MAKING MARKED PROGRESS.
Big Plant Shaping Up and Distribu-
tion System Being Rushed to
Marked progress is daily noted in
the development of the new gas com-
pany in all its phases—construction
of the gas manufacturing plant, high
pressure transmission line, distribu-
tion system, service connection, and
of the commercial department.
To obtain a picture of the situation
as it stands today one must take a
trip through the territory covered.
The place where the gas will be man-
ufactured should be the first object of
inspection. Near the plant site at
Axe Mann workmen of the Pennsyl-
vania Railroad company can be seen
cutting the main track on the Lewis-
burg branch and placing a switch for
a siding, over which coal and oil, the
raw materials for gas manufacture,
will be delivered to the plant after be-
ing shipped in from western Pennsyl-
vania fields. A concrete retaining
wall and piers for an elevated tres-
tle is being erected by the gas com-
pany’s crew. It is already easy to
visualize how the coal will be dumped
from the cars between the piers.
WATER LARGELY USED IN GAS.
Two separate building operations
attract the visitor’s attention. The
larger one, next to the trestle, will
carry the “generator building,” in
which the gas generators and also the
boilers will be housed. As a matter
of fact, and this will be surprising io
‘many, the principle raw product for
the gas to be made will be water, not
coal. It will be the main task of the
boilers to produce the necessary
steam which, in the generators, will
be decomposed into hydrogen and ox-
ygen upon coming in contact with hot
coal. On the western end of the gen-
erator building the foundation for a
high brick stack is being built, and
beyond this a flat, round cake of con-
crete excites the inquisitive mind. A
steel holder, 52 feet in diameter and
45 feet high will be placed on top .f
this cake to serve as a recipient for
the raw, hot gas as it leaves the gen-
Next in order is a smaller unit, the
“machinery building,” constructed of
steel and masonry, and which is now
in course of erection. After leavine
the above mentioned holder, which the
engineer in charge terms a “reliaf
holder,” the gas passes through a
cooler atid condenser, which will be
built close to the holder. then enters
the smaller building. There the gas
will go through a thorough washing
and cleansing process, then leaves tha
building to pass through a purifier in
which the sulphur will be removed
from the gas. This purifier will have
an unusually large capacity, to ex-
clude any possibility of odor in rooms
where gas is burning.
EQUIPMENT IN DUPLICATE.
Then the gas will again enter che
machinery building where it will be
metered and finally go over to the
storage ‘holder. The foundation for
this holder is on the rear end of the
lot and will have a diameter of 76
feet. It might here be mentioned that
655 bags of cement were used in the
concrete for the big cake foundation
for the holder. The steel tank on this
foundation will extend 80 feet in the
air and will consist of three telescop-
ing sections. The gas in this holder
will be of little more than atmospher-
ic pressure, and the pipes which are
to convey the gas to Bellefonte and
State College would have to be more
than a foot in diameter if the gas
would be transmitted at this pressure.
So, after leaving the storage holder
the gas is returned to the machinery
building and compressed to whatever
pressure may be necessary to send it
through the six inch mains to Belle-
fonte and State College. In order to
insure absolute continuity of service
once the gas is turned on all machin-
ery and equipment at the plant will
be provided in duplicate.
From the plant one can follow the
path the gas will take along the high-
way to Bellefonte. This part of the
transmission pipe line has already
been installed and tested, and will be
connected with the Bellefonte distri<
bution system at a point near Wag-
ner’s flouring mill. There the pres-
sure will be reduced to the amount
necessary for ranges and other home
Before going into Bellefonte turn
around and follow the transmissisn
line past the plant to Pleasant Gap
and on its way to State College. At
‘Pleasant Gap a short tap extends
through the village to supply gas to
the residents there and eventually to
extend across the mountain to Cen-
tre Hall. Continuing the trip toward
State College the crew laying the
transmission line is finally overtaken
at Lemont, having completed their
work that far. The laying of this
line is in charge of the Rich Pipe Line
company, of Bradford, and the speed
with which they are doing the work
has never been known in this part of
the country. The work is being done
under the inspection of the State
Highway Department, and so far has
met all the high pressure tests con-
ducted by the gas company. The
Rich company will also have charge
of laying all the main piping system
in State College.
DISPLAY ROOMS OPENED.
The gas company has secured a
display room in the Packard garage,
at State College, where a courteous
attendant is on hand to explain the
different sizes and makes of hot wa-

The Bellefonte distribution system
is being laid by the gas company’s
own crew. Anyone driving through

don’t have to detour on account of
the digging operations, as all cross-
ings are kept free, and at times of
heavy traffic an employee of the com-
pany di_ects cars with all the serious-
ness of a traffic policeman.
The opinion has been expressed that
in years to come settling will peeny
might here be mentioned that road

is claimed, will make a solid cover

Service lines have already been in-
stalled in houses in Bellefonte for
which applications have been filed.
The rate at which these applications
are coming in is astonishing. Three
hundred people have already signed
the red application card, and an av-
erage of thirty cards are being re-
A question has been brought up as
to when charges will begin. Th=
company will commence to charge a
consumer with the day he actually
receives gas service and bills will be
rendered the following month.
A permanent sales office has final-
ly been secured in Bellefonte. The
former Nighthart barber shop, on the
Diamond, was considered the best lo-
cation obtainable. Before the re-
modeling program will be carried
through the store will serve as a dis-
play room for all kinds of gas ap--
pliances. In addition to beautiful de-
signs of gas ranges, hot water heat-
ers, hot plates, radiant heaters, whica
give the home the romance of the old |
fire place, there will be a few new
achivements of present day technic,
such as gas house heating furnaces
and gas refrigerators, which will be
on display. The public is invited to
“come in and look them over.”
There are now 150 men working «mn
the construction of this gas property
only a very few of whom are from
outside of Centre county. The bene-
fit the town will derive from this ac-
tivity, not counting the direct busi-
nes placed with local dealers, should
not be considered in figures but pri-
marily from a national standpoint.
Just as an active member of a gang,
of workmen is of value to the boss, so
is the entire company of value to the
community, and the community in
turn can consider itself as a helpful
part collaborating in the country’s

