FURNISHED MUCH INSTRUCTION.
Facuity of the College of Agriculture Give Inter
esting Lectures.
The farmers’ course, given under the
auspices of the Marathon County School
of Agriculture and Domestic Economy
and the College of Agricnltnre of the
University of Wisconsin in the court
house Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs
day, was not as well attended as it
should have been. Notwithstanding
the liberal amount of advertising done
by G. A. Crosthwait, principal of the
school, those farmers who should have
been interested were few in number.
It was one of the best educational meet
ings which our farmers coaid have at
tended. If the attendance had been
what it should, it would have assured a
similar meeting next year. Under the
circumstances similar meetings will be
held in some other county than Mara
thon next year.
Dr. A. S. Alexander of Madison, on
the morning of Wednesday, handled
the topic, “The Horse’s Foot and its
Humane Treatment.” He showed how
the average horse shoer docs his busi
ness, caring little for results. He stated
that shoeing of a horse was a very
important factor in its u i.ity. That
horses should be shod properly is one
of the requisites which a farmer should
see to. Prof. D. H. Otis of Madison,
gave a talk on “Makiog the Most of
Our Common Cows by Good Feed and
Care.” This was a very interesting
lecture. In illustration of his subject
he used photographs showing scrub
cows as they were in the care of careless
farmers aud how they appeared after
ward in the hands of experienced peo
ple. By proper feeding, he claimed,
and showed by illustrations, the worth
of a scrub cow could be greatly im
proved .
“The Conservation of Good Blood in
our Live Stock” was handled by Prof.
G. C. Humphrey of Madison. His mis
siori was, he said, to educate the farm
ers to raise better herds. By selecting
the best cow in a farmer’s herd and
breeding her with pure bred stock and
inter breeding with the progeny, in the
meantime killing off or getting rid of
the scrubs, will result in the betterment
of a herd. This was advocated for the
farmer of little means, who has not
the money to inv9„ in pure blood
stock.
Prof. E. J. Delwiche of Madison, spo’-.c
on “Corn Growing in Northern Wis
consin.” His advice was that, to se
cure best results, instead of changing
seed, the best seed each year should be
selected. In this way, he claimed, a
uniform grade of corn can be grown
He mentioned different systems of
planting corn and advised that every
farmer plant a certain portion of his
land in corn each year. Corn, he said,
rids the land of weeds and for this rea
son alone it should be planted.
“The Farm Separator” was the topic
of Prof. E. H. Farrington of Madison.
He explained the different methods
used in extracting the cream from the
milk, and showed which method was
the best.
Prof. C. A. Ocock of Madison, spoke
on “Principles of Silo Construction."
The stone silo, he said, was vsed as far
back as the Egyptian era. He Bxplained
the different methods of silo construc
tion and told which materials have giv
en the best satisfaction.
Prof. C. P. Norgord took the place of
Prof. R. A. Moore, who was unable to
be present, and he spoke on “Corn Im
provement as Adapted to Wisconsin
Conditions.” This was a most interest
ing lecture for the corn grower. He
advocated the setting aside of a certain
portion of ground for the growing of
corn, to be used the next year as seed.
This corn should be carefully watched,
only the best plants preserved and only
the best ears selected. To secure best
rcsnlts a seed should be taken from
each ear, before the planting season,
soaked in water and covered with saw
dust, each seed being numbered to
correspond with the cob it was taken
from. By observing the germination
one can easily tell which cobs to select
as seed.
“Preventable Sickness” was treated
by i)r. Margaret Trevitt. Her plea was
plenty of fresh air in the treatment of
cases. Ir. substantiation of her plea
she cited the fact that some years ago
when sick soldiers had been placed in
tents, on account of the overcrowded
condition of the New York City Mili
tary hospital, they recovered far quick
er than those indoors.
With the aid of the ltmgs of diseased
cattle which were shipped here, H. L.
Russell, dean of the College of Agricul
ture, gave a most interesting lecture on
LUMBER RATES LOWERED
Charges From Wisconsin Poinis to
Chicago Will Be Less by Rul
ing of the Commission.
Rates to Chicago on lumber from
points in Wisconsin are to be lowered
under a decision rendered by the Inter
state Commerce Commission on Satur
day. The complaiut was brought by G.
W. Jones Lumber company against the
Chicago & North-Western Railway
company.
Lumber producing points on that rail
road iu northern and northwestern Wis
consin have under its schedules been
classified in groups and the same car
load rates on lumber as prevail from all
points in a particular group to Chicago
and points in Illinois and lowa.
Wabeno, Wis , was placed in the
Rhinelander group, from which the
rates to points in Illinois and lowa are
from t cent to 1 cent higher than the
rates from the Wausau group, which
adjoins the Rhinelander group on the
southwest, as the commission finds that
by reason of its geographical location
and distance of Wabeno by rail from
Chicagb and other points in Illinois and
lowa, it is entitled to the same rates as
points in the Wausau group.

