Bellefonte Council Approves Purchase
of Land Near Spring. J
Seven members were present at
the regular meeting of borough coun-
cil, on Monday evening. The Street
committee reported various repairs
and the collection of $25.00 for sewer
The Water committee presented the
report of the borough manager which
included the collection of $61.75 on the
1923 water duplicate. The committee
also recommended that the 1924 du-
plicate, on which there is a balance of
approximately six thousand dollars
uncollected, be withdrawn from the
Keystone Power corporation and plac-
ed in the hands of the borough man-
ager for collection, which was author-
ized by the vote of council. The com-
mittee then recommended that the
water rate for 1925 be fixed at the
same rate as for 1924, that the du-
plicate be prepared, appeal day set
and the duplicate turned over to the
Keystone Power corporation for col-
lection as soon as possible.
Secretary Kelly read the written
offer of the Bellefonte Lumber com-
pany to sell to the borough the strip
of land south of the spring, as de-
scribed in last week’s “Watchman,”
for the sum of $3,000, and on the rec-
“ommendation of the Water committee
the officers of council were authorized
to execute the purchase.
The Finance committee requested
the renewal of two notes for $2,000
each, which was authorized.
The Fire and Police committee rec-
ommended the painting and testing of
the fireplugs, suggesting that instead
of painting them white, the color be
either red or yellow. The matter was
referred to the committee with power.
The Sanitary committee reported
that Mr. Kerstetter had granted the
borough permission to fill up the big
hole near the Fishing Creek school
house with ashes and refuse, the only
proviso being that no garbage be
dumped there that might create an of-
fensive odor. The borough manager
was requested to keep close tab on the
dump to see that the stipulation is
strictly observed.
The theatre and show license or-
dinance, which has been on the table
most of the summer, was finally taken
up and passed finally by a vote of
every member present.
Bills to the amount of $2326.04 were
approved for payment after which
council adjourned.

The annual Williams family reun-
ion will this year be held in the John
Q. Miles grove, near Martha, on Sat-
urday, September 5th. The reunion

be completed and open by that time,
LEMON.—Capt. John Ross Lemon,
one of the best known residents of the
western end of Ferguson township,
passed away at his home at Gates-
burg at ten o’clock last Friday morn-
ing. A number of years ago the cap-
tain suffered a stroke of paralysis and
while he recovered to a great extent
it left him with a weak heart, very
susceptible to undue exertion. The
morning of his death he made no com-
plaint but just quietly passed away
while sitting in his easy chair.
He was a son of James and Mary
Ross Lemon, early settlers in the
Gatesburg region, where he was born
on April 26th, 1846, hence was 79
years, 3 months and 19 days old. As
a youth he learned the trade of a stone
mason but at the outbreak of the Civ-
il war, although still of tender years,
he enlisted in the Scott Guards, a lo-
cal company at Baileyville in com-
mand of Capt. Henry Stevens. This
was in June, 1561, and on September
2nd of that year the company was
mustered into the federal service at
Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, as Com-
pany E, of the 45th regiment Penn-
sylvania volunteers, and made the
color company of the regiment. Capt.
Lemon was with the company
throughout the four years of the war
and participated in some of the fierc-
est battles of the Virginia campaign.
He was honorably discharged in June,
Returning home he took up his res-
idence at Gatesburg and resumed his
work as a stone mason, an occupation
he followed a number of years. Later
he became interested in the iron ore
development in the western end of
Centre county and Huntingdon coun-
ty and for a number of years was in
charge of various operations. In pol-
itics he was a staunch Democrat and
some years ago was a candidate for
the nomination for county commis-
sioner but failed to secure the nomi-
nation. He was a life-long member
of the Gatesburg Lutheran church
and a member of William I. Furst
Post G. A. R., of Stormstown.
He married Miss Anna L. Grazier,
of Gatesburg, who survives, their only
son, Clarence Lemon, having died in
1920. He leaves, however, two broth-
ers and one sister, George Lemon,
living in Ohio; James, at Pittsburgh,
and Miss Mary, of Gatesburg. Fu-
neral services were held in the Gates-
burg Lutheran church at two o’clock
on Monday afternoon by Rev. Isaac
Kreider, of Duncansville, a life-long
friend, assisted by Rev. Shultz, a for-
mer pastor. A squad of G. A. R. men
acted as honorary pall-bearers and the
remains were laid to rest in the Gates-
burg cemetery, within sight of his

