Bellefonte Postoffice Has High Rating
in Treasury Savings Certificates.
The Bellefonte postoffice hit a high
mark in handling the United States
treasury savings certificates during
1922, according to advices received
from the savings division, Third Fed-
eral Reserve district. Of the estimat-
ed total of $160,000,000 for the coun-
try, Bellefonte is credited with more
than $206,750, maturity value, treas-
ury savings certificates placed in the
hands of Centre countians.
“This surely reflects the integrity
and thrift of your people,” writes sav-
ings director George E. Lloyd to post-
master John L. Knisely and W. Harri-
son Walker, assistant to director.
“Thanks to such substantial and fru-
gal communities as Bellefonte, this
country has been able to cope with
many financial difficulties and to
maintain its credit at a high level
For the five-year period from 1917 to
1922 the total United States govern-
ment expenditures reached the amount
of $49,000,000,000. This is more than
double the total expenditures for the
entire period from 1860 to 1916; yet
we have been able to meet every obli-
gation swiftly and honestly merely be-
cause of the character and stability of
our finance, business and citizenship.”
More than half a billion dollars of
1918 war savings stamps have been
recently retired by the Uunited States
treasury. Of this amount, about $30,-
000,000 in stamps have been redeemed
or exchanged in the Third district
alone, and the Bellefonte postoffice re-
deemed or exchanged stamps amount-
ing to $104,010.
Two distinct features are noted in
this connection: First, the govern-
ment paid the stampholders $5 spot
cash for every stamp bought five
years ago at the price of four dollars
and a few odd cents; and secondly, the
owners were given the privilege of ex-

KELSO.—Miss Louise M. Kelso,
for three years a member of the board
of instruction of the Bellefonte High
school, died on Thursday of last week
at the home of her brother, in Decatur,
Ill., as the result of a tumor on the
Miss Kelso, who was instructor in
history in the Bellefonte High school,
was unable to return to Bellefonte at
the opening of the public schools last
September, owing to illness, but had
recovered sufficiently to report for du-
ty about October first. She taught three
weeks but her health was so impaired
that she was compelled to give up her
work and was given a leave of ab-
sence, Dr. Beach being secured as a
substitute. - She went to Clifton
Springs, New York, where she remain-
ed until the latter part of December
when she returned to her home in
Wooster, Ohio, for Christmas. Her
condition being little improved she
was given a year’s leave of absence
and Mr. Gilson secured to take her
place. Early in February Miss Kelso
went to Decatur, Ill, to visit her
brother and while there her condition
grew worse instead of better and her
death followed last Thursday.
During the three years she taught
in Bellefonte she made many friends
here, especially in her school work.
Unusually proficient in her work and
a young woman of most pleasing per-
sarality and christian character she
was loved and esteemed by all who
were fortunate enough to know her,
and her passing away is cause for sin-
cere sorrow and regret.
She is survived by her mother, one
sister and three brothers, one of whom
is a Presbyterian minister and anoth-
er dean of a college in Wooster, Ohio.
Burial was made at Decatur, Ill.

WERTS.—Last week the “Watch-
man” published a notice of the death
of the venerable .Philip Werts, at
Houserville and the fact that his wife,
Mrs. Catherine Werts, was also very
ill. In fact her illness was more ser-
ious than supposed at that time and
she passed away at an early hour on
Thursday morning.
She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Felix Dale and was born in College
township eighty-eight years ago. Mr.
and Mrs. Werts spent sixty-five years
of married life together and passed
away within three days. In fact Mrs.
Werts was so ill at the time that she
did not know that her husband had
preceded her to the Great Beyond.
Their son John is her only surviving
Mr. Werts’ funeral was to have been
held on Thursday morning but owing
to the death of his wife it was post-
poned and a double funeral held at ten
o'clock on Saturday morning. Rev.
M. C. Piper had charge of the services
and the remains of the venerable
couple were buried in one grave in the
Shiloh cemetery.

