BECAUSE THIS INSTITUTION CAN NOT DIE OR GET SICK —and because it will not resign or move from the city, are the chief reasons you should em ploy il instead of an individual to manage your estate. Consult our officers on this matter. Wisconsin Valley Trust Company Wausau, Wisconsin MARATHON COUNTY TRAINING SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT EXERCISER The usual capacity house was on hand last Thursday evening to hear and see the eighteenth annual com mencement exercises of the Marathon County Training school at the High school auditorium. • The exercises opened with the invo cation by Rev. Donald S. West, as sociate pastor of the First Presbyter ian church, followed by a song by the graduating class, “My Own America I iwove But Thee.” The class play, “A Vision of the Home Land,” was then presented, and was as enjoyable a home talent pro duction as one could wish to see. The characters in the play had been skill fully trained, and presented it with notably good interpretation and excel lent spirit. The purpose of the play was to deliver a message which might aid in solving the problem pf the socialization of country life.

Member of School Board Fred Prehn In School Pageant. Yonug Actors do Good Work Harold Krueger as Webster Worth, principal of Hope Consolidated school handled his difficult role with much ability. Miss Florence Verkeilen, was a strong character and showed a rare interpretation of her part as Mary Clayton, college woman and commun ity worker. The part of Mrs. Clayton, mother to Mary Clayton, was taken most ably by Miss Elsa Jahnke. Clar ence Nohr effectively presented the character of Hiram Stephens, farmer and president of the school board. Nancy Stephens, wife to Hiram Steph ens, was taken with signal ability by Agnes Omholt. Richard Horan as Emmet Stephens, Hiram Stephen's son, gave a good presentation of the char acter. The role of Eric Swenson, Mr. Stephen’s hired man, was taken to gTeat advantage by Martin Beilke. Miss Margaret Dallman delighted the Andience with the part of Sally Peter son. High School Girl. Fritz Swartz, member of ihe school board, was im personated by Fred Prehn with evi dent ease. The school pageant included some very fine dancing and singing. Eight girls represented corn; eight girls filled the part of milk-maids; eight girls represented potatoes; sixteen girls were patriotic maidens. Follow ing the work by the patriotic maidens a patriotic song was very well given by the entire class. Special mention cannot be made of each one taking part in the pageant, on account of the large number. The work of the young ladies in the pageant was beautifully done and all deserving of much praise. Appropriate costumes and beautiful scenery was used throughout and also very attractive. The faculty members in charge of the exercises are deserving of much credit for the marked success of the commencement program. Hon. A. L. Kreutzer presented the graduating class with their diplomas, and made a pleasing talk in connec tion. showing the value of education, and complimenung the class. This was followed by the singing of “The Star Spangled Banner." in which the audience also joined. The benedic tion was given by Rev. E. C. Grauer. AH in all, briefly told, the exercises reflected very favorably upon the work of the students and the faculty pf the school. The alumni program took place Friday evening at Rothschild park pavilion, and account of which is giv en elsewhere in this issue. Graduating t lmss Esther L. I.ipke Elizabeth C.

