Elwood Resides, a’ former resident
of Unionville but of late living near
Mill Hall, died in the Lock Haven hos-
pital on Tuesday afternoon as the re-
sult of a fractured skull sustained at
noontime the same day when he was
struck by a motor truck driven by
Clifford Fortney, of Mackeyville.
Resides was one of a gang of men
cleaning up the ruins of the recently
burned axe plant, at Mill Hall, and
while at work a passing motorist
stopped to inquire the way to Belle-
fonte. Resides stepped to the side of
the car to give the man the desired
information, and when the motorist
started his car stepped back right in
front of the truck driven by Mr.
Fortney. He was quickly taken to the
Lock Haven hospital but died at 3.20
He was a son of Calvin M. and
Samantha Resides and was born in
Union township forty years ago. The
greater part of his life was spent
there. His survivors include his wife
and two daughters, Samantha and
Elsie; also his mother, living at
Unionville, and the following brothers
and sisters: Norman Resides, of
Swatara; LeRoy, of Bellefonte; Owen,
William, Miles, Sarah, Rachel, Mary
and Naomi, at home.
He was a member of the Church of
Christ and Rev. J. W. Tyndall will
have charge of the funeral services
which will be held tomorrow afternoon
at one o’clock, the remains to be taken
to Unionville for burial.
Frank Cunningham, a member of
the Snow Shoe High school football
team, is in the Centre County hospital
with two fractures of the lower jaw,
torn muscles in one of his legs and a
number of cuts and bruises as the re-
sult of an automobile accident on the
curve at McCoy’s works on Saturday
evening. Cunningham and ‘Harry
Sickle were in Milesburg on their way
to Bellefonte when James Swartz, an
employee at the Bellefonte freight
station, came along in a Ford run-
about. The boys signaled for a ride
and Swartz stopped. As the latter
had a young woman with him there
was not room for the boys in the Ford
so they asked permission to ride on
the running board and it was granted.
At a point on the curve at McCoys
works the Swartz car had a side-
swipe collision with a Dodge car
driven by Claude Irvin, of Snow Shoe,
Cunningham being caught between
the cars. Mr. Swartz sustained sev-
eral cuts and lacerations and Mr.
Irvin, the driver of the Dodge, also
sustained several cuts and bruises. He
also was brought to the hospital to
have his injuries dressed, then left
for home. None of the other occu-
pants of the cars were injured out-
side a little shaking up.
On Monday morning William Hall,
of Johnstown, driving the new Chev-
rolet landau of his grand-father, R. C.
Hall, also of Johnstown, was driving
from Milesburg proper over to Central
City to get some grapes before leav-
ing for home and drove right into the
passenger train west as it was going
down from Bellefonte to the Miles-
burg station.
against the train was terrific and
completely demolished the automobile.
The wreck was carried to the side of
the road and young Hall thrown out,
landing in a pool of water at the foot
of the embankment. His only injuries
consisted of a cut on his right arm, a
few bruises and slight lacerations, but
he was able to return to his home in
Johnstown on the Pennsylvania-Le-
high the same afternoon. The car
had been driven less than two hundred
miles and there is hardly enough left
of it to repair.
On Sunday Jobin Confer, of Snow
Shoe, sent a man to Cleveland to drive
in a new Chrysler car. He got along
all right until he reached upper Bald
Eagle valley, on Monday morning,
when he fell asleep at the wheel, with
the result that he ran into the concrete
abutment of a bridge this side The
Triangle. The man was not injured
but the right front wheel of the car
was smashed and it was otherwise
Nittany Council Master Masons Cele-
brates Third Anniversary.
Members of Nittany Council Royal
and Select Master Masons celebrated
the third anniversary of the institu-
tion of the order, in Masonic temple,
Bellefonte, last Thursday evening, a
number of the grand council of Penn-
sylvania officers being present. Visi-

The Watchman Will Publish the Biog-
raphy of Dr. Lawrence M. Colfelt.
Some of our readers, we know, stil
treasure memories of the brilliant ser-
mons preached in the Presbyterian
church by Dr. Lawrence M. Col-
felt. At State College, also, there are
doubtless many who recall the years
when the eminent divine was the Col-
lege chaplain.
Dr. Colfelt was pastor of the Broad
and Oxford Sts. Presbyterian church in
Philadelphia for many years and, with
Russell H. Conwell, and Dr. Floyd
Thompkins, ranked among the great
preachers of the country. His church
work brought him into contact with
the social and political as well as the
religious life of the State and since
his retirement to his old home in Bed-
ford county he has been writing his
Anything that Dr. Colfelt would
write would be interesting to every-
one; especially so to those of this com-
munity who knew him. His biogra-
phy will necessarily tie in with in-
timate stories of many Centre coun-
tians and for that reason we have
asked and been granted the privilege
of publishing it.
The first installment will appear in
our issue of November 5th. Look for
it, because we believe you are about
to be offered a rare literary and his-
torical treat.

