Lamer yesterday. He was bound over for trial in municipal court, bis bail being fixed at SSOO, which he was unable to furnish. Today ends the slaughter of deer and hunters in Wisconsin for tiie year 1009. Limiting hunters to one deer this year resulted in fewer of the animals being killed. The weath er. too,- there lieing an absence of snow - was in the animals* favor. The remains of Albert M. Wagner, father of Mrs. Louis Weichman of this city, were brought here Saturday and buried in Pine Grove cemetery. Mr Wagner died of heart failure Feb. H, 1005, in Gaylord, Minn., and his remains have rested in a cemetery in that city since. The Merrill Star-Advocate tells of a man who chased a skunk into a hot low log and the result was he found six of the animals in there, all of which he killed, and he made good money in selling the pelts. That man could do a good business in this sec tion. occasionally. A. A. Bock, clerk of the court, has prepared the calendar for the next term of circuit court, beginning Dec. 6. There are eight cases on the criminal calendar of which five are appeals from circuit court, one of burglary and two are statutory charges.

Miss Frances Albers gave a whist party on Friday evening in honor of her guest, Miss Tucker. The prizes for best scores were won by Miss Mildred Moore and Merritt Jones. Refreshments were served and a very delightful evening enjoyed by all who participated. The Marathon County Bar associa tion’s members will entertain them sekes Fri Jay evening. Following a banquet at the Beilis hotel matters of interest to the profession will be talked over. There is no set program and nothing of a formal nature has been planned. Work of putting the Rib Falls tele phone exchange into service has been delayed owing to the non-arrival of switchboard apparatus. The business "will start out on a small scale at first, but it is predicted that by next spring there will be applications for a great many ’phones. Ties, did you say? Well you ought to see the line in stock at Seim Bros.’ at present. Nothing like it ever seen in this big village. Machinery for the new paper mills plant is beginning to arrive. From now on it is expected that shipments will be received weekly until all has arrived. It will require a great many men and a number of derricks to move and set up the large paper mak ing machines. The first installment to arrive is machinery for the develop ment of electricity. Mrs. Reid Goodrich gave a bridge whist party on Saturday afternoon in honor of Mrs. Win. Goodrich of La Crosse, and Mrs. Bert Good rich, of Phoenix, Arizona. The home was tastily decorated with chrys anthemums. Refreshments were served during the afternoon. The prize for the highest score was aw arded Mrs. John M. Kuebler. Judge A. H. Reid departed .tester day for Rhinelander to hold court. He will try the Oneida county graft cases, the indictments for which were issued after a grand jury heard testi mony offered last summer. There are ten cases on the calendar and fifteen persons are named as defend ants, all or nearly all being former officers in the town of Minocqua. They are charged with malfeasance of office. Chief of Police Thomas Malone is in receipt of a letter from W. F. Buck, coroner of Saw yer county, ask ing for information in regard to one, Oskar Raiski, a Finn. The man was killed at Hayward, Nov. 2t. The let ter gives the information that Raiski had a friend who says that the dead man came to that village from Wau sau. Nothing is known of the man here and it is quite likely that if lie came from here at all he was only a transient resident. Friends have just been apprised of the marriage of Chas. Gilham and Miss Alta Ruggies, w hich took place nearly a year ago. The first men tioned is in the employ of his father in the store of the Wm. Gilham Meat and Grocery Cos. His bride is and has been for some time in the office of the store. They were married in Chicago Jan. 21, 1909. and have suc ceeded in keeping the matter a secret until a few days ago. Last Saturday will go down in history as the warmest day for the 27th of November in thirty years. The ‘ thermometer ranged around fifty-five above zero all day. which registration on a Fahrenheit thermom eter is known as temperate heat. Had the sun been shining the quick silver would have climbed still high er. In Chicago, so the newspapers say, men were seen lounging about on tire grass in Lincoln park, as they do in midsummer. Here n Wausau crick ets were heard chirping, grasshoppers rubbed their hind legs together and the caterpillar, butterfly and iioney bee were busy. All that was re quired to make you think summer had returned was green foliage. MEETS ON MONDAY. The Ladies’ Literary club will meet on Mondav afternoon, l>ec. 9th, in the high lecture room. On that oc casion Prof. C. C. Parlin will give a lecture on “Raphael and his Contem poraries.” Each club member is per mitted to invite a guest. MARKET DAYS. The Pilot was called up by tele phone yesterday, by a party residing in a town in tiie county, asking when the next market day would be held. The market days are tiie second and fourth Mondays of each month. There fore the days for next month are the 14th and 2Sth days of Dec. EARLY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING. Now is the time to begin to do the Christmas shopping. It is an injustice all