A regular storm period is in progress
at the close of July, Summer storms to
eastern parts of the country will prevail
during the first two or three days in
A reactionary storm period has its
center on the sth and 6th. Look for
marked increase of tempefature, falling
barometer and moderate to light misty
rains, but not sufficient for crops in the
middle and eastern sections.
A regular storm period extends from
the 6th to the 14th. This period will
bring threatening clouds and probably
yiolent winds followed with relief from
great warmth. The 9th is the center of
a marked seismic period, extending four
days before and after that date and about
the 13th an electricaljaud seismic dis
turbance of much force.'
A reactionary storm period is central
on the 17th and 18th, calling for renewed
summer heat, a show of rain and light
showers in scattered sections which will

The New Lisbon Times-Argus this
week contains a notice of the mar
riage of two popular Watertown peo
ple whose many friends can now ex
tend congratulations. The item fol
lows: “The home of Mrs. C. F. Cash
was the scene of a pretty wedding
last Monday at high noon, when a
cousin of Mrs. Cash, Miss Mayme
Herzog, was united in marriage to L.
A. Willenbockel, both of Watertown.
Rev. Fr. Pollack officiated, the beau
tiful ring service being used. Miss
Irene Cash played the wedding march.
The home was decorated for the oc
casion with ferns and cut flowers and
presented a very pretty appearance.
After the ceremony, a wedding break
fast was served. The young couple
left the same day for a brief wedding
trip after which they will return to
Watertown, where a fine new home
erected by the groom awaits their ar
rival. The bride has visited New
Lisbon on several occasions and is in
every respect a charming young lady.
Mr. Willenbockel is less known here
but appears to be a man of manly
character. We wish the young people
a bon voyage over life’s matrimonial
News of the Diamond.
Owing to rain all City league
games were postponed Sunday.
The Watertown Bittners received
uii awful trii-Y.nng at the hands of
the Stoughton team yesterday after
noon, the score being 11 to 0. The
Bittners were outclassed from start
to finish. Stoughton has a fast team
composed of all salaried men. Next
punday the Bittners will play the
KisselKars at Hartford.
The crack Pinkerton Tobacco com
pany team easily defeated the strong
Kunert company team at Washington
Park Saturday aftemoon by the score
of 7 to 3. Peterson, who was in the
box for the Kunerts, pitched good
ball, having 7 strikeouts to his credit
but his support was not of the best
at times. Carey done the twirling for
the Pinkerton team and was never in
danger as he had the Iron men eat
ing out of his hand all through the
game. Next Saturday afternoon the
Pinkertons will cross bats with A1
Price’s strong Bee Dee team. George
Richards will be on the mound for
the Bee Dees, while Herman Carey,
the former Milton College star, will
probably be selected to work for the
Pinkertons. The game will be called
at 2:30 p. m.
Heavy Damage Suite.
Frank Hand, by his attorney, F. V.
McManany of Oshkosh, has served
summons in a suit for SSOOO damages
for assault and false imprisonment.
The defendants are the Chicago &
North Western Railroad company,
Joseph Smith, passenger conductor;
Oha(rles Qraphin, Watertown; Kurt
Tolksdorf, Juneau; C. R. Feld, Wa
tertown, Judgment is asked of the
railroad company.
Recently on a passenger train from
the north, Frank Hand and another
man were put off by the conductor
for not paying fare, it is alleged. It
is also alleged that Frank Hand and
his companion, now under arrest in
Juneau, threw stones through the
windows of the coach, one of which
struck a passenger, Charles Graphin.
The train was stopped and pursuit
given the men, Hand being caught
and taken to the car and brought to
Watertown where he was placed un
der arrest on a charge of assault and
battery. He was confined in jail un_
til today when his case came up in
Justice Stacy’s court and he was
fined $5 and costs which he failed to
pay, and was taken to Juneau jail.
The suit for damages was begun in
Winnebago county circuit court and
will be an interesting one, no doubt.

