nia State College, later State Zoolo- |
gist and last year head of the contin-

The public hall at Millheim was
not able to accommedate much over
half the crowd that turned out on
Wednesday evening to hear William
Jennings Bryan lecture. The great
Commoner did not discuss politics but
adhered strictly to the subject of his
lecture, “Where are the Nine?” Of
course his applications were made jn
the interest of true Americanism and
good citizenship, and the lecture
seemed to be appreciated by all who
heard it.
On Saturday afternoon an au-
tomobile collision occurred on High
street, at the intersection -of Water |
street, between the cars of H.W.
Macker and Dr. W. U. Irwin. Mr.
Macker was on his way up High street
from the depot and Dr. Irwin came in
north Water street on his way to the
Bellefonte hospital, the cars coming
together at the intersection of the
streets. The doctor’s car got the!
worst of the bargain, as it had to be
towed to a garage for repairs.
: Borough manager J. D. Seibert
and James I. McClure came within an
ace of meeting in personal combat
last Saturday morning, over the lat-*
ter’s pavement rights along his prop-
erty on Spring and Logan streets.
And the affair progressed to that
stage where Mr. Seibert had Mr. Mc-
Clure arrested for making threats.
But justice of the peace Woodring
could find no evidence of threats hav-
ing been made at a hearing held be-
fore him and Mr. McClure was dis-
Popular motion picture actors
and actresses always draw big crowds.
This was proven on Saturday evening
when a well-known screen favorite
was shown at the Scenic. The crowd
clamoring for admission blocked the
pavement in front of Petrikin hall so
that pedestrians were compelled to go
out in the street to get around it. Of
course manager T. Clayton Brown re-
alizes this fact and that is the main
reason why he is always looking for
the best pictures he can get to give
his patrons.
Many persons, especially far-
mers, should be interested in the sale
of the equipment of the McQuistion
carriage shops in this place on Octo-
ber 2nd. Farmers still have horses
and wagons and the practical passing
of the crossroads blacksmith and
wheel-right shops has forced most of
them to do their own repairing and
shoeing. A fine line of tools for these
purposes is to be sold at the MecQuis-
tion sale and persons having any use
for such articles will have a chance to
buy them cheap.
Jack White, of Huntingdon, Victim of
Bad Wreck Friday Night.
John White, sales agent for the
Vuille agency of the Cadillac automo-
bile, of Huntingdon, was so badly in-
jured in a smash-up down at the Red
Roost last Friday night that he died
at the Bellefonte hospital about eleven
o'clock on Saturday morning without
regaining consciousness, and George
A. Barrett, who was struck by the au-
tomobile, is in the Bellefonte hospital
badly though not fatally injured.
“Jack” White, as he was familiarly
known by his friends, came to Belle-
fonte on Friday, accompanied by E.
A. Rose, of Johnstown, in a rebuilt
Cadillac runabout for which he was
hunting a purchaser. The men had
been out to Snow Shoe for the after-
noon; having left that place after dark
and were on their way to Bellefonte
from Milesburg when the accident
happened, which was about ten
o'clock in the evening. Mr. Bar-
rett .and Mrs. Samuel Gordon,
and the latter's young son, had
walked down the state road from
Bellefonte and were just oppo-
site the school house at Red Roost
when they saw the car coming. Mrs.
Gordon states that they had stepped
to the side of the road purposely to
get out of the way of the car which
was being driven at a very high speed,
but as it neared them it suddenly
veered to the left and before -they
could move the car swept past and
Barrett had disappeared from her
cide. Almost in the same breath
there was a terrific crash and car and
occupants lay in a crumpled mass in
the roadway. Mrs. Gordon was so
frightened she stumbled to the school
house and leaned against the building
for support.
Mus. Tressler, who lives next door
to the school house heard the crash
and at once ran out, being the first
person on the scene, but it was only
2 minute or two until quite a crowd
gathered. White was found lying in
the road unconscious but Mr. Rose,
while somewhat dazed, escaped with
only slight injuries. Barrett could
not be found anywhere, and it was not
until an hour later that he was found
unconscious in a gutter alongside the
road seventy feet from where the ac-
cident happened. 5
Owing to the fact that Mr. White,
who drove the car, is dead it is diffi-
cult to tell the exact cause of the ac-
cident. White had always been re-
garded as a safe driver but how he
come to be on the wrong side of the
road, and even to the side of the road
when he struck Mr. Barrett is a ques-
tion that will never be explained. It
is just possible he saw the road up
over the hill and thinking that was the
road he swung to the left to take it.
Then when he struck Mr. Barrett that
gentleman, instead of being knocked
to one side was thrown up on the fen-
der and hood of the machine. The
driver then swung to the right to get
on the state highway but not quick
enough to avoid striking the big tele-
phone pole that stands in the triangle
of the three roads. The car struck
the pole at the front door and the im- !
pact was so terriffic that the side of
the car was crushed in and the ma-
chine badly wrecked. As the car
struck the pole the force of the im-
pact was so great that White was
thrown against the pole, causing a
deep laceration of the scalp, but no
fracture of the bone. This was the
only visible injury but it is likely that
his death was caused by concussion of
‘the brain and shock.
The injured man was hurried to the
Bellefonte hospital where everything
possible was done for him but he
never regained consciousness.
At the time of the accident search
was made for Mr. Barrett but he
could not be found and some inclined
to the belief that he had not been hurt
but had gone back to his work as fire-
man at the pike kilns of the American
Lime & Stone company. It was fully
an hour later when Mrs. Tressler and
a Miss McMullen walked up to the
wreck and heard some person moan-
ing. They were very much frightened
and promptly ran to the nearest
houses and summoned help. A search
then revealed Mr. Barrett lying in a
deep ditch to the left of the road. He
had evidently been carried on the
front of the car about a hundred feet
until the auto struck the telephone
pole, then hurled a distance of seven-
ty feet to where he was found in the
ditch. And strange as it may seem
not a bone in his body was broken
though he was cut and bruised and is
suffering from shock. He was
brought to the hospital by the Emer-
ick motor bus.
Mr. White, who was thirty-eight
i years old, was married and has two
small children. His wife was brought
to Bellefonte Saturday morning be-
fore he died but he was unconscious so
did not know her. An auto hearse
from Huntingdon came to Bellefonte
Saturday afternoon and took the re-
mains to that place for burial.

