Erection of Krader & Co.
John J. Bower Esq., appeared ap-
' peared before borough council on Mon-
day evening as representative of W.
' C. Krader & Co., automobile dealers,
requesting the granting of an appli-
cation for the erection of a garage on
Allegheny street property. Mr. Bow-
er. stated that the company is
compelled to vacate the build-
ing they now occupy and being unable
to secure another suitable location had
gone ahead with their arrangements
to build a garage on their own prop-
erty. That the framework of the
building would be of heavy timbers
but the sides and roofing would be
corrugated iron, which would make
the building semi-fireproof. Mr. Bow-
er further stated that the company
had not anticipated any objections to
the erection of the building until they
were notified by the borough solicitor
that they had better secure a permit
from council.
Hard P. Harris personally protested
against the erection of the garage and
also presented a petition signed by
citizens of that locality requesting
council to refuse a permit. John
Blanchard Esq., also appeared on be-
half of the residents of that locality
and vehemently protested against the
building of a garage at the designated
point, because of the fact that it is a
residential section and would to a cer-
tain extent depreciate the value of
property in that locality. He also
called attention to the fact that the
courts have granted injunctions re-
straining the erection of garages in
residential localities. T. R. Hamilton
also entered a protest.
In reply, Mr. Bower stated that
while it is true, as Mr. Blanchard
stated, that courts have issued re-
straining injunctions it is also true
that they have refused to issue
injunctions. He further pointed
out the fact that the stockholders of
the Krader company are practically
all business men of Bellefonte and en-
titled to some consideration. That it
was impossible for them to secure a
building elsewhere and they should
not be restrained from erecting one
on their own property. He further
requested council in the event they
refuse the permit to state the reason
therefore, so that the question of the
rights of the property owners can be
settled in the courts.
Inasmuch as the rights of all par-
ties might be properly conserved pres-
ident Walker decided that it would be
better to refer the whole matter to
the Fire and Police committee and
borough solicitor for investigation
and report at next meeting.
Morris. D. Runkle asked for a
grade for pavement in front of his
property on north Spring street and
the matter was referred to the bor-
ough manager.
The Street committee reported the
collection of $30.00 for three sewer
The Water committee reported the
cleaning of the big spring.
Mr. Flack, of the Fire and Police
committee, stated that the Eureka
Fire Hose company had furnished two
sections of new hose to take the place
of two damaged sections. Mr. Em-
erick, of the same committee, stated
that so far the committee had not
worked out any plan governing the
parking of cars on south Water street,
but it was the general sentiment of
the committee that all parking should
be limited to five minutes. The com-
mittee was instructed to continue its
The Street committee presented the
agreement with the County Commis-
sioners to pay the sum of $500 toward
the expense of repairing the Lamb
street bridge.
The Finance committee presented
the report of the borough treasurer
showing a balance on hand April 3rd
of $6960.31. He also asked for the re-
newal of notes for $1,100, $600, $1,000,
$630 and $1,000, and that a new note
of $1,000 be authorized to take up a
note of like amount with the Belle-
font Trust company.
Mr. Emerick stated that the bor-
ough council of State College is con-
templating the purchase of new fire-
fighting apparatus and he asked per-
mission of council to take one pump-
er to the College to give a demonstra-
tion. The matter was referred to the
Fire and Police committee and chief
fire marshall.
Mr. Brouse, of the Street commit-
tee, stated that the American Lime &
Stone company have resumed work at
the Pike quarries and inasmuch as
they offered to make the fill for the
opening of north Water street the
committee should be empowered to
make the necessary arrangements.
Mr. Fauble stated that some estimate
should be made of the cost before any
steps were takento open that street,
as the borough has almost reached
its limit in finances. Mr. Brouse
stated that the fill is to be made
without any cost to the borough, as
the American Lime & Stone company
is anxious to have the chance to
thus dispose of their waste material.
Under the circumstances the matter
was referred to the Street committee,
the borough manager and the borough
engineer to locate the street and des-
ignate where the fill is to be made.
Conrad Miller stated to council that
he is ready to start work on the new
porch at the Elk’s club and stated that
as a matter of safety it might be nec-
essary to close the pavement there
during operations. The matter was

ious committees were instructed to
prepare estimates and submit the
same to the Finance committee.

Mrs. John Kostok, of Snow
Shoe township, whose husband was
found dead near his home on Saturday
morning, March 25th, is not satisfied
that he committed suicide, notwith-
standing the fact that he was found
with a rope around his neck, one end
of which was tied to a root of the
stump of a fallen tree. After the
body was found a physician made a
most careful examination but was un-
able to find any evidence of foul play.
Kostok carried insurance in a benefi-
cial association but the policy especial-
ly provides that no payments will be
made in a case of suicide, and unless
she can prove that his death was caus-
ed in some other way the widow will
reap no benefit from his insurance.

