——>Saturday night’s hard rain and
Tuesday night’s downpour will prove
of inestimable value to the gardens
and corn and potatoes, but they came
too late to save the small berry crop,
as raspberries dried up on the bushes,
blackberries are about the size of a
pea and the huckleberry crop was also
badly damaged by the dry weather.
The ground is now pretty well soaked
and farmers will be able to do their
fall ploughing.

growing much longer and somewhat
chilly there is no better place to pass
the time than at the Scenic. Of
course regular patrons need not be
told this fact as they know that the
programs include the best motion pic-
tures put out by the leading compa-
nies, Strangers in Bellefonte cannot
find a better place of entertainment
than the Scenic. Get the movie habit
and be a regular, and by so doing you
won't miss any of the good ones.
Judge Quigley Shows | Little Mercy for
Escaped Prisoners.
A special session of court was held
i on Monday morning to dispose of five
| cases in which offenders plead guilty
to indictments against them and were
sentenced by Judge Quigley. Four of
the offenders were prisoners who es-
| caped from the Rockview penitentiary
. less than two weeks ago and were re-
. captured within three days.
The first man called up was Wil-
liam Wells who while working in the
coal mine of Isaac Heaton & Son, at
Gorton Heights, stole two power me-
ters valued at $150. He was sentenc-
ed to serve from two to four years in
the western penitentiary.
John Kelley, of Philadelphia, was
the first of the escaped prisoners call-
ed up for sentence. He was sentenced
in April, 1922, to from five to seven
years and although he is but 34 years
old that was his fourth conviction and
sentence, having previously served
two terms in Sing Sing, New York.
In fact he admitted to having com-
mitted his first crime when but nine
years old. The sentence imposed up-
on him was three and a half to seven
years, to be served after the expira-
tion of his present sentence, which
will give him twelve more years be-
hind the bars.
John Kelly, of Westmoreland coun-
ty, serving a sentence of fifteen years
and three months to twenty years for
second degree murder was given from
ten to twenty years. He is 26 years
old and has served nine years of his
first term, hence if he is kept in the
maximum of both sentences will have
thirty-one years yet to serve.
Frank Pace, of Allegheny county,
who was serving a three to four and a
half year’s sentence, dating from May
1st, 1923, was given from two to four
years additional.
George Bradley, of Crawford coun-
ty, serving a two to four years sen-
tence, was the only man shown any
mercy by the court. Bradley had only
eleven days to serve until being dis-
charged but made his disappearance
from the nursery on the afternoon of
August 11th. He was captured near
Laurelton, Union county, last Friday
evening. In presenting his case dis-
trict attorney Arthur C. Dale told the
court that there was some question as
to the man being sound mentally and
that fact ought to be taken into con-
sideration in disposing of his case.
Judge Quigley asked Bradley why he
went away and he said it was because
he was afraid. That the other pris-
oners were always talking about him
behind his back and he overheard one
say “use a razor on him.” Anyway
he was so scared he just walked away
and kept on walking. Judge Quigley
not only suspended sentence but sug-
gested that he be examined by the
prison physician and if found mental-
ly deficient, he should be paroled at
once and allowed to return home.
Ku Klux Klan Stage Public Initiation
on Fair Grounds.
The Ku Klux Klan staged’ a public
initiation on the old fair grounds on
Monday evening and while no public
anouncement had been made of the
fact the grapevine telegraph or radio-
graph was evidently working satis-
factorily as a large crowd of specta-
tors, probably five or six hundred,
were present to witness the demon-
stration. The upper portion of the
grounds were wired and electrically il-
luminated and members of the Klan
not only directed the parking of au-
tomobiles but policed the grounds to
see that there was no disorder and
nothing stolen from machines.
It was close to ten o’clock when the
explosion of two bombs announced the
opening of the ceremonies and the re-
verberation was still sounding in the
neighboring hills when a towering
cross twenty feet in height burst into
a glow of illumination with myriads
of electric lights. Stepping in front
of the cross C. R. Butler, a state offi-
cer of Altoona, led in singing one
stanza of “Onward Christian Sol-
diers,” after which Mr. Butler made a
lengthy address to the assembled
Klan, estimated at about four hundred
in number, who stood at attention in
a semi-circle west of the flaming cross.
At the completion of his address he
walked to the class of novitiates, thir-
ty-six in number and administered the
Klan oath, the degree work being per-
formed by a team from Lock Haven.
Members of the order were present
from Coalport, Altoona, Huntingdon,
Lewistown, Lock Haven and Williams-
port, and at the conclusion of the in-
itiatory ceremony the Kluxers sang
“Nearer My God to Thee,” the lights
were snapped off the cross and the
gathering quietly dispersed.
