Head Almost Severed in Twain by
Falling Pole.
Struck on the top of the head by a
falling pole, shortly after the noon
hour, last Friday afternoon, Wilfred
I. Miller was instantly killed. His
thoughtfulness in rushing his men
out of danger may have caused the
few seconds delay which resulted in
his own death. j
The accident happened at the Miller
limestone quarries on the Knox farm,
west of Valley View, in Buffalo Run
valley. Mr. Miller, who was in charge
at the plant, was overseeing the work
of extending the tipple. They had suc-
cessfully hoisted a thirty-foot pole by
using a block and tackle fastened
around a square piece of timber at
the top of the trestle work, and with
pinch bars were prying the butt of
the pole into position. While so do-
ing the pole swung toward the trestle
enough to permit the tackle to slack-
en and slip off the timber, and thus
released, it fell to the ground.
When Mr. Miller realized that the :
pole was falling he hesitated just long
enough to call tq all the men to get
out of the way then started to run
himself. But the top of the pole
caught him on the top of his head,
cutting it open and crushing the en-'
tire left side. Fatally injured, al-
though he was, he got to his feet,
but at once collapsed to the ground
and died on the spot.
When the pole fell one of the guy
vopes used to steady it, also caught
Elmer Watkins and threw him on a
cinder pile badly cutting and bruising
the right side of his face and head. |
Had the men stood in their tracks as
the pole fell neither one would have
been hurt.
to Bellefonte in the ambulance and
taken to the Harris undertaking es-
tablishment to be prepared for burial.
Watkius was brought to a Bellefonte
physician and after his injuries were
dressed walked home. :
Mr. Miller was the eldest son of
Conrad and Mary H. Miller and was
born in Bellefonte in July, 1888, hence
wag not yet 40 years old. His entire
life was spent here and he was his
father’s able assistant in his various
limestone operations. He was a mem-
ber of the Catholic church, the 4th
degree camp Knights of Columbus, of
Altoona, and the Bellefonte Lodge of
Sixteen years ago he married Miss
Edna Williams who survives with two
children, Rachel and Anthony. He al-
so leaves his parents and one brother,
Martin J. Miller, at home. The latter
also works at the limestone quarries
and witnessed the accident which re-
sulted in his brother’s death.
Funeral services were held in St.
John’s Catholic church, at ten o’clock
cn Tuesday morning, by Rev. Father
Downes, burial being made in the
Catholic cemetery.
On Friday morning William Breon
was injured in a premature explosion
of a dynamite charge at the plant of
the Centre County Lime company, in
Buffalo Run valley. His lower jaw
was broken and he suffered a num-
ber of bad cuts on the face, head and
arms. At first it was feared that his
eyesight might have been destroyed,
but fortunately such is not the case.
Breon was taken to the Centre Coun-
ty hospital where he is getting along
very satisfactorily.
Russell Jodon Injured When Motor-
cycle Collides with Car.
On Saturday evening Russell Jodon,
son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Jodon, rode
into town on his brother Joe’s motor-
cycle. He started home about 10:30
o’clock, when the snow was falling
rapidly, and in front of the C. Y.
Wagner residence, on Willowbank
street, ran headon into the rear of an
automobile. The machine belongs to
a man named Eckley, of State Col-
lege, who, on starting home on south
Water street, discovered he had a flat
tire. In order to get out of the heavy
traffic and have the advantage of the
| arc light on the bridge he drove over
in front of the Wagner home, pulled
as far as possible to the right of the
road and changed tires. He had just
replaced the bad tire in the hanger
on the rear of his car and stepped
away when Jodon crashed into the
car. The impact threw the young
man from the motorcycle and he was
thrown head first against Mr. Eckley,
sinking to the ground unconscious.
Mr. Eckley picked him up and
managed to get him into his
car, then took him to the hospital
It was over an hour before he re-
gained consciousness. He sustained
a good-sized cut on the head and suf-
fered from shock so that it was neces-
sary to keep him in the hospital sev-
eral days. Had he not collided with
Mr. Eckley and had his head struck
the brick pavement his injuries might
have been far more serious.
Penn State to be Host to High School

