will be worth seeing.
——The sensation of the Red Men’s
parade in this place on Wednesday
was Wetzler’s band of Milesburg. We
announced several weeks ago that the
band was soliciting funds with which
to purchase new uniforms and while
the public was probably prepared to
see the organization in them we don’t
think any one anticipated such a re-
splendent appearance. A band is es-
sentially a gala day institution and al-
ways we have thought that its uni-
form as well as its music should con-
tribute to such a spirit. Certainly the
Wetzler band must have had the same
idea, for the new uniforms leave noth-
ing to be desired in the way of effect-.
ing a dashing appearance.
ONE KILLED, TWO INJURED.
Furman Lyons Victim of “Premature
Explosion in Stone Quarries.
Furman Lyons met instant death
in a premature explosion of a pop shot
at the Miller quarries of the Ameri-
can Lime and Stone Co., located east
of Bellefonte along the Jacksonville
road, about eight o’clock on Tuesday
morning. A pop shot is what is used
to blow large stone to pieces so the
men in the quarry can handle them.
Mr. Lyons had been doing this kind of
work for months and was one of the
most reliable men ~» the job. Tues-
day morning a hole had been drilled
in a large stone and he was
stooping over it tamping in the load
when for some unaccountable reason
the shot went of and he the full
force of the explosion. The upper
portion of his body was almost blown
to pieces. A dozen or more men were
standing nearby at the time, but for-
tunately only two were injured. Ed-
ward Sunday sustained a number of
bad cuts and was rushed to the Belle-
fone hospital as quickly as possible.
While his injuries are rather serious
and painful they are not considered
few minor cuts but after having his
injuries attended to by a physician he
went to his home. A. G. Morris Jr.,
was standing on a ledge of rock just
above where the explosion occurred
and he escaped without a scratch.
Furman Lyons, the unfortunate vie-
tim, was a son of William (deceased)
and Malissa Shultz Lyons and was
born near Curtin on February 7th,
1896, hence was 26 years, 3 months
and 2 days old. He served with the
A. E. F. during the world war, being
a member of the infantry in the 42nd
division. He was married just about
a year ago to Miss Grace Lucas, of
Curtin, who survives. He also leaves
his mother and the following broth-
ers and sisters: Clarence Lyons, of
Curtin; Charles, of Zion; Mrs. Cath-
erine McGinley and Lehman, of Pitts-
burgh; Mrs. C. Dunklebarger, of
Bellefonte; Nellie, Lilah, Thelma,
Ruth and Peter, at home.
Rev. Mackey had charge of the fun-
eral services at the house, which were
held at two o’clock yesterday after-
noon, while Rev. W. P. Ard officiated
at the interment in the Curtin ceme-
tery where the Brooks-Doll Post of
the American Legion was in charge.
Moonshiners, Stills and Moonshine
Disposed of by Court.
Monday was moonshine day in the
Centre county court, and two men,
Peter Lose and August Zuranda, each
drew sentences of $500 fine and six
month’s imprisonment in the county
jail. Both men are from Edendale, in
Rush township, and two stills, two
jugs and five quart bottles of moon-
shine were exhibited in court as .evi-
denice against the men. Both, of course,
plead guilty. August Zuranda told
the court that he started making moon-
shine because of the serious illness of
his wife who needed a stimulant. His
wife died on April 24th, but Zuranda
also admitted that he had sold some
because he had no work and needed
Garfield Bolich, also of Rush town-
ship, plead guilty to having liquor in
his possession and was placed on pa-
role for one year.
Clarence Gross, of State College,
plead guilty to the larceny of clothing
from the Garner merchant tailoring
establishment at State College and
was sent to the Huntingdon reforma-
Before adjournment the court in-
structed the district attorney to empty
the moonshine into the sewer in the
presence of witnesses and destroy the
stills, consequently the illicit liquor
was taken to the prothonotary’s office
and emptied into the wash bowl, trick-
ling from there into the sewer and
running thence into Spring creek.
“Listen to Me.”
Le Compte and Flesher’s musical
‘| comedy, presented at Garman’s thea-
tre, Monday evening, was unusual in
many ways. For a road company
playing one night stands like Belle-
fonte almost it was in a class by itself.
It had stage settings worthy of big
city productions. It had two people
who sang well, in Maude Baxter and
Ross Robertson. It had a chorus of
girls who were piquant and comely
and sensible enough not to hide their
natural charms with an over use of
lip sticks and paint brushes—and
among them was not the usual bel-
lowing, nasal, brazen dame that mars
nine out of ten choruses in the trav-
eling musical show.
The dancing of Barbara Bronell and
Leslie Joees was grace itself and the
comedy provided by Billy Murphy and
Billy Moore was clever as it was ap-
propriate to the nature of the play.
“Listen to Me” has probably had a
successful season. It is late going in
so it must have had. However that
may be it deserved success because,
as we have said above, it was an un-
usual show in point of settings, cos-
tuming, singing and acting.
Armenian Bundle Day.
Ransack your attic for Bundle day.
No contribution will be too bizarre or
old fashioned if it is capable of pro-
ducing warmth. Bellefonte’s Bundle
day will be during the last week of
May; the definite date and receiving
places will be announced later. In the
mean time keep this in mind and lay
aside anything that will help destitute
people living, many of them, in a cli-
mate where the winters are as severe
as in Canada.