garet Gilliland Gillen and was born at

at Milesburg but when overtaken with
ill health closed out his hotel and mov-

In 1900 he married Miss Ida Ho-

TRESSLER.—Ezra Tressler, a well
known retired farmer, died at his
home at State College last Friday
evening, following a prolonged illness
with a complication of diseases.
He was a son of Daniel and Mary
Dauberman Tressler and was born at

was a farmer by occupation and his

Miss Martha Keller who survives with
three children, Robert, of Altoona;
Mrs. J. S. Miller and Mrs. J. A. Cra-
mer, both of State College. He also

Catal aa eto pL
twenty years ago was a resident of
Bellefonte while in active charge as
superintendent of the Nittany Iron
company, and who has kept up his as-
sociations of the years spent here by
frequent visits, died at the DeGraff
hospital in North Tonawanda on Sat-
urday morning following an illness of
several months.
He was a native of Lansing, N. Y.,
where he was born sixty-eight years
ago. In his early life he published a
newspaper but later became interested
in the iron business and finally came
to Bellefonte to take charge of the
Nittany Iron company. He spent sev-
eral years here then went to Cairo,"
Ind., where he took: charge of a fur-
nace operated by the Rogers-Brown
Co. Three years later he was sent to
Buffalo to look after the company’s
interests there but after a few years
moved to North Tonawanda to accept
the position of vice president and man-
ager of the Tonawanda Iron and Steel
company. Five years later he be-
came general manager of the Hersch-
ell-Spillman company but gave up
that position to become vice president
company, a ‘new concern organized
for the manufacture of card indexes.
The company prospered from the
start and is now doing a large vol-
ume of business yearly.
MOORE.—William A. Moore, who '
An Act of Kindness Liberally
Bellefonte people generally remem-
ber Miss Marie White, sister of Miss
Josephine White and a niece of Miss
Powell, but who is now Mrs. William
Hoopes, of West Chester, and will be
interested in the story of a “golden
rainbow” that proved a surprising ep-
isode in her life recently.
Some three years ago her husband,
William Hoopes, had quite a spell of
illness and was a patient in the West
Chester hospital for several weeks,
where he was visited almost daily by
Mrs. Hoopes. In the same room with
him was an aged bachelor, Baldwin
Breckenridge, a farmer of West Caln,
Pa. On her visits to her husband Mrs.
Hoopes also took occasion to say a
word of cheer to Mr. Breckenridge
and frequently divided with him the
home-cooked dainties, fruits, etec., she
took to the hospital for her husband.
The result was the aged man not only
and sales manager of the Kardex'
showed appreciation for the little acts
‘of kindness but grew quite fond of
Mrs. Hoopes and her little daughter
Several weeks ago Mr. Brecken-
ridge disappeared and a fortnight ago
his body was found lying on - the
ground in one of the fields of his farm,
Consider the Eyes of Your Child.
Only ten children in a hundred at
the age of nine years have even so-
called perfect eyesight. Statistics
show that one out of every eight
school children has seriously defective
If your child is one of the eight
whose eyes require attertion you
should see that they get it. You can-
not tell whether they are normal from
their appearance, for the eyes are wil-
ling servants and seldom complain un-
less they are severely overtaxed.
You would be well advised not to
make the mistake of thinking that
seemingly perfect vision means per-
fect eyes.
Wise parents guard the eyes of
ileir children by having them exam-
ined every six months. It is not true
that once they put on glasses they
will always have to wear them. By
wearing glasses when they are need-
ed the defect is often corrected so
that the glasses may be judiciously
dispensed with.
It is far better to be sure of such an
important matter than regret your
neglect later. During the short time
that intervenes before the little folks
go back to school you have opportuni-
ty of taking them. to Dr. Eva B.

ment until last Thursday when his

Mr. Moore’s many friends in Belle-
fonte naturally regret his passing
away, as he was a most genial and
companionable gentleman.
He is survived by his wife and one
son, Morgan Moore, of New York.
Burial was made at Homer, N. Y.
Where the Trout Were Evidently in
Hiding. :
A dispatch from Lock Haven on
Wednesday says:
Seventy-five tons of rock, mud and
straw were required to fill up the first
of nine sink holes in Fishing creek,
near here, All other holes have been
examined by engineers who have rec-
ommended they be filled up to prevent
the disappearance and drying up of
the stream with the resultant killing
of fish. The other holes will be filled
after the close of trout season.
Now we understand why the trout
editor of the “Watchman” always
came home empty-handed from his
numerous excursions to Fishing creek
during the open trout season. The
fish evidently took to cover in one of
the big sink holes described above and
he was unable to entice them from
the cool depths.

