fluke, either. George Brown pitched
the entire game for Bellefonte and

tive at the bat than ever before, mak-
ing hits when they were needed to
produce runs.

College, had a hearing before 'Squire
J. L. Tressel, at Pleasant Gap, for a
minor violation of the motor laws.
He was fined $10 and costs or ten
days in jail. He refused to pay and
said he'd go to jail. The justice made
out a commitment, gave it to him
and told him to take himself to jail.
Hoy did, but after presenting the
commitment to the sheriff and
Tooking the jail oven he said he be-
Iieved he’d go back and pay. the fine,
which he did.
«She was only a slip of a
girl but she was mad from the top
of her head to the tips of her toes,
then she invaded the court house,
fiday afternoon, on the ‘hunt of
some one to run down the driver of
an automobile who had run against
her and knocked her down the day
previous. She said she wasn’t hurt
all, but she’d “be darned if any
automobilist was going to knock her
down and get away with it.” She
had the number of the offending
driver’s license tags and was advised
to communicate with the State high-
way patrol.
At a session of court, on Saturday
morning, W. D. Zerby Esq., present-
ed a petition for the release, on pa-
gheny county workhouse. Long was
sentenced on February 26th, 1929, to
pay a fine of $200, costs of prosecu-
tion and imprisoment in the Alle-
gheny workhouse for not less than six
months nor more than one year, after
he had plead guilty to a violation of
! the liquor laws. . In presenting the
has served five months of his min-
imum term, has been a model prison-
‘er and his wife and family needs his
support. District attorney John G.
Love opposed the granting of the
parole ' because of Long’s record in
the past. He told the court that ear-
ly in 1928 he had been arrested for
stealing hides, but the hides were re-
covered and the ‘case never reached
court. Later he was arrested for
furnishing liquor to prisoners at
Rockview penitentiary but he hid be-
hind his wife's skirts by claiming
that she made the sale. He was ar-
rested early this year on a similar
charge, plead guilty and was sen-
tenced as above stated. “Parole re-
fused,” said Judge Fleming.
Probation officer Roy Wilkinson
presented. a petition for the parole
of Robert A. Hendershot, of State
College, from the county jail, Hen-
dershot was sentenced on May 22nd
to pay a fine of $200, costs of pros-
ecution and imprisonment in the
county jail for a period of three
months, after he had entered a plea
of guilty to operating a motor car
while under the influence of liquor.
Mr. Wilkinson told the court that
Hendershot was in the draying busi-
ness, at State College, and had a
regular clientele of twenty or more
fraternity houses and other places
from which he removed ashes and
other refuse; and that there is
danger of his losing this work if he
is not back on the job soon. He
also stated that Hendershot had
agreed to pay the fine and costs ip
installments as soon as he got to
work and earned the money. The
court granted the parole.
Philip Johnston presented the plea
of Russell E. Cable for release from
the county jail. Cable was brought
before the court on May 16th for
failure to support his wife and three
children and was sentenced to pay
$25 a month, give bond for faithful-
ly complying with the court’s order
and stand committed until the sen-
tenced was compiled with. Mr. John-
ston told the court that Cable ask-
ed release so he could go to work
and earn some money, and that he
hoped to be able to furnish bond in
a few days. Judge Fleming stated
that he would give him five days in
which to furnish bond and failing
to do so he directed that Cable be
taken to the Allegheny county work-
house for a sentence of not less than
six months nor more than one year.
Charles T. Noll was again brought
before the court and stated that he
had not yet been able to furnish
bail, as required when he appeared
before the court a week previous.
The court stated that he had care-
fully conisdered his case and had de-
cided to reduce the court order for
the ‘support of his wife from $75 to
$50 a. month. He gave him fifteen
days in which to furnish bond and if
the same has not been filed at the
taken to the Allegheny county work-
house to serve a sentence of six to
twelve months.
During the early summer months
deer from Brush mountain have been
visiting the farm of Harry Long,
near Fiedler, and feeding to some ex-
tent on his crops. Just how much
damage they did is not known but
Mr. Long thought it sufficient to
watch for the deer. Some ten days
or two weeks ago three deer came in-
to his field, a doe and two bucks. One
of the latter was a regal animal and
is believed to have been the “Daddy
Buck” that so many hunters have
tried to shoot during the past few
i years of buck-killing. Lying conceal-
ed within easy range Mr. Long had
no trouble shooting the buck. It
proved to be as big as it looked and
had six points on each antler, but
they were still covered with velvet.
John McCoy has a little farm on
the point of Bald Eagle mountain
where he raises the usual run of farm
crops. He has seen plenty of evi-
dence that deer were pasturing in his
fields but the amount of damage they
are doing is not large. One day recent-
ly he and his farmer also saw three
deer in the field and the farmer was
strong for shooting them, but John
declared against it. In fact he made
it very plain that every man in his
employ is to protect, instead of kill-
ing the deer.

