Millions of Michigan Timber Owned by Wisconsin Lumbermen- Logs will contmue to be hauled and manufactured along the Valley divi sion of the Milwaukee road for the next twenty-live years, according to a state ment made this week by a Valley rail road man, says the “Tomahawk.” It is said there are 500,000,000 feet of stand jg timber in the upper peninsula of Michigan belonging to lumbermen of the Wisconsin valley. This lumber will be cut during the next twenty-five years and manufactured into lumber. The heaviest timber owners are said to be the Alexander Stewart company of Wausau, the A H. Stnnge and W. H. Wright companies of Merrill, the Yaw key and Goodyear Lumber companies and the Menasha Wooden ware com pany. The Milwaukee road is planning to push the Ontonagon extension rapidly next year, so that the lumbermen can extend their logging operations into Michigan and have transportation to their sawmills in the Wisconsin valley. A part of the extension known as the “Blue Bell” line has already crossed the state line and extends several milec into Michigan. The Goodyear com pany, of Tomah, has moved its camps across the liue and already begun log ging iu Michigan. Several ofiicals of tho Milwaukee road, J. C. Miller, district master me chanic; Morton Smith, traveling en gineer; M. Parkinson, chief car tore man, all of Milwaukee, and E. H. Mor rison superintendent of the Valley di vision, and E. G. Aikins, trainmaster, of Wausau, passed through Tomahawk Monday on an inspecting trip. They were looking over the sidetracks, spurs and water tanks on the way, and went north U> inspect the “Blue Bell” line and plan improvements for the exten sion. The route of the extension has been surveyed for a number of miles beyond the completed portion.—Rhine lander Vindicator. HERMAN HARDELL. Herman Hardoll died last Wednes day at his home, 1208 Merrill Ave., the cause of death being given as heart trouble. Deceased was seventy-:hree years of age and had been in g-md health all his life, until his last brief illness. Mrs liar dell's father was oue of, if not the oldest, farmers of the town of Berlin. Born in Salm, Deutscher Krona Kreis, Germany, Herman Har dell came to this country with his par ents in August, 1836. The family set tled in Princeton for a brief period, while the father, Martin Hardell, came up into Marathon county and bought three 80-acre tracts of government land The following spring he brought the family here. There were few roads in this section at the time, and they had to cut out a path to their land, and at first their only habitation was a brush house. The boys worked witli the elder Har ilell and by hard aDd persevering toil they were not long in getting a clear ing started, and the old homestead is today one of the finest farms in the town of Berlin. As the children were married they were given a share of the farm as a reward for their early toil, and acquiring more they all soon had large farms. l'lte subject of this sketch was mar ried in Princeton in 1805 to Miss Han nah Krueger, who survives him, as do five children. About twenty-five years ago they moved to the town of Maine ant’ moated on a farm in what is now the city limits. It is one of the finest farms in the immediate vicinity of Wausau. Mr Hardell was always known as an upright, whole-souled, industrious man, and his many friends speak of him in the highest praise. The children surviving him are Mrs. Fred Haupt, Herman and Clara, of Wausau. Mrs. John Ross and Mrs. Al bert Brady, of Rhinelander, lie is also survived by two sisters and one broth er, Mrs. John Krienke, of the town of Berlin. Mrs. Frank Wartntnn and Julius Hardell. of this city. Funeral services were conducted at the home and at St. Stephen’s church Saturday morning, by the Rev. F. Wer hahn. Those who atteuded the ser vices front out of the city were Mr. and Mrs. John Ross and Mr. and Mrs. Al bert Brady ami Wm. Hardell, of Rhine lander, and Mrs. S. L. Mahard, of An tigo FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE Frank S. Bradford is a candidate for circuit judge in the Tenth judicial cir cuit, against Judge John Goodland. Mr. Bradford spent his boyhood days in Wausau and is well known to all of our old citizens. He has served as stenographer in Judge Goodland’s court for eighteen years. He studied law and was admitted to the bar several years ago. CAN PAY TAXES UNTIL JAN. 31. In refereuse to the payment of taxes, tne Record makes the statement that if taxes are not paid before Jan. Ist "an increase of two per rent will be charged ” This is wrong, taxes can be paid any time without an increase, un til January 31st, 1909, and including that day.

