dition and more capable of carrying
a heavy load than ever before.
— Don’t overlook the new serial

will look forward with keen anticipa-
tions of pleasure to what is to follow.
——On Monday Edward Zimmer-
man took his son Harold and Leopold
Levi to Johnstown in his car from
where the two youths started out on
a hike to San Francisco. They took
no money with them intending to
work their way through.
— Rev. S. Earl Orwig, having sud-
denly decided to go to Porto Rico, will

liams, and other relatives.

— Monday afternoon 2 man in the

to his former home in Danville.
— The Chautauqua is over and no
more carnivals are in sight, but Belle-
fonte people can always find amuse-
ment and entertainment at the Scen-
ic. Other amusements come and go
but the Scenic is continually with us.
And notwithstanding the fact that it
is the only motion picture show in
Bellefonte it is in a class by itself, en-
joying a reputation for a better class
of pictures than is shown anywhere
else in Central Pennsylvania.
The grocery store of Alters &
Stover, inthe Bush house block, was
closed on Monday owing to financial
difficulties of the young partners.
They have an opportunity to dispose
of their store to John P. Eckel at a
price that will save all their creditors
from loss. In fact the deal has been
made and only awaits the sanction of
all the creditors to become effective.
This, it is believed, will be accomplish-
ed in a few days and such proving to
be the case Mr. Eckel will open up for
business on or about August 15th.
‘His plans include a very decided
«change in the store and something
‘new in Bellefonte. One side of the
.store will be taken up with the gro-
.cery department while an up-to-date
‘meat market will be installed in the
other side.
— Mrs. Luella Dale Cheesman,
wife of Calvin A. Cheesman, of Al-
toona, last week brought action
against her husband for desertion and
non-support and the case was aired
at a hearing before Judge Quigley on
Monday. Mrs. Cheesman is a daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. William Dale, of
Dale’s Summit. Her marriage to Mr.
Cheesman took place several years
ago and during their brief married
life they have lived in Altoona, where
Mz. Cheesman, who is a traveling
salesman, made his headquarters.
Mrs. Cheesman claimed that her hus-
band didn’t treat her right and Mr.
Cheesman claimed that his wife want-
ed to spend too much time with her
parents to the neglect of her own
home. They have an eighteen months
old child and after hearing the evi-
dence the court ordered Mr. Cheesman
to pay $65 a month for the support of
his wife and child and give bond for
the faithful carrying out of the court
order, which he did.
Routine Business Transacted by Bor-
ough Council.
J. O. Heverly, proprietor of the au-
to supply store on the corner of Alle-
gheny and High streets, appeared be-
fore borough council, at a regular
meeting on Monday evening, and
after detailing the plans for the erec-
tion of a solid, four story business
block on Allegheny street, requested
permission to remove the large elm
trees along the front of the proposed
building, as so much of the trees
would have to be cut away in the
erection of the building that it would
not only spoil their beauty but make
them lop-sided and unsafe. They will
also interfere with the putting down
of a new concrete pavement. Mr.
Heverly also asked permission to
move his gasoline tank from its pres-
ent location on Allegheny street to the
High street side of his building and
also put down an additional tank. He
also wants to move the fire plug from
Allegheny street to High street. He
explained that the building will be
fireproof and asked for a permit for
its erection. Mr. Heverly’s requests
were referred to various committees
with the assurance of president Walk-
er that council will do everything pos-
sible to assist in working out his dif-
ferent problems satisfactorily.
