Bragg celebrated his 81st birthday at his home in Fond du Lac on Feb. 21st. He is in ex 't health despite his age. S. A. Cook, of Neenah, has reo<;i a call to become a candidate for U. Senator. The call is signed by aboi 25,000 names of citizens of Wisconsii Mr. Cook has accepted the call and th fight is on. However, let us hope that if a cook is needed at the next election of an U. S. Senator, it will be a demo cratic one. General Stoessel, charged with sur rendering Port Arthur to the Japan ese, has been condemned to death. The verdict of the court martial is that General Pock shall be reprimanded and General Smirnoff and General Reiss acquitted. ’ The court recommended that the death sentence upon Stoessl be commuted to ten years’ imprison ment in a fortress, and that he be ex cluded from service. Spring Elections. The time is nearing when our people will have to select those whom they will have to serve them as mayor and mem bers of the city council for the next two years to come. All candidates for the primary election will have to tile their papers with the city clerk not later than March 9th. The primary election is to be held on March 24th. The spring elec tion is to be held on the 7th of April. There will be a supreme justice to elect in place of R. M. Bashford; a municipal judge in place of Louis Mar chetti; town officers throughout the county and a municipal ticket from mayor down. Very little has been said up-to-date as to who are likely to be the candidates for mayor of our city. A call is out asking John F. Lamont to become a candidate on the democratic ticket at the primaries. A few have been spoken of by the re publicans and the most prominent is M. H. Duncan. It is thought that the Law and Order League will have a candidate in the held and perhaps a complete ticket. John Barnes Will Run. John Barnes, who ha.- 1 urged by his friends to be a candid. ie lor Justice of the Supreme Court of Wisconsin, has made a formal announcement, that he will accept, which is as follows: To the Electors of the State of Wis consin: In response to a request from the bar of the Sixteenth judical circuit ( is consin, in which request the >f many other counties and nun s individuals have joined, I ho> y announce myself as a candidate for t e office of associate justice of the suprei a court of the state of Wisconsin, at tl a election to be hold on April 7, 1908, > till the vacancy created by the death • f the late Chief Justice Cassoday. Respectfully, John Barnes. This will mean a contest between R. M. Bashford, of Madison, who was appointed by Gov. James O. Davidson, to Oil the vacancy caused by the recent death of Chief Justice Cassoday. The appointment was only until such a time as the people of Wisconsin could elect a successor at the hrst regular election. Mr. Barnes is a very popular man, a leading attorney of Wisconsin, and if elected will till the office with great credit to himself and to the state. THE SOUVINER EDITION. The Pilot acknowledges th 9 receipt of a copy of the souvenir edition of the Y. M. C. A. which left the bauds of the binder on Friday of last week. The salient points of history connected with that organization since it was started in Wausau in 1891 have been preserved in readable form, and with the numer ous illustrations which embellished the tale, make a book valuable from an historical point of view and one that will be treasured by the most of our citizens. It is a compliment to the author and will do much towards call ing attention to the organization. It is now on sale at the office of the general secretary, Neil Campbell. BANK REPORTS. In this issue of the Pilot can be found the bank reports of the two national banks of our city and that of the Wis consin Valley Trust Cos., and of the Bank of Edgar. The comptroller of the rency called for a report of conditions of the banks of our country, up to the close ot business on Feb. 14th, 1908. The various reports show an exception ally fine condition of the finances in each of the institutions. SHORT NEWS ITEMS. Mrs. E. A.

