The play pictures Ireland and its people in a true and faithful manner. The company that will interpet the different characters in the play is a strong one, and managers, Rowland and Clifford's personal guarantee is given that it will be a first class performance.—Prices ‘25- 85 50-75 cents. School Suits AT WEINEELD’S HOLD-UPS. Hamilton L. Erupey was, at the point of a revolver, held op and robbed Sat urday nighffby two bad, bold robbers — so Ham says. According to Ham’s story he was returning home from the city early in the evening, and when he bad reached a lonely spot near the fair grounds he met two men. One of them drew a revolver and pointing it at him commanded him to throw up his hands. He responded with alacrity notwith statiding the fact that one arm is par alyzed. While he was covered with the gun the other knight of the road went through his pockets aud relieved him of his loose change— a little over $5. They then released him and Ham made tracks for home. Then his pipe went ont. This morning another hold-up was reported to the chief of police. Last evening C. W.

The highwayman then released him and he ran to his boarding place. When attempting call up the police by tele phone be found that the instrument was out of order, and too much fright ened to venture out, the matter re mained UDreported until this morning, and the hold-up man had plenty of time to escape.

It has, perhaps, seemed a strange thing to many of the lovers of good music in Wausau, that one of the world’s greatest artists should be living here and occasionally giving concerts in other cities, and yet never a concert in Wausau for the last two or three years. Some of the aforesaid lovers of music have ascertained the cause of this. Mr Reuter says that he quit giv ing concerts in Wausau Decause his last concerts here were so poorly pat ronized that he actually lost money on them. We suppose this is the shameful truth, ami that Mr. Renter, having the sensitiveness of a true artist, was averse to imposing himself upon us if we thought we did not want to hear him. Now we want to say that whatever may have been the patronage given to Mr. Reuter's concerts in Wausau he is greatly mistaken if he thinks the made lovers of Wausan do not appreciate him and feel proud of him. Within the last year he played a number at one of the entertainments furnished by the Tuesday Musical club, and. although the foreign talent that furnished the chief part of the program was in all re spects first class, none of the perform ers was greeted by that Wausaa audi ence with anything near as much ap plause as was given to oar own Reuter. And, of coarse, although exceptionally fine performers, alt of them, he de served the extra favor shown by his audience. We are glad, therefore, to learn that Mr. Reuter has been requested to give a concert here, and has promised to do so. The concert will be given in the opera booseon Thursday evening, Nov. 6th. Mr. Reuter will be assisted by a string quartette, in which he will play first violin, and an exceptionally good cello player from another city will play that part There will also be good vocalists to aid in making this the musical event of the season We trust the city of Wausau will give Mr Reuter such a bouse on that occasion that he will no longer have any reason to think he is less appreciated in his own city than in other cities. FOP DISTRICT ATTORNEY. It appears that the nominee named at the democratic convention next Sat urday for district attorney will be Fred. Gen rich, the present incumbent. The nomination of Mr. Geniicb, we be lieve, is equivalent to election—at least it should be. Without any desire to east any reflections on those gentlemen who have held that office in the past — and there were many of ability—we be lieve that we can truthfully say that Fred ha* been the man long needed in that ofiiee. Besides being ; mau of good legal ability he has that one qual ity which is required above others—a fearlessness to do as his conscience dic tates, —for as Josh Billings would say, “The crawfish iz an auimul to be dis pized.” Mr. Gen rich went into office two years ago, practically unknown in the legal world, but today, mainly through his attention to the duties of that ofiiee, Marathon county has gained a name throughout the state as being an unsafe place for criminals to harbor in. Since his inception into office there has been an even twenty sent to the state’s prison for various crimes, four teen of whom the evidence agaiust them was worked ;p so strong that they plead guilty rather than stand prosecution and receive longer sen tences, and these fourteen instances have saved the county a great expense in trials being waived. Two of the cases for murder, Frank Schwantes aud Jacob Schaumberger, the district at torney had to rely mainly on circum stantial evidence, yet he convicted them. He has not drawn on the county for a cent of extra expense in prosecut ing criminals. Furthermore, he has practically cleaned up all the old bills left over from previous administrations, that Marathon county lias held against other counties. Asa young man who is endeavoring, (and who has succeed ed) in giving Marathon county an hon est and able administration of the af fairs of his office, we believe he should be accorded the support of all voters, and returned with an overwhelming majority. When you get the right man in the right place, keep him there. CHARMING PARTY. Miss Foster entertained at the Club House on Wednesday evening in honor of Mrs. H. H.

