seems more like a cross between the
regular black walnut and the English
walnut than a pure strain of the lat-
ter. The shell, while smooth and al-
most the shape of an English walnut,
is very dark and about as thick and
hard as a black walnut. The meat in
the nut has somewhat the flavor of
both the English and black walnuts.

Council Arranges to Meet Entire Is-
sue of $93,000.
| Monday was a real, genuine April
Fool's day for Bellefonte borough of-
ficials. The mails during the day
brought to the Bellefonte banks a
total of $73,000 of the $93,000 bond is-
sue which matured that day and not
one of the present councilmen realiz-
ed that the maturity date was at
hand. Fortunately the borough sink-
ing fund amounted to $75,643.60,
which was ample to take care of all
the bonds which came in that day and
financial arrangements were made to
pay the balance of the issue as it
comes in for redemption. This
"action was approved at the regular
i meeting of borough council on Mon-
day evening. The bonds were issued
in 1899 to redeem an issue of $100,000
placed in 1893, and carried the low
interest rate of 3% per cent. They
were mostly held in Philadelphia and
New York.
Every member was present at the
meeting, on Monday evening, except
Messrs. Reynolds and Brouse. Fire

check for $25.00 from the citizens of

Communications were received
from W. B. Rankin and Mrs. B. O

reasonable share of the borough in-
surance. The $25,000 policy on the

{ was approved by council.
i The Finance committee reported a
balance of $3939.74 in the hands of
the borough treasurer and requested
the renewal of notes aggregating
$13,200. The committee also asked
that an order be drawn in favor of
the borough treasurer for $1651.90 to
pay the semi-annual interest on the
borough bonds. Official report was
made of the receipt of borough bonds
for redemption and as the sinking
fund is short $17,356.40 of the amount
required to meet all the bonds the
treasurer was empowered to borrow
sufficient money to pay the bonds as
they are presented.

The high wind of Monday afternoon
| and night did more or less damage in
, Bellefonte and throughout the coun-
ty, the most serious of which, so far
as has been learned, was the tearing
off of the southwest corner of the
slate roof on the Presbyterian chapel,
jin Bellefonte. From five to six hua-
dred feet of the roof was torn off,
| pieces of slate being carried out into
the street.
Down at the Maurice Runkle home
ithe wind tore off a small corner of
| the front porch roof.
Down at Milesburg, it is reported,
The Street committee reported va- | the wind blew the top off of an open |
{ Ford car standing on the street.
Throughout the county fences were
blown down, limbs torn off of trees,
and telephone and electric wires put
out of service, temporarily, but most
of the trouble was overcome by ten
o'clock that night.
' When he went to work at the Cen-
tre Democrat office, on Tuesday
morning, Homer Sprankle parked his
car across the street, near the Elks
home. Along about nine o'clock two
men nonchalently climbed into the
car and drove away. They came
down High street and drove north on
Water street toward Milesburg.
When Sprankle discovered that his
car was gone he notified chief of po-
lice Hary Dukeman who at once tele-
phoned Tyrone and Altoona police of- |
| ficials to be on a lookout for the car.
| About five o'clock in the evening a
| telephone message was received from
! Altoona stating that the car had been
found there, having been abandoned
ion a side street by the car thieves,

be from Ohio, and probably contin-

The dead body of Mrs. George Se-
pos, of Kato, was found in Beech
Creek, early Sunday morning by
boys playing along the banks. At
first it was feared she was the vic-
tim of foul play but evidence pre-
sented at a coromer’s inquest, the
was an accident. Mrs. Sepps was
about 65 years old and lived alone at
Kato. She leaves two sons, Stephen
and Lewis Sepos, of Cleveland, Ohio.
Burial was made in the Askey ceme-

A family dinner was served at
the home of Ellis C. Howe, in Philips-

All Efforts to Locate His Where-
abouts Have Thus Far Been
The whereabouts of Andrew R.
McNitt, a prominent business man of
Bellefonte remain undiscovered. Liv-
ing or dead, he has apparently dis-
appeared so completely and myster-
iously that notwithstanding the com-
bined efforts of relatives and busi-
ness associates to locate him not a
single trace had been found up until
yesterday. >
Several suggested clues have been
run down only to find that they had
no foundation in fact. Efforts to
trace, through officials of the Penn-
sylvania Railroad company, the
route Mr. McNitt may have traveled,
after leaving Bellefonte, through used
mileage book coupons, have so far
been unsucessful. Report was made
several days ago that he had been
traced as far as Harrisburg in this
way, but the report lacks confirma-

‘his name and description have been

‘him through his affiliation with the

As the for nigh onto half a century is no 'anywhere he had letters and papers

ample means of identification, and

institutions of any kind strengthens
the belief that Mr. McNitt has been

that it cannot be traced.
A federal postoffice building now
seems an assured fact for Bellefonte,
though it will not be built this year.
Postmaster John L. Knisely has re-
ceived a communication from Con-
gressman J. Mitchell Chase in which
eh enclosed a report of the committee
in charge of public building projects
and calls attention to an item on page
11 in which is allotted $95,000 for a
i postoffice building in Bellefonte.
| Congressman Chase says this is the
first definite step towards assuring
Bellefonte a federal building, and
there is a good possibility of funds
being appropriated during the regular
session which will convene in Decem-
ber, 1929, and that you may all re-
joice in seeing a building in Belle-
fonte within a reasonable time after
the next session of Congress.

most earnest efforts in furthering
the cause of a postoffice building for