This was the first public gathering
of the Klan in this section but we are
pretty reliably informed that a much
larger and more spectacular meeting
is to be held in this section in the near
future in which from three to four
thousand members of the Klan are ex-
pected to participate.
Former Centre Countians Robbed.
Robbers last Friday night broke in-
to the general store of William D.
Walker & Bro., at Bigler, Clearfield
county, blew open the safe and got
away with $600 in checks and cash,
mostly the latter. In addition they
carried away insurance policies, notes,
leases and other papers of value only
to the owners. About a month ago
Chester Walker, the junior member of
the firm, was held up by a masked
man as he was leaving the store but
instead of delivering up his cash made
for the man and he took to his heels
and got away. The Walker Brothers
were formerly residents of Marsh
Creek, Centre county.
I Farmer’s Picnic.
The Centre county Co-operative as-
, sociation will hold their annual picnic
and festival on Saturday, August
30th, at Holmes’ grove, Pine Hall.
The committee of arrangements is
planning for one of the largest basket
picnics of the season. The crowd will
be entertained by a baseball game,
horseshoe pitching contests and a
good social time. The services of a
band have been secured and every-
thing possible is being done to insure
a good time for all.
Attention, Centre County Veterans!
The 81st annual reunion of the Cen-
tre County Veteran club will be held
at Grange park, during the Grange en-
campment and fair, on Wednesday,
September 3rd, at 10 o’elock a. m., in

ers will address the meeting and the
services of a good band is assured.
All veterans of all wars are cordially
invited to join in this gathering. G.
A. R. men will be admitted free to the

Wm. H. FRY, Secretary
Two Garages Burglarized.
Last Friday night some unknown
person or persons broke into the John
W. Neese garage, at Axe Mann, and
made away with four inner tubes,
some sockets and tools to a total value
of approximately thirty-five dollars.
The same night the Shreck Bros. ga-
rage, at Lemont, was entered and four
tires stolen. A woman who lives near
the garage heard a noise and getting
out of bed looked out of the window
and saw two men carry out two tires
each, throw them into an automobile,
climb in and drive away. She failed
to recognize either one of them, how-
Child Scalded to Death.
A distressingly sad accident hap-
pened at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Franklin C. Grove, near Jack-
sonville, last Thursday morning,
which resulted in the death of
their infant son, Kermit Emanuel
Grove. Mrs. Grove took a bucket of
boiling water from the stove and set
it on the floor, stepping out of the
kitchen to get some cold water. She
was gone but a minute but when she
returned she was horrified to discover
that her infant son had fallen into the
bucket. Other members of the family
were summoned and a physician se-
cured as soon as possible. He found
the baby badly burned over two-thrids
of its body, and though everything
possible was done it passed away at
three o’clock on Friday afternoon.
The child was aged two years, four
months and twenty-three days, and in
addition to the grief-stricken parents
is survived by seven brothers and sis-
ters, as follows: Edgar, Merrill, Har-
ry, Sarah, Russell, Walter and Louise.
Rev. Wilson P. Ard had charge of the
funeral services which were held at
the Grove home on Sunday afternoon,
burial being made in the Zion ceme-
Petersburg Wins Two Games and Eats
Two Chicken Dinners.
A contribution to the “Watchman”
from Petersburg says: “The Peters-
burg baseball team established a new
record last Saturday by capturing two
games, attending two annual picnics,
eating two chicken dinners and trav-
eling sixty miles.
“At the Baileyville picnic they met
the fast Houtzdale sluggers at 1:45
p. m., before a large crowd. Ralph
Rupert delivered the pill and he re-
ceived air-tight support. At the end
of the game the score board showed
8 to 3 in favor of Petersburg. Going
by motor bus to the big Mooresville
picnic the Petersburg batsmen at five
ler’s fast team from Pine Grove Mills
and other points. Manager Port trot-
ted out Chic Hennen to do the mound
work against Meyer, the idol of Fer-
guson township. A thunderous noise
arose as Chappie’s men went to bat
but when they took the count and fail-
ed to score the noise became a dense
quietude. At the end of the game the
score stood 3-0 in favor of Petersburg.
The great crowd dispersed and the
last seen of Chappie he was being
supported from the grounds by two of
his stalwarts.”
Business Men’s Picnic Largely At-
tended but Financial Failure.
Notwithstanding the fact that a
large crowd attended the Business
Men’s picnic at Hecla park, last
Thursday, it proved a failure, finan-
cially, for the association as the re-
ceipts were not sufficient to cover the
expenses. The committee in charge
evidently outdid itself in furnishing
attractions that did not prove the
drawing cards anticipated. This was
especially the case with the boxing
and wrestling events. The receipts
from them were considerably below
what the management had figured on.
This is probably accounted for in the
fact that the largest part of the crowd
at the picnic were women and chil-
dren, and they as a rule don’t patron-
ize such sports.
