pavement in front of the residence
of burgess Hard P. Harris, last
winter. = In his brief of particulars
Morrison asks $2000 for his pain
and suffering, $5000 as compensation
for his loss of wages and $1000 for |
medical attention. The summons |
was read by secretary W. T. Kelley
following the reading of a communi-
cation from borough solicitor N. B.
Spangler advising that the borough
entertain no offers of settlement of
the Morrison claim.
Every member of council was
present at the meeting and it was
a long and sweltering session. A
young man by the name of Trait,
from Milton, was before council and
asked assistance in obtaining a
dumping ground. He is planning to
‘establish a garbage route in Belle-
fonte if he can secure a dump. He
was advised to consult with the
made for the appointment of bor-
ough auditor to fill the vacancy
created by the recent death of Mer-
rill T. Eisenhauer, the applicants
being D, Wagner Geiss, M. W. Wil-
liams, John E. Dubbs and John W.
Smith. Only one ballot was taken,
Dubbs receiving six votes, Williams
one and Smith one. On motion of
Mr. Ardery Dubbs’ election was
made unanimous.

Horace Hartranft, H. C. Taylor,
W. R. Cliffe, A. C. Hewitt and W.
Hassell Montgomery were present
in connection with the proposed
sewer extension on east Linn street,
but as no survey has been made
further east than the Hartranft and
Taylor properties the men were “ad-
vised to geta new survey and pro-
file, and present to the Street com-
mitteee their offer of financial as-
sistance in constructing the sewer;
the matter being referred to the
committtee with power,
The Street committtee presented
the request of Fred Walker for a
sewer extension up west Lamb
street onto Halfmoon hill. Mr.
Walker claimed there would be
three taps but the sewer will be
some 1800 feet in length. Referred
to the committee for investigation.
The Water committee reported
of $1575.15. . The committee further
recommended that the water . tax
for the ensuing year be one hun-
dred per cent of the schedule in-
stead of 90 per cent, as it has been
for some years past. Both Mr.
Jodon and Mr. Emerick objected to
the increase unless a revision up-
ward is made on users outside of
the borough. As that schedule is
fixed by ordinance the only way to
change it is by another ordinance.
As no definite agreement could be
reached the committee’s recommen-

— On Saturday evening Miss
‘Amelia Carpeneto was at Hecla park
with a party of friends and decid-
ed to enjoy the sensation of the
swinging dome. She failed to ob-
serve that the dome had been push-
.ed slightly out of position and when
ghe stepped onto it it settled
into its concrete base catching two
fingers of her right hand between
the metal and concrete. The middle
finger and the third finger were
badly mangled but everything pos-
sible is being done at the Centre
County hospital to restore the use- |
fulness of the hand. Miss Carpeneto

tan Metal company and will, of ne-
cessity, be off duty several weeks. |

dation was held.over until the next
inch pipe for the water line from
the spring to the Gamble mill has
reached Bellefonte and some def-
inite action should be taken in re-
gard to putting down the pipe line |
and getting the pumping station in
operation. Up to this time council
has not decided just where nor how
the pipe line is to be laid, and Mr.
Cobb wanted an expression of
council in regard to the matter, As
everybody seemed reluctant to state
where, when or how the line should
ferred to the committee with power.
The Finance committee reported a
balance in the borough fund of
$93.70 and in the water fund,
$1630.90. Notes presented for re-
newal aggregated $23,100. Two
notes for $1000 each had been paid
off. A new borough note for $1000
and a water department note for
$2500 were authorized to meet cur-
rent bills.
Mr. Emerick stated that the Ly-
coming Trust company has asked
for the payment of the $20,000 mort-
gage on the Gamble mill next month,
and he advised that the $38,000

