The dance in Noll’s hall, for the
benefit of the graduating class of our
High school, was a decided success.
Frank Deitrick and daughter, of Belle-
fonte, furnished violin and piano mu-
sic for dancing. The patrons were
from State College, Bellefonte, Pleas-
ant Gap and vicinity.
Rev. W. J. Wagner, of Boalsburg,
preached the baccalaureate sermon to
the graduating class of the Pleasant
Gap High school of 1924, on Sunday
evening. The graduation exercises
will be held this (Friday) evening in
the Lutheran church, at 8 o’clock. The
speaker for the occasion will be Rev.
Romig, of State College.
Our people have been worrying
since our regular garden digger, Mr.
Jared Houser, has moved to Belle-
fonte. But we have a most superb
digger who came to the resccue in the
person of Mr. Henry Young, who has
no superior. He holds his regular job
and does this important side line work
to accumulate a little extra cash.
Prof. Roscoe Treaster visited at his
home in McClure, Snyder county, over
the week-end. While home he attend-
ed the High school commencement
and was toastmaster at the Alumni
banquet. When Mr. Treaster com-
pletes his school work here next Mon-
day he will immediately go into the
state highway office in Bellefonte.
I was somewhat surprised at the
apparent liberality of our community
during the past week. Nearly all our
sidewalks and alleyways leading to
the numerous garages were very neat-
ly paved with crushed limestone, ad-
ding greatly to our general appear-
ance as an up-to-date village. How-
ever, I have just learned that the cred-
it of the unusual liberality emanated
through the management of the
Whiterock corporation, who donated
the material; all the recipient was re-
quested to do was to pay for the haul-
The result of our primary election
was a dismal failure. We have a total
of males registered up to 323 and 227
females. The number voting was for-
ty-one Republicans and thirty-one
Democrats. Only two women voted
out of this entire aggregation. There
was no interest manifested whatever,
during the entire day, which is to be
regretted sincerely. People don’t
seem to realize that the primary elec-
tion is just as important as the gen-
eral election. After the tickets are
made up these stay at homes will, as
usual, be the most vigorous kickers
and critics. This is an unusually bad
showing for our political organiza-
tions. More especially since we have
one of the largest districts in the
county, outside of boroughs.
It seems that President Coolidge is
on easy street, having more delegates
instructed for him than required. It
is a different proposition with the
Democratic hosts; they seem very
slow in coming to a decision as to
who is their preference. It seems
they can’t agree on any one applicant.
The result seems to be clouded in mys-
tery. Now, then, I am not a prophet
or the son of a prophet, but have
about concluded that Billy Bryan, the
magnetic gentleman from Florida,
may loom up as a possibility. Should
Bryan be given the privilege of the
floor of the convention for an hour or
two the mystery may be speedily
solved. Billy understands the game;
he has had three trials and is still
young and vigorous. He was nomi-
nated by the National convention of
his party at Chicago in 1896 because
of the enthusiasm created by his fa-
mous “Cross of Gold” speech, which
electrified the mighty assemblage and
fairly set it wild. He was the only
man who ever became the recognized
and acknowledged leader of his party
in a moment—Ileaping from compara-
tive obscurity to fame at a bound. 1
happened to be in that convention at
the time, on official business, and like
every one present was surprised at
his wonderful speech. Bryan began
his national career when, as a delgate
to the National convention, he wrote

the silver plank in its platform. He
was nominated for President but was
defeated, receiving 176 electoral votes
against 271 for William McKinley.
When the Spanish war broke out Bry-
an raised the Third regiment of Ne-
braska volunteer Infantry and became
its colonel. In 1900 he was again
nominated for President and was
again defeated, receiving 155 votes
against 292 for McKinley. Soon after
Bryan started his own magazine,
“The Commoner,” at Lincoln, Neb. In
1906 he made a tour of the world.
Two years later he was nominated the
third time for President, with Wil-
liam Taft as his opponent. Bryan re-
ceived 162 electoral votes against 321
for Taft. President Wilson chose
Bryan for Secretary of State in his
cabinet and Bryan served from the be-
ginning of the Wilson administration
until June 9, 1915, when he resigned
because of his opposition to the moves
of the administration and his abhor-
rence of war. During his term of of-
fice he negotiated thirty treaties with
governments representing three-
fourths of the world’s population. He
is noted as an author and a lecturer,
and regarded as a very intelligent in-
dividual. Bryan personally is a very
clever man. I interviewed him on two
occasions; often met him, like him as
a man, but politically, I am ferninst

Cats Without Tails on the Isle of Man.
The Manx cat, which is native to
the Isle of Man, a British island in the
Irish Sea, is noted because of its ab-
sence of a tail and a formation of
d | body that distinguishes it from cats
of other breeds.
The origin of the Manx cat is at-
tributed to the arrival on the Isle of
Man off ships belonging to the Span-
ish Armada that were wrecked there.
It is said that these cats were most
probably previously brought from Ja-
pan or other parts of eastern Asia.
In the true Manx cats the fore legs
are short, and the rump rises as ab-
ruptly as possible, making the hind
legs longer than the fore legs, so that
the cat seems to jump forward like a
rabbit, and is, therefore, sometimes
called a rabbit cat. The Manx cat
may be of any of the recognized col-
ors.—London Tit Bits.
