that manager T. Clayton Brown is

the Scenic is the only place to see
———The police of Bellefonte have
failed to find any definite clues that
might lead to the discovery of the men
who, on Wednesday night of last week,
burglarized the mill of the C. Y. Wag-
ner Co., blowing open the safe and
stealing about one hundred dollars in
cash. At noon on Thursday three men
traveling in an automobile attempted
to hold up a bank in a small town near
Bloomsburg, Columbia county, but be-
came frightened before they pulled
the job and made a get-away in their
waiting machine before they could be
captured. It is just possible that this
was the same gang that robbed the
Wagner mill, as they could easily
travel to Bloomsburg between the time
the mill was robbed and noontime the
next day, when the attempt was made
to rob the bank in Columbia county.
A Big Drive to be Made in Interest of
Bellefonte Y. M. C. A.
“Five hundred members in four
days” is the slogan of a drive to be
‘ made the latter part of this month for
membership in the Bellefonte Y. M. C.
A. This was decided upon at a pre-
liminary meeting held on Monday
evening. The exact dates for the drive
will be September 28th, 29th and 30th,
and October 1st.
The winter season is approachin
when the young people of the town
will naturally seek some place of en-
tertainment. The only regular places
{of amusement in Bellefonte at the
present time are the movie picture
theatres. While officials of the Y. M.
C. A. have no intention of decrying
these places they feel that all possi-
ble effort should be put forth to inter-
est thé young men and women in the
Y. The association building was only
recently overhauled at considerable
expense and is as good a plant as can
. be found in any town the size of Belle-
fonte, that must depend entirely upon
the community for its support. And
; the only sure way of getting such sup-
‘ port is from membership. .
{ During the summer the people o
' Bellefonte and vicinity entertained in
the neighborhood of two hundred fresh
air children from New York city, at
an expense of approximately two
thousand dollars. While this was a
worthy charity, the children of Belle-
fonte and surrounding community
were passed by unnoticed. Charity
should always begin at home, and if
the people of Bellefonte believe in
this adage they will rally to the sup-
port of the big drive for membership
to be made by the Y. M. C. A. on the
dates above given.
Another meeting will be held the
latter part of this week when the de-
tails of the drive will be worked out.
At that time committees will be ap-
pointed and all necessary plans made.
Watch the papers next week for full
announcements, but more than all
else, decide now to put your shouider
to the wheel and help push the drive
Brook Trout Again Find Home in the
Big Spring.
It has been years since the last one
of the trout that attracted so much at-
tention in the Big Spring disappeared
from the source of the town’s water
supply. Some of them were sneaked
out by fishermen, some were removed
because they had become diseased and
others just disappeared. Almost con-
tinuously, since, the question has come
up: Why are there no trout kept in
the Spring.
So insistent has it been since the
trout in Spring creek have become the
object of such general interest that |
Mr. Cunningham, chairman of the
Water committee of council, set about
to procure, a few trout for the spring.
It was. thought that the native brook
trout should be the only variety there,
so with the co-operation of William
Haas, superintendent of the Pleasant
Gap hatchery, Fish Commissioner
Buller was interested to the extent of
presenting. eight beauties to the bor-
ough of Bellefonte. As there are no
large brook trout at the Gap hatchery
it became necessary to bring them all
the way from Cory. This Mr. Haas
did last Saturday, bringing eight,
ranging-in length from 10 to 14 inch-
es. Two were carried in a can. They
arrived here in fine condition and are
having the time of their lives jumping
at the flies that skim over the surface
of the Spring.
Shock Absorbers Being Turned Out in
A new firm which is already begin-
ning to make its mark in automobile
circles is the Aero Shock Absorber
company, located and doing business
in Bellefonte. Eben B. Bower is the
superintendent and general manager
of the company and his assembiing
plant is in his warehouse down near
the Lamb street bridge, over Spring
creek. The company is now turning
out upwards of one hundred sets of
absorbers a day and has already
placed over two thousand sets in Penn-
sylvania, New Jersey and Maryland
towns. ] ;
At present the absorber is manufac-
tured entirely for Ford cars, but the
local company controls the patent and
its field covers the entire United
States and wherever Ford cars are
sold and in use. As there are now
over-twelve million Ford cars on the
market they have fertile territory in
which to work. Mr. Bower has confi-
dence in the attachment he is putting
on the market and is looking forward
to the time when the absorber plant
will be one of the big industries of
Want a New Bank at Howard.
Ten citizens of Howard and vicinity
have made application for a charter
for a new bank at that place to be
known as the Farmers and Merchants
National bank. The capitalization is
to be $50,000, which will be made up
of one thousand shares of stock of a
par value of fifty dollars.
It hasn’t been such a long time ago
, that the only banks in Centre county ,
were located in Bellefonte, Philips-
| burg, Centre Hall and Millheim. Now
[there are two at State College, two in
Centre Hall, two in Millheim, one at
Rebersburg, one at Spring Mills, one
! at Port Matilda, one at Snow Shoe and
' one at Howard, with a new application
for a second one at the latter place.
And they all seem tc be flourishing
and in a healthy condition.

