He has been at work for the Under wood Veneer Cos. for some time, and it was while in the employ of that com pany that he was injured. Part of his duties have been to feed factory scraps and waste material into a conveyor leading to the boiler room, where the refuse is burned, in developing steam. Friday morning he got caught in the conveyor amt was carriee to the open ing in the wall where it enters the en gine room. The opening was just large enough for the conveyor chain to pass through. Consequently when the body reached the opening nad to give—it could not pass tnrough. The result was that Briek’s left arm was lorn from his body, at the elbow socket. The Hesh was also torn off his right leg, so that the bone was exposed. After the accident Brick was able to walk into the factory and lie down un til a physician arrived. Later he Was removed to St. Mary’s hospital. He will be laid up for a long time. He has a wife aud live children depending on n : -;iaui.* for a livlihood. POST OFFICE RECEIPTS. The total receipts for the local post office for the past twelve months shows a big gain over the year 1907 The busi ness of the Wausau post office has been increasing steadily for years, but not withstanding the close times of the past year, 1908 has been a record break er. The books ol the office show that during the twelve months ending De cember 31 a total of $35,7*23 84 was re ceived at the local post office, as against 332,19(1 40 for 1907, or a gain of $3,527 44 The receipts for the last quarter were $10,054 2(1, the highest amount ever reached by the Wausau post office for a like period. The business of the local office lor the past quarter leaves a clear prefit to Uncle Sam of $5,394 81. Six days previous to Christmas the busi ness amounted to $1,140 40, as against $642 58 for a like period in 1907, ora gain of $497 82. The lc stamps sales for the same period amounted to 26.000 as against 18,590 or nearly double that of last year. Most of these damps were purchased by those sending Christmas greetings in the way of souvenir postal cards. Judging from the present ratio of in crease in business, it will be but a few years when vVausau is placed in the lirst class. To gel in that class tbe re ceipts of the post office must average at least SIO,OOO per quarter Several cities in Wisconsin, smaller than VVausau, are in the first class, but they are homes of large institutions which buy thousands of dollars worth of stamps each year. One patent medicine firm alone in llaeine, together with local business, places that city in the first class. Man ufacturing interests in Beloit and Janes ville, both smaller than VVausau, place those cities in the first class. ANNUAL MEETING. Oo Friday evening the annual meet ing of the M. E.

A STRANGE ANIMAL Walter F/adt, of Texas. Gives a Des cription of the ’Gaglum.” Said by the Negroes to be about as Fero cious as Shepherd’s "Hodag.” Bayside, Texas, Jan. 3rd, 1909. Friend ’Gene : it will, perhaps, interest you ami the readers of the Pilot to learn of a strange animal called the “Gaglum” which inhabits the coast of Texas, 'fhe story has this merit, that it is strictly true. I have never dealt in tiction for “truth being straDger than fiction,” allows of much larger latitude in story telling and writing. Soon after coming to Texas last sum mer, 1 used to hear the old settlers, the sailors, aud also the Negroes tell of a very strange animal, that on account of its rarity ami nocturnal habits, was seldom seen. According to the tales of sailors and Negroes, it ct ..Id swim in the water, flv in the air and was equally at home on land. At lirst I paid very little attention to their yarns, thinking that it was merely done to fool a tender foot; but I noticed that the Negroes seemed averse to discussing the subject, seemed frightened at the very mention of the name “Gaglum.” and at last, getting “next” to an old Negro by the name of Uncle Henry, said to bo about 120 years old, and who was a slave in Texas, “long Wfoe the wab,” 1 learned from him that such an animal actually existed and Uncle Henry hnd, on at least two occasions, seen one. He farther explained to me that all Negroes looked upon the animal with supersti tious dread and awe, being afraid to even discuss the subject with white folks and t h e name, “Gaglum,” given to the animal was a name c,f terror to the Negroes, something to conjure with, expressing to the superstitious and partially developed mind of a Negro the very limit, of terror, even as the name “Stalwart,” was not long ago terrifying to a certain class of people who kow towed and bowed down to a certain grand Llama called “Bawb,” —now only a political reminiscence. It was, however, my good fortune to see a specimen of the dreaded animal, and while not near so alarming as rep resented by sai.ors and Negroes,, was certainly a strange and curious animal. Early one morning, 1 bad concealed myself in a clump of bushes on a point of land running out into the bay and at the foot of a bluff, and was waiting for ducks and geese, when 1 hor.rd a tre mendous noise on the bluff and down, out of the brush came the most curious animal I had ever seen; it was about fourteen feet in length with a head very much in shape like that of a mule, only much larger; had long, front .egs, end ing in feet and claws like a bear and was covered with hair, back to its -boulders and to the