QCAITH FARM BARN DES TROVER BY FIRE Last Wednes'uiy morning, fire de i stroyed the large barn, silo and grain- I ery on S. M. Quaw's farm, northwest ;of the city. Besides the buildings i a blooded calf, five hogs, some oats, I poultry, fifteen tons of hay, a gasoline I milking machine and farm tools were destroyed; other live stock was saved. S. D. Wodwgrd is in charge of the .arm for Mr. Quaw and there were two other men, who were assisting in the work. They were aroused about 2 o’clock a. m., by the fire. l As it was, little could be done to ’ save the property. The fire attracted a crowd. The various fire depart ments veer' cn the ground quickly, u ;; 4 ** - ♦rvrv fat* uurnv to foonharf by our water system, and the dej>t>rc ttnent* rmighbciuiii good work with a bucket brigade in saving the residence, ice, wood and other build ing. . The iap.se of the fire is unknown. Outside of the use of the gasoline nilking machine, no fire had been in or about the buildings and the fire did not start anywhere near the machine. The loss is estimated at over SB,OOO, The property, including residence and other buildings, is covered by insur ance of $5,000, so this makes the loss a very heavy one. COAL SITUATION Wausau coal dealers are not expect ing there will be a serious coal short age in this vicinity next fall. Coal is coming to the city in small amounts and many people are stocking up with a supply for next winter. However, many experts have estimated that not more than 65 per cent of the usual quantity of coal will reach the head of the lakes from the east this year. If the car shortage can be remedied and cars placed where they are most needed, there need be no fear. A tremendous quantity of this fuel will be used by the government this year and it will of course be anthra cite. Little anthracite coal will be re ceived in this state later in the season. Poorer quality coal from Indiana, Illi nois and probably even some parts of the northwest will be used. SUNDAY SCHOOL PROGRAM A special Sunday School program was given at the First Presbyterian church Sunday in observance of Pa triotic or Red Cross Sunday. Appro priate music, recitations, etc., were giv en. Among those appearing on the program was Miss Jawort in a reci tation, “Old Glory.” Miss Sturtevant gave a brief talk on the work of the Rod Cross. The salute to the Chris tian flag was given as follows: “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Saviour for whose Kingdom it stands; one brotherhood, uniting all mankind in service and love.” The salute to the American flag was also given: “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. The boy scouts gave the bugle salute. A roll call of all who are serving or have listed as soldiers from the Presbyterian church was taken. An offering for the Red Cross work was taken up. It was a very interesting and impressive program. SPEEDERS LOOKOUT There Is a rumor that automobile speeders will be called on soon to make large contributions which go towards helping pay the running ex penses of some of our adjoining towns and the city of Wausau. Police men with stop watches are going to be stationed where speeders can be watched and those running above the limit prescribed by law are to be hauled up and fined Our advice is to go slow. MARATHON COUNTY FAIR Despite the tremendous pressure on the individual and the critical inter est which is being developed in other than local affairs by the war, it is hoped to make the Marathon county fair a big attraction and success. The fair is scheduled for August '2B, 29, 30 * and 31, just a week earlier than usual. Though at the present time crops are two to three weeks be hind, a month of warm weather, with good rains will make conditions most favorable. We should all co-operate to continue a local exhibition such as this. i* 1 WAUSAU'S CHAUTAUQUA Begins July 11 and Ends July 16— A Splendid Program Assured.

IL 1L WILLIAMS CHOSEN SECRE TARY OF RACE CIRCUIT A special meeting of the members of the Central Wisconsin Fair Circuit was called for last*Friday evening by President G. A. Mills of Wausau, for the purpose' of completing the details of the several programs, and selecting a successor as secretary to the late W. A. Gething of Stevens Point.

