the movie loving public ought to do
its best toward encouraging it for the
attempt to give the community such
an early showing of a picture that is
nothing less than a sensation.

Stella Wagner, of Jersey Shore, was
painfully burned on the hands in a
bucket of hot tar, while working on
the new hangar for the National Air
Transport company, at the Bellefonte
aviation field, last Saturday morning.
He was putting hot tar on the roof

bucket to a fellow workman the han-
dle broke. In trying to save the tar
Wagner slipped and in an effort to
save himself from falling plunged both
hands into the bucket of hot tar. He
was taken to the Centre County hos-
pital where his hands were dressed
and he was then taken to the Jersey
Shore hospital for further treatment.
MANY MOTOR ACCIDENTS
DURING THE WEEK-END.
One Centre Countian Killed, Others
Last Thursday afternoon, while en-
route from Philipsburg to Osceola
Mills, Harry L. Camp, a traveling
salesman, * of Providence, R. I., but
formerly of Tyrone, crashed into a
pony cart being driven along the
Highway, near Hudson, by Brainard
Pierson, fourteen year old son of Mr.
and Mrs. Herbert Pierson, of Gear-
hartville. The boy was thrown out of
the cart and sustained a fractured ear
drum, cuts on his hand and body
Between eleven and twelve o’clock
last Thursday night, a collision occur-
red between John Nighthart’s car and
a Ford coupe, driven by Elmer Weav-
er, of Zion, near the John Eby farm
on the Nittany - valley road. Mr.
Nighthart, with his wife and daugh-
ter Margaret, were on their way
home from the dance at Hecla park
while young Weaver was taking two
young ladies home from the Grang-
er’s picnic. The impact threw the
Nighthart car into the bank smash-
ing the left front wheel, breaking a
spring and damaging the left fender.
The Ford coupe was turned complete-
ly around in the road and upset, all
the glass in it being shattered to
pieces. Remarkable as it may seem,
none of the occupants of either car
were seriously hurt.
About six 9’clock on Saturday even-
ing a man driving a New York car,
scraped fenders with another car at
the intersection of Allegheny and
Bishop streets and becoming rattled
drove his car almost head-on into the
electric light standard in front of the
Bellefonte Hardware company’s store.
Fortunately he was not going very
fast and the standard was not broken
off but the front of his car was more
or less damaged.
Thomas Twigg, 21-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Twigg, of Sandy
Ridge, was instantly killed in an ac-
cident near Milroy, last Friday night,
and his brother, Samuel Twigg, aged
16, and sister, Miriam Twigg, aged
19, were both seriously injured. The
three young people lived at Juniata
Terrace, near Lewistown, and worked
at the Viscose silk mill. On Friday
evening they were members of an au-
tomobile party of six who attended a
weiner roast at “Happy Jim” Au-
rand’s farm, above Milroy. Sewell
Wilson, 19 years old, was the driver
of the car. On the way home, about
eleven o'clock, Wilson lost control of
the car at a sharp turn in the road
and crashed into two telephone poles.
Thomas Twigg’s neck was broken in
the crash and he died instantly. Wil-
son, the driver of the car, was so
badly injured that he died shortly
after at the Lewistown hospital.
Not one of the party of six escaped
Relatives of Thomas Twigg from
Rush township ‘went to Lewistown
and conveved the young man’s re-

were held and burial made on Tues-
On Saturday afternoon a motorist
from another State was driving down
Bald Eagle valley and between How-
ard and Beech Creek wrecked his car
in an unusual accident. A young man
was driving a team of horses hitched
in a dump wagon toward Lock Haven
with a horse trailing behind. As the
motorist neared the team he tooted
his horn to pass and as he did so the
trailing horse jumped from behind
the wagon right in front of the auto-
mobile. The horse was struck and
killed and the impact threw the ma-
chine into a telephone pole and
through the fence into a field. The
machine was badly damaged but the
two men and a boy in it were not in-
jured. The horse killed belonged to
Abe Klevansky, of Lock Haven,
When the accident occurred the
highway patrolmen, of Bellefonte,
were summoned to the scene and both
Graham and Wishinger started on
their motorcycles. At Milesburg a
car cut across the road right in front
of Wishinger with the result that his
motorcycle collided with the machine
and he was thrown, sustaining an in-
jury to one leg and cuts and bruises.
He remounted his machine, however,
and continued his journey to the scene
of the motor accident below Howard.
On MonZay M. R. Johnson and fam-
ily started on a motor trip to Phil-
ipsburg to see the Labor day demon-
stration, intending to go by way of
Snow Shoe. Just above Runville they
noticed a coal truck standing on the
road, the driver talking to a man
alongside the car. As Mr. Johnson
neared the truck the man started and
pulled out in the road in front of the
Johnson car, with the result that the
truck and the car collided. There
were five pepole in the Johnson car
and all suffered bruises and shock but
no serious injuries. While the John-
Son car was damaged it was able to
be brought back to Bellefonte on its
own power, but the family missed the
trip to Philipsburg.
A collision occurred on Wednesday
afternoon between the City bakery
truck and a car from Ridgway, the
two coming together on Allegheny
street, in front of the Linn residence.
Both car and truck were damaged but
no one injured.

