Believing that anything bearing on the topic ot paving wilt be of interest to Wausau people, inasmuch as the Third street paviug question is yet un sealed, we take the liberty to publish the results of experience iu a neighbor ing state. Up on the copper range, at Red Jacket, Mich., a creosotcd wood block pavement was laid by a con tractor who secured his blocks from the Kettle River Quairiea (Jo., the same farm which would have furnished the blocks for tfae Third street paving had the council not reciuded former action, and a contract been signed. At the time the pavement was laid a sand tiller was used and the result has been that when the sand got wet it swelled the blocks and they bulged up, making a very bad street. The contractor was appealed to and he iu turn sought aid of tbe Ke.4J.le River people, with the re sult that the manufacturers authorized him to tear up the street and re-lay the blocks without auy expense to auyoue but tbe company. Had a contract been drawn up with this concern or its contracting agent for a pavement for Third street, a cement or asphalt tiller would have been specified. Experiments have showu that when auy other tiller is used except sand the blocks have proven satisfactory as a paving material. PASSED RESOLUTION, At a receut meetiug of the library board the resignation of Miss Nelli? Silverthoi u as librarian was considered As Miss Silvertboru informed the board that her term of service had beeu so long she desired a release from her duties, there Mas no other action for board to take than to accept the resig nation, though the board did so un williugiy. During the years Miss tiilvertborn has been librarian she has performed her duties with efficiency and ability and iu recognition of such the board passed the following resolu tion: Whereas, our highly esteemed li brarmu, Miss Nellie bilverthoru, has tendered her resignation and we have felt compelled under the eircumstaces to accept the same, therefore be it by the board of directors of the W ausau library, Resolved, that we regret the necessity of severing the pleasaut relations which have existed for years betweeu Miss Silvertborn as the librarian and this library board during the years of her valuable services devoted to library work, and be it further. Resolved, that our best wishes aud our highest comuieudatiou go with Miss Silverthoru to any uew held of labor of her choice. As yet uo choice has been made for Miss Silverthoin’a successor. The board has written to a young lady who has been recommended, but has uot re ceived a reply. AGAIN THE TRUST.

J l4 Svatt St. OFFICIAL CITY PAPER WAUSAU TRIAL ORCHARD Articles in Regard to It From the Pen of Frederic Oanefield, Secretary of the Wisconsin State Horticultural Society. ARTICLE NO. 7 There is a small orchard of about fifty trees near Wausau that I have watched with much interest for three years. The greater part of the trees were planted in the spring of 1904; fane, thrifty trees bearing the label of one of our best Wisconsin nurseries. The man agement of this little orchard has been a succession of mistakes so obvious that to one familiar with fruit growing it would almost seem that these had been deliberately planned. The site had been a garden spot previous to plant ing and heavily manured at planting time. Mistake No. 1. Fruit trees, especially apple, require but maderateiy rich ground as au ex cess of fertility induces too rapid growth and growth late in the season the foimer encouraging tire-blight, the latter winter killing. Secondly the apple trees were set about twelve feet apart and the plums less than six feet. * This wbs the second mistake, for if eveu tro thirds of the trees survive the orchard in a few years will be Merely a thicket. Twenty feet is the least distauce that orchard trees should be set aud twenty-four is better. Remember that in the success ful orchard, provision must be made for team work in cultivating, spraying, etc. The orchard was seeded to timothy as sue r> as olanted aud a heavy crop of hay cut each season since. Owing to the original richness of the soil this was uot so serious as it would tr.ve been on ordinary farm land, but it was bad enough as it eliminated cultivation, one of the essentials iu orchard work. Mention was made of the labels on the trees; many of the trees still bear these labels much to their detriment. Nursery labels, the kind made of wood strips, are fastened to the tree with copper wire aud should be removed as soon as the tree is planted. If neglected this wire will usually gridle the tree. This has happened iu several cases in tbe orchard mentioned. ANSWERS THE SUMMONS. Henry VV. Boyer died Friday after noou at his home in Merrill after a yzar’s illuess with Blight’s disease, com plicated with gallstones. Deceased was well Known iu this city where he lived