Official Vote on Congress and State
The Clearfield Progress last week
had considerable fun at the expense
of Centre county officials because the
Congressional and State Senatorial re-
turn judge failed to turn up in that
place on Tuesday to compute the offi-
cial vote cast in the districts. Sec-
tion 1 Article XXVIII of the election
laws of Pennsylvania provides that
the “return judges for each Congres-
sional and Senatorial district shall
meet on the Tuesday following the
election to compute the vote in the dis-
trict,” but Centre county officials evi-
dently overlooked that fact and the
man appointed by the court, John G.
Love Esq., did not go over until Wed-
nesday. The other return judges were
Lester M. Hackett, of Cameron coun-
ty; Harry R. Evans, of Clearfield
county, and E. A. Studholm, of Mec-
Kean county. The official vote in the
district on Congress was as follows:
Swoope Snyder Kane
Cameron - 836 468 197
Centre - 5231 5205 385
Clearfield - T7044 6391 1302
McKean - 3817 2228 1957
*16928 14292 4041
*In Mr. Swoope’s vote are included those
he received on the Socialist ticket, 9 in
Cameron county, 65 in Centre, 305 in Clear-
field and 116 in McKean, a total of 405
The State Senatorial count was as
1157 *13840
*Mr. Betts received 39 Prohibition votes
in Clearfield county which are included in
his total.
The official count throughout the
State shows that eight women, all Re-
publicans, will have seats in the low-
er house at Harrisburg at the next
Centre - -
session of the Legislature. They are
as follows:
Alegheny county—Miss Helen
Butler county—Miss Gertrude Mac-
Cambria county—Miss Sarah M.
Chester county—Miss Martha G.
Crawford county—Miss Alice M.
Philadelphia—Mrs. Martha G. Spei-
ser, Mrs. Lillie H. Pitts and Mrs. Ro-
sa S. de Young.

County Teachers Gave Liberally to
State College Fund.
Centre county now leads all other
Pennsylvania counties in the amount
subscribed to The Pennsylvania State
College emergency fund, with a cred-
ited total of $67,622.15.
One of the most encouraging fea-
tures of the Centre county campaign,
came last Thursday when the school
teachers of the county, gathered at
their annual institute, contributed
$2,200. This sum will be increased in
a few days when a 100 per cent. par-
ticipation on the part of the teachers
is expected. Professor D. A. Ander-
son, who has charge of this feature of
the State campaign, presented the
project to the teachers at the Belle-
fonte gathering and it met with in-
stant favor and response.
A movement is under way to com-
plete the county quota by the end of
this week. Less than $10,000 remains
to be raised in the county and under
the direction of Professors J. O. Kel-
ler and O. B. Malin, of the college fac-
ulty, it is expected that the county
will join the list of those “over the
top” within a few days. College of-
ficials look forward to Centre county
going beyond its quota with a wider
margin than any other county. Cam-
bria is now more than twelve per cent.
“over” and an attempt will be made
to better this record in the college
home county.
Almost $45,000 of the county quota
came from college employees; $20,000
from the borough of State College,
and $2,000 from the potato growers.
One subscription for $1,000 was re-
ceived in Bellefonte last week.
Centre county contributors thus far
even exceed those of Allegheny, Cam-
bria and Philadelphia counties, an ex-
cellent record. It is possible that Cen-
tre in the long run will stand up fa-
vorably with Allegheny and Philadel-
phia counties, and if it goes well over
the top may count third in the final
accounting. The workers are out to
secure as high a final rating as pos-
sible and are anxious to make Centre
county the first of the larger quota
counties to finish the job.
I FISHER. — Mrs. Emma Amanda
| Fisher, widow of the late Dr. C. P. W.
Fisher, of Boalsburg, passed away last
Friday night at the home of her sis-
ter, Mrs. John W. Stuart, at State
College, of valvular heart trouble,
following an illness of two weeks.
She had gone to her sister’s home on
a visit, was taken sick and died at the
time above stated.
She was 2a daughter of Daniel and
Elizabeth Hunsinger Musser, early
settlers of Boalsburg, where she was
born on August 25th, 1848, hence had
reached the age of 74 years, 2 months
and 20 days. She was educated in the
public schools of her home town and
at the Boalsburg Academy and on
April 1st, 1866, she married Dr. C. P.
W. Fisher, who served during the Civ-
il war, and they took up their resi-
dence in their native town. There she
spent her entire life and became one
of the best known and most loved
women of the town. Her husband
died in 1886, leaving her with a fami-
ly of young children but she very no-
bly responded to the extra call of du-
ty and gave all of them a good edu-
cation and a start in successful life
pursuits. She was a life-long mem-
ber of the Reformed church and her
daily life was a beautiful example of
her faith in the doctrines of her
church. During the World war she
was an enthusiastic supporter of the
Red Cross and most of her time was
devoted to knitting garments for the
men in the trenches.
Her survivors include five sons, as
follows: John, of Bellefonte; William,
of Wilkes-Barre; Frank H., of Juni-
ata; Charles, of Danville, and George,
of Boalsburg. She also leaves sixteen
grand-children and three great grand-
children, as well as three sisters and
a brother, namely: Mrs. Angeline
Bottorf, of Lemont; Mrs. Elizabeth
Jacobs, of Centre Hall; Mrs. John W.
Stuart, of State College, and John K.
Musser, of Wilkes-Barre.
The remains were taken to her late
home in Boalsburg where funeral
services were held at 10 o’clock on
Tuesday morning by her pastor, Rev.
S. C. Stover. A large concourse of
sorrowing friends followed the re-
mains to their last resting place in the
Boalsburg cemetery. The floral of-
ferings were so profuse that they
were carried to the grave by twelve
women, intimate friends of the de-