Ha usa u Wk Pilot PRISON HORRORS, Civil War History by One Who Lived In Wausau. A paper written by Gen. John Azor Kellogg, entitled, “Capture and Escape, a Narrative of Army and Prison Life,” has just been issued by the Wisconsin History commission. All our old resi dents will remember Gen. Kellogg. He came to W'ausau from wCrosse in 1875. He was a prominent memicr of the Marathon county bar and represented this district in the state senate in 1879 80. He was serving as district attorney of Juneau county when the civil war broke out and after assisting in raising a company of soldiers, which was as signed to the Iroh brigade, he was made a lieutenant. For meritorious service he was iu turn promoted from lieutenant to captain, lieutenant colonel and brigadier general. The Kellogg home in Wausau was on property now occupied by the Pilot oflice. When the Pilot editor pur chased the property the old home was moved off the lot and is now occupied by Mrs. A. P. Bailey, 612 Fourth street. The general died in this city Feb. 10, 1883. Besides being engaged in many minor battles Gen. Kellogg was with Bragg’s army at Antietum, Fredericksburg. Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, the four bloodiest of the war, in which the Iron brigade played so famous a part and made Wisconsin forever proud of that organization. May 5, 1861, while with the army of the Potomac ou the Rapidan, Capt. Kellogg, as he was then known, was ordered by Gen. Bragg with his com pany to report to Gen. Cutler for skirm ish duty, and was counseled by the gen eral to “take along plenty of orderlies and report frequently.” His report to Geu. Cutler was given in the office of the secretary of state at Madison while Gen. Lucius Fairchild was secretary, long after Appomattox. In his first skirmish Capt Kellogg and his company were overwhelmed by a regiment of the enemy, the Thirteenth Georgia, and marched oft - to the south, prisoners of war. His story tells of pris on experiences at Lynchburg, Danville and Macon, Ga. ; in Charleston, where with his fellow prisoners the capta n was placed under the tire of the federal guns by the rebels, and then the escape while enroute by train to another pris on at Columbia, S. C. Twice Capt. Kellogg had tried to es cape from prison by the tunnel route. The first time he stuck his head up on reaching the surface outside of the stock ade and found a rebel sentry looking at him. The second attempt was foiled by tint treachery of a fellow prisoner. <> ice before the captain and a party of and iriug spirits bad tried leapiug from a rapidly moving train on a down grade, only to be recaptured by dogs within a few days. The last and the successful attempt was made with Capt. John B. Vilet, Capt. Henry Spencer, Lieutenant and Adjutant Gough of the Tenth Wisconsin, and Lieutenant Hatcher, of the Thir teenth Ohio. Managing to pick the percussion caps from the rifles of their guards the men boldly leaped off into the darkness as the train swept through a belt of forest and, although scattered along for many rods, the live escaped unhurt. Then follows the story of wanderings covering over 350 miles through the swamps and across the rivers of the southland in October; many times half famished; chewing ripened corn from the ear as they traveled by night and slept out by day; wading down streams to throw off the dogs with whieh they were hunted, footsore, without enough clothing to cover their nakedness, but ever pressing on with indomitable resolution to escape or be kil'ed rather than return to a rebel prison pen. It is a story which thrills, every page of it. On the very first night the party became separated and it was not until they were sent to Chattanooga, after regaining the union lines, that they found Gough Vliet had reached that place one day after the three arrived at Calhoun, Ga. So disreputable was the appearance of the three that union officers refused to believe their story when they came un der the old tlag again, and they were being sent to the guard honse when Capt. Kellogg happened to hem the First Wisconsin cavalry mentioned and de manded to be brought before some of its officers. The regiments of the other t-vo had been mustered out of the service. Dur ing his experiences as a rebel prisoner the captain had been twice promoted, first to major of his regiment, and less than two months later to be its Jieuten ant colonel, which position he assumed on his return to the service. Soon after he was made colonel and in February, 1365, succeeded Gan. Bragg as com mander ‘■'f the reorgonized Iron brigade when the general was sent to Washing ton.

