Bellefonte Freight Handlers Make.
‘Record in February.

yards, made d record in efficiency dur-
ing the month of February that will
probably stand. for some time as a
record on the Pennsylvania System
for stations of this size.
The report certainly must be a mat-
ter of exceeding gratification to agent
W. T. Kelly and yard-master T. J.
Kelleher and their respective helpers.
Their purpose was to make February
a spotless month as regards over,
short and damaged freight, etc., and

of it, in fact. ~
They handled a total of 3058 out-
bound waybills; 1715 solid loads out-
bound; had shipment damag-
ed, a slight damage for which no
claim was made; had no short reports;
‘no over reports; no free astray re-
' ports; no C. T. 619; no discrepancies
of any character. This, too, was one
of the biggest months, from a revenue
standpoint, in the history of the sta-'
Of the 1715 solid loads outbound, a
majority were stone. It is interesting
‘to note that among this number there
were 30 carloads of matches—368 tons
of matches! La
E. O. Struble, foreman of the ware-
housemen, deserves credit for his
part in this record. As well, Agent
W. T. Kelly and his force come in for
high praise for such a sterling record.
This freight station serves thirty-
four private sidings, in addition to
public team tracts and connecting
lines. Bellefonte is-the junction for

and J. C. Snyder, clerks; Harry A.
Smith, head clerk; C. F. Barner, L. E.
Harter, E. M. Peters, E. O. Struble
and G W. Thomas, warehousemen.
_T. J. Kelleher, yard master, who has
his office in the same building, also
broke all previous records. ;
In a yard with a capacity for 65
cars, they handled 2421 loaded and
1515 empty, or a total of 3936. Of
the 2421 loaded, 1715 originated at
Bellefonte alone. This record is top-
ped by but ‘one month in the history of
he yard, and that was in April, 1924,
when they handled a total of 4108
cars, or only 169 more than for the
month of February, 1925.
_. Bellefonters who have only a super-
ficial knowledge of what industries in
this community are producing will be
impressed with the statement that
during the month 1715 full carloads
| of freight originated and were ship-
ped from here. An average of Tl

