——On a recent drive on the state
highway from Bellefonte to Pennsyl-
vania Furnace we noticed only one
field of wheat that looked really prom-
ising and that was on the old Patton
farm just at the east end of Pine
Grove Mills. Generally speaking the
wheat fields look very spotted and far
worse than they did just after they
came out from under their winter
blanket of snow.
Fire on Saturday night burned
the old station building of the Belle-
fonte Central railroad company at
Hunter’s park, as well as a shed and
a number of ties belonging to the rail--
road company. The fire occurred
about twelve o’clock and its origin is
unknown. The Bellefonte fire depart-
ment sent up a pumper but most of
the damage was done when the fire-
men reached there.
In their opening game on
Hughes field, last Saturday afternoon,
the Bellefonte Academy baseball team
went down in defeat at the hands of
that more seasoned aggregation, the
St. Francis College nine, but the con-
test was a good one, nevertheless, as
the score was 3 to 2. Bellefonte
Academy’s next home game will be
with the Bucknell Freshmen on Satur-
day afternoon, May 4th.

Main’s circus to send a number of
clowns and acrobats to the institu-
tion on the day they show here to give
an exhibition for the prisoners. The
actors will go to Rockview immediate-

«of Highland Park, effective April 15th.
Highland Park is in reality a suburb
.of Dallas and the city council have in
contemplation the expenditure this
year of $350,000 in improvements. Mr.
«Cooper is quite well known by many
people in Bellefonte as the husband of
Miss Mary Morris, who spent her
girlhood with the Misses Benner.

John’s boys’ club, to be given in the
parish house, west Lamb street,
Thursday and Friday evenings, May
3rd and 4th, at 8 o’clock. The show
promises to be better than ever, and
those who have enjoyed former per-
formances will not have to be urged
to secure their tickets early so as to
be sure of securing seats. There will
undoubtedly be crowded houses both
nights. The proceeds will go towards
the Boy Scouts’ camping fund.
——Any person wanting to leave
Bellefonte by train naturally goes to
the Pennsylvania railroad station, as
that is the only one in Bellefonte, and
everybody wishing te see the best mo-

gratified. In the ten or a dozen years
he has had charge of the Scenic man-
ager T. Clayton Brown has always
given the people of Bellefonte the
best pictures obtainable, thus estab-
lishing a reputation for the Scenic
that extends throughout the county.

'Sutton-Abramsen Engineering Co.,
{from its present lcation to a new one.
The removal has been necessitated
by plans for enlarging the machine
shops with an addition of 44x17 feet.
Lately the company has installed
$20,000 worth of new machinery, a
new drill press and the last thing in

now well nigh complete.
January, February and March were
the largest production months in the
company history and orders on the

A New Oil Enterprise for Bellefonte.
On Monday ground was broken for
‘lishment in Bellefonte. It is located
on part of the old car works property,
| just north of the plant of the Sutton-
! Abramsen Engineering Co.
Frank M. Crawford, of the Potter-
Hoy Hardware Co., is to be head of
the new concern, we understand, but
his son-in-law, Horace J. Hartranft,
and his son Francis are to be the ac-
tive partners in the enterprise. They
expect to handle all grades of com-
mercial oil and will be ready for busi-
ness just as soon as the tanks can be
Mr. Hartranft has been in the oil
business in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for some
years and has had considerable ex-
perience, both in the producing and
selling ends of the business. He is
a son of H. J. Hartranft, of this place,
and will return to Bellefonte just as
soon as he can sell his home in Tulsa.
Order of DeMolay to be Instituted

‘new organization being sponsored by
i Constans Commandery No. 33 Knights
Templar, and which will be instituted
‘at a meeting in the opera house some

The application for letters tem-
porary for a charter has been accept-

probability that the number will reach
one hundred by the date of institution.
The board of advisors is composed of
the following Knights Templar: Wil-
son I. Fleming, chairman; Dr. S. M.
Nissley, Nelson E. Robb, Myron M.
Cobb, George T. Bush and Harry Men-
old, all of Bellefonte; Frank L. Wetz-

Membership in the new Order is
open to any boy between the ages of
16 and 20 years who meet the approv-
al of the board of advisors. Member-

J. H. & C. K. Eagle Co. Announces In-
crease in Wages.
The board of governors of the J. H.
& C. K. Eagle company, incorporated,
on Tuesday morning announced to
their employees a voluntary increase
in wages in every department, and at
all their plants, effective as of April
9th. This announcement is most com-
mendable and illustrates the compa-
ny’s attitude of fairness towards its
co-workers, and also the efficient man-
agement which has made this action
possible, This announcement on the
part of the company has not only
brought rejoicing to thousands in their
employ but also to the communities
in which their plants are located. The
magnitude of this general increase can
be visualized only by a realization of
the fact that it will approximate one-
half million dollars a year, a substan-
tial part of which will be distributed
in Bellefonte and vicinity, indicating
that the J. H. & C. K. Eagle Co. Inc.,
is a big factor in the life and prosper-
of this community.
In addition to the general increase,
the company has established a very
satisfactory starting weekly wage for
girls and boys who have no knowledge
of, or experience in, the silk industry.
This action on the part of the compa-
ny affords the young girls and boys
desirous of employment an unusual
opportunity to learn silk manufactur-
ing at relatively higher starting wages
paid for learners. Furthermore, the
company has established an unusual
high wage scale for night shift work-
ers, which should be attractive to the
young men of the community who
have had previous experience at the
silk mill,

