and 5th to complete the work.
——Monday was the date set for
the taking of further testimony in
the condemnation proceedings brought
by the Bellefonte school board against
the old Bellefonte Gas and Steam
Heating company, but owing to the
fact that Hon. Ellis L. Orvis was
called out of town that day the hear-
ing was continued until a later date.
The advance agent for the Sam
Spencer shows was in Bellefonte this
week making arrangements for a
week’s stand here beginning next
Monday. The shows will be held on
the Witmer lot on east Bishop street,
adjoining Hughes field. It is also re-
ported that the Harry Copping shows
will be in Bellefonte in the near fu-
ture for a week’s stand.
A two days’ session of the
northern conference of the Central
Pennsylvania Synod of the United
Lutheran churches was held in Lock
Haven last week, Rev. J. F. English,
of Pine Grove Mills, being elected
president of the conference and Rev.
F. H. Daubenspeck, of Aaronsburg,
treasurer. Among the speakers were
Dr. C. T. Aikens, of Selinsgrove, and
Dr. W. M. Rearick, of Mifflinburg.
——The Johnstown Ledger, estab-
lished three years ago as a competi-
tive morning paper to Warren Worth
Bailey’s Johnstown Democrat, was
absorbed by the latter paper on Tues-
day of last week. During the past
year or more Edward L. Gates, a for-
mer Bellefonte newspaper man, had
been telegraph editor on the Ledger

ilar capacity for the Democrat.
——A very pitiable case in Belle-
fonte is that of eleven year old Mary
Bowersox, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Harry Bowersox, who has been housed
up the past two months with a most
severe attack of rheumatism. At first
her legs were so badly affected that
she could hardly walk and now it is
her hands that trouble her most. She
suffers considerable pain and can
hardly sleep at night, but her parents
hope that when the weather becomes
settled she will improve more rapidly.
——The arrival in Bellefonte early
in the week of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Shaughnessy Jr., of Philadelphia, was
the first intimation most of his friends
had that he had become a benedict,
though he is now almost in the class
of “an old married man,” as his wed-
ding dates back to the first of last
December. His bride prior to her
marriage was Miss Marion Wilt, of
Mill Hall, but who for several years
past has been teaching school in Phil-
adelphia, and it was this faét that led
the young couple to keep their mar-
riage a secret until quite recently.
——On Monday evening Jerry Ow-
ens motored in Pine street and just
as he turned the crest of the hill to
make the turn down Spring street he
discovered that he had lost his starter
crank. Stopping the car he jumped
out and ran back to hunt the crank.
While thus engaged the car started
down grade, and with nobody to steer
it, ran onto the James I. McClure
property, knocking down the fence,
breaking off a small horse chestnut
tree and wrecking a flower bed. Mr.
Owens secured the Chemical Lime
company bus to pull his car back onto

Grand View poultry farm at Centre
Hall reached this office on Tuesday
morning, only a few hours after we
stood at the Pennsylvania railroad
depot and inspected a shipment of
thousands of young chicks having
been shipped from that place on Mon-
day morning, and we were constrain-
ed to look back to the days of our
childhood when chicken farms were
an unknown quantity and the only
kind of incubators in existence the
old clucking hen. Of course the little
brown hen still has certain duties to
perform which inventive genius has
not yet been able to take from her,
but when it comes to poultry farms
and their mission in furnishing eggs
and young chicks the Kerlin farm is
one of a number of good ones in Cen-

