Many Mighty Fishermen Will be
The opening of the trout fishing
season next Monday morning will,
without doubt, bring out every disci-
ple of Izaak Walton in Centre county,
weather permitting, and what may be
regarded as worse luck, probably
scores of fishermen from other por-
tions of the State who invariably flock
here for the opening day. Of course,
Centre county offers many advantages
found in but few counties in the State,
and that is that virtually every
stream within its boundary with the
exception of Bald Eagle creek, is a
trout stream. Some of the streams,
however, are better stocked than oth-
ers but an experienced fisherman with
the right kind of bait and the ordi-
nary run of luck ought to be able to
get a mess of trout out of most any
creek in the county. In the immediate
vicinity of Bellefonte Spring creek
and Logan’s branch are the streams
that draw the biggest crowds, while
Fishing creek, in Clinton county, is
always thronged. Quite a number go
to the mountain streams, where the
trout are not so large, but the chances
better for getting the limit.
While the writer of this item does
not expect to be numbered among the
hosts next Monday morning he knows
of several fellows who have a pro-
nounced case of troutitis, and the only
hope for them is a day or two at their
favorite trout holes. Unless some-
thing unforseen intervenes they’ll be
out bright and early next Monday
morning whipping the streams and
come home so dog-goned tired at night
they’ll hardly be able to tell of the big
ones they lost, but not a man will ad-
mit that he didn’t have the time of
his life.
Court Refused to Grant Mandamus.
George Summers, a resident of
Boggs township, recently instituted
mandamus proceedings against the
Centre county commissioners to com-
pel them to build a bridge over Bald
Eagle creek leading over to the Ma-
sonic camp, near Snow Shoe Intersec-
tion, and also to the homes of some
eight or ten families living on that side
of the creek. The old bridge that of-
forded passage across the stream at
that place was so damaged by high
water several years ago that it is un-
fit for use, and it has never been re-
paired because of the fact that the
Boggs township supervisors maintain-
ed it was a county bridge and the
county commissioners refused to ad-
mit that contention.
A hearing in the matter was heid
before Judge Quigley on Tuesday
morning. Mr. Summers was repre-
sented by S. D. Gettig and James C.
Furst Esqs., while Harry Keller Esq.,
appeared for the county commission-
ers. Both sides submitted testimony
in support of their contention after
which the case was argued and the
court promptly dismissed the proceed-
ings and placed the costs upon the pe-
titioner. One of the contentions of
the petitioner was that the county had
appropriated a sum of money toward
repairs on the bridge some twelve
years ago, but the court sustained
Mr. Keller's argument that admitting
such to be the case that did not make
the bridge a county institution. The
question of building the bridge is now
up to the supervisors of Boggs town-

Forest Trees—Seedlings—Free.
District forester William F. Dague,
of Clearfield, reports that approxi-
mately two and a quarter million trees
will be shipped from the Clearfield
nursery this spring. All of these
trees will be distributed free of
charge by the Department of Forest-
ry to private planters throughout the
State. The only expense that the
planters must meet is the cost of
packing and shipping, which rarely
exceeds 75 cents per thousand.
During the last year the size of the
Clearfield forest nursery has been
doubled. By the middle of summer a
total of eight acres will be in seed
beds. It is estimated that the annu-
al output of the nursery by 1925 will
be from six to ten million forest trees.
This means that the Clearfield nursery
will produce annually enough trees
to reforest at least 6,000 acres of bar-
ren and waste land in Pennsylvania.

