OFFICIAL CITY PAPER WAUSAU (TRIAL ORCHARD Articles in Regard to It From the Pen of Frederic Cranefield, Secretary of the Wisconsin State Horticultural Society. ARTICLE no. 8 Nearly all of the apples which come into Wausau from local orchards are Duchess. During August and a part of September the stores are loaded with Duchess apples aud from one to a dozen farm wagons peddle Duchess from bouse to house. Naturally prices go dowu aud farmers will tell you that there is no mon y iu raising apples. Now if a little, just a very little, common sense was used in planting orchards and handling the crop, this annual glut could be avoided, the grower would get better prices and the apple buying pub lic be better served. Instead of ever lasting planting Duchess and other fall apples, plant more Dudley, Wealthy, Longfield and Northwestern Greening, especially Wealthy. The Wealthy will do well around W ausau, it comes into bearing early and if the fruit is kept free from worms and properly handled, will keep until Christmas or longer. Even with the Duchess much can be done to lengthen the season, if the trees are heavily loaded, at least 4 of the fruit should be picked when partly colored or about f full grown. This fruit can usually be sold to od advan tage as almost any kind are acceptable for cooking at that time. When the crop ripens, if the market is full, pick the apples carefully, pack in boxes or barrels and store in a cool cel lar. The length of time these will keep will depend on the care with which the fruit was handled. Apples for storage should be handled in ail respects like eggs. An egg that should drop the heighth of the average tree-top to the ground would scarcely be in good con dition for storage. While the bruised apple may not show the damage so readily it is there just the same. Sound J BAD RUNAWAY. Last Tuesday afternoon, John Glasel of the town of Wausau, had a bad run away while in the city. He purchased a stove and some furniture, a lot of groceries aud other articles aud was about ready to start for home. He hitched the team to a post iu front of the Pfeifer & Klecker meat market while doing some more trading, wheu a lady passed by with a baby carriage which frightened the horses. They broke loose aud started down Scott St at a mad pace, scatteriug the articles iu the wagou all aloog the street. At the corner of Sixth aud Scott streets they ran into a tire hydrant and broke the same off the pipe. They continued on their course a block further, when they straddled one of Joe Lohmar’s shade trees, bringing them to a halt. Oue horse had the harness completely stripped off. They were going at such a rate of speed that the impact of the wagon tongue tore the bark off the tree for a s ace of about three feet, and the sudden stop somewhat demolisued the wagon. As soon as the ore hydrant was broken off, the water gushed out and soon a small sized creek: was flow ing down the street. The water Cb}' partmeut was notified and the water in that main was shut off. A crew of men worked all night iu putting io anew pipe. The team was anew one Mr. Gleasel lately purchased. His wife accompanied him to town aud it was lucky mat neither were in the wagon at the time of the runaway. NOTICE TO SIDEWALK CON TRACTORS. Notice is hereby given that sealed bids will be received by the Board of Public Works up to 12 o’clock noon, of July Ist, 1907, for the construction of about 3460 square feet of cement side walk along the south and east sides of Mdndoe Park in the city of Wausau. Plans and specification for said pro posed sidewalk are on tile iu the office of the City Engineer. The Board re serves the right to reject any aud all Lids. Dated this 18tb day of June, 1907. M. H. Duncan, C. A Nuttek, H. E. Marquardt. Wa usm v J@i Pil\t. Duchess apples should keep 4 to 6 weeks in a cool cellar. Cellar storage of the fall apple crop will help somewhat but as stated before the real solution lies in planting more Wealthy and later matur ing varieties. I am well satisfied that small orchards ) say of 100 to 500 trees, about Wausau will pay. I base my belief on observa tions of the Wausau market for several years. Ask your storekeeper where the apples come from that he sells in Octo ber, November and December and the prices he pays and then do a little think ing. When through thinking, look over the Wausau trial orchard which has been planted for your benefit. If you think of buying fruit trees this summer or fall for fall plautiug, don’t. Fall planting is poor business in Wis consin. It may work all right farther south but not here. The arguments of the nurseryman who advises you to plant in the fail are merely in his own interest. He wants to get the stock oil his hands to save storing it and get your money into his bank. If be knows Wisconsin conditions he knows better that to advise fall''planting. If he is honest he will not do it. Early spring planting is the proper thing. All of the trees in the Wausau trial orchard (10 acres) were delivered and planted in the spring. Go out and look at the orchard while it still belongs to you. Frederic Cranefield, Bec. Wis. State Hort. Soc’y. P. S.—A word about the tree agents aud uutcerymep: There are many dis honest agents as well as dishonest farm ers ud merchants and bankers and lawyers, etc., but all are not dishonest. A word about both kinds iu a future issue. F. C. RACES FOR FOURTH. Some time ago the officers of the Marathon County Agricultural society submitted a proposition to the directors of the Wausau Base Ball association to conduct a Fourth of July celebration jointly, sharing the profits equally. Several meetings were held but no deti cite action taken. As there seemed to be little hope of the latter organization entering the deal, a similar proposition was later made to the Wausau Driving association and it has been accepted. It has been decided to give a racing matinee at the fair grounds on that day, for which four races have been arranged as follows: MATCH RACE. Mile Heats, best 2 in 3. Cleaver, owned by Jno. Coleman.