around to postpone this important annual function until the last hours before the Christmas day dawns. The buyers can not do themselves justice. They must compete with a host of other belated purchasers, all just as impatient and just as importu nate. They are jostled about, receive" scant courtesy, and, more often than not, they do not get what they want. They get tired, cross, out of sorts w ith their purchases, themselves and every body else, and if there was in them anything of the joyous Christmas spirit it is driven far lienee by the time the day of all days dawns. Belated Christmas shopping is an injustice vo merchants, clerks and ales people, they cannot do justice to their customers nor show their stock of goods to advantage when their places of business are stuffed to suffo cation in the last of the holidays and everybody wants to grab the same thing and be waited upon at the same time. Early Christmas shopping saves money, time, patience, and result* in a better selection of gifts. It is a boon to the patient and tired clerks and is a blessing all around. Begin your Christmasshopping early. —Oshkosh Northwestern. RECEIVER APPOINTED. Application was made in circuit court yesterday for the appointment of a receiver for the Marinette, Toma hawk & Western railroad. This road was formerly known as the Bradley road. It was started by the late Win. Bradley and completed between the station on the Soo line, which bore his name and the city of Tomahawk. After Mr. Bradley's death die rail road fell into other hands and a pro motion scheme was started to extend the road across the state with Mari nette as the eastern terminal. The road was extended westward southeastward a total of forty-four miles being built. Having no large cities on its line to draw from the road lias never been a \er' r paying proposition. Had it not been for difficulties which stopped building operations, there is no doubt but w hat the road would have been extended into a rich timber belt and the city of Antigo would have been given another outlet. It is possible that after tlie road’s financial difficul ties have been straightened out, other hands will carry the work farther. Burr W. Jones of Madison and Smart , VanDoren & Curtis of Merrill, ap peared as attorneys in the case, one for the creditors, the other for the defendant road. After listening to the petition and the statements of each side of the case, tlie motion was granted and J tuige Reid appointed C. H. Grundy of Tomahawk as receiver, he to furnish a bond of SIOO,OOO for the faithful performance of his duty. CARROLL CHAMPIONS. Before the largest crowd that ever witnessed a lotal gridiron battle the Carroll college football team earned a clear title to the state championship of secondary colleges by defeating Northwestern of Watertown in the Thanksgiving day game at Frame field, by a score of 14 to 0. Carroll had never previously defeated the Lutherans, which made the victory especially sweet. Northwestern a large crowd of rooters who were well organized and did some good work for their team. The industrial school band occupied seats in tlie Carroll side of the grandstand and enlivened matters. Carroll is the only undefeated college team in the state. PURCHASED AN AUTO. Dr. L. E. Spencer is the latest to pur chase an automobile. The machine is a four seated Buick and was re ceived today. I)r. Spencer is -tearing down the large barn on lots back of his residence and we understand will build a garage next season. A SURPRISE. Last evening tiie relatives of Anson H. Clark gave him a surprise at his home on Franklin street, the occasion was Mr. Clark’s birthday. They en joyed a supper at six o’clock and the evening was spent in a general good time. It was a very enjoyable gath ering. SUPPER AND SALE. The annual sale and supper by the ladies of the Presbyterian society is being held this afternoon and evening. The menu for the supper is as follows: Oyster Stew Crackers and Celery Cold Roast Pork Escal loped Potatoes Rolls Jelly Pickles Coffee lee Cream and Cake. NEW PAPER. There is some talk of starting a democratic daily paper in the city. How much truth there is in the rumor, the Pilot is unable to learn. We do know, however, that there are a few former leaders in the party wlk> have their names on the list of stockholders and who are very much in earnest no doubt in having such a paper started and firmly established. Perhaps a daily run on the lines marked out by t hem would succeed, for Wausau is certainly in need of an up-to-date daily -broad-guaged, newsy and w hich knows a real live Item from a real dead one. WE APOLOGIZE. In the issue of the Pilot of Nov. 16th was recorded the fact that a voung couple were to lie married in Pike Lake and that a license had been issued by the county clerk for that purpose. The young lady’s name was an unpronouneable one and an allu sion was made to it in a joking way. not thinking how it would sound to others. It ha- since come to our knowledge that a number thought the attempt on our part to lie funny, was to say the least In very tad taste. Now. that our attention has been called to it and tiie matter viewed in all its phases, tlie Pilot fully agrees with them. The Pilot is not pub lished to cast slurs wpon anv one, es pecially those in private life, and i-> sorry that this should have happened. APPLES 1 APPLES!

