fonte the train service is in direct
charge of trainmaster Joseph Kel-
leher, During the pest year the
freight and passenger service at
the Bellefonte stauon yielded the
railroad company a revenue of well
onto four million dollars and with
that amount of business it would
seem as if an operating tower here
would be one of the things the com-
pany could not afford to dispense

where he wants to go and while he
has not yet made public his con-
clusion it will likely be at a tower

-———Members of the borough coun-
“cil are becoming agitated over the
welfare of the big trout in Spring
creek, and rightly so. Years ago
Bellefonte was known as the “Home
of Governors,” but in these days of
fast travel by automobile more
people know it as the town where
one can
watch hundreds of big trout disport
in the sparkling waters of Spring
creek. So we say, by al’ means take
care of the fish. Feed them if need be,
and if boys take pot shots at them
with air guns, see chat the illegal
practice is stopped. But all the
marks on the trout are not from
lack of food or shows from air guns.
Most of the scars come from the
bucks fighting over a fair lady trout
during the spawning season. We
have watched their combat many a |
time; have seen a big buck grab
another and shake him like a bull
dog, slashing off ribbons of flesh
from his sides and back. But the
spawning season is about over and
in due course of time the scars of

While it has been impossible to
get absolutely definite information
on the matter the rumors are such
as to justify the assumption that
a store of the Spencer Chain will

As to just where it will be open-

fact that James Heverly is going to
move his automobile accessory and
sporting goods store out of his
corner room and into the one next
to it, now occupied by the Ladies

Notwithstanding the fact that the
Bellefonte fire department responded
‘to 43 alarms during 1930 the fire
loss for the year in Bellefonte bor-

the annual report of John J. Bower,
chief fire marshall, submitted to bor-
ough council on Monday evening,
This compares very favorably with
1929 when the loss was only $3150,
and is a practical exemplification of
the efficiency of the personnel of the
department as well as it's equip-
‘ment, Mr. Bower's report in full is
‘as follows:
Bellefonte, Pa. January 5, 1931.
To the President and Members of
the Town Council of Bellefonte.
Gentlemen: —
In accordance with the ordinance
governing the Fire Department of

following report for the year ending
December 31, 1930.

alarms and twenty out of town
calls. In so doing they traveled 165
miles, laid 8450 feet of 2% inch
hose, used 703 gallons of chemicals,
raised 276 feet of ladders and were
in service 28 hours.
The total value of the buildings
involved was $332,150.00; contents,
$254,925.00; Insurance on buildings,
$195,650.00; insurance on contents,
$132,900.00. Loss on buildings, $1540.-
00; contents, $2715, or a total loss
in theh Borough of $4255.00, or a
per capita loss of .88% cents. This
is slightly in excess of last year but
the percentage of loss on the build-
ings and contents involved is only
The cause of the various

defective flues, 3; short circuit in
autos, 3; short circuit in motor, 1;

rette or pipe, 1; oil heater, 2; boil-
ing tar, 1; burning dump, 1; gasoline
explosion, 1; hot ashes, 1; gas re-
frigerator, 1; called out by the sheriff
to assist in search for missing man,
1; sparks from incinerator, 1; grass

The cost of repairs and supplies
for the year was $114.13; care of
apparatus and washing hose, $158.
75; gas and oil, $137.39. The Bor-
ough received for out of town calls
the net sum of $116.66,
The Department has in service
4350 feet of 2% inch hose in good
condition and 750 feet of % inch
chemical hose, 150 feet of 2%; inch
has been taken out of service in the
past year, all of it from the hose
purchased in April, 1921, The
pumpers and minor equipment are
in good condition.
During the year Council has pass-
ed a Building Code and improved
the water system and I would urge
that the minor improvements, as
suggested by the Underwriters, be
made promptly, so that we may suc-
| cessfully ask for a re-rating of in-
surance rates.
On behalf of the Department and
personally I wish to thank Council
for its cooperation and aid.
Respectfully submitted,
Chief Fire Marshal.
