happened that Mr. Horner was
ploughing in the same field and when
he drove around in the vicinity of the
deer they became frightened and
started for cover. Unfortunately a
two year old buck ran into a wire
fence and broke its neck. Game pro-
tector Thomas G. Mosier was notified,
and went to Tusseyville and brought

few weeks just twenty-seven rodents
have been trapped in the press room
of this office. But we want it distinct-

“rats in our head,” nor “rats in the
bread basket.” The number caught
were not our regular boarders but in-
fested the entire block and perhaps a
good portion of the West ward. At
night they came sky-larking into our
press room, stepped on the hidden
trap and there was another angel in
rat heaven. We might also add that
our traps are still in fine working con-
dition and if any more rats want to
tread the path of their forbears the
runways are always open. Long-tail-
ed rats, short-tailed rats or rats with-
out any tail will all be treated alike.
——“Qh, you dears!” said a bevy of
girls at the express office in Belle-

dearing epithet was not directed to the
young men congregated there but to
two three month’s old fawns cooped
up in a box, awaiting transport to
game warden Henry W. Wingard, at
Ingleby. The fawns had been found
in the woods of Snow Shoe township
where they had evidently been aban-
doned by their mothers or else or-
phaned by some unknown pot hunter.
They were taken in charge by David
Chambers and for six weeks had been
kept at his home at Clarence, bottle-
fed and given the best of care until
now he deemed them old enough to
take care of themselves and hence was
sending them to Mr. Wingard for lib-
eration in a mountainous section
where they will not be molested by
dogs. The fawns were unusually
tame and showed not the slightest
fear of the human touch. There was
a buck ‘and a doe, but they were not

