The condition of M. A. Hurley, who has been ill for the past four weeks, remains about the same. His many friends hope for an early and com plete recovery. This is trailing arbutus season and considerable was brought into the city the past week. It has been too cold up to this time and as yet the sweet spring flower is very scarce. The Chamber of Commerce urges that old stationary signs be discarded and something live in the electric line, be installed. A good idea. It will certainly add to the beauty of our city. Rain and snow fell all of Satur day night and much of the time Sun day, besides it was a regular wihter day—cold and disagreeable. Every body was counting on going into the country after trailing arbutus. The Fraternal Order of Eagles took possession of their newly pur chased property, the Ruder building, on the corner of Third and Jackson streets, Friday evening, and will soon begin new interior improvements in the premises. Mrs. E. B. Stoddard, who Ims ac commodated a large number of board ers at her home on Forest street, for some time, will close and rent her home about the middle of the month, much to the regret of all. Ijater she will go to Lost Lake to spend the summer. '. • * Charged with assaulting Leonard Mathwi- k. with the intent of doing great bodily harm. Herman Huehner fuss and Paul Luedtke of the town of Hamburg, were arraigned in Justice Larner’s court Thursday afternoon. The defendants’ preliminary examina tion was put over until next Monday, each giving a bail bond in the sum of S2OO for their appearance. Word has reached this city that a number of members of Cos. G, who are located at Ashland and vicinity, have not succeeded in passing final physical examination and are to be discharged from the company. Nothing definite, however, has been received here by Lieut. Drake, who is still at the arm ory, recruiting for the company, and who has eighteen assistants and appli cants awaiting orders to join the com pany. v The Wausau Telephone company has just received anew Ford truck to car ry its men to and from work and to transfer wire, tools, etc., to the coun try in extending the system. The com pany lias supplied the farming com munity adjacent with telephones and the area has grown so large that it requires several automobiles to at tend and facilitate the work. The company'has also purchased an auto trailer on which to transfer poles, etc. Alex Trester, a former resident of this county, blew into this city Thurs day morning. During the day he loaded up with intoxicants which put him in an aggressive mood in the even ing. When officers attempted to arrest him he put up a spirited fight, finally finding himself behind the bars of the city jail for the night. The next morn ing Trester was brought into munici pal court on a disturbance charge and was fined $50.1)0 or- sixty days in the county jail. Not being able to raise that sum he is undergoing the latter sentence. WEEKLY WEATHER FORECAST For the week beginning Sunday.

T fit state, } was to have spoken before the Rotary 'club in this city, on “American Citi- J zenship,” last Thursday evening, at I its regular monthly meeting, but he j missed the train in some way and dis i appointed many who had gathered to jhear him. Father J. B. Hauck, of St. Mary’s ] Catholic church had*, invited the club !to hold its dinner in "the ne w school I building of his congregation." • sixty Rotarians gathered and sat down I to a most excellent dinner served and i prepared by the ladies of the church. |At the close President Everest read the dispatch from Father Dunne, and also several communications, one of especial interest, from Company G, Wis. N. G., at Ashland. ■ The president stated that he had asked several Rotarians to n ake short talks along the lines of Father Dunne's topic, and called upon Judge A. H. Reid, A. L. Kreutzor, S. B. Tabey and Father Hauck. all of whom made stir ring patriotic addresses. The Columbia orchestra rendered patriotic music during the dinner Lour and songs dear to the hearts of every American were sung. I D. C. Everest and C. H. Hooker were chosen to attend the International convention to be held in Atlanta in June. A vote of thanks was extended to Father Hauck for the invitation to meet in the new school building of the church and to the ladles for the ex cellent- dinner provided. Many of the Rotarians had never been in the new parochial school build ing, and it was a revelation to them. They found, to their surprise, one of the finest school buildings in the city; very complete in all its arrange ments and much larger than was ex pected. Its substantial appearance ap pealed to all. being constructed of solid brick and concrete. The rich ness of its interior finishing; its elec tric lighting, heating and ventilating being of the most approved and up to date in existence. Its var ious class rooms, auditorium, club, dining and other rooms, corridors, etc., are large and extremely well lighted and complete in their appointments. The auditorium is 42xS0 feet, has a handsome stagV with appropriate scen ery and will comfortably seat 500 peo ple. The dining room in which dinner was served to the Rotarians is the same size as the auditorium and will also seat 500 people. It is a building which is a valuable addition to our city and one of which, not only St. Mary’s congregation, but the city at large, may justly feel proud.