A local manufacturing concern recently received a car load ,of plank shipped from the West which excited the curiosity of old time lumbermen who viewed it. The timber was Washington fir. Each plank was 16 feet long, 2 inches thick and 32 inches wide, without a knot. The lumber, because of its great width, was ordered for special purposes. It was sawed in the mill of Emil Hack barth, who moved from Wausau for the West, several years ago. Last Saturday noon, Mrs. H. L. Crandall met with a painful accident. She went to the furnace and threw in some grease, the damper in the pipe being closed, a sheet of flame puffed out from the door and burned her right arm quite badly. Her hair was singed and it was a wonder she escaped with out her clothing being set on fire. A physician was called and dressed the burn and it will be some time before her arm is entirely well. Fred Zingler, a boy turned over to Chief Malone early last week, was sent back to his father’s home later in the week after an investigation had been conducted. The boy, who is a son of Ferdinand Zingler, residing at 118 Wil liams street, was found on the streets without sufficient clothing to keep him warm, claiming that his father drove him from home. By order of the court the boy was sent back home and the father was admonished to be more careful of his treatment of the boy in the future. Group 6 of the Wisconsin State Bank ers’ association has fixed upon May 29 as the date for holding the next meet ing. The members will meet in the city of Stevens Point. There are about 100 banks represented in this group aud it is expected that fully that many people will be present at the meeting. The officers are: President, H. G Flieth, Wausau; vice-president, Guy L. Babcock, Grand Rapids; secretary treasurer, H. G. Hambright, Marsh field. The last meeting was held in Wausau nearly a year ago. Sheriff Frank O’Connor entered into the horse dealing business Saturday, forced to do so through a writ of re plevin placed in his hands. He at tached five horses, the owners who are Athens people, claiming that the pur chaser paid down $25 on the deal and gave a mortgage for the balance They got a little anxious about the security and attached the animals. Yesterday all of the parties interested got their heads together and patched up matters, the horses goiug back to the purchaser. Last week the supreme court affirmed the decisions tf Judge Silverthorn in three One was entitled R. A. Edgar vs. Nicholas and Julius Wis newski, involving the turning over of S7OO which had been placed in the hands of the clerk of the court as a bond for Nicholas Wisnewski. Another was that wherein the James Music Cos. sued to recover a judgment against S. N. Bridge, et. al. This case grew out of the sale of the S. N. Bridge music store about two years ago. A third case was entitled A. H. Stauge vs. city of Merrill. The Wausau Paper Mills Cos. has a crew at work building practically a new dam. The piers are being extended down the river, the aprons of the flumes are beingextended and when the job is completed the dam will be practk ally twice as wide as it is now. The old gates will be left where they are at present. The new work only relates to the old portion ol the dam. That part rebuilt last summer will be left as it is at present. Rock for tilling the new piers is blasted out of .he side of the hill on the w est side of the river, rolled down onto the ice in chutes loaded onto sleighs and is hauled to where the new piers are being built. Mr. and Mrs. F. J. Reynolds were called to Aniwa Friday ir. response to a telegram stating that their son, Lyman, had been killed the day before. The young man was engaged at work at a place called Wf.shbrm biding, near Aniwa and in seme way his clothing caught in the fly wheel of a gasoline engine, the result being that he was thrown heavily to the floor and sus tained injuries which proved fatal. He was twenty-four years of age and be sides his parents he is survived by a brother and two sisters, Harry, former ly of this city, now of Aniwa, and the Misses Vinnie and Nellie of Wausau The father formerly conducted the dye works on Scott street and at present resides at 411 Jackson street. Nicholas Schmidt, residing on the west side, had a narrow escape from drowning last Saturday. He was at work on the new dam at Brokaw, men tion of which is made elsewhere in this issue. In lifting a rock from a sleigh to a platform built near one of the piers below the dam he slipped and fell into the water. He let go of the rock in time and caught hold of a timber and clung to it. It was just directly south of the water flumes and the current was very swift. He hung onto the tim ber until rescued by fellow workmen and was drawn out and taken into the boiler room of the paper mill, where he was partially dried. The water chilled him to tne marrow and had he released hja hold of the timber he would have been drawn under the ice. A TRIBUTE TO FRED B. SMITH, INTERNATIONAL SECRE TARY Y M. C. A. By Adelbekt S. Collins. Fred B Smith spoke at the Wausau, W isconsin, Y. M. C. A. banquet on Fri day evening, February 14, 1908, at the Mec’s Meeting in the gymnasium of the nw Y. M. C. A. building, Sunday afternoon. February 16, 1908, and at the mass meeting held in the First Metho dist Episcopal church on Sunday even ing, February 16, 1908. Who is Fred B. Smith?' 