    Bellefonte, Pa., August 28, 1931.
Last week a bevy of Bellefonte
girls, members of a certain Sunday
school class, were in camp along
the Bald Eagle creek between Miles-
burg and Curtin, the young lady
teacher of the class going down to
spend the evening and nights with
them. On going to the camp, Wed-
nesday evening, she noticed some of
the girls “sneaking” down along the
creek. She followed at a safe dis-
tance until she saw them camp on
the ground when she unconcernedly
walked up to them. The girls were
seated around a small spring in
which they had discovered a cache
of six bottles of beer and one of
them was armed with a can opener
which they were going to use to
pry the tops off the bottles in order
to sample the liquid. The teacher
confiscated the can opener and led
her charges back to camp.
question is, who put the beer in the
spring ?
Bellefonte's big spring is an at-
traction that never palls on the pub-
lic. Some days ago an auto load
of tourists stopped and after quak-
ing their thirst at the drinking
fountain went inside to take a look
at the spring. One of the women
had a poodle dog on leash and she
was trying her best to coax the dog
to go down the bank and take a
drink out of the spring when coun- |
cilman J. C. Jodon happened along.
Did he tell the woman what to do
with the dog? We'll say he did,
and she didn't like it alittle bit, but
the dog didn’t lap the water, at any
Several Sundays ago a certain
Bellefonte woman went to church,
the first time in several months, but
she didn't enjoy the very able ser-
mon, not even a little bit. In the
pew in
known Bellefonte
back of his neck was one
bugs which do their best
night. When it became active the
man would make a pass at it with
his hand and the bug would makea
buck-dart under his collar. In a
few minutes the bug would come up
from hidden depths and again go to
work when the man would again
try to kill it. It was fear that the
bug might be knocked off onto her
own clothing that kept the woman
on tenterhooks during the entire ser-
Last Saturday morning residents
on east Howard street discovered a
young girl crouching among the tall
weeds of an uncultivated lot in that
locality. When the girl discovered
that she had been seen she made her
way out of the lot and started out
Howard street. Two women follow-
ed and overtaking the girl took her
back to the home of one of them.
She had on a light, filmy dress, no
stockings and said she had spent
the night out among the weeds in
the lot because she had no where to
Bellefonte to get work but so far
had been unable to get a place. The
woman gave the girl breakfast and
some clothing. It later developed
that her home is at Paradise,
and she had run away. In faci,
has a habit of running away from
home frequently. While it was
probably true that she spent Friday
night out of doors, it also developed
that she had taken a blanket from
a porch swing on east Howard street
and had wrapped herself in it for
the night. The last heard of the
girl she was headed homeward ip
charge of her brother.

A Bellefonte merchant who does a
county-wide business started out,
last Friday, with a sheaf of bills to
make collections. At his first stop
the man told him he had no money
but would give him four chickens
or the bill. The merchant took
the chickens. At his next stop he
had a bill of not quite ten dollars
against the man. That man also
he had no money but offered to
ve the merchant two gallons of
whiskey for the bill He said the
whiskey was worth six dollars a
gallon but as he had been a little slow
in payment he would give him two
gallon. The merchant, being a good
key. The next place he visited was
also a farmer who had no money
but gave chickens in payment of his
bill. The man then went to a dif-
ferent section of the county and as
he stopped at a house a big truck
drove up and unloaded four barrels.
One of the men quietly remarked
that “it is whiskey,” and the mer.
chant drove on without presenting
his bill.
Two men, both officers in the Y.
M. C. A. spent Friday evening at
the Y bowling. At least that is
where they said they were but the
next morning they discovered that
they were each wearing the other
fellow's coat. Of course such
things could happen, even at the
Y. M. C. A.

Popularity of Pennsylvania as a
| tourist destination is testified by the
pastignt of highways bureau of
| information, recently established in
| the capitol rotunda. mail and
by personal visits hun of mo-
| torists are requesting information
land routes within the State.
Analysis of a week's activity in
the bureau revealed 75 per cent of
the requests were for points of in-
terest, routes and suggestions, of as-
sistance in seeing Pennsylvania.
Those asking information about out-
of-state destinations also evidenced
interest in a scenic route through
this State.
Comparatively few of the queries
mentioned definite points to be visit-
ed, asking the bureau to suggest
tours of varying lengths, sometimes |
to include the hometown of a relative
or friends. Most of the out-of-state
routes have as their destinations the
popular tourist resorts and the na- |
tional parks.
Hundred of the visitors drawn to
the capitol for an inspection of the
building group and memorial bridge
stop at the touring bureau for ma
and information. Twenty-two of the
| 48 States were represented in the list
of callers in a recent week.
Callers and correspondents from
| other States fail to mention Pennsyl-
vania mountains and lakes. Inter-
est in altitudes is evident. Motorists
from the South and Mid-west, par-
ticularly, want to know if any
ous difficulty to their cars,
mentioning the name of the car.
Letters of thanks and commenda- |
tion for the bureau's service in di-
recting motorists have been numer-
ous. he letters are unanimous in
praising Pennsylvania's road system
land scenery.
The department has distributed
more than 200,000 free tourist maps,
this season, with a steady demand

The new eastern Texas oil field is
| 30 vast that six of the largest pools
‘in the United States could be super-
imposed upon it.
A study of the geology and eco-
‘nomic importance of the field re-
| veals that its immense size, the con-
| sistent results of drilling and its ef.
| fect upon the industry have not yet
| been realized by the most experienc-
(ed and far ted oilmen.
| A map of field shows that the
| Lathrop pool is so larga that the
| Hobbs pool, of New Mexico, hereto-
| fore considered of immense propor-
tions, could be tucked into it, with
plenty of room left over for the
klahma City and Seminole pools.
The long, narrow Kettleman Hills
(Calif.) field would stretch its length
from the lower reaches of the Join-

was a huge sea. The earth's con-
stant mutations left it high and dry,
bearing the remains of trillions of
minute shellfish.
It is the bodies of these shellfish,
lying at an approximate depth of
3500 feet, that have turned into oil.
Oil comes from what geologists
know as woodbine sand in this par-
‘ticular field. The fact that this
sand occurs at almost the same
depth in all parts of the field has
contributed in a large measure to
| the sensational exploitation, as dril-
‘ling costs are thus considerably low-
The thickness of the woodbine
sand varies from a few feet on the
eastern side of the field to 60 or 70
feet thick about two miles west of
the eastern limit of the field in the
Lathrop pool.

several new city businesses which

“I'll tell you about it when you—,

“Yes, dear,” he whispered then.
“And always will?”
“Yes, dear.’

“As soon as the spring term's
