—Ex-County Commissioner Harry
E. Zimmerman, who spent several
weeks in the Bellefonte hospital un-
dergoing treatment, was able to be
taken to his home at Pleasant Gap
last week, having practically recover-
ed with the exception of a little rheu-
matic trouble in one of his legs.
Mrs. Rachel Miller, of Pleasant
Gap, who was quite seriously injured
almost a month ago when a heavy
barn door fell on her, is improving
very nicely under the treatment she
is receiving at the Bellefonte hospital
and her condition now is such as to
justify the belief in her permanent
——The executive committee of the
Williams family reunion association
met on Tuesday evening and decided
to hold their annual reunion this year
in the John Q. Miles grove at Martha

The Shetland pony and cart
owned for some years by Miss Oleta
Hollobaugh, has been sold to a gentle-
man at Williamsport and was shipped
to him yesterday by express. Miss
Hollobaugh won the pony and cart in
a subscription campaign conducted by
the Farm and Fireside a few years
ago, and now has sold both For two
hundred dollars.
A freight wreck between Un-
ionville and Julian last Friday even-
ing blocked the track five hours or
longer so that it was after one o’clock
Saturday morning when the Friday
evening 8:10 train reached Bellefonte.
The accident was caused by a broken
truck on a freight car which tore up
the track several hundred feet. None
of the freight crew were injured.
Gregg Curtin left Bellefonte
Wednesday night for Philadelphia and
it will probably be a surprise to his
many friends to learn that when he
returns early next week he will bring
back with him Mrs. Curtin, as he will
be married at Lansdowne tomorrow to
Mrs. Helen Chipley. The wedding
will be the culmination of a friend-
ship that has endured for fifteen years
or longer.
Naturally everybody in Centre
county is anxious to know the condi-
tion of J. Will Conley, of Bellefonte,
who is ill in the University hospital,
Philadelphia. An operation for his re-
lief was performed on Wednesday and
while the fact must be admitted that
his condition is considered unusually
grave he not only survived the opera-
tion but word from Philadelphia yes-
terday was that he was a little bright-
er in the morning.
Bellefonte is to have an Italian
band. The music-loving natives of
sunny Italy now residing in Belle-
fonie and vicinity have alreadv iuken
the preliminary steps for the organi-
zation of the band and have aranged
for the services of one of the best
Italian musicians in the State as di-
rector and teacher. The Watchman
feels quite sure that everybody in
Bellefonte will welcome the advent of
the Italian band.
— The opera house was crowded
last Friday night by an audience
anxious to see the motion pictures of
the Twenty-eighth division in France
as shown and explained by Capt C.
P. Futcher, and the exhibition proved
quite interesting. The only disap-
pointment experienced by the many
ex-soldiers and their friends was the
fact that most of the pictures were
of such long range that it was impos-
sible to recognize individuals or troop
— Announcement has been made
of the fact that Ben F. Curry, of
Pittsburgh, and Miss Abbie M. Cook,
daughter of Mr. Charles F. Cook, of
Bellefonte, will be married tomorrow
at the home of Mr. Curry’s parents at
Slippery Rock, Pa. Miss Cook has
had charge of Mr. Curry’s two little
children since the death of his first
wife, who was her sister, on Febru-
ary 27th, 1919. The wedding tomor-
row will be a quiet affair, only im-
mediate relatives being present.
— St. John’s Episcopal Sunday
school will hold its annual picnic at
Hecla park on Thursday of next week,
July 29th. The trip to and from the
Park will be made by motor, cars leav-
ing the parish house on west Lamb
street at 10 a. m. The Episcopal
churches of Lock Haven and State
College will unite in this picnic and
a great time is promised all who at-
tend. Members and friends of St.

invited to help make the picnic a suc-
cess hy attending it.
‘diately they
Supended Upon Four Law
Sheriff Harry Dukeman lost four of
his prisoners from the county jail on
Monday, but they ail got out through
due process of law. The first man
called before the bar of justice an-
swered to the mame of Jeffries, but
he doesn’t bear any resemblance to
the redoubtable Jim. In fact he has
only one arm, his name is Wilbur and
he was in the clutches of the law on
the charge of stealing an automobile.
