home from Potter county, and carried
as the spoils of their hunt two bear, :

ty a regular army of men are ready
to invade the mountainous districts
for their annual deer hunt. This will
+ be the only real-to-goodness vacation
taken by hundreds of men who lie

| become very much alive with the ap-
. proach of the deer hunting season.
i . Centre county has upwards of one
' hundred hunting clubs, each one of
; which has its permanent camp, most
of them being in the Seven mountains,
. where about all the good places are
! pre-empted from year to year. The
hunters go to camp in trucks and mo-

i of “grub” to stock a larder of ample
‘ proportions. Today and tomorrow

opening day.
lots of bucks in the woods for this
| year’s sport. It is a very common
| thing for travelers over the Seven
mountains to have deer run out into
| the road ahead of their machines and
farmers living along the Seven moun-
tains think it nothing unusual to see
a herd of deer pasturing in their fields.
While the majority of the deer are
naturally does and fawns about the
usual percentage of bucks have also
been seen.
More deer have been seen on the
Allegheny mountains this year than
usual and good shooting will proba-
, by be found in that section. A few
deer will also be found in Little Su-
gar valley, on Nitiany and Muncy
mountains, while the Barrens always
| affords ‘good hunting to those who are
t acquainted with the territory.
Of course the “Watchman” is anx-
ious to have reports of all deer killed
jas early as possible, and while the
i hunters will be beyond reach by tele-
| phone, all persons hearing news from
the various camps will confer a favor
ion this paper by telephoning the
same to us. So far as the venison is
| concerned a good shank or two will be
about all we can use.
It might also be mentioned that the
season for squirrel, pheasant and wild
turkeys. will close tomorrow and there-
after it will be unlawful to kill any of
that kind of game. Deer, bear and
rabbits will be in season until Decem-
ber 15th while raccoon season will be
open until January 31st.
Annual Meeting of Centre County
! Farm Bureau.
The annual meeting of the Centre
county Farm Bureau will be held in
auditorium, Belle-
fonte, on Saturday, December 6th, at
10 o’clock a. m. sharp.
At that time officers will be elected
for the coming year. A representa-
tive from the agricultural extension
office, at State College, will discuss
i the results of the work during the
year and explain the program as car-
i ried out by the county agent. The re-
port of the county agent has been
completed and will be submitted at
the meetng. .
There has been a misunderstanding
with reference to the name of the
- Farm Bureau as representing the ex-
. tension department and the Farm Bu-
reau Federation in different parts of
: the State. As every farmer probably
knows the extension department took
a neutral stand with reference to the:
Farm Bureau Federation and in order
to avoid being misrepresented chang-
ed to the agricultural extension as-
sociation. Since that action there are '
only twelve counties in the State that
have not changed the name of their
The question of changing the name
of the Farm Bureau to the agricul-
tural ‘extension association will be
taken up at that time and acted up-
on, It is necessary to make this
change .in order to be uniform with
| the other county extension organiza-
tions. |
A Junch will be served by the home
economics department of the High
school for a nominal fee of 65 cents.
After lunch there will be short talks |
by E. L. Nixon, of State College, and !
a representative of the business in- |
terests of Bellefonte.

