Councir’s MEETING.—Council met
in regular session, on Monday night,
and dispatched what business there was
before it. on
Gowan Thomas, colored, appeared
and asked to have a hydrant on St. Paul
order. The request was granted.
A request was received from Dr. Thos.
R. Hayes that he he exonerated from
the amount of time he is absent from
Bellefonte, The matter was referred to
the Finance committee with power to
act. We do not see how council can
consistently allow a concession of this
sort to Dr. Hayes and in the o.:n* that
it is done there will be no end of the
trouble arising from similar requests.
Whether the family of Dr. Hayes is ab-
sent from Bellefonte or not the property
is still here and might demand protec-
present system of levying water tax, ac-
cording to the number of faucets, in use
was adopted we recall a number of in-
stances where families did not use a pint
of water from the public service in years,
yet they paid taxes just the same as any
one else and more than sixty per cent of
the residents of the town.
Upon the written request of Sup’t.
S. 8. Blair, of the Tyrone division of
the P. R. R., council ratified burgess
Gray’s action in swearing Jesse Dawson
into service as a special officer at the
Pennsylvania station in this place.
H. CO. Quigley Eeq., secretary of the
board of health, appeared before council
and asked that Wilbur F. Reeder Esq.,
be retained as a member for another
year, also that the annual appropriation
of $100 be made to the board.
The Street and Water committees
were the only ones to report. The
former announced numerous repairs to
streets and side walks, while the latter
complained that there has been an ab-
normal consumption of water, during
the present cold weather.
After mewber Gerberich’s resolution,
to purchase a wagon scale and set it up
ut the water works so that ll coal could
be weighed as delivered, had been laid
on the table council approved bills, ag-
gregating $612.12, and adjourned.
we do not wish to appear as throwing
cold wagfr on any project looking to
the betterment of Bellefonte’s industrial
condition we feel called upon to correct
an erroneous assertion made by the
Daily News on Wednesday. For some
time that paper has been making much
out of the probable early resumption of
the Bellefonte furnace and, at last, has
itself worked up to a pitch where it as-
gerts ‘‘that the Collins’ furnace will re-
sume operation in the near future is an
assured fact. The above statement is no
rumor, but a verified fact.”
There is nothing more foolieh for a
paper to do than to start such stories.
While it is possible, and even probable,
that the furnace in question will resume
some time soon there is nothing of a
certainty about 1t at all. Certain nego-
tiations, that upon their consummation
would eventually result in the blowing
in of the large furnace, have been pend-
ing ever since last fall and while the
parties thereto are really getting a little
closer together than they were at first
there is still nothing to warrant the
News in its statement.
The WATCHMAN can be relied on,
when the proper time comes, to give to
the public all the facts concerning the
furnace—and, as was the case in the
nail-works gush, last fall, they will be
authentic, notwithstanding any state-
ments to the contrary. :
A Bap Mix Up.--An engine on the
Nittany valley railroad frightened a
horse that two women were driving on
the road leading to this place, last Fri-
day morning, and by the time it became
quieted down again there had been a
general wreck of four or five wagons
that happened along there just at that
The accident occurred near the home
of Samuel Markle, who lives or the
Jacob Valentine furm, just about a mile
east of this place. The women were
driving their horse along behind & num-
ber of other teams headed for this place.
When an engine steamed along and
frightened it the horse dashed into the
wagon ahead causing the team drawing
it to start to run away and in turn col-
lide with the wagon ahead of it. There
was a third run-a-way then and finally
a fourth added to the excitement until
eight horses and five wagons were tan-
gled up in such a shape that the whole
writhing, kicking mass tumbled into
the fence at the road side. Several
penels of fence were destroyed and one
horse was injured by being jagged by a
broken rail, but none of the occupants
of the wrecked wagons were the least
bit injured.

most severe in the Atlantic States about
the 20th.
Months ago these bulletins contained
an important forecast, to the effect that
rain and snow would largely increase
over the United States before the close
of December. It was also stated that
our atmosphere was greatly expanded
from the effects of excessive and long
evaporations and would collapse by pre-
cipitating by tho beginning of 1896.
position of the planets, and the reason
for this important and successful fore-
cast will be seen, as also the causes for
the April and May droughts of 1895.
A paragraph recently run through
the newspapers in which it was stated
that two full moous occurred in Decem-
ber, 1895, and that a like event bad not
been witnessed since the time of Christ.
This shows how little some people know
about oné-of the most common occur-
rences, and ‘the blunder ought to cause
them to hesitate when they come to dis-
cuss the changes of the moon, weather
events, forecasts, Etc. The fact is that
two full and two new moons, two first
quarters and two last quarters occur at
intervals of about thirty months. Us-
ing astronomical time, which begins at
noon, two full moons occurred in July,
1871 ; January, 1874; November,
1876 ; August, 1879; June, 1882 ; Dec-
ewber, 1884; October, 1887; July,
1890 ; January, 1893, and December,
1895. The two full moons and two oth-
er phases of the moon occur 1n the same
month at intervals of eighteen years
and also, with nearly the same regular-
ity, at intervals of nine years. If we
use civil time, beginning at midnight,
there are just as many such cases and at
the same intervals, but not always in
the same month.
