The climate is one of the healthiest in the United States, the water is the purest and the sunshine the brightest. Good farm lands can still be purchased at from $lO to $20.00 an acre and up. The county is famous for its grains, grasses, vege tables, stock, milk products, etc. Its lands are more productive and more reason able in price than in any other communi ties with the same advantages. It has over 60,000 population and land still unsold to support 100,000 human beings. The people are of many nationalities, nearly all speak the English language and there is a general feeling of good will and fellowship throughout the county. This is the best field for the homeseeker— offering the best opportunities for people of moderate means. _ G. D. JONES LAND CO.

The August tenuis league ended last Saturday, and those who were entered but who had not played all tluir games up to that time were un able to finish. Rev. Briggs p ayed every entrant, winning every series except one, leaving him eight we n to the single series lost. Ills final per centage was . Fred Genrich cap tured second place, lie having won seven series and lost one. Oscar Wehrley had tied Genrich but on playing two sets to decide who vouid have second place Genrich wor 6-0, 6-1. The tournament which lasted nearly three weeks was very success ful, the participants enjoying the exercise and also acquiring knowledge in how to play by noting their oppo nent's method of playing. Most of the matches played were comparatively close. This week another tournament, tennis of course, is on. To the partic ipants of w liom there are eight. This tournament though, is of more im portance than the one of last week, because it decides who is the Y. M. C. A. champion and also for anather reason, mainly because there is a nice racquet at stake. Each and every entrant is looking forward to down the other man even though there is no chance for him to get the racquet. According to tlie looks of things there are several who give us the impression of up-runners for the championship. They are Arthur Kiefer, Fred Gen rich. Oscar Wehrley and Karl Schmidt. Preparations for good hard work to make the 1914-1945 season at tiu Y a big success in the Boys’ department. The loss of E. \V. Brandenburg will cause a big vacancy and it will stem very strange not to see “Brandy’ around. But W. li. Boorman is mak ing plans that include the high school fellows and from appearances ard the drifting of conversation we think that “Borky" is going to be backed up all right. He lias already written requesting that a number of the boys do their best to help get started and to make the coming year a successful one. Mr. Boorman will arriv< hers the twenty-eighth of this month and from then on will begiu to organize and perfect- his plans. Summer Coughs Are Danger* us. Summer colds are dangerous.

The water fell in torrents, leaving the lawns and streets very much over flooded for a short time. Accompany ing the rain storm was thunder and lightning. The rain itself, though, did practically no damage but, in stead, was beneficial, for even the ,rains of the few days previous had not been sufficient to give the lawns and crops all they really needed. The Hammoud home, formally the H. H. Manson residence, was struck by lightning at o’clock in the morning. No lire was caused, very luckily, but the iron on the outsideot the chimney was melted entirely. Five or six bad leaks in the roof were also caused by it. It was not dis covered that the residence had been struck until a little bit latter. A great deal of water poured in thru the holes in the roof but as the house had not been completely settled on account of the Hammonds recently moving in, very little damage was done on the inside. The lower floors of a number of downtown buildings were flooded on the morning of the rainfall. This was caused by the backing up of the water in the sewers, they not being sufficiently large to hold the flow v inch came from the streets. PLUM LAKE GOLF LINKS. The golf links on Plum lake are commencing to attract attention. These grounds were commenced sev eral years ago, much interest being taken by Chicago men who have sum mer homes on that lake. The first year a forty acre tract a little distance from the lake was cleared up and put into the links. This year the land between the lake and grounds was cleared up and added and the club house moved down to the lake. No pains are being spared to make the grounds among the best in the country. A most interesting contest took place on the grounds the past week for the president’s cup. It was en tered by all players on the lakes who belong to the club and among them C. B. Bird and son George, of this city, who, with the other members of the family are now enjoying their summer outing at their cottage on Plum. Mr. Bird was successful in winning the cup but his son was a very close second in the contest. REV. WEST’S CLASS CAMPING. J?.ev. Donald S. West took a large class of Boy Scouts camping a week ago yesterday. The boys walked out to the proposed camping grounds, having their tents and supplies taken over there. The camping site was located some four miles from the city, in Dead Man’s slough on the Eau Claire riv_. From the name, Dead Man’s slough, one would naturally think it incredulous that Rev. West would take his scouts there but never theless the site is not all that the name would imply. The boys re turned last Friday morning. The following were in the camping party : Hex Munger, Earl Ruth, Arthur and Walter Sparr, E. and C. Fry at t, Arnold Krieger, Norman and Harold Birkholz, Wm. Kaston, Adolf Graebel, Fred Eggers, Raymon Neuman, Chas. West, Louis Pophal, Alfred ana Max Burow, Harold Weigand, Arden Nel son and Arthur Reichart. The boys had a tine time. WAU PA TAW CLUB. Anew pleasure club has been formed in the city and it is called the Wau-Pa-Taw club. It is now com posed of about twenty representative young men of our city. Last week the club purchased of the Crocker- Thayer Land Cos., a piece of ground on the banks of the Wisconsin river, opposite Jim Moore creek*. On this the members have already started to build a club house. They will also erect a boat house in which to place canoes and motor boats. The grounds are to be improved, tennis courts ar ranged and altogether it will be one of the delightful places of our city. HOWT TWJS?

