ONE THANKSGIVING STORY.

Years atfo. when the country was new
Amt all the lands were sparsely settled.
A brave younK man with his bonny bride
\\ cut to the northern wilds, where but few
Had been before, not a tree was felled,
These dense woods, seemed to stretch far and
wide.
They chose a spot, where wild roses grew.
Then, piling the brush, in heaps so high
Set it ablaze, with wondering glee
Watched the Haines rise far above the dew.
Mingling on, within the cloudy sky.
True, this scene to them, was graua to see.
Here, they built a cabin, small but dear.
Wherein, treasured love and peace might reign.
Making home, the dearest place on earth.
And they worked and toiled, not knowing fear.
Borrowing no trouble, neither deign
To cherish aught, but bright, happy mirth.
Meanwhile. November’s short, dreamy days
t'arae on and found their little harvest,
Worthy the homage of a nation.
Glad were they, when the Thanksgiving rays
Shone beamingly on well deserved rest,
And proud to welcome dear relation.
They all assembled, in grand good style
In this farmer's kitchen, where steaming
Viands tempted each appetite
Joyful laughter echoed all the while
Insuring friendship, as well meaning
From start to finish it all seemed right.
Many there are on Thanksgiving day
Would greatly enjoy this cottage home
Where all were so happy, light and free.
While riches seemed coming right their way.
If faith was kept and they did not roam
Out of their world, greater homes to see.

FOR THE DEAD.
The local 15. P. O. E. lodge has made
arrangements to hold memorial ser
vices on Sunday next at the M. E.
church. The members will meet at the
lodge rooms at ten o’clock in the morn
ing and march to the church in a body.
Rev. F. H. Brigham will preach a me
morial sermon and the choir will ren- 1
der appropriate music.
The “Lodge of Sorrow” is a feature
of the Elks’ society and services for the
dead are held in the month of Decem
ber of each year. In the larger cities
services are conducted in the lodge
room, bnt in cities of the size of Wau
sau the members usually observe the.
custom by arranging services with
some church.
Though the Wausau lodge has been
organized for a great many years it has
been fortunate in the fact that it has
lost but two members. No other fra
ternal society in the city of so old an
organization cau compare with this
record. The two deceased members
are Carl Hoeflinger and \V . D. Murray.

OFFICIAL CITY PAPER
WISCONSIN SOCIETY.
The following news item is clipped
from a Milwaukee paper and is dated
Seattle, Wnsh.:
“The Wisconsin club of Washington
is the name of anew organization in
this city. The society was formed for
the purpose of creating and sustaining
a feeling of comradeship among former
residents of Wisconsin who now reside
in Washington.
“W. H. Flett, formerly of Merrill, is
president of the Wisconsin society of
Washington, and W. G. John, of Mara
ihon county, secretary and treasurer.
The society has 250 active members and
is growing. There are 20,000 former
Wisconsin people in Washington, and
probably one-fourth of these live in
Seattle.
"The Wisconsin society has adopted
sis one of its prime objects the securing
of an adequate appropriation from the
Wisconsin Legislature to assure the
state being properly represented at the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacitic exposition of
1909.
“Wisconsin people have been promi
ently connected from the first with the
exposition project, and were among the
large purchasers of stock on suscrip
tion day. The Wisconsin club will
have a vice-president for every county
in the state, whose duty it shall be to
acquaint the people of his county with
conditions in Washington.”
The vice-president appointed for
Marathon county is W. G. John, and
for Lincoln county Alfred Wright has
been named. Mr. John lived in Wau
sau until about a year ago, when he
moved to Seattle. He was district
agent here for the Northwestern Mutual
Life Ins. Cos. of Milwaukee and went
west to accept a better position with
the same company. W. 11. Flett, men
tioned above, is also well known here.
He was until some time ago, when he
moved west, one of Merrill's prominent
attorneys.
IMPROVING SERVICE.
The Westinghouse Electric Cos. of
Pittsburg, Pa., has sent a man here to
make several changes in the city’s arc
lights, which will greatly increase their
service and make them more depend
able and efficient. The lamps were pur
chased from the above company and
the concern is doing the work free of
charge to the city, for the purpose of
retaining trade. The alterations are
being made by John Ferguson, an elec
trician in the employ of the company,
and he expects to complete the job in a
short time.
