The following is the report of the directors for the business transacted the past year, viz: To the Stockholders of the Wausau Tele phone C'y.npuny: Gentlemen:— ln the report sub mitted a ytjfcr ago, we suggested some amendments to our articles of incor Artistic Workmanship It affords me much pleasure to present to my patrons a small selection from the style novelties for spring 1910. Many more may be inspected at my establishment. My garments are characterized by individuality, by which is meant that I study the individual requirements of each customer and design costumes in which tiie styles and material and color combinations are in harmony witli the figure of each. Suggestions from patrons are always duly considered and personal wishes as to detail of work are carried out whenever practicable. This gives patrons the satisfaction of possessing thoroughly up-to-date garments which express more or less of their own individuality and taste. All work is executed on the premises by men tailors under my personal supervision, thus assuring artistic and superior workmanship. I have successfully solved the difficult problem of producing tiie very highest grade of work at min imum cost and give my patrons tiie benefits of my economy. This explains why my prices are so. moderate and why you receive better value at my establishment than elsewhere. Your trial order is respectfully solicited. I invite you to call whether you place an order or not. Fair prices—best work—fine ma terial—correct style—perfect fit; you can ask no more and I give you no less.

Stewart The World’s Famous Natural Doctor To tiie Public: —Words fail to express my gratitude to Dr. J. N. Stewart, the magnetic healer, who lias fully restored my sight, hav ing iH'en suddenly stricken blind. I was almost wild with grief at being blind. 1 did not know what to do and no hope held out of ever seeing again until 1 came to I>r. Stewart? who gave me encouragement from the tirst. He saw me: his words I will never forget as he said “Yes, I can cure you.’’ It still rings in my ears. Oh, what joy came over me. 1 can never for* t. After taking treatments two weeks, I can go home today as well as ever, the most happy woman in Wisconsin. I do cheerfully recommend him to any one, no matter what their trouble may be; and any one who has trouble in any form w ith their eves. 1 believe he can cure them. Many thanks to Dr. Stewart for w hat he has done for me. Very truly yours, Mrs. ’Wilijam Kerns. Cazenovia, Wis. State of Wisconsin, Richland County—ss. Frony Kerns, being t.rst duly sworn, on oath says that she is a resident of the town of Westford, in said county, and that in the spring of 1909 she was totally blind, caused by paralysis of the optic nerves: that she took treatmentsof Dr. J. N. Stewart'and was thereby completely cured of her blindness: that the letter she formerly wrote Doctor Stewart, of which a copy is hereto attached, is true in every respect. Proxy Kerns. Subscribed and sworn to before me this sth dav of \ugust, 1909. P L. Lincoln, Notary Public, Wis. Through the entreaties of friends, Doctor Stewart has consented to come to Wausau and lias secured rooms at the Maples. Fourth St., and McClellan St., one block from post office. Dr. Stewart is the only man in the world today who lias the repu tation of curing the blind with a natural treatment without medicine or instruments. Just think for a moment what that means to the blind. Sight fully restored without any risk, without any pain, w ithout any possible chance of being injurai in any way. Any weakness of the eye or any disease of the eye treated successfully: just think w hat that means to those afflicted with their eyes; being fully restored so that they will not need to wear glasses. Paralysis or Atrophy of the optic nerves that are incurable to the best medical doctors in the world, have been fully restored by Idm to perfect sight and yield as if bv magic, by his wonderful treatment. Dr. Stewart lias treated dis ease since lie was seven years old in all parts of the world and lias cured thousands who have been called incurable by the best doctors. Don’t fail to see him no matter how many have told you you could not get better. This may be just the method of treatment you need to bring you into perfect' health. Consultation is free and if found incurable, you w ill lie told so honestly and vour case will not be taken under any consideration if found incurable. All female weaknesses successfully treated without medicine or operation and restored to perfect health no matter how bad they may