Not enough councilmen could
be gotten together on Monday even-

was nothing special to atteend to the

pumpers it would be wise to purchase,
but are carefully considering the mer-

present time the LaFrance and’ the

——0On Wednesday morning Mrs.
James Uzzle, of Snow Shoe, and sev-
“eral of her children were in Bellefonte
on a shopping expedition, her seven-
teen year old son having driven in in
their Cadillac car. On the return trip
home, while making the detour in the
neighborhood of Hancock’s place, the
car caught fire and though all the oc-
cupants got out without any mishap
the top and a good part of the wood-
work of the car was destroyed. Mr.
Uzzle just recently took the car home
from Huntingdon, where it had been
thoroughly overhauled at the Vuille
agency. What occasioned the fire is
a mystery to those in the car at the
time, as the first knowledge they had
of it was when the flames began to
‘shoot out from under the hood.
Killed and Robbed in His Home Near
Hannah Furnace.
George M. Marks, an aged and well
known resident of Taylor township,
was brutally murdered in his home
about a half mile west of Hannah Fur-
nace presumably on Tuesday night of
last week, although the murder was
not discovered until Friday morning.
Marks lived alone in a small house,
his wife having left him almost twen-
ty years ago. The last time he was
seen alive by his nearest neighbors
was about six o'clock on Tuesday
evening when he was seen sitting on
his porch.
No one seeing him on Wednesday
and Thursday naturally caused com-
‘ment and on Friday morning his neigh-
bors decided to investigate, as they
feared he might be sick and in need
of help. Consequently, John Marks,
a brother, J. A. Walk, Alfred and Joe
Larkins went to the Marks house.
They found the doors locked and the
blinds all down. A window was forced
and entering the small sitting room
they saw Mr. Marks lying on the floor
with his head and shoulders covered
with an overcoat. On removing the
' coat the men were horrified to discov-
er that the man had been brutally
murdered, and had evidently been
' dead for some time.
{ Dr. W. R. Heaton, of Philipsburg,
' coroner of Centre county, was prompt-
' ly notified of the crime and a message
{was also sent to district attorney
{ James C. Furst, and the state police
of Bellefonte. The latter hurried to
the scene of the crime and kept the
crowd away until the arrival of the
coroner in the afternoon. A jury was
tion made of the body. It was found
blows with some heavy instrument or
a club, one on the upper portion of the
back of the head, one on the right
temple and one over the right ear,
each one causing a fracture of the
skull. All indications showed that the
crime had been committed in the
kitchen and the body dragged into the
Robbery was undoubtedly the cause
of the murder. At the inquest John
ly carried five hundred dollars or more’
in paper money in his pocket. The
money was generally wrapped in a
piece of paper and tied with a string.
The paper and string were found in
one of the pockets of the dead man’s
. clothing but no money. He also had
two pocketbooks and sixteen cents in
change was all that was found in
‘ them, although he generally carried
! considerable small change with him.
The coroner’s jury returned a ver-
‘dict in effect that the man met his
‘death by being struck on the head
“with some blunt instrument in the
hands of some unknown person or per-
i sons. While Mr. Marks lived alone
| he had many friends in that part of
| Bald Eagle valley and his brutal mur-
der has caused considerable excite-
ment among the people in that section.
The body was buried on Sunday.
So far the state police at work on
the case have failed to find a single
clue that would lead to the identifi-
cation of the murderers. The very
fact that robbery was the cause would
indicate that the deed had been com-
mitted by some one who knew the hab-
it of Mr. Marks in carrying such a
by the investigation.

eran of the Civil war, having served
four years in Company E, 45th regi-
ment, and had a splendid record. In
recent years it was his great delight
to attend the regimental reunions and
meet his old comrades in arms.
American Lime & Stone Co. to Mine
Quite a number of Bellefonte people
were considerably startled at half
past one o’clock on Sunday morning
by hearing some six or eight heavy
blasts out at the American Lime and
Stone company operations and natur-
ally wondered the reason therefore,
inasmuch as it is generally known
that most of the limestone industries
in this section are virtually at a stand-
But it now develops that the com-
pany above named has a force of men,
about twenty-five all told, working
day and night against the time when
there will be a revival in the lime bus-
iness, and their activity is being spent
in the direction of preparing a slope
so as to mine the stone and take it
out underground instead of removing
it by the old quarrying method. The
operation is at the No. 2 mine on the
old Alexander farm, where to get at
the stone by the quarrying method it
would be necessary to remove one hun-
dred feet or more of dirt and stone.
To obviate this a drift some eight feet
high and twenty feet wide will be dug
in the hill a distance now estimated at
about 380 feet to tap the best portion
of the limestone vein. This drift will
be on an incline so that the stone can
be hauled out by small cars to the top
of the incline. There the stone will
be dumped into bucket conveyors and
hauled over the meadow to feed the
kilns at the big hydrating plant. In-
asmuch as the men are working on this
operation night and day, in three
eight hour shifts, blasting may be
heard at any time without meaning
anything unusual.