Fair and Festival Nets $650.00 for
Wetzler Junior Band.
The treasury of the Wetzler Junior
band has been enriched to the amount
of $650.00 by the big fair and festi-
val held at Milesburg last Friday and
Saturday evenings by the band aux-
iliary. The total receipts were in ex-
cess of nine hundred dollars but the
expenses were quite heavy. When all
are in and paid, however, the net will
be the sum above named.
Just at this point we want to say
that Mr. Wetzler now bids fair to
achieve his long cherished ambition,
to have the biggest and best boys and
girls band in the State. But in ac-
complishing that result he has also
outgrown the capacity of the Odd Fel-
lows hall, in Milesburg, which the |
band has used to practice in. He is
now up against the proposition of
erecting a building big enough to hold
his band, and this is the object now

BELLEFONTE COUNCIL MEETS
GAMBLE MILL PROPERTY.
Bonafide Offer for Purchase of Same
Made to Referee in Bankruptcy.
Some ten days or two weeks ago
Lee Francis Lybarger, of Mifflinburg,
referee in bankruptcy in charge of
the affairs of Frank Mayer, confess-
ed bankrupt, and formerly of Belle-
fonte, sent out notices of a meeting
to be held at the offices of W. Harri-
son Walker, Bellefonte, at 10 o’clock
a. m., July 31st, when the offer of
Ulsh & Bashoar to take over the
property of Mr. Mayer at their offer
of $28,500 would be considered, and
if no objections were filed by credi-
tors the cale would be confirmed. The
property in question is what is best
known as the Gamble mill. It was
originally sold by the late George M.
Gamble to Ulsh & Bashoar, of Mil-
lersburg, who operated the plant less
than a year then sold it to Frank
Mayer. Mr. Mayer in due time be-
came financially involved and went
into bankruptcy, and the property is
naturally up for disposition for the
benefit of the creditors.
John Curtin is the trustee in bank-
ruptcy and a few weeks ago put the
property up at public sale. At that
time the best bid received was $27,-
600, and the trustee refused to let the
property go for that sum. Mrs. Gam-
ble holds a mortgage against the prop-
erty for $25,000 which with unpaid
interest, etc., now totals about $28,
500. Ulsh & Bashoar have a second
mortgage for $10,000.
When the latter made their offer
of $28,500 for the property it was
with no thought of saving their own
investment. They had a verbal offer
from John McCoy to take the land
and the water right for $22,500,
while C. Y. Wagner offered to pay $5,-
000 for the machinery in the mill and
$2,500 for the mill building.
For some years past members of
borough council have considered the
advisability of purchasing the prop-
erty, not so much for the intrinsic
value of the plant but because it will
give the town complete control of the
‘water rights through . the borough,
both the race and Spring creek. The
question of the purchase was discus-
sed from all angles at two special
meetings of council held last week,
‘with the result that borough solicitor
N. B. Spangler was empowered to go
. before Mr. Lybarger, on Tuesday, and
make a tentative offer of $38,500 for
the property. As the offer was very
i much better than the one from Ulsh
| & Bashoar, Mr. Lybarger continued
| final disposition of the matter until
‘next Tuesday. In the meantime Mr.
Spangler is engaged in solving the
question as to the borough’s legal
| Status in making the purchase.
Should the borough get the proper-
ty it is the purpose to utilize the pow-
| er there to generate electricity to op-
‘erate the pumps at the big spring,
Councilmen are of the opinion that
this can be done at a saving over the
present cost of pumping. As there
will be more power there than the
borough will be able to utilize to
pump the water another scheme is to
get the Bellefonte merchants to form
a co-operative association and use the
mill property as a cold storage plant.
The excess water power would be am-
ple to furnish constant refrigeration.
Mr. Lybarger will be in Bellefonte
again next Tuesday and by that time
berough officials hope to have in con-
crete form ways and means to back
up their offer of $38,500 for the prop-
Seventeen Dozen Trout was Joe Thal’s
Record for Season. |
~ Joe Thal, one of Bellefonte’s most
consistent trout fishermen, wound up
his season’s sport on Monday morn-
ing with a catch of seven nice trout,
which made an even seventeen dozen,
or 204 trout, he caught from April
15th to his last outing on Monday.
The smallest trout he caught during
the season measured nine inches and
the largest seventeen.
Joe is a bait fisherman, never using
the fly rod. His principal bait is the
minnow. He knows every good fish-
ing hole on Spring creek and Logan’s
branch, places where the big fellows
are the most likely to be found. His
reasons for preferring live bait to fly
are that the small trout will take the
fly and the big ones are wary about
doing so. On the other hand the lit-
tle fellows rarely go after a minnow
while the big ones just eat ’em alive.
That there is logic in Joe’s reasoning
is evidenced by his season’s catch.
——At a luncheon given by Mrs.
J. M. Curtin, of Pittsburgh, last week,
