Dr. Eloise Meek Further Describes
: Life in Alaska.
Akiak, Alaska, Feb. 1st, 1922.
Your lovely Christmas letters came
in the January mail, only about six
weeks getting here, a speedy coming,
but were picked up by a special mes-
senger and brought straight along so
were not hold up at some way-side
The rest of this household have gone
with a picnic party about eight miles
away, twenty people on seven dog-
teams. All were dressed in fur, most-
ly squirrel skins, from the top of the
head to their toes and, sitting on the
bottom of the sleds, were wrapped in
fur robes so they could not get old.
They expected to get into big timber,
there will build a wind-brake, (little
spruce trees or boughs stood along in
a row) and behind that a big fire up-
on which they can cook bacon, coffee,
and toast crullers while toasting their
toes. The moonlight is very beautiful
here just now and I know they will
have a nice time.
Your September letter asked me
about Nome. From what I saw Un-
ionville is a large place and a rip-
ping beauty as compared with it. The
only things of interest I could see
were the tall masts of the wireless.
Gulls were in dozens about the boats
looking for scraps of food; the day
was raw and cold with a wind blowing
directly into shore, hence we could not
get close nor were allowed to go
ashore as our boat would have been
pounded to pieces on the beach. The
million-dollar pier was cut off several
years ago by the Arctic ice moving in
shore and there is now no pier.
You could have had a reindeer to-
day had you been here as a herd of
twelve hundred going north to a new
feeding ground went up the trail, but
driving-deer are scarce and, as yet,
I have not copied Santa Claus, but am
hoping to have that thrill in the near
You want to know about the native.
Would to goodness they were prettier
to look at! Maybe then they would
attract me more! Imagine a very flat,
broad faced Indian with the eyes of
the Jap, color so dark that one thinks
of them as black, hair straight and.
by no chance, ever in order. This is
accounted for by the fact that they
wear their parka all the time, putting
the hood up when they go out, and,
pulling the parka off like “skinning
the cat,” it leaves them looking rath-
er tousled. Then only a chance one
will be clean and without cooties and
most have a disagreeable odor, due to
the use of seal oil. They are like
children, easily pleased and always
smiling. But such curiosity! Should
anything happen in the village such
hordes and hordes suddenly aagear
that one thinks they must spring from
the earth, but they are so like little’
gnomes, I am always interested in
watching them.
The other night there was a dance
across the river, being a beautiful
night, we all walked across. The
phonograph of one of the natives was
grinding out “Delilah” but there were
six men there so the three of us—Miss
Conley, nurse, Mrs. Bird, young, pret-
ty and twenty-four, and “yours tru-
ly” took off our parkas and, although
we all wore mukluks (skin boots),
went to dancing. It was then nine
o’clock and, about ten, a few more
wandered in; later some very pretty
half-breeds, girls and more white men
came. These “breed” girls dance well
and some have been educated in the
“States” but all revert when they get
back up here; as for morals— “hain’t
no such things.” The cabin in which
the dance was given, was tiny but had
a good floor and it was soon crowded,
hence we left soon. The rest would
dance until morning.
The men in the North country are
different from these. The races there
are very distinct and one never meets,
when out for an evening, a native man
or woman.
My gift for writing seems to have
left me as, upon re-reading this seems
a most uninteresting epistle so, with
many wishes for a happy birthday, 1
am going to sleep to the accompani-
ment of the Malumite chorus that is
just now going on.
——In the days when “Talk to
Ruger” was the slogan in Bellefonte
the motion picture industry was still
in swaddling clothes and the Scenic
was an experiment. But it has long
ago passed into the class of well es-
tablished picture shows and the pub-
lic is always assured of seeing the
best there is in movie land. If you're
not a Scenic regular, get the habit.
BURNSIDE.—William Burnside, a
representative of one of the oldest
families in Bellefonte, passed away
shortly after eleven o’clock on Satur-
day night at the home of his sister,
Mrs. H. C. Valentine, on west Curtin
street. He had not been in good
health for some time and during the
past year had lived at the Brocker-
hoff house. Last Thursday he com-
plained of not feeling as well as usual
and went out to his sister’s home to
spend a few days. About five o'clock