Powers Tells in a Very Interest ing Way, of the Country in which He Has Spent a Considerable Time Dar ing the Past Few Months. Friesd Gene: It occurs to me I promised you a. ommunication on Okla homa upon my leaving for that land of sunshiae, oil wells and Indians, on my recent trip, but I found little time and less inclination while on the trail. 1 am now pleased to make good my word, however, and trust your readers may pardon you for iutiictiug me upon them Oklahoma, the baby in the family of states, the most recent addition to Uncle Sam’s galaxy of stars, is about as lusty a youngster as ever kicked off swaddling clothes and essayed to shape its own footsteps. Because of its loca tion it is sometimes, and appropriately, too, called “the gateway of the South.” It is indeed, a happy medium in the wav of climate, and because of this and its wonderfully fertile soil, all crops that can be grown in the North or in the South can be successfully grown in Oklahoma. "When the thermometer hits the high spots, along in July or August, the record shows from 90 to 100 degrees Farenheit; but do you know 1 experi enced a couple of weeks of this brand of weather there last summer and did not seem to mind it as much as I would 5 or 10 degrees cooler in Wausau; there ing less humidity in the air, most always a little breeze and tbe evenings cool enough to enable one to sleep well. They tell me a case of sunstroke was □ever known iu Oklahoma Jack Frost very seldom pays a visit to this favored land, and when he does his calls are short and not severe. Snow is quite a curiosity, and when there is a slight fall it quickly fades away before the cheery rays of a southern sun No state in the union was ever more talked about in her maiden days than is Oklahoma todav; no state was ever more endowed oi favored by nature, and no state ever started out with so magnificent a bid of rights. The Oklahoma constitution has been much jeered at and much misrepresent ed ; but when the uatu is known, no fair-minded man can deny it is the best and most progressive the nation affords; and tbe laws made by the state’s first legislature last winter are as a rule very excellent ones. Very true, some of their restrictions on corporations appear rather severe, but when fully understood they are found to be pos sessed of considerable merit. Asa sample of Oklahoma’s corporation laws, I will cite oue bearing on land holding This law says no corporation can own or hold land, except town sites; thus striking a idling blow against land monopoly. It also discourages laud grabbing by individuals for there is a graduated land tax which continually grows heavier on all holdings over one section. Governor Haskell, who was much in the public eye during the recent pres idential campaign, because of his wordy warfare with President Roosevelt, played a leading part in the building of the new state’s constitution and the framing of her laws. He is a born tighter, a shrewd politician and a mighty brainy fellow, whatever may be his shortcomings or his mistakes. The writer had a friendly visit with him and carried away this impression, that any man, lie yet a rough rider or a yel low journalist, who crosses Haskell’s path, he will know when the fray is over that he Ins been in the “biggest bear fight” of his i'fe. As the governor himself remarked, he may sometimes be worsted, but he never quits; he is game to the core. Some of the good things a bountiful nature dropped in the lap of fair Okla horua are a wealth of oil and natural gas, the greatest known to the world; unlimited quantities of coal, vast bodies of iron, zinc, lead, asphalt, gypsum, salt, granite and building stone, and considerable areas of timber, both pine and hardwood. Last year the output of petroleum was 50,000,030 barrels, the greatest ever produced by any state The development continues and there appears to be no limit to the number of gushers Oklahoma may yet lay claim to. The natural gas wells are also great producers, and some cities are offering gas to manufacturing enterprises at as •low as three cents per thousand cubic feet. In the gas territory the people of the cities, and the farmers as well, use gas exclusively for light and heat. By the way, it is in the eastern part of the state of Oklahoma, in what was be fore statehood known as Indian Terri tory, that all of these great gifts of nature are found. The western part, the old Oklahoma territory, is a prairie section like Kansas and equally rich in an agricultural way. The Indian Ter ritory part of the state was the property of the