SQUAW FROZEN, The authorities here were notified this morning at about 9:30 o'clock that a squaw was lying dead near Kelly, the information corning front that village. Accordingly the sheriff and coroner drove down and found the squaw as stated. She was lying along side of the spur track running up from Scho field. The buck was found and brought to this city aud locked up and arrange ments made with a farmer to liaul the remains here and the corpse now lies in the undertaking rooms of Chas. Helke awaiting an inquest which will be held tomorrow. Front what can lie learned John Buffalo Head and Geo. \\ ar Club came to this city yesterday with their squaws. They got some whiskey somewhere and on their way home stopped in Schofield and also iu Kelly aud Buffalo Head claims they got more whiskey at both of these places, though today he is not in shape to tell a Aery well con nected story. He says the two squaws quarreled after they left Kelly and they were left to tight it out. That was the last lie saw of her. They have a wig wam near the river and the two bucks started for there, but became separated and Buffalo Head could not liud the wigwam and spent the night along the track. This morning lie found the squaw dead and went to Kelly and reported it. He still had over a pint of whiskey left in his bottle and this he finished, amt slept all the way while being brought here to the jail. There is no doubt but what the sqauw died from alcoholism and exposure. All the clothing she had on was part of a shirt, a thin shirt waist, a thin skirt, the latter partly pulled off her body, a cotton blanket anil shoes and stock ings. Buffalo Head served three months in jail about three years ago for heating a Pike Lake Polander. KILLED IN MILL, * Jos. Koperski, residing at 501 lloetiinger street, received fatal in juries while at work in the Barker .V Stewart mill Saturday evening, shortly before the time for closing the mill for the supper hour. He was so badly in jured that there was no hope of saving his life. He was taken to St. Mary’s hospital where he died about ten hours later w.thout regaining consciousness. He was at work hack of the gang saw, taking lumber away from the saws and it is presumed ilfal a piece of slab got caught either in the saws or live rollfers and that in attempting to loosen it, it was thrown up with such force as to knock him down. The left side of his skull and whole loft side of his face was crushed in. He had been employed by the com puny for about twenty years and it was liis intention to give up mill work this spring and cultivate - small farm he owned just east of the city. He was forty-seven years of age, industrious and father of a large family of children, ten of whom survive him. A number of them have grown up so they can help their mother support the others. Deceased had lived in this city a great many years, lie was a member of the M. VV. A. and bis pall bearers at. the funeral this morning were members of that, order. The services were con ducted in St. Michael’s church. HASKIN-GILKEY. The wedding of Miss Madge llaskin and Mr. George 1,. Gilkey was an im portant. event in the past week’s social circles. The wedding was performed last Wednesday morning at 8:30 o’clock, April 3rd, 1907, in St. Johns’ Episcopal church by Rev. Fr. E. M. Thompson, rector of the church. Miss Myrtle Haskin, sister of the bride, was brides lmtile and Albert Dean, of Chicago, groomsman. A wedding march flout the pipe organ told that the appointed hour was at hand. The bride and her bridesmaid made their way up the ailse aud were met at the altar by the groom and his best man and Rev. Fr. Thomp son who performed the ceremony, very impressively, according to the ritual of the Episcopal church Duly relatives and a few intimate friends of the con tracting parties were present. After the ceremony a wedding repast was served at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. James llaskin, 718 Third street, and at its conclusion, Mr. and Mrs. Gilkey departed ou a brief wedding trip, going from here to Oshkosh, where they were tendered a reception, by the groom’s parents, at the Twentieth Century club house. They will he at home to their friends, after June Ist, at Merrill, Wis., where they will reside.

She was graduated from our high school, class 1900; also was graduated from the kindergarten department of the Mil waukee Normal sclioo’ and had charge of the kindergarten departments of the Franklin and Lincoln schools in t his city i.ntil recently, when she resigned.