‘Another Fire at State College.
Between twelve-thirty and
| State College, and almost completely
: gutted the structure before the flames
‘could be overcome. This is the build-
ing that was on fire on Wednesday
night when the one adjoining was
practically destroyed and it is just
possible that the fire had been smoul-
dering in the walls of the building for
forty-eight hours before it finally
broke out.
The building housed the postoffice
and as soon as the fire was discovered
college students formed a line and all
; the mail matter and, stamps and oth-
| er valuable equipment in the office
were moved across the street into the
new federal building. Though the in-
terior of that building is not fully
completed it is so far along that it
can be used in an emergency and it
was opened to the public at seven
o'clock on Saturday evening.
The A. & P. store was also located
in the Foster building and had just
gotten cleaned out, fixed up and open-
ed for business on Friday following
Wednesday night’s fire, when the sec-
ond fire came along and despoiled al-
most the entire stock.
Incipient Fire Nipped in Time.
On Monday morning Mrs. Robert S.
Walker, of east Linn street, sent her
two little boys to their play room on
the third floor because she considered
it a little too chilly outside. Bobby in
some way got possession of some
matches and under the impression
that the room was too cold for Rich-
ard gathered together a small pile of
paper and set it on fire. He then
pulled a small mattress in the room
on top of the blaze and a few minutes
later the boys went down stairs to
luncheon. :
At one o'clock Miss Elizabeth
Walker, coming down the street, dis-
covered smoke pouring from the third
story of the Robert Walker home.
She called the attention of her broth-
er Ivan and Russell Blair to the smoke
and they promptly ran across the
street to the house, gave the alarm
and hurried upstairs. The mattress
was all on fire but they succeeded in
smothering the flames. The fire, how-
ever, had burned a hole in the floor
and the firemen, when they arrived,
‘were compelled to tear up several
boards and use a hand extinguisher to
overcome the blaze.
Philipsburg Candy Factory Destroyed
by Fire.
The candy factory of the Haworth
Candy Co., at Philipsburg, was com-
pletely destroyed by fire about six
o'clock on Monday evening, entailing
a loss estimated at upwards of one
started on the fourth floor where 2
. large quantity of candy boxes were
stored, and spread rapidly. The plant
was working . on a large number - of
heavy holiday orders and as a conse-
quence had a big stock of manufac-
tured product on hand as well as a
great quantity of raw material. The
company was organized in September,
1923, and though only a little over a
year old, employed fifty people.
Escaped Convict Charged with
Fred Lutz, one of the prisoners who
escaped from the Rockview peniten-
tiary on August 10th, was recaptured
near his home in Clearfield county
last week and is now in the Centre
county jail awaiting sentence, has
several other charges entered against
him for alleged robberies committed
during the three months he was at
liberty. Several stores burglarized in
Clearfield county are believed to have
. been part of his work while robberies
of freight cars are also blamed on
him, : ‘
Several grips of merchandise which
are said to have been taken from the
Sommerville store, at Winburne, and
turned over to Mrs. Homer Illian,
were recovered on Monday when Mrs.
Illian was picked up at her home at
Spring Mills, Centre county. She turn-
ed over the property and was held in
her own recognizance to appear as a
witness against Lutz.
“4 Kiwanian Goose Got Loose.
A large, fat goose was the attend-
ance prize awarded at the weekly Ki-
wanian luncheon at the Bush house on
Tuesday noon and it fell to the lot of
meat dealer John Eckles to get it.
Before the presentation was made the
goose got loose in the dining room
and created some sport for the Ki-
wanians before it was captured. No
damage resulted from the goose’s es-
capade. ‘
Roy I. Webber, superintendent of
farms and buildings at State College,
was the luncheon speaker and gave an
interesting talk on the plans for the
improvement of the grounds and
buildings at that institution.
The next meeting of Kiwanis will
be held in the evening at the Brocker-
hoff house and will be in charge of the
educational committee, who are plan-
‘ning to hold a district school.

Large Attendance.
An interesting conference of the
young people of the Sunday schools
of Centre county was held in the
Lutheran church of Bellefonte, Satur-

An Evening with Tennyson and
A large and appreciative audience
assembled to hear an artistic rendi-
tion of Richard Strauss’s “melodrama
of Enoch Arden” as presented by the
Woman's club of Bellefonte.
By the union of the two sister arts
of music and poetry, this work pre-
sents a true picture of human feeling.
A powerful impression is made of the
beauty of unselfishness through Ten-
nyson’s noble lines, reinforced. by
Sirauss’s beautiful dramatic music
and the contemplation of the rugged
virtue of Enoch Arden is as whole-
some and refreshing as a brisk walk
in the teeth of an autumn gale or a
draught from our sparkling spring.
The Woman’s club wishes to thank
Mrs. Orvis Harvey and Miss Rebecca
Pugh Lyon for an evening of refined
and elevating enjoyment. -
