Last Saturday evening W. H. Bis sell invited the members of the Deer Foot Lodge club to partake of a seven o’clock dinner at his home. The guests arrived at that hour and were greeted by Mr. Bissell, who gave them such a warm reception that they felt right at home from the outset. At the hour of 7:30, Cone's orchestra played famidar airs and soon ofter the company of gentlemen (for all were men) repaired to the tables. While ladies were not supposed to be present at this function, still it was very evi dent that their indispensable assist ance had largely been drawn upon. Exclamations of delight and admira tion were heard on every hand at the beautifully decorated tables. There were covers laid for over forty; one table was arranged the length of the large living room north and south and extended into the diningroom; anoth er run the length of the dining room, east and west. Large bouquets of red carnations adorned the tables and there was a carnation at each guest’s plate; red tapers in ornamental hold ers added their light to the bril liancy of that furnished by elec tricity; a profusion of smilax added much to the beauty of the dec orations. Just nefore being seated, grace was invoked by Mr. Neil Campbell. The temporal good things, in quality and abundance, comported with the expectations raised at the appearance cf the tables, and voroc ious appetites were soon in a com atose condition. When the last course had ben served, and cigars were passed, “mine host” of the even ing, expressed his pleasure at having his friends with him and after a brief, felicitious address, called upon Sena tor A. L. Kreutzer to preside as toast master, admonishing him not to let a single man escape. Mr. Kreutzer was in his element and added much to the intellectual feast of the evening by the happy way in which lie intro duced the speakers. He kept all guessing, as to who would be the next to be called upon. The follow ing responded to toasts: M. B. Rosenberry, Rev. James M. Duer, C. C. Yawkey, F. P. Stone, 11. A. Pat terson, G. D. Jones, C. E. Turner and Neal Brown. The talks were inter spersed witli a verse of some catchy song known to all and at the close all arose and sang with a vim “Bissell’s a Jolly Good Fellow,” which senti ment all present carried to their re spective homes. Mr. and Mrs. Bissell were assisted on this occasion by their daughters, Mrs. Wm. Gamble, Misses Katherine and Margaret Bissell. It was an evening filled with pleasure and that will long be remembered. MILL WILL OPEN. The experimental pulp mill located near the city hall is ready to begin operations, all of the machinery and paraphernalia having been placed. Several car loads of bolts have been shipped to the mill to be used in the work of paper making. It is the in tention to make experiments with jack pine at the start, and later other native woods will be used. In the course of time woods from other parts of the country and Canada will be used. The mill is supplied with the neces sary machinery to carry on all experi mental work from the grinding of the pulp to the finishing of paper of var ious kinds. The work will be in charge of J. 11. Thickens’ who lias been making Wausau his home for some time. It is expected that dur ing the first few weeks things will not run smoothly, and ?or that reason visitors will not be admitted for some time. Many men engaged in the manufacture of paper w ill come here in the course of time to watch the experiments. The object in estab lishing this plant is C* determine what woods are adapted to the manu facture of paper and what are best suited for making different grades of paper. The results of these experi ments will be made known to the paper manufacturers through bulletins which will be issued from time to time. From this experimental work it is possible and quite probable that many soft woods, which at present are con sidered worthless, will in time be utilized largely in paper manufacture. There is almost no limit to the scope of the work. After the plant is in working order, which it is expected w ill be in a week or two, Wausau people will be ad mitted and conducted through the mill, and have each feature explained to them. The establishment of this mill will result in bringing many noted people and big guns here. Quite frequently commissioners are sent to the United States from European countries and the orient, to look into paper manu facturing and report to their home government- In the future such commissions will undoubtedly visit the plant here. RESIGNED. On Thursday evening last, Rev. G. C. Crippen. pastor of the .Baptist church, tendered his resignation to the board of trustees of the church to take effect on the Ist of February. This became quite generally known on Friday and Saturday and there were expressions of regret heard on every hand. Mr. Crippen came here over two years ago and he and his wife have made many warm friends who are very sorry to see them depart. Rev. Crippen will go direct to the University of Chicago, where he will take a course of study along minis terial lines. INSTALLATION. Rev. A. J. Koepp of the town of Berlin who succeeded the Rev. F. Werliahn as pastor of St. John's Lutheran church in the town Maine will be installed in his new