———Announcement was made last
Friday of the sale of the Chicago,
Aurora and Elgin railroad, which op-
erates high-speed electric railroads
through the Chicago section, to
Samuel Insull, an operator of
public utilities in Chicago and vicin-
ities. Local interest attaches to this
sale because of the fact that the vice-
president and general manager of the
Chicago, Avrora and Elgin railroad
is J. Harvey McClure, son of James
I. McClure, of Bellefonte. Mr. Me-
Clure, will retire from the above cor-
poration and become the operating
head of the Cincinnati—Dayton line,
which has been purchased by Phila-
But No Decision Reached on Which
One to Build.
The Spring township school board
has finally selected three apparently
suitable sites for the new school build-
ing at Pleasant Gap, though so far
they have not decided which one will
finally be approvad as the place on
which to build.
One is the Thomas Jodon site, locat-
ed at the southern end of Pleasant
Gap, but coupled with its selection are
the following provisions: That the
high power electric line be removed;
and that a road be opened to the Horn-
town side of the town without cost to
the school district. This lot will have
to be filled in about seven feet to meet
the road grade.
Site No. 2, is the present location
along the state highway. This site,
however, has been disapproved by G.
A. Stearns, of the State Department
of Public Instruction, because it is
along the main highway where the
lives of school children would be en-
dangered by the heavy traffic; also be-
cause it is in close proximity to a stone
quarry, mill and lime kilns, and be-
cause the school bus would of neces-
sity have to cross a narrow guage rail-
road track.
Site No. 3, is the Griffith place at
the north end of town, objected to by
some as it is considered too far for the
children living in the southern end of
town to walk and go home for lunch.
The fact was evidently not considered
that if the southern site is selected a
great many more children will have
just as far to walk. This site is con-
sidered the ideal location by many, as
it is in the centre of the school popu-
lation which will be affected by the
centralized project.
The board has decided upon a twelve
room, one-story brick structure, with a
combined auditorium and gymnasium
which can be inter-changed into a class
The board has selected as architects
for the new building Messrs. Hersh &
Sholar, of Altoona, who will draw a
commission of five per cent. on the
total cost of the building, which is es-
estimated at $60,000. The building is
to be ready for occupancy by Septem-
ber 1st, 1926. The architects have
already started work on the plans and
actual work on the building will be
under way in the near future.
Jury Awards Verdict of $4,250 in
Millheim Turnpike Case.
The jury in the case of the Mill-
heim Turnpike Co., vs. Centre coun-
ty, returned a verdict in the Centre
county court, last Friday, of $4,250,
which was more than double the sum
awarded the company by the jury in
condemnation proceedings. But the
rendering of the above verdict does
1 . .
inot mean the termination of the case
by any means. In the above case,
for instance, there is a mortgage
against the Millheim turnpike of $5,
500, which is just $1,250 more than
the verdict awarded by the jury. And
now the question comes up, what will
be the position of the mortgagee in re-
gard to the mortgage? If the county
commissioners should decide to sub-
mit to the verdict of the jury and
signify their willingness to pay the
above verdict; and should the mort-
gagee be paid the full amount of the
verdict, what rights would he have
to collect the balance of his mort-
Of course, there has been no action
taken along this line up to this time,
and there is no predicting what might
be done, but it is a technical legal
complication that is puzzling the
heads of some of the attorneys at the
Centre county bar.
In connection with the verdict of
$6,000 rendered in favor of the Brush
Valley, Nittany and Bald Eagle Turn-
pike company, it is understood that
an application will be made by the
county for a new trial, and the same
thing may be done in the case of the
Millheim turnpike.
Car and Truck go off Snow Shoe
Mountain Road
Milford Lucas, a brakeman on the
Snow Shoe railroad, lives at Mt.
Eagle and motors out to Snow Shoe
and back in his Ford car. On his way
out, early Monday morning, his car
skidded on the ice at the big fill above
Runville and went down over the side
of the mountain several hundred feet.
Fortunately Mr. Lucas escaped with-
out serious injury but his car was
badly wrecked.
Not long after the Lucas accident
Lloyd Smith, of Milesburg, came down
the mountain with a truck load of
furniture he was bringing to Belle-
fonte from Snow Shoe for a Mr. Wel-
ford, when his truck also skidded off
the road and went down over the side
of the mountain, just a short distance
above where the Lucas accident oe-
curred. Mr. Smith also escaped in-
jury but his truck was wrecked and
the furniture badly battered up.
On Tuesday evening the cars of
John F. Garthoff, of Bellefonte, and
postmaster George Glenn, of State
College, sideswiped on the state high-
way just south of the big cinder pile
beyond the Titan Metal company
plant. Both cars had to be towed into
town for repairs but none of the occu-
pants in either were hurt.