New Prizes Offered Dellefonte Acad-
emy Students.
The Bellefonte Academy has not
only been successful in its scholastic
and athletic work this year, but it has
won interested friends who have man-
ifested their interest in the noble pur-
pose the historic Academy is trying to
realize by coming to the front and of-
fering prizes to incite the students to
their best endeavor in various phases
of school effort. Dr. W. J. Copeland,
| of Elmira, N. Y., whose son graduated
| last Christmas, has offered three priz-
| es called the “Irving Copeland Prizes
of 1924,” in honor of his son Irving.
Twenty dollars will be awarded annu-
rally to the most useful athlete of the
i school year. Ten dollars will be offer-
'ed annually to each of the two stu-
dents who do the best work in Ameri-
can history.
F. P. Blair & Son will offer an an-
nual prize of $10.00 to the Senior who
will attain the highest average for the
year’s work in English.
" The Potter-Hoy Hardware Co. will
offer a $10.00 prize annually to the
student who attains the highest av-
erage in the Sophomore year.
Montgomery & Co. will present
$10.00 annually to the Senior who at-
tans the highest grade in modern
It is needless to state that head-
master Jaics R. Hughes and his fel-
low teachers are much gratified be-
cause of these new incentives in the
Academy work and feel very grateful
to the donors. These complete a good
list of prizes in science, mathematics,
ancient languages, oratory, English
and history.
Carl Deitrick Appointed Assessor for
the South Ward.
The regularly elected assessor,
Joseph Apt, for the South ward of
Bellefonte, having moved into his new
bungalow, just over the line in Spring
township, the County Commissioners,
on Tuesday, appointed Carl Deitrick
to fill the vacancy created by the re-
There was quite a scramble for the
appointment. Charles Saxion, J. W.
Yearick, Charles Anderson and H. J.
Walkey were all aspirants for the
place. Mr. Deitrick, besides being
amply qualified for the job, is a ster-
ling young Democrat and has shown
the will to go out and work for the
party that has thus rewarded him.
Interesting 2 Meeting of Bellefonte
Chapter D. A. R.
A large and especially interesting
‘ meeting of the Bellefonte Chapter D.
{ A. R. was most hospitably entertained
“at the home of the Misses Virginia
‘and Grace McCurdy, on east Linn
street, on Thursday evening, March
5th. '
Following the usual order of music,
business new and old, the Chapter Grand Captain General Boyd A. Mus: |
added to its benefactions a subscrip-
tion of $25 to Near East relief; $25 to
“its room in the Centre County hos-
| pital, and voted an extra voluntary
| gift of twenty-five cents per member
- to the publication of the “Immigrants
Manual,” a book printed in twelve
different languages for the enlighten-
ment of arrivals at Ellis Island and
other immigrant stations in “Ways
Mrs. John I. Olewine read an ex-
haustive, though by no means ex-
hausting, (as often proves to be the
| case) paper on the D. A. R. work at
| Ellis Island. The detention rooms at
' that place on the Atlantic coast and
"at Angel Island on the Pacific coast
would cage many a more restless spir-
it, both among the men and women,
were it not for the occupations in rug
making, sewing, manual study, (now
often begun on shipboard en route
from foreign parts), furnished by the
D. A. R. This organization has had
850,000 copies of the manual printed
and has spent between $450,000 and
$475,000 for the work.
Following Mrs. Olewine’s paper
the entertainment committee present-
"ed another “star” in the person of
Mrs. Winters, wife of Capt. Theodore
Winters, of the U. S. navy, who told
of life in the Philippines. Referring
to a matter already presented to the
Chapter Mrs. Winters, who is a pros-
pective member of the D. A. R., re-
moved any doubt as to the United
States government providing for its
soldiers and sailors. She said that the
government sees to it that the men
always have food, clothing and rooms,
but the seamen of the merchant ma-
rine are sometimes in need of such
things. The latter can be summarily
dismissed anywhere in the world, no
matter how far from home, but a sea-
man in the government’s employ, even
though he be in disgrace, is always re-
turned to his home country and never
left stranded in a foreign port. Mrs.
Winters explained, however, that both
the soldiers and sailors do need places
for recreation and entertainment in
Manilla, and she added that upon re-
turning there she will be glad to as-
sist in this branch of the D. A.R.
work, so it is highly probable that the
local Chapter will have a representa-
tive in a good work in almost the oth-
er side of the world.
Police Arrest Packer, Who Later Has
Police Arrested.
Cleveland Packer, of Holt’s Hollow,
was arrested by state police on éSat-
urday night for having in his posses-
sion and transporting intoxicating
liquor. He was in his car when stop-
ped by the police and when. they un-
dertook to search the car resisted with
the result that a scrap ensued in
which Packer received a discolored
eye. The only wet goods the police
found was a half pint in Mr. Packer’s
hip pocket. At a hearing before
Squire S. Kline Woodring, on Mon-
day, Packer was held in one thousand
dollars bail for trial at court.
On Tuesday Packer swore. out a
warrant before justice of the peace
J. M. Keichline for the arrest of state
policeman W. J. Lyster on the charge
of assault, the officer being placed
under arrest the same day. He will
be given a hearing before ’Squire
Keichline today and some interesting
developments are expected.
According to reports Packer was on
his way home late Saturday evening
and had what he claims was cow
feed in a bag in the rear of his car.
He was stopped by the state police
who, it is claimed, declared the “cow
feed” was mash. - In any event Packer
did not yield willingly to being
searched and the police claim he
kicked at them from his car. It was
at this time that policeman Lyster
poked him one on the eye. He avers
he hit him with his fist, and if he did
he has some “poke” in his arm, as
Packer had a badly battered eye. The
police, it is claimed, then went to his
home and ransacked it from top to
bottom on the hunt of stills or moon-
shine liquor, but all they found was
the half-pint bottle found in Packer’s
hip pocket, and there was only a
“nip” of moonshine in it.
Whether the state police were
armed with a search warrant or not,
has not been divuiged, but will likely
be brought out at the hearing today;
also an officer's right to commit an
assault in making a search for liquor.
John Haldeman, Moonshine Maker,
Again in Jail.
John Haldeman, of Horntown, was
arrested by state police on Monday on
the charge of having in his possession
about a gallon of moonshine. This is
Mr. Haldeman’s second offense, as he
had served a sentence last year for
bootlegging. :
James Lorah, of State College, was
also arrested on Monday on a similar
charge, about a quart of moonshine
being found in his possession. In de-
fault of $1000 bail he was also sent to
jail. :

