Bellefonte Soldiers Have Comfortable
O. P. Morton Smith came home last
week on a month’s furlough in order
to recuperate from the injuries he sus-
tained in the motor bus accident in
which Corp. Albert Sager lost his life.
He stated that Capt. W. Frederick
Reynolds desired the “Watchman” to
inform the families and friends of all
the members of Troop B, 52nd machine
gun battalion, that the boys are all
well and nicely located. Their camp
at Jenners Station is on an old race
track grounds, with running water
close by for the horses and water
piped into the camp. All the tents
have board floors and are lighted by
electricity. They have an abundance
of food, of a good and substantial
Some of the boys, especially those
who have steady employment at home,
have gotten a little homesick, espe-
cially because of the inactivity at
camp, but the young boys who enlist-
ed especially for the annual encamp-
ment are having the time of their
lives and don’t seem to care how long
the job lasts. Up until last week the
duties were very light, consisting en-
tirely of patrol work, but last week
the men were put on fourteen hour
drill and this will probably overcome
the spirit of restlessness manifest
among some of them.
So far there has been no disturb-
ance of any kind and no indication of
any feeling against the soldiers by the
residents in that locality, most of
whom are foreigners. The men and
boys occasionally gather around the
camp grounds and watch the soldiers
but make no demonstration’ of any
Of course the grounds are patrolled
and no one is allowed inside the lines
unless he has a pass. In this connec-
tion a rather amusing incident hap-
pened recently. Colonel Stackpole
is the commanding officer of all
the troops in that section. He has his
headquarters at Johnstown and mo-
tors to the various camps. Naturally
most of the soldiers know him and
when he appears at a camp the guard
passes him without question. One
night recently young Jimmie Bower
was on guard when the Col. drove
up. The young soldier halted him and
demanded his pass. The Col. nat-
urally said he didn’t have any but
that he was the commanding officer.
Jimmie, however, was firm. He stat-
ed that his orders were to admit no
one within the lines who did not have
a pass, but he finally compromised by
offering to call the corporal of the
guard. This was done and as soon as
the corporal approached and saw Col.
Stackpole he instructed the young
guard to pass him, and with a salute
Jimmie stepped aside and allowed the
commanding officer to pass, though he
probably smiled afterwards.
——Last Sunday a week a Coleville
man was arrested at the Pennsylvania
railroad depot in this place for hav-
ing in his possession a quart bottle
three-quarters full of moonshine and
on Saturday a Bellefonte man was dis-
covered sitting on the curb on Bishop
street with a quart and a half of
moonshine. Both men were fined sev-
en dollars and a half by burgess W.
Harrison Walker. When asked where
they got the moonshine both of
the gentlemen evaded the question by
declaring that the man they got it
from was an entire stranger. Of
course he may have been a stranger
and he may not, but one thing is cer-
tain and that is that the moonshine
trails reach out in devious ways and
always manage to reach the suscepti-
ble individual.
MUFFLY.—Mary Baker Muffly was
bern in Howard, Centre county, Pa.,
January 18th, 1842, and died June 6th,
1922, in Los Angeles, Cal., while on a
visit to her daughter, Mrs. Mary
Morehead, aged 80 years, 4 months
and 23 days. At the close of the Civil
war, early in the year 1866, she went
to Des Moines, Iowa, with her husband,
the late Capt. J. W. Muffly, tc whom
she was united in marriage, February
14th, 1864, having a continuous resi-
dence in that city during the past
fifty-six years. She was the mother
of five children, and is survived by
two daughters, one son, and a num-
ber of other near relatives.
In the fall of the year 1855, at the
age of thirteen years, at an old-time
Methodist camp-meeting held on a
mountainside of her native State, she
was soundly converted and united
with the church, and after living a
conscientious christian life, practicing
her religious profession, covering a
period of sixty-seven years, her trans-
ition was triumphant.
On going to Des Moines she trans-
ferred her church relations to the then
newly established, Centenary M. E.
church, which later consolidated with
the First Methodist church, this being
her church home at the time of her
She outlived the other members of
her father’s family, being the last to
greet father, mother, two sisters and
six brothers, on the other shore. She
was particularly attached to her home
life, having no outside social nor fra-
ternal connections, other than the
Women’s Relief Corps, and her church
societies, always content in passing
her time in the atmosphere of con-
sistent, christian associations. * * *

