Sidney J. 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.

DOUBLE VICTORY THURS
DAY
Debaters Win First Place in Northern
Wisconsin.
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.

C. 0. D. BY PARCEL POST.
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. Any package so
sent is insured' for its value, which
shall not exceed SIOO, without extra
charge. C. O. D. packages may be re
ceived by and sent to money order
offices only.
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.
