THRIFT The man or woman who is thrift}' — frugal, economical in his or her habits and expenditures—is bound to succeed. It matters not so much what you earn, but what you do with what you earn. Neither is it. absolutely important that your earnings be large before you begin to be thrifty. The foundations for sub stantial fortunes are laid early in life, and at a time when the income is small. That this is, and can be done, is demon strated right here in Wausau. The First National Bank is daily starting off scores of men and women on the road to success. If it is your ambition to succeed, to some day have a capital that will work, and provide an income? for you, and also a reserve fund that will come in handy when you most need it, come in and let us show you how you can get it as you go along. Come in any dav and let us talk to you about it. Anew brick school house is being built in March Rapids.

At the meeting of barbers held last Tuesday evening a proposition was put to the master barbers by the journeymen’s union to close at 8 o’clock every evening except Satur day, and on that day to close prompt ly at midnight. A few of the master barbers at first refused, but later all signed an agreement to that effect. There are twenty-one employing bar bers in the city. Following the meet ing cigars and brewery product were passed around. To paint or not to paint, that.is the question. Settle it by seeing Pier. Jack Frost was expected to appear in this locality last night but failed to show up. The shavings shed at the Goodwillie box plant caught fire Saturday even ing. Slight damage to the roof re sulted.

The law in killing deer remains the same j as the past two years. As Wausau is soon to have its j streets oiled, it may please our citizens , to know that the people of Sturgeon j Bay are very much pleased with the j success of this innovation, adopted in their berg. It is thought that the village will soon oil every street in town. The result of this method of treating roads is that there are dust less highways wherever the oil is applied. Caroline Wapinocki, aged fifty three years, died Wednesday in the town of Weston. She arrived there a few days previous on a visit from her home town in Illinois. She was taken sick on Monday and dropped dead on Wednesday. The cause of deatli being a complication of dropsy and heart failure. The body was re moved to her home town for burial. Wm.

Arthur Prehn, a member of the state board of agriculture, is arrang ing for a special train from this sec tion to carry people u the state fair. If the plan goes through, the train will leave Marshfield on the morning of Sept. IJ, at an early hour, passing through Wausau at about six o’clock. It is planned to have Cos. A and band of the Second regiment and Cos. G of the Third and a band of this city ac company the crowd from this section. It will not be known for several days whether or not the railroad company will entertain the idea. AUTOMOBILE BURNED. F. L. Renichs Car Destroyed by Fire Near Walkush’s on the Wausau Road. F. L Renich of Wausau, district agent for the National Cash Register company, is short one Suchart auto mobile and a suit case, and Charles R. Davidson, also of Wausau, repre sentative for the Washburn-Crosby flour, is out a suit case, as the result of the burniug of the former’s car Friday evening. The two gentlemen had been in the city during the day on business and at about 8 o’clock started for home in the car. All went well until a littD beyond Aug ust Walkush’s store, a mut four miles north of this city, when Mr. Renich noticed that the car was afire. The machine was stopped as quickly as possible and the two occupants jumped out, and as nothing could be done to quench the flames, all they could do was stand by the side of the road and watch the automobile burn. Each had a suit case in the machine, but fearing that the flames might ignite the gas oline in the tank and cause an explo sion they did not dare venture near enough to save their belongings. They returned to Mr. Walkush’s and from there to. the city, leaving for their home on the night train. It is said that it was noticed by people at Walkush’s that the car was afire as it passed, hut the occupants could not be informed. It certainly was fortu nate that the tire was discovered by Mr. Renich, or a bad accident might have followed and both gentlemen seriously injured. Stevens Point Journal. DISTINGUISHED MEN. On Thursday a special coach carry ing Gov. Francis E. McGovern and Ex-Govs. James Davidson and Geo. W. Peck passed through the city over the St. Paul road. A few people at the depot entered their car and greeted these gentlemen, Mr. Peck especially having a number of ac quaintances here. With the party were the state fish commissioners, Messrs. W. Burns of La Crosse, A. L. Osborne of Oshkosh, and J. Alford, F. E. Doty, W. Walter, C. E. Spense ly, H. Smith, E. A. Berg of Madison, together with James Nevins, the lat ter superintendent of the various state fish hatcheries. The governor had been in Camp Douglas part of the week reviewing the First regi ment, and joined the party at New Lisbon. They were bound for the state fish hatchery located in Minoc qua, and are making a tour of the state, visiting various fish hatcheries. The governor and ex-governors are accompanying the party purely for recreation, and spend time fishing wherever fish are to be had. It is reported that all but Mr. Peck had excellent luck at Minocqua, but the Milwaukee funny man failed to get a nibble. The gentlemen met with re ceptions in every town they visited. The state has provided for two addh tional fish hatcheries, and