Disease Destroys the Best Forces ol Body and Mind- .No man with good judgment sill ex penmen t when his health is to he weighed in the balance, but every day thousands of men take risks by believ ing the misleading statements of those who use uncertain methods of treat ment. A long train of nervous diseases and chronic afflictions follow as a re sult of over-work, excesses or early errors, and complete incapacity, mental derangement physical helplessness re sult unless the progress of the malady is arrested by timely skill. The man who has violated the laws of bealttr'should lose no time in seeking the best treatment for bis case. He should seek a specialist who considers every point in his case, modifies the treatment to meet every iudidation, and uses special means in such manuer as to supply the nerve force and restore the powers of the body. Experience talks, and the eminent specialist. Dr. L. M. Turbin, of Chicago, has proven his ability to successfully overcome the conditions present in the cases where men have waited until they are almost bourne down the rapids of physical destruction; which carry so many annually to unnecessary, prema ture graves. The correct medical methods em ployed by Dr. Turbin in moat cases give quick and permanent relief. The many marvelous cures he has brought about among our friends and neighbors are proof conclusive that Dr. Turbin u tbe physician to consult when in need of medical attendance. Every individ ual case is managed according to the special conditions, the right method of treatment is employed, and the result is satisfactory. Dr. Turbin has visited our city for the oast fifteen years and may be consulted freely, in person, when he again visits Wausau, Tuesday, July 2nd at the Beilis hotel. WAIISAVI, Wla.i TIIESPAY, JUNE 23, 1907. LOSS OF $65,000 IN TWO DAYS. On Tuesday evening last a watch man in the Hoeniscb sa w mill dis covered that the of the Wausau Quartz Cos. wae on tire and he lost no time in notifying the fire department and also sounding the mill whistle. The night was warm and many people were still out on the streets or sitting on the porches of their homes. The disastrous tire of the day before, when the Wausau Box aud Lumber Co.’s plant was entirely destroyed, caused them to fear another disaster and hun dreds started out to seek the cause of the alarm. They soon saw ti>at the whole southwestern portion of the city was illuminated and that a large tire was in progress. At first it was thought that either the veneer mill or Curtis & Yale’s factory No. 2 was ablaze. In vestigation proved it tp be the plant mentioned above. The run for each tire department was a long one and by the time they got there the flames had made such progress in the destruction of the plant that there was practically no hope of saving it. Again, as at the tire of Monday, there was insufficient water pressure. Al though factory and mill owuers hare thousands ot dollars invested iu facto ries and stocks in that locality, they have a tire protection that is uot worthy of the name. Here, again, the city has followed its impecunious-like policy of laying small water mains. Within a very short time the flames bad licked up the last vestige of the buildings and reduced them to ashes. The origin of the tire can only be guessed at. There had been no tire under the boilers for six weeks past, and during that time men had been en gaged in overhauling the mill and in setting up new machinery, which would give the institution an increased capacity. It was intended to start work again some time this week. The plant was erected in 1897 by F. P. Corwith, H. T. Moulton, and Henry French. Since then the company has twice been re-organized and at the time of the tire the plant was controlled by 1). J. Murray, C. 0. Yawkey, W. L. Eumonds, H. G. Flietb, A. L Kreutzer, C. B. Bird, M. B. Rosenberry, all of this city; Senator Stout of Menomonie; W. H. Hatten of New Loudon aud Brown Bros, of Rhinelander. A meeting of the stockdolders will be called soon to determine a course as to future plans. The factory has been a fairly profitable institution, with an abundance of raw material at baud and it may be rebuilt. The loss is estimated at about $15,000, which with the destruc tion of the Wausau Box and Lumber Co.’s plant, makes a Are loss to the city of about $65,000 in less than two days’ time. It was a fortunate thing that there was no wind blowing at the time Had there been a high wind like the day before, sparks might have been car ried to numerous other factories in that section, as well as dwelling houses The Wausau Quartz Cos. employed about twenty-hve men and the mill was operated steadily throughout the year except when repairs were neces sary. STREET R. R. NOTES. I'or the past two weeks the work of extending tbe Wausau Street Railway Co.’s lines has beeu retarded because of not having any ties. Toward the latter part of the week they began to arrive and from now on it is expected that the work will proceed without a hitch. Linemen began stretching