Bellefonte Academy students
have given up the idea of producing a i
musical comedy this year and will!
cling to the minstrelsy. They are now |
industrously practicing for the big
minstrels they will give on the nights
of May 21st and 22nd, the minstrel |

emy interests.
There is no place like the Scen-
ic, in Bellefonte or any nearby town.
It is one of the cleanest and tidiest |
places of amusement to be found any-
where and its nightly programs of mo-
tion pictures are always top-notchers.
That is, they are the best and latest in
filmdom that can be secured, and man-
ager T. Clayton Brown always makes
his selection with an eye single to
pleasing his many patrons. Get the
movie habit and be a regular.
On Wednesday afternoon of
last week D. H. Way drove to Port
Matilda to get two of his children who
were at school. Returning home he
had to cross the railroad and failed to |
notice the approach of the Lehigh ex-
press going west until he was almost
on the track. He became confused |
and stalled his engine just as the Ford
car got onto the railroad. Reaching
into the rear of the car he grabbed
the children and threw them to safe-
ty then jumped just as the train de-
molished his car.
——When Judge Maxwell, of Ly-
coming county, sentenced Orvis W.
Seyler, of Lock Haven, to from one and
a half to three years in the eastern
penitentiary for the theft of motor ac-
cessories, the young man requested
the judge to send him to the western
penitentiary so he would be nearer
home. Seyler has relatives in Centre
county and he doubtless had visions of
landing at Rockview. Judge Maxwell
told the young man that he could not
send him to the western penitentiary
but when he arrived at the eastern in-
stitution he should prefer his request
and he might be transferred.
Last Friday evening two young
men from Nanticoke reached Belle-
fonte on their way to State College to
see the basket ball tourney. The driv-
er of the car was steering an unsteady
course through the streets of the
town when accosted by sheriff E. R.
‘Taylor. The latter warned him
against driving the car while under
the influence of liquor and the man
told the sheriff to go to a warmer
country than this. One word brought
on another until the young men jump-
ed from the car and undertook to
chastise the county official, but the
latter got one of the men while the
other jumped in the car and escaped.
The man arrested gave his name as
Joseph Mikalonis, and he was com-
pelled to pay a fine of twenty dollars
and costs for his misbehavior.

