Philanthropy and a Coincident.
Away back in the eighties, in Belle-
fonte, when all the boys were so old-
fashioned that they were willing to
work or run no end of errands for a
nickel, more often a penny! When
there were no movies, no ice cream
cones, no lolly pops to drain the pa-
rental purse, there was one who had
the special job, every week or so, of
carrying a missive to a young lady
who lived in a house some distance
from the centre of the town.
It was a wonderful job, for in those
days, asin these, a man splurges a lit-
tle where a lady is concerned, espe-
cially if it is an affaire du coeur, and
' this one paid a quarter for the safe
delivery of his missive. We were
never told whether this was such an
affair or merely a platonic friendship.
Be that as it may the quarter was all
the lad thought of until he reached
the gate of the home which was invar-
iably guarded by a big, black, woolly
dog. He was afraid of dogs and this
one in particular. Though it had never
attacked him, it looked so big and
woolly and ominous that that boy just
hadn’t the courage to venture through
the gate. We are told that he would
stand there for hours patiently wait-
ing for some larger person to come
out or go in so that he might have
safe conduct past the canine guard-
The home of the lady of the story
is now part of one of Bellefonte’s
greatest institutions. The lad who
carried the missives to her a third of
a century ago is proud of the fact
that he has helped a little each year
from its beginning to put that insti-
tution there, but he is prouder of the
gentleman who first sent him onto the
grounds where the Bellefonte hospital
now stands, for in his pocket nestles
a check for one thousand dollars bear-
ing the same signature that was on
those missives thirty-five years and
more ago, to be used in whatever way
it will do the most good for the hos-
This is the kind of philanthropy that
counts. Though yours might not be
fraught with the same coincidence it
will count for just as much if given
for the right work.
We're started now for the hospital
drive in October. The stage is set al-
ready. The front curtain’s up.
Whose thousand will be shining when
the next drop is raised? Let’s beat
the campaign managers to it. Let's
raise forty thousand before October.
Philipsburg Boy Drowned in Swim-
ming Pool.
John Houck, twelve year old son of
Mr. and Mrs. William Houck, of Ches-
ter Hill, near Philipsburg, was drown-
ed in the swimming pool of the Com-
munity League playgrounds in Phil-
ipsburg about one o’clock last Satur-
day afternoon. The boy was with a
number of companions in the pool
when suddenly he called for help. He
was taken out of the water and in a
few minutes declared he was all right
and went back into the pool. He sank
from sight almost immediately and it
was probably five minutes before the
body could be located and rescued
from the pool. Every means possible
were resorted to to restore life but
without avail. The boy had been ac-
customed to going into the pool and it
is generally believed that he had been
stricken with cramp or indigestion
which caused him to sink. The body
was buried in the Philipsburg ceme-
tery on Tuesday.

A Tribute to the Memory of the Late
Noah Corman. ~~ §
Chicago, Ill, August 5th, 1922.
To the bereaved of the late Noah
Corman, Esq., of Rebersburg, Pa.
The sad news has been communi-
cated to the writer of the passing
from life of our dear companion and
friend, Noah Corman Esq.
Seldom through life have we felt
more aggrieved and bereaved at the
loss of a dear one than we do now.
The departed was a personality great-
ly to be beloved by the thousands who
knew him best. In integrity and honor
he played the part of a true nobleman.
No one could accuse him of infidelity
since none ever found him wanting in
the higher aspects of true faithful-
ness to his fellow man.
While we, his host of friends, great-
ly deplore his departing, yet, we rec-
ognize that our loss is his eternal
gain and, that his going from among
us makes us realize more that life is
but a passing shadow and nothing but
eternity is abiding, which fact should
be the winning force to draw us near-
er to the Great Being whose magnan-
imous love for mankind has made
propitiation for us who believe in that
divine promise, eventually to meet our
departed brother in the blessed par-
adise above.
Therefore, let us take hope that all
is well with our departed friend, for
no doubt this day his spirit is repos-
ing in the embrace of Him Who said,
“Come unto me all ye that labor and
are heavy laden and I will give you
Let Rumor Become Fact.
From several sources we have heard
that G. W. Gamble contemplates pre- !
senting the island in Spring creek,
above this office, to the borough.
“What a beauty spot could be made
of it! With concrete retaining walls,
a bit of grading and landscape gard-
ening the present unsightly strip
could be transformed into a veritable
gem where benches could be placed,
boats for the young folks anchored
and, perhaps, bathing facilities pro-
The Civic club has often cast wist-
ful eyes at the island and we feel sure
it would heartily co-operate in any
movement to beautify it in a perma-
nent way if Mr. Gamble should con-
vey it to the borough.
—The sixty-eighth year will open
at The Pennsylvania State College on
September 13th. Registration will
take place on Monday and Tuesday,
September 11th and 12th. The larg-
est enrollment in the college history
is expected, about 3300 or 3400 men
and women.
——Several thousand potato grow-
ers of Pennsylvania are expected to
attend the ground-breaking exercises
for the new hospital at The Pennsyl-
vania State College on August 25th.
The potato industry of the State is