ARMAGOST.—Mrs. Nancy E. Ar-
magost, wife of Henry Armagost,
died at her home at Hunter's Park
at 11:15 o'clock on Tuesday night.
Four months or more ago she suffered
a stroke of paralysis and although she
had been an invalid ever since her
condition did not become serious un-
til last Friday. She became quite ill
that day and grew rapidly worse un-
til the end.
Her maiden name was Nancy E.
Long and she was born at Jackson-
ville about seventy-four years ago.
Her early life was spent at that place
but after her marriage to Mr. Arma-
gost about forty years ago they took
up their residence on the Armagost
farm at Hunter’s Park and that had
been her home ever since. She was a
member of the Presbyterian church
from girlhood and on locating near
Fillmore became a member of the
Buffalo Run congregation. She was
quite active in all kinds of church
work and always quick to render as-
sistance to her neighbors and friends
in time of sickness or distress.
She is survived by her husband and
two children, John H., on the home
farm, and Mrs. Roy Miles, of Clays-
burg. She also leaves one brother,
David Long, of Jacksonville. Funeral
services will be held in the Buffalo
Run Presbyterian church at two
¢’clock this (Friday) afternoon by the
pastor, Rev. Brown, after which in-
terment will be made in the Meyers
cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Miles
and daughter Josephine, of Claysville,
are all at home for the funeral.

years old. She was married to Mr.
Walker on October 15th, 1889, and
had been a resident of Salona ever
since. She had no children but is sur-
vived by three step-sons, Charles E.

long member of the Reformed church

Interesting Y. M. C. A. News.
The board of directors of the Y. M.
C. A. will hold their monthly business
meeting this (Friday) evening at the
rooms, at 8 o'clock. Matters of im-
portance relative to the fall and win-
ter work will be taken up.
The bowling committee are makipg
preparations for a big season on the
alleys. The alleys will be put into
first class shape by efficient mechan-
ics, who may not be here until Octo-
ber, due to the rush there is for new
alleys and repairs. The firm has
promised to hustle the work as much
as possible. The alleys will be fixed
up temporarily and will be ready the
early part of September. A number
of the rubber balls have been sent to
the manufacturers for revuleanizing
of the holes and they assure us that
they will be as good as new balls when
they return. It is expected that two
bowling leagues will be organized this
fall, and several teams are awaiting
the cool evenings to arrive that they
may begin practice.
Mr. H. I. Mentzer has been visiting
his people at Pottstown during the
past two weeks and will return this
week: He will arrange the schedule
and classes for the opening of the
gym, which will be during the second
week in September. Basket ball and
indoor base-ball will be the major
sports this winter. It is planned to
continue the splendid work of the
Sunday school base-ball league by the
organization of a Sunday school bas-
ket ball league. If the same interest
is shown in this sport as the base-ball
received, there will be some good
evenings of clean sport in the Y gym
this winter.
The general secretary will take a
group of hikers on a- three day trip
next week. They will head for the
virgin forest and mountains, camping
out two nights, leaving Monday a. m.,
and returning Wednesday evening.
8. 0.’S. Call of American Legion.
The Brooks-Doll Post of the Amer-
ican Legion is in need of a home, a
building that will afford a hall for
meeting nights and also have all the
requisites of a club where the boys
can gather in a social way. A fund
has been started for this purpose but
it is growing very slowly. In fact so
slowly that the home seems a long
ways off to the soldiers who fought in
the world war, when everything was
done in a hurry. The Post will have
a picnic at Hecla park on Labor day
and as this is the first gathering of
the kind, and the last big picnic of the
season, it should be liberally patron-
Many Posts in Pennsylvania are en-
Jjoying comfortable homes, given the
soldier boys by one or more individ-
uals, or purchased for them by public
subscriptions. In one community in
Pennsylvania every worker contribut-
ed one day’s pay and in that way ‘a
fund was raised for the purchase of a
home for the boys. In another town
bonds were sold to finance a home.
Members of the Brooks-Doll Post have
had several properties in view but
lack the finances to close a deal for
any of them.
If anybody in Bellefonte can map
out a plan whereby the Legion boys
can attain their desire they will be
glad to hear from them.

