The Message of
Five years ago
the secretary of
the State Tuber-
culosis so ciety
came to Belle-
fonte to enlist co-
workers in the
fight against the “white plague” and
was doing his best to win a small
group of listeners to his cause when
one member was called away and, in
departing remarked, “I am glad to
have met you, Mr. D—, and wish you
success in your mission, but think it
an unnecessary work as I do not know
of a single case of tuberculosis.”
“That may be true of Bellefonte,
Mr. M—,” replied the secretary, “but
there are 10,000 deaths annually in
Pennsylvania from this cause and it
is no doubt in your midst but you do
not realize it.”
Five years have passed and that
same group have seen three fine young
men and a charming young woman,
graduates of our High school, loving
to live but, after a desperate fight,
laid in their graves, victims of tuber-
culosis. Four children, ranging in
age from six to twelve years, taken
from the schools to Cresson for treat-
ment; eleven suspect cases in (the
High school that needed and received
medical attention until discharged;
seven advanced cases among adults,
not to mention the patients who have
been attending the State clinic for a
year and are under Dr. David Dale’s
How does the Christmas seal figure
in our story?
Christmas seal funds are used in
combating tuberculosis, through the
employing of nurses and educational
workers; educational efforts as to the
nature, treatment and prevention of
tuberculosis; efforts for the establish-
ment and aiding of nursing, clinic,
hospital and sanitorium service, sum-
mer camps and open air schools;
building up of healthy children; con-
ducting of health surveys; medical
service, and sending patients to san-
In this community, the money has
been used the past year in paying one
hundred dollars for the use of the
room in which the tuberculosis clinic
is held Tuesday afternoons, and, in
financing the work of a dental hygien-
ist for four months in our schools.
The seals are now on sale at Lyon
& Co., Hazels, and Cohen’s dry goods
stores, Motts’ and Runkle’s drug
stores, the Bush house and Bickett’s
pool room in the Brant house, and
from volunteer workers who are mak-
ing a house-to-house sale. The seal
is only a tiny bit of paper but it is a
wonderful messenger of health and
hope as it flies through the mails.

Brothers Die a Week Apart.
On Thursday, November 22nd, Wil-
liam Longwell died at his home in
Gassaway, W. Va., and his brether
Thad, who came east from Iowa to at-
tend the funeral, died just one week
later at the home of his sister, Miss
Elizabeth Longwell, in Bellefonte.
Both were sons of William Hamilton
and Anna Marshall Longwell, omne-
time well known residents of Belle-
William H. Longwell, the first to
pass away, was born in Bellefonte on
July 26th, 1864, hence was in his six-
tieth year. His boyhood days were
spent here but at the age of twenty
years he went to Manassas, Va., where
he accepted a position in a large hard-
ware store. That place was his home
until about thirteen years ago when
he moved to Gassaway, W. Va., where
he was in the employment of a rail-
road company. His death was the
result of stomach trouble with which
he had been ailing for two years or
While living in Manassas he mar-
ried Miss Elizabeth Alexander Sin-
clair who survives with six children,
namely: Mrs. O. D. Waters, of Ma-
nassas; W. H. Longwell, of Clarks-
burg, W. Va.; Mrs. Omer Frame, Mrs.

thur L., all of Gassaway. The re-
mains were taken to Manassas, Va.
where funeral services were held and
burial made on Sunday, November
Thaddeus Mitchell Longwell, who
came east for the funeral of his
brother, came to Bellefonte on Wed-
nesday afternoon of last week for a
brief visit before returning home. The
day before he left home his family
physician told him he was afflicted
with valvular heart trouble, but if he
avoided strenuous exercise of all kinds
there was no reason why he shouldn’t
make the trip. On Wednesday even-
ing he attended prayer meeting in the
Presbyterian chapel and when he re-
tired that night felt as well as ever.
At five o’clock Thursday morning he
called his sister and said he was very
sick. A physician was called as
quickly as possible but his condition
was such that he was beyond help and
he passed away at 3:25 o’clock the
Deceased was born in Bellefonte on
July 8th, 1862, hence was 61 years, 4
months and 21 days old. His boyhood
life was also spent in Bellefonte and
as a young man he learned telegra-
phy under the late W. L. Malin, who
had charge of the Western Union tel-
egraph office. Having mastered the
key he was given a job in the railroad
office at Milesburg, being later trans-
ferred to Snow Shoe. From the latter
place he went to Steelton where he
spent twelve years in the credit de-
partment of the Steelton Store com-
pany. Returning to Bellefonte he was
with the Central Railroad of Pennsyl-
vania company five years then went
to Belington, W. Va., where he was
identified with a coal company for
eighteen months after which he mov-
ed to DesMoines, Iowa, where he has
since been in the employ of the Rock
Island Railroad company.
While living in Snow Shoe he mar-
ried Miss Mary Curtis Byers, of Lew-
isburg, who survives with four chil-
dren, Mrs. Claude Casebeer, Joseph
and Anna, all of Des Moines, and Mrs.
Daniel Stearns, of Ottumwa, Iowa.
The brothers are also survived by one
sister, Miss Elizabeth Longwell, of
Bellefonte, and one brother, S. Linn,
whose present whereabouts are un-
known. Both men were members of
the Presbyterian church.
Notified of his father’s sudden
death Joseph Longwell came east from
DesMoines and made arrangements
for the shipment of the body to its
late home. Consequently brief funer-
al services were held at the Longwell
home at 1:30 o’clock on Sunday after-
noon by Rev. Dr. Schmidt, and the re-
mains were taken west on the 3:08 p.
m. train. Burial was made in Des-
Moines on Tuesday afternoon.