The Street committee reported the
completion of the Lamb street bridge
and the collection from the County
Commissioners of $500 as the coun-
ty’s share of the expense. The com-
mittee also reported the collection of
$272.40 on the Bishop and Spring
street paving, $17.00 for old lumber
sold, $10.00 for oil on street, and $20.-
00 for sewer permits.
The Water committee reported the
duplicate and stated that the duplicate |
for 1922 has been made up. It aggre-
gates $9966.50 with meter bills esti-
mated at $4254.86, or a total of $14,-
220.86. The committee suggested that
the uncollected portion of the 1921 du-
plicate be withdrawn from the State-
Centre Electric company about Sep-
tember 1st and turned over to the
borough manager, and the 1922 du-
plicate be given the State-Centre for
collection. The committee submitted
correspondence with the Titan Metal
company in which they agree to pay
$400.00 in settlement of all water
rent claims up to April 1st, 1922, and
to pay the regular commercial rate
thereafter, bills to be submitted quar-
terly. On recommendation of the
committee the offer was accepted and
the secretary was instructed to so no-
tify the company.
The Fire and Police committee sub-
mitted a check for $53.00, being a vol-
untary contribution of the citizens of
Axe Mann for the work of the Belle-
fonte fire department on “he occasion
of the burning of Mr. White’s flour
mill. In addition to the above sum a
check for $15.00 was given to each
fire company. On motion of Mr. Cun-
ningham a vote of thanks was extend-
ed the citizens of Axe Mann, and the
secretary was instructed to so notify
The Finance committee presented
the report of the borough treasurer
showing a balance in his hands of
$1877.94. On motion the treasurer
was authorized to renew a note for
$7,000 and execute a new note for
$1,000 to pay current bills. The sec-
retary reported that the second note
in payment on the triple pumper
amounting with interest to $2323.50,
was overdue and on the recommenda-
tion of the Finance committee the
treasurer was authorized to execute
2 new note to pay the same.
Mr. Cunningham stated that resi-
dents of Halfmoon hill have been coni-
plaining of the shortage of the water
supply and have applied to him on
various occasions for a new service
line to that section. There are four
or five families within the borough
limits and Brown & Haupt have just
sold three lots with the assurance
that houses will be erected thereon in
the near future. In addition there are
twelve or more outside
the borough limits who will take the
water and lay their own pipe. Mr.
Cunningham stated that it will take
approximately 1125 feet of pipe and
he recommended putting down four
inch pipe to the top of the hill, where
Mr. Haupt will put in at his own ex-
pense a fire plug. From there out a
two inch pipe will be used. The es-
timated cost will be from $700 to $800
and the committee was empowered to
go ahead with the work.
Mr. Waite, of the Sanitary com-
mittee, reported that several business
men in Bellefonte have been making
it a practice to dump decayed fruit
and vegetables on the Blair property
on Willowbank street, and the stench
is very offensive to residents in that
locality. While there is no borough
ordinance covering the problem there
is a state law providing a heavy pen-
alty for dumping offensive matter
within five hundred feet of any resi-
dence and the matter was referred to
the Sanitary committee with power to
abate the nuisance.
Borough manager J. D. Seibert
stated that he still has quite a num-
ber of bills against residents along
the Bishop, Spring and Pine streets
state highway which are unpaid and
which he is” unable to collect, and he
was instructed to turn all bills over to
the borough solicitor for collection or
entering of liens against the proper-
Bills approximating $2,600.00 were
approved for payment, after which
council adjourned.

