About two weeks ago the town of
| Westover, Clearfield county, situated
nine miles north of Patton, was made
a borough and the following new offi-
cers were elected: Burgess, Dr. M.
Park; councilmen, Jas. Huston, presi-
dent, Harry Wilson, John Gabriel,
Blake Rainey, Ellis Westover, Jr., and
Frank Connelley; school directors, Dr.
M. Park, Isaac Straw, Alex McCardell,
Tke Markle and Robert Dunbar; con-
‘stable, Bide McKee; high constable,
W. 8. McCullough; Justice of the
Peace, J. P. Frye; treasurer, Jas. |

lector, Geo. Lallerment; assessor,
Harry Moore; auditors, Blair Somer-
ville, Norman Caldwell and Ellis
Westover Sr.; judge of election,
Reuben Venetta; inspector, Robert.
Mitchell. The above named officers
are all good men who will look after
the interest of the newly incorporated
town with dignity and honor.
A Fine Residence.
Jesse E. Dale's new residence on
Magee avenue is rapidly nearing com-
pletion and will be ready for oceu- |
pancy in a few weeks. The erection of
the building is under the supervision
basement. It will contain about seven
rooms and will be completed through-
out with all modern conveniences.
When finished this will add another
beautiful resindence in the borough of
which Patton can boast.
Right You Aru.
South Fork Record: ‘‘We were at
Patton on Sunday last and must say
that the new town is growing rapidly. |
The inhabitants are of a hustling dis- |
position and have made up their minds
to make it the leading town of north-
ern Cambria county. Patton has no
advantage over our town. We have
‘the same advantages. The difference:
They are awake. We asleep. Are we
never to wake up?’

On the 26th day of September a
notice first appeared in this paper that
‘an application would be made to the
Governor of Pennsylvania on Friday,
- October 25th, A. D. 1895; by F. E. Me-
Elfresh, A. E. Patton, Jas. Kerr, (eo.
8. Good, W. IL Sandford and E. C.
Brown for a charter of an intended
corporation to be known as the “Pat-
ton Clay Manufacturing Compaay,”
the object of which would be to man-
ufacture and cleal in ali the products of
fire clay such as vitrified tile or sewer
pipe, fire prcofing for building pur-
underground electric wires, otc. "The
application followed a meeting held in
the Chest Creek Land and Improve-
ment company’s office on August 22d,
at which were present Gen. Geo. J.
Magee, president Fall Brook Railroad

and E. C. Brown, superintendent of

The preliniinary arrangements were
made and an executive commmittee
consisting of E. C. Brown, W. H. Sanc-
ford, and F. F. McElfresh were author
‘ized to have the necessary plans pre-
. pared, solicit bide, award the contracts
‘and begin the erection of the plant for
‘the Patton Clay Manufacturing Co.
This committee in accordance with the
instructions of the stockholders im-
mediately took the matter in hand and
already the foundations for the new in-
dustry are well under way and a sewur

The muin building, for ‘which the |
contract has been awarded to the |
above named parties, Hubbard und |
Wise, will be 60x194 feet, three stories,
with four floors of vellow pine, slate |
roof, hemlock siding, and one coat of |
‘Adamant plaster. This building will |
be used for the manufacture and dry-|
ing of all the clay products prepara |
tory to burning the same. It will be;
heated by steam and contain all the |
. latest improvements in sewer pipe and
fire proofing and other material used |
in the manufacturing of clay goods.
The manager of the new operation,
F. E. McElfresh, has invented some
- valuable devices as the result of a life
time spent in the manufacture of clay
products and they will be used in this |
plant exclusively.
The ergine house and boiler house |
will be in separate buil dings and. for |
safety the boiler house is disconnec ted |

Contracts for machinery, including
all shafting. pullies, belting, etc., have
been awarded to J. W. Penfield & Son,
of Willoughby, O., who were Pr
sented by 8. I. Irwin. They farnmsb
all the sewer pipe presses, brick ma.
chines, pag mill, dry pans, wet pans
elevators, three eighty horse-power
boilers, a 150 horse-power engine, feed
‘water heater, pump, ete. The com-
pany will begin operations with eight
kilns. It will manufacture its own
brick as a brick machine is to be put in
Loperation at once.
The location of the plant ia in the
north-west corner of Patton borough, |
in the Flannigan run valley, where the
Chest Creek Land mui Improvement
company has donated ten acres of
surface with valuable concessions as to
‘clay and coal. Itis an ideal location
for such an industry. The coal and clay
being within a few feet of the works
reduces the expenses for raw material
to a minimum. A railroad siding will
be built from the Flannigan run branch
and an abundant sopply of water is
available. A number of practical
clay manufaturers have inspected the
location and some have said they con-
sidered it the finest location they have
ever seen. - The clay is about six feet
thick and overlaid with about three
feet of coal.
This industry in this location has the |
advantage of two lines of railroad to

New Schoo! House,
S. J Luther, of White township, was
a caller at the CouRriEr office on Tues-
day. He informs the writer that he
has just completed a new school house
for that township. The dimensions of
the building are 28x32 feet, with a
seating capacity of about forty-five
pupils. It is the finest school house in
| hat township.
Will One be Built Here?
Frugality will soon have a new rail-
road station, a building costing $2,000
or more, A correspondent says that
the work is now being pushed right
along by a strong force of men, and
that the side track will be changed and
general outside improvements made,
none of which comes before needed.

ship over and it begins business with a
market already for its products, as Mr.
McElfresh is now shipping about 600
cars yearly from his West Virginia
Shan, This business will all be brought
to the Patton plant and as he considers
the clay and the location and natural
advantages so much above what they
are in West Virginia, he anticipates a
much larger trade here. He will aban-
don that operation entirely as far as he
is concerned and will move his family
to Patton and become a resident.
’ "Work Has Commenced.
The ground has been broken for the
new industry and within thirty days
the foundations are to be completed |
according to contrict and sixty days
from the completion of the foundations
the contractors agree under heavy
penalty to complete the superstructure
or main building proper. Work on
the mine will soon be begun, the
engine and boilers located and put in
place, the kilns erected and within a
few months the plant will be in full
_operation and furnishing employment.
to nearly a hundred men.
The advantages to Patton by such a
plant located within its borough
limits are very great; merchants and
business men will derive a direct bene- |
fit thereof. It will furnish employment
to a large number of men and will be