ty Commonwealth cases are open on

postponed on account of rain. It has
been decided to hold this picnic on
Thursday, September 30th, at Agar’s
park, near Mill Hall. There will be
livestock exhibits, judging contests,

various other features on the pro-
gram. Everybody is invited to take
their basket and spend the day.
— The congregation of St. Paul’s
A. M. E. church have this week been
celebrating the sixty-second anniver-
sary of ihe establishment of the
church in this place. The services be-
gan last Sunday and will continue
over the coming Sunday, which in re-
ality will be the big day of the cele-
bration. There will be preaching
services both ‘morning and evening
with the young people’s services in
the afternoon. Both dinner and sup-
per will be served at the church an
day of it.
— The attention of farmers and
dairymen in Centre county is hereby
called to the new advertisement of the
Western Maryland Dairy in this issue
of the “Watchman;” and in this con-
nection we might add that the com-
pany’s new milk station in this place
is fast nearing completion. One por-
tion of the plant is up and already
be completed in the next two or three
weeks. . The matter of installing the
machinery will not be a big job, so
| market for milk.
Residents of Bellefonte were
considerably startled about
wondered what it was. Yesterday it
was learned that the responsible par-
ty was J. Mitchell Cunningham. For
some time past he has been courting
a desire to get rid of an old stone sta-
ble on his property and he finally con-
ceived the idea of blowing it down.
The attempt was made on Wednesday
evening and While the explosion made
plenty of noise its demolishing force
was not as great as desired.
The top of the Methodist
church steeple was pulled down a few
minutes after four o’clock on Monday
afternoon and so carefully had con-
tractor Edward Hepburn planned
everything that the twenty-five foot
section fell sidewise into the gutter
and did practically no damage what-
ever. An.interesting incident in con-
nection with the taking down of the
| steeple is that the iron top of it was
put up forty-four years ago by W. T.
| Twitmire and one of the Tates, and on
: Monday Mr. Twitmire helped to pull
Lit down. Now that the top of the
| steeple is down the dismantling of the
| balance of it will be a simple matter.

and American history. This course

| from the management of the well
| known Brockerhoff house next Thurs-
| day is offering all the equipment of the
“big hotel at private sale and what is
unsold will be moved out of the house
‘next Thursday and stored. Up to the
| present time no one has been secured
to take charge of the hotel, and it is
quite possible no special effort in this
direction will be made before next
spring at least. With coal as high as
it is the heating of the hotel during
the winter season means an expense
of twenty dollars a day, or there-
abouts, so that the overhead expense
of keeping it open would be quite
large. Thus it is almost a certainty
that next Friday morning will find the
hotel tightly locked and the date of
its reopening as a public hostlery is
i entirely problematical.
in the history of Bellefonte that one
of its hotels has thus been. closed to
public patronage. :
“Humeoresque” at State College.
In conformity with the progressive
policy of the management of the Pas-
time theatre, State College, they are
to present “Humoresque” Thursday
and Friday of next week. This pro-
duction broke all former records in
New York city in a continuous run of
ten weeks at the Criterion theatre,
and is now doing the same in Phila-
delphia at the Metropolitan opera
house. These theatres showed at ad-
vanced prices but it will be shown at
State College at 30 cents for adults
and children 15 cents and tax. The
photoplay is real life faithfully por-
trayed. It has an immense appeal to
the heart, equalled by few works of
literature and fewer stage produc-
tions. It is a story that cries to hide
its laughter and laughs to hide its
tears. It is the one outstanding pic-
ture of the year, and all who witness
it will agree with this statement.