Persistent rumors are abroad that
the Pennsylvania Railroad company
jis contemplating another drastic cut
role, of Ernest Long from the Alle- jn the train service to and out of
Bellefonte. One rumor has it that
i the one and only passenger train now
{ operated on the Lewisburg branch is
to be cancelled, which would leave
all of Pennsvalley and Buffalo valley
| without any’ passenger service. But
its effect on State College, especially .
| the most. serious part of it would be
| . Bellefonte, .
at the opening and closing of school
terms and at vacation periods. :
Another rumor in effect is that the
{ morning train from Tyrone which
reaches Bellefonte at 9:40 and
‘reaches here on the trip west from
i Lock Haven at 5.02, is to be removed.
While it is true that passenger traffic
lon these trains is not heavy, only
“during the school term when some
| forty or fifty High school students
from Bald Eagle valley use them reg-
ularly every day. yet it is the one
train that brings the western mail
and express to Bellefonte in the
| morning and the Harrisburg and Wil-
liamsport papers in the evening.
It is understood that superintend-
ent H. H. Russell, in charge of the
Williamsport division, and who also
j controls the Lewisburg branch and
, the Bald Eagle as far west as Vail,
favors dropping the above trains, if
he has not already actually recom-
mended it, but whether the company
will decide to do it remains to be
While passenger traffic to and
from Bellefonte, on the above trains,
might not be a paying proposition,
Bellefonte as a freight feeder to the
Pennsy is the best paying station
along the line, and it would seem as
(if the company, as a corporation,
‘would not readily enter into any un-
| dertaking that might “kill the goose
that lays the golden egg.” And ey-
I ery curtailment of railroad service to
‘and out of Bellefonte is just that
"much of a retrograde movement to
, feudal times. .
For this reason it is to be hoped
that the company will very carefully
| consider the question from all angles
before any more trains running into
Bellefonte are taken off.
On Monday afternoon water sup-
| erintendent J. D. Seibert opened the
flood gates at the head of the race in
; order to obtain an accurate measure-
| ment of the water power of Spring
| creek at the Gamble mill flume. With
the gates open practically the full
volume of water flowed down the
| race with the result that the water
(in the creek opposite the Watchman
, office sank rapidly to a low level.
‘an attraction to strangers visiting

| began to go down they became ‘very
jtauch agitated. Quite a number of
them lost no time in swimming down
stream but the big bulk ‘of them
swam back and forth between the
bridge and the falls, evidently testing
the depth of the water and when the
stream finally stopped falling they
parently content that the stream was
not drying up.
for some weeks past we had been
| harboring a suspicion that some one
was surreptitiously swiping the big
trout from Spring creek. There
didn’t seem to be as many of them
there as there were early in the year.
But the lowering of the stream. on
Monday, shows the suspicion to have
| been without foundation. There were
;hundreds of trout there but they
i couldn't be seen heretofore because
they were out in the stream where
the water was too deep and cloudy
to see them.

