Worked on Farmer's Credul-,
ity by Muttering Weird
ChiiiiilMTaliiiriE. F'a.. Nov. 20.—John ]
H. Keckler, of Waynesboro, was con
victed of a serious charge In criminal
court this morning. "Hex-doctoring,"j
witches, incantations nntl various I
ghostly matters were mingled in the]
trial, the weirdest coming before the ,
county courts in recent years.
Witnesses alleged that Keckler,
came to the home of Harry Krincr. of;
Lemasters, pointing out to him that!
his farm was enchanted by witches.
Posing as a "hex-doctor," It is charged !
Keckler made incantations and later
had Ada and Grace, Krlner's two,
daughters, brought to his home at]
night at the time of the now moon or;
thereabouts. He stated he '.vas re- i
moving a spell from them.
Finds Witches nt Work
The first witness called in the case \
was \V. If. Krlner. He stated in liis|
testimony that in 1915 Hush Heckman
brought the "hex-doctor" to the home
of Harry Kriner where the so-called i
"witch chaser" said the witches were
working on the premises.' He laid
seals on the, farm, the witness said. I
The "seals," it appears, were small ,
pieces of muslin sewed in bags. Keck- |
ler explained that someone had been [
"working" on the premises for past J
thirty years. It was declared that a I
lengthy i onference was held on the;
subject of witches. A hog on the Kri- j
tur place was ill and it was alleged;
witches had caused this sickness.'
Keckler made efforts to cure the hog,
it was stated.
Keekler was staying at the fleck-!
man house about this tirfie. it was I
testified. According to testimony, the
Heckmans asked that the two daugh
ters of Kriner be brought to their
house to be cured by Keckler. They
were to be brought into Keckler's
room at night and "to touch the hem
of his garment."
Mrs. Rebecca Kriner. wife cf W'. H. j
Kriner, corroborated the testimony of j
her husband with reference to the i
girls. She also said they were at
lleckman's place between six to
twelve times front .fitly. 1915. to No
vember. 1916, and in Slay, 1917. On |
one occasion she saw the "physician"
draw a circle around the witness an 1 j
her daughter and muttered some in-1
Grace Kriner was 17 years old on j
April 19, 1917. Ada was born Janu
ary 10. 1907. Miss Grace was mar
ried August 2. 1917. She stated in;
her testimony that she and her sister!
visited the Heckman home a half]
dozen times in 1915 and 1916 while
Keckler was there, spending the night
with him.

eral P. C. March, chief of staff, urg- j

in his letter that it is the "unanl-.

Philadelphia, where "a most fitting

After expressing this desire the i
Governor says that if It can be done

Cupid Plays Queer Prank
by Twisting Relationships
Dan Cupid is a frolicsome chap at
best und his pranks are marvelous to
behold. For instance, here's what he
did to Robert M. Sturgeon, city edi
tor of York Gazette and Daily and
forrrver Harrisburg newspaperman,
and Mrs. Emaline Strausbaugh, West
York: He made Mr. Sturgeon the
stepfather of his son-in-law and Mrs.
Sturgeon the stepmother of her
daughter-in-law. The children also
take an additional relationship to
their elders.
Sturgeon was married to Mrs. I
Strausbaugh at .Lancaster. Jonas
Strausbaugh, a son of the bride, is
married to the groom's daughter.
Elizabeth. Thus cometh the tangle'
of relationships.

Annual Collection
The annual Thanksgiving donation]
for the Harrisburg Hospital will be!
next Tuesday and Wednesday. No- j
vember 26 and 27.
It is considered likely that the hos
pital's annua! appeal will meet with
a ready response, as it comes im
mediately after the Institution play- ]
ed a splendid part in a great muni- I
cipal crisis, the influenza epidemic.'
The work of the hospital has come l
into the public eye with considerable !
prominence through its activities
during the recent scourge, and don
ations are expected to be made with
a lavish hand In many quarters.
During the epidemic, it was largely
through the efforts of the hospital
that an emergency hospital was es
tablished. lis physicians and nurses
worked constantly to combat the dis
ease. and several of Its staff met death
in the performance of their duty dur
ing that critical period.
Because of these extraordinary de
mands upon the resources of the hos
pital, the need of free handed con
j tributlons this year is larger than
I before, it is pointed out.
Every resident of the city is being
i urged to direct itis grocer to deliver

meeting in the Technical High school

' i auspices of the Rotary Club of Har-j

■ i tives of the Kiwanis Club, lite Cham- |

' I Club and a delegation front Colum-J
"Ibia. The meeting followed an ad-,
'I dress by Major William B. Gray be-j
' fore a Rotary Club luncheon some j
time ago at which he said a study
i of the river convinced him that it j
• could be made navigable at reason- .
able cost. By special permission of ]
the War Department and upon tn- j
' citation of the Rotary Club he re- j
turned to the city last evening to |
': enlarge upon the subject. Both he j
1 1 and Chairman R. A. Zentmyer. of.
. I the State Wuter Supply Commission,
I' made very interesting and enlighten
• !ing addresses.
t Can Be Done at Reasonable Cost
' Major Gray and Mr. Zentmyer j
1 agreed- that the Susquehanna and
' j some of its main tributaries could be )
| made navigable at a reasonable cost I
i and that the venture would be
• i profitable and would save millions
■ i upon millions of dollars in freight
• rutes to the people residing on the
Susquehanna watershed. "Wo are
not pioneers in this," said Major
Gray. "George Washington first
urged it, having made a survey from
' the bay' to the headwaters of the
stream and from there Joining up by
canals to the Great Lakes, and of
all our statesmen Washington was
' the most fursighted."
' t Resolution Passed
'I Following the speech-making,,
which was opened by a brief ad- j
: Lehigh University Instructor
to Give Series of 23
Public lectures on social science
I will be given weekly in the city bc
| ginning to-morrow evening in the
j Central High school auditorium.
I Prof. John 1.. Stewart, instructor in
1 political economy at Lehigh Unlver
j slty, will give the lectures, which
j have been arranged for by Professor
John H. Bickley, supervisor of spe
cial activities in the Harrlsburg
school district, as a course for teach
> ers in the city.
Efforts are being made, however,
to interest everyone in the course,
| I which will include twenty-three lec- i
tures. Lawyers, physicians, bankers, 1
businessmen, workmen —in fact
everyone in the city should arrange
to attend them, Prof. Bickley said
to-day. The opening one will be
; given to-morrow evening and the
1 next one probably on the first Mon
i day night in December.
, "These lectures will include a
t careful study of all existing social
- conditions, relations and develop
s nrent," Professor Bickley explained.
, "About 150 of the city school teach
ters have already decided to attend.
1 There Is no one who will question
that there will he great social read
justments in the next few years and
these should he brought about by
rational development, not by guess
work. Every one should have more
knowledge of the problems of to-day
and to-morrow, for those social
problems will require careful judg
ment to meet changing conditions.
"The purpose of the course is to
bring about u better understanding of
society and then to be able to pro
mote a scientific program of. social
betterment. The course deals \yith
the principles underlying social or
| ganization and with the nature and
, j development of social institutions,
j It will include a study of religion,
customs and law, politics, the family,
I education and many other vital qucs
. j tions of to-day."
