like to see.
——The “Watchman” last week
made mention of Mrs. Henry C. Quig-
ley’s having sold her home on east Linn
street to Bent L. Weaver, and since
doing so she has purchased the Flem-
ing double house on the same street,
occupied at present by her son, Hugh
Quigley and wife, and H. C. Taylor
and family. She will not get posses-
sion, however, until April 1st, 1926,
when she will move into the side now

——Lewistown had a big Old Home
week celebration the week of July
4th; but the committee in charge is
now wrestling with a shortage in
funds totalling $8,162.92. This is the
general result of Old Home week cel-
ebrations. Bellefonte had one about
ten years ago which was the biggest
week ever known in the history of the
town, but after it was all over there
were many unpaid bills and it is a
question if all of them were ever paid
in full. :
——Although it is less than a
month since the inauguration of the
night airmail service, it has already
lost much of its noveity to residents
of Bellefonte and vicinity, and planes
come and go without attracting any
special attention. Of course, when
flying low, they are generally heard
by somebody. Since the service was
started one change has been made in
the schedule. The time of the ship
going east has been advanced one
hour, so that instead of reaching
Bellefonte at 3:30 o’clock in the morii-
ing its time is now 2:30. e
~——The - Undine Fire company is
making elaborate plans for their an-
nual picnic which will be held at Hec-
la park on Thursday, August 6th. This
is the date originally selected by the
Associated Business Men of Belle-
fonte for their outing, but after due
consideration they decided not to hold
a picnic this year and the Undine fire-
men promptly took the date. The lat-
ter have arranged for two league
games of baseball, band concerts and
a full program of sports. A good or-
chestra will furnish the music for
dancing, afternoon and evening.
Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Casebeer
and daughter Betty, who recently went
to California with the intention of lo-
cating permanently in Los Angeles.
are returning to Bellefonte. Their
fairy dreams of the Golden State have
been badly shattered. In their esti-
mation the wonderful beauty of the
southern part of California exists
mainly on picture postcards, but the
straw that broke the camel’s back of
their sojourn on the Pacific slope was
the earthquake at Santa Barbara sev-
eral weeks ago. They left California
on July 15th and have reserved a room
at the Brockerhoff house where they
will reside until determining upon
their future location.
——Pennsvalley was visited by a
terrific wind storm, on Wednesday
afternoon of last week, accompanied
by some rain. It was especially vio-
lent in the vicinity of Farmer’s Mills
and Penn’s Cave. Just as the storm
broke, Mrs. Foster Frazier, who lives
on a farm near the cave, was on her
way to the barn and the wind was so
strong that it broke the barn doors
and blew her against one of them with
sufficient force as to fracture the
bones in her arm. She was brought
to the Centre County hospital where
an X-ray showed the bones so badly
crushed that it was impossible to set
them at the time owing to the swollen
condition of her arm. The injured
member was bandaged and she return-
ed home, and will come back later to
have the bones set.
MAN FINED FOR KILLING
DOE DEER LAST WEEK.
Three Other Men Mixed Up in Un-
Runkle Frazier, living east of Pot-
ters Mills. confessed to ’Squire Cyrus
Brungard, of Centre Hall, last Friday
morning, that he had unlawfully killed
a doe deer the day previous and paid
a fine of $100, while three other men
who were mixed up in the affair, C.
W. Wingard, of Coburn; F. W. Faber,
of Pittsburgh, and Pat Meehan, of
Patton, are under bail with a proba-
bility of appealing their cases to the
Centre county court.
It appears that on Monday of last
week Mr. Faber, Mr. Meehan and
another man from Patton, went to Co-
burn on a trout fishing expedition.
There they met C. W. Wingard who
took them in his car down to Paddy
mountain where they spent several
days. When they returned to» Coburn
about the middle of the week one of
the men returned home but Mr. Win-
gard took Faber and Meehan to his
sawmill camp just east of Potters
Mills. On Thursday afternoon they
drove to the farm of Runkle Frazier
to get some milk, butter and eggs, and
it is alleged that one of the men ex-
pressed a desire for some fresh meat.
The three men returned to the saw-
mill camp and Thursday evening Mr.
Frazier drove up to-‘the camp in his
car. All the men were seen bustling
around the car and putting in two pa-
per wrapped articles that had the ap-
pearance of guns. They all got in the
car, drove to Potters Mills and about
half a mile up the mountain road, just
beyond the residence of forester Wil-
liam McKinney, they turned onto an
old road running east from the State
highway. Forester McKinney became
suspicious and communicated with
game, « protector Thomas Mosier, of
Bellefonte, who made a hurried trip
to Potters Mills.
Before his arrival, however, three
shots were heard on the mountain in
the direction taken by the four men.
