Lamont, Grover Cleve land’s famous secretary and afterwards secretary of war, died at his summer home in Milbrook, N. Y., at 9:15 o’clock Sunday evening. There are some democratic papers helping the Eastern capitalistic press to knock Roosevelt. However the heft of abuse ot the president comes from re publican quarters. And it is interest ing for a democrat to see how Roose velt’s republican critics jump at every little chance to knock him. This paper is very far from approving some of the president’s recent acts; but when there are great evils to battle with we do not feel much like making hue and cry about little ones. The president is far and away better than his republican traducers. The complimentary banquet and re ception to be given in Madison next Friday evening promises to be one of the most elaborate affairs of its kind ever given in Wisconsin. Col. Bryan is to deliver an address at the Monona Lake Assembly in the afternoon of July 28th. The democratic members of th< legislature a few weeks ago held a meeting and voted that a banquet and reception be tendered Col. Bryan on the evening of the above date, by the democrats of Wisconsin. A committee was appointed and the members of the same have been diligently at work making preparations and the result will be a notable gathering of the dem ocrats on the above date. The banquet and reception will be held at the Park hotel. Gov. LaFollette may not qualify as Senator. At Cleveland, Ohio, last Sat urday, he gave out the following inter view: “I have not yet decided that I will qualify as United States senator. If I do, I shall have to resign as governor of Wisconsin and I think I am deeply under obligation to the people of Wis consin, with whose aid I have accom plished reforms along lines where cor rection was badly needed. I have not decided that I can leave the work at this stage, but 1 believe that, with the new laws we have, it is pretty well under control. “If I go to the senate it will be be cause I believe 1 can better serve the interests of my people there than I can in the executive chair. I have yfct two years to serve as governor. My suc cessor as senator will be elected by the legislature if I do not accept the sen atorship.” Self Government. Lawson says the American people cannot succeed, as the Europeans do, if they try the remedy of public owner ship of monopolies. And yet we are swelling around and talking about how we are going to bring up our Philippino baby. How would it do for us to sur render to King Edward and let him bring us up? Municipal ownership thrives nicely in Great Britain. No, we must not do that just yet,—we must try our hand at municipal owner ship. Chicago will not, we trust, be so foolish as to throw away her present chance to set a shining example. And we must take it for granted that the work ing of the municipal ownership machine in Chicago will not be perfect. But Chicago, after her experience of mon opoly, ought to be able to put up with lesser evils the control of which are in her hands, and which she may reason ably hope to overcome in time.

The average man does not save to ex ceed ten per cent of his e.’.rnings. He must spend nine dollars in living ex penses for every dollar saved. That being the case he cannot be to careful about unnecessary expenses. Very often a few cents properly invested, like buying seeds lor his garden, will save several dollars outlay later on. It is the same in buying Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs but a few cents, and a bottle ot it in the house often saves a doctor’s bill of several dollars. FOR SALE.

Mrs. Russell Lyon and Mrs. Henry E. Smith invited an- tuber of their lady friends to their jU nmer home on the banks of the Witionsin river, south west of the city, Saturday afternoon in honor of their sister, Mrs. Garey, of Memphis, Tenn. It was an afternoon in which a launch ride on the Wiscon sin, music, social intercourse and re freshments helped to make it full of pleasure to all present. A clergyman preached a loug ser mon from the text, “Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.” After the congregation had listened about an hour some began to get weary and went out, others soon followed greatly to the annoyance of the preach er. Another person started, whereup on the parson stopped his sermon and said: “That is right, gentlemen, as fast as you are weighed pass out.” He con tinued his sermon at some length after that, but no one disturbed him by leaving. Someone entered the barn of Robt. Kickbusch one night recently during the family’s absence, and after firing up Mr. Kickbusch’s automobile ran it out into the country and succeed in de molishing it. It was someone familiar with the surroundings and with a knowledge of the whereabouts of the family, and a certain party is suspected. During last week someone also entered the barn and hitched up one of the horses to a rig and the horse ran away and made a wreck of the vehicle. Heinrich Borchardt, of the town of Berlin, died last Sunday afternoon of heart failure, aged 31 years. Deceased was one of the very prosperous farmers of that vicinity, having a fertile farm, a nice home and large outbuildings. As he lay dead in the home, the heavy wind of Monday blew down one of his barns, and ruined many apple trees. Deceased is survived by a wife and three children. The funeral services were held on Tuesday afternoon, and was one of the largest of that vicinity.— Merrill Star. It is reported that a young man well known in the city, but residing just out of town attempted to kill his wife Sun day evening. He had been on a spree for several days and went home and after blackening his wife’s eyes got a revolver and, it is said was in the act of shooting the woman when he was in terfered with. A man who had come to the farm house to milk some cows heard the fracas and entered, just in time to knock the revolver out of the husband’s hand. It is said some inter esting developments will result.

