A defective or broken brake
rigging came very near causing a
serious wreck of the Lehigh-Pennsyl-
vania train on Sunday afternoon. The
tran ran up above Milesburg station
to the switch to back into Bellefonte.
Part of the train took the switch all
right but another part of it picked
the switch and ran down the main
track. Two cars were somewhat mix-
ed up but as the train was moving
slowly the engineer was able to stop |
before any great damage was done,
and nobody was injured. The acci-
dent, however, resulted in considera-
ble delay and Bellefonte passengers
were transferred on the Lewisburg
BIG DEMOCRATIC GATHERING.
State and Local “Candidates Discuss
Issues Last Friday Evening.
One of the biggest political gather-
ings that has been held in Bellefonte
since the days of political clubs and
ced lights was that last Friday even-
ing, held in the court house to hear
ti.e Democratic candidates, both State
and local, discuss the issues of the
pending campaign. While the meet-
ing was held in the court house many
people were unable to get in and were
compelled to go away disappointed be-
cause of their inability to get within
hearing distance of the speakers.
While it was a Democratic meeting,
pure and simple, many prominent Re-
publicans occupied front seats in the
Col. J. L. Spangler presided and in
his always clever and versatile man-
ner introduced the speakers, the first
in order being William I. Betts, can-
didate for State Senator. Right here
it might be stated that it was gener-
ally known that Hon. John A. Mec-
Sparran, the candidate for Governor,
and one whom all present wanted to
hear, could not reach the meeting
much before ten o’clock, but the other
candidates were all so interesting and
discussed the issues in such an enter-
taining manner that nota man or
woman left until the last speaker was
While Mr. Betts is well known by
many Bellefonte people this was the
first opportunity the public had of
hearing him talk and everybody was
impressed with the fact that he would
make a very able representative in
the State Senate.
Mr. Betts was followed by J. Frank
Snyder, of Clearfield county, candi-
date for Congress, who discussed the
issues from a congressional stand-

uel E. Shull, of Monroe county, candi-

The iourth speaker was A. M.
Thompson, of Pittsburgh, candidate
for Secretary of Internal Affiairs, who
spoke in a most convincing manner of
the need of a change in Harrisburg
and the folly of supposing that the
election of Pinchot would bring the
desired change. Mr. Thompson’s talk
was brought to a rather abrupt end
with the arrival of Mr. McSparran at
The gubernatorial candidate, nat-
urally, was the man everybody want-
ed to hear, and no one was disap-
pointed in waiting for him. In a calm
and dispassionate manner he told of
the “mess” at Harrisburg, running
‘through every branch of the admin-
istration, and showed how a thorough
housecleaning was necessary if the
people are to be relieved of their
present burden of taxes and the State
treasury put in a position to meet all
obligations. Mr. McSparran display-
ed none of the braggadocio so notice-
able in all of Pinchot’s speeches but
presented facts and arguments that
carried conviction to all who heard
him. His talk was brief, not over
half -an hour, but he said enough in
that time to convince the average voter
that the time was about ripe for a
change in the administration at Har-

Meek, candidate for the Legislature,

ed States Senator, was introduced as

Exhibition of Chinese Pheasants.
Early in the summer game warden
Mosher, of Bellefonte, received a con-
signment of Chinese pheasant eggs
for hatching purposes which he dis-
tributed among bird lovers in this vi-
cinity. Among those who volunteered
to try a hatching was E. L. Hollo-
baugh, of Coleville. He took twelve
eggs and put them under a hen and
eleven pheasants hatched out, being
the best record made by any one. The
little pheasants were left with the hen
for a period of six weeks then put in
a pen by themselves and given the
most natural food possible. Four of
them died but Mr. Hollobaugh suc-
ceeded in raising seven of them. Two
or three of them have been given
away to pair with other hatchings
while Mr. Hollobaugh has the others
still in his possession.
In order to show bird lovers what a
beautiful specimen the Chinese pheas-
ant is he will put a pair of them in the
window of Miller’s hardware store on
Allegheny street for two days only,
Thursday and Friday, October 26th
and 27th. Mr. Hollobaugh will hold
the birds in captivity until the close of
the hunting season, and then if there
are prospects of a hard winter may de-
cide to keep them until next spring
and liberate them in time for the nest-
American Legion Drive.
According to the bulletin in the Di-
amond just $2776 have been pledged
in the drive of the Brooks—Doll Post
of the American Legion to raise a
fund sufficient to enable them to pur-
chase a permanent home. As the
property they have in view will cost
$15,000 in cash all persons who took
out pledge cards are requested to re-
turn them as promptly as possible.