Members of the Old Fort Lodge of
Masons, No. 537, celebrated the fif-
tieth anniversary of the institution of
the lodge, at Centre Hall, on Wednes-
day evening. Quite a number of mem-
bers who have moved to other parts of
the State were back for the special
meeting, while among the guests were
a number of prominent members of
the order from Centre and adjoining
counties. It might be of interest to
note that not a single charter member
of the Old Fort lodge survives but
past master John J. Arney, of Centre
Hall, was the first candidate initiated
after the lodge was instituted.
——On Thursday afternoon of last
week sheriff E. R. Taylor, with the
assistance of three trusty prisoners,
loaded the fourteen and a half bar-
rels of beer confiscated in Fergyson
township, on Sam Wilson’s truck, con-
veyed it to the new dumping grounds
in Spring township and knocking in
the bungs allowed the foaming con-
tents to guzzle forth. Those who wit-
nessed the emptying of the beer aver
that it had the appearance of being
the old-style, geunine article, and, ap-
parently as good as the day it was put
in the barrels. The sheriff still has in
his cache in the jail the 172 cases of
beer confiscated from the Bellefonte
lodge of Moose, and sixty or more gal-
lons of moonshine.

——Bellefonte had a distinguished
visitor on Monday night in the per-
son of Commander Weyerbacher, of
the U. S. navy, but few people were
aware of the fact. He came here by
aeroplane and went on through to
Cleveland, Ohio. He intends making
the flight to the Pacific coast over the
trail of the night airmail, flying only
at night and whether his trip has any
significance for air service remains to
be seen. Commander Weyerbacher,
who had been one of the officers on the
Los Angeles, is a member of the ad-
visory committee on aeronautics.

Good Jobs Waiting Bright Young
During thé summer vacation sea-
son quite a number of college stu-
dents have been employed by the
State Highway Department in its
Bellefonte office and in connection
with the various road building con-

not official we have it on pretty good
authority that twenty or more college

the right kind of young men.

baseball games for the day had to be
cancelled on account of the rain.

Helps Men Win.
Success in any line is mostly ob-
tained by those who become complete-
ly equipped for the effort. For two
thousand years this sound principle
has stood unchallenged.
The Young Men’s Christian Asso-
ciation affords the young man oppor-
tunity for this complete equipment to
meet life’s problems. It offers gener-
al and specialized mental training.
physical training for the superior
health required to use this mental
training to the best advantage, voca-
tional guidance which makes for the
greatest satisfaction and economic ad-
vantage. :
It also affords opportunity for a
worth while, friendly sociability and
amusement, and most important,
christian example and associations
which help to build character.
For scores of years this five-fold
program of development of successful
youth through the Y. M. C. A. has
been at work exerting a powerful in-
fluence upon American business and
social life. It has poured an ever in-
creasing stream of well-rounded
young men into the arteries of our
nation’s activities.
More and more men of affairs are
appreciating the superior quality of
Y. M. C. A. trained men. They want
technical training and sound bgdies
but—most of all they want dependa-
ble character. The Bellefonte Y is
equipped to do the work demanded of
it in this community. Are you help-
ing it with your support? :

Quiet Week at State College. -
For the first time in many months,
The Pennsylvania State College cam-
pus will be a quiet spot this week as
members of the college teaching and
administrative staffs take a brief rest
preceding the opening of the fall term
early next month.
With Farmers’ week and the sum-
mer session following close on the
heels of commencement in June, there
was no lull in college activity at that
time; and following the close of the
summer session the annual vocational
conference and superintendents’ gath-
ering kept things moving last week.
With the institution of a “Freshman
week” this fall, college will open ear-
lier than ever before, for all new stu-
dents have been instructed to report
on the morning of September 9.