for two years, conducting a restaur ant on Washington street. He moved away from here about six years ago. Mr. Boyer was born iu Watertown, Wis , in 1845 aud when eighteen years of age enlisted ic Uo. K, Twenty-Ninth Wis. Vol. Infty. as a private. He sewed until the close of the war and then moved to Wood* county where he engaged in the logging and contracting business. He became a resident of Merrill iu 1880. In 1898 he was chosen captain of (Jo F, Fourth Regt. Wis. Vol., but though his company saw uo active tield service it returned home a well disciplined organization under his care aud management. After leaving Wausau he was appointed a deputy revenue collector, but about two years ago he was forced to resign ou accouut of failing health, aud part of the time since he had been selling insurance. Henry Boyer was a genial, whole souled mao and many there are in Wausau who mourn his death. He is aurived by bis wife, his mother, two sous, a sister and four brothers. Irving Boyer, one of his sons, is a resident of Wausau aud a well known freight con ductor on the St. Faul road. He was a member of the Odd Fel lows order, the G A. K. aud the Wood men. The funeral was held yesterday mder the direction of the Odd Fellows WILL BE HERE THIS WEEK, Frederic Cranetield, secretary of the Wis. JState Horticultural society will be iu Wausau ou Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, of this week, Juue 18tb, 19th, and 20tb, to oversee the sprajing of the Wausau trial orchard. He will he pleased to meet any interested parties at the orchard during the day time or at the Beilis House in the even iug. Wa usa u Pilot. The trees have never been pruned. It is a mistaken notion that pruning is only necessary in old trees and commonly no attention is given to the orchard until the tops become a bush heap or else split down when the axe and the saw are brought into vigorous use and the tree mutilat ed beyond recognatiou. Neither of these conditions could occur if proper attention were given to shap ing the young tree. While a treatise on pruning is impractical here, it may be said briefly that branches forming an acute angle or “fork” with the trunk should be removed leaving the branches evenly distributed around a central columu selecting those to remain which form a right angle with the trunk. Such branches will not split down when loaded with fruit. If a little judicious “jack-knife” pruning is done each spring for three or four years, the axe and saw will not be needed later. There are other mistakes in this orchard and I always feel when pass, ing that it should be labeled “Don’t” or “How Not to Raise an Orchard.” At the risk of being tiresome I venture again to call attention to the trial orchard on the Gensmann farm maintained by this;society. Not every thing is perfect there but it is a good orchard. There are difficulties con nected with managing auy business from a distance. The, managemeul of this orchard is conducted at long rauge, 175 miles, and that may account for some of the failures. However, take it as it is, good, bad, or in different it behooves the people of Marathon county to get out of it all possible good to themselves while it is still their property as it will soon pass into private ownership. Take a trip to the orchard, ask ques tions of the caretaker, aud if you do not get satisfactory replies write this office. Frederic C'ranefield, Sec. State Hort. Society, Madison, Wis. RETIRES FROM BUSINESS. Chi-s. Livingston has decided to re tire from the tirm of the Livingstou Merchautile Cos. aud will dispose of his business interests to hio partners, Sam’l aud David Livingston. This move was necessary because of the state of his health. For a number of years he has suffered more or less troub*o with his eyes and for about two years past this trouble has assumed a more aggravated form. He has visited numerous special ists and spent much time in the South, but the relief, if any, was only tempor ary. He feels that he must get out of business and take a long rest. Seventeen years ago he, with Sam’l and .David Livingstou, established a mercha.'tile business in Merrill and some years later flbey purchased the tleinemann Bros.’ store in this city, two years ago building the large store they now occupy. As before stated, Mr. Livingston will take a long rest and may later re-enter merchantile pursuits. COLD UP THERE. In The Daily Mining Gazette of the issue of June 13, published in Hough ton, Mich., is an account of a deputy revenue collector going to Isle Royale for the purpose of confiscating the cargo of the steamer Monarch, wrecked last December. The article closes as follows: “The climatic conditions in that place at the present time are the most un heard of and unusual ever experienced ther/s. Along the shore line there is still four feet of ice