There was a lively game of base ball at Werle’s Park last Saturday. Fifteen traveling men picked up three men aud they all went to the grounds chose sides and there was lots of fun for several hours.

Judge Silverthorn, having finished his business in Milwaukee, started for Wausau Saturday afternoon. “I like Milwaukee,” he said, when leaving, “and if it were not that I live in Wau sau, would come here to reside.

Then the people have often honored me with their suffrages until I feel that Mara thon county is really the best town on earth, and while I like Milwaukee, I really love Wausau.”—Milwaukee Sen tinel. Asa result of a fall from a load of hay, Anton Benyak, of Schofield, a man of seventy-eight years, died Wednesday at his home. He was assisting in hauling the hay from a plot of land near Schofield one day the fore part of last week, when he fell off the load and broke one of his ribs, the broken bones piercing a lung. Two physicians were called in to attend the injured man, but on account of his advanced years bis recovery was impossible. Mrs. Richard Hertzel of this city, is a daugh ter of Mr. Benyak and attended him in his last illness. Leigh Smith, sent to the reform school over a year ago for burglarizing the Osswald bakery shop and other places, and later paroled, was returned to that institution today, one of the officials, H. R. Rawson, coming after him. Circus day Smith and a compan ion, it is said, broke into the United States Leather Co.’s office and extracted from the till about $lB in money. The affair was kept as quiet as possible and a settlement was arrauged with the boys’ parents. Since then he has been suspected of other thefts and so com plaint was made to the industrial school authorities, which resulted in his being returned.

John Adams, a half breed Indian, was brought over from Edgar yesi“r day to serve a sentence of ninety days in the county jail. His arrest is due to a complaint made by Mrs. Wissman, who lives near Fenwood, who alleges that on July 15th, while she and her daughter were passing along a high way Adams shot at them with a rifle. The evidence was not sufficient to prosecute him on the charge of attempt ing murder and so he was tried for a minor offense. He bears a bad reputa tion, so his neighbors say, his Indian blood breaking out occasionally. He is a veteran of the Philippine war and carries a fragment of shell in one of his feet received in an engagement. A few weeks ago a valuable dog of Henry McCrossen became afflicted with the rabies aud before he could be caught and disposed of, lie bit a great many dogs, among others was a highly prized and well trained huntingdogbe longing to Neal Brown. This dog also commenced to show signs of the disease last Friday, and on Saturday it was necessary to shoot him. Mr. Brown watched the symptoms very carefully and during the time studied up on the disease and says there was no getting around the fact that it was a genuine case of the rabies. He has another dog fully as valuable, which lie fears has been innoculated and he will have the animal shot. Under the existing conditions there is no question but that Wausau has the best dog law that could have possibly been passed. Y. M. C. A. NOTES. The management of the Association wish to publicly thank those who enter tained the uewsboys while in the city. Prof. Coyner’s address, Sunday, on the “True Fiem.nts of Success’’ was very good, and the men present ex pressed themselves as well pleased with it. * Mr. Campbell, who is now attending the first Boys’ Conference at Pan tom lake, will return Wednesday, July 22. This is the first boys’ conference in the history of the state and, no doubt as a result next year, will show a big in crease along this branch of the Y. M C. A. work. The camp pictures which were taken by one of the leaders, W. Johnson, are very interesting ami prove that the boys who had the privilege of attend ing the first Y. M. C. A. camp had a jolly time. The set is composed of pic tures of the boys, at the station, in swimming, eating, portaging boats, aud some very fine scenery. They atv in book form, with a neat cover, with the wording, “Camp Harmony of the Wausau Y. M C. A. Juniors on Rice Lake.” A copy may be seen at the Association building. A paper has been received from Ham ilton, Ont., where the new director, Mr J Murray, w ill hail from, announc ing the result of the Pentathlon contest held by that Association Mr. Murray, as usual, was the star, winning from all comers.

