PARDEE. Wausau is in deep mourning over the death of one of her most honored and beloved citizens —Eugene Dane Pardee, who departed this life on Friday, April 19th, 1901, at 12:15 o’clock, p. m. While Mr. Pardee had not been a well man for some time, still he had been able to attend to the business of his drug store and other interests, without apparant fatigue, and only occasionally was his condition such as to keep him at home. Two years ago he went south, hoping to get relief and to gain health again, and last year, accompanied by Mrs. Pardee, he spent a time recuper ating in Indiana. His mother’s death, which occurred in February last, seemed a load of sorrow that was ever with him. On the morning of the date above mentioned,- Mr. Pardee went down to his store as usual, at an early hour, although he was somewhat indis posed. He did several errands, met quite a number of his frinds and attend ed to the regular routine of business up to about 9 o'clock, when he was heard to go into the basement. As lie often did this to look over and examine stock, no attention was paid to the fact that his absence was prolonged. A friend came in to see him on business, about 9:15 o’clock, as near as can be calculat ed, and the clerk went below to call him and was shocked to find him lying upon the floor, unconscious. No time was lost in calling in physicians and in a few moments Drs. LaCount, Jones, Spencer, Rosenberry, Trevitt, Willard and E. M. Kanouse were present. Up on examination they pronounced Mr. Pardee suffering from a severe stroke of appoplexy. They hoped to resuscitate him and directed their best efforts to that end, but without avail. His wife and children, with the exception of his son, Neely, (who was in Madison, a stu dent of the Wisconsin University, who arrived home in the evening.) were by his side during these trying hours. At nearly the noon hour, the patient was taken to his resi dence, at the corner of Sixth and War ren streets, where he passed away at the hour above mentioned. The sad news quickly passed from lip to lip throughout the city, aud it pro duced the most profound sorrow. Many refused to believe the imror un-' til it had been verified again and again, hoping that it might prove untrue. Wausau loses good citizens continuous ly, but',all will agree that only occasional ly are we called upon to mourn the loss of so a noble anti good a man as was Mr. Pardee. He was pre-eminently a man of sound judgment and was never found to be in the wrong on questions which were of vital interest. While he objected to holding official positions, municipal or otherwise, still it was such pure minds as his, coupled with a fear less disposition, that have worked many needed reforms in our community. Eugene Dane Pardee was born on the sth day of November, 1844, at Wooster, Ohio. He was a son of Mr. Eugene Pardee, a prominent attorney of that state. A part of his boyhood days was spent in Connecticut with his grand mother. While a young man, during the latter part of the civil war, he was a railroad telegrapher. Later, he went into the pottery business with his cousin, James Pardee, at Wadsworth, Ohio. Disposing of his interests in that business he came to Madison and en tered into business with his brother, A. A. Pardee, conducting a general drug store. On the 4th day of Septem ber, 1872, Mr. Pardee was united in marriage to Miss Nellie Gray, at tyladi son. They continued to reside in that city until 1885, when they came to Wausau to make this city their per manent home. Mr. Pardee opened a drug store in the Canfield block, corner of Third and McClellan streets. Here he conducted a very successful business until January, 1892, when the building which he occupied was swept away by the fire which burned our opera house and all the stores on that block, border ing on Third street. Temporary quar ters were secured and when the opera block was again built up, a store was taken near the middle of the same block and this he has continued to oc cupy, and has operated a growing drug business ever since. Mr. Pardee was also agent for the Standard Oil Com pany and was a most valuable man for the institution as he was considered an expert in oils. Mr. Pardee was at times interested in some of our manufactur ing institutions, and carried on quite a number of real estate deals. He was a very successful man of business and never missed an opportunity to assist in the upbuilding of our city and worked for its best interests in every way possible. With all that he had to think of in a business way, he devoted much time to charitable work and that wb.vli he did was done without display of any kind. The good which he did along this line will prove a lasting monument to his memory." He was a devout and valued member of St. John’s Episcopal church, of this ePy, and at the time of his death was Seuior Warden of that society. In August, 1893, deceased was elected to the honorable position of President of the Pharmaceutical Society of the State of Wisconsin and at the 15th an nual session of that society the travel- A MISTAKE CORRECTED. There seems to be an impression that the popular comedy, “A Romance of Coon Hollow." is produced by colored performers. This mistake is probably due to the fact that it is a Southern story, and that a troupe of singing and dancing "pickaninnies” is carried as an extra feature. The cast is composed entirely of actors and actresses of repu tation, many of w horn were in the orig inal New York production. The well known star. Lizzie Evans, heads the cast this season. “Coon Hollow" is a pretty Southern story, possessing ia'- tense and exciting incidents. The New York Herald styled it “A Tennessee Old Homestead," and Alan Dale, the causic critic of the New York World, had this to say of it: The strength of ‘Coon Hollow’ lies in its humanity. The characters make the play. They are flesh and blood, real, pulsative be ing." The same production wiil be given "A Romance of Coon Hollow" here that marked the New York pre sentation, all the handsome scenery and effects being carried It will be given at the Grand Opera House on Friday April 26. This is the show that made such a hit here last season. Prices 25-35-50-75 cents. ing men of that association, by secret ballot, voted Mr. Pardee the most pop ular truggist in Wisconsin. By his death, Wausau has lost one of her best and noblest of citizens and the family a most loving and devoted hus band and father, and to whom is ex tended the sympathy of the entire com munity. Those from abroad who arrived in the city on Saturday to attend the funeral were: F. H. Gray, of Fergus Falls, Minn., brother of Mrs. Pardee; Miss Ethel Roberts, of Woostei, Ohio, niece of deceased; I. H. Battin, of Osh kosh, formerly agent for the Standard Oil Company, with headquarters at Mr. Pardee’s store; Donald Ploss, of Meuasha, formerly head clerk for Mr. Pardee, Deceased leaves a wife and three children to mouru his loss. Neely, E., aged 22 years; Emma, aged 16; and Franklin, aged 9. He also leaves two brothers, A. A., of Madison, andOssian, of Spokane, Washington. The funeral services took place at the residence on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock and were in charge of Reid Goodrich, the Rev. W. J. Cordick, rector of St. Johns’ church, officiating. The Episcopal burial service was very beautiful and impressive. Rev. Cordick paid a very high tribute to deceased as to his every day life; as a man in worldly affairs and also as a sincere worker in the field of Christian ity; that he invariably practiced what he preached. Rev. Cordick very feel ing referred to the many kindly acts performed by Mr. Pardee to him per sonally, and as a member and officer of St. John’s Episcopal Church, guided and directed matters with such interest and sincerity that the result was most pleasing to all concerned. All present could heartily endorse every word of the deserved eulogy pronounced by Rev. Cordick, and to the statement that deceased would be missed by every body and that his place could never be filled, all in their hearts reverently said, Amen. The address was filled with comforting words to all. The music was furnished by the older members of the boys’ choir of St. John’s Church, assisted by Mrs. Clinton Smith, Misses Madge aud Hermione Silver thorn with Miss Marion MacDonald at the piano. Several of deceased’s favor ite hymns were sung, closing the services with the one which he most loved to hear —“Rock of Ages.” The services were very largely at tended and the profusion of beautiful flowers which filled every room of the home, spoke volumes of the love and esteem in which deceased was held in the community, and in the state, for beautiful desigus came from every part of Wisconsin. One especially was a beautiful wreath of roses and violets from the Standard Oil Company. According to the previously expressed wishes of Mr. Pardee, the burial will take place on the family lot at Madison where others of the family are buried. This Monday morniDg, at 10 o’clock, Rev. Cordick made a prayer at the resi dence and the remains were taken to Madison the following old friends and neighbors acting as pall bearers lo the C., M. & St. Paul depot: ACTIVE. A H. Grout, W. o. Kollock, I. H. Battiu, C. B. Bird, E. Latshaw and E. B. Thayer. HONORARY. W. C. Silvertborn, A. V. Gearhart, W. B. Schollield, H. G. Flieth, F. L. Hudson, Geo. Hart, C. W. Harger, R. E. Parcher, R.

