TUESDAY MAY 19, 1908.

at Wausau as second class matter.
While the democratic state conven
tion of Minnesota instructed for John
son, it was be jause he wasegovernor of
that state and it was a desire to thus
compliment him. Mr. Bryan was fav
orably mentioned in the platform.
The republican state central commit
tee met In Milwaukee last Friday to
select alternates to the national conven
tion. Walter Alexander, of this city,
who was the only Taft delegate elected
at the recent convention, was alloyed
the privilege of selecting his own alter
nate and chose r ”heodore W. Brazeau,
of Grand Rapids.
Losing Ground.
Taft boo mers are getting scared. They
begin to realize that his chances to win
against Col. Bryan are very doubtful.
All the powerful machinery of the
corporations which he represents is be
ing worked overtime in an effort to dis
credit Bryan and divide the democratic
camp. Gov. Johnson, of Minnesota,
Jim Hill’s right-hand man, is their wea
pon, and it is refreshing to see how they
boost Johnson and praise his democ
racy, integritwund overshadowing abil
ity while they belittle Bryan. If those
elements really believed Johnson is
stronger and better than Bryan do you
think they would boost him? If John
son received the nomination he would
stand about as much chance as a cake
of ice in a bake oven. Taft would be
the winner hands down. Taft may be
getting the delegates, and may get the
nomination, but if he does his name is
mud. He is losing ground with the
people, and itis on this account that the
Associated Press, the most powerful
agency of Wall street and its associa
tions is reviling Bryan.—Sheboygan

“THE OLD WORLD AND
ITS WAYS.”
(By William Jennings Bryan.)
This remarkable book of 575 pages,
voluminously illustrated and elegantly
bound, has been issued by The Thomp
son Publishing company of St. Louis,
Mo., and sold by subscription.
We would advise our young friends
who are out of employment to seek the
agency and canvass for this book. It is
certainly one of the most readable,
entertaining and edifying volumes we
have rehd in a long time. It was
almost like retracing our first trip
around the world, with less than one
thousan Ith of the money and one
hundredth of the time required for our
'♦first trip.”
The greatest problems of civilization,
religion, philosophy and government in
Japan, Cnina, the Philippines, India,
as well as Europe, are presented in a
clear light by a great brain.
Mr. Bryan was accompanied on this
trip by his wife and two younger chil
dren, William J. Jr., and Grace, aged 16
and 14, respectively. They started
September 21, 1905, and reached home
September 5, 1906, sixteen days less
than >no year While most of this trip
was in the North Tempeiate Zone, they
were below the equator a few days in
Java, and for a while above the arctic
circle in Norway.
This book ought to be in every home
where there are boys and girls with
brains and promise. ,

It Will Be a Glorious Battle.
General H. Gray Otis is a badly fright
ened map. In an editorial primed in
his paper, the Los Angeles Times, Gen
eral Otis deals with “the issues and the
struggle.” In the beginning General
Otis says that it is probable that Bryan
and Taft will be the nominees. Follow
ing are extracts from that editorial:
“We have reserved for consideration
last the industrial condition of the
country and its possible effects
the vote. There is only
one way to enter into * a con
flict at close quarters which is wise
and likely to succeed. That is for the
leaders in the fray to know exactly
their own resources, their weaknesses
as well as their strength, and to learn
about the enemy’s conditions as care
fully as possible. Now it is an un
deniable fact that the industrial condi
tion of the country at the time the
voters approach the polls has an ex
ceedingly important bearing upon the
result. There is no doubt that the
sweeping majority for the republican
ticket in 1896 was largely due to the
lamentable state of the industries and
prosperity of the people. Four years
later the republican party had been
able to point out that they had re
deemed every promise they made in
the preceding election, and that party
again swept the country with an enor
mous majority. So again tour years
ago the continued happy condition of
the people inspired all minds but pre
judiced or interested partisans to let
well enough alone.
