The Scouts, of which Karl M&thie is scoutmaster, went to Mosinee Sat urday, leaving here early iq the morn ing in automobiles and out to the Dessert logging camps eight miles from Mosinee. They were ac companied by several other boys not in the class and went out in the auto mobiles of M. B. Rosen, >erry, Karl Mathie and Mark Beilis, driven by those named. The boys in the party were: Gale Meyer, Chas. Manson, Spencer Graves, Victor Geiser, Roy Rodehover, Chas. Corwith, Edward Thayer, Fred Mormon, Reuben Rich ards, John Riordan and Sam Boseti berry. Tiiey all took dinner at the cooking camp and all say “it was one of the best we ever had.” They saw the large sleighs loaded and saw them hauled i.ito Mosinee over the ice road by the large steam hauler, there being a train of eight sleighs each piled high with logs.

Qwr Cermeniß Her* \am* Repmtotiom Bmktnd Them Wa usa uM3k Pilot. address at the opera HOUSE. ; W. J. H. Boeteker to Talk Upon tl Labor Problem on the Evening of March 23d. “I c.o trust the people who know the truth, but I fear the people who do not know the truth and who some times don’t want to know.” “I cc trust the people who think with nheir brains, but I am afraid of the people who think with their stomachs.” “I have confidence in the people when sober with reason, but 1 fear the people when a mob—drunk with passion.” “I do trust the people whose God is the Lord, for their voice is indeed the voice of God, bat lam afraid of the people whose God is the belly.” So says Wm. J. H. Boeteker of Toledo, Ohio, who will talk to the people of this city on “The Only Possible Solution of the Labor Prob lem and the High Cost of Living,” on March 23rd, 8:15 P. M. at the Grand Opera House. Tickets for admittance may be secured at the Y. 51. C. \. or the local factory superintendents. Dr. Boeteker comes with nattering recommendations and many local citi zens have heard him lecture and they recall that he lias unusual oratorical ability and ins utterances are pointed, philosophical, epigrammatic and more than everything else, so force fully presented that his audiences believe in him and his cause. Dr. Boeteker comes under the auspices of tiie National Inside association of America, an organization formed by him and which now has a member ship of thousands of patriotic citi zens. This oddly named association believes that when the people learn the “inside” they will know that economic ills will be cured from the inside rather than the outside. In explanation of the “Inside” association propaganda, Dr. Boeteker says: “A number of years ago I visited Egypt. One morning nine travel ers started to visit the pyramids, those relics of Egyptian civilization. We all took pictures of the same thing at the same time. Whe** we returned to America we developed our plates and comparing notes, found that all nine had different pictures of tiie same thing. Four of tiie men had placed their cameras so close that their pictures showed but one side of the pyramid, yet each of the four claimed that, his picture represented the pyramid. None ever thought of stating that it was but one side, and that there were three other sides which the picture did not show. Four of tiie gentlemen had placed their cameras at a longer range and their pictures showed two sides of the pyramid. I myself, had been at the top of tiie pyramid and had taken my picture looking down, from where I saw four sides. “While I stood them and looked at these four sides tiie thought came to me that there must be another side to tiie pyramid, I went down and looked at the inside, and when I saw how massive the pyramid had been constructed from within, I realized that it was in fact the inside which upholds the outside. “When confronted with one of the conflicting problems and apparently contradictory views or our time, I can but think of this pyramid witli its four outsides and one inside. I see the employers and business men looking at the financial side. I see the workingmen on labor’s side. I see attorneys and legislators on the legal side, and cons a me/s on the fourth side. “While we are talking about, ask ing for, and ever ready to promise a square deal, let us not forget that there are four sides to a square, three sides besides your own, and then don't forget the inside or moral side, which upholds the outside. “You cannot cure tlie inside from the outside, but you can cure the outside from the inside.” DEATH OF MOTHER AND SISTER The many friends of Miss Lutie E. Stearns, in this city, will be pained to learn of the death ol! her sister and mother. The former passed away on Saturday, March 7th, and the latter on Tuesday, March 10th, at the home of Miss Stearns in Milwaukee.