Phone No. 1032 WAUSAU, WIS. 616 Third Street WATCH FOR CUTWORMS— SEASON IS HERE Suggestions for Prevention and ex termination of Destructive Pests It is about time for the appearance of cutworms in alfalfa fields and gar dens, and we may expect no little damage from them. Under ordinary conditions, preven tion is the best remedy. This may be easily accomplished by plowing, discing or harrowing late in the fall or early spring. Cutworm damage may be prevented in gardens by placing a piece of stiff paper in the form of a cylinder about the plant, allowing the upper edge to extend at least two inches above the surface of the ground. In areas where the worms are concentrated, an ap plication of arsenic bait will prove very effective. A good formula is as follows: Paris green 1 %lb Bran 50lb. Syrup lqt. Water 2 gals. Mix, while dry, the Paris green and bran until an even color is attained. Then stir in the syrup and water, making a crumbly, but not sloppy, mash. Scatter this mixture thinly over the infested areas late in the afternoon or early in the evening. The amount to be used will vary in accordance with the severity of the attack. Twenty-five pounds will be, in all probability, sufficient to cover an acre.—Chas. R. Jones, Colorado Agricultural College, Fort Collins, Colorado. EXTEND POWERS OF COUNCILS OF DEFENSE Broad powers are given to the state council of defense in bill 648-A, which has just passed the legislature, and if the machinery provided for in this bill is utilized, the state of Wisconsin will be amply protected against any extortion as regards the necessities of life. The bill gives to the state council of defense the right to sieze bread stuffs, coal and other necessities of life, if the prices charged for such necessities are considered exorbitant. The bill passed the assembly some weeks ago, but was amended in the senate by Senator Wilcox, with an im portant amendment, which provides the machinery by which ihe council of defense, if it considers that prices for necessities of life are too high, can make inquiry and, if the result shows too high prices are being charged, can make the seizures and then distribute the necessities under such terms as the council may see fit. The bill gives the state council of defense the power to seize ware houses and docks for the storage of such necessities, and provides ample machinery if it is thought that they are in the interest of the public. SEW BUILDING Work will be started next week on the erection of a large three-story building to be used, when completed, by the Marathon Motor Car com pany. local distributors of the Ford automobile. The building will be erected on and adjoining the site where the present Ford garage is located. The first load of rock for the foundation of the building was delivered yesterday. The building will have a frontage of seventy-five feet and will be fifty one feet deep. It will be constructed of stone and cement and will have a twelve inch solid brick wall. The increased business of the Mar athon Motor Car company has necessitated greatly increased quar ters and the new building will give them adequate space for work rooms and show rooms.—Merrill Herald. AUCTION SALE Live stock and farm implements will be offered for sale at the farm of Christ Volkman. Schofield, Wednes day. June 27. at 10 o'clock in the fore noon. Mr. Volkman has sold his farm and will sell without reserve and at public auction all horses, cows, swine, wagons, implements, tools etc. Sale will be held rain or shine.

The weather man was considerate this time, and a bunch of willing workers turned out in the morning and labored until night cut ting brush, chopping trees, loading and carting away the refuse and under brush that fell prey to the workmen’s axes. The progress was somewhat hampered by a lack of teams, and a few more workers would have helped matters along somewhat, but from a canvass of the community it is appar ent that about everyone turned out who could possibly get away from their accustomed duties. The boy scouts were on hand early and con tinued their mite to the cause, and by the way, this was no small amount either. Dinner was served in the grove by the ladies’ cemetery association, and after dinner the ladies got busy with the brush and helped the men folks along. While not as much was ac complished as had been hoped for, still a most creditable showing was made, and another day of this kind of work will put the park in first class shape for the purpose it is intended for.