Bellefonte Knights Templar to Attend Brief Meeting of Borough Council on
Grand Conclave at Reading.
A special conclave of Constans
| Commandery, Knights Templar, No.
| 33, of Bellefonte, was held last Fri-
day evening, when the beautful Order
of the Temple was conferred upon
eight candidates from various parts
of the county.
| Definite plans were also completed
for attending the grand conclave to
be held in Reading May 21st, 22nd
and 23rd. As the presiding officer on
that occasion will be Right Eminent
Sir Boyd A. Musser, of Scranton, but
formerly of Bellefonte and a member
of Constans Commandery, consider-
able local interest is already manifest
in that gathering.
Commander Musser has signified
his desire to have his home Command-
ery act as his escort and also lead the
big parade, which is always a feature
of the conclave. Because of the lat-
ter fact Constans Commandery will
go to Reading some forty or fifty
strong. As planned now the mem-
bers will charter two Pullman cars
for the trip and will live in them
{while in Reading. They have en-
gaged the Penn State military band of
' seventy-five pieces to lead them in the
‘parade and will arrange to have the
band taken to Reading and back in
motor busses.
As a compliment to Commander
Musser large delegations will also
‘attend the conclave from Lewistown,
Huntingdon and Philipsburg, where
the other Commanderies in this divi-
sion are located.
The Pennsylvania conclave is the
largest in the United States, includ-
ing about 45,000 members. Because
of this fact Reading Knights are pre-
paring to entertain a large crowd on
a magnificent scale. The conclave
was held there twenty years ago and
the present generation are all set to
outdo their fathers.
Anent Constans Commandery, it
has been unusually active this year,
having taken in over thirty new mem-
bers and now having on its roll al-
most three hundred Knights. Natur-
ally it is their ambition to make an
impressive showing at the May con-
clave and thus convince their fellow
Knights from other parts of the State
that Bellefonte continues to shine in
the limelight.
Hungarian Partridges Put Out by
Philipsburg Sportsmen.
Game protector Thomas G. Mosier,
of Bellefonte, last week received a
consignment of Hungarian partridges
which he secured especially for the
State Centre Fish and Forestry as-
sociation, of Philipsburg, the mem-
bers of which are anxious to try out
the propagation of these game birds
in the mountainous sections of Rush
township. The birds came direct from
Holland and were forty-three days
making the journey. There were
forty-three in the crates but two of
them were dead.
Mr. Mosier received the birds on
Friday and on Saturday Elmer Pill-
ings, gamekeeper in Rush township,
motored to Bellefonte and took the
partridges to Philipsburg. Notwith-
standing the deep fall of snow they
were released in well covered wooded
sections on Sunday, in four coveys.
Boxes of feed sufficient to last two
or three weeks were placed with each
covey, and by the time that has been
consumed the birds ought to be able
to shift for themselves.
Deserts College to Join the Army.
A letter to one of his fraternity
brothers at State College, received
yesterday morning, revealed that
Richard Detwiler, of Smullton, this
county, has enlisted for service in
finance service of the regular army.
He enlisted at Ft. Slocum, N. Y., on
Young Detwiler was a Freshman at
State, a member of the glee club and
Inter-Collegiate two-mile Freshman
On March 15th he left College to
go home because of a bad cold. On
Monday he had sufficiently recovered
to return to his studies and started
for State, so his mother thought. He
did not turn up there and some alarm
was felt as to his non-appearance. A
hunt was instituted without results
until the letter from him came yes-
terday morning.
His mother knew nothing of his
whereabouts after leaving home and
was still in ignorance of his having
deserted a college career yesterday

in Bellefonte.
The Pennsylvania Department of
Health appreciates the co-operation
which has been manifested by the
medical profession at large in the en-
forcement of its program of prevent-
ive medicine and is desirous of estab-
lishing a still more intimate contact
with physicians threughout the State.
To further this end it is the De-
partment’s purpose to hold an all day
chest clinic in the Red Cross rooms,
Bellefonte, on Wednesday, April 4th,
from 10 o’clock a. m. to 4 p. m. The
clinie will be conducted by Dr. Thom-
as H. A. Stites, medical director of

tion is extended to the physicians of
Centre and neighboring counties to
attend. \