Jeffries worked in the Josiah Pritch-
ard garage, at Philipsburg, and
without saying “by your leave” he
took the car of H. Adelman from the
garage and drove it to the outskirts
of Philipsburg where he left it stand
by the roadside at the cemetery then
boarded a train for Tyrone. He was
caught and brought back to the Centre
county jail. In addition to having
only one arm Jeffries has a wife and
baby and their presence in court was
doubtless a good influence for him,
as after hearing his story the court
suspended sentence upon the payment
of the costs and gave him three
months in which to do it, then told
him to go out and hustle for a job
so he can keep his family, pay the
costs within the stipulated time or
he would be bought back and sentenc-
The next man up was Harper Reif-
snyder, who admitted that he was one
of the Reifsnyders of Millheim, but
didn’t have any regular home now.
He was arrested five weeks ago on
complaint of Mr. Baldwin, of Cole-
ville, who charged him with jumping
a $21.00 board bill. In answer to
questions by the court Reifsnyder
stated that early in the summer he
had been working as a carpenter in
Williamsport where he drew down
$8.50 per day, but that he had been
compelled to lay off work two weeks
on account of illness. He then came
to Bellefonte and went to board at
the Baldwins, but he did not work
very steady and finally left owing
them, according to the Baldwins, $21
board, though he claimed that it
should be only $12.50. The court
told Mr. Reifsnyder that he ought to
be ashamed of himself to be able to
earn $8.50 a day and then jump a $21
board bill. He then suspended sen-
tence on condition that he go to work
and pay the bill and costs within two
The third case brought before the
court was that of Clara Coble, of
Oak Hall, who was charged with forg-
ery. The forgery consisted of a
check drawn by the girl in favor of
Sue Watson and signed by Mrs. G. C.
Meyers, which she cashed herself. It
further developed that the girl, who
worked at Candyland, State College,
had first stolen a pocketbook contain-
ing $16.00 from a Mrs. Ishler, then
when confronted with the fact of her
theft had forged the check to get
money to pdy back what she had
stolen. Other facts were brought to
light which were not at all to the
girl’s credit. The court candidly con-
fessed that he was nonplussed to know
what to do, not so much as a punish-
ment of the girl for what she has
done, but for her own good and pro-
tection. Finally he agreed to permit
her to return home for the present on
the payment of costs and restitution
of the amount of the check, but stip-
ulated that the matron of the juven-
ile court would visit the Coble home
in the near future and her report of
conditions there and the girl’s actions
would determine the final disposition
of the case.
The last case called was that of
Harry Burns, of Bellefonte, sentenced
last January to pay a fine of $100,
costs of prosecution and undergo im-
prisonment in the county jail for a
period of one year, after having plead-
ed guilty to adultery. Burns has been
a model prisoner and his attorney
asked that his sentence be reduced. The
court finally announced that he would
remit the fine, grant him a discharge
and give him three months in which
to pay the costs, but cautioned him
what he might expect if he is ever
again brought before him on a simi-
lar charge.
Head Blown Off by Delayed Shot in
Coal Mine.
Mike Krosnovic, a Slavish coal min-
er employed in mine No. 26 of the
Lehigh Valley Coal company, near
Snow Shoe, was instantly killed by a
delayed shot on Monday morning
which literally blew off his head.
Mike and his “buddy” had placed twe
shots and then went out of the mine
and sat down on the railroad track to
await the explosion. Almost imme-
were joined by another
miner who was working in an ad-
joining heading in the same mine, al-
most abutting into the one Krosnov-
ic and his “buddy” were working, and
who, too, had just placed a shot. But
he failed to mention this latter fact to
Mike and his companion, and when
they heard two shots go off they nat-
urally supposed they were their own.
Mike at once started into the mine,
accompanied by the mine superinten-
dent, but a workman called to the lat-
ter and he stopped to see what was
wanted, Mike continuing on his way.
Just as he reached his cutting there
was another terrific explosion and his
head was literally blown from his
body. The two explosions that occur-
red first was one of the two shots
put in by Mike and his companion
and the shot put in by the other miner,
while Mike was killed by the delayed
shot in his own cutting.
