New Hospital Ambulance Assured as
Result of Drive.
A new ambulance for the Centre
! County hospital is assured as a re-
jit of the drive recently made to

‘a meeting of the drive committee, on
: Tuesday evening, Mr. Sommerville,
oe chairman, reported the total
amount of money raised as $7812,

that when all 1eports are in the total
will probably reach eight thousand
dollars. Of this amount, however, a
little over $2300 was pledged for the

thousand dollars for general hospital

Ground Broken on Monday for New
Gas Plant,
Ground was broken, on Monday,
for the new plant of the Central
Pennsylvania Gas company near
Axe Mann, on the location of the
Clinton Markle farm as published in
last week’s Watchman. A gang of
| eighteen or twenty men were put to
work, preference being given to mar-
ried men with families who have been
out of work for some time. As ne-
cessity reuqires the force of men will
be increased until the maximum num-
ber needed has been employed.
Borough employees digging a ditch
on east Curtin street led to a report’
; that the company had also started
work in Bellefonte, but this was a
mistake. A survey is now being con-

customers. Just what headway is be-
ing made in this connection has not
been made public. When the survey
is completed those sections of Belle-
jfonte in which the most customers
have been obtained will be given the
preference when it comes to putting
down the supply pipes. The same

Samuel Baird Lands Biggest Daddy
Trout of Season.
Samuel Baird, of Lewistown, was
back at his home in Milesburg a few
days during the week and naturally
he tried his hand at fishing just to
see whether he had lost any of the
skill with which he pulled trout and
suckers from the waters of Spring
creek and the Bald Eagle in former
years. And the success that attended
his efforts, on Monday, would indicate
that he is still quite adept.
Fishing near the bridge, in Miles-
burg, at the junction of Spring creek
with Bald Eagle, he landed the big-
gest buck trout that has been caught
in Centre county this season. It
measured 29 inches in length and
weighed 73 pounds. Mr. Baird quit
right then and couldnt resist the
temptation to bring his prize beauty
to Bellefonte and display it to some
of the local fishermen ‘who pride
themselves on their skill at landing
the speckled beauties.
County Commissioners Will Not Build
Road Through Park.
Residents of Jail hill have been
considerably exercised, of late, over a
rumor that the County Commissioners
intended building a driveway in the
rear of the court house through the
park. When seen this week County
Commissioner Spearly stated that the
matter had never been considered by
the commissioners, and that all he
had heard of it was talk on the
streets. . He stated that to build such
a driveway would cost at least two
thousand dollars and would be no ma-
terial benefit, so far as he could see.
Then again, it could not help but mar
the beauty of the park between the
court house and the jail, and the com-
missioners will not do anything to
spoil the park.
