Antonio Calendo, of Allegheny
county, had a narrow escape from the
death chair on Monday morning. He
was brought to the Rockview peniten-
tiary on Saturday for electrocution
on Monday morning, but at 2:30
o'clock, less than five hours before the
hour for him to go to the chair, he was
granted a respite by Governor Pin-
Frank B. Patton, who died at
his home in Huntingdon, last week,
was the last of the family of the late
T. B. Patton, for thirty-two years su-
perintendent of the Huntingdon Re-
formatory. Mr. Patton is survived
only by his wife, who before her mar-
riage was Miss Margaret Bell, the
only daughter of Charles Bell, a for-
mer resident of Bellefonte.
The recent appointment of Miss
Rebecca N. Rhoads to a membership
of the board of directors of the Na-
tional Anti-Saloon League, comes to
her as a great honor, inasmuch as she
is the second woman ever to serve in
‘that capacity, the first being the wife
of one of the southern Governors, and
also that the representation from each
State is limited to five persons.
Two of the biggest and best
motion pictures ever filmed will be
shown at the cpera house and Scenic
during the coming week, and popular
prices will prevail. This fact, how-
ever, will not detract from the regular

will be kept un to their always high
standard. No lover of the screen can

On Tuesday Walter Cohen, of
Cohen and Co., purchased the Thomp-

in this locality is that of Charles E.
Aull and Mrs. Ethel Johnston, which
took place Wednesday, in Middletown,
Ohio, in the presence of only the im-
mediate members of the family, an
accident of ten days ago in which Mr.
Aull had had his foot crushed, neces-
sitating the cancelling of all social af-
fairs connected with the event. Mu.
and Mrs. Aull will live in Middletown,
where they are now building a home.
A big ten pound chocolate
Easter egg was disposed of at the
Hugh B. Wagner candy store, on Sat-
urday night, for the benefit of the
Bellefonte hospital. .The lucky man
was James K. Barnhart, cashier of
the First National bankg who got it
for twelve cents. On Monday Mr.
Wagner turned over to the treasurer
-of the hospital a check for $31.17, the
proceeds from the egg, so that it was
not only the biggest egg ever seen in
Bellefonte but a most lucrative one
for the hospital, as well.
Some weeks ago the Brother-
hood of St. John’s Lutheran church, of
Bellefonte, issued a card entitled
“Some Suggestions to Ushers,” which
contained ten simple rules governing
the work of the usher in a church. A
card was furnished to each usher, and
to the credit of all of them, it has re-
sulted as a magic wand in smoothing
out and perfecting their work. Rev.
Ard thought the card good enough to
send a copy to one of the church pa-
pers, “The Expositor,” and the editors
evidently were of the same opinion as
they published it complete as sugges-
tions to ushers in all churches.
After having served as pastor
of the Reformed charge at Boalsburg
the past eighteen and a half years
Rev. S. C. Stover has resigned to ac-
cept a call to the Zion charge at Ber-
lin, Somerset county. The change
will mean an increase of $300 a year
in salary and a free parsonage equip-
ped with all modern conveniences.
Rev. Stover will go to Somerset coun-
ty to enter upon the work of his new
pastorate on or about June first.
‘While his parishioners at Boalsburg
are naturally sorry to lose his valua-
ble services they should rejoice in the
fact that he has been called to a larg-
er field of usefulness.
KIWANIS DETERMINED TO PUT |
THE DRIVE OVER THE TOP.
At the regular noon luncheon of
Kiwanis, on Tuesday, there was no |
flagging of interest, or lack of deter-
mination to finish the job of putting
the drive for $100,000. for the hos-
pital over the top.
The facts that the campaign direc-
tor, Mr. Roy, has departed and that
the date for the formal ending of the
drive has passed abate nothing. Ki-,
wanis set out to do the work and is
not going to stop until it is complete.
Reports from all of the county, ex-
cept the State College district and
Snow Shoe show that the fund has
crossed the $80,000 mark.
State College, which includes Col-
lege, Harris, Ferguson, Patton and
Halfmoon townships, reported about
$10,000 in sight and expects to give