He was about fifty-seven years old
and leaves a wife in Snow Shoe and
one brother in Johnstown. He owned
his own home and was a steady, in-
dustrious worker. Burial was made
at Snow Shoe on Wednesday.

—__ Between twenty-five and thirty Golden Wedding Made Occasion of |
ministers from central and northern |
| counties of Pennsylvania are now in|
attendance at the ministers’ confer-
ence being held at State College and
which will continue all of next week.
According to some of the ministers
in attendance the conference is not
only a diversion from the routine life
of a minister but is extremely inter-
esting. The time is not all spent in
the study or discussion of theology
and the bible, but the program in-
cludes various demonstrations at the
College including gardening, horti-
culture, chicken raising and various
other outdoor experiments shown at
the College.
cussed are such as community health |
and morals, the relation of the preach-
er to Sunday schools and public
schools, etc., while the ministers ex-
change notes of conditions in their dif-
ferent parishes on how their work is
progressing. They are also interest-
ing lectures on various topics by able

Plenty of Sugar.
Three carloads of sugar reached
Bellefonte within the last ten days.
One carload, twenty tons, was receiv-
ed by Cohen & Co., who sold it at
$26.50 per hundred pounds, or 27
cents a pound in less than one hun-
dred pound lots,
trouble getting rid of the sugar, as
the retail price in other stores was
30 and 31 cents a pound.
According to all reports there is an
abundance of sugar in the country
now and always has been, and there
was never at any time any legitimate
excuse for a sugar scare or the high
price consumers have been compelled
to pay. The sugar was simply with-
held from the market by unscrupu-
lous dealers for the sole purpose of
running up the price for their own
benefit, and now that the price is
up and the new crop will soon be com-
ing in the holders of the sugar are un-
loading; and the result is that an ample
quantity of sugar can be secured by
anybody who has the money to pay
the price.
She Knew it Wasn't “The
On Saturday about one hundred and
fifty school teachers who are taking
the summer course at State College
made an excursion in automobiles and
motor busses to the Burnside farm on
the top of Muncy mountain and, of
course, Mr. William Burnside did the
elegant by acting as host and guide
to the various points of vantage on
the mountain top. Of course, among
the places of interest he piloted them
to was the House of Lords, from
where they had a magnificent view of
Buffalo Run valley. To put the teach-
ers right in recalling their visit in
the future Mr. Burnside called atten-
tion to the fact that the comfortable
cabin was not the “Lord’s House” but
the “House of Lords,” when very
promptly a demure and petite teach-
er who had made a tour of inspection
for herself replied: “It’s quite appar-
ent that it isn’t the Lord’s House;
I’ve been inside.”
But they didn’t allow a little thing
like that to mar the pleasure of their
trip as every one of them marveled
at the magnificent view from the
House of Lords and after they had ex-
patiated at length on the beautiful
scenery they all returned to the Burn-
side farm and ate their lunch on the
little plateau surrounding the cool and
limpid spring almost on the mountain
top. So pleased were the professors
and teachers that they asked permis-
sion to make the pilgrimage an an-
nual affair.
New Court Instituted.
A new court of the national order
of the Daughters of Isabella was in-
stituted in Williamsport last Sunday.
Miss Frances Maher, of Kane, state
grand regent, presided. The beau-
ties of the first degree were illustrat-
ed to members of the new court
by the Renovo team, with grand reg-
ent Miss Hazel McGuire in charge.
Grand Regent Mrs. Odillie Mott with
her sixteen officers of Patrick McArdle
court No. 448, of Bellefonte, exempli-
fied the second degree, Fathers Cos-
tello and Angio assisting.
A class of one hundred candidates
had the duties revealed to them with
one hundred and twenty-five visitors,
Kane, Lock Haven, Renovo and Belle-
fonte being represented, thirty-five of |
the number being Bellefonte ladies.
The new court will be known as
Our Lady of Victory Court, No. 523,
with Mrs. Frank E. Reilley as grand
regent. The’ Williamsport ladies en-
tertained all the visitors at the Park
hotel to a platter dinner while lunch
was served in the Odd Fellows Temple
dining room, the main room being
used for the work and reception. As
the Knights of Columbus of that city
will not get possession of their beauti-
ful sixty thousand dollar home until
September first it was impossible to
use their hall. The Knights were very
gallant in escorting the visiting ladies
to and from the trains and hall,
which was taken as evidence of their
generous spirit.

