Two Old Deeds Recorded.
Two old deeds were entered of rec-
ord in the court house, last week, ana
the most curiosity in connection
therewith is where the documents
have been all these years and how
they came to be uncovered at this
late day. The one deed was dated
March 7, 1795, and in which Samuel
Miles conveyed to Joseph Green a lot
of ground in Bald Eagle township,
Mifflin county, for a consideration of
10 pounds sterling. That was before
Centre county was erected out of
parts of Huntingdon, Mifflin and Ly-
coming. Samuel Miles was the man
who founded the village of Miles-
The other deed was dated April 13,
1857, and was a conveyance of the
same lot of ground, then known as
lot No. 64 in the borough of Miles-
burg, from Joseph Green to John Holt.
The lot in question has of late been
in posession of A. T. Boggs and the
hunting up and filing for record of
the old deeds was done to clear the
claim of title.

Unionville Over the Top for Near
The first district in Centre county
to go over the top in its quota for
Near East relief was Unionville. It
had a quota of $100 and the commit-
tee in charge there reported a total
Unless Centre county reaches its
quota of $8861, the training of the
children of the Near East for self
support cannot go on to its finish.
The budget for sufficient funds to
meet this great task has been very
carefully prepared and if any unit in
the United States fails to meet its
quota some child must suffer. Centre
county has always gone over the top
but it has not yet met this quota.
Pledges can be paid on or before June
30th, 1929. That we may fulfill this
obligation and have an_honorable dis-
charge from service, it is the earnest
desire of the Centre county committee.
Let all fall in line and do their
share by sending in pledges as well
as cash payments to the treasurer,
Chas. M. McCurdy, First National
Academy Minstrels Progressing.
Among those who will take part in
the 1928 Academy minstrels, which
will appear in the State theatre on
the evening of May 24th, are George
Shuster, "Alf Kennedy, Richard Whet-
stone and Kenneth Holderman, song
and dance artists, of State College.
Bill Neff, celebrated as an expert am-
ateur magician, also of State Col-
lege, and Huberta May Dunkel, the
little dance artist of Juniata, but
formerly of Pittsburgh. Some very
clever talent has been developed
among the Academy students so that
a performance of more than the aver-
age merit is assured.
The beauty contest which is being
waged as one of the attractions of
the minstrels is beginning to take
hold among the fair young ladies of
Centre county, and promises to devel-
op into an exciting and interesting
part of the production. -Quite a num-
ber of names have already been list-
ed but it is not yet too late for others
to enter. Anyone desiring to do so
should communicate with Miss Helen
E. C. Overton, at the Academy.
Toner A. Hugg to Visit France With

catory exercises and in addition will

Lock Haven Man Killed Resisting
Guerney Paul, of Lock Haven, was
shot and killed on Wednesday after-
noon, after he had shot and badly
wounded policeman Martin Peters,
who sought to effect his arrest on a
warrant sworn out by the man’s wife.
Mrs. Paul had sworn out the warrant
on the allegation that her husband
had a gun and threatened to kill her.
Constable John Pettingill attempt-
ed to serve the warrant but quailed
when Paul threatened to shoot him.
He then induced officer Peters to as-
sist him in making the arrest. The
two men went to the Paul home, Pe-

upstairs and when Peters ordered him
to come down he appeared at the head
of the stairs and opened fire. The
officer returned the fire. Paul was

stantly. Peters was shot in the ab-
domen and though badly hurt will
