Mothers’ Assistance Fund, and How
it is Managed.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Mothers’ Assistance fund board of
managers for Centre county was held
in Bellefonte on Wednesday of last
week, six of the seven members being
present. Inasmuch as comparatively
few people in the county know much
about the fund or how it is man-
aged the board has seen fit to give
for publication the following state-
“The conservation of child life, the
State has realized, is of great import-
ance. Also, statistics show that it is
much more economical to maintain
children in their homes than it is to
support them in children’s institutions.
Children cared for in their own homes,
under the care of their own mothers,
have a better chance to become
healthy, normal children. The State
Legislature, with these facts before
them, established the Mothers’ Assist-
ance fund. In March, 1923, one mil-
lion, two hundred thousand dollars
were appropriated for this work. The
division of this appropriation was
made according to the class under
which the county is listed, the class
depending upon the number of inhab-
+ itants. Centre county being a Sixth
class county, her apportionment is
small, being only $2199.00 per year.
To this the county is required to ap-
propriate a like amount—$2199.00.
This gives the board of trustees for
their work per year $4398.00. The
Mothers’ Assistance law states that
the board of trustees may use 10 per
cent. of the fund, $489.80, for main-
tenance or expenses for each year.
The 10 per cent. when not used for
maintenance or expense, may revert
to the fund for the assistance of the
mothers and their children. During
the existence of the Centre county
board, a period of six years, their ac-
count for expense has not exceeded
$25.00 per year.
“The board of trustees receive no
remuneration for the administration
of this fund. Their duties include the
proper administration of the fund,
supervision and guardianship of the
families, especially as to health and
education of the children.
“The Centre county board of trus-
tees is made up as follows: Mrs.
Frank D. Gardner, State College,
president; Miss Mary H. Linn, Belle-
fonte, vice president; Mrs. John S.
Walker, Bellefonte, secretary and
treasurer; Mrs. W. F. Reynolds, Belle-
fonte; Mrs. Charles E. McGirk and
Mrs. L. W. Nuttall, Philipsburg, and
Mrs. G. S. Frank, Millheim.
“The board at present has under its
care thirteen mothers and sixty chil-
dren. The small amount of money
granted each family per year keeps
the home together. The board realiz-
es that the wonderful self-sacrifice of
the mothers and the assistance of the
children are establishing worth-while
homes, where boys and girls are grow-
ing into useful men and women under
the care of good mothers and the les-
son of industry.
“This fund is the best in the State
or county, and is more economically
administered than any other known
Big Blast at Union Furnace.
On Thursday of last week the Amer-
ican Lime & Stone company put off
one blast at its Union Furnace plant
which cost them $7,000, but the blast
shattered the whole face of the quar-
ry and loosened 140,000 tons of rock.
With a diamond drill eighteen six-inch
holes were drilled to a depth of 1463
feet, and thirty-two feet back from
the face of the quarry which has a
length of 370 feet. These holes were
loaded with 556 feet. These holes were
dynamite and the blast fired with a
battery using the cordeau fuse. The
cost of the explosive was $4,000, and
the cost of drilling the 2636 feet of

BEEZER.—Philip L. Beezer, one of
the best known business men of
Bellefonte, passed away at his home
on east Bishop street at eight o’clock
on Monday morning as the result of
paralysis. He had been a sufferer for
two years or longer and had been con-
fined to his bed the past ten months,
a good portion of the time almost
A son of Elias and Margaret Stein-
kerchner Beezer he was born at Axe
Mann on July 19th, 1861, hence was
not quite sixty-three years old. His
father was engaged in the butchering
business and as a boy Philip ran er-
rands and delivered meat from his
father’s m~rket, hence it was only
natural that when he grew to man-
hood he assisted his father. When
the latter died Philip took charge of
the business and for forty years own-
ed and operated one of the leading
meat markets of Bellefonte, thirty
years of that time being located in the
Benner building on High street where
the business continues to flourish.
While the greater part of his time
was naturally devoted to his business
he gave thought to his duty as a citi-
zen and served several terms as a
member of borough council discharg-
ing his obligation in a conscientious
and creditable manner. He was a
life-long member of St. John’s Catho-
lic church and a charter member of
the Bellefonte camp Knights of Col-
umbus, in the work of which he was
especially interested. He was also a
member of the Bellefonte Lodge of
Elks. Rather quiet and unostenta-
tious in manner few men were more
concise and scrupulous in their busi-
ness dealings than he, while his na-
ture was one of trust and faith in his
About thirty-seven years ago he
married Miss Ada Royer, who sur-
vives with three children, Mrs. Rose
Witeraft, Arthur and Miss Helen, all
at home. He also leaves one grand-
son, Philip Witeraft, six brothers and
two sisters, namely: Elias, Joseph
W., Fred, Christ and Henry Beezer,
all of Bellefonte; Augustus, of Punx-
sutawney; Mrs. Charles Kustaborder
and Mrs. John Garis, both of Belle-
Funeral mass was held in St. John’s
Catholic church at ten o'clock on Wed-
nesday morning by Rev. Father

