Man of an hour supremely dread,
Seer of a day decreed to come,
Priest to a world whose faith had fled,
Heir to its crown of martyrdom.
A voice approved of men who weep,
A pledge of hope from lips of fate,
A spring of dawn from out the deep,
A noon of peace from night of hate.
A dream! God dreamed in days of eld
And wrought his works in majesty ;
And well, through all, the dream was held
Where God’s own self is history.
Long is the test of time's forsooth
And long the wait of right on earth;
White is the light that lightens truth,
And fierce the fires that fashion worth.
But God fulfills himself at length,
And wisdom justifies her ways
And builds with arches Lewn in strength
The house begun in ancient days.
Past are the selfish screeds of men,
The party phrase, the fugle cry;
High up the page a hermit's pen
Has set a name that shall not die.
The moment's multitudes disperse
And barren leave the breach they trod:
But living ages shall rehearse
This fame: “A man was sent from God.”
—By Bishop H. M. DuBose, Charlottes-
Startling Automobile Facts.
An esteemed Philadelphia contem-
porary makes the startling statement
that “the records of the State are so
kept that no one who tries can discov-
er how many automobiles are owned
by the State, who uses them, for what
purpose they are used, how much they
cost in repairs, or how much it costs
to keep them supplied with gasoline.
“Let us hope,” adds our optomistic
contemporary, “that the Pinchot ad-
ministration will immediately end this
state of affairs.” A “consummation
devoutly to be wished,” certainly, but
how is it to be achieved? Larry
Eyre in control of the Senate affords
no promise and the organization of
the House gives no greater encourage-
ment to the hope.
This automobile “exhibit” in the
“mess at Harrisburg” was brought in-
to public notice in a peculiar manner.
A subordinate in one of the depart-
ments had an accident, some months
ago, through reckless driving, on a
highway in Cumberland county. In-
quiry revealed the fact that the ma-
chine was owned by the State and of
a very expensive type. The driver,
a relative of an organization favorite,
was identified and the inquiry ended,
though it is said the incident cost a
nomination for Govrnor of Pennsyl-
vania. All sources of information
concerning State owned automobiles
were closed to the public in conse-
quence, however, and thus some inter-
esting facts are forever buried.
There are some general facts con-
cerning the State owned automobiles
accessible to persons sufficiently cur-
ious to pursue the subject. The rec-
ords show that the State owns about
one hundred passenger cars and sev-
eral hundred trucks, most of them in
service in the Highway Department.
Shortly after the close of the war the
federal government presented to the
State a lot of trucks suitable for high-
way work but the State parked them
through a severe winter in open lots
and let them rust to death. Those re-
sponsible preferred to buy trucks rath-
er than accept gifts for one reason or
another. Meantime the repair bills
and gasoline bills are contracted and
paid and nobody knows why.

GIBBS.—With the passing away of
Mrs. Sarah Frances Gibbs, at her
home in Milesburg on Saturday after-
noon, one of the last links in the chain
to Polish nobility has been severed and
only one descendant is left of Count
Charles Treziyulny, who as an exile
came to this country from Poland in
1791. Mrs. Gibbs was a victim of that
dread disease, tuberculosis, and
though she made a brave fight the
struggle ended when she calmly pass-
ed away at three o'clock on Saturday
For centuries upon centuries Cen-
tral Europe has been the hotbed of
the world for political chicanery and
in the latter part of the seventeenth
century Poland was the seat of in-
trigue, plots and counter-plots.
Among the active members of the
young nobility was Count Charles
Treziyulny, whose activities eventual-
ly resulted in his banishment from his
home land and he emigrated to the
United ‘States. He was an engineer
of ability and was identified with the
early settlement of Philipsburg. He
was one of the first canal commission-
ers (in 1824) of the State and a
staunch advocate of river improve-
ment. Eventually he located in Belle-
fonte and in June, 1833, he was ap-
pointed postmaster here as successor
to Hamilton Humes. He died in 1851
at the age of 94 years. He left two
sons, Henry P., who served a number
of years as deputy surveyor of Centre
county and who died at Milesburg in
1878, and Hyacinth B., who at the
time of his death in 1862 was Street
commissioner and superintendent of
the water works of Bellefonte.
Henry F. married Levina Parker
and one of their children was Sarah
Frances, who was born in Bellefonte,
on almost the exact spot where the
Catholic parochial residence now
stands, seventy-eight years ago. Her
girlhood life was spent here but event-
ually the family moved to Milesburg
and it was there she was united in
marriage to Richard Gibbs, a railroad
carpenter and contractor, who died in
Mrs. Gibbs inherited the family tra-
ditions for political patriotism and
never lost an opportunity to display
her loyalty and love for the country
that proved a haven for her banished
ancestor. She was well educated and
could discuss or write intelligently on
many questions, including political
economy. She became a member of
the Disciple church as a young girl
and always lived a true christian life.
She never had any children and her
only survivor is one brother, H. P. C.
Treziyulny, who occupies the old home
at Milesburg with Miss Olive Shope,
who had been a companion of Mrs.
Gibbs for many years.
The funeral services at 2:30 o’clock |
on Tuesday afternoon were in charge
of the Disciple minister at Milesburg,
assisted by Rev. C. C. Shuey, of Belle-
fonte, the remains being laid to rest |
in the Treziyulny cemetery in Boggs
township. The pall bearers were Har-
ry P. Austin, George H. Yarnell, L.
Frank Mayes, William H. Brown,
Frank Sasserman, James C. Furst and
James K. Barnhart.
HOUSER.—George W. Houser, a
native of Centre county, died at St.
Petersburg, Florida, on Sunday as the

in climate would prove beneficial. He
was recovering slowly when he caught
a cold, which developed into pneumo-
nia, causing his death.
He was a son of Christian and Ma-
ry Houser and was born at Houser-
ville, this county, sixty-five years ago.
His early life was spent there but a
number of years ago he located in Al-
toona where he lived until going to

daughters. He also leaves one brother
and a sister. Burial was made at St.

