ert Stewart, of Ashland, Ky.
Thirty applicants have filed
bids for carrying mail from Belle-
fonte to Millheim and return in the
event the afternoon train on the
Lewisburg railroad is discontinuad,
but so far there seems to be some un-
«certainty as to whether the train will
be taken off.
H. G. Work, formerly cashier
«of the Farmer’s National bank of this
place, is located permanently at Me-
dia, Pa.,to which city the family has '

A flue fire at the DeLallo home,
«on east Beaver street, last Friday af-
ternoon, called out the firemen but
‘the blaze was quickly extinguished
without doing much damage. The
Logans also responded to an alarm
of fire, at Axe Mann, on Saturday af-
‘ternoon, but a bucket brigade had the

Cows are said to be scarce and
high priced. Recent sales indicate
‘that they are selling high, but the ex-
perience of a local buyer would indi-
«cate that there are plenty to be had
if attractive offers are made for
them. Al Baum bought forty-one in
less than twenty-four hours, one day
last week, when commissioned to pro-
«cure a lot for a Belleville dealer.
The quarantine card was re-
‘moved last Thursday, from the home
«of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Witmer, of
Halfmoon Hill, whose little daughter
May has gone through a siege of in-
‘fantile paralysis. While the disease

ger of infection is past, it left the lit-
tle ‘girl badly crippled in the legs and
‘there is grave fear that she may nev-
«er be able to walk.

years, for legal separation from his
wife, Eleanor Louise Keller Moritz,

Monday morning that the general
Schedule of class work wag begun.
The Academy and student houses are
comfortably filled so that a good
school for the year is assured. Among

"The Johnstown Tribune issued a
‘64-page edition, last Saturday, in
celebration of its 75th anniversary.
dn addition to its regular news sec-
tions two sections were devoted to a
brief history of the paper from the
days of its swaddling clothes up to
its present metropolitan standard,
and to the history of Johnstown and
its leading industries. The Tribune
is one of the leading papers between
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and in
most of its features stands on a par
with the city newspapers. Its regular
afternoon edition consists of anywhere
from sixteen to thirty-two pages and
with a circulation of well onto 35,000
it covers Cambria and Somerset coun-
ties to the smallest village. Close to
one hundred men and women are em-
ployed in its making, among the num-
ber being Edward L. Gates, a for-
mer Bellefonte news paperman, who is
telegraph editor on the Tribune.
Today marks the beginning of
Clyde A. Smith to Build Government
- Telephone Line in Colombia,
South America.
| Clyde A. Smith, who in the days of
the old Commerical Telephone com-
pany was head lineman and general
all around mechanic, but who since
the merger with the Bell company
has been living at Centre Hall, jn
Tuesday signed a contract to go to
Colombia, South America, and con-
struct a government telephone line
across practically the entire length of
the country, a distance of from 800
to 1000 miles. The story of how
“Skip” came to be picked for the
job sounds almost like a romance.
When the government of Colombia
decided to build the line the officials
naturally turned to the United States
for equipment and a contracting firm
to do the job. After diligent inquiry
‘and investigation the contract wus
| finaily awarded to Stromberg & Carl-
ison, of Rochester, N. Y. Then the
| latter firm began to look around for
ian all-around man to take charge of
the job. They found plenty of spe-
cialists, men who could string a line
land men who could install an ex-
change but not a man who was mas-
ter of all. Finally they appealed to
+a well known telephone technical en-
iigneer for information as to some
{ man who would fill the bill. ;
The engineer told them he knew of |
but one such man in the United States
land gave them the name of Mr.
Smith. Consequently a representa-
tive of Stomberg & Carlson came to
Bellefonte on the hunt of Clyde and
locating him at Centre Hall went
there and induced him to take the
That it is some job is evidenced by
the fact that it is estimated it will |
take in the neighborhood of five years :
to do the work. Mr. Smith will not |
only have charge of stringing fhe
line but installing and equipping the |
various exchanges. According to the |
company’s representative a large por- .
tion of the line will be underground |
cable. At some points exchanges will |
be one hundred miles apart, while in |
the more thickly populated districts |
they will be as close as twenty-five
As the contractors are anxious to
begin the work as soon as possible
Mr. Smith will probably leave about
the first of October for Colombia.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Gross Located
in Los Angeles, Cal.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Gross, of
Bellefonte, are now located in Los
Angeles, Cal., where they expect to
make their future home. Harold is
a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Gross, .f
Bellefonte, and is a plumber and
steam fitter. He learned his trade
with Thomas Caldwell and later
worked for Walter Eberhart. Final-
ly he decided to go to the Pacific
coast and on Monday, September 3rd,
he and his wife went to Hollidaysburg
and took passage on one of the Grey-
hound busses which runs between
New York and Los Angeles.
The fare for the transcontinental
trip is $62.50, which does not include
meals enroute. The busses, however,
are equipped with a kitchenette
where any foodstuffs purchased by
passengers can be prepared for eat-
cushions and they are so arrang-
ed that they can be placed in a re-
clining position and make a very com-
fortable couch while traveling st
night. The schedule of the bus is so
arranged that stops of anywhere
from twenty minutes to five hours
are made enroute, and yet such good
time is maintained that Mr. and Mrs.
Gross landed in Los Angeles in just
six days from the date of leaving
ing. All the seats have rubber air,
Mr. Gross has had several letters
from his son since he landed in the
California city. In the last letter |
Harold stated that he had not yet
landed a job, but was looking over the
city and felt confident that he would
be at work within a week.