field next Sunday afternoon. The Rev. F. Werhlhn will conduct the services and preside over the meeting. ERNEST HUTCHESON. Recital cii Friday Evening at Castle Hall, a G’.'eat Event, to Levers of Music. Mr. Ernest Hutcheson, who is rec ognized as a master of the pianoforte, and excelled by only a few in the world, appeared in a recital at Castle hall, on Friday evening, under the auspices of the Tuesday Musical club. It was the third entertainment of the winter’s course given by the club, and the general opinion is that Wausau has never listened tc so many great artists in one course. Mr. Hutche son’s program consisted of eight num bers, and by those competent to judge, it is said to have been, without any doubt, the greatest piano recital ever listened to in Wausau. It is to he re gretted that the audience was not larger. Mr. Hutheson in the East, wherever he is engaged to appear, plays before audiences that fill the largest halls or opera houses. He came from Philadelphia to Wausau to fill this engagement, and there was an indifference outside of the members of the club, however, there was no lack of appreciation among those present, in fact Mr. Hutcheson’s re marks before each number and his wonderful playing, aroused all present to the greatest enthusiasm. Alex Zenier of Appleton, came to Wausau to be present at the recital and he said : “I would go 1,000 miles to hear Mr. Hutcheson; there are only two in the world, in my opinion, who excel him—Paderewski and Hoff man.” Mr. Hutcheson remained in Wausau all day Saturday and impressed those who met him as a very charming English gentleman. He returned to his home in Baltimore that even ing. The next and last number of the course is Miss Emma Patten and Mr. Clarence Shepherd, soprano and or ganist. The concert will be given'in the M. E. church on the evening of Feb. 3d. One tiling, interest ing to our people, is that the engage ment of Miss Patten to Mr. Mitchell Hoyt was recently announced. The latter is a son of Mr. and Mrs. How ard Hoyt, former residents of Wausau. HOME FOR CONSUMPT* /ES. At the county board meeting last Tuesday, afternoon Dr. H. L. Rosen berry brought before that lxxly the proposition of establishing; a tubercu losis sanitarium in this viunity. He stated the average number of deaths in this county yearly, and advocated the establishment of an institution for the care of tuberculosis patients. Such an institution, lie said-, should be designed to accommodate all classes of people—rich or poor. Those who can afford the expense should be charged a fee for their maintenance. Those who are not supplied with funds should be treated at county ex pense. His idea was that if such a home is created it should be planned after a certain institution in Colorado, which lias a number of cottages for the use of patients. His idea was that if cottages were erected for the accommodation of sixteen patients it would answer present needs. The matter was threshed over by the board, and finally a committee was appointed to investigate the feasi bility of carrying out the plan and to report at the next meeting of the board. Plans were represented for the build, ings, which it was estimated would cost in the neighborhood of SIO,OOO. Several of our townspeople spoke in favor of the institution, and many members of the board were in favor of it. With this question, as there always is with all public matters, there is that uncertain element, and it is sometimes for the public good that there is. Some members wanted more time to look into the proposition and for that reason the committee was ap pointed. Asa site for such a sanitarium Rib hill was suggested. At the time the state anti-tuberculosis exhibit was made lie r e in 1909 the matter of open ing such a home w'as agitated faintly, and the above site was then spoken of. The points in its favor are alti tude, isolation from a settled district, and quiet surroundings. Sucli a home will be established on the hill some time, either by the state or county, for medical men consider it an ideal location. WILL KEEP FEES. At the county board meeting last week a question was brought up to determine whether or not the county clerk was entitled to fees for tiie sale of licenses. He was represented before the board by the firm of Kreutzer, Bird & Rosenberrv, the latter appearing in his behalf. Mr. King had previously corresponded witli state officials on the subject and was fortified with their opinion which was to the effect that he was entitled to the fees. Tiie amount in volved equalled $2,636,50. The resolu tion was introduced by E. C. Kret low, and certain members of the board intimated on the floor that tiie move was made for political pur poses. This was denied as being without foundation. Tiie district attorney was called upon for an opinion and lie said that tiie fees ought to be turned over to the county. Mr. Rosenberrv made a plea for the clerk in which he stated the opinion of the attorney general, and said that it would be unjust at this time to compel the clerk to give up the fees. When a vote was taken on the matter Mr. King won out, by the resolution being tabled. Solves ■ deep Mystery. “I want to thank you from the bot tom of my heart," w rote C. B. Rader, of Lewisburg, W.