we learn that Lincoln county and Marathon county will make an efff t *o have one of them located in t is vicinity. There may be consideration given to this proposition, for the reason that so many fish are shipped here from hatcheries, and put ir.to local streams. It will be convenient for the fish commission to have a hatchery lo cated here. SAW WILD PIGEONS. Peter J. Hanson informed us yes terday that in looking over land on the NE NE of Sec. 5, T. 28, R. 6 E., he saw five wild pigeons. The loca tion of the land is near the village of Marathon. The wild pigeon is gen erally supposed to be almost extinct in this country. The Audobon society this year offered SI,OOO as a prize xor any one who could secure a wild pigeon’s nest. Thirty or more years ago it was an uncommon thing to see millions of this bird. At that time they would devastate fields of grain as fast as the grain w as planted. They disappeared all at once, and no body as yet has ever given a correct solution for their disappearance. Mr. Hanson claims that a year ago he saw a flock of five in another portion of the county. He lived in this country at a time when wild pigeons were numerous, and says that he is not mistaken as to the birds he saw a few day r s ago. ELECTION CHANGE. Under a law which was passed by the last legislature, great changes have been made in the registry methods in Wisconsin politics. In April, 1913, in all cities of the second, third and fourth classes, and villages and towns where registry is required, there must be anew registry of voters. No old poll lists or any part of them will be used in making out anew registry, and no person’s name will be placed upon the list unless he appears personally before the inspectors and makes a request that he be registered. An additional registry day is provided for. Any person whose name is not on the registry, but who is a qualified voter, shall be entitled to vote at the April election next year, upon making an affidavit in the usual form, one requirement being the declaration of citizenship. Another requirement of election clerks is that they forward to the secretary of state, before the general election, copiesof new registry lists, to be used in making lists for state political purposes authorized in the new corrupt practices act. MARRIAGE LICENSES. The following were licensed to wed, by the county clerk, the past week: Chas. O. Johnson and Ilulda Hel strom, both of city. Wm. Buchberger and Mary Hasen fuss, both of city. Never leave home on a journey without a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It is almost certain to be needed and cannot be obtained when on board the cars or steamships.

The passage of Chapter 50 of the laws of 1911 has brought Wisconsin manufacturers face to face with a new proposition. Under this act, as we understand it, employes of corpo rations or any organized company can collect insurance in case of injury while emplo3’ed in their regular pur suits. This has caused the manu facturers of the state to combine for the purpose of perfecting an insurance company which will fulfill the re quirements of the new law and at the same time protect them. For some time W. A. Fricke of this city, has been at work on plans for this com pany and at a meeting of manufac turers held Friday his plan was sut mitted and approved. The meeting was attended by leading manufac turers from all over the state, and the following committee was appointed to perfect the work of organization: H. W. Bolens, Kenosha; N. Paine, Oshkosh; Edw. O. Brown, Rhine lander; W. A. Fricke, C. C. Yawkey and Neal Brown of Wausau. The purpose of the company is to issue contracts of insurance which will cover death by accident, injury or sickness of employees. It will also guarantee to employers any compen sation for damages which may arise. The name of the company will be the Wisconsin Mutual Employers’ Lia bility Insurance Cos., and it will probably have its headquarters in this city. It will be organized with out capital stock. Up to the present most of the lead ing manufacturers of the state have signified their willingness to become members of the company, and it is believed that before long most every employer of labor in the state will be a member. LUMBERMEN MEET. The summer meeting of the North ern Hemlock and Hardwood Manu facturers’ association is being held in the city today. Many lumbermen are in attendance, it being considered an important meeting. The Wausau members of the association have pro vided a special car on the street rail road for the accommodation of their guests, and the meeting is being held in the pavilion at Rothschild, where dinner was served to the members this noon. It is planned to give them a ride on the river. Chas. H. Crown hart of Superior, chairman of the in dustrial commission, will make an address on the new workmen’s com pensation law. Among the subjects to be discussed will be market condi tions, insurance rates on logs and mill property, a proposed change in the manner of paying woodsmen, and anew scheme for uniform account ing. This is considered one of the most important meetings the association has yet held. W. C. Landon and R. S. Kellogg of Wausau, are respective ly president and secretary of the as sociation. STOLE CHICKENS. The police on Wednesday arrested Leo Nutter, a resident of the town of Wausau, for stealing chickens. A number of people of this city, and the country east of the city have been loosing chickens with a frequency. Nutter appeared at several of the meat markets on Wednesday and offered chickens for sale. As some of them were choice birds, the butch ers became suspicious, and