Indians, and it was not until the restrictions wore removed last July permitting them to sell their land*, that re.J farmers began to move into the country, and get possession of the land. Previous to that time the Indians who would rather 9tarve than work, rented their lands to stock raisers or itinerant farmers who in most instances scarcely made what might fairly be termed a bluff at tilling the soil. Oklahoma contains millions of acres of .as fine fanning lands as ever the eye of man feasted on aneit is most all for sale at prices that make it a circa? day bargaio. The information will soon permeate the entire county and then, in a few years, Oklahoma will be the great garden spot of the southwest, where are now tenants' shacks, will soon be com fortable farm houses; the beautiful roll ing praries, with their patches of woods here and there and everywhere, will be dotted by school houses %nd churches and a prosperous citizenship will have replaced the ."squaw man'' and the shiftless renter. Wausau men who have recently visited Okla homa have shown their faith in her by investing in her agricultural lands. Dr. B. H- Conlin purchased a farm of eighty acres; 7. E Powers one hun dred and sixty-eight acre*, and the writer is now negotiating for the pur chase of as eighty acre tract, with the prospect at getting an adjoining eighty later from n foil blood Indian if he can OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO. ITEMS OF INTEREST WHICH WERE PUBLISHED IN WAUSAU OVER FORTY YEARS AGO. ABRIL 14, 1866. The village is filled with men waiting to take a trip out of the river. Quite a crowd assembled at Plumer’s new saw mill on Sunday to see it start. It worked like a charm. (This is the old mill recently torn down by the Wausau Strtet Railroad company and which sawed its last log in the spring of 1807 ) Wild ducks have just made their appearance, also a few flocks of wild pigeons. Our assemblyman, B G. Plumer, re turned last evening. APRIL 21, 1866. The “old Wisconse” is up to the highest notch and higher at this place and threatens great damage. On Mon day and T ieslay the weather was very warm at, 1 in set in on the last day, and tbe Loxt morning the water was running over the guard lock. On Thursday the new slide ou the falls was washed out, and all but the bottom and the fingers were destroyed. The bridge over the main channel went out, the piers being strucK by cribs of new lum ber, on their way down stream without pitot or steersman. The surface of the river at this time being completely cov ered with running ice, logs, machinery, cribs of lumber and rapids pieces From the machinery, etc., it was evi dent mills above had been washed away and it was soon learned that the mills at Jenny had been destroyed. The rain continued and the river kept ou rising; men in large numbers worked on the guard lock. People on Shingle street moved off with their goods. It was thought the guard lock had to go. Asa last resort the dam at Thayer’s mill, (where McEachron’s mill is now) was partially torn out, this lowered the water at the guard lock several inches. The east end of the guard lock was swept away this morn ing at four o'clock and let through a force of water sufficient to sweep away everything before it, along Shir.gle street and the bridge below, teariDg out the pier dam and conductor be tween Plumer’s and Clarke’s mills, a part of Clarke’s mill and some lumber and logs. There is great damage at Goodhue’s mill, on the Eau Claire. It looks bad. Mr. Babcock, the artist, has taken excellent views of Big Bull falls. ■ april 28, 1866.

Wm. died at the Central House Wednesday evening, after an illness of aoout ten days with pneu monia. Deceased was thirty-eight years of age and had been a resident of Wausau for about fifteen years. When the Spanish American war broke out he accompanied Cos. G to Porto Rico as an artificer, and remained with that organization until its return borne. The following year he was married to a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gotlieb An deres. He was located for about two years in Cody, Wyo., and returned here last May, later purchasing a bowliDg alley on Scott street, which he operated up to the time of his death. The re mains were shipped to Columbus, Wis., Thursday evening for burial. Mem bers of the Spanish American War Veterans’ association acted as pall bearers at the services in this city. Mr. Bolger was a fine appearing man physically and always on joyed good health up to his recent illness. Socially he was well liked by all his acquaint ances. CITY’S TAXES.

