It is written in Mr. Gilbert’s best style and is conceded by competent critics to be an exquisite work of art. It is a simple love story the characters of which are lightly and firmly sketched, while the dialogue is full of dainty humor mingled with simple pathos. As pre sented by Mr. Richards and his compe tent company it will no doubt please a large audience of better class of theatre goers. Prices 25-35-50 c F’rank Jadack, a former resident, of Marshfield, who was arrested a year ago upon complaint of Katie Weiss, of the village of FMgar, on a criminal charge, is dead.

The first public market day at Athens a week ago was a far greater success than the people of that village had anticipated. The village was crowded with farmers from morning until sun down and every merchant reported that he had that day done the largest business of his career. Every farmer who brought live stock or farm pro duce to the village disposed of it and the market attracted many outside rep resentatives of farming and dairy im plement manufacturers. One feature which attracted many farmers was the selling of two glasses of beer for 5c and of this the Athens Record says: “The bar tenders were not the only busy men. Some of the fellows oo the op posite side of the bar were just as busy.” The citizens of the village are preparing to make the next market day, June 3, a still greater one.

R , held last even ng the follow ing committee report was adopted : To the Officer* and Menders of I.ysand r tiiler Vjst So 55, G. Ali , Hu turn , Wisconsin. - Ihe undersigned, who by a vote >f the members i>f the Post, weiv dn.y appointed to prepare and submit Nr your consideration, a program for tlie proper observance of Memorial Sir - day, May 28th, 1905, and also for Deco, - ation day. May 3Wui, 1905. most respect fully submit the following : After careful aud thorough investiga tion and consultation with different parties, we have come to the conclusion that the Wausau cemetety, now called Pine Grove cemetery, is the most appropiate and ideal place to have the veteran soldiers, as well as those of our citizens who feel like doing honors to our departed comrades, brought to- f ether for a proper observance of the oth day of May, the day set apart and consecrated for the purpose of strewing flowers on the graves of those who participated in the defense of our coun try during the late Rebellion, notwith standing the fact, that, as we under stand it, some objection is made to this plan. The objection, as we are informed, is, that with suon a large gathering of people, some thoughtless person may step on some grave or destroy shrub bery, and that therefore these cere monies aud gatherings ought to be had at some other place, but we still are of the opinion that the cemetery is the niost appropriate place for such gather ings ana ceremonies. If the officers of the cemetery associa tion will establish a rule, forbidding horses and vehicles to be driven into the crowd assembled near the place where ceremonies are being conducted or people gather to listen to an oration, they w'.ll help in this way, that the life and limbs of those standing in the roads and alleys of the cemetery are not endangered by horses becoming restless and frisky, and driving people out of the roads onto burial lots and among shrubbery, and if, each member of the Post ajd every member of the Camp of Sons of Veterans will for that occasion consider himself a special guard to prevent people from trespass ing, there will be no such trouble as anticipated by those who oppose the people gathering in the cemetery. By the observance of Decoration day, the people at large have been educated to take an interest in their lots on the cerhetery, aud have, as a general thing, kept their lots in nice shape, and it is the opinion of your committee that with a little more caution, people can be educated to learn and comprehend that although they have a right to gather on the roads and by ways of the cemetery, in the vicinity of places where cere monies are being conducted or orations delivered, yet they must not trespass on the lots owned by different individ uals, and which are used for burial purposes and are hallowed ground, they must and will learn to respect the rights of others, aud if some miscreant should willfully trespass upon those rights, arrest him and bring him before the court, and have an example made of him for the warning of others. Your committee is of the opinion that the veterans have a legal right to be on the cemetery on that day and they do not feel like asking permission of Tom, Dick or Harry for a place to conduct their services on Decoration day. The following is the program, agreed upon by us : MEMORIAL SERVICES, MAY 28tH., 1905. The Ministers’ association of Wausau, has kindly arranged for a union sendee to be held at the new Methodist church on Sunday, May 28th, at 10 o’clock a. m., which service will be a memorial service, appropriate to the occasion, for which the day is set apart, including special singing. All are most heartily invited to attend this service. TUESDAY, MAY 30tI1, 1905. At 1:30 p. M. the officers and members of Lysander Cutler Post No. 55, G. A. R., and the ollicers aud members of Carl H. Mueller Camp No. 4, Sons of Veterans, will attend at the monument in the court house square, and there Sons of Veterans will decorate that monument in memory of those com rades, who lie buriecf, but not for gotten in unknown graves in Southern soil, after which they will all proceed to the corner of Third and Scott streets, where a procession will be formed in the following order : Marshal of the day, Comrade E. Young. Members of the city council and city officials. Color bearer and color guards. Columbia band. Company G, W. N. G. Carl 11. Mueller Camp No. 4 Sons of Veterans. Lysander Cutler Post No. 55 G. A. R. Flower girls in carriages. Civic societies. Citizens at large.