1 One of the international secretaries of the Y. M. C. A. whose ho ne is in New' York city, whose fielo is the world and whose mission is “Men.” It doesn’t take long to tell that part of the story, to answer the question, or to line him up in the avocation where he has obtained deserved recognition. No skill, little knowledge of facts, np genuis in the grouping of colors, no sensitive conception of the method of placing the finishing touches is required in the drawing of such brief and formal outlines. If that is all there is to be said, the answer to the question has not been given, the real identity of the at me Fred B. Smith has not been fully estab lished. Who is Fred B. Smith? He is a man with a Mission. You will have to capitalize that last word, unless you prefer to accept husks, and throw away the substance of a profit able contemplation of the man. It is less important that he lived for years without seeing how that Mission beckoned him to a life union, than to know that since the union was made, in all climes, under all circumstances, with all men, on sea and on land, in the carnage of war and in the realms of peace, in the nether world of human vice and degradation, in the cultured halls and circles where humanity has been graded the highest, he has never lost sight of that Mission; never lost an opportunity to pluck some flower blend ing the colors of human and divine achievement, and plant it where only thorns, thistles and an aimless life had occupied the ground. Fred B. Smith is a soldier. He denies that he is a leader. He makes no plans, maps out no campaigns and assumes no responsibility beyond that of execut- Hire i.L i BFt *’ * i SjSßHfgtsjS Kt W iff? m Si'S® FROM THE Y. M. C. A. SOUVENIR EDITION ing the orders of his Commander. Twenty men of Wausau were present at a conference he held with his Com mander about ten o’clock Sunday morn ing, February IG, 1908, when the day’s work was under advisement. Then was revealed a picture of the man be yond the skill of the artist, the painter or the sculptor. His words could be quoted verbatim, but *hey alone would be almost meaningless. He talked with him, “as friend with friend;” he told him he was n’t worried, w&s not fretting about the outcome, for while he had oftentimes durmg his service been tangled up, he had always come out victorious by simply following orders. He expected an epoch day, but none of the glory would be his, and after the battle, he would pledge him self to place the credit of the conquest where it belonged. That was the preliminary of the day’s handling of strategic positions, the at titude of a man whose faith was less outspoken than exemplified in all of his movemements. He asked for the arrangement of details in a manner that carried the conviction that he was simply compassing the carrying out of plans which had been entrusted to him. That this conviction passed into the fruition of a well grounded faith before the day w r as over, has already been written in the annals of the Christian triumphs of the day. Fred B. Smith is a ntan with a mes sage. Ordinarily that meaus a good deal In this case it means more. The mes sage is the greater part of that combina tion. It overshadows the man, keeps him all the while in its ’■effected glory, makes him greater, mightier, invincible, and, yes, we will say it, invisible in its delivery. His power, is the power of the message, his attractiveness, its beauty, the foundation of his grip on man, traced to the promise, “And if I be lifted up will draw all men unto me.” lie and the message have become in separable, and men talk more of what he said, than of his personality. The •^■Lifcl3^' &.$f U ~~ S!C ' Pwir ' ••'■J~’£S^BBp^w^aß^^s^jMlP4ft^^l VIEW OF GYMNASIUM T. M. C. A. message comes to all, a portion for every man; quietly to a few, forceful to others, and like some huge missile throw u from a catapult to tin many. You cannot dodge it, give it to others, or hide away from the burning rays of the searchlight which is a part of the message. Fred B. Smith, is a man with a pur pose. What that purpose is,is never in doubt. Because it it. a part of him, he never be comes seperated from it. Life has n’t any monotony for him, because that purpose leads him into all the conditions of a complex civilization and bids him garner fruits to be preserved forever- Every accomplishment of advanced society, every note of triumph in the broader, better field of humanity, every groan and clanking of the chains which sin, vice and degradation puts upon man, all cluster around this purpose which sings “Save Men! Save Men!!” and he never loses a note, or misses a compliance with such orders. He “walks with God,” and sometimes Enoch like, he will go with Him so far into the summer land of song, that his Master will say “You need n’t go back any more,” and from all over the world will come the refrain, “Know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel.” Y. M. C. A. NOTES. Things are booming iD the gymnas ium class work. Last Friday night’s game with the Antigo high school resulted in a score of 37 to 26, in favor of the local five. Antigo played a hard, aggressive game, but were not in it with the Y. boys in fast team work and basket. Physical Director Norman refereed the game. A number of Antigo people came down and witnessed th.a game. Last Thursday the first of a series of three entertainments for the grammer school boys, was given to the boys of the Lincoln, Irving and Columbia schools. They inspected the boys’ de partment and watched the boys go through their class drills and games. The basketball leagues in the differ ent boys’ classes are in full swing. The Jr. A class has six teams, the Jr. B’s eight, and the Intermediates eight. Mr. Wones, state secretary for boys’ work, has been here for two weeks, organizing the boys’ department.