Mr. Mosier and Mr. McKinney took up
‘the trail and a little over half a mile
from the state highway saw Frazier’s
car parked on the roadway. Stepping
into the underbrush they decided to
await developments, and in a few
minutes Mr. Frazier came down an
old road leading up through a ravine
and approached his car. He had his
gun in his hand and proceeded to eject
the shells. The game wardens step-
ped out and inquired the kind of game
he was hunting. Mr. Frazier denied
having been on a hunt but the war-
dens noticed bloody marks on the back
of his hands. About that time Win-
gard came down the old road, also car-
rying a gun. He greeted Frazier as if
they had just met, and the two of
them remarked that they had better
be getting home. But when they un-
dertook to start Frazier’s car it
wouldn’t start, and both men stepped
into the woods and disappeared.
The officers then went up the old
road a short ‘distance where they
found Faber and Meehan, and a few
yards further on the beheaded carcass
of a doe deer, with the entrails remov-
ed. The body was still warm. The
officers notified Faber and Meehan
that they were under arrest but al-
lowed them to go at liberty on agree-
ing to appear before ’Squire Wood-
ring, in Bellefonte, at nine o’clock on
Friday morning. The carcass of the
slain deer was confiscated and brought
to Bellefonte, being turned over to the
hospital on Friday morning.
Messers. Faber and Meehan ap-
peared in Bellefonte on Friday morn-
ing bit in the meantime Mr. Mosier
had secured warrants for the arrest
of Frazier and Wingard and ’Squire
Woodring decided not to hold any
hearing until all parties could be pres-
ent, and set ten o’clock on Saturday
morning as the time. When Mr.
Mosier went to serve the warrant on
Mr. Frazier, however, he discovered
that that gentleman had forestalled
arrest by going before ’Squire Brun-
gard, at Centre Hall, confessing to
having killed the deer and paid his
fine of $100.
At the hearing before ’Squire
Woodring, on Saturday morning, Win-
gard, Faber and Meehan were charg-
ed with aiding and abetting the kill-
ing of a deer unlawfully and conspir-
ing to conceal the crime. After hear-
ing all the evidence the justice impos-
ed a fine of $100 and costs on each,
but all three gave notice of appeal and
gave bond. They have five days in
which to appeal or settle the case.
H. C. Yeager Confesses to Voluntary
H. C. Yeager, proprietor of Yea-
ger’s shoe store in the Bush Arcade,
confessed to voluntary bankruptcy on
Saturday night and closed his store.
One of the reasens given was his ina-
bility to meet his obligation for an
unusually heavy purchase of rubber
shoes and boots for last winter's use,
and the season being none of the best
for such footwear, a good part of his
stock was left on his hands. Mr. Yea-
ger has been in the shoe business for
twenty-five years, or longer, and con-
ducted the only store of its kind in the
down town district of Bellefonte.

——Members of St. John’s Episco-
pal church, of Bellefonte, received
word during the week that Rev. J.
Thomas Heistand, of York, Pa., has
been obliged to reconsider his decision
to become their rector. His present
congregation at York refused to re-
lease him and presented material ar-
guments which induced him to decide
to stay there. The local congregation
will now have to resume their work of
hunting a new rector.

Capt. W. H. Fry Remembered on
For so many years that the writer
is unable to recall the exact number
the weekly letter of Capt. W. H. Fry
from Pine Grove Mills and vicinity
has been an integral part of the con-
tents of the “Watchman.” That his
writings have been appreciated by
everybody in the west end, or those
who have moved from there to other
parts is an undeniable fact, and today
his contributions continue just as
snappy and full of life as ever, not-
withstanding the fact that he was
eighty-two years old last Saturday.
Four score and two years and mem-
bers of his family gave him a surprise
birthday party that day at his farm
home at Rock Springs. All his chil-
dren within reach were present, with
grand-children and great grand-chil-
dren, and while the Captain had his
ear to the ground and sort of smelled
what was going to happen he feigned
the greatest surprise when his chil-
dren and host of close personal friends
to the number of one hundred or more
invaded the home.
Of course they all arrived with bas-
kets laden to bursting with good
things to eat and if there is anything
that can give the Captain a solar plex-
us it is eats. He is right at home
there and always makes a full hand at
a well spread table. But he was also
richly remembered with numerous
gifts, postcards, telephone calls of
congratulation, among the latter be-
ing a long digtance call from his son
William, at Tacoma, Washington. All
in all, it was a most delightful event
for all, and especially for Capt. Fry.
May he live to be a hundred.
Wanted! A Good Man for Burgess.
The candidacy of W. Harrison
Walker for the nomination for judge
of the courts of Centre county nat-
urally takes him out of the running
for the office of burgess of Bellefonte,
and so far no candidates have loomed
upon the horizon for this important
borough office. In fact nobody seems
to crave the office, especially as the
burgess of Bellefonte draws no salary.
He is paid in the honor he gets out of
the position, which is more than offset
by the condemnation he receives if he
fails to size up to the ideals of every
man, woman and child.
Several men have been spoken of
as available timber for burgess but all
seem unwilling to accept the honor.
