DEATH OF CORNELIUS S. CURTIS Leading Citizen of Wausau—Prominent in Its Manu facturing, Banking, Lumbering and Other Interests, Passed Away on Wednesday Night, Jan. 5,1916. Many Come From Various Parts of Wisconsin, lowa and Minnesota to Attend Funeral, Which Was Held Saturday Afternoon. On Thursday morning the citizens of Wausau were inexpressibly shocked by the announcement of the death of one of our leading and best known oublic men—Cornelius S. Curtis. It could not be fully realized, nor is it yet, that one who was only a few hours before, in the very vigor of strong manhood, is to be with us no more. It has cast a gloom over our city and especially throughout the day, men gathered with sorrowful faces, and paid respect in thought, word and gesture, to their departed friend and co-worker in everything w :ich tended to the advancement of Wausau and the community. The large < urtis & Yale Cos. factory was closed ind the stars and stripes hung at half : .iSt from its flag-staff. On the First National Bank, of which Mr. Curtis vas vice-president, the flag was placed at half-mast and on other public mildings of our city. There are ex uressions of great sorrow on every hand. Cornelius S. Curtis was in the very iest of health, seemingly, up to the time of his death. He had spent Wednesday evening at the Wausau club in social converse with old friends. At 10:30 o’clock, with his son Walter, he went home, and was in his usual good spirits. Mrs. Curtis and other members of the household had retired. Mr. Curtis seldom re tired early, and usually would peruse the papers and magazines or play a _aaae of solitaire and smoke a cigar after the others had retired. He did this on his return home Wednesday evening. 4 was ascertained that lie went to the pantry, ate a light lunch, emptied the ash tray into the tire place and then sat down again at the table. Just at what hour the end came is not known, but Mrs. Curtis, awaking at about 3 o’clock, notic ing the hall light still turned on and becoming anxious, went down stairs She found her husband sitting in his chair, his body leaning forward and his head pillowed on his arm upon the table. She was unaL'e to arouse him and called hersister, Mrs. Martin, the family physician and her sons. J .nn and Walter. Mr. Curtis had passed away as quietly and peacefully as one dropping off to sleep. All were helpless. Loving hands could and > nothing to bring back the spark of life. The immediate cause of death was apoplexy. The death of his brother, Chas F. Curtis, at Clinton. 1 wa, two weeks previously, had deep y affected him and in a measure, perhaps, hastened the end. Mr. Curtis had lived in Wausau for nearly 35 years and every moment of that time, he was a strong factor in As business and social movements. His energies were not especially con fined to his home city but rather ex tended to the borders of our state and into lowa and Minnesota, where he had large interests, and in many of the large cities of our country where he had built up branches to his extensive industry. He accomplished things of such magnitude that it was difficult for the average man to fol -v him. In all his undertakings he was eminently successful. In men of iv.ch a large business capacity there is invariably a conflict between temper ament and training. It was so with Mr. Curtis. By temperament he was impulsive: by training, judicial and ca:;u. By superior ability he bad lilt ud one of the largest sash, door and blind industries in this country. There has not been an important i.oveiuent, which tended to the ad vancement, betterment or improve ent of Wausau, during his life here in which Mr. Curtis was interested i gave his time, his means and his a ■■..tv to bring about results. Many :r institutions have grown strong • i thrived under tils fostering care, a ; he 1 ad been a most potent factor i raking Wausau what it is today.

