Clark was appointed to act as special lumber inspector for forty days at $4.00 per day and ex penses. In the afternoon the members of the board went out to inspect the fair grounds. Thursday morning a resolution w as adopted which provided for a com mittee of two for the investigation of a number of previous claims, to the amount of something in tiie neigh borhood of *4,000.* of some of the county towns against the city, on which the committee is to report, at the November meeting. The heating of the county jail prov ing expensive and unsatisfactory the public property committee was in structed to investigate the matter and if found fault}’ to be at once remedied. Members of the Board wandered down to the jail later in the morning to look over the premises and passed their opinion on its de fectiveness. At ths afternoon’s brief session a resolution was adopted to appropriate S3OO, to take agricultural products of the county to the state fair, which was met with some opposition and was finally reluctantly carried by an insignificant majority. At four o'clock a large majority of the members visited the asylum and home hospital, j for the purpose of looking over those | premises and found them ready for their reception then and at all times and commended Superintendent M. H. Duncan and ills capable wife in their management of those institutions. Friday’s session opened in the morning at 8:00 o’clock and closed at 10:30. The sum of S3OO was appropri ated to repair the west approach to the fair grounds, so as to make it more passable in wet weather, which was a very wise piece of legislation on the part of the Board and each one i> deserving of a bronzed medal for this action in this respect. E. C. Kretlow, W. F. Lemkeand Ernst Ringle were selected asa special committee to confer and act with the asylum trustees in reference to the purchasing of additional land for till able purposes for the asylum. F. X. Schilling and A. E. Reebet were chosen as a special committee to make settlement of indebtedness of the city to the county, as previous ly stated at Thursdav’s session of ihe Board.

Hie Wausau high school debating teams, who a month or more ago cap tured the leadership of the Central Wisconsin Debating league in which Antigo. Wausau and Marshfield were contesting, last Thursday evening won two of the most exciting and close debates from Tomahawk ever held in this vicinity. The negative team of our city debated the Toma hawk affirmative here while at Toma hawk our affirmative debated and the decisions of the judges at both places was a majority for Wa asau. At Tomahawk the affirmative team of our high school, consisting bf Albert Mohr, Walter Reinl old and Paul Tobey with Jule Young as al ternate, won after a lot of hard work. The Tomahawk team was composed of Max Pov'ell, Donald Lewis and F. Ileebar. The judges were A. H. Cole, Merrill; T. J. Ilolister, Minocqua; K. L. Naffz, Merrill. At Wausau, Thursday evening, the Tomahawk negatives, Leo Landry, Roy Lyons and Win. I version, gave the Wausau boys a most strenuous battle but after the finish the judges, the Messrs. Milne, Van Doren and Itunke, all of Merrill, rendered their decisions, 2 to 1 for the negative. Although only a small crowd pre sented itself at the high those there, at the reee ving of the notice of t lie double victory, made noise enough to make up for the lack of attend ance. The Wausau boys, Frank Rowley, Eugene Machmueller and Herbert Steinke very ably represented the high school ec.noosing the nega tive team. The home team, Thurs day, was tut to some disadvantage over the objections of the Tomahawk affirmative team to allow our team to use their alternate in regard to the chart, but the boys were not crippled much by this. These debates concluded the inter high schoo debates in which either of our teams will partake for this sea son. Coach Borsack has agreed to return next year, to the joy of all high school students as well as the debaters, and the line work which he lias accomplished in the intellectual field will be continued next year. Mr. Borsack certainly deserves much for his splendid coaching of the now champion debator of North ern Wisconsin. Coughs and Consumption. Coughs and colds, when neglected, always lead to serious trouble of the lungs. The wisest tiling to do when you have u. cold that troubles you is to get a bottle of Dr. King’s New Discovery. You will get relief from lhe first dose, and finally the cough will disappear. O. IL Brown, of Muscatine. Ala., writes: “My wife was down in bed with an obstinate cough, and I honestly believe had.it not been for Dr. lying’s New Dis covery, she would not be living today.’’ Known for forty-three years as the best remedy for coughs and colds.

Postmasters have received copie° of a general order providing for the in stallation of the collect-on-delivery system for the parcel post. The new rule provides that after July 1, 1913. packages may be sent by parcel post C. O. D., provided that the full amount of the postage on the pack age is paid and ten cents in parcel post stamps in addition to the amount required for postage, be attiched to the package. Cpon delivery of the package the person to whom it is ad dressed must pay the charges on the package and sign a receipt, which also serves as an application for a money order. This tag. together with the amount collected, is returned to the money order department, where a money order is made out to the send er of the package and forwarded in a penalty envelope, the money order serving the sender of the package as a receipt for the goods. No goods so sent may be examined until the charges on the package have been paid. No package can be returned after delivery. This new branch of the parcel post service will undoubt edly increase the business, and it is estimated that it will in time entirely do away with the express business in the United Stales.

LITTLE BOY LOST IN WOODS Little Armund Buchberger the three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. F. Buchberger gave his parents a worry and anxiety last Tuesday that they will never forget. Mr. Buchberger had been moving from his former home here east of the village limits to his new home in the town of Mara thon, on the farm which he purchased of Anton Linder last fall. The little boy was perhaps anxious to get ac quainted with his new surroundings. At about five o’clock in the afternoon Mr. Buchberger noticed him crossing the road near the house and brought him back into the yard, and warned him not to go away again. Mr. and Mrs. Buchberger were meanwhile very busy in unloading and arranging their household goods, and at six o’clock the absence of little Armund was again observed. A search, about the place for the missing boy proved to be in vain. A searching party of about 20 men was at once organized and the surrounding fields and woods were searched over and over for the little fellow. At last at about mid night their anxiety was relieved w hen one of the party found lit tle Armund sitting between two logs about three quarters of a mile from home in Ole Peterson’s woods Marathon Times.

Opposite the cemetery is a lonely grave, surrounded by a light picket fence. On every side of it are fallen logs and accumulated debris. Three times the forest fires have completely surrounded it but each time it has emerged unscathed with the pickets scarcely chaired. It serins as if a special Providence was watching over this little mound. We doubt not but that its wonderful escape from burn ing can be explained from natural causes. Forest tires are raging all about us, west oDus lire started near Rib mills, and gradually worked this way. The mills and lumber were saved after hard uor!:.
