OTICIAL CITY AND COUNTY PAPER. TUESDAY, JUNE 24, 1913. uhlished weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter Secretary Bryan has issued a statement giving his unreserved en dorsement to the currency reform urged by President Wilson. Pelky, whose blow killed Luther McCarthy on the 24th of May, was acquitted of the charge of man slaughter at the trial which ended last evening at Calgary, Alta. The jury was out one hour. Congress on Friday turned its eyes from the tariff and scrutinized the currency bill. The measure been presented and the demo cratic leaders hope to develop har mony for the debate on amendments. 1 nterest centers in the powers of super vision to be executed by a federal re serve board over reserve banks. It is argued that the board entirely in go vernment control, a check on opera tions in reserve banks might be as sured. The administration hopes the provision for a note issue will not be changed. What’s the matter with LaFollette and our progressive congressmen*? We know some mighty good friends of La Follette, Frear, Lenroot & Cos., who would like to administer a few good kicks on their broadest part for their preverse carping criticism of the Underwood tariff bill. Who ever heard of a perfect tariff revision that pleased everylwdy? Out with this damned iteration of a scientitic revision of the , tariff. Such a thing is beyond the ken of human reason. Kick every obstruc tionist out of the way and let the Underwood bill pass. Any sort of highway robbery of railroad bandit method of throat cutting and pocket picking, in preference to the present Aldrich-Payne tariff system. If Len root and Frear think they are adding to their laurels by their recent re actionary talks, they don’t understand the people they are supposed to re present Mondovi Herald. Senator Isaac Stephenson last Wednesday quietly celebrated his eighty-fourth birthday at his home in Marinette. He spent the day attend ing to business matters at his office, and at his home on Riverside avenue a family dinner in honor of the event was attended by his children, their husbands, wives, and the grandchild ren. He found his office in the Stephen son Building tilled with flowers, tokens of remembrance sent by relatives and friends in the morning. In one vase were eighty-four red carnations, the senator’s favorite flower. He also re ceived letters and telegrams of con gratulation from friends around the state and Washington. From public and private buildings Hags were flown in honor of the sena tor’s birthday. In the evening citi zens headed by a brass band marched to his home and serenaded him. The senator still is in vigorous health. Bearing a personal plea for im mediate action by congress to revise the banking and currency laws, that business may be aided in meeting tariff revision, President Wilson for the second time went to the house of representatives yesterday and person ally read his address on the subject to both bouses of congress assembled in joint session. Although short of some of the novelty that attended ids first appear ance, when he upset presidential tra ditions of more than a century, ves ta rd ay's visit of the president to con gress took on a deeper significance. On his first visit he delivered a mes sage, long anticipated, urging the carrying out of the party's pledges for immediate revision of the tariff. Ills address yesterday was an appeal to every member of the house and senate to lay aside personal considera tions am' sacrifice comfort and even health if necessary to secure at once a revision and reform of the nation’s banking system. Only ir. that way, he declared, could the cot ntry secure the benefit of the tariff revision soon to be completed. “It is perfectly clear that it is our duty to supply the new banking and currency system the country needs, and that it will immediately need it more than ever,” said President Wil son. ••Shall we hasten to change our tariff laws and then be laggards about mf\lng it possible and easy for the country to take advantage of the change’? There can be only one answer to that question. We must act now, at whatever sacrifice to our selves.” Dvring the past w eek says a corres pondetof the Miilwakee Journal, Miss Margaret Wilson, eldest daughter of President and Mrs. Wilson, who si the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph E. Davies, has wet many of the univer sity and town folk. All who became acquainted with her have been impres sed by her modesty and frankness, her earnestness and intelligence. Those who konw her well say she resembles her father in the way of simple man ners and intellectuality. She is not omy greatly interested in sociology, including social center work, but she is a very sweet singer. Miss Wilson made a decided hit the other day with one young resident of Madison.

ROYALTY AT VARIETY SHOW King of Saxony Establishes Prece dent by Appearing in State, Ac < companied by Staff. The rivalry between Dresden and Leipsic, the two chief cities of the kingdom of Saxony, has existed for a long time. Dresden, the cour* or res idence town, and Leipsic, the busi ness center of the country, are less than 100 miles apart, and each place is ambitious to rank first in impor tance. "Every year,” writes a mem ber of the Leipsic English colony. ’ the king visits this city, and for the time of his visit the Leipsicer holds his head higher and feels that he is not In second rank. This year's visit lasted three days. The place was decorated for the occasion, and according to the reports King Fred eric August spent most of his time listening to the lectures of well known scientists. There can be no doubt as to his having gone to the lectures, but he went also—he is a democratic king—to a vaudeville show, not through a back door or dis guised, but in the imposing uniform of a general and surrounded by a large staff who wore full court dress.