notified the police. The result was that Nut ter was taken into custoday, and was not slow in making a confession of guilt. He not only comessed stealing chickens from Judge Warren and A. W. Erhicke, but owned up to a great many more thefts that the officers were not familiar with. In fact it appears that he had a monopoly of the business, and was about to organ ize a little trust. Those who lost chickens in this city got back a part of them. Nutter paid two visits to Judge Warren’s home. He went there on Sunday evening, and stole a number of fowl, and went back again on Tuesday evening and took five more hens. SCHOOL CONTROVERSY. Geo. Barnett, Geo. Juett and H. E. Beutner of the town of Brighton, were in the city yesterday on busi ness connected with the controversy which has arisen between four school districts in Marathon and Clark counties. Recently, action was taken wdiereby parts of the territories of the three districts located in the towns of Brighton, Hull and the vil lage of Unity were affixed to another district. The result was that a suit has been instituted in circuit court asking certiorari proceedings, com pelling officers of the districts to pro duce the minutes of the proceedings in which this action was taken. It is claimed by the petitioners that the action was illegal. As property holders in the four districts are interested there is a merry fight in sight. BUSINESS COLLEGE NOTES. R. D. Sanclie of the Record Herald, called at the office Tuesday. Alex. Enzmann of Ray, Minn., en rolled for the bookkeeping course last Wednesday. Mr. Enzmann came from Germany two years ago. Arthur Pagel, a former student, was a caller Friday. Miss Lora Braun of Merrill, called at the office Wednesday. She re turned to Merrill in the evening. F. D. Hoover of the Green Bay Business college, paid the college a pleasant visit yesterday afternoon. Happiest Girl in Lincoln.

The Wausau Motorboat club has planned a number of boat races, tub races, etc., for next Sunday. We can not give the program, for it has not as yet been entirely formulated. It is planned to have the races start at two o’clock in the afternoon, the starting point being at Rothschild. It is possible that one or more races will include the distance between there and this city, while a number of shorter ones are planned. There are so many good boats in the river now that some good races are looked for. One feature will be a race over a triangular course in full view of spec tators. The club desires to offer prizes for the different events, but is handi capped on account of a fiat pocket book. Our merchants are therefore importuned to do something along this line. A committee has been ap pointed to solicit prizes, but the gentlemen have decided that they will not call upon business men per sonally, but will ask them through the press to come forward, if they feel so disposed. Anyone having any thing to offer can leave the same at Louis Leak’s tailor shop or notify him. All prizes will be gratefully re ceived by the club. IN OPERATION. The Badger Turpentine Cos. began operations yesterday. The company has but recently completed its plant in the northern part of the city, but it is expected that henceforth the factory will be in continual opera tion. The first turpentine was turned out yesterday afternoon, in a crude form, and Messrs. Doren and Cate are well satisfied with results. The twelve retorts, into which the pine stumps which furnish the raw material are put, are capable of sup plying over 2,000 gallons of crude tur pentine weekly, as well as 3,500 gal lons of pine tar. The location of this factory here will be an incentive for farmers to clear their land of stumps, for the company pays real, hard money for the right kind of stumps. HONOR THEIR WOMEN MEN OF INDIA HIGHLY ESTEEM THE GENTLER SEX. Native Author Correct* Western Fal lacy and Asserts His Fel'ow Coun trymen Never Compelled Wid ows to Make the Suttee Sacrifice. Contrary to the usual western be lief, said Carath Kumar Ghosh, the Indian author, Indian women are more highly esteemed by their hus bands even than their western sis ters. The Indian is taught venera tion for women from his earliest boy hood. Any unkindness to a wife is supposed to be swiftly followed by misfortune and a man’s prayers are of no effect unless his wife joins in them with all sincerity. At a corona tion the presence of the sovereign’s wife is of the utmost importance. Should she be unable to appear a statue of her must be placed at her husband’s side. Otherwise the cere mony is not legal. The standard of morality, the lecturer asserted, is higher in India than in England. The Indian, it is true, is legally allowed to take a second wife should his first marriage prove childless, but it is most rare to hear of an Indian avail ing himself of this privilege. When the princess of Wales visited India she was regarded with the greatest veneration, not merely for her charm of manner or the fact that one day she would be empress of India but for the fact that she had five sons. Death was not forced on any widow, the lecturer asserted. They were free to choose for themselves. If they did not feel called upon to make the sacrifice of suttee they were always at liberty to refuse. However, should they desire to sacrifice themselves the act brought them a crown of martyrdom, earning for themselves the title of “Devi." It was an error to th*nk they were burnt alive. A cup of poison was drunk and cremation followed. Finally Mr. Ghosh related that a prediction calling down disaster on a man passed harmlessly over a woman, her moral standing being the higher of the two. The great dia