in Tyrone, by M. R. Johnson, who had
a big truck load. There were apples

‘tonight followed by a debate with the
Brief Session of Borough Council on
Monday Evening.
Mr. Flack, of the South ward, was
the only absentee at the regular meey-
ing of borough council, on Monday
evening. Burgess Hard P. Harris
was present and brought to the at-
tention of council an invitation ex-
tended to the burgess of Bellefonte
by Mayor William Hale Thompson,
of Chicago, to attend a conference.
to be held at the Sherman house, In
that city, December 12-15, in the in-
terest of airports. Burgess Harris
expressed the opinion that it might
more firmly establish the Bellefonte
landing field to be represented at the
gathering and he suggested Robert F.
Hunter as a good man to send. Pres-
ident John S. Walker suggested that
the burgess go and make the trip by
airplane but Mr. Harris did not relish
the suggestion. The question of send-
ing a representative was held over
until the next meeting of council.
John Benner, his two sons and son-
in-law, were again present to endeav-
or to induce council to extend the
sewer to their homes on Reservoir hill,
offering to pay thirty dollars each for
a tap just as secon as the sewer 1s
completed. This question has been
pending before council for a year
or longer, owing to the fact that it
will require six hundred feet of sewer !
to reach the Benner properties, and
the cost thereof will be In the neigh-
borhood of eight hundred dollars.
The matter was finally referred to the
Street committee and borough mana-
ger te make a canvass of other resi-
dents- in that locality and ascertain
just how many will pay for a tap, and
to report at next meeting of council.
A written communication was re-
ceived from the building committee
of the Moose Temple theatre request-
ing permission to construct a marquee
at the entrance to the theatre. The
matter was referred to the Special
committee for investigation and re-
The Street committee reported con-
siderable work done since the last
meeting of council in cleaning streets
and putting them in shape for winter,
opening sewers, etc., also the collec-
tion of $120 for sewer permits.
Mr. Emerick called the attention of
council to a bill of Kofman & Co., for
hauling, dating back to May, stating
that all such bills should be rendered
every month, and that in the future
he would not approve a bill that was
permitted to run that long.
The Water - committee reported
some repairs made and the collection
of $53.55 on the 1925 water duplicate
and $450 on the 1926.
The Finance committee requested
the renewal of a note for $18,000 ana
the execution of two new notes, one
for $2000 and one for $3000, all op
‘Bellefonte to Lose State Highway
which were authorized.
Bills totalling four thousand ‘dol-
lars were approved for payment after
which council adjourned.
_ Secretary of Highways James L.
Stuart has announced a reorganiza-
tion of the State Highway Depart-
ment to go into effect the first of the

the district offices from Bellefonte

Centre county was represented in
the winning classes of the fifth an-
nual Pennsylvania State standard pro-
duction poultry show held at the
Pennsylvania State College October
27th to 29th. Over 500 birds were in
exhibition, the Honesdale poultry
farm, of Honesdale, winning a ma-
jority of the first prizes.
Leading poultrymen from thirty-
four counties were at the show and
attended meetings of the State Poul- |
the Pennsylvania
try association and
State Baby Chick association. All the
baby chicks produced this year by the
delegates present, if placed in single
file, would reach from Pittsburgh to
New York by way of Harrisburg and
Philadelphia. They produced nearly
a million chicks. A feature of the
big poultry gathering was the display
and explanation of the State College
method of raising birds from chicks to
maturity entirely in confinement as a
means for combatting coccidiosis and
intestinal parasites,
Several Centre county poultrymen
took advantage of the show and were

