The Business Men’s association
of Millheim held a big banquet on
Tuesday evening as a sort of a cele-
bration of what they believe is the
dawn of a great industrial boom for
that town and vicinity. Some fifty
or more members and invited guests
were present and the affair is heralded
as one of great success.
March didn’t come in like a
roaring lion, neither was it very lamb-
like, but we want to declare right here
that we are off all those old-time
weather saws for good. The ground
hog promised us six weeks of nice
weather following February 2nd and
we have had more real winter since
that day than all the season prior to

and careful attention to business there
is no reason why the young men

Lodge now has five half century mem-

any lodge.

granted the thirteen liquor license ap-

The Logan Fire company cele-
brated the fifty-first anniversary of its
organization last Thursday evening
with quite an elaborate banquet. Over
seventy-five members and guests were
present and it proved quite a memora-

toastmaster and brief responses were
made by Judge Henry C. Quigley,
Hon. Thomas Beaver, Dr. M. J. Locke,
Roy Wilkinson and John J. Bower.
Miss Pearl MacDonald, of The
Pennsylvania State College, will talk
on “Food for Children,” this (Friday)
afternoon at three o’clock in the High
school building. This talk is intend-
ed especially for parents or those hav-

should avail themselves of this oppor-
tunity to hear the best authority on
this important subject. Many chil-

only by proper food. Make an effort

-Methodist ministers throughout
Pennsylvania are now getting their
affairs in shape for the annual Cen-
tral Pennsylvania M. E. conference
which this year will be held in the
Methodist church at Newberry, begin-
ning March 16th. Bishop McDowell
will preside and the usual questions of
importance in church government will
be disposed of. Naturally, the most
important question with the ministers
in the conference is that of the as-
signments of the ensuing year, but so
far there has been no intimation of an
unusual shake-up in this direction.
James E. Solt, for years a well
Inown shoemaker in Bellefonte, closed
his shop last week and on Sunday
morning left for Williamsport to make
his future home with his son Grover.
While he had no definite plans matur-
ed it is just possible that he may open
_up a shop in that city and show the
people down there some real, honest
to goodness cobbling. Jim has been a
resident of Bellefonte for many years
and his friends here regret that he
found it necessary to change his
abode, especially for the reason that
the powers that be might not appreci-
ate just how good a Democrat he is.
How the Women Felt Over Doing
Jury Duty.
The February term of court con-
vened on Monday morning with Judge
Quigley on the bench. The usual mo-
tions and petitions were presented
after which the list of grand jurors
was gone over. Mrs. C. W. Hunter,
the only woman called to serve on the
grand jury, took advantage of the
court’s offer to excuse her from duty
and did not appear. E. J. Williams
was appointed foreman of the grand
jury. When the list of traverse jurors
was gone over it was discovered that
two out of the nine women summoned
had availed themselves of the court’s
offer to excuse them and did not re-
port for duty. The other women were
all there and practically all of them
served on one or more cases, some on
two or three. Regarding their exper-
ience one of the lady jurors probably
expressed the sentiment of all in the
following statement to the “Watch-
“The women who served as jurors
wish to express their appreciation for
the help and courtesies extended them
by the Court.
“All felt that when they had been
called to serve in that capacity that it
was a civic duty they should take ser-
iously and not shirk, for so long as
women must be tried in our courts we
should have women represented on the
“Now that a fair opportunity has
been given women to demonstrate
their ability in this new field we do
wish to encourage the policy of their
occupying it.
“There is no question as to the qual-
ification of women to serve as jurors.
It is only just that women should have
the right to enforce the laws which
they help put upon the statute books,
and each one should be a champion of
equality and justice, and help exact
from lawyers and judges a standard
of courtesy and refinement which in
some courts today has fallen shock-
ingly low.
“Our experience was not disagree-
able in any way. It was interesting
and instructive, and all expressed their
willingness to serve again at some fu-
ture time.” :
After the list of civil cases had been
gone over and most of them continued
for various reasons the case of George
L. Robinson vs. Isaac Heaton & Son,
was taken up. It was an action in as-
sumpsit to recover the difference on
a coal contract. After the evidence
was all in counsel for the defendant
asked the court for binding instruc-
tions in favor of the defendant, which
were given.
In the case of the Commonwealth
vs. the Supervisors of Potter town-
ship, indicted for failure to maintain
the township roads, the indictment
was quashed on motion of defendant’s
counsel. | :
Commonwealth vs. Peter Garmella,
indicted for selling liquor without a
license. This case was from Philips-
burg and was the result of the defend-
ant’s selling Jamaica ginger, the Com-
monwealth alleging the ginger was
sold for beverage purposes. At the
close of Commonwealth’s testimony
counsel for defendant made a motion
for the discharge of the defendant for
the lack of incriminating evidence and
the court so ordered.
Roxanna Knoff vs. Jerry Sowers, an
appeal. Verdict in favor of the plain-
tiff for $135.00, less $10.25.
" The grand jury completed its work
on Tuesday morning and in its report
recommended a number of minor re-
pairs to court house and jail.
Overstocked With Booze.
Bellefonte’s depository for confis-
cated booze—the old wine vault in the
cellar of the postoffice—is already
somewhat overstocked and the Belle-
fonte attorney representing the feder-
al enforcement commission has recom-
mended either the destruction or re-
moval of the wet goods. Aside from
the stock of old wines and lipuors con-
fiscated from the Garman house, and
which the government holds subject
to a decision as to its legal ownership,
and the forty gallons of grain alcohol
captured from one of the illegal booze
runners, about the safest way to dis-
pose of the rest of it would be by the
sewer route. The beer stored there
is probably now in no condition for
any use, even by parties authorized to
handle the same, while as to the whis-
key, there has been so much counter-
feiting of the real article that it would
hardly be safe to dispose of it either
to hospitals or manufacturing chem-
ists. But of course, the government
agents will eventually dispose of it
as they see fit, so there is not much
use in offering suggestions.