Last Saturday was the last day of volunteer enlistments and new draft ing is in order for the selection of eligibles and exemption of those hav ing a valid reason for their not be ing drawn to help fill the ranks of the nation. SAYNER RESORT ADDS COTTAGE The O. W. Sayner resort on Plum lake, the oldest resort on any of the lakes in the vicinity of Sayner, Wis., has added a very attractive and modern five room cottage to its build ings. It is a great improvement, and is wonderfully attractive, set as it is among countless giant pines. During the past several years there have been several improvements on Plum lake, which have made it and the Sayner resort a most popular place. A lawn tennis court has been completed at the resort, within walk ing distance of the Plum lake golf course. Many enthusiasts of that game are now stopping at the Sayner rpsort. The course is in most excel lent condition at the present time considering that it was laid out only several years ago. Fishing remains a constant pleasure afid competent guides are always on hand to take the outer about. A golf tournament is to be held at Plum lake in August, in which it is expected that a large number of Wau sau enthusiasts will participate as in the past several yea-s. Mr. Sayner recently stated that he had already reserved a large number of rooms for people who are intending to at tend the tournament, and that any persons, who wish reservations will have to apply very soon for them. OUT IN IDAHO C. C, Rylander & former resident who is now residing in Lewiston, Idaho, says: “We are having real warm weather here at present and crops of all kinds are doing well. The fruit crops will be very large this year. Some cherries are already ripe and hundreds of pickers are em ployed in the orchards just out of Lewiston. Lewiston is a very beauti ful place, but to me it doesr'c com pare with Wausau, and I still have hope that some day I will be able to arrange things so that I can come back to stay.” MEETINGS AT STATIONS The regular weekly baby meetings were held on Wednesday and Thurs day at the Lincoln and Franklin sta tions. At the Wednesday meeting there were twenty-three babies and twenty-eight mothers. Dr. W. A. Green addressed the mothers in the absence of Dr. C. R. Gough. Refresh ments were served. There were sixteen babies and eighteen mothers at the Thursday meeting in the Franklin building. Dr. D. T. Jones talked to the mothers. The gathering enjoyed refreshments dur ing the afternoon. There will be no Wednesday meet ing on account of the Fourth of July, but the Thursday meeting will be held as usual. At least one more meeting will be held at each station. SIOO Reward.

TREVITT TALKS AT BAND STAND In addition to the band concert of last Friday evening naval pictures were shown on the Third street side of the court house. Several thousand persons were attracted to listen to the concert and to hear the address by Dr. A. W. Trevitt in explanation of the naval pictures as they • were thrown on the screen. - - Dr. Trevitt made an earnest ap peal to the young men of the city to enlist in the navy and to stand back of Uncle Sam. He praised very high ly the way in which the government looks after the health, cleanliness, physique and morals of men engaged in this service. It was noticed that last Friday even there were a large number of farmers from the immediate vicinity of the city in town. This is exactly the type of entertainment which is needed more often and regularly to attract our neighbors to the city. BUSINESS COLLEGE NOTES E. D.

Ryan has entered into part nership with Silverthorn & Hurley in the law business. A. C. Clark. C. V. Bardeen and C. F. Eldred, who nave lately been sojourn ing in Oshkosh, came home overflow ing with praises for the Oshkosh Bus iness Men’s association, an institu tion which seems to be doing a world of good in the way of sociability for that city. The above named gentle men have imparted their feelings, to a certain extent, to the business men of Wausau and the time seems ripe to agitate and start such an institution here. The Oshkosh association was founded in March 1881, and it has been so ably managed that there has been no lack of interest from the start. A business men’s association is sadly needed in Wausau, and the matter ought to be thoroughly worked up and brought to a focus.

Mrs. McCrossen hearing someone at the door, awakened Dennis Smith, a lad about fourteen years of age, who was sleeping in one of the upper rooms. Dennis came down armed with a revolver, and bravely opened the front door, stepped out onto the porch, and sent a leaden messenger nfter two men who were “humping” them selves to get out of the yard. The bullet failed to do any damage as far as heard from, but it was a brave act on the part of the boy.

Love Finds a Way " Speaking of my aunt’s home brings to mind old memories, mostly insig nificant, yet I am minded to recall this one: Back of my uncle's farm in the woods, in a rude log cabin lived an old man by the name of Grubb. No one seemed to know how he lived as he was seldom seen at w ork. He used to come to my aunt’s house, always with a little pail for skim milk; stayed an hour or so to read the newspaper he could not afford to take, and if asked, rarely refused to eat a meal. When we heard that he had found a wife and brought her home, it was prophesied that she would have rather a dull time, for “no one could be much who would marry an old man like Mr. Grubb.’’ My aunt Sarah was one of the best of women in her way. She gave liber ally to the church and especially to foreign missions. She kept the min ister’s folks in butter and eggs as well as garden products, but for her poor neighbors, “the outsiders,” she had not much use. N With my mother it was different. She had a way of putting herself in the place of any sad, neglected ones and doing good without money. It was she who suggested to her sister( my aunt, Sarah) that they go and visit the new comer. I remember the day for I was entrusted to get the dinner at home, all alone. I never saw Mrs. Grubb but once. She came on hearing of my mother’s death. Evidently her offer of help was ig nored by the neighbors down stairs, for she came up to ask me if there was anything she could do. One glance showed me a kindly face, and a strong character, not swift to take offense. I’m afraid I did not even thank her. I’ve regretted it many times. Soon we all moved away, and it was some years before I saw my home town again. I expected to find a neglected grave; instead it showed some one’s care, and a white rose bush blossorr f ’. at its head. Who planted it?