been located in Bellefonte. !
Many Wild Turkeys Killed in Coun-
ty Reports Indicate.
If reports are to be relied upon
more wild turkeys have been bagged
by hunters in Centre county this year !
than in any season in the past ten
years. And a still more encouraging
fact is that they have been found in
almost every mountainous section, ev-
idence that the birds are not only in-
creasing in numbers but are spreading
out and with proper care on the part
of hunters should become very plenti-
ful within a few years. But if all the
hunters are as merciless on the birds
as a report reaching this office from
Huston township, it will only be :
question of a few seasons until the '
turkey crop will be obliterated. Ac-
cording to the report some of the
residents of that locality had kept
pretty close tab on a flock of four-
teen turkeys and on the opening day !
a large party of hunters went after
the birds with the result that they
are alleged to have bagged twelve ot
the fourteen. The turkeys were prac-
tically surrounded and had small
chance of escaping. :
“In addition to turkeys hunters hate.

er kinds of small game, the kill of
pheasants this year exceeding that of

said that the season will close for all

Save Your Old Hats,
When your hat gets old and looks
shabby and you are about to throw it
away, remember that the dingy look-
ing headgear is not as nearly gone as
you might imagine from its appear-
ance. : |
The felt in a hat is invariably good
and can be reyived with suprising ef-
fect. :
A little cleaning, reblocking and a
new band often will make that old hay |
you put on when cleaning the ashes i
cout of the cellar, look like it had just |
come out of a haber-dasher’s show
window. i
Stickler and Koons, tailors and dry
cleaners, 8 West Bishop street, Belle-
fonte, have just installed a new ma- |
chine for renovating hats. There is |
none like it between Johnstown and ;
Harrisburg. For $1 they will make ;
that hat your are about to throw away
look almost as good as the day you
bought it.
Try it and be convinced.

Last Saturday. :

snow last Saturday, a record-breaker |
for this time of year. The snow fell |
between midnight, Friday night, and
Saturday morning, with quite a hard
storm during Saturday forenoon.
Considerable of the snow melted in
Bellefonte but at that it was three
inches in depth at some places Satur-
day morning, while hunters aver that
it was easily six inches in the moun-
tains. Colder weather followed the
snow and the first freezing weather
was on Sunday night.

Bellefonte High Held Tyrone to Score-
less Tie.
In the mud and grime of Hughes
field, the result of Saturday morning’s
snow-fall, Bellefonte and Tyrone High
school football players fought to a
scoreless tie on Saturday afternoon,
but owing to the condition of the field ;
it was not a fair test of the relative
strength’ of either team. ~~ = i
' Bellefonte ‘had the edge on Tyrone
during most of the game, as is evi-:
denced by the fact that the locals
made eleven first downs to seven for
Tyrone. On two occasions Bellefonte
had the ball within three yards of the
Tyrone goal line, only to lose it on
fumbles. Twice Tyrone was also
within striking - distance but both
times were prevented from scoring by
the referee’s whistle, once at the end
. of the first half and again at the end
of the game,
Neither team was able to do much
in the air, owing to the wet and slip-
pery ball. Bellefonte tried only two
forward passes and neither one was
successful, while Tyrone had no bet-
ter success. Bellefonte made more
headway through ' the Tyrone line
than the latter was able to accomplish
through the Bellefonte defense, but
Bellefonte also did more fumbling
than Tyrone. The longest run of the
day was made by Confer, around Ty-
rone’s right end, about twenty yards.
Capt. Priest was Tyrone's best ground
gainer. Considering the weather and
condition’ of the field all the players
did remarkably well. |
This afternoon, at 2:30 ’clock, Belle-
fonte will play Lewistown on Hughes
field, and as it will be mostly a holi-
day every football fan should go out
and cheer for the Bellefonte team.
The Bellefonte Academy lost to the
Naval Academy Freshman, on Satur-
day, by the score of 12 to 7, and State
College won from George Washington |
13 to 7. The small score is accounted
for by the fact that the greater part ;
of the game was played by State’s
second string men.

by Auto.
Borough manager J. D. Seibert had
a narrow escape from serious injury,
last Friday evening, when he was hit |
and knocked down by an automobile

walking over the crossing from the |

dent, contends that he did not see him
