Items of Interest Dished Up for the
Delectation of “Watchman” Read-
ers by a Corps of Gifted
Our town was made lively Sunday
by the buzz of the automobiles as they
passed through.
Charles Beck left for Wilkes-Barre,
where he will spend the summer work-
ing at the carpenter trade.
Charles Page vacated the house of
W. M. Bierly here, and moved to Re-
bersburg, Tuesday, March 20th.
Charles Brungart was home from
Renovo, spending Sunday with his
family, returning Monday noon.
Auditors Gramley and Stover were
in Bellefonte Monday, March 19th, to
complete their work as auditors on
the accounts of Centre county for the
year 1922.
The sick of our town have all re-
covered sufficiently to resume their
daily tasks. We understand that most
of the ailments were not grip, but
mild cases of influenza.
A little boy arrived at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Winters last Fri-
day morning, early, and advised them
that he intended to stay in their home
in the future, to which all agreed.
While returning from the sale of
Charles Zimmerman, Friday last, the
top of J. V. Brungart’s car was torn
off by a severe wind storm. Mr. Brun-
gart made the balance of the trip
home with the top down.
Herbert Stover is adding to the
the printing part of his shop, having
just received a new Chandler & Price
printing press and his present quar-
ters are almost too small to accommo-
date his ever increasing trade along
this line.
W. B. Crebs, who tenanted C. H.
Smull’s farm, a short distance west of
town for quite a number of years, va-
cated same last Thursday, moving his
belongings to near Selinsgrove, where
he purchased a farm of his own. We
did not like to lose him from our
midst, for he was a good neighbor.
The United Evangelical and the As-
sociation churches united on Sunday,
March 18th, at Rebersburg, and open-
ed with a Sunday school enrollment
of 93. Sunday, the 25th, there were
in attendance at Sunday school 99
persons. All indications point to an
attendance of 125 in the near future.
Good spirit prevailed at both gather-
ings and our prediction is that it will
soon be one of the largest Sunday
schools of the valley. It is said that
“in union there is strength,” and it
made a very deep impression on us
when we saw the old spirit of fellow-
ship renewed in such a Christ-like
manner. - May the work never cease
to grow in interest and the spirit now
existing never die out, is the wish of
the writer.
Lee Orr and Lester Bartley are
both sporting new Ford runabouts.
Mr. and Mrs. Sorghum, of Flem-

day included Mr. and Mrs. Robert
Beatty, William and Reed Deitz.
Mrs. George Ertley returned home
last week after spending some time
with her daughter, Mrs. Walter Bai-
Friends here were sorry to hear of
the accident last Wednesday which
resulted in the death of George Fultz,
of Axe Mann. The family was quite
well known in this vicinity, as they
lived here two years ago. Prior to
her marriage Mrs. Fultz was Miss
Mackey, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
James Mackey, of this place. She and
her three young children have the
sympathy of many friends in their
bereavement. ? ;
Mrs. Irvin Weaver, who has been
on the sick list for some time, will
likely be taken to the Lock Haven
hospital for a minor operation. Mrs.
Harry Hoy, who has been threatened
with “pneumonia, is now improving;
Mr. Hoy, who has been suffering with
a bad attack of influenza for several
weeks, is slightly improved. Mr. and
Mrs. Willard Harter and son Charles,
Mrs. Ella Deitz, Mrs. Joseph Neff,
Mrs. Mary Stoner and Mrs. J. J. Vo-

New Issue of Postage Stamps.
The Postoffice Department is print-
ing an entire new issue of postage
stamps, some of which have already
been put in circulation in the larger
offices. On the smaller denominations
appear vignettes of prominent people
while the larger denominations con-
tain pictures of scenes and places, as
The 1 cent stamp a vignette of Ben-
jamin Franklin.
The 2 cent stamp George Washing-
The 3 cent Abraham Lincoln.
The 4 cent Martha Washington.
The 5 cent Theodore Roosevelt.
The 6 cent James Garfield.
The 9 cent Thomas Jefferson.
The 10 cent James Monroe.
The 11 cent Rutherford B. Hayes.
The 10 cent ‘special delivery a mo-
tor cycle. :
The 15 cent the Statue of Liberty.
The 25 cent, a new denomination,
the Niagara Falls.
The 50 cent, the Arlington Memor-

The $1.00 stamp, the Lincoln Me-

George T. Bush, of Bellefonte, who
has been a member of the American
Philatelic Society since 1886, and who
already has a collection of 20,000 va-
rieties of stamps, has started making
a collection of the new issue. In this
connection Mr. Bush states that the
rarest stamps are those issued be-
tween 1840 and 1872, some specimens
of issue between those dates being
worth as high as $5,000. Any per-
son in possession of old letters dating
back to that period should examine
the stamps carefully before destroy-
ing same.