middle of its body where armor, like that on an anna dillo, commenced aud covered the rest of its body, hiud legs and tail; its tail being like that of an alligator and its bind legs were very short and ended in web feet like an enormous goose; but the most curious part of the animal was its mouth aud eyes. Its mouth opened, not up aud down like a mule or horse, but the other way or sideways and opened clear to its eyes, for it stopped about thirty feet from me an.t began eating a cactus or prickly pear, show ing its mouth and tongue to be like sheet-iron, for cactus is covered with prickers and spines, hatd as fish hooks, lu my eagerness to see and examine the animal I made a little noise, when it turned its eyes full upon me; its eyes were fully three inches in diameter and one was black as midnight and the oth r a light piuk, giving a most strauge and uncanny look to the animal, but the expression of its face was otherwise mild and benevolent, like a cow chew ing her cud, and not tierce aud ferocious as represented by the Negroes. When the “Gaglum” saw me, it immediately ran and plunged into the waters of the bay and very quickly disappeared, swimming with incredible swiftness. 1 can get a sworn affidavit from an old sea captain by the name of Capt. Sam Gray, a man whose reputation for truth and veracity is second only to mine, to whom 1 showed the place where the “Gaglum " eat the cactus, and we followed the tracks back on the bluff far enough to convince ourselves that the animal had come overland from the Aransas river, a distance of three miles and we further found where it had not only devoured cactus and Spanish bay onet, but had pulled off aud devoured several rods of barbed wire fence where the Aransas river branch is divided from Bayside. I have constructed a trap which is al most certain to capture the “Gaglum,” but to be successful must have to use as bait, either a “Hodag,” or a live snow snake and have no doubt but that in the interests of science, ’Gene Shephard, of Rhinelander, will send me by express, prepaid, one of the above for bail. In the event of its capture, ’Gene shall have an undivided one-half interest in the “Gaglum” and together we will re christen it and ’Gene shall be its God father.

Editor Pilot: I have no desire to enter into a news paper controversy with “Nimrod” over the present game laws, but as it is a subject of considerable importance to the people of Northern Wisconsin in particular, the discussion of amending the present game laws affectiDg the killing of deer will tend to crystalize public opinion and so be of some value to the legislators of the state. In a former article, recently pub lished, I suggested that the laws relat ing to the killing of deer be amended, so thatpnly bucks could be killed, and only one buck to each hunter. 1 also suggested that the long-range rille be excluded, if possible. Incidentally, I said that at present, hunting was a very dangerous pastime, owing partly to ihe long-range gun and partly to the proneness of hunters to shoot at every moving object they see. I shall have no quarrel with “Nimrod” as to my ignorance of the subject of hunting, being willing to leave that to the read er to judge for himself. Though “Nimrod” does not say so in so many words, the tone of his article conveys the idea that he is opposed to the principle of one deer, and that a buck, to each hunter. Why a true sportsman should object to cutting down the amount of game to each hunter, where it is plainly evident that that particular kind of game is fast be coming extinct, I cannot see. To my mind, one deer is plenty. Ido not see why a real spoilsman should want more. Ignorant as I may be of hunters and game, 1 have never met a true sportsman but who was perfectly satis fied to get one deer. And most huuters —real sportsmen—that I have any ac quaintance with, prefer that deer to be a buck. Real sportsmen go into the woods more to secure the antlers of a buck than for the purposes ol’ stocking up their larder with deer meat I can conceive of a farmer with a large fam ily, struggling to make a farm in North ern Wisconsin, with no catt-le to kill and but scant means to provide meat for his family, would desire to be able to lay in a supply of meat from two or more deer, but a real sportsman never. Or in other words, the man who needs meat for his family and has no other means to provide it but hunt it in the woods, the more he would be allowed to kill, the better for him and his family. If I was a game warden and I knew that “Nimrod” needed meat for his family and had no means other than to secure it in the woods, I would wink at his violations of the law rather than to see his family go hungry. But I take “Nimrod” at his word, that he is a sportsman, and in my judgment all h&. should be allowed to kill in a season is one deer and that a buck. If “Nimrod” got one deer a year he would then get more than his share, as there is not deer enough in Northern Wisconsin to give every head of a family only one deer. This being the case, and though others may think different, I think one deer to each hunter enough and plenty. “Nimrod” says the lav; limiting the killing of deer to bucks only, cannot be enforced. To my mind that seems the easiest. As I said in my former article, the possession of a doe would he prima facie evidence that the hunter had vio lated the law. The