SMITH.—Allison O. Smith, former
changing their 1918 stamps for new | judge of Clearfield county, died on
treasury savings certificates in con- | Saturday evening following a linger-
venient denominations of $25, $100 {ing illness with Bright’s disease. He
and $1000,
$20.50, $82 and $820, respectively.
Thousands of owners have taken ad-
vantage of the exchange feature and
thousands of others have bought the
certificates for cash, realizing their
safety, convenience and benefit. .
“There is a decided personal advan-
tage in getting treasury savings cer-
tificates as a means of investment,”
states Director Lloyd. “Suppose an
individual with an average income
saves and invests $20.50 in a $25 treas-
ury certificate each month. If he
keeps this up for five years—the ma-
turing date—he will have at the end
of that time a steady income of $25 a
month for the next five years.”
Boy Scouts, Troop Ne. 1.
The entire Troop is now enrolled as
forest guides, the pins and certifi-
cates being received at the last meet-
ing. This implies the study of trees na-
tive to Pennsylvania, and the protec-
tion of them. A meeting of the troop
conclave was held Tuesday evening at
the parish house. Those present were
troop officers, patrol leaders and as-
sistants, as well as the scoutmaster
and one of his assistant scoutmasters.
A delicious supper was served after
which troop business was brought up,
and the meeting adjourned. The con-
stitution is being amended so as to
include more boys in the Troop. At
the next meeting an auction will be
held for the purpose of selling all
scout uniform equipment which has
been outgrown. This will make it
possible for the Troop to be properly
uniformed by Memorial day.

——Awnings and Tents of all kinds.
! —The Potter-Hoy Hardware Co. 10-1t
Her sister, Sarah T.;Tu-:
Floyd Smith Electrocuted.
Floyd E. Smith’s long drawn out
fight for his life ended on Monday
morning when he was sent to the
death chair for the murder of his
wife’s three weeks’ old child, a crime
committed almost three years ago.
Smith had virtually lived within the
shadow of the chair for a year and
five months, ever since he was brought
to the death house from Bradford
county on October 1st, 1921. At that
time a respite was granted only a few
hours before he was to have been sent
to the chair, and ever since he has oc-
cupied a cell in the death house and
has seen and heard a number of con-
demned men enter only to pass out by
way of the electric chair.
But through it all he never lost
hope and always maintained confi
dence in the belief that he would in
some way escape treading the same
path. Even as late as Sunday, when
every known avenue of escape was
closed, he still expressed a belief that
something would happen to save his
life, but such did not prove to be the
case and on Monday morning he was
compelled to pay the penalty exacted
by law.
Maintaining his innocence of inten-
tional murder he went to the death
chair with apparent composure. He
was accompanied by the prison chap-
lain, Rev. George L. Courtney and at
7:08 o'clock the first contact was
made. Nine minutes later Smith was
pronounced dead by Dr. Robert M.
Campbell, the penitentiary physician.
Smith was from Bradford county
and the crime for which he was elec-
trocuted was committed in April, 1920.
He was tried, convicted and sentenc-
ed to death in February, 1921, and the
first date for his electrocution was
October 3rd, 1921, Since that time
he had been granted seven respites
and his case was carried to the Su-
preme court twice and been up before
the board of pardons two times. Be-
fore he was elected United States Sen-
ator George Wharton Pepper was ac-
tive in Smith’s behalf.
Smith, it is said, spent a good part
of Sunday writing last letters to
friends, one of which was to Rev. T.
W. Young, who as chaplain of the pen-
itentiary for many weeks while Smith
was an inmate of the death house, vis-
ited him almost daily and through his
association had ample opportunity to
judge of the man’s character. The
letter follows:
Rev. T. W. Young, Bellefonte.
My Dear Brother, Mr. Young. Iam
so sorry this will be my last letter I
will ever write to you, but I am sure
some day we will meet in that beauti-
ful home God has prepared for us all
that trust in Him. I am going to
meet my God with a clear conscience,
and I am sure I will soon meet my
dear mother and wife and little baby
girl, that is calling for me where all
the good people go that trust and
believe in our Lord Jesus Christ. I
thank you from the bottom of my
heart for all you have done to save aa
innocent man of intent murder from !
the electric chair. I am also sending
you 2 little token to remember me by.
It’s a picture of myself and my dear
wife I will be with soon. Good bye
till we meet again in Heaven.
May God bless you, a prayer from
a Brother,
P. S.—No, I never made any threat
against my wife Ruth since I knew
her; I have no cause to.
Of Interest to County School Directors
The directors of the various school
districts in Centre county should be
vitally interested in what is going on
in Harrisburg in relation to the basis
upon which it is proposed to place fu-
ture distribution of State funds.
At present the basis of distribution
is on the population of the district.
The fact that the sparsely populated
rural districts have not, under this
system, received as large a percentage.
of money as the more densely populat-
ed ones, when they actually needed it
more, has appeared inequitable and it
is now proposed to make the allot-
ments on the basis of the assessed
valuation of all property in the dis-
The modifications of the Edmonds
act proposed would provide for five
classes of school districts, instead of
four, as at present. On the basis of
the taxable valuation of each of the
five classes of districts, computed on
actual figures, the valuation per teach-
er and the percentage of minimum
salaries allowed by the State would

