An Aged. Citizen. Beloved ar i B - spected, Passes Away on. Sunday. Oct. 4, 1903. John Nelson James, after a loi„ per iod of ill health, caused by his advanced age, died at the home of his son, E. P. James, on Sunday -evening at 7:30 o’clock. Mr. James had been a resi dent of Wausau for eleven years and a good deal of that time was active, mingling with our people day times and evenings, and he became known to many. His proverbial cheerfulness; his varied life as a soldier, a farmer and a business man, made hint an interest ing person with whom to spend a pleas ant hour, and he therefore had a wide circle of very warm friends who deeply mourn his death. John Nelson James was born at Vil lianovia, Cataragus county, New York, July 30th, 1827, and was the eldest of a family of eight children, all of whom are dead with the exception of one sis ter, Mrs. Celia L. Bush, of Columbus, Wis. His wife, Mary Hays James, died in Wausau in March, 1898. Of their family of six children, three are still living, being Emmet W., of lowa, Chas. P. aud Elroy M., of Wausau. His line of ancestry dates back to the revo lutionary war anu to the pld Puritan stock, and among his immediate ances tors were several very eminent divines noted for their consecration and ability in pulpit and pastoral work. Mr. James came to the southern part of Wisconsin in 1844, settling on a farm and living the life of a pioneer. He was always active in church work, hav ing been superintendent of Sunday schools and leader of the music for many years, and to his faithfulness is largely due the continuance of the church organization at his old home in Hampden, Wis. He served four years in the civil war and has been an hon ored member of Cutler Post, G. A. R., in this city since be moved to Wausau to make his home with his sons about eleven years ago. He enlisted in July, 1861, as a private in Company I, 18th Wis. Inf. and was promoted to First Duty Sargeant and received his baptismal lire at Pittsburg Landing, April 6th and 7th, 1862, the 18th being one of the several Wisconsin regiments reaching that historic battle field but a very few days pi'evious to the battle. Mr. James was discharged for disability after a service of many months. He came home, recovered his health and in 1864 re-enlisted in the First Wisconsin Artillery, as chief musician* in which capacity he served until the close of the war, being mustered out in the summer of 1865. The funeral was held from the home of his son, C. P. James, at 520 Hamilton street, at 9:30 o’clock this Tuesday morning, being in charge of Cutler Post, the Rev. -F. H. Brigham officiat ing. The remains were then taken to the St. Paul depot and from there to Columbus, Wis , his old home, tnere to be laid at rest beside those of his wife and children. His sister, Mrs. Bush, and grand-daughter and two sons and their families, who were at his bedside, accompanied the remains to Columbus, where further services will be held in the old church at Hampden, Wis. The pall-bearers were J. A. Jones, S. S. Messervey, R H. Johnson, Henry Grob, Jos. Quimby and D. M. Maxson. CUT HIS THROAT. Andrew Karczmarek, a resident of the town of Cassel, died yesterday morning as a result of an attempt at self destruction Karczmarek, who lived about one and one-half miles east of Edgar, disappeared Friuay morniDg before breakfast. When he did net re turn his delayed absence caused his family some worry. Noon time came and still he did not return. Inquiry had previously been made of his father who resides about a mile distant from the son’s home, it being thought the son might be visiting with his father, but he was not. After dinner the town officers were notified and a search was made for the missing man, suicide be ing expected as he had made an attempt once before to end his life. The search ing party could not find him. On Satur day morniDg Karczmarek’s wife went out behind the barn and found him ly ing not far distant, there being a large slit iu his throat and he being very weak from loss of blood. She assisted him into the bouse and medical aid was summoned. As the wind pipe and several of the smaller arteries wex - e severed there was no hope of saving the man’s life, but he lived until yesterday morning. He was ab(p to make known to those around him what ./as on his mind and could give no reason for attempting suicide except that he was tired of life. He was about fifty years of age and besides bis wife and father he is survived by seven children. Since attempting to hang himself a few years ago he had displayed unmistak able signs of an unsound mind. SHOT HIS DAUGHTER. Gottlieb Will, a German residing on a farm bordering the thoroughfare which traverses that part of the town of Texas lying between Brokaw and the Men ill road, acci dently shot his daughter Ottilie, last Saturday afternoon. The girl, with other children, was out near a strip of, woodland and saw a porcupine in a tree. They went to the house and in formed her older brother. The father, who works nights in the papermili and who sleeps in the daytime, arose about that time and learning of the porcupine he secured a repeating rifle of large calibre. The rifle was loaded and had been buried in a pile of potatoes to keep it out of the way of the children. After grasping the rifle in bis hands the rifle was exploded, just how no one seems to know. Ihe bullet struck the little girl over the right hip, passed through the abdomen and came out in front. Physicians were at once summoned from th’s city and the wound dressed, but there was little hope of saving the girl. She passed away at about 2:30 Sunday morning.