The state of Wisconsin has organ ized what is known as the State Coun cil of Defense, with Governor E. L. Philipp at its head. To work in co operation with this, a County Council of Defense plan has been adopted and each of the 70 counties urged to as sist in this work of national defense. The following has been sent out by Mayor H. E. MarquaruL. “The people of Marathon county, represented in the assembly, do re solve as follows: There is established a County Coun cil of Defense, to assmt in doing all things necessary to bring about che highest effectiveness within our coun ty in the crisis now existing and to co-ordinate all our efforts with those of the State Council of Defense. The members of the council are as fol lows : - C. C. Yawkey—Representative of the manufacturing interests q| the coun ty. / ' f Alex Archie—Representative of la bor. * Ed. Gensmann—Representative of the farmers. Mrs. A. II Reid—Representative of the women’s clubs. Joseph F. Smith—Repfeseniiitive of the medical profession. ~ y H. G. Flieth—Representative of the bankers.

M The members of the council, on re* ceipt of notice of appointment, sham immediately assemble at the count* seat at a time and place to be fisej by the chairman and shall forthwi|R organize qnd select a secretary, w]fl| neecLoot be'a member of this councini Thgt.counc> shall appoint such ex-’ nerts, stenographers, clerks and other assistants as may be necessary. Such persons shall receive no compensa tion, but shall perform service for which they may be called upon as a patriotic duty and as their part in the national defense. The committee on county buildings of the county board shall provide for the council a suitable room in the court house at Wausau. . The council shall adopt such rules a‘nd regulations as may be necessary to carry out the purpose of its or ganization. It shall hate the right to form advisory or other committees from outside of its membership and may organize subordinate bodies for assistance in special investigations, either by service of experts, or by the creation of committees of specially qualified persons, and may form such committees from among its own mem bers as may be necessary and con venient. The council as soon as it is or ganized shall communicate at once with the State Council of Defense and oft'er its co-operation. It shall also get into communication with detet.se bodies representing other counties and shall co-operate with them as far as practicable. The council, after consultation with the State Council of Defense, shall gather at once through its commit tees or otherwise, statistics, facts and other information found necessary and shall arrange them in an orderly and accessible manner. It shall super vise and direct investigation in the county and make such recommenda tions to the governor as may be deemed advisable. When, in the opinion of the County Council, a serious scarcity of food, fuel or other articles of common ne cessity exists or threatens, or when in the opinion of the council un reasonable profits are being made in articles of common necessity, the council shall advise the governor and request him under authority granted by the law creating a State Council of National Defense to make provisions for necessary supplies of food, fuel and other articles of common neces sity to be controlled by the state and county officials in quantities sufficient to prevent distress among the peo ple and to prevent unreasonable and excessive profits.” APRIL SNOW STORM Last Wednesday morning, those who looked out of their windows at about five o’clock, witnessed a snow stonn, seldom equalled in the north. It was fierce. There was no wind, and the snow came down so rapidly, and in such large flakes, that one could not see ten feet ahead of him. During the early morning hours about ten inches of snow fell. More or less snow fell all Wednesday forenoon. It was slush, slush, slush, all day Wednesday and Thursday, and finally disappeared. Knowing ones say that such a storm is the poor man’s fertilizer and it will greatly advance the growth of every thing. Let us hope so. One new comer, on being asked, by another the question, “How many months of win ter do voi. have in this country, re plied. “I don’t know as I have only lived here eleven months and the end isn’t yet." But what do you think of this from the Merrill Herald, which must be true, coming from the source it does: “The heavy snow