Reynolds — Quigley. — Captain W.
Frederick Reynolds and Miss Mary
Shaw Quigley, of Bellefonte, were
married in Cumberland, Md., last Fri-
day evening, and the first definite
knowledge the parents of the two
young people had of their marriage
was when they received telegrams
about eleven o’clock Friday night tell-
ing of the happy event. The bride is
the youngest daughter of Judge and
Mrs. Henry C. Quigley and the bride-
groom the eldest son of Col. and Mrs.
W. Fred Reynolds.
The young people left Bellefonte
about one o’clock Friday aftenoon os-
tensibly to attend an afternoon dance
in Lock Haven but instead motored to
Cumberland, Md., where the marriage
ceremony was performed. They re-
turned home about 7:30 o’clock on
Sunday evening and naturally have
been busy ever since receiving the con-
gratulations of their many friends.
The bride was educated in the pub-
lic schools of Bellefonte and at Kent
Place, New Jersey, but spent the past

' Forty Crippled Children Made Happy
: by Assurances of Relief.
Forty crippled children were given
‘a thorough examination and recom-
! mendations for their cure or comfort
offered by Dr. George B. Stull, a well
, known surgeon of Harrisburg, at the
‘ special clinic held last Saturday under
the auspices of the State College Red
Cross Chapter, at the Glenn sanitor-
ium, State College.
Joy was brought to more than one
- little tot, who, up to this time, had
| suffered needlessly though inability to
secure the best of attention, and many
parents are thankful that the Red
Cross service section headed by Miss
Helen K. Shipps, the executive secre-
tary, was instrumental in securing the
services of Dr. Stull.
Operations were recommended def-
initely in nine cases. Five of these
. will be cared for by Dr. Stull, in Har-
risburg, two can be performed at the
Bellefonte hospital, and in two cases
Dr. Stull recommended that the pa-
tients be sent to Dr. Rugh, a bone
specialist at the Methodist hospital in
Philadelphia. One other spinal case
may be accommodated at the North
American sanitorium in New Jersey.
Arrangements were made for X-ray
examinations in two cases, and in one
case an X-ray photo was taken imme-
diately so that Dr. Stull might be able
to give an immediate diagnosis. One
boy was referred to a Philadelphia
eye specialist and another to a throat
specialist. A definite medical follow-
up was recommended in nine cases,
and placement in training schools in
two. In ten out of the forty no treat-
ment was recommended. Five cases
are corrective with braces only, and
measurements were taken by a repre-
sentative of a brace manufacturing
company in Harrisburg:
Fourteen of the children came from
the jurisdiction of the Bellefonte Red
Cross Chapter, and twenty-six from
the State College territory. The fol-
low-up care, hospital arrangements
and treatment will be under the direc-
tion of Miss Shipps and the two Chap-
ter nurses.
The clinic was observed by seven
physicians, including Drs. Locke and
Seibert, of Bellefonte, and Dr. Year-
ick, of Centre Hall. Dr. Kurtz, of
Howard, sent in three cases. Mrs.
Jones, the State College nurse, and
Miss Royer, the Bellefonte nurse, at-
tended the clinic and assisted in pre-
paring the children for examination.
Mrs. J. Ben Hill, the Chapter chair-
man, and Mrs. R. I. Weber, assisted
in handling the children.
The operating room was used for
the clinic and two operating tables
kept busy as the surgeon went from |
one to the other to make the exam-!
inations. Dr. and Mrs. Stull drove up
from Harrisburg and stayed over in
State College until Sunday morning.
The Red Cross feels greatly indebted
to Dr. Stull for his generosity in giv-
ing his time and service. His atti-
tude toward the work is particularly |
fine, officials say, and he is apparently
well satisfied if he can be instrumental
normal condition. It is possible that
“another clinic may be planned for the
early fall.

{Had Mrs. Charles Martin, of Belle-
tol, one evening last week, they
wouldn’t have lost their money and
jewelry. According to a dispatch
from Harrisburg when Mrs. Martin,
who was visiting in Harrisburg, and
Mrs. Swank prepared for their dip in
the Susquehanna they put their cloth-
ing, money, jewelry and railroad pass-
es in a suitcase and hid the latter in
the bushes on the bank of the river.
While they were disporting among the
little fishes some naughty person stole
their money, jewelry and railroad
passes. The “villain” must have been
a man because he didn’t take the la-
dies’ clothes.
Many Teachers Enrolled at Penn State
Indications are that the enrollment
for the twelfth summer session for
teachers at The Pennsylvania State
College will break all records when
registration is held there next Mon-
day. The advanced mail registration
is the largest ever experienced, and
an attendance of over 1500 is expect-
ed. Dr. E. R. Smith, director of the
summer session, has returned from a
year’s absence spent at the University
of Illinois, and relieved J. O. Knauss,
who has been acting director since the
close of the last summer school. A
feature of this year will be the unus-
ually large attendance of men, partic-
ularly from the regular four year col-
lege courses.
