Start Cutlery Factory
Anew cutlery works, begun on a
small scale, will soon be added to
Watertown’s industries. Joseph T.
Heon, a competent cutlery man, now
proprietor of the American house, is
fitting up a place on the property
with machinery and will soon engage
in the manufacture of first class cut
lery. He is no novice at the busi
ness but w r ill begin on a small scale
and enlarge the plant as patronage
increases. Mr. Heon is conversant
with the requirements of the trade
and doubtless will make a success of
the venture.

A Pleasant Gathering
The Misses Elsa and Margaret
Sproesser were hostesses at a party
given Saturday evening in Masonic
temple in honor of Mr. George H.
Beurhaus of Tacoma, Wash., who is
visiting former friends in Watertown.
Beautiful and gay was the assembly
room of the temple, the decorations
of palms and cut flowers making the
scene a most enchanting one, while
the cozy corners added a most charm
ing welcome effect. The reception
lasted from 8 until 9 o’clock after
which the young people enjoyed
dancing, the inspiration for which
was furnished by the Weber-Stube
orchestra. The punch bowl was pre
sided over by the Misses Margaret
Abele, Clara Hertel, Olive Achten
hagen and Helen Sproesser. The
entertainment afforded was of the
best and will long be remembered by
the favored guests, among whom
were Messrs, and Mesdames W. A.

ception, of which he was a member,

cemetery. Mr. McCabe was the fath
er-in-law of Robert J. Wynne, former
postmaster general, with whom he
made his home for many years. He

years and his eyesight had been

Only Stop at Junction
The surprising information was
given out today that passenger train
No. 1 on the Milwaukee road would
not stop at the depot hereafter. The
only stop will be made at the Junc
tion. This means a great inconveni
ence to Watertown people who may
visit in Chicago or the east. If they
miss the three o’clock train at Chi
cago they cannot reach home over
the Milwaukee road until the next

Frank Chadwick, aged 54, a former
resident of Watertown, is in jail
there and the officers are in a muddle
as to what shall be done with him.
Judge Heck does not believe the man
is insane and refuses to appoint phy
sicians to examine into his mental
condition. Superintendent of Poor
Tiedman and Dr. Schuetz declare
that he is insane. The man stood
upon the streets for hours staring in

him to talk have failed.

Change in Bank Force
Several changes were made in the
working force of the Wisconsin Na

rectors Friday evening, which will go
into effect on July 1.
R. M. Hahn, teller of the bank, was

well deserved and will be pleasing
news to his many friends and the pa
trons of the bank.

in the employ of the Milwaukee road
here several years, was appointed
bookkeeper in place of A. D, Platz,
who tendered his resignation several

young man of good character and

A fine exhibit of work done in the
manual training department of the
high school by the students is now on
exhibition in the show window of
Hertel & Hoffmann’s store in Main

executed and is certainly a credit to
this department of school work.