Uncle Sam is going to throw open nearly a million acres of land to the public in the famous Rosebud country in South Dakota. Each person is to have a chance on a 160 acre slice. The land will cost the person who enters it $6 00 an acre, and land adjoining it is worth from $20.00 to $30.00 per acre. A writer in the Chicago Record-Herald tells of the procedure as follows: “As the apportionment is by lot all who wish to try for a farm are required to go witnin the Dext twelve days to one of the several towns near the bor der of the Rosebud Indian reservation designated by the government and register their names. Tne registration will continue' from Oct. 5 to Oct 17. Then on Oct. 19 the names • will be put in a great wheel at Dallas, S D., and the first drawn out will be entitled to choose any quarter section in the entire district to be opened, and the second drawn will have sfecond choice and so on. In the great drawing in Oklahoma in 1901 the first choice fqll to a struggling clerk, who took a rich quarter section said then to be worth $40,000, as it ad joined Lawton, on the only side the town could spread. The second choice went to a telephone girl, and her choice was considered worth more than $25,000 It is said that the first hundred choices in the Rosebud country will carry with them rich prizes in land ownership.” Mark Seboltield and Louis Baker, of this city, went to Dallas, South Dakota, last week and today Rufus Manson and Carl Adams leave for Dakota to try their luck. All but Mark will try to secure an entry, and he would but cannot on account of being too young. It is thought that there will be fully 200,000 citizens who will make application for a chance to get one of the 160 acre tracts. CONCERT FRIDAY EVENING. The concert given by Mrs. Charlotte Lynn Campbell, at the Methodist church last Friday evening, was most thorough ly enjoyed by the audience present. Mrs. Campbell has a voice of splendid rich ness and power and her understanding and interpretation of the songs were such as to delight the musical audience aud win for her their hearty applause. Mrs. Campbell has spent several years ‘abroad in both study and concert work, and has been associated with many of the world’s greatest siogers, and the audience congratulated themselves,up on the opportunity to hear so talented a musician. Mrs. Witter, of Grand Rapids, proved herself a splendid ac companist, seeming to comprehend with the singer the proper interpreta tion of the songs.

Wausau lost the foot ball game at Antigo, Saturday, by the score of 10-0. The game was the first of the seasoD and conseeuently rather slow. Wausau made good gains on the line punts and long forward passes but lost ground on the short passes. In the first hall, Althen and Morman made frequent ten yard gains, but Wausau was never able to reach Autigo’s twenty-five yard line. The first touch down was made near the eud of the first half by Ray worth who slid across the line with a punt. There is some doubt as to whether the punt fell within the bounds or not but it was decided in favor of Antigo. In the second half Antigo bad the ball most of the time, getting it on forward passes. Antigo used the forward pass only twice and made their best gains on end runs, with Drake carrying the ball. The second touchdown was made by Rudolph. The line-up is as follows: Wausau Antigo Lam pert c Benisht Dean - rg Brush Reiser 1 g Byrne Gearhart r t Kolis Sampson It F. Stewart Alexander 1 e Rayworth Taugher re C.

James, President, The James Music Cos., Wausau, Wis. My Dear Mr. James : Allow me to thank you for the delightful entertainment afforded me yesterday in listening to the voices of my friends and co-workers in the concert field as given on the Victor machine. I had not thought it possible to reproduce so perfectly, yet the voices of Gadski, Melba, Caruso, Evan Williams and others whom 1 have often heard in public and with whom I have sung come from the instrument so clear and natural that I was afforded great delight in listening to them, and believe that one can make a study of these great singers and of the operas sung to a better advantage with one of these instruments than would be obtained from listening to the singers themselves, for a closer study can be had and with such perfect reproduction there is nothing left to be desired. Again thanking you for the delightfhl treat, 1 am, Sincerely your friend, Charlotte Lynn Campbell. The above is entirely unsolicited and is of immense import to all who may be interested in securing enjoyment and culture of the best for their homes.

Police officers of Stevens Point cap tured two chicken thieves Saturday morning. One of them proved to be a fellow well known to the police of this city— Chas. Damon. The two had been suspected for a long time and a trap was set for them which they fell into. When arrested Damon was carrying a bloody sack containing seven chickens. Both men had loaded revolvers on their persons. Whet, arraigned in court they pleaded not guilty to the charge. The last escapade of the Damon family in this city was when the above mentioned was found guilty of stealing hides from the warehouse of Fay Slocum, and while confined in jail developed signs of insanity caused by being cutoff from his supply of morphine to which habit he is addicted. He was sent to the state hospital, Winnebago, and later the authorities took his children awav from his wife because, as was alleged, she is not a fit person to rear them. Stevens Point is welcome to the society of this family as far as Wausau is con cerned.
