WOOD COUNTY REPORTER. h CHARMING SOCIAL SUCCESS Elks Club Members Sustain Their Ex cellent Reputation as Entertainers. The announcement some time since that the Elks Club was going to put on an up-to-date Cabarett Entertain ment with artist performers from Chi cago, was enough to create a rush for tickets to the event. They sold to the limit of capacity. The interior of the Club House had been beautifully de corated previously. For this occasion booths were provided for all around the hall, each with capacity for 8 peo nle. Several had also been provided for in the balcony. The booths were made by using the arches carried by the ledge in the parade during the Home-Corning and a large white bell was suspended from the center of each arch. The color scheme was purple and white, those colors being inter twined on the arches and standards and festooned about the walls. There were 22 booths and all were well filled accomodating more than 200 merrimakers. This entertainment was advertised for Friday night, September 12th, but the lady performers missed their train and the event was postponed until Saturday night, the 13th. The Elks Club rooms w n re attractive with its atcral and artistic decorations, spe cially arranged for this occasion by Fred Roenius, who had them in charge. He received many compliments on ac count of the excellent taste shown. were very attractive and beau tiful. Four beautiful ladies from Chicago, artists of accomplishments in Cabar et entertainments, were engaged for tie evening. Three were splendid sing ers and the fourth accompanied them on the piano. They were stylishly gowned for the occasion and render ed a program that was up-to-date and pleasing. They gave excellent satis faction to the large audience present. Dance numbers interspersed the sing ing and nothing dragged. The music was furnished by the Elks Orchestra and was a favorable attraction to the program of music. Light refreshments were served during the evening consisting of sandwiches, ice cream, cake and coffee. State President Dodd of Fond du Lac was a guest on this occasion and went home highly pleased with his social visit in Grand Rapids. THE HOG I just received an article from the University which says, “Without hogs Chicago would be a prairie village, Kansas City, a barren hill, and Omaha a ferry crossing. Take away the brood sow and our wheels of commerce would cease to turn.” The above is undoubtedly true of Chicago, Kansas City, and Omaha, but haw about Wood County? That is the question of most vital interest to us. The old brood sow turns the wheels of commerce. Is that true in Wood County? Is the old sow doing her duty by us or is the trouble due to the fact that we are not giving her a proper chance ? In traveling thru the county, I found a few men raising Poland Chinas, a few Yorkshires, a few Duroc Jerseys, a few Berkshires, a few Chester Whites, and once in a while a Hamp shire, etc. That is not the ideal con dition. Of course we know that con ditions are not such in Wood County Entered June 12, 1903, at Grand Rapids, Wisconsin, as second-class matter, under Act of Congress of Mar. 3, 1879 GRAND RAPIDS, WOOD COUNTY.

YOUTHFUL SPANISH PRINCES AND QUEEN FROM LATEST PHOTO Queen Victoria of Spain and her sons, the Infant Don Jaime at left and Prince Asturias at right are here shown embarking on the royal yacht to take part in the great regatta. The King of Spain is an ardent waterman and so are his sons. The Prince Asturias it will be noted bears a very marked resemblance to his father. as to make it a hog center such as is found in Indiana, Illinois, and several other states. However, every dairy farmer who has skim milk and whey as a by-product can profitably raise a few hogs. They might just as well be pure bred hogs. Over in West Sa lem, La Crosse county, last spring Mc- Donald held a hog sale that ran into thousands of dollars, single animals selling up to $l5OO. We have our sale barn at Marshfield, used two to four times a year. We might just as well have an annual or semi-annual brood sow sale and make more use of our barn. Comparatively few people in the county are at the present time raising and selling pure bread cattle. It takes but a very short time to get into the hog business. Think over these suggestions. A meeting will be held some time in the near future to organize a hog breeders' association. An effort will be made to choose one breed of hogs for Wood County. When the meeting is held be on hand with suggestions on the proposition. W. W. Clark, County Agent. JUSTICE COURT NEWS ITEMS William Winttgn of Arpin, paid a fine and costs in W. H.

VESPER HBME COMING The people of Vesper and vicinity gathered together in the town hall on Tuesday evening to show the soldier boys due honor for the valiant service they had rendered their country over seas the past year A delightful pro gram was carried out.

Sylvester, manager of the Wood County Wholesale Grocery Cos., has re signed his position as manager of the local company to serve the Creasey Corporation in a larger field. He will move his family to Madison, where he will reside and make his future head quarters. He will act as wholesale buyer in the state of Wisconsin for the co-operative wholesale Creasey Corporation of which there are several. He will buy cheese, butter, potatoes, cranberries, etc., in carload lots and see that they are shipped where most needed. Mr. Sylvester has made many friends in Grand Rapids where he and his estimable family have resided the past year. Under his management the Wood County Wholesale Grocery Cos., has made a wonderful gro-wth, way beyond expectation. The present quarters are inadequate to properly handle the constant increase in their trade. In leaving Grand Rapids, both Mr, and Mrs. Sylvester and family will take with them the best wishes of their newly made friends in Grand Rapids and vicinity. We wish them success wherever they may go. Charles Kruger, formerly with the Johnson & Hill Cos., has been engag ed to fill the place made vacant by Mr. Sylvester’s resignation, and that be ing true, insures the Company a thoro ly competent man to succeed him. Mr. Kruger’s wide and extended experience in the grocery business especially fits him for this position. He is already familiarizing himself with the duties of the office so that when Mr. Sylves ter leaves there will be no interruption. The magnitude of this business is growing and developing with such leaps and bounds that the present quarters must be enlarged at once to give beter care to the volume of trade. A. F. Billmyer, the architect and build er, has the contract for the enlarge ment of the present quarters. The people of Grand Rapids and Wood county are proud of this indus try and extend congratulations to the old and new management in their suc cessful handling of the same. STANDARD OIL AGENT Will Chambers has been engaged to serve the public at the new west side station opposite the Dixon Hotel on Grand Avenue by the Standard Oil Cos. It is generally agreed that the Com pany made a wise selection because Will is thoroughly competent to fill the place and well known, agreeable and popular. Their business is in good hands and everybody knows that the general traveling public will be well and promptly served. He took charge of the station on Thursday, September 11th. There are a few things yet un finished but they will be ready soon. This new station is a very creditable one, both for the city and Company. MEMORY OF MOTHER How many of our readers think as often as they should of their mother, their dear, old-fashicned mother? Oth er faces may fade away and be for gotten, but her’s will shine on for ever. When in the fitful pauses of life our feet wander back to the old homestead, and crossing the well worn threshold, stand once more in the room so hallovred by her presence, how the feelings of childish innocence and independence overcome us, and we kneel down in the molten sun shine streaming thru‘the window just where years ago we knelt by our mothers' knee lisping, “Our Father.” How many times when the tempter hurried us on, has the memory of those sacred hours, that mother’s words, her faith and prayers saved us from plunging into the deep abyss of sin. Years have filled great drifts between her and us, but they have not hidden from our sight the mem ory of her pure unselfish love. Dear old-fashioned mother.