Opportunities Found in This State Which Cannot Be Excelled. One of the representatives of this state to the National Farm Land con gress, which was held in Chicago. Nov. 1(5-20 last, was W. li. Mylrea of Wausau. He delivered an address on '■'Home Making Opportunities in Wis consin.” We have a printed copy of the address in pamphlet form before us while we are today at our task of wearing out a lead pencil. There is good stuff in it, but it is too copious to copy in full, so will content our selves by picking out the leading points expressed by the speaker. Wisconsin is a state of diversified industries, as well as diversified farm ing. Because of its diversified indus tries, its many factories scattered throughout the state in small manu facturing cities, there is a home market for a large percentage of the products of the farms. There is an area of about 10,000,000 acres in the northern half of the state that is practically unsettled, ex cept in the immediate vicinity of the towns that are located at short inter vals on various lines of railway. It is this area that the attention of the home-seeking public is invited. Our climate is very similar to that of New England. A misconception prevails regarding it, which should be corrected. The climate of North ern Wisconsin is characterized by its clearness, dryness of atmosphere and freedom from abrupt changes of temperature. The four seasons are well defined. The winters are not colder'than are necessary to preserve the snow and good sleighing, and severe drops in temperature are not frequent. The weather is such that crews work in the woods every day in winter. The snow settles to one fourth its total depth. The springs, summers and autumns are all that sould be desired for human and ani mal comfort and prosperity. The grow ing season may be summed up in the fact that all tender crops like tomatoes, corn and melons mature in Wisconsin. The water is pure and clear and free from alkali. The soil is mainly a clay loam based on a sub soil of clay, intermingled with smaller areas of lighter soil. Both are very productive, and have been enriched by the vegetable accumulation of centuries. It is adapted to the suc cessful growth of all farm crops and to dairying and stock raising. Garden vegetables and fruits have an excellent growth. The drainage, for the most part, is very good. The whole area is well supplied with railroads. There is no difficulty in securing homes within two to eight miles of a flourishing city or village. Most of these cities and villages have water powers which assure their future growth and industrial activity. The city of Wausau is an example of what improved water powers will do. The Wisconsin river falls 30 feet at this point and the power, in addition to lighting the city and operating ten miles of electric railroad, supplies power for many factories. Five miles up the river is a paper mill upon a dam having 10 feet head. This plant consumes 320 cords of pulpvvood in 25 hours. Three miles south of the city limits a dam and paper mill are being built which will cost upwards of $1,125,000. What this plant means to the surrounding country may be judged by the fact that it will require among other things a car load of lime and sulphur each day, as well as 400 cords of pulp wood. About 400 men will be employed. Senator Vilas once said that when the water powers of the Wisconsin river alone are developed there will be a greater population upon the river's length than upon any equal amount of territory in the Northwest. The influence of such industrial activ ity upon social conveniences, agricul tural prosperity and farm, values in their respective districts are too ob vious to need comment. The area mentioned is in one of the best rain belts in America, the rainfall varying little from year to year. The abundant snowfall protects the crops, so that winter-killing is unknown. It is a common remark that the seasons in Northern Wisconsin are too short. Nat ure is wiser than man. It is a matter of common knowledge that as one travels north in summer the hours of day increase. The hours of sunshine art/ considerably greater in Northern Wisconsin than in states from 300 to 400 miles south. The sun rises earlier in the morning and sets later in the evening. Between May 1 and Sept. 1 there are 00 more hours of sunshine in northern Wisconsin than in Chicago in the same length of time. It therefore follows that the nights are short, lengthening the time for plant life to grow. In no part of the temperate zone of this continent was there ever such forest growth in amount or density as in Northern Wisconsin. The soils w hich produced tlvese immense forests and have been continually enriched by the falling leaves and debris are undoubtedly able -to reproduce in crops for the farmer the same riches that they did for the lumbermen. Land is one of the most staple values known to man. There are no factor ies creating acres of land. The num ber of acres to be occupied are the same today as when Columbus first landed. With good lands and equit able government, combined with mod ern inventions, the future is bound to show an increase in population by leaps and bounds as the world has never seen. For the production of clover the undeveloped area is already famous. Peas, which belong to the clover fam ily, are proving a profitable crop in this territory. Peas need plenty of moisture and cool nights, these two requisites favoring this locality. The' yield of small grains is not excelled anywhere. There is no soil in this section w hich is not adapted to some form of farm life. The poorest lands are being reforested. Potatoes are raised yielding from 15u bushels Your Attention This Way, Please, with all the emphasis of which tspe is capable, we want to <li reet your attention (’lirisnias ward.