CENTRE COUNTY MAN
DROWNED AT NORRISTOWN.
James Sweetwood Loses Life while
Canoeing on Sunday.
James Sweetwood, a native of Cen-
tre Hall but who was also well known
in Bellefonte, was drowned Sunday
afternoon while canoeing on Perkio-
men creek, near Norristown, when his
canoe was swept over the dam near
Indian Head park and he was caught
in the swirling rapids below the breast
of the dam. The creek was unusually
high owing to torrential rains in the
eastern part of the State the latter
end of the week. Sweetwood, with
Walter Smith and Ernest Hausman,
attempted to cross the stream in a ca-
noe but the current was so swift that
the frail craft was carried over the
dam. Smith and Hausman success-
fully battled the swift current and
reached shore in an exhausted condi-
tion. Sweetwood drowned while ex-
cited spectators on the shore were
making frantic efforts to save him.
The unfortunate young man was a
son of Ira A. and Sarah E. Sweetwood
and was born at Centre Hall. He
would have been twenty-five years old
in November. During 1923 and 1924
he lived in Bellefonte, being employ-
ed as a clerk in the offices of the State
highway. Two years ago his parents
moved from Centre Hall to Norris-
town where Mr. Sweetwood is em-
ployed on the State highway. Last
fall young Sweetwood resigned his
job here and went to Norristown to
accept a position with the P. R. R.
company. During the recent retrench-
ment campaign of that company he
was laid off, then went to work for the
State highway. .
While living in Bellefonte he en-
listed as a member of the headquar-
ters troop, 52nd machine gun battal-
ion, and was appointed squadron ser-
geant major. He was to have come
to Bellefonte next week to go with
the Bellefonte soldiers to their annual
encampment and had made applica-
tion for a transfer from headquarters
troop to Troop B, and was to have
filled the position of company clerk.
In addition to his parents he is sur-
vived by the following brother and
sisters: Miss Carrie M., of Philadel-
phia; Mrs. Ida Bromhall, of McCutch-
eon, N. J.; William, of Norristown,
and Elizabeth, of Trenton, N. J.
The body was recovered about two
o'clock on Tuesday afternoon about
two miles below where the drowning
took place. It had beer washed ashore
on the banks of Perkiomen creek. It
will be shipped to Centre Hall today
and funeral services held in the Pres- |
byterian church at that place at 9:30
o’clock tomorrow morning. The serv-
ices will be in charge of the pastor,
Rev. J. Max Kirkpatrick.
Burial in the Centre Hall cemetery |
will be made with military honors, the |
headquarters troop and Troop B, of |
Bellefonte, to attend in a body.
Escaped Prisoner Sentenced. Hender-
shot Sent to Jail.
At a special session of court on
Tuesday morning, John Ponsall, who
escaped from Rockview penitentiary
in August, 1924, and was captured in
Syracuse, N. Y., last week, was sen-
tenced to serve an additional term of
two and a half to five years in addi-
tion to completing his old term. Pon-
sall was sent up from Warren courtv
Edward Brown, a young man from
Spring Mills refused to plead guilty
to a charge of the larceny of a mo-
tometer and was remanded in the cus-
tody of the sheriff to await trial at
the next term of court.
In the case of David M. Hendershot.
of Bellefonte, convicted at the Febru-
ary term of court on two counts, the
illegal transportation of intoxicating
liquors and second, illegal possession
of same, the court last Friday hand-
ed down a decision refusing him a new
trial and he was called up on Tuesday
morning for sentence. District attor-
ney Ivan Walker told the court that
he had it on fairly reliable authority
that since his trial and conviction
Hendershot had been selling liquor.
The young man was represented by
John G. Love who said that so far as
he knew Hendershot had not violated
the law since his conviction. That he
worked every day, was married and
had a nine week’s old child, and he
asked the court to be as lenient as
Without any ceremony Judge Dale
announced that he would suspend sen-
tence on the first count and on the
second count the sentence of the court
is that Hendershot pay a fine of $250,
costs of prosecution and undergo im-
prisonment in the county jail for not
less than one year nor more than two.
Hendershot is mess sergeant in Troop
B, of Bellefonte, and when the sol-
diers go to camp the latter part of
next week a new man will have to be
selected to handle the provende-
Odd Fellows to Picnic on Labor I ay.
The second annual picnic of all Odd
Fellow and Rebekahs of Central
Pennsylvania, will be held on Labor
day, September 7th, at Hecla Park.
Last year about 7,000 people attended
this picnic, representing about forty
Odd Fellows lodges and nearly that
many Rebekahs, and this year the
committee hopes to still make it bet-
ter. This is a beautiful park, central-
ly located with many new improve-
ments, including a dining hall 100x26
feet. Baseball games, dancing, bath-
ing, canoeing and plenty other amuse-
ments will be provided to accommo-
date a large crowd. A good orches-
tra will be there to liven it up. Go,
and take your friends, as everybody
will be welcome. a
Public Service Commission Approves ' Blanchard-Moshannon Coal Properties
Telephone Company Sale.
The Public Service Commission, on
Tuesday, approved the sale of the
Penn State Telephone company to the
Bell Telephone company of Pennsylva-
nia. It will be recalled that an agree-
ment of sale had been entered into
several months ago by the board of
directors of the two companies and
endorsed by the stockholders, but it
was also necessary to secure the ap-
proval of the Public Service Commis-
sion. Now that this has been obtain-
ed negotiations for closing the deal
will likely be resumed without much
delay, though it will naturally take
considerable time to make the trans-
fer of the property and adjust connec-
tions to accommodate the telephone
The Penn State company has a lab-
yrinth of wires and exchanges cover-
ing ten counties in Central Pennsyl-
vania, with a total of approximately
twelve thousand subscribers. It also
has long distance connections east and
west. The Bell Telephone company
of Pennsylvania has about forty
thousand phones in service, and when
it takes over the Penn State company
it will naturally mean considerable
work in effecting the change. But the
public will be benefitted to the extent
of using only one telephone, whereas
two are now almost a necessity, in
business places especially.
In fact engineers of the Bell com-
pany have already figured out that
when all duplicates are eliminated it
will mean but seven hundred addition-
al phones on their lines in the entire
Bellefonte district, which includes
State College, Boalsburg, Centre Hall
and Millheim. The present switchboard
in the Bellefonte exchange is ample to
accommodate the extra lines that will
be necessary to cover the service here,
but it will probably be necessary to
increase the force of operators.
Mrs. Coll Asks Increased Support for
At a brief session of court on Mon-
day morning attorney W. G. Runkle
presented the ‘petition of Mrs. Guy
Coll for an increase in the amount of
allowance granted her for the support
of her seven year old daughter. Mr.
and Mrs. Coll have been separated for
approximately eighteen months, and
at the time of separation Judge Hen-
ry C. Quigley made an order requiring
Mr. Coll to pay ten dollars a month
for the support of his child. Mrs.
Coll claims that this amount is not
sufficient now and asks for $40 a |
month. James C. Furst Esq., repre- |
sented Mr. Coll, who conducts a bar- :