RESIDENCE SALE. Mrs. E. V. Speer disposed of her resi dence, at the corner of Fifth and Fulton streets, last week to W. H Thom, who will take possession altout the middle of June. She is thinking ot going to Mil waukee to reside. Airs. Speer ha per formed a great work during her life in Wausau. Possessing unusual musical ability and being a very able pianist, she has worked incessantly fur the improvement of the musical condi tions of our city, anil her labors have proven eminently successful. Wausau owes a greet deal to Mrs. Speer for its musical advancement and should she conclude to go elsewhere, the loss to the community eoulil hardly be esti mated. It is hoped that Wausau will continue to be her home. DEDICATORY EXERCISES. j | Wausau’s Free Public Library Form ally Openecl -Ihe library budding, which has lieen in process of construction for nearly a year, is at last completed, books have been moved into it and it is now open to the public. Ou Wednesday evening last the contractors turned it oyer to the city amt dedicatory exer cises followed in the opera house, at which there was a very large attend ance, every seat being taken. The program at the opera house was slow in starting, to give as many as possible an opportunity of getting seats and hearing all ol it. A baud of eighteen pieces occupied the stage as the curtain went up and played two pieces, then moving off to the w ings, allowing others who were to assist in the program to seat themselves on the stage. Louis Marchetti then asked the audi ence to assist in singing “America” and a large flag was raised upon the rear of the stage, making a tilting tableaux for an occasion of this kind. Mr. Marchetti then made an intro ductory address. The fact that the pioneers who settled in Wausau about sixty years ago made their tirst home at or near where the public library stands, it is i>.p titling that a house should be erected there as a monument to the late Walter D. Melmtoe, who gave \\ ausau its name aud who founded what has grown into a flourishing city of 15,000 people. The opening o a good library is evi dence of a higher culture. It is educa tion, mental and moral training which distinguishes the civilized man from the barbarian. Man is superior to all other creatures because lie has been given the gift of language and by means of t his gift he advances and progresses. 't here are two kinds of lunguages spoken and written. The spoken lan guage of a master orator will sway multitudes hut is limited to the com pass of the speaker’s voice, while thoughts expressed in the written lan guage are borne to the minds of mill ions of living, to multitudes yet unborn. It L the library which preserves the written language. That a better social condition may be attained it is neces sary to educate the children of today, who will he the men anil women of tomorrow. The school can only pre pare the child for the broader practical education which the man and woman acquire in the pursuits of life. The more advanced in' thought, the higher in culture and character of the masses, just so much higher rises the govern ment and the comfort and happiness of" a people. The public library supple ments the work begun by the school. Not underestimating the value of good newspapers and periodicals, still the public library has its advantage of fur nishing intellectual food while giving to readers hours of intellectual recre ation after a day’s work. In the words of Carlisle, “The true university of these days is a collection of books.” To have a library if is necessary to have :. place where it can be housed. The donation from Andrew Carnegie w""’ accepted that we might have such a building. No conditions were at tached to the donation oilier than that the library should lie maintained and if our citizens ever allow toe building to go by default they will bring shame upon tin* city. The donation was ac cepted in the hope that much good would come to it. The effect has been that donations nearly equal to the origi nal have since come from Wausau citi zens. Ami Walter Alexander’s dona tion of a site has made it possible for Wausau citizens to have a park and beauty spot for all time indie heart of the city I’lie building and its cor.touts is owned by all Wausau people, n it by one, man or any set of men. The same building, with the ground on which it stands, cannot be repro duced for $50,000 and nowhere in the state, excepting Milwaukee, can so fine a library site be found. That park should he made the linest spot iti Wan* sau. It should lie a place where a wqt kiygman returning home from his daily tint (“fin look tVpon with pleasure; where a mother may take her children on a summer’s afternoon and show them the beauty of the flower beds, trees, ele. The persons who assisted the library board with donations have the thanks of that board, but more valuable than the gratitude thus expressed is the consciousness of having aided in the accomplishment and the feeling of satisfaction of having performed a good deed. The work is not all completed, more funds are needed and everybody should contribute his mite. Following Mr. Murelietti’s remarks the high school girls’s glee club sang a song. S. B. Tobey then told of “The Rela tions Between the School and the Library:” He said that the noblest thoughts of the purest and sweetest souls the earth has known are to he found in the library. The loftiest flights of imagination, the profoundest conceptions of truth are preserved in bonus. In them are enshrined the holiest affections of tne heart. A mine of wealth richer than any of the Klon dike is buried there, lint who shall open the blind eyes of wandering chil dren and direct them to this fountain of inspiration and awaken in them a thirst tor reading? A teacher may pul a child through a geography of the Hawaiian islands and will have done something for him, but if that teacher in addition pr evails upon the student to read “A Little Journey to Hawaii” or “Alice’s Visit to the Hawaiian Islands’’ the child is given an opportunity of getting a better conception of our Paeilic possessions. The books men tioned teach him many things about those islands which no text hook men tions. The teacher of literature who keeps his pupils within the coniines of the text books will never develop in their minds a love for the st udy. In reading the books of any writer we lose much unless we also study the life of tiic author and the library is in this