Last Friday afternoon the Wausau high school basketball team wer to Wittenburg, there to play an el imi nation game witli a team from Birnamwood, Shawano County, Wis. Because of a dispute between Wau sau and the Lawrence atheletic directors in regard to the local team entering tiie State preliminary ga.me held at Oshkosh last week and in which Wausau was not allowed to participate, it was decreed that the red and white would have to play an elimination gaane with Birnamwood, which also contested its right of entrance to these preliminaries. Wittenburg was selected as tiie place to stage the game and following a medicine show which lasted until 9:30, the contest which proved to be nothing but a runaway, was pulled off. The dispute in regard to Wau sau’s entering at Oshkosh, seems to have arisen over the fact that Wau sau made a mistake in sending its record of the past season to Oshkosh instead of to Appleton. The local players were in splendid form, but because of the fact that Birnamwood was lighter and nowhere near as well trained in the details of the game there was not much need of any strenuous exertion on their part. The team worked splendidly together and play after play went through perfectly. The Birnamwood players did not seem to have much knowledge of the inside paints of the game or if they did, they did not put them into practise. They resembled the Toma hawk team in that they played under our basket and did not seem to be able to get near their own, but on the whole their work was not as good as our northern neighbors. Possibly some of Birnamwood's playing can be accredited to tlie fact that they were scared because of Wausau’s past record. Every local player made his ! share of baskets and there was no one player who stood out above all j the rest. Wausau has been playing a very consistent, steady, game and ; with the team working together the \ way it is there will be some pretty hard contests before the high school j willl give up its chance for the state | tournament. During the first half of the game, Wausau was credited with twenty- 81 * scores or thirteen baskets to Birnamwood’s one free throw. The second half was nothing more ' or less than .1 runaway. The boys j started right from the beginning and ! the baskets were made one after the ! other. And even with the thirty-five ' points totaled during the half, hard ; luck was encountered. Had every play worked, fifty scores would have easily been made. BirnamwooJ did ■ not play altogether in good luck there were times when they had nard luck in misjudging a basket or in missing the ball. The opponents of the Red and White were able to secure two free throws, this giving them three points and tnen the lone field basket made a total cf five points. The players on both teams seemed to be perfectly satisfied with the floor. The Wausau five had made prepa rations for playing on a slippery floor as they had no desire to encounter a team on suck a floor without any thing on theii feet to prevent s',ip ping as happened at Marshfield. The final score of the game was sixty-one to five. It is remarkable to us how Bi.rw.m wood defeated Antigo, and how they claimed that they had a right to en ter the .Oshkosh preliminaries, hol lowing is a summary of the game : Wausau.

Mrs. Lamphier was greatly startled one evening last week to hear a pistol shot and immediately the glass in her bed room window was shattered and the bullet buried itself in the wall just over the bed. She im mediately started out to ascertain the cause but no one was in sight. The guilty person may well congrat ulate himself that no one was hurt. The break at Otter Rapids dam, in which there was a head of seven feet of water, raised the water at St. Germain bottoms about four feet; about four feet at Grandfather and two feet at Wausau. It will cost about $.500 to repair it. One day last w eek considerable ex citement was occasioned at the school house by the discovery of an attempt to burn the school building by some miscreant. He carried an arm ful of shavings under the stairway to the basement and piled a number of pieces of old desks which were lying near, upon them. The shavings were tired but as luck would have it, they burned out without setting fire to the rubbish. The attempt was made in broad day light and w'hile the building was tilled with children. No trace of the would-be fire bug can be found. Field baskets—Wausau, Pope, 3; Pond; 5; Eggebrecht, 7; Mohr, 8: Riebe, 4; Crandall, 3. Birnamwood, Rochke, 1. Free throws—Birnam wood, 3; Wausau, 1. Referee. Catlin. Accompanying the team there were a number of .Wausau teachers, among whom were the following: Messrs. Wolf, Goodrich and Burrow.s, and the Misses Morey, Withington, Bussard and Miller. There were also a large number of students, too many to mention. A good time vvao enjoyed by all those that accompanied the team. The referee of the game was Mr. Catlin of Appleton, whg is coach of the Lawrence college football team which has won the state champion ship lor ohe past three years. BASKET BALL. In the high school basketball pre i lirninuries at Oshkosh, last Thursday I and Friday, Oshkosh secured first ! place; ” >*d du Lac second place, and i Appleton beating Marshfield, which j was the representative of this dis ! trict, was given third place. These : three teams will go to the state basketball tournament on the 26th, i 27th and 28th of this month, where , with a number of other teams, they i will contest for the state high school ; basketball championship. Although ! it is not definitely known, it is entirely ! probaole that the local high team will also he able to participate in this ; tournament. This w ill he held at Appleton under the auspices of Law ! rence college. WELL LIGHTED.
