Marathon County's Great Advantages. Fast becoming the banner agricultural county of Wisconsin. The follow ing has been prepared under the auspices of the County Board, in pamphlet form, and will be distributed at the coming State Fair. Send this number of the PILOT *tc your former friends in other locations. LOCATION Marathon county is located in the “mr" north central part of Wisconsin, about AND ARFA rv.ivL-..n.. one hundred and seventy miles north west of Milwaukee. It contains forty-four government townships of land and is considerably larger than the State of Rhode Island. RAILROADS. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul “ Railway runs north and south through the county close to the Wisconsin River. The Chicago & North-Western Railway runs east and west, bow-shaped through the county, and the Ashland Branch also runs within a mile of the east boundary line of the county. The Wisconsin Central Railroad runs north and south along the western boundary of the county. In addition to these the Connor railroad runs easterly from Strat ford, a station on the Chicago & North-Western Railway, about fourteen miles. The Joseph Dessert Lumber Com pany railroad runs east of Mosinee about the same distance, and the Marshfield & North-Eastern railroad runs from Abbotsford, on the Wisconsin Central Railroad through the north-western part of the county. These minor railroads carry freight and p.-ssc. gers, although primarily built for logging purposes. SOIL. In the river valleys the soil is sandy with a mixture of clay. It is a good soil and easily worked, producing fine crops, but it is not as good a soil as lies back from the river valleys. These valleys are generally narrow and the area of sandy soil limited. Not ten per cent, of the soil of the county is of this charac ter. There was a heavy growth of timber on this sandy soil originally, indicating that it is not a poor soil. This Marathon county sandy soil is superior to the soil in the so-called “sand belt” which runs through central Wiscon sin. About two per cent, of the soil in the county is swamp. Much of this can be reclaimed. The balance of the land in the county is hardwood timber land, the soil clay, and is as good and productive as any land in the state. This land was originally heavily timbered with oak, basswood, elm, maple, butternut, hemlock, birch, balsam, ash and scattering pine. Large bodies of these kinds of timber are still standing. But little pine grew on this hardwood land. Some portions of this hardwood land are stony, the stone generally being small and easily removed. WATER. The whole county is well watered with creeks, streams and springs, which furnish a bountiful supply of pure, clear water and as there is no lime stone this is all soft water. There are very few farms in the county that have not springs or running water upon them. The level of the water is near the surface of the soil and there are few wells of any con siderable depth in the county. In most places good water can be had by digging wells not exceeding twenty five feet in depth. POPULATION The population in 1850 was 508; aMH rDAU/Tu in 1860 > in 1870, 5,885; in AND GROWTH. ISBO, 17,121: in 1890, 30.369; in 1900, 43,256; the increase in the past ten years being 12,- 887, or 42.4 per cent. The majority of the people in the county are of German birth or descent; the Scandinavian countries, Poland and Ireland contributing nearly all the balance of the jieople of foreign descent. SETTLEMENT AND Some parts of the county DEVELOPMENT v st ttlecl inthe 50s ’ the L c v uLUri lniN l . settlements rapidly extend ing over large areas of the county, until in many towns the population is as dense as it is in Walworth county or Dane county. Other sections of the county are compar atively new and unsettled, although there are no town ships in the county without settlers. AH parts of the county are connected by good roads, modern road machines being in use in nearly all towns. In all of the older towns cheese factories and creameries have been established, most of the latter on the co-operative plan. SCHOOLS. Marathon County takes pride in her “ rural schools. There are one hundred ninety schools in the county outside of the city of Wau sau. and one hundred ninety-eight teachers are* employed in these schools. The teachers are well selected and are faithful and competent. The county has organized and maintains at Wausau a training school for rural teachers, the first school of its kind ever established in the I’nited States. An earnest endeavor is made to give every child in the countv a reasonable chance to obtain a practical common school education, and the constant aim of those in charge of the educational work is to make the rural schools of Marathon County the best in Wisconsin. MANUFACTORIES The manufactories of the _ county are saw mills, flour AND MARKETS. mills, paper mills, veneer works, sash and door and excelsior factories, tanneries, breweries and quartz and granite works.