The Kind You Have Always Bought.
of Centre Hall,
Was Frank W. Woolworth, the In-
genius Clerk, the Great Merchant.
“If you wish to make money, make
a little at a time and make it often,”
was the motto in which Frank W.
Woolworth, the originator of the
great chain of Woolworth stores, be-
“Not many people wish to buy fif-
ty thousand dollar necklaces, but al-
most every person really wishes to
get rid of five and ten cent pieces,”
is another motto to which Mr. Wool-
worth subscribes.
_ Because he believed in such prin-
ciples of business Frank Woolworth,
who had no better opportunities than
they, built the most princely of busi-
ness buildings, a Broadway tower
that rivals the celebrated towers of
Europe. :
The nimble penny is a better guide
to fortune than is the elusive twenty-
dollar gold piece.
In his boyhood days Frank Wool-
worth went about barefooted, took
care of cows and horses, and knew
what it was to put hay back into the
dusty haymows. When the little dis-
trict school was open he went to it
and learned to add and multiply.
Then he went to a little commercial
college and learned something about
book-keeping. With this background
of information he looked for a job
and found one in a sort of a general |
store where he tied neat bundles and
was polite to nervous ladies. So far,
he was quite an ordinary young man,
but at the age of 26 he had an idea;
he put together in one part of the!
store a lot of odds and ends, put a
sign up saying that a customer could
have any article there for five cents
—and waited to see what would hap- |
pen. That seedling idea grew into
the great chain of Woolworth stores,
into the palatial Woolworth building '
in New York, and into millions of
It is a good thing to plant real |
ideas. The people flocked so fast to
that five-cent counter that the young
man borrowed about three hundred
dollars and started a five-cent store
in Utica, N.Y. He made a little]
money, paid his debt, and opened
another store in Pennsylvania. Then |
he simply kept on doing the same’
thing over and over, that is, making
money, building new stores, making
more money and building more stores.
At the same time he kept trying to |
sell better goods, and to make better
bargains. Then he drew to himself |
a coterie of bright men and taught
them how to sow ideas. When he
died he was one of the richest men,
and he had established a great busi- |
ness that is a public benefit. |
Some Cow.
It was the custom of a certain dea-
con, when dining at the home of one
of his best friends, to drink a glass
of milk, as a prelude to his dinner.
One day when the minister was sched-
uled to appear, instead of the rich,
foamy glass of milk, his friend placed
beside his plate a glass of milk punch.
After blessing, the deacon seized his
glass and drank it to the last drop
and then exclaimed as he closed his
eyes and smacked his lips,
a cow!”

Grangers to
A large residence hall for women
| students to cost approximately $250,
000, will be erected next year by the
Pennsylvania State Grange on the
campus of The Pennsylvania State
College. Immediate steps are to be
taken that will allow every one of the
more than a thousand Grange organi-
zations of the State to participate in
this movement which has been decided
upon by a special committee appointed
at the last Grange convention at Wil-
liamsport. There are over 100,000
Grangers in the State and it is hoped |
to have the entire fund in hand by
April, 1924, so that construction on
the Grange memorial can be started
at that time.
During a visit to the college Yost |
week members of the committee |
learned that two girls were refused
admission last fall for every one that |
was admitted largely because of lim- |
ited dormitory facilities. They had |
been empowered by the State Grange
organization to select the type of
building and immediately determined |
that the Grange would supply the
head-house of a projected group of
residences for women students. The
committee is composed of P. H. Dew- |
ey, Gaines, chairman; M. B. Orr, Mer- |
cer, Mrs. Howard VanKirk, Washing-
ton; Mrs. Louise Piollet, Wysox, and
R. G. Bressler, of the agricultural
school faculty. |

Hood’s Sarsaparilla
Appeals to every family in these
days. From no other medicine can you
get so much real medicinal effect as
from this. It is a highly concentrated
extract of several valuable medicinal
ingredients, pure and wholesome. The
dose is small, only a teaspoonful three
times a day.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla is a wonderful
tonite medicine for the blood, stom-
ach, liver and kidneys, prompt in giv-
ing relief. Itis pleasant to take,
agreeable to the stomach, gives a
thrill of new life. Why not try it?
