Big Gathering to be Held at Hecla
Park Thursday, July 27th.
The Bellefonte hospital, which is in
reality a county institution as its list
of patients include more from the
county than from Bellefonte, is great-
ly in need of money. The institution
is crowded with patients with the re-
sult that its expenses of upkeep are
beyond the available revenues. To
help out the hospital authorities and
the public in general are going to hold
a big picnic at Hecla Park on Thurs-
day, July 27th. It is the purpose to
make it a county picnic and every
town and township in the county is
asked to contribute to its success.
While every arrangement has not
been completed the plans as mapped
out provide for one of the old-fash-
ioned gatherings where everybody had
a chance to enjoy themselves to the
limit. Efforts are now under way to
secure the Howard and Millheim base-
ball teams for a contest royal at that
time. These are the two leading
teams in the county and a game be-
tween them will be worth seeeing.
There will also be a full line of other
interesting sports, with boating, danc-
ing, ete. |
Wetzler’s famous Boy’s band have ,
volunteered to contribute their serv- |
ices free and the Odd Fellows band |
will likely follow suit, so that there
will be no dearth of music. Ernie |
Welle’s orchestra (or one equally as |
good) will be on hand all day to play!
for the dancing. There will be paddle |
wheels with baby dolls, blankets, ete. |
novelties and flappers, and many oth- |
er enticing things.
Many of the business men of Belle-
fonte have signified their willingness
to close for the day and it is quite
likely that all the stores and indus-
tries in the community will take a day
off and go to this picnic.
A number of eating stands will be
on the ground where everybody can
be supplied who do not care to pre-
pare a basket, but ail who wish to
take a basket with them are at per-
fect liberty to do so.
A committee of experienced men
will be on the grounds to look after
the parking of cars so as not to inter-
fere with the pleasures of the crowd.
Every section of Centre county has
had at one time or another some one
who derived benefit from the Belle-
fonte hospital, and for that reason
this picnic will be made a county af-
fair and every section should be rep-
resented. Watch for the big bills
and make your arrangements to be
there. Follov:ing is the list of com-

Business Men’s Picnic to be Big
According to the plans being map-
ped out for the annual picnic of the
Associated Business Men of Belle-
fonte on Thursday, August 17th, it
will be one of the biggest days at
Hecla park this summer. Two base-
ball games are being scheduled, one
in the morning and one in the after-
noon. The teams to play in the morn-
ing have not definitely been selected,
but they will be well matched and
picked for drawing purposes. The
afternoon game will be between the
Harrisburg and Williamsport P. R. R.
motive power teams. A big rivalry
exists between these nines and this
game will be a thriller.
The Odd Fellows band will be on
the ground all day and give a number
of concerts. A good orchestra will be
secured for the dancing afternoon
and evening. There will be boating
and a full program of sports.
Meals will be served on the ground
all day so there will be no occasion
for anybody going hungry. Make
your plans now to attend this picnic.