be. Read what others say about this wonderful man. You sufferer, will have the same to say if you place your case in his care. Satisfac tion guaranteed. Mrs. Stewart will be in attendance to wait on ladies. Remember the date, on and after Tuesday. Feb. Bth.. at the Maples, corner of Fourtli and McClellan Sts. poration, including an increase of our capital stock. These recommenda tions were acted upon at an adjourned meeting of our annual meeting, and those features of our corporation w hich were distinctive from other public service corporations were amended so that our corporation now stands on practically the same basis with other public service corporations of Wis consin. An amendment was also made increasing our capital stock from $20,000.00 to $80,000.00, $20,000.00 of this increase remained as treasury stock, and the remainder, or $40,000.00, was divided among the stockholders as a stock dividend of 200 per cent. This made $60,000.00 of stock issued to our stockholders, which was a very conservative estimate of tiie net value of the physical properties owned by the company at that time. The amount represented by this stock divi dend had been accumulated by the company by devoting our net earnings to an increase in tiie plant, rather than to dividends, and the arrange ment made was just to tiie stock holders and to the public. Chapter 499 of the laws of Wisconsin for 1907 placed all telephone companies in this state directly under the supervision and regulation of the railroad com mission, and those safeguards which had seemed desirable and necessary for the protection of tiie public at the time our company was organized, and up to the time of tiie passage of this law, no longer existed. Our business for tiie past year has been successful. We have encountered no serious losses, hut we have very greatly improved our plant, and especially by substituting cable for open wire. During tiie year we have expended for new material so used $10,536.71, and for labor, exclusive of superintendent’s salary and of tiie operative expenses, $4,037.50, or in.all $14,574.21. In the opinion of ydur board of directors not more than 10 per cent of this expenditure has been for maintenance and repairs, and tiie remainder, $13,116.79, should be added to the permanent value of our plant. These lmprovemtnts seemed to your 11a usa u MSb Pilot. directors especially desirable in view of the lew price of copper, and would not have been made at this time but for this reason. It has, however, necessitated anew increase in our bills payable over a year ago of about $4,600.00, and also, because of this fact, we deemed it inadvisable to make a larger dividend to our stockholders than 5 per cent at this time. Our system is now in first class condition, and unless it may be for extensions outside of the city limits, we are not likely to require any large amount of cable for the next few years. Your directors have deemed it im portant that tiie company should ob tain land upon which to erect a per manent office building. We have been dependent entirely upon rented quar ters, and as our business is increasing it is certain that before many years we shall have to have a permanent home. The cost of moving will of necessity be large, and would be greatly increased unless we cold find quarters that would enable us to make the transfer without changing our general distributing center, which is on Fourth street immediately east of our present office. Opportunity came for acquiring the property of William Wilson, including two full lots, with three good houses upon the same, north of and adjacent to tiie post office site, for $11,000.00, which we deemed a reasonable price, and we therefore purchased this property on terms which enabled us to carry' the entire purchase price at 6 per cent interest. The rent of tiie buildings is about equal to the taxes and interest upon the property. We have now 1,064 telephones, all told, w hich include 49 old style ’phones used in booths and answering ’phones only, " leaving 1015 automatic ’phones in service, upon which our regular monthly earnings are $1,976.75. We present with this an itemized statement of the receipts and dis bursements of tiie company for the year ending December 31st, 1909. Ex clusive of tiie Wilson land purchase, upon which entire purchase money or $11,000.00 is really owing, the com pany’.s obligations were as follows: Due to the bank on cheeks issued to that date $ 163.70 Due to bond holders 16.000.00 Due to bills payable 4.500,00 Total *20.663.70 There was owintr to the com pany on Jan.

