Trout fishermen are not fur-
nishing much copy for the newspaper
writers these days. Of course we
realize that the weather has been
somewhat against making successful
eatches, then again it may be that
modesty prevents the successful fish-
erman from bragging about anything
that he dces get. So far, however,
we have failed to hear of anything
worth bragging about.
——Now that the Academy min-
strels delighted a large audience last

tended by twenty-eight members of
the nurses alumni association.
——Just because ground has been
broken for another motion picture
theatre in Bellefonte is no excuse for
not going to the Scenic to see the
movies shown there. A dozen new
theatres would not make any change
in the Scenic program. Manager T.
Clayton Brown has the distributor of
all the best producers under contract
and their pictures are furnished to
only one theatre in towns the size of
Bellefonte, so that to see the best pic-
tures the Scenic is the place to go.
Foot-misery is about the most
annoying of the minor troubles that
we are heir to. It is caused by many
things, but most common is in-grown
nails. Countless people suffer with
them needlessly, for right here in
Bellefonte there is manufactured a
simple little remedy, called “No-Gro-
In,” that rarely fails to correct the
trouble without the slightest pain. I¢
you can’t get it from your local drug-
gist, or shoe dealer send fifty cents to
W. H. Garman, Bellefonte, and a
package will be mailed to you.
Volstead Law Violators Predominate
in Cases Disposed of.
The regular May session of court
convened on Monday morning with
the Hon. James C. Furst on the bench
and the various court officers in their
usual places.
This court was somewhat different
from courts held heretofore by rea-
son of the grand jury having met
Monday of last week and passed on
all the bills of indictment submitted
to it by the district attorney.
On Monday morning, after hearing
a few motions and petitions, the
court went over the list of civil cases
for trial next week and all on the
list were marked for trial. This is
unusual, as there always are continu-
ances and settlements, but every case
on next week’s list is marked for
The first criminal case that came
up for trial on Monday forenoon was
that of the Commonwealth vs. Floyd
Johnstonbaugh. Prosecutor, A. C.
Rockey. Indicted for adultery. The
testimony in this case was short.
After the second witness for the Com-
monwealth had testified the defendant
changed his plea from that of not
guilty to that of guilty, and was
sentenced to pay the costs of prosecu-
tion, $250 fine and six months in the
county jail.
Commonwealth vs.
Prosecutrix, Agnes Cole. Charged
with a statutory offense. The defend-
ant plead guilty and the usual sen-
tence was imposed.
Commonwealth vs: John Kisinsky.
Indicted for violation of the liquor
laws. Prosecutor, J. C. Wedekind.
This case was from Rush township
and grows out of the same transac-
tion which resulted in Alexander
Roach being sentenced to the peni-
tentiary sometime ago on a shooting
affray. The defendant is a foreigner,
does not understand a word of Eng-
lish but related that he was not the
maker of the liquor but that it was
made by Mr. Roach while he stayed
at his place, which was largely ac-
quiesced in by the prosecutor. The
defendant plead guilty and the court
suspended sentence upon payment of
costs and gave the defendant six
months in which to settle.
Commonwealth vs. Burton Tooey.
Charged with assault and battery and
threats. Prosecutrix, Florence Tooey.
This case was from South Philips-
burg, and was an action brought by
the wife against the husband for an
assault committed upon her. It was
tried on Monday afternoon and re-
sulted in a verdict of not guilty, but
the defendant to pay two-thirds of
the costs and the prosecutrix one-
Commonwealth vs. B. H. Savercool.
This case was from State College and
two cases were tried at one time. The
indictment in one case was for oper-
ating a motor vehicle while under the
influence of liquor. The other indict-
ment had two counts, one for posses-
sion of liquor and one for transport-
ing liquor. Prosecutor, A. E. Yougel
in both cases. The testimony on the
part of the Commonwealth averred
that complaint was made to chief of
police Yougel that the defendant was
operating a motor vehicle under the
influence of liquor north of the bor-
ough of State College. That the chief
wént out with a friend in a taxi,
found: the defendant in his automo-
bile with a passenger, that he ordered
him out of his car into the taxi and
had his friend drive the defendant’s
automobile. That he took the defend-
ant to the office of a physician at
State College who pronounced him
under the influence of liquor, where-
upon the prosecutor lodged him in
prison and preferred ‘the charge.
That upon examination of the defend-
ant’s automobile after it had been