The lights, since their installation,
have not given the best of satisfaction
and the matter was so reported to the
company. The changes to be made will
make practically anew lamp of each
one. New coils will be put in; the rods
supporting the carbons are being
changed and a weather shield will be
placed over each.
The residence on the John Tessman
farm in the town of Wausau was de
stroyed by tire Thursday morning. The
farm was recently purchased by Tom
Winkley and the residence at the time
was occupied by Alex. Copeland.
About two years ago another dwelling
house ou the place was destroyed by fire.
Both tires were of mysterious origin.
In the tire of Thursday morning Mr.
Copeland had a narrow escape from
suffocation. He was in the barn with
Win. Rick when the fire was discovered.
He hastened to the house and entered it
for the purpose of saving his gold watch,
clothes and money. Rick followed and
heard Mr. Copelaud fail. He also en
tered and found Copelaud lyino on the
floor, overcome with smoke, and dragged
him out.
A first class upholstery shop has long
been needed in this city. One has just
been opened at 206 Jefferson street,
back of the Marathon Cos. bank, by Mr.
John Vogt. He is a man of long ex
perience and is equipped to do all first
class work.

THE SUDDEN DEATH OF MRS. C.
E. GUENTHER.
She is dead, and as the news seem
wafted from far and near, notes of
sympathy come benignly into the
hearts of the bereaved ones and fill
their souls with a feeling of gratitude
and gratefulness, for each comforting
word or act. The banks of exquisite
flowers; designs of sweet fragrant pil
lows; wreaths of the dainty rose, with a
back ground of the fine feathery ferns;
bouquets of large, white, yellow and
purple chrysanthemums, the calla
lily, with its wax-like purity, the car
nations with their red and white color
ing, baskets filled with dainty blooms,
testified to the beauty, culture and
grandeur of this life that lias been so
suddenly snaetbed from the confines
of a bright, happy home, and her be
loved family.
Mrs. C. E. Guenther passed into that
great Beyond. Tuesday afternooD,
November 20, 1906, at 4:15 p. M. The
cause of her death was uremia poison
ing. She had been a great sufferer for
several years with headaches; for the
past few weeks, they seemed more
frequent and harder to bear although
so patient had she been and un
complaining that no one thought her
condition at all serious. Tuesday morn
ing she arose quite early anti was around
the house as usual. About 8:30 a. m.
she sat down ou a couch in the sitting
room, almost immediately she was
seized with a fainting feeling and fell to
the floor. Mr. Guenther was in hisoffice
off the room she was in at the time;
hearing the fall, he immediately stepped
out, lifting her tenderly he laid her
carefully back on the couch then hastily
summoned members of the family, Dr.
Daniels, of Mosinee, and Dr. Kosenbery,
of Wausau. Everything that loving
hands or medical skill could do, to re
suscitate her was anxiously done, yet she
never regained consciousness, and as
the sorrowful day passed on, reaching
the hour of four .ifteen, she quietly
breathed her last, apparently with no
pain or suffering. Great surprise and
consternation was felt by every one
who heard the sad news.
Mrs. Guenther was greatly admired
for her amiability and sweetness of
character, her mind was broad and
well developed, charity and kindness
were in her heart, she was a friend
to be loved, admired and appreciated.
‘•Xone knew her but to love her.”
Mrs. Guenther was born in Marathon
county, near Eau Claire river, in 1858.
When quite young, her parents moved
to Knowlton where her father, the late
E. A. Bedford, operated a saw mill in
company with Robert Wallace, now
deceased. Her mother died during her
young girlhood. After her death, Mr.
Bedford placed his daughter in a board
ing school at Stev.ens Point, conducted
by the Rev. Patch; here she remained
several years. After which she became
a student at the Oshkosh Normal
May 15, 1877, she was married to C.
E. Guenther, who survives her together
with three sons, Walter TANARUS., Roger C.
and Mark A., who all reside at the
family home. Her father, the late E.
A. Bedford, died at Dalton, Georgia,
eight years ago. Her step-mother, a
half sister, Miss Anna Bedford and half
brother, Ei win, reside at St. Agustine,
Florida. The funeral was held Satur
day afternoon at 1 p. m., Rev. S. N. Wil
son, resident pastor of the Presby
terian church, of Wausau, officiating.
