Inauspicious Opening of Trout Fish-
ing Season.
Nature gave the trout a good
chance to escape the snares of the wi- !
ly fisherman’s hook yesterday morn-
ing, on the first day of the trout fish-
ing season, because not in years have
the conditions been more unfavorable
for a good catch. The weather was
cloudy and cold—almost down to the
freezing point—and the waters not
only high but unusually cloudy, the
result of Monday night’s hard rain.
But notwithstanding the unfavora-
ble conditions, fishermen were out in
force to try their luck. In his day and
generation Izaak Walton may have
been the boss fisherman and made
some good catches, but in those days,
when every stream in the country was
teeming with fish, it was doubtless an
easy matter to go out and catch a
mess of fish. But we don’t believe
that old Izaak had anything on the
fishermen of the present day for real |
simon-pure pluck. After being cooped |
up all winter in stuffy offices and
overheated houses springtime takes
the sluggishness out of a man’s blood
and he feels the call to nature just as
much as the birds of the air or the
beasts of the field, and the first big
outlet for his primitiveness is the
opening of the trout fishing season.
He turns to it just as naturally as
the small boy turns to marbles and the
habit is not confined to any particular
set of men.
T'rom cities, towns, villages and
countryside they flock to the streams,
not simply for the blood-lust of kill-
ing but for the puve delight of mateh-
ing wits and skill with the wily trout
and the ambition to conquer. And
conditions were no different yesterday
morning. A score or more of fishes
men lined the banks of Spring creel :
below the High street bridge, while
men and boys were scattered all along
the banks of upper Spring creek and
Logan’s branch.

Susauchanra University Campaign in
Full Swing.
Susquehanna University’s half mil-
lion dollar campaign is now on in full
swing, and judging from the reports
pouring into the office of IF. M. Craw- |
ford, of Bellefonte, campaign leader
in this district, Centre county is gal-
loping over the top with her share of
the great project.
Sweeping enthusiasm is being man-
ifested in the drive and keen rivalry
exists between various towns and dis-
tricts. Bellefonte has issued a chai-
lenge that it will raise more dollars
over a given quota than State College,
and the workers in the college town
have accepted the proposition. Re-
ports for Monday and Tuesday follow:

PATTERSON.—Mrs. Adaline Mat-
tern Patterson, widow of the late W.
Calvin Patterson, of State College.
passed away at her home in that place
on Sunday afternoon. She had been
| critically ill for one month to the very
day, although her health had not been
: good for some time.
Mrs. Patterson was a daughter of
' Jacob and Susan Fetterhoff Mattern
and was born in Huntingdon county
"on March 26th, 1844, hence had reach-
| ed the advanced age of 76 years and
16 days. Her girlhood days were
spent at the home of her birth but the
| greater part of her married life was
| spent at State College. In fact she
| went there with her husband about the
| year 1872, when there was little there
| but the main college building, and she
| has seen it grow into the wonderful
| institution it is today.
i As a girl she became a member of
the Methodist church and when the
family moved to State College she be-
came a member of the congregation
in the old church at Centre Furnace.
When the church was established at
State College she formed one of the
original congregation. She was not
only a faithful member but she believ-
ed in the church as an institution for
good as she believed in a Supreme be-
ing and any labor performed in its be-
half was a delight to her. In her
home she was all that any wife and
! mother could be. Her husband and
| children were foremost in her
| thoughts and love but she was just as
| considerate for her guests. During
‘her active days she was identified
| with the social life of State College as
| well as its material welfare.
Mr. Patterson died in 1909 but sur-
| viving her are four children, namely:
| Mrs. A. Lawrence Miller, wife of the
eminent pastor of the Bloomsburg
| Methodist church; Dr. Harry J. Pat-
| terson, director of the experiment sta-
‘tion of Maryland State College at
| College Point, Md.; Mrs. Milton E.
| McDonald, of Hollidaysburg, and Mrs.
| Irving L. Foster, of State College.
| She also leaves one sister and two
{ brothers, Mrs. Susan Gray, who made
| her home with Mrs. Patterson; Jacob
| H. Mattern, of Warriorsmark, and
{ John F., of Washington, D. C.
| Funeral services were held at her
| late home at three o'clock on Wednes-
| day afternoon by her pastor, Rev. J.
| W. Long, after which her remains
| yrere laid to rest beside those of her
husband in the Pine Hall cemetery.

thirty years ago, and a few years lat-
er she married his cousin, Willard S.

dren, Fred, who lives on the home
farm and Elizabeth at home.

ways sure of a warm welcome. The
