Bellefonte Temperance Union Elects
At a meeting of the Bellefonte
Woman’s Christian Temperance Un-
ion held Friday afternoon, Septem-
ber 10th, the following officers were
elected for the coming year: Presi-
dent, Miss Rebecca Naomi Rhoads;
vice president, Mrs. Alexander Scott;
2nd vice president, Mrs. Ambrose M.
Schmidt; recording secretary, Mrs.
Eben Bower; corresponding secretary,
Mrs. R. S. Brouse; treasurer, Mrs. L.
H. Gettig. The following superintend-
ents were appointed: Evangelistic,
Mrs James Potter; temperance litera-
ture, Miss Lucy Potter; social wel-
fare, Miss Nora Stover; scientific
temperance instruction in the schools,
Mrs. John Porter Lyon; social, Mrs.
R. L. Weston. At this meeting Mrs.
Ambrose Schmidt was appointed a
delegate to the International Congress
against alcoholism, to meet in Wash-
ington, D C., September 21-27th. Gov-
ernor Sproul has appointed Miss
Rhoads a delegate to this Congress.
This meeting is under the official au-
* spices of the United States govern-
ment and is the first to be held in a
country where the traffic in alcoholic
liquors are prohibited by law. Invi-
tations from the Department of State
have been issued to every country
with which our country maintains
diplomatic relations. Governors of
States have been requested to appoint
delegates to the Congress.
, At the 14th International Congress
“against alcoholism held in Milan, Ita-
ly, September, 1913, it was decided to
accept the invitation to meet in the
United States, in 1920. The United
States Congress, at its next session,
authorized the official invitations to
the governments of the world and
made provision for holding the Con-
gress in the United States. This con-
vention will give visitors from abroad
their first opportunity to attend a
meeting in a large country where, un-
der the law, the manufacture and sale
of intoxicating liquors is forbidden.
Bellefonte Boy Believed Killed
France Alive and Well.
Joy never kills, is a well-known,
old-time saying, but Mrs. William
Evey, of Valley View, had the shock
of her life on Monday when she re-
ceived a letter from her son, Richard
W. Evey, whom she has mourned as
dead the past two years; but instead
of that he is now living in Jersey
City with his wife and little baby.
Richard left home in 1915 and wan-
dered around the country from one
place to another, finally landing on
the Mexican border where he was
when the United States entered the
war. He promptly enlisted and was
sent to France. His family had one
letter from him after he went to
France early in 1918 and that is the
only word they ever received. After
the armistice was signed and the sol-
dier boys returned home Mr. and Mrs.
Evey attempted to find out about their
son but all efforts proved futile. In
fact they gave him up for dead and
while not forgotten they never ex-
pected to hear anything further in
regard to him.
Under such circumstances it isn’t
difficult to imagine the shock it must
have been to Mrs. Evey to get a letter
from him on Monday. But the shock
was a joyful one, and the only, tinge
of sadness connected therewith is the
fact that Richard does not know of
his father’s death, but expressed the
hope that both his parents were well
and getting along all right. The only
reason he gave for keeping silent so
long is that he had written home re-
peatedly and never got any replies to
his letters, so became discouraged
and quit writing, but the reason he
received no replies was that his let-
ters never reached home.
Get Together Meeting.
The Sunday school board of the
Methodist church will hold a very im-
portant meeting in the Sunday school
room, on Friday evening. Light re-
freshments will be served and the
work of the Sunday school will be dis-
cussed. Every officer, teacher and
substitute teacher is urged to be pres-
| HAUPT.—Lester A. Haupt, better | HARRISON.—J. Thos. Harrison, of
| known among his many friends as
railroad, passed away at his home in
Tyrone at noon on Monday as the re-
on Monday morning went down stairs
and ate his breakfast as usual. He
was stricken along toward the noon
hour and died at 12:50 o’clock.
Deceased was a son of Samuel and
Eliza Haupt and was born in Irish
valley, Northumberland county, on
September 25th, 1839, hence was al-
most eighty-one years old. His boy-
hood days were spent at Hartleton,
Millheim and Bellefonte. During his
life here he worked as a tinner until
the outbreak of the Civil war when he
enlisted for: service in Company H,
2nd Pennsylvania infantry. Such was
his patriotism that he enlisted the day
after President Lincoln issued his call
for volunteers. When his first enlist-
ment expired he returned home and
organized a company which he took to
the front, so that his war record was
an enviable one throughout.
Returning from the war he entered
the service of the Pennsylvania rail-
road company on September 15th,
1863, as a freight brakeman. Three
months later he was promoted to pas-
senger brakeman and on April 1st,
1864, was made a passenger conduc-
tor, being the second appointment to
this position on the Tyrone division,
David D. Caldwell, of Tyrone, being
the first. Mr. Haupt served as con-
ductor until his retirement in 1909,
covering a period of forty-five years.
In all that period of service he was so
careful and conscientious in the dis-
charge of his duties that he never re-
ceived a mark of discipline. His death
removes all the old and well known
railroad men of former days with the
single exception of “Jimmie” Waddle,
who still lives in Lock Haven and en-
joys good health.
On September 8th, 1868, Mr. Haupt
married Miss Catharine Strickler, of
Huntingdon, who survives with two
sons, Thomas S. and Lester Allison
Haupt Jr., both of Tyrone. He also
leaves two brothers and three sisters,
namely: Henry Haupt and Mrs. Hen-
ry Baird, of Milesburg; Herman
Haupt, of Philadelphia; Mrs. W. F.
Taylor and Miss Ada Haupt, of Ty-
rone. Notwithstanding his arduous
duties while engaged in railroad work
he always found time to devote to his
church, being an active member of
the Methodist chyrch of Tyrone, hold-
ing a place on the official board for
many years. He was a member of
Col. D. M. Jones Post G. A R., Royal
Arcanum and Order of Railway Con-
Funeral services were held at his
i late home at 2:30 o’clock yesterday
afternoon by Rev. A. S. Fasick after
which burial was made in the Grand-
view cemetery, Tyrone.

