Mysterious Visitors Excite Mill Hall
: Real Estate Owners.
Mill Hall real estate owners are all
het up over the mysterious visit
there, recently, of three men who
claimed to be real estate operators
of Philadelphia. They were accom-
panied by two photographers and
took data and pictures of the site
of the old axe factory which was de-
stroyed by fire more than a year ago;
pictures of the land, the dam, the
house formerly occupied by the mill
superintendent, the never-failing
spring nearby, the site of the old
woolen mill and its water power
rights, the Mann Edge Tool company
holdings and the railroad spur which
is owned by that company and the
Bellefonte Lime and Stone company,
and its connections with the New
York Central railroad.
The men departed without making
known the purpose of their work, al-
though it is reported that they did
intimate that their investigations
might result in something good for
Mill Hall, industrially.

entertained by the State College Ro-
tary club at a dinner at the Centre

introduced county agent R. C. Blan-
ey who briefly reviewed the work of
the club, introduced the youthful
lamb feeders and their parents, and
presented ribbons to the winners in
the county round-ups.

third year of lamb club work in the
county. A year ago at the State
farm products show in Harrisburg,
the reserve grand championship was
won by Jane Vial. At the show last
month the Centre county club clean-

Ribbons were awarded at the meet-

Awards were as follows: Lee Homan,
first; Fred Luse, second; Clarence
Hoy, third; James Campbell, fourth;
Donald Campbell, fifth; Alice Foust,
sixth; Edward Bitner, seventh;
Charles Harter, eighth; Floyd Weigh,

P. C. MacKenzie, superintendent of
livestock at the college, who judged
the lambs at Harrisburg, stated that
they were the most uniform, best
conditioned group of club lambs that
he had judged in the past ten years.
As a feature of the program W. B.
Connell, sheep and wool extension
specialist at State College, presented
an illustrated talk on the various
breeds of sheep and modern methods
of flock management.
After the program the club boys
and girls held a short business meet-
ing at which Fred Luse was elected
president and James Campbell, sec-
retary-treasurer. Messrs. Blaney,
Connell, and W. L. Henning, of the
college department of animal hus-
bandry, made short talks. Plans are
being laid for another lamb club this

Ace Hammer Mill.

a MiraclesAce hammer mill in their
mill in this place and expect to have
it in operaton by the 15th of néxt
While the Wagner mill here is one
of the best ‘equipped in: the country
the management has been more or
less hampered because of lack of fa-
cility to grind feed rapidly enough
to meet their standard of service to
the trade.
The new mill will have a capacity
of three tons per hour, and when it
is operating it is hoped that before
the farmer who takes grain to the
mill has seen the last of his raw ma-
terial leaving his wagon or truck
the first bags of his feed, perfectly
ground, will be swinging out to be
loaded up.
Many farmers who are buying pat-
ent feeds might find it greatly to
their own profit to have their own
corn and oats ground. Because Wag:
ner & Co., will add all the meals de-
sired, grinding and making the mix
at a very trifling cost.

Evangelist Boone Holding Successful
Meetings at United Brethren
What promises to be one of the
best revivals in the history of the
United Brethren church is now in
progress with evangelist C. E. Boone
preaching. The hundreds in attend-
ance every night is proof that his
sermons are of the nature of those
preached by the Apostle Peter when
men were caused to cry out “What
must we do to be saved?”
Regardles of what church you are
a member, or if you have never held
membership in any church and are
anxious to get better acquainted with
God, or if you are in search of a Sav-
ior and want to know Christ and His
power to forgive sins, then you are
welcome to these meetings. You will
find the evangelist to be a kind and
sympathetic friend in his message or
in rendering personal aid at the close
of services. Rev. Boone has had
fourteen years in the fields as an
evangelist, and has been instrument-
al in leading hundreds of souls to the
place of acknowledging the truth of

ample room for all branches of the
service to camp at one time, and
where the soldiers could make all the
noise they wanted to without disturb-
ing anybody.
