The Wisconsin Commercial Educat ors’ association held its annual conven tion in this city Thursday and Friday and nearly every institution in Wis consin where commercial courses are taught was represented. A number who were expected and who were to take part in the program were unable to be present. Their places were tilled by others and the business of the con vdhtion moved on smoothly. The session of Thursday morning was taken up in the appointment of committees, reading of communica tions, minutes and treasurer’s report. Among the communications read was one from J. P. Simons of Superioi, president of the association, who was unable to attend on account of the death of a relative. In his absence the chair was tilled by E. D. Widmer of this city. ' In the afternoon Supt. S. B. Tobey addressed the assemblage on the topic, “Relation of the Public Schools to Business Colleges.” C. A. Cowee spoke on the subject of “Penmanship.” Follow ing eacli address a disci ssion was opened. At the conclusion of the session all those in attendance went by street car to Rothschilds park where supper was had. Tliis proved to be ne of the be. t features of the convention. The ride gave the visitors an opportunity of seeing some of the surrounding country clad in its dress of green. Also a view of the park, the river, etc. The park management placed tables in the grove adjoining the pavilion and the evening being pleasant the the novelty of an outdoor supper was fully enjoyed. Besides the visitors there were a number of invited tow ns people present. E. D. Widmer pre sided as toastmaster and made an an nouncement stating how it came about that the tables were set under the trees. Some time ago he made ar rangements with a member of the street car company for the use of the pavilion. But another member, not knowing of tliis arrangement, had given W. H. Mylrea the use of it the same evening for a private party. The mistake, judging from the re marks of the visitors, only added to the pleasure of the occasion, for those in attendance perhaps enjoyed their supper more in the open air than had it been given in the pavilion. Cos. Supt. Wenzel Pievernetz was called upon and expressed it as his. opinlun that the public schools and commercial schools should work In harmony for the uplift of the student. Miss Helen Merritield of Wausau, said that the business college should cultivate the moral life of a student as well as his educational life. H. G. Flieth of tliis city, who next responded, spoke on the commercial training of the young. From busi ness experience lie has found that the young man who has first graduated from a high school and later from a business college, is best qualified to grapple with the affairs of an office. J. A. Book of Manitowoc, was pleased he said, in seeing such hearty co-operation between our local college and our business men. W. H. Mylrea was called upon. He pointed out the necessity for good English and good spelling, saying that unless a college student acquired both his work in the business office would not be much of a success. Mr. Widmer closed the impromptu addresses by making a short one him self. in which he said it gave him great pleasure to be mixed up in the company he was then in. in the absence of Mayor Joh.i Lament, who was out of the city, S. B. Tobey made an address of welcome, saying he wished the educators could meet in this city every year. In behalf of the association, Robert Spencer of the Spencerian Business college, Milwaukee, responded. He was pleased, he said, to see such hearty support given our business college by the business men of Wau sau. He found the city a beautiful one and would like to accept the in vitation of Mr. Tobey. S. W. Gilman, a member of the faculty of the University of Wiscon sin, made the main address of the evening. His topic was, “Methods of Preparation for Commercial Activ ity.” He compared the old plan of teaching with modern day methods. The text book plan of the past is not suited to the needs of students and the most successful teacher today is t he one vt ho studies the characteristics of each student and applies his work as best suited o the needs of each individual. He called attention to some of the mistakes being made by some of the large institutions of learn ing mistakes which keep back the advancement of the student. He said that many a student is pushed for ward in his studies by the teacher to the detriment of the student—that a student sltould have time to make progress and not be forced into an upper course when he is not proficient in a lower one. During the time the program was being given the Wausau Business college orchestra rendered a number Of selections. The convention dosed Friday morn ing with a business session. County | Superintendent Wenzel Pi vernetz open ing with an address on "The Advisa bility of an Eighth Grade Graduate Taking a Commercial Course.” He was of the opinion that sucii a student should first take a high school course if able to do so. E. D. Widiuer followed, haying “English" as liis topic. J. L. Sturtevant gave his views on "How business College Men Sinould Advertise.” At this session the committee on resolutions made its report, in a set Wa usa uWk Pilot. of resolutions coveryjg the scope, to some extent, of school work. It was a very successful convention throughout. CITY COUNCIL. A meeting of the city council was held Tuesday evening. A petition to have a sidewalk con structed cm the north side of E. Jack son street to connect two other strips was referred to a committee, as was also a petition to have a sewer con structed on the same