John Noll.
For no man in this community had
the lamented former editor of this pa-
per a higher regard. P. Gray Meek
and John Noll were friends, political-
ly and socially. They were contem-
poraries in Democratic politics in
Centre county and in Pennsylvania
and came to know and esteem one
another so highly that the bond that
drew them together was broken only
when the former was laid to rest in
We have known few men, not
inspired by personal or selfish aspira-
tions, who have kept so intimately in
touch with governmental affairs, lo-
cal, State and National. Mr. Noll was
of the old type; one of the men who
contended for principle. He was
blunt, outspoken and fearless in the
expression of his convictions and un-
falteringly true to them and his
friends. Socially he was most com-
panionable. With a wonderful facul-
ty of remembering faces and names
and a disposition that was, in a sense,
magnetic he knew and was known all
over Pennsylvania and that was prin-
cipally because until the end he was
as young in heart and spirit as he was
when he gallantly marched away to
the defense of his country in 1864,
when only eighteen years old.
We who are left to carry on in this
office know that a shadow has fallen
over the trail. A light that guided
and cheered has been withdrawn. Al-
ways his counsel was good and his
hopeful, happy disposition an inspi-
The “Watchman” pays sincere trib-
ute to the character and the works of
John Noll.
——Judge Thompson, of Philadel-
phia, has put a crimp in Governor
Pinchot’s plan to close the saloons.
This fixes Judge Thompson among the
traitors in the mind of Mr. Pinchot.
——Mr. Firpo has abandoned his
purpose to become a citizen of the
United States but so far as we are
able to learn “the government at
Washington still lives.”
——Big business is butting into af-
fairs in gcvernment in Germany in a
way that may do vast harm. Big bus-
iness makes big profits out of war and
prefers war to peace.
——We are getting along fairly
well: without a Vice President, which
encourages the belief that there are a
good many other redundant officers on
the pay roll.
——A contemporary thinks the only
safe place to go on Sunday is the
church. But you take some risk in
going to and returning from church.
——Two Senators and five Repre-
sentatives in Congress have returned
from Russia within a week and the
air will soon be filled with talksky.
——Governor Pinchot is looking for
a coal operator who is willing to cut
his profits for the benefit of the pub-
lic but his searchlight is too weak.
—~——All pity should not be sent to
Oklahoma. The Ku Klux is bad
enough but in Arizona they have
started the marathon dances.
——Probably the early migration
southward of wild geese is to escape
the increased cost of coal.
——Jolly old King Coal has resum-
ed his throne and Gifford Pinchot is
his Prime Minister.

NOLL.—John Noll, who has been
so intimately identified with the his-
tory and material upbuilding of Belle-
fonte during the past half century, |
passed away at his home on east
Bishop street at 9:30 o’clock on Wed-
nesday evening. For the past eigh-
teen months or more he had been a
| sufferer with hardening of the ar-
teries which of late had developed in-
to a series of heart attacks. Not-
withstanding his debilitated condition
he was down town as late as Satur-
day and on Sunday walked out into
his garden. Sunday night he suffer-
ed another attack and he had not the
power of resistance to overcome it.
Mr. Noll was a son of Samuel and
Rebecca Tibbens Noll and was born
on the farm near Pleasant Gap in
1845, in fact he celebrated his seven-
| ty-eighth anniversary on September
{ 20th. His boyhood days were spent
on the farm but when he grew to
manhood he learned the trade of a
stone mason. When less than nine-
teen years of age, or on February
25th, 1864, he enlisted in Company A,
19th Pennsylvania cavalry, for serv-
ice during: the Civil war, the greater
part of his activities being in the de-
partment of the southwest. He made
a splendid soldier and won promotions
to corporal, duty sergeant and quar-
termaster sergeant, being honorably
discharged on June 5th, 1866.
Returning to Bellefonte he resumed
his work as a stone mason and many
buildings in Bellefonte and surround-
ing community are enduring monu-
ments of his skill. He assisted in the
building of the present residence of
Col. W. F. Reynolds and helped in the
remodeling of the Hastings and Col.
J. L. Spangler homes. With advanc-
ing years the work was too strenu-
ous and he purchased the laundry on
south Water street which he conduct-
ed for five years, or until it was de-
stroyed by fire a few years ago, since
| which time he had lived a retired life.
* A Democrat of the Jeffersonian
type he’ always took a great interest
in politics with the result that in 1904
he was elected a member of the Leg-
islature from Centre county and was
re-elected in 1906, serving two terms
with faithfulness and fidelity. In
1918 he was again nominated for the
same office but was defeated by I. L.
Six years ago he became a member
of the Presbyterian church and had
since lived consistent with its doc-
trines. He was a member of Gregg
Post No. 95, G. A. R., the Centre
county Veteran Legion, a Mason for
thirty-five years, a member of the
Royal Arcanum and the B. P. O. E.
As a young man he was united in
marriage to Miss Mary Hamilton,
who survives with three children,
Charles T. Noll, of Altoona; Mrs.
George N. VanDyke, of Wilkinsburg,
and Miss Roberta, at home. He also
leaves a number of grand-children
and one sister, Mrs. Lucy Stine, of
Revs. T. W. Young, E. E. McKel-
vey and Dr. Ambrose M. Schmidt
will officiate at the funeral services
which will be held at his late home at
2:30 o’clock tomorrow afternoon, after
which burial will be made in the
Union cemetery.