There is a ready cash market for farm products at the cities and villages along the railroads. DAIRY AND Marathon County is a great STOCK RAISING. , con “ t !' y by — nature for dairy and stock rais ing. While most of the pine has been cut and heavy in roads have been made upon its vast hardwood forest, there is an ample supply left for fuel and all farming pur poses for many years. For many years the farmers of Marathon County raised the staple crops of hay and oats which found a ready market in the logging camps. The inexhaustible fertility of the soil allowed this constant cropping, without any returns being made to the soil in the way of fertilizers. In recent years the farmers of Marathon County have commenced to realize that they had the greatest grazing and dairy country in the west. Consequently the development of dairy and stock raising has been rapid. Droughts resulting in crop failure are unknown. During the years 1900 and 1901, while some parts of the state suffered greatly from drought, Mara thon County crops were up to the average. The reasons for this are that the rain fall is more evenly distributed through the season, because of the location of the county in the midst of the great timber belt of Northern Wiscon sin. The nights are cooler than in Southern Wisconsin, and this is conducive to the proper maturity of farm crops. The rock strata underlying the soil, and the char acter of soil, is such that it retains moisture sufficient for the growth of crops ia the very driest time of the year. The pastures of Marathon County are green and fresh when those of less favorable parts of the state are seared and brown. CROPS. The best crops are hay and oats, rye and barley following. Wheat yields well but is soft, unless hard western seed is sown and the seed changed every second year. This is possibly owing to the fact that there is not as much lime in the soil as there is in the great wheat growing sections of the country. Peas, beans, potatoes, and all vegetables are produced in great abundance. Flint corn is successfully grown in all parts of the county. In recent years dent corn has been a successful crop, and as the country clears up will no doubt become one of the staple crops of the county. All kinds of small fruits grow abundantly. All hedge-rows, pastures and waste lands are covered with wild raspber berries and blackberries. In recent years apple orchards have been planted, and it is found that the finest apples of the hardy kinds can be raised here. The cherry grows wild in the woods, and the early Richmond has proved to be a hardy and productive variety for planting. The State Experimental Orchard is established near Wausau and the hardy varieties of apple trees are grown in this orchard and do well. Among the minor industries of the county is that of bee raising. There are hundreds of swarms of bees. some apiaries having from fifty to one hundred swarms. The basswood, white clover, fireweed and other plants furnish an abundance of bee pasture. Bees are wintered very successfully out of doors. One fact must be emphasized, that rye, winter wheat and grass never winter kills in Marathon County. The highways and pastures are car peted each year with white clover and the grasses, such as timothy, red-top and red clover grow spontaneously along all the old logging roads, and in many parts of the uncultivated lands. COUNTY BUILDINGS Marathon County has AND INDEBTEDNESS. “ ‘ omple , te . set “ f mod ' —- ern county buildings, in cluding Court House. Asylum for the Insane, Poor Farm and Jail. The asylum farm, near Wausau, consists of 735 acres. 200 of which are under cultivation. The county is free from debt, with the exception of $68,000 asylum bonds, which are retirable $4,000 each year. The net earning of the asylum is paying its own bonds. WAUSAU. The county seat of Marathon County. This city had a population of 12,354 by the last census. It has increased in population about 1.000 siuce then, and is rapidly growing. It is situated on the Wisconsin river, near the center of the county, under the shadow of Rib Mountain, three miles distant, and the highest point of land in Wisconsin. This mountain is 2.000 feet above the level of the sea. Wausau is the metropolis of the Wisconsin Valley and claims the finest school system, the best public buildings, and the most public spirited citizens of any community in Wisconsin. CREAMERY The following figures regarding A ttottpc' creameries are given to show how ■ this new industry is thriving, and also to show that the drought has not affected the milk supply of Marathon's creameries, as it has in some parts of the state: year was much harder than the boys nave heretofore undergone at any an nual encampment. ■ . COUNCIL MEETS. At an adjourned meeting of the coun cil, held Wednesday, the mayor an nounced that he had appointed F. P. Stone as a member *h the school board in place of W. H. My -.‘a, who refused to serve. President G. [). Jones, of the school board, in a communication to the council, stated that the cost of erecting the addition to the Lincoln school building would cost $35,000, or •5,000 more than the amount appropi at.nl, and asked that provision be made for the extra amount. John Kingle presented a resolution allowing the tward to give the contract to Miller Jr Krause, whose bid was SlS*.soo, and also instructing the finance committee to provide for its payment. The resolu tion was carried. Robert Bin at 7. had his saloon license transferred from Washington street to Werle's park, and Throm Jc Kiefler were granted a saloon license. It was voted to have the tire engine repaired, upon recommendation of the committee, at a cost not to exceed •IJMO. Tbe council directed the mayor to have printed rules, regulations and or dinances covering the police force. The mayor was instructed to collect a license fee of $2 from shows. Climax Laundry.

