WISCONSIN VALLEY TRUST COMPANY T his Company ALWAYS acts in every Estate where named as Executor and Trustee. That is its business, m know when you name us that we will act when the time comes. ' his Company does not die—it does not fall ill—it is \ i\ KR incapacitated. \nd this Company is EXPERIENCED. Looking r a man’s affairs when he is no longer here to look after ! n himself is our business. It L our specialty, and we w it just as a good farmer knows how to farm. \t all times we can secure investments for an Estate investments. Very few individual Executors can do . It is not their businass. They haven’t the facilities, law compels an Executor to SAFELY invest the mils of an Estate. The law names certain investments. V- e can get these investments at any time. An individual ■nerally does one of two things. If he cannot get them c invests the money in something else—and takes the mce. Rather, your Estate takes the chance, and if the nev is lost the loss most always falls upon your Estate. Or he may hold the money until he can get a legal invest ment and until he can do so, your money is earning no interest. Your Estate loses the interest—your individual Executor doesn’t have to pay it. More money is lost by Executors who are incompetent than by Executors who are dis honest. The cost of a competent Trust Co mpany is the same as that of an incompetent individual. WHAT WILL® YEAR! New year! Little spirit of the new year!

Nearly every one in Wausau has had or is having the grippe; whole families have been ill, some have dragged along for several weeks hard ly able to get about. It is said that the disease is the very worst known in this country since 1899; sudden changes in the weather and the dust and dirt during the dry spell in November is the cause given by doctors. Some siem to think that if the snow storm, which has covered Northern Wisconsin, had come earlier, there wouldn’t have been such an epidemic in the north. Let us hope that the epidemic will soon let up. It seems to be prevalent throughout the country. JUST THE RIGHT PRESENT Don’t take chances in the matter of Christmas presents. \ou don t want vours, like so many others, to be received with indifference or worse, and ten days after Christmas to be cast aside and forgotten. You take no such chance in giving The Youth’s Companion for a year. Did you ever know of a home in which it came amiss, or of one in: which it was not conspicuous on the • library table or in some one’s hands all through the year? It is worth while to make a gift of i that sort, and it is worth while to j receive it, too, for The Companion illustrates the best traits in Ameri can life in its stories and sketches, upholds the best standards in its arti cles and other contributions.and com bines the practical and informing with the entertaining and blood stirring.

Sixth Annual Event Will be Held Thurs day and Friday, January 27th and 28th. W. A. von Berg informs us that the dates for Mosinee’s sixth annual corn show and dairy school have been final ly agreed upon, and speakers assigned by the university for this occasion. The show this year will be held on Thursday and Friday, January 27th and 28th, and the program will be one of the best that has ever been con ducted here. Mosinee has come to be recognized as the king bee of them all when it comes holding winter meetings of this kind and none but the best speakers are assigned here. The premium list will he published the first of next month, in ample time for circulation before the event is held. This is now being compiled. The usual list of prizes will he given besides special premiums. While tiie corn crop was a failure this year, still it is not thought that this will effect the show in any particular, and there is no reason why we should not have just as good a winter meeting this year as any that have been held in the past five years, with just as good an attendance. F. L. Graber, of the department of agriculture, who was here two years ago, will have charge of the work on one of the days, and G. C. Humphrey, of the department of animal husband ry, will be here for the second day. Mr. Humphrey was also here some few years ago. H. W.

Burg, of the school of agriculture. A domestic science demonstration will again he given by the girls of the Marathon county school of agriculture and do mestic economy, under the direction of Miss Mary Alice Brown, similar to the one conducted last year Mosinee Times. RUSH AT THE POST OFFICE. The rush at the post office has probably been greater than on any other previous holiday season, It has been at times almost impossible to mail parcel post packages, one had to stand in line and take his turn. The congestion usually came at the close of the day. Then, too, many had directed their packages wrong, leav ing off the name of the sender, which had to go in the left hand upper corner. Besides the motorcycles which have had to be used in the delivery of parcels post, two autos had to be pressed into service, taking out and delivering packages. HEAVY SNOW STORM. A regular old time pinery snow storm visited this section last Wednes day afternoon. The weather was just cold enough for snow and it fell in great large flakes undisturbed by wind. There was a level fall of six in ches. The sound of the snow shovel was heard late into the night for it was 9 o’clock and past when the storm stopped. Wausau and vicinity now has the best sleighing in years, before the holidays. DANCING. Miss McCrossen announces the opening of her dancing studio at 510 Third street. Studio phone 3633.

