State Police Withdrawn from Rock-
The last four members of the detail
of state police who were sent to the
Rockview penitentiary about the mid-
dle of June after the escape of eight
prisoners were withdrawn on July 2nd
and returned to the troop station at
Butler. Thirty-seven prisoners known
to be ringleaders in fomenting trouble
at the Rockview institution have been
sent back to Pittsburgh under heavy
guard and since their transfer every-
thing has been quiet and orderly at
In the last issue of the “Watch-
man” mention was made of the fact
that two of the eight prisoners who
escaped on June 17th and 19th had
been recaptured, Edward Fiddell in
Chicago and Robert Hill at Punxsu-
tawney. On June 29th Clair Jamison
and Arthur Price were captured at
New Castle, Pa.
The four prisoners were given an
opportunity to plead guilty to the
charge of escaping and appear before
the Centre county court on Monday,
July 2nd, for sentence but only one,
Robert Hill, was willing to do so. Hill
had been sent up from Jefferson coun-
ty for from three to four years and his
term would have expired next Janu-
ary. He told the court that he had
been coerced into escaping by other
prisoners and Judge Quigley remand-
ed him to the western penitentiary to
serve out his original sentence and
from two to four years additional.
Fiddell, Jamison and Price refused
to plead guilty and declared they would
go to trial in the Centre county court
on the charge. Fiddell, who is report-
ed to have been a gunman in Chicago
before his arrest and conviction of
burglary in Cambria county, became
unusually abusive and threatened to
get even with: everybody when he
gets out of the penitentiary.
Greatest Methodist Outing in Penn-
For the twenty-ninth time the
Methodists and their friends of Cen-
tral Pennsylvania will meet at beau-
tiful Lakemont Park, Altoona on July
26th. This annual picnic has been
held for a quarter of a century and is
without question the largest summer
assemblage held under Methodist au-
spices in the State of Pennsylvania.
Its continued popularity and success
is due to several causes. First it is
central. Lakemont Park is easily ac-
cessible. It is conveniently reached
from north, east, south and west by
good highways and by the various
branches of the Pennsylvania railroad.
Second, Lakemont Park is the most
beautiful and best equipped park in
central Pennsylvania. Third, a uni-
formly high order of program has
been presented each year. Some of
the greatest leaders of the denomina-
tion have provided information and.
inspiration. This year will be no ex-
.The following program for this
year’s gathering has already been an-
nounced: Morning worship, sermon
by Rev. John H. Daugherty, D. D., of
Williamsport; afternoon rally, address
by Rev. Daniel L. Marsh, D. D., of
Pittsburgh; evening lecture by Rev. L.
C. Murdock, D. D., of Philadelphia.
Music of a high order is promised by
the Fifth Avenue quartette and by the
chorus of the Women’s League of
Voters, of Altoona. Lakemont Park,
with its ample accommodations and a
program of such merit, will again at-
tract thousands of Methodists and
their friends to Altoona on July 26th.
Important Meeting Friday Evening.
All persons in this community who
may be in any way interested in the
Blanchard-Moshannon Mining Co., are
invited to attend a final meeting in
the dining room of the Brockerhoff
house, on this (Friday) evening, at
eight o'clock. This will be a public
meeting and will be attended by the
mining engineer of the company who
will be prepared to give any infor-
mation desired. It is the first and
last opportunity for persons to en-
gage allotments of the preferred
stock, as the plant will be in opera-
tion on a 100 per cent. production be-
fore September 1st. It is quite prob-
able the bulk of this stock will be al-
lotted to Bellefonte. If you are inter-
ested, come—this includes the ladies.

Pine Grove Mills Swept by Terrific
Almost the worst storm that that
community has ever experienced swept
over the south-western section of the
county on Tuesday afternoon, expend-
ing the worst of its fury in and about
Pine Grove Mills.
The storm came in from the north
and broke about three o’clock in the
afternoon. It grew dark as night and
a regular tornado of wind preceded a
veritable water-spout. Small build-
ings were unroofed, trees and fences
laid flat, gardens ruined and on the
Major Fry farm three large apple
trees were blown down, one of them
falling on and completely demolishing
a hay rake that was being hauled into

thunder storms. Enough rain fell to
thoroughly soak the ground, and as a
result gardens and farm crops took on
a new lease of life.

——LElizabeth A. Hugg, eighteen
year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Toner A. Hugg, of Milesburg, scored
a big beat over all her young friends
on Friday, June 29th, by taking a trip
in an airplane from Bellefonte to Du-
Bois, with a stop in Clearfield en-
route. The trip was made with pilot
“Windy” Smith, who was on his way
from the eastern part of the State to
DuBois to give exhibitions as a part
of the big Fourth of July demonstra-
tion in that place. He was flying a T
Standard machine which has cockpit
room for two passengers in addition
to the pilot. Smith was accompanied
by his mechanician and spent the pre-
vious night in Bellefonte. He offer-
ed to take along to DuBois free any-
body who would care to make the trip
but every man who has always been
anxious for a flight was “too busy”
that day to go to DuBois. Finally
Miss Hugg volunteered and when pilot
Smith consented to take her lost no
time in getting to the aviation field
and mounting to the cockpit of the
machine. She returned home by train
the next day and avers that she en-
joyed the flight very much.
