Bellefonte, Pa., May 20, 1921.
Items of Interest Dished Up for the
Delectation of “Watchman” Read-
ers by a Corps of Gifted
The family of Harry Grove, of Ty-
rone, are visiting Mrs. John Herman,
mother of Mrs. Grove.
If Bill Haywood realy left the coun-
try, and forfeited his bail, it is to be
hoped he will never return.
Mr. Emanuel H. Zeigler, of Madi-
sonburg, was at Pleasant Gap last Sat-
urday, looking after the welfare of his

sive milk dealer, has installed a huge

Mrs. Smith, of Milesburg, and Mrs.
Rockey, of Bellefonte, were over Sun-
day visitors with the venerable Mrs.
Now that the coal strike in England
has cut off coal from the breweries,
English workmen find that the strik-
ing miners have hit them below the
Paying $4,000,000 for an ounce of
radium don’t seem high to a man who
has just paid the current price for a
case of rotten moonshine, or a pound
of creamery butter.
The Misses Nettie and Lizzie Gill,
after spending a month at Hecla Park,
have returned home. Their vacation
proved quite beneficial, physically, to
both of the young ladies.
Mrs. J. D. Herman left for Berwick
on Tuesday last as representative of
the Methodist Sunday school to the
Sunday school convention which con-
vened there on Wednesday.
W. G. Rossman and wife very kind-
ly volunteered to take Mr. and Mrs.
I. A. Miller and Mrs. Kate Furey
Hunter, of Pittsburgh, now visiting at
the Miller home, on a little drive in
their new Dodge, to State College and
over into Huntingdon county beyond
Pennsylvania Furnace. The trip prov-
ed a most enjoyable event to all.
Samuel Noll, our efficient delivery
man, is laid up with the mumps. Many
housewives are missing his genial
countenance, as he is surely a crack-
erjack in his profession. The incident
is to be regretted, since he has been
engaged in rigging up his air plane,
hence we will be obliged to wait for a
time before we will be able to take
our promised spin heavenward.
Guy Wells is again an employee at
the fish hatchery. He served in the
same capacity for several years but
when higher salaries prevailed else-
where during the late unpleasantness,
he resigned his position and accepted
a more lucrative one. When the high
labor craze subsided Guy retcrned and
is doing business at the old stand; and
will make good, as he does on all oc-
The new penitentiary management
is greatly improving the grain produc-
tion of that institution. They have
600 acres of very promising wheat to
harvest the present season. They also
planted seventy acres of potatoes,
which will prove quite a saving, since
they require some thousands of bush-
els to supply their wants. Their oats
crop is the finest we have seen any-
where this season.
Mother Eve, sitting under the over-
hanging branches of the tree of life,
sewing together the beautiful foliage
thereof to cover human nakedness, is
the first example of human modesty,
that modesty which is the foundation
of all morality which clothes the form
in graceful movements. If Mother
Eve were living on this earth today,
what would she think of our half na-
ked population, parading the streets
in brazen effrontery. She would have
her modesty shocked.
Our neighbor, Thomas Jodon, hav-
ing recovered from his recent illness,
is again scouring the country far and
wide, buying cattle. When prostrated
with sickness, he thought he would
retire for the balance of his days from
the activities of life, if he recovered.
However, as Tommy is a great favor-
ite among the farmers and has made
many friends through legitimate deal-
ing, he has changed his mind and is
back at the old calling. It seems it is
utterly impossible to side track a live,
enthusiastic man in his disposition.
He is in the market to purchase about
any animal that walks on four legs.
It is to be regretted that the cherry
crop in this vicinity was destroyed by
the frost. The plum crop also suffer-
ed somewhat. The apple crop, except-
ing the early varieties, will, from pres-
ent indications, yield a sufficiency to
supply the demand. Fortunately the |
strawberry crop will apparently help
us out. The ever-bearing variety is
here in actual fact. It has been test-
ed, tried and proved. It has made
good in commercial and home garden
plantings in widely varying parts of
the entire country. They bear the
first year and give us rich, ripe fruit
from June to November. The great
value of the ever-bearing strawberry
so far has been appreciated by only a
few growers—but these growers are
reaping profits far in excess of the re-
turns from the old-time standard va-
rieties. The doubters have only to try
and see these wonderful berries to be-
come as enthusiastic as those who are
now growing them so successfully.
The first crop is borne early in the sea-
son, at the same time as the standard
or June bearing varieties, then there
is a continuation of blooming, and
producing ripe fruit throughout the
summer, if conditions are favorable.
Then there is a continuation of bloom-
ing period in the late summer, and a
large crop follows until severe frosts
come. You pick strawberries for four
or five months instead of one.
Drought, that cuts off the crop for the
year on common or standard varieties,
simply checks the ever-bearing varie-
ties, and they come on as productive
as ever with the first rains, producing
new blooms and starting another crop.
The berry crop will help us out. No
cause for alarm.