TRAINING SCHOOL NOTES, The training school pupils were given a vacation Friday to permit the teachers to attend the meeting of the N. J?. Wis. Teachers’ association at Neenah-Mena sha. The attendance at the convention was about 800; the program was un usually interesting, the discussions be ing of an exceptionally high order, and the social features were pleasant. Dr. S. E. Winship, of Boston, editor of the New England Journal of Educa tion, delivered a most interesting ad dress Friday evening on “The Making of a Manly Boy.” It was an earnest and eloquent appeal abounding in humor, pathos and personal anecdotes that carried conviction to the attentive listener. He urged that the boy should not be taken too seriously, because his pranks were but the overflow of spirit, generally without evil intent; that appeal should be made to his manliness and recognition accorded to his individ uality and personality; and that con fidence and comradeship should be early established and maintained by parents and teachers. The twin cities did themselves proud in the line of entertainment. Lodging and breakfast were provided free to all members of the association who desired it. The best homes in the cities were freely opened for such entertainment and no pains were spared to make the welcome hearty. Dinner and supper were served by the churches near by at 35 cents per meal. Excursions were conducted through the new high school building in Neenah, the paper mills, and the plant of the Menasha Wooden Ware Cos. In short, nothing was left undone to make the convention one long to be remembered by the associa tion. The teachers’ meeting at Fenwood on the 15th was attended by about thirty teachers of the vicinity, and was both interesting and instructive. Consider able attention was given to the proper equipment of school houses. Anew beating plant recently installed in the room in which the meeting was held was most convenient for illustration and demonstration of this important and little-understood subject. A teachers’ meeting is planned for Athens on Saturday next, and similar gatherings are in prospect elsewhere for every succeeding Saturday of the winter term. The two county schools are now lux uriating in rooms both warmed and cleaned, thanks to the new janitor. ADVERTISED LETTERS. Arquette, Gabe Higgin, Percy Arquette, W. S.

Thursday afternoon, February 20, the girls’ picked team played a similar team from the Washington and the score was 8 to 0 in favor of the 1 Lincoln school. Violet Wolslegel made all the baskets. Last Friday afternoon the boys’ basket ball team, No. 1, played a team from the Agricultural school and was defeated in a close game. Friday afternoon room C gave a pro gram in honor of Washington’s birth day. The room was beautifully deco rated in flags and bunting. The little people on the first floor certainly celebrated. Washington’s birthday in a very patriotic manner. The upper grade children enjoyed hear ing their martial tread through the halls. They visited a number of the rooms and presented a gay appearance with their bright flags, cocked hats, guns, and shiniDg swords. Thursday afternoon, February 20, rooms A, B and C, listened to a very instructive talk on “'Uie Teeth” which was given by Dr. A. H. Leruke. He ex plained the formation of the teeth and laid a splendid foundation for a talk which he will give later on “fbe Care of the Teeth.” Mrs. Bird, of the board of education, visited our school last week. On Wednesday morning, Feb. 19, Mr. Wones, who is interested in the boys’ department of the Y. M. C. A., gave a splendid talk to the pupils of the intermediate and granimer grades of the Lincoln school. His first aim was to lead tne children to see that a perfect life is one which is equilateral, brains, body, and character being the elements which are necessary in the ideal man or woman. He spoke of the school as one medium through which brain power is developed, and also of some of the aids in character buildiDg. Then he told of the work which thß boys’ department of the Y. M. C. A. is doing toward helping boys to develop strong bodies. He explained that the opportunities which this institution offers are within the reach of any boy who is willing to make an effort to secure them. He made the subject of his talk quite a reality by inviting all boys of the Lincoln school who were above the age of ten to visit the Y. M. C. A. on Thursday, after school, in order that they might see for them selves those things which he could simply speak about. The next day 158 boys took advantage of his kind invitation. They had a splendid time, and the gymnasium, swimming pool and refreshments have formed the chief topics of conversation ever since the eventful afternoon. We hope that many of our boys may have a chance to enjoy these opportunities which are so near at hand. The Bank of Edgar.
