place in Bellefonte to spend them than

of two hours of motion picture enter-

tures are appreciated. Get the habit

— A very beautiful memorial
-service in tribute to President Hard-
ing was held Sunday morning in St.
John’s Lutheran church, Bellefonte. It
was featured by special music and an
address by Rev. Wilson P. Ard in
swhich he spoke feelingly of the great

«2d by all men alike.

At the last regular meeting of
the Penn-Centre chapter Order of De-
Molay sixteen petitioners were elect-
wd for degrees and membership. The
fourth week in August has been set
as the time for the next big ceremo-
nial, when the indications are that a
class of about forty will take the de-
grees. The DeMolay band now num-
bers twenty-two and the young men
are practicing diligently for their in-
itial appearance at the Masonic pic-
nic to be held at Curwensville on Au-
——Apiarists all over the county re-
port this as being a poor year for hon-
-ey. The excessive dry weather dur-
ing May and June and the most of Ju-
ly was extremely hard on the various
flowers and literally dried up the red
clover blossoms before they came out
in full bloom. The latter are one of
#he main sources of the early crop of
“honey and because of the dry season
the bees ‘were unable to work with
good results. Throughout Bald Eagle
valley, where buckwheat is a staple
crop, the bees will have more profita-
ble work during the season it is in
blossom. But at that, the honey crop
avill be short this year.
—— Metaphorically speaking, pas-
:senger agent Harry L. Hutchison was
yup in the air on Wednesday morning
-gvhen he discovered that some un-
“known individual, during the previous
might, had literally smashed to smith-
«@reens the glass covering the face of
the ‘penny in the slot weighing ma-
chime standing in front of the station.
“This is the second time that the glass
has been broken and the first time the
individual who committed the vandal-
sm went so far as to steal the hands
4 of the face of the machine. While
Mr. Hutchison does not know the
Fdentity of the individual he gave him
= mame that seems to fit the deed.
CONVICTS MAKE SECOND TRY
AT BREAKING JAIL.
But Now Safely Housed in Concrete
Cells in Death House at
Clair Jamison, Arthur Price and
Edward Fiddell, the three escaped con-
victs who staged a daring escape from
the Centre county jail® at noon last
Thursday, but were foiled in their act
through the bravery and cool headed-
ness of Miss Marion Dukeman, who
clung to Jamison after he had gotten
out into the hallway of the sheriff’s
residence until her father appeared,
and the thoughtfulness of Mrs. Duke-
man in hurriedly locking the jail door
to keep others from getting out, are
now in a safe place for keeping, hav-
ing been transferred on Saturday
night to the western penitentiary at
Rockview and placed in three of the
concrete cells in the death house.
The men have proven to be three
desperate characters. Not content with
their attempt at escape last Thursday
they made an effort on Friday night
to wreck the steel cell in which they
were incarcerated. Immediately fol-
lowing the thrilling incident of Thurs-
day noon the three men were locked
in a steel cell from which the iron bed
and everything that could be convert-
ed into a weapon of destruction had
been removed. Or, at least, so the
sheriff believed. But the men had se-
creted behind the window casing a steel
dinner knife which they nicked to re-
semble a saw and with this rude in-
strument sawed the heads off of a
number of rivets that held the top of
their steel cell in place. When dis-
covered they had succeeded in push-
ing up the heavy slabs of steel and
had a hole almost large enough to
On Friday night, at the request of
the sheriff, two state policemen were
sent here to act as guards and a con-
tinuous watch was placed over the
men. On Saturday district attorney
James C. Furst got into communica-
tion with the warden, John M. Egan,
of the western penitentiary, and asked
that the men be taken back to the pen-
itentiary. Warden Egan was loath to
grant the request, owing to the crowd-
ed condition of the old penitentiary at
Pittsburgh and because of the effect
it might have on the other inmates if
sent back to Rockview. On Saturday
afternoon, however, at the suggestion
of Judge Quigley, warden Egan con-
sented to have the three men taken to
Rockview and imprisoned in the con-
crete cells in the death house, and a
court order was issued by the judge
for a transfer of the men and pro-
viding for their appearance before the
court of Centre county on the fourth
Monday of September to answer to
any and all charges which may at that
time be lodged against them. The
convicts were taken to Rockview be-
tween ten and eleven o’clock on Satur-
day night, all heavily guarded.
While the three men will have to
answer to the Centre county court for
breaking and escaping from the Rock-
view penitentiary and attempted es-
cape from the Centre county jail,
Jamison and Price will have addition-
al charges to face. The former is the
man who hit the sheriff with an iron
bar, cutting a gash on his head, frac-
turing three ribs and seriously injur-
ing his right hand. Price is the man
who brutally beat up Timpco Capella,
the trusty, so that he had to be sent
to the hospital for treatment. Both
men are liable to charges of assault
and aggravated assault with intent to
kill. Itis understood that one or two
of the men have made threats against
the life of the sheriff as well as
against some of the officials at the
penitentiary and this fact will likely
be taken into consideration when they
come before the court in September.
The original sentences of the three
men were from three to five years but
they have enough coming to them now
to send them up for long terms.
Since the removal of the three men
to Rockview things have quieted down
to normal at the jail. The sheriff is
slowly recovering from his injuries,
and Timpco Capella is also getting
along as well as can be expected.
Both he and George Tarbay, the other
trusty who faced the desperate pris-
oners on Thursday, were discharged
from the custody of the sheriff on
Tuesday. The sentences of both men
had almost expired and after their
faithfulness on Thursday the court or-
dered their discharge forthwith.
It is understood that Jamison and
Price have finally decided to plead
guilty to any and all charges to be
made against them and throw them-
selves upon the mercy of the court.
This action on their part will proba-
bly take place early next week. Fid-
dell, however, has so far remained
firm in his decision to stand pat and
not enter a plea of guilty.