during one of the coolest
perienced in the month of July,
in this section of the State, in many
years. Cool weather prevailed most of
last week but thermometers reached
their lowest level, Saturday morn-
ing. In Bellefonte they were down
zero, but only slight traces of frost
were noticeable here.
In some sections of the county,
however, there was a very decided
frost, which not only nipped vege:
tables but did considerable damage to
gardens. Reports of damage done
came from the Snow Shoe region,
Stormstown, Gatesburg and Fergu-
son twonship. On Tadpole the K gar-
den of Mrs. Lydia Sunday was al-
most entirely ruined, beans, toma.
toes, cucumbers and flowers being
badly blighted.
It was the first frost the writer
can recall in July since the year 1880
when a frost on July 2nd practically
ruined the corn crop in Centre coun-

The near approach of the time for
taking another census has inspired a
movement for a “greater Bellefonte,”
‘by the annexation of all the surround-
ing suburbs; and while no preliminary
action has yet been taken some def-
inite proceeding will be inaugurated
in the near future, according to a well
known ‘Bellefonte attorney. :
It is a well known fact that there
are very few good building sites re-
maining within the boundary lines of
which is just one mile
square. It is also a well known fact
that all the suburbs are practically de-
pendent on Bellefonte for their water
supply. The people living therein en-
joy the use and privilege of Belle-
fonte streets, they go to the town’s
churches, have access to the Belle-
fonte High school and in a great
measure are dependant on Bellefonte.
If all these people lived within the
borough limits it would give the
town a much higher rating in census
As tentatively proposed the bor-
ough lines would be extended to take
in Coleville on the west, north to in-
clude Ed Haupt’s place and east as
far as the Beaver farm. On the
south the line would be extended to
include the Forge House, thence
across to “Burnham,” the Valentine
farm and west as far as the Jewish
cemetery and north to take in all the ;
houses on Halfmoon hill.
Just how residents of Spring town-
ship would feel about being annexed
is not known at this time. So far as
the valuation of improved property
for taxable purposes is concerned
there is very little difference between
properties in the borough and out of
it. While the tax milage in Belle-
fonte is a little higher than it is in
Spring township there is not enough
of difference to prove a stumbling
Should such a movement be car-
ried through to a successful issue it
would make very little change in the
political complexion of the enlarged
borough. It would still be normally
Republican but with a fighting chance
for any good Democrat who might
aspire to office.
John Winklosky, who has been a
resident of Bellefonte the past four-
teen months, left Bellefonte, on Sun-
day, with thirty-five dollars in his
pockets on a hitch-hiking trip to Flor-
ida, through the southern States to
the Pacific coast, up the coast States
to the great Northwest and through
the northern States east and home.
He doesn’t know when he’ll get there
but he is on his way.

early twenties, came to Bellefonte
from Clarion, Pa., in May, 1928, to
work for the West Penn Power com-
pany. In fact he worked for the
company before coming here. He
took the job at the solicitation of his
mother and against his own ‘inclina-
tion, as he had a yearning to hie
forth and see something of the Unit-
ed States. But after he got to work
he just hated to quit. Then he was
sent to Bellefonte. The change in lo-
cation satisfied him for a time but
this spring the longing for the road
broke out afresh.
And just here we want to say that
Two months ago he gave notice
that he was going to quit and last
week his name was emasculated from
the West Penn payroll. The young
man has saved quite a sum of money
but it is not his intention to useitin
his great adventure. That is the rea-
son he took but $35.00 with him.
When his funds show signs of run-
ning low he intends going to work;
and he will not be particular as to
the kind of work he does, just so it
; yields financial returns. When he has
fifty dollars to the good he’s going to
continue his exploit.

The annual picnic and festival of
the Pine Hall Lutheran Sunday school
will be held in the grove at that place
on Saturday, August 3rd. This has
always been one of the big picnics, in
that section of the county, in former
years, and there is every reason to
believe it will be up to the standard
this year. While many people will
take baskets of provisions, those who
do not wish to do so can purchase
sandwiches and coffee on the grounds.
