Hobson, of Merri mac fame, has resigned from the navy on account of the bad condition of his eyes. A full pardon has been given to Cole Younger and he has returned to his old home in Missouri. Kikjak W. V’ i all, for many years proprietor of the Oshkosh Times, died recently of cancer of the throat. Mr. Viall was well known thoughout the state. Joe M. Chapple, of Washington, 1). C., well known in Wisconsin, espec ially among newspaper men, is the pos sessor of the pen which President Roosevelt used in signing the coal bill Burt Williams, editor of the Ashland Daily News, mayor of Ashland, and candidate on the democratic ticket for coug/ess from this district last fall, has announced his intention of getting married. The young lady of his choice is Miss Maud Evelyn Brower, and the ceremony will take place Feb. 24th. The subjects of character sketches in the February Review of Reviews are Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer, the former president of Wellesley College and for many years an active leader in philan thropic and intellectual movements, whose career is reviewed by Mr. George Perry Morris, and the Hon. Abram S Hewitt, New York’s greatest citizen, of whom Edward M Shepard writes a discriminating estimate. According to statistics Wisconsin’s militia force consists of 2 60S enlisted r en ami 207 commissioned officers aud the state can provide 372,152 men that are tit for military duty. According to the new law these statistics mast he furnished the govern men , and the militia is now practically a reserve force of the regular army. The statistics of the different states .•Lost* that the United States has over 10,000,000 men that are available for military service, outside of the militia and regular mili tary organizations.

There is one flaw to the bill, however, it should have included woodracks, and then the bless ings aceruiog from its passage would be manifold. TRUST PRICES AT HOME AND ABROAD. Every reader of newspapers knows that for many years past it has been claimed by democrats that many tariff favored manufacturers sell their goods in Europe at much smaller prices than they charge their own country men for the same goods. This was denied by the republicans, and the manufacturers ha(j devised a system of price lists and discounts which made it easy lor them to conceal the truth.

Sixty-six different trade* are more or less dependant upon borax and the 5 cents a pound excess price which the borax trust charges American con sumers (tariff on—borax) amounts to 51,250 000 per year. The extra price charged to American consumers, by “The L'uited States Steel Corporation,” over and above its prices to foreign for the same arti cles amount in one year to $72,600,000. The trusts do not sell their goods <broad without a fair profit.

At present they are allowed to be killed during the open season. While the Canadian northwest is at taeting hundreds of settlers from this and other sections there yet remain thousands of acres of good agrieultral lands in northern Wisconsin and Min nesota, nearer home and nearer market The railroads and the lumber companies own more than three million acres of cut over lauds iu northern Wisconsin alone. Very much of this land is good farming land and can be had at from $2.50 to $lO per acre. Experiments r made b3 r the agricultural department of the' Wisconsin state university have proven that the soils of the various couuties that are now but sparsely settled are apable of producing good crops. FURNISH AMUSEMENT. That the lumbermen of Northern Michigan have adopted novel means for holding employes iu their camps this winter is illustrated.by the follow ing dispatch from Houghton : “Meu to work in the woods have been so scarce this winter that it has been necessary for the loggers to pay the highest wages prevailing in many years and to furnish a table at the camps that would do honor to first class hotels ju the large cities. Even then it has been difficult to keep full forces. At some camps novel forms of ar> use nent have been introduced in order to influence the men to remain. Music boxes and phonographs have been installed at several, and in one camp a piano has been furnished, together with a pianist and a vocalist. Another company sup plies its camps with plenty of reading matter, both in daily papers and* peri odicals, of which the men have free use as soon as their work is completed foi the day and on Sundays.” RIFLE SCORES.

P M Talking about big trees; what’s the matter with Marathon county ? It's all right. A short time ago Adam Hoffman, of the town of Rib Falls, cut a pine tree what is known as a “school ma’am," that was huge. The trunk divided about four feet from the ground anti the two branches made 15 logs, two of which were not marketable. The other 18 logs sealed 5.800 feet, and Mr. Hoff man received *■Bs cash for them. Now] comes a story front (.’has. E Guenther, j of Knowlton. who cut a lange pine tyee. the 10-foot butt log scaling 1.402 feet; 1 and another from Judge Barrett, who | sold a piece of land last spring, on which was a monster pine “school ma.am.” A few weeks ago the owner cut it and the butt log, 12 feet long, scaled 1.414 feet. The tree contained 22 logs, which have net been sealed, but we will give the figures when the full returns are in,—Edgar Press. I have used Chanderlain’s Cough Remedy for a number of years and have no hesitancy in saying that it is the best remedy for coughs, colds and croup 1 have ever used iu my family.