Price of Tents Remain the Same.
Notwithstanding the fact that many
costly improvements are being added
to the picnic grounds at Grange park
! there will be no increase in the price
of tents. The fees will be $6.00 for
12x12 tents and $7.00 for 14x14 feet
in size. A fifty cent admission ticket
will admit the holder to the grounds
during the entire week. Pay admis-
sion will begin on Saturday, Septem-
ber 1st, but Sunday will be free to
everybody. The Grange pageant on
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings,
September 4th and 5th, will be some-
thing worth seeing.

Bill Taylor's Horse Likes Roasting
On Tuesday morning H. J. Mar-
kle, of Pleasant Gap, drove to Belle-
fonte with a supply of golden bantam
sweet corn, the first of the home
grown variety offered in the Belle- |
fonte market. Jimmy Caldwell, the
enterprising proprietor of the Bon
Mot, purchased enough ears to make a
good mess and threw them in the rear
‘of his truck to take home later. Now it
just happened that Bill Taylor’s horse |
was standing nearby and the smell of
the green corn evidently appealed to
his taste for he walked right up to the
truck and devoured about one-third
of the corn before he was detected and
led away. The corn was evidently just .
right for eating as one man bought"
half dozen ears, had it cooked’ and até
all of it at one sitting. * 2
Two Hurt in" Auto Accidént.
Driving from Baltimore to Belle-
fonte last Thursday night, or rather
at an early hour on Friday morning,
Albert Jones and two sisters, Miss
Margaret Jones and Mrs. C. C. Work-
man, the latter of Hecla park, met
with an accident in the public square
of the town of Mifflin, in which both
women were painfully injured and the
car was ‘considerably damaged.
It was not only a dark night but an
almost impenetrable fog hung low
over the Juniata valley. A permanent
silent policeman stands in the centre
of the public square of Mifflin. It
stands almost directly beneath an arc
light but no red light tops it as a
warning to travelers. In the dense
fog Mr. Jones was unable to see the
silent majesty of the law and ran up
on the concrete base, his car toppling
over on the side. Miss Margaret sus-
tained a bad cut on the shoulder from
broken glass and Mrs. Workman re-
ceived a cut on the head. Help was
summoned and the women taken to a
physician who rendered the necessary
treatment. The party was obliged to
stay in Mifflin until Saturday, in or-
der to have necessary repairs made to
the car, then continued their drive to
Diphtheria Immunization Program to
be Inaugurated this Month
Tuesday evening at 8 p. m. there
will be a meeting in the Red Cross
room of the committee to complete ar-
rangements for the diphtheria immun-
ization program to be inaugurated
this month in Bellefonte under the su-
pervision of the division of communi-
cable diseases, State Department of
Health, Harrisburg. Dr. Seibert,
county medical director, and Miss
Daise Keichline will have charge of
the work. At the March meeting of
the Parent-Teachers association, Dr,
Bruce McCreary, chief of the division
of communicable diseases, gave an ad-
dress on “Diphtheria and Immuniza-
tion,” and urged the advisability of
community effort to wipe out this dis-
ease and offered the help of free se-
rum, physicians and nurses from the
State department. The suggestion
was endorsed by the association but
was not carried into execution before
June, after which time free serum for
children of school age was not availa-
ble as it must now be purchased, at
low cost, by the board of education in
communities taking up the program.
The campaign to be organized this
month is for children of pre-school
age but it is hoped that our communi-
ty will follow the good example of
Huntingdon and other towns and do
all that is possible to insure our chil-
dren against the dread disease of
| BUSINESS MEN’S PICNIC.
Expect Next Thursday’s Gathering at
; Hecla Park to be Biggest
of the Season.
| If none of their plans miscarry the
| fourth annual picnic of the Associated
| Busines Men of Bellefonte to be held
at Hecla park on Thursday of next
week will be the biggest gathering of
the season at that place. In these
days of automobiles galore it is an
easy matter for anybody living in Cen-
tre county to take a day off and join
the Bellefonte business men in this an-
nual affair. It will be a day of rest
and recreation from business cares
and afford a good opportunity for a
co-mingling of business men from all
the towns and villages with the men,
women and children from the farms
and countryside. No formal invita-
tions will be sent out but this article
is notice to every individual who reads
it that he or she is invited.