street. Certain property owners on Plumer street petitioned for a sewer from the intersection of Canal to Frenzel street, saying that two-thirds of the resi dents throw their dish water and oth<“- err. age into the street. Petitions for arc lights to be placed at the corners of Forest and Sixth Sts. and Harrison Blvd. and Porter St., were referred to committee. The Wausau Canning Cos. and 236 others petitioned the council to build an iron or steel bridge across the Wisconsin river to connect Wausau and Union Aves. It was stated that a protest would be entered if an at tempt is made to build a bridge on the site of the Bridge street bridge. It was reported that $4 per week is insufficient for the living expenses of C. Backhaus, a city charge, and the weekly allowance was raised to $6 per week. The application of F. A. Krueger for a saloon license was rejected. The salary of the assistant city engineer was fixed at $3 per day. A committee reported in favor of remitting the water tax of Mrs. Mary Williams. The matter lias been hanging fire' for two years. The le port of the committee was adopted. It was ordered that a conveyance of title U> land occupied by the Wau sau Iron works be made to that com pany, the company having fulfilled every obligation imposed upon it by the city at the time the city gave it the use of the land. In the matter of the claim of Chas. Bronsou against the city to recover damages for personal injuries sus tained in falling on a sidewalk, the city attorney made a report. He found that the sidewalk was in good condition at the time of the accident and that the city is not dab e. The city attorney also made a report on a tax matter in which Conrad Bopf was interested. It appears that Mr. Bopf hj mistake paid taxes on a lot he did nut own. The one he did own was returned to the county treasurer as delinquent and was sold, the certifi cate being bought by W. R. Chellis. Afterwards the county board ordered that Mr. Chellis’ money be paid back to him and the certificate was can celled. Mr. Manson held that the board had made Mr. Bopf a pres ent of the taxes. It was ordered that a transfer of thirty feet of land be made to the city from Mrs.' Malena Trudeau, in consideration of the payment of SIOO and other considerations. The strip is to be used for highway purposes and is to be named LeMessurier street. It was at one time owned by John LeMessurier of whom Mrs. Trudeau is the only heir at law'. Saloon licenses w ere granted to Jos. Peterson, 2110 Sixtli St. and Graunke & Schmalze, 1506 Sixtli St. A majority report of the street and bridge committee was read. The committee reported that nothing short of an iron or steel bridge, to cost between $20,000 and $25,000 would do for the city to build in the north ern section of the city. Also that the site to be selected be that con necting Wausau and Union Aves. as most people living in that section *vho use the bridge live north and west of that site. Another reason advanced for the selection of that site is that most farmers living in the towns of Maine and Berlin cross the river over the falls bridge, because of the sawdust fill and railroad tracks at the ends of the old bridge, and that if the structure is placed 1,200 feet north it will result in relieving much of the congestion on the falls bridge. There is 1,000 feet of sawdust fill at the west approach of the old bridge. This report was signed by Richard Hoenisch and Ole N. Smith. Jos. Reiser, the third member of the committee, brought in a minority report in the way of a res* .ution read at a previous meeting. This provided for the re-building of a pile bridge on the Bridge street site. A resolution of Alderman Rifleman providing for advertising for bids, etc., fJr building a bridge on the old site, was also re read. On motion the minority report and Mr. Rifleman’s resolution were adopted. A committee reported in favor of building an engine house on a lot the city owns at the corner of Fifth and Bridge Sts., and to secure an option on lots at the corner of S. Third Ave. and Thomas St. for the location of another engine house. The latter part of the report was adopted and the fore pari re referred to the com mittee. It was voted to transfer SIO,OOO from the city hall to the school fund. A communication was read inviting all city officials to attend the eleventh annual convention of the League of Municipalities which is to be held in Marinette. At an adjourned meeting of the council held Friday evening, Aider man J. H. Reiser presented a resolu tion providing for the transferring of *4,000 from the city hall fund to the general fund, the same to be uf-ed in the construction of the Bridge street bridge. The resolution was carried, against the protest of the mayor, who said that it was his belief that this and other sums which have been borrowed from the city hall fund could not be replaced as soon as some people think, and the continued loans WAIJSAVi, Wls. a TIJESpAY, JULY 13, 1909. may result in a tax roll, later, which will make taxpayers’ eyes bulge with surprise. It is possible, he said, that the board of public works may see fit this fall to let contracts for building the city hall, and the board may find that there is little or no money on hand to commence work with. The committee on sewers reported in favor of constructing sewers on Canal and Plumer streets and the re port was adopted. H. E. Marquardt, comptroller, and B. E, Gowen, city engineer, were chosen to represent the city at the eleventn annual convention of the Wisconsin League of Municipalities, which is to bedield in Marinette, July 21-23. The