trouble now with the enforcement of the game laws is to secure the evidence that will lonvict the violators. As “Nimrod” says, deer is being hunted with dogs, killed at “licks” and bunted in the night time with artificial light, all in violation of law, because of the difficulty in secur ing the necessary evidence to convict. Not so with the provision for killing only bucks, for reasons already stated, and which are obvious. The hardships of the hunter mentioned by “Nimrod” is hardly germane to the question. Sportsmen go out for game and must, perforce, hunt. Whether the sportsman chooses to follow the deer on the trail or stand on a runway, is matter of choice with him: but “Nimrod” to the con trary, notwithstanding the real sports man does not, or should not, shoot un til he was sure of the object he was shootiug at was a deer. Then, of course, blaze away. 1 admire tbe nerveof “Nimrod” when be says that accidents during the deer hunting season “are rare, nearly all the hunting accidents being caused from the careless and ignorant handling of lire arms.” The hunting season opens Sept. Ist and by Oct Ist, as the official records of the county clerks in Northern Wisconsin will show, 95 per cent, of hunting licenses are taken out. Pre sumably all those who have, by the lirst of October, provided themselves w th hunting licenses, hunt during October and the first part of November, but it (a not tili the deer season opens when the slaughter and maiming of human Ireings begins. This fact is so well known that it is hardly necessary to call attention to it. If this annual slaughter and msimingof human beiDgs is, as “Nim rod” asserts, wholly due to carelessness, more the reasons for placing further restrictions upon the careless I’ll wager that if a ninety-day jail sentence stared in the face the hunter found with a doe in his possession, that bunt ing accidents would not be any greater during the deer-hunting season than during Sep tember and October. 1 may be ignoront of the nature of “hunters, game and fire arms” and so may not be able to appreciate “Nim rod's” contention that a rille that will kill at a mile is more merciful than a ride that will kill at twenty rods, but really I can't see any difference. 1 cannot ! either get it into my bead that a bullet which penetrates the vital organ of some animal is less painful when pro pelled by smokeless powder than when so propelled by black powder, but per haps “Nimrod's ' contention is correct. 1 know a great many sportsmen who ’ make the same mistakes as ‘"Nimrod ” They are very solicitors shout the j preservation of the game oi Northern j Wisconsin and the enforcement of tbe ! game laws, but when some ignoramus OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO. ITEMS OF NEWS BOILED DOWN FROM THE PILOT NEARLY FIFT Y YEARS AGO SATURDAY, MAY 2(5, 1866. New Improvements— Thegreat f; esh et of this spring has made it necessary for many improvements: In the first place our lumbermen have come to the conclusion to do away with all timber work about the transit over Big Bull Falls aud blast a channel through the rock, for running their lumber. I rank M. Andrews has under taken the work and has so far pro gressed with it that success is as sured, and that within a few weeks at the most the work will be completed. N.B Thayer has his new dam com pleted and his llouriDg mill iD opera tion again. The building of tht dam was superintended by Wm. Gowan and it is done in a most workmanlike and excellent manner. Geo. G. Green lias charge of rebuild ing tbe guard lock and has already made a fair start on the work. The dam and bridge leading to the Plumer island : s nearly completed, it is superintended by 1). W. C. Mitchell and Mike Rou si an. B. G. P.umer, v ellows & Brown and John C Clarke s •at work getting out materials for repairing the damage done to their dam and mills. The new bridge over the main river is to be commenced next week, and will employ every spare man in the county Geo. Ruder is putting in a very large addition to his brewery. Chas. A. Single is making exteusive improvements in his hotel. Thos. Youles and Chas. Hoellinger are both making large additions to their residences. Everybody can find work to do and things look even more promising than before the “big fresh” gavv. us such a scooping out. On Thursday, May 26, liICG, a great forest lire was raging in the woods east of the village which came very neaf burning up the buildings on the poor farm. Aug Kickbusch, Cbm. of the county board, procured a number of hands aud by hard work saved the building and most of the fences. Michael Duffy commences on his con tract of running the U. S. mail between Wausau and Stevens Point on June Ist He will reduce the fare to the lowest possible rate, and will make a popular manager. On Thursday, May 24, 1860, a little son of Geo. Ruder was terribly burned while playing in a field south of town. Some person had been burning logs and the little fellow walked into the ashes thinking the fire was all out. His legs were burned in a shocking man ner. He will recover but it will take some time. SATURDAY, JU K 2d, IS6G. Peter Lemmer, 17 years old, son of John Lenlmer of Marathon, met with anaccident on Sunday, May 27, which proved fatal two days afterwards. like myself suggests stricter enforce ment of the present laws, or bettering those laws, for the preservation of game, that