ANNUAL TOURNAMENT Seniors Win Event of the Si* aeon at High School Friday Last Friday afternoon following the regular school session the seniors took first place in the annual girls’ basket ball tournament held in the high school gym. The senior class lassies carried themselves almost tc a limit by capturing the championship of the school three times during their four yesys of high school work. Following, the seniors leave the freshmen and junior teams. The attendance at the games was large and all the proceeds from this source are to be used in the buying of outdoor athletic apparatus for the various schools of our city. The afternoon was divided, there being four games played, all of which were exceptionally interesting. Ttie fine team work and individual play ing of the various teams shows us the amount of hard work Miss Zellhoefer has been putting into this and she deserves much praise for their show ing. The first game of the alter noon was between the junior and senior girls. The playing was close and ihe first half closed w ith the seniors in the lead 5 to 4, hut this could not long continue, for the seniors next half outplayed their opponents, win ning 15 to 8. In the second game the sophomores and freshmen, well matchel, played an excellent game finally ending in favor of the freshtnen by the score of 9 to 7. Now came the fastest and most ex citing contest of the afternoon, giving the seniors first place in the tourna ment and the freshmen second place by the score of 11 to 9. An extra few minutes was played as the score was tied when time was first called. The last game was a rather inter esting orje for the juniors humbled the sophQmores by the score of 12 to 2, thus making the sophomores last in the tournament . Universal opinion is that next year the freshmen will have a fine field for the championship. The sepicr girls have all had much trouble over vaccinated arms and so deserves much praise for their dili gent efforts in bringing their class to the frrint again. LAWRENCE GLEE CLUB Large Audience Entertained Leal Thurs day at the M. E. Church. The Lawrence College Glee Club gave a very entertaining evening last Thursday at the Methodist, church. A large audience was present to hear the students sing and all appreciated greatly the excellent program which was rendered by them. The singing of the Alma Mater of Lawrence was received very enthusiastically by many of the former Lawrence College students of this city who attended. The program was an excellent one consisting of music of the highest order, with also many comic songs as wet* as several readings by Howard Watson. These were very cordially received and Mr Watson responded several times with encores. Probably Wausau people were more interested in hearing this club than others which have been here for the reason that Curtis Boyce of this city is in the chorus. The club was very ably accompanied by C. J. Waterman, musical director, and R. Bauman, accompanist. The Lawrence Glee club has made a visit to W’ausau annually for many years and those visits have always been looked forward to with much pleasure by our people generally. The entertainments given by it here have always been well attended and certainly greatly appreciated. Much of the credit of the splendid audience turned out last Thursday belongs to the Methodist boys under whose man agement, we understand, the club has been secured again this year. During Thursday afternoon the Lawrence boys greatly delighted the high school students by singing for them. WAUSAU MARKET.

IctTSJ PURCHASING A PIANO By JENN'E CONNERY. “My wile and I bare been buying a piano,’’ tiaid the man in the smoking 2ar. “If you went shopping for a piano you’d better get me to tell you how it la dons. Anyway, you can’t keep me from telling you. “First, you decide that you might Just as well quit hoping ever to have enough money tc buy a piano, and then you take the bull by the horns and say: ‘Oh,, well, well go in debt for it. That’s the only way some folks will ever hare anything, and we happen to be that kind of folks. So here goes. We’re sure always to be in debt anyway, and one nr'eht as well be hanged for a sheep as a amb.’ “Then you ask a number ci musi cians wt.at kind of a piano is best. If you asked only one that would be all right. Hut you ask several of them, and that way lies madness. Each tells you of one piano that is right. No other one is. Especially the one recommended by the musician you asked yesterday—that one is the last word in superlative worthlessness. “So after you have asked all the musicians you know you are where you begin, plus a alight buzzing be neath tbe hatband. ’Then you decide that you’d better pick out a dealer, ao you start on the rounds. “You ire received with open arms at each place and each dealer shows you wht.t Is without doubt the best piano made. You believe It yourself, when hci says It that way. Besides, he shows you an Inferior piano that Is just as good as the better one. Get that, carefully! The Inferior one is just as good as the other, every bit— made by the sums people. “But you’d be foolish to buy one of the cheaper ones. It is decidedly in ferior, though It has the same work manship and material and guaranty as the other. Don’t waste your time trying tc> understand bow this can be, but it must be. They all tell you that No piano shop Is complete without some good pianos and some other poorer ones that are equal to the beK only they are not “You tell one dealer that you want a player piano. He gets out a selection the ’The Gander's Retreat From the Barnyard,’ or ‘Moonlight on the Pump’ or a descriptive piece called ‘Cats on the Back: Fence.’ Just some little thing like that.. It la In a box. and when it la unrolled you see something that looks like a piece of wrapping paper that had. been ahot at with a muzzle loading army muaket used for busk shot. Yes, and every shot had struck. “The salesman places this embroid ery pattern in the Jigger in front, where the cuckoo doors open, and proceeds to wiggle his feet while be mysteriously manipulates some per fectly simple levera under his hand. Then, with wrlthlngs of agony, as if his whole soul were going into his Job, he works the iking through. You are thrilled and you firmly believe that is the best piano made. “The next day, or the same day if you stand the strain, you go to an other dealer and he does the same thing. They all tell you the price is nine hundred apd fifty dollars. But you are fortified with stories of how Smith got two hundred dollars off from the list price on his piano and Jones tad one practically given to him to keep the other dealers from selling him one. In fact, if one be lieved all that one's friends have said one would be led to think that a piano costs so little to make that it is cheaper to hire ooxne one to haul them away and burn them than to pay taxes on them In the storeroom. “One thing yea will learn In each place is that the beet musician In the city—always a different person, by the way—has Just hooght a piano of that particular make end recommends it highly to everybody. "I must not neglect to tell you that the salesman finds, just as you are starting to leave*, e piano he had for gotten. Juat befere he rings the bell to send for the iterator that they use to haul passenMga on he thinks— with a cKp of lbfs hand to his fore head —of a piano that has just come In. It tea been need for about fifteen minutes somewhere, and for that rea son he will knoelt seven hundred dol lars otf the prlee. Don’t ever start a muslo store without a piano of that sort In atock. It *rould be a poor store. “Thei a some of the things you find out . an you go shopping for a piano. I do not go Into the buying part, for that: part Is never quite clear to the purchaser. He remembers many things up almost to the moment of purchase, and then he goes Into a trance And lets the man sell him al most anything to get the Job off his hands.’’ Thlr Parting. All too abort had been their asaoclv tion. ill too uoon had come a parting of the ways. Thla being the case, Mary Jane and her mistress consid er and It an apt moment for the throw ing or of a few remarks. “I bo;?e you will leave In a respect able manner," said the mistress tartly. "You came with your box In a low down. plebeian wheelbarrow." "And I’m going away in a motor car," snapped the domaetlc- "My new missus la sending one." "Then," cavilled the mistress of the past, “why doesn’t It drive up In a respectable manner to the front gate?" "Well,” replied Mary Jane, "perhaps they don't want people to think they're on visiting terms here." For Gentlemen In Hard Luck.