Former Bellefonte Boy Edits Inter-
esting Publication. |
Most of the older people will remem-
ber Mrs. Edward Barry, widow of Ed-
ward Barry, furnace man at the old
Valentine iron works. She lived here !
long after her husband had died and !
kept the family they had been blessed |
with together. About eighteen years
‘ago they moved from Bellefonte. The
boys grew up and scattered. Jim, so’
well remembered, is in business in St.
Louis; Edward and John were mere
lads when they left here. John will
never be back. He fell in the battle
of the Marne, July 15th, 1918. Ed-
ward went out from Michigan with
Battery B, 328th field artillery and
from the diary he kept has compiled
a lasting memorial to himself in a his-
tory of the service of his unit. He is
at present in the automobile business
in Detroit.
The publication is a most compre-
hersive and intimate recital of what
Battery B did from the time of its
mobilization at Camp Custer, Michi-
gan, on September 1st, 1917, until
they were mustered out April 16th, |
1919. We know of no written words
that have had the same impelling iu-
terest for us as those narrating the
experiences of the boys of the A. E. |
F. We have had a most peculiar and :
indescribable reaction to their tales, '
either written or spoken, and a con-
suming desire to analyze for ourselves
the mental attitude of those millions
of young men who, in a twinkling,
were drafted from happy-go-lucky
pursuits of peace into the iron hands
of war discipline. And for what?
None of them knew more than that
responsibility for anything else than
duty had ended and that their future,
their lives were nothing more than
pawns in the terrible game of war.
In “Doings of Battery B” we discov-
ered more that satisfied than we have
found in any of the stories of great
war correspondents. In fact we pick-
ed the volume up merely because it
had been edited by a former Belle-
fonte boy and the greatest compli-
ment we can pay him is that we never:
laid it down until we had read all of
its 175 pages and we had never heard
of a man in its story except private
Edward W. Barry.
Died from Injuries Sustained in
Motor Accident.
William R. Henderson, of Lock Ha-
ven, died at the Lock Haven hospital
about nine o’clock on Saturday morn-
ing as the result of a fractured skull
and other injuries sustained in an au-
tomobile accident near Nittany late
Friday afternoon, while on his way to
State College to witness the inter-
scholastic basket ball contests.
Henderson was one of a party com-
posed of LeRoy Fox; Harry F. Feltz-
er, Lee J. Schwarz and George Fox,
who were traveling in LeRoy Fox's
car. About one hundred yards west
of the Inn, at Nittany, Mr. Fox at-
tempted to pass a big motor bus but
failed to see a coupe driven by Clark
B. Ohl, of Lock Haven, with his moth-
er as a passenger, going in the oppo-
site direction. The latter saw the
Fox car coming and ran his car into
the ditch to avoid a collision but the
Fox car sideswiped him.
Both cars were badly wrecked and
all the occupants more or less injured,
son. Passing motorists took them all
to Lock Haven where Mr. Henderson
was placed in the hospital. He never
regained consciousness and died on
Saturday morning. He was 38 years
old, leaves a wife and one son, his
father and a brother.
Julian Resident Killed
in Auto
James McMullen, who for some
years past has made his home with the
family of Daniel Straw, in Julian, was
knocked down by an automobile driven
by James Wood, of South Philipsburg,
on the streets of Philipsburg on Wed-
nesday evening of last week, and so
badly injured that he died while being
conveyed to the Philipsburg hospital.
A coroner’s jury exonerated Mr.
Wood of all blame, as witnesses of the
accident saw McMullen walk right
in the path of the slowly moving car.
McMullen was 65 years old and un-
married. He had stopped in Philips-
burg from a trip to DuBois. His re-
mains were buried in the Philipsburg
cemetery on Saturday afternoon.
Fell Thirty Feet and Still Lives.
Ralph Sampsell, an employee at
Whiterock quarries, fell thirty feet
down an elevator shaft, about 8:15
o’clock last Thursday evening, onto a
pile of crushed limestone, and though
he is in the Centre County hospital
receiving treatment for his injuries he
is not badly hurt.
Ralph was at the top of the eleva-
tor assisting in replacing a belt that
had just been mended and the belt
slipping he lost his footing and fell to
the bottom of the shaft. He was
brought to the hospital as quickly as
possible where the only injuries dis-
cernible were a cut on the back of his
head and a big bruise under the jaw.
Of course he suffered somewhat from
shock, also.

will begin the publication of Edna
Ferber’s wonderfully interesting
story, “So Big,” which will be run as
a serial in this paper. It is one of the
most intensely interesting stories ever

you to read the first installment. If
you do so we know you will continue

C. M. Muffly, of Howard, Appointed
Jury Commissioner.
In open court yesterday morning,
Judge Arthur C. Dale appointed C. M.
Muffly, of Howard, Jury Commission-
er to succeed the late Joseph A. Em-
erick. Mr. Emerick was the Demo-
cratic member of the board and as no-
body can question Mr. Muffly’s Democ-
* Logan street, to Pleasant Gap, and the °
racy the appointment is not only a
merited one but should meet with pop-
ular approval.
Juvenile Court Hearing.
At a juvenile court hearing yester-
day morning the court made an order
placing in the custody of the overseers
of Benner township Harry LeRoy
Moyer, aged 15, and Betty May Moy-
yer, aged 11, two children of Margaret
Moyer-Weaver. A third child, Doro-
thy Ellen Moyer, aged 13, was taken
charge of by her sister, Mrs. Ruth
Hannah Grubb.
Jane Granis, aged 16, who was
brought over from Philipsburg on a
charge of incorrigibility and a men-
ace to the public health, was discharg-
ed by the court for lack of evidence.
As most of her relatives live in Alle-
gheny county a kind-hearted public
official offered to advance her money
sufficient to take her to the home of
her aunt, in Pittsburgh.