is “impracticable.” I like to hunt aud fish, but so far, I have never eared a great deal whether I ever got any fish or game. Igo out for the recrea tion and sport 1 can get out of it. 1 object, however, to be a target for the frenzied hunter more bent on filling his larder with venison than fie is on the sport of hunting. A look at the beauti ful denizens of the forest is satisfaction enough for me. I admit of course that I am not endowed with the same keen insight into the mystery of hunting in Northern Wisconsin t hat many others are, having only lived here some thirty live years and seer, the game slaughtered by sportsmen in season and out of sea son, seen the game depleted yearly un til now it is only a question of a very few years when the deer will be extinct if the present annual slaughter is let go on. In my* humble opinion if the game laws were amended so that only bucks could be killtd and only one buck to each hunter, die deer would be pre served, and if the long-range gun could be suppressed, we would all enjoy a safe and sane hunting season. C N. Johnson Merrill, Wis , Jan 7th, 1909 HE SWORE. A VVausau woman, wife of a well known attorney, recently lost the fol lowing note which had been directed to her by her husband. A friend found it and has since been exhibiting it as a curiosity. Tbe attorney, who has an office not over seven blocks from the Beilis House corner, one afternoon recently found he could not be home for supper. The stenographer had gone home and so be sat down to the typewriter himself and succeeded, after half an hout'a work, in evolving the fol lowing note, which he sent to his wife, the same being deliver*d by a boy from behind the sewer.” We have, of course, changed the names, so as not to divulge the parties, “atthe Office 5-30 p. m!

The contents struck young Leturner in the right breast and passing through his luDgs came out under his right shoulder blade. A Wausau man says that he has dis covered oil in Marathon county. It seems that in traveling through the woods he came to what tie supposed was a spring of cool water, but which proved to he oil. (Just where this oil spring was located, the paper does not say. It would be well for some of our oil speculators to look into this ) Christian YouDg got badly hurt at Scholfield’s mill on Wednesday by be ing struck with a stick ot wood which was thrown with great force by a log rolling upon the end of it. His face was horribly cut and bruised. Adolph J.aPier’s barn and contents, in town of Wausau, were burned on Friday. The county board of assessors were published in this issue.

The job of blasting out the channel undertaken by Mr. Andrews proved a great success. Lumber is being run over rapidly and safely today. Jacob Kolter is handing out a very line line of soda and ice cream at the city bakery. The contract of building the bridge across the main river was let to G. G. Green on Thursday for $6,565,00. To be completed so ihst teams can cross by Oct. Ist and fib'y completed by Dec. Ist. The contract for building a bridge across the slough to the Walrod Island was let to W. D. Mcludoe for the sum of $1,400 in village orders. FOUR GOOD RECIPES. The following feur recipes are culled from the Pilot’s vest pocket compen dium of know!* ige. They are simple— any housewife will have no trouble in preparing any of them. We have selected one recipe from each of four different sections of the book, so as to give a wider range than if all were taken from one. Here they are: Bean Soup—One bean, four quarts of water. Add two quantities of salt aud sit up with bean until it dissolves. Heat and serve. If you take in boarders, add more water. Home Made Sausage—Take five pounds of dog meat and pound it with a sledge hammer until it looks like cur rant jelly. Pass it through a clothes ringer four times, and then let the little ones play with it till it is quite tender Cook in oven untii it is brown, and. if you are expecting your husband’s mother for dinner, burn the bottom. Union Salad—When no one is look ing, take a strong, healthy onion and kill it. Drive out the smell with a ham mer. Serve. Cream Cheese—Get a quart of milk and skim it. Take a tub and drop in three Hies. Let the milk stand in the tub until it is tired, and then dig a hole in the back yard, and lay the cheese in the hole, and build a wall around it so it can't escape. Then, in three months’ time, w hen the cheei is grey, wrinkled and infirm, grab it by the back of the neck and eat it quick. NOW WAUSAU IS FAMOUS. Wausau has another claim to fame. It has lately been discovered that Presi dent elect Taft, when a young man, “lieked” Lester A. Rose, a former edi tor of that city. The boat between Taft and Rose took place in Cincinnati in 1879, the occasion being a sensation, al article written by Rose in which the name of Judge Taft, father of “Will” Taft, was unjustly used. It appears from an account of tbe affair, printed in a Cincinnati paper at that time, that “Wilt” Taft, as he was called, looked up the editor, who was something of a bruiser himself, and knocked him out in one round. Editor Rose, when editing the VVau sau paper, was a frequent Stevens Point visitor and it was be who steered tbe Wisconsin Press association up into the woods, ranch to their disgast. on one of their annual outings Rose died very suddenly in Milwaukee shortly after wards.—Stevens Point Journal.