the subject of tuberculosis. The only
reliable *test is the tuberculin, which
demonstrates whether or not an animal
has the disease. As soon as one dis
eased animal is discovered it should be
separated from tne herd. By the in
troduction of one diseased animal a
whole herd may become diseased. The
tuberculin test was explained. The
danger resulting from the nse of milk
from cows having tuberculosis was fully
explained. The danger means much to
the growing generation, he said, as
cows* milk is given largely to children.
By the use of such milk children may
contract the germs of tuberculosis.
Meat of such animals should not be
eaten and one would not knowingly
feed such meat to his family. Tubercu
losis is spread among herds largely, he
said, through creameries and cheese
factories. In taking home infected
skim milk and whey, and feeding it to
calves, the disease is distributed through
young herds.
As an illustration of the value of the
tuberculin test the dean related an in
cident relative to the man who owned
the herd from which the diseased cows
were taken for demonstration in Wau
sau. Six years ago, be said, a boy from
the College of Agriculture entered the
employ of this man and offered to apply
the test to the herd. The owner al
lowed him to do so and he found twelve
animals diseased. The man laughed at
the boy and his test. Last winter when
the city of Chicago refused to buy Wis
consin milk, unless guaranteed to be
free from tuberculosis germs, this man
was forced to have his herd tegted, that
he might continue selling milk in Chi
cago. The second test showed that a
total of tifty-seven animals in the herd
were affected after the elapse of six
years. They were condemned and are,
or will be, all killed. Had the man not
looked upon the boy’s test as something
unworthy of notice, he* might have
saved himself a severe financial loss.
In exhibiting the lungs, liver, heart,
intestines, etc., of one of the diseased
animals shipped here purposely for the
demonstration the dean said that in all
his experience he has seen but two
other animals as badly affected. One
peculiar feature, which cannot be ex
plained„ is that bacilli enter the
intestines without apparently perfor
ating them. By so doing the disease is
carried to every part of the animal’s
body.
He fully explained the manner of test
ing cattle and advised farmers to apply
to G. A Crosthwait, of the county
school tor blanks, which, when tilled
out and mailed to the experiment sta
tion in Madison, will bring to the farm
er a quantity of tuberculin for a test.
As thi9 northern section is destined to
soon lead Southern Wisconsinin dairy
ing and cattle raising, he said, new is
the time to stamp out tuberculosis be
fore it gets a foothold. We wish we
had more space to devote to the dean’s
lecture, for it was without doubt the
most interesting and on the most vital
subject of the course.
Prof E H. Farrington spoke Thurs
day evening on “Dairying in Europe.”
He visited the continent a few years
ago, going first to Holland, then to
Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and
England, in the order named. In each
country he investigated dairying condi
tions. In some he found commendable
features; in others, the reverse. In
Denmark, he said, sanitary conditions
in dairying are better than in any other
country. Farmers’ institutes in Ger
many are provided with plenty to eat
and drink.
Addresses were made on maty minor
topics and some local men spoke. One
interesting feature was the talks given
by boys of the agricultural school on
conditions which enter into farming
and dairying. The boys had prepared
their papers with great care and they
illustrated the value of the training af
forded by this excellent school.
Miss Emma Conley, teacher of domes
tic science in the county school, with
two assistants, gave illustrations in
cooking and a number of appetizing
dishes were prepared. Miss Conley il
lustrated the use of the tireless cooker.
The sessions were enlivened by music,
readings and singing.
This course offered a fund of infor
mation to the farmer, which he could
get in no other way than by long study,
and it was a blot on the name of our
farmers that more were not in attend
ance. It cost them nothing but their
time, and those in attendance learned
many things which will be of great
value to them in the y?ars to come.
PREPARE TO CLEAN UP.
Wausau should have a general clean
ing up time this spring, it will be for
the good of the city and its people in
more ways than one. It will conduce
much to the good health of every in
dividual in the city. If will help to
prevent the spread of disease and a
tidy, clean city has everything to do in
creating the right impression on strang
ers who happen to come within oar
gates. Now is the time to get ready;
talk it over and prepare for the on
slaught. Perhaps some way can be de
vised whereby we may have cleaning
up days and the city tiear a part of the
expense. This has been tried in former
years but just because the debris was
carted away free by the city, there were
those who took advantage of the op
portunity to hav6 the accumulations of
years hauled away and the cost to the
city was enormous; perhaps, as an in
centive, the city might help along by
chargtcg a low rate for hauling to the
dumping grounds. Some place in the
central part of the city might want
filling up. This would make a short
haul. Aayway, let us arrange for a
general cleaning up and now is the
time tc prepare.

