— Penn State went down in de-
feat before Penn’s football warriors,
at Philadelphia last Saturday, by the
close score of 7 to 6. Each team

ball team will leave today for Mor-
gantown, W. Va., where tomorrow

fonte athletes have appeared on the
Morgantown field.
Word was received in Belle-
fonte on Tuesday of the arrival in the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Ezra B. Bimm,
at Dayton, Ohio, on Monday evening,
of a little daughter. Mrs. Bimm will
be well remembered by her many
Bellefonte friends as Miss Rebecca

picture show. All the good ones will
“be shown at the Scenic.
The Last Resort tea room,
which was opened so auspiciously, on
Armistice day, has since that time
continued its success. With a unique
housing, a clever hostess, excellent
food and reasonable charges for the
food, there can be nothing but a bright
outlook for the future of this under-
‘taking. Miss Valentine, whose tea
room is located directly above the
‘Brant house, on Allegheny street, is
very glad for local patronage, but will
cater especially to tourists.
— William R. Cooke, of Llanerch,
has been elected president of the
board of commissioners of Haverford
township at the meeting of that body
early this month. Mr. Cooke is an old
Bellefonte boy, a brother of E. C.
“s Cooke, of this place. The office is quite
an important one, for in the thickly
- populated suburbs of Philadelphia,
“township business is as varied and
voluminous as that of many of our
cities. Mr. Cooke has been a mem-
ber of the board for six years.
Last Thursday afternoon the
compressed air tank in the basement
of J. 0. Heverley’s auto supply store
«exploded with sufficient force to shake
‘the whole building. In fact it broke
«one joist and cracked the glass in two
of the windows. The tank stood on
end, the top of it being against the
joist. It was being filled with air at
the time and although the automat
was set for 180 pounds pressure the
@xprosion occurred at 145 pounds. The
entire bottom of the tank, which was
‘brazed on, blew off, and thus the most
of the force was downward. While
the noise of the explosion was not
very loud the concussion was consid-
erable. Fortunately no one was in the
basement at the time of the explosion.
Considerable Business Before Coun-
cil on Monday Evening.
Eight members were present at the
regular meeting of borough council on
Monday evening. A written commu-
nication was received from James C.
Furst Esq., requesting exoneration of
water tax on the Mrs. Hiller proper-
ty, on High street, from October 11,
1921, to date, and thence until the
property is again occupied. Mr. Cun-
ningham called attention to the fact
that a resolution passed two years ago
provides that no exonerations be
granted on water tax. The matter
was referred to the Water committee.
Regarding the State Board of
Health’s request for a bactereological
analysis of the water in the big spring
secretary Kelly reported that the bor-
ough manager had communicated with
the department of chemistry, at State
College, and the officials there agree
to collect their own samples and make
the analysis for five dollars, and the
borough manager was instructed to
have them do so.
Ambrose Ray, of east Howard
street, requested council to fix the
water hydrant at his place so it will
not freeze up during the winter. Re-
ferred to the Water committee.
An application was received from
Edward W. Kane for appointment on
the police force. On recommendation
of the Fire and Police committee he
was elected to continue on the force
as long as his services are deemed
Secretary Kelly reported that an
adjustment had finally been made
with the State Highway Department
for the borough’s share of the cost of
repairs on Allegheny and other
streets, the amount being $958.41, and
he was instructed to send an order for |
that amount. |
At this juncture in the proceedings |
L. A. Schaeffer made his appearance
and complained about the lack of a de-
cent crossing between the properties
of Mrs. M. B. Garman and Frank
Crawford, on east Curtin street. The
borough manager was instructed to
fix it, at least temporarily, before win-
ter sets in.
Mrs. Harry Haag asked that a light
be placed near her home at the corner
of Penn street and alley. Referred to
the Street committee.
At this stage in the proceedings
president John S. Walker called the
attention of council to the fact that
State College, along with all sur-
rounding towns, is about to pass an
ordinance governing the sale of milk
within the borough and he advised
that Bellefonte council do likewise.
He presented the draft of an ordi-
nance recommended by the State
Board of Health, which, however, can
be changed or modified to meet local
conditions, and urged council to give
it serious consideration. On motion
the matter was referred to the Sani-
tary committee and borough solicitor
to prepare an ordinance applicable to
Bellefonte and submit it for consid-
The Street committee reported the
receipt of $72.58 from the State High-
way Department for the use of road
The Water committee reported the
colection of $150.85 on the 1921 du-
plicate and that old scrap iron to the
amount of $100.61 had been sold to
the Sutton-Abramsen Engineering
The Fire and Police committee re-
ported a contribution of $33.00 from
residents of Hublersburg as an appre-
ciation for the good work done by the
Logan fire company on the occasion of
a recent fire in that place. The com-
mittee also suggested that the bor-
ough manager make a test of all fire-
plugs before cold weather sets in.
The Finance committee requested
the renewal of notes for $1,800, $7,
000, $1,500, $2,000 and $630, all of
which were authorized.
Mr. Cunningham reported that the
new water wheel is now in place at
the Phoenix mill pumping station and
its efficiency is approximately twenty-
five per cent. greater than the old
wheel, which should result in a con-
siderable reduction of the electric
pump bills.
Regarding the request of the Kra-
der Motor company for permission to
close up the rear of their building on
Howard street with a temporary
structure and construct a driveway in-
to the same, the Special committee
recommended that the same be grant-
ed, and it was so ordered.
President Walker called attention to |
the fact that the trustees of the Pru-
ner orphanage have recommended
that the balance in the hands of the
treasurer received from the sale of
lands, amounting to $3650.00, be in-
vested in Liberty bonds, and that in-
stead of having the bonds now owned
by the orphanage and those to be pur-
chased registered, that the treasurer
be required to give bond with a relia-
ble bonding company to the full
amount of all bonds in his possession.
The recommendation was approved by
Mr. Hazel called attention to what
he considered a dangerous condition in
the rear of the Bellefonte Hardware
company’s store where there is an ac-
cumulation of rubbish, empty oil
barrels, etc. The matter was refer-
red to the Fire and Police and Sani-
tary committees.
Bills to the amount of $747.57 were
approved and council adjourned.

