A Very Gratifying Result of Many Weeks’ Diligent Work — Opera House Crowded—Amateurs do Themselves Proud. For about six weeks past the musical talent of bur city has beeo preparing to give “The Bohemian Girl,” under he direction of Mr. Geo. Andrews, late cf the Andrews’ Opera company, asr under the auspices of the Tuesday Musical club, the proceeds therefrom to be applied upon the club’s new Steinway Grand. The first per formance was given last evening and the opera house was crowded f om orchestral chairs to the gallery; it was a critical audience, out in fashion’s finest raiment; of those who took part it can truly be said that they “covered themselves with glory,” giving an artis tic and finished entertairfhieut. They were assisted by one professional, Thomas Abercrombie, of Minneapolis, a young man of pleasing appearance and easy stage manners ana the pos sessor of virile and pleasing tenor voice. Mr. Andrews, who directed the opera, is a. mao of splendid musical ability, and the success of the entertainment was in a great measure due to him. The audience was entirely carried away with the performance aud showed marked appreeiatioh from the opening to the closing chorus, and the perform ers deserved every bit of applause they received, and too much cannot be writ ten in praise of their efforts. The following is the CAST: Arline, daughter of the Count Miss Lula Janes Thaddeus, an exiled Polish officer Mr. Thomas Abercrombie Devilshoof, leader of Gypsy band Mr. J. W. Coates Count of Arnbeim, Governor of Pres burg Mr. Fred W. Kickbusch, Jr. Queen of the Gypsies Mrs. J. W. Coates Florestein, nephew of the Count Mr. Ben Tiilson Buda, attendant of Arline Miss Matie Mitchell Captain of the Guards Mr. H. C. Wheeler Miss Janes scored a success aud ad ded to her already well earned laurels, and her fine soprano voice was greatly admired, and especially in. “I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls,” did she win the hearty applause of her listeners. J W. Coates was a surprise to his friends; while it was known that he was the possessor of a bass voice of more than ordinary power, they were not prepared to see one so easy in stage manners, and his excelled interpreta tion of the part which he personated clearly won for him the applause and appreciation of the audience. The difficult role of “Count of Arn heim” was admirably tilled by Fred. W. Kickbusch, Jr. He was in excellent form and charmed all his listeners with his superb voice. His make-up and acting were especially fine and he dis played ability in the latter respect. He made a distinet success and certainiy deserved the generous applause given him. Mrs. J. W. Coates made aD ideal “Queen of the Gypsies.” Her extensive experience made it possible for her to give the part that interpretation ueces sary for complete success. Mrs. Coates is counted among Wausau’s most tal ented vocalists, aud the role personated gave ample opportunity to display her full rich voice, aud her musical appre hension and fine execution was a fea ture of the opera which pleased all. Miss Mitchell and Messrs. Tiilson and Wheeler carried out the parts assigned them with great credit to themselves, WIDELY PUBLISHED. The other day Rev. Frank A. Pease receieved “The Referee” a Sunday paper published in London, in which was the following marked item : “In the State of Wisconsin there is a town called Wausau. In it there is a paper named the Pilot. Iu the latter appears the following paragraph: At the First Methodist church next Sunday evening the Rev. Frank Pease will speak on the subject,'Hell : What is it? Who gets there ?’ Seats free. A cordial invitation to all.” On the margin was written: “Not started for that destination. Seat not desired.” It seems that a sister of Mrs. Pease is traveling in Europe, saw the item, marked and sent it as above stated. The item seems to have been one that caught the eye and tickled the faucy of many as it was published and com mented upon by :i large number of the ieading journals of this country. INTERESTING EVENT. Arrangements have been made for a field meet to be held in our city May 2nd between our High School and its ready rivals from Grand Rapids An invitation Ills also been extended to the Stevens Point school to partici pate, tvhich probably will be accepted It promises to be an exceedingly inter esting contest as the teams are equally matched and each team is determined to win, if there is any possible way. Out* boys are working with the utmost zeal and earnestness, knowing that their best efforts are necessary to win the victory. The tickets are already on sale, the price being 25 cents for adults and 15 cents for students in all the, schools. The boys declare that the ex penses are unusually heavy this year, and desire that all who are interested in their welfare would give them their hearty support and co-operation.

The chorus, for a home talent, we. be lieve, could not have been excelled in any city the size of Wausau in the country, and it was composed of many of the best vocalists of our city, as a glance over tbe names will testify, viz: CHORUS. Soprano Alto. Mesdames. Mesdames. George Andrews, D. T. Jones, M.H. Duncan, Misses. Geo. Hart Emma Collins, E. P Holmes. Mary Harg r. F W. Kickbusch, jr. Mattie Mitchell, Misses. Edna Reed.

The chorus is deserving of great praise for the excellent manner in which it did its work and it showed careful training. This article wou’d certainly be incomplete without ‘he mention of Miss Kate Williamson who acted in the capacity of accompanist; she did her work so well and faultlessly that it inspired confidence in all who took part Good singing, under the super vision of an able director, an ex cellent accompanist, beautiful costumes, and stage settings that were in every way appropriate, combined to make the first performance of the Bohemian Girl last evening, a grand success. The opera will be given again this evening, and to make the venture a financia l suc cess, such as the members of the Tues day Musical club had hoped, the opera house should agaiu be filled and tbe Pilot urges everybody to a teud and help along the good cause. For those who did not attend, we give a brief synopsis of the opera: SYNOPSIS. Act I—Scene is laid in Austria-Count Am heim and retainers prepare for chase.

