dergo a most decided change. The
latest announcement is the retire-
ment from business of Sim, the
Clothier, whose big closing-out sale
opened . yesterday. Mr. Baum has
not been in good health, of late, and
this is assigned as his reason for
closing out. The room he now oc-

ner of High and Spring streets,

plants in season.
The White brothers have also
started work toward converting the
rooms on the west side of the first

An impression has gotten around
among some of the tax collectors of
Centre. county that a law passed by
the last Legislature abolished their
office and that hercarter all taxes
will be collected by the county treas-, This is a mistake, as no sch
law was passed.
For some years past there Yas
been considerable agitation in favor
of the enactment of such an act,
and bills to this effect have been be-
fore the Legislature but they have
never heen enacted into a law.
A bill ‘was passed, however, which
provides that tax collectors who are
unable to collect all taxes may turn
over the uncollected portion ‘of their
duplicate to the county commission-
ers who in turn will certify the same
to the county treasurer, whois then
empowered to advertise the list of
unpaid taxes in two county papers,
make sale of the properties and pro-
ceed to collect the taxes in much ‘he
same manner as heretofo:e provided
for unpaid taxes on unseated lands.
But on such taxes tho collector will
receive no commission,
Official announcement was made,

Fifty-one stockholders
the employees of the Farmers
National Bank gathered at the Nit-
tany Country Club Tuesday after-
noon to hold their annual meeting
and enjoy the dinner that followed.
While the men were in the ma-
jority there were enough: women

atmosphere of a pleasant party than
that of a cold business discussion.
and all of
President Reed O. Steely presid-
ed at the meeting and W. M.
Bottorf was the secretary... After
the statement of the bank's: condi-
tion was read president Steely ad-
dressed the stockholders on bank-
ing conditions in general and the
progress their institution had made
during the year. The facts reveal
ed were such as to inspire every
confidence and much hope of the
future of the flourishing young in-
After the ballots had been cast
for the new board of directors and
while the tellers were doing the
counting a general discussion, a
sort of question and answer period,
was made the order of business. It
developed the fact that the stock-
holders of he Farmer's National
bank are an interested and earnest
lot of men and women who are
determined to help keep their in-
stitution on the sound basis it now
stands. A significant and impres-
sive substantiation of that spirit is
shown in the position the bank has
attained in only two years without
any high pressure exploitation what-
ever, It has moved forward con-
tinuously without any special ef-
fort to secure business.
The result of the ballot was the
re-election of all members of the
old board of directors.
Then the party retired to the
dining room and a most sumptuous
dinner was served. The food was
so good and the spirit of satisfac-
tion engendered at the meeting was
so apparent that the atmosphere
became that of a great family din-
ner. In fact it was so enjoyable
that the guests lingered at the
‘tables for an hour and a half and
many of them remained at the
club until well into the evening.
The First National held its annual
meeting in the directors room of the
institution with Charles M, McCurdy,
its president, presiding, As might
have heen expected his statement to
the stockholders revealed a satisfac-
tory condition of the affairs of this
splendid financial institution.
All of the old directors and officers
were re-elected,
Residents of Bellefonte were much
excited, Wednesday morning, when a
report got abroad that the four
bandits who: blew up the pay car
of the Glenn Alden Coal company,
in the mountains near Wilkes-Barre
on- Monday, had been in ‘Bellefonte,
on Tuesday, 'ate ‘their dinner at the
Brockerhoff house, inquired the way
to Clarion, ‘Pa., ‘and were arrested
there on Tuesday night, - Some :of
the stories were elaborated to the
effect that they had held up a‘gas
station in Bellefonte and robbed . it
of $2000.
Investigation revealed the fact
that four men, ‘all of whom were
of foreign parentage; stopped ‘atithe
Brockerhoff- house about 1:30 o'clock
on ‘Tuesday afternoon and - got
luncheon. They: were all: well -dress-
ed and registered from New. York.
After eating dinner one'of : the men,
who + did most of the" talking; : in-
quired where he could: buy ‘some
postcards and was directed to « the
Index. : He: went there, - got some
cards: and mailed them, The man
then: inquired: the road to Clarion
and was given explicit directions,
after which they paid their bill and
jeft.: =
During the afternoon State high-
way ‘patrolmen appeared at the
Brockerhoff “house and inquired re-
garding the four men. He was
furnished all information possible
and left. Wednesday morning word
reached Bellefonte that the men had
heen arrested in Clarion on Tues-
day night.
While ‘it is possible the men are
the bandits wanted it hardly sounds
plausible that they -are. On ‘their
brief stop in Bellefonte they made
no effort to cover up their trail
but left it as wide open as possible,
and one thing is certain, they did
not rob a Bellefonte ‘gas station of
two thousand dollars.
The Bellefonte Mothers’ Club met
at the home of Mrs. Earl Hoffer, on
east High street, last Monday even-
ing and enjoyed a most Interesting
There were fifteen members pres-
ent to hear the papers that were
read and enter the open forum that
followed. Mrs. Ralph Blaney discus-
sed the subject of “Habit,” Mrs, Earl
Musser followed with a’ thesis on
“Correcting Bad Habits in Children”
and Mrs. Samuel Shallcross’ contri-
bution was a paper on “Fear.” All of
them were timely and exceedingly in-
Following the formal meeting the
hostess served refreshments and the
balance of the evening was spent in
a social way.