TURNER.—Harry Elwood Turner,
a well known drayman of Bellefonte,
died very suddenly and unexpectedly
about 9:30 o’clock last Saturday
morning as the result of heart fail-
ure. For- several days he had been
suffering with a cold but went to work
on Saturday morning as usual. About
9:30 o'clock he drove his wagon to his
home on south Potter street and asked
several men ‘standing there to help
him out of the wagon and into his
home, as he was very sick, but he
died before they reached the house.
Mr. Turner was a son of William
G. and Elsie Peters Turner and was
born at Unionville on February 24th,
1856, hence was in his sixty-eighth
year. He followed farming in Union
township most of his life, coming to
Bellefonte about fifteen years ago.
He married Miss Catherine Sharp, of
Unionville, who survives with four
children, Hugh E. and Rena, at
home; Mrs. Frank Handley and Clar-
ence, of Buffalo, N. Y. He also leaves

McCoy, and the following brothers
and sisters: George, of Munson;
Stewart, of Malaga, N. J.; Mrs. John
Askin, of Unionville; Miss May Tur-
ner, of Washington, Pa., and Miss
Louise, of Unionville.
Funeral services were held at his
late home at ten o'clock on Wednes-

Capt. E. R. “Dick” TAYLOR.
Capt. Taylor was born in Belle-
fonte, November 27th, 1878, and all
, of his life has been spent in this com-
‘munity, with the exception of the
years he has served abroad with the
army of our country. His education
was secured-in the public schools and
at the age of sixteen he entered an
apprenticeship for the plumbing
trade which he mastered in such a
way as to earn for himself the reputa-
tion of being a splendid mechanic.
For a man not yet forty-five years
of age he has a military record which
we feel is scarcely equalled by any
man living who has not made soldier-
ing his profession. On July 2nd,
1895, he enlisted as a private in Co.
B, 5th Reg. N. G. P. and served with
that organization until the outbreak
of the Spanish-American war, in
1898. On April 27th of that year the
regiment was called into service and
he was with it until it was mustered
out on the 11th of the following No-
When President McKinley called
for volunteers to put down the Phil-
ippine insurrection in 1899 Dick re-
sponded. He enlisted September
9th, 1899, and was assigned to Co. D,
47th Reg. as a private. Before sail-
ing for the Philippines he was pro-
moted to a sergeant and on November
2nd shipped for the scene of a long
and hazardous campaign. He was
fighting insurrectos for nineteen
months. In that time he took part in
twenty-nine major engagements and
after returning to the States was hon-
orably discharged on July 2nd, 1901.
A month after his return he took
charge of the repair work at the
Beilefonte gas and steam plant and a
month later was made assistant su-
perintendent, which position he capa-
bly filled until the fall of 1909, when
he resigned to accept the position of
military instructor in the Pennsylva-
nia Industrial Reformatory at Hunt-
ingdon. This position he filled with
marked ability until the call for pa-
triotism again brought him to Uncle
Sam and he enlisted with Troop L,
1st Penna. Cavalry, on June 25th,
1916, for service on the Mexican bor-
der. There he served with rank of a
Lieutenant for seven months and up-
on the return home of his command
he resumed his position in Hunting-
don. While drilling with Troop L, at
this place, on May 6th, 1917, he was
accidentally kicked by a horse and
suffered a broken leg. But two
months later we find him volunteer-
ing for service in the world war and
going off to Camp Hancock with his
troop. There it was disbanded and
“Dick” was assigned to Co. K, 110th
Inf., of which organization he was in
command. They sailed for France
May 2nd, 1917, and were fifteen days
His first work on the other side
was in support of the British, French
and Marines and digging trenches
which kept him busy until July 12th,
when his command was sent to the
front line. Two days later, when the
Germans started their last big offen-
sive, he was in the fighting.
He was’ in the front line acting
with the French and was out recon-
noitering a position near Courthiezy,
on the Marne, that his company was
to take over on July 18th, when he
was surprised by a squad of Germans
and taken prisoner. He remained in
the hands of the Huns until Novem-
ber 27th, when he was released, but
was in such a condition that he could
not rejoin his command for a month.
After his capture he was promoted to
the rank of Captain and when he was
mustered out of the service, May
24th, 1919, his men presented him
with a gold watch as a mark of their
esteem for him as a commander and
as a man.
In infancy he was baptized in the
Episcopal church by the late Rev.