was made in the Catholic cemetery.
TEMPLE.—Mrs. Viola Tate Temple
died last Friday evening at the home
of her daughter, Mrs. J. Fred Mont-
gomery, of Cambridge, Mass., follow-
ing a prolonged illness.
She was a daughter of Col. D. K.
and Theressa Keeley Tate and was
born at Coatesville about seventy
years ago. When a small girl her
parents came to Bellefonte and here
she grew to womanhood and married
Frederick Schade. The first few years
of their married life were spent in
Bellefonte but later they moved to
Johnstown. After a few years’ res-
idence there Mr. Schade died and later
she married LeRoy Temple, living in
Johnstown until the flood of 1889
when they went east and made their
home at Cambridge, Mass. Mr. Tem-
ple died in 1913 but surviving her are
the following children: Mrs. J. Fred
Montgomery, of Cambridge, Mass.;
Mrs. P. T. Andrew, of Los Angeles,
Cal.; Mrs. G. Houton, of Salem,
Mass.; Mrs. M. J. McDonnell and H.
A. Schade, of Cambridge, Mass. She
also leaves four brothers and one sis-
ter, H. A. Tate, of Roanoke, Va.;
Benton D., of Bellefonte; D. K., of
Newark, N. J.; Wilbur, of Roanoke,
and Mrs. George A. Beezer, of Belle-
Benton D. Tate went to Cambridge
for the funeral which was held on
Monday afternoon, burial being made
in that city. 2
FRANTZ.—Mrs. Mary C. Frantz,
widow of John R. Frantz, died last
Wednesday at the home of her son,
Wilson G. Frantz, four miles west of
Port Matilda, following an illness of
several years, although she had been
confined to bed only about two months.
She was the last survivor of the
family of five children of Mr. and
Mrs. Samuel Carabaugh, and was born
in Adams county on April 17th, 1843,
hence was past eighty-one years old.
When but eight years of age her par-
ents moved to Tyrone and that was
her home until her marriage in July,
1865, to Mr. Frantz, since which time
she had lived on the Frantz homestead
in Bald Eagle valley. Her husband
died thirteen years ago but surviving
her are one son and two daughters,
Wilson Frantz, with whom she made
her home; Mrs. H. M. Moore, of Osce-
ola Mills, and Mrs. Ella Hamer, of
Funeral services were held at two
o’clock on Saturday afternoon, burial
being made in the Black Oak ceme-
tery, north of Port Mallia,
ANDREWS.—William Clinton An-
drews, for thirty-five years a well
known business man of Philipsburg,
died at his home in that place on
Saturday evening as the result of
general debility. He was born in
Columbia county on March 24th, 1838,
hence was 86 years, 2 months and 14
days old. He served during the Civ-
il war in Company B, 210th regiment
Pennsylvania volunteers. Following
the war he engaged in business at
Montandon, Lock Haven and Lewis-
burg, successively, and in 1889 locat-
ed in Philipsburg. He conducted a
store there until the first of January
when he sold out owing to failing
He was a member of the Methodist
church and a trustee for many years;