Another Wedding.
Surrounded by their children and
grandchildren and more than one
| hundred invited guests, Mr. and Mrs.
Henry W. Gingrich celebrated the gol-
| den anniversary of their marriage last
Friday evening at their very com-
fortable home on Cedar creek. The
event was scheduled to take place at
program was a most sumptuous din-
ner which was served on the spacious
lawn in front of the house. The table
decorations were white and gold and
the menu of good things to eat con-
sisted of about everything the sea-
| son afforded. :
Following the meal the guests were
treated to a little surprise when Miss
Ellen Hassell, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. P. P. Hassel, of State College,
and a grand daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Gingrich presented herself as the
first bride of the evening and was
united in marriage to Malcolm Smith,
of State College. The bride looked
extremely lovely in a gown of white
silk with a chiffon veil and white
wreath on her head in lieu of a hat.
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
J. W. Long, pastor of the Methodist
church at State College, the ring ser-
vice being used. In commemoration
of their golden wedding Mr. and Mrs.
Gingrich stood up as attendants and
repeated the vows with the young
couple. The bride was given in mar-
riage by her uncle, Jerome Gingrich.
An impromptu serenade was given
Mr. and Mrs. Smith by a band of cal-
lithumpians and later the young
couple left on a brief wedding trip
i prior to locating at Syracuse, N. Y.
It might here be mentioned that both
Mr. Smith and his bride enjoy quite
a reputation as musicians and both
will be missed in the musical circles
at State College.
| The marriage of Miss Hassell and
, Mr. Smith for a part of the evening
at least, overshadowed the principal
event, but for all that the celebration |
in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich’s
golden anniversary was a perfect
success. So perfect in fact that
among the many presents received by
that most estimable couple was a
ipurse of fifty dollars in gold, not
counting the donation of those long
green strips that counts as currency
with your Uncle Samuel.
Mr. Gingrich, by the way, was a
son of Mr. and Mrs. Christian Ging-
rich, pioneer residents of Harris town-
ship, where he first saw the light of
day on January 16th, 1848, so that
he is now in his seventy-third year.
Mrs. Gingrich was a daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Samuel Stover and was born
at Rock Springs, July 12th, 1850, so
| that she is two years her husband’s
junior. On July 16th, 1870, they were
married at Logansville and for many
years have resided in their present
home which has long been noted for
its open-hearted.. hospitality, pretty
girls and good ny i 7 BS i
Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich were the
parents of ten children, six of whom
survive, as follows: Mrs. P. P. Hassel,
of State College; Earl, Jerome, Arene,
Bertha and Rose at home. They have
one grandson and one granddaughter.
It was a late hour Friday night
when the many guests departed wish-
ing Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich many more
| years of a happy, healthy life.
Carper—Miller.—John E. Carper,
son of Mr. and Mrs. John Carper, of
Linden Hall, and Miss Harriet I. Mil-
ler, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wesley
Miller, of College township, were
united in marriage in the parlors of
the Bush house, Bellefonte, at 10:30
o'clock on Wednesday mniworning, by
{Rev S. C. Stover, pastor of the Re-
formed church at Boalsburg. Mr. and
Mrs. Carper will spend a few days
among friends in Centre county be-
fore going to Cleveland, Ohio, to lo-
cate permanently, wher: Mr. Carper
helds a good position in a big steel
An amusing incident ha pened just
after Rev. Stover pronounced the
words that united the two young peo-
ple in the bonds of matrimony that
is a little too good to leave untold.
It is Rev. Stover’s unfailing custom to
present all couples for whom he offi-
ciates with a certificate and naturally
he did not intend t> moke an excep-
tion in this case, but when he unrolled
the certificate for the purpese of iiiling
in the names, etc., what must have
been his consternation to discover that
in his hurry in leaving home he had
gotten the wrong paper and instead
of a marriage certificate that was dis-
| (loced to view it was a baptism certi-
| feate.