on Saturday evening he was suddenly
taken worse and sank rapidly until
the end. Angina pectoris was assign-
ed as the cause of death.
Mr. Burnside was a son of Thomas
and Rebecca Thomas Burnside and
was born in what was known as the
old Charles Houston home located
where the Edward Richard residence
now stands, on February 1st, 1859,
hence was 63 years, 3 months and 5
days old. He was educated in the pub-
lic schools of Bellefonte and at the
private school of Miss Petrikin. While
a youth the family moved to Ironton,
Wis., where they lived several years
then returned to Bellefonte. In 1883
Mr. Burnside accepted a position in
the office of the Fairbanks Scale com-
pany, at Pittsburgh, where he remain-
ed some eight or ten years. It was
while working there that he and sev-
eral other of the Fairbanks employees
decided to start a scale company of
their own and organized a company
under the name of the Standard Scale
and Supply company. They started
operations in a small building in
Pittsburgh where their first scales
were built. Through the intervention
of Mr. Burnside negotiations were
made with the old Valentine Iron com-
pany for the lease of their machine
shop at the old furnace plant south of
Bellefonte and the equipment was
moved here. The company built quite
a plant at the Bellefonte location and
while their business increased every
year they encountered various finan-
cial difficulties until about 1902 when
the Pittsburgh interests in the con-
cern forced a reorganization and a re-
moval of the plant from Bellefonte to
Beaver Falls.
Mr. Burnside then went with his
brother-inlaw, the late Harry C. Val-
entine, to Scotia and for a number of
years was engaged in the develop-
ment of the ore mines at that place.
When the Scotia mines were sold a
few years ago he settled permanently
in Bellefonte and engaged in the ma-
chinery brokerage business. He was
a life-long member of St. John’s Epis-
copal church, a member of the Belle-
fonte Lodge of Elks and an ardent
It might here be mentioned that Mr.
Burnside probably more than any oth-
er one individual was responsible for
the establishment of a Sunday train
over the Bald Eagle Valley railroad
by the Pennsylyania Railroad compa-
ny. During the early years of the
Scale and Supply company in Belle-
fonte the Pittsburgh members of the
company became dissatisfied because
of the fact that they couldn’t come to
Bellefonte for a week-end and get
home before Menday evening. Mr.
Burnside got busy and through his
own personal efforts was able to in-
terest such influences as to eventual-
ly have a Sunday train put on the
Bald Eagle road, and it has been run-
ning ever since.
He never married and his only im-
mediate survivors are his sister, Mrs.
H. C. Valentine, and one brother, Ed-
gar T. Burnside. Funeral services
were held at the Valentine home at
four o’clock on Tuesday afternoon by
Rev. M. DePui Maynard, and inter-
ment was made in the Union cem-
etery. |
KELLY.—Rev. Joseph Clark Kelly,
a retired minister of the Presbyterian
church, died or Friday at the home of
his nephew, “Dr. W. T. Graham, at
Sunbury as the result of general de-
bility, aged 84 years, 1 month and 5
days. He was a native of Juniata
county, and his early education was
received at Tuscarora Academy and
Jefferson college, at Canonsburg.
Later he studied at the Western The-
ological Seminary, at Allegheny, and
at Princeton, graduating in 1864. He
was licensed to preach the gospel by
the Huntingdon Presbytery in 1863
and was ordained in 1865. His pas-
toral charges were at Cambria and
Neevah, Wis.; Spruce Creek and Wil-
liamsburg, Pa. During the many
years he preached on the Spruce Creek
charge he lived at Baileyville and fre-
quently visited in Bellefonte and
preached in the Presbyterian church
here. From Spruce Creek he went to
Williamsburg, Blair county, where he
preached until his retirement a num-
ber of years ago. His wife preceded
him to the grave. Burial was made
at Williamsburg on Monday after-
noon. :
McMONISAL~James is, McMoni-
gal, one of the oldest residents of Bald
Eagle valley, died at his home at Han-
nah Furnace last Friday morning,
aged 91 years, 4 months and 17 days.
He had been quite feeble all winter
but his death was hastened by a fall
sustained two weeks ago. He was
born within two miles of the place
he died and his entire life was spent
in that locality. He was a member of
the United Brethren church for seven-
ty-two years. Surviving him are his
wife, one son and four daughters,
namely: Harry S. McMonigal, of
Branchville, S. C.; Mrs. Mary Swires,
of Bellwood; Mrs. G. W. Miller, of
Grazierville; Mrs. Gertrude Waite, of
Altoona, and Miss Allie, at home. He

