Last Saturday morning Mrs. Maude
Decker Markle, of Altoona, started
for this place in a Studebaker car and

Markle’s car had to be towed in for
repairs while Mr. Leitzel was able to
continue his journey. A wholesale
smashup occurred near the same place
on Sunday afternoon. A string of
eight cars were running westward the
one in the lead being driven by a wom-
an and containing another woman and
a man. Just below the club house the
woman suddenly stopped her car in
the middle of the road without giving
any warning to those following and in
less than a minute all nine cars were
jammed together. W. R. Port’s car
was badly twisted but able to run

Mrs. Joe Schmoyer’s daughter Hel-
en had an operation performed in the
Williamsport hospital recently.
Though still confined to her bed she
is progressing nicely and prospects
for her speedy recovery are reported
as being exceedingly encouraging.
Foster Breon and Earl Barner took a
run down to Williamsport to see Miss
Helen, and on their return reported
her as being very comfortable. It is
to be hoped she will be able to return
home at an early day and meet her
many anxious waiting friends here.
In the morning of the second day
the normal child shows a disposition.
to take charge of the affairs of the
family. The happiness of both the
parents and of the child depends up-
on the diligence with which this dis-
position is discouraged, and that
means discipline. It involves some
sort of punishment. Solomon said,
withhold not correction the child.
“Thou shalt beat him with the rod,
and shall deliver his soul from hell.”
But that was a long while ago, and
many manners have changed since
then; particularly, the relation be-
tween mothers and children has
changed. It is far less formal and
distant than it used to be, and much
more familiar and friendly. It may
have been well enough in Solomon’s
time but it is apparently different
Harriet Showers, the nine year old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George
Showers, returned from a six week’s
visit to Indiana county, and ' the
youngster proved that she was a game
tourist. Some relatives from Indiana
motored to the Showers home a few
weeks before July 4th and, on return-
ing home, prevailed upon Harriet to
go with them. The girl’s mother con-
sented on condition that they would
return her in case she would become
homesick, and in any event she was to
be returned not later than July 4th.
The visit appealed to the youngster,
and she remained away until last Sun-
day when her friends brought her
home and a genuine reunion resulted. | F
Harriet says she would have contin-
ued her visit until September, the
time of the opening of the public
school, had it not been that she feared
her two little sisters and her favorite
little poodle, “Topsy,” would become
homesick on account of her long ab-
. The utterance of thought and feel-
ing in a pure, clear, pleasant tone of
voice, is a most agreeable and praise-
worthy accomplishment, especially
when accompanied by easy and grace-
ful manners. Writers of eminence
and distinction have often utterly
failed when on the lecture platform,
to impress their hearers, simply be-
cause they were defective in vocal ex-
pression. The immortal Shakespeare
could not properly personate his own
Sear, Macbeth nor his Hamlet. The
passions he so perfectly portrayed
with his pen, his voice failed to ex-
press in even a slight degree. Yet
he was a professional actor as well as
a manager and playwright. It may
seem strange, yet salaries are paid
persons who devote their entire time
to misinstruct public school pupils.
The voice, in all such instruction, is
used too often simply as a medium of
communication between teacher and
pupils without the slightest regard to
the adaptation of the intonation to the
sentiment expressed. The same mo-
notonous tones are resorted to in ex-
pressing joy, grief, hope, fear, love,
hate,—no variety, no adaptation, no
modulation. Is it not strange, there-
fore, that boys and girls, and young
men and young women, too, do not
express their own or others feelings

Why Suffer So?
Get Back Your Health as Other Belle-
fonte Folks Have Done.
Too many people suffer lame, ach-
ing backs, distressing kidney disorders
and rheumatic aches and pains. Often
this is due to faulty kidney action and
there’s danger of hardened arteries,
dropsy, gravel or Bright's disease.
Don’t let weak kidneys wear you out. !
Use Doan’s Pills before it is too late! |
Doan’s are a stimulant diuretic to the !
kidneys. Doan’s have helped thous-
ands. They should help you. Here is
one of many Bellefonte cases:
Mrs. Boyd Vonada, E. Bishop St.,
says: “My kidneys were weak and I
could hardly rest at night. When I
was on my feet, my back gave out and
ached so I often had to stop and rest.
I frequently had dizzy, nervous head-
aches and my kidneys acted too often.
I used Doan’s Pills purchased at the
Mott Drug Co. and they rid me of the
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don’t
simply ask for a kidney remedy—get |
Doan’s Pills—the same that Mrs. Vo-
nada had. Foster-Milburn Co., Mfrs.,
