    Bellefonte, Pa., July 16, 1920.
— Next week the Chautauqua.
The farmers are now in the
midst of the harvest season.
Cherries have been so plentiful
this year and the help to pick them
so limited that bushels and bushels
of them have gone to waste.
The many friends of G. Fred
Musser will be glad to know that he
is slowly improving from quite a seri-
ous attack of pleuro pneumonia.
— The Henrietta K. Allison prop-
erty, at State College, was recently
sold through The McVey company to
William H. Strohecker, the considera-
tion being $6,500.
— Just 1325 teachers are enrolled
at the summer school for teachers at
State College, the largest number
that has ever attended a summer ses-
sion at that institution.
The Ladies Aid Society of the
Methodist church at Pleasant Gap
will hold an ice cream festival at the
Gap on Saturday evening, July 24tl,
to which the public is cordially in-
—--Second class townships in Centre
county have been apportioned $8,-
693.16 for construction and improve-
ments of roads and bridges, with an
unexpended balance of $4,315.18
awaiting additional applications.
A good part of the steel frame
work for the new silk mill is now on
the ground and being assembled for
the roof and north side of the build-
ing. As soon as it is in shape the
big structure will be completed as
quickly as possible.
Don’t forget that the Flying
Parson will be one of the lecturers at
the Bellefonte Chautauqua this year.
Another big attraction will be the
Belgian Veterans’ band. In fact the
entire program is one that should
appeal to all lovers of good entertain-
Now that the Fourth of July
is a thing of the past the Scenic
makes a bid for your patronage. Al-
ways an interesting place to spend an
evening, you will find it even more so
as the evenings grow longer and you
are anxious for some place to pass
the time.
Warren Wood, one of the
guards at the western penitentiary at
Rockview, this week moved his fam-
ily from the Schad house on Rey-
nolds avenue to one of the peniten-
tiary houses adjacent to the old bun-
galow on the western boundary of the
penitentiary lands.
——D. I. Willard closed the deal
this week for the purchase of the
double brick house of Dr. Edith Schad,
on North Thomas street. The house
is now occupied by the Willard and R.
B. Taylor families, so that the change
in ownership will not mean a change
in tenants. The price paid was $4,100.
Dr. and Mrs. R. L. Capers and
Mr. and Mrs. James Craig have taken
the Schad house on east Linn street
recently vacated by the McCurdys.
Mrs. Frank Warfield expects to give
up her lease on the Harris house in
the fall and will move in with her
son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs.
——On Monday afternoon pilot
Hopson was in the act of taking up
a DeHaviland plane for testing out
but he had hardly left the ground
when his motor stopped dead and the
result was he took a tumble in a
wheat field on the Valentine farm.
The plane was pretty badly wrecked
but fortunately the pilot escaped with-
out a scratch.
— The annual Sunday school pic-
nic of St. John’s Episcopal church
will be held Thursday, July 29th, at
Hecla park. It is planned to make
this a parish picnic with all members
and friends of the parish, children and
grown-ups, urged to be present. St.
Paul’s parish, of Lock Haven, and St.
Andrew’s mission, of State College,
will picnic at the same time at Hecla.
—Thomas G. Norris, of Philipsburg,
was one of the ten successful candi-
dates for admission to the State For-
est Academy at Mont Alto, he having
successfully passed the examination
held on June 17th and 18th. Eigh-
teen candidates were examined but on-
ly ten were able to pass. The men will
be given six weeks practical work in
state forests before being admitted
to the Academy in the fall.
—D. Paul Fortney resigned his
position as special delivery man and
substitute parcel post carrier in the
Bellefonte post office last week to ac-
cept a more lucrative position in the
wholesale department of the Potter-
Hoy Hardware company. His resig-
nation left a vacancy in the postoffice
force which has been filled by Roy
Coldren being put on the outside work
and Miss Rebecca Cruse put on as
stamp clerk.
