New Schedule for Occupation As-
This is the year for the regular tri-
ennial assessment, which includes the
fixing of a valuation on real estate
for taxable purposes. The county
commissioners, who have the right
under the law to fix the valuation on
various occupations for taxable pur-
poses, have prepared a list which has
been given to each assessor in the
county, and it will be the duty of the
assessors to make return of the occu-
pation of every voter in the county,
male and female, according to the list
provided for that purpose. The
“Watchman” herewith publishes the
list in full and by carefully reading
the same you will be able to see just

State College Man Wins Big Verdict
in Blair County Court.
In an action to recover damages for
injuries sustained in an automobile
accident a jury in the Blair county
court at Hollidaysburg, on Tuesday
morning awarded H. N. Musser, of
State College, a verdict of $2,300
against Sabatino Caucci, of South
Fork. =
The action was the result of a col-
lision on October 17th, 1920, between
a car driven by Caucci, at that time
a resident of Pemberton, and a ma-
chine owned and driven by C. A. Isen-
berg, of Boalsburg, in which Musser
was a passenger, the accident occur-
ring on the road from State College
to Tyrone. In his statement the
plaintiff set forth that the accident
was due to the negligent manner in
which Caucci operated his car, and
that he was on the wrong side of the
road. Musser’s statement was sub-
stantiated by Isenberg, the driver of
the car, Mrs. Margaret Bathurst, of
East Altoona, a passenger in the car,
and H. C. Claycomb, of Altoona, who
happened along immediately after the
As a result of the run-in Musser
claimed that he was thrown against
the windshield and his right wrist al-
most severed, the plaintiff having
been later taken to Altoona for
treatment at the Altoona hospital.
he was making an average of $240 a
month as a carpenter, but due to his
injuries he was totally incapacitated
for five months and since then only
able to earn about $100 per month on
account of his condition physically.
Isenberg and both Mr. and Mrs.
Bathurst had also brought suit for
damages but after the jury had
awarded Mr. Musser a verdict the de-
fendant agreed to allow the court to
award judgment in the other cases,
and Isenberg was awarded $600, Mr.
Bathurst $500 and Mrs. Bathurst
Another case heard in the same
court on Tuesday was an action of
James A. Fitzpatrick, of Milesburg,
against the Howard. Brick and Tile
company to recover $845 which he
150.007 £laimed was due him on salary. No
‘defer:se was offered and a verdict was
given for the full amount.
Two Men Get Aaway with Eighty
Bushels of Potatoes.
On Wednesday afternoon two men
in a big truck, who represented them-
selves as being potato buyers from
Altoona, went to the farm of Elmer
E. Swartz, on the back road from
Pleasant Gap to Zion and inquired if
he had any potatoes to sell. Now it
just happened that Mr. Swartz had a
lot of them and was considering the
‘ best way to get them to market. He
! told the men he had and showed them
the potatoes. An agreement was
reached as to the price but the men
wanted nice ones so they had to be

Armsby, a man of international rep-

away at his apartments at the Nitta-

morning, following an illness of five
weeks. Plans had been made to take
him South but from the beginning of
his illness his condition never im-
proved sufficiently to permit of the
He was a son of Lewis and Mary A.
Armsby and was born at Northbridge,
Mass., on September 21st, 1853, hence
had attained the age of 68 years and
28 days. He was educated at the
Worcester Polytechnic Institute,
graduating with the degree of B. S.
in 1871. He then took a course in
. Yale College, graduating with the de-

It was finally ar-
gree of Ph. B. in 1874. He did post
graduate work at Leipzig, Germany,
in 1876, and at Yale, receiving the de-
gree of Ph.D. in 1879. He was also
awarded the honorary degree of
LL. D. by the University of Wiscon-
sin in 1904.
But his life up to that time was not
devoted exclusively to study and re-
search work as he was assistant in
chemistry at the Worcester Polytech-
nic: Institute in 1871-1872; teacher of
natural science in the High school
at Fitchburg, Mass., 1874-1875; as-
sistant in chemistry at Rutgers Col-
lege, 1876-1877; chemist at the Con-
necticut agricultural experiment sta-
tion, 1877-1881; vice president of the
Connecticut ~~ Agricultural College,
1881-1883; professor of agricultural
chemistry in the University of Wis-
consin, and associate director of the
experiment station, 1883-1887, coming
from there to State College to become
director of the agricultural experi-
ment station, a position he held for
twenty years. It was while serving
in that capacity that he embarked up-
on his course of research work in ani-
mal nutrition which brought him into
international prominence. He design-
ed and had constructed under his di-
rection a respiration colorimeter at
the experiment station at the College
for the purpose of testing out the nu-
trient values -of various foodstuffs on !
animals, the first of its kind in the |
world, and which brought to him rec-
ognition not only from the United
States government but from Euro-
pean countries. In 1908 he resigned
his position as director of the exper-
iment station to devote his time ex-
clusively to research and was placed
in charge of the department just then
established and known as the Insti- |
tute of Animal Nutrition, a position
he held until his death. His work in
this line was recognized all over the
country and he was frequently called
upon for special work by the United
States Department of Agriculture.
Dr. Armsby was chairman of the
committee on co-operative experiment
station exhibits at the World’s Colum-
bian Exposition at Chicago in 1893,
and also a member of the committee
on dairy tests at the same exposition.
He officiated in like capacities at the |
Paris Exposition in 1900. He has
been expert in animal nutrition in the
United States Department of Agri-
culture since 1898; was a fellow of
the American Association for the Ad-
vancement of Science; American
Chemical Society; American Physio-
logical Society; American Society of
Biological Chemists; Society for the
Promotion of Agricultural Science
(of which he was president 1905-
1907), and of the Association of
American Agricultural Colleges and
Experiment Stations (of which he
was president 1898-1899). He was
author of Manual of Cattle Feeding
(1880); Principles of Animal Nutri-
tion (1903), and various scientific pa-
pers on the utilization of the poten-
tial energy of the food of domestic
Dr. Armsby was married on Octo-
1878, to Lucy Atwood
Harding, of Millbury, Mass., who sur-
vives with five sons, Charles, Ernest, '
Sidney, Henry and Edward. He was
,a member of the Congregational

vice of Mr. Noll he got into his car

“where but up to yesterday not a trace !
of the men, truck or potatoes was
discovered, and as it looks now Mr.

bushels of the best potatoes he had.

A Clerk Who Says Little but Does
’ Much.
The clerk of the British house of
commons is appointed by the prime
minister with a salary of £2,000 a
year. This fs a much bigger salary
than he received in the Eighteenth
century. In those days he lived chief-
ly on fees and presents from members
of parliament.
The clerk sits at the upper end of
the table of the house, and wears a
wig and gown. He has the custody of
records, signs certain addresses and
orders, and reads various documents
in the house. He controls the staff of
the house, and is responsible for many
details in the management of busi-
In addition, he is the speaker's
principal adviser, and that is why even
now speakers seldom make mistakes.
He is the great authority on proce-
dure and on all the complicated rules
of the house.
This official is usually silent and
uncbtrusive. The exception occurs
when a new speaker is elected.
His position has been described as
“the highest and most important of-
fi-jal post in the house, and one of
.the most respected in the civil service;
its occupancy has long been a person-
al distinction and the recognition of
eminent authority.
