    Circulating Library Opening.
The committee of the Women’s Aux-
iliary of the Y. M. C. A., who have
charge of cataloguing the library
books, will have them ready for dis-
tribution by Saturday, January 20th.
The back portion of the community
room has been assigned them for li-
brary use and cases with glass doors
will be provided to keep the books
free of dust and from being disar-
ranged when the library is not open.
A total of about twelve hundred books
have been assembled from the ex-
tinct book club, the Y. M. C. A. library
and the books given at the time of
the book shower last year. It is the
plan of the committee to add new
books as funds from memberships
warrant it. These books will be kept
in a separate section and be classed as
“seven day books.” ‘Other books will
be allowed to be kept for fourteen
days. After that a fine of one cent a
day will be charged. For seven day
books, a fee of five cents a day will be
charged on over-due books.
The committee are much indebted
to Miss Alice Wilson and Mr. Isaac
Mitchell for the interest and assist-
ance they have taken in making it pos-
sible to adjust the bock club interests
so that the library may be placed at
the disposal of the public.
The annual membership fee will be
$3.00, and those who do not wish to
take out annual memberships may
draw books for twenty-five cents a
copy, subject to the regular rules.
The library will be open on Tuesday
and Saturday afternoons, from 2 to 5,
until the demand is such as to require
additional periods. The reference li-
brary will be catalogued and pre-
pared for use as soon as possible.
There will be in the neighborhood of
a thousand books in this section in ad-
dition to the excellent Rhoads memor-
ial reference library already in use in
the Y. M. C. A.

“He-Men” as Character Builders.
A very nice compliment was paid
in the Pittsburgh Times of Sunday,
January 8th, to the splendid work that
is being done by the Bellefonte Acad-
emy and other such preparatory
schools in directing boys aright dur-
ing the impressionable age—the for-
tunate character building period in
their lives. Among cther things that
Mr. Chester L. Smith had in his
“Sport Shafts” column was the fol-
“It is such he-men as Peck, athlet-
ic coach at Culver military academy,
and “Sunny Jim” Marks, of Kiski, and
Jimmy Hughes, of Bellefonte, who are
responsible for the correct physical
and mental training of our youth. And
it is to their everlasting credit that
the American college man is the high
type of sportsman that he is.”
——On Sunday night something
went wrong with the furnace in the
home of Mr. and Mrs. W. Henry Tay-
lor, on Spring street, with the unfor-
tunate result that the house became
polluted with an accumulation of coal
gas. Fortunately Mr. Taylor awak-
ened before becoming overpowered by
the fumes and was able to get to the
windows and open them to clear the
house of the poisonous gas, but at
that every one in the house had in-
haled a sufficient quantity of the gas
to make them quite ill. In fact, it
was a very narrow escape from as-
——The “Watchman” has received
from Major William H. Hastings a
menu of the meals served at the Penn-
sylvania soldiers’ and sailors’ home at
Erie on Christmas day—breakfast,
dinner and supper—and we’ll venture
the assertion that the average old sol-
dier outside the home did not have
anything better than was served at
the Erie institution that day. And we
sincerely hope that every man there
was in shape physically to do justice
to the spread.
——William Jodon, living just north
of Bellefonte, is sure that the mean-
est man in all creation is living in this
section somewhere, and he would give
a good cigar to learn his identity. The
individual in question stole his entire
supply of meat, the pork from two
nice hogs, from his smoke house one
evening last week.

The United Brethren church extends
Sincere greeting to her friends.
The revival meetings now are on,
And we invite you all to come;
Not just to hear the Miss Monroe,
Who is here from Buffalo;
But to sing and praise His name
Who is always just the same.
Every night at half past seven
We begin our praise to heaven.
Back to God they’re coming now,
Humbly at His feet they bow.
Will you be among the number
To be awakened from your slumber?
Or don’t you feel your need of Him,
But rather love to go in sin.
If you think you are a christian,
We would ask, what is your mission,
Do you pray and read the bible;
Love our Christ and hate all evil ?
Yes, yes, to Him we will Ye true,
And for our God we’ll dare and do.