storm of today brings to the mind of Rev. J. G. Schliepsieck the fact that twenty-four years ago today, a snow storm of such great depth visited the state of lowa, his former home, that it was necessary to dig a tunnel in order to get the cat | tie out of the barns.” BABY WEEK CAMPAIGN Wausau will celebrate Baby Week ‘during the month of June this year, but not in such an elaborate way as I last year. A course of lectures and mothers’ conferences will be held in neighborhood meetings to be conduct ed throughout the city. The Baby I Week campaign this year will be | more along the idea of follow-up work, as the demonstration given last year gave everyone an excellent opportu nity of knowing what the work is jlike. The committee in charge of the work here think it unnecessary to bring children together publicly again this year as last, for the reason that | the demonstration was so well given last year, and it may also result in the spreading of disease. There are several cases of contagious diseases in the city now and infantile paraly sis is also a disease feared, there be ing a terrible epidemic last year throughout the country. Children will be examined as last year if so desireu, but not at a public gathering. It is planned to have a trained nurse or physician visit the mothers of small children during the month of June who will give instructions as to the care and health of babies. WAIJSAVI, WIS., TIJESp/IY, MAY I, in his new quarters A. M. Petersen is now in his new un dertaking rooms at 605 Thiid street. For the past month he has had carpen ters, painters and decorators at work, until now all is complete and he has the handsomest rooms north of Mil waukee. His storeys 24x70 feet. The front room is of mission finish wood work, while the color scheme is mot tled grey. This room is used for the display of his frames and pictures. He does all kinds of frame work and has a large stock of the latest styles to show his customers. Back of this room, which is also of mission finish and done in mottled grey and peacock blue, he has his office, and back of that his display of caskets. The show room is of mahogany woodwork and beautiful in two tone ivory. On either side of the room are cabinets running the whole length, with glass fronts, electrically lighted, in which caskets are shown and which contain those, equal to any that can be purchased anywhere. Curtains are arranged so that in a few moments the cabinets can be hidden from view and the room seated for funeral services. Opening out from this room in the rear is the morgue, which is done entirely in white enamel, and is very complete in all of its appointments. A basement, with concrete floors, the size of the store, gives Mr. Petersen ample room for the storage of goods and a work shop for making frames. The splendid lighting system is of the semi-in direct. ■ Mr. Peterson formerly occupied the store -;at 307 Jefferson street. HOTEL REGULATIONS The following changes in hotel regu lations have been made by the state ißghrd of health: i 4/ First ’ that all restaurants in cities, ■Ffllages and towns adjacent to a public Mjivver system and a public water sup a block through which a FtaifS&c... i'-hd water main extemL with a *>?ic in tin restaurant ** the proper -4iiaLifer fewer and wafer s: <- the useitff roller towel 9o|U placfaNs prohiMf 1 even though Aw] s are •jfWp plied in addill on wblife xftl’ "Third that are to be of suffieie ly cover the m a r & on both sides ana M# ary 1, 1918, both at least ninety-six inchejfiqifrjl liTer be ing laundered. / “Fourth, that after Jahtfary 1, 1919, the use of quilts and comforters on transient beds must be discontinued. “Fifth, that not later than July 1, 1917, all hotels and restaurants equipped with sewerage and running water must be provided with bubbling drinking fountains; when bubbling fountains cannot be installed, clean in dividual drinking cups or glasses for each guest must be supplied upon re quest.” MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS There was a meeting of the Agri cultural and Stock Breeders’ asso ciation of Marathon county held in Wausau last Saturday. It is organ ized with the following offices: President—H. G. Flieth, Wausau. Vice Pres.—Mi Baldwin, Marathon. Sec. —R. A. Humphrey, Wausau. Ass't Sec.—W. R. Chellis, Wausau. Treas.