in many places. The, fishermen are not using the ice laid up by them for the purpose of packing their fish, but are cutting ice along the shore for that purpose, thus saving their supply for later. While at the island Mr. McCallum met a party of laud lookers for the Oliver Mining company and they reported fully two feet of snow in the interior w here they had been working. So deep was the snow in places that the use of snow shoes was found to be a necessity.” The Isle Royale is located about 180 miles north of here, in Lake Superior. The cold breezes aud snow storms we have been getting all spring no doubt came from that polar region. THE BILL BOARDS. In Graud Rapids, those who love to see their city improved and beautified have taken up the fight against the un sightly bill boards, and they hope to work enough public sentiment against them to have them removed. Wausau can uever be made a city beautiful un til bill boards are removed. Every where they obstruct the view. They are a mess of tilth with their accumula tions of paste and old bills and at the base of each, the dropping of paste form goodly sized piles which emit smells that are as rank as those which come from a slaughter house. Our people have become so used to this that the pass along without giv ing the matter a thought except to occasionally hold their breath. Those interested in beautifying our city should get after the bill board nuisance. FREE STREET CAR TICKETS. After this date anyone buying a lot in Johnson's addition and building a house thereon, beginning on or before June 15th and painting it by August 15th, 1907, will be given free street car transportation—one trip each way daily for one year—said transportation good for any one member of family.

He ary Wolf, a farmer living in the town of Easton, came to the city Thurs day and presenting himself at the county jail asked to be locked up, stat ing that he bad committed a crime. As the sheriff was not there at the time, he was directed to go up town. He went up and consulted a firm of law yers. Shortly after dinner the man’s nephew, Wm. Paulmau, came totown and in the afternoon called upon offi cials and notified them that Wolf had that morning killed his wife. Accord ingly a warrant was sworn out by the district attorney for Wolf’s arrest. During the afternoon Wolf, in company with his attorney and a physician, drove out to the scene of the murder aDd viewed the surroundings. The sheriff empaneled a coroner’s jury consisting of A. R. Bardeen, Ray Hagen, Carl Krueger, Fat Gorman, Alfred Zimmer man and Henry Ziebell and in company with the district attorney started for the Wolf ho'me. On the way out they met Wolf, the attorney and physician returning and the attorney guarantee ing the surrender of Wolf, they pro ceeded on to the home. When they reached the house a jerri- Jlle scene met their gaze. The dead woman lay upon the floor, her hands clenched aud the arms bent at tbe el bows and resting in an upright posi tion. Toe upper portion of her body was clothed only in a shirt, leaving her arms bare. Her face and arms were covered with blood, her head was rest ing in a pool of blood, there were pools of blood on the floor in various places and the whole room was more or less bespattered. Chairs were overturned aud the entire room disarranged, show ing that there had been a haru struggle. The dead woman’s head was badly cut \nd bruised. Uu the forehead there evidences of a . heavy blow, struck with a blunt instrument, for the skull was crushed iu. This blow evi deutly was the one which produced death. The kitchen dishes stood where they had been left at breakfast lime and the tragedy must have occurred shortly tfter the breakfast hour. The only weapons found was a clevis bolt and a revolver, but it is probable that chairs were used. After the coroner’s jury viewed the premises the body was turned over to an undertaker and on Friday morniog a postmortem examination was con ducted by physicians. Tbe jury viewed the remains, the physicians pointing out the cuts and bruises of which there were seventeen. None were fouud on any other part of the body except the head. Au adjournment of inquest was taken to yesterday morning. Those who know Wolf intimately were astounded at the crime. Last fall he was a candidate for the for couuty treasurer before the prim aries, but was defeated by Ernst Ringle. At present he is town clerk of his town and at various times in the past the voters have honored him with town offices. He has bqrne a good reputa tion in the past aud is well spoken of by his heigh bora. The dead woman was, before her marriage to Wolf, the widow of the late Wm. Klingbeil, of this city, a musi cian of more or less prominence. From what can be gleaned it is apparent that Wolf’s second marriage (be having been a widower) was uot a