take care of all who may attend, re-
gardless of the size of the crowd.
Special arrangements will be made for
the parking of cars and responsible
persons will look after the safety of

will be served on the ground but all
who wish to do so can take their own

Ferguson Township Child Creates
Excitement by Wandering
A two year old, curly haired boy
| created more excitement in Ferguson
| township, on Tuesday, than that com-
munity has witnessed for many a day.
The little lad, Wilmer Andrews, son
of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Andrews, who
occupy the tenant house on the A. C.
Kepler farm in the Glades, wandered
away from home between 8:30 and 9
o'clock in the morning and it was
after six o’clock in the evening when
a party of searchers found him in the
| underbrush. at the foot of Tussey
| mountain, almost a mile from home.
While Mrs. Andrews was busy with
| the family wash, in the rear of their
home the child was allowed to play in
the yard. Naturally the mother
watched him as much as possible but
j at nine o'clock when she looked for
i him he was gone. A thorough search
‘failed in finding him anywhere and
thoroughly alarmed Mrs. Andrews
| summoned help to assist in the search.
‘In less than an hour the entire coun-
tryside was aroused and everybody in
that section was hunting for the lost
Finally some one called district at-
‘torney James C. Furst by telephone
and asked him to have a detail of state
police sent to the scene as the gener-
al impression was that the child had
been kidnapped. The Andrews home
is located right along the state high-
way where hundreds of cars pass dai-
ly. The kidnapping belief was
strengthened by a report that some
cherry pickers along the highway had
heard a child crying “Mother! Moth-
er!” as a car sped by. Motoring gyp-
sies had also been seen in that locali-
ty the previous day. Of course the
situation was desperate and with the
mother frantic over the disappearance
of her child the district attorney call-
ed up state police headquarters in
Harrisburg and asked for two state
policemen. Some men advised secur-
ing blood hounds in an attempt to
trail the child.
The search continued throughout
the afternoon. Several large sink
holes were thoroughly inspected and
practically every foot of ground with-
in reasonable proximity of the An-
drews’ home was searched. It was
well after six o’clock, when the shades
of dusk were beginning to gather,
that a shout went up from a party of
searchers at the foot of Tussey moun-
tain which heralded the fact that the
child had been found. . Tired and al-
‘most famished, his face and hands
scratched by briars through which he
had wandered the boy was located in
the underbrush trying to find his way
The news of the finding of the child,
little the worse for his experience,
spread rapidly and it was only a
question of minutes until he was safe
again in his mother’s arms. :

ters, that his short visit was most refresh-

pecting to visit over Sunday with Mr,

—We had a very interesting caller Wed-
nesday morning. He was J. W. Corl, of
McKeesport. Mr. Corl, as you might infer
from the name, is one of the well known
Corl family that for years has held such
a prominent place in the life of Ferguson
and College townships. He left that com-
munity forty years ago and has made his
home in McKeesport practically ever since.
He is what is called McKeesport’s commer-
cial messenger and for thirty-four years
has been serving that city in an unique
field. Residents who have business in
Pittsburgh, and are unable to attend to it
themselves, “call Corl,” give him the com-
mission and as he personally makes one
trip every day to Pittsburgh they get the
same results as if they had gone them-
selves. Everything from marriage licenses
to groceries, dry goods and theatre tick-
ets is in his line and the fact that he has
been at it so long is the best testimonial
of his integrity and judgment. Mr. Corl
came in Sunday for a week’s vacation, the
first in fifteen years. Mrs. Corl is with
him, also their daughter, Mrs. Naomi
Payne, and her daughter, Dorris. The par-
ty motored in with Mr. Roland Davis, a
friend of the family. >
