Brief Meeting of Borough Council.
Only five members were present at
the regular meeting of borough coun-
cil on Monday evening. There were
no verbal nor written communications.
Mr. Richard, for the Street com-
mittee, presented the first report of
borough manager J. D. Seibert so far
as it related to that department which
showed that an unusual amount of
repair work and improvements had
been made on various streets of the
town. He also presented the treasur-
er’s receipt for $50 for sewer permits
due and owing the borough for
months which the borcugh manager
had collected and turned over to the
The Water committee also reported
a number of badly needed repairs hav-
ing been made by the borcugh man-
ager and in the neighborhood of one
hundred dollars long overdue water
taxes lected. He also reported a
request of Richard M. Funk for water
connections with his bungalow on east
Curtin street, and also water privi-
leges for a private swimming tank.
The house will be connected up at reg-
ular domestic rates and a meter will
be put on the swimming tank and the
price charged be on the basis of the
water consumed.
The Finance committee asked for
the renewal of notes for $3,000 one
year from July 8th, and $1,500 one
year from July 2nd, both of which
were authorized.
The Special committee reported
that they had investigated the com-
munication of the State-Centre Elec-
tric company relative to continuing
the special agreement for pumping
water but for various reasons they
recommended that the agreement be
terminated at the end of the trial
year, which will be September first,
and at that date revert to the origi-
nal pumping contract, which was only
temporarily suspended during a trial
year of the special agreement. On
motion council accepted the recom-
mendation of the committee and the
secretary was notified to so inform
the State-Centre company.
The Special committee also pre- ; 4

by his wife who prior to her marriage |
sented a communication from Col. W.
Fred Reynolds stating the terms on |
which he will sell the Phoenix mill
property to the borough and giving
one month from date of letter in
which to accept or reject his offer. |
The sentiment of council is favorable
to the purchase of the property and
the matter was continued in the hands
of the Special committee until next |
meeting night to work out details,
Regarding tax collector J. Kenne-
dy Johmston’s request that the bor-
ough withhold any moneys due con-
tractor R. B. Taylor until his taxes |
have all been paid and satisfied the |
Special committee was in doubt as to |
council’s right in the matter and the
request was turned over to the bor-
ough solicitor.
The Special committee reported
that the roadway of the Willowbank |
street bridge has been completed and |
opened for traffic, and that Mr. H. S.
Moore had been given the contract
for putting the walk on each side of
the roadway in good condition.
The Special committee also pre-
sented a favorable report on the ordi-
nance presented at last meeting pro-
hibiting the erection of booths and
tents on the streets of Bellefonte, but
the matter was held over until next
meeting for further action.
Regarding the petitions of citizens
for the building of a state highway
on Bishop, south Spring and Pine
streets to connect with the highway
now being built from Bellefonte to
Pleasant Gap the Special committee
reported that the petition is now in
the hands of the County Commission-
ers, but that they also have a petition |
for a stretch of highway near State
College which was received prior to
the one from Bellefonte and would
naturally take priority in action. The
committee was instructed to do all
possible to speed up action on the
Bellefonte project.
Bills to the amount of $1,363.44
were approved and council adjourned.
A birthday party and welcome
home celebration combined was held
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dice
Thomas, on the Branch in Ferguson
township, Wednesday evening, in hon- |
or of their son, Ralph Thomas, who
was twenty-five years old that day
and who just recently returned from
France where he served in the head-
quarters company of the 79th divis- |
About one hundred and fifty
people were present, including prac-
tically all the residents of that locali-
ty and the occasion was a flattering
testimonial of the esteem in which the
young soldier is held by all his
George Kelley last week sold
his bakery in the Bush Arcade to Mrs.
Catharine Raymond who took charge
as proprietress on Monday. Mrs.
Raymond had assisted Mr. Kelley in
conducting the bakery prior to pur-
chasing the plant. The sale did not
include the ice plant purchased re-
cently by Mr.. Kelley from George
Doll and he is now devoting his at-
tention to looking after it.

| Mr. and Mrs. Van Jodon, ran out on

Knights of Columbus Statue at State
In commemoration of the great hu-
anitarian work done by the Knights
of Columbus during the war with
Germany, both in this country and in
foreign lands, a beautiful statue will

His first appear- |

when he drove a plane through here

est type. He was an older man than
most of them, with wonderful com- |
and a scher, reasoning sense |
i of the game. Of ccurse he was a
“stunt” flyer and a good one, but he
believed in “jazzing” only as an es-
| sential to a flyer’s ability to manou-
i ship under any and all condi-

| tions. He realized the hazard always |
i and flew safe insofar as a sound judg-
| ment could guide him over a course
that he had taken great pains to study
"during his frequent flights over it.
| As a man he was a very likable fel-
, low; clean cut, straightforward, un-
| obtrusive. His short residence in
Bellefonte won for him the esteem
| and friendship of a large circle of ac-
quaintances who were shocked at his
. sad end almost as though he had been

Perplexities of Aviators in a Fog.
Writing from Alto under date of
| last Saturday George B. Thompson
| says:
“As you may be interested to know
| of the desperate attempt made by the
| mail aviator yesterday to land I will
tell you what we saw of it.
| “At noon yesterday he came from
the direction of Lemont—the east—
flying only a few feet above the trees, | Union
and almost touching the ground at
more than ten feet above the seventy
foot stack. He then made a circle
and came over us again and sailed
over nearly to State College. :
“In a few minutes he was back and
passed over our house, so near that
. we could see his face and he waved
his arm to us. We pointed northeast
toward Bellefonte and he curved off
in that direction.

——On Wednesday morning Mrs. |
Clyde Love, who lives over Miss |
Cooney’s hat shop, went to the sink |
to draw some water from the spigot.
As she turned on the water she re-
ceived an electric shock that almost
knocked her down. In fact the cur-
rent was so great that the fire flew
from her bare arm. While she was
not rendered unconscious the shock |
left her s0 nervous and weak that it
was several hours before she recover-
ed therefrom. The cause of the
shock has not yet been definitely de-
termined, although both plumbers
and electricians have been looking for
it. When Mrs. Love turned on the
water she was standing on a strip of
damp oilcloth, which naturally form-
ed a circuit, but there evidently was a

to New York and was compelled to

at such speed that his machine turned

o'clock and got along all right until

a» .
tered a severe storm and was driven
from his route so that he reached
{ Harrisburg, but by that time the
storm was so severe that he could
not continue his flight and he was
forced to descend.
These series of mishaps, all trans-
piring within a week, are no doubt
discouraging, but then the series of
storms we have had during the week
were also very unusual. In fact it is
hardly probable that there will be
another such a succession of severe
storms in months. And just to prove
that the jinx didn’t get them aviator
Lewis did some real jazzing over
Bellefonte on Wednesday in testing
out a machine and yesterday the serv-

On Friday of last week F. Q. Hart-