Motors Steadily Retiring Horses.
The rapidity with which the horse
is being supplanted by the tractor and
the truck on the farm of the State
is shown by estimates made public by
the statistical bureau of the Depart-!
ment of Agriculture. Since 1916 the
number of horses owned by farmers
has decreased 53,043, while the num- |
ber of trucks on farms has increased
to 14,325 and the number of tractors
to 6,823. |
In 1916 there were 593,000 horses
on the farms, according to the depart--
ment’s estimates, while last year the
number had dropped to 539,957. The
tractor virtually was unknown prior |
to 1917, but the war added impetus to
the use of both tractors and trucks. |
In 1916 there were 2100 trucks on,
Pennsylvania farms, but no record of |
the number of tractors was kept until
the following year, when there were
1080. Last year there were 14,325
trucks and 6823 tractors.
A Safe Test
Tor those who are in need of a rem-
edy for kidney troubles and backache,
it is a good plan to try Doan’s Kidney
Pills. They are strongly recommend
by Bellefonte people.
Mrs. J. F. Thal, 23 N. Thomas St.,
Bellefonte, says: “I suffered with
backache and severe pains through my
kidneys. I had headaches and dizzy
spells Ya I first got up in the morn-
ing and my kidneys acted irregularly.
My attention was called to Doan’s
Kidney Pills and I heard of so many
being benefitted by their use that I
procured a box at the Green Pharma-
cy Co. That one box removed the
backache. The headaches and dizzy
spells left and my kidneys became
regular and I felt better in every way.
I cheerfully recommend Doan’s to
any one who suffers as I did.” (State-
ment given October 19, 1919).
On October 18, 1920, Mrs. Thal
said: “I am very glad to confirm my
former endorsement of Doan’s Kidney
Pills. Today I am a well woman and
to recommend Doan’s is a pleasure.”

The American Legion.
With the establishment of posts of
the American Legion in eighteen for-
eign countries, the ex-service men’s
organization is fast becoming a world
power, according to reports received |
at national headquarters. :
Although these posts are thousands
of miles from national headquarters,’
the various activities are little differ-
ent from those of the domestic posts.
Headquarters of the Amaroc Post
at Coblenz, Germany, have been es-
tablished in a hotel. The post has
grown from fifteen to six hundred.
Tokyo-Yokahoma post, in Japan, has |
increased from forty to eighty-three |
members. The two cities are connect- |
ed by rapid trolley service and meet- |
ings of the post are held alternately |
in Tokyo and in Yokahoma. |
Posts of the Legion are now locat- |
ed in the following foreign countries: |
Mexico, Venezuela, Panama, Argen- |
tine Republic, Belgium, England,
Chile, China, Cuba, France, Germany,
Guatemala, Japan, Poland Samoa,
Santo Domingo, Peru and Africa.
Ex-service men in Auckland, New
Zealand, are also organizing a post.
Many Bellefonte people are using
simple glycerine, buckthorn bark, ete.,
as mixed in Adler-i-ka. This flushes
BOTH upper and lower bowel so com-
pletely it removes all foul, accumulat-
ed poisons from alimentary canal and
prevents appendicitis. Adler-i-ka re-
lieves ANY CASE gas on stomach or
sour stomach. Often CURES consti-
ation. In one case of chronic stom-
ach trouble ONE bottle produced won-
derful results. Runkle’s Drug Bo
