Italian Airship in Bellefonte Last
An Italian aeroplane, the “Ansaldo,”
attracted considerable attention at the
Bellefonte aviation field on Saturday
morning during its stay of several
hours. The ship arrived in this coun-
try just about three weeks ago, hav-
ing been purchased by a Chicage com-
pany for passenger service between
that city and Milwaukee as well as
other western cities. The ship is
equipped with a three hundred horse-
power Fiat motor and is designed to
carry five passengers in addition to
the pilot. It is constructed along
beautiful lines and has about the same
wing spread as the DeHayiland planes
used by the government in the air mail
service. The fusilage is also about the
same length as the DeHaviland though
much bulkier. The pilot's seat is in
front and the passenger cabin right in
the rear of the pilot.
The ship trailed the mail plane from
New York to Bellefonte and in the act
of taking off for the trip to Cleveland
broke the tail skid, which is rigid, so
laid over here several hours while the
mechanics on the field made tempor-
ary repairs. With the ship on its in-
itial flight were the purchaser, pilot,
a Fox company motion picture opera-
. ter and Mr. Dickson, president of an
Aero club in Chicago. The latter is
sixty-three years old and an enthusi-
astic aeronautist. During the past
year he has not only learned to fly but
avers that he can loop the loop, do the
.tail spin and falling leaf and really en-
joys it.
The ship left Bellefonte at ten
o’clock and got through to Chicago
that afternoon without further mis-
hap, having stopped in Cleveland en-
High School Athletics.
Owing to the fine showing of the
Bellefonte High school track team in
winning the Centre county champion-.
ship, coach Stock will send a team to
. State College this Saturday to partic-
ipate in the interscholastic track meet.
There will be athletes there from all
the larger schools of Pennsylvania,
but the local team is expected to make
3 fine showing.
2. William Waite will run in both the
100 and the 220 yard dashes. Otto
~-1$mith will participate in either the
half mile or the two mile run; Leslie
Thomas in the broad jump, while the
“relay team will be composed of W.
Waite, W. Kline, M. Gordon, and L.
.Bodle. : .
.. The local baseball team won its sec-
‘ond victory of the season on Saturday
‘by defeating the strong Centre Hall
team by the score of 5-4. The game
“Swas a pitcher’s duel, as neither side
could hit the opposing pitcher, while
- Mensch had sixteen strike outs to his
credit. In Bellefonte’s half of the
ninth inning the score was tie. After
‘two were out in the ninth Williams
drove the ball to the fence for three
bases, and scored a moment later on
Keathley’s single.

| GLENN.—Miss Sarah Glenn, a
'! member of one of he old-time Fergu-'
| son township families, passed away:
! last Friday morning at the home of
| her niece, Mrs. Frank S. Musser, in
Altoona, of diseases incident to her
"advanced age.
! She was a daughter of John and
i Hannah Bailey Glenn and was born in
the Glades on December 17th, 1836,
hence was in her -eighty-fifth year.
She was educated in the common
schools and at the Pine Grove Mills
Academy. As a young woman she en-
gaged in teaching, a profession she
followed for many years, having the
reputation of being one of the best
educators of her day. She was com-
pelled to give up teaching to care for
her mother during her declining years
and after her death she made her
home with her niece, Mrs. Musser.
She was the last member of her fath-
er’'s family. She was a life-long
member of the Methodist church, and
her entire life was devoted to the wel-
fare and uplift of others.
Funeral services were held at the
Musser home in Altoona at two
o'clock on Sunday afternoon, after
Ridge cemetery in that city.