Mother’s Day Service.

Jonn A. McSparran, Democratic
candidate for Governor, will visit
State College on Monday, May 22nd,
and speak in the open air theatre at

the meeting will be held in the audi-
torium. This will be an opportunity
to hear this intelligent gentleman dis-
cuss the issues of the campaign.
Sunday School Baseball League.
A Sunday school baseball league is
now being organized, and much en-
thusiasm is being manifested by the
young men of the various Sunday
schools in Bellefonte, all of which
have been invited to join in the sport.
A meeting of representatives of each
church will be held at the Y. M. C. A.
next Monday evening, May 15th, when
officers and a board of directors will
Leaves for Italy.
Robert Mercur, a student at Lehigh
University, and Fritz Mercur, a stu-
dent at the Harrisburg Academy, will
sail by the first available steamer for
Italy where their mother, Contessa
Grace Bocchi Bianchi is seriously ill.
Mrs. Henry M. Stine, of Har-
risburg, received a cablegram on
Saturday telling of the illness of her
sister, Contessa Bianchi, whose home is
in the Palazzo Pandolfini, Florence, It-
aly, and Robert Mercur arrived in this
city last evening, to arrange with his
brother for an immediate journey.
The above was taken from Tues-
day’s Harrisburg Evening News. Con-
tessa Bocchi Bianchi is well known in
Bellefonte as Miss Grace Houck.
Bellefonte Scout News.
At our meeting last Friday night
we had the compass test for those who
did not pass at the previous meeting.
Dr. Dale was unable to be present and
give his third talk on first aid. We
expect to have our suits to wear on
our next hike. The Scouts discussed
the question of going from house to
house to ask for odd jobs of work.
There was also some talk about ways
and means to earn money to go camp-
ing. A committee was appointed to
consider the question of an ice cream
and also having a stand at Hecla park
picnics. Another committee was ap-
pointed to frame a constitution for the
Troop. After the regular meeting the
officers held a conclave. eth ad

The Red Men’s Convention.
Surely the native American is fast
passing away, as was evidenced on
Tuesday and Wednesday of this week,
on the occasion of the Red Men’s con-
vention. The committee expected an
attendance of from three to four hun-
dred but less than one hundred from
the thirty-one tribes in the Central
Pennsylvania district showed up. But
those who came to the pow-wow had
a good time and doubtless enjoyed the
The meetings were held in the Belle-
fonte armory where burgess Walker
welcomed them to Bellefonte in a brief
address on Tuesday morning. Busi-
ness sessions were held Tuesday after-
noon and Wedneday morning. Offi-
cers were elected for the ensuing year
and Lock Haven was selected as the
place of meeting next year.
. The spectacular event was the pa-
rade on Wednesday afternoon. The
Bellefonte tribe, in war paint and
feathers, turned out in full force ac-
companied by their squaws. The pa-
rade was led by the L O. O. F. band,
of Bellefonte, while the division of
visiting delegates was headed by
Wetzler’s band, of Milesburg, resplend-
ent in their new uniforms. The con-
vention closed with a dance in the ar-
mory on Wednesday night.

