The lecture of Major Birkhaeuser, of Milwaukee, on the Philippines which was delivered at the opera Inmse on Thursday evening was quite poorly at tended and the Spanish-American war veterans, under whose auspices the Major lectured, scarcely made expenses. The gentleman was not much of a suc cess as a man of oratory but he was aided by stereopticon views that were pronounced simply fine by those who •aw them aud u hich, pethi-i s served better than extensive readings on the subject to g‘ ve one more knowledge of those far away islands and their jn-ople. The pictures as shown, which were tak en from life, together w ith the words of explanation were highly instructive and entertaining and those who visited the opera house that evening were well repaid for doing so. CASTOR IA for Infants and Children. Tkt KM Yh Han Always Boogtit MEMORIAL EXERCISES The Program Successfully Carried Out and the Turnout of Citizens Unusually 4 Large. The day was a beautiful and ideal one for Memorial services, aud even the chronic kicker was happy and looked satisfied. The program, which the members of Cutler Post had framed, was carried out nearly as bad been ar ranged. Shortly after the dinner hour people began to cluster about the court house square, and it was not long until the Post, Cos. G and Cone’s band put in an appearance. At 1:15 Att’y. F. P. Regner, one of the speakers chosen for the day, ascended an improvised plat form near the monument on the court house square and addressed those present. His words were well chosen and were in keeping with the spirit of the day. A synopsis of Mr. Regner’s speech is here appended: The heroes who assemble here on the 30th of May in each year are growing less in number with every recurring Memorial day and as these veterans are passingfrom us. the coming generations are prone to forget the memories of former years, the bravery of the men who have fallen in defense of their country. Yet the nation that forgets its defenders does not deserve them, and in keeping with this thought, I wish today, at these exercises, in honor of the unknown dead heroes, to make my small contribution to prevent such forgetfulness, by speaking to you of the courage aud loyalty of the union sol diers—the boys who met at the point where the lightning burned amt the thunderbolts fell, who, when the shock of war came, were at the front to meet its terrible force, and who stood there like a wall of fire and as firm as the everlasting hills. As we decorate this monument with flowers, we think of the brave boy in blue leaving for the front, tearing him self from father, mother, wife or chil dren, to answer his country’s call. We think of the parting from home and family, from all that was dear to him, to go forth to baHle that the flag which floated over our nation might be a true emblem of liberty. We think of the watching and waiting through the months and years which went to slow; of camp and march, of siege and battle, of danger and death, of victory and de feat. We think of the hundred thou sands taken prisoners during the Civil war, who, when death was stalking within the walls of their prison, when starvation was almost overcoming their brave hearts, when mind was receding and reason tottering, were offered their freedom if they would enlist in the Southern army, who preferred to suffer all rather than prove false to their country. " r * * * * Nobly has the Union soldier per formed his duty. On more than a thou sand battlefields has he gloriously vin dicated the cause of his country. The world know s no man more brave, more patriotic than the boy in blue, and I glory in his gallantry and devotion to tlie grand cause of human liberty. His pluck, his energy, his enthusiasm are irresistible, his determination is un conquerable and his patriotism sublime. And now shall we forget? Shall we forget those boys in blue who with Sherman marched from Atlanta to the sea? Shall we forget those who, with Sheridan, swept the valley of the Shen andoah ? Shall we forget those who with Thomas stood like a rook atChica mauga ? Shall we forget the three hundred thousand boys in blue who came not back at the summons of peace? Who withered away in the hot breath of battle at Donaldson and Shiloh, in the bloody trenches before Vicksburg, up close to the sky u Lookout Mountain, in the great battles of the Wilderness and in the crucial struggle at Gettysburg, ev ry where that cannon roared and battle raged? 1 answer you no! So long as there re mains within our breasts one spark of gratitude for those who suffered, one spark of patriotism for the government the-' protected, one spark of love for tin* dear old flag which they never allowcil to trail in the dust, so long as the Republic shall last or time endure, must we.cherish in <>ur hearts the mem ory of those who offered their all on the altar of freedom. But we must do more. We must fol low the examples of these veterans; we must be filled with the true spirit of pa triotism manifested by them; we must put the welfare of our nation always uppermost in our minds and hearts; we must be ready to meet every danger, to overcome every difficulty. And the country is today confronted by grave dangers, by perplexing prob lems. A few monihs ago Win. McKin ley, who was probably the best beloved President who ever sat in the chair of Washington, was struck down by the hand of an assassin, fell a victim to the social evil, Anarchy, an evil that is at tacking the very fountain-head of re publican government. Yet the bullet that struck McKinley was not aimed so much at the man as at the social aud political fabric of w hich he was the honored head. It was aimed at our national liberty. Here is righting for you and me, here