We are Receiving Many Letters from
Since starting the campaign to
raise enough money on our subscrip-
tion list to pay for a car load of pa-
per we have received many responses.
Not as many, of course, as we would
like to have but yet sufficient to quite
encourage the hope that our readers
will not fail us in this extremity.
While many of those who have re-
sponded have been too busy to do
more than enclose a check or money
order others have found time to write
most encouraging little notes. While
| we have no thought of criticism for
| those who have not had the time to do
| more than answer our appeal in a
| purely business way, for we know that
| other people are just as busy as we
are ourselves, we can’t resist express-
{ing our gratitude for the kindly ex-
pressions of appreciation of our work
that so many of our readers have
sent in.
We are all human, and whether it
i be the real thing or only flattery we
| just can’t help being cheered up a bit
when some one tells us that the
| “Watchman” is really a worth while
newspaper. We know of no work,
' outside of that of a country physician,
: that is more of a grind. When every-
‘thing about us is going awry and lead-
. gray skies are o’erhanging we have to
“try to record the joys of the other fel-
low as happily as possible. Just as
| when the sun is shining gloriously in
[ur office and we would see nothing
i but blue skies everywhere we are
called upon to record the inexpressi-
ble sorrows that are ever coming to
others. These things go on forever
in a newspaper office and worse than
ever ina country office, where it must
all be done by two or three individu-
als. The present edition is not Avy
from the press before thoughts of
next week’s issue begin to haunt us.
It is not a sob chorus that we are
trying to sing because we don’t hare
to remain in the newspaper business.
We are here because we like it, be-
cause we honestly think we are ren-
dering the community a service. So
, you can understand now why we are
cheered up a bit by a word now and
On Wednesday a letter came from
an old, old friend, the venerable Ja-
cob Solt, of Frederick, Md., who is
now seventy-six years old and has
read the “Watchman” continuously
since he was twelve. “It would go
very hard with me to do without the
dear old paper” he writes and we
want to tell you.all that his use of
that word “dear” carries ‘a lot of
meaning to us.
Then our friend Logan Long, who
is now working up at Port Matilda,
writes in that “anyone who can’t get
a dollar and a half’s worth of news out
‘of one week’s issue of the “Watch-
man” must be blind.” We have a fear
that Log. is handing us a little bull,
but be that as it may it was mighty
fine of him to think of us at all.
And a friend out at Woodlawn,
Pa., tells us that “we enjoy your very
valuable paper immensely” and then
he takes a slam at our versatile cor-
respondent at Pleasant Gap because
that worthy scribe gets his interest
all worked up on doings at the Gap
and then lets the Gap fall clear off the
map for a few weeks.
And so they have been. Chuck full
of good wishes, friendly criticism and
| the stuff we care for least and need
| most—money.. We are grateful for
every one of them and hope the
writers will understand the utter im-
, possibility to give them the personal
acknowledgment they deserve.
John T. Harris Again Promoted.
John Tonner Harris, whom we
Bellefonters will always claim as one
‘of “our boys,” has again won a mer-
ited promotion in the organization of
the Bell Telephone company, having
been appointed division superintend-
ent of traffic of the Pittsburgh divis-
ion, which includes the Pittsburgh
central district, the Pittsburgh subur-
ban district and the Western Pennsyl-
vania district. Shortly after his grad-
uation at State College, or in 1898,
Mr. Harris entered the employ of the
. Bell Telephone company in Bellefonte
as an installer of phones. He early
showed an adaptability to the work
with the result that he was made
manager of the office at Philipsburg.
: In 1901 he was given charge of the
| Altoona territory where he remained
until 1907 when he was transferred to
| the traffic department at Harrisburg,
having successively filled the positions
: of traffic superintendent, division traf-
fic manager and division superintend-
. ent of traffic. His transfer to a larger
field not only carries with it greater
responsibilities and a nice increase in
salary but is evidence of the confi-
dence placed in him by the Bell man-
agement. The “Watchman” wishes
him continued success in his new field
of labor.
Vacation of College Township Roads
The board of road and bridge view-
ers was in session on Monday hearing
testimony for and against applica-
tions to vacate two pieces of road in
College township, one from the Oak
Hall station to the farm of Oscar

Furnace to the Big Hollow road on the

fruit, near Los Angeles, and specializes in

they call it out there, can be had from Mr.

own only one acre and when that is devel-
oped to a profitable lemon grove the re-
turns are sufficient to insure a very com-
fortable living.