The Lewis and Connelly Stories In-
Writing generally of her apprecia-
tion of the “Watchman,” Mrs. J. B.
Smith, of Grand Island, Nebraska,
states that she was specially inter-
ested in the stories of “Lewis the Rob-
ber,” which the “Watchman” recently
published through the courtesy of
their author, Mr. Frederic Godcharles.
Mrs. Smith recalls having heard her
grandfather, who lived between Pleas-
ant Gap and Lauvertown, now called
Peru, tell of Lewis, and sometimes
Connelly, having come down out of
Nittany mountain to his home on fre-
quent occasions to have paper money
exchanged for gold. Her grandfather
did not know until some time after
their last trip to his home who his
strange visitors had been.
After he learned that they were the
notorious highwaymen of that period
he recalled that their actions had been
more or less suspicious, since they
always came and went through Mec-
Bride’s Gap and along the foot of the
mountain to his place and not over the
more traveled highway.
— Mrs. Nevin E. Cole wishes to
thank her many friends for the kind-
ness shown during her late bereave-
ment, and for the service rendered in
giving cars for the funeral.
Centre County Bank Case Again Held
Up in the Supreme Court.
Much to the disappointment of all
concerned the Supreme Court of the
United States failed to hand down an
opinion or decree on Monday morning
that would loosen a few of the tan-
gles in the Centre County bank case.
As has been reported in the papers
previously, aside from a decision on
the main questions involved, there
was injected into the case an applica-
tion to have George H. Shugert, as
his administrator, substituted for his
father, the late John M. Shugert, for
the purpose of carrying on the pro-
Also three creditors, W. J. Emer-
ick, Howard Holzworth and Roy Wil-
kinson, petitioned the court for per-
mission to intervene in the proceed-
The expectation was that the Court
would act on these later petitions
without argument, both sides to the
controversy having expressed the de-
sire that it should. Evidently the
country’s highest tribunal looks upon
the matter in such a way that oppor-
tunity for argument should be afford-
ed. For, on Tuesday, without an opin-
ion filed, the order was issued that
George H. Shugert should be permit-
ted to substitute on the record as ad-
ministrator of his father, but that the
original petition could not be amended
so as to permit creditors to intervene.
While the attorneys on both sides
are more or less in doubt as to why
there should be another argument it
seems to be the consensus of opinion
that the opportunity of new argument
is offered for the purpose of discus-
sing the administrator's right to be
admitted and what rights invest in
him if he is admitted.
The date for this argument has
been set for next November 10th.
After it has been made the Court will
probably clear up the collateral ques-
tions involved and later render its
opinion on the main questions carried
to it and not yet touched upon, except
The following letter from the Pro-
thonotary of the Supreme Court may
give you a clearer idea of the status
of the proceeding than we have been
able to do above:
Washington, D. C., May 13, 1924.
I beg to inform you that the Court
announced an order on yesterday en-
tering the suggestion of death, and
granting the motion to substitute in
the cases of Meek, Dale and Breeze
v. Centre County Banking Corpora- |
tion, Nos. 590, 591 and 592, of the Oc-
tober Term, 1923, advancing the cases
for argument on Monday, November
10th next after the cases heretofore
assigned for that day, on the issues
including that of the right of the Ad-
ministrator to continue this proceed-
ing in bankruptcy.

Hung Up on the Mileshurg Bridge.
About midnight, Tuesday, a Chev-
rolet coupe owned by B. L. Van Dine,
of State College, was badly wrecked
when it hit the girder on the north end
of the iron bridge spanning Bald Ea-
gle creek at Milesburg. The machine
hit the superstructure of the bridge
with such force as to bend the brace
irons considerable, totally demolish
the body of the car, and wreck the en-
gine and it recoiled in such a way as
to throw it crosswise on the driveway
of the bridge.
The driver ascribes the accident to
his effort to avoid hitting a woman pe-
destrian just as he was entering the
bridge. None of the four occupants
of the car were hurt, though it was a
miracle that they were not all im-
mersed in the swollen waters of the
The identity of the woman who was
walking on the highway at midnight
has not been revealed.
Get Your Seats for the Minstrels.
Secure your seats next Monday at
Mott’s drug store for the Academy
Minstrels. Their entertainment this
year promises a rare treat. The danc-
ing carnival in the second part will
surely be worth the price of admis-
sion. Little Huberta Bernhardt, of
Pittsburgh, will appear in three num-
bers. She is a wonder and will win
the admiration of every one in the au-
dience. Dances by young ladies and
students will illustrate many types of
attractive and amusing features.
Don’t forget the dates, Thursday and
Friday, May 22nd and 23rd. The
minstrel dance will take place in the
armory Friday night, May 23rd, 11
to 3 o'clock. The Challis Collegians
will furnish the music.
C. F. Tate Helps a Bit.
Possibly because he has raised a
family of ball players and possibly
because he is just a good fellow who
has always tried to do his part “Cor-
ny” Tate, the plumber, has built, at
his own expense, a batter’s net and
placed it on Hughes field for the use
of all ball players in Bellefonte.
A batter’s net is a moveable back-
stop for practice batting and now that
the amateur Babe Ruths have some-
thing that will save them the trouble
of running all over the big field for
passed balls there will probably be a
lot more local players working into
the King of Swat class.