—A. H. Zimmerman, Wausau. It will be known as the “Marathon County Farm Bureau.” The purpose of the Bureau is to further good grains and stock, and to assist in disposing of the same, and to assist, generally, in the develop ment of Marathon county. There were many of the citizens of the city and county present, and it was voted that the presidents of the various stock and grain societies of the copnty be ex-officio members of the board of directors, unless such soci ety or societies choose to elect such a representative. Arrangements were made for by-laws to be presented at the next meeting. There will be an attempt made to make this a very large organization and it is hoped that its membership will reach 5000. With so large a number of the best men of our county, splendid results may be looked for. TO MASONS Tonight, at Masonic Temple, Prof. Charles Hunt is to give an illustrated lecture on the Yellowstone Park. He will describe and show pictures of numerous oddities to be seen in the Yellowstone park and will also show stereoptfeon views of scenic beauty in the west. That ail inferno exists underneath the surface of Yellowstone park is the word brought back from there by tourists. They base their opinion upon the incessant roll and chatter of the infinite hot water basins that abound in the park. Mud Geyser is among the most wierd of these formations. It throws up mud-colored water from within the rocks against a natural stone surface and has been doing so constantly 24 hours a day, winter and summer, since time immemorial. The noise it makes in going through its gyrations is deaf ening Ij visitors who stand close enough to see it play. The entertainment is given for Masons and their ladies and children over 15 years of age, by Forest Lodge, F. & A. M_ Admission free. Don’t •miss it. CLEAN I P DAY 1 — Mayor H. E. Marquardt has issued a proclamation designating the week commencing May 7th, as clean up week in Wausau. It should be the duty of every citizen during that week j to see that all debris on his premises is cleaned up and carted off to the dump. No doubt but what arrange ments will be made for teams, at a reasonable price to haul away the refuse. Keep in mind the week of May 7th. SELECTED THE RIGHT MAN At a meeting of the board of public works held in this city Thursday, Carl Lotz was selected as superintendent for the completion of the paving con tract on Grand avenue, the former con tractors failing to complete the job. Work is to begin as soon as circum stances permit and to be rushed to early completion. RAISING ANOTHER COMPANY C. A. Christian is making quite an effort to organize a second com pany of the Wisconsin National Guard in this city and he has begun to se cure signatures for the new organiza tion. He hopes to succeed in his en deavor, provided, however, that he can obtain, at once, the necessary number of volunteers and equipment to furnish them as he progresses. OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO.

DO YOU WANT HELP ON THE FARM] It looks as if there would be more ! land seeded by the farmers and others this year than ever before. On ac- j count of the war, labor will be scarce.! It is essential that every acre of ] ground planted should bring forth to i its utmost in order to bring this about, much help is* needed. If the farmers! of our county will organize and let it be known what help is necessary, the Pilot will do all it can to assist in se curing this help. There are all kinds of organizations in Wausau ready to enlist in this kind of work—that is to seeing that help is supplied; if there is not, there should be. If the farmers will make known their labor needs, the Pilot will publish same without cost. Let everybody co-op erate in this work of food production. U. S.

Last Tuesday evening just as the moon was creeping over the tree tops the rub-a-dub-dub of the drum was heard and the Wausau Light Guards and Germania Guards appeared on Third street on dress parade. Going through the different evolutions by moonlight was a spectacle that was grand to behold. The companies do themselves great credit at every pub lic appearance. * Mrs. A. Brown of Antigo jumped into the Wisconsin up near Leahy & Beebee’s mill on Thursday with suicid al intent. She was rescued by the mill crew. She was taken to her boarding place by Andrew Berry. Her husband had been arrested for burg lary and was rescued and released by the efforts of his wife. He went on a spree as soon as released and this discouraged his wife so that she tried to end her life.