Singing of America by quartette and audience. G. A. R. ritual service. Decorating of graves by flower girls and committee of members of G. A. It. While the graves are being decorated, the band will play appropriate airs and all will proceed to the chapel in the cemetery. Assembled at the chapel, there will be singing by a quartette. Address by Dr. W. G. Carrier, president of Carroll college, Waukesha, Wisconsin. Selection by quartette. Benediction by post chaplain. Respectfully submitted, R. H. Johnson. Carl H. Mueller.

Chubb, a merchant of Harlan, Mich. There is do question about its being the best, as it will cure a cold in leas tune than any other treat ment. It should always be kept in the bouse ready for instant use, for a cold can be cured in much less time when promptly treated. For sale by all druggists. SUICIDED. A Former Citizen of Wausau Shoots Himself. The many friends of Louis J. Rens, in Wausau, were shocked to learn, Friday, of his death which occurred at Oconto on Wednesday, May 10th. Mr. Rens had been a trusted employee of the H. E. McEachron company for the past twenty years and eight years had been conducting the company’s branch grain and flour business at Oconto. During the early part of the week, W. E. Dodge, one of the members of the company, was at Oconto to check up the business. He did not find accounts to his satisfaction and at die dinner hour it was under stood that Mr. liens would make a few collections and return shortly after one o’clock to resume the work, but he nev er returned, A correspondent of the Evening Wisconsin gives the following account of the affair : “L. J. liens, who ha£ had chavg-i of 11. E. MeEachron’s grain and flour business in this city for the past five years, committed suicide Wednesday afternoon in an old barn just outside of the city limits. His body was not found until yesterday afternoon. “On Tuesday an auditor of the com pany appeared at the warehouse to j check up the aeeoums of liens but i these did not seem to show up v u-y sat- j isfactory. liens excused hiiusuii, say- 1 ing there were large amounts due from ! city merchants. He was then sent out I to make collections. “On Wednesday he disappeared and i no trace of him con hi lie round until [ Friday afternoon, when a far jer com ing in said he saw a bicycle lyiug on the side of the road near the city limits. Officers went out, found the bicycle, and after looking aoout for a time, found Rens with a bullet hole through his head. “On his oerson were found a few checks and $2 in change and a note to his wife, saving: “Ida, forgave me, as 1 am not to blame. I nave not a dollar and they will find me short and every time it is more. Love to you all. L. J. Rens.’ “The fore part of the week he sent his family to Wausau on a visit, where they were notified of the suicide. A coroner’s jury was empaneled aud gave a verdict of suicide. He leaves a wife end two children.” It appears that deceased looked at his business dealings in the wrong light. If ne was short in his accounts he could, by a few years of saving, have made his shortage good. The giving of his life life did not help matters. Louis Rens was a young man well thought of by all who knew him while he lived in YVau sau. He was popular among the young er element, was sharp in business tran sactions and bore the reputation of be ing a man of unimpeachable integrity. The MeFlachron Cos. had such faith in him that it did not require him to give bonds. Before moving to Oconto, he was united in marriage to Miss Ida Steller of this sity, on whom the blow of his death falls most heavily. A week ago today she came to Wausau with her children to attend the wedding of a rel ative, which was to have been held this week, and to her the sad news was con veyed F'riday night by members or the local lodge of Oau Fellows. The funeral was held Sunday after noon from the City hotel in this city and was attended by a large number of sorrowing friends. The services were conducted by the Rev. F. Schaer, pastor of St. Paul’s church. The funeral was attended by the local Odd F'ellows and M. W. A. bodies, to which deceased be longed. PROF. TO3FY CHOSEN. Prof. Silas Tobey, of Chippewa Flails, has accepted the superintendency of the city schools to succeed Karl Mathie, who will retire at the end of the present school year to accept the management ol a paper mill in Minnesota. Mr. Tobey w;is in the city last week, when the position was offered him, hut he did not accept before conferring with the board of education of his home city. He has been superintendent of the Chippewa Falls schools for the past six years, and those people living in this city who know him, speak of him in the highest terms as an educator. He is a broad minded, many sided man who has lent a power of influence in build ing up the schools of Chippewa Falls and no doubt will keep the Wausau schools on the high piaue they are on at present He is forty-two years of age and wilt move his wife and chil dren here perhaps in August before the commencement of the fall term. The school board offered the position to Prof. Meriea, of Lawrence university but he refused to accept. Principal C. C. Parlin was also importuned to ac cept but stated that he was satisfied with his present position, but would as sume the burden providing no other choice was made. AT ST. JOHN’S CHURCH.