THE HUB WAIJSAI), W 19., TIJESPAY, PECEMPER 28, 1915. BURGLARS ARRESTED.. Two Men Try to Burglarize the Olfice of the Northwestern Dyeing and Cleaning Works When Edwin Stoddard, who is superintendent of the Northwestern Dyeing and Cleaning Works at 127-129 Clinton street, went into the plant last Tuesday evening to finish up some work, he entered quickly and turned or. the electric light; and he was somewhat surprised to see two men trying to make their escape. They had been tampering with the office desk, hut from all indications had been at work but a few moments and had not succeeded in getting at the contents. Mr. Stoddard followed them out of the rear door and chased them for some distance and catching up with one of the men ordered him to stop, which he did after being given to understand that if he didn’t his life might he at stake. Ed. marched tiie would-he burglar, whose name was given as Walter Johnson, to First avenue and turned him over to policemen Roach and Baerwald, who took him to tiie city hall jail. The other burglar escaped but it was found out later that he had caught a St. Paul train and went to Junction City, and possibly from there to Stev ens Point. Dynamite and dynamite caps were found on Johnson’s person, also fuse, a jimmy, steel drill, pliers and other articles. He finally made a confession to tiie effect that lie and Harry Harding had started in several weeks ago at St. Paul, deciding to do a little professional work in the line of burglarizing. They visited Stevens Point, Waupaca, Stanley and other places, entering various places and se curing in some place sover SIOO. They came to Wausau on Tuesday after noon and were caught in their first attempt. Johnson said that Harding had served a term in the penitentiary of Wisconsin. Harding was captured at Stevens Point on Wednesday con cerning which tiie Journal says: “At about 8 o’clock Wednesday eve ning Chief of Police Hofsoos, Sheriff Guyant and Undersheriff Fred Iless, the latter of Waupaca county, rounded up two yeggmen at a residence just south of this city. If the story told by the of the two men is true, one of them is a man with a criminal record of some length and is a genuine bad man. The story is about as follows : Chief of Police Ilofsoos was on the lookout for a man answering the description given him by Chief of Police Malone of Wausau, of a burglar who, with a pal, had robbed a Wausau business house. He finally learned that two men had entered the Soo hotel in this city at about 3:30 Wednesday morning and soon afterward went to bed. He also found that they arose about noon and telephoned to the house, where they were afterward captured, saying they were up against it and wanted dinner. They were assured they could get their din ner so walked south along the Soo line tracks until they came to the house. The men remained there the rest of the day. Chief Ilofsoos, after careful inquiry, determined one of the men was the one wanted at Wsusau. In the meantime he had telephoned the sheriff of Waupaca county and in formed him that a man answering the description of one who it was sup posed had pulled off some jobs in Waupaca recently, was here. Under sheriff Iless came up on the 5:29 train and at about 7:30 in the evening, in company with Sheriff Guyant, went to the house. Each of the officers took station at the doors and upon knocking for admission a young woman responded. Stie was asked if there was anybody in the house but herself and replied there were two men upstairs. At the request of the officers the men were called and the officers took them into custody. At the jail they gave their names as Harry Pantridge, twenty-five, of St. Paul, and William McCarthy, twenty, Bay City, Michigan. After being locked up McCarthy was taken into the sheriff’s office at the jail, where he was given a taste of the third degree. At first he would not •‘peach” on his companion, but at about 11 o'clock weakened and told •this story: He hrst met Pantridge when he was in a box car at Wausau and from there the pair came to this city. They went to the Soo hotel to sleep, later going to the house where they were taken prisoners. He said Pantridge had told him he had blown two safes at Stanley, and had done ‘•jobs” at Waupaca and Merrill, that he w as one of those who w ith a ‘ pal” robbed a Wausau business house and his companion was caught after they had completed the robbery there. He also said Pantridge was one of the men who, on December 2, held up and robbed the saloon at Starks and when overtaken by Oneida coun ty officers had shot and wounded Arthur Rood and Hans Anderson. He said Pantridge had told him he had received *2BO as his share of the booty taken at Starks. Pan tridge had also talked about a robbery he and his “pai” had planned at Sherri-, where, he said, they intended to crack the safe in a lumber com pany's office. McCarthy also said Pantridge had thrown away a fuse and several caps when they had walked a ong the Soo line tracks that : day. This morning an effort was j made to locate the fuse, but it could not be found. I It has also been learned that Pan i tridge and the companion captured lat Wausau, were here from last Fri j day untii Monday and w ere lavish in jin their expenditure of money. It is j also know n that Pantridge was born : and lived near Waupaca for several | years. McCarthy and Pantridge were taken OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO.