hospital and a charter stockholder of

Clees, of Philipsburg, and Mrs. Cam-
den Mears, of Brooklyn. Burial was
made in the Philipsburg cemetery on
FISHER.—Miss Mary Catherine
Fisher passed away very suddenly at
her home at Centre Hall at 7:45
o’clock last Friday evening. She and
her niece, Miss Lola Ulrich, lived to-
gether and Miss Fisher had been in
apparently the best of health. On
Friday afternoon she: complained
about having a headache but the pain
was not sufficient to cause any premo-
nition of what was to follow. Short-
ly after 7:30 o’clock she collapsed and
before a physician could reach her side
she had breathed her last, heart fail-
ure being the cause of death.
She was a daughter of Jared B. and
Sarah Louisa Fisher and was born at
Penn Hall on October 21st, 1860,
hence was in her sixty-fourth year.
She was educated in the public schools
of Gregg township and at the Penn
Hall Academy. Following the death
of her parents she lived in the old
Fisher homestead until some five or
six years ago when she purchased the
comfortable home in Centre Hall
where she and her niece have since
lived. She was a life-long member of
the Reformed church and one of the
most active workers in the congrega-
Her immediate survivors are one
sister and a brother, Mrs. Ella S. Sny-
der, of Sunbury, and Frank M. Fish-
er, of Centre Hall. Funeral services
were held at ten o’clock on Tuesday
morning in the Salem Reformed
church, at Penn Hall. Rev. D. R.
Keener, of the Reformed church of
Centre Hall, and Rev. J. H. Keller, of
China Grove, N. C., had charge of the
services, after which burial was made
in the Salem cemetery.
Takes Own Life in Fit of Despondency
Weak in mind because of continued
ill health Philip Saul, for many years
a resident of Centre county, commit-
ted suicide late on Saturday evening
by hanging himself to the bedpost in
his room at the home of his daughter,
Mrs. William Fike, near Roopsburg,
using his leather belt as the means of
ending his life. His lifeless body was
found by two sons about 11:30 o’clock
Saturday night. He was a native of
Germany and was about sixty-eight
years old. He came to this country
when a lad and for a number of years
lived near Centre Hall. Later he
came to Bellefonte and worked for the
Standard Scale company, going to
Beaver Falls when the plant was mov-
ed there twenty or more years ago.
His wife, who before her marriage
was Miss Susan Samuels, died thir-
teen years ago, and since that time he
had made his home among his chil-
dren, who are as follows: Mrs. C.
V. Smith, Charles, Lottie and Robert,
all of Beaver Falls; Mrs. L. D. Kyler,
of Waddle; George, of State College;
Mrs. William Fike, of Roopsburg;
Mrs. Lester Corl, of State College;
Claude, in Kansas City, Mo., and Syl-
vester Washington, in the U. S. na-
vy. Funeral services were held in the
Shiloh church on Tuesday afternoon
by Rev. Wilson P. Ard, and burial
made in the Shiloh cemetery.
Date for State Ram Sale Announced.
Centre county sheep growers will
have an excellent opportunity to se-
cure a good, pure-bred ram to head
their flock at the State-wide consign-
ment sale of pure-bred rams which
will be held at the fair grounds at
New Castle, Lawrence county, on
The sale will be under the auspices
of the Lawrence, Mercer and Venan-
go county Sheep and Wool Grower's
Association. About forty head of
carefully selected pure-bred rams of
the Hampshire, Southdown, Shrop-
shire, Dorcet and C Type Merino
breeds will be consigned for sale by
leading breeders throughout the
State. This is the first State-wide
ram sale held in Pennsylvania and is
being staged by these three counties
association as a part of the sheep de-
velopment program to encourage the
use of better sires. Sheep growers in-
terested in attending or securing a

Hughes—Summer.—If the comlete-
ness of the occasion of the marriage
between Miss Ottilie Hughes and Mr.
Ralph Summer, on last Monday morn-
ing, is an evidence of what their fu-
ture is to be, then it may be safely
predicted that their cup of happiness
will fill to overflowing. The wedding
took place at the residence of Prof.
James R. Hughes, head master of the
Bellefonte Academy, and the consen-
sus of opinion is, that it was one of
the most attractive home weddings
ever witnessed by those present. Mr.
Hughes gave the bride away.
Miss Ottilie G. Hughes, the bride,
is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Luth-
er E. Hughes and the niece of Mr. and
‘Mrs. James R. Hughes. Mr. Ralph B.
Summer, the groom, of Waynesboro,
was graduated from The Pennsylva-
nia State College this June. The
young couple will live in the master’s
house on Spring street next year, as
Mr. Summer will be a member of the
Mrs. George F. Reiter furnished
the music for the nuptial event and
the wedding party marched to the
altar through a bridal path outlined by
huge bouquets of flowers, and stood
under an artistic flower arch where
the Rev. Wilson P. Ard received
them and performed the ceremony,
using the ring service. The bride
won her way to the hearts of all by
the peculiar grace and attractive-
ness that characterized her on this
occasion. She was becomingly gov n-
ed in the regulation white of artis:ic
simplicity, and carried a shower bou-
quet of white roses. The maid of
honor, Miss Ruth Stickler, and the
best man, Mr. Peter Shank, of Har-
risburg, a fraternity brother of the
groom, fulfilled their duties most
pleasantly. Miss Stickler, was dress-
ed in orchid and carried a bouquet of
The decorations in pink and white
color scheme were elaborate and ex-
quisite. The wedding breakfast was
dainty and delicious. The bride, ac-
cording to rule, cut the bride’s cake
while Mr. Hughes informally, after
toasting the party in a very gracious
manner, called upon several of the
guests and the groom, who respond-
ed in a manner fitting for this occa-
sion. An interesting feature of the
program was that of the service ren-
dered by Academy students who chose
to remain here for a few days. The
bride was the recipient of beautiful
Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Summer, par-
ents of the groom; Major Walter
Summer, wife and baby; Harris Sum-
mer and wife; Clarence Croft, wife
and son George; James Dayhoff and
wife, all from Waynesboro, together
with relatives and friends of the
‘bride, made a delightful party long to
be remembered. Mr. Mallory took a
picture of the party just before the
exciting “get away” of the newly-
weds, The happy couple left, show-
ered with every expression possible
for joy and success for their fu-
of Erie, and Miss Rose Derstine, of
Bellefonte, were married last Satur-
day morning at the Catholic church
by the rector, Rev. Father Downes.
The fact will be recalled that their
wedding was originally set for May
28th but the bridegroom sustained in-
juries in an accident at Erie which
sent him to the hospital for a few
days and he was unable to come to
Bellefonte until the latter part of last
week, hence the wedding was neces-
sarily delayed until Saturday morn-
ing. Following the ceremony the
young people went to Lock Haven to
visit Mr. Miller’s parents before going
to Erie where they will make their
Cruse—Hugg.—The home of Mr.
and Mrs. Toner A. Hugg, at Miles-
burg, was the scene of a pretty wed-
ding, at noon yesterday, when their
daughter, Miss Elizabeth Hugg be-
came the bride of Allen Cruse, son of
Mrs. Rebecca Cruse, of Bellefonte,
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
M. DePui Maynard, of the Episcopal
church, the ring service being used.
A small number of intimate friends
were present and following the cere-
mony a wedding breakfast was serv-