Howard Boy Killed in Auto Accident
on Wednesday.
Paul Johnston, thirteen year old son
of Clarence Johnston, of Howard, is
dead as the result of an auto accident
on the Allegheny mountain, early
Wednesday morning, and the father
is in the Bellefonte hospital as the re-
sult of injuries he sustained, though
his condition is not serious. Mr.
Johnston conducts a meat market at
Howard and makes trips to Snow
Shoe two or three times a week. On
Wednesday he was on his way out
with a Ford truck load of meat and on
one of the sharp curves near the top
of the mountain his steering appara-
tus buckled and the machine ran
through the guard rail, off the road
and landed upside down twenty-five
feet below at the bottom of a ravine.
Both Mr. Johnston and his son were
pinned beneath the car in such a way
that neither could get out, but the boy
was not killed outright.
Robert F. Hunter and county treas-
urer L. Frank Mayes were on their
way to Karthaus and just as they
passed the spot where the accident oc-
curred Mr. Mayes heard some one yell-
ing for help and had Mr. Hunter stop
the car. Mayes jumped out, ran back
the road and quickly discovered where
the car had gone over the bank and
also saw the overturned vehicle at the
bottom of the ravine. He called to
Mr. Hunter and both men quickly
made their way down to the wrecked
car. They found Mr. Johnston pinned
fast beneath it but still conscious. He
told them about his boy and his fear
that the lad was dead.
The car lay in such a position that
it could not be overturned and it was
impossible for the two men to lift it,
Fortunately other motorists happen-
until there were enough men on the
ground to lift the car and pull Mr.
Johnston from beneath it. The boy
was carefully taken out but he was
dead. Mr. Hunter brought Mr. John-
ston to the Bellefonte hospital while
the body of the dead boy was taken to
Wetzler’s undertaking establishment
at Milesburg.
Paul Johnston was thirteen years
old on Monday and was an unusually
bright and intelligent youth. He was
a member of the Methodist church at
Howard and the Howard troop of Boy
Scouts. His mother died two years
ago but he is survived by his father,
two sisters and a brother, namely:
Vonda, Dean and Myrtle. Rev. Mel-
lott, of the Methodist church, will
have charge of the funerql services
which will be held on Sunday after-
noon, burial to be made in the Schenck
The Elks and the Kids.
Yesterday Bellefonte Lodge B. P. O.
E. celebrated its much advertised kid: | the
dies day at Hecla Park.
The good time really began on Wed-
nesday evening when most of the lit-
tle folks assembled in front of the
Elk’s home, on High street, and were
marshalled into line for a parade
headed by the Odd Fellows band.
Heading the parade was the com-
mittee of arrangements and following
the band trooped exactly 380 happy
children. It reminded us for all the
world of a “Pied Piper of Hamlin”
performance. Innocent, hopeful little
folks effervescent with the joys of life
and utterly unable to repress their
spirits, following wherever the big
brother Elks and the band led them.
Indeed we would have advised them to
have a care, after discovering the
number of bachelors in the front, but
back along the line was Sheriff Yar-
nell, Roy Wilkinson and Oscar Gray
and as few people have anything on
them in the line of children we felt
Yesterday morning the crowd was
at the Elks home bright and early.
There each child was given a souvenir
cap, a package of five tickets for boat
rides, merry-go-round, etc., and load-
ed into Emerick busses and cars of
the members that took them the hap-
py journey to the park.
There were about 400 in all, and
such a day. Captain General G.
Washington Rees and his assistants
were sure the old woman who lived in
a shoe long before night-fall. The
park rang with shrieks of delight and
little tummies groaned with the loads
of goodies that found their way into
them. Everything that had been
promised was there so there was no
disappointment and the day will lin-
ger long in the memory of Belle-
fonte’s childhood.
— The Warner-American News is
the name of a new monthly publica-
tion that has come into being with the
merger of the American Lime and
Stone company, and the Warner in-
terests. Vol. 1, No. 1, has just reach-
ed our desk and contains a full page
picture of the Hon. A. G. Morris, as
the frontispiece. The little magazine
is full of news of the company’s var-
ious enterprises and is designed to
promote a more intimate knowledge
among owners and employees as to
what they are doing and why they are
doing it. One of the departments is
headed “screenings” and there we no-
tice that Stewart “Hook” Hampton
has just had his eighteenth visit from
the stork and “Hook” isn’t looking for
sympathy, either. It’s congratula-
tions he’s open for. If he produces on
his job like he does at home we should
say it’s the American Co. that should
be congratulated on having such an