trolley wire northward on Third street from the Washington street corner last week. The wire will be strung as far north as Chicago Ave. at present and it is likely that work of extending the line up Third street to connect with that phrt built north of the St. Paul tracks last fall, will begin soon. . Two more open or summer cars arrived in the city last week and will be mounted on trucks and put in ser vice. They have no motors and will be run as trailers. Unlike the other two previously shipped here they have re versible seats. They came off the liue of Twin City Rapid Transit Cos., doing business in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Their first service will probably be on July 4th. The long expected steel for the. Wash ington street and Third Ave. crossings arrived the latter part of the v/eek and was laid Sunday. For the present the car liue will only run south on Third Ave. as tar as two blocks beyond the intersection of Gar field Ave. The patronage of the line holds up well and promises to continue so This means of transportation meets favor with picnic parties aud others desiring to spend a day in the woods and along tbe river near Schofield. An oft heard question propounded by tbe gentler sex is, "Have you trolleyed yet V All day Sundays the cars are crowded with people going back and forth between the city and Schofield. MARRIED, Miss Nellie May Adams and Martin F. Fogarty, Jr, were married at the home of the bride's parents in Ingram, Wts., last week, Monday. Tbe Ingram Record says of tbe young people “ The bride is the daughter of one of Ingram’s most respected people, and is very popular and highly esteemed by all who know her. The groom is from Wausau and enjoys a large cir cle of friends here.” Mr. Fogarty is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Fogarty, of this city. They will reside in Hannibal, Wis. FIRE INSURANCE, Kretiow & Lament wish to announce that they are prepared to write fire insurance in approved stock companies at reasonable rates. They also place plate glass and boiler insurance and surety bonds. First National Bank building- ’Phone 1033. 120-tf - WESTERN LOGGING. L. K Wright Tells of Conditions .n the Oregon Lumber Region. Portland, Ore., June Friend ’Gene:— Since writiug you last I have had an opportunity to see something of Oregon logging, au account of which may be of interest to those unfamiliar with west ern logging. In company with F. C. Knapp, manager of the Peuiusula Lum ber Cos., of St. Johns, 1 vHteu their camps at Columbia City. This is the company of which C. C. Barker is presi dent aud H. C. Stewart vice-president. Columbia City is ou the river of that name, about 32 miles below Portland, file camp is back from the river about three miles and is reached by the com pany’s railroad, which runs back about tire miles into the timber. This road is equipped with three engines and about 30 logging cars; the trucks of each car and the cars themselves, are coupled with 12 foot couplers, as ail the logs are cut from 24 to 80 feet in length. Whtn I uot loaded the couplings telescope into the trucks, makiug a short train easily handled. The camps consist of a num ber of small board shanties, with bunks for eight men to a shauty, iustead of the large unsanitary camps seen in Wiscon sin. The other buildings are similar to our own. The “chuck” is good and real butter is furnished in place of “oleo.” Oue hundred and twenty-five men are employed, including two crews of section hands (20 Italians) and 17 railroad construction hands (Austrians) This class of ‘‘American labor,” boards itself aud lives in tents, out on the line froju the camp. The timber the com pany is working in, is principally red fir, with some yellow and bastard tir and red cedar. They also have some white fir which goes to the paper mills The timber is small for this country, a tree cutting six or eight thousand feet beiug a big one, but it stands thick and runs about 50 M to the acre. The cedar butts go to the mill for shingle umber and the tops and small red tir iuto piling timber. 120 M feet is an average daily cut. Probably the greatest problem at this camp is water. The three locomotive engines and the donkey engines drink a great deal of this and it has to be piped and forced back into the woods with a lifting ram or pump. I think this camp has five big donkey logging engines aud three small donkey loaders. One of the large ones being used iu moving cars'. A large denkey crew consists of engiueer, fireman aud wood buck, while one man performs the trinity of occupations for the small donkey. So much for the camp, crew, timber aud equipment, the actual logging I wJI attempt to follow from the tree to tb*tnH: The falling is done by seven gangs of fallers, a head faller and assistant to each gang. The rough ground and large butts, necessitates the use of spriug boards, a notch beiug cut into the tree on each side, in which boards with iron shoes are put, so that the fallers are the same heighth from the ground. The tree is