S> '‘Devrt.sdv Compaq UNDERTAKING A SI*EGIAEII 206-208 Third Street, Wausau upwards. The experience in sugar beet production in America has dem onstrated that the northern areas are best adapted to sugar beet culture. The long days of sunshine in summer and fall in Wisconsin favor the l>eet crop. Tobacco can be grown at im mense profit any-where in Wisconsin. The soil and climate are excellently suited to its production w hile absence of drought and hail storms insure a crop. The raising of dent corn has advanced northward each year until the past season, when (50 bushels per acre was grown within twelve miles of lake Superior. That almost all kinds of merries grow in profusion in every opening in the woods proves that the whole area is adapted to small fruits. About twelve years ago the state of Wisconsin leased 10 acres of land in Marathon county where an experi mental orchard of plums, cherries and all varieties of apples was plant ed. This was the first attempt at fruit raising on a large scale in North ern Wisconsin. Time soon demon strated that some varieties were not adapted to this climate and soil, but that the orchard as a whole is a suc cess is shown by the fact that -the crop this year was sold for $2,800 on the premises. A visiting fruit man from the West said that had the orchard been planted to Patton Green ing apples alone, producing fruit of the quality of which he saw samples, the orchard would be worth SI,BOO per acre in the West. The home seeker wants to know about the probable future value of lands to which his attention is solic ited. He and Wisconsin are on the same footing. He wants a home and the state wants settlers for her un occupied lands. Go carefully over our showing of varied and handsomely paying crops, consider our healthy and invigorating climate, our pure sparkling water, our magnificent market, our excel lent schools, the fact that one can locate near a thriving railroad town, that building material and fuel is cheap—consider these—and if satis fied, you are welcomed to one of America's greatest and most pros perous states. ALWAYS ON OPPOSITE SIDES. Delancey Nicoll and Clarence Shearn Like the Connecticut Farmer and His Wife- When Delancey Ntcoll pushes the bell on the pearl? gates he’ll find Clarence J. Shearn Inside trying to serve an injunction forbidding St. Pe ter to open the portals, says the New York Globe. Mr. Nicoll and Mr. Shearn are, perhaps, the best knock about team in legal vaudeville to-day. They are so consistently engaged on opposing sides that their tour in the stirring melodrama, “The Gould Case; or, Who Kept the Diary,” which should have attracted as much atten tion as an all-star Lambs cast, was dismissed with a mere nod by the public. And yet it was the gentlemen who are playing the legal lead who ought to be under the performing spotlight, while those who had the name parts in that tank show might well be neglected. Mr. Nicoll and Mr. Shearn have fought each other so long that the old story of the Con necticut farmer might well apply. He was riding back from the cemetery with his nephew after burying his wife. “Well, she’s gone,” said the be reaved husband. The nephew assented dutifully. “She kep’ good care of me for 40 year,” said the relict. The nephew said that was so, alas. “And do you know,” said the mourn er, “toward the last I almost got to like her." Soup Without a Spoon. Soup without a spoon seems even harder to negotiate than meat with out a fork, and we can sympathize with the complaint recorded in the diary of Felix Platter, a young Swiss who went to Montpellier in 1552 in order to study medicine. He lodged in the house of his professor, Catelan, one of the greatest doctors of his time, and yet, writes Platter, “we were compelled to eat our stew in the usual French fashion, that is to say, picking the meat out with our fingers, and then drinking the broth. In vain we begged our hostess to let us have spoons, for not a single one was to be found in the house, the only imple ment on the table being a large knife fastened with an iron chain. No one here seems to have ever heard of ■poons, which we at home find so useful.’’ Montaigne was astonished, when he visited Switzerland in 1580, to find that "at all meals they put on the table as many spoons as there are people present.” Effect of White Things. The elevated train was filled with perspiring passengers when a naval officer boarded It. All eyes were cen tered upon him. He was dressed from bead to foot in spotless white. It was as If a breeze blew in over the heated passengers, his excessive neatness gave such an effect of rest and cool ness. **l wish I could be a naval officer,” said one fat woman to another, “so I could have clean white things from top to bottom every morning of th<; world. It's the only way to feel as J you were cool even If you are not. Hard to Connect. “Money's everything, isn't it?” “Pretty near.
