The Mystery of a Five Dollar Gold
There is a farmer living down Nit-
tany valley way who is quite anxious
to know something definite about a
five dollar gold piece that he received
as a Christmas present, but at latest
reports the gift was shrouded in mys-
tery. According to the story the gen-
tleman in question placed the gold
piece in an envelope which he left lie
in the room among a lot of other
Christmas presents belonging to
members of the family. Finally there
came the day when the women made
a general clean up, and as is general-
ly the case all the odd bits of paper,
etc., went into the stove.
Just about that time the man of the
house began to look for the envelope
containing his five dollar gold piece
and naturally was very much concern-
ed when he discovered that it was
among the missing. His wife admit-
ted that it might have been thrown in-
to the stove in the general cleanup.
Of course what had been done could
not be undone so the gentleman in
question decided to do the next best
thing. He sifted the ashes in the
stove and was rewarded by finding a
pellet of light colored metal that had
a flash of gold. It was just about the
right size for a melted five dollar gold
piece and naturally he didn’t have a
thought but that the pellet was his
five dollars.
The next time he came to Belle-
fonte he brought the metal with him
and took it to the Centre County bank
with the request that they send it to
the mint in Philadelphia and get its
value in money. The little bit of met-
al was forthwith forwarded to the
mint and in due time returned to the
bank with the information that a test
showed that it was not gold, nor even
contained a trace of gold.
And right there is where the mys-
tery deepened. If the gold piece was
not thrown into the stove what be-
came of it? And if it was thrown in-
to the stove and the metal formed
was what was left of it after it had
gone through the fiery furnace then
it would seem that the gold was coun-
terfeit; and if it was counterfeit, had
it passed through banks as such or
how did it come to be in circulation?
It surely couldn’t have been a genuine
coin, because the value of the gold
alone in a real coin is now equal to
the face value, with the alloy extract-
First Lieut. in France; Then Buck
Private at Penn State.
To have served as a first lieutenant
with a machine gun company that
went through the Argonne and the
second battle of the Marne with the
28th Division, and then come back
home to become a “buck private in the
rear ranks” of the Penn State regi-
ment of cadets, is the result of the
fortunes of war for Charles G. Cruse,
of Bellefonte, a Freshman at State
College. His military career, from
enlistment as a corporal in the Na-
tional Guard in 1916 when he served
on the border, to his discharge from
the national army after his return
from overseas, covers three years.
Yet when he matriculated last fall
there was nothing else for him to do
but go out and join the balance of the
Freshman class in “close order” drill.
This was due to the compulsory
military training enforced at Penn
State, where for two years all stu-
dents "are instructed in military sci-
ence and tactics. But Cruse soon
gained the rank of regimental ser-
geant major, the highest cadet office
awarded a Freshman in the organiza-
tion. His service on the border was
with the machine gun troop organized
by Major Theodore Boal, at Boals-
burg. He was seventeen years of age
when he first enlisted.
Turnpike Co. After Higer Rates.
The Bald Eagle, Nittany, Brush and

HAWES.—The many Bellefonte
friends of Dr. and Mrs. George E.
Hawes, of Harrisburg, learned with
deep regret of the sudden death of
Mrs. Hawes last Friday morning. She
had been in the best of health all
week and quite active in church work,
having been hostess at teas given at
the parsonage on both Tuesday and
Wednesday evening for the women of
the Market Square church congrega-
tion. On Thursday evening she attend-
ed a meeting of the Presbyterian as-
sociation at the church. When she
returned home she spoke of feeling
somewhat fatigued and remarked up-
on the fact that two or three times
during the evening she felt as if she
was losing consciousness but the feel-
ing had passed away quickly. When
Dr. Hawes got up about seven o’clock
Friday morning Mrs. Hawes spoke to
him and said she would lie in bed a
little longer. A few minutes later
her husband was attracted by a moan
and going to the bed found Mrs.
Hawes unconscious. Physicians were
hastily summoned but when they ar-
rived it was too late. Blood pressure
on the brain was assigned as the
Eva McKean Hawes was a daugh-
ter of William J. and Rebecca Mec-
Kean, and was born in Mercer fifty-
two years ago. She was married to
Rev. Hawes in 1890 and shortly there-
after they went to Portland, Oregon,
where they resided several years.
They then returned to Mercer, went
from there to Braddock and came
from the latter place to Bellefonte.
Dr. Hawes was pastor of the Belle-
fonte Presbyterian church about five
years and during that time Mrs.
Hawes was unusually active in all
kinds of church work. They left
Bellefonte in 1915 when Dr. Hawes
accepted a call to the pastorate of the
Market Square Presbyterian church,
Harrisburg, and that city has been
their home ever since.
In addition to her husband she is
survived by three children, Helen Re-
becca Hawes, Mary Walden Hawes,
the latter a sophomore at the West-
ern College for Women at Oxford,
Ohio, and Edward McKean Hawes.
She also leaves one brother and a sis-

one years old. He enlisted for service
in the Civil war in Company G, 51st

Pennsylvania railroad company and
continued there until his retirement
in 1900, He was a member of the

Tyrone. Funeral services were held
at his late home at two o'clock on
Monday afternoon by Rev. A. S. Fa-
sick, assisted by other local pastors,

