TUESDAY, JAN. 11, 1916. OFFICIAL CITY AND COUNTY PAPER. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau as second class matter. The editors advocating the “isms” of Senator La Follette met in Mad ison on Tuesday to discuss the polit ical situation. There were about a dozen representatives of various papers located in different cities of Wisconsin, and a dozen of the most prominent were unable to attend and who sent letters. Those men tioned to make the run for governor against Gov. Phillip were Otto Bosshard, C. H. Crownhurst, Merlin Hull, Atty. Gen. Owen, and Lieut. Gov. Dittmar, and some believed that Senator La Follette should forego being a candidate for U. S. Senator and make the run for governor. Senator LaFollette spoke at Merrill on Wednesday evening. He spoke at the Badger opera honse, to a crowd of 800. While many of us are decidedly against LaFollette’s views, yet it looks as if the persist ent fight made by his enemies, is bringing friends to his support. Senator LaFollette passed through Wausau Wednesday, walking up from the depot to the Beilis House. The scurrilous reference made by the Record-Herald of this fact, makes friends for the Senator. It would be better to take up La Follette on his record than to strike him in the back. It now looks as if LaFollette and McGovern were going to combine forces. Yet this is the very couple that raised the taxes on us so enor mously several years ago and made possible Gov. Philipp’s election. Robert C. Spencer, the pioneer of Milwaukee, proprietor of the Spencerian Business College, died yes terday, aged 86 years.

KUHLMANN Persian Agriculture. The great arid wastes of Persia would lead one to believe that the country does not produce sufficient grain to supply the needs of its popu lation. Such, however, is not the case, and considerable quantities of grain are exported each year. The principal grains grown are wheat, barley and rice. Corn is planted in small quanti ties, but is used only for roasting ears. Oats and rye are seldom sown. Ex cept along the Caspian coast, Persian agriculture is dependent almost entire ly on irrigation. The agricultural im plements used in Persia are of the most primitive kind. Plows are made from forks of small trees, with the addition of an iron share. It is stated to be doubt ful, however, whether the yield of grain would be greatly increased by using modern plows, as there is no sod and this crude implement seems to stir the soil fairly tvelL Wonders of the World. Three groups of “wonders,” each containing seven, are listed as seven wonders of the ancient world, seven wonders of the middle ages and seven wonders of the modem world. The first group comprises pyramids of Egypt, pharos of Egypt, hanging gar dens of Babylon, temple of Diana a f Ephesus, statue of Jupiter by Phidias, mausoleum of Artemisia, colossus of Rhodes. The second group comprises the coliseum of Rome, catacombs of Alexandria, Great wall of China, Stonehenge, leaning tower of Pisa, por celain tower of Nanking, mosque of St. Sophia. The modern group comprises wireless, telephone, aeroplane, radium, antiseptics and antitoxins, spectrum analysis, X ray. Mapmaking. Mapmaking goes back to the earliest known time. It was a branch of the early picture writing practiced by sav ages. In Tahiti, for Instance, the na tives were able to make fairly good maps for the guidance of explorers. Maps with raised lines were in use in Peru before the conquest. The oldest known map is that of the Ethiopian gold mines, dating from the time of Setbos 1., the father of Rameses TL, long before the time of Aristagoras and his bronze tablet, on which were Inscribed the circuit of the earth and all the seas and rivers then known. Wanted Results. A lady in a town in Scotland sent her servant over to the house of a sick neighbor. “Mrs. Smith,” said she, “sent me ower tae speir hoo yer hus band was this morning.” “Very bad, indeed. The doctor says he may die any minute.” was the reply. "Ah. weel,” said the woman. “I'll better wait a wee while. I’ve nae ither thing tae dae the noo.” Easy.

There is no more noted newspaper annual'than the MidwinterNumberof The Los Angeles Times, whose joyous issue for 1916 is just at hand. South ern California lias so many unique fascinations that a newspaper which reflects them is in a class by itself, and the “Midwinter” is so classified by everyone who sees it. It is made up of five beautiful magazines in addition to the usual news sheets. Five maga zines of thirty-two pages each, with art covers, all printed on tine book paper in bright colors. The art work is surpassingly fine and the text is .illuminating. One can visualize the charms of the Southwest by looking through this pleasing publication. It tells one everything he wants to know about the resources, prosperity and delights of the Southland—the climate, the crops, the industries, the habits of life and cost of living, the peculiari ties of each town and county, the financial conditions and business pros pects, tourist accommodations and openings for settlers. It is truthful and sincere as well as dressed in beau tiful garb. Gen. Otis does his State great service in issuing such a noble annual. Higher Than Pikes Peak. Ask any schoolboy to give the high est point in the state of Colorado, and nine out of ten will name l’ikes peak. Pikes peak is 14,110 feet above sea level, but there are many higher peaks In Colorado. Massive mountain, in Lake county, is one of the two highest points in the state, whose height has been determined by the United States geological survey and is 14.402 feet above sea level. Elbert mountain, in the same county, has the same eleva tion. Blanca peak, in Costilla. Heur fano and Saguache counties, is 14.390 feet high; Castle peak, in Gunnison and Pitkin counties, is 14.259 feet high; Evans mountain, in Clear Creek coun ty, 14.260 feet; La Plata peak, in Cha ney county, 14.332 feet; Quandary peak, in Summit county, 14.256 feet; Sau Luis mouutain, triangulation station, in Mineral and Saguache counties. 14,149 feet; Uncompahgre peak tri angulation station, iu Hinsdale coun ty, 14,306 feet, and Wilson mountain triangulation station, in Dolores coun ty, 14,250 feet—all higher than Pikes peak.—Geological Survey Bulletin. Expanding. The Old Friend—l understand that your practice is getting bigger. The Young Doctor—That's true. My pa tient has gained nearly two pounds in the last month. Contempt of Court.

Remedy your deficiencies and your merits will take care of themselves Bulwer. Trustful Humanity. Taken acutely ill in the midst of a long journey, we accept the ministra tions of a fellow traveler whom we have never seen before, but w’bo says that he is a physician. Even the pre scription given us by our family doc tor is liable to be filled by an un known compounding clerk, yet we sw’allow unquestionably whatever he hands us in bottle or box. We hail a passing cab to take us to our desti nation In the middle of the night, feel ing no alarm lest the driver be in league with a gang of footpads. We send our cash deposit to the bank by the hand of a messenger concerning whose virtues we have no guaranty beyond the fact that thus far we have not found him light fingered. We add our names to this and that petition on the say so of someone who may or may not, for all we are aware, have an ulterior and illegitimate interest in swelling his list, and we sign letters and other documents which we have only hurriedly skimmed over in their final draft and in which our tired copyist may have embalmed an error fatal to our purpose.— Atlantic. Differently Expressed. The same idea may be expressed In many different ways, according as the speaker’s mode of thought is influenced by his surroundings. Take, for example, a well known adage and notice how the residents of several cities would put it: “A bird in the hand is w’ortb two in the bush.” In Boston this might become: “One thought of Browning, thorough ly assimilated, is more valuable than two in a state of mental nebulosity ” The New York version: “Paper profits must be realized upon before they can add to one’s bank ac count.” Translated into Chioagoese: “One hog in the packing room and ready for market Is better than two on the hoof at the point of production.” Now go as far west as Denver: “It is the cashed chips that count.”— Puck. • PERSONALS.
