grand re-
gent, Miss Anna McLaughlin; proph-
etess, Miss Mary Woods; historian,
Miss Agnes Shields; financial secreta-
ry, Miss Catharine McGowan; treas-
urer, Miss Elizabeth Cooney; Moni-
tor, Miss Marie Doll; sentinel, Miss
Helen Beezer; musician, Miss Helen
Robb; chaplain, Father Downes; trus-
tees, Mrs. Harry J. Jackson, Mrs. Ja-
cob Gross, Mrs. Thomas Shaughnes-
sey, Mrs. Philip Beezer, Mrs. Allen
Waite and Mrs. Jack Robinson.

The unfortunate young man was a
son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Beightol and
was born twenty-six years ago. He
had been employed in the mines the
past eight years and was a careful
and conscientious workman who stood
high in the estimation of his employ-
ers. An unusually sad feature of Mr.
Beightol’s untimely death is the fact
that he was married last Saturday to
Miss Katie Watson, of Snow Shoe,
and the bride of three days is now a
widow. He also leaves his parents
and two brothers, Jacob and William.

Coombs—Kepler.—At least one
young woman of Centre county bene-
fitted to the extent of securing a hus-
band through her engagement to work
for the government in Washington,
according to the announcement of the
marriage in that city, on Thursday of
