S. i There was no little comment and complaint on part of members of the county board that the beating plant of the new jail was yet far from comple tion, and the further fact that the old j structure was without a warming eys- I tem because a portion of material from that outfit was being placed in the new building. The latter was a part of the cont-act. The new system is far past due tur completion, it is a great in convenience to those having to submit j to the conditions. Editorial WHY THE COST CREEPS UP? Does the average housewife realize that she is paying $12.00 per bushel for corn when she invests in breakfast food at ten cents a package? That is the truth notwithstanding one can go upon the open market and purchase the above named quantity for about six dimes. Breakfast foods done up in packages have an enormous sale all over the country. Rich and poor alike begin the day with cereals and cream. They are wholesome, no doubt, but is a bushel of com shredded, flaked or done up in curley-cues any better than the grain ground up in a mill for a few cents? A lot of excellent things can be made from com meat and you are not paying $12.00 a bushel because it is shreded or flaked and put up in pretty red packages. That is why the cost of living has increased. It is not only true with corn but with other products as well. Our bacon must be 3ent to Chicago so that the transportation lines, packers, salesmen and merchants may be enriched by handling it. This same extravagance prevails in every department of housekeeping. The sup ply for the best bacon is always ex hausted at a high figure and the cheap er grades remain to be sold at a loss. Everybody wants the best. The butcher regrets the cow is not all porterhouse steaks and the pig all back bacon. The demand for liver is feeble but the cry for expensive meat is incessant. No wonder living is high. -Ex. The death of Postmaster Keyes of Madison, a week ago, removes from Wisconsin a most historic figure, a man of brains and a citizen of the highest type. With his family Mr. Keyes pio neered in Wisconsin when it was a ter ritory, coming from the east while he was a mere lad. He has been prom inent during all these years in what ever our commonwealth has made in achievement as a great state. True to friends and party Keyes was a central figure for more than six decades. He was first appointed postmaster at the state capital by President Lincoln and held commission from Grant, Garfield, McKinley, Roosevelt and Taft. As soldier, citizen and official his measure was full of integrity and helpfulness. An exchange with a bent for figures finds that the population of the United States and itß possessions has passed the hundred million point, and is now in excess of that figure by 3,962,757, which is considerably more than the whole number of inhabitants of the united colonies that went to war for in dependence and adopted the Declara tion on the 4th of July, 1776. There is less significance in numbers than in quality; but judged by either standard the United States now holds a fore most place among the nations of the earth. What will it be at the end of another century? In a recent talk Prof. Henry C. Tay lor of the college of agriculture, Uni versity of Wisconsin, said that the agricultural production of the state could be doubled by a more scientific operation of the land now in use, bet ter seed and improved breeds of ani mals. Only about three-fifths of the land of the state was in farms, he said, Wisconsin having approximately 14,- 000,000 sores of land not in farms. Of this area, between 11,000,000 and 12,- 000,000 acres should be improved, marshes should be drained and the 3,- 000,00(1 acres of muck and peat marshes made tillable. The short session of congress con vened on Monday and the President’s message was given to the two houses yesterday. With something of pride the Censor calls attention to the fact that a page synopsis of the long docu ment is sent out with today’s paper, a stunt unusual with country weeklies. After a residence in Wisconsin of more than half a century former United States Senator John C. SPooner, has taken up his home in New York City, where he has practiced his profession since his retirement from the senate. Mr. Spooner brought distinction to the state while he was a member of the foremost law-making body in the world. Do You Want Them?

