Interesting Pictures of the Far North.
The Business Men’s association of
Bellefonte, through their president,
Mr. Walter Cohen, has been sueccess-
ful in making arrangements with Dr.
John W. Ruskin to bring his pictures
to the Garman opera house on Wed-
nesday, January 5th, for a matinee
and night entertainment. At a recent
meeting of the Business Men’s asso-
ciation, Dr. Ruskin entertained them
with a vivid and intensely interesting
lecture, relating his life of three years
with the Eskimos of northern Green-
land. While in Bellefonte he also en-
tertained the students of the High
For over three years he and his
companions lived in northern Green-
land without civilized food and with-
out a haircut, bath or a shave. Dur-
ing that time, Dr. Ruskin was success-
ful in securing many remarkable pic-
tures of the wild life and unusual
scenes depicting Eskimo civilization.
In addition to his views of the Far
North, he will show many remarkable
scenes taken in the South Sea Islands,
Borneo and India. In India, Dr.
Frederick A. Cook, Dr. Frank P.
Thompson and Dr. Edwin Brook, com-
panions of Dr. Ruskin, were arrested
in Calcutta and thrown into jail,
charged with being in the employ of
the Imperial German government as
spies. Ten days later they fully es-
tablished their identity and then pro-
ceeded to make a complete trip around
the world; visiting many of the
South Sea Islands and Borneo, return-
ing to the United States by the way of
Russia. He is bringing to Bellefonte
a most wonderful series of pictures,
especially selected from over 10,000
- views that he has made in all parts of
the world during the past eighteen

Herbert’s Greater Minstrels.
It has been some time since the
theatre goers of Bellefonte have had
an opportunity to see an old fashion-
ed minstrel show, given by genuine
negro talent from the south land, and
giving the same performance that we
are wont to see given by white per-
formers, in their burnt cork disguise.
In fact it is quite out of the ordinary,
in these days of make believe, to have
the real article brought to us, and as
we understand a company of extraor-
dinary merit embracing all the negro
minstrel celebrities of any note.
The name of Herbert may not mean
much to you who live many miles
from the home, and regular territory
played by this organization. In the
south land the name is well known to
theatre goers, as the embodiment of
all that is famous, as the best sing-
ing organization that ever graced a
minstrel first part setting. In addi-
tion to the sweet singing voices that
make harmony, such as is seldom
heard, it is an accepted fact that no
such dancers in all the world of min-
strelsy, can in any way compare with
the nimble footed artists with this
Herbert’s Greater Minstrels will be
at the Garman opera house Tuesday,
January 4th, and should make a
<= strong bid for patronage among the
lovers of minstrelsy. 51-1t

Great care has been taken by the
Broadway Amusement company in se-
lecting the artists to portray the dif-
ferent characters in their dramatiza-
tion of Gene Stratton-Porter’s novel,
“Freckles.” The most difficult part to
fill was that of Freckles as it not only
requires an exceedingly young and
handsome actor, but one who is pos-
sessed of a grand opera voice as well.
At least fifty different applicants
were interviewed before one was se-
lected. The young Irish tenor who
will appear here in the title role of
“Freckles” proved to be one of only
two out of the fifty who passed the
severe examination. There are eight
beautiful song numbers throughout
this play, four of which are sung by
“Freckles.” The company will ap-
pear at Garman’s next Wednesday

——The iron railroad bridge that
has been in course of construction in
this place during the past six weeks
or longer, was moved into position or
the line of the Lewisburg and Tyrone
railroad, across Spring creek, on Sun-
day. The work train from Sunbury
arrived in Bellefonte on Saturday
evening and early Sunday morning
work was begun on tearing out the old .
wooden bridge. The heavy iron gird-
ers were picked up by the crane and
‘loaded onto a car on the siding and as
fast as one span of the old bridge was
torn out a span of the new bridge was
pulled into place on the concrete abut-
ments by rope and tackle. There was
no confusion, noise or bluster, not-
withstanding the fact that in the
neighborhood of seventy-five » men
were on the job. Each man did his
work and by 1:30 o’clock the bridge
was all in place and by five o’clock the
ties were down and rails on and the
bridge in shape for traffic. The walk
along the track across the bridge was
put down this week and track adjust-
ments, etc., made.

——District forester W. J. Bart-

ed by Centre and Mifflin county hunt-
ers on the Penn State forest reserva-
tion during the fifteen days of the
season; 104 killed on the Kishacoquil-
las division; 83 on the Seven moun-
‘tain division; two on the Nittany
mountain division and 31 on the Cur-
tin division, a total of 440. This in-
cludes the Seven mountain range in
both Centre and Mifflin counties, but
the above figures were probably con-
solidated from various reports made
and cannot be considered as entirely
accurate. If all hunters who killed a
deer have sent in their statement to
the State Game Commission, a correct
report of the kill in each county
should be forthcoming in the near fu-
ture. :

! which were spent in the guard house.
When Sergeant Allen covered him on
' his capture Saturday night, Johnston
took the arrest very much as a matter |
of fact, and was very cool about it, |
but Sergeant Allen and Mr. Giles took
‘no chances with him; they handcuffed

Sergeant Allen took his prisoner east

i On his last desertion about a month

thence to his home in Philipsburg. He

Big Skating Pond on Hughes Field !
Nearing Completion.
Lovers of the skating sport are be-
coming quite excited over the pros-
pect of enjoying their favorite pas-
time in the near future. It will be
good news to many to learn that with
rone more week of favorable weather
the large force at work on the big
pond on Hughes field will have exca-
vated a basin 320 feet long by an av-
erage of 60 feet in width. Mr. Hughes
is having the walls of the western end
lined, or cribbed, with boards so that
there need be no fear of a break in
the clay walls.
The entrance to the pond will be
at the northwest corner, by steps sup-
ported by a strong railing. Benches
will be provided for the skaters to
use while putting on or taking off
4 their skates. Mr. Hughes has ar-
ranged with the State-Centre Elec-

i pond soon after New Years, when the
i inauguration of this splendid enter-

Many young people are also think-
ing of the swimming they will be able
, to enjoy in this pond during the sum-
mer months. Mr. Hughes says that
he will have the most complete and

Mike Evans, a miner employed in
the Snow Shoe ope: ations of the Le-

dead at the side of the main road near
Snow Shoe last Thursday morning,
and all indications point to the fact
that he fell over the bank in the dark
and broke his neck. The body was
discovered by Robert Kech, about 6:30
o’clock in the morning, while on his
way to work, but the face and cloth-
ing were so covered with mud that it
was some time before the man was
recognized. : 2
District attorney James C. Furst
was communicated with and he in-
structed justice of the peace George
F. Brown, of Clarence, to hold an in-
quest and conduct an investigation in-
to the cause of death. From various
persons in that locality it was learn-
ed that the dead body was that of
Mike Evans. It was also learned that
after. quitting work in the mines on
Wednesday evening he had changed
his clothing and gone to Clarence.
Leaving there he took a shortcut to
the boarding house of Andrew Basal-

Only twenty-four more hours until
Christmas and if you have not done
up all your packages don’t be sparing
of your Christmas seals. Bellefonte
has not nearly used up its quota of
seals and in your spirit of Christmas
giving there is no gift that will count
for more than the money you expend
for Christmas seals. Every seal used
means hope to some individual bat-
tling for his or her life, and we all
ought to be willing to extend the little
, assistance we can give in buying and
' using the Christmas seals. A portion
“of the money realized for the seals
will be used right here in your home
| community, so that your friends and
{ your neighbors will reap the benefit.
The seals can also be used up until
New Year’s day, or later, so don’t stop
i buying just because tomorrow is
