Walter Dunklebarger sold his milk
station, located on north Water
street, last week, to recorder Lloyd
A. Stover and his son-in-law, Grover
Spearly. The latter has been ope-
rating a milk route in Bellefonte and
Spring township for several years
past, with headquarters at Coleville,
and the purchase of the station on
north Water street will mean a
much more advantageous location
than he has had in the past.
The Dunklebarger plant contains
a complete pasteurizing outfit and
all the necessary cooling machinery
to put and keep milk in the best
possible condition. The plant, how-
ever, needs a complete overhauling
and the new owners started in on
this job early Monday morning. The
spring of pure, cold water, located
right at the plant, will be cleaned
out and beautified, the water to be
used for cooling purposes. Messrs.
Stover and Spearly figure that it
will take at least ten days to put
the plant in the kind of shape de-
sired and then they expect to have
a public opening.
——The gentle little. rain that
fell for two hours yesterday morn-
ing was ‘the first we have had since

planning to hold one of their quarter-
‘ly dollar days on Wednesday, Aug-

| perusal of their advertisement ap-
pearing on page 5 of this issue,
| Booster merchants are planning to
offer exceptionally good values for
"the event,
Our readers know from the Boos-
ter Stores’ advertisements that ap-
‘pear from week to week that Wed-
nesday is always observed in Al-
toona Booster Stores as suburban
day. Next Wednesday,
suburban day will be combined with
the Booster Stores quarterly dollar
day making a double trade event |
that will prove of great interest to
all homes as it will afford many,
opportunities for buying useful and
seasonable merchandise at less than
regular prices.
Altoona Booster Stores always
urge people to first patronize their
their home merchants. Even in a
sale of this character they only
want people to buy from them the
things that their home merchants
cannot supply to equal advantage.
As a special feature of the dollar
day Altoona, city officials are
cooperating with the Booster mer-
chants by lifting all parking re-
strictions so that visitors can park
their cars in the business ditrict for
as long a period as is necessary to
enable them to do their shopping.
All people throughout Central
Pennsylvania are invited to visit Al
toona and share in the good values
that Booster Stores will offer for
, this summer trade event.

‘automobile accident, about six o'clock
last Friday evening, that he died
‘while being taken to the Jersey

spine fractured. He also sustained
la fracture of the skull, both legs
broken and a punctured lung.

30th, 1855, hence was in his 76th
{year. He graduated at Dickinson
{Seminary in 1876, and at once en-
tered the woolen mills then being

‘largely through his progressive
ymethods that the town of Woolrich
has been made one of the most
‘beautiful in Pennsylvania.

ests Mr. Rich was active in the
Methodist Episcopal church. He had
served as president of the board of
‘trustees of Dickinson Seminary, was