Improvements That Make It the Very Best Equipped Office in Northern Wisconsin. ' * * 4 ■ w \ .. ■ 1 . - It is said that, “He that bloweth not his own horn, for him shall it not be blown;” so, under the cir cumstances, we hope the p\ lie will pardon us for doing a litt.e “blowing.” Two years ago the old building, which held all there was of the Pilot, commenced to cave in, in numerous places and the force re belled longer to risk their lives, so it became necessary to erect a building, or go out of business. The result was that the Pilot was installed in its new quarters, on Scott street, in September, 1000. It was found that the second floor was not strong enough to warrant putting in larger and faster run ning presses, so the past spring a foundation was built of 12x12 tim bers and a superstructure for a press room. They do say that the building is a very creditable one, but to show the readers of this family journal just what kind of a home the Pilot has, a picture of the same is herewith produced. The building is solid brick, the low er stores being occupied by Win, Baerwald, dealer in groceries, and The James Music company. The entire upper floor is taken by the Pilot, with the exception of a suite of two office rooms on the right of the stairway, which is occupied by the Northern Lumber Cos. and W. G. John, district agent for the Northwestern Mutual Life Insur ance company. In the new press room, which runs out even with the second floor. two new Babcock presses have been placed, one is a ‘’Reliance” for the newspaper, large enough to print four pages of a six column paper at one time. It has air springs, tape less delivery and all the modern im provements. The other pre-- is a “Standard” pony cylinder, which is conceded to be the very be-t cylin der press made, for rapid work, and is high gTade in every particular. It is simply out of the question to explain to one not belonging to the craft what these fast, high gTide presses will be to an office, and it means that the Pilot is equipped now to do much of the work which has had to be sent out of the city to be done. This will be a great conven ience to customers who will be able to read proofs and make such changes as may come to his mind as work progresses. Besides the presses (pictures of which are pro duced with this article) there has been anew Menges folder, paster and trimmer added, which will en able the edition to be folded as fast as it comes from the press. Besides all this a very large amount of new faces have been added to the Pilot job department, together with a vast amount of material, etc. The improvement which will add the most to facilitating work, is the installing of a three-horse power electric motor. This motor was made by the General Electric Cos., of Schnectady, N. Y. It is known as an induction motor, of three horse power, 110 volts, 32 amperes. It is simple in construction and operates with the steadiness of a watch. This machine will work all of the Pilot’s machinery without any dif ficulty, and the Pilot enjoys the distinction of being the first institu tion in th'e city operated ,by elec tric power in the day time, and the motor was operated this afternoon in running off this edition, and the Wausau Electric company will keep its plant running night and day hereafter, to furnish those desiring power. We invite in our friends to look over the improvements made in the Pilot office, and while they may appear very nice to them there is no one who can appreciate their worth as we do ourselves. ANKLE SPRAINED. Our popular insurance man, John N- Manson. met with a very severe acci dent last evening which will lay him up for some time. He was out ridiDg. and when he returned, he alighted from the carriage on a plank that crossed the gutter and it gave way i Jobu’s a heavy weight) and the result was a badly sprained ankle.

RITTER ft IIEUTSCIi, DtATH OF MRS. E. M. JAMES. On Saturday night, July 18, 1903, at a little after 10 o’clock, Mrs. Elroy M. Janies departed this life at her home on East llill, surrounded by her family and relatives. Her death was not unex pected, for she- bad been a great suf ferer for the past three years, of Bright’s disease. And since October, 1902, she has been unable to get out of her without assistance. The attending physician recom mended a change of climate, to avoid the rigorous winter of northern Wis consin, and she was taken to Phoenix, Arizona, Mr. James aud daughter being with her most of the time. They all returned to Wausau on the 15th of March, Mrs. James showing no im provement, although it might have been the means of extending her life for a few months. At times, for the past eight months, she was very near death’s door, and at last, according to her wish, it was opened and she entered into the enchanted realm of eternal rest. Through her whole sick ness, she has borue her intense suffer ings with Christian fortitude, uncom plaining aud showing that sweetuess of disposition which had characterized her through life. Clara Judson James was bom in the city of Wausau, on the 20th day of De cember, 18t>2. Her parents were Mr. and Mrs. Garry L. Judson, who were amoug the very early settlers here and with others comprised the little band of pioneers who opened up the wilderness and made it possible for us to have and enjoy such a city as Wausau. While both have passed away, they still live in the memories of those who knew them. Deceased grew to womanhood here and was always a great favorite in all her walks of life. On the 9th day of September, 1891, she was united in mar riage to Elroy M. James, to them was born one daughter, Gertrude, who is now eight years of age. Mrs James was a woman of rare character, a devoted wife and mother and an accomplised lady. She had strong faith in friends and great charity for all human crea tures. A member of the First M. E. Church of this city, she was always en gaged in Christian work when her health permitted. The memory of the life spent among us since infancy is dear not only to the family circle but to the friends who have been drawn closer from year to year Just when the heart was rich in womanhood and life seemed stretching before her like a dawning day she has passed away. Her loss to her family and immediate circle jf relatives and friends is irrepar able. Besides husband and daughter, the immediate relatives surviving are two sisters and one brother Mrs. L. W. Davis, of Shenandoah, 'lowa; Miss Lucy Judson, of Lake Bluff, 111., and Garry Judson, of Pilot Rock, Ore gon. Miss Judson was here with her sister most of the time during her sick ness and death. She also leaves an aunt, Mrs. P. McKeller, of the town of Weston, in this county. The funeral was conducted from the family residence at 2:30 o’clock this afternoon, the Rev. Frank A. Pease, of the First Methodist church, officiating. The following acted as pall bearers, viz: A. W. Gearhart, A. H. Grout, A. A. Hoeper, A. H. Clark, W. B. Schol field and E. B. Thayer. A large con course of mourning relatives and friends followed the remains to their last resting place in the Wausau ceme tery. MEETING OF LAND OWNERS. A meeting of the land owners, inter ested in what is known as the Dancy Marsh, was held in the court house this city on Friday, July 17th. Those who were in attendance wereG D Jones,of this city; Geo. H Reynold?, of Marsh held; J. P Malick, of Stevens Point; D. H Corlett, of EiuPlcine; G. G. Knoller, of Dancy; Peter Hoffman, of Blinker; Chas. and John Brinkman, of Rozell ville, and others from that locality and Chas. Harmon and R R Bourland, of Peoria. 111. G. D.