taken into State College borough he
‘found a jar containing moonshine
whiskey. The defendant and his wit-
nesses averred that he and his pas-
senger had been to Bellefonte, and
his passenger had become consider-
ably under the influence of liquor and
he was trying to induce him to start
home and that he took two small
swallows of whiskey from the jar to
get his passenger to start home to
State College. - That the passenger
put the quart jar in his coat pocket
and that the defendant did not see it
thereafter and that the whiskey had
not been in the car before he was
taken out of it and that he, the de-
fendant, was not under the influence
of liquor. The passenger admitted
that he, the passenger, was very
much under the influence of liquor
and that he did not know anything
about the condition of the defendant.
The gentleman who drove the defend-
ant’s automobile to State College had
noticed nothing particular about the
defendant nor had he noticed any
liquor in the car. The case was submit-
ted to the jury on Monday evening and
on Tuesday morning they rendered a
verdict of guilty on a charge of oper-
ating an automobile while under the
influence of liquor, and not guilty on
the other charge but to pay the costs,
Victor Devlin.
sentence the court called the attention
of defendant’s counsel to the fact that
the verdict in operating the motor
vehiclz contained the statement that
he was also guilty of possessing liquor
the counts in the other indictment.
Counsel for the defendant took the
position that the verdicts were ille-
gally rendered, the jury had been
allowed to separate and the verdict
could not now be properly corrected
{and appended to the proper charge
but when the defendant was called for
' and moved the court to set aside the
verdicts and grant a new trial, which |
was forthwith granted and the de-
fendant ordered to enter into bail.
Commonwealth vs. George Mec-
.I Closkey. Prosecutor N. R. Lamare-
{ atx, chief of police of Philipsburg.
(Indicted for assault and battery with
{intent to commit a statutory crime.
The defendant plead guilty, and after
some discussion sentence was sus-
pended upon payment of costs, and
the: defendant given three months in
which to pay.
Commonwealth vs. Sam Cartwright
and Dolly Hendershot. Indicted for
breaking, entering and larceny, pros-
ecutor, Ernest Vinton. This case
was from Rush township. The prose-
cutor is the owner of a farm which he
occupied during the summer by him-
self and family and is away during
the winter season. That he found
people had occupied this house, used
| up the beds and ate food that was left
at the house. That he subsequently
learned that these defendants were
the occupants. This case went on
trial Tuesday forenoon and shortly
| before noon a verdict was rendered of
not guilty.
Commonwealth vs. Marcella Beals.
| Indicted, first count, possession of
, liquor for beverage purposes. Second
count, selling liquor. The testimony
lon the part of the Commonwealth
, Showed that Thomas A. Buckley, a
i member of the state police, had visit-
ed the home of the defendant at
Julian on April 2nd, at about 11.30 a.
.m., and alleged that he bought two
i gallons of whiskey from her. That
he took the whiskey to Lock Haven,
a sub-station, where he labelled it and
i locked it in his trunk and subsequent-
ly delivered it to the chemist at
Bellefonte, the whiskey being in four
different containers. The defendant
strenuously denied the sale, stating
that she had never seen Buckley until
at the time of the hearing before the
Squire, and produced her book in
which she kept the time of the men
who were working for her in making
repairs about the premises, which
showed that on the second day of
April at 11.30 they ate dinner with
these working men and one of them
was produced who swore that he did
not see Mr. Buckley and that no one
had calied at the defendant’s home,
The defendant also produced her
daughter and her son:in-law “who
swore that they were at the home of
i the defendant on Sunday, the 3rd of
[4 and that Mr: Buckley was not
| there on that day as he claimed to
have been as they were there about
noon. The case went to the jury on
Tuesday afternoon and resulted in a
verdict of not guilty.
Commonwealth vs. Daniel Straw,
prosecutor, Corporal Davis, located at
the sub-station at Lock Haven. This
man was indicted on two counts, one
for selling to Thomas A. Buckley two
quarts of whiskey and subsequently
when the premises of the defendant
were raided a ten-gallon keg of moon-
shine whiskey was found. The de-
fendant is a man 67 years of age and
entered a plea of guilty on beth in-
dictments. Sentence was suspended
on the indictment for the purchase of
the ten-gallons of whiskey upon pay-
ment of costs but Straw was sen-
tenced on the other indictment to pay
the costs of prosecution, a fine of
$150 and three months in the county
Commonwealth vs. Howard Walk.