The Misses Hattie liingle and Grace
lloach, sang the two beautiful hymns,
“Rock of Ages” and “Asleep in Jesus.”
Six nieces of Mrs. Guenther acted as
flower girls. The active pall bearers
were Mr. C. E. Guenther, his sons, Wal
ter, Roger and Mark, L. G. Guenther,
T. R. Guenther, A. Guenther and L.
Guenther. The honorary bearers were,
Superintendent P. C. Hart, 11. G. Flieth,
l)r. W. N- Daniels, W. Stark, Sr., G. G.
Knoller and C. S. Gilbert. A special
train was run from - Wausau to accom
modate the many friends. It returned
after the services. Friends came from
far and near to pay their last tribute of
love and respect to their dear friend,
Nellie M. Guenther. The funeral pro
cession was three-quarters of a mile
long, while many who attended did not
go to the cemetery.
Can she ever be forgotten, here on earth?
We weep and pray she inherits heavenly mirth,
Her voice mingles with the dear ones gone
before
Gentiy whispers happiness forevermore.

EARNINGS, COST, ETC,
Of the County Insane Asylum for the
Past Year.
The report of J. B. Thomas, superin
tendent of the county insane asylum,
which covers a period from June 30,
1905, to July 1, 1906, and submitted to
the county board at the last meeting,
shows many interesting things. From
it we take a few figures.
It shows that the earnings for board
and clothing for the care of inmates of
different counties, Marathon county in
cluded, was $22,686.75 and that produce
of t’;9 amount of $509.52 was sold.
The current expenses were $19,709.15;
adding to this $2,170.71 for permanent
expenses, makes the total for the year
$21,879.86.
A x.al of 8,779 weeks’ board was fur
nished and the weekly per capita cost
of expense was $2 15 per patient.
During the year a total of 5,016 articles
were made in the sewing room. Of the
articles of subsistence produced there
were 1,402 quarts, of berries, etc.,
canoed; 67 tumblers of jam and jelly;
85 quarts of pickled fruit; 80 gallons of
pickled vegetables; 24 barrels of sauer
kraut and pickled cauliflower, beans,
etc.; 35 gallons of chow chow; 625 quarts
of extracts, honey, etc.; 1,800 pounds of
sausage, pickled meats, cheese, etc.
On the farms were raised 2,620
bunches of celery and rheubarb; 5,390
quarts of berries; 606 tons of hay and
ensilage; 6 loads of squash, pumpkins
and parsnips; 3,635 bushels of veg
etables and root crops; 7,500 heads of
cabbage.
There were 359 head of stock and
swarms of bees on hand at the time of
report. This number includes six head
of deer.
Ten gallons of oysters and 43,551
pounds of meat were consumed during
the year.
Eighteen patients were received dur
ing the year, making a total of 186; 13
died, 1 was paroled, 1 was transfei’red
to another institution and 2 escaped,
leaving 169 in the hospital July 1, 1906
Of the patients who died three deaths
were caused by tuberculosis, four from
cerebral hemorrhage and the balance
from other causes. One wandered away
into the woods and was found dead.
The average age of each person at time
of death was 55.
The trustees, in their report, say:
“The sanitary condition is first class,
and considering the average age of the
inmates, as shown by the report of the
physician, we have very little sickness
and the inmates appear as contented as
can be under the circumstances.
“We have made the permanent im
provements as planned in our last
report, by adding two dormitories in
the attic, increasing the capacity about
thirty.
“YVe wish to thank Mr. J. B. Thomas,
superintendent, and Miss M. Thomas,
our matron, and all the employees for
the faithful and efficient manner in
which they have performed their duties,
as the present satisfactory condition of
the institution is largely due to their
good management.”
The asylum physician says:
“The patients have had the same
good care that they have always had.
the discipline has been splendid, and I
believe most have better homes at the
Marathan County Asylum than when
they earned their own livelihoods.
"I believe that the most critical resi
dent of this couDty could find no fault
with the way the asylum is managed
and the way in which the patients are
cared for. And certainly every resi
dent has reason te be proud of the insti
tution.”
DIDN’T LIKE HOT STOVEPIPE.
