On Tuesday morning Harry

Teal money it lay there for an hour
until Miss Ruth Bertram came along,
saw it and going into the store asked
for the bill. It was promptly given

that the average person is rather sus-
picious of a real bargain even when
he sees it.
Sixty-nine Republican women
of Bellefonte, State College and Phil-

at the Bush house, on Tuesday even-

gathering, and landlord Lewis Dag-

praiseworthy comment for the cosy
arrangement of his dining room and
the beauty of the decorations. Of
course the menu served was all that
could be desired and every one pres-
ent enjoyed the occasion very much.
The chief speaker of the evening was
Miss Lola Walker, of Pittsburgh, a
representative of the State Republi-
«an women’s association.
| HALLOW-EEN CARNIVAL DREW
A LARGE CROWD.
Many Mummers Make Merry at Elk’s
The fourth annual Hallow-een car-
nival of the Bellefonte Lodge of Elks,
i held on Wednesday evening, might be
literally termed a howling success.
The large crowd was merry mad and
after the parade was over so jammed
the pavement in front of the Elks
that women and children screamed
and it was little less than a miracle
that nobody was hurt. In fact it took
the combined efforts of a score of Elks
and a number of special policemen to
clear the street so that the ticket
holders could get into the Elk’s home
to be judged for prizes.
HARVEST QUEEN CONTEST.
Naturally interest in the car-
nival centered in the contest for the
Harvest Queen, and notwithstanding
the fact that there were only three
entries this year it far and away
eclipsed any similar contest held in
previous years. The contest closed on
Tuesday night and the judges were
literally swamped with votes. A
count was made every hour and the
result posted on the bulletin board,
but it was not until the final count at
ten o’clock that the winner was defi-
nitely decided, and it proved to be
Miss Mauvis Furey, of Bellefonte.
The total vote cast for the three con-
testants was as follows:
Mauvis Furey - - - 91180
Margaret Mignot - - - 49620
Elizabeth Miller = - - 27850
Total - - - 168650
The first Harvest Queen contest
was held in 1921 when the total vote
cast for the six contestants was 71645.
Last year four young ladies stayed to
the finish and their combined vote was
but 41450, so that the vote this year
far exceeded the vote of both previous
Notwithstanding the fact that the
weather on Wednesday evening was
extremely cool thousands of people
turned out to see the big parade. In
fact the spectators were probably
more numerous than ever before but
the parade fell short of that of last
year. The Mummer’s division was
the chief feature and all those who
took part in it deserve great credit
for their trouble and expense neces-
sarily entailed in providing the var-
ied characterizations and costumes.
While it was utterly impossible for
any one to appraise the merits of each
costume, for many splendid ones were
concealed by the jam of the revelers,
a few that stood out so strikingly that
they caught every eye were the walk-
ing corn shock—a splendid get-up by
Edward Owens. The four balloon girls,
Mrs. W. C. Snyder; of Snow Shoe,
Mrs. Edmund Blanchard, Mrs. Donald
Potter and Mrs. Craig, were so strik-
ingly gotten up that almost they
might just have stepped out of the
chorus of the Follies onto High street,
Bellefonte. The “Bride and Groom,”
“The Cats’ Meows,” the two “Dutch
Cleanser” women, the “white bun-
nie,” the tall man with the taffy wig
the drum major of Wetzler’s band,
and “The Grand Dame,” were splen-
did characterizations and attracted
attention everywhere. As we have
said before there were countless othar
splendid characters but we missed
The feature of the float section was,
of course, the Fauble stores entry.
Evidently a lot of time had been de-
voted to its preparation and that ex-
penditure was well repaid by the
striking results obtained for we have
scarcely ever seen a more pleasingly
decorated car. All of the work on it
was done by William Shoop and im-
possible as it may sound not a tack
or bit of glue was used to mar the
finish of the limousine that was used.
As in former years the parade
formed on Bishop street and moved
promptly at 8 o’clock. While Capt.
William H. Brown was chief marshall
George Washington Rees was gener-
alissimo. The Elks, topped with
pumpkin colored hats, led off under
escort of Wetzler’s band with Warren
Wood as a “colored” drum major.
Next came the float with the Harvest
Queen and her two ladies in waiting,
Miss Mignot and Miss Miller. The
Mummer’s division was led by the
'Odd Fellows band. ‘The Coontown
band equipped with drums, pans and
pan lids from the Bellefonte Hard-
ware company’s store composed the
tail end of the Mummer’s division.
Then came the Lemont band, Knights
of the Golden Eagle and Red Men.
In the division of “floats” not a
float was entered. The fire companies
had their pumpers and hook and lad-
der trucks in line and half a dozen
decorated automobiles, chief among
which was that of A. Fauble, made up
this part of the parade.
A dozen or more men and women
acted as judges and as the parade
passed the judges’ stand the second
time the Mummers were marshalled
past by twos and all those considered
in the running for a prize were giv-
en a red ticket requiring them to re-
port inside the Elks home immediate-
ly after the parade. Naturally the
big rooms were jammed and notwith-
standing the fact that efforts were
made to secure a complete list of the
prize winners there was such a jam,
coupled with a mix-up in tickets, that
it was impossible to get a list, and
that is the reason the winners cannot
be announced in this issue of the
During the parade one of the Ro-
man candles exploded and a portion
of the burning material fell on Mrs.
| Casebeer’s foot, burning her enough
that she was compelled to leave the
judges’ stand and seek the services of
a physician. The only other accident
happened to Mrs. William Resides,
who rode in the parade as “Uncle
Her horse stumbled and fell
and she was thrown off, but aside
from a slight disarrangement of her
costume she was uninjured and re-
mounting completed the parade.
Following the parade a charity ball
was held in the armory and the im-
mense building was jammed with
merry-makers. In fact the crowd was
too large for comfortable dancing.
While it is impossible at this time
to give the net receipts of the big
frolic they will be larger than in any
former year. The gross receipts from
the Harvest Queen contest were
gross from four to five hundred dol-
lars, but the expenses this year were
also greater than ever before. At
that, it is estimated that the net
amount should approximate $1500, all
of which will be turned over to the
Girls Win Sparks Scholarship Prizes.
Two girl residents of State College
were awarded the President Sparks
prizes for having attained high schol-
arship at Penn State College, at spe-
cial exercises held on Tuesday of last
week. Miss Anna Haddow, who won
the prize last year, was awarded the
certificate this year, and Miss Helen
E. Cleaver won the medal.
Brotherhood Elects Officers.
At a meeting of St. John’s Luth-