Only 58 Civil War Veterans Living in
During the Civil war Centre county
furnished approximately three thous-
and soldiers who saw active service.
Naturally quite a number met death
on the battle-field, others died of
wounds and disease, but the majority
lived to return home and recite to
their children and grand-children the
exciting tales of their campaigns in
the South. Centre county had organi-
zations and parts or organizations in
thirteen regiments, and they saw ser-

of the county. The list as compiled,

Repairs Started on Farmers’ National
The board of directors of the new
Farmers’ National bank, having taken
over the old Centre County bank
building, a force of men are now at
work making changes desired to meet
the requirements of the new bank,
which will be opened for business on
or about October first. Some of the
exterior woodwork at the roof which
had been partially decayed has been
replaced with new.
There will also be a rearrangement
of the interior of the bank so as to
provide four customers’ windows, and
slightly increase the size of the lobby.
Both the exterior and interior will be
repainted and new paper put on the
Bank furniture and furnishings
have been ordered as well as a neces-
sary supply of stationery, bank books,

time no announcement has been made
as to the personnel of the working
organization further than that Mr.
Horace G. Work, for thirteen years
cashier of the First National bank at
Marion Centre, will probably be in
that same capacity with the new in-
stitution and that the Rev. Reed O.
Steely will be its working president.

general cleaning up no major changes
will be made in the interior of the
banking room as it is the purpose of

| NATIONAL AIR DERBY
TO BE BIG EVENT.
Arrangements Well Uuder Way for
Flight of Ships.
The national air derby which will
take place on September 19th, 20th
and 21st, from New York to Spokane,
Wash., as a prelude to the national
air races in that city, will be the first
event of the kind ever held in the
United States and from the arrange-
ments so far completed promises to
be the biggest flight of airships ever
seen in this or any other country.
The races will be divided into three
classes. Class B ships, which will
make their flight on Monday, Septem-
ber 19th, and all of which must stop
in Bellefonte for five minutes, during
which time they can take on gas and
oil as needed.
Class A ships, which will make
their first scheduled stop at Cleveland,
but can come down in Bellefonte for
oil and gas if needed, though they
will have to do it on their own time.
These ships will fly on Tuesday, Sep-
thc non-stop flight
which will take place on Wednesday,
the 21st. These ships are scheduled
to fly from New York to Spokane
without a stop.
The flight of all the ships will be
over the trans-continental airmail
route from New York to Chicago, so
that all of them will pass over Belle-
While it is not yet definitely known
how many ships will be entered in
Class B or Class A, in the non-stop
flight there already are thirteen ap-
plications for entrance. In the other
two classes there will be many more.
Bellefonte people are planning for
a big day on the 19th when the Class
B ships go through. Every arrange-
ment will be made to facilitate their
landing, refuelling and taking off at
the Bellefonte aviation field. The
ships are scheduled to leave New
York at 5.30 a. m. in squads of ten
and if they have fair weather should
begin arriving in Bellefonte by 7.30.
An adequate force of men will be on
the field to give the ships whatever
attention they need .
As there is sure to be a big crowd
on hand state policemen will be on
guard to keep the field clear for the

Case of Infantile
sis in Centre County.
Infantile paralysis has become prev-
alent in the eastern and western sec-
tions of the State with one or two
cases reported in Altoona and Johns-
town, but so far, according to health
officer J. L. Tressel, there are no
known cases in Centre county. Infan-
tile paralysis is a most insidious dis-
ease, affecting - children’ and young
people, and is declared communicable.
For this reason health officer Tressell
advises most scrupulous care in re-
gard to food and drink.
After the above item was put in
type we have been informed that one
| case ‘has developed in Centre county,
that .of three-year-old Lottie Nelson,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Nel-
son, of Halfmoon township. The child
has been ill for two weeks and on
Saturday © night the trouble was
diagnosed as infantile paralysis. Both
legs and an arm were affected but
one: leg has cleared up and the other
leg and arm is still partially paraly-
zed, but it is believed are clearing up,

principal events was a ball game be-