Deer Hunting Season Will Open a
Week from Today.
Just one week from today, or on
Friday, December 1st, the deer hunt-
ing season will open in Pennsylvania
and several days prior thereto there
will be a general exodus of Centre
county hunters to their favorite
camps in the mountains, and likewise
a steady influx of hunters from every
section of the State. Most of the
hunting clubs have their regular
camps and occupy them year after
year. The parties include practically
the same men and they know every
trail and every hiding place of the
deer, so that a buck with a visible
rack of horns stands very little chance
of escape if it gets out from under
cover within gunshot of the watch-
ers. Many deer have been seen in all
the mountainous sections of the coun-
ty during the summer and there is
every reason to believe that the two
weeks season will yield good results to
the energetic hunters. Bear are also
reported more plentiful this year, but
they are a wily animal and hard to
C. A. Dunlep and F. L. Kendig, of
Pittsburgh, spent last week down Nit-
tany valley hunting small game.
They were successful in bagging quite
a number of pheasants and rabbits
and engaged a man to bring them,
their game and equipment to Belle-
fonte. Motoring along in the neigh-
borhood of Hecla park, on Thursday
evening, a tire came off the machine
with the result that it ran into the
ditch. Mr. Dunlop was thrown out
and the ligaments in one of his legs
were torn loose. He was brought to
Bellefonte and after spending the
night here was taken to Pittsburgh
on Friday morning.
Some ten days or two weeks ago
four hunters from Pittsburgh, in a
new Chevrolet car, arrived in Belle-
fonte and after filling up with gas and
oil started down Bald Eagle valley.
They carried a full complement of
camp equipage and almost a week’s
supply of food, and as they were mo-
toring along the Lingle place below
Milesburg their car caught fire. In
fact flames seemed to envelop the en-
tire car and the men were compelled
to jump and run to save themselves.
| Without any means of fighting the
fire they were compelled to stand by
and see their car and all it contained
go up in smoke. This included their
guns and ammunition, and there was
a regular fusilade of discharging car-
tridges while the machine burned.
During the latter part of the week
both Collins and Philip Shoemaker
were successful in bagging wild tur-
keys with the result that a wild tur-
key dinner was served at the Shoe-
On Saturday Lester Sheffer, of Mil-
roy, superintendent of the National
limestone quarries, at Naginey, walk-
ed into the woods above the quarries
and shot a wild turkey in less than
half an hour and the Sheffer family
had turkey for dinner on Sunday.

