Fifty-six years ago the war of the
rebellion of the South against the
North came to an end with the surren-
der of Lee’s army at Appomattox. The
fratricidal strife continued for four
years and it was the greatest war in
history up to that time. Almost
three-score years have passed since
then and the horrors of that war have
been eclipsed by one of such magni-
tude that the Civil war almost dwin-
dles into insignificance, but those of
the men who marched forth to battle
at that time, still living today, never
falter in their devotion to the com-
rades who have passed away, but each
year wend their way to the silent cem-
eteries and strew flowers on the
graves of those who have gone before.
But the old soldiers are passing away
and their ranks are growing pitiful-
ly small. During the past year six
Civil war veterans in Bellefonte have.
answered the long roll. Time was,
not so many years ago, when Gregg
Post marshalled almost a company
strong on Memorial day. On Monday
just sixteen old veterans were in line.
The parade formed in the Diamond
promptly at 1:30 o’clock and moved as
the town clock struck two. John J.
Bower Esq., was chief marshall and
the parade as made up included Troop
L, Capt. W. Frederick Reynolds in
command; the I. 0. O. F. band of
Bellefonte; upwards of five hundred
sehool children, members of the G. A.
R., six Spanish-American war veter-
“ans, the American Legion, forty-eight
strong, including both soldiers and
sailors, the P. 0. S. of A; Knights of |
the Golden Eagle Commandery and
the Logan fire company.
. Commander S. B. Miller had charge
of the exercises at the cemetery and
at the conclusion of the G. A. R. ritu-
al introduced Samuel Hare Esq., of Al-
toona, who made the Memorial ad-
dress. An incident of the day was the
placing of special wreaths by mem-
bers of the American Legion on the
graves of John Cunningham, Richard
Corman, Joseph Anderson, Joseph
Morrison and Ira Wolfe.
Details from Gregg Post went to
Shiloh and the Meyers cemetery last
Sunday and decorated the graves of
soldiers buried in those places and the
coming Sunday members of the Post
will leave the Post rooms at 9 a. m,,
for Snydertown where services will
be held at 10 o'clock. Returning in
the afternoon services will be held at
Hublersburg at 2 o'clock and at Zion
at 4 o'clock.
Members of the Post acknowledge
with sincere thanks contributions of
flowers for Memorial day from the

Mr. and Mrs. James Harvey Rick-
ard, of Milesburg, celebrated the fif-
tieth anniversary of their marriage
last Saturday with a home-coming of
their children, grand-children and
great grand-children to the number of
twenty-six. Mr. Rickard was born at
Axe Mann seventy-three years ago,
while his wife, who before her mar-
riage was Clara Potter Thomas, was
born at Milesburg seventy-four years
ago. They were married at Miles-
burg in 1871 and shortly thereafter
moved to Lock Haven. After living
there forty years they returned to
Milesburg in 1912. Mr. and Mrs.
Rickard’s children are Mrs. W. O.
Knapp, of Mill Hall; Mrs. A. E. Suit-
er, of New York city; Edgar, of Lock
Haven; J. Boyd, of Salona; Rembrandt

Miller, widow of Sidney Miller, passed
away last Thursday at the home of
her daughter, Mrs. L. H. Wian, on east
High street, Bellefonte, as the result
of injuries sustained almost a year
ago. Readers of the “Watchman”
doubtless recall the fact that on June
28th, 1920, a heavy barn door fell up-
on Mrs. Miller at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. J. T. Noll, at Pleasant
Gap, breaking her ankle and otherwise
injuring her. Asa result of the acci-
dent she spent a number of weeks in
the Bellefonte hospital, later being re-
moved to the home of her daughter,
Mrs. Wian. Last October she was
taken to the Noll home at Pleasant
Gap where she remained until about
five weeks ago when she returned to
the Wian home, where she passed
away last Thursday.
Deceased was a daughter of John
and Mary Swaney and was born at
Pleasant Gap on June 17th, 1842,
hence was almost seventy-nine years
old. When a young woman she was
united in marriage to Sidney Miller,
of Spring township, and their entire
married life was spent in the vicinity
of Pleasant Gap. She was a life-long
member of the Lutheran church and
an upright christian womar. Possess-
ed of a kind and gentle disposition,
with always a thought for the welfare
of others, she was loved and revered
by a large circle of friends.
Her husband died a number of years
ago but surviving her are the follow-
ing children: Mrs. L. H. Wian, of
Bellefonte; Mrs. Harry D. Gehret, of
Corry; Mrs. J. T. Noll, of Pleasant
Gap, and Mrs. H. H. Kirkwood, of
Woodlawn, Pa. She also leaves three
sisters, Mrs. Levi A. Miller, of Pleas-
ant Gap; Mrs. Maggie Raudenbush, of
Bellefonte, and Mrs. Lewis Miller, of
Kansas City, Kan.
The remains were taken to the Noll
home at Pleasant Gap where funeral
services were held last Saturday
morning by Rev. Wilson P. Ard, of
Bellefonte, after which burial was
made in the Lutheran cemetery at the