BARTLEY.—Mrs. Magdalena Bart-
ley, widow of the late Henry F. Bart-
ley, went into that sleep that knows
no awakening in this world, about
three o’clock on Sunday afternoon at
the home of her daughter, Mrs.
Charles M. Heisler, on north Spring
street. She was taken ill on Tuesday
of last week but her condition did not
seem at all serious until Saturday
night when she, herself, declared that
the end was near but asked those
about her bedside to pray that she
would live to see and say good-bye: to
her four children. Telephone mes-
sages were promptly sent to all her
children notifying them of their
mother’s condition and they all re-
sponded promptly, the last one arriv-
ing an hour and a half before she
passed away, so that her last wish
Deceased was a daughter of Henry
and Katherine Smith and was born at
Millheim on February 4th, 1831, hence
was in her ninetieth year. On March
30th, 1854, she was united in marriage
to Henry F. Bartley, a carpenter, of
Union county. The early years of
their married life were spent within
sight of the place of Mrs. Bartley’s
birth, but in 1868 they moved to
Bellefonte and for fifty-two years she
had been a resident of this town. The
Bartley home for many years was in
Bush’s Addition and there she lived to
rear her family to manhood and womn:-
anhood and see them all go out in life
respected and admired by all who
As a young girl Mrs Bartley united
with the Methodist church and she
made her religion as necessary a part
of her life as the care and comfort of
her family. Her attendance at church
services was remarkable for its regu-
larity. Rain or shine she was always
to be found in her accustomed pew,
even up to the Sunday before her
death. And though she had almost
reached the age of four score years
and ten she was possessed of remark-
able vitality up until her last illness.
Her husband passed away on Au-
gust 25th, 1905, but surviving her are
four children, namely: Clara, mar-
ried to Charles M. Heisler, of Belle-
fonte; Alvin W. Bartley, of Lock Ha-
ven; Ellen, married to Robert Gentzel,
of Beaver Falls, and Austin, of Al-

ing by Revs. Alexander Scott and C.
C. Shuey, after which burial was
made in the Union cemetery.

Centre County Leads in Thrift Stamps
According to the announcement of
W. Harrison Walker, assistant to the
i director in charge of county activities
in the campaign for the sale of sav-
ings stamps and certificates Centre
county, up to the last report on Au-
gust first, stands first in. the forty-
eight counties in the eastern district
with a per capita of $1.60. It might
also be of interest to state that during
the school year 1919-'20 114 schools in
the county were enrolled in the sav-
ings society section in this district,
and that $9,472.80 were actually saved
by the school children of Centre coun-
ty and invested in savings stamps and
In this connection, it might be said,
that there never will be a more au-
spicious time for organizing a con-
certed movement for the purchase of
savings stamps and certificates than
the present—coincident with the open-
ing of the public schools. Dr. Thom-
as E. Finegan, State superintendent
of public schools, says:
“The government savings and thrift
idea and plans are good and sound. I
strongly and heartily endorse the
‘movement and hope it will receive the
full co-operation of all concerned in
the welfare of economy and good cit-
izenship. I am completing the re-
vision of a school syllabus into which
the teaching of cardinal principles of
thrift and economy will be incorporat-
As revised by the savings division
the plan consists of savings societies
formed in every school for the pur-
pose of saving regularly a definite
amount of money as a result of teach-
ing the simple principles of banking.
The teachers are being asked to en-
courage their pupils to save money
so as to be’able to invest in at least two
five dollar government savings stamps
per pupil. One of these stamps may
be purchased before Christmas and
the other during the remainder of the
To assist the teachers special les-
sons in thrift and economy have been
prepared and approved by the educa-
tors of the district. They are related
to such subjects as history, English,
geography, civics and mathematics.
They also include practical illustra-
tions, problems and examples, show-
ing the objective advantages of sys-
tematic savings and secure invest-
‘ment. Numerous requests are com-
ing in daily for the material and plan
from the heads of public, parochial
and private schools, and from col-
leges, all of which are speedily adopt-
ing the government savings plan.
For six months in Armenia the
people shiver. In reply to a question
regarding the climate in that country,
Miss Wallace, a Near East relief
“I wore my heavy dress over my
wool underwear, with a sweater over
the dress. When I left my room,
which was heated by a coal oil stove,
I put on my heavy coat and went
shivering into the orphanage, where
the children spent most of the day in
bed to keeo warm.”
“Were they warm enough?” I
“They were warmer than they had
been for three years, but they suffer-
ed horribly from chilblains; so much
so that the skin of their little hands
and legs burst from the swelling,”
she replied with that tragic look that
haunts the eyes of the workers back
from the Near East.
Many of us have garments that are
not in use. We hoard them for senti-
ment, we keep them to make over,
those out of style, spotted, or too torn
to be “respectable.”
People in Armenia will need those
clothes this winter. Last year the
clothes that were sent were eagerly
sought by people of education and of
one-time wealth, as well as by wid-
ows and children, for all alike had
nothing else to replace the tattered,
patched remnants of garments that
they wore when driven into the desert
four years before.
There were not enough to go around
and thousands froze to death, or died
of disease brought on by exposure to
the severe cold of the mountain cli-
mate of Armenia.
Conditions this year will be as bad
or worse than last year.

spare; the warm substantial ones.