BUSH.—In the passing away of
Mrs. Louisa Tomb Bush, at her apart-
ment in the Bush Arcade at two
o'clock last Friday morning, Belle-
fonte lost one of its oldest, if not the
oldest, woman resident. Afflicted with
an affection of the heart for several
years she nevertheless was possessed
of remarkable vitality even up to the
evening before her death.
A daughter of George and Jane
Humes Tomb she was born at Jersey
Shore on January 5th, 1837, hence had
reached the age of 86 years, 3 months
and 1 day. Her girlhood life was
spent in the town of her birth where
she attended the district school, later
completing her education in a board-
ing school at Canandagua, N.Y. Her
father was a prominent contractor in
his day and generation, having con-
structed a portion of the old Pennsyl-
vania canal, the big dam on the Sus-
quehanna river at Williamsport and
the old “Camel-back” bridge at Har-
risburg, famed in song and story by
Charles Dickens, novelist. After
completing her education Miss Louisa
evinced more or less interest in her
father’s business and spent consider-
able time with him on his various con-
tracting jobs and in this way devel-
oped a business instinct which in later
years became a predominating feature
in her life.
On December 14th, 1858, she mar-
ried Daniel G. Bush, a young lawyer
of Bellefonte, and the first months of
their married life were spent in the
old hotel where the Brockerhoff house
now stands. Later they began house-
keeping on the corner of Bishop and
Spring streets in what is now the Mec-
Clure property, where they lived un-
til 1867 when Mr. Bush built his large
and handsome residence on Spring
street, where she lived until recently
when she moved into the apartment
built and furnished especially for her
comfort in the Bush Arcade.
Though educated for the law and a
member of the Centre county bar Mz.
Bush soon lost ‘his interest in practic-
ing his profession and devoted his en-
ergies to the real estate business,
building the Bush Arcade, the Bush
house, the McClain block and several
dozen frame houses in and near Belle-
fonte, as well as acquiring landed in-
terests in other portions of Centre
county as well as in the south, with
the result that when he died in Sep-
tember, 1886, he left an unusually
large estate to the care of his widow.
Mrs. Bush took charge of the prop-
erty and for thirty-six years figured
as the directing head of all the busi-
ness interests, with the result that the
bulk of the estate is still intact. She
was a woman of strong will power and
dominating character which enabled
her to cope with any man in business
dealings of any character. Well edu-
cated and a great reader she was an
interesting conversationalist and an
engaging hostess for any occasion. A
during her early life she later trans-
ferred her support to the Episcopal
- Her survivors include one daughter
and two sons, Mrs. Elizabeth Calla-
way and George T. Bush, of Belle-
fonte, and Harry P. Bush, of Medford,
Oregon. She also leaves two sisters,
Mrs. H. L. Moulton and Miss Amanda
Tomb, both of Philadelphia, as well
as two grand-daughters, and two great
Revs. M. DePui Maynard and David
R. Evans had charge of the funeral
services which were held at her apart- |
ment at four o’clock on Monday after-
noon, after which burial was made in
the Union cemetery. ;

Springs, Centre county, on August

year. She married Mr. Beezer in
May, 1900, and the first part of their
married life was spent in Bellefonte.
In 1914 they moved to Philipsburg
and that had been her home ever since.
She was a life-long member of the
Catholic church and a woman whose
greatest concern was her husband and
children. She had many friends both
in Philipsburg and Bellefonte who sin-
cerely mourn her death. Surviving
her are her husband and the following
children: Ruth, Ferdinand Jr.
Charles, Mary and Christine, all at

i Many Delegates Attend First Annual
Gathering in Bellefonte Last
In the neighborhood of one hun-
dred and fifty young people from all
over the State attended the council
meeting for young people held in
Bellefonte the latter part of last
week under the auspices of the State
Sabbath School association. The in-
stitute sessions were held in the Pres-
byterian church and were not in the
nature of public gatherings, although
they were not closed to any one wish-
ing to attend.
The first session was held on Thurs-
day evening when Dr. M. Hadwin
Fischer talked on the qualifications
for leaders. Another important sub-
ject discussed was the need of leaders
in the Christian church.
Morning watch meetings were held at
seven o’clock both on Friday and Sat-
urday and various questions of vital
interest to the church and Sunday
i school were discussed by such able
{ workers as Edward H. Bonsall, junior |
' State young people’s superintendent;
i John L. Alexander, young people’s su-
| perintendent International Sunday
| school council; G. Frank Shelby, gen-
eral secretary of the Brotherhood of
St. Andrew; Esther I. Williams, State !
young people’s superintendent, and
Floyd W. Tomkins, minister of Holy |
Trinity church, Philadelphia.
The only public meeting held was
that in the Methodist church on Fri-
day evening, which was addressed by
Dr. Tomkins, a report of which will
be found in another column.
When the delegates arrived in
Bellefonte they registered at the Y.
M. C. A. and were then assigned to
their places of entertainment among
the citizens of the town. This enter-
tainment included principally their
lodging as most of them took their
meals at the Y. M. C. A., the meals
being served by the Ladies Auxiliary,
the Y. W. girls and the Y. boys. All
told about one thousand meals were
served and as evidence of the fact
that all the delegates were pleased
with their entertainment is the fol-
lowing resolution of thanks, which
was unanimously adopted by the con-
The officers and members of the State
Young People’s Council, assembled at
Bellefonte for their first annual meeting,
desire to express to all those who have had
any part in entertaining them during their
stay in Bellefonte, their most hearty ap-
preciation of the splendid hospitality ex-
tended to them.
Their thanks are extended especially to |
all those citizens who have so kindly open-
ed their homes and have so bountifully
entertained them; also they wish to ex-
press to the ladies of the Women's Aux-
iliary, the girls of the Y. W. C. A. and the
boys of the Y. M. C. A., their thanks for
their splendid and attentive service. The
meals have been especially fine and well
and promptly served, which has contrib-
uted much to the comfort of the delegates
and has facilitated the running of the con- !
ference. i

