W. W. Keller and wife started on

days before going on to Pittsburgh.
We regret to note the illness of our
old friend and neighbor, W. S. Tate,
who is a sufferer with heart trouble
at his home at Bellwood. He would
like to be sent to the Bellefonte hos-
pital for treatment, but his attending
physician deems it inadvisable for him
to undertake the journey in his pres-
ent condition.
Last Thursday proved an ideal day
for the outing held by State College
people on the old academy grounds
here. A big program of sports and
music was arranged for the entertain-
ment of the kiddies as well as older
people, and everybody made a full
day of it, having both dinner and sup-
per on the grounds.
Last Saturday while Mrs. W. H.
Martz was talking to a friend on the
street in front of her home she was
struck by a passing car and knocked
down. She was rendered unconscious
by the fall and sustained numerous
bruises on the head and shoulders,
though fortunately no very serious in-
county led to Pine Hall last Saturday,
the occasion being the union picnic of
the Sunday schools in the tenth dis-
trict. The parade formed at the
churches and led by the Citizens band
marched five hundred or more strong
to the Johnscn grove. Rev. S. C.
Stover led in the devotional services,
which was followed by a period of
music, Mrs. Mary Dreiblebis presid-
ing at the organ. Brief addresses
were then made by Rev. Noll, of
Chambersburg, and Rev. I. E. Fisher,
of Pine Grove Mills. The big dinner
was the next thing on the program
and from general observations we
would infer that it was one of the
most attractive events of the day. In
the afternoon various sporting events
were held and the day proved a most
delightful outing for everybody.

The sudden death of Mrs. Elizabeth
Mingle on Monday morning came as
a great shock to her many friends.
She became quite ill very suddenly
on Saturday forenoon. Her children,
Mrs. Emory Hoy and W. Gross Mingle
both of Philadelphia were summoned,
and reached here on Sunday. Her
funeral on Wednesday morning was
largely attended.
Mrs. James B. Strohm’s house party
consists of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Per-
son and Mr. and Mrs. Ammon Burk-
holder and daughter Margaret, who
drove to Centre Hall last week from
Trenton, N. J.; Rufus Strohm and his
wife, accompanied by a Lutheran
minister from Scranton, arrived at
the Strohm home on Saturday. They
will remain in Centre Hall for a week
or ten days.
Picnics seem to be the order of the
day. Last Friday about 20. young
people took their suppers over to the
stream near Colyer, and enjoyed not
only the novelty of eating out-of-
doors, but also the fun of wading and
bathing. On Monday six auto loads
went to the Woodward Narrows, and
took advantage of one of the 2 stoves
at Voneida Park. A sumptuous sup-
per of ham, eggs, coffee and all the
accompanying dishes was served to 32
people. The participants were from
various points—State College, Milroy,
Centre Hall, Spring Mills, Coburn and

Pierce Lonebarger returned to his
home in Kansas, after spending three
months with his brother on the old
Lonebarger farm on the mountain ad-
jacent to the Gap. Pierce was born
on the old homestead. Forty-two
years ago he left for the west to seek
his fortune. His home now is in Kan-
sas, according to his estimation the
only place on earth. This was .his
first visit to the old home in 42 years.
Our town Sunday schools, the
Methodist and Lutheran, held their
annual Sunday school outing at Hecla
Park last Saturday. The occasion
will long be remembered by the four
hundred participants. It was a unicn
affair, which is quite commendabie.
It goes to show that our church peo-
ple are working in harmony, conse-
quently the young and rising genera-
tion will be mutually benefitted.
While political activities seem to be
at a standstill, there is evidently an
undercurrent at work. Delinquent
tax-payers are coming to the front
and seem eager to exchange some of
their surplus cash for tax receipts.
This is probably accounted for since
there is a rumor current that tax col-
lectors have been requested to furnish
the election boards under their juris-
diction with a list of delinquents. This
would be about equal to a challenge
and would have a tendency t. deprive
all slackers from casting their ballot
for their choice at the coming import-
ant election.
I am glad to note that the congested
farm conditions are greatly improved.
Farm labor is becoming more plenti-
ful. This fact was demonstrated dur-
ing the grain and hay harvesting.
Years ago it required about six weeks
strenuous work to house the crops. To-
day, with the important machinery,
reaper and mower, supplanting the
sickle, scythe and grain cradle, the
work resembles a picnic more than an
old-time harvest of the most vigor-
ous work. It may seem miraculous,
however, its a fact, the Nittany Val-
ley farmers this season cleaned up
their entire crop in one week from
the time of beginning. The fields are
bare and the mows are filled to over-
flowing. The wheat crop was a little
below normal but hay was abundant,
and the indications for a bumper crop
of oats and corn is apparent. Our
farmers have reason to be jubilant,
contented and happy.