SOME CROP In order to give a better idea of just what Marathon County land OIA 11J 1 IIS. could dQ in the way of cropg) en . quirles on the following points were sent to five farmers in each town in the county. Replies were received from forty-six farmers: HAY.—In 1900 they had a total of 1,025 acres of hay, from which they cut 1,735 tons of hay, an average of 3,400 pounds per acre. This year, 1901, the same farmers cut from 1,070 acres, 1,767 tons or 3,300 pounds per acre. The above figures are based on first crop only. OATS. —In 1900 these same farmers had 718 acres of oats, from which they threshed 30,264 bushels, or 42.1 bushel per acre. In 1901, from 814 acres, they have 32,174 bushels, or 40 to the acre. RYE. —Only a tew reported on rye. In 1900 the average was 21 bushels per acre. In 1901, 17 bushels per acre. BARLEY. —In 1900, 3,570 bushels from 112 acres, or 31.8 bushels per acre. This year 4,363 bushels off 130 acres, an average of 33.5 per acre. WINTER WHEAT was omitted from questions asked but a few farmers gave their yield an average in 1900 was 27 bushels per acre, and this year 35 bushels. PEAS go about 30 bushels per acre. Robt. Freeman, of the town of Emmet, writes that he has three acres of Satchey’s Billion Dollar grass, which will go four tons to the acre, and four acres of millet, which will cut 2J tons per acre. Asked how their crops for these two years compare with the few years previous, these farmers replied as fol lows : About the same, 28; *. little better, 10; a little less, 6; much better, 2. Twenty-one sold no timber products last year, the other twenty-three sold $8,461 worth of logs, bark, pulpwood, cordwood and ties. They report the character of their land as follows : Clay, 17; clay loam. 4; clay with some rock, 15; clay with plenty of rock, 4; clay with some sand, 3; sand loam, 3. Hay, oats, barley, winter wheat and corn are reported as the best crops, but Marathon county farmers are opti mists, and a number report all good. One man with six teen children says they are his best crop. CONCLUSION. We have thus made a careful and —— “““’“ conservative statement of facts for investigation of the homeseeker. We invite him to Mar athon County to investigate these facts for himself. He need only spend a day in any part of the county to verify by personal observation and inquiry of residents, the cor rectness of what is set forth in this pamphlet. Marathon County is essentially a poor man’s country. The settler can come here with very little capital and purchase a tract of wild land on time at a low rate of interest, and in a few years has a large clearing and a good home, and be able from the beginning to make a living. He need not fear blizzards, drought or grasshoppers. He can be very certain that what he plants he will reap in abundant measure. In the winter time, when farmers on the prai rie have little to do except to twist hay bands for fuel, the Marathon County settler can be at work getting out cordwood, bark, ties, pulpwood or logs for lumber, or can find work in the nearby lumber camps or saw mills at good wages. He can build himself a warm and comforta ble house of logs that will cost but little, and will last him for many years. If he is near a tract ot wild land his stock can run until the settlement of the country makes this undesirable. The best proof of the prosperity that will come to a settler of Marathon County, is found in the splendid farms and farm buildings in the older settled parts of the county. These farms and farm improve ments will compare favorably with those in any part of the country. It is true that clearing the soil of the tim ber and preparing it for crops means hard work, but the results amply repay this toil. We make the assertion that year in and year out Marathon County farms will produce a heavier and better average of farm crops than any land in Illinois, lowa or Southern Minnesota. There has never been a crop failure of any of the staple crops in Marathon County. There has never been a drought that destroyed crops. There has never been a winter when the grass and winter grain was killed. No resident of Marathon County has ever been lost in a blizzard. No Marathon County farmer has ever been compelled to sell his stock because of lack of water or grass. L. K. Wright. Wausau, Ernst Koch, Merrill, Mat Mess. Marathon, Commissioners. Sunburn...

