Hi eleven defeated the Osceola Mills
team to the tune of 19-7. The Red
and White warriors literally walked
over the highly praised gridders
from Osceola during the first half of
the game. However, the visitors
were able to score one touchdown.
In the second half Osceola start-
ed a strong offensive and the going
was much harder for the local team.
But at that they scored two touch-
downs in this half, by the alertness
of the players when they fell on one
of their own kick-offs after it had
pes:ed over the Osceola goal un-
touched. After this both teams
plaved good ball and the honors
were quite even.

late arriving in Bellefonte, last Sat-

of the train, two miles west of
Johnstown, which resulted in the
death of both the engineer and fire-
man and the injury of ten others,
all of whom are expected to recov-
«er. The train was rounding a
<urve in the road when the big en-
Zine jumped the tracks and rolled
down an embankment. Both the
engineer and firemen were caught
in the wreé¢kage and burned so bad-
ly with escaping steam that their
death followed. Three cars were
also wrecked. The train was re-
made in Johnstown and sent on its

t October was in 1900 with a
mean temperature of 57.6 degrees,
and the next warmest was in 1914
when the mean temperature was
57.1 degrees.
The highest temperatures record-
ed in October at State College,
grees in 1927, 88 degrees in 1900
and 86 degrees in 1919. All other
records are 85 degrees or below. |
The lowest temperatures recorded
during October were 20 degrees in
1889, 21 degrees in 1893 and 22 de-
grees in 1917. |
The mean , monthly precipitation
in Bellefonte, 1900 to 1911 inclusive, |
(1906 missing,) was 2.90 inches; the
least, 0.24 inch in 1901 and the
greatest, 6.35 inches, in 1911. At
Western Penitentiary during the
years period 1915 to 1922 inclusive,
the mean monthly precipitation was
3.20 inches, or the mean for both is
3.03 inches.
At Fleming during the years 1859
to 1867 inclusive, the mean monthly
precipitation was 3.92 inches.
The mean monthly precipitation
for October at State College, cover-
ling a period of 43 years, was 3.00
inches. Disregarding the record
for Fleming on account of its short
period, we may safely conclude that
the mean monthly precipitation for