A Wausau business man who re cently visited all the small towns in this county, between Eland Jet. and Marshfield, reports that business is booming in each one. From his ob servations lie predicts that business in this city the coming spring w ill be exceptionally good, for there w ill be a large amount of money in circulation as a result of this winter's active business operations in the country towns, lie says lie noticed one thing which opened his eyes: All of the country town merchants are carrying much larger stocks of goods now than they ever did, and in most cases are selling at prices that compare favor ably with those of the city merchant. The traveling salesman now visits all these little towns, where a few years ago he would pass them up. These country stores are keeping lots of business away from the city merchant, just as the country banks are living off the business of former patrons of our city banks. The above referred to business man says that in each of the towns he vis ited, where a sawmill is located, everything is lively. Every man witii a team is engaged in hauling logs, bolts, bark, posts, pulpwood, hub blocks or cordwood from the woods to the stations. lie says the reason business is a little slack in Wausau at present is that the rural people are so busily engaged in grinding out dol lars that they have no time to do any spending. If troubled with indigestion, con stipation, no appetite or feel bilious, give Chamberlain’s Stomach and Liver Tablets a trial and you will be pleased with the result. These tablets invigorate the stomach and liver and strengthen the digestion. Sold by all dealers. WAVISAVI, W 19., TIJESPAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1910. TO PAVE THE WAY. An Organization to Be Formed to In duce Manufacturers tr Locate Hera. About 75 or 100 people gathered at Castle hall last Thursday evening in response to a call from the Wausau Business Men’s club for a supper and business meeting. The first men tioned was served by ladies of the Bap tist church and the menu and service were excellent. After supper, pro ducts of the notorious tobacco trust and Diamond Match Cos. were passed around and then the talkfest began. M. B. Rosenberry,. as president of the club, called the assemblage to order and stated why the club’s offi cers uad called the meeting, gave somewhat of a history of the club, what it had accomplished and where it had met failure. He said tiie time was ripe for a reorganization on dif ferent lines—on plans that would in sure success—and lie urged that everyone give free expression to his views on “Tiie Future of Wausau.” Rev. Everett Johnson, Mayor John F. Lamont, C. S. Curtis, C. L. War ren, B. F. Wilson, C. E. Turner and others were called upon for ideas. Summed up, these gentlemen were all of the belief that there should be a fully organized association, having as its purpose the upbuilding of Wau sau along stable lines. We don’t mean in the same sense that tiie In dianan wanted an office, to help build up a stable government, stating his qualifications be that he had built the largest and best stables iff Marion county. Each had different views of what such an organization should endeavor to cover. Among these were : That new industries should be sought, but to get them no bonuses should be paid, for our natural advantages are suffi cient to warrant manufacturers to lo cate here. To get such industries it is necessary to secure good freight rates. To get good rates it is neces sary to maintain a board whicli will deal directly with the railroads. That the organization should not be dis tinctly commercial in character but should be broad enough in its scope to cover every phase of our industrial and social life. We are in need of institutions other than commercial. Matters of civic pride should be cov ered. Instances were related of how such organizations had built up other cities. The spirit of unity of effort and loyalty to Wausau, which is ever manifest, coupled with thorough organization, it is believed will ac complish great results. In accordance with the tiie expres sions of tiie speakers—all being in favor of organizing—Mr. Rosenberry called for suggestions as to procedure. J. N. Manson then moved that a committee of five, in addition to the president, be appointed to outline plans of organization. There being no opposition to this motion, Mr. Rosenberry appointed Messrs. C. H. Wegner, W. E. Curtis, M. C. Ewing, C. E. Turner and Chas. Barwig as such committee. This committee is to report at tiie next meeting, whicli will in all probability be called on Feb. 22, Washington’s birthday. At that time it is proposed to have pres ent some outside manufacturers, who will be called upon for addresses. SCARLET FEVER DEATH. After an illness of three days Dr. Tlios. Johnson passed away at his home, 628 Harrison boulevard, at an early hour Thursday morning. Death was due to scarlet fever. Deceased was a native of this state and was born on a farm in Columbia county Feb. 21, 1874. After his graduation from the high school of Columbus, he followed teaching for a number of years and then took a course in dentistry in the Milwaukee Medical college. He was graduated in 1903, and came to Wausau and located. He had practiced dentistry here ever since. He is survived by his wife, his mother, two brothers and four sisters. His mother and two sisters reside in Columbia county; the broth ers and other sisters live in other states. The remains were taken to his old home Saturday for burial. Services were conducted outside the late home Saturday morning by Rev. Jas. Duer. * * * Nina, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Felix Burns, residing at 706 Washing ton street, died Wednesday morning in St, Mary’s hospital, after an ill ness of nearly two weeks. Her ail ment was diagnosed as ulcers of the stomach, which caused hemorrhages. When it was seen she. was not im proving her father was sent for and he arrived here from Mississippi a few days before her deatii. Deceased was born in Wausau Feb. 28, 1890, and grew up to young womanhood among those who are mourning her early demise. She was a higli school student and would have been graduated in June. In addition to her parents she is survived by three sisters. Neva. Rena and Inez. Funeral services were conducted Saturday morning from St. James church by Rev. Fr. J. J. Brennan.