first notched with the saw aud the notch cut out. the head faller sighting along axe blade and saw handle, to fall the tree where he wants h. aii me timber is felled io straight lines away from the “yard* 4 where the donkey is placed and when a strip ifc dowu the trees lie as straight as cut graiu and there is hardly ground enough to fall it ou. After the notching, the tree is sawed and this struck me as the hardest work on the job, as the big trees run gallons of pitch and it is all the men cau and. to pull the saw, care is taken to keep the cut even, the fallers calling to each other how many inches they have left. Stumps are about four or five feet high, instead of double that heighth as was the custom before the eastern mill men arrived. Following the fallers, come 15 buckers or sawyers. These sawyers work singly and as the timber goes mostly into long logs, two buckers cau about keep up with a gang of fallers. Anew thing to me aud one which I think could be used in the Wisconsin hemlock, where the saw so often biuds, is the “under cutter.” This is a two foot bar with two dogs, which are driven into a log, wheu the saw pinches or wheu the cut cannot be made from the top, there is a clamp at the bottom of the bar which holds a short shaft ou which a corru gated wheel runs. The back of the saw rests on tips wheel aud the sawyer saws from the bottom of the log. The bar is moved further up the log as occasion demands. A large portion of the saw yers work is swamping a place to do bis sawing. A good crew of fallers in this timber will fall from 15 to 25 M per day, whjle a good bucker will saw about 10 to 15 M per day. Before speaking of the woik of get ting the logs to tbe skidways 1 must speak of the skidways and donkeys. The skidways are a big proposition, they have to be built up sometimes 20 or 30 feet at the rear and very solid, large timbers are used and the end where tbe logs are pulled on have in clines of long logs. The timbers in a platform are often worn clear through and must be replaced before they are abandoned. In connection with each platform or skidway, are two doukeys, a small one for loading cars and a large one for puliing in tbe logs. The large engine has two drums or spools, on which the cables are wound On one drum runs the heavy wire caOle which pulls in the log, on the other is a smaller cable to pull the large cable back into tbe woods. This small cable runs through pulleys, attached to stumps and trees. The logs are pulled onto the platform with the large cable, a distance of 1,500 feet, in all directions. This whole area is called a yard or set ting. It will be seen that over a quar ter section of land can be iogn *i in one setting, if the formation of tbe ground will pesmit and as some quarters will go eighteen million feet, you will have an idea ai the amount of timber that can go to a skidway. In addition to the two cables 1 speak of there is a sig nal wire, on which the men in the woods signal the engineer of the doukey, whether to pull in or slack back. A crew to get the logs to the skidway has oue hook tender, who attaches the cable to the log, two rig ging rustlers, to pull the cable where wanted, oue swamper aud a whistle boy. The hook tender gives two short shouts to pull in the cable and one to slack back. These signals, the whistle boy transmits to the engineer, by pounding the signal wire. If the signal is to “pull in,” the log starts and one of the men called the “chase! 1 ” starts after it and follows it in to see that nothing fouls or goes wrong. The chaser has a wire running to the signal wire, so he can signal the engineer, when out of hearing of the signal boy. This chaser is said to earn his money during the rainy season. The sniper is a man who rounds the ends of the logs with his axe so they won’t plough into the ground too much. The plat form crew consists of a first and second loader, all this work is done by machinery, the loaders only placing hooks and cables. The cars loaded and ready for the train are then hauled out to the river, eight cars to a train and talk about your busy brakemen; up hill and down. Mr. brakey is bounding on and off the cars, setting and loosening brakes, all done from the side of th* train. At the landing the cars run onto a platform which tilts up and then a crane, book and tackles dumps them into a pocket from which they are run into the raft sticks and the rafts towed to the mill. So far, wood has been the fuel for the locomotives but the company have just completed au oil tauk aud dock, so the oil scows can land and the oii will theu be pumped through pipe line to the tank. This trip was very interesting to me and with some variations, is typical of all logging out here. A schedule of the w ges paid at this camp may be of interest, but the greatly increased cost of living here should be considered: Donkey engineers $2 75 to $3 o 0 per day Rigging rusllers 275 to 325 “ “ Chaser 325 " “ Rollway men 336 to 350 “ ‘ Donkey firemen 250 to 275 “ “ Wood buck era 250 to 30u “ “ Whistle boy 175 to 200 “ “ Buckers 3 25 .... Swampers 175 to 275 “ “ Snipers 300 to 350 “ “ Hook tenders 4uO to 500 “ “ Locomotive engineers 350 to 385 “ “ “ firemen 275 “ “ Brakemen 325 “ “ Loaders 350 to 400 “ “ Blacksmiths 300 to 350 “ “ . “ helpers 250 to 275 ” “ First fallers 325 to 376 “ “ Second fallers 3 25 .... Saw filers (special men tor tbist... 