The Finance committee recom-
| mended that the tax millage for the
i year be 10 mills for borough pur-
poses, 10 for street and 2 for in-
terest purposes. The recommenda-
tion was approved by council.
The Fire and Police committee re-
ported that the tests of two fire
alarms did not prove them to be
any more satisfactory than the one
now in use and recommended that
they be returned to the manufactur-
ers. So ordered.
Mr. Jodon stated that he has a
property on Pine street that is bad-
ly in need of sewer connections but
has no way of reaching a sewer
without going over private property
and asked if there is any way in
which council can assist him. He
was advised to consult the borough
engineer on his next trip to Belle-
Borough bills totaling $1041.00
and water bills aggregating $5005.62
were approved for payment after
which council adjourned.
County treasurer Lyman L. Smith
papered one panel of the court
house corridor, yesterday morning,
but he didn't use a very attractive
kind of paper for the job. In fact
it was made up of legal notices, to
be exact delinquent tax sale notices
which must be posted ten days be-
fore the date of sale in accordance
with the law.
When the tax collectors made
their return to the county commis-
sioners in May 980 tracts of seated
lands, town homes, farms and in-
dustrial plants were returned on
which taxes ranging from $6.50 to
$2585.00 remained unpaid. About
eighty of the delinquents settled be-
fore the taxes were advertised. Since
the advertisement was inserted in
the newspapers from one-third to
one-half of the delinquents have
responded to the treasurer’s notice
for settlement, and it is notices of
the unpaid taxes that were posted
in the court house yesterday. The
delinquents have until the date
sale, August 4th, to settle, and
failure to do so will result in the
sale of their properties.
Two more prisoners made their
escape from Rockview penitentiary,
last Friday morning, but one of
them had only a brief spell of liber-
ty, as he was caught, on Saturady
evening, in a cornfield, near Union-
ville. The men had evidently planned
their escape beforehand, as one of
them was at work in the harvest
field and the other in a barn’* yet
they got together and left at the
same time. :
The men were Clinton McArthur,
of McKean county, serving one to
three years for larceny, and Walter
Barton, of Westmoreland county, do-
ing one to two years for stealing
an automobile, McArthur had been
at Rockview only eight days, hav-
ing been brought there on July 10th.
Barton is the man who was cap-
tured and taken before Judge Flem-
ing, on Tuesday, was sentenced
to an additional term of one to two
years. In addition he has still two
years of a former sentence to serve,
so that he is settled for.a time, at
Last Saturda evening Harry
Diehl was among a number of Miles-
burg men engaged in fishing in the
Bald Eagle creek, One of Harry's
nearest neighbors on the bank got
his line entangled in the tall grass
and he went to his assistance. When
he returned to his post his fishing
rod, line and all had disappeared.
As no one had been near the spot
at the time the only conclusion was
that the rod had either washed away
or been dragged away by a fish.
Several fishermen helped Harry and
for the rod but it could not be found.
On . Sunday morning John Scholl
found the missing rod lying along
the bank about one hundred feet
down stream and when he pulled it
in he found securely hooked a three
and a half foot eel and a fifteen
inch sucker. "It was probably the
eel and the sucker that pulled the
rod into the stream on Saturday
evening, and the only wonder is
that they didn't take it further
away. ;
Ward Green, colored, and Jack
Morrison are: under one thousand
dollars bail for stealing the car of
Edward Irvin from infront of the
Penn Belle hotel, at an early hour
on Sunday morning, and wrecking
the same down near the plant of
the American Lime and Stone com-
pany. On Staurday night they at-
tempted to get away with a car from
the Rossman garage, it is alleged,
but were detected before they got
under way. Then they stole the
Irvin car and down near the old
lime kilns ran into something and
wrecked it. .
Green was arrested on Sunday
and Morrison on Monday. Monday
evening they were given a hearing
before Squire Tressel who held them
in one thousand dollars bail for

