Representatives of the different fra ternal organizations, which participat ed in the celebration and picnic on July 4th, met at the court house on Friday evening and cleaned up all business resulting from that affair. It was found that after paying all ex penses a surplus of $58.73 was left, and it was voted to turn the same over to the public library fund. It was also decided to make the picnic organization permanent. Printed circulars will be sent out to all lodges, social organiza tions, churches anti other bodies, re questing that representatives be sent to a meeting which will be held in about two weeks. At that meeting perman ent organization will be perfected, officers elected and plans discussed for the celebration of 1908. The celebra tion of this year, while a success aside from the weather, could have been made far better with more united ef forts on the parts of all societies. Some appeared to be troubled with “cold feet” and were afraid to participate. With all societies and citizens at large uniting and with lixed organization, a celebration worthy of the name can be arranged for next year or for the years after. An effort will be made to elect officers and appoint committees of men of known organizing capabilities, to assure suc cess. A year to plan and wo k out a program and details will also be an advantage; the last picnic was gotten up by a few hnsiiei’s on short notice. Had it not rained n the last Fourth, about S2OO would have been turned over to the library fund. ANNOUNCEMENT.

Popular Wausau "Young Lady Be comes Bride of Manitowoc Man. Last Tuesday evening, at the hour of seven, at the home of Mrs. E. L.

Pieper, of Concoidia college, Cambridge. 111., a personal friend of the groom. Only a few relatives and friends were present and the couple stood unattended during the ceremony. In the parlor was an arch of entwined daisies and asparagus ferns, also banks of palms, ferns, etc. Under this arch the service was held. After the ceremony a wedding supper was served and friends of the contract ing parties called at the home and ot fered congratulations. That same evening they departed on e bridal tour of two weeks after which they will go to Manitowoc to reside. Botli of the young people were grad nates of the Wisconsin University of the class of ’9B, and it was there that a friendship was formed which ripened into an engage ment and marriage. The bride is one of Wausau’s most popular young ladies, and has grown to womanhood in this city. For two years she was a teacher in our city schools and for the past five years has been a teacher in the Merrill high school. She has been prominent in social circles while in this city, is an honorary mem ber of the Monday Evening Study club and a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta. Of Mr. Schmidtman the Manitowoc Herald has the following.to say : “Mr. Schmidtman, after graduation from the university, was for a year on the staff of the Milwaukee Sentinel and then became associated in the business of the Schmidtman Son’s Cos. in this city, being secretary and treasurer of the company.

Last week the Pii.ot published an article with reference to the parasite that is attac’ing the trees at present in this section and which, if lefbalone, will kill off many of our beautiful trees. Prof. R. B. Johns, in connection, gave the readers of the Pilot considerable good information and the same has produced so much good in the com | munity that we reproduce it and would suggest to those interested to lay it aside for future reference. It is as follows : Description— The trees are killed by bugs which gather in countless numbers on the tree, working their way through crevices of the bark into the new or live bark and drawing the sap from the tree, which soon destroys its life. The old or matured bug is about one-eighth of an inch in length, has six legs, is dark colored and has a Hat body. It starts at the body, crawl ing close to the tree in the crevices of the bark and fastens cocoons in those crevices. These cocoons contain hun dreds of eggs, which soon hatch out and the result is that millions of young bugs are produced, which work their way up the tree to the younger branches and begin the work of de struction. It does not matter what size the tree may tie, none are immune from the attack of this parasite. Remedy —lf the tree is but slightly attacked the bugs can be killed by an application of whale oil, sprayed care fully in crevices. If the tree is not too high an ordinary window sprayer can be used for this purpose. The whale oil is nothing more than ordinary machine oil sold at any paint store and is inexpensive. Most any cheap oil will answer the purpose. Another remedy is a spray of an emulsion of kerosene oil and water, mixed in the proportions of one-half pint of kerosene to one gallon of water. As water and kerosene will not mix, soap should first be put in the water and stirred until a suds is obtained, when the water and oil will emulsify. This should be applied to the tree with a strong spray pump and if the work is carefully done the scale can easily be killed. Preventative —On trees not al ready attacked a preventatiye measure may be employed by soaking a piece of burlap or heavy cloth of any kind in kerosene oil and tying the same around the tree near the ground. This w ill prevent the adult bug from crawl ing up the tree and depositing the eggs. A WORD OF ADVICE. If you would find the paths to health, seek the advice of a reputable physi cian, who, through scientific research and years of experience, can give the necessary skillful treatment, says Dr. Turbin, tiie well-known specialist of Chicago, to the countless thousands of sufferers in need of medical treatment. Delay in taking steps to check the progress of disease, until the system becomes so depleted as to make the trouble chronic, places the case beyond the control of a practitioner who has not made a careful study of modern methods, or had the experience which precludes all doubt of his diagnostic ability and makes him sure of the method of procedure in each and every case. That Dr. Turbin is qualified in every way to meet these requirements, has been proven by the way in which he has won the esteem and confidence of our people, through the relief he has allorded so many of our friends and neighbors. The remarkable success w hich has at tended his monthly visits here can be attributed to the skillful and conscien tious treatment of his patients and a thorough knowledge of his specialties in chronic diseases. Consultation and examination are free, and these who are ir. of medical treatment would do well to call to see the Doctor when he visits Wau sau, Tuesday Aug. Ist, at the Beilis hotel. LILLIAN DOPP. Mr. and Mrs. Cyrus B. Dopp, of this city, received word Friday evening that their daughter, Lillian M , had that day died at Port Orchard, Wash. The family had been apprised of her illness earlier in the week, but on Thursday a message was received stating that there was no hope for her recovery and Mr. Dopp was about ready to go to her bed side when he received the news of her death. Miss Lillian Dopp was well known in this city, where she lived for a great many years prior to her departure for the West. Sir.' was born in Neillsville Feb. 2, 1871, and was graduated from the schools of that village with honors. Sometime later she removed to Wan sau and took up the study of stenog raphy under direction of Geo. Hart, in whose office she remained for live years. She then accepted a position with the Wausau Law and Land associa tion and later moved to Minneapolis and then to Seattle. In the latter city she had prior to her death held an im portant position in one of the largest law offices of the West. Miss Dopp was a lady of education, culture and refinement, and her death is a shock to her parents, brothers and many friends. Besides her parents, she leaves two brothers, William and Her bert, both of whom are living in the West. She was buried in a Seattle cemetery. HOW’S THIS?

