charge of shot grazed tfie right side of
her head and ear. Her rght ear was
literally filled with shot holes. Dr. G.
A. Thielke of Wausau, who attended
her, succeeded in removing all the
shot from her head and found that
nearly every one was flattened in com
ing in contact with the skull. After be
ing shot the little girl went to the near
est house and the owners summoned
her parents, who brought her to Dr.

Last Thursday afternoon, at 5 o’clock,
Sept. 24tb, 1908, Miss Anna Gertrude
Harger, of this city, was united in mar
riage to Mr. George Edwin Diamond,
of Cripple Creek, Colorado,- the cere
mony taking place at the home of the
former’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W.
Harger, 603 Franklin street.
The home was handsomely decorated
with cut flowers, palms, ferns smilax
and autumn leaves; though charater
ized by the utmost simplicity, the event
was none the less brilliant.
At the appointed hour, the principals
of these most happy nuptials, presented
themselves, unattended, in the west par
lor for the ceremony, which was very
impressively performed by Rev. Dr.
William Dafter, an Episcopal clergy
man, of Marshfield, an old friend of
Mr. Harger, and in the presence, only,
of relatives of both families.
The bride wore a gown of white
lingerie, without ornaments, and car
ried bride roses.
Following the ceremony, the Colum
bia orchestra, which occupied a place
in the music room, played the march
from Lohengrin, and aftgr congratula

From 8:30 o’clock, old time friends
and neighbors came in to tender con
gratulations, and among them was the

member; they entered, singing the
bridal chorus from the “Rose Maiden,’’
with Miss Belle Heinemann at the piano.
Mr. and Mrs. Abercrombie accom
panied the club, the latter having also
at one time been a member of the same.
During the entire evening there was
music by the orchestra. Much interest
was manifested in the many handsome
wedding gifts, which included articles

□ The same evening at 11:15, Mr. and
Mrs. Diamond departed for Chicago
and from there will go to Kansas City,
for a brief visit before going to Cripple

at home to their friends after N>v. Ist.

where they boarded the train, the young
people had no chance to dispose of their
This city has always been the home of
the bride, who is the eldest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Harger, and the
only regret entertained by her hosts of
friends is that she will have to make
her home elsewhere tfian Wausau. iShe
was a graduate of the Cincinnati col
lege of music and bad taken an active
part in furthering the interests of Wau
sau in a musical way. For three years
she was supervisor of music in our city
schools, and resigned to accept a simi
lar-position in the city schools of Crip
ple Creek, Col., and it was while there
that she met Mr. Diamond. She is a
iqost estimable young lady who de
serves the fullest measure of happiness
The groom is interested in mining in
Cripple Creek and though he has made
only two brief visits here his genial
ways and recognized ability has won
for him lasting friends.
May sunshine, not storm, be theirs.

A PROPOSED ORD'NANCE.
The Pilot has prevously stated that
an ordinance will be presented to the
council for consideration which will
provide changes in the regulation of
the city’s water system. This ordi
nance will perhaps be introduced at the
next meeting of the council. By a
perusal of it we find the following
principal provisions boiled down so it
will fit in a nut shell: The system shall
be operated under the direction of the
water commission to consist of mayor,
three citizens and one alderman.
The commission shall appoint all em
ployes and make such regulations as it
The superintendent shall hold office
for such time as the commission sees
fit. He shall have general supervision
uuder the directionjof the commission.
The commission shall enforce rules
relative to use cf water and make an
nual report of true condition of system
in spring of each year.
Meter rates shall be established as
First l,f>oocubic feet (minimum,)s2 50.
Next 5,000 “ “ 17c per 100 cubic
Next 15,000 “ “ 13c “ “ “ ft.
Next at 5c per 100 cubic ft.
Water rents, except in special cases,
are due and payable in advance on the
first days of January and July of each
year. If rents are not paid within one
month, water will be turned off. In
fixing rates pa the number rooms basis,
all rooms except baths, halls and closets
are to be considered. Rooms excepted,
where used exclusively by one family
are considered private.
Here comes the most important part:
“All services which may hei’eafter be
connected, and all services which
have been heretofore connected with
the city waterworks system, shall be
connected with a water meter, pur
chased by the city at- the property own
er’s expense.” The work of connecting
the meters niust be paid for by the
property owner. Water rents where
meter rates have been placed, shall be
collected semi-annualy for the past six
months on January Ist and July Ist
each year. If rentals are not paid in
ten days a penalty of ten per cent, will
be charged, also 5 per ceut. treasurer’s
fees. Said dues shall be a lien on the
real estate until paid and shall be placed
in the tax roll as a delinquent tax
against the property.
Any persons violating any of the
rules and regulations, upon conviction
thereof, shall be subject to a tine not to
exceed $25 and costs of prosecution.
Water rents (once paid are not to be
refunded, except where consumer
moves away and water is turned off
by the city. In that event a rebate for
uuexpired time will be given.
“Water priveleges may be transferred
from one person to another. Street or
yard fixtures must not be converted
into jets or fountains, nor sfiall hose,
during sprinkling, be secured to auy
frame, post or other mechanical device
whatever but shall be held in the hand.
Revolving lawn sprinklers and other
like mechanical devices shall be used
only before 8 o’clock a. in. and from 5
o’clock p. m.”
From May 1 to Nov. 1 will constitute
the sprinkling year. The balance ox

work of plumbers, the care of appli

FIRE^AT FOND DU LAC.
Avery destructive fire visited Fond
du Lac last Saturday, at which time
some $250,000 worth of property was
destroyed. The fire started in what
was known as the Old Cresent Theater.
It was’being used as a garage. In this
building there were a half dozen large
automobiles, one belonging to Lieut.
Governor, W. D. Connor, which had
been left a short time previous. The
fire started near the Cod nor car and in
a moment its gasoliue tank exploded,
this filled the building with fire and
the tanks of the other cars were ex
ploded and before one could hardly
tell of it many buildings close to the
old theatre were on fire and the follow
ing properties were destroyed:
Crescent Automobile Cos., $50,000.
First Congregational church, $50,000.
St. Joseph’s Catholic church, $70,000.
St. Peter’s Lutheran church, $30,000.

the residents of Rev. F. J. Taugher, Dr.
L. Bishop, Fred Sexmith were badly
scorched. Oshkosh rushed to the as
sistance of her sister city on the lake

A great many people were disap
pointed last Friday evening when the
recital, which was to have been given
by Mrs. (Lula Janes) Abercrombie in
the First M. E. church, was postponed
at about the last moment, owing to a
severe cold which Mrs. Abercrombie
had contracted and which affected her
voice in such a manner as to make it
impossible for her to appear. How
ever, the date has again been set and
this time for Tuesday evening, Oct. 6tb,
when their many friends will have the
opportunity of hearing them.