: Mr. and Mrs. John Tyson, of
' Lewistown, are receiving congratula-
, tions on the birth of a daughter. Mrs.

as Miss Ruth Meek, the younger
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Meek.
.——Some unknown person has
again started the rumor that the avia-
tion field is to be moved from Belle-
fonte because of the dangerous air
pockets in this locality. Right here it
might be said that the pilots who have
been flying the route from New York
to Cleveland since the airmail was in-
thing as “air pockets.” There are air
currents which are naturally influ-
enced by the alternating mountains
and valleys, but the mountains extend
from Virginia to Canada and the pres-
other point would be. All these facts
were taken into consideration when
the present route was laid out and
Bellefonte selected as the place for
the landing field in Pennsylvania. The
matter was again fully considered
when the question of a new field arose
six months ago, and the fact that the
Postoffice Department spent upwards
of one hundred thousand dollars in
equipping the present field should be
the most decisive evidence that there
is nothing in the rumor that the Belle-
fonte field is not as good as can be
found anywhere.
——The “Watchman” last week told
of the finding of the stolen Ford coupe
of Charles E. Gates in Altoona, but
when that young man went up to that
city on Thursday to bring it home he
found it so badly wrecked that it could
not be driven to Bellefonte. In fact
it had to be towed to the Ford plant
for repairs. While there is no definite
knowledge as to who stole the car sus-
picion points to two young men who
left. Bellefonte at three o’clock on the
morning of the night the car was
stolen, skipping their hotel bill and
having passed a worthless check for
$25.00 the day previous. On arriving
in Altoona they parked the car close
to police headquarters and there it
stood until the Altoona department
partment about the stolen car. And
when Mr. Gates went up on Thursday
take the names of the young men sus-
pected of having taken the car, telling
the owner that he ought to be satis-
fied to get the car back, even though
it cost considerable to repair the dam-
age done. Mr. Gates went up on Sun-
day and brought his car back to Belle-
fonte. In the meantime an effort will
be made to discover who took the car.
Buffalo Run Woman Badly Burned
i While Boiling Applebutter.
While boiling applebutter on the
farm of Miss Annie Gray, in Buffalo
Run valley, last Friday, Miss Léttie
Cupp, housekeeper for Charles Bloom,
who occupies the farm, was so terribly
burned when her clothing caught fire
that she is now in a serious condition
in the Centre County hospital. Miss
Cupp was stirring the applebutter in
the big copper kettle when the wind
blew a spark from the hot fire against
her dress. Her clothing quickly ig-
nited and before she realized what had
happened she was virtually a living
torch. The only one at the house at
the time was her small nephew and he
was too young to render any assist-
ance in extinguishing the flames. .
Fortunately Miss Cupp retained
enough presence of mind to throw her-
self on the ground and roll over
and over until the flames were extin-
guished. The little nephew then went
to the nearest neighbor, a considera-
ble distance away, and summoned
help. A physician was called and
after rendering first aid brought the
woman to the hospital. Although her
suffering has been considerably reliev-
ed she is still considered in a serious
Another Closed Bank to be Reopened.
Several months ago the Producers
and Consumers bank of Philadelphia,
closed its doors. Already plans are
under way for its creditors to reopen
it. When it failed the creditors were
informed that they could hope for not
more than sixty cents on the dollar,
then some one suggested almost the
same plan this paper suggested to the
creditors of the Centre County and
they got busy. They went even fur-
ther than we suggested that creditors
of the closed local institution might
go. They decided to leave all the
money ‘they had in the bank there to
help them in the work of recouping
their losses ultimately. And they will
be recouped.
This is only one of many banks
that have failed in Pennsylvania since
the Centre County closed its doors
and been reopend on firm footing and
i with good management that will
eventually work out its problems.
{ The creditors of the Centre County
might be better advised if they were
to follow the example of people in
other communities than they are by
listening to some who are profiting
by their dilemma, others who hope to
profit by it and others who “don’t
want a third bank in Bellefonte.”

