Mrs. Clayton Reish, of Allentown,
was here last week to attend the fun-
eral of the Mulfinger baby.
Mr. and Mrs. David Crum, of Sines-
ille, are visiting with Mrs. Crum’s
parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Kerstet-
Miss Speith, a nurse of Philadel-
phia, is visiting her friend, Miss Ber-
tha Rimmey. The pair are apparently
having the time of their lives.
Miss Jean Noll, our talented young
nurse, after spending her vacation
here, returned to Philadelphia on Sun-
day to resume her duties at her fa-
vorite hospital.
Mr. William Horner took in the re-
union at his former home at McEla-
vey’s Fort last week., Over 1500 peo-
ple were in attendance. Billy says it
was a great occasion.
Tommy Jodon has returned to the
cattle buying proposition again and is
doing a rushing business. He sold,
the past week, twenty-five cows and a
half dozen sucking calves. That is
going some, and Tommy is master of
the situation.
Mr. John Buller, of Ardmore, vis-
ited the family of William Hoover; he
came here last Wednesday and return-
ed home on Saturday. Mr. Buller was
very favorably impressed with the
beautiful scenery adjacent to the Gap.
He is prominently connected with the
Prudential Insurance company.
Earl Rimmey, wife and little son
motored to Altoona on Sunday, bring-
ing home Mr. Rimmey’s mother, Mrs.
David Rimmey, who has been spend-
ing a week in the Mountain city visit-
ing her daughter Anna. A much need-
ed rest is what the good lady requir-
ed, and she says the sojourn greatly
benefitted her physically.
Mrs. Swartz, of Snow Shoe, who has
been visiting her daughter, postmis-
tress Miss Mary Swartz, at the George
Showers family, returned home a few
days ago. Mrs. Swartz says she was
homesick to see her daughter, as this
is the first occasion that she has ever
been away from her for any length of
time, hence the visit to her proved a
great relief.
Our principal industry, Whiterock,
is again forging ahead; they recently
received some very substantial fur-
nace stone orders, and are now run-
ning that department on full time.
Lime orders are also coming in so that,
our works are now somewhat improv-
ed, and the workers are in consequence
more jubilant and happy. There was
a falling off of orders some time ago,
and occasionally men were obliged to
lay off for a day or two. It must be
said to the credit of the management,
that they did all in their power to
keep their employees working as near
full time as possible.
Pleasant Gap will be well supplied
with nurses in the near future. Over
a year ago Miss Bertha Rimmey grad-
uated as a nurse from one of the lead-
ing hospitals in Philadelphia, and to-
day she is regarded as a most efficient
nurse in this community. Her unusu-
al good qualifications are verified from
the fact that she has about all she can
do in this commendable avocation.
Next in order is Miss Jean Noll, who
has been in training for nearly two
years. She is progressing admirably
well. She likes her new field of labor
and has for a few years past been
looked upon and regarded as a natural
born nurse. When graduated she is
sure to make a success. Next on the
list is Miss Beatrice Noll, a most en-
ergetic young lady, who starts into
training in Philadelphia in the near
future. We congratulate ourselves
that ere long we will have an abun-
dance of first-class nurses. The im-
portance of good nursing, according
to intelligent, scientific principles, has
never been properly appreciated;
ly than the people of any other na-
tionality; they have a wit and humor
distinctively their own, but there are
none so quick to see and appreciate
fun of other nationalities. The inhab-
itants of other countries always speak
of us as Yankees; whether from Mas-
sachusetts or Georgia—he shows his
adaptability; the Yankee becomes cos-
mopolitan in a very short time. One
or two trips to Europe, on either busi-
ness or pleasure, enables him to fa-
miliarize himself with the customs of
foreign lands, and he sees something
funny at every turn. Often he per-
mits his sense of humor to get the
better of his courtesy; but a little
thing like that does not bother him:
very long. The British, as a rule, are
slow to recognize the point of an
American joke, but when they do,
after mature reflection they cannot
contain themselves. The genuine
American fun, wit, sense and non-
sense—things to make you laugh,
whether you want to or not, if you
will read a little further down you
will come to the joke. For genuine
fun the Yankee has few equals.
Mr. and Mrs. Edward Mulfinger
have the heartfelt sympathy of the
entire community, since they had to
face the painful ordeal of burying
their unusually bright boy, Mack Ed-
ward, a week ago, aged one year and
seventeen days. The saddest part of
this message is that the young couple
were married some five years ago, had
three children, and all have departed
this life, leaving the parents to mourn
their loss. In comparison with the
loss of a lovely, innocent child all oth-
er bereavements are trifling; such a
child fills so large a space in the do-
mestic haven—we think of him now
as all gentleness, all beauty, all pur-
ity. Yes, how lonely you feel {for
the idol of your heart is gone The
heart whose every beat measured an
eternity of love now lies beneath the
sod. How sad to contemplate; be ten-
der of his memory so you may meet
him with a soul unstained, in that
bright and beautiful haven of rest.
The parents have the consolation of
knowing that their dear boy is better
off than we are.
Happy infant, early blest,
Rest in peaceful slumber, rest.
Early rescued from his cares
Which increase in growing years.
Little Mack, fare-the-weil,
Till we shall meet above,
Where saints and angels dwell
And feel that God is love.

