One of Wausau’s Oldest and Best Citizens Gone to His . Eternal Rest —He Passed Away on Wednesday Afternoon, December 4th. It is with deep sorrow that the Pilot is called upou this week to announce the death of Robert E. Parcher, who passed away at his home in Wausau, on Wednesday alts joon, December 4th, at 5:40 o’clock The sad news spread qnickly throughout the city and there were expressions of deep sorrow on every hand. Mr. Parcher had not been what one might term a rugged man for a good many years, but he was always active looking after his large and varied busi ness interests, and ready at all times to enter into anything new which seemed to him would return reasonable profits and which would assist in the growth of our city. The winter of 1906-07, Mr. and Mrs. Parcher spent in California, most of the time in Pasadena, hoping that the change from the more rigorous to a milder climate might work for the benefit of his heath, but there seemed to be very little difference in his gen eral health. In September he was taken seriously ill; eminent specialists were consulted no hopes were given him of ultimate recovery; he was able to be about and direct business, which he did, and with patience and fortitude and a cheerfulness which had characterized him through life, he awaited the tinal summons. Last F'ri day there was a change in his condition and it was evident that the end was approaching. His wonderful constitu tion, which had served him so well in the past, asserted itself again and it was not until five days later that be dropped in a quiet sleep which proved to be for all eternity. The name of Robert Parcher had been a household 'me in our city for nearly fifty years, it was the synonym for honesty, trutn, courage, industry and progressiveness. His life history, if it were accessible, would prove an in centive most potent, to the struggling youug man for all time to come. It was by his strict adherence to ROBERT E. PARCHER principle; to his putting into daily practice what he believed to be the right course to pursue in every walk of life, that enabled him to work up from a young man without means, when he came to Wausau in 1858, to a man of wealth and position, and a reputation for good that extended far beyond the confines of his home city. No one can calculate the good Mr. Parcher has done in this community by his unswerving devotion to what he considered were the essential principles to gain happiness, contentment and success in this world. Rather would he sacrifice all he had than be dishonest or untruthful. A good and persistent fighter, on all questions pertaining to the welfare of his country, state, coun ty or home city, still he never brought any bitterness into these contests, and when finally disposed of he was ready to extend to all the right hand of fellow ship. His exceptionally good judgment in everything pertaining to business, educational and city affairs made him a strong factor in shaping the course of our city from almost the time of his ar rival here. His work along charitable lines has been pursued with system, never spas modically, and while his gifts to many public and private institutions, have become known to the community, still no one will ever know the great good he has done for the many who were in sorrow and distress, for he never courted notoriety an‘d preferred to have his deeds of charity unheralded. He will be sadly missed in this com munity, which has so richly profited by his having lived here all these years, and where he was so beloved, respected and esteemed. Robert E. Parcher was born in Ver mont, on the 6th day of December, 1838, and he would have been 69 years of age had his life been spared 40 hours longer, as it was, his funeral rite-s were per formed on that day. He remained in the Flasi, and most of the time in his home town, securing an education and teaching school, up to the time he was twenty years of age, in 1858, when he came to Wisconsin. Fie came as far as Plover in the spring of that year and in October he came further up the Wis- consin valley to Wausau. Thomas Taylor, bis brother-in-law, had been here for two years and it was through him that Wausau is indebted for having Mr. Parcher as a citizen. With Mr. Parcher came Eb. Taylor, another young man from Vermont, and when on their way from Stevens Point, it was found that the former was the only one having any money, and the amount was seventy-five cents, which was divided with his companion and enabled them to secure their meals on the way. Mr. Parcher at once entered the employ of Taylor & Ellis, who then conducted a general store on Main street, and two years later he purchased the interest of Mr. Ellis and in 1866 became the sole owner of the establishment Ten years later he took in other partners and the firm was composed of K. E. Parcher, It. P. Muuoq tad Georg* E. Feraald. From that time Mr. Parcher shifted the responsibilities of the mercantile busi ness onto other shoulders and he be came more deeply interested in various large lumbering industries and was a very heavy dealer in real estate. He was associated with Dr. Gordon in an early day, in a drug store, and later with F. H. Morman. He was one of the organizers of the Wausau Lumber comparv, which owned large tracts of timber . 'd, had mills in this city and was able to saw out and manufacture for the market 12,009,000 ft. during the summer season, whicL was a large amount in those days. The mill was located on the east side of the Wisconsin river a little northeast of the Barker & Stewart mill. Such men as D. L. Plumer, Geo. Silverthorn, V. A. Alderson, James McCrossen and Wm. Knox were associated with Mr. Parcher in this enterprise. In later years this business passed into other hands and the mill, in the ’9o’s, was destroyed by tire. Mr. Parcher, in the early ’Bo’s, was ex tensively interested in the manufacture of lumber, with John and Alexander Stewart. The saw mill was located up near the Wausau Box and Lumber Co.’s plant. The Pilot might enumerate many in stitutions in which Mr Parcher was in terested during his life in Wausau. MaDy of them were entered into, hop ing they might grow into large concerns and thereby prove of lasting bene fit to our city. Time has proved that he was correct in his judgment, and had Wausau been possessed of a few others of his