WAIISAt), WIS., TVIESCAY, MARCH 9, 1909.
MARCH MIRRpR.
We have reached the third month in
the calendar of 1909, known as March.
This month is not noted for anything
especially, except tbit the 17th day of
Ireland and the beginning of spring
fall in this portion of the cycle. March
usually comes in like a lion aud goes
out like a hyena. The moon was full
on the 6th—so were some human apetr.
On
dwellers of the green sod, and some
from some other countries, will respect
the memory of the patron saint by
the wearing of the green.
Spring will begin on the 21st and end
about July Ist in this latitude. Sleigh
ing will be rather poor on the latter
date.
It was in the month of March that
Julio*) Caesar’s blood was let out of his
veins. The Black Hand society sent<
a notice to bring a sack of money and
deposit it on the wood yard near Wall
street, Rome. When be and Brutus,
the latter a Blackhander, met, Brutus
enquired, “Did you bringa da mun!”
Caesar replied, “1 did not fatch eet,”
whereat the society fell 'upon hiir wi Ji
stilettoes and cut him ia zwei, to nse a
German word. Alas for one of the
mightiest figures in history, and twice
alas for the fact that ships have since
been bringing to this country as ballast
members of that society to “Sella de
banan.”
March, 1908, will go down in history
as the month in which the “big stick’s”
rule ended in Washington, and when
Wisconsin elected an octogenarian as
one of its representatives in the senate.
The corpulent Taft and pink-whiskered
“Sunny Jim” have taken their >eats,
and soon T. R. starts for Africa to stir
up the lions, whereat the stork is shed
ding tears and the nature fakers and
members of the Annanias club are
crawling out from under the bed.
It is said that children born in March
will slave to gather wealth, and later
spend all they have hoarded in getting
back their health.
You can go down to the Big Bull falls
bridge the latter part of the month and
watch the ice go out —if you place no
value on your time. About March 15th
the spring prevaricator will make
affidavit to the statement that be saw a
robin roosting in the court house yard.
It’s strange that at this period of the
year, when gazing on mating sparrows’
these prevaricators are stricken with
color blindness.
Rind friend, are you a subscriber to
the Pilot? If you are not there is no
better month in the year to begin a sub
scription than March. Do you need
stationery? The stationery printed in
our office is giving the best satisfaction.
Last week we printed 1,000 statements
for a Wausau business man, and by
their aid ho collected a small fortune.
Two months ago a man had some
note neads and envelopes printed in
this office to use when writing to his
sweetheart. He’s married now.
We print the bulk of the bank checks
used in the city. One young man, some
time ago, forged one of them. He’s in
the penitentiary.
A young man recently visited our
office and stole some of our paper to
make cigarettes with. He’s dead.
A short time ago an elderly maiden
bought some of our note paper to curl
her hair on. Now she’s got a beau.
(Ladies, we have only a few packages
of this paper in stock. Come early
while the supply lasts )
By using our stationery a peison can
collect old accounts, tell fortunes,
change the weather, be successful in
business, triumph over enemies or be
elected to congress. (Uncle IWis one of
our patrons ) Give us a call.
B. B. NOTES.
President W. R. Bryan of the local
base ball club has been negotiating for
a manager. The man he has in view is
Lew Drill of St. Paul. Mr. Drill has
been highly recommended. He has
played in major league company and
for the past two seasons has maraged
the Terre Haute (Ind.) team in the Cen
tral league. Those who have watched
his work say that Mr. Drill is equal to
too best of player managers—knows a
good ball player when he sees one and
in addition is a good" ball player him
self. If he cannot be landed the local
people have some other managers in
view and one will be chosen before
long. The officers and directors are in
no hurry to get a manager, for they
feel that time should be taken to choose
a good man. A good manager is half
of the team and we had some costly ex
perience the first two years of league
ball.
There appears to be a raft of players
running around the country looking
for jobs, and it is thought there will be
no trouble in signing up a good team
in a hurry. About ten weeks remain
before the opening of the season.
League President John Elliott has ap
plications from about seventy-five men
for positions as umpires in the new
league. From this bunch he ought to
be able to select some satisfactory men.
The schedule is in the hands of ex
perts, and, it is expected, will be sub
mitted to the clubs for approval in a
short time.