—Policeman George C. Glenn was
off duty four days last week as the
result of an abscess in his throat.
— Mrs. G. Ross Parker and fami-
ly have decided to leave Bellefonte
and take up their residence in New
Brunswick, N. J., where Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Keller are now located. They
were led to do this from the fact that
Mr. Keller has leased a ten room
house which will not only be sufficient
for the entire family but enable them
to accommodate two or more roomers.
Mrs. Parker shipped her household
goods on Tuesday and her daughter
Eleanor (Mrs. Keller) left Wednesday
for New Brunswick, but Mrs. Parker
and her other children will remain in
Bellefonte until their household
goods reach New Brunswick. Coinci-
dent with their leaving the Misses
Parker will move into the side of
their house occupied by Mrs. Parker
and Rev. Evans and family will move
from the Presbyterian Manse into
that portion of of the house hereto-
fore occupied by the Misses Parker.
——Dr. R. B. Tinsley, a well known
dentist of Altoona, has decided to
open an office in Bellefonte, having
leased rooms over Lyon & Co’s store,
on Allegheny street. Some remodel-
ing and repairing will be necessary to
put the rooms in order but this will be
done as soon as possible and when the
| work is completed the office will be
open for practice. Dr. Tinsley spent
several days in Bellefonte last week
and looked over the situation here,
consulting with several local den-
tists and it was only after he was
convinced that the field warranted
another practitioner that he decided to
open an office. Prior to taking up the
study of dentistry at the University
of Pittsburgh Dr. Tinsley spent sev-
eral ycars in the study of medicine at
Columbus, Ohio. Prior to her mar-
riage Dr. Tinzley’s wife was Miss
Ruth Wagner, of Bellefonte, and this
may have been one of the strong in-
ducements that helped him to decide
to locate here.
Allegheny Street Business Sites Sold.
J. O. Heverly, who purchased the
Curtin corner in the Diamond some
time ago has sold all but 69 feet of
his Allegheny street frontage. The
half of the brick building now occu-
pied by the Gazette office and Schad’s
plumbing establishment has been pur-
chased by C. M. Parrish for $5875.00.
T. H. Harter has bought the part of
the building now occupied by the Ga-
zette plant and Chas. H. Mensch has
bought a vacant strip of 25 feet sout
of it. The combined price being
It is Mr. Heverly’s intention to sell
the rest of the Allegheny street front-
age up to within 25 feet of the cor-
ner. He will reserve the corner for
himself and intends then to run his
own store back along High street 62
feet thus taking up the offices now
occupied by the Dales and J. K. John-
ston as law offices.
A Quiet Fourth in Bellefonte.
The Fourth of July was unusually
quiet in Bellefonte. The threatening
weather had a dampening effect on all
those hilariously inclined but when
the Odd Fellows band began to play
on the Diamond shortly before nine
o’clock it put life into the young peo-
ple and there was a general exodus
for Hecla park to attend the Logan
no rain fell during the day and the
picnic drew a large crowd. A number
of people journeyed to State College
to see the demonstration there which
marked the end of their four day’s old
home celebration.
In the evening the Odd Fellows
band gave a concert on east Curtin
street, and the citizens of that locali-
ty also put off quite an elaborate dis-
play of fireworks. On their way home
from State College Wetzler’'s Boys
band, of Milesburg, stopped in Belle-
fonte and gave a concert on the new
porch at the Elks home. No serious
accidents occurred to mar the pleas-
ure of the day.
Naginey Furniture Store and Under-
taking Establishment Sold.
The Frank E. Naginey furniture
store and undertaking establishment
on Allegheny street has been sold to
A. O. Biddle, of Schuylkill Haven, who
took charge on July 3rd. While the
sale was actually made the latter part
of May announcement of the fact was
deferred until the new owner came to
Bellefonte to take charge. The sale
does not incluude the building, only
the stock and good will of the busi-
Mr. Naginey came to Bellefonte
thirty-six years ago and embarked in
the furniture business, later engaging
in the undertaking business, so that
his store is firmly established in
Bellefonte and community. Mr. Bid-
dle, the new proprietor, has had
twenty years experience in the furni-
ture business and also as an under-
taker, and comes to Bellefonte with
the best recommendations. He is
married and has one child. He moved
his household goods and family here
on July 8rd and is now occupying the
apartment on Bishop street recently
vacated by Mr. and Mrs. Paul Me-
Garvey when they moved into their
new home on Curtin street.
Mr. Naginey’s sale of his store does
not mean that he intends to leave
Bellefonte, but simply that after thir-
ty-six years in the business he decided
to get out and devote his time to his
other business interests. It will also
enable him to take life a little easier
in the future.
Demonstration Day for Bellefonte
This coming Saturday (July 15th),
| the Bellefonte Playgrounds Associa-
tion will give an exhibition of the ac-
tivities of the children from 2 to 5:30
p. m. Under the efficient manage-
ment of Mrs. Krader and Mr. Aplin,
assisted by a fine corps of young la-
dies, great progress has been made in
supervised play, and those who have
visited the High school grounds have
been profuse in their praise of the
equipment of the supervisors. The
giant stride, six large swings, four
small swings, four see-saws, two
slides (of 20 and 14 feet respective-
ly), shoot the shute, sand box, volley-
ball, hand tennis court and play-
grounds baseball diamond, have all
been greatly appreciated and will be
seen to advantage on Saturday after-
noon. There will also be an exhibit
of industrial work done by the chil-
dren. The playgrounds equipment
will be left on the grounds Saturday
use of the young people of the town.
A canvass of the town will be made
on Monday next for membership in
the Playgrounds Association at one
dollar per membership. Those con-
tributing one dollar or more, will be
given a window card attesting their
interest in wholesome play-life, under
expert supervision, for the children
of the town. In supporting this en-
terprise, which a prominent business
man said was “the best investment
the Bellefonte business men had made
for the town,” you will be keeping
our beautiful borough in the front
line with other progressive towns of
the nation, and will do something
most practical to safeguard the youth
of today and conserve them for the
finest type of citizenship for the years
to come. Have your dollar ready
when the canvassers call on Monday
afternoon and if, for any reason you
are missed in the canvass, mail your
dollar to the secretary, Rev. David R.
Evans, or to the treasurer, Louis
Schad, and credit will be given. The
Association hopes to be able to open
the Bishop street playground before
the end of this month, provided the
money from the canvass will warrant
the venture.

Y. M. C. A. Boys to Go Camping.
On Wednesday, July 19th, a party
of about twenty-five boys will leave
for the camp which is being conduct-
ed by the local Y. for the boys of
Bellefonte. Mr. Aplin, the secretary,
will be in charge of the camp and will
be assisted by the physical director,
H. I. Mentzer, and Mr. John Payne,
chairman of the Boy’s Work commit-
tee. The location selected is at Long
| Reach on Spring creek, considered by
those who know the best camping
site in the district. Good stretch of
water for swimming and boating, a
high and dry place to pitch the tents,
a plentiful supply of pure spring wa-
ter and plenty of places to climb and
hike to from the camp.
An experienced camp cook has
been engaged who will have the heavy
task of providing three meals every
day. Regular camp routine and dis-
cipline will be established, the boys
being divided off into groups under
the leadership of older boys. Camp-
fires, songs and stunts will occupy the
evenings until it is time to turn in for
the night.
The secretary has had the exper-
ience of conducting thirteen camps in
different parts of the country and is
well qualified to take charge of the
boys and give them the benefit of his
experience in camping for boys. The
camp is open for boys not members of
the "Association as well as for the
members. The price charged the
boys is five dollars for the ten days.
The board of directors are anxious to
have the local boys avail themselves
of this outing under good leadership,
and are backing the camp financially.
A number of friends have assisted by
loaning tents and boats for the use of
the boys. Call up the secretary or
call at the office to get further infor-
mation about it. There is room for a
few more boys.
Some Summer Changes.

the apartment the Aplin family have
been occupying in the Shoemaker
Sunday School Baseball Leagne.