Miss Bohrer went into the country last Friday afternoon to visit Miss Tap lin, who is located in the Kreutzer dis trict. She found the usual conditions which obtain in many schools of Mara thon county. The children are all from German homes and are constantly in need of someone who demands and in sists that they become more active along all lines, and especially in the use of the English language. Miss Tap lin's persistent efforts would be an example to many working under like conditions, and her work will surely ai g great good. The students arc all rejoiced over the arrival of the reference and reading books which were ordered by the board through the summer. Miss Anna Bradley, a graduate of 1900, who has completed two years’ suc cessful work as a teacher in the county, called last Thursday. She will rill a position near Edgar this year. The Literary society presented its first program on Friday afternoon. The miscellaneous exercises were iDt.-re-t --ing and well rendered. The debate upon the proposition that women should exercise their right of suffrage this fall was decided in favor of the affirmative.

Miss Heinrich will begin her work in Stettin some time in October. Miss Ella Christianson, formerly of Wausau, but now of Hawkins, Gates countv, returned to finish her course.

RITTER & DEUTSCH.jS^I PLEASANT RECEPTION. The Epworth League gave a very pleasant reception in the M. C. church last Friday evening for the Rev. and Mrs. F. A. Pease. Over 30fi invitations were issued and there were very few of the number who could not attend. Rev. Pease has been pastor of the M. E. church for two years and at the quarterly conference, there was an unanimous request made that he again be permitted to take charge of the church in this city, this was granted at the state conference recently held in Mil waukee and there was great rejoic ing amoug the members and friends of the church. The ladies had taken great pains to tastefully decorate the interior of the edifice for the occasion. All seats were removed from the centre of the room aud a number were placed in a parallel position with the, wall. These were covered with tapestry carpets and made comfortable by numerous tastily made cushions. The platform was covered with ferns, palms and potted plants, while back of these were ornamenta tions of bright colored autumn leaves. The walls also were adorned with sprigs of autumn foliage, evergeen, etc., w hile the chandeliers were covered with ever green. There were other decorations, very numerous, and the whole pre sented a very entrancing view to the eye, and one of great credit to the taste ful t'aucy of those who had charge'of the work. * The evening was spent in greeting Rev. and Mrs. Pease and during the time a musical program was carried out in which Mrs. Geo. Hart, Miss Lulu Janes and Miss Evelyn McCormick and E. M. James took part. Light refreshments were served by the young ladies or the League. National German American Bank.

Slave” plays at the Grand Opera House tonight comes heralded as odc of the best scenic productions in the northwest. The company ip beaded by that well known romantic actor, Mr. Clarance Bennett, who has won volumes of praise from the press of Michigan and Wisconsin this season. In speaking of the performance re cently, The Daily Mining Journal of Marquette says, “Mr. Bennett, in thei title role proved to be always the right man in the right place and did just the right thing to please his audiences.” He is said to be an actor of quiet methods, and snows unmistakeably the careful training he received while a member of Edwin Booth's company in the palmy days of the drama. Mr. Bennett is a man of refinement percept ion and finesse; a college graduate aDd the son of a minister. His performance of Agcila, the slave, is noticeable for the artistic atmosphere that pervades it. and which seems to infuse the entire supporting company, among whom may be noticed such well known play ers as Miss Margaret Neville, late of Mac Le-an and Tyler's Cos; Miss Helen riske, Mr, Stanley Johns; Miss Edna Marshall and others. From -what our exchanges have to say of the performance we feel safe in recommending it as one of the best that Manager CoDe has on bis books for the present season. They were, greeted by a packed house in Rhine lander last night, a town which U no toriously bad for traveling companies. The forty foot macadamizing on Jef ferson and Fourth streets will cost the property holders about 4Tc a running foot.