“What are the facts at present? The
first three months of the current year
shows that the bank cleariDgs of all
the clearing house cities in the United
States fell below those of the same
period a year ago by twenty-eight per
cent; the gross railroad earnings were
twelve per cent less and the net earn
ings showed a falling off of between
twenty and twenty-five per cent. There
are 300,000 railroad cars idle this year
owing to a lack of traffic compared
with an utter impossibility to furnish
rolling stock for the traffic offered a
year ago. Now note the following:
The failures in business of all kinds for
these three months of 1908 numbered
5,000, with liabilities running to over
175,000,000. These figures have never
been- exceeded in any corresponding
three n .onths in the industrial history of
the United States. It is estimated by
those in close touch with the conditions
that not less than 1,000,000 persons are
out of work in the United Slates, taken
as a whole, one-third of these being
railroad employes. Iron and steel pro
duction is now about one-half of the
normal output.
‘‘While this depression exists, strange
to say the country is exoorting food
stuffs and crude oil and its products be
yond anything ever known before.
These sales run to about $20,000,000 a
week. The crop prospects, taking the
country as a x whole, are unusually good.
Th* question is, what effect will these
influences have upon the general busi
ness of the country between now and
the first week in next October f If this
depression remains as it is, with busi
ness concerns failing in great numbers,
involving enormous liabilities in which
concerns that still survive stand to lose
this money, the effect upon the vote in
November is difficult to estimate. If,
on the contrary, the business of the
country should undergo a very general
revival, showing a recovery from de
pression more rapid than ever known
before, the people would take as an im
portant justification of republican ad
ministration.
“The conclusion the intelligent mind
will reach is that the republican party
confronts anything but a walk-over in
the fall election. The status calls for
the most earnest and faithful devotion
of every good republicau in the coun
try to the party and its cause. It calls
on every republican to get into the
party ranks, to kindle one’s own en
thusiasm with the fires of earnestuess
which are sure to spread to neighbors
on all sides, to drop all party squabbles,
all factious disputes, and to rally under
the flag for the sole and undivided pur
pose of electing the candidate of the
Chicago convention to the presidency.
With the struggle before us, anything
like halting, hesitating, divided ranks,
wMI result in utter failure.
“The Times feels keenly the uncer
tainty of the situation, the strenuous
ness of the struggle, the imperative
necessity of all gettlug into line, get
ting iD straight, toeing the mark and
marching shoulder to shoulder. This
is th“ only course that promises suc
cess ”

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CON
VENTION.
An Interesting Time Last Evening at
the Men's League of the Presbyter
ian Church.
Last evening the Men's league fur
nished anew kind of an entertainment,
which interesting as well as
very instructive. It was called a
“Republican National Convention”
though, in truth, it savored much of
democracy. The plan was to hold a
moeh national convention ana to con
duct the same as near the “real thing,”
as possible; in this those in charge did
admirably well.
The church was profusely decorated
with Hags and bunting, and about one
half of the church auditorium was re
served for the delegates from each of
the states. The seats for delegates
were marked with small flags and the
name of each state appeared conspic
uously, so the delegate-, had no trouble
in finding their places.
The church filled wbh delegates
and spectators who came to listen to
the proceedings and among them were
many ladies.
There was a short business meeting
of the league before the convention,
which was called to order by president
L. N. Larson.
At the appointed hour, James Mont
gomery, chairman of the nationai com
mittee, called the convention to order,
made a brief address and called to the
chair, F. L. Hudson, who had been
selected by the national committee as
temporary secretary. Mr. Hudson ad
dressed the convention and followed by
appointing committees on credentials,
permanent organization and resolu
tions. These were given three minutes
in which to report.
The committee on credentials showed
that there were two to three delegates
from each state in the union entitled to
seats.
The committee on permanent organi
zation recommended M. B. Rosenberry
as permantut chairman and J. D
Taylor as permanent secretary, which
raport was adopted.
Mr. Rosenberry’s address was a very
able one, taking up the new ohases of
the political situation; as he stated,
there was no time to enter into a dis
cussion of even the principal questions
at issue, even if he so desired. He
made an excellent presiding officer and
Mr. Taylor could not be excelled s a
secretary.
