—— Between four and five o’clock,
on Monday morning, robbers broke
into the P. R. R. station at Howard
and attempted to blow the safe, but
their efforts proved fruitless and they
were evidently frightened away be-
fore they could get hold of anything
of value.
——On Sunday night some un-
known individual entered the James

——Kiyanis is going to go in a
body to root for the local Hi team
when it plays Lock Haven Hi, the
annual game on Thanksgiving day.
Members are now learning the Hi yells
and have engaged both Wetzler’s and
the I. 0. 0. F. bands to accompany
the crowd and help with the pep. Of
course Bellefonte is going to win this
year. The dope is all that way.
H. A. Hartling, of State Col-
lege, who has been doing such satis-
factory work on some of the trees of
Bellefonte during the summer, is con-

turkeys, last Saturday, but as there
was only one turkey in a crate there
were but fifteen of the birds, all told.
But they were fine, large turkeys and
would make a splendid appearance on
a Thanksgiving table. But they are
not for sale. They were furnished

——At noontime, on Monday,
George Williams, a negro prisoner at
the Rockview penitentiary, left the
prison grounds and invaded the or-
chard on the Green Heaton farm to
get some apples. Miss Annie Noll
spied him and going out with a double-
barreled shot gun ordered the man
from the premises. He made no effort
to leave and Miss Noll gave him the
contents of one barrel then went
closer and threatened to shoot again
if he didn’t leave. The man beat a
hesiy retreat and returning to the
prison reported at the hospital where
the prison physician picked forty-
eight small shot from the man’s body.
He is not seriously hurt, however.
Squirrels, Rabbits and Pheasants
Made Up the Game Bags.
The wet woodlands did not deter
hunters from taking advantage of the
opening day of the small game season,
on Monday, and the result was hun-
dreds of them went out to try their
luck. While the luck of some may
not have been what they anticipated,
others had enough success to justify
the assertion that small game is more
plentiful in the county this season
than it has been for several years, and
hunting was not very good on Mon-
day, at that, because of the rain-
soaked leaves and underbrush which
kept the game pretty much under
cover. From the following list of
lucky hunters, however, it will be seen
that there is still game in the woods
of Centre county:
Mrs. Harry Zimmerman, 2 squirrels.
Edward Dukeman, 6 squirrels.
Hugh Taylor Jr., 1 squirrel.
Charles Coder, 1 squirrel and 2 rab-
Robert Conder, 2 rabbits.
Jack Taylor, 1 rabbit.
George Tanner, 5 rabbits and 3
Joe Bauer, 1 squirrel, 5 rabbits and
3 pheasants. .
Vincent Bauer, 3 squirrel, 2 rabbits
and 1 pheasant.
Charles Long, 2 rabbits and a red
fox (a red fox pelt now is worth about
Charles Martin,
pheasant. :
Pete Lyons, 4 squirrels and 5 rab-
Richard Taylor,
ringneck pheasant.
Charles Williams, 6 squirrels.
Ben Beezer and Collins Shoemaker,
5 squirrels and 2 rabbits.
Charles Mong, 5 rabbits.
I. R. Baumgardner, 5 rabbits.
Robert Fry, 1 rabbit.
Paul McGarvey, 1 pheasant.
Harry Dukeman, 4 squirrels.
Harry Kelly, 1 squirrel and 1 pheas-
Earl Schreckengast, 5 rabbits and
3 pheasants.
Charles E. Gates, 1 rabbit.
Toner Aikey, 1 ringneck.
W. F. Lucas, Curt Taylor, Walter
and LeRoy Scull and Chas. Kellerman,
of this place, and Dean and Raymond
Koons, of Eagleville, comprised a
party that spent the morning hunting
near Fillmore and the afternoon along
Muncy mountain near Milesburg.
They bagged forty rabbits and three
Game must be plentiful up in Fer-
guson. township, according to the
Watchman’s Pine Grove Mills corres-
pondent, who writes that quite a num-
ber of hunters returned home by noon-
time, on Monday, with the limit of
rabbits and squirrels. Among the suc-
cessful ones mentioned were the Kep-
ler crowd, who brought home 22 rab-
bits, the Tate Crowd with 21 rab-
bits and a bunch of squirrel, Dr.
Krebs, who killed two rabbits with ore
shot, and Royal Kline, who bagged a
nice, fat ring-neck.
On Monday morning a number of
High school students of Ferguson
township enroute to State College
found a dead doe lying by the side of
the state highway at the Kepler faim.
The animal had evidently broken its
neck by running into a wire fence.
The carcass was taken to Pine Grove
Mills and turned over to game warden

