rival in the home of Mr. and Mrs.
James Straub, at Cleveland, Ohio, on
‘Tuesday night. The young father is
the only son of Elmer C. Straub, of

grand-child he naturally feels some-
what elated .
——Some unknown individual, on
Sunday night, stole two spare tires
on demountauble rims from the auto-
mobile of Harry N. Meyer. The ma-
chine was standing on Spring street,
not over thirty feet from the Meyer
home, so that the robbery was a
pretty brazen piece of work. :
—The Watchman last week made
brief mention of a fire in the storage
department of the Federal Match

The fire started in one of the huge

If tired out by a hard day’s
work, sort of blue and out of sorts,
go to the Scenic and spend an hour
or two watching the motion pictures.
You'll forget your worries and trou-
bles in your interest in the splendid
programs presented each evening at
that up-to-date theatre. You won't
find any several years’ old, worn-out
pictures there, as every film is new
and up-to-date. Manager T. Clayton
Brown has made a study of what the
people of Bellefonte appreciate and
that is the kind of pictures he is show-

The village of Port Matilda,
which aspires to become a borough,
is at present one of the busiest places
in Centre county. During the month
of March eighty-seven carloads of
freight were shipped from the sta-
tion at that place, the principal pro-
- ducts being silica brick from the Me-
Feely Brick company’s plant, and
. mine props. The brick plant is now
running on full time and has orders
. on hand to keep it busy for months
-ahead. The new state highway
through Bald Eagle valley may have
something to do with the boom at
Port Matilda.
James R. Hughes, headmaster
of the Bellefonte Academy, has very
generously turned over to the Belle-
fonte High school entire control of the
cinder track on Hughes field for the
spring season. The track will be put
in good condition for track work by
the High school squad and the latter
wish to give notice that automobile
drivers must in the future keep off
the track. . Good arrangements will
be made for the parking of cars in
the field witheut crossing the track
and any person who does so deliber-
ately will be regarded as a trespasser
and be liable to prosecution.

Hugh M. Quigley Buys Fenlen Insur-
ance Agency.
Hugh M. Quigley preved to be the
successful bidder for the insurance
agency of the late Harry E. Fenlon,
his deal for the purchase of the same
having been closed last Thursday
afternoon. While the price paid has
not been made public it is believed to
have been between seven and eight
thousand dollars. Upwards of a dozen
men and one woman were bidders for
the business, which is reported to
have been one of the best in Belle-
fonte under Mr. Fenlon’s management.
Mr. Quigley is a clean-cut, deserving
young man and merits the support of
all former patrons of this old-estab-
lished agency.

Hospital Board Elects a Technician. |
At the monthly meeting of the
board of trustees of the Centre Coun-
ty hospital, on Tuesday evening, Miss
Kech, of Snow Shoe, but who received
her training in the Altoona general
hospital, was elected technician for
the institution and has already taken
charge of her work. The board also
decided to employ a dietitian.
Manager W. H. Brown made a re-
port for the month of March, the
first under his management, which
showed an increase in receipts and a
decrease in free patients. Mr. Brown
was also authorized to take charge of
the purchasing department, which in-
cludes buying of all supplies, etc., for
the hospital. i
The board made the gratifying an-
nouncement that various individuals
have assumed the responsibility of
furnishing and equipping five rooms
and the children’s ward. It will also
be recalled that Mrs. Winton, of
Scranton, left $5,000 to the hospital
in her will as a memorial to her son,
and the bequest comes to the hospital
at $4,500 net. The board decided to
use this money to equip the X-ray
laboratory. This will leave one room,
the porches and the maternity room
yet to furnish.
The hospital would like to possess a
female sheep for experimental pur-
poses and if any generously inclined
farmer will donate one to the institu-
tion it will be greatly appreciated.
The work of completing the new
wing is moving along satisfactorily
but the hospital management is handi-
capped to some extent by the lack of
funds. There is still considerable due
on the “Serve Centre Sick” drive, not-
withstanding the fact that the last
payments should have been made last
November, and if this were cleaned up
it would help out a lot. Because of
this fact the board is desirous that
those still in arrears make their pay-
ment at once.
Hospital Auxiliary Is Flourishing.
The regular monthly meeting of the
executive board of the women’s aux-
iliary of the Centre County hospital
was held in the W. C. T. U. rooms in
this place on March 29.
Representatives from State College,
Lemont and Unionville were present
and presented most interesting re-
ports as to the work their newly or-
ganized units are doing.
State College has to date a member-
ship of 190 and Lemont 14. The form-
er returned forty-five towels, hemmed
and ready for use and Unionville
made fifteen bed shirts and six sheets.
During the past month the follow-
ing auxiliaries have been formed with
their officers as given: :
Boalsburg, Mrs. James Irvin, Mrs.
William Hamm.