Grand Jury for September Court in
Session This Week.
The grand jury for the September
term of court convened nn Monday
morning, Ray Bragonier, of Philips-
burg, being appointed foreman. On
the docket is a list of sixty cases, but
bills of indictment will not be pre-
sented in all of them. It is probable,
however, that thirty or more cases
will be ready to be heard.
In fact the Centre county jail was
crowded over Sunday, there being
thirty-one prisoners. The court re-
lieved the situation, on Monday, by
imposing sentence upon five escaped
convicts, but their removal to Pitts-
burgh still left the sheriff with a
family of twenty-six to lcok after.
One of those is a woman, Mrs. L.
B. Perkins, of Washington, D. C., ar-
rested several weeks ago on com-
plaint of Mrs. Wagner, of Howard,
for failure to pay a $28 board bill.
While that was the only action
brought against the woman it is un-
derstood that she also owes board
bills in Bellefonte and other places in
the county. These she incurred while
working in the capacity of a book
agent, in which she was not very suc-
The grand jury completed its work
on Wednesday afternoon. Out of 63
bills of indictment prepared by the
district attorney 38 true bills were
found, ten were ignored and 15 with-
The jury, in its report, condemned
the Centre county jail as antiquated
and recommended the building of a
new and modarn jail. If this cannot
be done numerous repairs and alter-
ations were suggested. Conditions
in and about the court house were al-
So condemned as unsanitary and re-
pairs and a general cleaning up
should be done at once.

Auto Collision at Port Matilda.
About eleven o’clock on Sunday
morning a Nash tourning car bearing
license tag C81-093, containing two
men and a woman was on its way
west on the Bald Eagle State high-
way. At the cross roads in Port Ma-
tilda the driver failed to regard the °
red light signal with the result that
the left rear wheel of his car was hit
by an Oakland roadster driven by
Charles Wentzel, who had with him
three ladies. The wheel of the Nash
car was smashed and the machine al-
most upset. The bumper on the
Wentzel car was knocked off, For-
tunately no one was hurt aside from
shock. The driver of the Nash car
admitted that he was in the wrong
and volunteered to pay for all dam-
ages. The crossroads in Port Matil-
da is regarded as a dangerous point
and all drivers should approach it
with care,

Bellefonte Appealed to For Money,
Clothing and Supplies.
Urgent appeals from the offices of
the National Red Cross, in Washing-
ton, have been sent to burgess Hard
P. Harris, of Bellefonte, for aid to
the sufferers in Porto Rico, and else-
where, caused by the terrific West
Indian hurricane which swept over
the Islands and across Florida in the
beginning of the week, leaving a trail
of death and destruction in its wake.
At this writing upwards of three hun-
dred people are known to be dead and
it is feared the total many exceed
double this number, while property
damage is estimated at more than one
hundred million dollars. The first ap-
peal sent to Bellefonte was under
date of September 15th, and was as
Hard P. Harris, Chairman:
“West Indies hurricane destroyed
thousands of homes in Porto Rico and
other Islands, devastating crops. Im-
mediate need for food, shelter, medi-
cal supplies and emergency relief.