Rumor Has the Bush House Biock
The announcement that M. B.
Runkle will move his drug store from
its present location in the Bush house
block to the room in the Arcade, form-
erly occupied by Finklestine’s pool
room, was made the fore part of the
week. The change will be made some
time this month.
Since the Bush house was built the
Runkle room has be2n occupied by a
drug store, so that the ending of what
has been almest a traditional business
stand in that location has given rise
to many rumors as to the cause of the
change. One has it that the building
is to be sold and that the purchaser’s
plans for remodeling it contemplate
throwing the Runkle room into the
lobby of the replanned hotel.
We know that T. S. Strawn, some
time ago, expressed a desire to own a
hotel property in Bellefonte. Not to
manage it himself, but to convert it
into a modern hostelry. In fact he
made an offer for the Bush house.
Whether this means that his proposal
is still under consideration and is like-
ly to go through we are not prepared
to say.
The Runkle room is said to be rent-
ed, temporarily, to a dry cleaning
business that will locate there after
his removal.

— Just 391 tickets were sold at
the Bellefonte depot for the four dol-
lar excursion to Philadelphia, on Sat-
urday night, to see the Sesqui. Tick-
ets were also sold at every station east
on the Bald Eagle Valley road to and
including Mill Hall, so that the special
train of nine coaches was well filled.
The weather in Philadelphia, on Sun-
day, was similar to that in Bellefonte
raining most of the time, and while
1t was not very pleasant the crowd
managed to take in most of the big
exposition. The return train reached
Bellefonte shortly after three o’clock
on Monday morning.
Lock Haven Lodge of Moose Raided
Friday Night.
Federal prohibition agents from the
western part of the State raided the
lodge of Moose, at Lock Haven, last
Friday night, and unearthed a regu-
lar wildcat brewery. They found
five 20-gallon and one 10-gallon vats
of beer in course of brewing; thirty
cases of brewed product, two and a
half barrels of real beer that was not
made at the plant, and a small quan-
tity of whiskey. The home brewed
beer ran about four per cent. alcohol.
All the stuff was confiscated and
Ira Nestterode, Ward Shank and
Peter Johnson placed under arrest.
Two of the men are officers of the
‘lodge and the other was acting bar-

All Bellefonte Children to Have Diph-
theria Immunization.
All Bellefonte children are to be
given the opportunity of being inocu-
lated against diphtheria. Arrange-
ments have been completed for giving
the treatment to those of school age
at the schools and children of pre-
school age will be immunized at the
well baby clinics, in Petriken hall on
Wednesday afternoons, November 10,
17 and 24.
It is not compulsory. Parents must
give their written consent before it
will be done in the schools and they
must voluntarily take their small
children to the well baby clinic to have
it done.
The treatment is practically pain-
less, leaves no bad effects and per-
manently protects the child against
that dread disease, diphtheria. Surely,
every parent should take advantage
of such an opportunity.

Picking Huckleberries in October.
John H. Jacobs, of Boalsburg, erst-
while school teacher who has prob-
ably played a cornet and paraded with
more loeal bands than any other
musician in Centre county, got hun-
gry for huckleberry pie the other day
and what do you suppose happened.
John didn’t want pie made from
canned huckleberries. He wanted a
pie baked with berries fresh from the
bush and wheever heard of fresh huck-
leberries om October 25? Few ever
heard of such an abnormality, but
Joh. knows that strange things hap-
pen these days, so with a four quart
bucket on his arm he hied away to
Tussey mountains and in a very short
time had the pail filled with luscious,
big berries and came home with the
“makins” of fresh huckleberry pie in
That’s something to remember when
Cash Burned when Home was De-
stroyed by Fire.
The frame dwelling house owned
and occupied by Harry Janet and fam-
ily, a mile and a half west of Snow
Shoe Intersection, in Bald Eagle val-
ley, was entirely destroyed by fire
about four o’clock last Saturday morn-
ing, and with the house went practic-
ally all the furniture and $83.00 in
cash which Mr. Janet had placed un-
der his bed pillow for safe keeping
and forgot it until it was too late to
save the money.
The entire family was asleep when
the house caught fire on the attic,
presumably from a defective flue.
They were awakened by the stifling
smoke and had barely time to put on
some clothing and make their escape
from the burning building. Neighbors
formed a bucket brigade and made an
attempt to fight the flames but it
proved a fruitless effort. The only
things saved were a few pieces of
kitchen furniture. The house and con-
tents were mostly covered by insur-