High School Basket Ball.
For the second time this season
Bellefonte registered a victory over
Lock Haven. The game with their
old rivals last week was a thriller
from start to finish and the 25-22 vic-
tory was well deserved. The local
boys seemed not a bit discouraged
over the loss of two regulars, but dis-
played excellent spirit and team work.
The High school team will play its
last regularly scheduled home game of
the season with their greatest league
rivals, Tyrone, in the armory this
(Friday) evening. Tyrone now stands
second in the league and will offer
strong opposition. However, with
Lock Haven victories to their credit,
the local boys feel confident that they
will take Tyrone into camp but at the
same time realize they will have to
deliver their best to accomplish the
task. The game promises plenty of
action and should draw a record
breaking crowd.
——The show given in the opera
house last Thursday night under the
name of “The Trail of the Lonesome
Pine,” proved to be only a “trail,” as
there was very little of the real thing
to it, according to those who had the
temerity to attend.
——The principal question discuss-
ed at the regular meeting of the Belle-
fonte Business Men’s association on
Wednesday night was that of band
concerts during the coming summer.
The sentiment of the association was
in favor of the concerts and the music
committee was empowered to see what
can be done in the way of securing
financial support for the same.
Word was received here last
Friday morning that a son had been
born to Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Rob-
erts, of Dayton, Ohio. It just hap-
pens that this wee feather from the
wings of love that has fallen into the
lap of motherhood makes the Hon.
John Francies a grand-father, and
while we most cordially felicitate such
a happy event we cannot resist advis-
ing Mrs. Mae Francies Roberts that a
certain distinguished gentleman for
whose judgment we have the highest
regard in every other respect will like-

Last Saturday afternoon as the
University of Buffalo basket ball team
was enroute to State College for a
game with the State quintette they
had a few minutes to spare in Tyrone
and stepping up to a four wheeler
baggage truck standing on the station
platform they proceeded to while away
the time by shooting crap. Capt. A.
R. Barr, of the railroad police force,
and sergeant Bowers, of the Middle
division force, walked up to the col-
lege crap shooters and after watching
a few fancy passes invited the eight
young men to take a walk over to
’Squire Taylor’s office and that gentle-
man calmly informed them that their
pastime was worth just $3.25 each to
the borough of Tyrone, which they
paid, and this was probably one of the
reasons why they were so overwhelm-
ingly defeated by the Penn State
passers. The experience of the Buf-
falo students should serve as a warn-
ing to others, never to engage in a
crap game in Tyrone with officers in
plain sight.