is the opportunity to manifest our patriotism, to make our sacrifices for the country. A few years ago this country was se lected by Almighty God to light a war for humanity, for liberty. Through the valor and patriotism of our soldiers we have stormed the heights of San Juan under Shatter and Wheeler, burst through the ramparts at Manila, wrenched the hand of the tyrant from the throat of Cuba, bringing civilization and freedom to the world. Asa result of ihe war, vast territories tn the East have been acquired, mountains pos sessed of mineral wealth of untold value; islands with commercial advantages that give ; us the control of China’s mar kets. We have grown to be a world power,—acknow ledged as the foremost nation of the globe. But with this wealth and power have come new dangers, perplexing prob lems. Questions of vital importance confront the American people—we must provide a government for a race thous ands of miles aw ay Shall it be a colon ial government, similar to that granted opr Revolutionary fathers by England, shad we grant them all the rights and privileges of a citizen of the United Sta'e', or ►hall we give them their na tional independence* In solving these problems that con front the American people let us give them most earnest consideration. I*et us be careful how we listen to the voices of adventurous statesmen; how we satisfy the aspirations of greedy specu tutors. Let us always look to the t*t interests of the country ; to the weLare and happiness of the people. let ns always be guided by the tcv*ines of the past; hy the undying principles that “Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the gov erned,” “That all men are born free and equal” and we will preserve the republic of the fathers intact in all its original splendor, we will preserve our uational glory and our national honor, we w ill preserve our American civiliza tion and our American manhood, “The government of the people, by the pe<*- ple. and for the people,” will not perish from the earth, and the “Stars and Stripes” will forever wave gloriously over the of the free and the home of the brave. After Mr Regner had concluded his address the different bodies fell in line and marched to the cemetery, the par ade being made up of the band, old soldiers in carriages, Cos. G, flower girls, schoolchildren, police, citizens in car riages. etc. The line of march was dropped at the soldiers’ monument where services were conducted accord ing to the G. A. R. ritual and a prayer was offered by the Rev. F. A. Pease and the band discoursed patriotic mucie, after which Att’y. A. L. Kreutzer, orator of the day, made his address, which was in part as follows: We meet here today upon this sacred ground, dedicated to our beloved dead, in memory of the men whose deeds of valor and heroism were household words and whose sacrifices for the pres ervation of the Union are and 1 hope always will be an inspiration to the generations to come after you to stand by the Government aud the flag in time of conflict such as you took part in and in which this country of ours is engaged in today.” The circumstances under which these memorial services became necessary are still fresh in the memory of all. They gave rise to the greatest outburst of patriotism the world has ev o r wit nessed. History affords no example to equal it. The great heart of the nation was touched by the poisoned arrow of rebellion, but the spirit of revolution became quickened. The great passion, called patriotism, which aims to serve ones country and to main tain its laws and institutions, became inflamed. Mighty armies gathered, great battles were waged, vast treas urers were extended, many precious lives were sacrificed, but as gold is re fined by fire, so the nation emerged from the conflict, purged of the dross of slavery. All honor to the father land made this grand result.” “The dead we see not, but the tens of thousands of marble slabs which mark their resting places are testimonials to us of the later generation; they speak to us through the maze of years of duties Dobly done. What are these lessons worth ? Are we to profit by their ex amples ? There can be but one answer. Existence is a constant struggle. New duties and responsibilities are upon us and as you bore manfully the burdens of war, and have rendered cheerful obedience to the demands of the times, so we as living descendants of that patriotic stock, must meet the obliga tions of the present. While your boys are fighting battles in a foreign land for the glory of our country, we, who re main at home, are confronted, with problems, that are equally as important, that effect the homes and firesides of every individual in this great country, which seems to me require the highest patriotism, statesmanship and loyalty to the flag for which you fought, and for whose preservation, thousands have suffered death. These problems are commercial and industrial. They are vital to the ve y existence of our Demo cratic form of government. The finan cial question, the tariff question, the labor question, the great trusts and mo noplies, that are being formed every day, all these are living questions. Questions that reach the homes and fire sides and the life of every citizen. Questions that require the most careful consideration. They cannot be settled by armed forces in battle arrayed. The smoke of the battle or the thundering of cannon will not help to their solution. The lessons of the past, the projects of the future all unite in contest, care aud circumspection in their consideration. It is therefore our present duty, as patriotic citizens, living within the shadow of the great war, to take to the solution of these great problems the