The Bank and the Public
A Bank is of necessity more or less of a Public Institution. The Bank’s business is to serve the Public in all matters having to do with the handling of funds or property. If money is involved in the transaction, bring the matter to the Bank—it is probable that we can assist you. It is not necessary that you be a deposi tor in this Bank. • National German American Bank FARMERS, ATTENTION! Did you ever realize what a great sacrifice the GOD OF WAR demanded ? Did you ever think, as you sit in your hi ppy home surrounded by your family, of the great struggle which is being waged beyond the sea ? Of the many, many homes as happy as your own which is rent asunder by the war god’s call ? All was peace and quiet there not so very long ago, and now wives are weeping for husbands who lie upon the field of death, girls are waiting for sweethearts who will not return, and children cry for fathers who have answered their country’s call. ONE REEL OF PICTURES OF THE GREAT EUROPEAN WAR will be shown at the BIJOU THEATRE on September Ist, 1914. In addition to this we are going to give another war picture and also VAUDEVILLE.

In September a very suc cessful reception to the teachers of the city schools was given. On Oct. 14th, A. Alexanian gave a lecture in the library on oriental rugs.

During the past week the local team seems to have been improving in playing and several good games were staged. Racine was here last Tuesday, then Madison came Wednes day and the lumberjacks won the series two out of three. Hoffman twirled a sensational two hit game against the senators, allowing them only one run while his teammates scored the two runs needed for the victory. Tiie nine innings were play ed in record breaking time and the lumberjacks played like pennant | winners. Ranch also won a batting j feast the next day, nine to two. The i majority of our players haven't been showing big league talent, although a few have, but we hope our manager will see fit to procure better players next year. The Appleton team is very much discouraged over financial difficulties and has given out an orti cal report that they will quit the league at the end of the present season. Their six years have given them a taste of baseball trouble. The games of the past week were all play ed in this city—there wasn’t over attendance either—and their results were as follows: Tuesday last, Wau sau 1, Racine 6, Bailies pitcher; Wed nesday, Wausau 3, Madison 5, Roberts pitcher; Thursday, Wausau 2, Madi son 1, Hoffman pitcher; Friday, Wau sau 9, Madison 2, Ke ich pitcher; Satu-day, rain: Sunday, Waus?„u 5, Rockford 3, Stevenson pitcher: Wau ~au 2, Rockford 5, Bailies pitcher: Monday, Wausau 5, Rockford 12. Gaedtke pitcher. The standing of the teams are as follows: W. L. Pet.

The Stevens Point Journal says that Wausau, although trailing in the Wisconsin-1 llinois circuit lias been playing good ball and that this game has been secured in order to get the fans out and assure semi-professional ball again next season at the Point. They also say that this game w ill be a real tryout for their pitcher, “Rube” Peters who has been showing class of late. This will be a splendid chance tor the locals to try out some of their new men. WAUPACA TENNIS TOURNA MENT WON BY WAUSAU MAN. The Waupaca tennis tournament of last week was won by Fred Cobb, of this city and who is a member of our Wausau Country-club. Last week Herbert Smith, Fred Cobb and Sol ileinemann went to Waupaca, enter ing tiie tournament. In the single matches forty-three were ent" ed and twenty teams for doubles.registered. This proved the largest and most suc cessful tournament ever held at Wau paca. Cobb was the dark-horse of the meet, outclassing everyone lie played, he won first place, receiving the Hall trophy. This trophy has to be won three years in succession and then it is the winners for good. In tiie double matches, the Wausau team did not do so much. Sol. Ileine mann and Fred Cobb composed the team but were beaten at the begin ning. Herbert Smith played a splen did game in the single but experienced hard luck. LOCKJAW CLAIMS WM. KOPLEIN.

Otto Patzer, son of Mrs. Elizabeth Patzer of this city, who has been in Europe the past several months, has not been heard from for more than a month before the war began. His mother expected that he would sail on the fifteenth of this month, two weeks ago yesterday, but that was impossible on account of prevail ing conditions. Mrs. Patztr says she is sure her son is still in Germany where he has been visiting relatives. Mr. Patzer is professor of French in the Washington State University at Seattle and expected to be there again the coming year. There is tio telling w hen he may be able to leave the warring country. A NEW METHOD OF SUPPLY. In order to keep the water in the Y. M. C. A. swimming tank clear and fresh, steel pipes are to be driven down to a great deptii on tiie campus north of tiie building, and pipes w:! 1 be laid to tiie Y building connecting with tiie swimming pool. This will lie great improvement as the water ir the tank at present looks dirty and has no clearness at all. Then, too, the water can be changed but twice or three times a week, while under the new system it will be changed’ every day if necessary. DEATH OF MRS. PATTERSON.

GIRL DROWNED NEAR COUN TRY CLUB On Wednesday evening li'-Ue Weismann, daughter of Mr. jind Mrs. August Weismann who reside south of the village of Schofield, left her home to bring the cow from the pas ture which adjoins the Wausau coun try club grounds. Unable to find the cov? and perhaps frightened by the approaching darknesc, sue attempted to cross one of the numerous sloughs in that neighborhood. This particu lar one was about forty feet w ide and ! the footprints in the bottom clearly indicacted her intent. She waded only a short distance when she stum bled into a hole several feet over her head, from which she was unable to get out and was drowned. All Wednesday evening and the next morning and night, search was made for her but no sign could lie discovered. On Thursday evening the gates of the paper mill were opened, allowing the water in the lake and sloughs to be lowered several feet. Again a search was instigated by a large number of people in that neigh borhood and .after a short time the bouy was discovered. Some hope had been held that she would be found alive but the majority of the searchers thought she had been drowned. There was part.ically no doubt that the drowning- was entirely accidental, but an inquest was field Friday morning and post|K>ned to Saturday that there might be no doubt . The result of the inquest was as follow’s: “Minnie Weismann came to her death on the ninteenth day of August, 1914, by accidental drowning in a slough near the Wisconsin river on the old Meuret farm, while after her cow.” Her funeral took place at 3 p. in. Saturday from the Lutheran church at Scho field, Rev. Betz officiating. PUD ADVERTISEMENT. Written by and issued in behalf of William R. Cheliis. Amt. 75c. 'Jr V * $ Ana Jt/A' 1 VOTE FOR WILLIAM R.

APPENDICITIS is an imflam mation of the appendix, a small worm-like organ projecting from the lower part of the colon or large intestine. This inflammation is due to but one condition and that is irritation to its nerve supply, and the moment this irritation is removed the inflammation subsides. This has been demonstrated time and again by us in giving Chiro practic Adjustings for this condi tion and the restoration of tiie appendix to normal does not de pend upon conditions of other or gans of the body unless associated with the same nerve supply. Recent discoveries of Sir William Evans, an English surgeon, who has performed more operations for Appendicitis than any other sur geon in England, has so thoroughly convinced him of the usefulness of tiie appendix that he no longer re moves it. By watching the activ ity of the appendix he has dis covered a clear, thick, akaline fluid poured from it into tiie colon, and when added to the pancreatic juice (digestive juice), dissolves the white of an egg ir. 3 to 10 minutes, while the pancreatic juice alone required 6 hours to digest it. So we see the vast importance of the appendix, and why its removal siiould not ba attempted until ail other methods ha\e failed. CHIROPRACTIC makes seven ty-five percent of operations for appendicitis wholly unnecessary. We can show definite results in such cases, both adult and children. Offices 311 Jefferson St., or>.
