Less Than $20,000 Though Firemen
Responded to Many Calls.
The Watchman has always eom-
mended the work of Bellefonte’s vol-
unteer firemen, as they are always
quick to respond to every call for
their services, and the effective work
they do is shown in detail in the fol-
lowng annual report of fire marshall
John J. Bower, as submitted to bor-
ough council on Monday evening.
Bellefonte, Pa., Jan. 2, 1929
To the Officers and Members of the
Town Council of Bellefonte, Pa.
Gentlemen: —
Pursuant to the ordinance govern-
ing the Fire Department of the bor-
ough, I beg to herewith submit my
report for the year 1928.
During the year the Fire Depart-
ment responded to 59 alarms, of
which 27 were general alarms, 19
still alarms and 13 out of town calls.
In response to these alarms the De-
artment laid 12750 feet of 23% inch
ose, raised 270 feet of ladders, used
225 gallons of chemicals, traveled ap-
proximately 265 miles and were in
service 35 hours.
Of the 46 alarms within the bor-
ough, the value of the buildings in-
volved was $416,400.00, contents
$218,100.00, or a total of $634,500.00.
The insurance carried on the build-
ings was $290,900.00, and on contents
$164,500.00, or a total of $455,500.00.
Loss on buildings was $10,420 and on
contents $9,010.00, or a total loss for
the year of $19,480.00, being .0308
per cent. of the values involved. .995
per cent. of the fires were confined to
the point of origin, and those that
were not so confined were almost en-
tirely involved before the alarm was
turned in.
‘The causes of all fires in the bor-
ough were determined, as follows:
Burning flues, 21; short circuits in
electrical appliances, 6; cigarettes, 3;
spontaneous ignition, 2; undetermin-
ed, 2; false alarms, 2; sparks from
cupola, 1; overheated kiln, 1; incendi-
ary, 1; overheated stove, 2; defective
oil stove, 3. The false alarms were
not turned in maliciously but by par-
ties who had reasonable cause to be-
lieve that a fire existed.
During the year 1650 feet of hose
has been purchased so that the de-
partment now has on hand 4500 feet
of serviceable hose, which is near the
amount required by the underwriters.
A new combination chemical and hose
wagon has been purchased by the
Logan Fire company without any cost
to the borough. I find the equipment
of the department in good condition,
with the exeception of a 50 foot lad-
der, which I believe unsafe and
should be replaced with a modern
trussed ladder. The Undine steamer
should be placed in working condition
so that it could be used as a reserve
in an emergency. Until recently I

repairs had been made but find that

but that it could be placed in good |

The cost of repairs during the year
has been $334.42 and for gas and oil |

his home at Pine Grove Mills at nine
o'clock, Saturday evening, January
5th, of valvular heart trouble. His
illness covered a period of more than
two years. During that time his con-
dition was variable. Last summer
he enjoyed many short trips about
the country. In October he had a fall
and since then had been confined to
his room. About three weeks ago his
condition became serious and a grad-
ual decline began until he quietly and
peacefully passed away.
He was born in Lancaster county,
Pa., on April 7th, 1846. Shortly after
his parents, John and Amanda Wade
Miller, moved to Centre county and
settled at Shingletown. He was
scarcely fifteen years of age when
Fort Sumpter fell, but in response to
the president’s call for 300,000 volun-
teers, he was the first to enlist when
an effort was made to organize a com-
pany at Boalshurg under Captain Mec-
Farlane. He served as a member of
Company G, 148th regiment until the
surrender of Lee at Appomatox. He
was seriously wounded at Gettysburg,
returning to his regiment in Septem-
ber after being cared for at the Chest-
nut City hospital, in Philadelphia. He
saw service in most of the major
battles in which the Army of the Po-
tomac took part. He was one of the
detail of eight men from Company
G who made the successful assault
on Fort Crater in front of Petersburg
on October 27th, 1864. On the twen-
ty-ninth of May, 1865, the order was
read that made the survivors of Com-
pany G the same as other citizens,
save for the service they had render-
ed their country. Among his most
cherished memories were those that
related to the days of service he gave
in support of our flag.
On November 30th, 1871, he was
united in marriage to Mary Ann
Cooper who preceded him to rest in
June, 1917. His active life was spent
on his farm near Pine Grove Mills
where he has since resided:
Politically he was an active and
loyal Democrat. At various times he
served Ferguson township as road
supervisor, school director, and jus-
tice of the peace. In 1914 he was the
nominee of his party for the Legisla-
In early life he became a member
of the Presbyterian church and until
illness prevented he was regular in
church attendance. His life was one
of trust and devotion to his Master.
He was the last of a family of four
boys and three girls. He is survived
by two sons, Samuel C., of Chester,
and John G., at home; also two grand-
children, Russell C, of State College,
and Elizabeth, of Chester.
Funeral services were held at his
late home on Wednesday morning at
10 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Samuel
Martin, of State College, assisted by
Rev. J. Max Kirkpatrick. Burial
was made in the Pine Grove Mills
cemetery. =

As we reported last week Wesley's
Christmas was so full of unexpected
brightness that he was quite over-
whelmed. He has asked us to thank
those who sent such material evidence
of friendship. He said: “You know I
want to thank them, but I just can’t
say the words that would tell them
"all it means to me.” We know Wes-
ley’s handicaps and we know the drab-
ness of his life so well that we know
those who made this Christmas for
him could have done nothing for oth-
ers of their friends that was compar-
able in cheer giving results with what
they did for Wesley.
Below are the names of those whom
we believe will ever be emblazoned
in the heart of a poor soul who “didn’t
know I ever had so many friends.”

Huntingdon, Pa., December 22, 1928.
Mr. George Meek,
Democratic Watchman,
Bellefonte, Pa.
Hope you don’t wait until “Wes-
ley” has started down the long, long
trail, to give his message to the
world. I have not seen “Wesley” for
fifteen years, but even then, as you
say in your little item in “INK
SLINGS,” I thought him “an heroic
figure,” for the very same reasons
you had in mind when you wrote
those few lines for your paper. In
those days it gave me a lot of pleas-
jure to ease “Wesley’s” burdens once
in a while, and I am going to get a
big “kick” out of the thought that the
enclosed ‘iron man” may help to
make his Christmas a happy one.
I am sure Wesley will remember
me, and if you do happen to see him
just tell him that “Tiddley’ Blackford
wishes him his Merriest Christmas—a
day filled with all the joys anyone
ever knew and a New Year as happy
and prosperous as the most hopeful
could wish for.
Sincerely yours,

at present we have no accurate meth-

accurately ascertained by the use of a
nozzle gauge. Such gauge, I believe,
would be a valuable addition to the

test both pumper and hydrants as to
their delivery capacity, and such
gauge could be secured at a cost of
approximately $25.00 or less.