As an echo of a Fourth of July cele bration we have this week to chronicle the death of Henry Gnmtz. Our read ers will remember of seeing an account in this paper on July Sth of an accident which happened to this boy ou the day, first referred to. He in company with a Dumber of other boys of his own age was engaged in firing off an improvised cannon made from a section of gas pipe. The boys, previous to the accident, had put a large charge of powder in the toy guD aud after ramming it down with paper and grass, a fuse was attached and lit Henry was standing directly back of it. As soon as the tire reached the powder the cannon exploded and one of the fragments struck the boy in the knee ,ap He was taken to the hospital, where he remained for six weeks, afterwards being removed to his home. Twooperations were performed, the last one W ednesday morning when his leg was amputated in the hopes of saving his life. Tbe boy had grown so weekrrom long suffering that he did not survive the operation and died a few hours after. Deceased was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Gumtz and was but fourteen years of age. Tbe funeral was held Saturday morning from Zion's church. OASTORIA. Bttnthe lad YN HtW tiwjs BSgtt DEATH RESULTS Asa Sequence to the Severe Burning of Mary Novack. Mary Novack, who resided with her parents on east kill, left the city early in July and went to Tomahawk, where she secured employment as a domestic in the Lakeside hotel. About two weeks ago while at work in the kitchen of the house she accidentally over turned a can of kerosene and the oil saturated her lower clothing. Without changing clothes she still kept at her work and a few minutes later, while near the range, the kerosene became ignited and she was enveloped in dames. The other domestics ran to her assist ance and tore the clothing from her body but not before she had received burns that ultimately proved fatal. Her body from the waist down was burned in a terrible manner and after lingering in a hospital for two weeks, during which time she suffered the most excruciating pain, she died on Monday last. Her remains were brought here for interment and the funeral took place last Wednesday morning from the Polish Catholic church. Deceased was 18 years of age and was married a year ago to Jos. Hoppe, with whom she never lived. RESOLUTION OF THANKS. At a meeting of the Modern Wood men held last week the following reso lutions of thanks were passed which are self explanatory: Resoh ed, that this Camp of Modern Woodmen hereby extends its sincere thanks to all who assisted in making the picnic, which was held here, suc cessful; to the employers of labor who closed their stores; the citizens and business men who decorated for the occasion; the members of the several committees who spent time and ex- Sense on our behalf; to the Royal 'eighhorsfor their co-operation; those who subscribed and paid their assess ment of the guaranty fund to help de fray the expenses; the members of the visiting lodges for their turn out in such huge numbers, and the good feel ing which they displayed at our short comings; the Fair Association for the use of its grounds, and the adjoining owners for their co-operation, and to all other persons who assisted in the carrying out of this project. We realize that only by the hearty co-operation of all persons were we enabled to carry out the picnic so suc cessfully and take this means of ex pressing to all persons interested our acknowledgement of the obligation. Further Resolved, that this resolution be spread upon our records and a copy furnished to each of the city papers. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. In consideration of the beautiful gift ot a pottery set to Mayor Louis Mar chetti recently by the Modern Wood men as an appreciation of his services on Woodman Day, August Ist, the mayor has submitted the following acknowledgement: Wausau, Wis., August 19, 1901. To the Executive Committee and the Members of tne Wausau Camp, No. 1464, M. W. of A. Gentlemen : —I gratefully acknowl edge the beautiful present which you have seen fit to make to me, as also the letter accompanying the same, which is highly valued for the expression of kind sentiments towards me. To say that I was taken by surprise would hardly express my feeling when I came home and found the gifts, both the present and the letter, because for what little assistance I had rendered you, fthought