good. He presented some excellent
views of the coronation containing
striking likenesses of the participants.
His descriptive work was good and
the audience had little difficulty in
imagining the show directly before it.

Mirs Eunice Odette, aged nineteen,
committed suicide Friday morning at
the Central hotel by taking a dose of
strychnine. Shortly after eight o’clock
she came down stairs from her room
and asked the lady of the house for a
teaspoon, and securing the spoon she
went into the dining room, where she
partook of a very light breakfast an and
then went up to her room. Shortly
after the domestics of the house were
summoned to her room by screams for
help and when they entered, the girl
fell backward on the bed and her limbs
began to stiffen, and before medical
assistance could be summoned she was
dead. The girl’s home is in the town
of Weston but for a few weeks past she
had been in the employ of Dr. and
Mrs. W. C. Dickens. A few days ago
she left the employ of the Dickens fam
ily and up to the time of her death had
been about town with another girl,
Gertrude Hillsberg. On Thursday
afternoon they were out riding with a
young man. Late in the afternoon she
engaged a room at the Central House
and again joined her friend and to
gether they went to the Delmonico
restaurant where they had supper.
Previous, however, to their going out
riding the girls called at the drug store
on the west side and Miss Odette asked
for ten cents worth of strychnine, stat
ing that she wanted it for her mother,
who was going to use it for the pur
pose of killing rats with which her
home was infested. She was told that
strychnine was not sold in such quanti
ties and was advised to use Rough on
Rats, but this advice she declined and
purchased a one drachm bottle for
fifty cents. Here she gave the name
of-Giace Hazletou, which was entered
upon the poison register. She .did not
inform her friend of her intentions,
but probably secreted the bottle in her
room until she would be alone.
After her death two letters were
found on a dresser in the room ad
dressed to a young man. They were
lengthy and she had evidently spent
much of the night in writing them.
From the contents of these letters it
was noted that the girl was evidently
much enamored with this young man,
and stated she had always been true to
him and would continue so even uuto
death. To her friend she had told
of this love affair, said she had been
engaged to the young man and then
jilted, and wept and appeared much
worked up over the affair. It is to
this fact that a cause has been assigned
for her rash act.
After the coroner bad been sum
moned he empanelled a jury of the
following gentlemen: F. L. Hudson,
C. J. Wintou, E. V. Speer, C. B. Mayer,
W. Sehoenebeig and E. M. James.
They went to the hotel viewed the re
mains and then began the taking of
testimony. The first witness was Miss
Hillsburg who told a story of her re
lations with the Odette girl substantially
as given above.
An adjournment was then taken to
Monday 10 allow an antopsy to be made
on th remains.
At ten o’clock Mnday morning the
inquisition was again taken up and
witnesses examined. Miss Hillsberg
again repeated her story of her relations
with the girl and Fred Behnke told
of taking the girls out riding on the
afternoon previous and of their move
ments. Mrs. Auderes related the facts
of the girl’s coming to her house, and
of her actions while there, and a domes
tic of the house, Miss Reichl, told her
story of the girl asking for the spoon,
of her eating breakfast and of finding
her in the room afterward. Clarence
Champagne, the young man with whom
deceased had been , keeping company,
was called, but proved a poor witness.
In the first place he is sadly lacking in
knowledge of the meaning of words in
the English language, and when ques
tions were propounded to him in the
plainest of words he found difficulty in
gra a plng their meaning. A further fact,
which he admitted at the close of the
examination, was that all through such
he endeavored to evade the correct
answers to questions. He denied that
he had been unduely intimate with the
girl ami yet admitted that he had ad
vised her to go to a physician, for rea
sons he did not wish to be made known,
at first claiming that the girl had in
jured herself iu lifting a sauerkraut
barrel. Dr. Rosenberry read a record
of his investigations in making an au
topsy which showed very little trace of
strychnine in the stomach. There was
some in the throat, however, which was
proven by a chemical test. He also
found complications in some of the or
gans, some recent and some long stand
In the questioning of some of the wit
nesses the facts were brought out that
in some individuals and in some places
in this town a state of moral depravity
exists that should be investigated and
it was these facts which caused the
jurymen to incorporate a clause into
their verdict calling attention to the
matter. The case was given to the jury
at noon and the following verdict
rendered :