There were a large number of citi, zens in carriages who followed to the depot, and the honorary pall bearers formed on each side of the hearse and marched to the train. Those who accompanied the remains to Madison were Mrs. E. D. Pardee and family; F. H. Gray, Miss Ethel Roberts, Rev.,W. J. Cordick, Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Kollqck and I. H. Batlin. s- * 11- RESOLUTION. At a meeting of the vestrymen of S. John’s Episcopal church, held last Sat urday noon, April 20, 1901, the follow ing resolutions were adopted: Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God, in His wise providence, to take from us and out of this world the soul of our fellow-laborer in the church, Eugene Dane Pardee; therefore be it Resoloed: That we, rector, warden and vestrymen of S. John’s parish, place on record this expression of sor row aud appreciation: we sorrow with the family of Mr. Pardee in the great loss which they and we sustain: it is the will of God and we bow to ft, but the loss is great and words are inade quate to express it. Our appreciation of Mr. Pardee as hereby testified to as being as heartfelt as our sorrow.

And further be it Resolved: That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of Mr. Pardee, and we pray that the Father of Mercies, who is the only help in time of need, may be their effectual comfort in this our common sorrow.

The cere mony was witnessed by the relatives and only a few of the intimate friends of the contracting parties. There were no groomsman or bridesmaids, but un attended and without music, the young couple took their positions at the east end of the parlor where a massjof palms and Easter lillies made an' effective and beautiful back ground. The bride looked handsome in a bridal gown of point du esprit with lace applique over white .taffeta. She carried a large cluster of lillies of the valley. The ceremony was performed by the Rev.

The shades were drawn and all Ihe rooms were lighted, the electric bulbs being cov ered so that a soft mellow light was cast, adding much to the beauty of the scene. The guests, after tendering hearty congratulations were served with refreshments—coffee in the dining room, frappe in the library and punch n the music room. During the reception, Geier’s orches tra, which was stationed in the music room, discoursed sweet music.