day night at the home of her son, Dr.
P. Hoffer Dzale, at State College, as
the result of chronic heart trouble.

but had been confined to her bed less
than a week.
She was a daughter of Peter and
Lydia Keller Hoffer and was born in
Potter township almost seventy-six
years ago. About a half century ago
she married Josiah Dale and the first
few years of their married life were
spent at Woodland, Clearfield county.
From there they moved to Centre Hall
where she lived until a few years ago
when she went to State College and
had since made her home with her son.
She was a life-long member of the
Reformed church and an exceptionally
kind and good woman.
Her husband met a tragic death up-
on the top of Nittany mountain =a
number of years ago but surviving her
is one son, Dr. Hoffer Dale, and one
sister, Miss Mollie Hoffer, also of
State College. Funeral services were

Bellefonte, and Rev. Martin, of the
Presbyterian church, State College,
after which the remains were taken
by auto hearse to Centre Hall for

Big Blast Put Off by Chemical Lime |
Co. on Wednesday.
Six tons of dynamite and two hun- |
dred pounds of TNT. were used in a!
big blast put off at 4:45 o'clock on |
Wednesday afternoon at the quarries |
of the Chemical Lime company, up |
Buffalo Run valley, and from thirty to |
forty thousand tons of limestone rock |
were dislodged and shattered, enough
to keep the plant running for many |
months. The blast was put off under
the supervision of representatives of
the Hercules Powder company, and so |
well had it been planned that only a |
rumbling sound was noticeable in
Bellefonte. :
The idea of putting off the blast was |
conceived by the company several |
months ago and when news of the fact
became public considerable alarm was |
felt in some quarters as to the dam- !
age it might do. State officials even
took a hand in the matter by sending |
a man here to see if there was any i
possibility of such a blast damaging |
the Big Spring in Bellefonte, but the |
men who were put in charge of the |
work were confident no such disas- |
trous results would follow.
Nine six-inch holes were drilled
from the top of the cliff to a depth of
ninety-five feet. These holes were
located back some distance from the
face of the cliff and loaded with the
dynamite and TNT. Electrical con-
nections were used in putting off the
blast, and instead of a thundering
noise and a shower of flying rocks
there was a deep, rumbling intonation,
a noticeable vibration of the earth
and the whole face of the cliff in the
quarry was shoved out and shattered
to pieces.

Death Caused by Stove Explosion.
Mrs. Guido C. Boecking, of Tyrone,
but who was well known by many
Bellefonte people, died on Tuesday at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. James
Bergstresser, of Pittsburgh, as the re-
sult of burns and shock sustained in
the explosion of a gas heater in the
bath room. Mrs. Boecking had gone
to the bath room and struck a match
to light the gas when the explosion
occurred. She was badly burned and
this, with the shock, caused her death
in a few hours.
Her maiden name was Foster and
she was born at Mifflinburg. Her hus-
band prior to his death a few years
ago, was one of the leading druggists
of Tyrone. Surviving her are her
daughter, Mrs. Bergstresser, and her
mother, Mrs. Foster, who made her
home with her daughter in Tyrone.
The remains were taken through
Bellefonte yesterday afternoon to
Mifflinburg for burial.