Bellefonte Academy News Notes.
Two track men, Henry Alwine, of
Greensburg, and Marsh Johnson, of
Jamestown, N. Y., represented the
Academy at the interscholastic meet
held at Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh,
last Saturday. They won third place
in the meet with a total.of thirty
points.” Now several other runners
are sorry they did not go, as they feel
they could have helped to win the
meet. Next Saturday a large delega-
tion will attend the -meet at State,
hoping; to win. :
This (Friday) afternoon at four
o’clock the crack Wyoming Seminary
‘nine, of Wilkes-Barre, unbeaten to
date, will play the Academy nine on
Hughes field. It will be a thriller.
The visitors recently defeated Cornell
Freshmen 3-0.
The Academy minstrels to be given
for the benefit of the firemen, on
Thursday and Friday evenings, May
19th and 20th, will produce two de-
lightful programs for the audiences
that will surely attend the perform-
ances. Mr. Hughes wishes to an-
nounce that all gallery seats will be
choice seats for such entertainments
‘as the Academy will present, if they
are clean and good order is guaran-
teed. He positively guarantees that
the gallery will be thoroughly clean-
ed and that the best of order will be
preserved. The opera house should
be packed on these occasions.
Regarding his students and circus
parades, Mr. Hughes announces that
hereafter on such occasions they will
either be kept at their school work or
required to witness the parades from
the Academy limits on promise of per-
fect order.
American Legion to Head S. A. Drive.
The Salvation Army appeal for
Centre county is well under way. The
budget for the next year’s work, in-
cluding relief work for the county, is
$6000.00, and Bellefonte has been
asked to raise $800.00 of this sum.
Mr. Nolan, the commander of the
American Legion, has consented to
act as the local chairman for the ap-
peal in Bellefonte and the American
Legion boys under the leadership of
the commander will make a canvass
this week for the funds. The money
that is being raised this year is for
the extension of the Army’s work in
the county and your giving will help
and bless some one else. :
Philipsburg Hotels Raided.
Rev. R. E. Johnson, the “raiding
parson,” of Philadelphia, with his
wrecking crew slipped quietly into
and raided three hotels, securing
twelve cases of whiskey. The hotels
raided were the Continental, Joseph
Dugan, proprietor; the Farmer's hotel,
W. R. Bowser proprietor, and the
Ramsdale, Conrad Juschik proprietor.
Rev. Johnson - took samples - of the
whiskey for use against the landlords
when action is brought in the U. 8,
court, the confiscated wet goods being
stored in the basement of the Phil-
ipsburg postoffice.

Big Crowd at Main’s Show.
The - Walter L. Main show drew a
large crowd to Bellefonte on Monday,
in fact so large that at the afternoon
performance the tent was crowded be-
yond the stage of comfortable capac-
ity, while some had to be turned away.
The show came to Bellefonte from Ty-
rone Sunday morning and by nine
o’clock was unloaded and down on the
old fair grounds. Sunday afternoon
hundreds of people motored to the fair
grounds to look the show over, and
they must have been favorably im-
pressed, as the estimated crowd in at-
tendance on Monday afternoon was
placed at three thousand people. The
show gave a street parade at noon,
and though it was not ‘very long,
everything was clean and fresh look-
ing and presented a good appearance.
While the prices for admission and re-
served seats combined ‘were a little :
stiff the performance was clean and
good throughout, though of course not
as varied as the big shows. Some of
the acts were new to Centre county
circus goers, hence all the more inter-
esting. .
- So far as could be learned the show
throughout was clean and devoid of
the usual troupe of circus followers
of the gambling type. Not a single
complaint was made of any attempt
to flimflam the gullible public in any
way and had it not been for the un-
fortunate accident in the afternoon in
which a young girl lost her life the
day would have passed by without an
unpleasant incident.
Kreider—Baisor.—Herbert D. Krei-
der, a son of Rev. and Mrs. Isaac
Kreider, of Duncansville, and Miss
Beatrice Baisor, a daughter of J. W.
Baisor, of Philipsburg, were married
in the Lutheran church at Duncans-
ville, on Tuesday by the bridegroom’s
father, Rev. Isaac Kreider. The young
couple will make their home at Elyria,
Ohio, where Mr. Kreider is foreman
in the pattern shop of the Garford
foundries. .
‘ Deitrich—Smith.—Leslie J. Dei-
trich and Miss Mary K. Smith, both
of Hublersburg, were united in the ho-
ly bonds of matrimony at the Reform-
‘ed parsonage in Bellefonte, at noon
on Tuesday, by the pastor, Rev. Dr.
‘ Ambrose M. Schmidt. Immediately
! after the ceremony they left by auto-
mobile on a motor trip to Altoona and
other places, expecting to return home
in a few days.

The Potato Magazine calls attention
to the fact that certain regions of the
upper peninsula of Michigan have
been virtually freed ofthat notorious
pest, the potato bug, by the operations
of a tiny parasitic fly which lays its
eggs upon the striped beetle. Grubs
hatched from these eggs bore into the
potato bug’s body and eat out his in-
side works.
If it were not for parasites that
prey upon the potato bug, it * would
scarce be possible to grow any pota-
toes in this country, despite all the
farmer could do to poison the insect
with paris green.
That destructive beetle was orig-
inally native to mountain districts of
Colorada, where it fed on a wild va-
riety of potato plant called the “sand
bur.” It is, supposed to have been car-
ried into Missouri by the cattle traffic,
and in 1864 it crossed the Mississippi
river. In .the early seventies it had
crossed the Detroit river and Lake

in such numbers that hatches had to

At that period and for some time

the potato would become an extinct
vegetable in the United States. But
nature has a way of dealing with such
mischiefs, and before long parasitic