respect iudispensible. In the study of history the hare facts of historical events arc given and that is about all. The boy learns the dates and looks, upon the study a- an ordeal. He may be able to tell when Napoleon was horn and died and docs not care much about the French general’s biography. But give him “Napoleon anti His Marshals” to read and lie becomes interested and follows the fortunes of the Little Corporal through out his career. But a library to be of the most heuetit must have its books properly classified and indexed. The highest and most important end and aim of education is character amt the l*est use of the library is in character building. Who can estimate the silent, resistless influence of a good book? It has a wonderful influence upon the minds of the young in ’directing them to higher character, ambition. Five thousand children in \\ ausau are to influenced directly or indirectly by this library. They constitute the dearest treasures that our citizens possess. If we are wise enough to know that hoys and girls are going through a develop ment amt that no amount of forcing of isioks upon them which they do not like will contrihuteto their knowledge or character, we shall have cause to rejoice that they are given the privilege which this library affords. Chas. E. Turner told of bow “A Man of Business Views the Library.’’ Hi* said “There is Live Work for Live Men" would be a good motto for the business men of Wausau to follow regarding our library. Carnegie may plant a splendid home for our library. He may till the soil, ami plant the seed, but the harvest must come only when the citizenship of Wausau, the good, live citizenship has asserted itself. If any business man in Wausau is so chained to the chariot wheels of busi i ness that he can get his mind on nothing else but the chase for dollars, then he is to le pitied. They ought to feel proud of our library. If business men’s taxes are increased by virtue of this bniiding they are recompensed by the increased J neat ion si advantages afforded. His children will need all. educational influences they can get. The man’s earning capacity is increased by how much be knows and the library tßaby Buggies. .5- and Go-Carts All Kinds All Sizes Call and look over our stock when \ \ desirous of making a purchase RITTER & DEUTSCH 7 uneral Directors and Embalmers 206-208 Third Street affords the boy the opportunity of ac quiring greater knowledge. In the establishment of the public lib rary, well equipped, and all that it means, standing as it does for rt-iine ment aud culture; standing as it does for highest, truest and best things in the community, it is important for the best development of the nest citizenship of VVausau. The high school mixed chorus then rendered “The Two Grenadiers” at the conclusion of which C. B. Bird spoke of "VV ausau of the Future.” He said he could make any predictions lie pleased, for if they did not come to pass people would forget what he had said, but if they did come to pass he would remind them of his prediction. For the person of middle age who has not the habit of reading good books, tbe library will make but little change, but the young people will he influenced by it. It has been predicted that in 25 years the Wisconsin river valley will be as thickly populated as is the Fox river valley today. That may come true. We have no use for grand juries here because our public ollicials are honest. We are situated in a territory which is growing more rapidly than any other of the state. We have the natural ud vantages but must improve our oppor tunities. We need more breathing room iu the way of parks. When towns are. iu their infancy the people do not, as a rule, look far enough ahead to kno.v the value of parks at some future time and they make no reserva tion 6f land for para purposes. Oc.v library needs more room and now is the time to secure additional land before land values go higher. The speaker called attention to the fact that we have arrived at the street car age, but that the early sett lers of VVausau made a mistake iu not provid ing wider streets. Let us profit by tin* past and as we build from day to day let our eyes be cast toward the future. Let each one in his own way do some thing to help build up Ihe city and let that building be intelligent and far sighted so that when we have joined the great majority our children can say that we left them a valuable heritage. “This, in short, is all 1 can say with reference to the future of Wausau. Ii is to he what we make it. Let. us each do our share to make it right.” The suggestion made by Mr. Bird that more land be purchased for the library caused S. M. Quaw to arise near the close of the meeting and offer a resolution importuning tin* city conned to purchase the Lemke property just west of the library grounds. G. D. Jones said it gave him pleasure to second the motion and an expression of opinion by voting aye or nay was called for, resulting iu a unanimous vote of aye. Thus closed tin* meeting. (>ur space is to limited too give a de tailed description of the building or a history of Ihe library movement in this city, but we can say that the structure is oue of the most substantial in Watt sau. To those who have labored long, sometimes under very discouraging circumstances, to secure a home for our library, great credit is due. We could hardly mention any one or number of persons to whom credit isj due without slighting others, but the building committed) we think, lias per formed its wook well, in seeing that a building, almost perfect in detail of plans, is erected. Those who conceived the idea of asking Andrew Carnegie for the donation; those who brought the matter of acceptance before ihe council; those who have since labored to bring plans to completion and those who gave of their funds to help the work along, all are deserving praise. There are at present over (1,000 volumes of well chosen books in the library ami their use will grow and grow as the years pass. If the I.emke property is purchased, as it no doubt will be, and a retaining wall built at the west side and the low place tilled up and planted to trees, shrubbery, flowers, etc., it can he made a beauty spot which will lie admired by every stranger coming within our gales. And it should he made such Contractors and builders take notie. : Lucbebow it Nichol have received a oar load of fresh lime today. Ready=to-Wear Bargains . . . FOR . . .
