The Music Club.
There will be a concert on March
12th (Monday), in the Presbyterian
chapel, at 8:15 o'clock. All are in-
vited. The program will consist of
orchestral music by the State College
club, the musicians being chosen from
the best of the State College men, as-
sisted by Mrs. Packenham, an English
pianist and a member of the Royal
Academy of London. There will also
be piano solos by Miss Mary Kestler,
of Millheim, a young woman of talent
and protege of Fritz Kreistler.
The music club also wishes to call
attention to the meeting of the State
convention of the Pennsylvania Fed-
eration of Music Clubs to be held at
State College April 10th, 11th and
12th. At this convention the federa-
tion offers prizes to young American

financed in their studies and eventu-
ally launched on a professional career.
Miss Kestler, who will play here on
the 12th, will be presented as a con-
testant by the Bellefonte club.
Because of its membership in the
Federation, the Bellefonte club has
been able to present three excellent
concerts to the public, the artists giv-
ing their services gratis. There will
be three more, the one on March 12th,
and later one by the Harrisburg club,
and a recital by Miss Day Blair, of
Philadelphia. At these three con-
certs, in order to defray incidental ex-
penses, an offering will be taken.

Holstein Breeders, Attention!
Breeders of Holstein cattle will be
interested to know that a meeting of
all Centre county farmers who are in-
terested in Holstein cattle will be held
on Tuesday, March 6th, at 1:30 p. m.,
in ‘the Farm Bureau office, at Belle-
fonte. Mr. Allen N. Crissey, field
representative of the Holstein Fries-
ian association, of America, for this
district, Pennsylvania, New Jersey
and Delaware, will be present and will
have some interesting and valuable
suggestions for the promotion and im-
provement of the Holstein which is
by far the predominating breed of
dairy cattle in Centre county. If you
are a breeder of Holsteins, present,
past or prospective, whether you own
100 pure breds or one grade, or just
merely have a warm feeling for the
“black and white” dairy cow you will
want to hear Mr. Crissey on March
Beautiful Cut Flowers for

Bellefonters in the Railroad Service.
The March issue of the Tyrone Di-
vision Special, a booklet published
every once in a while in the interest
of safety first on the railroads, is on
our desk. Among the personal refer-
ences to employees of the division we
find the following paragraphs about
Bellefonte workers for the Pennsy:
Helen E. Beezer, clerk at Belle-
fonte freight station, is spoken of by
her’ office force as being a genuine
good fellow. She is also an out of
door enthusiast and drives her own
big Six.
D. A. Barlett, clerk at the Belle-
fonte freight, told us he liked the last
issue of the Special a whole lot.
Words of appreciation are ever cheer-
ing, Dave.
The first issue of “The Penn-
sylvania News,” a localized publica-
tion for the eastern region of the
Pennsylvania railroad system, reached
our desk last week. It is designed to
bring about a more intimate acquain-
tance between the great army of em-
ployees of this greatest of all railroad
systems and the general management
and office forces all along the line.
And judging from the contents of the
first issue we believe it will fulfill its
mission. Every division of the entire
eastern system is represented in its
columns with breezy items of local in-
terest to the employees. The man
who edits the column for the Tyrone
division is Paul M. Goheen, of Tyrone,
but any empleyee is at liberty to send
him anything of interest. The entire
‘contents of the paper are made up of
‘interesting railroad stories and per-
sonal items of the employees and of-
fice force of the railroad, which is a
refreshing variation from the custom-
ary corporation paper which is ordi-
narily filled with a mass of statistics
and propaganda that very few take
the trouble to read.

DALE.—Mrs. Matilda Allport Dale,
widow of Dr. J. Y. Dale, for many
years a practicing physician of Le-
mont, died at two o’clock last Friday
morning at the home of her son, Dr.
David Dale, in Bellefonte, of collapse
following a stroke of paralysis some
time ago.
She was a daughter of James and
Matilda Hunter Allport and was born
at Morrisdale, Clearfield county, on
June 23rd, 1845, hence was in her sev-
enty-eighth year. Her ancestry on
both her father and mother’s side can
be traced back to revolutionary stock.
On September 29th, 1870, she married
Dr. Dale, at Philipsburg and they at
once took up their residence at Le-
mont. That was their home until the
death of her husband, and most of the
time since then had been spent among
her children. These are Col. Freder-
ick Allport Dale, of Fort Hamilton,
Brooklyn, N. Y.; Mrs. S. M. Wetmore,
of Florence, S. C.; Dr. David Dale, of
Bellefonte, and Mrs. H. M. Crossman,
of Norristown.
Mrs. Dale was a very unusual wom-
an in that she possessed a combina-
tion of highly developed accomplish-
ments rarely found in one of her sex.
She was a woman of surpassing per-
sonal charm and grace. An ideal
home maker. In business affairs she
might well have advised successful
men and in politics, though the envi-
ronment of her married life was al-
ways the opposite, she was an intense
Democrat. In fact so conversant with
the political situation of the country
did she always keep herself that we
recall few more refreshing or hopeful
discussions than those that it was our
good fortune to have had with her.
Right up to her last illness she was
abreast of the times in all things, a
clear thinking, forceful woman with
a heart overflowing with kindliness
and gracious consideration for all who
came in contact with her.
Funeral services were held at the
Dr. Dale home at four o’clock on Sun-
day afternoon by Rev. M. DePui May-
nard, and on Monday afternoon the
remains were taken to Pittsburgh for
cremation after which they were
brought back for interment by the side
of her husband in old “Slab Cabin”
cemetery in College township.

attack of acute indigestion.
He wzs a son of David and Susan
Kinch Zentmyer and was born at

1861, hence was not quite sixty-two
vears old. He was educated at the
Juniata College, Huntingdon, after
which he taught school at several
places-and was. finally elected super-
intendent of the Curwensville schools.
While engaged in Curwensville he
studied surveying and mining engi-
neering, professions he followed after
locating in Tyrone in 1898. He also
had extensive lumbering interests.
From boyhood he took an active in-
terest in Sunday school work, and al-
ways labored to increase the interest
in the good cause throughout the
State. When Sheridan Troop was
called for service during the Spanish-
American war a provisional troop was
organized in Tyrone and Mr. Zent-
myer was made quartermaster. When
the Sheridan Troop returned home
and was reorganized he was retained
in the same capacity for a period of
twelve years.
Mr. Zentmyer is survived by his
wife and two children. Funeral serv-
ices were held at his late home at 2:30
o’clock on Wednesday afternoon, bur-
ial being made in the Grandview cem-
etery, Tyrone.

that place was her home until about
twenty years ago when she disposed
of her property in that place and mov-

All have their troubles. The rich
man has nothing on the poor man