iary will hold a food sale at the Moit

ginning at 10 o'clock.

Telephone Demostration Proves Inter-
estimg Entertainment.
It is a pity that there were so few
people at the Moose theatre Monday
evening to get the glimpse behind the
secnes in a telephone exchange that
was staged there by the Bell Tele-
phone Co. Besides being highly in-
structive and calculated to give the
patron a more intimate understand:
ing of the service the company is try-
ing to give him it was decidedly
clever. 2
The phone repartee of the two
operatives, Miss Verna Rowe, of
Centre Hall, and Miss Bertha Salter,
of St. Mary’s, whe were at the demon-
stration switch-beard and—in imagi-
nation—trying to get parties for you
and me, was so true a reflex of just
what happens daily that it was real
comedy; so clever in fact that of it-
self it would make a good vaudeville
The whole demonstration was de-
signed to show the patron of the tele-
phone what difficulties crop up from
every angle in the effort to give
prompt and courteous service and how
he or she can co-operate. It was quite
worthwhile and, as we have said, it
was a pity that there were not more
there to see it. :

“The Masked Bride.” Mae Murray,
Francis X Bushman, Roy D’Arcy and

Scenic next Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Bellefonte Academy will
open the baseball season in Bellefonte
this ( Friday) afternoon with a game

see what the Academy’s team is going
to be like this year.
STOP IN BELLEFONTE. | —HKdward C. Beezer, of Philipsburg, was

The biggest airship that has ever
visited Bellefonte swooped down out |
of the air shortly before six o’clock |
last Saturday evening, landing on the
old aviation field on the Beaver farm. |
The ship was a bi-plane of the Si-
korsky type, equipped with two 400
horsepower Liberty motors. It has
a seventy-six foot wing-spread and
a speed of 125 miles an hour. The
ship had been chartered by the Cur-
lee Clothing company, of St. Louis,
Mo., and was being used as an ad-
vertising stunt to carry company
salesmen east as far as the State of
The ship has an enclosed car with
a capacity for sixteen passengers,
but carried only nine people on this
trip. These included the pilot, Capt.
R. Turner, a farmer army flier, two
mechanicians and six Curlee company
salesmen, namely: H. N. Franklin.
who was in charge of the crew; Geo.
T. Cavanaugh, C. . Z. Pedrick,
Harry E. Orput, James T. Wallace
and J. Marshall Campbell. They left
St. Louis on Friday morning and flew
to Dayton, Ohio, where they spent
the night. Saturday morning was
spent in covering Dayton and on leav-
ing there it was the intention to fly
to Middletown, Pa., for the night,
but the route was new to Capt. Turner
and he lost his bearings coming over
the mountains of Pennsylvania with
the result that he decided to land
Spotting the old aviation field, and
not knowing that the mail landing
field had been changed, he came down
there. The salesman left the ship at
that point and the pilot and mech-
anicians, on learning the location of
the new field, took to the air and sail-
ed. the big ship out to the present
landing field where it was kept for
the night. The entire party spent
the night at the Brockerhoff house,
leaving on Sunday morning for Mid-