350 “ “ Section men (2 25 to 250 “ “ Graders 225 to 275 “* “ Boom men 275 to 300 “ “ After the timber is cut the land is left much cleaner than cut over laud with us, as the timber cuts clean and the lops do uot litter up the ground one-fourth as much as ours. I cannot attempt to describe the beauty of the river, which is 18 feet above low water mark just qow. I will tell you also of the wheat country of the Paulouse and Willa Walla valleys, in eastern Washington, which 1 saw on a trip to Colfax and Walla Walla. I have read, and the natives tell, of the 40 bushels per acre crops of wheat, which are harvested year in and year out in this district. I talked with farmers and think I got the facts. For a great many years, wheat has been grown on this laud, Which is quite hilly. They discovered the crops were growing smaller and of late years they have practiced a system of summer fallowing. The land cropped one year is idle the next but is plowed aud worked over several times, the weeds being nearly exterminated in this way. It is then sowed in the fall and the next year yields from 26 to 4u bushel of wheat per acre. The wheat is soft. F’ine barley is also raised. The farms are very large, often comprising whole flections. The grain is now Beaded out aud looks well. With SI.OO wheat in Chicago, eastern Oregon wheat worth about 70 cents. All the wheat is jacked direct from the thresher and most of it goes to the Pacific for ship ment. With proper elevator facilities aud up to-date grain carriers on the Pacific, a saving of 5 cents per bushel will be made on the sacking charge. How much the completion of the Pana ma canal .will mean to these farmers 1 will not attempt to say, but it will be milliuus, annually. This is almost ex clusively $ graiu country, although I saw some good orchards in the Palouse country. Un this trip I journeyed ou the Oregon Railway and Navigation R. R, a Harriman line. This road fallows the south bank of the Columbia aud the scenery is tine. Across the river, close- Ij following the north bank, is the tine grede of Jim Hill’s N. P. liue, running Iron Pasco, YYasb., to Portland, and crossing the Columbia, at Vancouver, where a great bridge is being built. At St. Johns, a suburb of Portland, it crosses the Willamette with another mighty structure. 1 have discovered an unpleasant feature of Portland. Tiring of my mother-in-law’s cooking, I undertook to inquire for rooms aud houses aud found I must get rid of the children be fore securing anything in this line. I know miaaouary money is often sent to Africa, where the natives insist on feed ing children to the crocodiles, to appease the anger of their gods, but here iu Portland tbe landlords insist ou destroying tfie childreu and unlike tbe African deities won’t furnish the crocodiles. Perhaps you will use your influence to have soms of the foreign mission money expended iu christianiz iug the benighted Portland landlords. 1 have met a number of old Wausau residents in Portland lately, among them beiug D. A. Sau born who has offices at 5954 Ist street; Joe Feicht and his sister, Mrs. John Lutzenberger, who live at 945 Vancouver Ave., and Aug Schiaviuski, the latter and Joe Feicht work iu tbe S. Pacific freight depot. Mrs. Paul Powers, formerly Mildred Son ill, whose husband is manager of tbe Cowi#tz County Lumber company, lives at 18th and Everett streets; her brother George is at Spokane. , 1 also met Bob McCoukcy tbe other da;.

Pare joy! to see tbe forest flower, Wake to the light, tbe dew, tbe shower. To ope beside tbe foaming broox Among tbe ferns of rocky nock Not 1 one tender stem to break From parent leaves, one flower to take From out tbe gieu, a withered bloom To press with!a a manual tomb; No more to breeze fresh petals swing Their fragrance wide, for love of Spring,— Spirit of Light! Not I, to do the thoughtless thing. Pure love! to watch the dragon fly On jeweled wings go sailing by, - Or dream In trance on swaying reed. Along the flowery wind-swept mead. Not 1, !n weuton chase to grabp Its brilliant shape, to rudely claap, To pin and name, on numbered board, Its brittle form to be adorned;— No more in life, ou gauzy wing To woo, to r.lueflag Tightly cling,— Spirit of Lore! Not I, to do the useless thing. Pure bliss! to bear the song of bird, To selfish ears joys half unheard; , To hear sweet trills at rosy dawn, Glad Wildwood songs to dream upon. Not I, one happy bird to catch, To leave lone mate or helpless batch,. To mount dead form o'er twigs and moss, One loved voice still’d, to earth a loss.— No more with life to gayly wing O’er brooding mate to blitneiy sing ; Spirit of Life! Not I, to do this sinful thing. SIOO Reward. SIOO.
