Wilson Imagined That He Was Lost. There was quite an uproar in Wausau on Saturday afternoon and evening, all because “Billy” Wilson had not re turned from black-berrying at the time he said he would. A number of his friends had discussed the matter all day and came to the conclusion that if he did not come home on the evening train a crowd would go in search of him. So it was arranged, and soon several hun dred men had promised to go out. Dan McNaughton was to see that the switch engine was in readiness on Sunday morning to haul down all the box cars that could be filled with men. But when the 9:30 train came in at the N. W. depot, off stepped Uncle Bill, as sound as a dollar, with several baskets of berries. It seems that Mr. Wilson left home Friday mcming for Ringle, where he intended to spend the day in the berry patch at that place, but there were none there to speak of, so he went on to Clayton. Here he staid all night and went to work in the morning filling his baskets with berries, which he found in plenty. He was nearly persuaded to go to Let Wyatt’s place and spend ( Sunday. So near did he come to doing it that he had started with Let, then looking down and discovering that his trousers had been badly torn by the berry bushes, he changed his mind and told Let that he thought he had better go home and get a change of clothing. Really, the tear in his pants saved the crowd from going down and scouring the country about Ringle. As he stepped off at the depot, he received quite an ovation and was greatly sur prised at the thought that he, "Billy Wilson,” could get lost. He admitted that there w’as such a thing as being overcome by heat, but no such thing as his ever getting lost, even if placed in the worst tamnrack swamp that can be found in Wisconsin. Well, all are glad that "Billy” turned up, O. K. THE REUTER CONCERT. To be Given at the Opera House on Wednesday Evening, Aug. 14.

WALTER KINNEY At Last Landed in States Prison. John Malone, deputy sheriff/, went up to Minneapolis last Tuesday, after Wal ter Kinney, the bicycle thief. The ori ginal requisition papers were made out to John Malone. He came back with his prisoner and was met in this city by Sheriff Thos. Malone, who accompanied them to Waupun. When "Tom” board ed the train Kinney greeted him with "How d’ye do, Sheriff, how’s papa?” meaning Congressman Alexander Stewart. Kinney, while in Minnesota, has gone under the name of Walter Stewart, claiming to be a son of Hon. Alexander Stewart of this city. He had worked the religious racket for all it was worth, being very active in church es and Sunday Schools, where he hap pened to be located. In this way, and considering his family connection, he was enabled to get into good society and made several love conquests. At one time he became involved quite deep ly, and in order to find a way out, drew on Mr. Stewart for several hundred dollars. Sheriff Malone says lie stayed right with Kinney until he was clothed in a garb of stripes, Kinney showed him the scar made b> a bullet, fired from a revolver, held by Sheriff Malone a year ago. The bullet struck him in the thigh of the right leg, but produced only a llesh wound. Advertised Letters. List of letters remaining uncalled for in the Wausau P.

My Dear Mylrea Mrs. Peck and I have read of your terrible experience with the bull, and sympathize with you both, deeply. In discussing the matter as to what I would have done in your place. I am sure I have con vinced my wife that I am a brave man. I have told her I should have changed ends with the vehicle, sud denly, raised a red flag, and when the bull charged into the hind axietree I should have exploded the keroeene tank and had roast beef, rare done, with the hair on. If I was in your place I would arrange a gatling gun on the dash board, loaded with rock salt, and the next bull would get killed and salted at one discharge, and you would have corned beef plenty. Then you might take along some empty c&ns ana a soldering iron and can a lot of embalmed beef. I would put a set of steer horns on the bow of the vehi cle and a couple of mule hind legs on beniud. so it would hook or kick, as the ease might be. Yoa may bve to turn that confounded automobile into an incubator after all. M rs. Peck joins me in love to you all, but we are anx ious as to what you will do next. Yours, Gko. W. Peck. . . NEW . .

LOOKS BAD, Wisconsin Valley Association Ought to Square Itself with the Editors. The following is taken from the Rhinelander Herald, and it certainly needs an answer, it reflects upon the manager of the Wausau Record of this city and Secretary of the Wisconsin Valley Advancement Association. It does not seem possible that the ad vancement association did not authorize the invitation given to the editors of Wisconsin to come up the valley and camp on the banks of one of its beauti ful lakes. The officers of that associa tion certainly knew that the invitation had been extended and to make the plea, at this late date, that they didn’t authorize it, and therefore would not pay the bills, is pretty thin. Mr. Rose, let us hear from you. The article from the Rhinelander Herald is as follows: The Wisconsin Valley Advancement Association is placed in a peculiar posi tion. The corporation was organized for the'purpose of booming and securing free advertising for the valley from Grand Rapids to Eagle River. While the reputation of the valley was never higher, there is danger of the associa tion receiving some advertising of an unpleasant nature. Mr. Lester A. Rose of Wausau was elected secretary ot the i association at a salary, his duties oeing practically to collect and secure free j publication of facts about the valley. When the State Press Association had their annual meeting at Green Bay in February last, Mr. Rose was present and invited the Press Associa tion to take their summer trip through the Wisconsin River Valley and camp out at some point in the northern woods as the guests of the Wisconsin Valley Advancement Association. The invi tation was most cordial and drew a glowing picture _>f the pleasures of the camp life which they were to enjoy as the guests of the Valley Advancement Association. When the Press Associa tion reached the camping place there were some glaring discolpancles be tween the actuality and the descrip tion contained in the invitation, and there was a little grumbling. Mr. Rose at supper on that first night iu camp, macle the campers a speech in which be told them that the things with which ihey found fault would tie reme died; that they WERE THE GUESTS OF the Wisconsin valley advance ment ASSOCIATION and that Associa tion did not do things by halves but would see that everything was pro vided at once, to make them comforta ble. The campers wire very much sur prised to learn, when they came to break camp, that all of the thing.-, which had been furnished, as they had been informed, by the Advancement Association for their entertainment, had been furnished at the expense of the Press Association and were charged to them. They were in the position in which a man would be who had been invited to spend a week with a friend and was told at the end of the week that his bill for board was ten dollars. Now. so far as the Valley Advance ment Association is concerned, the Herald is informed by Mr. W. E. Brown, one of the directors of the as sociation, that the facts are. that this invitation was given to the Press Asso ciation without the knowledge or con sent of the Advancement Association. That after such invitation had been given and accepted, the secretary re-j ported it to a directors' meeting of the j association. That the directors refused to ratify it and said they would have nothing to do with it, but did not notify tbe Press Association of that fact. That the Valley Advancement Associa tion had never had anything to do with the excursion. Tbe Advancement Association made a great mistake in failing to notify the Press Association at once that the in vitation was without authority an<: would not be carried out by them, it was a failure, such as in a business transaction, would make tbem liable on tbe contract made by the secretary and in this transaction it certainly imposes a rnorai liability on tbem to souare themselves in some way with tbe Press Association. The Ad vancement Asso ciation should make at once such ex cuse as it can for having placed tbe Press Association in an unpleasant po sition and its officers in the most embar assing position that can be imagined. There is another phase to this adver* Using matter. Even free advertising should be truthful, and representing, as was done in a picture in the Sunday Sentinel three weeks ago, that the 120 ducks shot by John Barnes and Frances Column in North Dakota last fall, were the result of a four day’s hunt on the Big Rice north of Heafford Junction, is a kind of lying that will not pay in the end. If the Advancement Association has anything to do with the puffing of the duck hunting in this section, they should seo that t'ie truth is told or that it is stopped altogether.