'• the social life of our city he was j active. He was a member of the -e Masonic bodies and was a Past u.r.ander of St. Orner Commandery ■ K. i'., a thirty-second degree a and a member of the Wisconsin - story Milwaukee. He belonged tie Wausau Club and for many “ - was its president, and it was v mg to his loyalty and energy to restitution that it has proven so ar and so successful. He was a ■ mer of the Wausau Country Club * 1 a member of the First Baptist J rch. No one will ever know of any generous and kindly acts of r - h urtis. He was a man of ciiarity in every sense of the word. Wausau has sustained an irreparable loss, and so universally was he beloved that each individual feels his death as the passing of a oersonal friend. Mr. Curtis was born in Chenango county, New York, August 1, 1851, and came to Rochelle, 111., in 1856, emigrating to that part of the west with his father, John slmonds Curtis, and his mother, Elizabeth Custer Curtis. Mr. Curtis comes of a very long-lived and particularly virile race. Tiie father and mother v*ere in mid dle age when they removed to the west, but they lived a lifetime after that date, his father dying at Clinton, lowa, in the spring of 1891, his mother passing away on Christmas day, 1899. The father’s people were Welsh and the mother was of English extraction. The first home of Mr. Curtis’ family in this country was C6nnecticut. The father of Cornelius S. Curtis was a farmer. He was a farmer in Illinois and was a farmer in New York previous to that time. He owned a large farm about four miles north of Rochelle, 111., when the sub- i—rnniTßi—ii iiiiiibiii——i hi mm wii in iiiiiii mi m \ jjJBBt ■ sL wL W g $ '■ i i ject of this sketch was yet a young man. Mr. Curtis was of a family of eight six boys and two girls—five of this , family dying young, only one is living-; Geo. M. Curtis of Clinton, lowa, of the great sash, door and blind manufac turing business of Curtis Bros. & Cos. The elder Curtis boys, George M. and C. F. Curtis, started a business in Courtland, 111., in 1866. Pp to that time the younger brother, C. S. Curtis, had worked on the farm and attended country school. In 1868 the father of these three stalwarts in the sash and door trade moved to Rochelle. The movement to Rochelle was probably the retirement and acme of the life work of the successful farmer of the west, which the elder Curtis certain ly was. That was the line of demarkation between the muscle-hardening labor of several generations of the Curtis family and a beginning of the gradua tion into higher planes of living and other lines of work which meant that in the future they would be more con cerned in the affairs cf men of the world than in the affairs of the “man with the hoe.” It transpired that as early as l'<>s there was a Curtis Bros. & Cos. at Clinton, lowa, and that Curtis Bros. & Cos. w ere making sash, doors and blinds. In that factory young Corne lius S. Curtis went to work putting up sash, which was his first sash, door and blind job. He stayed there until he finallv had charge of the sash de partment, but that does not mean that he stayed a long while to get that promotion, for inside of twelve months, in the fall of 1869, he left the sash and door business and went to work with S. T. Seaman in the gro- cer v business. In the summer of 1870 Mr. t urtis formed a partnership with William Shields of Clinton. lowa, and engaged in general merchandising. On September 17. 1872. Mr. Curtis was married to Miss Emma M. Duhck of Clinton. lowa. In January, is-3 he sold his business and en- Zged with Curtis Bros. & Cos to rep ent them on the road. In those davshe traveled in sixteen different territories. He . with Curtis Bros. & Cos. continuously until the fell o( is~ hen he went to Den in lone, end opened up en itnp.e ment business. This it seems es m to divert himself Hn ii s S -ereet. Thet.hu.. 1(1S , combination of the Itnple- Wa usa u J 88! Pil ot. ment business with sash and doors. This business was continued until 1881. In 1881 Mr. Curtis came to Wausau and built a sash and door factory. This was in the spring of the year. It was on June 1, 1881, that Curtis Bros. & Cos., a partnership, became Curtis Bros. & Cos., an incorporation, and it was on February 1 of the suc ceeding year that the factory in Wau sau which Mr. Curtis had built was ready for operation. The business here was originally meant to become a stock factory—it was built for that, and most of the goods it was expected would be dis posed of through the Clinton house, but it afterwards developed into special work and became the great concern which it is today. At first the product of this factory was distributed largely through Cur tis Bros. & Cos. at Clinton, lowa, or by the manufacturing concern at Wausau. Ultimately the company distributed ‘ much of this product through the