now have fifty employees, and expect
to add more men from time to time.
One year ago they paid five dollars a
day for laborers, today they pay three

News of Pennsvalley Lodges.
On the evening of the 13th the Cen-
tre Hall Rebekahs, upon previous in-
vitation from the Spring Mills Lodge,
went to Spring Mills, seventy-five
strong, where the Centre Hall degree
team conferred the degree upon five
candidates. Their work was most ef-
ficiently and effectively done. Centre
Hall Rebekah degree team is credited
with being one of the best, if not the
best, in the county.
After an evening well spent in good
fellowship and the exchange of ideas,
the Spring Mills ladies furnished a
very tasty and elaborate luncheon of
sandwiches, cake, ice cream and coffee.
On the night of March 17th the P.
0. S. of A., of Centre Hall presented
the “Drummer Boy of the Rappahan-
nock,” given by Major H. H. Hender-
shott and his son. The entertainment
they gave proved very unsatisfactory
to the Camp committee and most of
the ticket holders.
In order to give people their mon-
ey’s worth the P. O. S. of A. at once
engaged Rev. Charles Hunter, State
chaplain of the P. O. S. of A., of Phil-
adelphia, to lecture on “American
Ideals.” They issued reserve seat
tickets free of charge to all ticket
holders of the Hendershott entertain-
In connection with the lecture the
High school girls, drilled by Miss Isa-
bel Rowe, assistant principal of the
High school, gave a spring-time drill
and a flag drill, both of which indicat-
ed that the instructor and pupils were
i “on the job.”
The Misses Rowe, Isabel, Verna and
Ethel, assisted by Miss Carribelle Em-
erick, all togged out in Irish costumes
of their own make, contributed a most
pleasing part of the program by ren-
dering Irish songs, etc. They are
credited with being very much better
than some of the lyceum numbers
that come to the town.
Rev. Hunter’s lecture was timely
and proved highly satisfactory. He is
a lecturer of most pleasing personali-
ty, has a voice and delivery that any
one can be proud of, and “he hits the
nail on the head.” The local talent
work was highly commendable.
Through this the P. O. S. of A. proved
that they always endeavor to ‘come
On the evening of the 15th the
Knights of the Golden Eagle degree | bl
team from Millheim, accompanied by a
number of other members, came to
Centre Hall and conferred the three
degrees on a class of six young men.

are to be congratulated upon the fact
that they did such good work on three
different degrees. Millheim K. G. E.

from Bellefonte and Spring Mills
were also present. A Mr. Haas, a
traveling man from Shamokin, for
fifteen years a Deputy Grand Chief,
was also present and gave the unwrit-
ten work of all degrees and otherwise
contributed toward a _ successful
night’s instruction and pleasures.
Centre Hall contributed their share
by furnishing all the sandwiches,
pickles, ice cream, cake, and coffee
that those present could put “under
On the night of April 18th Rev. M.
C. Drumm and E. S. Ripka, of Centre
Hall, attended a P. O. S. of A. meet-
ing in Lock Haven, at which the Lock
Haven camp initiated fifty-eight mem-
bers for Salona camp. Salona had a
membership of sixty-two. This addi-
tion indicates that they must be all
' real Americans in and about Salona.
It would be a fine thing if all sections
would wake up to the extent that Sa-
lona has. Large delegations
present from all surrounding camps.

Take Place With the Walter L. Main
During the history of the Walter L.
Main shows they have been noted for
putting on the most intensely realist-
ic racing in its Hippodrome contests
that were ever witnessed under can-
vas, put on in a manner that distin-
guishes them from the farces of rac-
ing seen with other shows. Among
the races put on are: Flat races, run-
ning races, man against horse, hurdle
races, elephant, camel and pony races.
Also the ever exciting chariot races.
By means of cash prizes to the lady
and gentleman winning the most of
the races during the week, the show
has caused a real rivalry to exist be-
tween the contestants, and though the
racing is good natured, yet it is al-
ways for blood and testing the nerve
and ingenuity of the riders and the
speed of the horses to the entire satis-
faction of the spectators. “Oh, come,
let us go before the racing begins,” is
a remark frequently heard at circus-
| €s, but the knowing ones never make
such a suggestion when attending the
exhibition of the Walter L. Main
shows, which will be in Bellefonte for
one day, Monday, May 9th.

TEN THINGS TO REMEMBER.
. 1. Remember that everything that
is alive can feel. Sometimes there are
too many insects, and they have to be
killed. When they must die, kill them
as quickly and as mercifully as you
2. Remember that cruelty grows
like other sins if not checked.
. 3. Remember that to take pleasure
in seeing animals hurt or killed
shows that something is terribly
wrong in our nature.
4. Remember your pets—if you
keep any—and see that they do not
starve while you live in plenty.
5. Remember that cats and dogs |
Want fresh water where they can get
6. Boys who drive donkeys or horses
should remember that they must
go slowly when they have loads to
drag and that the poor animals are
made of flesh and blood. Blows will
make them weak and less able to work.
Angry words frighten and wear them
out. Use the whip as little as possible,
and encourage them with kind words.
7. When you are inclined to throw
stones at living creatures, stop and
think: “How should I like to be
bruised and to get my bones broken
for fun?” The boy who hurts or
teases small, weak animals, robs nests,
or gives pain to gentle creatures, is
8. Remember that though animals
cannot talk like men, they can under-
stand much that we say. Learn to
govern them by kind words instead of
9. Remember that the girl who
wears feathers in her hat, taken from
a bird killed on purpose, is doing a
10. Remember that every kind
deed we do, and every kind word we
say, makes us better than we were be-
