The Central Wisconsin Press associ ation, an organization embracing newspaper editors and publishers and proprietors of job printing plants, in the counties of Cla.rk, Langlade, Lin coln, Marathon, Portage, Taylor and Wood and any contiguous territory that may tie determined upon in the future, was organized at Marshfield on P'riday. The purpose of the as sociation is to bring about a closer co operation between the printers of the district and to advance their social and financial interests. The idea of form ing a press associa tion was conceived several weeks ago, E. B. Barr, associate editor of the Marshfield Times, being its most ac tive advocate. That the plan met with favor is clear y demonstrated by the fact that thirty men eligible to membership attended the organiza tion meeting, while at least five oth ers have endorsed the move and have expressed a desire to join. An afternoon session was Held at the city hall, wher plans were tenta tively formulated, views exchanged and a committee was appointed to draw up a suitable set of resolutions. A banquet took place at Hotel Blod gett at 7 o'clock in the evening, when M. C. Douglas of the Dunn County News, Menomanie, gave a splendid talk on “Modernizing the Country Newspaper.” The committee on resolutions then reported and the as sociation was formally organized. The officers chosen are as follows: President—E. B. Harr, Marshfield Times. Vice-President— L. Williamson, Neillsvile Times. Secretary-Treasurer—B. E. Walters, Mosinee Times. President Barr appointed an ex ecutive council, consisting of one member from each county, as follows Henry Berner, Antigo Journal; C. E. Crothers, Neillsvilla Republican Press; W. A. Drumb, Grand Rapids Tribune; J. S. Voemestek, Bib Lake Herald: E. B. Thayer, Wausau Pilot; E. I). Glennoh, Stevens Point Gazette, and 11. G. Lee, Tomahawk Leader. Meetings of the association will be held thrice yearly—the annual meet ing on the third Friday of June and business meetings on the third Fri day in Octobe and the third Friday in February. It is planned to make the June meeting a semi-social-gath ering, to which members will be ex pected to bring their families. Marshfield extended a cordial in vitation to the visiting craftsmen, representing nineteen cities and vil lages, namely: Stevens Point, Neills ville, Withee, Dorchester, Mosinee, Grand Rapids, I’ittsville, Unity, Granton, Rib Lake, Antigo, Nekoosa, Greenwood, Colby, Vesper, Edgar, Marathon City, Loyal and Abbots ford. The city was theirs from the time they arrived until they departed and a fine spirit of enthusiasm pre vailed. That the new organization will be a permanent institution, work ing for better things; for central Wis consin as well as for its members is confidently expected Stevens Point Journal. COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCA TION. Notwithstanding the law is of no account and is only another scheme to enlarge the army of officeholders in Wisconsin, still there aie eleven candidates who are after a seat on the County Board of Education.

The super-dreadnaught Texas, the most powerful battleship afloat in the world today, was placed in com mission at Norfolk, Va.. March 12, arid has joined the Atlantic squadron. This monster of the sea is 573 feet in length, is propelled by engines of 35,000 horse power and draws 28 feet 6 inches. Her principal armament consists of ten fourteen incli guns and twenty-one five inch guns. The fourteen inch guns are the largest that have ever been placed on a bat tleship by any nation. The contract price of the vessel and machinery was $5,350,000, but with armament added the total cost was swelled by several millions. This monster addition to the Amer ican navy is commanded by Capt. Albert W. Grant, who was born and received his early education in Stev ens Point. He is a son of the late E. B. Grant and is a brother of Cros by H. Grant, now of Karinen, South Dakota, and Forest 11. Grant and Mrs. Martha Piker of Brooklyn, New York. He was appointed a cadet in the naval academy at Anapolis in 1871 or 1872 Stevens Point Journal. Capt. Grant is remembered by a number of old time friends in this city where he often visited, before leaving for Anapolis and since which time lie has risen to such distinction. The hope is tliat he will soon reach the honor of a Rear of the navy, a dignity further due his ability. QUAINT INDIAN FINDS. The Wisconsin Archaelogical so ciety is preparing for publication un der the title of “Aboriginal Evidence in the Northwest Wisconsin” a re port of the explorations conducted by three separate field parties during the year 1812, in the several counties occupying the northwestern corner of the state. Antiquities to be described in this new publication include num erous groups of Indian earthworks, the sites of former camps and villages with their planting grounds and cem eteries, the locations of early struggles between the resident Dakota or Sioux and their conquerors, the invading Ojibwa, pipeshone quarries, shrines, trails and other indications of prehis toric and historic aboriginal occupa tion. These are located in the coun ties of St. Croix, Chippewa, Polk, Barren, Sawyer, Washburn, Burnett and Douglas. Among the mound groups surveyed by the society’s field parties the most extensive are located on the shore of Rice Lake, in Rusk county and between Osceola and St. Croix Falls, in Polk county.