Posting Lands with Trespass Notices.
It is reported on good authority that
many farmers and land owners in
Pennsvalley, especially the lower end,
are posting up “no trespass” notices
as a warning to hunters to “keep off
the grass.” It is also reported that
this action upon the part of the land
owners sas precipitated by an inci-
dent which occurred during the deer
hunting season last year. A certain
gentleman, of Millheim, owns some
four or five hundred acres of woodland
on Brush mountain and early in the
hunting season last year he took his
gun and went up on the mountain in
the hope of getting a deer. While
tramping along an old road he came
upon a strange hunter watching on a
deer crossing. The stranger proceed-
ed to call down the Millheim man for
what he termed “encroachment upon
their territory,” and it then developed
that he was a member of a hunting
party from the western part of the
State which had gone onto the moun-
tain and made camp without asking
permission of any one.
When the Millheim man told him
that he was the owner of the land and
had a legal right there the stranger
became very abusive. Other instances
have been reported where hunters
from other sections disregarded most
every rule of sportsmen’s etiquette
and it is because of these facts that
land owners are posting trespass

Bellefonte Young Man Attempted to
Pass Many Forged Checks Last
At this writing (Wednesday after-
noon) the sheriff of Centre county and
police officials are looking for Thomas
Woolford, a young man of Bellefonte,
who last Saturday started on a career
of frenzied finance through the me-
dium of forged checks. Some time
during the forenoon he went to the
First National bank and presented a
check for $500.00 drawn to his order
and signed by Elizabeth Green, re-
questing the cash for same. The bank
officials saw at once that the signa-
ture was not genuine and naturally re-
fused to cash the check.
Later he went to Montgomery and
Co’s and wanted to buy some clothing,
tendering as payment a check for
$150.00 drawn to his order and signed
by J. D. Neidigh. The salesman at
Montgomerys declined to accept the
check and Woolford left the store.
Nothing daunted, however, he went to
Sim, the Clothier, and purchased a
suit of clothes, an overcoat and other
articles amounting to $52.00. In pay-
ment therefore he presented a check
for $250.00, drawn to his order and
signed by J. D. Neidigh. The check
was marked “for wiring,” and Wool-
ford explained that he had wired Mr.
Neidigh’s buildings for electricity and
had received the check in payment
therefore. Mr. Baum finally accepted
the check and gave him the change,
$198.00. Later he got in communica-
tion with Mr. Neidigh and learned the
check was a forgery. Securing the
services of sheriff Dukeman he started
cna hunt for the young man. He was
| finally found in the Bon Mot, where
| he was nonchalantly taking a drink.
! When confronted by Mr. Baum and
the sheriff he confessed to having
forged the check, but as he willingly
surrendered the clothing and the mon-
ey given him by Mr. Baum he was al-
lowed to go free.
Later in the evening, however, it
developed that he had also tried to
get a check for $50.00 cashed at Ha-
zel’s grocery, and did succeed in pass-
ing a check for $75.00 on a Bellefonte
meat dealer and one for a smaller
amount on another merchant. The
$75.00 check was drawn to his order
and signed J. M. Corl.
Woolford claims to be an electrician
and has done wiring in Bellefonte and
at places throughout the county, and
all the checks being marked “for wir-
ing” probably aided him in success-
| fully cashing some of them. One of
the men victimized, as soon as he
{ learned that the check he cashed was
. a forgery, went before ’Squire J. M.
Keichline and swore out a warrant for
Woolford’s arrest, but up to this writ-
i ing he has successfully evaded the of-
ficers of the law.

Interesting Talk on Hawaiian Islands.
The lecture given in the Methodist
church on Friday night by Miss Lottie
L. Tillotson, on the Hawaiian Islands,
the habits and customs of the natives,
proved a rare treat to those who at-
tended. The entertainment was in-
tensely interesting, as Miss Tillotson
is possessed of a charming personality
and gave her lecture with unspoiled
naturalness. She has visited nearly
every known country and not only
has something to say but knows how
to say it.
She told of the characteristies of
the natives and described the people,
saying that the average height of the
men of the original Hawaiians was six
feet and their weight 200 pounds.
That was in the ancient times before
the race had intermarried with na-
tives of other countries. The original
Hawaiians were the tallest and larg-
est people in the world. She also told
of the beautiful scenery and said that
the Island has twenty-six of the
world’s highest waterfalls. The tem-
perature throughout the year varies
only about ten degrees but during the
winter months there are severe
storms, after which the small streams
become swollen rivers and traffic is
blocked for some time. There are
many exquisite flowers and shrubs
throughout the Islands. The principal
products are sugar, fruits and coffee.

A Tree Nursery at Rockview.
Inmates at the western penitentiary
at Rockview, Centre county, will grow
millions of trees to be planted in all
parts of the State. The Department
of Forestry has arranged with the
prison officials for the establishment
of a nursery at that institution. About
eight acres will be devoted to a trans-
plant nursery of shade and ornamen-
tal trees. This tract will be developed
this fall. Next spring another area
of similar size will be prepared for
growing large quantities of young for-
est trees.

been doing research work in Washington,
D. C. The cutting down of the maximum