The funeral of Joseph Dessert was held from the home of Louis Dessert at Mosinee on Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 4th. A large number of old friends of deceased went down from this city on a special train, which left the St. Paul depot at 1:15 and returned at 4 o’clock. The services were con ducted by the former rector of St. John’s church of this city, Rev. Fr. Wm. E. Wright, of Geneva, Ohio. The choir consisted of Mrs. L. A. Pradt, Mrs. Karl Mathie, Miss Her mione Silverthorn. and Messrs. J. W. Coates and H. J. Evans, all of this city. Of the last sad rites the Mosinee Times says: “The remains arrived in the village Tuesday evening accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Henry M. Thompson and daughter Edith, and Thomas Dever, of Milwaukee, Louis Dessert and wife, who had gone to Milwaukee for the purpose of accorapaning the funeral party here, and by Rev. W. E. Wright, of Geneva, Ohio, the first pastor of St. Tames Episcopal church and a personal friend of Mr. Dessert, it having been his request that Rev. Wright preach the funeral sermon. A large gathering of his former em ployees and friends were at the depot to meet the party ahd escort the re mains to the home of Louis Dessert, from which place the funeral was neld Wednesday afternoon. “An unusually large crowd was present at the ceremony in spite of the extreme inclemency of the weather, many of them gathering to pay a last tribute to the memory of a departed friend, employer and benefactor. Conspicu ous among them were men who had worked and toiled for the deceased in the early days of Little Bull settle ment. The special train which came down from Wausau at one forty-five added about fifty or sixty to he numbers that were present from this place and immediate vicinity. The condition of the roads made it next to impossible to get through by team, yet several did brave conditions to pay their last respects to a life long friend, notable among whom was Robert Freeman, who worked for Mr. Dessert for many years, coming here in 1850. “The plant of the Wausau Sulphate Fibre Cos., was closed down during the afternoon, as were also the business places, while the services were being conducted, and during the forenoon large numbers called at the house to gaze for the last time upon a face they loved. Asleep in death, from which no one awakes, yet so well had this wonderful man preserved his vitality, and so indelibilly were the familiar lines of his countenance fixed in their memory, that though he had been gone from their midst for years, it seemed but yesterday that he had hid them good bye. “The pall bearers were all men who had been in Mr. Dessert’s employ, and in the employ of the Joseph Des sert Lumber Cos., for twenty-five years and some of them as long as thirty five years. They were Thos. Davis, Frank Mcßeynolds, O. E. Edstrom, Fred Werner and Aug. Bachman, of this place, and E. Powers, of Black well. “In life Mr. Dessert had always been a great admirer of flowers, and the many beautiful and costly floral trib utes massed about the casket fit tingly emphasized one of the ideals of his life, for in the flowers of field or garden he always saw a thing of beauty that to him was one of the greatest gifts from the ruler of the supreme universe. And as the funeral cortege wended its way over the hill to the cemetery that was a gift of this gen erous hearted and noble spirited man to the community in which he had lived his life, there were many tear stained faces upon the street. And this expression of grief testified more than words can tell or pen can write, to the esteem, the respect in which this good man was held by his fellow townsmen.” WOMEN GOOD BANKERS. The First National bankof Wausau report that Wausau women are get ting tiie “banking habit.” It is the wife of tiie man who lias to be at work early and late who is looking after the cashing of his pay checks, and who is the treasurer of the fam ily moneys. She also deposits the money they intend to save for the proverbial “rainy day.” In this she is becoming more systematic. WHere in former times the monthly savings were hid at home in the stove or stocking bank until $50.00 or a SIOO.OO had been accumulated, she now de posits weekly or monthly the amount the family feels they can spare. She not only is looking after her lus bend’s earnings, but is anxious that her hoys and girls catch the “saving habit.” It is not an unusuai occur rence to have a mother come in and open a savings account for Charlie, James and Ne’.lie and May. The First National bank welcomes these small accounts, and offer the good mother every encouragement in her effort to conserve the family income. MISSIONARY PROGRAM.

Editor Pilot : Kindly permit a protest against the management of the Wausau street railway. I came from the west side on a car tonight but w hen we reached Third street the north bound car had gone and I walked home with my transfer in my pocket. High schoo students from the west side this morning w-ere similarly left. Yester day people coming from the west side to church were likewise left. Three times before, in the not distant past, when taking a car on account of rain, I have been similarly left. I have seen them leave others in the rain, e. g. a woman with a little girl. The cars can not be depended upon by the public in stormy weather. They seem to run for the pleasure of the crews. Some conductors are often as independent and insolent regarding the rights of the public as the great Vanderbilt. One’s greatest disap pointment is often in his inability to express himself promptly and ade quately without incurring the penal-' ties of the law, human and divine. A big Colt’s revolver to puncture the retreating rear window would best give prompt relief to one’s emotions. It is easy to sympathize with the recent declaration of a justice of the U. S. supreme court, published a few days ago. He. with a friend, was crossing Pennsylvania avenue, when they came near being run down by an automobile. The jurist remarked that some day a cow boy from the plains under like experience would get the chauffeur and the judge would dismiss the case. Must we execute justice ourselves or shall we appeal to the state railway commission? O. E. Wells. WHY BE BALD When Parisian Sage ia Guaranteed to atoop Falling Hair, or Money Back?

IN the shadowy ranks of those who marched to defeat or death or victory fifty years ago in the mighty conflict that convulsed this great nation, is there father or grandfather or uncle of yours? Would you like to see a photograph of him in that long ago day of his youth -a photograph that he never knew was taken? Perhaps we can show you one; and in any case, we can tell you a story, stranger than any detective fiction, of 3,500 priceless photographs that were lost and are found again. 3,500 Long Buried Photographs • of the Civil War THKY were taken by the greatest photographer in the United States of that day; they were bought by the United States Government for #30,000; they were buried in the W T ar Department for 50 years —they are buried there still. But a duplicate set was kept by the photographer—who died poor and broken down; that duplicate set was knocked from pillar to post for nearly 50 years, until it was discovered by a New England collector. J. Pierpont Morgan tried to secure the collection— Ex-President Garfield and General Benjamin F. Butler said it was worth #lso,ooo—yet with the help of the Review ok Reviews, the entire collection has been gathered into 10 great volumes and is placed within your reach at less than the value of one of the photographs. It is the one accurate. impartial history of the Civil Wat — for the camera cannot lie. It tells the story of the War you never heard before. Taken under protection of the Secret Service, these photographs bring to light thousands of little known phases of the war; they penetrate to strange places and record strange things.