utmost that good wisdom that honor and foresight can suggest.” “I have simply touched upon these problems to impress you that today as well as thirty-five years ago, it is the duty of every parent to inculcate in the bosom of their off springs such loy alty and patriotism as will aid ihetn in hours of trials and tribulations, to solve Him difficult problems that may be pre sented to them, and to inculcate that spirit that will give due regard and respect to the surviving members of that great army as they are entitled to, because it will be only a few years be fore they will all have passed away. • We consecrate anew this day be cause of the newly-made grayes scat tered throughout this and foreign lauds. Graves in which lie sleeping the stalwart forms of the bra vest sol diers of the best and noblest country on the face of the globe, soldiers of the SpanishAraeriean war. When the call came for troops to battle for. an oppressed people and for humanity, it fouDd the sons of the old warriors who fought for the Union thirty-five ijears ago, as ready and willing to sacrifice life, limb, home and mother, as were the fathers before them. Out of thin county and city marched as brave a comDany of soldiers as ever faced an enemy. This spirit of patriotism that actuated the fathers in 18(32 was again manifest in 1898. With Hags flying and drums beating, one hundred and three\oung men left your homes and firesides and entered the service of their country Of this number four are today sleeping peacefully in their green little teDts. and their spirits are holding sweet communion with the thousands of other soldier spirits who have gone before, and are dwelling in that spirit land Four homes in this city and community are surely conse crating this day anew.” The exercises concluded were the most successfully carried out of any arranged for a Memorial Day program in recent years, and the number of people who visited the cemetery has been variously estimated at from 5000 to rtOOO. There were quite a few in from the country who had loved ones buried in the Wau:,<*u cemetery, and though there were noexereises of any kind in the forenoon, the morning hours were spent hy people it* ueoorating the graves of dt parted ones. FIELD MEtT. Grades Contest at the Close of School.

Berger, which occurred at her home in this city at 12:45 o’clock last Wednesday morn ing May 28th, 1902, was a great shock to her parents, sisters and brothers and caused very deep sorrow throughout the city, for she was very highly es teemed and a great favorite with all who hail the honor of her acquaintance. Miss Berger was taken ill one year ago with appendicitis and from which she never fully recovered, though able to be about and attend to her school work. About a mouth ago there was a slight recurrence of her trouble and as it grew worse she consulted the family physician who recommended an opera tion as the only chance of saving her life. The operation was performed one week ago last Saturday, ami was very successful and she improved until Tuesday, when there was a change for the worse, and notwithstanding all that loving hands could do, and expert medi cal skill could accomplish, slu passed into the great beyoud. lu Miss Berger’s death, the home loses a cheerful, loving and devoted daugh ter and sister, ami the community a love ly character; a youug lady whose chief aim was to do good to humanity and sh< was never so happy as so occupied. She was a valued member of the First Methodist church of this city, and also of the Epworth League, and she was a very earliest worker in both socities. Miss Berger was born* iu DePere Oß the 2d day of December, 1877, and came to Wausau with her parents sixteen years ago, and this has been her home ever since. She attended our city schools until she was 17 years old and then commenced her work as a teacher. For four years she taught what is known as the Mosinee Hill school and for three years past, has been a teacher in the schools at Scho field and was greatly beloved by her pupils. She leaves a father, mother, three sisters and two brothers to mourn her loss. , ‘ The funeral was held from the home on Decoration Day, Friday, May 30lb, at 10 o’clock a. m., the Kev. Frank A. Pease officiating. The profusion of beautiful tloral desigussent in—tributes from loving friends —attested strongtr than words to the great esteem in which deceased was held in the community. I Besides the services conducted by Rev. Pease, Rev. Mueller, pastor of the i German M. E. church of this city, in a] brief address, paid a glowing tribute to ' the memory of deceased. The pall bearers were as follows ; James Hull, Albert Kuhlman, Will! Johnson. Wesley-Single, Frank Harney and Walter Rosen berry. The funeral cortege was one of the largest ever seen in our city. SILK WORMS. The Baptist society of this city has secured an extraordinary attraction, w hich will be in this city for one week only, commencing June 10th. At the time they will have established in one of the stores in this city a regular silk colony and the beautifully attired op eratives will be at work night and day. They are genuine Chinese silk worms. After commencing work they do Dot stop to eat, drink or sleep until their task is finished, then they take a good long sleep. It is a sight of a life time, it is a very interesting study of one of nature's most wondrous processes aud must be seen to be appreciated. Every one. especially the young should embrace this opportunity to earn a lesson in natural history. The rich cream color of the worms, the golden sheen of the silk and the and srk green of the foliage upon which they f-* 1 iQgjie a very beautiful picture, especially at night under artificial light.