one which was used not long ago in

six passengers from New York to
Annual Inspection Showed Troop B in
Fine Fettle.
Capt. Herbert Miller, the officers
and every member of Troop B, 52nd
machine gun battalion, of Bellefonte,
has every reason in the world to feel
puffed up over the compliment paid
them by the officers present at the
annual inspection on Tuesday even-
ing. The inspecting officers were
Capt. George Milholland, of Harris-
burg, representing the federal gov-
ernment, and Col. William Zerdt, of
Philadelphia, representing the Penn-
sylvania Nationdl Guard. After the
inspection they had no hesitation in
saying that the troop made the best
showing of any of the sixty-seven
units so far inspected and they be-
lieved is would rank close up to the
top in the entire Guard.
". The inspection was open to the pub- :
lic and between three and four hun-
dred spectators were present to see
the soldier boys put through their
paces. The Odd Fellows band was in
attendance and furnished music for
the drills. Following the regular
drill the gun squads gave an exhibi-
tion drill which was followed by a
sham battle on an unseen enemy.
Four machine guns were put in
service on the armory floor each gun
using up a belt of blank cartridges
while other guns concealed upstairs
belched forth fire through portholes.
It was a thrilling climax to the even-
ing’s werk.
It might be said in closing, without
any reflection upon Capt. Miller or
the other officers of the troop, that
considerable of the eredit for its good
standing is due to the untiring work
of Capt. John W. Weeks, the regular
army officer stationed in Bellefonte
as instructor for the entire battal-
Foster Famning Home Destroyed by
The Foster Fanning home on the
back road up Buffalo Run valley, just
above the school house, was entirely
destroyed by fire on Monday morning.
The Fannings live on what is known
as the old Blair farm and the house
was one of the old-time log buildings,
built over half a century ago. How
the fire originated is not known.
Christ Beezer was the first to discover
it. He was on his way to Bellefonte
from his home on Spring creek and
noticing the flames drove up to the
house. Mrs. Fanning was busy with
the morning’s wash and did not know
her house was afire until the arrival
of Mr. Beezer. Word was telephoned
to Bellefonte for assistance and the
Undine firemen went out with their
pumper but it was too far gone to
save, and the burning building was
too far from Spring creek, the only
available water supply, to enable the
firemen to do more than save the barn
by using their chemicals. Only a
small portion of the household goods
were saved. Mr. Fanning has some
insurance, but not sufficient to cover
the loss.
——Counsel for the opposition to
the incorporation of the village of

—Myr. Harvey D. Dunkle was up from
Hecla Park Tuesday looking after a little
business and was thoughtful enough to
drop in for a bit of a chat here. Besides,
he said he knew we would be wanting to
go fisking and he left some money, but
we dow't know what that was for; whether
it was to keep the plant geing while we
were away or to buy fish or bait. Certain-
ly it comddn’t have been the latter, for Mr.
Dunkle is a law-abiding eitizen and he
wouldn't have encouraged us to attempt to
buy either fish or bait.

—Included in the Watchman office. list
of callers on Wednesday was Irvin M.
Harvey, of State Cecllege, whose visits to
Bellefonte of late years are so rare that
he seemed almost a stranger. In fact he
confided to us that his principal excuse for
being in Bellefonte that day was the
bringing of the ladies of his household
down to attend a double wedding at the
Methodist parsonage, and after seeing the
affair to a finish he slipped out and wan-
dered around town greeting the many
friends he made thirty-five or forty years
ago when from his farm in Boggs town-
ship he served one of the best milk routes
in Bellefonte. Then he moved to State
College and it must be the asociation
with so many young people up there that
has a telling effect upon him because he
looks younger now than he did twenty
years age.

Community Supper and Bazaar at
Pine Grove Mills.
The women of Ferguson township
have assumed the care of the old
cemetery at Pine Grove Mills. In it
are lying the bodies of many of the
pioneers of that community, their
descendants so scattered that few are
left to care for the last resting place
of their forebears. All of the lots in
it are full and the new cemetery has
been in general use for years. The
old, through neglect, has become an
eyesore and a -diseredit, so that to
relieve the situation the women have
decided to take it in hand and on Fri-
day and Saturday, April 23 and 24,
they will hold a community supper
and bazaar as the first of a series of
efforts to raise funds with which to
clean up the burying ground. .
On Friday evening they will serv
roast chicken, waffles, mashed pota-
toes, relishes, fruit salad, cake and
coffee, all for 50cts.
On Saturday evening the same price
will prevail and the menu will be the
same, except that corn will be added.
In the Bazaar there will be bread,
cakes, pies, candy and fancy work.
The cause is a very worthy one and
inasmuch as the women of Ferguson
township are great cooks their supper
should prove a delightful "destination
for motor parties from all parts of
the county. a 3