In various cities of this country, among them New York, Chicago, St. Louis, St. Paul, Pittsburgh and Balti more, bazars have already been con ducted, the net returns of which are intended to be used for the allevia tion of war-sutlers in the old Father land. That which contributed, above everything else, to the magnificent success of these bazars, was the spirit which animated them. This same beautiful spirit of active and practical humanity and philanthropy, which is foreign to all feelings of passion aroused by the war, and which is in tended only to heal the wounds that have been inflicted, will also domin ate the great bazar which is to be held in our Milwaukee Auditorium the week of March Ist to March 7th, 1916. The committee to whose hands the various matters have been intrusted, places special importance on the fact that it wishes to emphasize, that this undertaking is by no means one of merely local character, but that on the contrary it confidently expects the energetic assistance of the citizens of the whole state. To all, even those whose sympathies are on the other side, but who, when seeing a fellow human being suffer, do not in quire as to his nationality, will be given an oppartunity to contribute to the success of this work of good will. But it is especially to the German- Americans of the state that the com mittee looks for active and willing cooperation. On this account, on the eve of the Christmas holidays, at a time when the soul is animated by feelings of love and humanity, the appeal goes out to all, who, no matter where their birthplace may have been, are wiling to render aid to this noble undertaking. May everyone who reads this call, which is to be spread far and wide in both the German and the English press of the state, and reach tire dwellers of country and city alike, may everyone who has a heart for the suffering of his fellowmen, hasten to communicate either with Mr. Alvin P. Kletzsch, Chairman of the committee, Republican House, or with Mr. Win. Schultz, Secretary, Merchants & Manufacturers’ Bank Building, in order to find out and determine in what manner hisco-oper tion in this worthy cause may best be made available. Particularly welcome is the participation and assistance of already existing organizations and that of societies to be organized for this purpose, who should be gladly willing to undertake the arrangement and conducting of bazar booths, or co-operate in tilling parts and numbers in the elaborate program of this bazar. Let us then, all of us, jcin hands in the beautiful spirit of yuletide love and make this bazar an eloquent witness of the humanitarian and liberal spirit of the population of Wisconsin. HOW’S THIS?

The following cases were disposed of in circuit court during the past week : Case of John Brogan vs. Marathon Paper Mills Cos.

All of the Months Play Their Parts In This Timely Pastime. This game is played as a sort of “dumb crambo.” There are an audi ence and thirteen actors, or a few months can be suggested, taking months containing notable holidays. First comes before the audience the little New Year. She announces that her children are coming and to him who guesses the most names correctly will be given a prize. Then comes January, with her hand full of slips of papers on w r kid: are written “good resolutions;” these she scatters to the audience and gees off. Of course the months must not follow her in succession. Next may come July, fanning him self and perhaps snapping a firecrack er or in some other way not so plain suggesting Independence day. Then September, working hard for Labor day or bearing a September flow T er or fruit November, with a suggestion 'of Thanksgiving, and so on. Birthdays of noted men may mark the month, the actor saying or doing something to recall the man. The audience must write down who No. 1 is, 2. and so on to the end. Then comes the year, who gives the prize. NOTICE. The annual meeting of the stock holders of the Firs£ National bank of Wausau.
