Borough Council Held Lengthy Session
on Monday Evening.
Every member of borough council
with the exception of Mr. Brouse, of
the West ward, was present at the
regular session on Monday evening.
The secretary presented another com-
munication from Harrisburg asking
what council has done in the matter of
$32.00 of fines collected from automo-
bilists for violation of the traffic laws
by former burgess Walker and burgess
Harris and turned over to the borough.
Harrisburg wants the money but the
borough solicitor has advised with-
holding payment until a test case now
in the courts has been decided.
The Street committee reported re-
pairing south Thomas street and the
collection of ten dollars for a sewer
permit. The committee further re-
ported that the residents of east Burn-
side street are anxious to have the
sewer extension requested constructed
at once. This brought forth a pro-
longed discussion on costs, sewer tap
charges, etc., the matter finally being
referred to the committee with power
so far as the sewer extension is con-
cerned and also with instructions to
work out a more equitable system of
costs for further extensions, taps, ete.
The Water committee reported the
collection of $86.25 on the 1925 water

big stack at the old steam heating
plant had been blown down with dyna-
mite cn Monday evening. The commit-
tee also suggested that several deep
foundations and pits should be fenced
in. The matter was referred to the
committee and burgess Harris.
The Finance committee reported that
according to the borough solicitor
council could not do otherwise than
grant the request of the Richelieu
theatre for a rebate on 1926 taxes, ow-
ing to the fact that the county
commissioners had reduced the valua-
tion on the theatre, and the committee
recommended that the rebate be allow-
ed. It was so ordered.
Regarding the movement to secure
a reduction of insurance rates in Belle-
fonte Mr. Emerick stated that he had
personally interviewed thirty-four
business men who signified their will-
ingness to contribute one year’s sav-
ing in insurance towards the expense
of adding the additional fire fighting
equipment necessary to secure the
reduction, and that he intended taking
the matter up at the regular meeting
of the Business Men’s association on
Tuesday evening. He suggested, how-
ever, that the secretary communicate
with the Underwriter’s Association
and get their statement in writing that
the reduction will be made if council
meets all the requirements specified.
At this stage in the proceedings
Robert F. Hunter and Bent L. Weaver
made their appearance as members of
a committee appointed by the Kiwanis
club to cooperate with council in plac-
ing markers in the important streets
of the town. They volunteered all the
assistance desired so far as coopera-
tion is concerned but nothing financial-
ly. President Walker informed the
gentlemen that the question of mark-
ers is now in the hands of councilman
Reynolds and they could confer with
Bills totaling $2459.97 were approv-
ed for payment after which council
Old Steam Heating Plant Stack Blewn
Down with Dynamite.
The last monument to the old steam
heating plant, the big ninety-six foot
brick stack, was blown down with
dynamite, on Monday afternoon, and
now all that remains of that one time
general utility are several deep holes
in the ground, thousands of very good
: brick and a few carloads of debris.
The blowing down of the stack has
been under consideration for some
time, as it has been deemed a menace
to school children and general traffic.
The job was undertaken, on Monday,
by Nathan Kofman. He put in two
shots of two sticks of dynamite each,
in the south and east sides of the
stack, about nine feet from the
ground, but the only damage they did
was to blow holes in the stack. They
then attempted to pull it down with
block and tackle, but the steel rope
broke without budging it. i
Then along came William Thomp-
son, one of the regular force of blast-
ing men at the American Lime and
Stone company, and he placed a
double charge of dynamite, six sticks
in all, at the foundation of the stack.
When they were put off the big pile
of brick seemed to rise in the air and
hang there for an instant, then
it crumbled to earth, then almost
where it stood. The good brick will,
of course, be reclaimed and sold to
any one desiring them.
Bloom—Buck.—Charles S. Bloom,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bloom, of
Pine Hall, and Miss Frances M. Buck,

afternoon, by the pastor, Rev. J. S.
English. Both young people are well

‘Last Winter a Good Season for Fur |
That pestiferous little animal, the
lowly skunk, is not only strong on
the scent, but his pelt is now a staple
line with fur dealers and trappers
generally reap a nice little harvest
from him, counting the bounty and
pelt together. And according to the
records of Jeremiah Zettle, of Spring
Mills, leading raw fur dealer in Cen-
tre county, his pelt is not only increas-
ing in popularity and value but the
animal is also increasing in numbers.
Mr. Zettle’s business as a fur buyer
is not confined to Centre county but
the bulk of his product is captured in
Centre county mountains. This year
he handled 4764 skunk pelts which is
715 more than he was able to buy last
year. In fact his entire line of pelts
showed a marked increase over last
year, while the value exceeded that of
the 1925 season by over five thousand
All this bears out the statement of
game protector Thomas A. Mosier,
who said that last winter was one of
the best for furs in a number of years.
He estimated the number of foxes
captured in the county at clcse to five
hundred. Among individual catches
recorded are those of J. A. Gummo,
31 foxes, 20 skunks and 4 minks; Guy
Rossman, 28 foxes, 18 skunks, 6 wea-
sels; William Gummo, 30 skunks and
4 minks; Andy Laird, 20 foxes; M. C.
Wieland, 10 skunks, all captured in
Ferguson township. Down Bald Ea-
gle valley Walter Davy, of Blanchard,
captured 3 wild cats, 11 gray foxes
and 4 weasels.
Outside of bear skins the pelt of
the mink is the most valuable of all,
being worth about ten dollars in the
raw, which, considering its size makes
it almost equal with seal. The next
in value is the red fox, which this
vear sold at an average price of a
little more than nine dollars.
Mr. Zettle’s complete list for the
season, with their valuation, is as fol-

Few of those who listen in to the

fonte boy. ;
He is Fred D. Weaver, a son of Mr.
and Mrs. J. C. Weaver, formerly of this
place, and while it was generally
known here that he had remarkable
talent as a boy, the family left Belle-