Thaddeus relates his history and is received by the count. The queen induces a member of the tribe to tire at Thaddeus. but Devilshoof "saves his life. The queen is killed. A PAINFUL EXPERIENCE. Fred Burt, the popular Scott street tonsorial artist, received a shaking up last Wednesday that he will remember for a long time. Fred had purchased a cow from a farmer who brought in the animal, and as he had sustained the fracture of a leg a few months ago, he remarked that lie was afraid on that account to take the cow from the wagon and try to handle her in a strt.nge place. Fred pulled his coat and raid that he never had seen a cow yet that he could not handle and told the farmo to trot her out. Well, that bovine diun’t do a thing to Fred. No sooner Lad he gotten a firm grip on the rope than the cow made three or four lightning jerks of het* head and Fred brougb* up., broadside, against the wood pile, b.uHy blunting the sharp edges of some of the wood. He hung on to the rope however, with characteristic grit, and was given a lively ride around the yard on the bosom of his biled shirt aud collided with tbe fence. The farmer during the time hobbled about and managed to get hold of the rope just as the cow was getting ready to throw Fred over into the middle of town aud between them both the animal was safely stabled. Fred has worn a pain on his face ever since which will take a good deal of patience and arnica to overcome. DRINK PURE WATER. A. B Wheeler & Son have in stock a filter that filters.

Paints ranging in price from 60c to $1.30 per gallon— nearly as cheap as water —sold at this sale. They arc not trashy stuff but first class goods. A case is being tried in Justice Clarke’s court this afternoon in which ('has. Passhel is complainant and Chas. Kiehl defendant. A short time ago the defendant sold to John Martin, who died Wednesday, a piece of laud sit uated on Eighth Aver Martin, just previous to his late illness and death, sold the land to Pashell apd after this trade had been made, so it is alleged, Kiehl went on the property and removed all the fruit trees therefrom, claiming that he did not sell these with the hvb.T lhe ease is being tried before a jury. There is a move on foot at Stevens Point, among its citizens, to builtl an independent telephone system, on a plan similar to that of the Wausau Tele phone company. The promoter is A. W. Bryant, who put in the Grand Rapids and Rhinelander systems, both of which at e working very successfully. There certainly can be no mistake made if the company is gotten up ac cording to the Wausau plau. The peo ple of Merrill put in a system and Wau sau and that city joined hands and con nected the two cities with a long distance line, which yields a splendid revenue and there is no reason why Wausau and Stevens Point should uot do the same thing. The Ladies’ Literary Club held its annual meetiug yesterday afternoon and elected the following officers for the ensuing year: President —Mrs. C. C. Yawkey. Vice-President—Mrs. C. S Curtis. Rec.

Jones, tooK the occasion to say a few words to the ladies present, thanking them for the kindness they had shown her the past year aud the great pleasure it had been to her to be their presiding officer A vi>* of thanks was tendered the outgoing officers. Arthur and Anlin Thompson, the two boys who robbed a store of fifty pounds of dynamite a week ago, were hrujight before Judge Silverthorn on Wednes day afternoon and plead guilty. When questioned as to which institution they would rather go to, the reformatory or the state prison, they chose the latter for the reason that ifvsent to the re formatory they would "have to remain until they were of agm whereas if sent to the latter they weWmade to under stand that the sentence would be short. The judge accordingly gave them some good advice relative to the strength and power of the state of Wisconsin in en forcing its laws, and then sentenced each to serve one year ut hard labor in Waupun prison. | Badger Laundry \ \ ' $ # Cor. 4th and Washington Sts. #J $ WILL RETURN YOUR LINEN PROPERLY $ $ LAUNDERED. $ f Elite 1 H when in .need of a hat. §= A full and complete line of % Ladies, Misses and Children’s § b 3 E Hats, Ladies Bonnets, etc. 1 ~~—" : 11 2= New line of Street j u> r :I5 Si latest and most exeldsi t stylw. | DAINTY CHILDREN’S HATS: % £: AT ALL PRICES. : =| ,™ THIRD STREET COUNCIL MEETING, At a special meeting of the council 'ield Thursday evening Dan Danielson was granted a plumber’s license. John Mohr’s claim of s‘.*oo for injuries sustained in falling on an icy side walk was disallowed. The bids of ,F VV. Krause ($355) and Aug. Klosterman ($300) for building a brick foundation for the new boiler at the pumping station were rejected .be cause they were too high. The board of public works was instructed to do the work. A letter was read from the village i clerk at Mosinee in which the latter! thanked the city for the assistance offered at the time of the tire at Mosinee some weeks ago. A cheek for sls was enclosed. The work of planting trees and sow ing grass seed about the grounds of the pumping station was given to the board of public works. Asa committee to select a location for the new bridge to be built across the river in the lower end of town M cssrs. Wolf, Muenchow and Flatter were appointed. The report of the fire committee was j read recommending that an engine house be built on the city’s property on Bridge street. The report was adopted a:.;! the committee authorized to secure plans and specifications. The cost of building and equipment, it is thought, will he about $5,500 while $3,100 will be required annually to maintain it. As truant officer the poor commis sioner, Frank Schneider, was elected to serve two months, his salary for such serv ices being fixed at sls per month. The report of the special committee appointed to make an investigation of the tinan. ial management of tic- last administration made its report which merely consisted of a mass of figures, not stating whether the books were found correct or not.
