Last Saturday morning, at 5:45
o’clock, March 28th, 1914, Mrs. Flor
ence E. Landfair departed this life
after an illness of eight weeks. Pre
vious to that time she had been
vigorous in mind and ixxly and all
were happy in the thought that indi
cations were so favorable of her life
being spared to them indefinitely.
Iler illness baffled the best medical
experts and there was a gradual les
j sening of vital energy and at ast the
hope of those who had watched and
cared for her so lovingly, gave way to
despair, for they realized that disso
lution was but a question o: a few
hours at best. Deceased bad been
hopeful and cheerful throughout and
borne her illness with wonderful
patience and fortitude, looking to the
happiness of those about her, which
had ever been so characteristic of her
life, and which made her so beloved
by those who knew her.
Florence E. Landfair, fourth child
of Ira Winslow and Almira Hitchcock,
was born at Michias, Cattarangus
county, N. Y., March 10th, 1850. Her
parents moved to Leslie, Ingham
county, Mich., when she was fifteen
yea,rs of age. She was married to
Capt. John A. Landfair, March 23d,
1870, at Leslie and they resided there
until Oct. 6th, 1908, when they came
to Wausau to make their home with
their only child and daughter, Mrs.
M. B. Rosenberry. Capt. Landfair
died in this city on the 21st day of
Sept., 1909.
The funeral services were conducted
from the home at 511 Franklin street,
at three o'clock Sunday afternoon,

church, officiating. Interment was in
Pine Grove cemetery.
The following were the pal! bearers:
B. F. Wilson, C. C. Yawkey, L. A.

had partially recovered he took a posi
tion in the accounting department of
the Wausau Telephone company. His
health would not, permit his continu

The game of basket ball scheduled
at Appleton on Wednesday evening
between Wausau and Racine high
schools was called off at the last min
ute because Racine refused to play.
Racine won a place in the tenth an
nual interscholastic tournament to be
opened in Appleton Thursday after
noon under the auspices of Lawrence
Wausau was not allowed to enter
the northeastern District elimination
contest at Oshkosh last week on •
grounds tin t the records of the term
for the season had not been filed with
the Oshkosh authorities.
Racine’s unwillingness to meet the
northerners Wednesday evening re
turns the playing program to its
original schedule with the following
eight teams: Appleton, Racine, Osh
kosh, Fond du Lac, Menominee,
Cumberland. Tom ah and Janesville.
Coach Wolf and Principal Painter
of our high school, went down to see
the officials relative to the Wausau
team’s chances of getting into the
met. Both stating that records had
been sent regularly to Mr. Manches
ter of the Oshkosh normal. It was
finally decided to allow Wausau to
enter the contest by playing one of
the eight winning teams. The teams
agreed to this and by drawing lots it
fell to Racine Ui meet the Wausau
combination. The Wausau team
journeyed to Appleton, the city
selected in which the teams were to
play, but it seems the Racine boys
were afflicted with cold feet <*nd re
fused to carry out its part of the pro
gram and the game was not played.

Mrs. C. M. Fairchild, after an illness
of several weeks passed to her eternal
rest on Monday morning at 5 o’clock,
at the home of her daughter, Mrs.
Newman Beilis, at 727 Molndoe street.
Mrs. Fairchild has been in poor health
for a long time and had been with her
daughter the greater part of the past
five years. Her gentle ways and loving
disposition won for her many friends
during her brief life in Wausau.
Mrs. Fairchild was born on the 9th
day of August, 184<>, in the st ate of
Vermont. She was united in irmrriage
to Charles M. Fairchild at Portage,
Wis., January 15th, 1873. For many
years they resided in Marinette. Wis.,
and later in Chicago. In the former
city three children were born to them
viz: Mrs. Newman H. Beilis and Mrs.
Colwert G. Pier of this city, and
Willard Fairchild of New York City,
all of whom, together with her
husband, survive to mourn her death.
Mr. Fairchild arrived in Wausau
this morning from Chicago, and
Willard Fairchild will reach here this
evening. Brief services w:!' be held
from the home Wednesday morning,
Rev. James M. Duer, officiating, pre
vious to the departure at 7 a. m., for
Marinette, where interment will take
place on the family lot in the ceme
tery of that city.
Mrs. M. Garrovv of Packwaukee,
Wis., sister of deceased arrived here
Monday morning. She also leaves a
brother, W. N. Cook of the state of
The Ladies’ Literary club of this
city is on the eve of inaugurating a
“Clean up Paint up Campaign’’ here.
It has been promised the co-dpfcra
tion of the mayor and city council,
the Advancement association, Men’s
club, Merchants’ association, Y. M.
C. A., city schools. Big Sister club,
the newspapers, and, in short, organi
zations of every kind.
In May, 1912, Allen W. Clark, pub
lisher of a trade paper in St. Louis,
Mo., first thought of the idea of hav
ing a “National Clean tip Paint up
Campaigr.” It was tried out and
proved an immediate success, and lias
now grown into a really National
Movement, with Headquarters at St.
The idea is to have every city and
town set aside one week for a general
public and private clean up and paint
up, to establish the five-word slogan
ever> where, and create in the public
mind a spirit of enthusiasm and a
sense of intelligent co-operation; to
enlist the entire co-operation of the
town or city authorities in all de
partments, in fact, everybody, old
and young, to he asked to lend i hand
to clean up property, indoors ard out,
during clean up paint up week a.nd
The clean up paint up movement
was conducted very successfully in
1913 in the cities of St. Louis, Denver,
Buffalo, Baltimore and 870 other
In these places enthusiastic cam
paigns were carried on (hat resulted
in tons of rubbish and waste matter
being carted away to the dump,
hundreds of dull and grimy bu ldings
being brightened up with a <coat of
paint, and many lawns aid yards be
ing trimmed up, flower oeds put in,
and neighborhoods beautiftfed.
This is indeed a movement for
homes and towns beautiful, and to
promote cleanliness, thrift and civic
pride, and should appeal to every
public-spirited citizen.
A public meeting will be called in
the near future to perfect an organi
zation, elect officers, appoint commit
tees, etc.
Now is the time for owners of auto
mobiles to get together s.nd insist .up
on the observance of our city and
state laws. Only Saturday an auto
was seen on Fifth street running at
the rate of fully forty miles art hour,
the young driver tooting his horn in
a manner that said plainly “get out
of the way, or I will run you down,”
and the old and young hesitated not
but in a dignified or otherwise man
ner made quick steps ty some place
of safety. This is all wrong to thus
impose upon our citizens. It is the
heedless driver whoshou and be made an
example of and all autoisls should
lend their help to bring about an
observance of the law relative to
fast driving.