Odette on the 21st day of Nov., 1902, did
with the intention to end her life, ad

Friday afternoon, four boys, Albert
Knorr, August Hoff, Otto Jueres and
Otto Habe< k, went out hunting rabbits
west of the city and the ending was a
sad and fatal one to one ©f the party.
They wore coming towards town late
in the afternoon and when in a clamp
of bushes near Aug. Deichsel’s farm a
rabbit passed the party. Hoff raised
bis guu and aiming at the animal pulled
the trigger but the piece failed to ex
plode. Immediately thereafter Albert
Knorr, who was standing near by at
the time, stepped in front of Hoff, and
when he was within direct raDge of the
gun, an explosion followed and Knorr,
exclaiming. “August, you have killed
me,” fell to the ground with blood
gushing from him. The charge had en
tered his left side below the arm pit
The other boys picked up their
pounded companion and carried him
to the wagon road but he died before
they had reached there. One of the
boys ran to town to Frank Hanke’s
place on Elm street and there secured
a horse and wagon and drove back to
the scene of the accident and Knorr’s
body was placed in the vehicle and
brought to the home of his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Wm. Knorr, who reside on
Elm street. Hoff came over town and
to the district attorney told the story of
the accident. At once Mr. Genrichand
Coroner Dickens repaired to the scene
of the accident and gained what in
formation they could of the details.
Next morning the coroner empanelled
as a jury, Robt. Flisch, Julius Brechlin,
Andrew Oleson, F. A. Sampsen, S.
Sawyer and Just Justeson. The evi
dence given by the boys established in
the minds of the jurymen that the kill
ing was purely accidental, and they so
returned a verdict.
Deceased was sixteen years of age
and besides his parents loaves several
brothers to mourn his death. Funeral
was held Sunday afternoon from the
German Reformed church, Rev Fuenf
stick officiating.
Sunday evening while Frank Gen
rich, an employ of thej Novelty Cos.,
was on his way homeward he met
two strangers at the Third Ave. cross
ing of the tannery switch on the west
side, who appeared to be in an intoxi
cated condition. Upon his approach
one the two, a short man, caught
bold of Genrich and told him to hand
over his valuables, and to be in a hurry
about it, too. Genrich did not care to
part from his money, and there
fore knocked the short man down,
and as he did so the larger man caught
him around the neck from the reaiS
The fello4v made an effort to get his
victim’s watch, and in the struggle it
was torn from his pocket and fell on
the ground and evidently escaped the
attention of the footpads, for it was
found yesterday morning. As scon as
Genrich had liberated himself from lue
larger man he ran down the street and
summoned help and went back to the
the scene but the hold-up men had
There was a time when people did
foolish things—blew out the gas, bought
gold bricks, prize packages and what
not. There was a time when people
expected something for nothing and
got it—in the place where the body con
nects with the head. There was a time
when oeople expected to get up a nice
Thanksgiving dinner with cheap groc
eries purchased at a cheap grocery
store, where everything had the appear
ance of cheapness, even to the taste of
the articles. But that day has passed.
They are now buying of a reliable
merchant by the name of Max E.
Boehm, wno sells nothing but reliable
goods at reliable prices—not too high,
but just right. If you are not already
a patron, just drop into either of his
stores before Thanksgiving and inspect
his oysters, fresh from Chesapeake Bay,
celery from Kalamazoo, Mich., New
Jersey cranberries, mince meat lit for
a king, spices for seasoning your tur
key and dressing, in fact everything
kept in a first class grocery. Buy some,
take them home, have the superintend
ent of your culinary department pre
pare them for the table and joy will
reign supreme in your household. Two

