FIRST WEEK OF THE LIBERTY LOAN Every Fart of the County Being Worked and Nearly a Half Has Already Been Subscribed For. The first week of the campaign for the sale of $1,200,000 worth of Liberty Loan bonds in Marathon county has resulted in the building up of a won derfully effective organization, one that will reach every line of 'indus try and which will extend to the most remote parts of the county, and al though the time so far has been de voted to the building up of the or ganization, the work of taking sub scriptions, and which up to this time have been almost wholly voluntary, has been put under active headway by a few of the organized campaign com mittees, with the result that approxi mately $400,000 had been subscribed up to yesterday morning. The subdivisions which are now carrying on the campaign in the city, and as appointed by Chairman Zim merman. are as follows: 4- H. Reid —Boy Scouts. S. B. Tobey—Schools. F. P. Stone—Churches. Wards Ist—E. K. Schuetz. 2nd—L. C. Leak. 3rd—J. X. Manson. 4th—John Lull. sth—D. J. Williams. '• 6th —Fat Burns and E. A. Hochtritt. 7th—C. H. Hooker. Bth—H. Pagenkopf. 9th—H. Elienbecker.

Schuler, Wm. Xachti gal. The organization of the western part of the county, which has been in i harge of Chairman Chellis and Sec retary Berger has been practically eompleted and every town and village 'organized. On Saturday evening three rousing rallies were held at Edgar. Fen wood and Marathon, at which places ad dresses were made by A. L. Kreutzer, E. P. Gorman and Fred W\ Genrich. Tne feature of these rallies was not only the large attendance from the surrounding farming districts, but the •’manimous and outspoken expressions 'of loyalty, and the liberal manner in which Liberty Loan bonds were sub scribed for. On Monday evening big rallies were held at Athens and Milan. The for mer meeting was by request address ed by Secretary H. 0. Berger, cashier of the Marathon County bank. The meeting at Milan, was addressed by C. G. Krueger, assistant cashieY of the First National bank. The principal reason for the apne-'„ t ance of these two gentlemen on the rostrum is that they are both representatives of the banking interests and the farmers at these places were especially anxious for assurance of the soundness of Überty Loan bonds as an investment, anil desired to receive this informa tion from that class of men with whom they are wont to carry on their cfdinarv financial transactions. Both speakers are credited with having made strong and impressive talks and to have gi* n the Liberty Loan bonds a boost in both communities. The first public meeting to be held in the city of Wausau was that con ducted under the auspices of Organ ized Labor at the city hall on Fri day evening last, and which was ad dressed by 0. B. Bird, chairman of the County Council of Defense. Arrangements have been oerfected for a monster mass meeting to be held in the village of Mosinee on Thursday eveuing. and at. which time Secretary H. C. Merger will deliver an address teliing why these bonds are viewed so favorably by the hank ers and why every bank in Marathon is standing solidly behind the com mittee in charge of the sale of Liberty 1 oan bonds. • Other rallies will be held tonight. Tuesday, at Colby, whefe A. L. Kreut zer will speak; at Spencer, where speeches will be delivered by C. T. Ed gar and J. L. Kelley; and at Unity, where Frank P. Regner will speak on the reasons why everyone should subscribe for Liberty Loan bonds to the extent of his ability. Other rallies will be held on Wed nesday at Elderon by R. E. Puchner: at Hatley by J. Okoneski. and at Nor rie by J. P. FMrd. The work of organizing the differ- j ent towns in the eastern part of the county has now been taken up by: Chairman Chellis. who met in con ference with many of the leading far- j mers from these towns on Saturday la-st and arranged with them for the ‘to!ding of rallies similar to those now in progress in the western part of the county and which will W? held about Thursday of this week. Sour stomach sat slowly, masticate your food thor oughly, abstain from meat for a few Jays and in most cases the sour stom ach will disappear. If it does not. take one of Chamberlain s Tablets im meuiately after supper. Red meats are most Ukely to cause sour stomach and you may find it best to cut them out.