“Buddy” Nighthart Accidentally
{ Drowned in Hughes Swimming -
i Pool.
Edward Nighthart, thirteen years
old, and more familiarly known
among his playmates as “Buddy,” was
I accidentally drowned in the swimming
‘pool on Hughes field on Wednesday
afternoon, the body not being recov-
ered until between eleven and twelve
‘ o’clock Wednesday night. The child
was among a group of boys who had
gone to Hughes field to watch the
Bellefonte Academy- football team at
rowed a scootér from one of his play-
mates and scooted back and forth
across the field.
When football practice ended all
the boys followed the players from
the field and returned home. Not see-
ing “Buddy” on the field the boy who
“had loaned him the scooter naturally
supposed he had returned home and
about six o'clock went to the Doll
home, where the lad lived, to get his
scooter. But “Buddy” had not return.
ed home. A search was then institut-
ed around the town but no informa-
tion as to his whereabouts being ob-
tained a searching party was formed
to go to Hughes field.
The swimming pool seemed the
most likely place to look and several
men plunged in and began a search.
In the course of half an hour the body
was found, the hands of the drowned
boy still clutching tightly the handle-
bar of the scooter. The only explana-
tion of the drowning is that the boy
had been riding on the concrete wall
of the swimming pool, scooted over
the edge into the water, and being
unable to swim was drowned. A cor-
oner’s inquest returned a verdict of
accidental - drowning.
. Edward Nighthart was a son of
Charles and the late Mame Doil
Nighthart. His mother died over six
years ago and shortly thereafter he
and his older brother, John, were
placed in the Catholic school at Cres-
son. They returned home about two
months ago and have been making
their home with their aunt and uncles,
Mrs. Rose Doll Pearl, George and
Frank Doll. No arrangements for the
funeral have yet been made.
Chapter of I. W. L. Organized in
| oef Bellefonte.
In response to a call sent out last
week a goodly number of those inter-
“ested in out of door life met in the ar-
: bitration room of the: court house
' here, last Friday evening, and organ-
{ized a chapter of the Izaak Walton
! League of America.
It had been anticipated that one of
the national officers of the League
, would be present for the institution of
the new chapter, but as such was not
the case there was little done further
than to elect the following officers:
President, G. F. Musser; secretary,
Charles Brachbill; treasurer, J. J. Kil-
patrick. The executive committee has
not been named by the president up
to this writing.
The annual convention of the Penn-
sylvania Chapters of the League will
be held in Williamsport the latter part
of this month and Bellefonte will be
well represented.
The Izaak Walton League is grow-
ing all over the United States. Its ob-
ject is conservation of forests and
streams and keeping the out of doors
clean. Within a very short time for-
ty-one chapters have been organized
in Pennsylvania and there will be
more. This is very significant. Es-
pecially to Centre county sportsmen. ’
With Pennsylvania organizing under
the potential leadership of a great na-
tional organization it is going to make
the matter of fish and game distribu-
tion by the State one of vital interest
to us. That is, the more organizations
there are working for their own dis-
tricts the more will a militant one be
necessary here in Centre county if we
are to be properly taken care of.
Home for Sick Children to be Built
Near Lewisburg.
The various Presbyteries in Central
Pennsylvania have undertaken the
| erection of a home in Union county
| for the care of convalescent orphan or
semi-orphan children. A farm four
miles west of Lewisburg, in Buffalo
valley, has been donated by Mrs. Jane
Harrison as the location for the home
and plans are now being prepared for
a $75,000 building to be e d there-
cn. This will be the first home of the
kind to be erected in Pennsylvania
and within the territory which the
home will serve are 432 churches and
95,000 church members. The capaci-
ty of the home will be from forty-five
to fifty children. Definite plans for
the prosecution of the work will be
made at the fall meetings of the var-
ious Presbyteries to be held next
Tomorrow, the Jewish New Year.

—It seemed something in the nature of
a family reunion in this office last Friday
morning when three generations of the
Tressler family, of State College, dropped
in for a little call while waiting for the
bus. There was Mrs. E. 8. Tressler, her
daughter, Mrs. J. E. Miller, and the latter's
daughter, Miss Elizabeth Miller. The la-
dies had beer shopping a bit and that be-
ing done they made the call here. Since
women have gotten into politics we never
fail to inquire as to their reactions to the
game men played alone so long and we are
often surprised to discover that many of
them are quite abreast of the situation.
Such was the case with our callers of Fri-
day. They seemed well informed on the
judicial contest up there and the returns
of the primary proved it. Miss Elizabeth
Miller is a Sophomore at State this year.
