SINGER AND SONG.
Written by Will Truckenmiller, of
Opportunity, Washington, in memory of
Mrs. Winifred Meek-Morris.
The Singer closed her weary eyes,
“Folded her hands upon her breast,
And loving watchers softly said:
“She is at rest.”
But the sweet songs that she had sung
Went traveling down the long, long
To comfort many a grieving one
And calm their fears.
To bring to trembling, cowering souls
A new-born courage, strong and high,
And bid them lift their downcast eyes
Toward the sky.
To bring sweet hope where was dispair,
To charm the racking pain away
To teach a love and faith and trust
. As clear as day.

' MANY FARMERS ATTEND
Interesting Reports Presented by
County Agent R. C. Blaney and |
That the farmers of Centre coun:
ty have reached that point where,

the annual meeting of the Agricul-
tural Extension Association, held in
the court house on Saturday. Over
250 farm people were present, which
included 65 4H club-members.
The president, C, E. Peters, of
Stormstown, called the meeting to
order at 10 a. m. in the main court
room. The morning session included
the financial report and general
business. The main features of the
morning session were reports given
by county agent, R. C. Blaney, and
home economics agent, Miss Jean
Alexon. These reports brought out
the importance of agricultural ex-
tension work and the way it fits in-
to the general scheme of agricul-
ture in Centre county, Approxi.

planned and developed in all parts
of Centre county, which includes 11

centers, through which the work is
conducted. 158 meetings with an
attendance of 20,856 were conducted
in agricultural . work. At these
meetings demonstrations were given
showing the improved agricultural
practices. Talks were given at]
which various agricultural subjects |
were discussed and recommendations '
made that those present could take.
home and apply in their own farm
operations. It was pointed out that
the purpose of agricultural exten-.
sion work is to make available for.
anyone in Centre county the latest
developments and improved prac.
tices in agriculture.
The main projects conducted dur-
ing the past year in home economics
work, according to Miss Alexon, have ,

leader, gave a very interesting talk
on “What club work means and is
doing to boys and girls, not only in
Centre county and Pennsylavnia but
all over: the Unitéd States.” He
emphasized the fact that 4H club
work has been the means of many
boys and girls determining their
vocations, He also explained that
it gives the boy or girl a financial
interest and an opportunity to learn
the possibilities of agriculture before
he reaches the age where he decides
whether he will continue on the
farm or go into industry.
Prof. W. R. Gordon, who is in
charge of rural sociology extension

and put up a fine game. Temple's
first score was made in the sec-

With a record of 24 years
and one day's service W. Scott
Meese will go on the retired list as
a rural mail carrier out of the
Bellefonte postoffice, effective No-
vember 30th, having - reached the
retirement age of 65 year. All
of his service was not in Bellefonte
as he worked at State College nine
years before coming to Bellefonte
fifteen years ago. During his al.
most a quarter of a century of
service Mr. Meese stuck to the
horse and buggy as his means of
transporting the mails, the only
carrier in Bellefonte who has done
so. During his twenty-four years
he has traveled almost 200,000 miles,
or almost eight times around the
world, and has used in his work
six horses . He has always been one
of the most faithful carriers in the
service. His retirement makes the
fifth within two years, the others
being John C. Bair, E. E, Ardery,
John F. Garthoff and William
