Everything Indicates a Great Victory. The Outcome is Watched With Great Inteiost. The big tight is on. The Wausau Y. M. C. A. is engaged in a member ship campaign against three other cities of the tests of this kind. Wau sau and Racine have each won vic tories, and Eau Glaire is out to win this year. Racine is anxious to re peat, and Fond du Lac will strive manfully to wipe out the disgrace of finishing iast in 1913. As for Wau sau, it goes without saying, that this city will make a big fight for the honors. As heretofore, the local workers are divided up into divisions, which will vie with others to see which can se cure the greatest numbers of mem bers. The whole campaign lias been made to assume the shape of a war fare. Wausau issued an ultimatum to the Allies, Racine, Eau Claire and Fond du Lac, demanding that they concede first place to Wausau. This the Allies promptly refused to do, is suing a counter ultimatum insisting that Wausau take last place. L'pon tiiis Wausau promptly declared war, at the big supper held at the “Y” on the last night of September. C. F. Ogden, as secretary, divided His forces into three divisions, and advised by his trusty counselors, ap pointed Emil Torgerson, Charles E. Parker and Robert Ilochtritt as cap tains, in command, respectively, of the artillery, the cavalry and the in fantry. These three brandies of the service were ordered to assume Hie offensive at once, and, the better to he prepared for a long war, to begin the securing of recruits. Thursday morning the fighting be gan, and lias been raging now for three days. So far the Allies seem to have the advantage, though their line shows a weakness in the center, which may he fatal to them. Fond du Lac, occupying the center of the long Little-line, is being repulsed rapidly. Each day’s fighting shows them in worse and worse confusion. It is suspected, however, that Fond du Lac was unprepared, being taken by surprise at the prompt invasion of Wausau’s forces. Unofficial re ports indicate that ’.arge re-inforce ments are on the way to support the weak center of the Allies, and Wau sau’s advance at this point may soon be checked. On both wings the Allies are gaining victory after vic tory. Both Racine and Eau Claire, the former on the left and the latter on the right wing of the Allied army, are sweeping all before them. Only large reinforcements from Wausau to strengthen the weak ends of her battle-line can save her from early defeat. At the “Y” headquarters there is so much confidence that one is led to suspect that the falling hack of the Wausau right and left wings is a subterfuge to draw the enemy into unfavorable ground, and to separate him as far as possible from his base of supplies. When his men are wearied out from forced marches and His ranks decimated from the furious charges in the faces of machine guns, the Wausau armies may fall upon him witli a fury that will check his advance, and drive him hack. At, any rate,' all is enthusiasm among the Wausau Army Board. The latest reports from the front show that Racine, occupying the left wing of the Allies’ position, has an army of 657 men; Eau Claire, on the right, 437; the exact strength of Fond du Lac has not been reported, hut it is known to be small. In the contest here in the city, be tween the three different branches of the service, the Cavalry, commanded by C. E. Parker, is leading, with 50 members The Artillery, in command of Captain Emil Torgerson, is next and Captain Hoclitrit of the Infantry is last. TIRE BURSTED. Last Saturday afternoon at five o’clock, the people in the vicinity of the county square were scared out of a year's grow th by a great big explosion. Visions of Zeppelin bombs, howitzers, etc., passed through their minds, and some thought that an attack had been made on the First National hank from the crowd that had gath ered. It only took a moment for 100 people to gather. The commotion was caused by the bursting of an automobile tire, and everybody turned around, laughed and said, “only an automobile tire.” But that is quite serious as a tire costs all the way from S4O to $75.

Bernier, of Mosinee, reached the city and caused much sorrow among the large nil tuber of friends of himself and family in Wau sau. Mr. Bernier for many years, had been conducting a mercantile business and was widely known and honored. Of him the Mosinee Times says: “For more than a quarter century Charles A. Bernier was identified with the history, advancement and c vie prosperity of this village. By reasoi. of this fact, as well as by his upright character, and straight for ward business methods, lie won a wide acquaintance and tiie friendship of all with whom ho came in contact. We believe that it can be said with out fear of refutation that Charles did not have an enemy in the world. Charles A. Bernier was born at Gra.nd Rapids, May 10th, 1801. His parents were natives of Canada and were pioneer residents of that city. He received Ills education in the pub lic schools of Grand Rapids, during part of which time he occupied his iiours.out of school in working about the mercantile establishments of the city. In this manner lie became familiar wi‘h tiie mercantile business to quite an extent and after finishing school worked for some time for dif ferent merchants in Grand Rapids. In 18. Q 2 lie came to Mosinee and en tered tiie employ of tiie late Joseph Homier, where he worked for two years in the capacity of confidential clerk and salesman. He then entered the employ of David Roberts man ager, clerk and bookkeeper, which position lie held for eight years. May sth, 1885, he was united in marriage Margaret Keefe, at this place. In 1892 Mr. Bernier formed a part nership with W. F. LaDu in the general mercantile business and this partnership continued until tiie fall of (sll when the firm was dissolved. The following spring lie engaged in tiie mercantile business for himself. His failing health, however; made it necessary to dispose of tiie business during the p2ut summer. Hewasalso interested quite extensively in farm and. wild lands in tiiis vicinity. During the years that Mr. Bernier was in business '.e was a recognized leader in many of the enterprises which were launched for the better ment of the village. He was tiie first president of tiie Mosinee Business Men’s Association, and in that capac ity was very active and aggressive. Later lie held the office of treasurer in the organization. He was director of tiie board of education for about fifteen years, and only resigned last summer by reason of his failing health. Mr. Bernier's religious affiliations were w ith the Roman Catholic belief, and as such lie endeavored and did live up to the teachings of His faith. He held the office of church trustee for a great many years. He was in strumental in organizing the'local order of Catholic Knights here some years and was also a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Catliolic Order of Foresters.” Mr. Bernier had been failing in health for over a year. At that time he suffered a slight stroke of paralysis and another on Christmas eve, more severe, still lie recovered sufficiently to be able to get about. Last August in received another stroke, since which time there had been very little hopes of his recovery. He is survived by his wife and one daughter, Miss Era. and twosons, Charles and Willis. His mother, who resided in Grand Rapids, and brothers and sisters as follows: Frank, of Grand Rapids; A., of Stevens Point: Louis of Mosinee; Mrs. Rockstead and Mrs. Bever of Grand Rapids and Mr. and Mrs. Frank of Mosinee. The funeral ceremonies took place j from St. Paul’s Catholic church at Mosinee. on Saturday morning at 10 o’clock. A large number of the citi zens of Wausau attended. The Y. M. C. A.’s new pump for i supplying water for its swimming tank from its new well, is now be- j ing installed. 1 SOCIETY ITEMS j Social Gatherings of the Past Week In Wausau and Vicinity For Pilot Readeis.

At six-thirty o clock a four course dinner was served. The tables were prettily arranged with shaded candles in col ors of yellow and white, covers being placed for sixty-live. At the close of each course during the dinner each gentleman left his seat and progressed to another table, thus making the affair most informal, and proving the truth of the old adage, “Variety Is the Spice of Life.” Afterdinner toasts were responded to, with Mrs. P. W. Sawyer as toast-mistress. Mrs. Saw yer introduced Mrs. Agnes Murray, the president of the club, who talked on “Municipal Baths for the City of Wausau.” J. S.
