‘villages, towns and cities.

kle was broken in three places—a
double fracture of the large bone
and a single fracture of one of the
smaller bones.

of the recent meeting of the Woman’s
Club of this place was crowded out
of last week’s issue the Watchman
failed to comment on the talk Dr.
Wm. Van de Wall, of the State Wel-
fare Department gave the club, Itis
rarely that we hear so much favor-
able comment on such addresses as
came to our ears following Dr. Van
de Wall's visit here. He seems to
have so thoroughly interested his
auditors that they were practically
a unit in declaring his talk one of

Fred Horner, the Victim, Died With-
in Half an Hour.
Fred Horner, of Millbrook, Col-
lege township, was the unfortunate
victim of a tragic shooting accident,
on Tuesday afternoon, when he was
shot in mistake for a deer by his
twin brother, John Horner, of Col-
yer. The brothers were members of
day hunters from Colyer and vicinity
who were hunting on Sand mountain,
in the Seven mountains. They were
both on the drive, Fred being on the
flank of the team with John next
in line. Fred got a little ahead of
the other drivers as well as closer
than the original formation.
When about two thirds of the way
over the mountain John saw some-
thing moving in the underbrush. In
his excitement he mistook it for a
deer and after covering the moving
object with his gun held his aim for
some seconds hoping to get a sight
of the supposed deer’s head to deter-
mine whether it was a buck or doe.
In the belief that he had seen a pair
of antlers he shot. Hastening to the
sopt he was horrified to discover
that instead of a deer he had shot
his brother Fred. The bullet enter-
ed the man’s back and came out
through the abdomen.
Others members of the hunting
party were hastily summoned and
preparations were made to bring the
wounded man to the Centre County
hospital but he died within half an
hour, before he could be brought out
of the mountains, and his dead body
was taken to his home at Millbrook.
The victim of the accident was a
son of George and Catherine Horner
and was born near Colyer a little
over thirty-seven years ago. During
the past year he had been employed
on the farm by John Bathgate, at
Millbrook. Over fifteen years ago
he married Miss Margaretta Rockey,
a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. F.'
Rockey, of Colyer, who survives with
eight children, ranging in age from
14 years to 6 months, as fellows:
Martha, Walter, Mary, William,
Doris, Ward, Lois and Betty, all at
home. He also leaves his mother
and the following brothers and sis-
ters: Mrs. Clyde Stemm, of near
Pine Grove Mills; Mrs. Cyrus Con-
fer, of State Colege; Edward Hor-
ner, of Lemont; Rev. Charles Horner,
in Dauphin county; Samuel of Tus-
seyville; John, of Colyer; Bruce, of
State College; Harry, of Millbrook;
Earl, of State College, and Mrs. El-
mer Dashem, of Tusseyville.
Funeral services will be held in the
brick church, at Tusseyville, at 9:30
o'clock this morning, by Rev. Keen-
er, of the Lutheran church burial
to be made in the Tusseyville ceme-
Max Ward, of Baileyville, is in the
Centre County hospital with a bullet
wound in the right ankle. He was
with a party of hunters in the moun-
tains near Pine Grove Mills when
the accident occurred. The men were
standing around a fire, at noon on
Monday, eating their lunch. A shot
rang out nearby and the bullet hit
Ward on the right ankle, richocheted
on striking the bone and coming out
through the flesh entered the right
knee of William Clair, of Juniata,
who was standing next to Ward.
Clair was taken to the Altoona hos-'
pital and Ward was brought to the
Centre County institution.
LeRoy Ralph Krepps, of Spruce
Creek, was killed, on Tuesday morn-
ing, by he acidental discharge of his
own gun while hunting in the moun-
tains near his home. He was
29 years old. and leaves a wife and
small son, his mother and a number
of brothers and sisters.

Pilot Thomas P, Nelson, flying the
night airmail from New York to
Cleveland, has been missing since
Sunday. night and the general belief
is that he was killed. in a .crash in.
the mountainous sections of western
Pennsylvania during a violent snow
Nelson made a stop at the Belle-
fonte field on his western flight and
checked out at 11:15 p. m. That was
the last definite trace of him al-
though Brookville reported that the
plane flew over there about on time
and it is also reported that he was
heard at Clarion and even west of
that point, Failing to reach Cleve-
land searching planes were sent out
early Monday morning and the
search has continued every day
since, by planes in the air and hun-
dreds of men on the ground.
The searchers have naturally been
handicapped by the cold weather
and snow, tut the hunt will be con-
tinued until the missing plane and
pilot are found. If Nelson was not
killed outright in the crash but bad-
ly injured he would have perished in
the cold long ere this. .
Col. Charles A. Lindberg joined
the searchers yesterday. Flying from
New York he reached the Bellefonte
field between four and five o'clock
yesterday morning, remaining there
until 5:24 when he left for the west-
ern part of the State. The N. A. T.
has offered a reward of $5000 for
the finding of the missing pilot,
Nelson was found yesterday after-
noon at 1:30 near Chagrin Falls, 35
miles east of Cleveland. He had
jumped from his plane and was dead
when found.

For the fourth time in little more
than three years the Bell Telephone
company of Pennsylvania will on
January 1 introduce a schedule of
reduced rates on various types of
out-of-towh calls, it was announced
today by J. H. Caum manager for
the company here.
The new schedule will be featured
by reductions of from five to ten
cents on the day rates for station-
to-station calls between points from
60 to 300 miles distant. Station- to
station calls are calls for a telephone
by number or otherwise, on which
the calling party does not ask the
operator to locate a particular per-
son. Day rates are in effect from
4:30 A. M. to TP. M.
“It is estimated that telephone
users throughout Pennsylvania will
be saved approximately $525,000 an-
nually through introduction of the
reduced out-of-town rates” Mr.
Caum said, “while in the Bell Sys-
tem throughout the United States
more than $5,000,000 yearly will be
Out-of-town rates were reduced by
$3,000,000 by the Bell System on
October 1, 1926; by $1,500,000 on
December 1, 1927, and by $5,000,000
on February 1, 1929, Mr. Caum
pointed out.
The January 1 rate reduction of
$5,000,000 will thus bring the total
yearly saving to telephone users
throughout the Bell System to $14,-

——Among ‘the many cases of

of the sudden zero weather the
worst we have heard of was in Un-
ionville where the hot water heating
system, water pipes, kitchen range
and bath room tanksin the home of
H. E. Holzworth were practically all
ruined the latter part of last week.
Mr, Holzworth was in West Virginia
hunting and Mrs. Holzworth motor-
ed down to bring him home. She
had expected to be gone only two
days and past experience assured
her that the furnace well banked
would keep the home warm for that
length of time. They didn’t get
home until the third day and then
found everything frozen. Out of the
fourteen large radiators in the house
only enough sections were not burst-
ed to assemble three good ones from.

no worse in his affiliation than . we are
in ours. And, besides he wears his pol.
itics so suavely that acrimony never
has a chance to enter into his contacts. He
enjoys the game, however, and since he
has worked himself into a position where
he doesn’t have to sit up nights driving
the wolf from his door we wouldn’t be
surprised if he were to ‘‘can” business
some of these days and go in for the
fun that there is in politics if one’s de-
sires lean that way.
