Immarn— : LEMONT PRESBYTERIANS CEL- EBRATE SESQUI-CENTEN- * NIAL OF CHURCH 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 meeting. 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. — Prehistoric monsters re-live in big love drama, “The Lost World.” Moose Temple theatre tonight and to- morrow night. 39-1t 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. of Mr. and Mrs. E. M.

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. armen comes eect. ——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. k Lee H. Walker, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. Miles Walker, of Bellefonte, who the past twelve years has been assistant director of public . works on the island of Santa Domingo, has resigned that position and become associated with a New York contract- ing firm. He is now engaged on ex- tensive improvements in the city of Manzinilla Colima, on the west coast ‘of Mexico. — Residents of Spring township will be called upon to vote, at the reg- ular election on November 3rd, on the proposition to incur an indebted- ness of $64,000 for the purpose of erecting a new school building at the “Red Roost.” At present the town- ship is free of debt and has an as- sessed property valuation of $920,444.

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. ——The exterior of the new pump house at the big spring in Bellefonte has been completed and strangers who have stopped to view the improve- ments aver that it looks one hundred thousand dollars to the good.