—The many Centre county friends
of Mr. J. Will Conley will regret to
learn that he is considered a very
sick man by the staff of physicians
at the University hospital, Philadel-
phia, where he went last week for
treatment. Shortly after reaching the
hospital a minor operation was per-
formed in the hope of giving him
temporary relief and permit of his
zaining sufficient strength to underge
a major operation, but a letter re-
ceived in Bellefonte on Wednesday
from Mrs. Conley did not contain very
encouraging news. Mr. Conley has
not responded as satisfactorily as it
was hoped he would, and until he
does so it will be hazardous to at-
tempt a second operation.
Soldiers’ Monument Dedicated at Mill-
The people of Millheim, Brush and
Pennsvalleys did themselves great
honor July 5th, when they dedicated a
monument to the soldiers from that
portion of the county who served in
the war of the rebellion and in the
late world’s war. The movement for
the erection of a suitable monument
was started over a year ago, and the
money to pay for the same and de-
fray all expenses incident thereto was
contributed principally by residents
of that end of the county.
The very favorable weather on the
fifth of July drew a big crowd to Mill-
heim and the committee in charge of
the unveiling and dedicatory ceremon-
ies, composed of Messrs. John R. Mil-
ler, Philip Musser, A. E. Bartges and
N. S Swabb, had perfected such a
good schedule that there wasn’t a
hitch in the proceedings. The Beaver-
town band had been secured for the
day and led the parade which was
marshalled promptly at two o’clock by
Charles Stover and aids. In addition
to the band the parade included sol-
diers of the Civil War, veterans of
the world war in their natty khaki
uniforms, Red Cross, numerous floats
and various civic organizations. Af-
ter parading through the principal
streets of the town the crowd halted
in front of the monument in the old
town hall square.
S. Ward Gramley was master of
ceremonies and after a brief explana-
tory talk called upon Rev. Miller who
offered a prayer. The chairman then
introduced Rev. Ralph Illingworth as
the principal speaker and he was fol-
lowed by W. Harrison Walker, Esq.,
Colonel Theodore Davis Boal and Capt.
Pierre Boal.
The monument is of cut stone 6x6
feet square and 9 feet in height. It
contains four bronze panels on which
are the names of the soldiers honored
by the people of that part of the
county. Close to the monument stands
a sixty foot steel flagstaff from which
floats a 6x10 foot flag. The names
of Civil war veterans inscribed on
the panels are as follows:

Back from Sunny Italy.
Nicola Lalli, the enterprising shoe-
maker, who went to Italy upwards of
a year ago to bring to this country
his wife and little daughter, arrived
in Bellefonte on Sunday with his little
family and he literally oozed happi-
ness from every pore over the fact
that he was again back under the
Stars and Stripes safe and sound.
When Mr. Lalli left Bellefonte he
fully expected to be back within a few
months and he sold his shoe repair
shop in the room next to the Gazette
office to Charles Nelo, with the under-
standing that he was to have it back
if he returned within a specified time.
But unfortunately he didn’t get back
for the reason that he couldn’t get
out of Italy. In fact he was held up
three months under pain of arrest if
he attempted to leave the country, but
he finally got matters straightened
out to the satisfaction of the Italian
authorities and was permitted to
sail. But he arrived here too late to
exercise his option on the repurchase
of his shoe repair shop and now he
will have to look for another location.
But is he down spirited and gloomy
over that fact? He is not. He nat-
urally is looking for a location in
Bellefonte but if he can’t find one he
will locate “maybe in Milesburg, may-
be Howard, and maybe some other
near town” until he can get a loca-
tion here, then back to Bellefonte
he’ll come.
Fines Imposed on Milkmen.
Yesterday’s Altoona Times-Tribune
contained the following item:
Myrven H. Neaffer, local agent for
the state bureau of foods, returned to
Altoona last night from Bellefonte,
where he collected six fines for adul-
teration of milk and cream. The hear-
ings were conducted on Monday night
in the office of Justice of the Peace
Kline Woodring.
In several of the cases prosecutions
had been brought after investigations
which disclosed the fact that cream
was being sold which was below the
standard of butter fat required by the
state regulations. In others resort had
been had to the “town pump” to as-
sist in filling the cans. All of the de-
fendants were farmers and dairymen.
— Only two weeks more of the
and lines will be packed away for
another nine months and it won’t be
long until the enthusiastic sportsman
will be rubbing up his gun in antic-
ipation of the hunting season.