MEMORIAL SERVICES. Very touching and appropriate memorial services were held at the Methodist church, Sunday morning in memory of Miss Emma E. Berger, who was one of the most beloved of the young people of the society, and a very earnest worker in the Epworth League. The church was very beautifully but simply decorated for the occasion. On the platform, to the right of the speaker, was the Epworth League em blem, draped in mourning, and at the foot of the ca el a large bouquet of cut dowers. Upon the pastor’s table some flowers, while large ferns added to the decorations. The Ladies’ Quartette furnished the music, and sweetly sang, “Lead, Kindly Light.” Rev. Frank A. Pease took as his theme, “The Mystery of Life,” and for his text these words, “We Spend Our Years as a Tale that is Told.” The sermon was a fitting tribute to the memory of her whom all loved, and, at the same time, was a faithful presentation of the Christian teachings of how to live. There was a very large congregation, every seat be ing taken. At the service of the Epworth League in the evening, conducted by “Father” James, the following resolu tions were presented and adopted: Whereas, God in His wisdom has taken from us our dear friend and efficient worker in the church, Emma E. Berger, ami Whereas, The Epworth League feel the sorrow of a great loss, lx* it Resolved, That we trust in God to lead us in the gloom as well as in the open day; for we believe “All is of God ! If He but waive Ills hand The mists collect, the rain falls thick and loud; Till, with a smile of light on sea and land, bo : He looks hack from the departing cloud. Angels of Life and Death alike are His; Without His leave they pass no threshold o’er; Who. then, would wish or dare, believing this, Against His messengers to shut the door ?” And be it further Resolved , That we emulate the Chris tian example of our departed friend in her ministrations of love everywhere, in her sweetness and strength of char after, anil in her fidelity to Christ and tin* church. Resolved, That we extend our sym pathy to the bereaved family, and by our most earnest prayers commit them to Him who “hath borne our griefs and •carried ouv sorrows.” Resolved , That these resolutions be spread upon the minutes oi our Chap ter, and that a copy be given to the family, and to t'uc press for publication.

Hut the Citizens of Wausau are Not Yet Moving Out of Town to Any Great Extent. The following dispatch totheMilwau waukee Free Press, published the early part of last week, set Wausau people to thinking that perhaps old Rib Hill might take it into its old hoary head, to belch forth lava, mud andicinders and bury Wausau and all its! inhabitants, and there has been a close watch kept of the old hill, anil while there hasn’t been a general exodus, a few have gone, some to Europe, others to the lakes. A good big fire built upon some of the exposed points of the hill would no doubt start everybody on a run for Mer rill,—the nearest point where there is an unlimited supply of food, and where live a generous whole-souled people. The following is the dispatch that worked us all up: Milwaukee Wis, May 25.—Reports reached Milwaukee to-night from Eagle River, Wis., Florence, Wis., and Iron Mountain, Mich., of the stortling behavior of Thunder mountain, the highest point of land in Northern Wis consin, which is reported to be belch ing out smoke at an alarming rate. It is know that at Green Bay. sixty miles away, a hot boulder fell on a street corner and was still red hot when morning came. The light of the moun tain, it is said, can lie seen for miles. The reports come from localities seventy-five miles apart. According to the reports the few homesteaders are hurrying to the set tlements in alarm. The strange actions of the mountain have caused a panic in the surrounding counties. Thunder mountain is more of a plateau than a hill, and in the center of the mountain is a great pest bog and swamp. The mountain has ftel dom been visited, for it is almost a solid rock, with vegetation at the top and a cedar swamp surrounding it. State geological authorities have de clared it to be of volcanic origin. According to tonight’s report over 100 settlers have reached Eagle River. Fiery red sutsds and a sucession of severe thunder storms uear the mountain have added to the general consternation DUPED. The women who was deserted by her husband some weeks ago while living near Blosinee, and whose four children were taken from her and placed in the Spartn-orphanage on account of her not being able to care for them, made a call on Judge Miller recently and asked thnt divorce proceedings be instituted against her husband at county expense. The Jndge made inquiries into the matt< r and found that she in tended marrjinga widower who was desirous of a bouse keeper for his child ren, and who was able to pay the ex pense of divorce proceedings, and her request were therefore refused. Later she called again and thanked the Judge for delaying *he matter, as she found that her intended was untrue and was engaged to marry another. They had been acquainted but three or fonr days, yet in bin whisperings of the honeyed words o'! love he had told her the old, old ste'-eotyp*'d tale of his success in life as a gatherer of the current coin of the realm, etc., and she was happy.
