CENTRAL PENNA. GAS CO.
COMPLETES PIPE LINES.
Work On Plant Being Rushed and
House Connections Made.
When the Collins Bros. built the
old Bellefonte furnace about forty
years ago, a $180,000 undertaking,
they were hearled far and wide for
giving a new industry to Bellefonte.
Today the Central Pennsylvania Gas
company is fast completing a public
utility plant to serve Bellefonte and
State College, as well as intermediate
points, at an expense of close to half
a million dollars and so quietly and
energetically have they gone about
the work that very few people know
what has been accomplished.
Only a little over four months ago,
or to be exact on June 11th, the first
shovel of ground was turned for the
big plant near Axe Mann. Since that
time the plant has gradually and
steadily progressed to that stage of
completion that Frank B. Murphy,
construction engineer in charge, feels
certain that they will be manufactur-
ing gas by the 15th of November.
This does not mean that the entire
plant will be completed by that time,
but enough of it that the manufacture
of gas can be started.
The company, on Friday, completed
the laying of all its high pressure
lines both in Bellefonte and State
College, with the exception of a few
short extensions, and a large num-
ber of the men who have been given
steady employment the past four
months, were laid off. Quite a num-
ber of men are still at work making
house connections, and will be kept
busy for another month or longer.
All told the company has put un-
der ground approximately thirty
miles of high pressure pipe lines,
equal to about thirty car loads. This
includes the fourteen miles of six-
inch line from the plant to State Col-
lege, and from the plant into Belle-
fonte, with" a mile extension of a
three inch line to Pleasant Gap. In
both Bellefonte and State College ov-
er seven miles of service lines have
have been laid, running from six inch
down to 13 inches. To be exact 35,
890 feet have been laid in Bellefonte
and 35,388 feet in State College,
which does not include the few small
extensions or house connections vet
to be made.
All told the company has on its
books 1100 signed contracts tor pros-
pective users. Of this number 600
house connections have already been
made and 100 of the prospective users
have the equipment in their houses
and connections made ready for the
As to the plant itself, it will be the
most modern of any in the country.
and have a capacity far beyond the
demand of the present indicated con-
sumers. Every machine in connec:
tion with the plant is the very lat-
est and most modern that is known in
the history of gas making. And ev-
ery part of the big plant is being in-
stalled in duplicate so that there will
be no danger of a breakdown or lack
of a supply of gas from any cause.
The large building at the plant
holds the two big boilers which will
be used for generating the steam nee-
essary in the manufacture of water
gas. Also the generators, carburet-
ter, super-heater, scrubber and con-
densor. The relief holder is located
outside the main building as is the
purifier, a large, solidly welded boil-
er iron tank where the gas is purged
of all impurities by being forced
through trays of oxide of iron.
From the purifier it goes direct to
the big storage tank, which will be
some eighty feet in diameter by
eighty feet in height, built in tele-
scoping sections with water seals.
This tank wil] probably not be finish-
ed by November 15th, but if the other
parts of the plant are in shape to
make gas by that time it will be fore-
ed direct into the pipes by the use of
two large compression pumps. From
the storage tank, when it is complet-
ed, the gas will flow through a high
pressure compressor which will give
it uniform pressure to every user on
the entire system.
During the four months since the
company began operations it has giv-
en work to scores of men in Belle-
fonte and State College who would
otherwise have keen idle most of the
time, and thousands of dollars have
in that way been spent right in this
section. And even now, when the big
bulk of the plant has been construct-
ed, the company has on file over five
hundred applications from men who
New Coal and Fire Clay Deposit
Found in Rush Township.
During the past week prospectors
have been at work on a 300 acre tract
of land owned by Sim Batcheler,
south of Glass City, Rush township,
to find out what lies beneath the soil.
At a reasonably shallow depth the
prospectors struck a vein of coal 5
feet 3 inches in thickness. Under-
neath that is a 18 foot layer of soft
clay, of exceptionally fine quality and
a grade much in demand. Then there
is another four foot strata of coal,
known as the Mercer vein and under-
neath that a 43 layer of hard clay.
All of the deposits can be developed
by stripping operations.
——Though the "High school foot-
ball team were beaten, on Saturday,
they had a record crowd of almost
nine hundred people at the game—
about one-third of whom were from
Mount Carmel. The gate receipts
were $575 and after all expenses were
paid the High school athletic associa-
tion had $301 to the good.

Small Game Found Scarce On the
Opening Day of Season.
Hunters who went out, last Thurs-
day, to try their luck on the firstle-
gal hunting day of the season for small
game, did not find it very plentiful.
Bven. Dr. J. J. Kilpatrick, veteran
hunter as he is, failed to find the tur-
key he went after. The same kind of
luck attended the efforts of J. O. Hev-
erly, who went out especially for tur-
key. The latter averred that not one
of seventeen hunters who were after
turkey saw even a feather. Only one
hunter, so far as known, brought a
turkey to Bellefonte and that was
William Kline. Out at Pleasant ‘Gap
two turkeys were killed, but the birds
kept pretty well in hiding.
William Ward, of Bellefonte, got
a fine specimen of male ringneck
pheasant on the opening day, and
Rev. Homer C. Knox shot two ordi-
nary pheasants on the mountain near
Notwithstanding the fact that squir-
rels have been reported scarce by

string of six unusually large grays.
He promptly turned them over to
George Miller to send to a taxider-
mist to have a neckpiece made for his