. — Harry Franks and John Kaleck,
the two Wilkes-Barre men captured
on June 29th by the State cops while
transporting three barrels of whiskey
smothered with onions, were taken to
Williamsport on July first where they
were held in one thousand dollars bail
for trial before the United States dis-
trict court. Bond was furnished and
the men returned to Wilkes-Barre.
The whiskey is still in the custody of
postmaster P. H. Gherrity, of Belle-
fonte, while the automobile is also
held in Bellefonte awaiting the dis-
position of the U. S. Court.
—A bountiful apple crop is in pros-
pect in Centre county this year and
many farmers are wondering if the
prohibition law will interfere with the
making of cider, as heretofore. Ac-
cording to reliable information it will
not. Make all the cider you want to
make either for your own use or for
sale as fresh, sweet cider, but do not
allow it to ferment and then sell it
as hard cider. That might be an in-
fraction of the Volstead law as it
now stands on the statute books. But
there is nothing in the law to prevent
the making of cider and boiling apple-
butter as has been the custom for gen-
eration after generation.
——At a meeting of the Union
Cemetery Association last Friday af-
ternoon, Miss Olive Mitchell tempor-
arily resigned as secretary of the
Board, and S. Kline Woodring was
selected to take charge of the work.
Miss Mitchell has been secretary of
the board for sixteen years while for
ten years prior to that she did the
work for the late J. M. Dale Esa.
She was a capable and conscientious
official and carefully looked after the
interests of the association as well
as of lot owners. In the future all
business communications in connec-
tion with the cemetery should be ad-
dressed to S. Kline Woodring.
——The circus which was so widely
advertised by the “Watchman” for
several weeks was held on the High
school grounds last Thursday even-
ing by the Woman’s club and Patrio-
tic League combined and proved a de-
lightful diversion. The big side show
was filled with freaks—not freaks in
reality but so splendidiy made up that
they looked like the real thing, and
it proved a wonderful attraction for
old and young. The Japanese garden
inside the school building did a good
business and two fortune tellers add-
ed to the interest and mysteries of the
Fellows mare " ircus
grounds x d JEP & Bae, n the
erowd with some entertaining music.
All told the snug sum of $160.00 was
realized which will be equally divided
between the Woman’s Club and the
Patriotic League.
— The new nurses home at the
Bellefonte hospital was formally
opened with a house warming last
Friday evening given by the nurses.
About thirty guests were present and
the evening was spent in a social way,
music and cards predominating. Re-
freshments were also served. The
continued growth of the hospital
made it imperative that some perman-
ent place would have to be provided
to accommodate the nurses at the in-
stitution, who now number thirteen.
About a year ago the Hess property,
adjoining the hospital grounds, was
purchased through the cooperation of
the Ladies Auxiliary and it has been
almost completely furnished with fur-
niture donated by friends of the in-
titution. It was opened last Friday
as a permanent home for as many of
the nurses as it will accommodate and
that was the excuse for a house-
warming in the evening. !
In Society.
Mrs. James Seig was hostess at a
card party Saturday night at her home
on east High street, given in compli-
ment to her sister, Mrs. Lieby, of
Newport, Pa., who has been her guest
for a week or more.
Mr. and Mrs. R. W. Funk entertain-
ed at dinner Sunday night, at their
bungalow on Curtin street.
Thirty of Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Mensch’s friends were their guests at
the dinner dance, given at the Country
club Tuesday of last week, in honor
of their house guest, Mrs, George
Klump, and in celebration of their
seventeenth wedding anniversary.
Mrs. Klump was honor guest at the
dinner of fifteen covers, given by Mrs.
C. M. Parrish, at the Country club
Monday evening.
Mrs. Edwin Earl Sparks, state re-
gent of the D. A. R., entertained
at the President’s House at State Col-
lege, Wednesday afternoon, with a tea
given for the members of the D. A.