The time is at hand for the filing of
nominating petitions and there ought
to be somebody in Bellefonte willing
to serve the dear people in this hon-
orabl capacity. .
Shortest Route to Pittsburgh.
James R. Hughes, headmaster of
the Bellefonte Academy, recently re-
turned from a motor trip to Pitts-
burgh and has made the wonderful
discovery that it is possible to drive
from Bellefonte to the Smoky city
over .a route very little more than 150
miles, whereas the customary route of
travel is 185 miles. This has been
made possible through the construc-
tion of a number of new sections of
concrete roadway connecting state
highways. The route as given by Mr.
Hughes for the benefit of auto tour-
ists is from Bellefonte by way of the
Buffalo Run valley to Tyrone; thence
to Greenwood, near Altoona, Hol-
lidaysburg, Cresson, Ebensburg,
Blairsville, New Alexandria, Greens-
burg, Jeannette, Trafford, East Pitts-
burgh, Wilkinsburg, and Pittsburgh.
Coming east the traveler can reverse
the above list of towns.
Col. Boal Goes to Mt. Gretna.
Col. Theodere Davis Boal, of Boals-
burg, went to Mt. Gretna, on Monday,
to attend the annual encampment of
National Guard troops being held
there. Col. Boal is division finance of-
ficer and in that capacity his presence
is rquired at the encampment during
the two weeks the soldiers are at Mt.
Gretna. Col. Boal’s experience as a
soldier dates back to 1916 when he or-
ganized and equipped the Boal troop
for service on the Mexican border, the
organization later being taken over by
the War Department. The troop also
went to France where Col. Boal serv-
ed as an aide on the staff of Major
General Charles H. Muir. Ever since
the war he has taken a deep interest
in the National Guard and his home at
Boalsburg is always surrounded with
a military atmosphere.
Land Owners May Kill Destructive
Under a ruling, effective July 13th,
the Board of Game Commissioners di-
rected that land-owners and lessees in
certain counties of the State may kill
deer that are damaging their crops.
Centre county is in the permitted area.
Land owners, lessees and their em-
ployees hired on a monthly or annual
basis may kill a deer and retain the
carcass, if the animal is known to be
damaging growing crops or fruit
trees. It can be done, however, only
by persons whose lands are open to
public hunting and should be done
only after consultation with the local
game protector as to the advisability

Arrested for Dynamiting Spring
At various times during the trout
fishing season fishermen who observe
the law have been obsessed with the
idea that some person was dynamiting
Spring creek, and communicating
their belief to fish wardens the latter
put a watch on the creek. It will be
recalled that three Bellefonte men
were arrested late in June on the
charge of placing dynamite in the
stream and all plead guilty and are
paying their fines and costs on the in-
stallment plan. .
On or about June 22nd fish wardens
discovered three men up Spring creek,
who undoubtedly had been using dy-
namite, but they saw the officers in
time to make their escape by automo-
bile. The wardens, however, got
some very tangible evidence as to the
identity of the men and on Monday
John Schmittle, of Glasgow, was ar- |
rested. He plead guilty to the charge
and agreed to pay his fine and costs
in bi-weekly installments. On Tues-
day Mr. Haffley, of the Department of
Forests and Waters, at Harrisburg,
with fish warden Sperring, of Lock
Haven, and sheriff E. R. Taylor went
to Glasgow and arrested Ray Reynolds
and Oscar Dickson, on the charge of
being the two men who were with
Schmittle on June 22nd.
Both men protested their innocence
of the charge on which they were ar-
rested but they were brought to Belle-
fonte and put up cash bail for their
appearance before justice of the peace
S. Kline Woodring for a further hear-
ing yesterday afternoon, but the
“Watchman” went to press before the
hearing was held.
Schmittle, who plead guilty to the
charge, showed from his talk consid-
erable fam’liarity with the best trout
streams in Centre, Clinton and Ly-
coming counties, information that he
could have obtained in no other way
than by frequent visits to the streams
Gypsies Rob Man at Beech Creek.
Two automobile loads of gypsies in-
vaded Beech Creek, Thursday of last
week, and several of the women made
a call at the Beech Creek State bank.
After they had departed a resident of
that town discovered that his pocket
had been picked and a roll of money
| amounting to $100 was missing. It
is also stated that the bank missed
about $40 in silver and change. Offi-
cers were promptly notified but up to
last reports they had not succeeded in
getting any trace of the gypsy au-
Medical Society Held Meeting in
About one hundred and fifty mem-
bers of the West Branch medical so-
ciety were present at the annual
meeting held at the Hotel Philips, in
Philipsburg, on Wednesday of last
week. Dr. David Dale, of Bellefonte,
was elected president for the ensuing
year, and Dr. Joseph Courson, of
Hughesville, secretary and treasurer.
It was decided to hold the annual
meeting next year at the Nittany
Country club, at Hecla, at a date to
be fixed by the president.
