Hugh Robertson was examined
yesterday and pronounced insane. He
is a young man, coming here a few
months ago from lowa and lias been
working for the Peth Candy Cos.
Recently he manifested “dippy’’symp

action being taken. He imagines he
is possessed of about as much money
as old John D. is reported to be worth.
Of late he has been spending money
lavishly—in Ids mind. The “shooting
in" of #15,000 at one crack was a small
item with him. He informed the
sheriff that he has a girl whom he
made a Christmas present of a diamond
ring and a set of furs. He desired
the sheriff to call on the lady, and in
duce her to return these, which the
sheriff obligingly promised to do.
When arrested he was carrying a new
automatic Colt's revolver. He served

Walter H. Bisneli's Hospitality Enjoyed
by a Large Number of Hia Friends.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
Rev. A. J. Koepp of the town of
Berlin who succeeded the Rev. F.

Werhlhn will conduct the services
and preside over the meeting.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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.

funeral of
Held in Mosinee at the Residence of
Louis Dessert on Wednesday
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
“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
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

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.

Wausau, Wis., Jan. 9, 1911.
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.

Who Was There That You Knew?
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.