The Bellefonte Academy’s impres-
sive boxing team will swing into ac-
tion again this (Friday) evening

town Y. M, C. A. boxers. The bouts

+ holder of the Academy's -115 1b.

1b. class, Paul Buckley and “Chic”
O'Day, stars of the Academy in that

boys are pleasing performers in the
ring, ard there are plenty of thrills
awaiting the fans in these two bouts.
In the 135 1b. class, Dan McCabe's
ability and punch will be pitted
against Paul Stump, of the visiting
team, The Academy boxer has had
plenty of experience in amateur cir-
cles and carries a hard wallop. This
bout should stand on a par with any
other bout on the card.
Another local youth will be seen in
action in his first ring encounter.
Phil Taylor, former High school lad,
now attending the Academy, will
tackle young Tangle, of the visitors,
in the 145 1b class. Phil is a natur-
al fighter and is no novice when it
comes to hitting ability. Should he
unleash his mitts, tonight, there will
be a new ring star for local fans to
talk about,
Another bout in the 145 lb class
brings “Duke” Ducanis, popular
leather pusher, into the ring. “Duke”
will oppose Jimmy Schmit, of the
visitors, and expects to win impres-
sively, as he has been training con-
scientiously since the close of the
football season.
In the seventh and last bout on the
card, Lou Procino, 160 1b upholder of
the Academy's colors, will meet
“Bill” Haines, of the neighboring

er and always assures the fans
plenty of action.

ing to oppose the local battlers, fans

action. The price of admission will
be $1.00. :
The meet will start on the minute
at 8:30, Ladies are welcome and will
find boxing an interesting sport.

For Dr. Frear. as , yice-director and
chief chemists of the Pennsylvania
Agr icultural Experiment Station at
State College from its organization
in’ 1887 to his deah in 1922, rose to
a ‘commanding position in the United
States in his profession. In his 37
years of service at the college ‘he
became an authority on questions
involving food - chemistry, fertilizers,
lime, and tobacco. Being one of the
pioneers on food standards and in
pure food legislation, he was select-
ed as chairman of the committee on
food standards for the U, S.Depart-
ment of Agriculture by Dr. Harvey
W. Wiley when that branch was or-
ganized, and also helped to frame
the pure food laws of Pennsylvania,
At the annual meeting of the
Farmers’ Mutual Fire Insurance
company, held in Bellefonte on Mon-
day, all the old officers were re-
elected for the ensuing year. The
ieport of the secretary, Frank M.
Fisher, showed a decided increase in
business during 1929 over that of
1928, and that the company now has
close to six million dollars worth of
business in force.
The Farmers’ Mutual was estab-
lished in 1857, almost three-quarters
of a century ago, and never was re-
quired to undergo a State examina-
tion until last year, which was made
obligatory by a law enacted at the
last session of the Legislature. The
examination was made in October,
when three examiners went thor-
oughly into the affairs of the com-
pany. When they had completed
their work they stated that it was
one of the best managed, and gave
it one of the highest financial ratings
of any company in the State.

