The most beautiful sight ever seen or planned here in Wausau was the May fete or festival given by three thousand children of our public schools, under the direction of Miss Marilla Zellhoefer, assisted by the teachers of the various schools, on the high school campus last Wednesday afternoon. The festival was that in the full sense of the word’s meaning; the prettily dressed children enjoyed themselves as much in going through their various drills as did the several thousand spectators watching the performance. There were all kinds of drills—from the opening march to a May pole dance- and everyone was executed in a da tee step to the music of the high school orchestra, which played throughout the per formance. Hew it ever was possible for Miss Zellhoefer to drill such a mass of children into keeping such perfect step and time, was a puzzle to the spectators. Her work is certainly deserving of the highest praise. The festival lias proven itself such a pleas ing and enjoyable affair to the chil dren and their teachers, as well as the people who were lucky enough to witness it, that it is now planned to make the fete an annual feature of our schools. The large and spacious campus was crowded to its utmost capacity and for a time it was feared that the crowd would interfere witli the drill work of the children. RETURNED TO MARATHON * COUNTY. Mr. and Mrs. James Sexton and children who went out West early last spring, to visit and with the idea of locating, provided they liked the country, have returned and they are again on their larm In the town of Hewitt. They went to Leavenworth, Wash. The country there is not adapted to farming, it is more for fruit raising. The fertile lands lie in the valleys between the mountains. There is one good thing about that section, it is much milder than it is here. If Mr. Sexton can dispose of Ills fare here he says lie and his family may go west to reside. How ever, their friends are delighted to see them back. NEW SIGNAL.

TRAIN LOAD OF LIVE STOCK Will Be in Wauaau Thursday, June 6. Don't Nias It. One man cannot increase the pres tige of the state in producing live stock. Wisconsin has grown to be one of the greatest live stock states in the Union because of the united efforts of all of the men interested in this line of work. One of the great est things that has been done for im proving live stock is the running of special live stock trains. The first train was run a few weeks ago in the southern part of the state. The second trip will be made during r,ho next two weeks. A carload of livt, stock is taken on the trip as well as other exhibits that serve to illustrate the points men need to know in get ting better results from growing live stock. Prof. G. C. Humphrey, Prof. J. L. Tormey, Prof/J. G. Fuller, Dr. A. S. Alexander and other lecturers from the College of Agriculture of the University of Wisconsin will accom pany the train and illustrate their lectures witli the live animals. The whole plan has been worked out by the State Live Stock Breeders’ asso ciation and several speakers from this organization will give the results of their experience to the farmers who attend. The train will be at Wausau June 6 from 9 to 12 a. m. FISHING SEASON OPENED. June 1 marked the opening of the fishing season in all the waters of the state, save three inland taxes, for all game fish except speckled trout. The season for these opened on April 15 and will clCoc on Sept. 1. The opening lay under the old law for all other game fish except bass was May 25, but the last legislature changed it to J une 1 and the season is now uniform for all game fish ex cept trout. In Big Green lake, Green Lake county, where the water remains cold late in the season, the fish spawn later and for that reason black bass and Oswega yellow bass are protected until July 1. In Devil’s lace, Sauk county, the season is closed for all game fish from Dec. 15 to the fifteenth day of the fol lowing June, and in Mirror lake and Dell creek, Sauk county, the closed season is also from Dec. 15 to June 15. It is unlawful to have more than titeen black bass or Oswego yellow bass in one’s possession at any one time or to take bass less than ten inches in length.

Ideal Conditions Prevail, Making the Day the Prettiest in Years. Seldom, if ever, has nature smiled on the Grand Army of the Republic as it did on Thursday. More perfect conditions could not have been fur nished, and as a result the celebra tion of the day, dedicated to the memory of those who once served their ccun.'ry in the field of battle, was truly a patriotically successful one. The National colors were every where in evidence, and the city bore a holiday aspect, as lias been seldom seen here before. Early in the morn ing people wended their way to the cemeteries, to decorate the graves of their beloved ones of years gone by, and whose presence still lingers in the memory of the living. It can be safely said that over one thousand persons were busy decorating graves in the forenoon of that day The program was carried out as had be *i announced previously, and the crowds attending both the exercises at the court 1 muse square and at thecerrt tery were never so large nor so at tentive. Already during the noon hour peo ple in holiday attire formed groups about the couit house and it was soon after one o'clock when the German veterans marched to the square and formed a circle around the mounu ment. The members of Cutler post. No. 55, followed shortly and took up the space within the circle formed by the German veterans. Company G, W. N. G., and the Fourth Regiment band were also present, while the Boy Scouts carried forth masses of liowers with which the base of the mounument was decorated. The ritual services of the Grand Army were performed, after which the par ticipants took places about the band stand, where the balance of the first part of the day’s program was tiien carried out. Several hundred school children sang the “Star Spangled Banner” under direction of Miss Florence Crane, and accompanied by the band. Attorney James P. Riley then recited Lincoln’s Gettysburg address, after which Rev. William H. Gould gave an address on the “Un known Dead.” He paid a high tri bute to those fallen heroes, who died on the battle field and were buried where they had fallen, whose identity never was known, they having enlisted from all parts of the country at the call to help save the nation, and through their deatli earned the vic tory for which the country now is thankful. To these “unknown fall en’’ belongs chietly the credit of hav ing won the great battle, and to them we owe tribute of recognition and praise. At the conclusion of the elo quent eulogy of the nation’s heroes by Rev. Gould the line of march to the cemetery was tiien formed. The parade was led by the Colum bia band, followed by Company G, the Fourtli Regiment band, German veterans and others, the members of the G. A. R. being taken to the cem etery in special street cars. At the cemetery the Grand Army ritual ser vices were carried out on the old soldiers’ lot and the graves of the de ceased veterans were decorated witli liowers by the boy scouts, the flowers being furnished by the Ladies’ Liter ary club. By this time the rarade had arrived and the crowd surged around the stand at the north end of the cemetery, where the closing ex ercises took place. Both bands played national airs and the audience joined witli song. After the offering of a prayer by Rev. F. H. Brigham, C. B. Bird was introduced and de livered an address on the origin and meaning of Memorial Day. He re called the turbulent times preceding the great strife between the North and the South the anxious hours by the head of our Nation in solving the problem of how to save the country from the enemies both within and without, and the patriotic response of our citizens to the call co arms. He also lauded the grard spirit of freedom and liberty which was at times shown by the Ameri can people when danger threatened the country and the hands of the op pressor were endangering the liberty of its citizens. Mr. Bird called at tention to the great assistance ren dered our country by the German blood that flowed and the sacrifices brought by individuals of the Ger man nation. lie said, that now that the great work of our old soldiers is done, the America*, people should never fail to show tl eir gratitude and should constantly do so by honoring the dead. Mr. lord's address was listened to with -,reat interest and his words left a deep impression on all o' his audience. Judge Louis Marchetti then ad dressed the German veterans in Ger man lie referred co the fact, that they themselves being veterans of one or more wars fought in the interest of their fatherland, and that many out of their ranks fell in battle, they could so much easier and better appreciate at this time the patriotism which animated the soldiers of the Grand Army in their tight for liberty and union: that by laying a wreath at the base of the monument on the court house squat e they did show their appreciation of the services rendered by the soldiers of the Grand Army during the civil war; and that by this act the German veterans gave expression of their own love for their adopted country and that it is their aim to be as true and patriotic Amer ican citizens, as they have been true and dutiful to the country of their birth. Rev. J. M. Duer pronounced bene diction at the close of the address, j and the exercises were concluded with OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO.