Keystone Players Friday
The first of the series of entertain-
ments to be presented under the au-
spices of the Y. M. C. A. will be given
in “the little theatre at the Y,” Fri-
a life-long member, after which burial | of Henry A. and Eve Bower Mingle day evening, December 1st, the per-
and was born at Aaronsburg seventy-
| four years ago. As a young man he
| studied medicine and for a number of
formance beginning at 8:15 o’ciock.
All of the five performances are be-
ing given by the Keystone players, or
under their direction. The numbers
include high class monologists, magi-
cians, cartoonists, vocal and instru-
mental soloists, and sketches, closing
with a three-act comedy. Tickets for
the entire course are being sold by the
Y. W. girls and members of the Wom-
an’s Auxiliary, at $1.50. Reserved
seats 10 cents extra.
The personnel of the first group of
players includes Helene Fry Hoffman,
musical monologist; Miss Elizabeth
Stopper, violinist; Howard W. Butler,
reader; Miss Isabel Brown, dancer,
and L. C. Townsend, the latter being
the director of the entire course. Mr.
Townsend will play in Bellefonte
three times during the winter, twice
with sketches and once with the com-
edy company.
Helene Fry Hoffman has won a wide
reputation as a reader and actress, be-
ing a graduate of the Emerson school |
of oratory, Boston, and with a wide
experience gained in professional the- |
atrical work. Mr. Butler, a graduate
of Dickinson, has, for the last ten
years, delighted Pennsylvania audienc-
es with his work.
Miss Stopper, who played last sea-
son with a moving picture corporation,
has returned to her first love, the vio-
lin, to which she has devoted several
vears of study in New York city. Miss
Brown comes to Bellefonte from Sun-
bury, where she has been playing with
the Kramer Stock company. She is a
juvenile dancer of unusual ability,
and is equally at home in a speaking
The opening half of the first enter- |
tainment Friday evening, December :
1st, will be solo numbers by these four
artists. The second half will be the
presentation of the famous one-act
English drama, “In Honor Bound.”
In this drama Mr. Townsend plays the
part of Sir George Carlyon, a London
players in this drama.
“In Honor Bound” is a tense story
of domestic life in aristocratic life,
replete with startling climaxes, and |
containing but very little humor. The
players who bring it to Bellefonte
have played their respective rolls
many times before, so a smooth and
finished production is assured.
The other numbers to be presented
later in the season are so varied that
every taste for entertainment will be
gratified. Among the players to be
seen here later is Freddy Walsh, for
several seasons with Bowman’s Min-
strels and later with the Vitagraph
Corporation. Mr. Walsh recently com-
pleted a successful season with stock
productions. Mr. Butler, Miss Stop-
per, Mrs. Hoffman and Mr. Townsend
will also be seen here in later offer-

Hospital Benefit Game.
At 2 p. m. Saturday, November
25th, on Hughes field, the football fans
of Bellefonte will be afforded a treat
extraordinary in the way of a game
between the local High school and the !
North ward collegians. The latter is
composed for the most part of “stars”
from the following schools, colleges
and universities: Princeton, Yale
Lafayette, Williams, Penn State,
Bucknell, Gettysburg, Bellefonte
Academy, St. Lukes, A. E. F. Uni-
versity, and the Great School of Life.
Engagements may prevent the ap-
pearance of Morris and Taylor, of
West Point; Fredericks, of Yale, and
Wilson, of Lafayette, while an injury
in the knee will possibly keep Quigley,
of Williams, from the line up. How-
ever, their places will be filled with
other competent men.
And the flying back-field with Ish-
ler, Moore and Stock, from the High
school faculty, will prove a dangerous
threat against the Varsity line.
As the entire proceeds are to go to
the Bellefonte hospital Mr. Hughes
has kindly offered the use of his field
and some equipment for the players.
25 cents will be the admission and
manager Scott, Princeton, ’17, of the
collegians, guarantees the spectators

; Dental Hygienist Goes to Philipsburg.
Miss Henrietta Waters, graduate of
the Rochester Dental Hygiene school,
who has been deing dental hygiene
work in the public and parochial
schools, left Wednesday for Philips-
burg, where she will continue the
same work in the schools there.
It is a matter for regret that Miss
Waters could not have remained long-
er in our schools as her services were
muchly needed but the tuberculosis
committee had funds to support the
work only two months and Miss
Waters engagement had to terminate
this week. From Philipsburg she will
go to State College.
! The writer is a tax payer and knows
: full well the constant appeal for mon-
ey through the various drives, ete.,
| but, glancing over the list, is there one
. investment quite so good as promot-
ing health and preventing disease?
: The Red Cross nurse and health-edu-
{ cation work of the Tuberculosis com-
mittee bring a bigger return to the
community for the money invested
than any other agency and yet how
very small the amount needed to
finance this work as compared with
that needed to support the hospital.
Bear in mind that the more money
spent in preventing disease, the less
there will be needed to support hos-
pitals, asylums and other similar in-
The only single contributor to the
dental hygiene fund was Miss Lyde
Thomas, who, after hearing an appeal
for several different causes, decided
the most worthy to be dental hygiene
work in our own schools and, unsolic-
ited, sent a contribution for its main-
tenance. May the day be hastened
when a school nurse, visiting commu-
nity nurse, dental clinic and whatever
contributes to the. physical welfare of
our community will be supported as
part of the town budget rather than
by reluctantly-asked-for contributions

Woman’s Club Program for the Year
All of the lectures for the Belle-
fonte Woman's club had not been defi-

The Left Hind Foot of a Rabbit
Caught in the Dark of the Moon
Is claimed to have much influence
for good. If caught in a graveyard
its power against evil is unlimited.
If it had the power to restore over-
