FIRST TEACHER OF MADISON.
Louisa M. Brayton Sawin, Grand-
Mother of C- B. Bird, of This City.
Last Tuesday evening, May 3d, 1904,
the board of education of the city of
Madison renamed their public school
buildings and one of them was named
after the first teacher of that city—
“ Louisa M. Brayton ” It was the
maiden name of Mrs. Geo. Sav/in, who
still resides in Madison and is the
mother of Mrs. Geo. W. Bird, of that
city, and grand mother of Claire B.
Bird, of this city. The Madison Demo
crat of Wednesday, published an his
torical article concerning the capital
city’s first teacher and the family of
Cos), (ieo. W. Bird, and as all are well
known to our people, portions of the
same will be interesting to the readers
of the Pilot
Louisa M. Brayton, now Mrs. Louisa
M. Sawin, is the mother of Mrs. Geo.
W. Bird and is a member of her family.
She was born in Wilua, Jefferson coun
ty, New York, on the 23d day of May,
1810. Her father was Deacon Jeremiah
Brayton, who moved from Wilnato to
Cleveland, Ohio, in 1835, and in 1837
emigrated to Wisconsin aud settled on
the banks of the Crawfish river, near
A/, talon, in Jefferson county. The
article goes on to give a detailed ac
count of the Brayton family, consisting
of parents, three daughters and one
son, coming to Wisconsin. They came
to Milwaukee by way of the lakes, and
from there, by t)ie assistance of Solo
mon Juneau, and with about nine or
ten others who had joined the party,
secured six bx teams, and with prairie
schooners reached their destination.
Early in 1837 A. A. Bird passed
through from Milwaukee to Madison
with his party, to build the capitol.
Later in the same year he brought his
family to Madison, and Mrs. Bird being
somewhat nervous at the thought of
going into the interior, induced one
of the Brayton girls to go with her—
Miss Lavina Brayton. In 1838 the fol
lowing named were present at a meet
ing to consider the matter of opeuing a
school : A. A Bird, Johu Stoner,
Khan Peek and Prosper Bird, all heads
of families, having children of school
age, and were deeply interested, as
their children were becoming quite
familiar associates with the Indian
children and rapidly acquired their
roving ways aud habits. A school
was directed to be opened, anil upon
consultation with Miss Farina Brayton,
it was decided to send for her older
sister, Miss Louisa, aud have her take
charge of the school.
In the meanwhile a tall Winnebago
Indian had quietly slipped into the
room, and stood back up against the
wall, watching the proceedings and
listening attentively. Although he
could talk a little English, his natural
keenness soon enabled him to compre
hend what was going on, and especial
ly what was wanted, and he offered to
go and bring the girl. He made known
iliat he knew where the Brayton family
lived—that he had been there some
days before and was anxious to take his
pony and go aud bring the girl at once.
To impress his good faith on his hearers
lie explained with much pantomime and
jesticulation where they lived, the nnm
ner in the family, and somewhat of
their habits and surroundings. Then
with much eagerness he tried to ex
plain something he had seen there that
had evidently made a decided impres
sion on him. He beckoned them to the
door—pointed up at the sun, then drew
his finger slowly down the sky to the
eastern horizon, then struck his fist five
or six times in his hand, uttering an
“Uph!” with each strike. Then he
traced his Huger up the sky and at in
tervals stopped and struck his hand
with his fist as before, but with an ad
ditional strike at each stop, until he
reached the zenith w r hen he made
twelve strikes. Then he swung his
baud slowly backward and forward,
uttering “tick-tock, tick-tock.” At
once young Lavina told him he was
describing the tall, old fashioned Seth
Thomas clock they had in their little
log house at home. All were satisfied
then that he had been at the Braytons.
His kiud oiler to go and bring the girl,
however, was declined, and it was de
cided to send Charles H. Bird, a young
er brother of A A. Bird, on the mission.
Such was the first school meeting held
in Madison, and a native Indian of the
forest took a striking part in it.
The article then goes on to say that
at different times on their way they
saw skulking through the woods, a
large Winnebago Indian evidently keep
ing pace with them, who proved to be
the same one that took part in the school
meeting. He had evidently gone un
bidden to she mission for the teacher
and was now returning to see that she
was safely brought to her destination.
The school opened the first day with
twelve scholars, among them were J.
W. Stoner and his two sisters, Serena
and Minerva; Thenodyne and Franklin
Bird and their sister, Marion; Victor
Peck; Prosper Bird and Ed. George.
The article closes as follows:
“In January, 1843, she was married to
Mr. G eorge Sawin, of LaPorte, Indiana.
Two children were born to her there, —
one a son, Albert B. Sawiu and one
daughter, Maria S. Sawin. The son was
a private in Company F. of the ‘26th
regiment in the eivil war, and died in a
hospital at St Louis, the mother reach
ing there just as he expired. The daugh
ter is Mrs. Geo. W. Bird of this city.
Mr. Geo. Sawin died Jan 9th, 1853, and
the daughter was married to Col. Geo.
VV. Bird in Oct., 1864, and sine** hen
Mrs. Sawin has lived in their l mi'-.
She is now over 87 years of age and in
the enjoyment of remarkably good
health.
The old clock that the Winnebago
[ndian so graphically described in the
lirst school meeting stands at the head
of the stairs in Colonel Bird’s residence,
and Mrs. Sawin, every night as she re
tires, passes to the head of the stairs,
draws up the weights and thus kee' ; >s it
running. Although s woodeu clock, it
lias now been keeping time for over 82
years, and after such irmg service is as
reliable as any clock in town except the
special clocks at the University. It has
a clear striking bell, that rings through
the house, and a strong tick that makes
itself constantly know n. No wonder it
made an impression on the Indian.
Every housekeeper should know that
if they will buy Defiance Cold Water
Starch for laundry use they will save
not only time, because it never sticks to
the iron, but because each package con
tains 16 oz.—one full pound—while all
other Cold Water Starches are put up
in {-pound packages, and the price is
the same 10 cents. Then again because
Defiance Starch is free from all injuri
ous chemicals. If your grocer tries to
sell you a 12-oz package it is because
he has a stock on hand which he wishes
to dispose of before he puts in Defiance,
iHe knoVs that Defiance Starch has
j printed on every package in large let
| ters and figures “16 ozs.” Demand De
t fiance and save much time and money
j and the annoyance of the iron sticking
i Defiance never sticks. if.
A base ball team has been organized
!of Wausau home talent, which will be
i under the management of Carl Adams.
Belanger k Struck nave donated a suf
ficient sum of money to purchase uni-
I forms, and the boys will endeavor to
secure a game for next Sunday. As an
I expense guarantee an effort will be
j made to sell 500 tickets at 50c each, and
i if this plan is successful there ought to
be a surplus left after paying all e: pen
! ses. If the team receives the urope en-
Icouragement, its manager will strength
en up as the season progresses and
some good games may be anticipated.