Chu Chin Chow.
The world’s most beautiful produc-
tion, “Chu Chin Chow,” will have its
first and only showing in Altoona at
the Mishler Theatre for the entire
week of March 21st, with matinees on
Wednesday and Saturday.
No production in. the past decade
has attracted so much comment or
elicited so much praise as the Afier-
ican production of the big Oscar
Asche spectacle, which was made un-
der the personal direction of F. Ray
Comstock and Morris Gest. It is the
largest traveling organization on tour
in America. Described as an animat-
ed spectacle of ancient Bagdad, with
its story of a thousand and one
nights, “Chu Chin Chow” is shown in
fourteen complete scenes, employs the
services of 300 people, has 867 cos-
tumes and 18 delightful musical num-
bers. The feast in the palace of Ka-
sim Baba, the rich merchant of Bag-
dad, with its ballets, is said to be one
of the greatest examples of consum-
mate stage craft. In addition the
blue hall, the slave mart, the bazaar
at Bagdad, the rose terrace, the orch-
ard in the moonlight, the robber’s
cave, and other richly vested settings
are of such amazing beauty that the
spectator is often spellbound.
“Chu Chin Chow” was originally
written and produced by Oscar Asche,
creator of “Kismet,” at His Majesty’s
theatre, London, and for five years
has amazed the world by continuous
playing to capacity audiences.
During the Altoona engagement
night performances are announced to
start at 8 p, m. and matinees at 2 p.
m. :
Bowman Bro’s Minstrels.
If you are sad—cheer up. If every-
thing has gone wrong lately—take
heart. There is an antidote for the
blues, succor for the downhearted,
sureness for the wronged in sight.
“The best of them all,” The Bowman
Bro’s All Star Minstrels—by all odds
the funniest minstrel entertainment
ever presented—will be seen for the
first time in Bellefonte at the opera
house Tuesday, March 15th. And
these are not the words of the press
agent, but the consensus of opinion of
the country at large. For years the
Bowman Bro’s have been recognized
as headliners on the “Big Time” vau-
deville as worthy rivals of McIntyre
and Heath, in the delineation of
Southern negro comedy which guar-
antees a riot of laughter from start to
finish. They have an olio as good as
ever presented by any minstrel organ-
ization with themselves heading the
bill; Georgie Hunter, “The Dixie Daf-
fodil” rapid free comedy, the great
Orth, the “Tetrazzina of Minstrelsy,”
Matt J. Thompson as. “Aunt Chloe”
and her five Jemima’s eccentric
dancers. The Blue Grass Five Jazz
Band, The Knickerbocker Four, come-
dy quartette; Whalen & Trainer, ex-
pert wooden and soft shoe dancers.
The opening first part radiates with
the glorious and sumptuous presenta-
tion “Roseland,” in which melody and
song predominate. The many and fa-
mous solo and ballad singers are sup-
ported by a large chorus, interspersed
with rapid fire comedy from the com-
edians which rocks the walls with
laughter and closes with a grand en-
semble from the opera “Aida.”
Annual Athletic Banquet at Belle-
fonte Academy.
The annual athletic banquet at the
Bellefonte Academy was held in the
Academy banquet hall last Friday
evening from six until ten o'clock.
Covers were laid for one hundred and
twenty-five and a delicious menu was
provided. Excellent music was fur-
nished by the Louis Hill orchestra.
Mrs. J. C. Hess played a beautiful in-
strumental solo of her own composi-
tion entitled “The Lark,” which called
forth a hearty encore.
Mr. James R. Hughes acted as
toastmaster and conducted the most
successful program of toasts ever of-
fered at these banquets. The decora-
tions of gold and blue were very at-
tractive. The toasts interspersed with
music, were as follows:
“Our Champions,”
“The Quintet,” Stanley Smith.
“Great Things Ahead on the Dia-
mond,” Russell Roller.
“Things are Moving,” Russell Phil-
“Are We in it with the Best Pre-
paratory Schools?” James Foreman.
“Watch Us on the Track,” De
“Lessons from the Life of George
Washington,” Rev. Wilson P. Ard.
“School Days the Best,” Richard
“The Minstrels a School Feature,”
Boyd C. Parshall, Jr.
Presentation of athletic diplomas
and letters, J. R. Hughes.
“The Gold and the Blue,”
“Our Boys at College,” Fred Stamm.
“What would We Do Without
Them ?” Louis Trax.
“What is Required of Us,”
George F. Reiter.
“Reminiscenses,” Hon. Ellis L. Or-
William Ash-
Dr. A. E. Martin, of State College.
Dr. Sylvester Beach Honored.
Through the courtesy of Mrs. Wis-
tar Morris, of Overbrook, the “Watch-
man has received a copy of The Par-
ket, a paper published at Princeton,
N. J., which contains an elaborate ac-
count of a reception given to Rev. Dr.
Sylvester W. Beach by the First Pres-
byterian church of that city on the
occasion of the fifteenth anniversary
of his pastorate there. The item is of
“American Expansion Since 1897,” |
| some interest in Bellefonte because of |
the fact that Dr. Beach spent one year |
"in Bellefonte as an instructor at the
Bellefonte Academy and his wife was
a Bellefonte girl, Miss Orbison. As
evidence of how greatly the
Princeton church appreciates the min-
isterial efforts of Dr. Beach the con-
: gregation presented him with a purse
gold pieces.
Dr. Beach graduated at Princeton
about 1876, was pastor of a church in
Baltimore from 1880 to 1887, then
went to Bridgeton, N. J., where he
remained until 1901 when he went to
Paris and worked in the student’s
quarter. Returning to the States in
1905 he was given a call by the
Princeton church, which he acccepted.
During his fifteen year’s labor there
the church membership has increased
from 421 to 674; he has been instru-
mental in raising for all purposes a
total of $163,452. He has attended
252 funerals, delivered 1950 sermons
and addresses and made 9000 pastoral
calls. a

