and Thomas Hosterman and will
‘take possession tomorrow. The new
“proprietor is not a stranger in the
‘business as he was formerly baker

— Last Friday Mr. and Mrs.
George A. Miller took their son
Jack to an Altoona specialist for
the removal of a 22-calibre bullet
rom his right knee, where it has
“teen lodged ever since he was ac-
cidentally shot about six weeks ago.
“The operation, on Saturday, reveal-
«2d that the bullet had moved a per-
ceptible distance from its original
‘focation as shown in the X-ray
photos taken at the Centre County
hospital, but it was finally located
and removed. As no definite partic-
gilars have been received it is not
mnown whether the removal of the
hrillet will result in a permanent
wecovery without affecting the knee
joint or not, but it is hoped that
smch will prove to be the case.
The crippled children’s clinic held
at the Philipsburg State hospital,
Thursday of last week, under the
direction of the State Welfare De-
partment and sponsored by the Cen-
tre—Clearfield Crippled Childrens’
society, was largely attended. Dr.
Galbraith, the orthopedic surgeon of
Altoona, arrived at the hospital at
7:30 a. m., and was kept busy un-
til leaving at 7:30 p. m. He also
had the assistance of other doctors
and nurses. During the forenoon
four operative corrections were made
and five casts applied. In the after-
noon sixty cases were examined.
Many of the children were conveyed
to the clinic in private cars.
May 31st marked the end of an-
other year of the crippled childrens’
work, During the year nine regular
clinics were held and nine follow-
up clinics. Thirty-five operative cor-
rections were made, seventy-six casts
applied, fifty-seven new cases ex-
amined, four hundred and forty-nine
cases re-examined and thirteen braces
In spite of the economic depres-
sion which has resulted in the cur-
tailment of charitable contributions
the support of the clinic has been
very commendable. The total re-
ceipts of the year, from various
sources, were $1190, most of which
came from Clearfield county and
only $3.50 from Centre county. The
expenditures were close to $1700.
With the small balance carried
over from the preceding year, $476
paid toward the examining clinic
fee by the State Welfare Depart-
ment, the expenditures were not
quite covered, but an early contri- |
bution of $50 from the parents of
one child and a check for $150 from
the Rotary club, of Philipsburg, met
all the expenses outside of the hos- |
pital. The hospital contributed
$7,161.40 worth of free treatment. |
The society feels that in view of |
present conditions the record of con-
tributions was very good. The officers
most earnestly thank the clubs and |
individuals who have contributed so
generously toward the work. Both
the contributions of time and money
are greatly appreciated and, the con-
tinued interest and support of these
and others who may wish to help
is earnestly solicited.
The officers of the society are
Senator Harry B. Scott, president;
Mrs. Philip B. Reed, vice-president,
and Anna W. Lauman, secretary-
Automobilists who passed by the
Rockview penitentiary farms, early
Sunday morning, witnessed the un-
usual spectacle of five self-binders
busy in the wheat fields cutting
down the golden grain and Crews
of inmates following after stacking
the sheaves in shocks. With a
stand of over one hundred acres of
wheat, all ripening at the same time,
penitentiary officials were compelled
to utilize every minute possible in
order to harvest the big crop and
get it in with the least possible
loss; though it is quite likely that
Sunday’s rain storms stopped the
work for that day.
The wheat crop on the peniten-
tiary farms is exceptionally good '
this year; in fact, it is generally
good all over the county. Up in
Ferguson township farmers report
a 95 per cent. crop, which is about
as good as most any farmer can
expect. When it is considered that
for two years past the farmershave
had only about a fifty to sixty per
cent crop, this year’s yield is
gratifyingly large; the only draw-
back at present being the low
price with no prospect in view of
any great increase.
Under an Act of the Legislature
passed in 1929, failure to pay taxes
will mean the sale of your property.
Tax collectors make return of all
properties on which taxes have not
been paid by May 1st, of each year,
to the county commissioners. Cen-
tre county collectors returned in the
neighborhood of 960 properties. Up
to this time fifty owners have come
to the front and paid up, while 908
properties are advertised this week
by county treasurer Lyman L.
Smith for sale on the first Monday
in August,
The only way farmers and prop-
erty owners will have of keeping
their homes from being put up for
sale is to settle for the taxes due
and costs, which have already been
added. Of course they have the al-
ternative of bidding in their own
homes at the sale in August. It is
a most drastic law, but as long as
it is the law there is no way to get
around it.
Six hundred dollars in cash is
the first prize that is being offered
for a quart jar of canned food by
the Household Science Institute. It
is conducting a national home can-
ping contest and jars of fruit, veg-
etables or meat may be entered.
Last year Mrs, Mary Hvass, a farm-
er's wife of Kennan, Wisconsin, won
the prize with her jar of green peas.
The contest will close on October 1.
A sample jar, carton and entry
label can be secured, free of charge,