Temporarily Saved from the Electric
Aneglo Fargasso and Marcentonio
Daniele, two alleged Black Hand Ital-
ians convicted in Washington county
of killing Gabriele Fiori, of East Can-
nonsburg, escaped electrocution at the
Rockview penitentiary on Monday
morning by a close shave. Taking no
chances of possible attempt at rescue
the sheriff of Washington county
transported the two men from Wash-
ington, Pa., to Rockview by automo-
bile. Traveling in three cars and ac-
companied by a half dozen burly
guards the party left Washington at
midnight last Friday night and drove
to Centre county, delivering their
prisoners to the authorities at Rock-
view about noon on Saturday.
On Saturday afternoon men inter-
ested in the fate of the two Italians
brought to the attention of Governor
Pinchot an alleged confession on the
part of Fargasso that Daniele had
taken no part in the murder, which re-
sulted in a stay being granted on Sun-
day evening until the week of Decem-

again be taken before the board of
Planning to Rush Work at Rockview
Plans for hurrying construction of
tiers of cells at the Rockview peni-
tentiary to relieve over-crowded con-
ditions in the eastern and western
penitentiaries were discussed in Har-
rishurg at a meeting last week of the
trustees of the western penitentiary,
warden John Egan, superintendent of
construction J. O. Stutzman, Governor
Pinchot, Dr. Ellen Potter and Attor-
ney General Woodruff.
The plans involve expenditure of
$250,000 remaining from the unlapsed
1921 appropriation for building con-
struction, and $245,000 appropriated
this year. Mr. Woodruff was asked
whether the unlapsed funds which
originally were appropriated for tiers
of concrete cell blocks could be used
for some other form of construction
work which would bring more speedy
Among the plans discussed was one
for the erection of permanent dormi-
tories to accommodate about 200 pris-
oners each, with a permanent plan
for separate buildings in the general
scheme of Rockview construction.
The plans do not contemplate scrap-
ping tiers already contracted for by
the old board.

asked if limestone quarried at Rock-
view by prisoners could be sold to'the

A Partner in a Great Humanitarian
“Will you become a stockholder in
the American Red Cross?” said a
great philosopher. “I can think of
no better way of spending one’s time
and money than trying to make this
old world a better, happier and more
pleasant place for everybody to live
in.” Will you do your share? The
Red Cross needs your support. Amer-
ica’s great humanitarian effort in be-
half of stricken Japan early in Sep-
tember gave the answer to the ques-
tion, “What is there for the Red Cross
to do in time of peace?” Prepared-
ness to take the field when relief is
needed is a charter duty of the Red
Cross. Without a membership en-
.rolled in every community in the land
this readiness would be impossible.
Since opinion is divided between the
importance of National and local
work, the classes of membership are
CLASSES OF MEMBERSHIP.
The classes of American National
Red Cross memberships, the amount
of the dues for each, the purposes to
which these dues are devoted, and the
way in which they are divided, are in-
Class of membership and amount of
dues: Annual, $1.00; contributing,
$5.00; sustaining, $10.00; supporting,
$25.00. Fifty cents out of each one
of the above goes to the support of
national and international Red Cross
work, while for the support of the
work in our home community the ap-
portionment is 50 cts, $4.50, $9.50 and
$24.50 respectively. Life memberships
are $50.00 and patrons $100.00, devot-
ed entirely to the permanent endow-
ment fund, only the interest on which
can be used for general relief pur-
If you desire to divide your mem-
bership equally, then become a one-
dollar member when fifty cents goes
to national work, fifty to local. If
you prefer to support local more gen-
erously than national work, lump your
one-dollar memberships in a family,
say into a two or three-dollar mem-
bership when only fifty cents will go
to the National Red Cross. The edu-
cational work of our Red Cross public
health nursing service has been
brought to you monthly through re-
ports published in all the town pa-
pers, as well as the yearly report pub-

Many Hunters Out Yesterday for
Opening of Hunting Season.
Wild turkeys, pheasant, quail,
squirrel, rabbits and bear, are now
legal game for the hunter’s gun, the
season for all the above having open-
ed yesterday and will continue for one
month, with the exception of bear and
rabbits, which extend to December
Naturally the woods were full of
hunters yesterday morning, about
ninety per cent. of the men who own-
ed a gun, or could borrow one, having
gone out to try their luck. Wild tur-
keys and pheasants were the prizes
sought by most of the hunters, as it is
a little too warm for rabbits and
squirrel are not plentiful enough to be
attractive to the hunter who covets
some return for his time and labor.
While wild turkeys are not over-
running the woodlands nice flocks of
them have been reported in various
sections of the county, and the hunt-
er who is able to bring one down has
something worth carrying home.
Pheasants are quite numerous in all
sections of the county and most of the
hunters made a try at bagging a few