—Mosinee Times. FOURTH OF JULY The State Council of Defense has given out that there should be a good, old fashioned Fourth of July celebra tion in every city and village in Wis consin ; that this should be under the auspices of the municipal and town governments. The council says that there should be very little expense, but to get together in some appropriate place; have patriotic speeches, music and make it a day that will advance patriotism among the young and old. The Marathon County Council of De fense has made known the wishes of the state council to the mayor of our city and to every town and village in the county. Why not have a rousing celebration at the fair grounds; appoint enough committees to take charge; charge no admission; sell concessions for eata bles, soft drinks,pop corn,candy; have a merry-go-round, and such other things as are necessary, and this will pay for the music and other expenses. Let the people all turn out; have their picnic lunches on the grounds; have a num ber of speakers and the reading of the declaration of independence at sever al places on the grounds at the same time. All this would take an hour and leave the balance of the day for games and a geneial good time. All to end with fire works in the evening. Anyway, committees could work out such a program as they desired. Let’s be up and doing. RED (ROSS WEEK President Wilson has sei aside this week as Red Cross week. June sth 10,000,000 American men enrolled for war service. Many of us have not had that honor. Let, us enroll in the army of mercy—the Red Cross, and assist in this worthy ministration. Our hus bands, brothers and sons suffer sick ness, wounds and death and we must minister to their sufferings. Let every citizen be a Red Cross member, pay SI.OO and do his bit for his or her country. Pay $5, $lO, S2O, according to his or her means. Join now and save a soldier’s life. While the government grants allow ances for the families and depend ents of soldiers, thousands of cases will arise where additions or special aid must be given. To all these the Red Cross must extend a helpful nand. There will be sickness to combat at home; even hunger to be appeased, special nursing cases to be looked af ter, and the furnishing of a thous and and one necessities which, in war time, become luxuries. The Red Cross needs $1000,000,000 because the Red Cross must stand be hind the man behind the gun. TAKEN HOSPITAL Frank Krautkramer of the town of Marathon was taken to the State Hos pital for the insane at Oshkosh yester day. He had shown symptoms of men tal derangements for some time and was brought to Wausau for examina tion before the county judge Monday night. Undersheriff Abraham started Wednesday noon to take him the state hospital, Mrs. Krautkramer ac companying them. At Eland he man aged to elude them and to escape into the woods. A search through the woods and swamps all afternoon for the unfortunate man proved of no avail, but Thursday morning he ap peared again at Eland of his own ac cord and was brought to Oshkosh by the undersheriff. Jonn Krautkramer of this place thinks that the derange ment of his mind was caused a year ago when he was building anew barn and fell down from the roof, landing on a pile of stones and sustaining some fractured ribs and other serious injuries.—Marathon Times. CROWS AFTER THK CORN Crows give our farmers consider able trouble at this time of the year. They are after the corn: when it comes through the ground they swarm down on a corn field and make short work of it. One farmer says that the crows cleaned up every bit of ground that he had planted within a few morn ings. Later he planted another lot of corn and when it came up he took his shot gun and went out to watch at daylight in the morning. Very soon a large number of the birds swooped down ready for business. A few well directed shots killed a number of them. He went out the next morning and he discovered one crow watching the field from a large tree. The lone sentinel gave the signal that no one was in sight and they came again and were treated with another dose of shot He took one of the dead birds and hung it up and he had no further trouble. This year he has had to go through the same performance. Complaints of the crow nuisance is heard from every part of the county. NEW MARRIAGE LAW According to anew marriage law passed by the present legislature, the county clerk must immediately upon receiving an application for a mar riage license, post the same in a con spicuous place in the court house for five days. Within that time any one who knows of a valid objection to the marriage may go to the county judge and obtain an order to show cause why the license should not be granted: If no objection is made during the five days, or if the objection is made, but not sustained by the court, the license may be issued and the couple may be married at once. This new law makes It more stringent for those desiring to enter into matrimony. WAliSAli, WIS. ( TiiESPAY, JUNE 19, 1917. INTERESTING LETTER FROM AUSTRALIA The following letter was received the past week by Mrs. A. B. Murray of this city, from New South Wales. Under the present conditions, it is of great interest to every reader of the Pilot: Bank of New South W r ales, Gundagai, New South Wales. May 5, 1917. My dear Mrs. Murray: No doubt you will be quite surprised to receive a letter from me after so long a silence, but life for every one now days is a rush, and letter writing goes to the wall. Note the above address. Four months ago I accepted a position in the bank as above. I felt that every woman ought to try and fit herself in some way to relieve a man if pos- and the junior and intermediate positions can