When the law was passed provid-

penitentiary in Centre county no pro-
vision was made for “covefing the
‘costs’ of escaping prisoners. But at
a later session of the Legislature a
bill was passed providing” that all’
‘court costs should be paid by the
counties from which prisoners had
been originally sentenced, but this
bill was defective inasmuch as it did
not provide for the costs of trans-
porting prisoners back to Pittsburgh,
so that it wasgleft for the next Legis-
lature to- amend the bill to include
such costs, and it was not until *1919'

Centre County Boys and Girls Place
Well at Farm Products Show.
Centre county was well represented
at the State farm products show, in
Harrisburg, last week. Approximate-
ly one hundred and fifty farmers and
members of their families were in at-
tendance, and all agreed that it was
by far the largest and best show ever
held. i
One of the main features was the
boys and girls 4H club exhibits of
baby beeves, lambs and dairy calves.
Nine boys and girls out of the fifteen
in the Centre county lamb feeding
club exhibited their lambs in the
State-wide contest. In face of keen
competition Centre county lambs
placed as follows, according to breeds:
Southdowns—1st, Jane Vial, State
College; 2nd, Donald Campbell, Penn-
sylvania Furnace; 3rd, Alice Foust,
Centre Hall; 4th, Ray Homan, State
College. ; itr :
_Hampshires—1st., Clarence Hoy,
Bellefonte; 2nd., Joseph Whiting, Sus-
quehanna county; 3rd., James Camp-
bell, Pennsylvania . Furnace; 4th.,
Floyd Weight, Bellefonte; 5th,
Charles Harter, Nittany.
In addition to the above Fred Lose,
Centre Hall, won second in the Shrop-
shire class in competition with sev-
eral pens from Washington county.
The pen of Southdowns exhibited by
Jane Vial, of State College, also won
reserve grand champion.
The Centre county club exhibits
won $118.00 in prize money. ' The
lambs were sold by pens at auction
after they were judged for an aver-
age of 16.3 eents per pound." The
Centre county lambs averaged 16.6
per pound. The six pens that were not
taken to Harrisburg sold loeally for
114 cents a pound. The lambs made
an average gain of approximately 30
pounds apiece, and were bought at
the start of the feeding period for
12 cents a’ pound, thus making a
nice profit to the members of the club.
H. E.’ Hennigh, of Spring Mills,
was a successful exhibitor of White-
rock chickens, winning third and
fourth on pullets, and third and fifth
on cockerels.” There were a large
number of entries in the Whiterock
show and competition was very keen,

“M’lle Modiste” Likely to Open the
New State Theatre,
The management of the new State
theatre has announced that in all
probability the house will be ready in
the very near future and that, from
the present outlook, the Bellefonte
High school glee club may be able to
present Mlle. Modiste Tuesday and
Wednesday evenings, February 14th
and 15th. It is very important that
the play be given during the week’ of
the 12th in order to avoid the Lenten
season and also the payment of extra
royalty charges.
Never has the glee club done finer
work than it is doing now. It is al-
most unbelievable that a group of
such very young folks can so admir-
ably handle the very difficult and mar-
velously beautiful music of Victor
Herbert's “Mlle. Modiste.” Without
any hesitation or feeling about for
tones, the opening chorus of twenty
voices modulates from one key to an-
other in a manner that would do cred-
it to an adult group of trained sing-
ers and those who have listened in on
rehearsals have remarked on the
beautiful work done by the “shop
This same chorus in Act II is the
finest dancing chorus the High school
has ever trained and the public will,
after seeing them perform in the
“Glow-Worm” specialty, endorse the
statement, while the principals are
finer than ever. SH
Costumes, made in the school, of
gold and silver cloth and other ex-
pensive materials direct from a well-
known textile corporation on Broad-
way, together with rented costumes
from Boston, will lend color to the
production. :
“The soldier girls and officers con-
stitute another spectacular and beau-
tiful chorus, and Act II opens with a
“sparkle” of sixty-five colorful and
radiant costumes. Never has the club
dressed a show as gorgeously as this
one is being dressed. i
Beautiful specialties by little folks
as pansies, powder puffs and butter-
flies, are interpolated and are high
spots in the show. “Farina” of the
Hal Roach gang plays a “return en-
gagement” and the “Duncan Sisters”
—Topsy and Eva, will also be there.
These are just a few of the fine
things promised the public in the
High school production of Victor Her-
bert’s “Mlle. Modiste.”
Although expenses on the show are
higher than on any previous offering,
the price of 75 cents will continue to
be the cost of High school produc-
tions. A matinee for children only
will be given on the first day at a
special reduced price. The exact date
of the show will be announced next
week and tickets will be on sale about

Not alone from the group of host~

Bellefonte chapter D. A. R., Mrs. E.
H. Lederer, Mrs. H. W. Thurston Jr.,
Mrs. T. B. Charles, Mrs. L. S. Rhoades,

in permitting the use of its elegant-
ly furnished, spacious club room: the
evening of January 5th. kd
There the aesthetic good was at
least three-fold; the very instructive
and interesting talk of Mrs. W. W.
Braman, on “Early American Furni-
ture,” was illustrated by slides from
the Metropolitan museum of art,
shown by Professor W. A. Broyles,
auditorially, the pleasure and uplift
came by well rendered musical num-
bers (the piano-playing of Miss Jane
Cowell, the violin solos by Miss Kep-
pal, and the singing of Mrs. Cloet-
ingle, were enthusiastically encored,
and then in the refreshments the
guests found not alone satisfaction
for the palate, but, in their color
scheme, a patriotic suggestion.