Accommodate Transient Guests.
The old Bush homestead, on south
Spring street, Bellefonte, purchased
last fall by Mrs. M. A. Landsy and be-
ing converted into an apartment house
and annex for the Brockerhoff house,
is fast nearing completion, so far as
the interior is concerned. In fact, by
the latter part of this week Mr. Land-
sy expects to have ten rooms complet-
ed and furnished in which to take care
of guests to whom he is unable to give
accommodations in the Brockerhoff
house. These rooms are located on
the second and third floors and are
complete in every detail. The rooms
are connecting and each two rooms
have a bath, but they are so arranged
that if used singly each room will
have hot and cold water. There will
be a telephone in each room, while
no details in the furnishing of the
room necessary for the comfort and
convenience of the guests has been
The entire first floor of the build-
ing has been converted into three
apartments. The one to the left of
the main entrance has been specially
arranged for Mr. and Mrs. Landsy’s
own use, but until they decide to oc-
cupy it will probably be given out to
parties who desire a suite for a month
or six weeks at a time. It consists of
a spacious living room, a bed room,
bath and kitchenette.
On the right side of the main en-
trance is located the largest apart-
ment. It consists of a living room,
kitchenette, two bed rooms and bath
In the rear is another apartment
which has already been rented by
John G. Love. It consists of a liv-
ing room, dining room and kitchenette
on the first floor, two bed rooms, a
bath room and sun parlor on the sec-
ond floor, and the use of a large porch
opening out from the sun parlor.
Each apartment will have its own
outside porch and private entrance
and so arranged that it can be
closed off entirely from the main en-
trance and hall way leading to the
rooms on the second and third floors.
Every sleeping room in the house is
equipped with a closet, and am-
ple closet space has also been made in
the apartments.
While the rooms on the second and
third floors will be ready for occu-
pancy this week the apartments will
not be ready before the first of April,
but Mr. Landsy hopes to have the
interior completed by that date. Of
course there will be a lot of exterior
work yet to do, as the entire outside
of the building will be painted and the
premises cleaned up and put in good
Mr. Landsy for the present will
call his building “The Annex,” and
as such it will be known in the fu-

Milton Fair Gives Up the Ghost.
With the statement that the Milton
Fair, an event looked forward to in
Central Pennsylvania for nearly 100
years, is dead, came the announce-
ment Saturday that the property will
be sold. Faced with the loss of their
grandstand last fall after several dis-
couraging years, the stockholders met
and decided to quit. The buildings
and other property will be offered at
public sale Saturday afternoon, March
Originally organized nearly 100
years ago, fairs were held intermit-
tently until 1856, when regular ex-
hibitions were given for a long time
by the Northumberland County Agri-
cultural Society, of which former Gov-
ernor James Pollock was one of the
founders. That was succeeded in 1885
by the Milton Driving Park and Fair
Association, which passed out in 1903.
Another organization carried on the
struggle until 1909. The present or-
ganization had its first fair in 1910.

Electric Service Rate on Rural Line
The local office of the Keystone Power
corporation has just been advised the
company has filed a rate for rural
consumers as outlined in the Public
Service Commission’s general order
on “Rural Line Extensions.”
This rate of the corporation is ap-
plicable to those consumers requesting
service under the commission’s special
rural line extension policy, as con-
tained in their general order No. 27.
The rate becomes effective April 1,
1926, as does the order of the Com-