Senator Dolliver, of lowa, will.appear
in this city for a lecture on Wednesday
evening, Nov. 26, under the auspices of
theY. M. C. A. The Wisconsin State
Journal in speaking of his lecture de
livered in Madison says: “His delivery
is impressive—passionate when he
cares to rise to chat high pitch; his rhe
toric is polished and artinlc, sentence
after sentence flowing from his tongue
with such ease, and fluency that the
perfection of their structure was the
constant surprise of his auditors.” In
speaking of his Memorial Day speech
in New York City a promiment paper
said; ‘‘The young orator had a very
difficult place to till. His predecessors
apnn that platform on similar occasions
had been such men as Chauncey Depew
and Robert G. Ingersoll, princes of
oratory and masters of the art of beau
tiful and persuasive address. To have
been chosen to follow them was a great
compliment; to have sustained himself
so well under those circumstances was
the test and triumph of Mr. Dolliver's
The editor of the Pilot acknowledges
with thank', the receipt of a box of
apples from W. H. Bissell, of Arbor
Vitae, which are a little the finest that
K has been his privilege to sample for
many a day. They are a large red
apple, firm but very tender and have
an exquisite flavor. Mr. Bissel is the
possessor of a ranch near Boise, Idaho,
on which he started an apple orchard
some six years ago, and last week be
received his first car load, which means
that tbe trees have commenced to bear
in plenty.
“It whistled itself.” That was the
little boy's excuse when he accidentally
whistled in school. Just so with Max

Undersheriff Chellis last Wednesday
arrested John Rogushka and Laura
Kostusch at Marshfield and brought
them to Wausau and lodged them in
the county jail. Both are residents
of the town of Eldron and were on
their way to St. Paul when they were
in.ercepted, the former to answer, a
criminal charge the latter being a wit
ness. The man, who is an official iu
his home town, has a wife and son,
but he has not lived with the former
fora year past. The girl, who is fif
teen years of age, is practically an
orphan, as her mother is dead and the
present whereabouts of her father
are unknown. She was residing with
relatives when she met Rogushka
and a mutual friendship sprang up be
tween them. The fellow, by bis per
suasiveness of tongue, induced the girl
to leave with him, and on Tuesday
evening last they purchased tickets at
Hatley for St. Paul. That same day
residents of the town of Eldron came
to Wausau and swore out warrants for
their arrest, and the uudersheriff
started after them and overtook the
couple at Marshfield. The charge
against Rogushka, though couched in
different language, is kidnaping.

In a recent issue we an account
of the death of Mrs. Minnie Marston
living on Washington Ave., in John
son’s addition, who died of diptheria.
This week we are called upon to chron
icle the deaths of two other members
of the same family. After their
mother’s death, two of the live children
were taken ill with the disease, one of
the daughters having been sick and re
covered before her mother w as stricken.
The latest victims were Elvira, aged
thirteen years and Freddie, the only son
aged nearly three years. Elvira had
apparently nearly recovered when on
Saturday she was suddenly taken worse
and expired. The boy’s case was a
bad one and it was quite apparent (hat
lie could not survive, and on Sunday
he also succumbed. The girl was bur
ied Sunday morning at 11 o’clock and
the boy at 4 in the afternoon the boy’s
body WM not yet cold when interment*
took place but it was thought better to
bury him soon to protect the other]
members of the family.
The case is a sad one to relate. Mr.
Marston is a hard working man and
had saved his money for years that he
might secure a home where he could be
surrounded by happiness peace and
contentment. He recently built a
house in the lower end of town and
moved into it and everything looked
bright for the future, when the grim
destroyer entered that home and robbed
him of his life partner and two of his
little ones. What the future will bring
forth of course cannot be foretold.
There may be another visitation of the
reaper in the same form, and at best
the man has been robbed of his consort
and the remaining children of a pro
tecting parent. *
The fifth annual bazaar and enter
tainment of St. Elizabeth’s Aid society
was held last Thursday and proved a
phenomenal success, financially and
otherwise. T' e fair was held during
the day at Fi jteraity hall and the ladies
were fortunate in disposing of the
greater part of their wares, all of which
were useful as well as tastily made
articles. In the evening an entertain,
ment was given at the opera house and
that place was filled to overflof-ing
with spectators. We cannot go into
details in giving an account of the ren
dition of the program on account ut its
lengthiness, suffice to say, however,
that it was exceptionally well presented
and made a deep impression on the
audience considering the length of time
spent in rehearsals. In respect to a
visitor, however, we will mention the
number of Miss Gross, of Stevens Point
who sang two pieces, one being an en
core. Miss Gross is a graduate of the
Chicago Musical college and has a
voice of exquisite sweetness, with
powers of great range. She manifested
a cultivation of her talents that betok
ened ds?p study and her appearance
brought forth the approval and ap
pianse of the audience. Miss Gross is a
niece of Henry Gross of this city, and
while here was a guest at the borne of
the latter.