Benton D. Tate Badly Injured in Fall
Benton D. Tate, the veteran line-
man of the Bell Telephone company
of Pennsylvania, was badly injured in
a fall from a ladder at the home of R.
D. Foreman, in Centre Hall, last
Thursday afternoon. He was engaged
in trimming out some trees which were
causing wire trouble when he sudden-
ly fell to the ground, a distance of fif-
teen feet or more. He was rendered
unconscious by the fall and was
brought to Bellefonte on the Lewis-
burg and Tyrone train and taken to
the Bellefonte hospital where an X-
ray examination disclosed the fact
that his collar bone was broken, one
rib fractured and another rib torn
loose. Indications also pointed to a
slight puncture of the lung, as well as
a number of severe bruises. Just how
he came to fall is uncertain, but it is
believed that he was partially over-
come with dizziness which caused him
to lose his hold on the ladder and tum-
ble to the ground.
While his condition is serious it is
not considered alarming. He has been
improving slowly this week but his
recovery will naturally take some
time. Mr. Tate is the oldest employee
of the telephone company in Belle-
fonte, and his many friends sympa-
thize with him in his unfortunate ac-
| a lasting memorial ?
Dedication of Soldiers’ Monument.
The committee in charge of the erec-
tion of the soldiers’ monument in
Milesburg anticipate having the me-
morial ready for the unveiling and
dedication in about two months, and
arrangements have already been start-
ed to make it an epochal event in the
history of that town. An Old Home
week is being planned but the exact
time has not yet been fixed for the
reason that the date will be arranged
to suit the convenience of one or more
soldiers of national repute whose
presence is very much desired on that
occasion. Chief among the number is
Gen. John J. Pershing, who is being
communicated with, and who, it is
hoped, will be able to attend.
The committee already has been as-
sured of the attendance of Governor
Sproul and his staff, Adjutant Gen-
eral Beary and his staff, a regiment
of cavalry, and other military units.
Of course the American Legion and
men who served in the world war will
be there. Arrangements have been
made for a motion picture outfit to
take pictures of the event, and a ra-
dio broadcasting station will be erect-
ed to transmit the speeches as well as
the music of the Boys’ band to a ra-
dius of eight hundred miles.
The monument, which has already
been described in these columns, will
contain the names of all the soldiers
from Milesburg and Boggs township
who served in any of the wars in
which this country engaged, from the
Revolution down to the world war.
That part of Centre county has al-
ways responded most liberally to any
call for patriotic service, whether it
was for soldiers on the battle field or
for money to assist in their equip-
ment and maintenance.
During the Spanish-American war
it was James McMonigal, of Miles-
burg, who cut the cable inthe harbor
of Cienfuegos, Cuba. Commander
James J. Lucas, of Bogg stownship,
was in charge of the U.S. cruiser
Santiago when it was blown up above
Sandy Hook in 1918 by a German sub-
marine, and was the last man to leave
the sinking ship. Then there was
Lieut. C. W. Smith, of Milesburg, who
refused to surrender to the Prussian
guards in the fighting at Chateau-
Thierry. These are notable instances
of the bravery of the boys who served
their country from that locality.
Is it any wonder that the people
want to perpetuate their gallantry in

Only once in a while do the resi-
dents of Bellefonte have the opportu-
nity that will be theirs on the 18th
and 19th of May at the opera house.
At that time all the best musical and
‘| humorous talent of the Bellefonte
Academy and some additional star tal-
ent will present the musical treat of
the season at their annual minstrel
Eevery effort will be made to excel
all previous performances. The or-
chestrations are of the best and John-
son and Campbell, the noted artists
on the piano, xylophone and saxo-
phone, will startle the audience with
their musical manipulations. The
prize quartettes, who claim to be fresh
from audiences before the Crown
Princes of Europe, will render their
entrancing melody to a peace-pursu-
ing audience with wondrous effect.
Eight clever end men will be sup-
ported by a fine male chorus of forty
voices, well trained and in perfect
harmony. In addition to the unusually
fine program will be added the at-
traction of a star dancer in clog and
fancy dances. This will be his first
appearance here and is sure to be a

Child Killed at Coleville.
A most” distressing accident occur-
red at Coleville about 2:30 o’clock on
Sunday afternoon when nine year old
Gilbert E. McMurtrie was caught un-
der the track of the Bellefonte Cen-
tral railroad turntable and crushed to
death. The turntable has always been
a favorite place for the boys of Cole-
ville to play, notwithstanding the fact
that they have been frequently cau-
tioned to stay away from it. On Sun-
day afternoon a number of boys went
to the turntable and were observed by
Sinickson Walker, an employee of the
company. He walked down toward
the boys but at the time they were
picking dandelions, so he went on his
Evidently tiring of picking the
golden blossoms the boys went to the
turntable and attempted to turn it
around. The McMurtrie boy tripped
and fell right in the way of the heavy
track, was caught between the track
and the concrete wall of the pit and
crushed to death. He was a son of
Edgar and Mary Bathurst McMurtrie
and was born at Coleville on Decem-
ber 27th, 1918, hence was 8 years, 4
months and 8 days old. In addition
to the bereaved parents nine brothers
and sisters survive, as follows: Boyd,
Harry, Ralph, Samuel, Ray, Florence,
Nina, Martha and Lawrence. Funeral
services were held on Wednesday and
burial made in the Union cemetery.

an eyesore to many for a long time,
has been removed.
The frequent complaints against
the outside toilets on A. C. Mingle’s
properties on W. Logan street will be
satisfied as Mr. Mingle very soon will
install inside toilets of an approved
sanitary type. Complaints against
two properties on E. Pike alley be-
longing to S. D. Ray, and against
properties in Beaver Row remain un-
satisfied, as also are the numerous
complaints against the piggeries.
It is difficult, almost impossible, for
a health officer to determine when a
Pig pen is in a sanitary condition and
the surest redress for these com-
plaints is to abolish pig pens from the
borough. This puts the matter up to
the council and complainants would
better see their own councilman and
ask that action be taken to remove
piggeries from the borough.
George Glenn, who is taking the
place of Elmer Yerger as health offi-
cer, has been following up all com-
plaints made to the secretary of the
Board of Health and, in several stub-
born cases, has given the offender five
days to clean up premises or be sub-
ject to fine or imprisonment. Let all
who are interested in seeing our town
in a sanitary condition support the
health officer in his commendable ef-
forts. * kk ok x
