E. B. THAYER, Editor and Prop-VOL. XLVII.
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.
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.
Anew danger signal for railroad
crossings which rings an electric bell
during the daytime and illuminates a
danger sign at night is being installed
on a number of the dangerous cross

by the railroads or by order of the
state railroad commission. The in
troduction of one of these devices at a
railroad crossing costs the company

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.
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. Pike must weigli
at least a pound, muskallonge two
pounds dressed, sturgeon four pounds
dressed and trout must be at least
six inches in length and not more
than forty-five may be taken at any
one time.
Fruit crop reports from 44 counties
up to June Ist, sei.t to Secretary
Cranetield of the State Horticultural
society, shows apples less than one
lialf crop; native plums full crop;
Japanese and European plums none;
cherries full crop: strawberries bump
er crop, but acreage reduced by
drought last summer; raspberries and
blackberries badly injured.
No injury to trees of standard Wis
consin fruits but half-hardy kinds
badly winter-killed. In spite of light
bloom fruit growers are urged to
spray apples thoroughly.

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
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
