Monastery, West Park, N. Y., in com-
pany with numerous other priests of
the Episcopal church, at the annual
retreat. A retreat is a series of re-

tor’s wife, who is the teacher of the

curing their services at this particular
time. The program will consist of
single and double quartettes, trios, du-
ets, solos, etc. Admission, adults 50
cents; children under twelve years, if
accompanied by parents or guardians,
25 cents.
—During the past year or longer
the Pennsylvania freight depot in
‘Bellefonte has been overrun with rats,
.and nothing eatable escaped from the
depredations of the rodents. In fact
‘the rats were so plentiful that some
.of the men who work down there
claim that they had to kick them out
of their way to keep from falling over
them. Naturally they were quite de-
structive on some food shipments and
to protect the latter the railroad com-
pany built in the wareroom a rat proof
wire cage fourteen feet long, eight
feet wide and eight feet high in which
all foodstuffs were stored until with-
drawn from the depot. And mow the
peculiar fact in connection therewith
is that not a rat has been seen inside
the depot since the cage was installed.
— Judge Witmer, of the Federal
district court, has handed down a rul-
ing in the matter of the application
to amend the petition of John M. Shu-
gert to show cause why Florence F.

adjudged bankrupt. It is the outcome
of the argument before Judge Wit-
mer, at Sunbury, last Friday. The
original subpoenas again:i Mrs. Dale
and Mr. Meek are ordered quashed and
the petitioner is granted the right
to cause a new one to issue which will
be returnable October 10th, when
answer to the Court must be made, on
the part of Mrs. Dale and Mr. Meek,
to the amendment granted the peti-
tioner. After this answer is made on
October 10th. A date will be set for
the argument on it and the preceed-
ings will begin anew again.
Considerable Business Transacted at
Monday Evening’s Meeting.
Probably the first time’ in six
months every member of borough
council was present at the regular
meeting of that body on Monday even-
Mr. T. R. Hamilton was present and
called attention te the bad condition
of Decatur alley, and the matter was
referred to the Street committee.
Secretary W. T. Kelly reported that
the uncollected portion of the 1921
water tax duplicate amounting to
$3589.08 had been turned over to the
borough manager by the Keystone
Power company.
The Street committee reported the
collection of $298.00 by the borough
solicitor on the Bishop street paving.
The borough manager reported that in
conference with officials of the High-
way Department an agreement had
been reached regarding the borough’s
share for the repairs and oiling of Al-
legheny, Bishop and Linn streets over
a year ago. The amount is $1117.34
and a motion was passed accepting the
Jepon and authorizing payment of the
The Water committee reported that
all the ditch has been dug for the ex-
tension of the water out over Hali-
moon hill and that the pipe is now be-
ing laid. The committee deemed it
wise to extend the four inch pipe a
distance of 1400 feet, instead of 1100,
which will increase the cost of the job
over the original estimate.
The committee also reported that
the borough manager had collected
$50.99 on the 1920 water duplicate
and requested exoneration of $17.50
in order to clean up that duplicate and
council authorized the same. The
committee also reported that the bor-
ough manager has collected $1541.43
of the balance on the 1921 duplicate
turned over to him. The 1922 dugli-
cate amounting te $11,291.85 and one
quarter’s meter bills aggregating
$1225.35 will be turned over to the
Keystone Power company for collec-
tion by the first of October.
The Fire and Police committee re-
ported the employment of George C.
Glenn as traffic officer on Bishop street
during the hours the children are
going to or from school, or a total of
four hours a day. The committee also
reported that Elmer Yerger had re-
signed as borough policeman and Wil-
liam Bottorf had been selected by the
committee as his successor. Council
ratified the selection.
The Finance committee requested
renewal of notes for $1000, $2000,
$1000, $1000, $2000 and $3000, and or-
ders for interest to cover same. The
committee also presented the check of
tax collector Herbert Auman for
$3225.25 for taxes collected on the
1922 duplicate.
Mr. Waite entered complaint about
the actions of one of the policemen in
entering his store on south Water
street and notifying one of his cus-
tomers to remove his car, which was
parked on the side of the street. He
claimed that such acts, if persisted in,
