Miss Jennie Morgan is recover-
ing so rapidly from her recent illness
that her arrangements now are for
resuming all work at her shop, Mon-

gan for any time next week.

Rumor that Railroad will be Built
Through State College to
While no definite announcement has
been made by any one in a position to
speak with authority surface indica-'
, tions point to the fact that some fine
morning in the not very distant fu-
‘ture the people of State College will
awaken to the fact that their dream |
of many years is about to be realized
by the building of a railroad through
or close by that town.
It is a well known fact that a corps
of railroad engineers spent some time
in that section last fall making sur-
veys from Lemont to Fairbrook but
the men engaged in the work were
not in a position to give out any in-
formation. Recent orders issued by
the Pennsylvania Railroad company
have resulted in the abandonment of
that portion of the Lewisburg and Ty-
rone railroad between Fairbrook and
Scotia, trains from Tyrone running
only as far as Fairbrook, while work
has already been begun on tearing up
the track on the abandoned portion.
This has again given rise to the ru-
mor that the near future will witness
the construction of the missing link
on the Lewisburg and Tyrone railroad,
or a line from Fairbrook through, or
close by, State College to connect with
the Lewisburg division at or near Le-
mont. This would give a through line
from Tyrone to Montandon, which
would be a few miles shorter than the
present road by way of Bellefonte.
Another argument that is advanced
as favorable to the building of the
missing link is that the road would
then afford a better outlet for the
product of the limestone operations
which will undoubtedly be developed
in the neighborhood of Coburn within
the next few years. It will be recall-
ed that about a year ago the Midvale
Steel company, through Robert F.
Hunter, bought thousands of acres of
limestone land between Coburn and
Millheim, and down as far as Aarons-
burg. The recent absorption of the
Midvale Steel Co. and the Cambria
Iron and Steel company by the Bethle-
hem Steel company naturally means
that the latter company will acquire
title to the limestone tracts in lower
Its: original purchase was for the
purpose of assuring the Cambria Iron
and Steel company an ample supply of
limestone for furnace flux for years
to come, inasmuch as the end of their
present .petential supply is already in
sight. When the time comes to de-
velop the limestone industry in lower
Pennsvalley, which it is claimed will
be in the next two or three years, it
is only natural that the companies
interested will figure on the shortest
possible railroad haul, and it is a good
guess that the Bethlehem interests
will be a strong argument with the
Pennsylvania Railroad company in in-
fluencing the completion of the Lew-
isburg and Tyrone railroad as orig-
inally surveyed. Of course the oft-
repeated arguments put forth by State
College authorities for better railroad
accommodations will undoubtedly have
some weight, as the institution and
the town have grown to a point where
their claims are entitled to some con-
Big Musical Concert for Benefit of
Bellefonte Hospital.
The Bellefonte choral society of fif-
ty voices, under the direction of Mrs.
R. Russell Blair, assisted by the ’Var-
sity quartette and orchestra, of State
College, will give a concert in the op-
era house on Tuesday evening, April
17th, for the benefit of the Bellefonte
hospital. This promises to be one of
the best musicai entertainments of the
season, and will be a treat for all mu-
sic lovers, aside from the fact that it
will be a benefit for the hospital. The
best musical talent in Bellefonte will
appear in the chorus, with splendid so-
loists. The College quartette and or-
chestra will alone be worth more than
the price of admission. Watch for the
ticket sellers and get your supply be-
fore the house is sold out. Remember
the date, Tuesday, April 17th.

day of last week and whose condition
at that time was deemed extremely
critical, will be glad to know that he
is getting along so well that his
chances for an early recovery are very

Centre Hall Presbyterians.
At a recent congregational meeting
of the Centre Hall Presbyterian
church George Emerick and G. O. Ben-
ner were elected ruling elders and
John Heckman and Charles Arney re-
elected trustees for a term of three
years. The financial report of Frank
V. Goodhart showed that the church
had contributed during the year $211
to general expenses; $350 to pastoral
support and $355 to benevolence. The
church has made a gain of fifty per
cent. in membership in the past two