What’s Going to Happen to the Potato
| Crop? ,
i Several weeks ago the potato spec-
‘jalist of Pennsylvania State College,
| Mr, E. L. Nixon, spread broad cast
the fact that several farmers in Fer-
guson township had graduated into
the 400 bushels an acre class as potato
growers this year. In fact one farm-
er’s yield was placed at 510 bushels
an acre. From various parts of the
State records have been sent to the
College of 400 bushels to the acre and
from that up to over 600. :
Out in Illinois and Minnesota and
up in Maine shipments have exceeded
those of last .year by hundreds of car-
loads, and yet the price this year is
higher than it has been any fall in
many years. Hereabouts the tubers
are retailing at $1.80 a bushel, and
the cheapest they have been at any
time this fall is $1.50. Of course this
is good for the potato grower but it
seems like a stiff price to those who
have to buy them.
Up to this time very few farmers
in Centre county have raised their en-
tire crop, and it is probably the fear
of potato rot because of so much wet
weather that is keeping the price up.
Some of the small growers have their
crop out of the ground and found no
unusual number of rotting or spotted
ones. Others assert that they have
found quite a number with brown
spots on them, although they have
not yet started to rot. But if the
i rainy weather continues it is highly
| probable that some of the potatoes
will rot in the ground, although even
i then, there should not be any pro-
' nounced shortage in the tuber crop.

Scenic Management Boosts Local High
School Athletics.
In giving the proceeds of one of the
best drawing pictures on the screen
to the Bellefonte High school athletic
association T. Clayton Brown, lessee
of the Scenic and Moose theatres, has
shown a spirit of liberality that is
certainly to be commended. J
The Hi athletic association is not
self supporting by long odds. About
the only time it makes a drive for
publie aid is when its “Red and Blue”
contest is staged each fall. It is now
considerably in debt and Mr. Brown’s
action is both timely and acceptable.
“The Quarterback” will have its
last showing at the Moose tonight and
if you want to see a good picture and
at the same time help the Hi boys a bit
you should go.
State College Girls Have Nine Rifle
Rifle shooting is the only sport the
Penn State women students engage in
intercollegiate competition and for the
past several years the co-ed sharp-
shooters have been establishing a
most enviable record by their victor-
ies over the girls of other institutions.
A schedule of nine matches is being
arranged for this year. Girls who
make the rifle team are awarded five
points toward the varsity letter grant-
ed by the women’s athletic associa-
tion. It is also proposed to recognize
their success in intercollegiate com-
petition by the award of some special

always find a big program of motion
pictures which cannot help but enter-
tain and amuse you. And bear in mind
the fact that it is only the regulars
who see all the good ones.

Haupt, and Anna LaRue Aikey, a

Cumberland, Md., last Friday. They

Scenic Attractions for the Week.
The following is the greatest line
of pictures ever offered the theatre
going public for any week, and as our
slogan says, “Presenting the better
class photoplays,” we are proud to an-
nounce the following:
Friday and Saturday—“The Show-
off,” Ford Sterling, Lois Wilson and
Louise Brocks, a comedy natural just
as sure as you're born.
Monday and Tuesday—“The Ama-
teur Gentleman,” with none other than
Richard Barthelmess and Dorothy
Dunbar. It’s a First National show
and it’s a hummer.
Wednesday and Thursday—“La
Boheme,” with 10 big stars headed by
John Gilbert and Lillian Gish. One of
the year’s few big super special film
hits. Great entertainment.
Friday and Saturday—“The Eagle
of the Sea,” with Florence Vidor and
Ricardo Cortez. A Paramount picture
as only Frank Lloyd can make, for he
made the “Sea Hawk.” These pictures
are all new, right out of the can and
the kind that the theatre patrons like
to see. And don’t forget there are
some great ones in the making which
we will run right on release foryou.