That Pittsburgh-Easton Railroad Bobs
Up Again.
Attorney H. O .Evans on Wednes-
day filed an application with the In-
terstate Commerce Commission, in
Washington, for permission to build a
nev’ low grade railroad from Alleghe- |.
ny to Easton. ' The survey for this:
road was made in 1906 and 1907, and |
at frequent intervals since then a
news item has bobbed up that the road
was to be built, but there is no more
assurance now of such a reality than
there was when the survey was made.
The survey runs through Centre couii-
ty, coming by way of Houtzdale, in
Clearfield county, across the mountain
to Dix station; over the Muncy moun-
tain to Centre Line, thence across to
Pennsylvania Furnace and through
Pine Grove Mills, Boalsburg, Tussey-
ville, Potters Mills, Coburn and Glen
To Harrisburg by Bus.
An effort is now being made by
Mrs. Haller, president of the Woman's
club of State College, and Miss Hill,
: president of that of Bellefonte, to ar-
range for a representative number of
persons from Centre county to attend
the conference of clubs of the Central
district of Pennsylvania, to be held at
Harrisburg, Wednesday, April 15th.
“Miss Nittany,” the party bus, which
will accommodate thirty persons, has
been secured and “will leave at six
o’clock in the morning, . arriving in
Harrisburg in time for the first ses-
sion, the return trip to be made at any
time the party may decide. Persons
who are not club members, wanting a
day in Harrisburg, are invited to join
these women on this drive. It is ask-
ed, however, that reservations for a
seat in the bus be made by both mem-
bers and non-members, to either Mrs.
F. W. Haller, of State College, or Miss
Isabella Hill, at the Academy, as soon
as possible.
Forest Fire in the Barrens.
A farmer in the vicinity of Scotia
was burning rubbish last Thursday
afternoon. The fire started running
across his fields and got into the bar-
rens before it could be stopped. Once
among the dry choppings there it ran
wild for a while and looked as though
it might become serious.
A large crew of fire-fighters gath-
ered and by surrounding it with back-
fire got the flames extinguished but
not before it had burned over four or
five hundred acres, destroying much
young timber.
While the season is rather early for
mountain fires the one in the barrens
was not the only one. Out in the
Snow Shoe section fire swept over sev-
eral hundred acres on Sunday, the
19th, and it was finally conquered
through the arduous work of a large
force of volunteer fire fighters. On
Thursday of last week a forest fire
back in the vicinity of Yarnell also
did considerable damage before it was
Early last week the home of Orvis
Shively, at Stormstown, was destroy-
ed by fire. Mr. Shively was away at
the time but his brother and sister
were sitting in the kitchen reading,
and the first knowledge they had of
the fire was when informed by passing
motorists. All the furniture on the
first floor was saved but nothing was"
gotten out of the second floor.

Wonderful Progress Being Made at
New Aviation ‘Field.
The Spaulding Construction compa-
ny, with Mr. Arthur in charge of the
i work, is making wonderful progress
in their work of putting the new avia-
tion field near Bellefonte, in shape for
the night airmail. The transformer
building has been almost, completed
{and more than half the concrete for
the floor of the big hangar has been
‘poured. The foundations and the floor
of the hangar will be completed be-
fore the steel superstructure and con-
crete block walls will be erected, but
at the rate they are now going there
will be no question about the field be-
ing in shape when needed.
All but one of the four or five sink
holes on the big field have been filled
up and aside from these there is no
great amount of leveling to do to put
the ground in good shape. Compared
with the old field the new one looks a
veritable mammoth in size, and the
pilots should have no difficulty in tak-
ing off or landing there under any and
all circumstances.
Kiwanians Meet.
The Bellefonte Kiwanis club’s regu-
lar weekly meeting and luncheon was

College, who delivered a very excel-
lent address on the “Relation of the
Business Man and the Farmer,” and
in what respect the man in business
and the community as a whole are de-
pendent upon the farmer. Professor
Nixon also offered some good sugges-
tions as to how to effectively co-op-
erate with the farmer so that his con-
dition, as well as the agricultural de-
velopment of the county may be bet-
tered. Spencer, “the magic hand of
physic science,” who was playing at
the Moose Temple theatre the fore
part of this week, was also present
and presented a few exhibitions of his

