“My China Doll” Was a Pleasing
It is not often, these days, that we
get a musical show that has either
continuity or music. “My China Doll,”
as produced at the Moose Temple
theatre Wednesday night, had both.
It had a theme to hang its lyrics to
and principals who could interpret
“My China Doll,” in a less preten-
tious way, is somewhat after Fred
Stone’s “Jack-o-Lantern” in concep-
tion and was staged wonderfully well
for a show doing “the sticks.”
Outstanding in the caste was Bar-
bara Bronell, a piquant little person,
who did so much in action and dancing
that we certainly had no right to ex-
pect much in her voice, though it was
perfect for her speaking parts. Wil-
liam F. Murphy and Tom Crowley
supplied the comedy and both were
clever; the former registering in the
best musical number of the show in
his trio with “the Rose” and “the
Daffodil.” Roy Peck, as “Sing Song”
gave a lot of character action to the
part. Betty Montgomery evidently is
carried merely for her good voice, but
she combines with it the ability to
lend gracefulness to the action as
Brown and Toner have been giving
Bellefonte more really good shows
than we have seen here in one season
for years. With “the Bat,” “the Cat
and the Canary,” “Meet the Wife,”
“Dante” and “My China Doll” already
seen there will have to come some
‘very exceptional offerings if these are
to be surpassed.
Her Conscience Pricked Her.
A report is current that during the
week a certain merchant in Belle-
fonte received an anonymous letter
enclosing ten cents and with it a note
in a woman’s handwriting in which
“A number of years ago I was in
there and picked up a piece of black
ribbon one inch wide, and it measur-
not more than twelve inches in
length, but I didn’t pay for it. Every
time I pray that piece of ribbon
comes up before me. So here’s ten
cents. I know it wasn’t worth more
than 25 cents a yard. There’s no need
for my name. God knows me now,
and I want to enjoy Thanksgiving.”
Meyers—Stere.—Fred E. Meyers
and Miss Mary Stere, both of Belle-
fonte, were married at the parsonage
of the Baptist church in Hollidays-
burg, at noon last Saturday, by the
pastor, Rev. J. S. Bromley. They will
make their home in Bellefonte follow-
ing a brief wedding trip.
Death of Mrs. Harding.
Marion, Ohio, Nov. 25.—Florence
Kling Harding, widow of Warren G.
. Harding, twentysninth Chief Execu-
, tive of the United States, died here
early last Friday. ;
The end came at 8:55 a. m. at the
White Oaks sanitorium of Dr. Carl
W. Sawyer, where she had been fight-
ing for life for the last few weeks.
Except for a short interval of res-
idence in Washington, Mrs. Harding
has lived at the White Oaks Farm
..since the death of President Harding
in August, 1923. She went there pri-
mariiy to be under the care of the late
Brigadier General Charles E. Sawyer,
who had been personal physician to
her husband while he was Chief Ex-
ecutive, and who had been her physi-
cian for twenty years.
She became ill shortly after the
death of Dr. Sawyer early this fall,
which it was believed, brought a re-
lapse in her condition. Burial was
ede in the Marion cemetery on Mon-
Gems of Fabulous Value
One of the most wonderful, privately
owned collection of gems in the world,
Is the property of Mr. Abdul Cafoor,
an Indian gem collector. The collec-
tion embraces two immense sapphires,
one priced at $80,000, a bag of 8,000
pearls, an aquamarine as large as an
apple, a $50,000 cat’s-eye set in dia-
monds, a string of pearls which took
30 years to complete, and sapphires
the size of plums! This is not an in-
ventory of the treasures in Aladdin's
cave, but merely an accurate descrip-
tion of a few of the jewels belonging to
this noted collector. The queen of Ru-
mania and the king and queen of Nor-
way are among the few who have seen
the collection, which is guarded night
Long Time in Space
A number of vicious mules had just
arrived at the camp and a new recruit
made the common mistake of ap-

Eating From Cans
Due to the tremendous demand for
.00ds packed so that they could be eas-
fly shipped, the World war with its
huge orders for corned willie and
many other goods was the greatest im-
petus the canning Industry has had
since its introduction In America in
« In 193 the value of all canned food

the most popular of canned fruits and
salmon leads among the sea foods.-—