— Bellefonte people who have
heard the voice of one of America’s
favorite entertainers, Byron G. Har-
lan, on the phonograph will hawe an
opportunity to see and hear him in
person at Garman’s opera house on
Friday evening, November 3rd, when
he will appear in an entertainment un-
der the auspices of the Woman’s Aux-
iliary of the American Legion. Mr.
Harlan will be accompanied by his
own company of high class artists
and during the evening an opportunity
will be given local singers to sing for
a record which will then be reproduc-
ed for the entertainment of the audi-
ence. This, in itself, should prove a
big drawing card.
Somewhere within the travel
distance of the “Watchman” is a
lonely, middle-aged woman look-
ing for a home where services
will be appreciated and amply
rewarded. This is not a servant
girl proposition. A suitable com-
panion and helper in the home is
what we want and will pay for.
We are Pennsylvanians and the
woman acceptable to us will con-
sider this home her home and con-
form accordingly. Address

——The football management of the
Bellefonte Academy has decided to
have all home games, so far as possi-
ble, on Fridays hereafter, instead of
Saturdays, as it will give the mer-
chants and everybody employed in
stores and business places a better op-
portunity to attend. Saturday after-
noons are almost unavoidably busy
ones in the stores and it is impossible
for any one to get away long enough
to attend a game. Friday afternoons,
however, the stores are not so busy
and a portion of the working force
can get off for a football contest. The
first Friday game will be on October
27th, when St. Francis college, of Lo-
retto, will be the Academy’s oppo-
nents. Keep this date in mind and ar-
range to be there.
——M. F. McCoy, service man for
the Beatty Motor company, left on
Sunday for Pittsburgh, where he will
take a two weeks’ Lincoln service
course at the Pittsburgh branch of the
Ford Motor Co. This course is being
taught by an expert mechanic from
the Detroit factory, and consists of
the entire dissembling and reassem-
bling of the Lincoln car. Since the
Lincoln factory has been taken over
by the Ford Motor Co. many changes
have been made in regard to the serv-
icing of this car. Within a short per-
iod of time it will be possible for own-
ers to stop at any of the 9000 author-
ized Ford service stations throughout
the country and receive expert Lin-
coln service at standardized prices.
Lincoln owners in this vicinity will be
pleased to learn of the arrangements
being made by the Beatty Motor Co.
to give them necessary advice and
service for the efficient and economical
operation of their cars.
American Lime & Stone Co. Em-
ployees Stage a Coon Hunt.
The new men with the American
Lime & Stone company—the men
who came here from Wilmington,
Del., and other eastern points when
the A. L. & S. Co was amalgamated
with the Charles Warner Co., are rap-
idly becoming assimilated. In fact
there are some of them who already
believe that they have an actual ac-
quaintance with Centre county wood-
lands and mountains.
Consequently a few of them in the
persons of George Purcell, Harry
Taylor, George Bingaman and Ed.
Markley, with John Hoy and George
Stine, of Waddle, staged a ’coon hunt
for last Saturday night, with the
Bald Eagle mountain as the founda-
tion of the hunt. The gentlemen
from the east were probably thinking
of ’coons in the melon patch and fig-
ured that hunting Centre county
’coons would be something similar.
The four men first mentioned above
motored to Waddle where they were
joined by Messrs. Hoy and Stine with
a full equipment of firearms, lanterns
and an old bull dog represented to be
a helluva dog on ’coons.
The party went into the mountains
in the neighborhood of the old Julian
pike and followed the dog. Twice
the big canine showed terrific symp-
toms of having treed something but
after one of the men climbed the tree
without finding anything they con-
cluded the dog had barked up the
After wandering around an hour or
two without any show of coons the
men became discouraged and began to
discuss the advisability of returning
home but all of them had lost the
sense of direction and they did not
know which way to go. The result
was they wandered around on the
mountain until the gray streak of
dawn on Sunday morning before they
got their bearings, and by the time
they got off the mountain and back to
Bellefonte it was 6:30 o’clock, and
they hadn’t even smelled ’coon.
Who Will be the Harvest Queen?
The race is now on for the election
of a Harvest Queen for the Elks Hal-
low-een’ carnival, which will be held
on Tuesday evening, October 81st.
The contest last year proved very ex-
citing and there is every reason to be-
lieve it will be just as interesting this
But the Queen will only be one fea-
ture of the big carnival. Every effort
will be made to havel/the parade this
year the biggest and best of any pre-
vious carnival. Last year the rain in-
terfered to a great extent with the pa-
rade, but rain don’t fall every Hallow-
In order to make the gathering a
success, however, it will be necessary
for the public to take an active inter-
est in the affair. The carnival is not
designed for Bellefonte people only,
but for Centre county residents gen-
erally. Surrounding towns are in-
vited to send delegations. Many val-
uable prizes will be awarded for the
best costumes in various lines, the
best and most characteristic floats,
ete. If you have not already started
your costume begin now, as only elev-
en more days intervene in which to
As an extra inducement to get into
the Mummer’s parade it might be
mentioned that fifty-seven merchants
and business men of Bellefonte have
put up prizes and all of them will be
worth going after. They will include
most everything imaginable including
a ton of coal, a barrel of flour, 25
pounds of sugar, electric iron, wear-
ing apparel, candy, etc. Watch for
complete list next week.
An Artistic Treat.
The concert given in the Presby-
terian chapel, last Friday evening, was
indeed an artistic treat—and it was
gratifying to see how appropriate was
the setting; the chapel had been very
attractively decorated with autumn
leaves, and the Steinway grande pia-
no elicited words of warm praise from
The performance of the two young
artists in their program of original
composition was not only very enjoy-
able as “concord of sweet sound,” but
most interesting as an example of
what the western part of our State is
doing in music; and enlightening, in
giving us an idea of what the federat-
ed clubs in our State and country are
working towards, namely: The devel-
opment of young American talent and
the building up through it of an
American school of music.
Dancing and Cards.
A committee of ladies has secured
the use of the Elks’ home for the pur-
pose of giving a benefit for the Belle-
fonte hospital. The time will be
Thursday evening, November 9th.
The attractions will be ecards, includ-
ing progressive five hundred, bridge