John Hewitt and has been a commu-
nicant member of that denomination
ever since. Capt. Taylor is married
and has a family of five children.
——A Ku Klux Klan cross was
burned on the grounds of the Belle-
fonte hospital, about eight o’clock on
Monday evening. The cross was put
up on the brow of the hill just south
of the laundry and so quietly was the
work done that no one ahout the hos-
pital heard or saw a thing until the
cross was on fire. Let us 2'l hope
that the burning of the cross so close
to the hospital means that a concert-
ed effort is to be made to help that
institution financially.
——According to tentative plans of
the Methodist congregation pastor E.
E. McKelvey and family will move
into their new home, the Spiglemyer
house recently purchased by the con-
gregation, on or about November
first. Several parties are now con-
sidering the purchase of the present
parsonage on east Linn street.
An Appeal in the Interest of Sports.
| A chain is as strong as its weakest
! link. . A mind is only strong if the
body is developed to withstand the at-
tacks of disease and the inroads of
| fatigue. The importance of physical
training has long been recognized by
i the educators of the present day, and
the Bellefonte school board has al-
ways endeavored to emphasize that
part of the training of the boys and
girls in the schools of Bellefonte.
In the past, however, physical train-
ing has been restricted to the few
who have competed for positions on
the football, baseball and basket-ball
squads. That is no longer the goal.
The ultimate aim of athletics in the
Bellefonte High school is mass athlet-
ics, that is, to have every boy and
girl in High school interested in, and
competing in a sport of some kind.
There are practically twenty-five
contestants for" football honors this
year. In basket-ball not only are
there varsity boys’ and girls’ teams,
but the inter-class league affords op-
portunity for participation in this
sport to over thirty additional stu-
dents. Track activities in the past
two years have created considerable
interest and each spring finds numer-
ous candidates out practicing for po-
sitions on both boys’ and girls’ teams.
| And the baseball squad draws its full
quota of enthusiasts upon the dia-
{ mond.
These are but the beginnings of
what it is hoped to obtain in the line
of athletics in the Bellefonte High
school. Boxing and wrestling classes
| make their initial appearance this
year. Field hockey for the girls is no
longer a mere dream of the future,
but nearly an actual realization;
while tennis and golf teams are al-
ready in the making.
In passing it should be emphasized
that the value of competitive sports
lies not only in the physical benefits
derived therefrom, but in the charac-
ter moulding. The idea is not merely |
to build up teams that win, but to |
teach to the coming generations the
values of preparation, training, co-
operation, and obedience, and the es-
sentials of fair play and sportsman-
In order to bring to completion
these plans it is necessary that a cer-
tain amount of capital outlay be fur-
nished. A practice field has been se-
cured at the cost of one hundred dol-
lars per year. Equipment for protec-
tion of the players and for their prop-
er instruction, is always needed. The
Bellefonte school board cannot possi-
bly render assistance in this matter.
Therefore it devolves upon the towns-
people to determine whether or not
they wish this physical and character
development to continue.
If you do wish it, will you not make
a substantial contribution to the
Bellefonte High school athletic asso-
ciation, so that the good work may
carry on?

S. Claude Herr, Democratic nomi-
nee for Prothonotary of Centre coun-
ty, was born at Salona, Pa., April 6th,
1877. He is a son of Martin W. and
Lydie Burrell Herr, his father having
been a school teacher and was a mem-
ber of the faculty of the Bellefonte
Academy in 1876. Mr. Herr’s early
life was spent in the vicinity of Sa-
lona, where he attended the public
schools and afterward went to the
Lock Haven High and Normal.
At the age of thirteen he started a
farming enterprise with his brother
and stuck to the soil until he
was twenty. Then he took employ-

superintendent of the plant.
On April 15th, 1915, he purchased
the Robert Morris grocery store in
the Eagle block, and formed the part-
nership of Herr and Heverly which
has been so successfully conducting
the business ever since.
Mr. Herr is a member and trustee
of the Bellefonte Methodist church, a
trustee of the Y. M. C. A., president
of the Business Men’s Association,

By nature, by mental qualifications,
and by sterling integrity he is splen-
didly equipped for the office he seeks.