Governor Pinchot Officially Inaugu-
rated on Tuesday.
Myr, Pinchot became the thirtieth
Governor of the State of Pennsylvania
succeeding William Cameron Sproul,
who escorted the new Governor to the
speakers’ stand, while the great guns
of a National Guard battery boomed
out a salute of seventeen guns.
The traditional ceremonies of the
inauguration of Governors in Penn-
sylvania were followed, while great
crowds filled the space in front of the
capitol, among them many neighbors
and friends of the Pinchot family from
northeastern Pennsylvania and a large
number of foresters and forestry
workers from all over the State who
had gone to the capitol to see their
former chief inducted into office.
Senator Frank A. Smith, chairman
of the inaugural committee, greeted
the incoming and retiring Governors
as they reached the stand. Thomas J.
Garland, Bishop of Philadelphia, in-
voked the blessing. Walter P. Galia-
gher, of the Senate, read the certifi-
cate of election. The oath of office
i was administered to Mr. Pinchot by
i Chief Justice Robert Von Moschzis-
i ker, of Philadelphia.
| Immediately afterward the guns
boomed out their salute and Mr. Pin-
chot began the reading of his address,
which was heard by people in the out-
ermost rings of the great crowd, be-
cause amplifiers had been so placed
that the message was carried every-
Perhaps the most important part of
the address was that part dealing
with the enforcement of the prohibi-
tion laws in which he said:
“This administration will be dry.
The executive mansion will be dry and
the personal practice of the Governor
and his family will continue to be dry,
in conformity to the spirit and letter
of the Eighteenth amendment.
“The law is the law. It is the foun-
dation of order, safety and prosperity
and of the Commonwealth itself.”
Following the reading of the ad-
dress, Governor Pinchot and his party
reviewed a dazzling military and po-
litical parade in which marching clubs
from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seran-
ton and other places took part.
Immediately after the Governor and
his party reviewed the parade, the
new executive went to the Senate
chamber where at 3 o’clock he had a
reception “for the people of Pennsyl-
vania.” Everybody had been invited
and for two hours a steady stream of
voters, men and women in all walks
of life, filed past the forester and
shook his hand. The Governor and
Mrs. Pinchot, and Mr. and Mrs. Davis
shook the hands of every one. It was
a busy day for the Governor, but his
strenuous life and outdoor activities
stood him in good stead and he was
equal to the occasion. At night he
and Mrs. Pinchot attended the inau-
gural ball at the Penn-Harris hotel.
Governor Pinchot’s complete list of
cabinet appointments is as follows:
Clyde L. King, Springfield, Dela-
ware county, Secretary of the Com-

Origin on “Talk Turkey.”
Senator Hiram Johnson, of Califor-
nia, gives this explanation of the ori-
gin of the countrywide expression,
“Two men, a white man and an In-
dian, agreed to hunt together for a
day, and to divide the game at sun-
down. When the dividing time ar-
rived there was no difficulty in appor-

arose when they reached the last pair,

Indications Point to Big Nash Year.
Nash Motors on January 9, had on
hand more orders for delivery this
month than were booked in any pre-
vious month in the history of the
company with the exception of May
and June of last year. The year just
closed was the greatest twelve months
period in the history of the Nash Mo-
tors company. Total sales of Nash
passenger cars in 1922 more than
doubled shipments made the previous
One interesting phase of the 1922
record is that the last six months of
the year eclipsed the first half period
in point of sales. In other words, 1,005
more cars were shipped by the factory
from July 1, to December 31, than
were shipped between January 1 to
June 30, which period included, of
course, the natural spring demand.
January, February and March last
year started the breaking of Nash pre-
vious records with a volume of sales
for that period that exceeded the same
1921 period by more than 51 per cent.
Then followed April and May, months
that made Nash history. The usual
mid-summer let-down had no appre-
ciable effect on the Nash demand with
the result that during these months,
record after record was broken. In
September the automobile industry as
a whole fell off 24 per cent. as against
August and in that month Nash mo-
tors gained 8 per cent. over August.
Improvements and refinements
which began going into Nash cars the
latter part of the year and which have
been completed for the automobile
shows have met with instant approval
on the part of the public with the re-
sult that for months past the demand
has left the factory in an oversold
condition. This has resulted in plant
extension now in process of comple-
—— The deep snow which fell on
Sunday, and which may lay indefi-
nitely, has so completely covered the
ground that game birds, such as wild
turkeys and pheasants, will have a
hard time to get sufficient feed to
keep them alive. Because of this fact
sportsmen should put out feed at
places where it can be found by the
birds, and in quantities sufficient to
| keep the birds alive until the snow
goes away. A few dollar's worth of
corn and grain will keep a good sized
flock over the winter and leave them
lin good shape for the nesting season.