Medicine Tnat is Medicine “I have suffered a good deal with ma laria and stomach complaints, bat 1 have now found a remedy that keeps me well, and that remedy is Electric Bitters, a medicine that is medicine for stomach and liver troubles, and for run down conditions,'’ says W. C. Kiestler. of Halliday, Ark. Electric Bitters puri fy and enrich the blood, tone np the nerves, and impart vigor and energy to the weak. Your money will be refunded if it fails to help you. 50c at W. W. Albers’ dreg store the Waired island is entirely cut off from the village except by boat. In order to get there, persons have to take passage at the ferry landing ard go clear around the head of the Mclndoe island (now Barker A- Stewart’s) and land at the bridge bet weeu Birdelt’s and Thayer’s, (at the head of Clarke’s island.) The inhabitants are anxiously looking for the water to fall so that a footpath can lie built across the slough. I'nele John Bardelt, says that he has just paid his village license, *25 in greenbacks, and now it is uot fair to be cut off entirely from the vM'age custom. The mill owners got together on Wednesday and were unanimous against high water, as in fact, water in any shape or quantilv. Not so much damage was done on the Eau Claire as at first reported, only the old part of the Goodhue mill was carried away. The damage on the stream is slight compared with that on the Wis consin. William l’hilbrick lost about 80,(>K> shingles in the Hood. This was quite a loss inasmuch as Mr. Philbrick has not fully recovered from the fracture of his leg which happened to him the past winter. (Mr. Philbrick is still a resi dent of Wausau.) The Thayer grist mill will soon be in operation again. What was done to his dßm did not save the guard lock. Had the dam been entirely taken out, the grist mill property would have been swept bare to the rocks. The dam was built to stay and had the guard lock been so constructed, it might have said to the waters of “Old Wisconse” to all eternity, “thus far shalt thou come and no farther.” Two Germans got into a quarrel at Mosinee during the past week. Sheriff Wilson arrested one of them and took him before Squire Gouldsbury. The matter was finally adjusted. (Win. Wilson is still a resident of Wausau and resides iD the same block That he did when Sheriff forty-two years ago. He has lived here for over half a century and is still a hale and hearty man.) Alphonso Poor is constructing a ferry boat, to ferry passengers, etc., across the river. Foot passengers at present have to go across in skiffs. Ferry land ing will be near the mouth of Stinch field creek. Present landing is just above Grant street. ( Mr. Poor was a resident of Wausau for a great many years, end a veteran of the civil war. He was au uncle of Mrs. 8. M. Quaw. His home was on the .vest side of the river opposite where now stands the Barker & Stewart mill. He died Jan. 3, 1871. COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE.- DANCY. V. Brooks transacted business in Wausau the past week. Mrs. L. 11. Foubare, of Miuocqua, visited relatives in Dancy over Christ mas. Percy Cleveland, our very popular depot agent, spent Christmas at his home at Grand Rapids. The Misses Martha, Johanna and Lonie Kluig, of Stevens Point, visited over Sunday with their parents in this village. Miss Eila Marchel visited over Sunday with friends in Mosinee. Miss Gladys Altenburg, who is attend ing the Normal at Stevens Point, is spending the holidays at her home in this village. Christmas passed oil quietly iu anil around this burg. Santa Claus was as generous as in other years, and every one seemed happy. What more could be wished for? The good sleighing which has pre vailed the past week has made business good. Large quantities of railroad ties are being gotten out. Owing to the present low price of hemlock and pulp wood none of that will be marketed at this place the present season. Dr. Fi3b, of Mcwioee, was a profes sional caller in Dancy, Saturday. The entertainment which was given Christmas eve by the school children of this place under the direction of Mrs. Wilson Petty was a success iu every particular. There ware two large Christmas trees loaded down with all kinds of good things, which, together with baskets of fruit, candies and nuts which were passed around at intervals, all tended towards keeping the audience in the best of spirits. The children who Look part in the entertaiument, which consisted of songs, recitations, drills, tableaux, etc., all did splendid. Much credit is due Mrs Petty through whose efforts the success of the entertainment was brought about, and also to Miss Evelyn L. Knolier who assisted in capacity of organist. All the dredge boats working on the Dancy drainage district have closed down for the winter months and the contractor, Chas Forrestal, has gone to his home at Milwaukee. During the past year about six miles of mam ditch was dng and about thirty miles of laterals. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the esr.