ven, has a full line of stamped and
embroidered models in art embroidery

Twenty-three Knights Templar Past
Commanders Awarded Jewels.
| The Masonic Temple on Allegheny
street was the scene of unusual activ-
ity on the part of Knights Templar, *
last Friday evening, the occasion be-
ing an official visitation by such emi-
| nent Knights as Grand Commander
Arthur D. Bacon, of Harrisburg;
ser, of Scranton, a former Bellefanter
and a member of Constans Command-
ery No. 383; Division Commander
Charles T. Derick, of Bellwood, and
Division Commander Clyde P. Love,
of Harrisburg, as well as a number of
visiting Knights from points in Penn-
sylvania and adjoining States. The
Grand Commander witnessed the con-
ferring of the highest order in York
Rite Masonry, the Order of the Tem-
ple, on a class of ten candidates.
The feature of the evening was the
presentation by the Commandery of
past commander jewels to every living
past commander of Constans Com-
i mandery, twenty-three in number.
. The presentation address was made by
Division Commander Charles T. Der-
ick while the response and speech of
acceptance was feelingly delivered by
Past Grand Cammander Wilson L
Fleming. The past commanders who
received the jewels were Col. J. L.
' Spangler, Col. W. Fred Reynolds, Wil-
son I. Fleming, Dr. J. L. Seibert, Al-
bert C. Mingle, George T. Bush, Harry
Keller, W. Harrison Walker, Mil-
ton S. McDowell, Jesse T. Cherry,
W. Homer Crissman, Mitchell I. Gard-
‘ner, Sydney Krumrine, George S.
Grimm, Dr. Walter J. Kurtz, Wilson
S. Sholl, Major Hugo Diemer, Charles
F. Mensch, William B. Rankin, Dr.
“William U. Irwin, Dr. S. M. Nissley,
. Dr. James R. Barlett and Charles E.
The jewel is a very handsome and
appropriate ornament, being compos-
ed of gold enameled in red and black.
On the bar in relief numerals are the
words “Commandery 83.” Suspended
by two small chains is the pendant
containing in relief a picture of the
court house and the soldiers moun-
ment while in the circle surrounding
it is the inscription “Constans Com-
mandery No. 33, K. T., Bellefonte, Pa.”
The pendant is in the form of a mal-
tese cross, the emblem of the order.
Following the presentation officers
for the ensuing year were elected as
follows: Eminent commander, Wil-
liam H. Brouse; generalissimo, Myron
M. Cobb; captain general, Louis S.
Schad; treasurer P. C., William B.
Rankin; recorder P. C., George T.
Bush; trustees, S. M. Nissley, George
T. Bush and Wilson S. Sholl.
Though located in one of the small-
Constans Commandery has for years
enjoyed an enviable reputation among
Knights Templar everywhere. It has
knighted three men who have become
past grand commanders of Pennsyl-
vania and one of another State. Five
from the Commandery have filled ap-
pointive offices in the Grand Com-
mandery, a record probably unequalled
by any Commandery of its size in the
State. During the past five years the
membership has been almost tripled,
and now numbers 240.
Following the ceremonies of the
evening a roast chicken banquet was
served and after dinner speeches were
made by Eminent Knights Arthur D.
Bacon, Boyd A. Musser, Charles T.
Derick and Clyde P. Love.
On Tuesday evening about thirty
members of the Commandery jour-
neyed to Huntingdon to attend a
meeting of the Commanderies of Di-
vision No. 10, and assist in conferring
er and his staff. :

Another ‘Version of the First
Writing from Spangler, Pa., James
A. McClain Esq., adds another correc-
tion to the “Watchman’s” recent
telephone in this county. :
Mr. McClain is of the opinion that
the first distance test by Mr. Bailey,
fonte and Snow Shoe, as we stated.
He says that the first test was be-
tween Bellefonte and Milesburg sta-
egraph operator. When the test was
made Mr. Bailey was at the Miles-
burg end of the line and the late W. L.
Malin, who was then manager of the
Western Union office here, had the re-
ceiver in Bellefonte at his ear. After
they had actually conversed over wire,
a distance of three miles, Mr, McClain
was given a chance to prove to him-
self that what was then thought next
to impossible was actually very sim-
ple after all. :
It is his opinion that the test was
made some time between 1874 and
1881, though he doesn’t remember the
exact year.
We are inclined to think that Mr.
McClain has the time fairly definitely
fixed though it must have been nearer
1881 than it was to 1874.
