—The Bellefonte Presbyterian Sun-
day school picnicked at Hecla park,
Iast Friday, which in itself is merely
& current news item, but an interes:-
fing fact in connection therewith is
that Charles Gilmour was amory
those present. And this is news. be-
cause it was his first visit to the park
since his last trip as engineer on old
Ne-has-sa-nee in October, 1918. when
the Central Railroad of Pennsylvania
passed into history. Naturally Mr.
Gilmour could hardly reconcile the
park of today with the more natural
eonditions that prevailed there eleven
years ago.

-Mr. and Mrs. Myron M. Cobb
have received the gratifying an-
nouncement of the promotion of their
son, Arpeld C. Cobb. The young man |
graduated at State College with the
class of 1924, in the mechanical en-
gineering course, and within ten days
had gone to work for the Nickel
Plate railroad in the company’s
roundhouse, at Conneaut, Ohio. His
job was that of trouble hunter and
‘first aid repair man on crippled loco-
motives. There was no high-sound-
ing title to the position but it was
one of decided importance in keeping
the rolling stock in proper condition
Mr. Cobb did his work carefully and
thoroughly and the result is that he
has been promoted to night foreman
of the company’s big shops and
roundhouse, at Indianapolis, Ind.
Last Thursday evening a party
of gentlemen, which included two cap-
tains in the ranks of State highway
patrolmen, were standing on the
pavement in front of the uptown A. &
P. store when an automobile stopped
on the opposite side of the street, in
front of the Bellefonte Trust com-
pany. Two men got out and started
across the street towards the Brock-
erhoff house. In the middle of the
street one of them stopped suddenly
and made a grab at his coat tail with
both hands but he missed it and a
quart bottle slipped from under his
coat and crashed to pieces on the
pavement. Neither of the men stop-
ped to mourn the departed but with
guickened footsteps made their way
across the street and into the hotel.
The license tag on the car showed
it to have been from Williamsport.
At a brief session of court, on Sat-
urday morning, Andrew DeBrino, who
escaped from Rockview penitentiary
‘on December 21st, 1925, and was
“brought back to Centre county from
the federal penitentiary, at Atlanta,
Ga., on Thursday, was brought be-
| fore Judge Fleming for sentence. De-
Brino was originally sentenced in
Erie county for eighteen months to
four years for larceny and receiving
stolen goods. Following his escape
from Rockview he made his way into
' West Virginia where he was arrested
rand convicted under the Mann act as
a white slaver. He was sent to the
federal penitentiary at Atlanta and
officials of Rockview, learning of his
where-abouts, lodged a detainer
against him and when his time was
up brought him back to Centre coun-
ity to answer to the charge of break-
ing and escaping. Judge Fleming
imposed a sentence identical with his
original one.
Probation officer Roy Wilkinson
presented the petition of Carson Rice
for parole from the Allegheny work-
house. Rice, with Ernest Leitch
and David Shade, all of Clinton coun-
ty, were arrested early in February
on the charge of stealing chickens
from Centre county farmers, the
prosecutor in the case being Willard
Yearick, of Marion township. Mr.
Wilkinson told the court that from
his investigation he believed that
Price had been inveigled into the
chicken stealing trip by Leitch; that
so far as he could learn he had al-
ways been a good citizen and had
made but one trip with the men; that
of the one hundred and fifty chick-
ens stolen Price got only
his share of the loot. He has a wife
and four children and because of the
family needs his support. The men
plead guilty after their arrest and
Price has served about five months
of his sentence. The court granted
the parole.
The next case called was that
against Charles T. Noll for failure to
obey an order oi court to pay $75a
month for the support of his wife.
Noll was arrested in Washington, Pa.,
over three weeks ago and has since
been in the Centre county jail. Mr.
Wilkinson told the court that he was
first arrested in December, 1927, on
a non-support charge and at that
time he voluntarily offered to pay $75
a month to his wife, but in the twen-
ty months that have elapsed he has
paid only $45. In his own defense
Mr. Noll told the court that he had
done the very best he could do. That
the company he had been working for
at Homewood had gone under and he
was out of work for awhile, and had
only been at work at Washington
eight days when arrested. Judge
Fleming told him that he had no pa-
tience with men who failed to proper-
ly support their wife and children,
and he was going to see that they did
it while he is on the bench or he will
send them to the 'Allegheny work-
house and the money they earn there
will be turned over to the wife. Con-
sequently, Noll was remanded to jail
until he can devise some means of
giving bond to insure compliance with
the court order.
William Reed, who has been in jail
for some weeks for failure to provide
for the support of his children, was
granted a parole on condition that he
pay $15 a month towards the support
of his three youngest children.
Already the razing of “Old Main”
at State College has gotten under
way and the roof and part of the
| fifth floor have disappeared. Its de-
molition brings to mind that Charles
Callahan, the architect of the origin-
(al building, once lived in Bellefonte
several of which are still standing.
He built and occupied what was
later called the Philip Gephart hoine
which stood on the site on Allegheny
! street now occupied by the residence
tof the late Dr. W. U. Irwin.
It would seem ‘that his fancy ran
to red brick with marble trimmings
for he designed the Judge Hals
home, now the property of Col. J. L.
Spangler, as well as the present Ma-
sonic Temple. The original “Arcade”
that stood where the Bellefonte Trust
Co’s building now stands, was also
designed by Callahan. It was sup-
ful building in Bellefonte at the time.
After it was burned Thomas Reynolds
took the marble steps in its approach
and used them as steps to his resi-
dence on High street. That is now
the property of Dr. David ‘Dale and
the steps are still there.
An interesting side light on these
incidents is the fact that Callahan
| was really a tailor. We have been
unable to ascertain whether he car-
ried on the work of an architect while
making clothes or whether he aban-
doned the latter work when he took
up building design.
-——The board of governors of the
Centre County Motor club have set
Thursday, August 15, as the day
for the annual’ picnic .for all Centre
county motorists. Invitations will be
mailed to each registered car owner
in Centre county, and as there are
over 8000 registered pleasure car
owners in the county, that will un-
doubtedly be the biggest party to yet
be staged at Hecla park, the play
ground of Centre county.