It was voted to observe a meatless and a wheatless day each week, in all the logging camps of the members of the association, and that notice be given ot this action to each member. Many camps have already set aside a meatless and wheatless day, anil as there are fully Ith) camps operated by the members, it will be Quite an item in the conservation of those products. An adjournment was taken until one o’clock and those present par took of a dinner served at the Hotel Beilis. There was a general discussion of questions pertaining to logging camps and other business transacted along those lines. The meeting was adjourned to Xov. 6. 1917. ' CONSULTING* E N GIN EE RS The popular firm of consulting en gineers, Vaughn & Meyer, with of fices now in Milwaukee, Minneapolis and St. Paul, have just established an office ih this city at the Hotel Beilis, for the purpose of serving not only the large concerns by whom they are already retained, but also, to fill the great demand for engineering services prevalent in this progressive terri tory. Mr.* Vaughn and their Milwaukee general manager. Philip Grossn an. spent considerable time in V au sau completing arrrangements and es tablishing Loren L. Hebbard. who will act as the local manager, in these new quarters. Mr. Hebbard, who was taken from the Milwaukee office, has proven to be one of the ablest mechanical en gineers in th>' profession. Lately, he has spent most of his time in -con nection with the Marathon Paper Mills company’s new construction; the Wisconsin Valley Electric company; Swarthout & Speer, architects, and the Wausau Sulphate & Fibre com pany. Their recent new contracts and pros pective clients will make it necessary for Mr. Grossman to devote much of his time to this office, and call upon other engineers of the organization to render their expert assistance. The magnitude of the firm of Vaughn & Meyer, who have been in the consulting engineering field for several years, is shown by their steady expansion. Their ability to serve the public aud industrial corporations has beeen proven through some of their work, where they have beauti fied highways and public places, where they lightea cities with the most mod ern. ornamental and efficient street lighting system, and in constructing, remodeling, and managing our large industrial concerns on a more econom ical'basis. The Minneapolis and St. Paul offices are under* the name of Chas. L. Pills bury company, and are in charge of Hans J. Meyer, partner of F. A. Vaughn. The organization includes special j ists in all branches of engineering and is abiv prepared to serve their present and future clients, in the de sign and construction of power plants, hydro-electric developments, industri al power installation, paper mills, heating and ventilating, illuminating, and in fact ali branches of mechanical ; and electrical engineering.

LaDu, president of the vil lage. in regard to forming a local or ganization there to take care of the sale of Liberty Loan Bonds, and met with a most cordial reception. These parties have agreed to call a meeting and form a working organization that will show that Mosinee is a pretty big spot on the map. when it comes to going down into their pockets and backing up the government. It developed incidentally at this meeting that the amount already sub scribed in that village by the two banks and individuals, and this with out solicitation, was within a few dollars of the quota apportioned to that village. The indications are that Mosinee will more than double its quota. Mr. LaDu and the other gentlemen also volunteered to assist in the or ganization branch working organiza tions at Haider and Knowlton, and to undertake the preliminary work for big rallies to be held. LARGE INSTITUTION' FOB MARATHON The order of the Capuchin Fathers, which is now at Milwaukee, has de cided to move its institution to Mara thon. It is a school where students of the order finish their studies for the. priesthood, which is a six years’ course. The Marathon Times says: ‘‘Several sites were offered and were taken into-v consideration. That the choice finally fell upon Marathon was due no doubt to the beauty of our landscape and climate as weil as to the efforts of Rev. W. Daniels and the cordial way by which the proposition was received by the members of St. Mary's congregation and their willing ness to assist in the erection of the building by way of assisting in the work of excavating, or in hauling sand and stone. A building committee of the order represented by the Rev. Father Antd nin Wilmer of Detroit. Mich.. Provin cial of the order, and Rev. Roger Gans, a member of the faculty of St. Law rence college of Mont Calvary. Wis., was here during the past week and made arrangements for the prelimin ary steps for the erection of the insti tution. Forty acres of land located di rectly east of the village were pur chased from John Seubert and the new clericate.as the institution is called, be tween the road and the river on the east side of the forty, an ideal site, in deed, for an institution of this kind. A special meeting was held at St. Mary’s church after high, mass Sunday forenoon and the Rev. Capuchin Fath ers were very much gratified by the many expressions of appreciation and willingness to assist in the construc tion of the new institution in the manner mentioned above, i.e., by