Monday Evening.
Just six members of borough coun-
cil were present at the regular meet-
ing, on Monday evening, the ab-
sentees being Messrs: J. M. Cunning-
ham, John Mignot and Robert E.
Kline, and with visions of that big
St. Patrick’s day banquet awaiting
them at the Undine fire company the
six members present made short shift
of the business at hand.
Secretary Kelly presented a bill
from pronthonotary S. Claude Herr
for the court costs and witness fees
in the case of Mrs. Laura E. Wright
vs. Bellefonte borough, which was ap-
proved and ordered paid.
The Street committee reported var-
ious minor repairs on several streets
and receipt of $30 for a sewer per-
mit. Regarding the request of J. C.
Jodon for the opening of an alley at
the rear of his property on east High
street, and extending east to Wilson
street, the committee reported that
the present alley in that section is a
private one, and there is no provision
on the map of the borough for a pub-
lic alley in that locality.
The Water committee reported that
repairs have been completed on the
gravity pump at the Phoenix station,
and that it is now pumping approx-
imately a million gallons daily, which
will be a great saving in the expense
of operating the electric pumps. The
cornmittee also reported the collection
of $16.00 on the 1926 water duplicate
and $1184.00 on the 1927.
The Fire and Police committee pre-
sented the estimate of R. C. Witmer
of the cost of stringing an extra wire
from the telephone exchange to the
fire alarm, which was between $90 and
$100, and the committee was authoxr-
ized to have the work done.
The Finance committee presented
the report of the borough treasurer
which showed a balance on hand of
$8000.33. The committee also asked
for the renewal of notes totalling $11,-
750, which was authorized. Report
was made that the treasurer had re-
ceived a warrant from the United
States treasurer for $212.50, six
month’s interest on a $10,000 bond
held by the borough. The committee
asked that an order be drawn for
$1651.90 as payment of six months’
interest on the borough bonds, and
the same was authorized.
President Walker appointed A.
Miles Barr an auditor for the Pruner
orphanage accounts after which bills
aggregating $2822.10 were approved
for payment and council adjourned.
P. R. R. Wants the Fairbrook Branch
Having abandoned the Fairbrook
branch and accepted the offer of the
Bellefonte Central Railroad company
for its purchase, the Pennsylvania
railroad company has evidently rued
its bargain and is anxious to get the
line back; or at least to get it out
of possession of the Bellefonte Cen-
tral, according to an announcement in
the Traffic World, this week, which
contains a notice of a hearing to be
held in the court house, Bellefonte,
on Wednesday, April 4th, at 9.30
o’clock in the morning.
The hearing will be before repre-
sentatives of both the Public Service
Commission and the Interstate Com-
merce Commission. According to the
report, after the Bellefonte Central
had made its offer of purchase and
the same had been accepted by the
Pennsylvania Railroad company, the
purpose of the Bellefonte Central to
construct a connecting link between
its present line at. State College and
the Fairbrook branch became known.
As this would give them a line from
Bellefonte to within a few miles of
Tyrone, and afford them the advan-
tage of a long haul on all freight
shipments originating on its line, as
well as incoming freight to State Col-
lege, it would naturally be in compe-
tition with the P. R. R.
To prevent this, if possible, the P.
R. R. instituted an action before the
Public Service Commission and the
Interstate Commerce Commission to
recover possession of the Fairbrook
branch, and it is in the interest of this
action that the hearing will be held.
What the P. R. R. would do with the
road, should it recover possession, has
not been intimated.
Thelma Williams’ Manager found in
Detroit, Mich.
A man who gave his name as Ros-
coe Grimm, and age thirty-five years,

liams, the “Miss Pittsburgh” of 1926,

tests. He was released under $3,500
bail while Miss Williams was released
cn her own personal bond of $1000.
Both Mr. Grimm and Miss Williams

among his frends and acquaintances in
town. Mr. Beck is a farmer and occupies
{the old homestead purchased from the
| Amish by his grandfather three quarters
of a century ago, and he still clings to
some of the old ideas about farming,
which is probably one of the reasons why
his farm is one of the best in that valley.
While he has all the up-to-date farm
equipment—tractors, sulkey plows and
cultivators, most of his ploughing is done
with the old-fashioned handle plow, be-
cause he is confident that he can get his
ground in better condition that way. And
the crops he raises every year would
seem to justify his contention.

who has been ill most of the winter, made
the first trip down town in several months,
Wednesday. For part of the time he was
confined to his home on Quaker Hill he
was really very seriously ill and while he
is still far from being as strong as usual
the bright sunshine of the first day of
spring was too much of a lure for him
to resist. When we told him that he
didn’t look like an invalid he laughingly
replied: “Yes, that’s what some of my
visitors said when I was flat on my back
in bed and really didn’t know whether I'd
last more than a day longer.”

—The Federal Match company
closed one department of its Belle-
fonte plant, on Tuesday, laying off
about one hundred employees. Offi-
cials of the company stated that the
department will be closed probably
two weeks. With a hundred people
thrown idle at the match factory and

—A salesman making the rounds
of Bellefonte, last week, visited forty
homes and at all but six of them he
was turned away with the dishearten-
ing information that the woman was
unable to buy because her husband
had no work at present. This is a
condition which prevails generally
throughout Central Pennsylvania and
the many idle men are living in the
hope that conditions will improve be-
fore many weeks.