Centre County Bankers Hold Annual
The first annual meeting of the
Centre County Bankers’ association
was held in the court house, Belle-

which time the following officers were
elected for the ensuing year:
President, David F. Kapp, cashier
of . the First National bank of State
College; first vice president, G. W.
Barnes, cashier of the First National

Monday, November 8th, of ‘the nuin-
ber of representatives that will at-

Not the Same Stores.
We have been informed that there
is confusion in the minds of some per-
sons as to Yeager’s Tiny Boot Shop
and the Nittany Shoe Store. One is
located near the Diamond, next door
to the Elks club, the other occupies
the former Yeager store room in the
They are separate and distinct busi-
ness enterprises, have no connection,
whatever, one with another. Mr. Yea-
ger, since retiring from his former
location in the Arcade, has had only
one business place and that is his Tiny
Boot Shop on the Diamond.
The Nittany Shoe Store is the name
of the business located in the former
Yeager room in the Arcade. It is
managed by Mr. Wilbur Baney, who
was so long employed by Mr. Yeager
and it is just possible that this associa-
tion may be responsible for part of the
failure to understand that the stores
are not only differently located, but
differently owned, as well.
Waring’s Pennsylvanians to Play at
State College Next Week.
Waring’s Pennsylvanians need no
introduction to most of the Watch-
man’s readers. Many have heard this
successful organization of clever
musicians in concert and others have
heard the popular records they have
been making for the Victor Co. It
is probably not an exaggeration to say
that Waring’s Pennsylvanians are
rated with Paul Whiteman’s orchestra
by lovers of jazz and the modernists
idea of interpretation of the classics.
They will be at State College for
concerts in the Cathaum theatre Mon-
day, Tuesday and Wednesday of next
week. Their appearance at the Cath-
aum will be an added attraction to the
regular film programs for the even-
ings, which are detailed in the adver-
tising columns of this issue.

——Clarence R. Kramer may not
be able to meet and greet all the
voters of the Twenty-third district
personally between now and election.
He is busy in the courts in his home
town of Clearfield and next week and
week after will be in attendance at
the sitting of the Superior Court, look-
ing after the interests of clients.
Every voter can rest assured Mr.
Kramer is everything a good citizen
should be. He is clean, competent,
honest and intellectually the peer of
any man who has aspired to the great
office of Member of Congress in a gen-
eration. Every citizen who knows
Clarence R. Kramer can vouch for
these specifications. He will represent
the district capably, honorably and in-
42-it [ telligently at all times.
Chief of Police Harry Dukeman Cap-
tured Youthful Robbers.
Last Thursday morning chief cof
police Harry Dukeman was called to
the Blackford restaurant, on Bishop
street, to arrest two boys who had
made an unsuccessful attempt to rob
the cash register. When he got there
both lads had left the restaurant but
he caught one of them up near Logan
street and the other one on High
street, near the Watchman office.
After the boys were taken into cus-
tody they confessed to being Bernard
Breslin, 13 years old, and Herbert
Sare, 15, of Altoona, pupils of the
Roosevelt Junior High school of that
city, who had been out on a trip of
robbery and sight-seeing. Altoona
officers were communicated with and
they came to Bellefonte and took the
boys back to that city on Thursday
According to the Altoona police a
number of robberies had occurred in
*that city recently and attention was
attracted to the boys two weeks ago
when a roll of bills was found in
Sare’s locker at the Roosevelt school.
On Monday morning of last week
neither of the boys showed up at
school and since their arrest they told
that on that morning they boarded a
train in Altoona and went to New
York City. They spent a few hours
there taking in the sights then return-
ed by train to Harrisburg. They were
in the capital city only about three
hours when they boarded a train for
Lock Haven. At that place they rob-
bed a wholesale grocery store, getting
about forty dollars in cash. They
then came to Bellefonte and before
invading the Blackford restaurant
had gone to the rear of the Bush Ar-
cade, climbed up on the roof and were
examining the skylights when they
were detected and frightened away.
It was then that they went to the
Blackford restaurant and made an at-
tempt to replenish their stock of
cash, which led to their arrest by chief