would hurt his business and further
declared that the car had not been
there over five minutes. Mr. Flack
stated that he and the policeman had
both timed the car and it had been
there over ten minutes. The Fire and
Police committee were instructed to
have the police exercise proper judg-
ment as to the parking of cars on said
street and the time allowed before
warning the drivers to move on.
Regarding the complaint as to boys
congregating in front of the Scenic
the Fire and Police committee report-
ed that the youngsters merely make
fun of the police. The question was
then raised as to whether it is the
borough’s duty to break up the prac-
tice or the manager of the Scenic to
keep the pavement clear. The matter
was finally referred to the Fire and
Police committee for consultation with
the borough solicitor.
Mr. Emerick stated that now that
the public schools are in session boys
attending the High school building
are playing around the old steam
heating plant and climbing onto the
buildings, which are so rotten and di-
lapidated that they are very danger-
ous, and he urged council to take some
definite action toward getting rid of
the nuisance. He was informed that
council had placed the matter in the
hands of the Special committee and
borough solicitor with power, and they
have full authority to take any action
deemed expedient.
Myr. Emerick called attention to the
fact that street signs should be put
up, not only signs with the names of
the streets but signs showing stran-
gers passing through town the way to
surrounding towns. Considerable dis-
cussion followed as to just what kind
of signs would be best and where they
should be placed, and the matter was
finally referred to the Street commit-
tee and borough manager.
Mr. Emerick also called attention
to the bad condition of High street be-
tween Spring street and the Spring
creek bridge. Borough manager Sei-
bert stated that it is his intention to
repair the street as soon as he can get
to it, but he has been kept busy on
other work. This led Mr. Emerick to
suggest that he put a foreman on each
job so that it will not be necessary for
him to stay permanently on one job to
see that the work is done. Mr. Sei-
bert stated that he has been trying to
find men suitable for such positions
but has been unable to get the right
The question of policemen firing
boilers during the winter season was
discussed and it was the unanimous
opinion of council that they should not
be allowed to fire any boilers except
those at the two fire houses, where po-
lice headquarters have now been es-
tablished, and the Fire and Police
committee was notified to so instruct
the police.
Mr. Emerick further called atten-
tion to the fact that many drivers of
cars fail to observe the rights of oth-
er drivers at cross streets, as pre-
scribed by the State highway laws,
which give the man on the right the
right of way at all times. As an il-
lustration: If a car is going up High
street towards the Diamond and
another car going north on Spring
street, the Spring street car has the
right of way when the two cars reach
the intersection of High and Spring
streets. But if the Spring street car
is going south between Howard and
High then the High street car has the
right of way.
Report was made that the boys per-
sist in the habit of coasting down
Spring street on bicycles, express
wagons, ete., crossing Linn street at
High speed and they are in constant
danger of being run down by cars.
The Fire and Police committee was in-
structed to caution the boys of their
Residents of east Curtin street some
time ago requested council to estab-
lish a curb line on each side of that
thoroughfare and also give a grade for
pavement, but so far nothing defi-
nite has been done and the president
of council instructed the Street com-
mittee and borough manager to go on
the ground and be prepared to make
a recommendation at the next meet-
ing of council.
Bills to the amount of $2501.10 were
approved for payment after which
council adjourned.
Major Hastings Now at Soldier’s
Home at Erie.
Major William H. Hastings, a
brother of the late Governor Daniel
H. Hastings, who was released from
the eastern penitentiary early in July
after serving nine years of a twelve
year sentence for shooting his nephew
by marriage, Ross A. Hickok, of Har-
risburg, was taken from Philadelphia
to Erie last Friday and placed in the
soldier's home at that place. Major
Hastings’ release from the peniten-
tiary was secured through the activi-
ties of the woman’s relief corps of
the G. A. R. He is eighty years old
and his last days will be spent at the
soldier’s home.