RICHARDS.—Thomas M. Richards,
for years a well known resident of Ju-
lian, died at the Danville hospital last
Friday afternoon following a brief ill-
ness, aged 75 years. He is survived
by one son and a daughter, William,

Port Matilda. He also leaves one
brother, John Richards, of Bellefonte,
and a sister living at Patton. Burial
was made in the Julian cemetery on.

Business Men’s Picnic Drew Large
The annual picnic of the Associated
Business Men of Bellefonte attracted
an immense crowd to Hecla park last
Thursday. All the stores in Bellefonte
closed for the day and the town was
almost deserted. Of course hundreds
of people motored to the park from
all parts of Centre county, while Lock
Haven and Clinton county were well
represented. The main sporting fea-
tures were the ball games in the
morning and afternoon. One thous-
and people stood in the hot sun in the
afternoon and watched the game be-
tween the Harrisburg and Williams-
port P. R. R. motive power teams, the
former winning by a decided score.
Of course there were other sports,
boating, dancing and band concerts.
The day was uncomfortably hot, but
just right for the ice cream conces-
sions, held by the Brooks-Doll Post of
the American Legion. They sold 225
gallons of cream up to early in the
evening and then quit because the
young men in charge were about
played out.
Park proprietor W. C. Rowe's soft
‘drink stand also did a rushing busi-
iness. He had four helpers and every
{ man was kept on the jump. The eat-
i ing stands also did a good business in
! the evening, as many people remained
| for the dancing during the early part
i of the night.
| While the committees in charge
i have not figured up all obligations
they figure that the association will
come out just about even on the day.
The expenses were unusually heavy
insurance policy for one thousand dol-
lars on which the premium was con-
siderable and then it didn’t rain.
Considerable interest was taken in
the contests put on for the young peo-
ple, which were in charge of secretary
S. S. Aplin, of the Y. M. C. A,, and
who was ably assisted by G. Oscar
Gray, Donald Gettig, Edward Keich-
line and W. Williams. All the prizes

Tyrone Division P. R. R. athletic
park is the ideal spot for this great
meet in every respect. Centrally sit-
uated on the main line of the Penn-
sylvania railroad, it is a railroad ter-
minal town for all points; the Wil-
liam Penn highway and Great Lakes
to the sea highway also run through
Tyrone making it easily accessible by
Complete from start to finish are
the arrangements for the big meet;
nothing has been overlooked for the
comfort and convenience of athletes
and visitors. Ample and regulated
parking space for three thousand au-
tomobiles; traffic regulations and po-
lice protection, latest improved cafe-
teria service, capable of quickly serv-
ing all; seating capacity for twelve
thousand spectators, so that all have
clear and unobstructed view of all
events; medical service; ample toilet
and rest room facilities; in fact, noth-
ing has been overlooked—and all this
right on the grounds.

New Faculty Appointments at State
The appointment of a new dean of
the school of mines, and a new direct-
or of music and the close of the
thirteenth annual summer session
have been among the happenings of
interest at The Pennsylvania State
College during the past week.
Elmer A. Holbrook, assistant direc-
tor of the U. S. Bureau of Mines, is to
become the new dean of mines at the
College, succeeding Dr. E. S. Moore,
who goes on September 1st to the Uni-
versity of Toronto. The new dean is
looked upon as one of the most prom-
inent mining engineers in the country
and Penn State is extremely fortunate
in securing him to advance the college
standards in training men for the coal
mining and steel making industries.
Richard W. Grant, formerly direc-
tor of school music at Winchester,
Mass., has been appointed as head of
the department of music at the Col-
lege, succeeding C. C. Robinson, who
has gone to Ohio University.
| Penn State this summer enjoyed the
| largest and best summer session in
(its history. With the 150 county su-
. perintendents who attended during
{ the past week, over 2700 people were
lat the College during the summer.
The success of the school, which clos-
ed Saturday, is largely due to the ef-