Death of Well Known Undertaker
a Shock to His Many Friends—
Septic Poison Affects Bruise. To
gether With Weak Heart Causes
Death—Funeral Next Monday.
The whole community w r as shocked
yesterday morning upon learning of the
death of Mr. Otto H. Nowack, which
occurred in his residence, 207 North
Sixth street, at 9:30 o’clock this
morning. Death was due to blood poi
soning, but his condition was not
considered alarming even to his fam
ily until this morning. Physicians
were summoned but worked over him
without avail. A short while ago he
accidentally fell while working in
the garden, bruising his arm. Later
the wound became poisoned, but noth
ing serious was anticipated until it
weakened his heart and lungs with
the result that death ensued.
Mr. Nowack was a son of the late
Henry Nowack and was born in Wa
tertown May 24, 1868. After leaving
school he learned the undertaking
business in his father’s establish
ment and was later engaged in busi
ness with him, retiring to form a
partnership with William Kohls, the
firm name being Nowack & Kohls, do
ing a retail furniture business and
funeral directing. This he continued
until his untimely death. He is sur
vived by his widow, nee Kronitz, and
four children, the eldest being 14
years old, and on them falls heavily
the loss of a kind husband and father.
Mr. Nowack was a man well liked in
the community in which he lived all
his life and his sad taking off is
deeply deplored by all, and his fami
ly have the sympathy of our people
in the.ir great bereavement. He was
a good citizen and an honest, upright
man in all his dealings.
Unless other ararngements are
made the funeral will take place on
Monday afternoon.
The Beaver Dam Citizen tells of
the death of Mrs. Michael Lillis, as
follows: “Tuesday afternoon, July
25, 1911, at 2 o’clock occurred the
death of Mrs. Ellen Lillis, at her
home on South Center street at the
citv limits, aged 66 years', 11 months
and 27 days. This venerable lady
had long been a sufferer, and her
death at this time comes as a relief
and takes her to that great home
above. She was born August 22, 1844,
at Oswego, N. Y., her maiden name
being Ellen Meehan, and when 10
years of age moved to Watertown,
Wis., with her parents. On Novem
ber 19, 1868, she was married to
Michael J. Lillis and they have lived
from that time until her death in this
city at their home on South Center
To this union seven children were
born, all of whom are living, four
daughters and three sons —Miss Mar
garet Lillis of this city, Mrs. Matt.
Kennedy of Waukesha, Mrs. Eliza
beth Altenburg of Milwaukee, Mrs.
Frank Kennedy of Fond du Lac, Wil
liam Lillis of Milwaukee, Patrick Lil
lis of Beaver Dam, and Michael Lil
lis of Crystal Falls, Minn. Two broth
ers and one sister also survive, and
nine grandchildren. Mrs. Lillis and
her husband are one of Beaver Dam’s
oldest couples, having lived here for
43 years, and were always respected
and favored by all. A faithful, lov
ing wife and mother has thusly been
called to her great reward.
Another old and respected resi
dent of Watertown has been called to
her reward in the person of Mrs.
Katherine Lahey, widow of the late
James Lahey. Her death occurred in
the family home, 414 Montgomery
street yesterday morning following a long
sickness and was not unexpected.
Mrs. Lahey wsa a resident of Water
town many years and was devoted to
yher home She was born in
County Tipperary, Ireland, in Novem
ber, 1827, and came to Watertown
when a young woman. Six children
survive—Mrs. James Ryan, Mrs.
Edward Stallcup, Mrs. Robert C.
Dagenaip, Chicago; Miss Catherine
Lahey, William Lahey, Watertown;
Michael Lahey, Minneapolis. There
are also ten grandchildren and one
great-grandchild. The funeral will
take place Saturday morning at 9
o’clock to St. Bernard’s Catholic

A New Lineup.
There will be anew lineup among
the Goslings when they meet the
Burghardts at Washington Park next
Sunday. Abel, who held down third
sack for Watertown in the early part
of the season, has been secured and
will be seen in a Watertown uniform
next Sunday, but what station he will
hold down is not definitely known
now. It is probable that Belsner
may be stationed in right field, but
that is not certain as in the shift
about Schumann must be looked af
ter, One thing is certain, however,
and that is that George Richards will
be given a tryout on the mound. It
will not be a baptism for him as he
has been under fire before, but nev
ertheless, the fans are anxious to see
if he can fill Heimerl’s shoes without
rattling around in them. George has
■the speed and if he has the control
he should be able to give the visitors
a run for their money. Next Sunday
will tell the tale and qu ie a few fans
believe that he will make good, to
which the rest say, amen.
Abel, who was secured at Madison,
will finish the season with Water