The State Association of Prothon-
otaries held its annual convention in
‘Bellefonte on Wednesday and yester-
day. The association is young in
years as it was only organized last
year at a meeting held in Allentown
and’ this may account for the small
attendance this year, as only sixteen
counties out of sixty-seven in the
State were represented, and four of
them were by women officials. These
were Mercer, represented by Daisy T.
Morse; Venango, by Mrs. Squires;

and amendments the same were

at five dollars.
The treasurer presented his first
, annual report which was approved

The meeting then resolved into a
. general form for discussion of ques-
tions of vital importance to prothon-
|otaries. Among these were the arbi-
| trary power of salary boards in fixing:
salaries of clerks, in which the clerk
has the right of appeal if he doesn’t
[think the salary commensurate with
{the ‘work, while prothonotaries are
denied such right. They contended
that the present fee bill was out of

It was the sentiment of the meet-
ing that a legislative committee be

of the prothonotaries at the next
meeting of the Legislature.
S. A. Homan, who farms what is
known as the Bucher Ayres place
near Pennsylvania Furnace, had two
rather unpleasant experiences last
While harvesting his grain the
binder was drawn over a nest of
young ringneck pheasants. Before
they were noticed several were killed
and some injured so badly that they
had to be killed.
Later the same binder was driven
So the only thing to be done was kill
it. 2
Some time ago the men on the
Mary W. Meek farm, in the same
neighborhood, were crossing a field
when they discovered a nest of ring-
neck eggs. As one of them was brok-
en they figured that the hen would
not go back to the nest so they took
the eggs to the barn and put them
nnd they had quite a flock of little
pheasants. All lived but a few and
now they go to the woods to roost at
night but return every day to be fed.

The Centre County Sheep and Wonl
Growers Association pooled their
wool on Friday and Saturday of last
week. The wool was purchased by a
mill in Philadelphia.
year consisted of a total of 12,462
pounds of wool. Out of this amount
there were 694 pounds of rejections.
The wool was graded into four
grades; quarter, three-eighths, fine
delaine and rejections. The grading
was done by W. H. Henning and W.
B. Connell, of State College. Accord-
ing to W. B. Connell, sheep extension
specialist, who has graded the wool
for the Centre county pool for sever-
al years, the wool handled this year
was in much better condition than h
had ever handled before. :
The Centre County growers feel
that by selling their wool on the pool
plan in a cooperative way usually
means from 5c. to 6c. per pound in-
crease in price and the association
through this system of handling wool
has demonstrated the value of put-
ting the product on the market in
first class condition.
A record for inmates was establish-
ed at the Centre county jail, Jast
Friday, when, for a few hours, it had
thirty-seven prisoners within its
walls. It was so overcrowded, in
fact, that when officers arrivad here
with Andrew DeBrino, an escaped
Rockview penitentiary convict
brought back from the federal prison,
at Atlanta, Ga., there was no avail-
able cell in which to put him and he
was taken to Rockview and kept
there until brought into court, for sen-
tence on Saturday.. :
The release of several prisoners on
Friday and parole of two others on
Saturday relieved the overcrowded
condition, but at that the number of
inmates is above the normal.
Plans for the proposed addition to
the jail are now in the possession of
the State Welfare Departmen: and
they will have to be approved prior
to the award of the bids on August

While no papers have been execut-
ed at this writing it looks as if “Edge-
fonte,” the Garman family summer
home at Axe Mann, might be the final
selection as headquarters for Troops
C and D, State highway patrol.
During the week Major W. G.
Price, Capt. J. M. Bender, of the
newly formed Troop D and Capt. H.
N. Keller, of Troop C, have ‘been in
Bellefonte and inspected every place
offered and the one most adaptable
for headquarters for the patrol is
Edgefonte, at Axe Mann. The house is
~ located right along the main State
highway leading from Bellefonte to
State College, Lewistown, Lewisburg,
and points east. It is advantageous-
ly situated for ease of approach as
well as constant vigilance on quite a
stretch of highway.
The house contains thirteen large
rooms, six on the first floor and sev-
en on the second. The large spring
in the front yard furnishes an abund-
ance of water which is forced into the
house with an automatic electric
pump. If Edgefonte is selected a
heating plant will be installed and
that is about all it will need to put it
in shape.
Edgefonte, which has been in pos-
Session of the Garman family for nigh
: onto fifty years, is well onto one hun-
dred years old. It was built by a
member of the Mann family as a
home when Mann's axe plant was one
of the flourishing industries of Cen-
tre county. It was occupied by the
Mann's until J. Fearon Mann moved
ito a home in Bellefonte and after
ithat the property at Axe Mann was
purchased by the Garmans.
More than half the Bellefonte boys
who went to Camp Wapalanee, on
Wednesday of last week, are having
such a good time that they have de-
cided to stay the second week. The
! camp, located along Bald Eagle creek,
{about three miles below Howard, is
| very much of a success and the boys
' accord hearty words of praise for the
; management. But the real hero, in
the eyes of all the youngsters, is Kel-
ly, the cook. He it is who provides
the edible provender to satisfy the
rapacious appetites of the boys run-
ning wild, and that’s some job.
! Boys who joined the camp this
week were James Rogers, Bob Witter,
Earl Heverly, Billie Brown, Daniel
Thompson, Thomas Caldwell, Jack
‘Shope and Robert Guisewhite.

of them and a grand time for all.