The matter of organizing a branch of the Sons of Veterans in this city has i apparently fell through for the present. Those who should be interested in the. matter have failed to respond to the efforts of the old soldiers to make such organization. was only by offering large reward* through an advertisement in the New York World that the Democratic Con gressional committee has been able to obtain authentic information, en the subject, but by this means has got the facts as to a list of fifty-one articles, which list is published in the Free Trade Almanac for 1903. The following are samples: high that foreign manufactures ar*s not sent here to complete with the trusts It is plain, therefore, that the borax trust, and the steel trust, besides mak ing a fair profit out of the Aniericau people, also are enabled to get from us $1,250,000 and $72,600,000, respectively per year over and above a fair profit And that is what i9 meant by a “robber tariff." Is there any man so obtuse that he can not see and understand that the name “robber tariff” is cor rect, appropriate, and by no means too stroßgr The name tells the plain truth. E. A. Goodrich lost his dog, Jack, this morning, the dog getting on the tracks of the Northwestern R’y. Cos. in the vicinity of the W isconsin Box and Lb’r. Co.’s plant and was struck by a passing locomotive and instantly killed. He was a neighborhood pet. The Mendelsshon Quartette Cos. gave the fifth entertainment of the Y. M. C. A. course in this city, last Saturday evening and it was the equal of any thing that had been given. The quar tette was especially tine and it was repeatedly recalled. Helen Faye, so prano, and accompanist gave excellent satisfaction. It remained for Miss Mar guerite Smith to furnish the greatest treat of the evening; as a delineator of child character, she is the very best ever heard in this city. All in all it was a delightful evening’s entertainment. The last of the scries will be on March 17th, lecture t j Ex-Gov. Bob Taylor, of Tennessee. Yesterday, just before the noon hour, | Louis Schmieden’s son, Arnold, of the | town of Maine, was driving across the Wisconsin river with a load of rock, the same was to be delivered to the W ausau Paper Mills company, at Brokaw. When nearibf; the east shore the team and load bre te through thp ice, in about six feet of water. Luckily there was no current at that point and the boy managed to keep the horses’ heads above water until help arrived from the mills. The horses were got ten out after twenty minutes of hard labor. The sleicrh was gotten out later in the day. It was a close call. Speaking of anew line of railroad to he built leading out of this county the Stevens Point Gazette says. The line, which is now being sureyed, will be built by the Norl h-Western company and will run south from Eldron, in the southeastern part of Marathon county, to Rosholt The main object of the extension is to get the business of the F-nsnolt saw mill, the same as when the line, known as the Ingersoll log ging road, was built from Eland Junction to Eldron, several years ago. Eventually, however, it may be ex tended south through Portage county, connecting with its line at Wild Rose or some other point. The Training school had partly ar ranged for a course of six lectures to be delivered in the high school auditorium on Thursdays of each week, the same to be given by Dr. J H Raymond, of -4he Chicago university, but owing to the Crary lectures coming the week follow ing the first number^ the idea has been abandoned. The action is regretted, but was made necessary. Dr. Ray mond's talks were to have been on European cities and the conditions they present, the cities of London, Paris St. Petersberg, Vienna, Berlin and Con stantinople having been selected. He has traveled extensively and is said to be a brilliant speaker. Lamar Scxmith is this winter operat ing three camps on the Eau Claire river and is banking an immense amount of logs. One camp hauls to the high roll way near the old Kelly mill, another to a landing a few miles up the river, while another banks its logs near the dells. It has been said and often repeated that all the piae has been cut in this county, but strange to say the work being done at two of these camps is a contradiction to this claim, for they are cutting nearly all pine and the body is so large that some will be left over for at least two winters more. 1> flieulty has been experienced nearly all winter in seenrin?, labor, and just at present sawyers are badly needed. One of the foremen was in town yesterday endeavoring to hire men, bnt could secure none. Morroco (111.) Courier. When you r port yourself as being on the sick list a< late in the week as Thursday or Friday morning, you should, in justice to the editor, remain sick at least nnti ? tic papers are in the post office. It is t rribie embarassing to say that Xr. or Mrs. Featheringill is dangerously sick as we go to press and then, while l tgging the papers to the post office, meet the said party on the street look ing quite cheerful and with every indi cation of possessing a brand of health, which under a fair treatment, might be made to lap OTer, into the nest century. It is such little inaccuracies as the above that eventually shatters a news paper’s reputation for truth and veracity. OASTORIA. The Christian Endeavor society of the Presbyterian church will give a valentine social at the church parlors on Saturday evening. The last Masonic party of the series, and which will be a dancing party,is to take place on Friday evening next, February I3ih.

S Curtis at Fenwood. The trustees of the Marathon County Insane asylum will hold a meeting Friday next iu conjunction with the county board poor committee. At thij meeting it is possible that the official announcement will be made of the gentleman who is to succeed Mr Head as superintendent of the asylum. We learn that the man has already been chosen and is a gentleman of five years’ experience in that kind of work and fully qualified for the position. A special meeting of Cutler Post will be held Saturdayeyening. The matter of petitioning the legislature to take the supervision of the Waupaca Soldiers’ Home away from the state board of control, may come up for con sideration but it is hardly probablejthat such a petition will be made by the local Post. Such petitions are being sent in by different Posts throughout the state but the concensus of opinion of the local G. A. R. men is “Let well enough alone.” Eugene Wirth, of the town of Kronen wetter, lost a cow last Wednes day. The cow went down to the mill-pond to get a drink front the water hole cut in the ice, which was a large one, and while drinking, her feet slipped and she was thrown head foremost into the hole, where she remained until discovered about an hour later. She was rescued from her cola bath, but having become so chilled by the ice waters that soon after rescue she passed to the bovine kingdom.— Mosinee Times. PERSONALS. —W. G.

The barbers of the city are contem plating calling a meeting shortly to take action iu regard to closing up the Beilis House shop on Sunday—if they can find a way to do so. They are of the opinion that unless such action is soon taken they vill all he fol S-ed to open their shops io the public on Sun day mornings, as was formerly the custom. They entered into an agree ment some years ago not to do any more ‘‘scraping” on the Sabbath, and the agreement has been religiously lived up to. While at least a part of the public finds it convenient to avoid the rush incident to Saturday night shaving by having their whiskers clipped on Sunday morning, the bal ance are of the opinion that the hard working barbers are entitled t , have to themselves, and ci course opinions differ on every subject, We understand that the barbers are backed in the movement^ by the clei ks, who also look upon the Sunday opening with disfavor.