The committee on resolutions sub
mitted two sets, one for the majority
and another for the minority.
The majority was for the reduction
of the tariff, the insurance of bank de
posits; the improvement of water ways;
the governmental control of divorce
laws; large forest reserves, etc. The
minority recommended President
Roosevelt’s spelling rules; his views on
race suicide; a reward to every family
having over ten children; had some ret
ence to the elm tree which had been cut
down on the library grounds, and Pine
park, all of which created a good deal
of merriment. On motion the minority
report was nailed on to that of the ma
jority and adopted.
The nominating speeches were then
made, the presiding officers stating that
the votiDg would be on the speeches
ralfcer than for any preference one
might have for those placed in nomina
tion. The following nominating speech
es were made, the speakers taking the
rostrum when the name of the state
which they represented was called.
Brayton E. Smith, of Illinois, nomi
nated Jos. G. Cannon.
S. R Scholes, of Indiana, C. W. Fair
banks.
E. E. Payne, of Minnesota, seconded
the nomination of J. G. Cannon.
W. H. Myirea, of New York, Chas. E.
Hughes.
H. J. Evans, of Kansas, seconded the
nomination of C. E Hughes.
M. W. Sweet, of Ohio, Wm. H. Taft.
A. H. Clark, of Nebraska, seconded
the nomination of W. H # Taft.
M. A. Hurley, of Pennsylvania, P. C.
Knox.
W. H. Bissell, of North Dakota, sec
onded C. W. Fairbanks.
C. A. Cowee, of Tennessee, seconded
the nomination of Fairbanks.
S. B. Tobey, Wisconsin, Robert La-
Follette.
R. A. Edga#, of Arizona, seconded
Robert LaFollette.
Orlaf Anderson, Wisconsin, Walter
Alexander.
B. B. Benson, North Carolina, sec
onded the nomination *of Walter Alex
ander.
The speeches were all good and at
the close, the first ballot was as follows:
Hughes 33; LaFollette 25; Taft 25; Fair
banks 8; Knox 5; Carbon 4; Alexander
2. As the hour was late a motion to
adjourn prevailed. This ended an even
ing that was full of instruction and
amusement.
A feature of the convention were
maDy dispatches sent in during the
proceedings to various delegates, all of
them creating much laughter.
TRAINING SCHOOL NOTES.
State Supt. C. P. Carey spent Friday
at the building as the major pait
of his service, speaking suggestively
and helpfully in the literary society
emphasizing the value of such work.
The school will have its aDPual out
ing at Granite Heights on Saturday if
the weather is suitable. Alumni are
invited to join us. '
The school will be entertained at the
home of Mr. Wells, Wednesday even
ing.
The mock convention at the Presby
terian church Monday night was es
pecially timely for thecoostition classes
and many students availed themselves
of the opportunity to witness the work
ing of extra constitutional methods
developed through experience.
’lbe commencement exercises are
scheduled for June 24, 5 atid 8. It is
hoped all will help to disseminate the
information as widely as possible.
Every alumnus should constitute him
self a committee of one to notify others
of the time, the extension of the time
given to the purpose and the pleasure
and profit to be derived from attend
ance. Let your correspondence be full
of it and send a few extra missives to
your classmates and friends.
Tbe management of the Wisconsin
Journal of Education having urged us,
over burdened with the work of closing
term, to prepare “copy” for the June
number, and profusely thanking ns for
the material and commending it cooly
informs us that it will appear in a later
number. *

travels.
Wausau’s two representatives in the
gif I*B district declamatory con’est at
Stevens Point last Friday evening, both
won places, Elizabeth Plautz won first
and Leah Deutsch tied for third. It is
said by people that heard Miss Plantz
at the Point that she has never spoken
her piece better. It was clear that she
was in a “class all by herself” because
the judges were unanimous in their de
cision in giving Miss Plantz first. Sec
ond place was won by Percival Hutson
and he was given second by all the
judges. Miss Deutsch tied with Miss
Susie Bates of Merrill, for third place
which is remarkably well for one who
has only been in the contests this year.