Major Curtin and Headquarters Troop
Sent to Cambria County.
Major H. Laird Curtin and the
headquarters troop of the Fifty-sec-
ond machine gun squadron, number-
ing four officers and thirty-three men,
were transferred this week from Coke-
burg, Washington county, to Camp
Little, Cambria county. This will en-
able Major Curtin to keep in closer
touch and personally direct the move-
ments of Troop A, under command of
Capt. Charles E. Sohl, which is sta-
tioned at Vintondale, and Troop B,
under command of Capt. W. Freder-
ick Reynolds, stationed at Jenners
Station, though all the troops are in
direct charge of Major Edgar McKin-
ney, the senior ranking officer.
So far there has been no disturb-
ance of any kind in the Cambria, In-
diana and Somerset county district and
the work of the soldiers so far has
consisted of patrol duty and the reg-
ular routine of camp life. A wireless
telephone has been installed at Camp
Little and the soldiers are planning
to pick up the concerts broadcasted
from the Westinghouse station at
East Pittsburgh. The instrument is
used primarily for communication
with the troops at Cokeburg, both a
sending and a receiving apparatus
having been set up. Additional
lights have been installed in the camp
and everything made as comfortable
as possible for the soldiers, in antic-
ipation of a prolonged stay.
Celebrated 90th Birthday with Family
John P. Harris, one of the best
known men of Bellefonte, as well as
the oldest man who has spent his en-
tire life in the town, celebrated his
ninetieth birthday anniversary on Sat-
urday with a family dinner at the
Brockerhoff house. The dinner was
served at 6:30 p. m., and just eight
members of the Harris family gather-
ed around the festive board. They in-
cluded Mr. Harris, his daughter, Mrs.
Frank Warfield and her daughter,
Mrs. James Craig; Mr. and Mrs. J.
Linn Harris, of Lock Haven, and Dr.
and Mrs. Edward Harris and son, of
Snow Shoe. The family circle was
not complete, owing to the absence of
A. Scott Harris and Dr. Edith Schad,
of Pittsburgh, and John P. Harris Jr.,
of Mt. Union, but at that the dinner
proved a very pleasant affair and was
greatly enjoyed by those in attend-
ance. :
Mr. Harris was born on Howard
street, Bellefonte, on August 5th,
1832. He was educated in the public
schools of the town and as a young
man took his first job as a clerk in the
banking house of Humes, McAllister
& Co. That was his introductory into
the banking: business which he made
"his life work until his retirement
about three years ago. He also serv-
ed many years on the Bellefonte
school board and always took an ac-
tive interest in politics and all eco-
nomic questions relating to the wel-
fare of Bellefonte.
Though he has passed the four
score and ten mark he still enjoys
good health. Of course he is not as
active as a man of younger years but
he is out and around town every day,
reads the daily papers and keeps in
touch with all that is going on.
Men’s Big Picnic Next
Representatives of the Associated
Business Men of Bellefonte literally
plastered the county with big bills on
Monday and Tuesday heralding their
third annual picnic to be held at Hec-
la park next Thursday, August 17th.
Most of the important features of the
day’s program are announced on the
big posters, but there will be other
features which will prove quite at-
tractive to all who attend.
All the Bellefonte stores will be
closed during the afernoon so as to
permit the owners and clerks an oppor-
tunity to enjoy the gathering. But
the picnic is not confined to Belle-
fonte. Business men and the public
generally throughout Centre county
are urged to attend. Take the day oft
and spend it at the park. Make the
picnic an opportunity to become bet-
ter acquainted and thus encourage a
more progressive business spirit.
Remember there will be two base-
ball games, one in the morning and
one in the afternoon. Band concerts
throughout the day. Boating, dancing
and other sports. Go in the morning
and make a day of it.
Two Bellefonte Institutions Receive
Substantial Gifts.
The Bellefonte Y. M. C. A. and the
hospital were the recipients of sub-
stantial presents on Tuesday, when
they received letters from Mrs.
Blanche Hayes Hiller who is spending
the summer in Dahoka, Missouri.
To the Y. Mrs. Hiller sent her
check for one thousand dollars and the
hospital received one hundred.
We have no authority for doing so
in the name of the institutions bene-
fitted, but in the name of the town of
which both render such splendid serv-
ice we do express the public apprecia-
tion of such worth while gifts.

——On Sunday afternoon Elias Na-
mey, J. E. Namey and George Mak-
dad left Altoona to motor to Williams-
port by way of State College. Near
the latter place the driver of the car
espied a hole in the road a short dis-
tance ahead and threw on his emer-
gency brakes with the result that the
wheels locked and the car turned sev-
eral somersaults landing in the ditch
alongside the road. Elias Namey suf-
fered a broken arm and cuts and
bruises on the head while the other
men were only slightly injured. Their
injuries were treated by a State Col-
lege physician and Elias Namey and
Mr. Makdad returned to Altoona
while J. E. Namey borrowed a car and