prosecutor, Albert Davis. The case
was tried on Tuesday afternoon and
a verdict was rendered of guilty as

auor law, prosecutor Albert Davis,

ed with having sold liquor to one
Thomas Buckley, a state policeman.
She plead guilty and was sentenced
to pay the costs of prosecution, $150
fine and three months in the county
jail, but the prison sentence was post-
poned on condition that the costs will
be paid forthwith.
Commonwealth vs. Mary Liner. In-
dicted on two accounts, possession
and sale of whiskey. This case was
likewise from Taylor township, and
while there was considerable contro-
versy over dates, ete., defendant was
finally convicted of possession and
was sentenced to pay a fine of $100,
costs and spend thirty days in the
county jail.
Commonwealth vs. Harold Stanton,
violation of the liquor laws. Defend- '
ant plead guilty and was sentenced to
pay a fine of $150, costs and three
months in jail.
Three other liquor cases are yet to
be heard as well as the case of invol-
untary manslaughter against Jim

an auto accident at Rock Springs sev-
eral weeks ago, when Harris was the
driver of the car.

i Price of Tap Boosted. from $10 to $30
and $60 Dollars.
| The most important piece of bor-
ough legislation put through at the
: regular meeting of borough council,
‘on Monday evening, was the passing
‘of an ordinance boosting the charge
for sewer taps from $10 to $30 for a
single house and $60 for a double
house. The ordinance has been under
consideration for some time and when
, brought up for final action on Mon-
‘ day evening was opposed by Mr. Cun-
'ningham, who expressed the belief
, that charges for taps should be based
'on the amount of sewage carried
from a building instead of on a
double, or single house. He declared
that hotels, boarding and apartment
houses should pay more than a pri-
‘vate residence, etc. When an aye and
nay vote was taken seven members
| voted in favor of the ordinance and
: Mr. Cunningham and Mr. Flack
against it. Mr. Cunningham request-
ed that his objections be recorded in
the minutes.
When council convened four resi-
dents of Reservoir hill, Malcolm
Young, Harold Benner, Blair Conevy
and Ernest Benner, were present, the
first two to ask for a sewer extension
to their houses and the last two for
both water and sewer to new houses
they intend erecting on Burnside
street. The young men averred that
they would only pay ten dollars a tap
for the sewer, but were informed by
president Walker that they would
have to pay what council would decide
on, if they got the sewer. In the
meantime, the sewer request was re-
ferred to the Street committee and
the Water request to the Water com-
mittee, .
The Deitrick—Dunlap Cadillac com-
pany presented a permit from Har-
rishurg for the putting down of a
gas tank and the installation of a
pump at their garage on the corner
of Bishop and Allegheny streets, and
the matter was referred to the Fire
and Police committee.
The Logan Fire company presented
two bills totalling $60 for the repair
of their hook and ladder truck which
was damaged in a collision with an
automobile while returning from a
fire. The bills were referred to the
Fire and Police committee for investi-
gation and report. :
The Street committee reported dig-
ging ditches for several sewer exten-
sions and miscellaneous collections to-
talling $11.75.
The Water committee reported re-
pairs to meters, laying a water line
extension on west Lamb street, mis-
cellaneous collections of $121.68 as
well as $25 on the 1924 water dupli-
cate, $14.50 on the 1925 and $333.50 on
the 1926, a check for which was turn-
ed over to the secretary of council.
" The Finance committee recom-
mended that exonerations of $46.83
on the 1923 borough tax duplicate
and $783.49 on the 1925 duplicate re-
quested by tax. collector Herbert
Auman be allowed, and council ap-
proved the recommendation.
The committee also recommended
that the tax millage for 1927 be
fixed at the same rate as last year—
10 mills for borough purposes, 10 for
street and 5 for interest, and council
so ordered.
Council also authorized the renew-
al of a note for $2000 and a new note
for $2000 to meet current bills.
The Fire and Police committee re-
ported receipt of a rebate of $9.75
from the American La France Fire
Engine company on materials pur-
chased by the fire companies.
Mr. Emerick asked the borough
manager if he had a record of the
exact cost of putting down the sewer
extensions he is now working on, and
suggested that records be kept for
future reference. The borough
manager said he could give exact
costs when the sewers are completed.
Mr. Brouse, of the Street commit-
tee, reported that residents of north
Allegheny street have signified their
willingness to put down pavements as
soon as they are given a grade, and
this they will arrange to do soon.
Mr. Brouse also reported that the
committee had made an inspection of
the streets that needed top-dressing
and to do the work will require 10656
gallons of oil.and 444 tons of crushed
stone, at an approximate cost of
$3,000. The committee was instruct-
ed to get bids on both oil and stone,
ascertain how soon the work can be
done and report at next meeting.
Mr. Eckel stated to council that the
Pennsylvania Railroad company has
put a stop to all travel over the
bridge south of the station and resi-
dents on both the north and south
sides of Spring creek would like per-
mission to put a footbridge across the
stream. The matter was referred to
the Special committee.
| The report of the borough auditors
for the year 1926 was submitted to
. council and on recommendation of the
| Finance committee it was accepted
rand an order made for its printing
and distribution.
i It was at this juncture in the pro-
ceedings that the new sewer ordi-
nnce was taken up, and passed.
Bills totalling $2852.82 were ap-
proved for payment after which coun-
cil adjourned.

ey, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Rockey,
and Miss Sarah E. McKinley, daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. William McKin-
ley, both of Fillmore, were married
at the Evangelical parsonage, Belle-
fonte, at eight o’clock last Saturday

——Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Shuey this
week received a letter from Dr. and
Mrs. W. R. North, mailed at Paris,
France, and containing the very de-
lightful information that they would
sail shortly for home and expect to
reach New York either the latter part
of this week or beginning of next.
They will go direct to Syracuse, to be
present at the annual commencement
exercises of the Syracuse University.
Dr. and Mrs. North went to China as
members of the Syracuse mission in
the fall of 1923 and in the more than
three years they spent in China they
have had some wonderful experiences,
but there is little doubt but that they
will be glad to get back to the United