Miss Bates took third place last year at
the district contest.
The judges were Professor Luehr of
Manitowoc, Miss Wyman a teacher of
elecution at Ripon and Mrs. Truesdale,
teacher of elecution at River Falls
Normal. Miss Plantz was given three
firsts by the judges, Mr. Hutson was
given three seconds, Miss Deutsch was
given 3, 5 and 5 and Miss Bates 6, 4 and
3.
The program was as jllows: Leah
Deutsch, Wausau, “The Ruggleses;”
Agnes Askin, Elroy, “The Boy Orator;”
Perc’va! Hutson, Sparta, “An Aban
doned Elopement;” Susie Bates, Merrill,
“Bobby Shafto;” Elizabeth Plantz,
Wausau, “Madame Butterfly;” Ada
Graves, Viroqua, “A Soldier of France,”
Leota Veisen, Waupaca, “Patzy.”
LINCOLN SCHOOL NOTES.
On Monday morning C. C. Parlin
gave a talk od Alaska to tbe pupils of
rooms A, B and C. He spoke about
the climate and glaciers and of the tis’’-
tfng industry. As his time was limited,
he left off at a most interesting point in
his narrative, with the promise that the
boys and girls of the eighth grade shall
hear the rest of his story next year.
With such a treat in store for them the
children will look forward with pleas
ure to entering the high school next
fall.
On Friday afternoon State Superin
tendent C. P. Cary spoke to the pupils
of rooms A, B and C, on the “ Value of
an Education.” He stated that every
day which a boy spends in high school
will be worth ten dollars to him in the
future. He urged the boys to take
advantage of their present opportuni
ties, in order that they may be fitted
for the larger work which will come to
them as they grow elder.
Every one at the Line. In school has
been busy getting ready for the exhibit
which takes place May 22-23. The
mounts containing the pictures have
all gone to tbe high school and the
work fWm the manual training d*(art
mentis about completed. 4 Weeincerely
hope that the parents of oar boys, and
girls will attend, in order that they
may see the work which is being ac
complished all over the city, a g well as
the work of their own children. There
will be a program given at each ses
sion.
Monday afternoon, in spite of a few
rain drops, W. R. -Johnson gathered
the pupils from several of the upper
grades oat in front of the school build
ing and took their pictures. The girls
and boys looked pleasant even though
the sky was dark, so it is hoped that j
the pictures will be a success. I
COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE,
EDGAR.
Supt. W*. ,1. Farrell was here holding
teachers’ examinations on May 15 and
16.
£iOuis Lumberg moved bis family and
household goods into the house vacant
ed by L. A. Drown on Thursday. He
is employed by the Ruder Brewing
company to deliver their beer to out of
town patrons.
Mrs. Greves gave a farewell
party on Saturday eveniug in honor of
Mrs Will Brown.
Tbe tire department was called out
again on Saturday and Sunday after
noons to extinguish a fire which was
threatening the home of Mr. Jako
borwski, half a mile west of Edgar.
The lire started in the woods north of
bis place and began creeping along the
dry leaves and wood towards the house.
The wind was blowing in that direc
tion and if the department had not
been called the house would have been
destroyed. When the department
reached there a blatfe had already
started in the woodshed, a little ways
away from the house. The rain now
has put the forest tire out entirely. All
should be careful not to start tires
when it is so dry. It should teach
everybody a lesson.
A big celebration should be held in
honor of the small judge, who was
born on Friday, May 15, 1908, to Mr.
aud Mi's. C. C. Barret. There is no
one so proud as the judge is to be called
“papa ”
Mrs. Tibhits entertaired a number of
friends on Sunday afternoon.
W. J Kregel the supervisor of the
assessors had business iu Edgar on
Tuerfay.
Mr. and Mrs. O. Fehlhaber went to
Milwaukee on Friday to the hospital,
where they expect to have an operation
on their little girl.
