——The attention of the Carnegie
Hero Fund Commission has been call-
ed to the heroic action of Boyd Samp-
sell in saving the life of aviator J. T.
Murphy 4 few weeks ago at the risk
of his own life, and efforts are being '
made on the part of certain business
men and others of Bellefonte to see
that he gets due recognition. Accord-
ing to past decisions of the Comunis-
sion Mr. Sampsell should be entitled
to a medal and a grant of $2,000.
Here's hoping he gets it.
-The Pennsylvania Department
of Forestry has awarded the first con-
tract for the cutting and removal of
chestnut timber from state lands to a
Bellefonte man, Harry Mauck, who
will cut the chestnut on a tract of
twenty-five acres in Furnace Hollow, .
Franklin county. The timber will be !
manufactured into telephone and tele- |
graph poles, mine props, etc. Other’
contracts will be awarded in the near |
future and as it looks now there will
be no use going chestnutting on state
lands next fall.
Times used to be that when the.
circus posters were put up the small
boy got busy running errands aad do-
ing odd jobs for pennies and nickels,
hoarding the same against the day the ,
elephant came to town and the big |
tent was a greater attraction than a
dozen Sunday school picnics. But not
so, nowadays. The boy not only de-
mands his entrance money, but money
for pink lemonade and peanuts, and a
great many of them want to be haul-
ed to the show grounds in automo- |
biles; and they get it, too, and then
we all wonder why the expensive
tastes as they grow to manhood. |
In renewing his subseription to
the “Watchman” for the ensuing year
postmaster D. M. Kerlin, of Rudd,
Iowa, says: “I am sixty-eight years
old and have read the “Watchman”
ever since I could read anything, and
I enjoy the news in it from the first to
the last page. I like your stand on
the issues of the day and am satis-
fied there are going to be some hot
times in the presidential campaign. 1
don’t believe the man has yet been
mentioned in either party who will be
the nominee for President. I notice
in the “Watchman” many changes in
the old town of my youth—the old are |
passing away and making way for the
younger generation.”
——Two Republicans in Walker
township voted the Democratic ticket
on Tuesday, but they didn’t do it of
their own volition. They were given
the tickets in mistake by a member
of the election board who did not dis-
cover the error until the men had de-
posited their ballots and gone on their
way. The two men in question may
be good Republicans but they evident-
ly failed to catch the high sign from
headquarters telling them who to
vote for, else they would surely have
discovered the mistake themselves.
But they can console themselves with
the fact that they voted for some
good men, anyway, and the votes had
to. be counted because the board could !
not pick out the identical ballots.

The Air. Mail Service.
{ It was just a year last Saturday
| that government air mail service was
established, though it was some weeks
later before it became stabilized on
the New York to Chicago air mail
route. In the twelve months past pos-
| tal airplanes have transported 538,000
! pounds of mail matter for an aggre-
gate distance of 498,000 miles. The
, Postoffice Department has announced
‘that the mail carried on the New
. York to Washington route has shown
a saving of $42,000 in the year and on
the New York to Chicago route a sav-
ing of $100,000 for the year, and yet
there are people who question the ex-
| pediency of the air mail.

——The household furniture of J.
A. Collins arrived from New York last
| week and was moved out to the old
Furey place, which Mr. Collins recent-
ly leased as a home for himself
and family. Mr. Collins is the repre-
sentative of the Western Maryland
_ dairy and it was mainly through his
, efforts that a site was recently ac-
quired in Bellefonte for a milk station
and as soon as he and his family ar-
‘rive in Bellefonte, which they are ex-
pected to do this week, work will be
begun on the erection of the plant,
| which will be located on the Thomas
rroperty below the Gamble mill.
Now that the primaries are
over a number of people who imagin-
| ed they were born leaders of men will
'be able to give their individual atten-
tion to their own business. They may
-not have the consolation of looking at
| “victory perched upon their banner,”
"but they at least have learned the les-
son that politics is a game that two
‘can play. But it is all over and set-
i tled and we should all be glad for a
little breathing spell before the heat
of the fall campaign.