be filled by a woman as well as a man, so I am now a bank clerk. At first I felt an absolute im becile as I knew nothing of office work, and had done absolutely no add ink up or figures of any kind since leaving school, however, with practice I am improving, and flatter myself, am making good. This is a small town in the south ern part of New South Wales, on the banks of the Murrumbidgee, one of our best rivers. Rivers, of course, in this country are not what they mean in America. The surrounding country is hilly and very pretty. Some day I will try and send you a few snap shots I have taken. Photography is another thing there isn’t much time for. Every one I know appears to have more to do than they can manage. The autumn here is very dry, the farmers are not able to plow and sow the wheat. Europe will be wanting next year. Also in the wheat districts we are having a frightful plague of mice. They are in millions everywhere. Tn walking through the one sees them scuttling about through the grass and the people catch hundreds in their houses every night. The ordin ary trap does not meet the case. All sorts of contrivances are arranged for catching ther.i wholesale. They are ruining all jf the wheat, and the farm ers say is fast as they sow it, it is eaten out of the earth. They get in to the stores tnd destroy the foods; get into the tanks and water supplies and drown in hundreds. Altogether if they continue, it will become a -ser ious menace. Today we got word of the torpedo ing of the transport Arcadian in the Mediterranean. The submarining is increasing in a most alarming manner. Surely soon some way of meeting this dangerous and awful warfare will be evolved. I can’t bear to think of the fighting on the western front. Both my brothers are there. The elder one enlisted in August, 1914, and had no furlough after leaving Australia in October, 1914, until last March, when he had a fortnight in London. How he did enjoy it. The first time he had slept in a double sheeted bed since he was home on final leave! He was right through Gallipolli, landing and evacuation, and so far has not been wounder. He is a “Bolubr,” in the field artillery. The younger brother has been gone a year and was not nine teen when he left He had a period '->1 training in England before going to France. We must hope that Amer ica’s intervention will be of great as sistance. The internal disruption in Russia means the Germans are able to concentrate so strongly on the western front I fear industrial strife everywhere. Today is election day for the Fed eral government. You know we have both state and federal (or common wealth) Parliaments. In the state election last month, a national govern ment was returned with a strong ma jority. The nationalist party is the one which intends putting “win the war” first, and I hope today’s figures will be another victory. The other party says we have done all we can, and is composed almost entirely of labor unionists, who preach this is not Australia’s war. After the bravery and splendid heroism of those who have fought so splendidly it makes one mad to have to admit them fel low Australians. One does not seem to be’able to write of anything but war, I suppose because our minds are ob sessed with it. Well, dear Mrs. Mur ray, I hope you and yours are safe and well, and I hope to hear again from you some day. TELEPHONE EXTENSIONS The Wausau Telephone company is just now at work making large ex tensions to their lines in the country and by fall will have over twenty miles of new lines, taking in the far mers along such extensions. Up in the town of Texas it Is pro posed to go north from Nutter's to which the lines now run, to Kennedy’s corner, east to Jacob Holzem’s place, and north from Kennedy’s farm, a dis tance altogether of about two miles. It is also intended to complete from the Texas creamery, north across Trappe river a distance of about five miles, and extend the line from Duncan’s farm north to Trappe, a distance of five miles. It is also proposed to extend lines in the town of Stettin and in the Rib hill district about five miles altogether. Crews of men are going out daily to work on these extensions and the pa trons of the company will be enabled to reach nearly all of the farmers about Wausau within a’radius of ten, or more, miles. KILLED HIMSELF Frank M. Bemis, who went to the Northern Hospital from this city, about fifteen years ago. to take a position of engineer, killed himself at that institution on Saturday night. June 9th. He was 45 years of age and was a very faithful and highly es teemed man. There had been some trouble with the machine on account of wear, and he had worried over thinking perhaps the board of con trol would blame him, but this was not the case. He was noted for his devotion to his family. He had gone to a part of the building, where he could get hot water, to shave, and no doubt, obeyed a sudden impulse to take his life. He leaves a wife and three children. Fifteen years ago he was night watch at the Marathon County asylum. His wife is a daughter of Michael Neuman, of Stevens Point How’s This!