A turkey gobbler belonging to one of
the employes in the Montgomery store
created considerable excitement in the
store on Wednesday morning. The
turkey had been left in a crate in the
tinshop, but succeeded in freeing him
self. He began to fly around the room,
and lit on a stove pipe connected with
a red hot stove. The hot pipe did not
feel agreeable to tne turkey’s feet and
he soon proceeded to make himself
scarce in that immediate vicinity.
After circling about the room several
times he flew through a window, de
molishing a large pane of glass. The
glass did not stop him and he flew
accross the street, striking the building
opposite and only missed going through
another window by a hair’s breadth.
The damage done to the window in the
Montgomery store amounted to several
dollars.
FATALLY BURNED,
During the noon hour last Saturday,
Winnifred, a two year old daughter of
Mr. and Mrs Frank Hubbard, was so
badly burned that she died about an
hour later. The family reside at 323
West street and the accident happened
while the mother was temporarily ab
sent from home. She went over to visit
a neighbor liviug across the street
The child, it is thought, climbed up on
a table and secured some matches.
One was ignited and set tire to the lit
tle girl’s dress. Her screams brought
her mother and neighbors to her assist
ance and they succeeded in smothering
the flames with a quilt, but not before
the little one’s dress had been almost
burned off her body. Her hair, too,
was burned off her head and it was
quite apparent that the little girl could
not survive. Her suffering was painful
to witness. After a while she lapsed
i into a state of coma and passed away.
Men Wasted—At Arbor Vitae, for
! work in logging camps near town on
; railroad. Good wages paid and a
j steady job the year round.

LOST ARM.
While a west bound freight train was
pulling into the city over the (J. & N.
YV. R’y. Thursday, one of the brake
men, Sam Foster, met with an accident
which resulted in the amputation of his
right arm and serious bruises. He also
had a very narrow escape from death.
He had been at work all night and as
he was preparing to go to bed for the
day he was again called out to go to
work. After the train had been made
up at YY'ausau Jet. it was started for
Marshfield and Foster and another
brakeman were standing on the top of
a box car. YY’hen the Grand Ave.
bridge was approached the other brake
mau lowered his head so as to escape
the overhead bridge but it appears
Foster did not do so. After passing the
bridge Foster was not seen and his
companion, suspecting the truth, sig
nalled “down brakes” and after the
train came to a stop in the yards it was
backed up to the bridge, where Foster
was discovered and placed on board.
He was brought into town and taken to
St. Mary’s hospital as soon as possible,
wherait was found that his arm was so
badly mangled that amputation was
necessary. It was taken off above the
elbow. YY'hen passing under the
bridge, it appears, Foster was struck
and knocked off the car, falling
between two cars and it seems strange
that he came out alive. YVhile he is
badly injured, it is believed bis recov
ery is assured. He is a son of Mr. and
Mrs. John Foster who reside at 104
Second street.
SET A GUN.
John Chandler, of the town of Bergen,
was tried in municipal court Tuesday
afternoon charged with placing a set
gun in the woods, which is an act
punishable with a state prison sentence.
The evidence against him was so con
clusive that the jury found little diffi
culty on agreeing on a verdict of guilty.
Chandler, it appears, has in the past
conducted himself in a way evincing a
disregard for law and upon one occa
sion was arrested and prosecuted for
theft. His associates, too, have been of
a character which an honest man would
not choose from as companions.
The man was arrested at the instance
of Jacob Kronk, who at the trial testi
fied that while out looking for his cattle
on June 11th last he came upon Chand
ler and Anton YY'elland setting a gun
in a roadway or path which is frequent
ly traveled. They had sprinkled salt
along the path in front of the gun and
had strung a spool of thread across the
path, attached to the trigger of the gun.
Several poplar stakes used in setting
the gun, the thread, the gun and other
paraphernalia were introduced as evi
dence. Chandler was the only witness
for the defense.
At the time Chandler was arrested,
an effort was also made to capture YV el
land, but he got away. He turned up
in Stevens Point and was arrested for
burglary and jail breaking and sen
tenced to a term in prison. "Chandler, in
his testimony, threw all the blame on
YY’elland and claimed the latter set the
gun unaided by anyone.
A HUNTING STORY.
“YValter Koehler, bookkeeper at the
Lincoln county bank had an experience
the first of the week while hunting deer,
which he does not care to have happen
again and which will draw from him a
negative answer if asked whether he
will go hunting or not.