That Nevin Guiser, seven year old
son of Mrs. Elmira Guiser, house-
keeper for Jacob Cramer on his
farm about three miles west of State
College, is alive today is undoubted-
ly due to the work of the first aid
team of the West Penn Power com-
pany and their treatment with the
' company’s inhalator.
A privately owned spur electric
line crosses the Cramer farm. It
has not been kept in the best condi-
tion and a 2200 volt wire had brok-
en loose from a bad cross-arm and
sagged to within four and a half
feet of the ground. On Saturday
morning the Guiser boy and his sis-
ter went into the orchard to pick
fallen apples. In some way the boy
came in contact with the 2200 volt
wire on which the insulation was
very bad. The shock he received
knocked him to the ground and this
broke his hold on the wire. Pecul- -
iar as it may seem, the boy was
not rendered immediately uncon-
scious and was able to get up and
walk a few steps, then lost con-
sciousness and sank to the ground.
Realizing what had happened the
boy’s sister ran to the house and
told her mother. Mrs. Guiser hur-
ried to the orchard and picking up
her boy carried him to the yard. A
physician was promptly summouned
who rendered what aid he could
and the West Penn office, at State
College, was then notified. Officials
there promptly notified the Belle-
fonte office and Leroy Scull and Le-
roy Bryan, two of the first aid
team, with the company’s inhalator,
made a quick trip to the Cramer
farm. They found the boy still un-
, conscious and blue in the face. Some
three or four treatments with the
inhalator were given before signs
| of returning life were noticeable,
,and it was an hour or longer be-
(fore consciousness returned, The
1boy is now all right and it was un-
.doubtedly the inhalator treatments
that saved his life. :
While picnicking at Whipple's dam,
on Sunday, Robert Bloom decided to
take a plunge in the mountain wa-
ter and got in beyond his depth.
i He might have drowned had it not
{been for the prompt assistance of
! Ed Martz, who brought him safely
to land. The previous day Miss
Sarah Wieland was seized with
{cramps while bathing in the same
'pool and sank in eight feet of wa-
ter. The screams of her girl friends
attracted a Boy Scout, in camp
| nearby, who plunged into the wa-
ter and brought the girl to shore.
| She had lost consciousness but was
| quickly revived andis now all right.
‘The Undine fire company, of
: Bellefonte, won a prize of fifty dol-
lars for the best appearing pumper |
‘at the annual convention of the Cen-
‘tral Pennsylvania Volunteer Fire-
men’s association,
| last week.
The State College company won
ia prize of $50 for a motor driven
"apparatus traveling the longest dis-
tance and also $25 for the best
; darktown brigade.
| The Undines were very much sur-
prised and, consequently, elated at
their success. Their determination
to go . to the convention was an
eleventh hour decision and had their
full complement of men gone along
held at Dubois
i the largest uniformed company in
line of parade.
No selection was made for a
place of meeting next year, as no
invitations were extended. All the
old officers were re-elected except
the president, and he will be chosen
later by the executive committee
when a place for the 1931 meeting
has been determined upon.
Though Bellefonte is a mountain
town it sweltered in the heat of the
past week, -although official regis-
tration at the U. S. weather bureau,
at the aviation field, did not show
it as intensively hot here as was
reported from many other places.
But it was hot enough for all pur-
poses, at that, And the ground
was parched because of lack- of
rain, but both the temperature and
the drought were broken, on Tues-
day, when a succession of rain
storms occurred.
The weather bureau's report of
the temperature for the five hottest
days is as follows:

Robert Bigelman who was mur-
dered in a garage at Carnegie, Pa.
early last Saturday morning, was a
nephew of Mr. and Mrs. John Mig-
not, of this place.
He was night man in the garage
and was found dead on the floor
when men for the day turn arrivea
at 6 o'clock that morning. The
whole affair is shrouded in mystery
as no clue could be found and no
motive was apparent. He was a

—Mrs. S. Calvin Witmer, of Buffalo
Run, was in town Tuesday morning
looking after some business affairs and
we were glad to learn that Mr. Witmer
is improving in . health. Ever since
early spring he has been incapacitated
to the extent that he has been unable
to do any of his farm work. The crops
were put out, however, and they are
harvested now and Mrs. Witmer told us
that they had nearly a normal hay crop.
That is unusual, because there are
very few farmers in Centre county whc
had more than half a crop of hay. All
of the Witmer farm work has been done
by day men and Mrs. Witmer seemed
to feel as if it had been well done.
