WHAT THE STATE COMMISSION
SAYS AROUT OUR WATER
WORKS SYSTEM
Some time ago the Rotary club of
Wausau secured the services of well
known engineers to make a report on
our city watoi works, at a large cost
which was met Iv subscriptions from
our business men. Avery exhaustive
report was furnished telling what
should be done to give the city a pure,
clean water supply and adequate fire
protection, but the cost to make the
desired changes would amount to up
wards of $300,000. This report was
turned over to the city council for
consideration and it was in turn sub
mitted to the state railroad commis
sion for its opinion. The mayor, the
past week, received a long communica
tion from the commission which really
gives no valuable ideas on the situa
tion. That is, the commission did not
seem able to state definitely what
should be done to give us the relief
for which we are seeking. All inter
ested have known for the past twenty
five years that there was a growth in
our system produced by a large per
centage of iron in the water supply;
they have also known that in order to
get relief it would be necessary to se
cure a supply of water that was free
from iron or so little iron that it would
not produce the growth We also
knew that the mains should De cleaned
out. The question is, what shall be
done? The Chicago engineers have
told us what to do. Perhaps, they
can eliminate some of the unnecessary
things and bring the cost down to fit
the'pocketbook of the city.
The advice' from the commission
amounts to about this:
Hire a competent engineer to get out
detailed plans of the situation.
Increase the capacity of the water
supply wells.
Better treatment of the water to pre
vent the growth of crenothrix.
Strengthen the distributing system.
Mechanical cleaning of the present
mains.

Freuerick Jawort, w’ho has been ill
for several years, and confined to his

March 24th, at 8 o’clock p. m.
Mr. Jawort was one of our oldest
and best known citizens, having resid
ed here for fifty years, .most of that
time being actively engaged in busi
ness. He was ever industrious, ac
commodating, cheerful, ontomistic and
made lasting friends of all with whom
he came in contact. He did much for
our city in his quiet way, caring little
for notoriety. During his life time he
was the builder and owner of four

corner of Scott and Second streets,

second by Ed. Kuhlman; the third, by
Joseph Columbo, and the fourth,’ Wm.

Colombo and Pier.
Frederick Jawort was born in Ger

his age was, therefore, 74 years. He
gained his education and learned his
trade as wagon maker in the old
country and served three years in the
army before coming to the United
States in 1867. He came directly to
Wausau and was engaged by August
F. Lemke in his wagon shop which was
conducted so many years opposite the
old city hall' on Washington street.
I ate.- he built a blacksmith and wagon
shop on Scott street which he has
conducted since 1875, building up a
splendid business and accumulating a
comfortable fortune.
He was united in marriage to Mary
Hoeft in this city, in the fall of 1867,
and to them eleven children were born,
seven of whom survive him. as also
does his widow. The children are:
Richard, of this city; William of Mil
waukee; Ferdinand. Centerville. Wis.;
Otto. Glendive. Mont.; Frank. Spo
kane, Wash.; Mrs. Alma Lazare, Cleve
land. Ohio, and Mrs. E. F. Graff of

SOCIETY ITEMS
Social Gatherings of the Past Week
In Wausau and Vicinity
For Pilot Readers.
Next Sunday is Palm Sunday and the
following Sunday is Easter, which
comes on the eighth of April. The
Lenten season has been one of un
usual quiet this year. Society hias
been at a standstill and every
body has seemed contented to stay at
home. Many have conscientiously
kept Lent as a religious duty in ab
staining from social life apd giving
attention to more serious things. Oth
ers have seemed to enjoy the rest and
quiet that the season brings. ’Certain
it is that people have kept more close
ly at home and more in touch with
things that are worth while than is
usual at this time. Many have de
voted a good share of their time to vis
iting and helping the sick and needy.
For the past few weeks a group of
ladies have sewed faithfully for the
wounded soldiers in foreign hospitals.
In fact the spirit of the times and the
unsettled condition of our country in
duces serious thought and earnest
work, even thought it were not Lent.
The terrible storms that have en
gulfed Uo during the past month, have
put a “stay at home” aspect on things
in general and kept people in their
homes. Then, too, sickness has come
to many homes, bringing its usual care
and worry. All things combined have
made the season an unusually seri
ous one. Easter programs are now
being rehearsed in the different
churches, and many are interested in
Easter preparations. Let us hotfe that
the day will dawn bright and beauti
ful, and that it may bring to all a full
measure of happiness and peace.