Eberhart, of Bellefonte, and Miss

to know that since Mi.s Eckert has

Coleville is on the wane. No new cas-

The most unfortunate outcome of the
epidemic was the two deaths that oc-
curred, but at that the percentage of
fatalities was unusually low consider-
ing the number of cases.
The regular Kiwanis weekly noon
meeting was held at the Brockerhoff
‘house, Tuesday, June 10th. Chaplain
J. K. Kranke, of the new western pen-
itentiary, gave a very instructive and
interesting talk on the reformation
of prisoners, contending that the pres-
ent honor system is the best to fit
them for society, upon their comple-
tion of a sentence.
Dr. Melvin J. Locke spoke briefly
in the interest of the Bellefonte base-
ball team, which he said is not get-
ting proper local support. There is a
sufficient number of citizens in this
community who are lovers of the na-
tional game but a great many of
them do not realize that it is their
ball club and should have financial
help as well as attendance at the
games. In other words, get back of
the club and boost it. After all, it is
a poor town that cannot boast of a
real ball club. President Ard ap-
pointed a committee of Kiwanians,
Rossman, Deitrick and Noll, to give
any assistance possible to correct this

——1If numbers count the annual
picnic given the kiddies at Hecla park
yesterday by the Bellefonte Lodge of
Elks was a success. Approximately
1130 children had registered when the
list closed at noon on Tuesday, but
this did not exclude any others from
going who reported yesterday morn-
ing. As has been the custom in the
past, a parade of the children was
held on Wednesday evening, led by the
Odd Fellows band. While it was ut-
terly impossible to count the number
that took part there were enough of
them to cause consternation and won-
derment as how they were all going
to be cared for yesterday. But, as
usual, the Elks were equal to the oc-
casion. As early as 6:30 o’clock yes-
terday morning the kiddies began to
show up at the Elks home, although
the start for the park was not made
until nine o’clock. Several of the big
trucks of the Emerick Motor Bus com-
pany and many private cars were util-
ized in conveying the children to the
park, there being very few stay-at-
homes because of the threatening con-
dition of the weather early yesterday.

Apple Scab Infection Found in Many
Infection of apple scab has been
found in thirty-two counties of Penn-
sylvania, according to a report just
received at the county agent’s office
from Prof. E. L. Nixon, plant disease
specialist at The Pennsylvania State
College. Recent inspections of orch-
ards indicate that scab is prevalent in
all parts of the State.
The first infection was found in
Cumberland county on May 15th and
a tremendous amount of damage to
the quantity and quality of the fruit
crop is predicted unless control meas-
ures are successful.
Nixon warns growers to plan on
making another spray if they note ev-
idence of scab in their orchards and if
the weather continues wet. He advis-
es using only lime sulphur, summer
strength, for this application. If wet
weather continues, the plant disease
specialist looks for a secondary infec-
tion of scab which is likely to be more
serious and dangerous than the first.
