Grove Mills Academy was held on
the Academy grounds, at Pine Grove,
last Saturday. Capt W. H. Fry, 88
years young, and the dean of the
clan, was the busiest man at the

fortable as the hot weather would
The morning was spent in social
intercourse and renewing old ac-
quaintanceships. At 12.30 o'clock
long tables on the grounds were

cake was baked by Mrs. J. M. Kirk-
patrick, who had it decorated with-88
tiny candles. Rev. S. B. Brown in-
voked the divine blessing and prompt-
ly thereafter the gocd things began

At 2.15 o'clock the assemblage was
called to order and in the absence of
Rev. J. S. English the Hon. J. Laird

guson township and the interest he

B. Brown and C. C. Shuey. Letters

and others. Four generations of
the Fry family were in attendance.

of the Academy, the oldest of whom

the class of 1861. Following isa list

~ emy from the time it opened in 1851

KEW GARDENS CLOSED
BY ORDER OF COURT.
At a special session of court, on
Wednesday morning, Joseph Labarto
plead guilty to two indictments for
violation of the liquor laws. On
one indictment he was sentenced to
pay the cost of prosecution, $500
fine and placed on probation for
three years. An order was also
made closing Kew Gardens as a pub-
lic house. Sentence was suspended
on the second indictment upon the
payment of costs.
Lester Glass plead guilty to the
charge of larceny and was sentenced
to pay the costs, a dollar fine and
spend thirty days in the county jail.
Bertha McKinley was brought in-
to court for violation of a parole
order and was sentenced to serve

During the past week the Super-
ior court handed down a decree af-
firming the order of the lower court
in refusing the petition of Angelo
Genua for the release of his son,
John Anthony Genua, from Polk In-
stitue. The decree, however,
qualified with the suggestion that if
the parents were willing to bear the
expense, and the lower court deem-
ed it wise to do so, they could send |
the boy to Philadelphia for exami-
nation by specialists to determine
the exact nature of his physical and

CATHAUM OFFERS MARIE
DRESSLER IN “POLITICS.”
In this politically-minded age, with
rival ‘candidates clamoring for the
| popular vote in every part of the
‘land, it is our opinion that
will be only one candidate to sweep
the nation. And she is a woman.
We refer to Marie Dressler, eccentric
dowager of the screen, who comes
to the Cathaum Theatre, State Col-
lege, next Monday and Tuesday in
her latest laugh hit, “PoMtics.”
Marie shows the men folks some
innovations in political campaigns
and when she lines up the woman
vote, she takes no chances! You will

ed out by Miss Dressler. She is

edy, there is a romantic story car-
ried throughout the picture.

in the book. If it has no. been

“THE GREAT LOVER”
STATE COLLEGE MAN
KILLED BY OWN AUTO.
Donald Allen, steward at the Nit-
tany Lion Inn, at State College, was
crushed to death by his own car
shortly before six o'clock on Tues-
day morning. He left the College
about 5.30 o'clock to drive to Boals-
burg in his Ford coupe. About six
o'clock laborers on their way to
work found him dead under his
overturned car at the Branch school
house. There is a sharp right hand
turn at that place and he evidently
failed to make it, with the result
that his car skidded, turned over on
it's side and he was caught beneath
it. Coroner W. R. Heaton made an
investigation and deemed an inquest
unnecessary, death having been
home was in New Haven, Conn. He
was 33 years old, a World war vet-
eran and unmarried. The remains
were sent to New Haven for burial.