Grace Rine, of west High street.
—Mrs. Sarah Lemon, who is teaching
the school at Yarnell this year, was in
town, Saturday, on her way for a week
end vigit with relatives and friends at
State College and at Rock Springs. She
said she is enjoying her school work out
there very much but is frightened nearly
to death every time she has to drive her
car over ‘‘The Divide.” That hill is a
high one, especially to one who hasn't
done much traveling in ‘‘the Ridges.”
—Frank M. Fisher, of Centre Hall, was
in Bellefonte, Monday, in attendance to
his duty as secretary of the Farmer's Mu- |
tual Fire Insurance Co., that met here
that day. Mr. Fisher retired from active
business some years ago, at least that is
what he thought he was doing, but as he
is one of the kind of gentlemen who takes
an interest in everything and lends a
helping hand everywhere he sometimes
finds himself much busier than he was
when he was actually in business.
—Jasper R. Brungart, of Rebersburg, '
treasurer of the Farmers’ Mutual Fire
Insurance company, and who is now
well along toward eighty years of age,
is away on a trip around the world.
He left home on January 6th and does
not expect to return until about the
first of June. Before he left he stated
that as a boy at school he had always
been taught that the world was round
but never had time to investigate it un-
tii now so was taking the trip to find
out for himself if it really is.
—John S. Rowe, of Centre Hall, was
a Bellefonte visitor last Friday and fa-
vored the Watchman with a very pleas-
ant call. Mr. Rowe is Centre Hall's
plumber and as a side line has been act-
ing very satisfactorily as assessor over
there for some four or five years. Form-
erly he had been a salesman for stone
crushing machines, but met with an acci-
dent that so handicapped him physically
that he was compelled to give up travel-
ing. Besides his other accomplishments
Mr. Rowe is a Democrat of Democrats.
—Former County Commissioner,. James
W. Swabb and Frank Wieland drove
down from Linden . Hall, Monday morn-
ing. Mr. Wieland came to attend, the
annual meeting of the Farmer's Mutual
Fire Insurance Co., of which he is a
director, while Mr. Swabb merely came
along to have a few hours with friends
in town. And as might have heen ex-
pected he devoted most of them to
talking politics with friends. Jim thinks
the Democrats will have a great chance
in Pennsylvania this fall if they get
together and stick together.
—H. C. Angell, of Rush
was a Watchman office visitor, on Tues-
day, having come to Bellefonte to make
his annaul returns as assessor to the
county commissioners. Mr. Angell has
township for
eighteen years and the fact that he
never has to put up a fight for the
office speaks for itself in the matter of
placing a fair valuation on .properties.
Mr. Angell has covered Rush township
so many times in pursuance of his |
work that he knows almost ever stone
in it, and there’s quite a number of
them there.

Tuesday morning, with a pleasant call by |

ty years of age with a mind and intellect
almost as clear as a young woman cf
forty. Notwithstanding the fact that she
is four score and ten years old she is
a great reader and every morning goes
through the columns of the Philadelphia |
Record and every Friday morning looks
forward to the arrival of the Watchman
which she has religiously perused for |
more than fifty years without a break.
—.J. Milo Campbell, of State College,
spent Monday in Bellefonte; having
come down for the annual meeting of
the Farmer's Mutual Fire Insurance
Co.. of which he is a director. In talk-
ing of the farm situation Mr. Campbell
expressed views that sounded rather |
pessimistic, but when we countered with |
the suggestion that certainly farms |
must pay some else he couldn't have |
retired to a fine home at the College
he replied that in any other line of en-
deavor, if he had put in the same ener-
gy and study as he did on the farm he
would have expected to be just as well
situated as he finds himself today. And
that, we should say, is the gist of the
farm situation. If a man has the will to
farm and the intelligence to direct that
will to the most profitable branches of
farming the chances are he will not
land in the poor house.
