Glenn donned his policeman’s uniform
and badge and during the absence of
policeman Robinson he will be one of
the duly constituted officers of the

faithful as a guardian of the law as
he is in anything he undertakes to do,
and that is saying a lot.

——The Wetzler band, -of Miles-}

the Diamond on Wednesday verre]
at least the last one under the ar-
rangement with the business men’s |
association. And the last half holiday
for this summer was observed yester-
day afternoon by the business places |
of Bellefonte; all of which emphasizes |
the fact that the autumn is rapidly |
approaching and those empty coal!
bins loom forth like a dismal night-
The fact that no evening enter-
tainments have been scheduled for
the teachers’ institute next week will
leave the teachers free to
spend the time as they see
fit, and one of the places in
Bellefonte where they will be sure of
a good evening’s entertainment is at
the Scenic. This well known motion
picture house has always been popular
among the teachers and this year they
will be able to attend it and see the
big programs from beginning to end.

to Boalsburg and return.

be 35 cents up. Don’t miss seeing
“Smiling” Bobby and the galaxy of
stars she has assembled for her 1920
——According to various estimates
in the neighborhodd of five thousand
people attended the business men’s
picnic at Hecla Park last Thursday.
While the bulk of the crowd went
from Bellefonte and vicinity there was
a large attendance from Lock Haven
and all intervening towns. The base-
ball game in the afternoon between
Bellefonte and Lock Haven was the
big attraction, Bellefonte winning by
the score of 6 to 1. Wetzler’s big
band, of Milesburg, was in attendance
and gave several concerts throughout
the day. Various other sports were
held and these, with the dancing in
the pavilion, kept the large crowd
pretty well occupied all the time. Ev-
eryboedy went to the park in motor
busses and automobiles and so far as
the writer could learn there was not
an accident during the entire day.
A YE EE RES a
ee lineata] Flyers Held Up in
Just four weeks ago the Watchman
told of the start of two Larsen all-
metal monoplanes on a transcontinen-
tal flight to the Pacific coast and back
the two planes having sailed over
Bellefonte at a height of eight thous-
and feet on July 29th. One of the
planes evidently dropped out by the
wayside, but the other made the round
trip, reaching DuBois last Thursday.
Weather conditions were so bad at
that time that the party, which in-
cluded J. M. Larsen, the builder of
the plane; E. E. Alynn, president of
the Aluminum Casting company, of
Cleveland, Ohio, and Eddie Ricken-
backer, the All-American ace, decid-
ed that it would be a little too hazard-
ous to venture across the Allegheny
mountains in such weather,. so left
their ship at DuBois in charge of Pi-
lot DeCosta and the mechanician and
came by train to Bellefonte.
Of course they expected to get out
of here on Friday but the weather
continued bad and they didn’t get
away. Saturday they telephoned their
pilot to come over without fail and he
did, but he also went over without
stopping and flew into New York
alone, leaving the distinguished party
marooned in Bellefonte. Slim Lewis,
who was in Bellefonte recovering
from a recent illness, was induced to
go to New York on the 8.10 train
Saturday evening and fly the plane
back to Bellefonte on Sunday and Mr.
Larsen offered Frederick and Philip
Reynolds the opportunity of going to
New York with him and making the
flight back in the plane and both ac-
They left New York at 10:20 Sun-
day morning and netwithstanding the
fact that they encountered consider-
able fog and many low cloud banks
they made the trip in three hours and
twenty minutes, landing safely on the
Bellefonte aviation field at 1.40 p. m.
Both Frederick and Philip Reynolds
declared they enjoyed the flight and
that flying was fine. It goes with-
out saying that both Col. and Mrs. W.
Fred Reynolds, as well as a large
crowd of people were on the field to
see the ship come in and Mr. Larsen
very generously told everybody to
iook it over as much as they cared to,
and scores of people climbed into the
comfortable cabin and out again just
for the pleasure of being in the swim.
Workmen on the field went over the
ship to see that everything was all
right, filled it with gas and oil and at
2:20 o’clock the party started on
the return trip to New York.
During their stay in Belle-
fonte Messrs. Larsen, Alynn and Rick-
| enbacker were entertained at the Nit-
i tany Country club and dined if not
citizens * of the
and all were emphatic in their
“wined” by various
time of it,
i Chiov ations that they had had a very
at the Country club Mr. Rickenbacker
made a clever little speech in which
he recounted some of his experiences
while a combat flier in France and
made very pleasing reference to
Bellefonte’s only aviator in the service
abroad, Elliott Morris. Elliott had
| succeeded in passing all the tests and
was with Mr. Rickenbacker on the
front line squadron for a short ex-
perience in combat flying when the
armistice was signed and his chance
of an actual engagement cut off.
Will the old Gas Plant Start a Gassin’?
Many Bellefnters will naturally be
interested in the announcement that
a well known public utility company
of Bellefonte is at present engaged in
naking a survey of the old gas plant
and also endeavoring to compile a
list of prospective customers, with
a view of resurrecting the plant, and
putting it into commission again. The
closing down of the old steam heating
plant and the gas plant were two
hard blows to the progressiveness of
