——Notwithstanding the fact that
the corn crop matured unusually ear-

been unusually favorable for husking

nice weather yet in which to clean up

——Home grown strawberries on

this office on Saturday from the gur-

men at the P. R. R. crossing on High

Francis Stoddard Simpson, of
Scranton, an organizer for the Penn-
sylvania division Sons of Veterans,
was in Bellefonte a few hours on
Wednesday looking up eligible mem-
bers for a camp at large to be known
as Camp No. 500. Inasmuch as Belle-
fonte has no regular camp he suc-
ceeded in getting in the neighborhood
of a dozen members for the camp at
large. The main purpose is to take
up the work of the G. A. R. in the
matter of the proper observance of
‘Memorial day, etc.
‘A Pronounced Success Despite the
Rain and Bad Weather. Many
Hundreds in Parade.
Despite the threatening weather
and periodic rainfalls the second an-
nual Hallowe’en carnival of the Belle-
fonte Lodge of Elks was pulled off on
Monday evening almost on schedule
, time, and while the rain undoubtedly
kept the residents of neighboring
! towns away, and kept some people out
{of line who might otherwise have
' gone in, it was a pronounced success
notwithstanding. While nobody, so
far as known, attempted a count of
the people in masked and comic cos-
tumes, a conservative estimate would
be from five to six hundred people,
and as practically all of them were
from Bellefonte and vicinity it was an
emphatic endorsement of the carnival
as a delightful way in which to cele-
brate Hallowe’en.
Additional interest was added to
this year’s carnival by the contest for
the Harvest Queen. This contest con-
tinued for five weeks and closed at
ten o’clock on Saturday night with
Miss Kathryn Bent as the winner.
The total vote cast was 71,645, divid-
ed between the five contestants as

Of course everybody was anxious to
see the Harvest Queen and her ladies
in waiting, the four other young la-
dies in the contest, especially as the
queen’s costume is valued at $800
and those of the ladies in waiting at
$500 each, but it was not this alone
that brought out the cowd. Rather
the inherent spirit of frolicsome fun
and good fellowship which is a dom-
inant characteristic of every man,
woman and child, and the desire to
celebrate Hallowe’en.
The parade formed and was made
up identical with the published pro-
gram in last week’s paper, and we
want to add right here that it is only
on rare occasions that three such good
bands of music are to be seen and
heard in any parade as those on Mon-
day evening. That old standby,
Wetzler’s band of Milesburg, headed
the first division with our own I. O.
O. F. band in top ’ats leading the
second and the Modern Woodmen
band of State College, resplendent in
natty uniforms, at the head of the
third division. The parade was al-
most a half hour late in starting and
had hardly gotten under way when it
began to rain. But it was no great
downpour and the paraders stuck in
line over the entire course and right
up to the finish.
To attempt to describe floats and
individual costumes would be a stu-
pendous task. In fact it just couldn’t
be done. In the float line that of the
Beatty Motor Co. won first prize be-
cause of its unique characer. It rep-
resented an old-fashioned barn floor
after harvest time with a square
dance in full swing. And it might be
added that the majority of the people
on the float were men and women
from the neighborhood of Pleasant
Gap. The Y. W. C. A. club had a very
creditable float while the Red Men
also deserve special mention. The
Spanish-American war veterans and
the American Legion were well rep-
resented. The individual costumes
were too numerous and varied to even
try to depict. In fact the judges had
a difficult task in making their selec-
tion of the prize winners, but they
evinced no partiality and made their
awards to those persons who, in their
judgment, were entitled to them.
Of course the rainy weather inter-
fered with the program after the pa-
rade to the end that there was no
block dancing on Bishop street and no
extended band concert. But all those
inclined to dance went to the armory
or the Logan fire company building,
where dancing continued until late in
the morning. Following is the list of

Autoists Run Over Cow.
A communication from the “Watch-
man’s” Stormstown correspondent
states that last Friday evening as
Herman Griffin was leading a cow
Stormstown, Frank Clemson Jr. and
John Hunter came racing along the
so badly that it had to be killed. For-
tunately the glove was pulled from
Mr. Griffin’s hand or he might have
been dragged with the animal and
met the same fate it did.
Verily it seems that the roads are
becoming almost as dangerous for pe-
destrians as a railroad track, and
people who drive cars cannot exer-
cise too much care for their own safe-
ty, as well as that of their fellow
Elmer E. Swartz’s Potatoes were not
published a story describing how two
men got away with eighty bushels of
potatoes from the farm of Elmer E.
Swartz, below Pleasant Gap, and now
it transpires that the men didn’t steal
the potatoes at all. The gist of the
story is that Mr. Swartz had sold his
potatoes to an Altoona dealer and the
two men and truck were sent to get
them. They were strangers in that
jority and when Mr. Swartz told
the straight road until they reached
the penitentiary grounds. There they
waited quite a while on Mr. Swartz
and as he did not appear they finally
continued on their way to Altoona
and delivered the potatoes to the
dealer, who in turn gave a check for
the payment of same to Mr. Swartz’s
son, living in Altoona, and he in due
time notified his father.