spirit and determination, she would have been a much larger city today. Of the prominent institutions in which Mr. Parcher was interested at. the time of his death, the Pilot will only mention a few. He was vice-president of e First National bank ; a heavy stot 'Judder in the National German America.! bank; president of the Wausau Electric Cos.; vice-president of the Wausau Canning Cos.; vice-president of the Marathon County Granite company. Mr. Parcher interested himself in the granite of our county, having been pre vailed upon to do so by Fred J. DeVoe, who bad had long experience in the business. When he became convinced that Wausau was the place for exten sive granite works and that the stone was here in a variety of colors, and practically inexhaustible, he gave liber ally of his time and money to the up building of what is destined to become one of the great and lasting institutions of our city. The Pilot quotes at length an article from the pen of FI. T. Whee lock upon the interest taken by Mr. Parcher in this work, viz.: “When Bob Parcher became con vinced there was a future for the granite industry in this county it was but a question of time when the Marathon Granite company would get upon its feet, for it has been his practice to materialize his dreams. His business judgment is so generally respected and his willingness to back that judgment with cash so well known that other men of large means consented to join him and invest what money was re quired to establish on a firm basis the business of quarrying and working the Marathon county granite deposits. Since the organization of the company whenever there has been a disposition manifested by any of the stockholders to become too conservative, it has been the part of Mr. Parcher to show them the error of their ways, sometimes to the point of offering to take their stocks off their hands. He has given his per sonal attention to the business when re quired to do so, has advised and en couraged the manager when difficulties were to be surmounted, has stiffened the backbones of the shareholders and brought the company through the ex perimental stage to a point where suc cess—and success of a substantial, grat ifying kind—is now assured. “Thus it came about that the‘Parcher Quarry’ got its name, and this part of the story is of particular interest to those who know the man and the in dustry with which his name is now in separably connected. The Parcher quarry is anew one, opened about eighteen months ago, from which is taken a green granite that is destined to become famous in all sections of the country, as there is no other stone of the same kind in the world. The near est approach to it is a green stone of lighter shade that is imported from Ger many. The Parcher stone has a course gtoin, the quartz and feldspar crystals being unusually large, while the mica particles stand out prominently in both the rough and the polished stone. At the quarry, which is situated about seven miles northwest of Wausau, the stone as it is taken from its bed and worked into rough blocks has the ap pearance of gray granite with a slight greenish tinge. But when the stone is polished at the works the green tinge becomes a positive color. The people of Wausau have become proud of their red granite—the stone that took first priz- for hardness at the world’s fair. They potui *o the two columns at the main entrance to the courthouse, to the soldiers’ monument in the courthouse square, to the solid granite front of the Cohn block, as an evidence of what can be done with this beautiful stone. There are large num bers of polished shafts of red, brown, gray and white granite at the factory of the Marathon Granite company, for they ship in rough stone from all the leading quarries of the country, as well as from the five quarries owned by themselves, and they even import stone from Europe and Scotland, but the Parcher granite, as the green stone has been named, has no rivals among them. W'ith all its warmth and richness of coloring, the polished Parcher granite is neither gaudy sor immodesty ob trusive. It is a dignified, aristocratic stone, as becomes its age, one that can be admitted to any home on terms of closest intimacy without fear of disas trous consequences. It may be said that tastes differ when it comes to passing upon the merits of stones, as in other thiDgs, but, if this be true, the fact remains that tastes appear to run strangely in the same channel in this particular case. The Marathon Granite company has made no effort to sell the Parcher granite, but all they have been able to quarry and finish at their works has been taken by their customers practically as soon as it is ready for the market. Of their 200 odd regular customers but twenty have so tar secured any of this stone, these dealers taking it as fast as it came from the polishing rooms. Visiting custom el's who have used the red granite for years and apparently were wedded to it have, of their own motion, placed orders for the Parcher stone in car load lots and then ordered more. “The Parcher granite is harder and more difficult to work even than the red granite, but improved machinery and methods and the introduction of com pressed air devices for operating the chisels are overcoming the difficulties encountered in this department. It takes more time and better tools to form and polish these blocks of stone thau it does when a softer material is worked, but modern machinery is performing wonders in the stone business as well as in other lines of Industry, and the Parcher granite, the hardest known to the trade, is touay a commercial pro duct. “Naturally, as this Qi. \rry has been opened but eighteer mcaths, the hole made in the deposi! is uot a large one, the quarrymen not having penetrated below the first stratum of rock, but sur face indications show that the supply of stont is practically inexhaustable. One who sees the outcroppings along the hillside can well imagine that when this civilization shall have passed away—as some people believe it will—and the “man from New Zealand”shal; journey from London, after his inspection of ruins of that great city, to the western continent where he will ponder upon the traces left by our race, then extinct, he will tind an abundance of Parcher granite to supply the demands of his times. “Centuries