Trout fishing season will not
open on April 15th this year, because
of the fact that the 15th falls on Sun-
day, but it is highly probable that
many fishermen will go to their fa-
vorite streams that night so as to be
on the ground bright and early on
Monday morning, the 16th. Inas-
much as the date is only a little over
two weeks away fishermen are get-
ting their rods and tackle in shape
and doubtless wondering if luck will
be with them on the opening day. Ow-
ing to the extremely low water in
many of the trout streams last fall
there is more or less speculation as to
the trout surviving the hard winter,
but it is quite probable that they
sought protection in the
waters of the larger streams and will
be about as plentiful as usual this
year. The only question will be find-
ing them, and then catching them
after they are located.
——Wednesday’s high wind was a
little too much for successful aviation.
The regular mail plane from Cleve- |
land was forced to land in the western
part of the State owing to the terrific
gale and in doing so the machine was
damaged, though the pilot escaped
injury. Another plane was dispatched
from the Cleveland field to fly light
through to New York, with orders to
stop in Bellefonte and take on the lo-
cal mail, but when the plane reached
here about 1:30 o’clock the wind was
so high that the pilot could not make
a landing. Twice he came dewn un-
til the landing gear of his machine
touched the ground but both times the
wind caught him and he was compel-
led to go up. Finally he signaled that
he had sufficient oil and gas to carry
him through and a return signal was
given to go ahead, which he did,
reaching the New York field safely
about half-past three o’clock.
MYERS.—John S. Myers died at
his home in Philipsburg on Tuesday
night of last week as the result of

Michael and Leah Stine Myers and

89 years and 1 month. His early life
was spent on the farm but after lo-
cating in Philipsburg many years ago

nine years ago. Surviving him, how-
ever, are the following children: Mrs.

tional Guard, which drills but once a
week, in comparing it with the regu-
lar army.

Harrisburg, March 27.—Under. the
piessure of threats, promises and in-
i timidations, reinforced by substantial
| support from Democratic members,
‘ the House this afternoon passed Gov-
“ernor Pinchot’s Prohibition Enforce-
iment bill by a scant majority. The
final vote was 107 to 100, the affirma-
tive ballots being two more than the:
required constitutional majority.
| The new era of prohibitior. in Penn-
‘ sylvania, which “dry” cohorts believe:
the measure guarantees, became op-
, erative at 9:15 tonight, when the Gov-
, ernor signed the bill. After signing it
he presented the pen to Mrs. Leal
Cobb Marion, who, as the dupe of Mrs.
! Pinchot, sent out the list of “pledges”
for the misnamed “dry” bill. Mrs.
{ Marion opposed the late United States
. Senator Penrose in his last campaign,
a fact which would indicate Republi-
cans throughout the State will deeply
appreciate the presentation by the
! Governor.
Adoption of the measure automatic-
ally abolished all licenses in the State
and removed all restrictions on the
sale of beverages containing: less than
one-half of 1 per cent, of alcohol. Un-
less subsequent legislation is enacted,
near beer may be sold in any estab-
lishment on any day of the week and
next door to a church or a school-
house if a dispenser selects a location
of that character.
When the vote was announced and it
was found the Governor had recruited
a sufficient number to put the measure
over, several hundred “drys” congre-
gated in the aisles and in the galleries
started an impromptu demonstration
that lasted for several minutes. Men
and women, chiefly the latter, joined
in shouting for this new victory for
the Anti-Saloon League, which backed
the Governor to the limit.

An endeavor may be made in the
near future to settle 15,000 British
families in Brazil. Walter Wysard,