John Anderes commenced work Thursday morning on the Stinclilield creek sewer. A crew of men is clean ing out the creek bed from the mouth up and sewer will be laid from the river up the creek a distance of 2,000 feet. It will be eight feet in diameter, which is thought will be sufficiently large to carry eff all the water. It is to be com pleted by November Ist, with time allowances for bad weather. A decision has been rendered by the officials of the Wausau land office which practically gives the Beaver Dam cotton mills and the citizens of Beaver Dam the right to maintain a dam at the foot of Beaver Dam lake. It appears that one, Chas. Hoffemeistor, "ntered several islands in the lake as a homestead and the building of the dam overflowed the islands. It was held that he made the entry purely for spec ulative purposes and not for a home; that it was obvious that no one could make a living off the islands without draining them, and that cannot be done without lowering the dam, which would damage the manufacturing business that has been carried on for years. L. K. Wright is at present confined to His home, having received a cut in his right leg Wednesday which will neoissitate his laying up for some time. He had that day been out iu the country collecting cream and was coming down the Franklin street hill when his horse began kicking. He had a large can of cream in the front of the buggy and the horse kicked the cover off the can, and then took fright. Mr. Wright jumped out of the buggy to catch the animal by the head and quiet it. He fell and was dragged along some distance before he succeeded in bringing the horse to a halt. While being dragged over the rough ground he received a long, deep gash iu his leg below the knee cap, presumably cut by a sharp stone. Dr. D. T. Jones dressed the wound. John Wehlich, a town of Texas charge at the Marathon county poor house, came down town last Wednes day during the absence of the superin tendent, Fred Rienow, secured a load of “tanglefoot” and returned towards evening. Bec&useMrs. Rienow objected to his going in the dining room before supper was ready he got abusive and chased her through the kitchen. He then attempted to take possession of the house, but the superintendent ar riving home about that time, took matters in hand <tnd ousted Wehlich. Next day he made an attempt to get back But was unsuccessful. At present he is stoppii ~ with a bachelor friend up near the . incoln county line. The superintendent has had a great deal of trouble with the man for infractions of the poor house rules. Richard Belitzki, of Athens, is re posing in the county jail for ten days because of his having ignored the law which requires working barbers to obtain a license. He has until recently been working in the shop of Emil Schroeder but a few days ago quit his employer and opened a shop of his own. He alleges that Schroeder was jealous of him and because he had no license, saw an opportunity to vent his spite. M. H. W'hittaker, of Janesville, secretary of the state barbers’ board, was communicated with and he advised the arrest of Belitzki. When the latter was brought before the Athens justice he was found guilty and sentenced to pay a fine of $25 and costs or go to jail for ten days. He thought he could not make $2.50 a day at his trade, so chose the jail sentence. He was brought over Friday by Constable Dan Bilsie. Michael Schwarm, who resides on a farm in the town of Hewitt, was badly injured Friday. He was hauling hay and was working alone. After loading up the hay rack he climbed up ou the load to drive the horses home, but fell off and the wheels passed over his body. Four ribs were broken and one of them penetrated the lung. The flesh was also torn from one of his shoulders. The team ran away, overturning the load. When the horses came home without a driver, Mrs. Schwarm be came alarmed aud started out to look for her husband. She found him lying near a gate aud succeeded in getting him to the house. Then she made an effort to telephone for a physician, but as the line was out of order, it was nearly midnight before assistance ar rived. The result o? Sehwarm’s in juries cannot be foretold. He is in a very serious condition. No. 35—TERMS, SI.BO Per Annum Henry B. Huntington, Law, Real Estate and Fire Insurance. Scott St., Opp. Court House, Wausau, Wis.