special committee having the matter in charge of improving Canal street was ordered to make an item ized report of the cost thus far. THE WHITE PLAGUE. Exhibit Comes to Wausau Next Week To Be Here Seven Days. Beginning on Monday of next week the Wisconsin Anti-Tuberculosis as sociation will have an exhibit in this city and every day thereafter for one week this exhibit w ill be free for the public to examine and the lectures to be given each day will prove instruc tive. The exhibit is in charge of W. O. Gloyer and Harvey Dee Brown jpf Mil waukee, who will give lectures them selves and interest local physicians and others in speaking. The lectures will be given every afternoon at four o’clock and evening at eight. Those w'ho have undertaken the work of bringing the exhibit to W aacau will do all they can to make it instructive, and all that remains to make it a success is a large attendance, and this there should be, for the problem of fighting tuberculosis is a grave one in which every human being should be interested. As previously stated in these col umns, charts show ing tables of mor tality diseased organs preserved in alcohol and the paraphernalia for fighting the disease w ill be exhibited. In the lectures stress will be laid on the prevention of the spread of the disease, particula Ty in taking care oi and disposing of the sputum of con sumtives. It has been proven that the distribution of sputum is one of the greatest agencies in spreading this disease, for when a diseased per son expectorates on a floor and the sputum dries, -is pulverized and thousands of particles, each contain ing germs, float through the air and the germs are transmitted to healthy people. Too much interest cannot be aroused in the subject as tuberculosis is one of the most insiduous and uangerous of diseases. It claims over 200,000 people in the United States every year and it is estimated that there are at least 600,000 cases in the coun try today. Of the 80,000,000 people in this country ten per cent, or 8,000,000 are doomed to die of this disease un less we do something to prevent it. Last year 2,500 of the 2,500,000 peo pie in Wisconsin died of the white plague. In New York City $23,000,0 .>0 is spent annually on account of deaths due to this disease, and yet less than two per cent, of that amount is ex pended for the prevention of the dis ease. The direct losses from tuber culosis in the country in a single year amount $1,000,000,000 and the loss in Wisconsin alone amounts to $17,500,000. Consumption is a curable disease and at some sanitariums 75 per cent, of the patients have been restored to health. Methods of prevention and cure enter largely into the exhibit which will he shown in this city. The ex hibit w ill show in graphic and strik ing form the great losses caused by the disease and .lie most effective and economical preventative measures. The exhibit is intended for everyone, but primarily for those who cannot afford to send their afflicted k ved ones to sanitariums. The state has appropriated a large sum of money to be used for the benefit of those suffer ing from tuberculosis and everything will he fully explained. No admission fee is charged and no collection is taken. The expense is paid from the fund derived from the sale of Red Cross stamps at Christmas time. GONE WEST. Mrs. Agnes B. Murray and daugh ter, Miss Margaret, departed this morning for a trip in the West. They will go to St. Paul where Mrs. Murray will be met by her sister, Dr. Anne Burnet, of Mt.

Co.’s plant at Grand Rapids, which was blown for twenty years, at 5:30 a. m., has been silenced on account of that annoyance to guests at hotels and strangers within the confines of the city. Wausau has had to do some tiling along the lines of abating noises that were annoying First the grunt ing%i hogs was an annoyance on our streets; then cows, with bells on, troubled our people, so all cows were kept off the streets; the county clock which tolled off every half hour, pretty nearly drove strangers to strong drink—they stayed upall night for fear of being awakened by the “durned thing.” Then there were several factory whistles, on a sliding scale, which had to be attended to. Down in oae of the towns in the southern part of the state it has been made a misdemeanor after 10 p. m. to sing, or play on a musical instrument so as to disturb the neighbors. It will be so after a while that a person can’t even let out a good healthy snore without giving offense, and be liable to arrest. OPENING OF ELEVENTH YEAR. Wausau, Wis., July 1, 1909. The board of the Marathon County Training School for Teachers take pleasure in announcing the opening of the eleventh year on Tuesday, Sep tember 7, 1909. The inducements for taking the course of study offered by the school are stronger than ever; the uniform course of study prepared by the state satisfies school boards that our gradu ates are well equipped, and many this year have secured very desirable posi tions; more satisfactory credits are given by the normal schools, indeed they are seeking for our students; changes are being made by the legis lature which w ill make our certificate still more valuable; in brief, the trail ing school offers you the very best equipment for your work. We especially desire to emphasize the two years’ course. The extended time makes possible more thorough mastery of subjects, and gives oppor tunity for greater social and intellec tual developement. The certificate is sued to graduate* of T his course will have an added value to those looking for -teachers. All text books are furnished free, and there is no tuition.