happy one, and his life since has been punctuated with frequent quarrels with his wife. LANDS SOLD WELL J. H. Dahl, state treasurer, B. J. Castle chief clerk of the land office, and Mat Lamport, a clerk in the laud cilice, spent Thursday in the city. They came down from Merrill where they sold a large number of descriptions of state lands, the total aggregating $77,990. It was the most prolitable sale ever con ducted by ,the state. A ,total of 4,120 acres were sold, which had been ap praised at $72,631, a gain of $5,369 over the appraisal. Two 40’s sold; for re spectively $1,955 and $1,600, due to the spirited bidding of Wausau, Merrill and Tomahawk real estate dealers and lumbermen. Ninety per cent, of the receipts go jinto the torestry fund, the balance into the school fund. The forestry fund is used in purchasing other lands adjacent to the state forest reserves, which will add to the lands now held by the state for forestry pur poses. The state lands disposed of are isolated tracts or swamplands. While here Messrs. Dahl and Castle were entertained by Messrs A. L. Kreutzer, H.aG. Flieth and W. C. Winton and Mr. Larapert by the family of his brother, L. Lampert. CARS TO WEST SIDE. The water wheels in the old Plumer mill are again revolving and street cars are in operation, after a short idleness. The damage to the wheels, or rather their bearings, was greater than at first supposed, but the work was finished late Friday afternoon and cars started shortly before the supper hour. Though cars had been running only two weeks previous to the accident, the service was greatly missed since the break down occurred. The crossing rails for the Washington street crossing not hav ing arrived, the company decided to wait no longer and Saturday a tempo rary crossing was made; the company’s rails were laid up to and touching the Northwestern company’s rails aud a groove chipped in the latter sufficiently large to allow the fiangr of the wheels to pass over. On Sunday cars were started to and from the west side, being run as far as the corner of Clark street and Third Ave., to which point the road has been completed. The line was liberally patronized by base ball enthu siasts that day. FIRE INSURANCE. Kretlow & Lamont wish to announce that they are prepared to write fire insurance in approved stock companies at reasonable iates. They also place plate glass and boiler insurance and surety bonds.

It is quite likely that it will be doing business before snow flies again. For some time there has been an agitation to secure a banking insti tution for the west side of the river and at present the movement is well under way. Residents of that side of the river for several weeks have been soliciting for the sale of stock and at present about $30,000 has been taken. It is pro posed to capitalize the institution at $50,000 to start off with. & The gentlemen who have been push ing the matter have found no difficulty in disposing of stock. Indeed had they sold all that has been applied for they could start a bauk with several times the capital they desire. The object, however, is to distribute the stock among as many individuals as possible, so that it will not be controlled by a few men. At present not over five shares of $l(Xl each are sold to auy one person. Quite a number of farmers have subscribed for stock. If, after the institution is duly organized, any stock holder is not satisfied with his invest ment, he can withdraw and his stock will be open for sale. If there should be then any difficulty in securing anew stockholder to take it, which there is uo liability of beiug, other stockholders can purchase it. A meeting will be called soon to per fect a temporary organization topush the matter. It will be decided later whether a building will be rented or erected, and other details will be set tled upon.

A meeting of the Marathon County Fish and Game Protective association was held Friday night in the shop of John Fehl. Matters pertaining to the objects of the association were dis cussed, though no definite action was taken. A concerted campaign against dynamiters of fish will be taken up. It has been suggested that notices he posted along streams, offering a reward for information which will lead to the conviction of violators, and also a re ward for a like service regarding any one who destroys one of these notices. A great many streams in the county are being dynamited, the most flagrant violations perhaps being on Sandy. At present every creek of importance in the county is stocked with brook or rainbow trout, and in a short time these streams would afford splendid fishing if it were not for those who use explos ives. New officers of the association will be elected soon and steps taken to increase the membership and secure the co-operation of farmers. SIOO Keward. SIOO.