——The will of Mrs. Owen John-
son, wife of the well known novelist,
who died in New York on March 2nd,
as filed in the surrogate’s court in
New York city, leaves in trust a fund
of $50,000 for her four step-children,
Olivia, Katherine and Robert Under-
wood Johnson, children of Mr. John-
son to his first wife, and Owen Dennis
de Lagarde Johnson, son of the novel-
ist and his second wife, who was Miss
Cecille de Lagarde, of Boalsburg.
One-fifth of her estate was reserved
for her husband and the balance held
in trust for her own daughter, Patri-
cia Sayre Johnson, who is less than a
year old. The third Mrs. Johnson was
a daughter of Frank V. Burton, a
wealthy cotton goods manufacturer,
of New York city. She and the nov-
elist were married about two years
Mr. and Mrs. James K. Barn-
hart, of Bellefonte, had the unique ex-
perience, last Friday evening, of hear-
ing their own son, Philip S. Barnhart,
of Pittsfield, Mass., sing in a radio
concert. Philip is the basso artist in
the Pittsfield quartette, a musical or-
ganization that has acquired quite a
reputation in the Bay State. Last
week he wrote a letter to his mother
informing her that they had been in-
vited to sing in a radio concert on
Friday evening and suggested that
they get in touch with a receiving set.
Consequently they went to the Elec-
tric Supply company store on High
street, and it was there they had the
pleasure of hearing their son sing.
Notwithstanding the fact that more
than five hundred miles intervened
his voice sounded as natural and
strong as if he were in an adjoining
——H. J. Thompson, of Curwens-
ville, has been in town this week over-
seeing the job of getting his new ten-
ants properly located in the Hiller
property, on High street, which he re-
cently purchased. While some very
decided improvements on the property
are contemplated by Mr. Thompson
nothing will be done in this direction
for a year, at least. His tentative
plans include the possible erection of
a moving picture theatre in the rear
of the present building, but more im-
portant than that, the erection of a
Store room between the present build-
ing and the W. S. Katz property, to
extend from the pavement line
through to the alley, and to be two
stories in height. This will make one
of the largest store rooms in Belle-
fonte and will be right in the business
section of the town. No important
changes are contemplated with the
present property, as it will be used
almost entirely for offices and resi-
dential apartments.
te fp pri
ing of the trout fishing season is
causing many a covetous glance to be
cast on the numerous big trout in
Spring creek opposite the “Watch-
man” office and the Beatty garage.
It is a well known fact that every
season a raid is made on these big
trout at night by some person or per-
sons so far undetected, and as this is
a closed portion of the stream game
and fish wardens should exercise ex-
tra precautions this year in protect-
ing the fish. Two or three years ago
many of the big trout were caught the
night before the opening of the sea-
son and it is a good guess that a net
was used in taking them. These trout
are one of the greatest attractions of
Bellefonte, and while every legitimate
sportsman will afford them all the
protection possible there is some per-
son who makes it a point to go after
the trout whenever he deems it safe
to do so, and this is the individual the
officers should lay for.
——Bellefonte with a population of
about four thousand has eight church-
es, or an average of one to every five
hundred people, including children.
Most of them, of course, have ample
room to accommodate their congrega-
tions but such is not the case with the
United Evangelical church. Its mem-
bership has increased to that extent
during the past few years that the
congregation is compelled to provide
more room. They have the money
with which to make the improvements
but are somewhat handicapped in the
matter of space. As stated in this
paper two weeks ago a committee of
the board of trustees appeared before
borough council relative to the pur-
chase of a strip of land lying. on the
west side of Logan’s branch. This
acquisition is not desired for build-
ing purposes but more as a matter of
a protection to the church against the
erection thereon of a building that
might detract from a church proper-
ty. The congregation’s plans include
the erection of an addition on the
ing to be used as a Sunday school
room, and the enlargement of the
present edifice by a small extension
on the eastern side. Some of these
improvements they hope to make this
summer, but just how far they will
| go depends on various circumstances.

