The New Farmers National Bank .
will Open Tomorrow.
Bellefonte’s new banking institu-
tion, the Farmers National bank, will
open for business tomorrow (Satur-
day) morning. No spectacular dis- |
play is scheduled for the opening. The
banking building, the old Centre Coun- |
ty bank, has been done over inside and
out and mostly new equipment install-
ed. As stated several weeks ago, the
lobby has been increased in size by
the shifting of partitions, and this
permits of four customers’ windows. |
Bank stationery has been received
and the actual cash will be on hand
in time for the opening of the
bank tomorrow morning. Rev. Reed
O. Steely, who will be the president
of the institution, has been devoting
considerable time to getting the build-
ing in shape for the opening as well as |
looking after the necessary equipment |
The new cashier, Mr. Horace G.!
Work, of Marion Centre, will be in his
place tomorrow and ready to greet
any and all prospective customers,
while Miss Betty Musser will be the
bank’s stenographer For the present
the working force of the bank will be
kept down to the smallest number
possible, but additional clerks will be
secured whenever the demands of the
bank warrant it.

State College Young Lady Loses Eye
in Mysterious Manner.
While walking on the campus of
the Pennsylvania State College, last
Wednesday evening, Miss Loretta
Foster, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J.
V. Foster, of State Colege, was struck
in the eye with a missile of some sort
that so injured the organ that its vis-
ion was permanently destroyed.
She was hurriedly taken to special-
ists in Philadelphia where it was
found that the sight is gone, but there !
is a chance “of saving the eye-ball,
unless its condition should affect the
The accident happened just at twi- |
light and was so unexpected and pain- |
ful that neither Miss Foster nor those
who were with her are sure of just |
what it was that caused the injury.
There was nobody in sight at the time
and the mystery is deepened by that
fact. There is a theory, however, that
it might have been caused by a stone
thrown by someone to frighten the
flocks of birds that roost on the trees
under which Miss Foster was passing.
Or it might have been a spent bullet
from a gun fired at some distance
from the scene of the lamentable
tragedy—for tragedy it was.
Improving the Y. M. C. A.
The work of redecorating the lobby
of the Bellefonte Y. M. C. A. has been
completed and it is a credit to the
men who did it. The expense was met
through the generosity of a Bellefonte
citizen. Equally fine is the gift of
another man and his wife, who have
made possible the redecorating of the
library and the ladies rest room on
the second floor,
Not to be outdone the boys have or-
ganized to do their part and have
started a movement to redecorate
their game room. To raise the money
they will engineer a bake sale to be
held on Saturday, October 8th. The
committee in charge includes Jack
Fisher, Lyman Zimmerman, Jack
Spangler, Bud Kelleher, Robert Guise-
white, Max Kelly, Francis Kramer
and Malcolm Gordon. Further details
The regular meeting of the board
of directors will be held next Monday
evening, October 3rd, at 7.30 o’clock,
A full turnout is desired as business
of importance will be considered.
—Judge Harvey Whitehead, of
Williamsport, this week handed down
an opinion in the case to determine
the ownership of the Harris block, in
which the Potter-Hoy hardware store
is located, in which he decreed that
the title is now vested in Ivan Walk-
er, trustee of the Mary Harris estate,
and not in the heirs of Mrs. Harris.
Whether the heirs will accept Judge
Whitehead’s decision is not known at
this writing, but should they appeal
and the upper court sustain.the find-
ing of the lower court the Harris
block and all the accumulated rentals
thereof would be added to the assets
of the Centre County Banking com-
pany for distribution among the de-
Vocational Classes Organized in Six
Township High Schools.
Six vocational classes in agricul-
ture have been organized in the fol-
lowing High schools of the county;
Centre Hall, Howard, Boalsburg,
Hublersburg, Spring township and
Port Matilda, by county vocational
supervisor, John B. Payne. This
school year the class room instruction
will cover the work in the animal pro-
duction series, with unit courses in
dairy cattle, hogs, general livestock
The boys enrolled in these classes
will receive instruction in the best
methods of feeding, management, and
general care of all farm livestock.
Much of this information will be made
available through the lectures, pic-
tures and many pamphlets that are
used for the course. Through the
courtesy of the First National bank
of Bellefonte the boys use agricultur-
al books published for each unit
course, The dairy course, the one
that is now being given, is of special
practical value here in Centre county
with the program of dairy improve-
ment under way and the place occu-
pied by the county in dairying.
The courses in swine, general live-
stock and poultry will be equally in-
teresting and profitable to the boys.
Along with the regular course the
boys are given a bulletin with almost
a fifteen minute discussion on some
general phase of agriculture that can
be put to practical use at once, such
as field selection of seed corn, fall
land preparation, culling poultry, ete.,
for this season. These short lessons
are arranged to fit in with the year’s
work on the farm.
Most of the schools that have the
opportunity for vocational agriculture
will conduct “Community Days” dur-
ing October. The tentative dates for
these days are Spring Mills, October
14; Walker township, October 21;
Port Matilda, October 27, and How-
ard, October 28. :
The enrollment of the vocational
classes in the high schools is as fol-
lows: —Centre Hall, 27; Boalsburg, 17;
Howard, 37; Port Matilda, 18; Hub-
lersburg, 18; Spring Township, 20.

Runaway Horse Wrecks Automobile,
Last Friday morning Ellis Snyder
brought some potatoes up from his
farm in Boggs township for his sis-
ter, Miss Mollie Snyder. He tied his
horse on Bishop St. near the Snyder
home while he unloaded the potatoes
and while he was in the house the an-
imal frightened, broke loose and ran
pell mell east on Bishop street. A
number of cars were parked on Bishop
street, between Spring and Allegheny,
among them Freddie Miller's Ford.
The horse ran headon into it, one
of the shafts going through the radia-
ator and up through the hood. The
horse’s head crashed through the
windshield and when he attempted to
extricate himself he almost wrecked
the top of the car. The impact of the
horse and wagon against the Miller
car pushed it back against the Ford
coupe of Elmer Garbrick, knocking
a big dent in the radiator and causing
other damage. When the horse was
finally extricated from the mixup it
was found that he had two holes
punched in one front leg and some
minor cuts from broken glass, but he
was able to travel to the Snyder home
near Milesburg under its own power,
though he left a trail of blood.
The Miller car was sent to a Miles-
burg garage where it was repaired at
the expense of Mr. Snyder. The Gar-
brick car is still at the Thompson
garage and who will bear the expense
of its repair has not vet been decided,

Big Doe Almost Wrecks Auto.
Hugh Daley, of Philadelphia, his
mother, Mrs. Clarence Daley, and his
sister, had a narrow escape, early last
Saturday morning, when a big doe
jumped right in front of their auto-
mobile while coming down the Seven
mountains. The Daleys left Philadel-
phia on Friday evening to make a
night run to Bellefonte. It was about
four o’clock on Saturday morning
when, coming down the mountain this
side of Walter Gherrity’s place, Mr.
Daley saw three deer on the right side
of the road and a big doe on the bank
at the left.
He was running at about thrity
miles an hour and as he neared the
deer the doe leaped. into: the road
right in front of the machine. The
animal was knocked down and run
over but she quickly got to her feet
and scrambled up the bank to the
right of the road. The impact when
the car hit the deer completely wreck-
ed one tire on the car and threw the
machine into the ditch at the side of
the road but fortunately it didn’t up-
set. Daley went into the woods some
distance on a search for the doe but
it had made a getaway and he wag
