Dm!hm Cannot So Cured
by kx'tl applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear. There is only one
way to cure deafness and that is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed
yon have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear
ing. and when it is entirely closed, deafness is
the result, and unless the inflamatlon can be
taken out and this tube restored to Its normal
condition, hearing wUI be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
which is nothing but an Inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any

TO BOOM WISCONSIN.
A meeting was held in the club
house last Friday morning at w hich
many land owners and people inter
ested in the development of Wiscon
sin were present. George Girling of
Chicago, secretary of the National
Home Seekers’ association, and A. D.
Campbell, state immigration commis
sioner, were present and made ad
dresses. Besides these there were a
number of others from out oi the
city who attended the meeting.
G. D. Jones, E. A. Dunn and Gus
Heinemann were appointed a com
mittee to solicit membership for the
Wisconsin Industrial association.
The fee was fixed at one cent per
acre owned by real estate men and a
flat rate of $lO for those not directly
interested in the sale of land.
Both Messrs Girling and Campbell
gave interesting talks on the resources
of this state.
We have forty million acres of land
lying idle here in northern Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Michigan, enough to
make one million 40-acre farms, which
would provide homes for five million
people.
Wisconsin is now' being forced into
the question in spite of herself. It
has come to a question of keeping the
people in the state here. For some
time people have been leaving the
state to go to the far away places
whicli are so alluringly advertised,
and instead of gaining farmers, as we
naturally should, we are losing them.
This state should be thoroughly ad
vertised. Other states and sections
have spent thousands of dollars where
Wisconsin has spent but a few cents.
Tiie idea of organizing a state associa
tion to advertise Wisconsin, has been
under consideration for some time.
We must show people outside of the
state what Wisconsin really has.
Both Mr. Campbell and Mr. Girling
in the course of their remarks show ed
the fake methods that are utilized to
bring the public to worthless lands
in Canada and in the west.
In the irrigation belt the govern
ment is spending millions of dollars
to make tillable 3,000,000 acres of
land, one-fifteenth of what is lying
idle in north Wisconsin, Minnesota
and Michigan and which is ready for
cultivation at but a small fra'”ion of
tiie cost of the western lands. And
the worst of it is, says Mr. Campbell,
that the irrigation method has prac
tically ruined 750,000 acres of land
by turning it into alkali swamps
which must now be drained to be of
any value.
A meeting of the state association
will be held in Milwaukee next Thurs
day.
RUN BY A SYNDICATE OF RICH
MEN.
A syndicate composed of the monied
men of Rhinelander, has purchased
the Vindicator of that city, and pro
pose to run a larger and better paper
than heretofore and perhaps convert
it into a daily. These papers pur
chased by wealthy citizens of a town
are weaklings. No matter how well
and ably they are conducted, the peo
ple know- they are organs solely to
further the interests of its stock*
holders, and w hat is the result? Any
thing advocated by a paper of this
stripe is killed deader than a door
nail. Such a paper has no character,
no individuality, no weight in a com-’
munity and is merely run to gratify
the whims of men who hare more
money than they know what to do
with. Show us a paper run by a syn
dicate of rich men and we will show
you that the community in which it
is published is ever against it politi
cally and in every other way.
E. E. Payne of this city, who has
been on the Record-Herald for
the past two years, will take
charge of the paper on the 13th of
Aug. Mr. Payne has been the one
shining light on the Record-Herald
and has looked after its editorial and
heavy local work, in a very able man
ner. In this line he has no superiors
outside the large cities. The many
friends of Mr. and Mrs. Payne of
Wausau deeply regret their depart
ure.
SCHOFIELD MILL.
The Brooks & Ross Lumber Cos. is
having its pine and hardwood logs
hauled to the mill of John Manser in
Kelly and they are being cut into
lumber in that institution. The
company is dumping some hemlock
into the pond in Schofield. While
the officers of the company are reti
cent about the matter, enougli lias
been learned to warrant the asser
tion that the mill w ill be rebuilt in
Schofield, but probably not this
year. Most of the single men em
ployed in the mill have gone else
where we learn, while the men of
family owning property in Schofield
are, for the most part, working on
the dam of the Marathon Paper Mills
Cos.