Hunting Season Ushered in by Tor-
rential Showers.
i The torrential showers of Monday
night and Tuesday had a rather damp-
ening effect on the small army of
hunters ready to take to the woods
for the opening of the hunting season
for all kinds of small game on Tues-
day morning, and many men stayed
at home who were literally aching to
get out into the woods. But there
, were others who put on a dare or die
' face and braved the elements just to
be among the first on the ground and
get their share of the game. But
most of them were doomed to disap-
pointment, as game of all kinds kept
pretty well under cover and natural-
ly the shooting was poor. In fact at
this writing very little game has been
reported. J. O. Heverly brought in a
wild turkey and he seems to have
drawn the prize of the day.
Of course this does not mean that
game is unusually scarce. It simply
, was not a good day for hunting. In
fact pheasants have been reported as
quite plentiful on the mountains,
while quite a number of wild turkeys
have been seen in their favorite
haunts. Rabbits are also plentiful but
squirrel are scarce. With the right
kind of weather the hunter who has
the patience to go on a hunt and stick
to it should be successful in getting
some game.
The “Watchman’s” Stormstown
correspondent sends in an account of
the first hunting accident of the sea-
son which occurred in the woods near
Stormstown about eight o’clock on
Tuesday morning, when Robert Hev-
erly, of 14th street, Tyrone, was shot
in the face and arm by Raymond Al-
len, of Scotia, as he was tying the
feet of a nice wild turkey he had just
killed. Allen explained the accident
by the fact that he saw the turkey
but did not see the man until after he
had shot at the turkey. Conductor
Ross, also of Tyrone, who was hunt-
ing with Mr. Heverly, had brought
down a turkey just before Heverly
shot his bird, and after the shooting
of the latter gentleman the two men
got into their car, intending to make
1a quick run to Tyrone where Mr. Hev-
i erly could receive the care and treat-
ment of his physician,
| Telephone Lineman Had Narrow
Boyd Kelly, of Loganton, a line-
‘man in the employ of the Commercial
‘Telephone company in Bellefonte,
‘miraculously escaped electrocution
yesterday morning but was shocked
so severely that he is now in the
' Bellefonte hospital for treatment and
it may be several days before the ex-
i tent of his injuries are known. Kel-
ily, who has been with the company
only two months was making some
repairs on the telephone line on north
| Water street and had climbed a pole
' just across from the Bellefonte silk
‘mill. In some way he came in contact
with one of the high voltage wires of
i the State-Centre Electric company,
carrying 2200 volts, but managed to
break the contact. In doing so, how-
ever, he lost his balance and fell a
distance of thirty feet to the street
below. Persons who saw him fall be-
lieved he would be killed as he started
head downward but the momentum of
‘his body was such that he turned and
lit on his back.
George A. Beezer saw him fall and
at once ran to his side. The ambu-
lance was summoned and he was tak-
en to the Bellefonte hospital. There
it was found that his hands and feet
were burned as a result of his contact
with the wire and his back and side
are badly bruised from his fall on the
thard street. Whether he is injured
| internally or not will not be known
| for a day or two. If not, his exter-
i nal injuries are not considered critic-
al. Mr. Kelly is married and his wife
‘at Loganton was promptly notified of
‘the accident and hastened to Belle-
Thieves Steal Team, Spring Wagon,
i Harness, Etc.
On Sunday night about eleven
| o'clock thieves entered the premises
{ of John White, who lives on one of
{the penitentiary farms at Rock
Forge, and stole a team of horses,
| double harness, covered spring wag-
i on, five bushels of potatoes and three
{ bushels of corn. They also detached
a brass buggy lamp irom the buggy
in the barn floor and took it. Mr.
White and family had driven to
{church on Sunday evening in the
| spring wagon and returning home had
| stabled the horses and run the spring
! wagon into the shed. Shortly before
i eleven o’clock Ralph Moyer, a neigh-
{ bor, passed the White home and no-
ticed the spring wagon standing out-
side the shed. He saw nothing else,
! however, but it is likely the thieves
{had just run the wagon out and then
{ hidden until he passed by.
| One of the horses stolen is a black
{ broncho mare, branded on the left hip
| with the letter U. The other is a bay
horse with a white right hind foot
‘and star in forehead. Any one see-
ling such a team should promptly no-
| tify the state police.

Edward Chaplin, of Karthaus, Victim
of Shooting Accident.
Edward Chaplin, 24 years old, died
at the Cottage State hospital, Phil-
ipsburg, on Monday afternoon as the
result of a bullet wound in his chest.
The shooting is claimed to be acci-
dental and occurred at Osceola Mills
on Sunday afternoon. Chaplin and
another young man, named Charles
Bordis, who lives near Osceola Mills,
were at a house near the old school
building examining a revolver. In
some way the weapon was discharged
while in the hands of Bordis, the bul-
let penetrating the upper part of
Chaplin’s chest.
The young man ran out onto the
state highway where he collapsed. He
was picked up by passing automobil-
ists and rushed to the Cottage State
hospital where he lingered in a semi-

Mrs. Theodore Lindquest, of
Axe Mann, is in the Bellefonte hos-
pital with a broken collar bone as the
result of an automobile accident last
Sunday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Lind-
quest were on their way to Bellefonte
last Sunday morning and at the Kel-
ley ice plant they undertook to pass
another car going in the same direc-
tion. As they pulled out to pass the
car Mr. Lindquest noticed two girls
walking along the state highway and
in order to avoid hitting them ran in-
to the guard rail alongside of the
road. Mrs. Lindquest was thrown
forward with such force as to break
her collar bone. She was promptly
taken to the hospital for treatment.
The car, a Cleveland Six, was dam-
aged considerably.

paid all the borough orders with in-

some borough orders that had been
drawing interest for 20 years, that