Oddfellows to Picnic,
On August 29 the consolidated pic
nic of the I. O. O. F. will be held at
Waukesha Beach. The picnic includes
lodges from Milwaukee, Waukesha,
Watertown, Oconomovvoc, Hartland,
and Pewaukee. This is the first pic

chairman, and G. Goerke, Waukesha;
William Emerson, Pewaukee; Wil
liam O’Brien, Hartland; H. Werthei
mer, Watertown; William Peffer, Pe
waukee, arranged to have the grand
lodge officers speak on this occasion.
A record crowd is expected and Grand
Secretary Richard Hoe is taking an
active part in making this the great
est gathering of Odd Fellows in this
part of the state. L. IE, Colvin, past
grand master, of Marshfield, and
Clem W. Crumb, deputy grand mas
ter, of Milton, will also speak. A
program of games has also been ar
ranged and an interesting game of
baseball will be played in the after
noon. All necessary arrangements
for entertainment and sports have
been made and this should be the
monster picnic of the season. A
special band concert has been ar
ranged to entertain visitors. A spe
cial committee will confer with the
mayor and business men of Water
town to make this a half holiday for
all, so that the people may enjoy the
splendid program arranged by the
Recalls the Past.
In one of the show windows in the
drug store of E. M .Stapleton, West Main
street, is a petition dated March 15,1858,
asking the common council to extend
Washington street north to Margaret
street. The petition was evidently writ
ten by Carl Schurz, Who was one of the
petitioners. Mr. Schurz had piatted an
addition to the city and the extension
of Washington street was for the con
venience of those who might locate in
that addition. The inhabitants of Wat
ertown at that time did not anticipate
the prominence that Mr. Schurz would
reach in our national history and he
probably did not dream of the honors
which would come to him in his adopted

The clover and grass seed sown this
spring in wheat, rye and other grain,
has been parched up and killed,, either
wholly or in part on t housands of fields
in the central, western and northern
states. This is a serious situation and
calls fo prompt attention. If the
clover is not replanted, it means no
clover hay next season and the planting
of some substitute crop for hay next
spring at considerably increased expense
will probably be necessary. Not only
that, but the failure of the clover crop
means the loss of the whole farm plan
ot crop rotation. The situation should
be met at once. Every piece of new
seeding should be examined and, if it
has been burned up, steps taken to re
plant it at once.
One of the best ways known to get a
stand of clover is to disk the stubble
field as soon as the grain is off, allowing
the disk to run about three inches deep
and working the stubb.e into the soil.
The disking and cross disking should be
sufficient to clean it of weeds and grass
and put the top three inches of soil in
fine tilth. Keep the ground cultivated
until the first soaking rain, then sow
about ten pounds of clover seed mixed
with six to eight pounds of timothy per
acre and harrow the seed in. A still
better way than harrowing, is to sow
the grass seed with a grain drill, letting
the seed run down the grain tubes from
the grass seed box and covering the seed
from one to one and one-half inches

it makes much more rapid and vigorous
growth than when sown with grain, By
disking the land also, a much belter seed
bed is made than could be obtained by
plowing, since when ground is plowed
in dry weather, it breaks up lumpy and
lies up loose and is very difficult to work
down into a compact seed bed such as is
essential for the best results with clover
and grass seed. In addition, the grain
stubble worked into the top soil by disk
ing seems to form a top mulch especially
beueticial to clover.
This method of seeding clover is be
coming quite general in some of the
middle eastern states, where fanners
over large sections are giving np the
practice of spring seeding with grain
because of frequent failure to catch, and
seeding alone after the grain is cut in
stead. By this method, clover and grass
seed may be sown in the central and
western states as late as September 15,
and still make a good stand that will
not winter kill, but in the extreme
northern states the seeding should not
be made later than August 15.
To summarize, grass seedings in
spring grain have been burned out on
thousands of farms. Replant now by
disking the stubble about three inches
deep and sowing clover and grass seed
alone without a nurse crop by August 15.