——The Last Resort tea room open-
ed for patronage during the past week
in the old Garman dwelling house on
High street. It is now more attract-
ive than ever. With this permanent
location, its unique decorations and
furnishings and the excellent food al-
ways served by Miss Valentine should
make it the most popular tea room of
this section of the country, both for
visitors to the town and for the
ONE DEATH FROM TYPHOID
Seven New Cases Under Treatment
in the Bellefonte Hospital.
The first death to occur as the re-
sult of the typhoid fever epidemic at
Coleville happened at one o’clock on
Wednesday morning when Miss Helen
Wolf, the twenty year old daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher Wolf, and who
was the first to be stricken down with
the disease, passed away at the Belle-
fonte hospital, where another sister
is also a patient. Two others are
still in a very serious condition, Miss
Pearl Leathers and Clarence Young.
Since the publication of the list of
those ill in last week’s paper seven
additional cases have developed and
were taken to the hospital for treat-
ment. They are Clarence Young,
Thurman Davis, Charles Gettig,
Cooper Davis, Mrs. Mary Evoch, Mrs.
Anna Derstine and Nelson Grubb.
Katherine Rote was taken to the hos-
pital on Friday as a suspect but as
the disease did not develop she was
discharged on Sunday.
The additional cases developed dur-
ing the week must not be taken as ev-
idence that the source of the disease
has not been overcome. They are
simply the result of the infection be-
fore the magnitude of the epidemic
developed, and it is possible there
| may be more cases before the disease
Helen Wolf, the first victim, was a
daughter of Fletcher and Eva Ross-
‘man Wolf and was born at Coleville
‘on April 29th, 1904, hence was 20
| years and 15 days old. All her life
' was spent at the place of her birth.
In addition to her parents she is sur-
| vived by two brothers and one sister,
Creighton and Leslie Wolf and Mrs.
Anna Derstine. She also leaves one
half-brother, Edward Green. Rev.
Reed O. Steely will have charge of
the funeral services which will be held
tomorrow morning at ten o’clock,
burial to be made in the Bellefonte
i Union cemetery.
Two Men Suffer Bad Injuries Last
William Keen, an employee of the
i Pennsylvania Match company, lost
two fingers on his right hand, last
| Friday, as the result of getting
_caught in one of the machines at the
‘plant. He had just returned to work
from a visit to the company’s office
for the purpose of paying his monthly
contribution to the big hospital drive
when he inadvertently got his hand
caught in the machine and before it
could be stopped the third and fourth
fingers were so badly mutilated that
they had to be amputated above the
upper joint. In fact less than half an
hour from the time he paid his hos-
pital contribution he was taken to
that institution to have his fingers
SAMUEL BURROWS VICTIM OF GUN
Samuel Burrows, who lives in the
tenant house on the Brockerhoff farm,
along the Jacksonville road, was also
admitted to the hospital on Friday as
the result of having his left hand
completely torn away as the effects of
a shot gun. Mr. Burrows was using
the gun to shoot blackbirds which are
proving an almost intolerable nui-
sance about the barn on the farm. He
was on the point of putting the gun
away when he saw a bird settle at one
end of the barn. Quietly crawling to
the corner of the building he attempt-
ed to get a shot but the bird was up
and away before he could fire. Re-
turning he was in the act of hanging
the gun up on a nail under the over-
shoot, out of the way of the chil-
dren, when the gun was discharged.
Mr. Burrows had his left hand over
the muzzle of the gun and the load of
shot literally tore his hand to shreds
and it was necessary to amputate it
above the wrist. Mr. Burrows is
married and has quite a family of
small children, so that his unfortu-
nate injury is a most deplorable cir-
Secretary of Labor Davis Visits
Bellefonte by Airplane.
Secretary of Labor James J. Davis,
of President Coolidge’s cabinet, spent
a half hour in Bellefonte on Saturday
while enroute from Chicago to Phila-
delphia, traveling from Cleveland,
Ohio, to the Quaker city by airplane.
Secretary Davis was the chief speak-
er at a meeting in Chicago on Friday
evening and was booked for a speech
in Philadelphia on Saturday evening.
It was impossible to get through by
train so he traveled by railroad to
Cleveland and made the balance of
the trip by airplane. :
The ship carrying the secretary
was piloted by Paul F. Collins, one of
the regular airmail pilots. It left
Cleveland at 9:20 o’clock in the morn-
ing and reached the Bellefonte avia-
tion field at 11:30. A stop of one-half
hour was made in Bellefonte during
which time Mr. Davis was brought
down town and shown the big trout
in Spring creek, got a sandwich and an
apple and was munching the latter
when his ship took flight for Philadel-
Of course this wasn’t the secretary’s
first flight through the air, as on a
former occasion he was a passenger
from San Francisco to Chicago, and
while in Bellefonte on Saturday he
told a “Watchman” reporter that he
preferred traveling in the air to on
the ground. He further stated that
of all the States he had flown across
there are none to equal old Pennsyl-
vania for beautiful, diversified scen-
ery. Mr. Davis lived for many years
in Sharon, Mercer county, but his
home is now in Pittsburgh.

Important Hospital Meeting Tonight.
While it will not be a public con-
ference all those specially interested
in the future of the hospital will be
welcomed at the meeting of the Board
that is scheduled for the arbitration
room in the court house tonight at 8
The Board was in session three
hours last Friday night planning, so
far as it seemed advisable, for the ap-
plication for a new charter, change of
name and drafting a skeleton form of
reorganization for submission to the
Kiwanis will be represented at this