returned from the war, most of whom
were members of Company E, held a
| reunion there in 1866 and for half a
| century the gathering was known as
‘Have You Uric
Acid Trouble?
! Many Bellefonte Folks Are Learning
How to Avoid It.
Are you lame and achy; tortured
with backache, and rheumatic pains?
Feel nervous, depressed, and all play-
ed out? Then look to your kidneys!
When the kidneys weaken uric acid
accumulates, poisoning blood and
nerves, and many mysterious aches
and ills result. Help your kidneys
with a stimulant diuretic. Use Doan’s
Pills. * Your friends and neighbors
recommend Doan’s.
Mrs. HA W. Raymond, Reynolds
Ave., Bellefonte, says: “My kidneys
were weak and I had a dull aching
and soreness across my back. I could
hardly sweep. I tired easily and had
nervous headaches. My kidneys acted
too often and annoyed me. I used
Doan’s Pills from Runkle’s drug store
and was relieved of the backache. My
kidneys were in good order, too.”

simply ask for a kidney remedy—get

the Company E reunion. But some
eight years ago so few of the old sol-
diers were left that the picnic rights
were turned over to the trustees of
the Presbyterian church and it has
been held under their auspices ever
since. Various sports were included
in Saturday’s program and one hun-
dred gallons of ice cream were sold.
The management cleared $320.00.
Several patriarchs took a hand in
the threshing at the Mac Fry home
one day last week. They were Capt.
Fry, eighty years old, who fired the
engine; David Robb, of Liberty town-
ship, 86 years old, who fed the thresh-
ing machine, and W. E. McWilliams,
77 years old, who tallied the bushels
of wheat as they were carried away,
the total ages of the three men being
243 years. Mr. Robb, by the way, was
on a visit to his grand-daughter, Mrs.
W. R. Port, and notwithstanding his
advanced age is still hale and hearty.
He is probably the veteran hunter of
Centre county and can boast of killing
more game during his life than any
other man now living. In fact his
record shows that 80 bear and 120
deer have fallen before his unerring
aim, not counting almost untold quan-
tities of small game. Mr. Robb is one
of the charter members of Liberty
Grange and a past master.
Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Stover and
child, of Coburn, were visitors at the
William Meyer home on Saturday.

county, and Rev. and Mrs. J. F. Har-
kins and sons, of State College, are

Mrs. M. A. Woods, Mrs. Place and

companied by Mrs. James Bryson, of

ap” of alumni and former students of
The Pennsylvania State College be-
gins today at State College.
This will be the first time that a
gathering of this kind has been ar-
ranged at the college. For many years
alumni in various parts of the State
have held picnic outings at parks in
their districts, while June commence-
ment periods and the home-coming
day in the fall have marked alumni
reunions on the campus. Alumni offi-
cers have called the meeting for the
purpose of talking over alumni asso-
ciation affairs and projects of general
interest to the college.
The meetings start today, August
22 and the “round-up” will last until
Sunday. A general invitation has
been extended to all alumni who find
it convenient to get to the college for
the week-end.

What is Wall Street?
Does it build or destroy; advance or retard progress?
Wall Street is a name for the financial center of the United States.
Here are found the country’s greatest banks, insurance companies,
savings banks, trust companies, ete.
Wall Street is to the nation what a local bank is to a certain
It is governed by the same code of commercial honor.
It represents and commands an enormous reservoir of capital;
fed by many streams from the savings of the people.
It has been and is now the most potent agent in the development
of the country.
Because it concentrates. capital for large enterprises;
while its stock exchange is the country’s only great market for se-
All our great transportation systems, our producing, manufac-
turing and industrial companies are the results of its work.
Its business is to finance companies and to buy and sell their se-
curities; not to own or operate them.
Thus Wall Street creates but does not control. ‘
The great companies are owned by millions of small shareholders.
~The American Tel. & Tel. Company has 825,000 owners.
The Pennsylvania Railroad 180,000 owners.
The interests of Wall Street are bound up with those of the far-
mer, the worker, the manufacturer.
National prosperity is essential to its life. :
Abuse of Wall Street is the stock in trade of the cheap politician.
There are gamblers there as there are gamblers everywhere. ;
But the real Wall Street is constructive and is a vital part of the