| —Michael Lamb, the veteran painter and
paper-hanger was down town last Thurs-
day afternoon for the first time in six
weeks. The fact that it took him an hour
and forty minutes to walk from his home
on north Allegheny street will indicate
that he was feeling none too gay physical-
ly. It was his 74th birthday anniversary
and he just had to be out a bit so he es-
sayed the journey after having been in a
very serious condition with influenza since
the middle of February. In fact Michael
was so ill for a while that much of
the time it was feared his next trip from
home would be a riding one instead of a
journey afoot by himself. During a brief
chat we learned that it was on June 6th,
1879, that he came to Bellefonte from Bal-
timore at the solicitation of the late D. G.
Bush to paint the Bush properties here.
During that summer he scraped the kalso-
mine off the Bush house exterior and
painted it a pearl gray. All of the other
Bush properties here were painted at the
same time and then Mr. Lamb returned
home, but early in the spring of 1880 he
decided to come to Bellefonte to locate per-
manently and this has been his residence
ever since.
—M. D. Kelley and his son Robert J.,
were in Bellefonte last Saturday. Mr.
Kelley's appearance was certainly not that
of the very sick man he has been for the
past twenty-two months. Nearly two
years ago he suffered a nervous break-
down and for a long time the disorder baf-
fled all attempts at cure. Growing con-
stantly worse and, to use his own words,
“so low in mind that he didn’t care wheth-
er he lived or died,” he was finally taken
to Dr. D. J. McCarthy, eminent nerve spe-
cialist in Philadelphia, who soon had him
on his feet again and on the way to get-
ting a new outlook on life. Mr. Kelley, as
you probably know, is the senior member
of the well known firm of Kelley Bros.
coal operators who started in Snow Shoe
thirty-two years ago and still have exten-
sive operations throughout the Central
Pennsylvania fields. He maintains homes
in both Altoona and Philadelphia and both
of them are beginning to look good again
to him now that he is getting better of the
nerves. He doesn’t expect to do much for
six months but potter around and all the
office he intends having will be right in his
limousine with his ‘son Robert, who acts
as private secretary for his father and is
to be chauffeur, as well, while the rebuild-
ing of health is going on.

daughters of Mr. and Mrs. William S.

in Bellefonte to know that he is now rap-

Mr. Condo stated that he will probably be
a candidate for the Democratic nomination
for Jury Commissioner next fall, So far
as fidelity to the party and ability are
concerned we know of no one more deserv-
ing or who would make a better official.

—Among the many callers at the
“Watchman” office on Wednesday was Mrs.
H. N. Jones, of Milesburg, who was in
Bellefonte looking after some business
matters and doing a little shopping. Mrs.
Jones’ husband, by the way, has been a
confirmed invalid for a number of years
and she not only looks after his care and
comfort but is practically the sole sup-
port of the family, and is doing it with a
cheerfulness and determination that is
worthy of the highest commendation.
—William Rider, of Beaver Falls, was
an arrival in town last Saturday, for a
visit with his mother, Mrs. Alice Rider, of
Bush's Addition. William has beén- gone
from here fourteen years and in all that
time has made only four visits home. He
has been so busy making a home for him-
self and family, in the city of his adop-
tion that he hasn't been able to take much
time off, but now that the fight is about
won and he is getting on fine perhaps he'll
have more leisure to ' spend midst the
scenes of his boyhood.
—Miss Anne Keichline left Sunday for a
visit of several days in St. Louis, expect-
ing to go from there to Cleveland, to get
her new Chandler car. At Cleveland she
will be joined by Miss Belle Lowery, for
the drive to Moundsville, W. Va., Miss
Lowery’s present home, and then go on
alone to Pittsburgh, to look after some
business. On the drive home from Pitts-
burgh, the after part of next week, Miss
Keichline will have as a guest Mrs. But-
terworth, who will spend Easter here with
her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Knisely.
—Former sheriff W. M. Cronister was a
Bellefonte visitor on Tuesday. We hadn’t
seen him for several years and were sur-
prised to learn that he is still actively en-
gaged in business in Altoona. The Sheriff
had about made up his mind to retire and
spend the rest of his days giving the good
old U. S. A. “the once over,” but inasmuch
as he was looking so unusually vigorous
we concluded that he had come to realize
that he is too young to quit just yet. He
still takes a great interest in Centre coun-
ty affairs and keeps in close touch with
political conditions here.
—Miss Thomazine T. Potter, accom-
panied by Miss Elizabeth Minor, arrived