of President Coolidge. Need for
large fund imperative. Please give
widest possible publicity this appeal
and notify public your chapter will
receive and forward to national head-
quarters all contributions. Wire ac-
tion taken. Initial donation made $50,-
000 from national funds. Baker and

The second appeal, received on
Tuesday morning, follows:
Hard P. Harris, Chairman.
“Latest reports Porto Rico and Vir-
gin islands indicate increasing de-
mands upon Red Cross for emergency
relief and rehabilitation, with grow-
ing prospects further needs from
Florida and other southeastern States.
President Coolidge today, by proclam-
; ation, called for generous contribu-
- tions to Red Cross West Indies hurri-
cane relief fund to care for all areas
affected. Information too incomplete
to enable us to state total amount
‘needed, but clearly evident Red Cross
faces serious responsibility, and your
i present effort would be at least com-
parable to your effort at the time of
: Florida relief campaign in 1926.
There can be no question as to the
; urgent need for help, not only on the
i Island of Porto Rico, but along the
| entire path of the hurricane. Money
clothing and all kinds of non-perish-
able contributions should be given as
quick as possible. Contributions of
money should be sent to Charles M.
McCurdy, treasurer of the Bellefonte
branch of the Red Cross, while con-
tributions of clothing, ete., should be
sent to the Y. M. C. A.

Five Escaped Prisoners Sentenced on
i Monday Morning.
Five prisoners who escaped from
Rockview penitentiary at various
‘times entered pleas of guilty before
morning, and were given the sentence
prescribed by law. Before pronounc-
ing sentence Judge Fleming told the
men that when they were taken back
to Pittsburgh to make it known among
the prisoners there that if any of
them are transferred to Rockview
i they had better be content to stay
i there and not try to escape. The men

Pennsvalley Sportsmen to Post Lands
Against Hunters.
{ Just 238 landowners and sportsmen
attended a meeting at Millheim, last
| Friday evening, to discuss the best
methods to overcome the slaughter of
!does during the two weeks of the
i deer hunting season in December. The
; Sentiment of all those present was
unanimous in opposing the game
! Commission’s ruling that only antler-
less deer may be killed during the
season. It was finally decided that
[te only way to combat the ruling is
"for landowners to post lands against
! hunting, and this it was decided to do.
Included in the membership of the
| Pennsvalley Sportsmen’s Associa-
‘tion are owners who have title to
‘more than five thousand acres of the
best hunting lands on the mountains
iin lower Pennsvalley. All these are °
to be posted. Other organizations
: throughout the county are also fall-
(ing in line on posting lands, and if
| the good work is continued the thous-
‘ands of hunters from all over the
i State who have sent to county treas-
i urer Lyman L. Smith for the special
doe license will find no place to hunt
when they come into the county on
I the first of December.

der’s Exchange is now located. The school

i needed supplies there and it was a very
popular place, especially the week before
valentine day. The valentines then were
almost entirely comics and cost a penny
each. There were not many pennies in the
pockets of the youth of that day so that
a lot of us often wondered how several
boys in the school were able to put so
‘many in the box we had as a post-office
there. Years later one of them, in recit-
ing incidents of our school days, told us

—On Saturday an old acquaintance,
whom we hadn’t seen for years and years,
dropped in to see us. It was J. G. Packer,
of Burrows, Pa. Perhaps that doesn’t
mean much to most of you, but some
know that Packer is a very well known
name down about Howard. It was “Gib”
who came to see us and he was a great
character in his early days in Centre
county. Years have mellowed the rough
and ready woodsman and good fortune
followed his going to McKean county
where he has supervision of getting out
the wood for a great chemical mill. He
and his son George decided they would
take a little motor trip, so they just got
out the Buick, stepped on the gas and
came down to see a few friends in Centre
county. ¢
——The remodeling of the cornice
on the Heverly-Harter-Parish block,
on the northeast corner of the Dia-
mond, is going to add very material-
ly to the appearance of the structure.
It does much toward relieving its
severity and squattiness.

——A new finish to the front of
the Mingle shoe store room, on Alle-
gheny street, is in exceedingly good
taste and very appropriate for a
store carrying a quality stock.