In accordance with an order of the
Clinton county court R. P. McClellan,
A. R. MeNitt and T. R. Bridgens, re-
ceivers for the Blanchard-Moshannon
Mining company, will offer at receiv-
er’s sale on the property in West
Keating township, Clinton county, on
Thursday, August 27th, all the right,
title and interest of above named com-
coal land, together with the company’s
interest in six miles of railroad, ten-
‘ement houses, and all the parapherna-
lia of an operating coal company; sub-
ject, however, to two mortgages, one
for $91,036.10 given by the Blanchard-
Moshannon Mining company to the
Blanchard-Moshannon Coal company,
and one for $31,960 given by the
Blanchard-Moshannon Mining Compa-
ny to T. B. Bridgens. The title to
over 3700 acres of the land is not vest-
ed in the company because of unpaid
purchase money aggregating about
In addition to the above there are
claims against the company aggregat-
ing between one and two hundred
thousand dollars, and may exceed
these figures. The Blanchard-Mo-
shannon Coal company was promoted
less than three years ago by William
G. Blanchard, of Pittsburgh, and the
late Charles R. Kurtz, of Bellefonte.
Preferred stock amounting to $170,000
was sold in Bellefonte and Centre
county, and so far as can be learned
this was the only real money put into
the enterprise. A railroad was built
to the coal lands and two big steam
shovels secured under lease to carry
on stripping operations. Considerable
coal was mined in. this way but last
December unpaid bills, labor. claims,
etc., became so pressing that the com-
pany was compelled to cease opera-
htions. In February Robert F. Hunter
and Nelson E. Robb, both of Belle-
fonte, petitioned the Clinton county
court for the appointment of a receiv-
er for the company, and the court ap-
pointed Messrs. McClellan, MecNitt
The receiver's sale will develop
what chances the local stockholders
have of seecuring any portion or all of
their $170,000 invested in the concern.
A movement will naturally be made to
purchase the property for the benefit
of the stockholders and the only ques-
tion is their ability to finance it.
Fire at Hart Home on Friday Night.
About 10:30 o’clock on Friday night
ber shop in Bellefonte, and he stated
ly willing to pay the bills for any un-
usual expense in the keep of his
daughter, such as schooling, deetor’s
bills, music lessons, etc., but does not
feel that the regular allowance should
be increased. The cor :¢ heard testi-
mony and argument on both sides and
will render a decision later.
Fresh Air Kiddies will Leave for New
York This Evening.
The two hundred and more fresh
air children from New York, who have
been guests of Bellefonte and Centre
county families the past two weeks,
will leave this evening for their homes
in the city. The children will be taken
to the Y.M. C. A. at seven o'clock
where they will all be prepared for
their night’s journey to New York,
marching to the Pennsylvania railroad
station in time for the 8:16 p. m. train.
During the two weeks the children
have been in Centre county they have
enjoyed every minute of their stay,
and with very few exceptions their
host or hostesses have enjoyed having
them. The children are a bright,
healthy lot, and there is no doubt but
that their brief sojourn has been ben-
eficial to them in various ways and
will be a glimpse of country sunshine
that they will recall for many days.
Two More Prisoners Escape froin
Between two and three o’clock on
Wednesday afternoon, two more pris-
oners made their escape from Rock-
view penitentiary by cutting their way
through the barbed wire stockade in
the rear of the big cannery building.
The men are both from Philadelphia
and were among the last consignment
of one hundred prisoners sent to
Rockview from the eastern peniten-
The men are Francis Short, sent up
on March 2, 1924, for five to ten years
for robbery, and James Doersch, sen-
tenced on July 2, 1924, for five to ten
years, also for robbery. Up to the
time the “Watchman” went to press
no trace of the fugitives had been ob-
Making Survey for New Road Over
A corps of state highway engineers
are now engaged in making a survey
for a new road over the Seven moun-
tains from Milroy to Bellefonte and
State College. The route will be
through Coxe’s valley, leaving the
present road at the Long Mountain
bridge and eliminating the dangerous
curve at the tip of the mountain
known as the Devil’s Elbow, and also
avoiding some dangerous grades. The
new route, which will be two miles
longer than the old one, will join the
present road at the old Foust place.

Public Sale of Household Furniture.
—At the late residence of Miss Har-
riet Hart, N. Spring St., Saturday,
Aug. 1, at 1:30 p. m. 30-1t
fire was discovered on the third floor
of the double house on north Spring
street, the property of Albert Schad
and occupied by Mrs. William Hart
to the court that his client is perfect | and daughters and Frank Houghton
and family. The fire originated on
| the Hart side and had gained consid-
j erable headway when discovered. The
building is of brick with a slate roof
and the flames being thus confined al-
most entirely to the interior of the
building made it extremely difficult to
fight, but it was finally overcome.
Considerable excitement was occa-
sioned during the fire by a report that
1a young. girl who makes her home
with the Hart family, was imprison-
ed in her room on the third floor of
the building. Ralph Mallory went up-
stairs to investigate but found the
room a mass of flames. Fireman Paul
Hagg tied a wet towel over his face
and rushed upstairs but was so nearly
overcome with heat and smoke that he
had to be dragged from the building.
It later developed that the young girl
was the first one out of the house, and
had managed to save practically all
Most of the furniture was removed
from the house so that the loss to the
tenants is not great.
As the flames were confined entire-
ly to the rear portion of the third
floor of the house, and the walls were
not injured Mr. Schad’s loss is mostly
covered by insurance. Mrs. Hart is
an invalid but she was removed from
the burning building without undue
excitement and taken to the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Mallory, later being re-
moved to the Centre County hospital
and is none the worse for her exper-
ience. The Houghton family moved
back into their side of the building on
Seneca S. Walker Purchased Triangle
Seneca S. Walker, of Thomas
street, last week purchased from Wil-
liam O. McCoy -the filling station at
the Triangle, a short distance east of
the old aviation field, on the Nittany
valley road. He took charge on Thurs-
day and this week is busy making
some alterations and improvements
which will no doubt prove attractive
to the average automobile tourist. A
tea room will be opened for the serv-
ing of light lunches, sandwiches, ice
cream, etc. The ground on which the
filling station is located is owned by
Frank M. Crawford, and if Mr. Walk-
er’s venture proves successful he has
hopes of purchasing the land and
building a home for himself and fam-
ily in close proximity to the filling