Question 1—What is the high limit
of temperature for a school-room ?
Answer—70 degrees.

against germs.
Question 3—What is the objection
to the feather duster?
Answer—The feather duster dis-
places dust but does not remove it.
About 1000 boards of health are
functioning in Pennsylvania. Some
are at work, some are loafing.
The next lesson entitled “The
Board of Health” is about a determin-
ed woman, an obstinate man and a
spineless Board of Health and illus-
trates the method by which the State
Department of Health enforces
health laws in municipalities where
the boards of health are derelict of
their duties.

Additional Honors for Dr. Armsby.
Dr. Henry Prentiss Armsby, direc-
tor of the institute of animal nutri-
tion at The Pennsylvania State Col-
lege, was recently conferred with hon-
orary membership in Gamma Delia
Sigma, for “distinguished services to
agriculture.” Dr. Armsby, through
his investigations with the animal res-
piration calorimeter at State College,
| the only plant of its kind in this coun-
try, has done more for agricultural in-
terests in the country than any other
man at the college. This is the third

gree of Doctor of Science from Yale

in the “Big Hollow,” but he's just as af-
fable and, we thought, a little mere so
than ever when he so heartily agreed with
our remark that we have had a lovely win-
ter. Then it leaked out that he lives on a
corner at State College and has 250 feet of
outside pavement and a winter without
much snow to shovel surely is lovely to

al game, but we didn’t know he is a chick-
en fancier. It appears that he is, how-
ever, and we wouldn't like to tell you how
many eggs one of his hens laid in a year
for fear you might not know him to be the
gentleman of truth and veracity as we do.
But he has electric light in the coop and
fools them, like so many others are doing
now, into thinking the days are longer
than they are and the silly chicken works

runs across the road just in front of your
motor when there seems to be no reason in
the world for such foolishness.

A Siamese Pig.
| Donald Gettig came into town
| yesterday with a load of porkers for
his father’s meat market and brought
with him a freak pig that had been
still-born with a litter on the farm of
Claude Hoy up near Shiloh.
The little animal was perfectly de-
veloped back to a short distance be-
yond its shoulders and there two bod-
ies appeared with two extra front
legs and four hind ones. oe
It gives the appearance of one little
pig’s head and neck having grown in-
to the chest of the other, for beyond
that they look like two fairly well
formed pigs.