Lost Her New Spring Bonnet. |
Last Saturday evening a lady from
Pleasant Gap, and very well known !
at her former home here, accepted an |
invitation to ride to the Gap in an.
open car rather than wait for the bus .
at a later hour.
When near Axe Mann 2a sudden gust i
of wind lifted a handsome new spring |
hat, she had just purchased, from her
head and whisked it away. Of course
they ran some distance before the car
could be reversed, but when its occu-
pants got back to the place the hat
had gotten off there was not a sign
of the new headgear anywhere.
Hunt as they did it couldn’t be found
and a more thorough search next
morning failed to reveal it. It was
rather an expensive hat and should
any one have found it the owner would
be very happy if it were returned to
the Hat Shop in Bellefonte.

——Rev. George E. Smith, pastor of
the Bellefonte United Brethren
churchy is at present engaged in Sun-
day school Brotherhood and Christian
Endeavor institute work in the Alle-
gheny conference of his church, which
extends from the Susquehanna river
to the Ohio State line. He began the
work last week in his own church,
where two very interesting sesions
were held, then went to Richfield and
Mapleton. This week his work has
been at Bellwood, Punxsutawney and
Woodland, while next week he will be
in the Johnstown district. His super-
intendent has asked him to fill a va-
cant pulpit in the conference next
Sunday consequently the pulpit of the
Bellefonte church will be filled by the
pastor emeritus, Rev. G. W. Emenhi-
zer, in the morning and by Rev. T. W.
Young in the evening.

——The large barn on the Horace
Fredericks farm, at Romola, occupied
by James McCloskey, was entirely de-
stroyed by fire on Saturday, includ-
ing five head of cattle, eight pigs, a
number of chickens, all his grain and
feed and many farm implements. The
loss is estimated at $5,000, on which
there was only a small insurance. The
origin of the fire is a mystery.
Interesting Popular Meeting.
A large congregation attended the
Methodist church on Friday evening
of last week to enjoy the popular serv-
ice arranged in connection with the
State young people’s worker’s confer-
ence. Dr. Floyd Tomkins, of Philadel-
phia, was the principal speaker of the
evening and took as his theme, “The
Bible in the Home.” After paying a
fitting tribute to the greatness of the
American home he expressed, in a
very telling manner, his reasons for
believing that the Bible would still
further enrich the home. “It is the
book which holds the secret of forgiv-
ness, forbearance, fellowship, courage,
happiness and peace; and these are
the qualities that make for ideal home
life. Do not be disturbed by the at-
tempts of the enemies of the Bible to
overthrow the sacred Scripture; for
their efforts will all be in vain. Sci-
entific and archaeological discoveries
have tended to strengthen the author-
ity and worth of the Bible.” Dr. Tom-
kins has a host of friends who have
appreciated his weekly comment on
the Sunday school lessons, and who
were glad of the opportunity of list-
ening to this splendid message.

tendent of the young people’s depart-
ment of the Sunday school association,

conference and the results achieved
for all the churches.

Mr. J. L. Alexander, who is the head
of the department of young people’s
work in the International Sabbath
school association. The speaker threw
a flood of light on the boyhood life of
Jesus in his unfolding of the four-fold
life-text, Luke 2:52, Mr. Alexander
has done more for young people in a
religious way, than perhaps any man
living. As a promoter of camp con-
ferences he has done much to recruit
leadership for Christian activities. The
anthem rendered by the choir was
greatly appreciated and the whole
evening was one of inspiration.
