J. H. Harvey,
An Appeal from the Boy Scouts.
There are now twenty-four boys in
the Scout troop started not long ago
in the Episcopal church. We have our
meetings every Friday night at seven
o’clock, when we talk on different sub-
jects, about the American flag and
knots every Scout should know.
The tenderfoot test which has to be
passed before you become a Scout will
take place March 10th. Some of the
things required in this test are: He
must know the scout laws, motto,
sign, salute and significance of the
badge. Composition and history of
the national flag and the customary
forms of respect due it; and how to
tie the nine different knots required.
We have been getting along very
well and hope we get the Scouts or-
ganized in Bellefonte for good.
We think that the business men of
this town could help us and our
friends who have started it for us.
Every boy wants to earn money for
uniform and equipment, so if anybody
has odd jobs to do call Rev. Maynard,
Bell phone 306, or at the Bush house,
and we will try to help you. This is
what we call a help in trying to start
the Scouts.
‘The Scout movement is what makes
a boy a real man. We hope that the
ople will be interested enough to
start several other troops in the town
of Bellefonte. Look in the papers for
more about our troop next week.

Geiss, Donald Mallory, Carl Gray.

of William Henry Beck, at his home
at Snydertown. He had been in his
usual good health up to midnight on
Tuesday when he complained. of not
feeling well. A physician was sum-
moned who was able to give relief.
At noon on Wednesday Mr. Beck had
a sinking spell but soon recovered. At
4:30 p. m. he suddenly and unexpect-
edly passed away, witheut any suffer-
ing and apparently not realizing that
the end of life had come, being con-
scious to the last. Miss Lulu Gloss-
ner, a trained nurse of Jacksonville,
had been summoned at noon time but
did not reach the Beck home until
after Mr. Beck had passed away. The
attending physician stated that death
had been caused by cardiac asthma.
Mr. Beck’s parents were Henry and
Annaliza Beck and he was born in the
original log house built by his ances-
tors across the road from his present
home on September 2nd, 1857, hence
was 64 years, 5 months and 20 days
old. As a young man he joined the
Reformed church at Hublersburg but
later helped to haul the lumber to
build the Lutheran church at Snyder-
town and became one of the original
members, being a trustee for many
years. His first wife was Elvira Mor-
ris, of Ohio, who passed away years
ago, as did also a young son. His sec-
ond wife was Miss Clara Snyder, of
Romolo, who survives with a daugh-
ter and son, Margaret and William. He
also leaves one brother and a sister,
M. L. Beck, of Howard, and Mrs. Em-
ma C. Decker, of Stroudsburg.
The funeral services, held at the
home on Saturday afternoon at two
o'clock, were largely attended. They
were in charge of Rev. W. J. Shultz,
a former pastor of Snydertown, who
was assisted by Rev. Dingman, of
Clearfield. Members of the family,
through the columns of the “Watch-
man,” wish to thank all those who so
kindly assisted them during their be-
reavement, with the assurance that
their services were greatly appreciat-

| Student Bootlegger Given Salty Sen-
Adam A. Baweic, of Nanticoke, Pa.,
a graduate student of State College,
pleaded guilty to the charge of boot-
legging before Judge Quigley last
Friday and was sentenced to pay a
fine of $500 and undergo imprison-
ment in the Centre county jail for a
period of six months.
Baweic was arrested on January
27th by the state police at State Col-
lege just as he stepped off the bus
which conveyed him from Lemont to
State College. He carried a black
handbag which the police investigated
and in which they found three quart
bottles of whiskey. The young man
was brought to Bellefonte and in due
time was given a hearing before
Squire ‘Keichline who held him under
one thousand dollars bail for his ap-
pearance at court. As stated above,
he appeared before the court last Fri-
day afternoon and entered a plea of
Baweic’s attorney told the court
that while he was technically guilty
under the law there were extenuat-
ing circumstances that, ought to count
in his favor. He is one of a family of
eight children and his boyhood days
were spent around the mines, his fath-
er being a miner. Not content with
his lot he decided to get an education
and worked his way through State
College, graduating last June. He
went home and it was some months
before he landed a job. Then in the
latter part of January he decided to
return to the College for a visit and
attend a dance. The young man, it
was alleged, does not drink himself,
and the liquor he had with him had
been brought to the College at the so-
licitation of friends there and not
with a view of bootlegging it broad-
cast. The above story was uncontra-
dicted, but it didn’t mitigate the fact
that under the law Baweic was guilty
of the crime charged, and the court
sentenced him as above stated.
The three bottles of whiskey taken
from Baweic’s handbag were taken
into court by the police and offered in
evidence against him. After the case
had been disposed of the court author-
ized the state police to keep one bot-
tle and have it analyzed, and further
ordered the other two to be destroyed.
They were forthwith taken to the
prothonotary’s office and in the pres-
ence of duly accredited witnesses
emptied into the wash bowl and
the whiskey, or whatever it was, is
now well on its way down the Sus-
:{'quehanna river. ‘

William Jennings Bryan to Speak at
State College.
Centre county is to have another
opportunity to hear William Jennings
Bryan. He is to speak at State Col-
lege on the evening of March 15th.
Not everybody is convinced that he is
a great statesman, but all agree that
he is a great orator. His tongue has
lost none of the persuasive eloquence
that has dominated a great political
party, swayed conventions and nomi-
nated Presidents ever since 1896,
when he was known as “The Boy Ora-
tor of the Platte.”
When Mr. Bryan was at State Col-
lege last year his subject was: “Ev-
olution,” and he combatted the Dar-
winian theory in eloquent, if not con-
vincing, words. Of course many of
his audience did not fully agree with
his position, but that did not prevent
them from appreciating his remarka-
ble gifts as an orator. This time his
subject will be: “The Fascinating
Game of Politics.” Surely no man is
better qualified to speak on that topic
than Mr. Bryan. ‘He has played hide-
and-seek with the presidéntial nom-
ination for more than twenty years,
and always is to be found in the thick
of every political and ethical contro-
versy. His political reminiscences
and his interpretation of modern ten-
dencies in politics, national and inter-
national, ought to make this speech
rival his famous “Cross of Gold and
Crown of Thorns” speech, when he
was first nominated for the Presiden-

It is expected that the conference
at Lewisburg will be one of the most
important held in a good many years.
One vital question will be the union
of the Evangelical Association with
the United Evangelical church, re-
uniting the two factions of this old
religious organization. It will be re-
called that there was a break in the
church about thirty years ago and it
looks now as if all differences have
been forgotten and the two factions
will again unite under one church ban-
ner. The Eastern Pennsylvania con-
ference, in session at Reading last
week, acted favorably upon the union
and it is believed that the conference
at Lewisburg will take similar action.
Bishop W. F. Heil is the presiding
officer of the conference and Bishop
M. T. Maze, of Le Mars, Ia., will take
an important part in the convocation.
The conference district covers
Pennsylvania, Maryland, District of
Columbia and Virginia, being the
largest of that church in the country.
It has 135 ministers and 118 lay del-
egates, and represents a communicant
membership of 27,727 and a Sunday
school enrollment of 42,024.
The selection of Lewisburg as the
place of holding the sessions is an ex-
ceptionally fortunate one. The $250,-
000 home of that church is located
along the Susquehanna river, a few
miles north of Lewisburg, and much
of the important early history of the
church was made in New Berlin, also
in Union county.

Big Interest in Economy.

Pennsylvania, paying one-tenth of
the country’s personal income tax and
almost one-tenth of the Nation’s cor-
poration income tax, is proportionate-

Smaller States contributing less may