An Ideal Cousrh Medicine
“As an ideal cough medicine I regard
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy in a class
by itself ,” says Dr. R A. Wiltshire, of
Gwynneville, Ind. “I take great pleas
ure in testifying to the results of Cham
berlain’s Cough Medicine. In fact, I
know oi no other preparation that meets
so fully the expectations of the most ex
acting hi cases of croup and colds of
children. As it contains no opium,
chloroform or morphine it certainly
makes a most safe, pleasant and effica
cious remedy for the ills it is intended.”

It is the opiniomthat “Walrod Island”
will some day be an important part of
the town, and this is strengthened by
the improvements going on there.
There are now on the island, two stores,

Mr. Edward Kretlow, Sr., of Milwau

We have some genuine ladies in Wau
sau who are above the novel-reading,
sentimental class, who possess good
common sense, are not afraid of soiling
their delicate fingers by using the hoe,
rake or even the ax, if need be, to ac
complish what they undertake, regard
less of what Mrs. So-and-So may say or
think about them. These ladies assist
in cultivating their gardens, cleaning
yards and a few have beeu public spir
iteth enough to clean up the streets in
front of their residences. But a few
days since, we ware informed, some of
these ladies labored all one afternoon
in piling together and burning stumps,
roots, etc., and afterwards with a rope,
drawing the remnants together and
burning them also, not accomplishing
the whole until eleven o’clock at night.
The streets in that locality, we venture
to say, look neat and tidy and the ladies
smiling and- happy. Our ladies will
make Wausau the handsomest, pleas
antest and happiest town in America.
(Such were the type of our pioneer
women and Wausau owes much to
them.)
IS ACCIDENTALLY SHOT.
Mr. W. Bartlett, f Wausau, a scaler
employed by the Johnson Creek Lum
ber Cos., was brought to this city
Wednesday afternoon to have a bullet
wound in his right cheek dressed. It
appears that a party where gathered in
the lumber company’s office were they
were using a 22 caliber rifle shooting at
a mark for passtime. Bartlett, who
was one of the party, stepped outside of
the office for a moment, when the gun
was discharged by Chester Winslow.
The bullet passed through both walls of
the building; Bartlett, who was stand
ing just outside receiving the ball in
the right cheek. It enter and the cheek
about two inches below the eye, midway
between the nose and the base of the
ear, glanced from the cheek bone and
entered the point of the nose passing
through both Dostrils. His wounds
were dressed by Dr. Daniels, and while
it is not of a very serious nature, it is
very painful and will lay him up for
some time. —Mosinee Times.
BOUGHT SILO.
A. J. Plowman of the town of Elder
on, was in the city last week attending
the farmers’ course, given by the Col
lege of Agriculture. He listened to a
discourse on “Principles of Silo Con
struction,” given by Prof. C. A. Ocock
of the above named college, aDd de
cided that he needed a siio. Before
leaving the city he contracted with the
Concrete Block and Supply Cos. of this
city, to furnish him with the blocks for
a silo 16 feet in diameter and 30 feet
high. This he will fill in the fall, to
feed his herd of Guernsey cattle, for
Mr. Plowman is one of the most pro
gressive farmers in the county and
whenever he sees an opportunity of
bettering methods in working his farm
he is not slow in making & change.

BOUGHT THE HARDELL FARM.
jshn Boss, who for fifteen years has
been engaged in the blacksmithing busi
ness in Rhinelander has purchased from
tbc Herman liardeil estate the Hardell
farm of about 120 acres located partly
in the town of Maine and partly in the
Sixth ward. He intends to bring his
family here and locate on the farm.
He will not only raise crops, but will
devote much of his time to cattle rais
ing, and has ordered a car load of fine
stock as a beginning. The farm is one
of the best adjacent to the city, and as
Mr. Boss bears the reputation of being
a man of energy he ought to succeed.
Mr. Hardell died a few months ago.
He was one of thecoußty’s first settlers.
PAY BY CHECK.
The great advantage of paying bills
by check is sometimes overlooked by
even a cAreful man or a thrifty house
wife. If you pay by check you do not
need to carry sums of money with you,
thereby taking the chance of loss or
error in making change, you always
have an indisputable receipt for bills
paid and therefore the National Ger
man American bank, desiring to co
operate with every family in Wausau,
urges the small depositor to open a
check account wth it.
Give year wife a tlieck took as well