Da via. ’ Mark Twain, who recently passed beyond, said of himself once that he wrote stories to keep the world from being too gloomy. “I always feel stronger,” be said, at another time, “when someone gives me a cup of good cheer and I try to pass it along. That life is useless which makes ail about it feel miserable.” It is not possible for many to write the inspiring, cheering thoughts cf wit and humor which Mark Twain placed upon paper. But they have the power—all have—to radiate sunshine and hopefulness. The gloom iest thoughts of a despondent person may be changed to those of joy by the simple manner of morning’s greeting from a friend. A picture postal card, a thoughtful letter, a happy telephone l call, T,iay change the mental atrooe-i phere of an entire day for some un happy heart. VIROQUA, WISCONSIN, DECEMBER 7,1910 LIVELY MOVEMENT ALONG THE LINE Eckhardt Packing of Tobacco ii Sold at Remuneralivt Froti, There is demand for all grades of tobacco held by packers and growers. Everything is wanted except the 1906 packing: that is too high priced and of too uncertain quality for profitable con sumption. Old goods are being picked up to the last pound and good figures are paid. The Eckhardt packing of 1909, con sisting of between 900 and 1,000 cases, ha3 been sold to the Esinlohr firm and a crew of workmen have been busily engaged for more than a week in samp ling the crop, and it is found to be in prime condition. It is understood that Mr. Eckhardt sold at a figure that will return him a handsome profit. Thirty machines installed at the ware house of the American Tobacco com pany in Madison at a cost of approxi mately $30,000, promise to do away with one-third of the labor now used in “stemming” tobacco. What three girls would do by hand, one girl can do with the aid of one of the new machines. The machines have been in the process of perfection for the past twenty year,', but not until the last two years have they been so perfected as to be of com mercial value. The machines are very complex in mechanism, but it is said by those familiar with their use, that an intelligent girl can readily under stand ana operate one, Edgerton Reporter: A brief season of casing weatner early in the week was not of sufficient duration to per mit of much of the hanging tobacco to be removed from the curing sheds for stripping, much to the disappointment of growers whose tobacco is .’-old and are anxious to complete the delivery. The hanging leaf is reported to be more thoroughly cured na ready to be stripped than in most seasons at this date, as the warm, dry October had furnished exceptiorml weather to ac complish this The crop there fore could be for mar ket as soon as removed from the barns when casing weather arrives.

It is a most appropriate thing to do. and it is not creditable to the state itself that tlis purchase was not long ago made. Wisconsin territory, partitioned from Michigan territory, was organized at Mineral Point, July 4, 1836, and the first legislature met at Belmont, in a two story building. It is the site of OBITUARY= Sarah D. Miner, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Huntington, of Labonon. Connecticut, was kora in Akron. Ohio. March 3, 1836. With her parents she moved to Wisconsin in pioneer days. The family lived in northern Crawford county and con stituted one of the first families of the comunity. On December 1, 1856. she married Parsons D. Miner. For many years they lived on the noted Miner homestead where five children were born to them: Wilbur E., Henry TANARUS., Mary E.. Hiram P. and Alice H.; all of whom are well established in business. Several years ago Mr. and Mrs. Miner moved to Carter, to live with their children. Wilbur. Henry and Mary. Death came on Novem ber 20. The remains were brought from Carter to De Soto and then conveyed to the old Miner home near Retreat where the funeral services wore held. The remains were interred on the old family lot in the beautiful Walnut Mound cemetery. Rev. Evert, a friend of the family, officiating. Mrs. Miner was an accomplished woman in many ways and posessed many excellent Qualities of character. MRS. TERKSSA H. WILSON After months of bodily weakness and at times seeming serious illness tne incident of death has befallen Mrs. Teressa Wilson, beloved and honored by a host of friendß with the near relatives in this city. Her old home friends at Bloomington join with the friends of these latter years in feelings of sympathy. Her death came in the night hours of Wednesday. November 80, 1910. Following a period of rather better health than she had en j wed for some months a sudden attack of pneu< mcnia severed the spirit from the frail body. Teressa H. Parker was born in Elgin. Illinois. Her parents were Americans from New York state. The date of her birth was January 22, 1844, so that at the time of death she had lived to the age of 66 years, 10 months and 8 days. When the subject of this sketch was a girl of but seven years of age the family moved by team to the vicinity of Bloomington, Grant county. The fath er took up government land and made this vicin ity his home. Here on December 26. 1867. she was married to David E. Wilson. Hero the children • /ere born, five of the six still living. The hus band passed into the great beyond in 1888. The mother kept the children on the farm for several years and then moved into the village of Bloom ington and in 1903 came to live with her children Ella and Albert in Viroqua. The children are Ella. Edwin. Mrs. L. T. Holcomb. William and Albert. Mrs. Wilson’s faith in her God was pe culiarly beautiful. It was an extremely real faith. Her church relationship was from childhood aays with the Baptist denomination. Her religion was to her more than the mere subscribing to a church creed but a vital working force in her life. Bhe was known far ahd wide as fone who exemplified the Master’s words when lie said, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these ye have done it unto me." Her home was a harbor for many sick and saddened relatives, and waa seldom without some sick relative who found in this mother a guardian angel. And never waa there a call from the sick and suffering of her community that ahe did not help. She shall be missed because her seat of usefulness will be empty. Following a short service at the home on Thurs day morning the mortal remains were taken to the old home at Bloomington. Rev. Chas. But ters, assisted by the local Baptist minister. Rev. A. L. Taylor, conducted the services and the in terment was Iwside the husband in the Nagle cemetery. _________________ Free Traveling Libra ,-ies There are over 650 traveling libraries in circulation in Wisconsin.