Great Flood— Oil Tuesday night Wausau was visited by one of the most severe storms ever known here. It had rained quite hard for several days, but on that night it was accom panied by wind and thunder and light ning, and it was feared that a catas trophe was about to occur. The river commenced to raise very rapidly during the latter part of the night, go ing up about ten inches an hour. Fears were entertained that the booms would be swept away, and some had fears of the guard lock. At Ip. m. the booms broke and from $15,000 to $20,000 worth of good merchantable logs were swept down stream. The property belonged to W. D. Mclndoe, J. C. Clarke, R. E. Par cher, Geo. Strobridge, Alex. Stewart. Nearly every dwelling house on Single street was stripped and the contents carried to safe quarters. The water raised eight feet in twenty-four hours, and the mills were in danger. Had the jam just below the guard lock broken, tiie bridge and some of the mills would have gone. As it is, the loss sustained will be severely felt by our lumbermen. One incident connected with this flood, where life was in danger, we must mention. J. C. Clarke, with three others w ere upon a pile of slabs built into the river bank of his mill, foF tiie purpose of protecting their rafting arrangements, when tiie por tion of the pile on which they stood broke loose. Two of the men suc ceeded in reaching the shore, while Mr. Clarke and the other one were National German American Bank.

They are usually the deluded victims of some exaggerated and highly colored advertisements. Sufferers from chronic and long standing diseases are often deceived in the same way by medicine for which extravagant claims are made. It is wiser as well as cheaper in the end to consult a specialist whose thor ough training and broad experience give him the power to size up the situation by minute investigation and practical observation. By going to the bottom of every case he naturally is in a position to prescribe intelli gently and with sure results. A specialist of exceptional ability and excellent reputation is Dr. L. M. Turbin, who is to be in Wausau, Wednesday, Feb. 9th. The coming of so able a physician makes it possible for sufferers who have hitherto found it impossible to get relief by other means, to avail themselves of his services. Evidence of w hat Dr. Turbin can do is to be seen among our townspeople, many of whom have him to thank for their present health and strength. Dr. Turbin may be consulted free of charge at the Beilis hotel, when he visits Wausau, Wednesday, Feb. 9th. SURPRISE PARTY. Ross Barden of the town of Easton, was very much surprised on Saturday evening last, when a number of his friends went to his home to help him celebrate his nineteenth birthday. Games and several musical selections were the entertainment for the even ing. Refreshments were served and at a late hour the guests departed, wishing Ross many more happy birth days. The party was composed of the Misses Nellie McHugh, Lucy Grim, Pearl Burns, Katherine, Anna and Alice Gleason. Clara Schoepke and Nina Christenson, Messrs. Malcolm Morneau, Fred and Nick Grim, Mike Coffman, Henry Gums, Reid Burns, Alfred Schroeder, Reuben Bentley and Hurley Moineau. Six patients of the Marathon county asylum were transferred last week to the Dunn county asylum. carried out into tiie stream, to the great danger of losing their lives. Mr. Clarke succeeded in reaching a little island just below, while the other had a cable thrown him and was pulled ashore in a half drowned condition. SATURDAY, JULY 17, 1869. SSO w ill be given to anyone who will make known the person who gave poison to about fifteen dogs in the village Sunday night. S. D. Knowles was kicked in the face by a horse and severely injured at Silver creek, six miles north of Wausau on Wednesday. Had he been hit two inches higher lie would have been killed. Hon. S. W. Bublong is busily en gagaged in this vicinity surveying a line for the P. W. & S. R. R. Our Eau Claire people a school picnic on the banks of that pleasant stream yesterday afternoon. The Wausau Cornet band went down and surprised the picnicers by favoring them with music. J. A. Farnham and family left Wednesday for points in Michigan, New York, lowa and other points. Within three weeks we expect to have the pleasure of announcing the organization of a working lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The Kolter and Felling build ings are already up and enclosed on the burned district. Sharpe, who was on trial for the murder of Blanchard at Stevens Point lias been acquitted by the grand jury. PERSONAL MENTION. —Miss Emily Nutter returned Sat urday to her school at Birnamwood. —Miss Mollie Burns of Minneapolis, came here Thursday night to attend the funeral of her niece, Miss Nina Burns. —Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Burns and Andrew Burns, all of Montello, ar rived in the city Wednesday evening to attend the funeral of their niece, Miss Nina Burns. —Clarence Thomas of Spokane, Wash., was in the city Friday. Mr. Thomas and family „were residents of Wausau up to about four years ago, he at that time being engaged as a lumber salesman. He is now engaged in the lumber business for himself in the West. He made a business visit to points down in Indiana, and took a run up here on his return trip, to visit acquaintances.
