from a fire on which some boys

flected in the windows of the
club house erected this summer on
Spring creek by a number of Belle-
fonte young women in such a way as
to make it appear that the entire in-
terior of the building was a seething
mass of flames. Persons living in that
vicinity telephoned several of the
young lady owners in Bellefonte that
their club house was burning down
and a car was hastily commandeered
and a fast run made up Spring creek.
When they got in sight of the club
house they could see the flames swirl-
ing and shooting up in the room while
people came running from various di-
rections. It was only when they ar-
rived at the club house that they dis-
covered that the supposed fire was
merely the reflection of the camp fire
the boys had.
WANTS BELLEFONTE WATER
State Board of Health Requests |
Monthly Tests of Big Spring. !
At a regular meeting of borough |
council, on Monday evening, a com-
munication from the State Board of
Health was read in which that official
body asked that council have monthly |
analyses made of the water in the
big spring and submit report of same. |
The request was based on the efforts
being made by the State health offi-
cials at Harrisburg to see that every
danger inimical to the health of the
community is eliminated, and not be-
cause they have any reason to believe
the water in Bellefonte’s big spring is
contaminated. The matter was re-
ferred to the Water committee.
. A communication was received from
burgess W. Harrison Walker stating
that postmaster John L. Knisely had
requested co-operation of borough
council and the police department in
keeping open a parking place adja-
cent to the postoffice for the rural
mail carriers. Various plans were
suggested as feasible and the matter
was finally referred to the Fire and
Police committee with power to make
some arrangement with postmaster
Knisely whereby the carriers can be
The Street committee reported the
collection of $221.22 on the Bishop,
Spring and Pine street state road
contracts and that all bills remaining
unpaid had been turned over to the
borough solicitor for the entering of
liens against the properties. The
committee also reported $7.50 receiv-
ed from the sale of old material.
The Water committee reported the
receipt of a check for $400 from the
Titan Metal company as settlement in
full of their water bills to April 1st,
1922. Also the collection of $34.00 on
the 1920 duplicate and $1.50 for re-
pairs on Lamb street. Mr. Cunning-
ham, chairman of the committee re-
ported that the greater part of the
ditch had been dug for the extension
of the water to Halfmoon hill. He
also stated that there are twenty fam-
ilies and a school house outside the
borough limits and the majority of
them would like to have the water ex-
tended to the borough line for their
benefit. To do this will require some
four hundred feet of additional pipe
and the extra cost will be approxi-
mately $140.00. The committee rec-
ommended that the work be done and
a motion was passed authorizing them
to go ahead. Mr. Cunningham also
reported that the new water wheel for
the Phoenix pumping station will be
shipped in the near future. The cost
of same will be $620, fifty per cent. of
which will have to be paid on receipt
of the wheel and the balance in sixty
At the request of the Water com-
mittee the borough manager read 2a
report of the errors and exonerations
asked on the 1920 water tax duplicate,
which are the lowest in a number of
years. Council voted to accept the re-
port and allow the exonerations. This
practically cleans up the 1920 dupli-
cate and along about September first
the uncollected portion of the 1921
duplicate will be withdrawn from the
State-Centre company and turned
over to the borough manager and the
1922 duplicate will be turned over to
the company for collection. :
Mr. Flack, of the Fire and Police
committee, presented the request of
Elmer Yerger that his leave of ab-
sence as a borough police be extend-
ed. He has already overstayed his
leave about a month and inasmuch as
substitute policeman George C. Glenn
has notified the committee that he will
not serve after August 31st the com-
mittee recommended that Mr. Yerger
be required to report for duty Sep-
tember first, and it was so ordered.
The Finance committee presented the
borough treasurer's request for the
renewal of notes for $2000, $500 and
$3400, which was authorized. Secre-
tary Kelly reported that the borough
duplicate has been completed and
turned over to the county commission-
ers. The property valuation this year
is $1,914,478, an increase over last
vear of $174,677. On the above valu-
ation the borough tax for 1922 will be
$19,144.78; street, $19,144.78, and in-
terest, $9,680.43, a total of $47,869.99.
(The water duplicate as reported at
last meeting of council is $14,220.86,
which will make a grand total of
$62,090.85, without counting the
school duplicate of approximately
$44,000, and the poor duplicate of
$5,743.43, all of which is included in
borough expenditures, and the county
tax of $11,486.86, making a grand to-
tal of taxes paid by residents of Belle-
fonte approximating $123,320.00.—
Mr. Emerick called attention to the
fact that every evening 2 number of
small boys congregate in front of the
Scenic and tackle almost every man
who passes for money. They also
make it a practice of shooting cigar
and cigarette snipes, which is not only
a filthy but a disease-breeding habit,
and he suggested that some steps
should be taken to put 2 stop to it.
The matter was referred to the Fire
n lice committee.
? Se to the amount of $624.29 were
approved for payment after which