mond of India, the Kohinur, carried with it a curse to the effect that its wearer would rule over India, but die a sudden death. A woman might wear the Jewel safely. The late Queen Victoria had it placed in the royal crown, but now, said the lecturer, It adorns the one made for Queen Alexandra by the order of the king, to whom the prophec; was sent from India. CITY COUNCIL. At a meeting of the city council, held Friday evening, Alderman Ed. Rifleman informed the members that he was soon to introduce an ordinance which would in fact do away w ith the present system of medical inspection in public schools. Mr. Rifleman is of the opinion that the teachers are fully able to attend to existing health conditions. It is his opinion i that the present cost of medical in spection is a needless expense to the city. In this matter he was supported by Alderman Mohr, who was primed ' with figures showing the cost of the j present system during the past year, j The latter took occasion to criticise local newspaoers in regard to the scarlet fever question. The Pilot may have something to say in the near future in relation to the proposed ordinance. Saloon licenses w ere granted to Geo. | W. Ahrens, on Third avenue, and Peter Norlock, on First street. Some time ago Swanson & Juedes applied for a license to conduct a saloon at 102 S. Third avenue. Im mediately afterward a petition was presented to the city council, signed by fifteen ladies, remonstrating against the granting of such license. The matter was referred to the com mittee on judiciary. This committee on Friday evening recommended in favor of the petition of the ladies. This brought forth a discussion, some opposing the report of the commit tee, and some favoring it. A vote w’as eventually taken, and the report of the committee was turned down. The license, however, was not grant ed. It was referred back to the license committee. A petition was presented and signed by the owners of moving picture show houses, asking that the present license fee of sls per month be put to $5. Figures were given showing that the highest rate of license for such houses in the state is but SSO per year, while here these concerns have been paying SIBO per year. The committee on licenses, to whom the matter was referred, recommended a license fee of S6O per year be charged to these houses. The matter was finally left in such shape that anew ordinance will be drawn covering license fees. A petition was read and signed by a number of vehicle owners, asking for a repeal of that part of the city ordinance, which compels them in stopping at a curbstone to bring the right hub of the wheel next to the curbstone. Their contention is that it oftimes causes them inconvenience. The petition was referred to the com mittee on streets and bridges and will be considered at the next meet ing of the city council. An outside company proposes to overhaul the water tank on East hill, at a cost of $2,150, guaranteeing that after such repairs are made there will be no leakage for three years. Ever since the tank was built, about four years ago, it has been in poor condi tion, leaking badly. One of our prominent citizens suggested to us a short time ago that it be abandoned by the city, and turned over to the residents of East hill, to be used by them as a storage place for their sauerkraut. The company which is known as the Good Products Cos., has its machinery at present in the vil lage of Rothschild, and is anxious to go ahead with the work at once. Didn’t Know How. It is said that once when Reginald de Koven was touring the country he found himself in the town of Dayton on Sunday. They told Mr. De Koven that an Episcopal church in the neigh borhood had a superb organ. Accord ingly, he went to that church, as cended the organ loft and sat beside the organist during the morning’s service. "You seem to know something about music,” said the organist, in a condescending way. “I’ll let you dis miss the congregation if you like.” “Why, yes,” said Mr. De Koven, "I would like that very much.” Accordingly, at the end of the re cessional. he exchanged places with the organist and began to play Men delssohn’s "Spring Song." He played beautifully. The Dayton people, en thralled by the wonderful music, re fused to depart. They sat in rapt enjoyment, and after the “Spring Song” was finished Mr. De Koven be gan something of Chopin. Suddenly a heavy hand was laid on his shoul der and he was pushed off the music stool. “You can’t dismiss a congregation," said the organist, impatiently; "watch and see how soon I’ll get them out.” Going Back Into the Past.

The Wisconsin Anti-Tuberculosis association’s exhibit and lecture at the market square Saturday evening, brought out a great many people. It proved to be an interesting and in structive feature of this society’s fight against consumption. Three motion pictures were shown, as well as a number of lantern slides. “The Red Cross Seal” dealt with breeding places of consumption, the trained nurse, cleaning up of danger ous places and the open air treatment of consumptives. Accompanying the picture is a story which arouses sympathy. “The Man Who, Learned” tells a story of the improvement of the milk supply of a large city. “The Fly Pest” will probably arouse all who saw it to the danger emanat ing from this source. The film showed the lly in a magnified form, displaying the hooks on his feet which pick up and carry tilth of decayed matter over which he walks and feeds on. The flies which promenade over your victuals leave part of some dead dog, decayed fish or other equally as foul matter scattered over them, and you eat it. Ugh!