R. who are at Penn State Summer
Col. and Mrs. W. F. Reynolds will
give a dinner tonight for Col. Theo-
dore Davis Boal, Capt. and Mrs. Pierre
Boal and Mrs. Boal’s mother, the
Countess de Menthan and her daugh-
ter, the party will be entertained dur-
ing the evening at the pictures of the
28th Division. The Countess and her
daughter have been in America for
a month or more, coming over for
the christening of Mr. and Mrs. Boal’s
daughter, which took place in the
private chapel on the Boal estate at
Boalsburg, on Sunday, July 4th. They
expect to sail next week for their
home in France.
During the evening the Odd |
Automobile Accident Results Fatally. |
trout fishing season and then the rods |
William McManus Dunlap, only
child of George R. and Bessie McMan-
us Dunlap, of Ferguson township, was
the unfortunate victim of an auto-
mobile accident which occurred on the
state highway about a mile east of
Pine Grove Mills at 2:40 o’clock last
Saturday afternoon. The boy and
his father had been guests of Mr.
Elmer Long on a little automobile
ride and had just returned home.
They got out of the car in front of
their home and walked around the
back of the car to cross the road to
their house and just as they stepped
from behind the car they were struck
by an automobile carrying the U. S.
mail. The boy was a little in ad-
vance of his father and was struck
on the head and knocked down, Mr.
Dunlap, who had hold of the child’s
hand, being thrown violently down by
the force of the impact.
Both father and son were rushed to
the Bellefonte hospital as quickly as
possible where it was found that the
boy had suffered concussion of the
brain, and was badly injured about
the upper part of the chest and cut
on the head and face. The father
was badly bruised on the legs and
body but had no bones broken. The
boy lingered in a semi-conscious con-
dition until noon on Monday when he
passed away.
A pathetic part of the tragedy is
the fact that the boy’s mother is an
invalid and has been in a private
sanatorium at Wallaceton most of the
summer. Mr. Dunlap taught school
at Wallaceton the past year and at
the close of the school term returned
to Ferguson township with his son
and had been staying at his own home
intending to return to Wallaceton for
the opening of school in September.
The bereaved mother was taken home
on Tuesday and is almost heartbrok-
en over the loss of her only child,
who was an unusually bright boy,
and who was nine years old on the
18th of last December.
The funeral was held at 4:30 o’clock
yesterday afternoon, and was one of
the largest held in Pine Grove Mills in
a long time. The floral offerings were
most profuse, the casket being liter-
ally covered with flowers. The Pres-
byterian Sunday school attended in a
body, the Citizens band turned out
as well as the United Order of Jun-
jor Mechanics. Rev. W. K. Harnish
officiated and was assisted by Rev. Ira
E. Fisher. Burial was made in the
new cemetery at Pine Grove Mills.
Centre Countian Killed on Railroad.
James Newell McCalmont, a native
of College township, was instantly
killed on July 4th, in the Conway
yards of the Pennsylvania railroad.
He was foreman of car inspectors and
while at work about nine o’clock on
the morning of the Fourth accidently
got caught between two cars and
crushed to death.
Deceased was a son of James and
Emily S. McCalmont and was born
in College township about fifty-one
years ago. His boyhood life was spent
on the farm and when he grew to
manhood he engaged in farming for
hiraself. Later he gave up farming
and moving to State College engaged
in the livery business. About four-
teen years ago he disposed of his
business at State College and moved
to Baden, Beaver county, where he
went to work for the Pennsylvania rail
road company. In the fourteen years
he had been in the company’s employ
he had been advanced to foreman of
car inspectors in the Conway yards.
Mr. McCalmont was married to
Miss Dolly Fye, of College township,
who survives with five children, name-
ly: Mrs. Alexander Brown, of Bad-
en; Isabel, Dorothy, Robert and Betty
all at home. He also leaves his aged
mother, who makes her home in Belle-
fonte, as well as the following broth-
ers and sisters: Mrs. John Hartswick,
of Bellefonte; Edward, of Philadel-
phia; Mrs. J. C. Meyer, of Knoxville,
Tenn.; Roy and Dr. William Me-
Calmont, of Philadelphia, and Mrs.
Mary Holmes, of State College.
Funeral services were held at his
late home in Baden at three o’clock on
Tuesday afternoon, July 6th, after
which burial was made in the ceme-
tery at that place.