Some Good Snake Stories.
H. A. Surface, of Susquehanna Uni-
veristy, formerly economic zoologist
in the State Department of Agricul-
ture, has always ridiculed the idea of
there being such reptiles as hoop-
snakes, horned snakes, etc., but if he
wants to get into an argument he
should visit Bellefonte now. The Ga-
zette last week published a story about
week by Elias Breon, of Axe Mann,
and offered to prove it with the horns.
Among those who read the story was
Elmer C. Straub, better known to his
many friends as “Waxey,” who avers
that the reptiles in question are what
is familiarly known as stone copper-
heads. In fact “Waxey” claimed to
having had an intimate acquaintance
with them when he farmed the old
Alexander farm along the mountain
where, he said, they were so plentiful
that he had bushels of the “horns”
taken from the snakes he had killed.
He probably used the horns as husk-
ing pegs and various other things
around the farm.
In discussing the horned snakes a
well known Bellefonte physician, re-
called the fact that once upon a time he
saw a snake that apparently had two
horns, one sticking out on each side of
its head, and he was so impressed with
the queer looking specimen that he got
as close to the reptile as possible to
make sure his eyes were not playing
fantastic tricks, and then he discov-
ered that the snake was in the act of
swallowing a frog and what he had at
first believed to be horns were the
frogs legs sticking out of the snake's
mouth, one on each side. .
But speaking of snakes, George Mil-
ler, of Bush’s Addition, states that last
week he discovered something was
eating his strawberries and naturally
he blamed it on the birds, as only the
ripest side of the berry would be tak-
en. But watch as close as he could he
failed to see any birds in his straw-
berry patch. On Saturday he under-
took to gather the ripe berries in his
patch and then he discovered that the
berry thief was a copperhead snake,
and the snake so resented Mr. Miller’s
intrusion into the patch that it showed
battle and when he finally got the rake
to kill it it put up a good fight but was
finally dispatched, and now he antici-
pates no more stealing of his berries.

Where It Stings.
| He wasn’t much of a hand at work;
bue when a strike was in the air Jone-
| ki was well to the front. Nothing
| pleased him better than to stand at
the hard lot
, even though at the
| same time his wife had to take in
| washing to keep herself from starv-
So he was in his element when a
strike actually happened. On the
| fourth day he swaggered into the fam-
ily kitchen, where Mrs. Joneki labor-
i ed over a steaming tub.
«And I tell you, Sarah,” he ended
his oration proudly, “the only way for
us working men to keep our liberty is
to strike while the iron’s hot, and stop
' the slave-driving capitalists from fat-
| tening on the fruit of our labor.”
Sarah straightened her weary back,
and eyed him loweringly.
“You listen to me, my man!” she re-
plied sternly. “I've heard about
enough of that clap-trap! I'm obliged
you come gassing around here I'll in-
troduce you to the argument of the
broomstick!” — Louisville Courier

Candle and Grade Eggs.
Farm women frequently have entire
charge of the marketing of eggs, but-
ter, and poultry. In some States they
form what are called “egg circles” for
marketing their eggs in large quanti-
ties. The eggs are collected regular-
ly by one f the members or by some
one hired by the circle. Efforts are
| being made by marketing agents of
j the United States Department of Ag-
riculture to teach these farm women
| the value of properly candleing and
| grading the eggs so that only the
best are marketed.
