Bruneau, a highly respected citizen who answered the final summons at tier home in this city at an early hour Thursday morning, July 31, 191£. Mrs. Bruneau was a semi-invalid for about four years and her sudden deatli was a.i unexpected and a stunning blow to her children and friends. The deceased was a native of Aber deen, Scotland, being born there Jan uary 11, 1829. She was twice mar ried, her first husband being William Gilbert who came to this country from Scotland in the early fifties and to Mosinee in 1860, and by whom she had three children—Wm. C. Gilbert of Grand Rapids, Minn., Charles S. Gilbert and Mrs. Helen Van Vechten of this city, who survive her. Mr. Gilbert died in 1870 and some years later she married J. R. Bruneau, of Mosinee, a resident merchant of that village for a number of years. In 1879 Mr. and Mrs. Bruneau moved to Wausau from Mosinee where he served four terms as county treasurer. Mrs. Bruneau was a woman greatly beloved and respected by her family and friends. Friendships formed in pioneer days were most dear to her, and she enjoyed thoroughly to he w ith a party of congenial companions: she was a kind friend and neighbor and seemed to live for her family and friends. Mrs. Bruneau was identified willi the First Presbyterian church of this city and was an active and ardant member of that denomination in futhering Hie work of the church as long as her strength permitted. The obsequies were held Sat urday morning at 10:30 o’clock at the home on Grant street, pastor of the Presby terian church, officiating. The remains were laid to rest in tiie family lot in Pine Grove cemetery, tlie pallbearers being as follows: W. F. Collins. F. P. Stone. S. M. Quaw, H. G. Flieth, W alter Alexander and James Mont gomery. Relatives and friends of the family who were in attendance at the fun eral: W r . C. Gilbert of Grand Rapids, Minn.: Mr. and Mrs. W. VV. Mitchell of Stevens Point; Peter Mitchell of Bancroft, W T is., and Robert Freeman of the town of Emmet. EMPLOYES MEET. Upwards of one hundred and fifty employees of the Wisconsin River Valley division of the Chicago, Mil waukee & St. i'aul R. R., met in Wausau last Sunday to elect their second, “Safety First'* committee which will hold office during the re mainder of tiie year 1913.

All railroad men in at tendance at tiie meeting Sunday were very enthusiastic over tiie progress of this plan up to date. Tiie hundred-shot match which the Wausau Sharpshooters will pull off tiie last Sunday of this month promis es to he well attended by crack shots, from different parts of tlie United States.

Sunday afternoon the big game of the base ball season occurred, when the County Men were trimmed by the fearful score of 30 to 18 'jy the City Officials. But no, the score alone can not convey to the minds of our readers who did not see tiie game and a fair impression of it. It was big fun, for the players as well as the spectators. To see some of those poor county and city former base ball stars try the come hack stunt was great and we'll he darned if some of them didn’t pull the stunt. Tiie game was full of unchecked excitement and fun as is shown by tiie many errors (not meant as an error credited by a professional base ball scorer.) Clerk of Courts K. A. Beyreis was left with out an eye and had to quit tiie na tional game but he as leader, put a substitute in his place and the game proceeded upon action taken by Carl Adams. The pitching box was made a constant changing wonder. There were putting in and taking outs galore for no one could come back at tiie old job. Dr. Frawley, county coroner, was a sight to behold after the game and we would have given a good many silver dollars to have had a good painter present at the critical moment to have painted the doctor for a frame, with the painting inside would positively have been beautiful in tiie doctors’ home. The players found an umpire in Herbert Deters who seemed to enjoy the game as m uch as t iie best of them and yet did not ex exclude any person who used slang language from the field. RELIABILITY TOUR POSTPONED The Sentinel Reliability tour has been postponed one week from origi nal dates to accommodate a large number of dealers who would be un able to participate on the original dates. This will bring the tourtiirougii here on Tuesday, August 20th, and Harry Apple, secretary of the State Automobile Association, has confid ence that tiie entry list will be the largest in tiie history of the tour, and it will serve to introduce the new 1914 models, which would not other wise be seen by state motorists until the Milwaukee Automobile Show. At the present time, tiie Reo, Ford, Studebaker, Mitchell, R. C. 11., Mich igan and Buick are assured entries and there are not less than seventeen other prospective dealers scheduled for participation. In addition to a large number of Milwaukee dealers who have already signified their intention of entering cars in tiie dealers’ contest, there has been an unusual interest shown by dealers throughout tiie state and it is now believed, that the entry list from state dealers may be almost as large as tiie entries received from local sources. The Scliandein trophy event for private owners also promises to be more strenously contested for than here before. Besides the entries who have participated in tiie previous years, a number of oilier ambitious private owners have decided to make an ef fort to secure tiie handsome trophy. “Tiie 1913 Wisconsin State Automo bile Reliability tour premisses to be tiie most hotly contested event of this kind ever held in tiie state,” said H. A. Apple. “Not only will practically all of the dealers who have entered in previous years be entered, but from tiie inquiries we have received, I look for t lie largest and classiest entry list in tiie history of the big event. 1 ac companied tiie pathfinding car on most of tiie trips around tinstate and 1 feel that tiie route laid out by Path finder M. C. Moore is one of tiie best we could have arranged. Any auto mobile that makes this trip with a good showing will demonstrate l>e vond a doubt that it is a car of un usual merit and one that is adapted to peculiar Wisconsin road condi tions.” RASE BALL NOTES. During tiie past week the hoys have shown a great decided improvement in their work fielding as well as batting. On almost every day during tiie past week Landgraf’s hopes showed that when they are in trim they are hardly beatable. Landgraf lias gone about tiie rebuilding of the lumberjack squad in quite a business way, having already secured tiie ser vices of several valuable new men. McDermit, one of the Oshkosh in fielders. lias been secured by a trade. VVilliams, the bolted lumberjack In dian outfielder, has been traded to tiie Indians and is certainly going just where he belongs. Mique Malloy, former manager (in the old days) took a south bound train last Friday and left town. There was quite a bit of trouble at Rockford tiie other day and as a re sult several gam' > were cancelled. The dispute ended successfully and playing has been resumed. The Rockford fans were not pleased by this much as there was, as a result, some financial loss. Following is a notice in regard to the financial condition and what is being done to keep the Appleton club in the field: Appleton will continue to be a member of the Wisconsin-Illinois baseball league. At a meeting of the Commercial club of this city it was decided to come to the aid of tiie team and a novel idea was adopted for raising funds. All places of busi ness will be closed on Aug. 15, the day the team returns. No tickets to the game will he sold, but it is ex pected to have a basket at the gate, TTito which the “sans” can drop as much as they feel inclined. The idea, it is thought, will appeal to the people. The Pilot thinks that our team ought tone given a big day at the last to aid in raising funds so that at tiie start of the season next year there will not be and woeful lot of financial cares to bother the officials. The Appleton boys certainly have thought of a good way to get the coin and let's hope that all of the clubs in the league do as much to keep their aggregations in the field. It takes a lot of money, people, and a good spirit to run a baseball team suc cessfully and we don’t think that, often enough, baseball fans as a whole, do not appreciate tiie work and worry which officers of a club in poor finan cial straits endure while they hold office. Following is the percentage of th 6 clubs in the VVis.-IU. league. VV. L.
