TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 1910. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class tpatter. President Taft has been appealed to, requesting federal intervention to terminate the strike in Philadelphia. Thos. K. Laughlin, brother-in-law of President Taft, committed suicide by shooting himself last Thursday night. He was computed to be worth $20,000,000. Titeo. Roosevelt has ended ins hunt in Africa. On Friday, March 11th, lie was met on the White Nile by Walter Wellman, correspondent of the Chicago Record-Herald. Snobbish. Mrs. Philander C. Knox, Jr., the young woman whose recent elopement with the son of the secretary of state has attracted more attention than its real importance would warrant, is quoted as expressing regret concerning the reports that preceding her marriage she was a shop girl. “I am sorry, for my husband’s sake,” she is reported to have said, “that the papers have referred to me as a shop girl. I have never worked in my life.” By which work Mrs. Knox accentu ates the snobbery which is fast be coming a part of our natural life. Why, in heaven’s name should it be a matter of regret that she is reported to have worked honestly for a living? And what particular preitige attaches to her from the fact which she so pridefully refers to, that she has never worked in her life? The mere fact that Mr. Knox’s fath er happens to be a man of wealth and position does not confer special attain ments on the son, nor place him in a position w here his marriage need nec essarily be hedged about by any of the restrictions of royalty. If the girl he has married is a wholesome, virtuous, sensible and good tempered maiden, he is to be congratulated, and the fact that she had worked honestly to gain her livlihood would in no wise alter the situation, unless, perhaps it had made her more fit to assume the re sponsibilities of married life. And, if she were not all these things, then, no matter whether she had been reared in luxury, endowed with all the advantages of wealth and social posi tion, she would not be a good mate either for the son of the famous law yer, or for the shipping clerk in a de partment store.—Milwaukee News. ARE SALOONS MOST DANGER LESS PLACES? Professor Guttsladt of Berlin, has studied the record of the Gotha Life Insurance company and the Prussian government has published these records in the Klinscli Jahrbuch for 1904. it seems that Prof. Guttsladt looked up the causes of death of men over twenty-live years of age and he learned that in Prussia one hundred and sixty-one people out of every thousand die ot tuberculosis. He then wanted to know in which occupation there was the greatest number of deaths from tuberculosis. So lie compared again and found that: Of eve,ry 1,000 bartenders who die, 550 have tuberculosis. Of every 1,000 brewers, 345 have tuberculosis. Of every 1,000 school teachers who die. 143 have tuberculosis. Of every 1,000 physicians who die, 113 have tuberculosis. Of every 1,000 clergymen who die, 76 have tuberculosis. W. C. T. IT.

The Marathon Paper Mills plant, at Rothschilds, is now one of the most wonderful sights in this section. The mammoth buildings are nearly under cover: machinery is being placed in them: the work on the dam on the east side is progressing very rapidly; the concrete retaining wall is completed and the tail race for the east side of the river is completed. A large crew of men is at work on the 'vest side of the river hastening tire work of getting in the retaining wah on that side. As it is, if this wall is riot ready w hen the spring freshet comes, which will be in about two or three weeks, the west bank w ill be badly w ashed out, for the cur rent will lie directed in that way. The company is making every effort and expect to have everything in readiness for high water within ten days. No one can realize the enormity of this work unless they pay a visit to the buildings and dam. A village has sprung into existence since last fall and many of the new residences are now being occupied and others are just completed. In the buildings and dam, up to date some 7,000 barrels of cement have been used. Between 300 and 400 men are at work, and so many teams that one can hardly make his way around the grounds. It is an interesting sight and from nowon our citizens will go down in large numbers on every bright day. .Most of the men at work at Rothschilds live in the city and go to and from work on tiie street cars. * This immense work has meant a good deal for Wausau the past winter, without it our city would have been pretty quiet in more ways than one. Another great work in connection with the building of this big dam, is that w hich has been carried on in the cutting down of the timber and clear ing away the debris from the land which will he overflowed from Roths schilds to Wausau and up the Big Rib, Eau Claire and other streams. All of the pine trees on the fiat below the Rotlischilds pavilion have been cut down, excepting those occupying high ground and the fires burning up the rubbish piles can be seen in every di rection. The seemingly impenetrable forest, across the river from the pavil ion is all cut aw ay and cleaned up and one can now see the outline of the great lake as he looks up and down the river. At Schofield, from the vil lage to the Wisconsin river the land has been cleared of everything. The lake will run to the village and the water at the bridge w ill he raised four feet. This great work will furnish sight-seeing for Wausau people and their visiting friends, all summer, and when the lake is filled in the fall, Wausau will spring into notoriety at once as a lake city, with all the amusements that go with it. Those who have not been to Rotlischilds since last fall, should take advantage of the first opportunity to go down. But go prepared for a surprise. NEW SCHEDULE.
