The Spring Creek Presbyterian con-
gregation, of Lemont, celebrated the
sesqui-centennial of their church, last
Friday, and it was a most praise-
worthy celebration of one of the old-
est churches in the ccunty. The first
session was held at two o'clock in the
afternoon and began with an organ
prelude by Mrs. L. V. Barber. Rev.
W. J. Wagner, of the Lutheran church,
read the scripture lesson and Rev.
Huff, of the Evangelical church, of-
fered prayer. The anniversary hymn
was next in order after which the pas-
tor, Rev. J. Max Kirkpatrick, deliv-
ered a brief but fervent address of
welcome. The response was made by
Hon. J. Laird Holmes, one of the Sun-
day school scholars in the old church
in his boyhood days.
After singing the hymn, “Faith of
Our Fathers,” Rev. James J. Glenn
gave an interesting sketch of the men
and women of the church whose chris-
tian life was the guiding star of his
young life. His subject was “My Old
Home Church,” and he handled it with
consummate skill. Rev. Glenn is now
a prominent minister in the Carlisle
Presbytery. ’
“Come Thou Almighty King,” was
the appropriate hymn sang prior to
the introduction of James L. Hamill
Esq., of Columbus, Ohio. He is a son
of the late Rev. Robert Hamill, for
forty-five years pastor of the church,
and he gave the audience a fine histo-
ry of his father’s life. In addition to
preaching the gospel Rev. Hamill
served in the Legislature and was
prominent in all walks of life. The
Spring Creek church is indebted to
James Hamill for the beautiful
stained glass windows in the church.
Mr. Hamill is also greatly interested :
in State College, where he graduated
in 1880. His brother, Dr. Samuel
Hamill, of Philadelphia, was also pres- | qu. 4,546 is the youngest daughter,
ent and presided at the afternoon
After singing “All Hail the Power |
of Jesus’ Name,” the congregation
was dismissed with the benediction by
Rev. Harnish. A half hour was spent
in social greetings then the visitors
were taken in hand by the committee
in charge and piloted to the church
lawn where large tables were spread
with spring chicken and all the need-
ed embellishments. In fact a glance
over the tables impressed one with the
thought that the refreshment commit-
tee had left no stone unturned, no
chicken unkilled and no cake unbaked.
The meal was topped off with ice
cream and coffee.
Rev. L. V. Barber, of the Northum-
berland Presbytery, but who at one
time served the Lemont church and
while doing so literally stole the or-
ganist, Miss Mary Dale, has evidently
been forgiven the theft, as he was
unanimously proclaimed toastmaster,
and in response to his call short and
pertinent remarks were made by el-
ders E. C. Ross, William: Goheen,
Frank Wieland and pastor Kirkpat-
rick. Letters of regret were also
read from a number of former mem-
bers who were unable to be present.
At the evening session Mrs. L. V.
Barber rendered the organ prelude,
Rev. Barber read the scripture lesson
and Rev. Glenn offered prayer. Rev.
Walter K. Harnish, of Sinking Valley,
who served as pastor of the Spring
Creek church for eleven years, read a
very comprehensive historical sketch
of the church, after which the congre-
gation joined in singing “The
Church’s One Foundation.”
Rev. C. C. Hays D. D., the Penn-
sylvania synodical executive, of Pitts-
burgh, delivered an address on “The
Presbyterian Pioneers of Pennsylva-
nia,” in which he pictured the Scotch-
Irish Presbyteries as the backbone of
the State. A musical treat was a bass
solo, “Open the Gates of the Tem-
ple,” sung by Mr. Walter Lingle.
Rev. William C. Thompson, pastor
of the Bellefonte Presbyterian church,
was next introduced and spoke on
“The Church Facing the Future.” He
treated his subject so clearly that it
made one feel that there is waiting for
each christian a task to do, and that
each and all should do that ask. After
. singing “Blest be the Tie that Binds,”
i the congregation was dismissed with
the benediction by Rev. John L. Rob-
inson, of Port Royal. It might here
be mentioned that the organ accom-
panist in the afternoon was Miss Mir-
| jam Dreese and in the evening Miss
Dorothy Louder,
In the one hundred and fifty years
of its history the Spring Creek church
has had eleven pastors, namely: Revs.
James Martin, David Wiley, William
Stuart, David McKinney, William
Adams, Robert Hamill, James Hea-
ney, David Hepler, Walter K. Har-
nish, Louis V. Barber and J. Max
Kirkpatrick. The present elders of
the church are Samuel Glenn, Elmer
C. Ross, Ross Louder, William Go-
heen and Frank Wieland.