J. O. Heverly to Begin Building Op-
erations Soon.
Several weeks ago the “Watchman”
mentioned the fact that J. O. Heverly
had purchased the old Curtin property
on the northeast corner of the Dia-
mond and extending on Allegheny
street to Pike alley, then having sold
portions of the property to Dr. C. M.
Parrish, Thomas H. Harter and
Charles F. Mensch. Plans have been
completed for the erection of a splen-
did business block on the location
which will compare most favorably
with any of the buildings surround-
ing the public square.
In the resale of a portion of the
property Dr. Parrish will secure the
first twenty-five feet along the alley.
The next forty-six foot frontage has
been purchased by Harter and Mensch,
while the remainder of the property,
some seventy-five or eighty foot front-
age belongs to Mr. Heverly.
Plans for the building have not only
been drawn but Mr. Heverly antici-
pates beginning work on or about Au-
gust 15th on dismantling the old stone
building next the vacant space adjoin-
ing the Gazette office building. It is
his intention to erect thereon this fall
a building twenty-five feet in width
‘and four stories high which will be
' one unit of the entire block when com-
‘pleted. As soon as this building is
completed Mr. Heverly will move his
‘ store into it and next spring the bal-
ance of the old building will be dis-
mantled, which will also include the
present law offices of Clement Dale
iand J. Kennedy Johnston, and two
| more store rooms built thereon.
| Mr. Heverly will then occupy the
| corner room, extending east on High
i street. Dr. Parrish and Messrs. Har-
{ter and Mensch also contemplate
| building their portion of the block
next summer, so that in one year
| from now the entire block will likely
| be finished and occupied. The build-
| ing will be of concrete, brick and tile
; and as near fire proof as it is possible
{ to make it. Each unit will be built
| to correspond with the others so that
{ when the block is completed it will
| have the appearance of one building.
i The erection of this block will mean
| the trimming or complete removal of
| the big elm trees that have stood there
for many years. In fact some author-
ities put them at over a hundred years
old. These trees are inside the curb
{line and naturally would interfere
with the construction of a new con-
crete pavement which the owners wish
to put down, and there is of couse a
considerable feeling of sentiment
| against their removal, but that is a
| question we have no intention of dis-
cussing here, as there is every reason
| to believe a satisfactory solution will
i be reached by the parties interested.
{ That the building to be erected will
| be a big improvement to that part of
town, is a fact beyond dispute. It
will also afford several additional
store rooms, while the upper floors
will be constructed into offices, flats,
Nash Reduces Prices.
Word comes from the Nash factory
announcing substantial reductions in
the price of all Nash models, ranging
from $150 to $200 on the six cylinder
cars, and from $50 to $100 on the
In making these reductions C. W.
Nash said, “The dollar now has great-
er purchasing power in the automo-
bile field than anywhere else. The
quality of Nash cars has been stead-
ily improved and in construction and
performance they are the finest cars
I have ever produced. In fact at no
previous time in the history of the in-
dustry has there been such great val-
ue offered at such low prices.”
“Considering labor and material
costs it is seriously questionable as to
whether or not such low prices can be
maintained. If ever there has been a
buyers’ market it is right now.”
The Wion Garage is the local agen-
cy for the distribution of Nash cars
and we understand that Mr. Wion,
the manager, is kept on the jump
demonstrating and delivering cars.
The Nash is becoming quite popular
in Centre county. It is proving a
very dependable car and its good lines,
service record and low cost of upkeep
are impressing discriminating buyers.
Fair Time Will Soon be Here.
The time for the annual county fairs
will soon be here, in fact the big Blair