“YY r alter Koehler with several others
and a rifle (and a scarlet coat, too) went
up Prairie river in quest ot deer. Now
Koehler was very unfortunate in seeing
any deer but some other party or par
ties thought they saw one when they
gazed at the local young man from a
distance. He was standing on the bank
of the river when a bullet went over tiis
head. He ran behind a tree and the
absent-minded hunter (?) continued to
lire, several of the charges lodging in
the tree. Seven shots came in his di
rection. Mr. Koehler hiked off as soon
as possible but came back after circling
around the vicinity only to be shot at
five times more. This time when he
left he never went back.
“Now the question arises if it was not
one of the women hunters that mistook
the young man for a deer?”—Merrill
News.

THE MARATHON COUNTY AGRI
CULTURAL SCHOOL '
At this time of the year, when the
work of the farm is a little less hard,
and does not occupy the time of the
farmer and his boys as wholly as dur
ing the fall and summer, a little more
thought is being given oy parents to
the question of where to send their
boys and girls for an education which
will enable them to become useful
members of society and to enjoy advan
tages in life, which can Dot come to the
uneducated.
Many letters asking for catalogues
and information are being received
daily by the faculty of the Agricultural
school, and it is hoped that through the
medium of the press, many others will
be reached, who have not made such
personal application, but who are seri
ously considering the future welfare of
their boys and girls.
Many farmers who cherish the hope
of seeing their farms owned and
operated by their sons, when their
period for active service is over, hesi
tate to send their boys to school where
a good general education may be had,
for the reason that no special incentive
is given the boy to continue in the work
of the farm, and a consequent risk is
involved of the son seeking some other
avocation.
The Marathon County School of Agri
culture and Domestic Science is the
first county school organized in this
state primarily for the education of the
farmer s children in such a way as to
open up to their view the possibilities
of success and happiness upon the farm.
The school aims to impress upon each
country student the dignity of his
father’s calling by leading him to see
that the bone and sinew of a nation is
its agricultural population, aud that
upon this class is dependent all other
industries —in short, the very life and
prosperity of the nation.
To a school of this kind come all the
reports, papers, bulletins, magazines
and books published on the subject of
agriculture, and the boy who enters the
school has access to its library and be
comes acquainted with the sources from
which he may draw inspiration and
help years after he has left the school.
This is one ot the many ways in which
the school helps the boy to help himself
—the best thing after all any school
can do.
The broader intelligence gained by
the student will enable him to see that
farming, like all other industries, is
materially affected by changing eco
nomic conditions, and that today, the
general diversified farming of a few
years ago is not always the wisest and
most paying method to be employed in
this age of specialization, and is to a
large extent being supplanted by inten
sive or special farming, whereby the
farmer becomes a specialist, and throws
his major energies into one line of
work, modifying it to suit the varia
tions of supply and demand.
In its instruction concerning the best
methods of culture and harvesting, soil
adaptation to special crops, the best
methods of fertilization, a wise system
of crop rotation, the highest ideals in
raising farm animals and in the con
struction of farm buildings, the use of
ensilage, and a wise marketing of farm
produce, the school aims to give the
student the general knowledge upon
which even a successful specialization
depends.
The school deals with the modern
problems of the farmer, teaching the
causes of tuberculosis among cattle, its
methods of detection, and its prevent
atives urging under the latter head the
necessity of sanitary barns, and demon
strating the principles of ventilation,
lighting, convenience, warmth, to be
sought after in barn building, in add ; -
tion to materials used in construction.
The building of farm silos, the uses of
cement, the building of country roads,
modern farm machinery, the care aud
breeding of animals, are a further index
to subjects covered in the two years’
work.
The question, “Will it pay to send my
boy to the Agricultural school?” is a
natural one for the farmer to ask, and
if he does not value an education except
as it increases his son’s earning capac
ity, it may be well to glance for a
moment at the results obtained from an
agricultural education.
In addition to habits of industry ac
quired by his past apprenticeship upon
the farm, the boy goes out from the
school with a knowledge of modern
methods aLd conditions of farming and
an increased intelligence with which to
cope with new conditions as they arise.
These are the three primary essentials
in ail successful businesses - technical
knowledge, business intelligence anti
industry. Thus equipped, it is safe to
predict what the future of any gradu3*u
will be.
The actual wages paid to boys before