By HAROLD CARTER. All through the hot forenoon Lieu tenant Richaras had fought like a leader of heroes, braving death a dozen times from the spiteful Fili pino bullets that hissed overhead; yej, though man after man had fallen in the thinning ranks, he was un scathed. And the more he sought death the harder it seemed to die. With a mere handful of the xseventy nine who had been cut off from the main forces by the cunningly con trived ambsucade, Richards had fal len back upon a hill, one of those smooth, isolated hills that emerge here and there in the northern region of Luzon. There, hard pressed, the little remnant of Squadron B were holding their own against the enemy’s marksmen, waiting for the arrival of the relief column from Santa Cata lina. It was strange how it seemed to Richards as he lay on his face in the blistering sunlight. His mind went traveling back to other scenes, other days—to that last day in Washington before he sailed away. He had sat all the cool afternoon with Lucy Greaves on the porch of the Club House. Lucy was an old neighbor, an old school fellow, a sweetheart of his boyhood, whom he uad met the week previously, after an absence r? years. And at the moment of that meeting each became aware that the love of old was no transient thing, but something that would endure as long as life, and perhaps longer, for all they knew. On that last afternoon, under the shade of the oaks, whose memory was so grateful in that hot, sun-dried land, he had asked her to be his wife, to wait for him. Then Lucy, whom he had never seen discomposed, broke down and sobbed in his arms. And as he listened to her answer he understood that life would | 1C <***' “At Two Hundred!” never mean anything to him again. She was engaged to a fellow soldier, whom she loved no longer. But the traditions of her family forbade her to break with him. Her word was pledged and she must abide by it. She w'ould love Richards forever, but she would marry— She did not tell him the name. But Richards hau imagined that it was some officer he knew. The memories vanished with the sudden cessation of the hissing above them. Richards knew what that meant. The enemy were preparing to charge. He sprang to his feet with a briskly uttered command. Under the hill a brown line was gathering, closing in, screaming with the fury generated by hemp and fanaticism. They came up ward, and, finding thaf the defenders made no reply, swooped in with a zest, flags flying, keen, razor-edged bolos flashing back the light of the declining sun. Next mor ent it was hand tc ’.and. For a full minute—hours, it seemed— the fighting was fierce thrust and yell, the swing of the bolo, the thud of the rifle on stock or Bkull, the cough of the lung-pierced man as he tumbled backward. Then the attackers were sullenly retiring and the besieged drew a little closer together. Richards stooped and raised a wounded man at his side. He knew him, Sergeant Hutton, one of the recruits. He was an educated man and working up to his commission from the ranks. Now he lay help less with a shattered ankle and shoul der blade. And Richards had es caped scot free. “Sergeant, I’m going to put you be hind this rock,” said the lieutenant. Hutton was fumbling at his throat. He opened the blood-stained tunic and disclosed a little locket of gold. “Open it,” he whispered. Richards obeyed and found himself looking into the face of Lucy Greaves. “She gave It to me,” the sergeant whisrtered. “We were to have been married the day’before I sailed. It was postponed at'the last moment, till I came back. If I die you'll carry my love to her?” Richards nodded. He could not trust himself to speak. His heart leaped e? at the thougbt that for his sake Lucy had waited, that, though honor forbade her to be faithless to Hutton, she had at least foqpd marriage im possible then. Now his duty was clear; at all cost he must save this man’s life, both for bis country’s sake and for the sake of hjnor. Lucy would not have had It ovherwise. Til tell her,” he said. "But you'll pull through, Sergeant. It's a bad wound in each place, but the ball has only shattered the bone Now lie still behind this rock and wait till the relief arrives. A wild yell burst forth from beneath the hill, re-echoed from 500 throata. The Filipinos were charging again. And this time they charged home. The defenders, reduced to less than twenty men. could not stop that reck less onslaught They drew together, striking out with clubbed rifles, sur- j rounded by a ring of savage, taunting | foes. There was no chance to load. As each rifle butt fell the fanatics rush*d in upon the wielder, slashing ! with their long knives, forcing the otb ers back, hemming them In. assailing them from every side. There was no , thought of quarter. Richards found j himself snapping jthe trigger of his empty revolver. He drew "his sword and ran alone into the heart of his foes, cutting them down, eluding their blows almost miraculously. When at lgst he stepped back, haring gained a little space, but six of his men ro- • mained unscathed. Suddenly, far down the valley, the clear notes of a bugle rang through the air. Then, over the stillness of the I afternoon came the faint sound of jangling bits. A cloud of dust was ris ing above the palms. The Filipinos, surrounding the last of their enemies, hesitated to rush forward to certain death, and, swinging his sword, Rich ards momentarily cowed the bravest of them. “Now, men,” he Bhouted above the tumult, “each of you take a wound ed man on his shoulder and retire down the trail. I’ll stay here and cov er you until you reach the road.” And, stepping behind the rock, he seized the rifle of the wounded sergeant, and, crouching over him, began pumping bullets into the ranks of the enemy Richards was now facing the sav ages alone. Poised between two gi gantic boulders, he could be reached by but one man at a time. Crack! went the rifle, and at each shot a man dropped. Now his men were hastening toward safety. Rich ards emptied his rifle into the retreat ing masses and then, catching up the wounded sergeant, crept down