Adams-Horr company, a joboing house at Minneapolis. The Adams-Horr cor a:y became Car penter Bros, company in 1893. In 1893 there was formed the Cur tis & Yale company, which bought out the Carpenter Bros, company at Minneapolis and Curtis Bros. & Cos. at Wausau. Of this company the subject of this sketch was elected secretary and treasurer, S. M. Yale vice-president, and George M. Curtis, of Clinton, lowa, president. Mr. Yale went to Minneapolis to manage the house there and C. S. Curtis assumed the management of the plant at Wausau, which of course had been in his active charge since its inception. He was ’ater elected president, which position he held up to the time of iiis death. In 1897 a jobbing house was estab lished in Milwaukee, Wis., under the general company name of the Curtis & Yale company and later at various times there were similar connections in Detroit, Chicago and Pittsburgh, the latter being the only one now directly in charge of the Curtis & Yale Cos., the management of which is in the hands of its eastern repre sentative, M. J. Colby. Other associ ated interests are represented in vari ous cities of the country among which are Lincoln, Neb.; Sioux City, Iowa; Oklahoma City, Okla.: Detroit; Chi cago and Minneapolis. Having a factory situated in a great hardwood country and using hundreds of thousands of feet of hardwood lumber as material it was natural that Mr. Curtis should early in his Wisconsin career become in terested in hardwood lumber. His interest crystallized into the Fen wood Lumber company by the pur chase of a lot of Limber land on the proposed line of the North-Western road, wliich road was ultimately built through to Marshfield. C. S. Curtis was president of this company. He was also president of the Ingram Lumber company. Mr. Curtis, as a hardwood operator and a few other choice and associated spirits, met at Louisville, Ky., in 1390, and began the first throe of that movement which later crystallized into national hard wood inspection. Mr. Curtis had been more or less of an active member of hardwood associations ever since and was a member of the National Hardwood Lumber Association. In the spring of 1900 the Curtis & Yale Company embarked in another collateral business project, purchasing what was then used for a furniture plant at Wausau and converting it into a piant for the manufacture of hardwood flooring, basswood ceiling, etc., using the upper floors of the factory for finishing and warehousing the stock. This plant later was sold to H. E. McEachron, which has been converted into flour and cereal mil If Mr. Curtis was not only strong in matters partaining to the lumber and sash and door business, but his judg ment was especially good in financial matters. In reognition of his ability along financial line*, he was elected a a director of the First National bank at its reorganization from a private to a National Bank, in 1882. and he WAIJSAI), Wis., TIiESPAY, JaNi/ARY 11, 1916. served the bank in that capacity up to the time of his death. In 1908 he was elected vice-president to fill the vacancy caused by the death of R. E. Parcber. Asa director and officer of the Fi-st National bank he was faith ful to his trust. In spite of his busy hours with his many personal inter ests he was always in attendance at directors’ meetings, vitally inter ested in the affairs of the bank. He was also a member of the Wausau Clearing House association, represent ing the First National bank. It was here that his sound judgment and the confidence he inspired meant much to the banking interests of our commun ity. • He was vice-president of the Great Northern Life Insurance company, which he had held since the organiza tion of the company. He was also one of the directors of the Wausau Street Railroad company. Mr. Curtis took great interest in the agricultural growth of our county and has owned many tine farms. He had done as much as any one man in bringing into the county pure bred stock, horses as well as cattle, and at the time of his death lie was the owner of many tini cattle on his farms at Fenwood and Ingram. For a number of years Mr. Curtis has forseen the possibility of changes which must surely come and provided for them in a most remarkable way; bis business and family interests,be ing conserved so that their future continuance is assured with as little change as possible. Mr. Curtis was a republican in politics and a very strong force in the conservative element of his party. As in business, he never put his shoulder to the wheel to assist his party in a half hearted way, but threw in all the energy he possessed and his party knew him as a leader and a power in this sec tion. He never would seek office, but at times was forced into positions. He was selected as a delegate to the national republican convention in 1893, which nominated Benjamin