By actual count on Sunday there
were 1800 automobiles passed through
our town.
Mr. and Mrs. Henry Noll and Mrs.
J. Abner Noll are visiting this week
with friends in Philadelphia.
Mrs. Robb and daughter, Mrs. Har-
ry Barr, of Altoona, are visiting at
the home of Harry McClincy.
Miss Clara Smoyer, who has been
at the Cresson sanitorium for the past
year, is home on a short vacation and
we are glad to say very much improv-
ed in health.
“Come in and rest a bit-Tea House”

restaurant just established. Lunch-

We bespeak success for the new ven-

cleanly, tidy woman and is an expert
Collins Baumgardner continues to
be chief cook and bottle-washer at his
home. A week ago he took Mrs.
Baumgardner to Tyrone to spend a
week with her daughter’s family. Sun-
day morning he left bright and early
to bring her home, but found her rath-
er ill to return, so she decided to stay
another week.
If a man’s wife is quick-tempered,
irritable or cranky, he ought to make
due allowance for it, remembering
that she, like himself, is but human.
She may be an angel in spirit, but
there are times in the lives of all
when the flesh steals a march on the
spirit. He probably makes allowance
for this when dealing with others, but
when he comes home it is forgotten.
How many there are who leave their
amiability at their office or place of
business, when they go home at night.
The farmers are surely a highly fa-
vored class. They can now borrow
from $500 to $25,000 from the Federal
Land bank, of Baltimore, at 5% per
cent. per annum and by 1 per
cent. on a loan of $1000 per annum
additional they have 33 years to
pay off loan, principal and interest. I
was just thinking that now, as usual,
on the approach of a Presidential elec-
tion the farmers are in evidence, since
they are a powerful factor in politics.
However, the proposition is a com-
mendable one and should aid material-
ly in advancing the interest of the
tillers of the soil.
The automobile industry is surely
making wonderful progress. We have
two well equipped garages, and it is
astounding the work they turn out
daily. Sommers and Jodon are locat-
ed at the forks of the road leading to
State College; the firm was establish-
ed two years ago; in addition to their
auto repair work they turned in and
wired our residences for electric light.
The auto repair work crowded them
so hard they finally had to abandon
the wiring of houses. The firm is
practical and capable hence have all
the work they can handle. Henry N oll
is the possessor of the extensive up-
to-date garage adjacent to the hotel
and postoffice. Henry's progress is
agreeably surprising all his friends;
he handles every machine on the mar-
ket but is a Ford enthusiast; what he
don’t know about the Ford is not
worth knowing. Mr. Noll, very wise-
ly, before embarking in business on
his own account procured a position
in a large Philadelphia auto establish-
ment; when through there he served
quite a while in an extensive factory
in Indiana; his final apprenticeship
found him in an up-to-date factory in
Michigan. A year ago he opened his
garage and owing to his close atten-
tion to business, he is quite proficient,
hence it is that he is over-taxed with
patronage and is often obliged to re-
main at his work until after midnight.
His success is assured.

“An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a
Pound of Cure.”
A disturbance of the even balance of
health, which often occurs in these trying
days of reconstruction may cause serious
trouble. Nobody can be too careful to
keep the balance up.
When people begin to lose appetite, or
to get tired easily, the least imprudence
brings on sickness, weakness, or debility.
The system needs ‘a tonic, craves it, and
should not be denied it; and the best ton-
ic that many people recommend is Hood's
Sarsaparilla. What this medicine has done
in keeping healthy people healthy, in keep-
ing up the even balance of health, gives
it the same distinction as a preventive that
it enjoys as a cure. Its early use has il-
lustrated the wisdom of the old saying
that “a stitch in time saves nine.”
Preventive treatment now and then ealls
for the use of a good cathartic or laxative,
like Hood’s Pills, which are purely vege-
table and act quickly and thoroughly.

Russian Refugee Aids Penn State’
One of the most striking cases of
college loyalty and sacrifice has just
come to light in connection with the
Pennsylvania State College $2,000,000
building fund campaign, with the ar-
rival at headquariars of a pledge for
$200 from “Tommy” Srednik, gradu-
ate of the college in the class of 1912.
Srednik endured untold hardships
and privation as a Russian refugee
following the outbreak of the world
war, and broken in mind and body,
with his money gone, he was finally re-
turned to America through the Red
Cross. Arriving in this country, he
found that his wife and child had both
died the previous year of influenza.
Weak and penniless, he began the
battle for recovery and it is only re-
cently that he has been able to be
about, and it is said that he is still
out of regular employment. Yet he
has not only pledged generously to the
college campaign, but he is spending
three nights or more a week canvass-
ing alumni in Philadelphia and has al-
ready secured many pledges.
Self-Fed Pigs Gain Better Than
The self-feeding of pigs is prefera-
ble to hand-feeding, with respect to
weight gained and the low cost of
gain, according to a feeding experi-
ment conducted at The Pennsylvania
State College agricultural experiment
station. Two lots of fifteen pigs each
were fed for ninety-nine days, a ration
of corn meal, buckwheat middlings and
tankage, self-fed to one lot and hand-
fed to the other. The self-fed lot
gained 1.3 pounds per day at a cost
per hundred-weight gain of $5.74 and
returned above feed cost $7.41 per pig,
as against .88 pounds, $7.78 and $3.18
for the hand-fed lot. The pigs in the
self-fed lot showed a decided advan-
tage in thrift and quality during the
last half of the experiment.
Then He Traveled.
For hours they had been together on
her front porth. The moon cast its
tender gleam down on the young and
handsome couple who sat strangely for
apart. He sighed. She sighed. Fi-
“] wish I had money, dear,” he said.
“I'd travel.”
Impulsively she slipped her hand in-
to his; then, rising swiftly, she sped
in the house.
Aghast, he looked at his hand. In
his palm lay a nickel.—Lampoon.
Some Good Advice
Strengthened by Bellefonte Exper-
Kidney disease is too dangerous to
neglect. At the first sign of back-
ache, headache, dizziness or urinary
disorders, you should give the weak-
ened kidneys prompt attention. Eat
little meat, take things easier and use
a reliable kidney tonic. There’s no
other kidney medicine so well recom-
mended as Doan’s Kidney Pills. Belle-
fonte people rely on them. Here's one
of the many statements from Belle-
fonte people.
Mrs. Boyd Vonada, E. Bishop St.,
says: “Some time ago my kidneys
were in a weak condition. I could
hardly rest at night and during the
day when I was on my feet doing my
housework my back gave out and
ached so I often had to stop and rest.
I frequently had dizzy nervous head-
aches and my kidneys acted too often.
I used Doan’s Kidney Pills purchased
at the Mott Drug Co., and they just
suited my case. They rid me, of the
backaches, headaches and dizziness.
My kidneys were regulated and I felt
60c, at all dealers. Foster-Milburn