Fred Krueger entertained quite a
number of friends on Saturday even
ing, in honor of his birthday and a
most enjoyable time was reported; a
hue lunch was served at midnight and
the party lasted uutil the wee hours of
the morning. It takes tbe good people
to have a good time.
Be careful to whom you talk and you
may be money ahead. A smooth talk
ing stranger has often been known to
talk money out of one’s pocket and
Jhat, too, in the face of the fact that tbe
person to whom the stranger is talking
has a family to support and needs every
penny. Such glib talkers are called
smart, but that, in this case is only
another name for graft. Y. L.
RINGLE.
Miss Lena Sohrann came home Satur
day to visit her parents
Mr. and Mrs. Peacher, of Callon,
were Ringle visitors Sunday afternoon.
Several of the ladies of Ringle gave a
dance in the hall although there was
not a very large attendance those
present enjoyed a good time. They
danced till the wee small hours of morn.
The music was furnished by Mr. Frank
Reynolds, of Wausau, accompanied by
Mr. Albert Kolbeck, of Callon.
Albert Kolbeck and sister, Miss
Lizzie, attended the dance at Ringle
Saturday evening.
The M sses Margaret Smith and Tena

KENNEDY’S" CORNERS.
Rain! Rain! Oh, for a few days of
dry weather so that we can get our
planting done. But crops are looking
fine in this locality.
J. H. Kennedy recently purchased of
Gorman & Lutz, a piece of land in the
town of Hewitt which is very valuable.
Mr. Kennedy is going to make a game
reserve out of it. There are on it at the
present time four deer, twenty cotton
tail rabbits, seventeen jack rabbits and
four partridges drumming logs, and
many nests. There is also on the land
a tine frog pond.
A select party was held at the home
of Mr. Ingersoll on Friday of this week,
which was very largely attended. There
were about twenty-five couples present
and it proved one of the most enjoyable
ones held here for a long time.
Mr. Ingersoll, though possessed of a
good deal of this world’s goods, has no
thought of that, his whole aim is to be
happy and make those with whom he
comes in contact, happy also; this we
know to be the case from experience as
we had not danced in twenty years, but
we had to leave at home
and enter into the festivities of the
occasion, and soon we were feeling like
a tweuty-five-year-old and our better
half not a day over sixteen. Mr. Inger.
soli, though being a man of from forty
five to fifty, on Friday evening was in
the twenty class. We are sorry to re
late that Mr. Ingersoll and daughter
will soon go to the coast where they
will remain for a year. Mr. Ingersoll
is the owner of the farm formerly
owned by P. F. Curran, which is one of
the best farms in the county, and which
he recently rented to John Veldhorst
for a term of years. Mr. and Mrs.
Veldhorst are valuable auditions to our
town, being a young couple from the
southern part of this state and tine
entertainers. We cannot name ali
those that attended this party as space
will not permit, but will say that the
music was something splendid and was
by A. F. Webber and son. At twelve
o’clock, refreshments were served and
were in keeping with the rest of the
party. The neighbors for eight miles
came to this event. We would like to
attend about three a week of such par
ties. We were of the opinion, for some
time, that doctor Osier’s theory was a
good one to apply to old people, that is,
when a man got to be sixty years old.
to put him to death by some easy meth
od, but after the dance at Mr. Inger
soli’s we think a man is only as-old as
be thinks be is, and if you are in any
way sceptical or in doubt just try a
good dance all night and come home in
the morning with the best woman yon
ever saw and see if it does not make
you forty years younger.
Mr. and Mrs. Job, progressive people
of the town of Easton, visited for a
while with Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy, at
the corners, Sunday last. It does seem
nice for neighbors to visit and bring
their families along. Oh, for more of
this. J- H. K.

The trouble with most cough cures is
that they constipate. Kennedy’s Laxa
tive Cough Syrup does not constipate,
but on the other hand its laxative prin
ciple*7 gently move the bowels. It is
pleasant to take and it is especially
recommended for children, as it tastes
nearly as good"- as maple sugar. Sold