Boy Scout News.
At a meeting of the Boy Scouts last
Friday night Donald Mallory, Charles
Mensch, James Shope and Victor Em-
el were selected as members of the
Scouts drum corps. A troop picture
was to have been taken that evening
but because of the weather it had to
be postponed. Two short games of
basket ball were played, one with the
colored boys and the other between
two Scout teams. On Saturday after-
noon the troop, in charge of assistant
scoutmaster Malin and Sergeant
Steltz took a hike, practicing track-
ing, taking landscapes and hunting
for each other’s patrols. Another hike
will be taken tommorrow afternoon.
This (Friday) evening Dr. Dale will
begin a course in first aid, which is
one of the tests everybody must pass
before becoming first-class Scouts.
Don’t forget to give the Scouts a call
if you have any odd jobs to do.
"Sheep and Wool Association Elects
: Officers.
{ The future of the sheep and wool in-
“dustry never looked brighter in thir-
i ty years than it does at present, (war
; time prices excepted), says J. N. Rob-
inson, county farm agent. Medium
“wool at present is worth thirty cents
- at your local loading station, and grade
' ewes with lambs at side have sold as
i high as twenty-five dollars each at
farm sales in Centre county. This is
quite a different story from two years
ago when wool could not be sold at
any price and sheep were worth four
or five dollars each. The sheep men
of the United States are one of the
best organized bodies of men in agri-
culture, and it is the efforts of these
county and State sheep and wool
growers’ associations that are large-
ly responsible for the present good
condition of the wool market, and the
price of wool is reflected in the price
of lambs and breeding sheep.
The various branches of the Centre
county Sheep and Wool Grower’s As-
sociation held their annual meeting
last week and elected officers and
made extensive plans for this sum-
mer. The officers of the local branch-
es elected for this year are:
President, Harry Harter; secretary
and treasurer, W. C. Smeltzer, Belle-
President, R. P. Campbell; secre-
tary and treasurer, J. W. Evans,
Spring Mills.
President, I. O. Campbell; secretary
and treasurer, S. M. Hess, Pine Grove
The association expects to market
the wool on a graded basis the same
as last year. If you are a producer
of wool in Centre county you cannot
afford to remain outside of your sheep
and wool grower’s association. The
members during the past year, and
past three years have saved from 35 to
50 per cent. by marketing their wool
co-operatively and on a graded basis.
It is economy to tie each fleece sep-
arately, flesh side out and with paper
twine. A loose fleece shrinks heav-
ily, looks bad, is hard to handle and
often means a difference of grade
which may mean several cents per
pound, because it comes before the
grader looking its worst, while if
properly tied the reverse is true.
Put up a good honest package in an
attractive way, market co-operatively
through your own association and you
will come out ahead in the long run.
If you are interested in a pure-bred
ram or a few pure-bred ewes your as-
sociation can help you locate good
ones at a right price.
Corl-Boal Bus Wrecked Last Friday.
Seven passengers in the Corl-Boal
bus, running from Boalsburg to State
College, had a thrilling experience last
Friday afternoon when the bus col-
over a twelve foot embankment, and
just missed tumbling into Spring
creek. While all the passengers were
considerably shaken up and some sus-
tained a few slight bruises, none were
seriously hurt.
The bus was a Reo, one of the light
weight machines of the Corl-Boal com-
pany, and was driven by Luther
Brouse. He was on his way to. State
College. The bridge where the acci-
dent occurred is at the bottom of a
hill and located about the middle of a
curve. It is barely wide enough for
generally customary for drivers to
wait on one side when they see anoth-
er machine or team closer to the
bridge on the other side. i
It just happened last Friday after-
noon that three two horse teams were
in line on their way to Lemont.: Wil-
liam McClintic was in charge of the
team in front, Clarence Blazier was
in the middle and Frank MecClintic
drove the rear team. Two of the
| teams were about over the bridge
when the bus came in view on top of
the hill. The driver kept on down the
hill but unfortunately when he real-
ized that the last team would not be
able to clear the bridge he was una-
ble to stop his machine. He managed
to evade hitting the horses but caught
the rear end of the wagon, which
threw the bus around and it plunged
down over the bank at the left of the
road. The wagon was damaged and
Frank McClellan thrown from the
seat onto the brake, injuring his side.
The passengers in the bus were
quickly rescued from the overturned

ination board has designated Lock

runs out the Schaeffer hardware store
has that wonderful Red Star vapor
stove that burns oil and the fuel costs
less than half as much as coal. Even
.if coal doesn’t become scarce there is
a stove worth looking at. It is eco-
nomical and a great labor saver.
The coal business in this place,
which was financed by, and is conduct-
ed in the name of M. J. Thomas, con-
tinues to be run under the same bus-
iness arrangements as when started
less than a year ago. J. D. and Arthur
Thomas are only employed to conduct
the business for me.