P Malick and Peter Hoffman w as selected as parties to employ an attorney to look after the legal , art of the work. The object of the meeting was to form a drainage district, aid the majority of the land owners in the Marsh is anx ious to get matters shaped so, that the draining may be begun next year, and thereby get the property in tillable con dition so soon as possible. A WOMAN’S COMPLEXION. It s rank foolishness to attempt to remove sallowneso or greasiness of the skin by the use of cosmetics, or “local” treatment, as advocated by the “ber.nty doctors.” The only safe and sure way that a woman can improve her com plexion is by purifying and enriching the blood, which can only be accom- pished by keeping the liver healthy and active. The liver 's the seat of disease and blood pollution. Green's August Flower acts directly on the liver, cleanses aud enriches the blood, purities the complexion. It also cures constipation, biliousness, nervousness and induces refreshing sleep. A single bottle of August Flower has been known to cure the most pronounced and distressing cases of dyspepsia and indigestion. New trial size bottle, 25 cents; regular size, 75 cents.

Friday, July J7th, 1003, after an illness of only three hours. De ceased had been in a feeble condition for some years and for the past eight months had been contined to her room. She was a woman w’ho was happiest when working for others and when age rendered this impossible, it was a groat trial to her. Her most earnest wish for years had been that the Lord would see tit to take her home. Mrs. Manley, whose maiden name was Susan Scott, was born in Catter augus Cos., New York, Oct. 10, 1820, and was married to Riley Manley, April 17, 1844. They came to Wisconsin the next spring and were among the earliest residents of Washington Cos., residing on their farm there for almost forty years, although not continuously, some years having been spent in Fond du Lac and a short time in St. Joe, Missouri. Two children were born to them— Rosetta and Jennie. The former, Mrs. "HIS MASTER’S VOICE-” Just the thing to take on your outing trip. A fine new lot of machines and records just received.

With its look of peace, its patient grace, And hair smoothed softly (town. We touch our own to the clay cold hands, From life’s long labor freed And among the blossoms white aud sweet, We note a laneh of golden wheat A token from some dear friend: We know not what work her hands had found. What rugged places her feet; What cross was hers, what blackness of night We see but the peace, the blossoms white, And the bunch of ripened wheat. The blossoms whisper of fadeless bloom, Of a laud where falls no tears. The ripe wheat tells of toll and care, The patient waiting, the trusting prayer, The garnered good of the years. LET THEM BATHE. The Stevens Point Journal hits the nail on the head when it gives the following bit of advice to those of this city, who have bad their modesty shocked at boys going in bathing with in the city limits : —“The business men of Wausau had better lay in a stock of suitable bathing suits, call off the police and let the hoys bathe. The boys will buy the suits all right and no one’s modesty need be severly shocked. The herd of the unwashed is mighty and bathing should be encouraged." Farmers ! —Save your horses and ma chinery by using our machine oils, for they are the best, at the same price you are paying for inferior oils, at the Par dee drug store.