New Granite Works at Wausau Now in Model Plant; Insures Efficiency in Handling Huge Stone Blocks Wausau, Wis., March 7.—The new granite working plant of the Ander son Bros & Johnson Cos., which re cently moved from Granite Heights to Wausau, is now practically com plete and in full operation. It is per haps the best equipped plant of its kind in tiie country. The building is of brick and steel construction, well lighted and meas ures 60x300 feet. It was completed just as the first cold weather of the winter set in. During the night of Nov. 7 a heavy wind, which did dam age in different parts of the state, destroyed the entire north end wall of the building and a section of the roof. Although the failure of the wall was not due to any fault of con struction, the Coddington Engineer ing company of Milwaukee, who had the contract, telegraphed their w ill ingness to repair the damage, and ten days later the building was again complete, an extra steel truss being placed in both end wails to safeguard against any recurrence of the acci dent. The north and south doors of the building are large enough to admit freight cars and a railroad sidetrack runs through the entire length of the building and out into the yard at the north end. A ten ton electric travel ing crane serves for loading and un loading c?<s and handling the rock in the three different rooms into which the building is divided by low parti tions. The granite enters the building at the south end. being unloaded from the cars in the roughing room. Here the blocks are cut approximately to size by three roughing machines.

SEED TRAIN. j The culmination of the events surrounding the visit of the seed train last Tuesday was the meeting at the city hall in the evening. The i meeting was very well attended by the farmers but not to any extent by the business men of our city. It was very successful however in imparting valuable information to the farmers. 11. F. Flieth of the National Ger-j man imerican bank presided and rc- i marks were made by Mayor It ingle l and H. F, Krueger of Beaver Dam Earl Pease of Grand Rapids: 11. A Plum' of Milwaukee; A. J.

The work is done by hand and requires skilled and experienced workmen. Stones which are to be polished are taken from tlie cutting room to the polish ing room, where seven machines of ditferent sizes are installed. These pol shing machines consist simply of a long arm swinging hori zontally in a circle and jointed at the middle very much like a human aim. At the free ond of this arm is a. ver tical shaft cirrying at its lower end a disc built up of heavy iron bars or of a number of concentric iron rings, as the case may lie. These horizontally revolving discs or plates are called the grinding or polishing lings. The granite blocks are bedded around the machine so that the faces to be polished form a level, even sur face like a table top. Openings be tween the rocks are filled in with plaster of Paris so that the surface of the rocks can he kept Hooded with water. The grinding ring at the end of the swinging arm. is now brought down flat onto the stone surface. As the ring revolves the operator slices it back and forth over the surface and throws into it small steel shot which grind away the high spats on the stones. A wooden retaining wall, about six inches hip 1. placed around the edges of the bed, keeps the ‘slush” —the mixture of water, shot and ground stone—from spattering. When a fairly smooth surface is obtained, a polishing ring is put on the machine and the grinding process continued. Finally the steel shot is replaced Ben Ileinemanr. is setting up the cigars because of the arrival of a boy at his home. Tiie storage capacity of the Wausau booms is 30,000,000 feet.

A buffeting ring, with a soft lel-like substance, completes the operation, producing the tine glassy finish of the polished granite block. It was formerly the practice to have one bed of rock for each polishing machine, the herds measuring about five feet wide and ten or fifteen feet long. In tiiis new plant the machines are so arranged that a bed can be placed on each side of the machine. This effects a great saving in the machine operator’s time as the bed on one side can now he polished while a helper sets the bed on the opposite side. Tire excellent layout, of the buildings keeps the material moving always in one direction, thus avoiding confusion. The rough rock is taken in at the south end of the building either directly from the cars or from the stock kept in the yard and is sent through the roughing room, the cut ting room, and the polishing room, emerging at the north end of the building a finished product. ■ Electric power is used throughout, six motors being installed at present. One 75-borsepower motor drives a jompound air compressor, which fur nishes air at 100 pounds pressure for operating the automatic chisels and air tools used in the cutting depart ment, and for running the roughing machines.