Contest, Shenandoah, Iowa. Here's

| Country club, Friday evening,
| BE. Esty,
a chance for Centre county canners.
Attention, Please
The Watchman’s subserip-
tion list was corrected last
Saturday. Everyone whose
remittance had reached us
by that morning should find
the label on this paper
reading just to the date he
or she has paid.
Look at yours, please. If
there is any mistake in it
advise us now when correc-
tion can be made without
hunting up records later.
Inasmuch as many from
whom we were expecting
remittances failed to re-
spond to our appeal of sev-
eral weeks ago we presume
we will have to forward bills
to them. We had hoped to
avoid such labor, since it
is so easy to look at the
label, and figure out the
amount due.
If anyone should owe
more than they can con-
veniently pay at this time
any part of the amount
will be most acceptable.
Suppose only a thousand
of our readers should mail
us $1.50 on a certain day
that would make - $1500.00
and $1500.00 working capital
would save us many mo-
ments of worry as to
where the next Saturday’s
pay roll is to come from.

Major John C. Gotwals, graduate
of The Pennsylvania State College
in civil engineering in 1906, has
been assigned as Engineer Commis-
sioner of the District of Columbia
to relieve Col, William B. Ladue.
The District of Columbia has the
commission form of government, ad-
minstered by three commissioners,
one of whom has to be an engineer.
Maj. Gotwals was born in Penn-
sylvania in 1882 and after his grad-
uation practiced his profession until
he entered the army four years
‘later. In the summer of 1917 he
was assigned to the 1st Engineers
and went to France where he re-
mained until December 1919. For
exceptionally meritorious and dis-
tinguished service in France he was
awarded the Distinguished Service
medal: In 1920 he was assigned to
duty as president of the Board of
Road Commissioners of Alaska and
was also assistant district engineer
of the Juneau Alaskan district. Upon
his relief from duty in Alaska, Maj.
Gotwals was assigned to duty in
11924 as district engineer of the St.
Louis district which duty he has
neld until the present date. Twen-
ty-five years from graduation into a
| District of Columbia Commissioner
is a fine stride, isn’t it?

Huckleberry pickers on all the
mountains in Centre county are
having a nice time of it this year,
because the berry crop is one of
the best in a decade and rattlesnakes
are practically nil. The writer has
interviewed quite a number of pick-
ers and not one of them has so far
encountered a rattler, though one
of them, Cyrus Shope, did run
across and dispatch a three foot
Of course the berry pickers have
no regrets as to the absence of
snakes but we are prone to wonder
what the Rattlesnake club of the
State College forestry students will
{do without their annual feast of
rattlers. And how about the old
woodsmen in the Alleghenies who
capture the rattlers for skins and
snake oil?
So far no one has been able to
assign any good reason for the
scarcity of the snakes, and it may
be that the race is gradually dying
out with the persistent encroach-
ment of mountain settlements.

The new grill room at the Mark-
land hotel, on Spring street, has
been completed and furnished and
will be opened for public service on
Wednesday, July 23. The room is
exceptionally light and airy and de-
lightfully pleasant, The furnishings
and equipment, both in the kitchen
and grill room are most com-
plete in every detail and compare
very favorably with the hotel proper.
The room is large enough to accom-
modate about forty guests comfort-
same kind of meals and service at
The Markland that has made the
Brockerhoff house so popular to the
public under his management.
With the opening of the grill The
Markland will be sure to increase in
popularity, especially to that class
of travelers and guests who appre-
ciate a stopping place far enough
removed from the noisy marts of the
business section to preserve a de-
gree of quiet, and yet close enough
that any store in town can be
reached in a few minutes.
At the regular monthly meet-
ing of the Central Pennsylvania
Rabbit and Cavey Dealer's associa-
tion, held in the Y. M.C. A. at
Jersey Shore two weeks ago, it was
definitely decided to stage a big
rabbit show in Altoona on October
14-16. Half a dozen or more breed-
ers in Centre county are members
of the association,
The show will include different
varieties and breeds, colors and fur
specialties, including the massive
giants. Provision will be made for
a large list of prizes, including
silver cups, cash and ribbons.
of the foremost judges in the coun-
try will be secured to place the
awards. The next meeting of the
association will be held at Mill Hall
on Saturday, July 26th.
Please be notified that all prop-
erties returned to the Treasurer's
office of Centre county for non.
payment of taxes, and particularly
the taxes returned for 1929, are ad-
vertised for sale on Monday, August