Half Moon Gardens Building for Good
On the occasion of a recent visit to
the Half Moon Gardens in this place
we were more than surprised at what
the owner, Mr. Charles Tabel, has ac-
complished by way of getting green
houses erected and flowers and shrub-
bery ready for the market.
It was only a bit more than four
months ago that he decided to locate
in this place. Then the problem was
to find ground with a suitable ex-
posure and drainage for the location
of buildings and the cultivation of out-
side gardens. Already he has one
large green house erected and filled
with plants of every variety. The
‘heating system is being installed now.
Hundreds of carnations are in bloom
in it and beside them are other flower-
ing plants to be forced on for the win-
ter market.
Outside Mr. Tabel has large gardens
of perennials set out and growing so
healthy that we marveled at how it
could be done in such a short time and
on soil that had to be made. They say
that “anything he touches grows” and
it must be so for we saw thousands of
rose cuttings, the tiniest little things,
vet so perky that we shall not be sur-
prised if every one of them isn’t
sporting a gorgeous bloom by Christ-
Really, if you are interested i in flow-
ers and plants, a visit to the Half
Moon Gardens would be worth while.
They are located on the western end
of Half Moon hill and can be reached
by motor. Of course, they are only
in course of development now but far
enough along to show what an under-
taking of this kind might become in
the community if it meets with the
proper encouragement.
Altoona Shriners to Give Exhibition
Drill in Bellefonte.
On Wednesday morning of next
week Jaffa Temple Nobles of the
Mystic Shrine, of Altoona, will go to
Lock Haven for the purpose of hold-
ing a ceremonial session. They will
travel in a special train which is
scheduled to reach Bellefonte at 10:20
o'clock. As quite a number of Belie-
fonts people are members of the Tem-
ple a half hour stop will be made here
and during that time, weather permit-
ing, the drill corps of the Temple and
its band of seventy pieces will disem-
bark, give a street parade to the Dia-
mond where an exhibition drill will he
given There will also be a drum corps
of thirty pieces and a body of chanters,
a vocal musical organization. All will
be in full regalia. Centre county
members will join the Altoona delega-
tion for the trip to Lock Haven.
The ceremonial there will be for the
induction of a class of about seventy-
five applicants, residents of Centre
and Clinton counties, into the order.
The sessions in Lock Haven will be
held in the Garden theatre and the
churches of that city are planning to
banquet eighteen hundred Shriners.
The Imperial Potentate of the
United States, David Crossland, of
Atlanta, Georgia, will be in the party
and will lead the parade in Bellefonte
in an open automobile. As the parade
and drill will naturally attract quite
a crowd an effort will be made to keep
the Diamond clear of automobiles dur-
ing the brief time the Shriners will be
in Bellefonte.

Six Barns Burned at Rebersburg Last
Friday Morning.
Residents of Rebersburg, that thriv-
ing little town down Brush valley, had
a genuine fire scare, last Friday morn-
ing. About 7:30 o’clock the barn of
Wilbur Brungard, which he also used
as a garage, was discovered to be on
fire and before any steps could be tak-
en to fight the fire it was a mass of
flames. A fairly high wind was blow-
ing at the time and the fire spread
both east and west.
The Millheim hose company report-
ed to a call for assistance but when
they got on the ground they could give
no adequate assistance as the water
pressure in the fireplugs was not suf-
ficient to throw the water any dis-
tance. In the meantime a call for aid
had been sent to Bellefonte and the
Undine pumper made a good run to
Rebersburg and got into action in
time to save one or more properties
in grave danger of catching fire and
also extinguish the ruins.
All told six barns were totally des-
troyed. They were those of Mr. Brun-
gard, where the fire originiated, two
belonging to William Haines, one of
the properties being occupied by Ox-
vis Swartz. The barn on the Mrs.
Noah Korman property, one owned by
Lee Kidder and the large farm barn
of Fred Fehl, which contained all his
summer’s crops of wheat, oats and
hay. Most of the outbuildings were
saved as they were rolled away from
the barns in time to prevent their
catching fire.
One or more of the parties lost a
few chickens while all the barns con-
tained tools and implements which
burned. The total loss is placed at
from ten to fifteen thousand dollars,
upon which there is some insurance.

Democrats of the County Getting Set
for Action.
An encouraging and hopeful meet-
ing of some of the representative
Democrats of the county was held in
this place, Wednesday evening. Prac-
tically every section of the county
was represented.
County chairman W. D. Zerby. pre-
sided and Senator William I Betts and
Representative-to-be Andrew Curtin
Thompson charged the atmosphere
with enthusiasm in ringing speeches.
These were followed by a general dis-
cussion of the most effective manner
in which to carry on during the clos-
ing days of the campaign.
It was the general opinion that Cen-
tre county is ready to rebuke political
debauchery and million dollar slush
funds to corrupt the ballot. All that
is needed is to get the Democrats to
the polls to help those Republicans
who are with us to the finish in the
fight against the prostitution of their
party to the selfishness of a little
group of machine politicians.
William H. Noll Esq., of Ploasant
Gap; Dr. F. K. White, of Philipsburg;
Charles Foster, of State College;
Edw. Jamison, of Spring Mills; A. E.
Mingle, of Coburn; S. H. Hoy, G.
Oscar Gray and Geo. R. Meek, of
Bellefonte, were among those who ad-
dressed the meeting on the matter
under discussion.
It was the consensus of opinion that
if the Democratic vote is at the polls
on November 2, Centre county will be
found among the others of the State
that will register a protest against
the plan of a Philadelphia boss to