{ The Brockerhoff “Annex” in Shape to Philadelphia Promoter Catches Several
| Bellefonte Investors.
{ Harrison M. Van Duyke, who is
head of the Philadelphia Hotel Cor-
i poration, an organization that was to
build a four million dollar hotel at
the corner of Broad and Locust Sts.,
in Philadelphia, is being sought by
postal authorities for having used the
mails to defraud hundreds of people
in New York and the western part of
The scheme was based on a plan to
buy the site designated and erect
thereon, “Philadelphia’s largest and
most sumptuous hotel, which the
Van Duyke stories pictured would pay
out in a short time because of the
rush of Sesqui-centennial visitors to
that city. Western Pennsylvania was
primed for riches in hotel stock, for
hadn’t a lot of her people taken fliers
in stock of the Hotel Pennsylvania, in
New York, which turned out to be a
veritable gold mine. In fact some local
buyers, who hadn’t any idea of what
they were buying and traded their
holdings for automobiles and other
things wakened up to discover that
when the “Hotel Pennsylvania” got go-
ing its stock became worth three or
four times as much as the local holders
had traded it in for.
This has been common knowledge
around Bellefonte for some time and
it, as we have said, abetted the in-
vesting appetite for hotel investments.
The Broad and Locust hotel might
have been a great investment prop-
osition, but it appears that Mr. Van
Duyke used the $175,000.00 he got
from investors for other purposes
i than buying the lot on which the
- hotel was to stand and he lost his op-
| tion on the lot. Now there’s no place
to build the hotel and the investors
and the Government wants to talk it
over with Mr. Van Duyke and he can’t
be found.
In the published list of subscribers
to the stock appears the names of W.
J. Emerick and Mrs. Maria Brewster
Thomas, of Bellefonte.

Opening Day at the New Nittany Shoe
The 17th of March will have an
added significance to the people of
this vicinity this year for it will mark
the opening day of the new Nittany
shoe store by Wilbur Baney in the
Bush Arcade. We use the word new
advisedly, for it is not a mere gesture
that Mr. Baney in making. The old
Yeager room has been entirely re-
modeled, decorated and furnished with
the most modern of retail shoe furni-
ture. And filled with a stock that is
just as new as the furniture.
The line of footwear for all classes,
men, women, and children, covers
every possible demand that might be
made, from the snappiest to the most
conservative models.
The store is arranged in depart-
ments: All the footwear for women
and girls on the one side with chairs
and accessories specially for their
use, while on the opposite is the men’s
and boy’s lines with furniture and
little comforts ecpecially appreciated
by the male patron. At the rear of
the store and separated from the main
sales room isthe underpriced depart-
ment where broken sizes and special
offerings will be shown.
Altogether the room is so complete-
ly modernized that it will appear as
an entirely new place in every respect,
except for the presence of Mr. Baney
whose long experience in the shoe
business in Bellefonte has made his
name and face almost synonymous for
the trade.
A visit to the new store on the
opening day will be quite worth your
while for there will be a great sur-
prise in store for you, beth in its at-
tractive appearance and in the quality
and style of the stock with which it
is being filled.

Joseph Wagner Home at Spring Mills
Destroyed by Fire.
Shortly after supper, last Saturday
evening, the Bellefonte fire depart-
ment received a call for assistance
from Spring Mills, where the home of
Joseph Wagner, a rural mail carrier,
was burning down and there was great
danger of the fire spreading to ad-
jacent properties. The Logan com-
pany, with pumper and squad wagon
made the run to that town in forty
minutes, but found the Wagner house
already beyond all efforts to save. The
house was located on the hill in the
rear of the old Spring Mills hotel, and
that building and a nearby barn were
probably saved from destruction by
the heroic work of a bucket brigade
before the pumper reached there. The
Logans, however, went into service
and prevented any possible spread of
the flames. .
Mr. Wagner saved most of his
house-hold goods from the first floor
of his home and some from the second.
He carried some insurance but not
enough to cover his loss. The fire
originated from sparks on the roof.

Rowland V. Lee, who directed
“Havoc,” the latest William Fox
special production, was selected for
the job because he was a veteran of
the world war and was considered es-
pecially versed in all the intricacies of
modern warfare. “Havoc” is a great
war drama, although it is not exclu-
sively devoted to the battle-fields. In
fact, most of the biggest moments in
the play are staged in a London night
club, where an unscrupulous woman
demonstrates her ability to play more
havec. with men’s souls than the
enemy’s guns can. “Havoc” will be
the attraction at the Moose theatre
this. Friday and Saturday. George
O’Brien and Madge Bellamy have the
leading roles. 11-1t
