If you have never seen the
screen version of “Way Down East”
don’t let the opportunity pass to see
it tonight or tomorrow night, at the
opera house, when it will be shown at
popular prices. While it is one of the
biggest and most heart-appealing pic-
tures ever filmed every night’s pro-
gram at the Scenic next week will be
worth seeing. The Scenic is the only
place in Bellefonte where entertain-
ment is furnished every evening in
the week and if you are not a regular
you are likely to miss some good pic-
In all the notices so far pub-
lished of the various contributions to
the Bellefonte hospital fund no men-
tion was made of the amount contrib-
uted by the inmates of the Rockview
penitentiary, which was in the neigh-
borhood of ninety dollars. This was
entirely distinct from the four or five
hundred dollars pledged by officials,
guards, ete., at the institution, and the
fact that the entire sum was made up
from the meagre savings of the pris-
_oners is evidence that even though
they are under restraint they have not
lost the philanthropic spirit for those
ill and in distress.
Writing to Paul Goheen, the
very clever editor of the “Tyrone Di-
vision Special,” an old friend has
‘made a noise like “a yoice from the
grave.” It is Cal Pownall talking:
“Yes, I am alive and happy at Glen
Hope, Pa., and well remember the
days when I was braking on the Snow
Shoe, way back in 1866, and used to
gather honeysuckles and catch rattle-
snakes on ‘the switch-back’ to take in-
to Bellefonte. Everybody grabbed the
honeysuckles, but - the only place I
could find for the rattlesnakes was the
window in Andy Cruse’s cigar store
in the Bush house.
NOT YET OVER THE TOP
Kiwanis Still Working to Reach the
$100,000 Goal. State College
and Snow Shoe Not Reported.
It was expected that at the regular
| weekly luncheon of Kiwanis, on Tues-
day, final reports as to the outcoine
of the hospital drive would be pre-
Inasmuch as neither State College
nor Snow Shoe, the two divisions in
which the canvas had not been com-
pleted were not yet ready to report it
is still an uncertainty as to whether
the $100,000 goal has been reached.
It is rumored that State College has
already filed pledges amounting to
slightly more than $11,000, which is
less than half of its quota. Ferguson
township, in the College division, ex-
pects to reach its quota of $700 and
Patton and Halfmoon townships, also
in the College division, have raised
$400 on their quota.
The committee composed of John
Blanchard, W. J. Emerick, Charles R.
Beatty, Charles McC. Scott and WwW.
Frederick Reynolds Jr., that was ap-
pointed two weeks ago to tabulate and
classify the thousands of subscription
cards and suggest plans for the reor-
ganization of the hospital board has
found the former task so laborious as
to detail that that it has not been able
to complete its work and won't get
it done for report tonight, as was
hoped. In consequence the meeting of
the hospital board that had been
called for tonight has been postponed
until next Friday night, when it is
hoped the report can be made so com-
plete that a definite basis on which to
start work will be at hand.
Besides State College and Snow Shoe
only partial reports have been made
up to this time on the divisions under
lieutenants Harry Rossman and John
Payne. Without finals on all of them
it would be difficult to take up the de-
tail of plans intelligently.
May 1st was the date that the first
payments on subscriptions were due.
If you have not made yours, go to
your local banker and deposit the
amount in the name of H. E. Fenlon,
treasurer of the hospital campaign
fund, or send your check to Mr. Fen-
The regular meeting of Kiwanis was
interesting as usual.
Mr. Stutzman, the superintendent
of construction at the new western
penitentiary, was the speaker. The
attendance prize was won by A. Miles
Barr and while he didn’t take home
the bacon he was presented with a
fine, large ham.
The music was furnished by the
Ace high quartet, an accidental organ-
ization that had everything but voices.

Escaped Prisoner Caught and Re-
turned to Pen.
Charles Henry Wasser, one of the
two prisoners who escaped from" the
Rockview penitentiary on Saturday
evening, April 9th, was caught last
Thursday .morning near Greenville,
Mercer county. Through Wasser’s
correspondence while in prison the
penitentiary officials knew of a girl
near Greenville with whom the con-
viet was on very friendly terms and
immediately after his escape Green-
ville police were notified to watch for
him. And the girl proved to be the
magnet which drew him into the po-
lice dragnet. He reached her home on
Wednesday night and was arrested
Thursday morning. He was brought
to Bellefonte on Saturday and on
Monday morning Judge Quigley sen-
tenced him to serve his old term and
an additional term of three to six