Bellefonte Business Men to Buy Bull
and Give it Away.
The Bellefonte Business Men's as-
sociation will co-operate with the bet-
ter sires train to the extent of pur-
chasing a bull which will be chanced
off to dairyman. There will be no
gambling scheme connected with the
proposition. Tickets will be passed
out free to every dairyman visiting
the train. If accompanied by his wife
she will, also, be given a ticket, mak-
ing two to a family. These tickets
will be placed in a box and drawn out
by a disinterested party. The one
who has the winning ticket will be
permitted his choice of a bull, that
is, a Holstein, Guernsey or Jersey.
This will be an opportunity for some-
one to get a blooded bull for nothing.
Already many dairymen are planning
to try their luck.
Friday, November 2nd, should be
a red letter day for Centre county
dairymen, as that is the day the New
York Central better sires train will
visit Bellefonte. It will come here
over the Pennsylvania railroad from
Mill Hall and will stand on the track
near the railroad station from 2 to
5:30 p. m.
Word has just been received by
county agent R. C. Blaney from E.
G. Reed, agricultural representative
of the train, that anyone wishing to
purchase a purebred bull can do So.
This is contrary to information first
received which stated that in order
to purchase a bull off of the train a
grade bull must be exchanged.
Bulls will be distributed both by
direct purchase and by sale of the
scrub to the train, the money receiv-
ed to be used in the purchase of a
purebred. Cash will be paid at top
Buffalo prices f. 0. b. Bellefonte for
all grade bulls and aged bulls deliver-
ed to the train in exchange for pure-
bred bulls. "All bulls on the train will
have the registration papers with
them and will be from accredited
herds and sold subject to a 60 day re-
test. All production records will be
posted with each bull and all bulls will
have 400 1b. butter fat records or bet-
ter on their dams. Five blue ribbon
show bulls and several other prize
winners in recent shows have already
been consigned to the train. Bulls
consigned to the train will range in
age from 8 to 15 months, and in price
from $100 to $300.
In addition to the sale and ex-
change of bulls and educational ex-
hibits, talks will be given by some of
the leading dairy leaders of the east-
ern United States. Radio speakers
| will be erected on the train in order
that everybody will be able to hear
; Centre County W. C. T. U. Awarded
Honors at State Convention.
The Woman’s Christian Temper-
ance Union of Centre county was
awarded an honor unique in the his-
tory of the organization in the State
at the annual State convention held
in Scranton last week. The county
organization received a prize for the
county standard of excellence and
twelve locals attained the local stand-
ard and two locals doubled in mem-
bership, thus qualifying for a prize.
It was said by State officers that
no county ever before had approach-
ed such a record, as the county be-
gan the year with fifteen locals,
twelve of which completed the re-
quirements, and two others missing
only by a slight margin. The near-
est competitor was Chester county,
which placed twelve Unions for local
standard out of a total of thirty.
Centre county has increased it's
membership fifty per cent. during the
past two years, and the number.of
‘locals has gone from twelve in 1926
‘to seventeen at present. The Belle-
fonte Union received seven dollars in
cash prizes. Mrs. W. A. Broyles and
Mrs. M. H. Bell represented the coun-
ty as delegates to the convention.
Coach Ray Singley’s Bearcats from
the Mount Carmel High school liter-
ally clawed to pieces the Bellefonte
High school football team, on Hughes
field, last Saturday, winning the game
by the score of 43 to 19. But even
though they went down in defeat it
was no dishonor to coach Bob Cress-
well’s boys. Outweighed at least fif-
teen pounds tec the man, younger in
iantly to the final second of play and
put up a nervy fight. The only erit-
icisms that might be made on the lo-
a little slow in starting a play and
they invariably tackled too high.
Otherwise their plays were good but
futile against a team of much riper
experience. Thal, Confer, Rhoads,
Martin and Taylor were the particu-
lar stars for Bellefonte.
But the High school was not the
only Centre county team to meet de-
feat, on Saturday, as Penn State lost
to the U. of P. at Philadelphia, by
the score of 14 to 0. The only win-
ning team was the Bellefonte Acad-
emy, which defeated the Bucknell
Freshmen 6 to 0.

——Along towards nine o’clock, on
Monday evening, Mickey Boyer, cross-
ing from the First National bank to
the Brockerhoff house, walked right
in front of a Ford coupe being driv-
en up High street by a young man.
He was knocked down but the driver
of the car stopped with the front
wheel on one of Boyer’s legs.
Councilman J. M. Cunningham and
several other men rushed to his
aid and when they took hold of
him they found his clothing wet and
at first thought it blood and that he
had been fatally hurt. But a whif
of the “wetness” showed that it was

own personal use. In court, on Mon-
day, the woman claimed to be the wife
of Joseph Beezer, of Bellefonte, a
former guard at Rockview penitenti-

was a copy of their marriage certi-
ficate, but the paper was not signed
by a minister.
——Robert Hartle, of Spring creek,
was hit and knocked down in front of
J. O. Heverly’s store on Saturday
evening, by a car driven by a son of
W. C. Taylor. The young man was
pulling up in front of the store just as
Mr. Hartle stepped from the pave-