Hall will be held the week of Septem-
ber 2-8. Other county fairs in which

Did the Foresters Eat All the Snakes?
A year ago the young foresters of
State College who spent two weeks in
camp in Bear Hollow, Clinton county,
gained considerable notoriety by eat-
ing rattlesnakes. Most people regard
the rattler as a holy terror and the
natives of Fishing creek region'nat-
urally gasped with astonishment when
they learned that the young foresters
feasted on the reptiles.
For many years rattlers had been
unusually plentiful in that section bu
this year they were extremely scarce.
In fact only about a half dozen were
seen and killed in that locality and the
question now arises did the foresters
eat so many of the snakes that they
cleaned them out like the trout have
been cleaned out of Fishing creek?
A contingent of young engineers
camped in that vicinity this year
but there has been no word of any
snake repasts. Another contingent of
foresters camped on Stone creek, in
the Seven mountains, and report saith
that the rattlesnake feast was held
there. And now it will likely be only
a question of time until the entire
Seven mountain region will be cleaned
up so far as the deadly rattler is con-
Miss Lulu Bett.
Next week the “Watchman” will
publish the first installment of a new
serial story entitled “Miss Lulu Bett,” |
by that brilliant young writer, Miss
Zona Gale. It is a story that will ap-
peal to every reader who enjoys real
human beings in the pages of a book.
The story is replete with picturesque
descriptions of life in the west and is
not without its glint of humor from
beginning to end. Read the opening
installment in this paper next week
and we know that you will follow it
to the end.

In Memory of Corporal Albert Homer
The undersigned committee, ap-
pointed at the regular meeting of the
Albright Brotherhood of United Evan-
gelical church, Bellefonte, adopted
the following resolution regarding Al-
bert Homer Sager, who lost his life at
Jenners mine, Farrellton Station, Pa.,
July 25th, by being thrown under an
army transport truck, when it upset.
Whereas, Almighty God has, in His all-
wise providence, seen fit to remove from
the church militant to the church triumph-
ant, our beloved brother and fellow la-
borer, Albert Homer Sager, who stood so
high in the councils of, and was so well
qualified for service and leadership in our
church, as is evidenced by the success
which attended his work, by the positions
of honor to which he was called, and by
the esteem in which he was held; there-
Resolved, That in this sad taking away
of our brother, we acknowledge that we
have lost one whose friendship and fel-
lowship it was an honor and pleasure to
be permitted to enjoy; that to come in
contact with this earnest, conscientious,
consecrated, christian young life was a
benediction of love, joy, peace and glad-
ness, far beyond the power of our feeble
attempts to appraise; and that our church
in general will miss his faithful attend-
ance upon its different activities.
Whereas, Our Omniscient, Heavenly
Father is too wise to err and is surely too
good to be unkind; Who doeth al’ things

loved ones, relatives and friends, to join
us in bowing in humble submission to the
holy will of God, and saying “Thy will, O
God, not ours, be done.”

And the confidence is what we are
striving to attain. Perhaps you have
been reading the ads placed in this
paper every week. If so, you are in-
terested and some time you will need
spectacles or eye glasses. This is
only the natural course of events.
When the time arrives I would like