——Leopold Levi and Harold Zim-
merman, the two Bellefonte boys who
set out on a hike, a few weeks ago,
with California as their destination,
are back already. Zimmerman’s fath-
er drove them to Johnstown and they
really did hike from there to Pitts-
burgh, but at that point the hiking
didn’t look as good as it did when they
were making their plans on the Scen-
ic steps in this place, so they hiked
back home again.
——Centre countians residing in
Philadelphia were especially favored
last Saturday when they were enter-
tained by the president of the Centre
County Association, Mr. Warner Un-
derwood, at 2 melon party at his home
in Woodbury, N. J. Forty-eight per-
sons were present and the feast was
served on the lawn at Mr. Under-
wood’s home, where tables and bench-
es were arranged so everybody could
be comfortable. A truck load of water-
melons were served, as well as canta-
loupes, peaches and sandwiches.
——Congressman Hicks, of New
York, joined the ranks of the dare-
devil Congressmen on Sunday by
going the air-mail route from Chicago
to Washington. Or to speak more
correctly he was a passenger in one of
the big mail planes driven by aviator
Lenhart from Chicago to Bellefonte,
and from Bellefonte south to Wash-
ington. The schedule of the flight in-
cluded a stop in Bellefonte and a num-
ber of people went out to the aviation
field to see how the Congressman was
standing the trip, but the plane was
late leaving Cleveland and did not stop
here. But the ship was in plain sight
as it passed over here at 4:02 o’clock
just one hour and fifty-two minutes
after taking the air at Cleveland.
——It was after midnight last
Thursday night when W. C. Rowe
came up from Hecla park with his re-
ceipts from his day’s soft drink sales,
which were considerable. He drove
his car into the garage at his home on
north Allegheny street but did not
lock the door. Of course he removed
his bag of money to a safe place but
between the time he drove into the
garage and daylight some person en-
tered the place and ransacked his
car, evidently on the hunt of money.
When Mr. Rowe went out to the ga-
rage Friday morning he found the
cushions on his car piled on the side,
the tool box open and other indica-
tions of a thorough search having been
made. Nothing was taken but on the
ledge of the car where the cushion
rests Mr. Rowe found 46 cents. Wheth-
er the would-be robber lost it or where
it came from is not definitely known,
but it went to help swell Thursday’s
Grange Picnic Will Open a Week from
The big Grange picnic at Centre
Hall will open for campers and exhib-
itors next Saturday, September 2nd,
and the secretary of the association
has been busy the past week receiving
and entering applications for space on
the grounds. Every indication points
to the fact that the line of ehxibits of
interest to the farmer, such as imple-
ments, stock and produce, will be on a
par with that of former years. :
The two big days of the week will
be Wednesday and Thursday. The
members of the Centre County Veter-
an club will hold their annual reun-
ion on Wednesday, and have booked
several good speakers for the occa-
sion. All soldiers will be admitted to
the grounds free of charge.
Thursday will be political day when
John A. MecSparran and Gifford
Pinchot, the two leading candidates for
Governor, will be present and speak
in the auditorium. This will be the
official opening of the gubernatorial
campaign and may be the only occa-
sion for Centre county voters to see
and hear their respective candidates.
Where Baseball is Popular.
The baseball bug is abroad in Fer-
guson township and from all reports
about every able bodied man and boy
is affected more or less. So great is
the interest in the national game that
baseball clubs are almost as thick as
berries on a huckleberry bush, and
diamonds dot the landscape every here
and there. Up to this writing the
Pine Grove Mills team seems to be
carrying along the honors with thir-
teen games won to four lost.
The team is composed of E. Hess,
third baseman; G. Burwell, second
baseman; W. Weaver, first base; E.
Auman, left field; L. Randolph, cen-
tre field; R. Kline, right field; H.
Gearhart, catcher; G. Martz, short-
stop; E. Martz, pitcher, and G. Reed,