The Umbholtz Brothers Deny the
Charge of Unsportsmanship.
The sensation in Bellefonte last
week was the fishing excursion of the
Umbholtz brothers, Roy and Elmer, of
Tyrone, which came here on the open-
ing day of the season and caught thir-
ty-nine—it is said—of the large trout
in the Bush house dam, or, in other
words, the open part of Spring creek |
immediately below the High street
bridge. With their creels overflowing
they went back home and won all the
prizes offered by John D. Cox, of that
place, for catches of trout on the open-
ing day.
Two days later the brothers appear-
{ed here again and undertook to re-
| peat their big day’s catch on the 16th.
They were stopped, however, after an
hour or so by Warden Mosier because
{| Fish Commissioner Buller had order-
ed that part of Spring creek closed,
after he had been communicated with
by persons interested in preserving
the trout that have afforded so much
interest to travelers from all parts of
‘the country.
The action was quick and drastic
and some of the Bellefonte papers
played it up rather strong.
Before us is a copy of the Tyrone
Herald, under date of April 21st, in
which the Umbholtz brothers express
their regret at being classed as poor
sports and denying some of the acts
with which they were charged.
Being somewhat of a fisherman our-
selves probably it were better that we
i should not pass judgment on them.
. Be that as it may we saw them doing
‘on the second trip what leads us to
believe that what they were accused
of on the first is true.
The portion of the stream in which
they fished was open. They had a per-
fect right to be there, even though
most of the Bellefonte fishermen had
gone miles away rather than take
trout that afford so much pleasure to
others throughout the year. It wasn’t
the fact that they took the trout. It
was the manner.
i On Wednesday we saw the two
brothers with a fat man, who smoked
a pipe and had a fishing license on his
hat, immediately above the bridge,
the closed portion of the stream, the
fat man leaned over the walk railing
and threw hamburg steak into a school
of fish. Then he leaned far over the
‘rail and by throwing the meat under
the bridge undertook to entice the fish
to the lower or open side of it. Im-
mediately the Umbholtz brothers went
to the lower side, produced a rope lad-
der, fastened it to the rail and let
i themselves down into the stream. One
of them, with hamburg steak on his
hook began casting up under the
bridge right over the spot where he
could see an eighteen inch trout ly-
ing. We stood right over him. We
saw his line go under the bridge and
WE called his attention to the fact
that that was prohibited. After anoth-
er cast or so he moved down to the
position the Herald says he was in,
but his intent was clearly to take fish
in what he knew was preserved area.
| It requires no skill to take those
fish, equipped as the Umbholtz brothers
were. They had steel rods, heavy
lines and were using as bait the food
that is fed to them every day, almost,
in the year by residents or strangers
who love to watch them strike at the
ground meat.
As a purely sporting proposition the
trout had no chance. With a hook as
big as a ship’s anchor away down in
their belly and a steel rod behind it |
he would be a poor fisherman who
couldn’t land all he wanted of them.
And had the Tyrone prize winners
used a 14 or 16 fly on a 5 oz. rod in
that clear water and fought a fair
fight with the tame trout we would
have had much admiration for them
had they creeled as many as they did.
As we said last week: They might
just as well, when next hunting season
comes in, get out their guns and shoot
some boy’s pet rabbits then parade
around and claim prizes for the big-
gest bags of game.

A Disastrous Fire.
The big barn on the B. F. Homan
farm, probably better known as the
Belle Lytle farm, about a mile south
of State College, was entirely destroy-
ed by fire on Sunday morning togeth-
er with three horses, four cows, all of
last year’s crops of wheat, cern, oats,
hay, etc., and all the farming imple-
ments except one wagon, a plow and
a harrow.
The farm is occupied by Merrill Ho-
man and family. Mr. Homan was not
at home, the only person there being
his wife. The fire broke out about
nine o'clock and was discovered by
Col. Theodore Davis Boal, who was on
his way to State College. He and his
chauffeur assisted Mrs. Homan in
saving a portion of the stock but they
were unable to get all the horses and
cows out of the building owing to the
rapid spread of the flames. As it was
Mrs. Homan was badly scorched about
the hands and face while Col. Boal
and his chauffeur were also slightly
The barn was one of the best in Col-
lege township and had only recently
been improved by the erection of a
large straw shed. The State College
fire company responded to an appeal
for help and while they were unable to
save the barn they rendered good
service in preventing the spread of the
flames. Mr. Homan estimates his loss
at $9,000, on which he had only a par-
tial insurance, and as he is just a be-
ginner on the farm he feels the loss
most keenly. The origin of the fire is
a mystery.

The overture or first part will be
shorter this year than usual but the
quality of the music and jokes will be
better than ever.
The second part will include toe and
fancy dancing by Miss Gale Mitchell,
sand and buck dancing by Herbert
Beezer, comic and novelty dancing by
Frank Reynolds, of Elmira, N. Y., mu-
sic by a male quartette composed of
Cecil Walker, Capt. Frederick Rey-
nolds, James P. Seig and Clarence
Williams, musical specialties by Sam
Deibert and George Johnson, accom-
panied by the Academy orchestra.
Wetzler’s band in their dandy wuni-
forms will lead the parade at five
o’clock on the evening of May 17th.
On all previous appearances the
Academy minstrels have been given
in the interest of some benefit, such
as the Red Cross, Troop L, the Belle-
fonte hospital, the firemen and the Y.
M. C. A. This year, however, the pro-
ceeds will be devoted to laying a wa-
ter pipe from the borough line to the
swimming pool on Hughes field in or-
der to afford an ample supply of pure
water for swimming time and to flood
the pool for skating in the winter.