Harrison for the presidency lie was for several years a member of the Board of Education and served on the County Board of Supervisors and the City Council. There are left to mourn his death, his wife, two sons, John E. Curtis and Walter E. Curtis and five grand children, all of this city. Both sons have been connected with the Curtis & Yale Cos. for many years and have been actively engaged in its manage ment. For the past eight or ten years they have taken much of the details from the shoulders of their father. The remains lay in state at the home from 10:30 until 12 o’clock on Saturday morning and hundreds of our people took the opportunity- to look upon his face for the last time. The funeral services took place from the home at the corner of Sixth and Grant streets, at 2:30 o’clock Saturday afternoon, Rev. W. D. Bancroft, of the First Baptist church officiating. Wausau Lodge No. 130. F. & A. M. marched to the residence in a body in charge of W. W. Albers, Marshal, headed by an escort from St. Omer Commandery, in charge of F. W. Burt, Eminent Commander. At the close of the services, at the home, the Masonic order took charge, F. E. Bump, Worshipful Master, presiding. At Pine Grove cemetery the ritual istic service of the order was con ducted in the chapel which had been heated for the occasion. Friends of deceased had come long distances to pay their last respects, and indeed, it seemed as if our whole population that could not get inside of the residence, were lined up on eith er sides of the streets from the corner of Grant and Sixth to the cemetery. Tims, thousands did him honor in this way. The weather had turned from the bitter cold to one of the most bright and beautiful days of winter, more like March than January, in temperature. The pall bearers were all Past Commanders of St. Omer Comman dery, viz: J. M. Kuebler. John N. Manson, Wm. B. Scholtield, F. P. Stone, S. M. Quaw. W. F. Collins. H. J. Seim and E. B. Thayer.

(Signed) Employees' Committee of Curtis & Yale Cos. STARTS UP WEDNESDAY. At Last the Farmers’ Co-operative Plant of Wausau a Reality. On Wednesday next, the Farmers’ Co-operative Packing Plant will com mence operations. The buildings will be entirely completed by that time. Already there has been much stock shipped here and indications are there will be plenty to be had in adjacent territory. The Pilot has, in previous issues, given a full description of the ex tensive plant. Suffice it to say that it is one of the most complete in the country. It has been reported, and the report has gained wide circulation, that the company would only purchase stock of stockholders of the concern. The Pilot has been asked to contradict this story, and to say that the com pany will purchase such stock as it needs from any one who has it for sale. Organizations for shipping have been formed in nearly every town in the county and there will be no trouble in securing an adequate and steady supply. The packing plant will have on hand a full supply of everything usually carried by such institutions. The plant will give employment to fifty men continuously. ANTIGO HIGH SCHOOL DES TROYED. Following an explosion heard all over the Antigo at 3 o’clock Thurs day morning, fire broke out in the high school there and destroyed the building. The tire department was hindered in its work by the cold, the thermometer registering 22 degrees below zero. The building, which was valued at *70,000, exclusive of books and equip ment, was a tire trap, according to underwriters. They said that it would have been impossible for all pupils to escape had a blaze occurred in the day time. A strong wind car ried fiaming shingles many blocks and it was with difficulty that the fire was kept from spreading. The home of former Congressman E. A. Morse caught fire but the blaze was extinguished before it did much damage. Ice and snow- on the roofs of buildings prevented the spread of the tire. Three congregations today offered the use of their churches and basements to the school board to be used for classes. Other rooms are available in the city hall and court house. Construction of anew build ing will be a serious problem as the city is now bonded almost to the limit. MISS JOSEPHINE BRADFORD.

Miss Bradford was born at Wausau and came to Appletin 1879 and lived here many years. During the last eight or ten years she has been spending her time in this city and Hinsdale, 111.

Mr. Bradford went to the Black Hills where he passed away in 1875. Mrs. Bradford and family went to Appleton in 1875, where Mrs. Bradford died a few years later. Four weeks from tomorrow is the Fourth and nothing done yet.

Winkley returned from her lowa visit yesterday. Gen. Kellogg orated r.nd decorated at Reedsburg, May ouch. Pete and Ed. Carmer returned from a trip into the woods looking over pine lands on Tuesday.