Then the giving away of a Ford car
and radio set were rather costly side
issues. The car was won by Mrs. Wil-
liam Ridge, of Orviston, and the ra-
dio set by James Bailey, of Belle-
fonte. Cam Heverly, son of county
caught the pig in the greased pig con-
test, and so elated was he with his
good luck that he promptly sold the
porker to a farmer for five dollars,
even though it weighed about 125
pounds and was worth about twice
that sum.
p. m. went up against Chappie Kep-
treasurer J. O. Heverly, of Bellefonte,’
Borough Dads Hold Brief Meeting |
4 Monday Night.
at the regular meeting of borough |
council on Monday evening. Walter
C. Cohen presented a petition signed
by various property owners asking
that Spring street between High and
Howard be permanently improved
either by concrete or brick paving.
i Charles Shaeffer, who is building a
new house on east Curtin street, asked
for an extension of the sewer from
the Barlett property east a distance of
250 feet so as to afford him sewer
connections. The matter was referred
to the Street committee and borough
The Street committee reported var-
ious repairs and $10 collected for a
sewer permit.
The Water committee reported the
installation of three new taps and the
collection of $6.00. The committee re-
ported that the price of a drinking
fountain for the spring will be $70,
less 15 per cent. The committee was
authorized to procure one and have it
The Finance committee reported
that the secretary had completed the
borough duplicate. The total valua-
tion this year is $1,948,727. The bor-
ough tax is $19,487.27; interest, $9,-
753.93, and street, $19,487.27, a total
of $48,728.47. The committee asked
for the renewal of notes for $800 and
$1,000, and for the execution of a new
note for $1,000 to pay current bills,
both of which were authorized.
The Fire and Police committee pre-
sented the burgess’ check for $66.00
for fines and licenses collected. The
committee also reported that the bur-
gess recommended that a white line
be painted in the centre of Bishop
street for the control of traffic. The
committee was instructed to have the
work done.
The secretary reported that no defi-
nite action had as yet been taken in
connection with the joint application
of the county commissioners and
Street committee for State-aid in the
paving of Spring street between Bish-
op and High. President Walker re-
quested both the Street and Finance
committees, with the borough solicit-
or, to meet the commissioners this
week, if possible, and endeavor to per-
suade them to join in the application.
Mr. Cunningham reported the Linn
street sewer clogged and the matter
was referred to the borough manager.
The Sanitary committee reported
the creek cleaned from the falls to the
bridge, but some residents up stream
will persist in throwing brush, boards,
etc., into the creek.
Bills to the amount of $1388.24 were
approved for payment after which
council adjourned.
Bellefonte Can’t be Beaten for League
Pennant. -
By winning two games the past
week Bellefonte’s champion baseball
team is now in a position where they
can’t be defeated in the race for the
pennant. The best that Millheim can
possibly do would be to tie the locals,
and to do that she will have to win
every game yet to play and Bellefonte
lose all of her six games still on the
schedule. This is a situation that is
not likely to occur, however.
At the Business Men’s picnic at
Hecla park, last Thursday, State de-
feated Millheim 14 to 9 and Bellefonte
downed Centre Hall 9 to 1. On Satur-
day Bellefonte won from State 4 to 3
and Millheim was victorious over Cen-
tre Hall 10 to 4. Lose twirled another
nice game for Bellefonte on Saturday,
holding State to four hits, all of which
were bunched in the fourth inning.
George Gilliland bounced one over left
field fence for a home run, the first of
its kind this season. Sweng Smith’s
knock in the first was a harder hit
ball, but hit too close to the fence to
bounce over and he got only a double.
Malone’s hitting has greatly improv-
ed. In the last five games he has bat-
ted a .400 clip. Sweng Smith leads
the batting list for the season, with an
average of .352. He also leads in get-
ting runs, with 82. Gingerich is the
leading extra base clouter, with 20
hits for 31 bases, while Martin is a
close second with 24 hits for 35 bases.
Following is the standing of the clubs:

Notice—Smallpox in Pennsylvania.
At present there is a greater men-
ace of smallpox infection in Pennsyl-
vania than has threatened the State
in many years. Since the first of the
year more than twenty people have
died of smallpox in this State, which
shows the virulent form in which the
disease is now prevailing; most of
these deaths have occurred in the
cities, such as Pittsburgh and Potts-
The fact that the disease is prevail-
ing during the summer months in-
creases the menace to the health of
every community in the State. There-
fore, it is-urged that all. unvaccinated
persons, and those who have not been
vaccinated since childhood, take such
precautions at once that might save
them from smallpox later in the year.
It has been proven that more than
ninety per cent. of those who have
died of smallpox in Pennsylvania
either had never been vaccinated or
else had not been vaccinated since
childhood. :
