Fireworks at State Fair.
The night visitors to the state
fair will be well repaid for a vi
sit to the grounds after the daily
programmes. Some little idea
of the extent and grandeur of
the fireworks exhibition, con
ducted by the Pain Fireworks
Company may be gathered from
the following reference td this
part of the program to be given
nightly: A royal salute of aerial
maroons; a grand and complete
illumination of the park and
grounds, with constantly chang
ing colors; flight of mammoth
meteoric balloons, which arise
with dazzling brilliancy, chang
ing as they rise, to a spiral for
mation, leaving in their wake
beautiful coruscations, which
slowly fall to the earth; four
batteries of jeweled mines; a
marvelous polychromatic pro
duction, rendered by the dis
charge of thirty large rockets si
multaneously, containing Pain’s
latest tints and electric effects,
enveloping the sky in all the
colors of the spectrum in a mad
tumble of picturesque confusion;
a display of 10-inch Pain floral
bombshells, discharging the
tints of the primrose, violet, pan
sies, passion flower, heliotrope,
laburnum blossoms; the dis
charge of four national bombs of
large size, in red, white and blue;
display of numerous great rock
ets; presentation of the beauti
ful “Southern Cross, ’ an artistic
aerial novelty with a confusion
of intermittent changing colors,
and many other wonderful spe
cialties. State Fair w T eek Sept.

Monday Afternoon Storm Wrecks
Considerable Property

The rain and wind storm that

damage, that of some of the
farmers in the vicinity was bad

••• • A
Faust Again.
No play ever in our city has
met with such universal approv
al as this grand masterpiece
Goethe, the German Shakes

weire Satanic Mephisto so in
delibly stamped upon the minds
of an audience who witnesses
the part taken by Frederick J.
Wilson, and his visit to the city
with the Porter J. White Cos.,
double its former size, of unsur
passing magnificence, with the
grandest electrical and mechani
cal effects ever shown with a
“Faust” production in any city.
This the local management per
sonally tee* . This is
only Faust company that abso
lutely carries a full choir for the
cathedral scene, the same being
specially engaged from the
Church of the Transfiguration,
St. Louis, Mo. The Detroit Free
Press of recent date says that
the beautiful rendition of the
Drinking Chorus in the grand
opera, “Faust,” by this magnifi
cent quartette, was the most im

of that nature in Detroit. Will
appear here on Sept. 4th. at the
Opera House.

Wisconsin State Civil Service
The State Civil Service Commis
sion issues notiee of a general com
petitive examination to be held on
September 22nd, 1906 for the follow-*
mg positions:
Stenographers and typewriters;
engineers of stationary steam boil
ers; firemen of steam boilers; prison
and reformatory keepers and guards;
teacher guards at the Green Bay
Reformatory; supervisors of dairy
tests; oil inspector at Prairie du
Chien; machinists at the University;
attendants at the hospitals for the
insane and feeble minded; assistant
auditor at the University, actuary
in the Insurance Department.
The secretary of the Commission
states that eligible lists prepared
early in the year for the positions of
engineers, firemen, prison guards
and attendants have become nearly
exhausted. An insufficient number
applied for the position of machinist;
there are at present only two names
on the eligible list.
There have been frequent calls for
good stenographers and typewrit
ers, and the present list will be ex
hausted within the next few months.
Che last legislature enacted a law
providing that legislative stenogra
phers, and clerks with typewriting
ability shall be chosen by the Ciyil
Service Commission. Only men are
eligible for these positions. Legis
lative stenographers will receive $5
a day. Clerks having typewriter
ability, not stenographers, will re
ceive $4.00 a day during the session
of the legislature. Some twenty
five positions in the legislature
must be filled as a result of this
forthcoming examination. The sec
retary of the Commission states
that the demand for good stenogra
phers seems to exceed the supply.
The Commission has found diffi
culty in procuring a sufficient num
ber of satisfactory applicants for
positions as laundresses, seamstres
ses and cooks in the various state
institutions'.
Persons interested in any of the
aboye named positions should im
mediately address the secretary of
the State Civil Service Commission
at Madison, Wisconsin, stating posh

As Silver Joe Pats It.
HOW TO YOTE AT THE PRIMARY
' ELECTION.
Some people seem to have a wrong
idea about the primary election. I
have been asked whether a man can
vote a mixed ticket at the primaries.
Certainly not. You must vote
either one ticket or the other. If
you are a republican, you wiil vote
the republican ticket. You can’t
vote a part of tne republican ticket
and then cross over and vote a part
cf some other ticket. If you were
in a republican convention, you
would vote for republicans for the
republican nomination, would you
not? Just so in the primary elec
tion, The sole and only object of a
primary election is to nominate par
ty' candidates. Republicans will
therefor vote for republicans. That
is to say, they will vote for men
who call themselves republicans,
and who are seeking nominations on
the republican ticket. Democrats
will vote for democrats and so on
down thru the parties. When it
comes to the general election ! in
November it will be different.
There you can cut and slash all you
please, and the more you slash the
better it will suit me. If you vote
for the republican nominee for gov
ernor, you have my permission to
vote for every man on the democra
tic ticket for a local office. And
especially is this true of the demo
cratic candidate for the Assembly
in the First district. Silver Joe
Konkel is a particular friend of
mine, and I am anxious to see him
get a good, big majority in the First.
See the point, boys?—Leader Cla