Methodists to Dedicate Building at
Penn State.
Tax-supported colleges are neces-
sarily limited in what they can do for
the religious care of students, but de-
nominational enterprise is trying to
meet the full needs of the situation.
The Methodist Episcopal church at
Pennsylvania State College has com-
pleted the first unit of a building, to
cost one hundred thousand dollars,
and to be used in meeting the re-
ligious and social needs of Methodist
students and others affiliated with St.
Paul’s church of which Rev. Robert
C. Peters is the pastor and Rev Harry
F. Babcock the student pastor. The
first unit now completed provides
class rooms for religious instruction,
an assembly room, a gymnasium, and
auditorium. It is built of native lime-
stone to correspond with the church
building which it adjoins.
Bishop William F. McDowell," of
Washington, D. C.; Bishop Francis J.
McConnell, of Pittsburgh; secretaries
W. F. Sheldon and E. M. Conover, and
president J. M. Thomas, of State Col-
lege, will be the principal speakers at
the dedicatory services which will be
held Tuesday, October 3rd, when
Methodist preachers and laymen from
all over the State will gather at State
College for the formal opening.
Knights Templar Had Big Time at
State College.
Upwards of two hundred Knights
Templar, with their wives and lady
friends created a spectacular event at
State College yesterday, the occasion
being the first annual field day since
the world war of the Tenth division
of Pennsylvania, which includes the
commanderies at Lewistown, Hunt-
ingdon, Philipsburg and Bellefonte.
The Knights journeyed to State Col-
lege by automobile and created no lit-
tle interest among the people of the
town as well as the student body.
Most of the Knights were resplend-
ent in glittering uniforms and full re-
galia and the parade at two o’clock
was a very imposing spectacle, espe-
cially as it was led by Wetzler’s band
of Milesburg in their new uniforms.
The Knights marched to old Beaver
field where they were inspected by the
division commander, Charles T. Der-
ick, of Huntingdon; the grand gener-
alissimo, Arthur D. Bacon, of Harris-
burg, representing the grand com-
mander, and the grand junior warden,
Boyd A. Musser, of Scranton, who is a
member of the Bellefonte Com-
Following the parade and review
the visiting Knights were turned over
to the College authorities and escort-
ed to various points of interest at the
big institution of learning. At six
o’clock the entire delegation was serv-
ed with a delicious supper by the wom-
en of the Presbyterian church. At
8:30 o’clock a reception and dance was
held in the College armory, and it was
quite late when the affair broke up
and all departed for their homes feel-
ing that the field day had been a suc-
cess and pleased with their reception
and entertainment at the College.
The Bellefonte Commandery were
hosts of the gathering and as many
residents of the College and members
of the faculty are members of this
Commandery they did everything pos-
sible to make the day one of good fel-
lowship for all. The present officers
of the local Commandery are as fol-
lows: Commander, James R. Barlett;
generalissimo, Charles E. Garbrick;
captain general, Thomas W. Mason;
recorder, George T. Bush; treasurer,
William B. Rankin; trustees, Wilson
S. Sholl, George T. Bush and A. C.
Rev. T. W. Young Relieved as Chap-
lain of Western Penitentiary.
On Sunday afternoon when Rev. T.
W. Young journeyed to the western
penitentiary to perform his regular
duties and conduct his customary
preaching services he was met by Rev.
C. M. Miller, chaplain of the peniten-
tiary at Pittsburgh, who told him that
it was his unpleasant duty to inform
Him that his services were at an end,
and that he (Rev. Miller) would con-
duct the afternoon services. Pressed
for a reason for such a summary dis-
missal Rev Miller stated that he had
been given to understand it was be-
cause of the fact that Rev. Young was
not in harmony with some of the poli-
cies being carried out at the institu-
Rev. Young was appointed chaplain
of the western penitentiary at Rock-
view six and a half years ago by war-
den John Francies and during prac-
tically all of that time has lived in
Bellefonte. He has formed many
warm friendships among the people
of the town because of his geniality,
kind disposition and high christian
character. To these friends and the
public at large his abrupt dismissal as
chaplain of the penitentiary seems in-
explicable. He has always been faith-
ful and sincere in the discharge of his
duties, and we have every reason to
believe was revered by the hundreds
of inmates of the institution.
Opening of the Opera House.
Wednesday night, October 4th, is
the date set for the opening of the
legitimate show season at the opera
house, when a New York cast and
chorus of the “Shuffle Along” compa-
ny will be seen. This great musical
comedy extravaganza carries fifty-one
of the country’s greatest colored tal-
ent and has just finished its two year’s
run at the 63rd Street theatre, New
York. “Shuffle Along” carries its
own ten piece orchestra, which is a
knockout and is without doubt one of
the best attractions of the season.
The singing and dancing is far above
the average and soft shoe, buck and
wing and excentric dances are the best
seen in many a day. Their quartet is
mighty hard to beat. Some of the
best musical numbers are “Love Will
Find a Way,” which is put over by
Miss Blanche Thompson, soprano, and
Theodore MacDonald, tenor. “Ban-
danna Days,” “I'm Wild About Har-
ry,” and “Mary Ann From Mary-
land,” are also very clever. “The Pa-
trol,” a dramatization of a midnight
charge over the top, written by the
late Lieut. James Europe and present-
ed by Al Baldwin, is a specialty of
high merit.
The prices for this attraction will
be 50 cents, $1.00, $1.50 and a few
choice seats at $2.00. Watch next
week’s paper for details.

nia Railroad company, and has special du-
ties in the general manager's office at

and detailed for special constructive work
during the war with offices in Philadelphia
and railroad operation has been so dis-
turbed ever since that it has been neces-
sary to continue the special assignment he
has had. Time has changed him little in
appearance and certainly none in nature
for Reub’s is one of those happy ones that