This Should be a Good Year for Fruit.
Last year at this time many fruit
trees, especially the early varieties,
were in full bloom but, unfortunately,
the buds had been blighted by a heavy
fall of snow on April 13th and the re-
sult was a small crop of early fruit,
home grown strawberries, etc.
though the later varieties of apples,
cherries, ete, provided a fair crop.
This year all kinds of fruit trees are
unusually late in blossoming, occa-
sioned by the continued cold weather
during March and the early part of
April, and now that we have entered
the month of May the probabilities
are that we have passed the danger
period for frosts or freezing weather,
and likewise the possibility of danger
to the fruit trees when they do come
into blossom. None of the old-time
almanacs predict any further frosts
for this spring so that there is every
reason to hope that the fruit crop this
year will be a big one.
CONSTABLE GILLETTE DEAD.
Passed Away at Lock Haven Hospital
on Tuesday Morning.
Deputy constable Hugh H. Gillette,
of Snow Shoe township, died at the
Lock Haven hospital on Tuesday
morning as the result of a fractured
skull sustained by being hit on the
head with a pick by Frank Auman,
on the evening of April 3rd, while in
the performance of his duties as a
truant officer of that township, and
the result will be a murder trial at the
next term of Centre county court.
The fact will be recalled that on
the evening in question Gillette went
to the home of Stiney Shall for the
purpose of serving a warrant for the
arrest of that gentleman for failure
to send his children to school. When
he arrived there he found Mr. Shall,
another man whose name has not been
made public, and Frank Auman. Ac-
companied by the unknown man Mr.
Shall made his escape into the nearby
woods before the warrant could be
served, and the truant officer blamed
Auman for assisting in his escape. A
quarrel ensued which finally terminat-
ed in blows being exchanged when
Auman grabbed a pick and hit the
constable on the head. The latter
dropped to the ground unconscious
and Auman took to the woods.
The injured constable was given
first aid treatment then taken to the
Lock Haven hospital where it was
found that he had sustained a badly
fractured skull and possible brain in-
jury. In fact his condition was such
that his death was expected any hour.
In the meantime Auman eluded the
local officers of Snow Shoe township
but was captured at Cherry Run the
following day by sheriff E. R. Taylor,
and brought to the Centre county jail.
For several weeks Gillette's condi-
tion continued very grave but last
week he was reported so much im-
proved that there was some hope of
his recovery. Early this week, how-
ever, he grew suddenly worse and his
death followed on Tuesday morning.
This will greatly complicate the case
against Auman who will now have to
stand trial for causing the officer’s
Constable Gillette was about sixty
years old and moved to Snow Shoe
from Kylertown fourteen years ago.
He was a carpenter by occupation and
a member of the Lutheran church.
Surviving him are his wife and the
following children: Delbert and Or-
vis Gillettee, of Snow Shoe; Mrs.
Howard Rook and Mrs. Harold Fry-
mire, of Williamsport, and Mrs. Har-
ry Lohr, of Belle Plaine, Iowa. He
also leaves one brother and a sister,
Carson Gillette, of Sea Breeze, Fla.,
and Mrs. Mary Stringfellow, of Ky-
lertown. Funeral services were held
yesterday afternoomsand burial made
at Snow Shoe.
Marble Shooting Tournament to be
Held by Y. M. C. A.
Down in Washington, D. C., the
sage and gray haired law makers are
now dividing their time between hold-
ing investigations and shooting mar-
bles, according to advices from the
national capitol. In fact shooting
marbles has become a nation-wide
sport this spring and tournaments are
being held in almost every city and
town in the country. And now Belle-
fonte is to have a tryout of its nimble
thumbed shooters. The Y. M. C. A.
is perfecting plans for a tournament
to be held in the near future and has
decided to invite teams from the var-
ious grades in the public schools to
compete. The winner of each grade
will play off in the finals.
National Marble association rules
will govern the contest. The public
will be invited to make contributions
of marbles or cash, according to the
individual inclination. About a" buck-
etful of marbles will be required on
the opening day, which will be scram-
bled among the contestants, but every
boy or girl who enters the contest
must provide his or her own shooter.
Rules for the contest and any other
information desired can be obtained
at the Y. M. C. A.

the illness of Mr. Fitzpatrick, expect to be

—Three very agreeable callers last Fri-
day were E. C. and Ferdinand Beezer, of
Philipsburg, and John Beezer, of Punxsu-
tawney. The gentlemen were here for the
funeral of the late Robert Rosenhoover.
We hadn't seen John for years and sight
of him recalled the early days when he and
Ed. and Andrew were boys running a meat
shop at Milesburg. They are all sons of
the late John Beezer, who in the early
days had the leading meat market in Belle-
fonte and three of the five boys in the
family have fulfilled the proverb “like
father, like son,” for John and Andrew are
both butchers in Punxsutawney and Har-
vey has a shop at Rossiter.