$15,000 when its final report is made
at the luncheon next Tuesday.
Snow Shoe will not report for some
time, because the mines in that sec-
tion are not operating and it is the
opinion of the lieutenants out there
that the present is not propitious for
their drive. Though they are confi-
dent that with normal business con-
ditions they will have no trouble in
raising their quota of $4000.00.
If the College and Snow Shoe come
through the goal will be reached and
passed, for every day unexpected
checks are coming in from former
Centre countians who are living in
REV. ARD HONORED.
Rev. Wilson P. Ard, president of
Kiwanis, was honored at the Tuesday's
meeting, by being chosen delegate to
the International convention of Ki-
wanians at Denver, Col., in June. The
nominating committee named only one
candidate and its selection was unan-
imously approved. :
The Tuesday luncheon was dynam-
ic in more ways than enthusisam for
hospital success. It was electrified by
Kiwanian Blair—not by song or
speech—however. He had secreted
an electric wire under all of the ta-
bles and so completed contacts that
when the members picked up their
knives and forks all of them got an
electric shock. Everything they
touched was charged and it was quite
a while before the cause was disclos-
The attendance prize was won by
Kiwanian John Knisely.
Big Sale of Lots on “Halfmoon
Years ago Bellefonte had its “Bun-
ker Hill,” “Quaker Hill,” “Halfmoon
Hill,” “Cheap Side,” and various oth-
er cognomens for local districts but
most of them have been thrown into
the discard and now Haupt & Brown
are going to do away with Halfmoon
Hill, which in the future is to be
known as “Halfmoon Terrace.”
Several weeks ago the “Watchman”
published a brief item announcing
the fact that the above gentlemen,
who own practically the entire Ter-
race, had recently sold a number of
building lots in their plan, but it is
nothing to the big sale they are going
to put on on Saturday, May 3rd, when
a public sale of lots will be held on
the ground. An experienced auction-
eer has been engaged and all lots will
be sold to the highest bidder.
To attract prospective purchasers
the owners have decided to give away
absolutely free one lot in a desirable
location. There are absolutely no
strings to this proposition, and no ob-
ligations will be entailed upon the
lucky winner of the lot.
It is a well known fact that no
available building lots are to be had
in the main part of Bellefonte, and if
the town is to expand it can do so
only by building outward, and no
more available space is offered than
Halfmoon Terrace. Because of this
fact all persons contemplating having
2 home of their own some day should
attend this big sale of lots on Satur-
day, May 3rd.
A Musical Treat.
The people of Bellefonte will have
an opportunity, on Sunday evening,
April 27th, in St. John’s Catholic
church, to enjoy sacred music of the
loftiest tone, produced in-a finished
manner, by the famous male choir of
St. Columba’s church of Johnstown.
Religion has always gone hand in
hand with art. Religious emotion was
the source from which sprang the
beauty of Gothic architecture. “Those
poems in stone” which adorn the con-
tinent of Europe are expression of
the same ennobling inspiration. As
religion deals with God and the things
of God the music developed by it has
come through the centuries of Catho-
licity to be a treasure supernal in
grace and uplift.
An idea of that wealth of beauty
may be obtained by hearing this choir
Sunday evening. Its leader, Dr. Pe-
ter McAneny, obtained his musical
education in Italy, studying under a
teacher by whom most of the present
grand opera singers were trained.
William Askey Killed in Coal Mine.
william Askey, a former resident
of Philipsburg, was killed in a cave-
in of a coal mine at Fulton Run, In-
diana county, last Thursday. He was
forty-seven years old, a son of Thom-
as and Mary Elizabeth Askey, and
was born in Bald Eagle valley. When
he was a boy the family moved to
Philipsburg and there he grew to
manhood and married Miss Mary Cad-
wallader. Twelve children were the
result of their union, eleven of whom,
with his widow, survive. He also
leaves his parents, one brother and a
sister. The remains were taken to
Philipsburg where burial was made on