Pinchot Appoints “a Friend” Attorney
Philadelphia, Jan. 8.—George W.
Woodruff, of Philadelphia, a long time
personal friend of and co-worker with
Governor-elect Gifford Pinchot, was
announced today by the Governor-
elect as having been selected for At-
torney General of Pennsylvania under
the incoming administration. The ap-
pointment did not come as a surprise
to those who have known the intimate
relations between the Governor-elect
and Mr. Woodruff.
Mr. Woodruff was a classmate of
Mr. Pinchot at Yale and for years has
been associated with him in the na-
tional conservation movement. Dur-
ing his college days he was a star ath-
lete, having been a member of the
Yale varsity football crew and track
teams. He was once coach of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania football squad $1
and originator of the famous Wood-
ruff “guards back” play.
Mr. Woodruff was chief law officer
in the United States forestry service
during the Roosevelt administration.
Later he was appointed assistant At-
torney General for the Department of
the Interior and served for a time as
acting secretary of the interior. He
was a member of the Roosevelt “Ten-
nis cabinet” and at one time was
United States district judge in Ha-
waii. When Mr. Pinchot was appointed
head of the State forestry department
by Governor Sproul he took Mr.
Woodruff into the department with
him as chief of the bureau of land.
Mr. Woodruff is a native of Susque-
henna county and is fifty-eight years
Other appointments made by the
Governor-elect included the following:
Dr. Ellen Potter, Philadelphia, to
be commissioner of public welfare,
succeeding Dr. John Baldy, Philadel-
A. Nevin Detrich, Chambersburg, to
be superintendent of public printing.
Peter G. Cameron, Wellsboro, coin-
missioner of banking, to succeed him-
Major Lynn G. Adams, Scranton,
superintendent of state police, to suc-
ceed himself.
Dr. Clyde L. King, of Swarthmore,
as Secretary of the Commonwealth.
The Governor offered to re-appoint
Fred Rasmussen, of State College, but
that gentleman declined a re-appoint-
ment as he will shortly become presi-
dent of a Pennsylvania—Maryland
joint land bank which will have offi-
ces in Harrisburg.
Art and Money Making.
The old theory that when art turns
to making money, either to satisfy
need or to gratify desire, it is near
death is open to debate. Too mdny
young people who have determined to
devote their life to art mistrust the
“world’s coarse thumb” and the judg-
ment of those who pay money for
things that please them. The first
thing for any young artist or writer
«0 understand is that he must have
something to suy tdat will appeal to
ordinary human beings. If he cen
manage to express himself through
his art and still keep a certain amount
+7 liking for the common people and
anderstanding of them, he needn't
‘ear for the outcome.—Youib’s Com
Glacier “Got a Movs.”
Chased by a glacier which sudderly
came to activity after having been in-
active for years, a trio of Minnesota
geological student climbers hurriedly
abandoned camp. The students went
to Glacier National park to study
Heaven's Pe: «lacier, pitching their
camp 50 feet om the end ‘of the ice
wall. They were awakened by a dull
rumbling and with daylight they dis-
covered a widening crack some 200
feet back on the glacier and noted
that the wall of ice was advancing.
They hurriedly moved and half an
hour later the ice floe had covered
their camp site. The ice moved about
200 feet down the valley, advancing
about one foot a minute.
Island Now Sheep Pasture.
The island of Cuttyhunk, in Buz-
zard’s bay, is to be turned into a sheep
pasture. The head of the American
Woolen company is now the owner of
the greater part of Cuttyhunk, and
this is a new venture of his in turn-
ing the island pastures over to sheep.
Neighboring islands have long been
used for sheep pasturing, the animais
running wild for the greater part or
the year, with a little extra feeding
during the winter.
