Hospital Restores Mental Patients to
Places in Society.
Twenty-four patients returned to
their families, restored in mental
health, following treatment at the
Danville State Hospital for Mental
Diseases, according to the report to

ANNIE PREFERS JAIL
TO HUNBING A HOME.
Sokolosky Woman in Jail So Long
She Has No Horror at
Annie Sokolosky, who has spent
more years in the Centre county jail
than any other five women in the
county, was discharged last Saturday
afternoon and on Sunday afternoon
was sent back “on the hill,” and local
authorities are very much perplexed
as to what to do with her.
Annie lived at Edendale, Rush
township, and at one time owned and
operated a small store in that village.
She made and saved a little money
but finally deviated from the straight
and narrow path. During the past ten
or more years she has been before the
county court eight or more times, once
for larceny, once or twice for assault
and battery and four or five times for
Her husband died two years or more
ago and during 1926 her house and
store at Edendale caught fire and!
burned to the ground. Annie fixed
up an old outhouse and installed a
moonshine plant, making whiskey and
beer for the thirsty individuals of
that section. On March 38rd, 1927,
her shack was raided, two stills de-
stroyed and her stock of wet goods
confiscated. She was brought to the
Centre county jail the next day,
bringing with her her bible and pray-
er book, and at the time made the re-
mark that jail meant nothing to her.
On April 22nd, 1927, she plead guil-
ty before Judge Furst and was sen-
tenced to pay a fine of $100, costs of
prosecution and one year in the coun
ty jail. When her year’s term of im-
prisonment was up Judge Fleming of-
fered to release her if she would
promise to go home and be good, but
instead of making the promise she
declared she would go right back to
She was kept in jail until Saturday
when she was released at the request
of parole officer Roy Wilkinson. An-
nie didn’t want to go because she said
she had no place to go. Mr. Wilkin-
son gave her two dollars to pay her
way to Philipsburg but instead she
went out to Harry Dukeman’s, on
south Water street, and asked Mrs.
Dukeman to take her in. The latter,
naturally, refused to do so and direct-
ed her to the borough home. At the
home Mrs. Keen declined to take her
without an order from the overseers
of the poor and finally some one sug-
gested she hunt up Judge Fleming.
Just where she spent Saturday
night is not known but on Sunday
afternoon she was found sitting on the
steps of Judge Fleming's home and
was returned to jail. Annie, who is
now about fifty-nine years old, has
quite a family of children, some of
whom are doing very well but she
evidently does not want to go to any
of them. Just how the county is go-
ing to get rid of her remains to be