EDGAR ITEMS. Edgar News. A terrible hail storm broke over the country south of Edgar on Tuesday night. Hail stones the size of lien’s eggs and even larger struck the farms of Geo. Platefield in town of Cassel, and John Eggebrecht and John Osten in the town or Frankfort. One stone, size of a hen’s egg broke through the window in Mr. Osten’s house, striking the floor, bounding against the wall on the opposite side of the room, making a large liole in the plaster. A calf of Mr. Eggebrecht’s was knocked down and pounded to death by the hail. The homes of Mr. Jacob Dix and Geo. Patefield were battered to the ground. We under stand that taking the damage of buildings and crops, that the loss will figure up in the thousands of dollars.

Briggs of this city, and a young ady who has often visited in Wausau, has just written a very in teresting letter from Paris, where she is at present, and ♦’he same was published in her home paper, “The Manitowoc Herald.” Among other things she said of the situation: “Paris is in a turmoil of excitement; the streets are thronged with people; “extras” are being cried and groups of people are discussing the war news. We don't know what the American papers will say about it or how really serious it is. In any event, do not be alarmed about us—if war is declared we will be in Spain before you can say ‘Jack Robinson.’ We can get from Paris into Spain in twelve hours and our passage home is guaranteed. * * * When we were in Scotland we read of the murder of the Arch duke of Austria, lamented over the fact and forgot it. In London there was so much excitement because of the suffragettes that it took all our attention. We did not hear another thing about war until we got down to Amiens and then we heard that the Austrians had demanded a re prisal which was refused. From then on the rumors came thick and fast. Austria declared war; Russia objected; the murder of 2000 Jews in St. Peters burg; England excited; now Paris is talking about the German Einperor marching upon the city; Belgrade was utterly destroyed. The armies are being mobilized and French troops are moving toward the fron tier.” Writing, Aug. Ist, Miss Mark ham says: “The city is simply seeth ing tonight. The situation seems to be much graver than we had thought. The question is will it be best to cut for Spain or take a chance on condi tions calming down in a month or two? Another alternative is to stay and wait for American warships to take us home. No ships will accept paper money of any description; banks refuse to cash checks—closed entirely in fact, and the American express company refuses to cash anything over $lO and then gives half gold -r ' silver and the other half in paper. No taxicab driver will take you unless you show him silver money first.” HEAVY STORM AND MUCH HAIL. Wednesday morning’s storm visited the towns of Day, Cleveland and vil lage of Stratford. The corn stalks in those towns were whipped clean and resembled bean poles, likewise all crops were badly damaged by the hall that had fallen; even the shingles on buildings were knocked oil by Lire hail. At Stratford, hundreds of w in dow glass were broken and the roofs of several dwellings, stores, etc., were damaged by the storm. From Strat ford east and west the storm mowed a large swath, leaving disaster in its wake. It has been the only hail storm of any importance chat has visited Marathon county this year. But it is enough when one has to meet the bills for destroyed crops, broken glass, etc. OUT OF THE WAR ZONE. A letter received by Mrs. A. A. Hoeper from Rev. and Mrs. Evans in England recently, said that they ex pected to leave that country for the United States last Tuesday, the sail ing of the boat having been post poned from the Saturday before last Tuesday. They sailed on the An deania. Rev. Evans is expecting to occupy the pulpitem the 30th of the month. PRICE GOING UP. C. P. James, proprietor of the Wau sau Potash Cos., tells us that the war has greatly increased the demand for his product and that lie hai a tele gram from Chicago asking that he ship all the potash he had on hand. The demand for the product is liable to become very great, as it is used to some extent in the manufacture of powder. OPEN SEASON FOR GAME.

Pa., President of the German-American National Alliance, was adopted by the local branch at their last regular monthly meeting held August 16, 1914, and by an unanimous vote it was decided to publish said reso lution in all the local English newspapers. “Whereas, the American nation is composed of and has been brought to its present exalted position by immigrants from all parts of Europe, and Whereas, about one-fourth of the people.of the l nited States are of German birth or ancestry, who have done more than their fair share from early colonial times until now, in securing our liberty, in fighting to preserve the union, in upbuilding the nation, in every department of commerce and in dustry and in furthering its cultural development. Be it resolved that we, as American citizens, in sist that the American press shall present its inform ation in an unbiased and impartial manner, and that the editorials shall as far as possible he without prej udice or hatred toward any class of American citi zen : for, this, though an English speaking country, is not an English nation, and it is but fair in these trying times that the American spirit of fair play shall he exercised to further good feeling among American citizens of every extraction and creed.” Local Branch of German American Alliance Fritz Mohr, President Hilmar Schmidt, Secretary We Have Moved Into Our New Location ACROSS THE STREET 107 WASHINGTON ST.