| Penn State Cadets Win Rifle Honors.
An official army report issued re-
cently from Edgewood Arsenal,
Maryland, where students in the Re-
serve Officers’ Training Corps for the
Third Corps area are putting in their
summer camp, contained the informa-
tion that the delegation from The
Pennsylvania State College had car-
ried off fixst honors in the intercolle-
giate rifle competition among the col-
leges represented at the camp. The
Penn State second team finished in
tenth place, while the victorious first
team also defeated Lehigh in a spe-
cial team-match. There are forty-
five Penn State representatives at the
summer camp and their proficiency
with the rifle was further indicated by
the fact that almost half of them
qualified as expert riflemen, sharp-
shooters or marksmen.
During the college year, the Penn
State rifle teams took first and fourth
places among colleges in the Third
Corps area, and in the national inter-
collegiate competition, Penn State fin-
ished second, just a few points behind
the University of Dayton. The second
team finished 12th in the national
Foster—Hair.—At least one out of
the hundreds of young women school
teachers whe attended the summer
session at State College did not de-
vote her entire time to the study of
advanced courses, but took a dip into
that oldest of stories, “love and mat-
rimony.” The young lady in question
is Miss Helen Hair, a daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Horace Hair, of Roaring
Spring, Blair county, and the young
man James Foster, son of Mr. and
Mrs Charles Foster, who motored to
Cumberland, Md., on Saturday, Au-
gust 12th, where they were married
by the pastor of the First Methodist
church. Miss Hair met Foster for the
first time after going to State Col-
lege for the summer course and their
courtship progressed rapidly until it
culminated in their marriage. Mrs.
Foster will continue her worke as
teacher of the grammar school at
Roaring Spring while her husband,
who is a Junior at State College, will
also continue his college work.

—Mrs. Anthony Cooke, of Cookesburg,
National vice president of the D. A. R.,
spent Tuesday evening in Bellefonte, to
meet the local D. A. R., pertaining to her
candidacy for President General, election
to be held at the National Congress in
Washington, in April. Mrs. Cooke has
long been prominent in the D. A. R. work
of the State and preceded Mrs. Sparks as
Regent. When leaving to continue her
drive through Central Pennsylvania, on
her visit to the different Chapters, Mrs.
Cooke was accompanied by Mrs. W. F.
—What a surprise we had on Monday
morning when Howard Sargent, of Pitts-
burgh, walked in here disguised in a big
pair of horn-rimmed spectacles but other-
wise democratic and debonair as ever. We
hadn't lamped Howard for years and we
promptly rolled down our shirt sleeves,
tucked up our apron and squatted for a
good long chat with the friend who is one
with us in the matter of having a simple
faith in Democracy and a simple notion
that where a circus is concerned a regular
boy never grows old. Howard is with the
Atlas Powder Co., and was here on busi-
ness. He had Mr. Ernest Hoag, of Phil-
ipsburg, in tow; the latter being the rep-
resentative of the Atlas company in that
place. Our only regret was that their en-
gagements elsewhere took them off long
before we had talked half the things we
had on our chest to say.

“Oh, Wad Some Power the Giftie Gie
Us, to See Ourselves as Others
See Us.”
It’s quite natural to see the short-
comings in every one but ourselves.
In looking for the mote in the other
fellow’s eye we overlook the beam in
our own, which may be caused by
myopia, (near-sight), hyperopia, (far-
sight), or astigmatism, (mixed-sight),
all of which may be corrected with
glasses that will make you feel better;
also help you see the good traits in
the other fellow.