Alexander—Huyett.—The home of
Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Huyett, at Centre
Hall, was the scene of a very pretty
wedding, at nine o’clock on Wednes-
day morning, when their daughter,
Miss Miriam Huyett, was united in
marriage to Harold O. Alexander, son |
of Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Alexander, also
of Centre Hall. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. S. F. Greenhoe, of
the Lutheran church, and the bride,
who was unattended, looked charming
in a dress of pale yellow satin, and :
carrying a bouquet of cream roses. The
bride’s sister, Mrs. W. A. Magee, of
Wenonah, N. J., played the bridal
chorus from Lohengrin while Mrs. S.
F. Greenhoe sang “I Love You Truly.”
: Violin and piano music was also a fea-
ture. The house decorations were
ferns and cut flowers. Following the
ceremony the entire wedding party
motored to Lewistown where a wed-
ding breakfast was served at the Cole-
man house.

In a Social Way.
Mr. and Mrs. F. W. West and Mr.

evening, given in honor of Mr. and
Mrs. West’s daughter and her hus-

A New Slaughter House for the
: Ecezer Meat Market.
On Saturday the cork insulation of
the new slaughter house which Miss
Helen Beezer, manager of the Beezer
Meat Market in this place, is erecting,
will be completed.
The abattoir, which is the last thing
in sanitation, refrigeration and every
other requirement of the pure food
laws, has been erected just south-west
of town on the site of the late Wil-
liam A. Lyon’s slaughter house. It is
of brick, 38x40, and built by Haupt
and Son. Just as soon as the cork in-
sulation is completed the York Re-
frigeration Co. will install an am-
monia process refrigeration system
and the building will be otherwise
equipped with every modern device
for the speedy and sanitary handling
of fresh and smoked meats.
For years the Beezer market on the
Diamond has been Bellefonte’s leading
dispenser of meats. It is the last, of
the several that we once boasted, to
operate and supervise its own slaugh-
ter house. Beezer’s buy the best cat-
tle on the hoof because they have been
jin the business long enough to know
. good beef cattle and now that they are
about to handle them in a way that
' can leave no question as to the man-
ner in which their meats are prepared
for the block we are assured that, if
possible, their high standard will be
run still higher.
Just as soon as the new building is
ready for occupancy the old one will
be torn down.

——Up to this time the strike in
the hard coal regions has not caused
even a ripple of excitement in Belle-
fonte, probably because of the contin-
ued warm weather and so far the deal-
ers in Bellefonte have had ample sup-
plies on hand to fill all orders. But
no hard coal is coming into Bellefonte
these days and the supply on hand is
steadily growing smaller, and with
cold weather approaching there is cer-
i tain to be an increased demand which
i will soon eat up the supply there
is in Bellefonte. Naturally, the man
who has already laid in his supply is
| the one who is not worrying over the
| strike.
' Centre County Hunters Reluctantly
Leave Alaska.
A telegram received here Tuesday
from I. Newton and John Hess, the
two Centre countians who have been
with the hunting party in British
Columbia and Alaska since August,
stated that they were at Telegraph
Creek, on the way to the States. Only
the necessity of catching the last boat
out before the freeze up made them
leave the great sport they have had.
They reported having had splendid
luck and all in good health.
Lee H. Walker, eldest son of
Mr. and Mrs. W. Miles Walker, of

ing firm. He is now engaged on ex-
tensive improvements in the city of

Ku Kluxers Had Big Picnic at Hecla
Park Saturday.
The Ku Klux gathering at Hecla
Park on Saturday brought out one of
the largest crowds that has been at
the park in years. The crowd was not
in evidence during the day, but were
attracted there for the night ceremo-
nies and the brilliant display of fire-
works. Various estimates place the
number of people at from five to ten
thousand. A good program of ath-
letic sports was held in the afternoon
in which teams competed from various
parts of the district which is composed
of Centre, Clinton, Lycoming, Nor-
thumberland, Tioga, Bradford and
Sullivan counties. = The principal
speaker of the afternoon was Rev.
Gordon A. Williams, pastor of the
Methodist church of Tyrone.
In the evening naturalization cere-
monies were held on the baseball field,
at which time a class of about sixty-
five was initiated into the mysteries of
the Klan. This was followed by the
fireworks display which included such
set pieces as “America,” “The Klan
Call,” and “Thunder and Lightning.”
The last was probably the most spec-
taeular and thrilling of all. "It repre-
sented to a marked degree a real thun- |
der and lightning storm. It was al-
most midnight when the pyrotechnics
were exhausted and it took an hour to
get the parked cars all out and headed
for home. The Klan will be in evi-
dence at the dedication of a new school
building at Warriorsmark today and
will hold their last district meeting at
Island park, Sunbury, on October 10th.
