——The weather man must have
been off on a vacation last week and

week as Bellefenters have experienced

that fell was not sufficient to mater-

But it was good to see a clear sky ,
and the sun shining bright again on!

pleasure of a shot at one of them, in
the event they should run across any.
This case grows out of the sale of an
undivided one-third interest by J. P.
Sebring in two tracts of land situate
in Halfmoon and Taylor townships, to
the defendants, sometime in 1920, and
the leasing by the said Sebring to the
defendants of the undivided two-
third’s interest in the same two tracts
of land for a royalty of two third’s of
five cents per gross ton for ganister
rock removed from the premises, The
defendant alleged by its testimony
that the purchase and lease were made
subsequent to the lines having been
pointed out by Mr. Sebring’s repre-
sentative, and after the first two pay-
'ments on the purchase and the first
payment on minimum royalty the de-
-fendant discovered that a part of the
land it thought it had purchased did
not belong to them but to another,
when the defendant repudiated the
contract, and this suit was brought
to recover the balance of the purchase
price and royalty due up to the date
of the bringing of the suit. The case
went to trial on Tuesday morning and
was not completed until late Wednes-
day afternoon, going to the jury at
!3.45 o'clock. The jury yesterday
morning returned a verdict in favor of
the defendant.

Bees Carry Back Their Honey.
The busy little bee has always been
held up as an example for man to
emulate, and if the story that comes
from Harris township is true there is
a colony on the farm of John H. Horn-
er, near Boalsburg, that must have
worked overtime recently. As told in
the Watchman some time ago, this
has not been a good year for honey
because the nectar in the blossoms
was deficient in sugar and because of
this fact no early honey was removed
from the hives. :
Ten days or two weeks ago Mr.
Horner removed two “supers” from
one of his hives, each containing 24
pounds of honey. He stored the
honey in an out building to season but
did not take the time to smoke off the
few bees clinging to the combs. The
building in which the honey was
stored had cracks in the weather
boarding and other small openings.
' Two days after placing the honey in
, the building Mr. Horner went to get
some of it and was amazed to find it
| all gone. The frames were just where
he had placed them but no honey was
in evidence. After puzzling over the
strange disappearance for some min-
utes Mr. Horner went to the hive to
investigate and was more astonished
than ever to discover that the bees
had carried the honey back to the
hive and stored it in the new frames
he had put in when he removed the

Harry P. Austin, the Republican
member of the Board of Commission-
‘ers of Centre county, died in the hos-
pital here yesterday morning at 11:35.
He had just returned from the State
conference of County Commissioners
held in Philadelphia last week, when
he was stricken with appendicitis.
, Monday afternoon he was taken to the
Centre County hospital and operated
on late that night. The operation re-
vealed that the appendix had already
sluffed off and the liberated pus
caused peritonitis to develop which
caused his death.
Deceased was born in Huntingdon
county fifty seven years ago and was
the son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. W. Aus-
tin. When but a boy the family
moved to Howard this county and
later to Milesburg, where both father
and son were employed in the McCoy
and Linn iron works. Later he en-
tered the employ of the late A. G.
Morris and worked in the lime indus-
try until he was elected County Com-
missioner, in 1919. In 1923 he was re-
elected to the Board and was serving
his second term when he died.
Mr. Austin is survived by his wife,
who was Miss Mollie Smith, of Miles-
burg, and two daughters: Miss Mabel
at home and Miss Catherine, in Al-
toona. :
Arrangements had not been made
for the funeral when this edition went
