Keller Steffy, of New Jersey, was the

ler, of this place, was probably the
next oldest. The clan are all descend-
ants of Jacob and Mary Bottorf Kel-
ler, pioneer settlers at White Hall, on
the farm now owned by H. M. Sny-
der. Almost one hundred years ago
they sold their farm at White Hall
and located in Stonevalley, where the
old homestead is still in the family.
The descendants are now scattered
far and wide. A feature of the gath-
ering was a picnic dinner served un-
der an old cherry tree.
Six years ago Frank Swabb, tenant
on the Miss Olive Mitchell farm on
the Branch, lost his watch, and at the
time believed it had slipped from his
pocket while at work in the hay field.
On Monday, while plowing, he espied
something in the furrow and an ex-
amination disclosed his watch. The
field had been plowed four times since
the watch was lost without bringing
it to light. The case of the watch
was somewhat tarnished but the works
still in fair condition. Dice Thomas,
tenant on the McFarlane farm on the
Branch, had a similar experience.
Several years ago he loaned a pair of
sheep shears to a neighbor. The
neighbor claimed he returned them
but Mr. Thomas could not find the
shears. While plowing last week the
shears were turned up in the furrow.
They are but little damaged by rust.
Robert Morris Sample, of Union-
town, is about to engage in the feed
business in Altoona. His health be-
coming impaired while employed in a
bank in Uniontown he has decided to
engage in some business that will af-
ford him more outdoors work. His
father, Robert Furey Sample, is an
old Pine Grove Mills boy who located
in Uniontown thirty or more years
ago where success has crowned his
efforts. He is now secretary of the
Uniontown Trust company. After at-
tending the G. A. R. encampment at
Grensburg, last week, your corres-
pondent went to Uniontown to see
some old friends and is under many
obligations to Mr. Sample for a de-
lightful auto ride and other courte-
sies. We just stumbled into a sur-
prise birthday party at the home of
Dr. Gliffen where we also met Dr.
Neff, who was with Dewey at the bat-
tle of Manilla Bay. In brief, our trip
was a most delightful one from start
to finish. One of the features of the
G. A. R. encampment was the parade
of Civil war veterans. The ranks of
the old veterans were very thin but
world war veterans and other mili-
tary organizations made the parade
quite large and noteworthy. A mili-
tary pageant proved very thrilling
and realistic. The guests were en-
tertained on two automobile rides to
various places near Greensburg. The
encampment will be held at Wilkes-
Barre in 1924.

It is the very life of some people to
talk, and when you encounter such, it
is best to let them rattle away and
permit them thus to entertain them-
selves, for if you undertake to talk
yourself, you destroy their pleasure,
and add none to your own.
Mr. Dunklebarger, our wholesale

where they have an excellent oppor-
tunity of taking a view of the beau-
tiful Pennsvalley, the sight of which
is admired by all.

Not Due to Sex Alone
Bellefonte Women Have Learned the
Cause of Many Mysterious Pains
’ and Aches.
Many women have come to know
that sex isn’t the reason for all back-
aches, dizzy headaches and urinary
disorders. Men have these troubles,
too, and often they come from kidney
weakness. To live simply, eat spar-
ingly, and take better care of one’s
self and to use Doan’s Kidney Pills, is
bound to help bad kidneys get better.
There is no other remedy so well rec-
ommended by Bellefonte people. Ask

Kidney Pills off and on for some time
whenever my kidneys have troubled
me and they have never failed to help

of order and my back ached. I be-
came run down, too. Doan’s Kidney
Pills from Runkle’s drug store have
always relieved these attacks and
strengthened my back and kidneys.”