W. C. T. U. Announcements.
The monthly meeting and thimble
bee of the Bellefonte W. C. T. U. will
be held at 2:30 o’clock this (Friday)
afternoon at the home of the presi-
dent, Miss Rebecca Rhoads. The one
hundred or more “sunshine” and
“comfort” bags made by the Belle-
fonte Union will be ready for comple-
tion to be filled with the articles giv-
en with each. The “sunshine” bags
are for the disabled soldiers and sail-
ors in the hospitals, while the “com-
fort” bags are for the able-bodied men
in the service stationed in lonely, des-
olate places. It is hoped that all who
can do so will attend this meeting.
The annual election of officers will
take place and delegates will be elect-
ed to the W. C. T. U. county conven-
The county convention will be held
at Philipsburg Thursday and Friday,
September 14th and 15th, and will be
of unusual interest because of the fact
that the two evening addresses will
be by distinguished men. On Thurs-
day evening the speaker will be feder-
al prohibition commissioner Roy A.
Haynes, who will make the trip from
Washington especially for that meet-
ing. It is rather unusual for a man in
Commissioner Haynes’ position to
speak outside the larger cities but the
Centre county W. C. T. U. has been
fortunate in securing him for the
above date and a large crowd should
turn out to hear him. The other
prominent speaker will be Mrs. Culla
J. Vayingher, of Indiana, national W.
C. T. U. director of Americanization.
Mrs. Vayingher has a vivid personali-
ty and is a forceful and interesting
speaker. She was president of the In-
diana State W. C. T. U. for eighteen
vears and is now a nominee for the
State Senate in Indiana.
An open meeting will be held in the
court house, Bellefonte, Friday even-
ing, September 8th, when the public
will have an opportunity to hear Mrs.
Viola D. Romans, vice president of
the Ohio State W. C. T. U. and a well
known Chautauqua lecturer. This
meeting will be open to all, and no ad-
mission will be charged.

pital corporation will be held at the

acted will be to elect members of the

The people of Bellefonte and Centre
county have been generous in contrib-
uting to the support of the hospital
but very tight with the time they
might give to its conduct. It seems
that all the active interest the most
of them have is focused about the an-
nual commencement exercises, when
there is usually a good turnout, but
when it comes to the point of the act-
ual management of the institution
they all seem to take the attitude of:
“Let George do it.”
Every person who has given any-
thing to the support of the hospital
during the past year is a member of
the corporation and every one of them
is urged to be present at the meeting
Don’t let it be a repetition of last
year’s meeting when the only persons
there were three officers and one mem-
ber of the board.
Important Notice to Creditors of The
Centre County Bank.
Notice is hereby given by the Ref-
eree in Bankruptcy, that the meeting
of the creditors of The Centre County
Banking company, heretdfore fixed for
next Monday, August 28th, 1922, at
the court house, Bellefonte, Pa., for

tive to the determination of the issue
as to who are partners in said Centre
County Banking company, is contin-
ued until Monday, September 4th,
1922, or later, subject to further no-
tice, owing to the fact that Judge Wit-

argument before himself, at Sunbury,
Pa., of the legal questions involved in

the four-score mark. During the day he
works on the farm, helping with the

horses and cattle, sometimes driving miles