. Miscellaneous Business Transacted by
: Borough Council.
Seven members were present at the
| regular meeting of borough council on
Monday evening. A written state-
ment was received from Leonard A.
| Breon, of west Beaver street, stating
: that complaint has been made about
{ him leaving his car stand on the street
in front of his house, the complainant
claiming that he blocked the roadway.
Mr. Breon stated that the street is
not the proper width and asked that it
be made wider. The mater was refer-
red to the Street committee.
The Deitrick-Dunlap Cadillac com-
pany presented a written permission
from the Public Service Commission
for the installation of a new tank and
two gasoline pumps at their garage
on the corner of Bishop and Allegheny
streets. The matter was referred to
the Street committee.
The Street committee reported re-
pairs to the Howard street sewer.
The Water committee reported the
collection of $20.00 on the 1921 water
The Fire and Police committee pre-
sented the burgess’ check for $170.00
for license fees. The question of
keeping vagrants over night was
again brought up when Mr. Flack
stated that the old lock-up could be re-
paired at an estimated cost of $100.
Reference to the auditor’s statement
showed that it cost but $54.50 last
year for the keeping of vagrants in
the county jail, and after considerable
discussion the Fire and Police commit-
tee was authorized to use their judg-
ment and keep such people wherever
it was most economical.
The Finance committee presented
the report of the borough treasurer
which showed a balance in bank on
March 5th of $15,482.94. The treas-
urer also asked for the renewal of
eight notes totalling $34,630, which
was authorized.
The Special committee reported
that burgess W. Harrison Walker and
councilmen Thomas Hazel and Darius
Waite attended the convention of bor-
oughs held in Harrisburg two weeks

port of the work of the convention.

big spring is badly in need of repairs
and requested permission to get bids

ing. They were instructed to do so.
Mr. Flack reported that the Fire
and Police committee had granted the
Undine Fire company permission to
take their steamer to Lock Haven to
help pump water out of the flooded
Mr. Flack also stated to council that
the fire companies have each been
paying a man five dollars a month to
| keep the pumpers cleaned and in shape
and they felt that council should bear
this’ expense. A motion was passed
accepting the responsibility. Mr. Em-
erick stated that the pumpers have
been in service a year and to keep
| them in good condition the valves
i should be ground and carbon cleaned
! off. Then followed a discussion as to
where the work should be done and
the matter was finally referred to the
Fire and Police committee with power.
Mr. Brouse reported that the Street
committee recommended that the bill
against James R. Hughes for paving
on Pine street be receipted in cancel-
lation of his bill for putting down sew-
er on east Bishop street, and council
so authorized. :
Regarding the request of residents
of east High street for a sewer up
Cherry alley the borough manager
stated that the distance is five hun-
dred feet and the cost would be about
$400. After a thorough discussion of
the situation council decided that if
all the residents interested would pay
their property and the regular ten dol-
lars tapping fee, which will cover
about half the expense, council will
put down the sewer, and the borough
manager was instructed to so inform
the applicants and get their signa-
tures to an agreement. The expense
will be only about one-fourth what it
would cost each one to put down a

in shape, and it was almost five when:
the Lewisburg train, with another en--
gine sent here from Sunbury, pulled’
out on the return trip to Sunbury. For-

damage comparatively trivial. Old

Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man,
Thief, Doctor, Lawyer, Indian
All have their troubles. The rich
man has nothing on the poor man
when it comes to trouble. The doctor
and lawyer, as well as the beggar man

your service and can overcome eye
trouble which will help you overcome
all other trouble.