500,000 Starving Near One Great
Within a radius of 100 miles of the |
city of Erivan, Armenia, more than
500,000 destitute refugees are wan-
dering about like nomads, clothed in
vermin-infested rags and with scarce-
ly enough food to keep them alive, ac-
cording to estimates made by How-
ard Heinz, representative of the
American food commission in the
Near East. Mr. Heinz says that the
30,000 tons of food already shipped to
this district from America brought
temporary partial relief, but that the
supply will be entirely exhausted be-
fore winter. From that time until the
harvest in the autumn of 1920 this
destitute half-million, including many
thousands of children, will be depend-
ent entirely upon additional outside
relief. It is absolutely impossible for
the people of the country to give them
any aid. Those who have food subsist
on the smallest possible ration to save
enough to keep them alive during the
winter. The Red Cross, which gave
some aid to these starving people, has
now withdrawn, leaving their only
hope centered about the Near East
To quote Commissioner Heinz,
“What these people will do for food
until the harvest comes in the autumn
of 1920 is for America to say.”

souled, generous America! You are

“Candyland” at State College Totally
Destroyed by Fire.
“Candyland” at State College, own-
ed and conducted by Gregory Bros.
was totally destroyed by fire at an
early hour on Sunday morning, but so
far as can be ascertained the origin
of the fire is unknown. Some time ago
the proprietors purchased the old
John F. Gray residence on Allen street
which was thoroughly remodeled and
done over into a very complete estab-
lishment for candy, soft drinks, etc.
Only recently a cafeteria, with all
modern conveniences for serving
quick lunches, hot or cold, had been
added and both the store and eating
apartment were well stocked.
According to reports it was in the
neighborhood of four o’clock on Sun-
day morning when the proprietors
got through with their work after the
Saturday night rush, locked up and
left the store. The fire broke out at
or near 5:20 o’clock in the kitchen of
the cafeteria. The flames made rap-
id headway and had literally spread
throughout the building by the time
the fire fighting apparatus could be
brought into play. The result was
that the building, with all its contents,
was totally destroyed. Reports from
the College state that the Gregory
Bros. place their loss at $24,000, on
which they had $13,000 insurance.
Just what their intentions are in re-
gard to rebuilding have not yet been
With a big silk mill and a big
milk condensary in very good pros-
pect for Bellefonte the next question
confronting the town will be houses
to accommodate people who will nat-
urally be brought here by the new in-
dustries. While this is not the most
opportune time for building opera-
tions, owing to the high price of
everything in the line of materials,
yet the fact must be considered that
if the business interests of the town
wish to encourage an influx of popu-
lation, and that is the one thing de-
sired, some attention should be given
towards providing some place for the
people to live. The subject is one
that should be considered seriously
and at once.

Sugar Not Tied Up, Dealers Say.
Philadelphia wholesale grocers and
experts on the sugar question say
there has been no secret or ulterior
disposition made of the more than 11,-
000,000,000 pounds of sugar that were
delivered in the United States during
1919. That many pounds, they say,
were consumed in various shapes and
forms by a population of approxi-
mately 110,000,000 people. That
would make the annual per capita su-
gar consumption in the United States
100 pounds.
Manufacturers of candy and soft
drinks are said to have received the
greater bulk of the sugar for the
manufacture of such delectables as
are supposed to take the place of al-
coholic stimulants.
“In a conference with two big candy
men in New York the other day,” said
a representative of the John Price &
Son, wholesale grocers, 3432 Market
street, Philadelphia, “I learned that
the manufacture of candy has almost
doubled in less than a year. I know
that nearly every wholesale dealer in
this city is of the opinion that the
the sugar shortage was caused by in-
creased demand for candy and soft
drinks. Statements to the effect that
jobbers have bought up a large quan-
tity of this sugar and are hoarding it
are groundless.”
“Increased consumption of sugar,”
said an official of the Franklin Sugar
Refining company, “is the one and
only reason for the fact that a sugar
shortage has existed.”
Several sugar dealers are of the
opinion that there soon will be a can-
dy store and soft drink establishment
for every saloon that has gone out of
existence. In support of that theory
they pointed to the fact that within
the last few months more than a half
dozen candy stores have opened with-
in a radius of three squares of Broad
and Chestnut streets.
James B. Duke and George J. Whe-
len, of the United Cigar Stores, are
planning to open forty more candy
stores in New York city between the
Pennsylvania and Grand Central Sta-
tion. In all probability that chain
will be extended to other cities.
The quotation of more than 11,000,-
000,000 pounds of sugar as the 1919
consumption in the United States
comes from the federal sugar equali-
zation board. The official estimate of
the annual per capita sugar consump-
tion is more than ninety pounds.
“During 1919,” said Earl D. Babst,
president of the American Sugar Re-
fining company, “we have delivered
more sugar to the domestic trade than
in several years. Since the start of
the present sugar shortage last Sep-
tember we have delivered more than
500,000,000 pounds, limiting delivery
since October 15 to the territory east
of the Buffalo and Pittsburgh lines.”

pounds of sugar, docked at Philadel-
phia. The cargo will be sent to local