myself fully compensated by the satisfaction I had of having the privilege of welcoming the largest assemblage of guests that ever came to Wausau. Let it not be said hereafter that the office of mayor of our city is without remuneration, for any man may be justly proud of the honor of represent ing our city on so great an occasion, and still be the recipient of so line a present and so kind a letter. Let me assure you that I will not fail to make use of your gift, and when so doing, will not forget to remember your order. Thanking from the bottom of my heart, and wishing that your associa tion may continue to prosper and flourish. lam yours, Very respectfully, Louis Marchetti. POINTS TO REMEMBER. When you buy a lot for a home g e one for which a plat is on tile and of record in the office of the register of deeds, and where the title is perfect, the ground level and not covered with rock. Such can be had by purchasing in the Johnson addition, where a natur al park adjoins it on the river’s side. Grand avenue is soon to be macadam ized to the Sturgeon Eddv road, the main entrance to the addition. The lots are large and cheap and the streets boulevarded. Parkways are to be built.

Don’t miss the first annual ball of the Agricultural Society, at Castle hull Thursday evening, Sept oth. Cone’s orchestra will furnish the music and Dode Fisk will call. Mr. Fisk is the famous caller of Fisk’s famous orches tra of Baraboo. The proceeds of the dance go to the Agricultural Society. The admission is 50 cents. M. G. Beilis’ and Otto Kickbnsch’s horses, Ray’s Pacer and Wood Echo, were taken to Stevens Point last night for the races this week. To avoid the rush the first two days all exhibitors are asked to send in their entries to the Sec’y in advance. John Ward is at work on the fair grounds, with a crew of men, repairing the track and back fences. Albert Althen will ship Minetta and Alfred B. to Wausau for the fair races. Life members can obtain the custom ary free admission at the east gate. Cos. G will give au exhibition drill Thursday afternoon at the fair. To the Members of the Agricultural Society; I want to ask all of you who are able, to give the fair a little financial support this year by buying tickets at the gale, and not falling back on the custom of going in on your life member tickets, it means several hundred dollars in our empty treasury. Your officers are giv ing valuable time to make the fair a success and to keep the grounds in shape. The fences and track are badly in need of repair, and there are a num ber of improvements which should be made If you take any interest in the society I am sure you will take these few words in good part and help yojr officers keep the grounds in repair and the fair up to the high standard it now holds. Respectfully, L. K. Weight, Sec’y. E. V. Buckley, a geologist of consid erable note, who on several occasions made visits to our city to look into the building stone deposits in this vicinity, has been appointed state geologist of Missouri. During the time which he spent here he made hosts of friends who will be gratified to hear of his food fortune. Editorially, the Milwau ee Sentinel has the following to say in part: Dr. Ernest V. Buckley, the young Wisconsin geologist who has been ap pointed state geologist for Missouri, is one of the most successful and talented young men ever graduated by the Wis consin University. He began his professional career live years ago as an lustuctor in geology in the university. Dr. Buckley, having selected geology as his profession, thoroughly prepared himself by a course under Professor van Hise, and after serving a year as assistant instructor was appointed as sistant state geologist, and in that capacity has demonstrated his ability. He first attracted public attention through his survey of the building stone of W isconsin quarries, and the products of his work are now on exhibition at the I an-American exposition. This survey was thorough and scientific and has done much to place before the public the good qualites of the stone found in the state. Dr. Buckley’s work has earned him a national reputation, and his ap pointment to the important and well paid Missouri position is a deserved re cognition of his abilities. The young scientist is a creditable representative of the state, and especially of the great state institution in vhich he was trained. NEAL BROWN. L. A. PRADT. 0. 8. GILBERT ABSTRACTS.
