Bankrupt Sale of the Harris Block JOHN SAYLOR MET DEATH
J. Clyde Jodon bought the Harris ,
block, occupied by the Potter-Hoy |
Hardware company, at the trustees |
sale in bankruptcy, on Monday after- |
noon, at his bid of $35,650. The prin-
cipal bidder against him was Oscar
Harm, but it was not divulged wheth- |
er he was bidding for himself or was
representing someone else.
The sale of the building was made
on the order of the Supreme court,
which ruled that the building was a
portion of the assets of the estate of
Mary C. Harris, hence must be sold
for the benefit of the creditors of the
Centre County Banking company.
The terms of the sale required the
purchaser to pay ten per cent of the
purchase price on the day of sale and
the balance when the deed is executed
and delivered. Ivan Walker, trustee
in charge of the sale, stated that he
hoped to have the deed ready for de-
livery in the near future.
The sale of the Harris block will
mean another dividend to the Credi-
tors of the Centre County Banking
company, probably eight per cent.
RUNKLE SALE TOTALLED $25,004.50.
The bankrupt sale of W. G. Runkle
holdings, last Friday, totalled $25,
094.50. His office furniture was pur-
chased by S. D. Gettig Esq., presum-
ably for Mr. Runkle. About a dozen
of his thirty-one tracts of land put up
for sale were bid in by Horace Kauf-
man, who was also acting for Mr.
Runkle, but the balance of the real
estate all went to legitimate purchas-
In his statement of outstanding ob-
ligations at the time he confessed to
voluntary brankruptcy, Mr. Runkle
placed his liabilities at approximately
forty thousand dollars. The trustee
acting in the case, however, has found
one or more errors which reduces the
obligations and it is probable they
will not exceed $37,000 or $38,000. If:
such should prove to be the case the
creditors will probably receive any-
where from fifty to sixty cents on the
dollar of their claims.

trip to the New England States and

INSTANTLY, LAST FRIDAY.
Killed by Falling Stone in Mine of
American Lime and Stone Co.
~ John Saylor, veteran of the World
war and during the past four years a
block driller in the underground mine
of the American Lime & Stone com-
pany, was instantly killed about 9.30
o'clock, last Saturday morning, when
a slab of stone fell from the roof of
the mine hitting him on the head.
Saylor was working on the second
level at the time of the accident and
no one was near him at the time. The
noise made by the falling rock at-
tracted the attention of workmen on
the same level and hurrying to where
Saylor had been working found his
lifeless body. The rear portion of his
head had been crushed and the head
partly severed from the body. The
stone evidently fell without warning
so that he had no time to make an
attempt to escape. Saylor had worked
for the company about five years,
four of which were spent in the mine.
He was a son of Peter and Mary
Layor Saylor and was born in Belle-
fonte on July 5th, 1889, hence was
not quite thirty-nine years old. His
entire life was spent here. He was
a laborer by occupation and an in-
dustrious and capable young man.
During the World war he served in
France having gone from Bellefonte
as a member of Troop L. He was a
member of the Catholic church, the
Brooks-Doll post of the American Le-
gion and the Logan Fire company. He
was unmarried but is survived by his
parents and the following brothers
and sisters: Miss Mary, and Mrs.
Harry E. Dunlap, of Bellefonte; Mrs.
Elmer Bertschy, of Wheeling, W. Va.;
Andrew, of Bellefonte; Philip and
! Fred, at home.
Funeral services were held in the
Catholic church at 10 o’clock Tues-
day morning, by Rev. Father Downes,
burial being made in the Catholic
Lewisburg Train Schedule to be
Changed Monday, June 25th.
The much discussed change in the
operation of trains on the Lewisburg
branch of the Pennsylvania railroad
will be put into effect next Monday,
June 25th. Effective that date there
will be no early morning train leaving
Bellefonte for Sunbury. The first
train over the road will be the one
leaving Sunbury and arriving in
Bellefonte at 9.10. ‘Returning it will
leave Bellefonte at 10 o’clock and ar-
rive in Sunbury on or about 12.40.
The afternoon train will leave Sun-
bury at 1.20 and arrive in Bellefonte
shortly after four o’clock. Returning
it will leave Bellefonte for Sunbury
at 5.25 p. m.
This change will naturally require
both train crews to lay over in Sun-
bury, and will necessitate Harry Page
and family leaving their home on
Thomas street and locating in Sun-
bury. The change will also affect the
train crews financially. Under the
present schedule they are allowed two
days’ pay for one round trip because
of the long hours. Under the new
schedule they will be able to make
the trip with very little overtime, so
that it will cut the men’s pay almost