SURPRISING CURE
BY DR. TURBIN.
It is perfectly astonishing to note the
results of certain modern methods of
medical treatment.'
Some time since there applied to Dr.
L. M. Turbin, the noted specialist, who
is well known in this community
through his monthly visits to Wausau,
Mr. Emil Griffin, of Deerfield, who had
treated with various doctors for nervous
debility for several years without ob
taining help.
His general health became so depleted
from the weakness caused by frequent
severe attacks, as to make him at times
contemplate suicide. The opinions ex
pressed by some of the physicians whom
he consulted were that his vitaltiy was
so low and the nerve-system so wrecked
as to give the case severe feature of
hopelessness.
In this dire extremity, the patient
called upon Dr. Tnrbin, who probed
deeply into the cause of the patient’s
terrible state. After thorough exami
nation, Dr. Turbin discovered that his
patient’s debilitated nerve-system, ag
gravated by neglect, could be restored
to normal condition by scientific treat
ment.
For such cases Dr. Turbin has a
wonderfully effective system of treat
ment which he at once applied in this
ease with the result of immediate re
lief and a speedy cure. Thus is proven
that a scientific, conscientious physician
is master of grave conditions by reason
of his possession of deep medical knowl
edge and acute skill.
Those who wish to consult a specialist
who is thoroughly abreast of advanced
science and who cau cure any forms of
chronic diseases‘in men and woman,
may be assured that they are right in
calling upon l)r. Turbin. He has the
utmost confidence of many of our fore
most citizens, and he merits it. The
doctor may lie consulted in Wausau,
Tuesday, May 17th at the Beilis hotel.

Whooping Cough.
| “In the spring of 1901 my children
| had whooping cough," says Mrs. D. W.
j Capps, of Capps, Ala. “I used Cham
! berlains Cough Remedy with the most
i satisfactory results. I think this is the
i best remedy I have ever seen for whoop
\ ing cough.” This remedy keeps the
cough loose, lessens the severity anti
frequency of the coaghing spells and
counteracts any tendency toward pneu
monia. For sale by all leading drug
gists.
INCREASE IN ACREAGE.
Few people outside of real estate
men realize how fast the assessed
acreage of Marathou county lands is
increasing each year. In going over
the returns made by the town clerks to
the county clerk we have found some
very intei estiug figures and give here
with the result for five years. These fig
ures are for lands in *he county that
have been returned for :he years given,
as assessable.
Year 1899 969,566 Acres
“ UtOO 981.073
“ 1901 986,658
“ 1902. 999,400 “
“ 1903 1,000,004 “
There are several reasons for this in
crease one being that state lands have
been purchased aud settled upon from
year to year, and are now subject to
taxation. But notwithstanding the in
crease from this source, it is a fact that
in Wausau and many of the villages,
lands that have heretofore been taxed
as farms, have since been platted into
city and village lots, and are taxed as
such For instance, in the city of Wau
sau for last year the sum of 1,731 acres
was given as the assessed acreage, while
the year before there were 1,944 acres
credited to the city. Of the towns, Pike
Lake, which contains eighty-four sec
tions, and is the largest town in the
county, lias 50,509 assessed acres, and
the town of Wein t le smallest amount
30,898. This increase will be kept up
fora number of \ears to come before
reaching a stand still. The increase of
this year over last, will he considerably
greater than that of any year, owing
to the sale by the state of several thou
sand acres of state land in this county
last winter.

Climatic Cures.
The inflnenceof climatic conditions in
the cure of consumption is very much
overdrawn. The poor patient and the
rich patient, too, can do much better at
home by proper attention to food diges
tion, and a regular use of German Syr
up. Free expectoration in the morning
is made certain by German Syrup so isa
good night's rest and the absence of that
weakening cough and debilitating night
sweat. Restless nights and the exhaus
tion due to coughing, the greatest dan
ger and dread of the consumptive, can
be prevented or stopped by taking Ger
man Syrup liberally and regularly.
Should you be able to go to a warmer
clime, you will find that of the thou
sands of consumptives there, the few
who are benefited and regain strength
are those who use German Syrup. Trial
bottles, 25c; regular size, 75c. At al
druggists.