the hill. It was a whole minute before the na tives discovered that he was gone. They dared not follow him beyond the crest, for they feared the ven geance of those yelk-w-clad cavalry men now spurring toward the slope. But they lined the hill and began flr ing with their old antelope guns, so that the bullets hissed and sputtered round the lieutenant as he ran through the Jungle. Zip! A mass of fused telegraph wire cleft a tree at his side; now a spurt of dust rose at his side and another between his feet. “We’ll pull through. Sergeant!” he shouted cheerily to the man on his back, and stumbled onward. A yell from the ridge answered him and a renewed volleying. Twigs, cut from the trees by the hail of missiles, whirl ed past him as though driven hy oj. clonic force, bark flew from the palms, and the grass was alive as though with myriad insects. It seemed incredible that anyone could emerge alive out of that storm Then s-s-s! a red-hot wire seemed to be pressing against the lieutenant’s arm, and, looking down, Richards saw that the pale yellow of his coat was turning a bright claret color. At last the spell which had held him scathless so long seemed to be broken. Zip! That one nipped him across the cheek. Another missile carried away his hat and the cool breeze of the afternoon revived his strength mo mentarily. “A near thing that, ser geant!” he shouted. But the man on his back made no reply, and, as he raced forward, Richards felt his strength waning again. Gradually a delirium took possession of him. He looked back. He seemed to have been running for hours, and he was less than 200 yards from the crest of the hill. In front of him the relieving horsemen were lost to sight in the jungle. In fact, he was at the bottom of the bowl, and the huge ascending sides appeared unscalable. The sky, the earth, the trees spun round him. He seemed to be in Washington again, seated at Lucy’s side, under the oaks. Only the thought of her sustained him for a few yards more. Then, quite sud denly his legs crumpled beneath him and he reeled and fell forward. Out of the profundity he rose through a region peopled by spectres to consciousness of his surroundings. He was lying In a bed —a real bed with a spotless coverlet on spotless sheets, and a man in a white linen suit was bending over him. “Well!” he said, “you’re doing fa mously now. We’ll have you round In short order, C*ptaln.”" “Captain? I—” “Ah, you haven’t seen the Gazette. That was a special order of the presi dent’s. And they’re talking about the congressional medal for you. Now He ■till and don’t excite yourself, and don’t think about anything except that the troops pulled you out of a mighty ticklish situation Just as the natives were closing in on your body, son.” “But —Sergeant Hutton?” "Ah, poor fellow! I guess you’ll have to know, captain. You had been carrying a corpse from the first. He was hit by a bullet Just before you picked him up, and must have died lnstantlv.” (Copyright, 1913, by W. G.

PROVE CYCLES OF FASHION Argument That Has Long been Made Seems Substantiated by Excava tions in Crete. Announcement that the excavations in Crete for the University of Penn sylvania have brought to light frag ments of an ancient civilization which show that women of that island wore corsets and hobble-skirts 6,000 years ago is Interesting as a matter of archaeology; but It is nothing new. In fact, it has been developed long since that even in the classic times of Greece the graceful garment shown in statuary and painting was a con ventionality of art rather than a fash ion of the time. Woman, it seems, has ever delighted in styles that change with the seasons and with the years, but return again in cycles that appear to have had no beginning and to approach to no end. She and her clothing are the joint symbols of the truth that nothing is so immutable as mutability. It is questionable, however, wheth er the women or the youth of the world ever subordinated their own tastes to the whims and absurdities of foreign fashion makers. Was it ever the vogue in Crete to wear the styles of Babylon or of Thebes? As some bold hearts are striving in this coun try to develop an American fashion opposed to that of Paris, that is the question America#! archaeologists should strive to solve. Concluding that Cretan ruins bear witness to the j durability of the corset, may they not j also give encouragement to the hope ; that it was not always worn as a j straight front? Vutual Forbearance. When Margaret Wilson, daughter of the president, attended a legisla tive hearing in the assembly chamber at Albany, she was put on the high place where the speaker ordinarily sits. “Where is she? Show her to me,” said a political heeler, passing M close range. When Bhe had been pointed out he gazed at her steadily for about i three seconds and then, movtrg ca j briskly, said: “Oh, v: jll, she didn’t Bay anything to me; I guess I won’t say anything to her.” Why Pay More Than Real Suit Satisfaction Costs? You ask for and have a right to demand a definite measure of suit satisfaction when you’re buying clothes. Some men pay S3O, S4O or SSO for their clothes while others pay less. Both feel equally assured they have received complete suit satisfaction for their money. Perhaps you pay a fancy price for your clothes, thinking you can get better fabrics, more superior workmanship and better style. Or you may he buying clothes at a medium price and are perfectly satisfied w ith the clothes service you are getting. But no matter whether you are paying a high, medium or low price for your clothes, you need pay only NO MORE sl6 NO LESS for Real clothes satisfaction. We have been demonstrating this fact every day to an increasing number of men and young men from all three classes of clothing buyers. They are tirmlv con vinced that sl6 invested in our custom tailored clothes will buy equally as much and sometimes more in quality of fabric, materials, workman ship, style and tit. You need undertake no risk to acquaint yourself with the exceptional worth of our clothes—we guarantee tit, quality of fabric and style.