Judge Quigley Discharges Sankey
Brothers from Jail and Re-
mits Fine.
After serving a little over a month
of a nine month’s jail sentence im-
posed by the court after being con-
victed of assault and battery William
and Guy Sankey, of Osceola Mills,
were discharged yesterday morning
by Judge Quigley and the fine of five
“hundred dollars imposed on each one
| at the time was remitted, but the men
! were required to pay the costs in the
case, which amounted to a little over
eighty dollars.
The Sankey case, which was fully
reported in the “Waichman” at the
February term of court, dates back to
the deer hunting season last fall, when
the two men while hunting on leased
lands in Rush and Taylor townships,
were alleged to have attacked Ralph
C. English, of Port Matilda, and
Charles K. Nicholson, of Tarentum.
In the mixup both gentlemen were
badly beaten up, though Mr. English
fared the worst. Action was brought
against the Sankeys for assault and
battery and wantonly pointing fire-
arms. The jury acquitted them of the
of guilty of assault and battery. In
sentencing the men Judge Quigley
made it clear that he did not counte-
nance such unsportsman-like actions
and imposed fines of $500 each and
nine month’s imprisonment in the
county jail.
The sentence brought forth a flood
of appeals to the court from residents
of Osceola Mills asking that the sen-
tence be set aside. Every appeal set
forth that the Sankeys are good citi-
zens and not given to the rough-house
methods they were alleged to have
employed against Messrs. English and
Nicholson. One of the letters was
from the Presbyterian minister of
Osceola Mills, who aiso asked that the
sentence be remitted.
In discharging the men yesterday
the court stated that he had learned
some things he did not know at the
time of the trial and for that reason
felt the men had been sufficiently pun-
ished. He advised them, however, to
stay off of the leased grounds in the
future and thus avoid any trouble,
which they both agreed to do.
Street Home Burned Out on
Sunday Afternoon.
Shortly before three o’clock on Sun-
day afternoon fire broke out in the
double dwelling house of Mrs. Gamill
Rice, on Pine street, and through a
misunderstanding as to the location of
the fire the flames had gained consid-
erable headway by the time the fire-
men arrived, and the result was the

Gamill Rice carried insurance on both |

When the alarm was given the fire- |
men were told it was Gamble Weiss’ |
house on Penn street, and naturally
went there. Finding no fire there
they went to Gamble’s mill and it was
there they learned the fire was on
Pine street. This delay enabled the
flames to get a good start and as the
house was a frame structure it was
impossible to save it. But the fire-
men did good work and prevented the
flames from breaking out and endan-

Y. W. C. A. Gymnasts Enthusiastic.
The gymnastic class of the Y. W. C.
A. is progressing rapidly and will soon
start special work for its spring dem-
onstration which will take place early
in May.
This class, with about twenty young
women, has recently been reorganiz-
ed, and is now being instructed in
standardized gymnastic work as pre-
scribed in college and Y. W. C. A. ed-
ucational courses.
This course consists of folk danc-
ing, games, various forms of march-
ing and calisthenics. These exercises
are based on the anatomy, physiology
and hygiene of the body. Eminent
physical educators, doctors, teachers
and gymnasts have spent years in sys-
tematically arranging the exercises in-
to a valuable scientific course of phys-
ical training.
A short physical examination is re-
quired to ascertain each member's
condition and fitness to take the
course. Special exercises are given to
correct faulty posture and orthopedic
defects. The ultimate aim is health,
and to develop the body harmoniously.
The games and dancing afford real
recreational as well as physical value.

Mrs. Ed. Sweitzer Injured in Auto
Mrs. Edward Sweitzer, who makes
her home with her grand-parents, Mr.
and Mrs. James Miller, out near the
Titan Metal Co. plant, was hit by an
automobile driven by A. R. MecNitt,
last Saturday morning and knocked
down on the state highway near her
home, and at first believed to be ser-
iously injured but such, fortunately
did not prove to be the case and she
is now recovering.
Mrs. Sweitzer, who prior to her
marriage was Miss Daisy Miller, had
gone across the state road to talk to
some friends in an automobile. Mr.
McNitt was driving out the road and
as he neared the Miller place Mrs.
Sweitzer started to run across the
road to her home. Seeing the ap-
proaching machine she became bewil-
dered with the result that she was
struck a glancing blow and knocked
Mr. McNitt stopped his machine as
quickly -as possible and assisted in
picking up the unfortunate woman,
who was carried into the Miller home.
Later she was sent to the hospital and
though she was unconscious several
hours she finally became rational and
has since been steadily improving un-
til at this writing she is considered
out of danger.