The Wausau team returned home
yesterday from Rochester after playing
fourteen games around the circuit, of
which the team won seven, tied one
and lost six. Double headers were
played in Red Wing and Rochester.
One of the swei cranium games w ill
have to be played over, for no decision
was reached. It resulted in a tie and
was called in the tenth inning on
account of darkness. Wausau took
four games from Red Wing.
Beginning with yesterday, fifteen
games will be played at home before
the team takes another swing around
the circuit.
After that the team takes one more
trip and finishes the season by playing
six games at home with La Crosse and
Winona.
There will be three more Sunday
games at home—Aug. 14-21 and Sept.
11. There should be a good attend
ance on those days especially, for the
team needs the patronage and the
boys play better ball when the crowd
is large.
Eau Claire has sold three of its
players. Kick, right fielder, Kading,
first baseman, and Callahan, center
fielder. The last mentioned was sold
only a few days ago to the Cincinnati
Reds. He is to report at the end of
the season. Callahan is heading the
league in batting.
Anew umpire is refereeing the
present series. He gave good satis
faction yesterday. He has lungs of
leather and calls balls and strikes
without a stutter.
The Eau Claire team has developed
into a quarrelsome bunch among
themselves. The players were wrang
ling throughout the game yesterday
and it is plainly evident that there is
dissention on the team, which spells
a slump.
Frank Newhouse former umpire in
tiie old W.-I. league Is this summer
umpiring in the Central league.
Only one Wausau pitcher appeared
at the game yesterday in uniform—
Fennell. It is unnecessary to maek
comments as to the management.
Fennell is certainly the hard luck
pitcher of the league. He pitches ex
cellent ball, but a few fumbles on the
part of his teammates always loses
the game.
GOT CIGARS, ETC.
A few r fellows who have not made
up their laden mind as to where
they belong in the two flocks of sheep
traveling under the banner of the re
publican party, a few half-breeds,
some democrats and a bunch of big
guns—the stalwarts—met at Castle
hall Saturday night to listen to the
spoutingsof Geo. Hambrechtof Grand
Rapids and Levi Bancroft of Richland
Center. The audience, all told, must
have made the local ring masters feel
like a boy who has sat down on an
ants’ nest. It was small in compari
son with their past achievements. It
was intended as an S. A. Cook and
Hambrecht meeting, and that it was.
The Wisconsin Valley Lumbermen's
association’s candidate for congress,
Mr. Ham and Eggs took the responsi
bility of wiggling his tongue, and the
effort killed him—so far as being a
vote-getter in this city. His effort
was about as lifeless as a caterpiller
race. He quoted a few of Abraham
Lincoln’s remarks, read a lot of news
paper clippings and doled out a lot of
frothy gush which made everybody
sick. He quit just in time to save
the audience from going home.
Everyone was edging around in their
seats as if their duds were infested
with fleas.
Then came Levi, lie with the Heb
rew baptismal name. Levi is a pretty
fair talker—he got his training in J.
P. courts. His effort that evening
can be best characterized as a sermon.
He dug into the bible and used much
of its words for his sermon. Like old
man Jucklin in Opie Reed’s novel, he
knows the good book from “kiver to
klver.” In an indirect way he threw
the gaff-hook into Bob, but did not
mention his name.
After the show was over w ith segars
and matches were passed around and
everybody smoked.
We have since been wondering why
Mr. Bancroft and the lumbermens
tool came here. The only answer we
have arrived at is that oh!
w hat’s the use.
BENEFICIAL RAINS.
The rain showers of last Tuesday
night, Wednesday morning and yes
terday afternoon were of great help
to this particular part of the universe.
The two first mentioned resulted in
squelching many forest fires, and
slowing up the progress of others
w hich have since been burning. The
showers appear to have readied more
territory west and north of Wausau
than east and south of us. Reports
from the northern country are to the
effect that more showers visited that
country than we had here.
We are informed tiiat the crops—
grain and root—look far better north
of us than here. It is said that grain
and potatoes in Lincoln and Oneida
counties look well. We are informed
that the potato crop in the great
potato producing counties, Waupaca,
Waushara and Portage, is so light
that for the first time in their history
it will be necessary to ship Murphies
into those counties to supply the
demand.
CAMPING PARTY.
A party of young people went up
the Eau Claire ti e past week and
spent four days camping in an ideal
place between the upper railroad
bridge and Kelly The party was
chaperoned by Mrs. C. C. Parlin and
was composed of the following:
Misses Florence Crosby, Ida Jaines,
Edith Hughes. Irene Johnson,
Messrs. Emery James, Robert Peter
son, Neai Stanger and Orlando Jewel.
They returned home on Friday.
=HE DROPPED DEAD=
when he saw the nice line of fall stock of Furni
ture we carry, and heard the low price we are ask
ing for each piece. His wife had a fit and little
Johnny tui’ned a double back summersault when
they fully realized the comprehensiveness of our
stock. Old Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Smith are still
talking about the affair, and ’low that the goods
are ’bout the purtiest they ever seed.

BUILDING A DOCK.
The Brooks & Ross Lumber Cos. is
constructing a dock in Schofield along
the north bank of the Eau Claire
river. It will extend from the bridge
west to a point where the river nar
rows, some 400 feet distant. It is be
ing constructed of dead heads and
old boom sticks picked up out of the
river. They are laid criss cross, and
later filling will be dumped In. The
dock will be raised several feet high
er than the normal flood of water
will be after the Rothschilds dam is
completed. The water in the Eau
Claire at that point will be raised so
that it will back up onto tiie rocks
below tiie dam. The dock will afford
a landing place for the many launches
and boats whicli will be on the river
after the construction of the dam.
The water at its edge will be eight
or ten feet deep normally and it is ex
pected that it will afford an excel
lent fishing place. The good people
of Schofield expect to get many a
meal from that dock, and its con
struction forms a topic for consider
able conversation among them. The
building of the dock lias given rise
to the belief that the Brooks & Ross
Lumber Cos. expects to rebuild its
mill in that village.
We learn that as soon as this work
is completed another dock will be
built between the bridge and the
dam on the south side of the river,
also a number of houses. The pres
ent is tiie best time to carry on such
work, while the water is low.
BRIDGE WHIST.
Mrs. M. A. Hurley entertained at
a bridge whist party on Wednesday
afternoon in honor of former resi
dents of Wausau who were then in
the city, viz: Mrs. James McCrossen,
Pasadena, Cal.; Mrs. J. D. Ross, Oak
Park, 111.; Mrs. L. E. Thayer, Everett
Wash., and Mrs. H. H. Grace, Super
ior, Wis. There were five tables of
players and the game was played un
til after five o'clock when refresh
ments were served.
It was a very enjoyable afternoon
to all who participated. Those who
won prizes were Mesdames A. W.
Mumm, C. F. Dunbar, F. W. Burt
and H. H. Grace.
Literary Note.
The best ten novels: Ours and nine
others.
MORE FIRES.
Forest fires have broken out again
in tills locality since tiie last rains.
The air is laden w ith smoke and there
is every evidence that there are fires
not far distant from tiie city. We
learn that a large fire has broken out
down in the Dancy country and that
others are consuming valuable tim
ber In the towns of Elderon and
Franzen. We are Informed that a
man near the village of Edgar set