must come and go before this quarry can be worked out. The lands of Wisconsin will be denuded of their forests, and reforested; the iron mines, the lead and copper mines still to be discovered near Lake Superior, will be exhausted, but even then the quarryrnec will have merely tickled the surface of the Parcher quarry. If the name of this man, small of stature, del icate of frame, kind of heart, but with a keen eye that can read character like the plainest print, a business judgment that is almost as accurate as a mechan ical device, and a courage that has placed him in a class by himself—if his name shall be associated with that stone until the supply fails,Robert E. Parcher will have the most enduring mouument of all the men of this time and race.” Every person has some sport, some recreation or some work in which he takes more than ordinary interest. They prefer the enjoyment it affords to y other. Their mind is ever on it <.ud it becomes a second nature with them to follow it. With R. E. Parcher that enjoyment was afforded in farm ing. He followed it not for gain, but because it gave him pleasure. It proved a mind-ease after wrestling with business problems. He was en gaged in farming almost ever since coming to the county in 1858. He owned farms on both sides of the river in the northern section of the city. The one on the west side was years ago cleared of all timber. The one on the east side was partly cleared and the balance stands today as it has ever stood—a virgin forest and one of the beauty spots to be found in this local ity. He began farming at a time when grains were threshed with a flail and farming methods were in a crude state. Before his death his farms were the best stocked in the county, in point of up to date machinery. In addition to machinery in general use he bad a threshing machine, engine and hay press. He was a progressive farmer ever ready to pick up new methods and apply them. Notwithstanding that de ceased was a very busy man and had innumerable enterprises which engaged his attention, he always found time to look after his farm affairs. Likewise he always found time to interest himself in any agricultural movement in the county. For some reason he never took up the raising of fancy stock. Neither was be an experimenter with crops of an unknown quantity. At one time be established a tish pond on bis west farm. About a year ago he sold the east farm and the new St. Mary's hospital is located on it, on a hillside in a very picturesque spot. Later in the summer he disposed of his west farm and all of its belongings. Both of these, provided with good boildings, are valuable prop erties. The life of this, truly good man can not be more than toccbed upon in an article of this kind. Mr. Parcher was more than a superior man of business, was a great reader, a profound thinker, a ready debater, and never at a loss what to say when necessary to write oct his opinions. Certain it is, he has been a vast power for good in this com manky. It was fitting, tnat, in respect to his memory, on Friday, flags in the city were at half mast; that ail institutions in which he was interested and many others, were closed daring the after noon : and employes attended in a body as did the city officials, and fraternal societies.

This union was blessed with one son who passed away in infancy. He is survived by his devoted wife and few distant relatives who reside in Vermont and California. His parents died many years ago; his mother after having re sided in this city with her sou for a number of years. The funeral ceremonies took place from the home at 2:30 o’clock, Friday afternoon, the Rev. Fr. E. M. Thomp son, rector of St. John’s Flpiscopal church v officiating. After the impress ive service of the Flpiscopal church had been concluded, the Masonic fraternity took charge. Mr. Parcher had been a member of F’orest Lodge, F\ and A. M for over forty years and he was also a member of Wausau Chapter, R. A. M., and St. Oilier Commandery, K. T. and the attendance of his Masonic brethern was very large. These services were conducted by Dr. P. A. ltiebe, W. M. of F'orest Lodge and P. W. M., S. H. Alban, of Rhinelander. Old time friends sent in floral tributes in profusion, as it seemed to them the most fitting way of expressing their love and esteem for deceased. Beauti ful designs came from various business institutions and fraternal societies. The following named attended the funeral and went to the cemetery in a bouy: Mayor M. H. Duncan, Fix- Mayors, D. L. Plumer, J. FI. Leahy, John Ringle, Gustave Mueller, John W. Miller, H. E. McEachron, V. A. Alderson, J. N. Manson, FI. C. Zimmer man, Joseph Reiser and Louis Mar chetti.

REVOKED LICENSE. Bv a vote of 5 to 1 the village board of Schofield ’ast night revoked the saloon licenso of Peter Hanson, charged with selling liquor to four minors. They were the young fellows who created a disturbance on a street car in October. The boys appeared as unwill ing witnesses and though they told tlieir story reluctantly it was of a suf ficient damaging character to leave no other course for the village board than to revoke the license. Tonight Frank Wendorf will be given a hearing before the board on the same charge. As three of the same boys will testify, and the evidence submitted will be practically the same as that intro duced against Hanson, it looks very much as if Wendorf will lose his license. On Saturday evening another saloon keeper of the name of Frank Braatz was called before the board. As there are flaws in the village ordinances under which he wqs to be prosecuted, the prosecu ting attorney dismissed the Women’s Coats Sharp reduction that will make a rapid clearance.

Last Wednesday, while Walter Rein hart was on his way from this city to his home in the town of Wausau, he saw what ho thought at first was a large dog, gray in color, etauding in the center of the road. The animal leisurely walked into the woods and circled around and came toward Mr. Reinhart when the latter approached. It was then that Mr. Reinhart dis covered that it was a large gray wolf. He did not have a gun with him and was just a little nervous until he found out that Mr. Wolf did not intend to try to make a meal out of him or his horses. There have been quite a number of wolves killed in the county the past year.