Bellefonte, and although an effort was
later made to operate the gas plant,
it did not prove a success because of
the lack of patronage; and the main
reason at that time for the lack of
patronage was undoubtedly lack of
confidence in the management.
But if the company that is now con-
sidering the proposition of restoring
the gas plant gets hold of it, it will
mean that it will be run right and
the people of Bellefonte can depend on
an unlimited supply of gas at all
times. While the taking over of the
gas plant will have nothing to do with
the steam plant, at present, at least,
it would not be surprising if eventu-
ally that very desirable public utility
might be rejuvenated and put into
Miss Mollie Snyder Recovers Bag and
The “Watchman” last week told the
story of how Miss M. H. Snyder, of
Bellefonte, had lost a black bag con-
taining $21,000 in bonds and jewelry,
while on a motor trip from Milford,
Del, to Baltimore, Md., on Sunday,
August 15th. She has now recovered
her bag with the contents intact. It
appears that the bag was found by a
man named Charles Conner, of Mag-
nolia, Del., and seeing a notice of the
loss in the papers he immediately
wrote a letter to Miss Snyder, send-
ing it to Bellefonte. The letter was
forwarded to her in Baltimore and as
soon as she received it she made
haste to go to Magnolia where she
had no trouble in recovering the bag
from Mr. Conner, after describing it
in detail. It is a foregone conclusion
that Miss Snyder was overjoyed to
recover her wealth, as is no doubt
comprised the savings of the years
she has been in the millinery busi-
ness in Bellefonte.
“the TORT Or the aver Sey
of Labor and Industry, through its
bureau of rehabilitation, has offered
free service to four persons in Centre
county who have been permanently
disabled through industrial accidents.
Just what the above announcement
means can be judged from the fact
that one young machinist in the State,
who lost a hand in an accident, is
taking a course in mechanical engi-
neering at the expense of the bureau.
A laborer who earned four dollars a
day, lost an arm in a cement factory.
The bureau found employment for
him in a plant operating a glass blow-
ing machine, where he is now earn-
ing $33 to $40 a week, having a bet-
ter income with one arm than he had
A Aa LL A
Last Saturday was a bad day
for picnics of any kind, not so much
because of any rain that day, but ow-
ing to the fact that the hard rains
of previous days had rendered the us-
ual run of picnic grounds extremely
wet and disagreeable; and inasmuch
as the above conditions prevailed in
the John Q. Miles grove at Martha
the usually big Williams family re-
union was very much curtailed.
When the weather Saturday morning
looked so ominous the committee in
charge of the reunion notified Mr.
Wetzler, of Milesburg, not to take his
band up and the speaking program
was also annulled. Very few people
put in an appearance on the grounds
in the morning but the nice weather
of the afternoon brought out quite a
large number of people, and as there
was no set program everybody spent
the time in a social way and watching
the ball game between the brick yard
and outlaw teams of Port Matilda,
the latter winning by the score of 3
From the big hole now in evi-
dence in front of the Brockeroff prop-
erty on Spring street there is a pos-
sibility that at some time or other
the bottom may drop out of the street
at that place. Almost two months
ago the borough had a deep ditch dug
on the cast side of Spring street from
Bishop street down to in front of
Schofield’s store for the purpose of
putting down new sewer pipe, then
ran out of pipe. A week or more ago
it was noticed that the water in the
ditch from the constant hard rains
was disappearing into a small hole in
the bottom of the ditch opposite the
house occupied by J. C. Young and
family. As time worn on the hole
grew bigger and last week’s heavy
rains washed it out as big as a bar-
rel. It runs down some ten or twelve
feet into a cave-like opening that from
all appearances crosses the street to
the Bush property. So far, however,
nobody has had the courage to go
down and investigate the hole, but jit:
of it coming out whore, As the
cave is not over ten feet underground
a very heavy vehicle traversing
Spring street is liable to break
through the crust and sink out of
Mule Drowned, Cow Disappears.
Of course everybody knows that
we have had an abundance of rain
the past few weeks, but few people
outside of Curtin’s gap will credit the
story that on Tuesday night of last
week such torrents of rain fell in that
part of the county that the little
stream through the gap was raised
high enough to float a mule, and yet it
is a fact. Persons living in that Tocal-
ity were suprised on Wednesday morn-
ing to see a dead mule floating down
the stream. It was one of the Cur-
tin furnace mules that had been pas-
turing in the gap, but just how it
met its death is not known. It may
have been drowned in the flood, or
struck by lightning and fell into the
stream. At any rate the carcass float-
ed down into the old canal where it
was pulled out and consigned to the
On Thursday evening Mrs Harry
Curtin appraised her fine herd of
cattle in the barnyard at her home
at Curtin and in the herd was a full
blooded Holstein cow that was the es-
pecial pride of the owners herd. Friday
morning the cow was gone, and
though every effort has been made to
find out what became of her it has
proved unavailing and she could not
have disappeared more completely had
the earth opened up and swallowed
The Hat Shop to Sacrifice Summer
Miss Cooney, of The Hat Shop, will

chase against their next summer’s