Fair Bill. In its issue of two weeks ago the Pilot published a full copy of the arti cle in the Marathon county fair pre mium book, in which the management of the fair showed up the schemes by which the Northern Wisconsin State Fair at Chippewa Falls was preparing to swell the amount of state aid allowed by the new fair l&w, by putting their hired attractions in their regular pre mium list in order to iucrease the amount paid out as premiums on which their 40 per cent, of state aid is com puted. The premium list of the Inter-Srate fair at LaCrosse, just issued, shows that this fair, also specially favored in the new law, is not satisfied with the special aid allowed by the state, but wants in addition to obtain more of the state’s money by graft methods. On page 88 of their premium list they offer special premiums for the following attractions, which everyone knows are hired and are only put under the head of premiums to cover up a deliberate attempt to steal state money : “1 For the best regimental band in the National Gua’ ds of the states of lowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Bands must at least play two days during the fair $400.00 2 For the best band in LaCrosse, Trempealeau, Monroe and Vernon counties, Wisconsin. Band to play at least one day during the fair 125 00 3 For the best performance, two or more performers, parties entering for this specialty act will be expected to give daily performance at least once each day during the fair and may consist of any act which the directors may decide worthy of entry 200.00 4 For the best act by trick horse, or ponies, two performances daily 100.00” This trick if allowed by the state officials will allow the Inter-State fair to add $825 to the amount paid out for premiums, will also allow them to add $825 more on account of speed, making $1,650 for the state to pay 40 per cent, on, or $660 pure graft. We submit that a fair which will attempt a steal of this k : nd, can be de pended upon to manipulate its premium figures in other ways so as to draw pretty near the limit of SSOOO allowed by the state. Are some of the county fairs graft ing ? Since the Marathon county fair has started the light on the special state fairs, secretary Wright has received a number of letters from the secretaries of some of the leading county fairs in the state endorsing the course of our fair, and promising their aid in secur ing anew bill which will give fairs aid according to their merits and at the same time protect the state treasury from the graft of unprincipled fair officials. A letter received from the secretary of one of the leading county fairs in the state, shows that many of the small county fairs are also plundering state funds. In quoting from this letter, na- ies are suppressed, as the writer did not wish to have trouble with the offi cials of fairs in his vicinity: “L. K. Wright, Secretary of Fair, Wausau, Y\ is. Dear Sir:—Your premium list re ceived and carefully read. Your com ments on the Chippewa Falls fair receive my heartiest approval. The state has been compelled to pay many dollars which ought not to have been paid. There are many of the new fairs (small ones usually) that have been get ting as much aid from the state as our fair or yours. Many of them offer less than SI,OOO in premiums, yet they man age to get $1,200 (the limit) from the state. 1 do not know how they do it, unless the officers add above the SI,OOO for races and call that ‘premiums.’ I have visited 16 fairs in Wisconsin, and many of them ought not to have re ceived a dollar as aid from the state. The fairs at and are of that class. Their gate receipts amount to less than SI,OOO, premiums verv low and paid out very grudgingly. “Your war on the Northern Wiscon sin and Inter-State fairs receives my approval and will help what I can, but you ought to have gone fji some of our small fairs. I have often talked about these things, but have laid the blame upon our so-called politicians who are airaid of losing a few votes if they do a they ought. * * * Yours truly.” We know that this letter speaks the truth. Two years ago a fair within a hundred miles of Wausau drew the limit of state aid, $1,200, and all the I exhibits at the fair could have been housed aud displayed in one barn of the Marathon county fair. We were told by Wausau people who visited that ifllThe GREATEST Suit Sale J||§BB WAUSAU HAS EVER KNOWN iSjHHT v " Men’s sl2 and sls Finely Tailored Suits Qo at $9.

These scrub cows were made to l’epresent all the breeds in the catalogue and were mul tiplied into herds, one cow drawing premium on all classed, from bull to calf, and by this means a fair not enti tled to a cent of state aid, drew $1,200, most of which went into horse racing. ; ; How long will our state officials stand for this kind of robbery ? An examination of the entry books which they certainly could demand would quickly reveal the truth and save the state thousands of dollars.

Too often this has hap pened, and hardly a winter has passed without some such disaster. A man so lost will often trust to the instinct of the dogs to find a way home through the bewildering storm and gloom. Sometimes, however, even the animals have been at fault. In a recent case a fisherman with three dogs was overtaken on the homeward way by a sudden tempest of wind and snow. To see even a few feet must have been impossible, and even the dogs must have been overcome with fright or found that they were unable to guide themselves in the right di rection. Still, though two were loose, they did not desert the man. When the searching parties found him on the following day he was dead, frozen to death, but the dogs with him were alive. Cne dog, which had not been unharnessed, was mad, however, and had to be killed at once.—George Hib bard in Harper’s Magazine. An Anntialian View of I'n.
