The Fact Remains
No amount of misrepresentation by the
peddlers of alum baking powders, no jug
gling with chemicals, or pretended analysis,
or cooked-up certificates, or falsehoods of
any kind, can change the fact that
Royal Baking Powder
has been found by the offi
cial examinations to be of the
highest leavening efficiency,
free from alum, and of absolute
purity and wholesomeness.
Royal Baking Powder is indispensable
for making finest and most economical food.
O! A truly sovereign state
All that’s good and wise and great
Every day or two I read
How her laws and customs lead,
Heaven must be like, indeed,
Education is the rage
People a!l are smart and sage,
Every newsboy that you see
Has a ’varsity degree,
Every cook's a Ph. 1).,
Trusts and bosses never mix,
O! the lovely politics.
Though the railroads boost the rate
High in every other state.
They are famously sedate,
Matrimony cannot fail,
babies all are strong and hale,
That's the state of married bliss
You have read about ere this,
None but gods may coo and kiss,
People never lock their doors,
No one hardly ever snores,
Ivy drapes each prison wall,
And the jails no more appall,
They are social centers all,
O’, the state of states for me
There’s the place w here I would be,
I would hasten to her shore,
With a glad and grateful roar.
Only lowa needs me more,

PRESS C LUB FORMED
Craftsmen Band Together Fc-r Mutual
Advancement at Marshfield Friday.
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
Vice-President— L. Williamson,
Secretary-Treasurer—B. E. Walters,
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

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
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

crane then takes the blocks into tlie
cutting room where all the carving
and fancy cutting is done. 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

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.

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.