Church Struck by Lightning.
During the thunder storm on Sun-
day morning lightning struck the
Methodist church in Philipsburg while
the congregation was worshipping at
the Easter services. Those on the
outside who witnessed the incident
state that it looked as if a huge red-
hot ball of iron had fallen from the
sky and hit the tall steeple. The
church lights were extinguished and
falling plaster caused a cloud of dust
to settle over the new Easter hats and
dresses. Naturally members of the
congregation became frightened and
some attempted a hasty flight from the
church but they were quickly calmed
by the ushers and the pastor, Rev. R.
S. Oyler, who started singing a hymn
familiar to all. A hasty examination
showed the steeple pretty badly dam-
aged but no timbers displaced and
most of the congregation remained in
church until the end of the services.
Two Prisoners Escape in Style.
John Adriana, of Allegheny county,
and Charles Henry Wasser, of Mercer
county, escaped from the western pen-
itentiary at Rockview, about 9:30
o’clock on Saturday night, and instead
of heading direct to the mountains
hot-footed it into Bellefonte, stole two
raincoats from Oscar Zimmerman’s
garage and walking in south Water
street discovered a Ford car standing
in front of Decker Bros. garage. With
apparent unconcern they climbed in-
to the machine, started it and disap-
peared. On Sunday morning the car
was found over near Reedsville where
it had been
gas supply gave out. At this writ-
ing no further trace of the men has
been discovered. Adriana was serv-
ing a two and a half to five years’
sentence and Wasser a three to six
years’ term. The men escaped by cut-
ting the wires of the stockade.
A Musical Treat.
The Bellefonte Choral Society will
give their annual concert in the Moose
Temple theatre, Thursday evening,
May 1st, at 8:15 o'clock. They will
be assisted by Miss Emma Keiss, a
well known and very pleasing sopra-
no, who has studied abroad and has
sung in grand opera. Mr. Finley, as
tenor soloist, and a string trio from
State College will also add pleasure
to the program, together with a splen-
did orchestra accompanying the chor-
The chorus consists of sixty voices,
which have been in training all winter
under the direction of Mrs. Russell
Blair, and it is hoped that the people
of the town will appreciate the efforts
of this organization by buying tickets
when solicited. The proceeds: will be
given to the hospital, as has always
been the custom.
Easter Offering of the School Children

ward public schools of Bellefonte

Centre County Sunday School Work-
A very interesting conference was |
conducted on Monday afternoon and
evening in the Community room at
the Y. M. C. A., Bellefonte, for the
promotion of the Sunday school work
in Centre county. There were not as
many districts represented as antici-
pated, partly due to the bad roads, but
all who attended were very much in-
spired by wonderful messages pre-
sented by the speakers.
President I. L. Foster presided at
the conference. Vocal selections were
rendered by Miss Shuey and Mrs.
Krader. Supper was served at 6
o'clock in the Y. M. C. A. to the dele-
gates. The evening session closed at
9:30. Much interest was shown in the
drive to establish family altars in
Centre county, similar to the cam-
paign which has just closed in Lycom-
ing county, and the speakers empha-
sized the great need of more inten-
sive religious teaching and training
in the home than is at present evi-
dent. John L. Holmes, of State Col-
lege, was present and emphasized the
need of higher ideals in the homes and
among young people.
At the close of the conference a
vote of thanks was passed to the Y.
M. C. A. for the use of the building

ence. Following is the program:

OTHER ACTIVITIES AT THE Y.
A spring and summer program has

dent of the conference for next year.

The second annual flower show and
sale, conducted at the Y. M.C. A,

in every way. The car load of flow-