penhaver, of Hannah. Burial was

a life-long resident of Bellefonte,
passed away at his home on Bishop’
street at six o'clock on Wednesday
evening. He had not enjoyed good
health for several years and about
five weeks ago suffered a stroke of
paralysis from which he never recov-
Mr. Derstine was a son of Michael
and Margaret Derstine and was born
in Bellefonte on July 4th, 1843, hence
was 78 years, 10 months and 6 days
old. As a young man he learned the
tailoring trade, an occupation he fol-
lowed all his life until compelled to re-
tire a few years ago on account of his
health. While never essaying to lead-
ership in the civic affairs of his home
town Mr. Derstine always lived the
part of a good and dependable citizen.
He was a charter member of the old
Logan Hose company and was on the
active roll for many years. He was
also a member of the old Bellefonte
band which upwards of fifty years ago
was considered one of the best music-
al organizations in the central part of
the State. He was also a member of
the Bellefonte Lodge of Odd Fellows
for fifty-one years. In politics he was
a Republican and a number of years
ago served two terms in borough coun-
cil. He was a life-long member of
the Reformed church and for many
years was active in all lines of church
In June, 1875, he married Miss Ma-
ry Klinger, who survives with two
sons, Frank, of Juniata, and Jesse, of
Ambridge, Pa. One son, Walter, pre-
ceded his father to the grave. He was
one of a family of six children and the
last to pass away.

for years and came here on a regular
trip on Friday, April 21st, stopping
at the Brockerhoff house. He was

tacks. A physician was called at
once but he failed to improve. His
wife was notified and she arrived in

possible but he continued to grow
worse and last week his children were

of Bellefonte toward her husband dur-
ing his illness and herself and chil-
dren in their bereavement.

I left my dad, his farm, his plow,
Because my calf became his cow.
I left my dad, I was wrong, of course
But my pet colt became his horse,
I left my dad to sow and reap
Because my lamb became his sheep.
I dropped my hoe and hit New York
Because my pig became his pork.
The garden truck I made to grow
Was his to sell and mine to hoe.
Believe me, too, I had to hoe,
There was no riding down the row.
With dad and me it’s half and half
The cow I own was once his calf.
I'm going to stick right where I am
Because my sheep was once his lamb.
I'll stay with dad. He gets my vote
Because my hog was once his shoat.
No town for me. I'll stick right here
For I'm the tractor engineer.
It’s even split with dad an’ me
In a profit sharing company.
We work together from day to day ~
Believe me, boys, it’s the only way.
Penn State to Observe 50th Oratoric-
al Contest.
The fiftieth anniversary of the Jun-
ior Oratorical contests at The Penn-
sylvania State College will be observ-
ed on May 26. Forty-one of the forty-
nine winners of this annual feature
of the college life are still living and
all have been invited to attend the
semi-centennial celebration. Judge
Ellis L. Orvis, of Bellefonte, who was
graduated from Penn State in 1876,
is the oldest living winner of the con-
test, and will preside at the anniver-
sary exercises. :
The Junior Oratorical Contest is
the oldest continuous institution at
Penn State with the exception of the
college itself. The first class was
graduated in 1861 and the contests
were started in 1874. Under the di-
rection of Professor Fred Lewis Pat-
tee, head of the English department,
the contests have thrived for more
than a quarter century, and it is due
to his efforts that the anniversary
plans are being formulated. All for-
mer winners of the contests who at-
tend the celebration will be asked to
act as judges for this year’s contest in
which seven members of the present
Junior class are entered. Milton W.
Lowry, of Scranton, and M. S. Me-
Dowell, director of the college agri-
cultural extension service, are former
winners of this traditional event.