haul ing sand and stones and in excavating the basement. Architect H. T. Liebert of Wausau, who also drew up the plans for the beautiful new parochial school cf St. Mary’s congregation at Wausau, has been engaged to draw the plans for the building. When finished the building will form a rectangle of 170x150 feet, all sides being forty feet wide, with a large court in the center. For the time being, only two sides will be complet ed with a short third side to be oc cupied as a chapel. The excavation for the building will be started at once and sand and stones for the basement will be hauled in winter. The building will be of solid brick and it is expected, will be ready for occupancy in the fall of 1919. It would be impossible to state at this time what the new building will cost, but it is safe to state that the cost will be above $200,000. _ It is expected that the clericate will open with about sixty students to be increased from tims to time. About five professors or lectors and a few as sistants will have charge of the work. It would be superfluous to attempt to give an outline of the purposes and history of the Capuchin order. Suffice it to state that the order was founded in -Italy for missionary purposes in 1525. In 1856, a few German members of the order came to America and in 1357 located at Mount Calvary. Fond du Lao county, where they have main tain a college ever since. The order now has two provinces in the United States. St. Joseph’s prov ince or Mount Calvary province, in cludes all institutions and churches in charge of the order in Wisconsin. Michigan. New York, Indiana and Illi nois. The location of this great in stitution here is certainly very grat ifying to all people at Marathon, not only from the material aspect, but al so from the ethical. In these days of worldliness and lukewarmness of faith, the preference of the good, pious example of the modest Capuchin Fath ers will certainly be edifying and faith strengthening and a great bless ing to all of us.“ EXTENDING LIGHT AMI POWER LINES i The Wisconsin Vaifey Electric com pany has been given a franchise to put its electric light and power into Marathon and it has asked for a fran chise of Edgar for the same purpose. The'company will extend its high tension lines from Rib View sanato rium west to these villages and by the first of January they will have all the juice they want for both light and power. This is a good move on the part of both of these places, as they will be assurred of ail the electricity they want day and night.

Has Taken Charge of Old Northern thief Mine Near Plainer. Another abandoned mining property in this county, the Northern Chief mine near Plumer, is to be re-opened. The Republic Iron & Steel company, one of the largest independent oper ators in the iron and steel industry in the country, has secured control of the Northern Chief property and will at once begin mining this long aban doned property. This concern has tak en a lease of all the mining property for a radius of two miles around the Northern Chief and no doubt several exploratory shafts will be sunk. The Republic Iron & Steel company has mines located upon all the ranges ex cept the Gogebic and expect to de velop a big shipper in the Northern Chief., Francis J. Webb of Duluth, general manager of the company’s properties on the Mesaba range, inspected the Northerm Chief property last week. “The Northern Chief mine is a sort of deep sea proposition,” says Mr. Webb. “The nine is now down 1300 feet, but I found it to be in splendid condition in every way and we are going to a much .greater depth as we know the ore, and of a very high grade, is there. It will cost a lot of money to get it but it is wortu going after.” The Republic iron & Steel company is not merely a mining concern, but a manufacturing one as well and will use all the ore produced from the Nor thern Chief property in its own mills. The company has large steel mills in Ohio, and Alabama; their biggest plant is located at Youngstown, Ohio, where 10,000 men are employed. The re-opening of the Northern Chief property by this big concern will be a big thing for the western end of the county. It will mean a more intensive prospecting of aban doned mining property in the Iron Belt and Mellen districts and the discovery of a lot of valuable ore which is known to be there but which has been located at such a depth that it had to await the advent of a big concern like the Republic Iron & Steel com pany to be handled properly and in telligently.—Hurley Miner. WAYS IN WHICH FOOD MAY BE SAVED Food conservation hints for the saving of wheat, meat, milk fats and sugar have been received from the na tional food administration by the County Council cf Defense. In addi tion to the observance of Tuesday a§ a meatless day and Wednesday as a vheatless day, these suggestions are made: •Whoever does the buying should first of all make a list of the amounts ordinarily used in any one week; the number of pounds should be divided by seven to get the amount used in a day, and then by the number of per sons fed. This will give the amount used by one person in one day. The allowance quoted below is sufficient to keep a person in good physical condi ton and Ittle change from the usual diet involved: “One and one-half cups of wheat flour a day per person. “One-fourth pouncr of meat a day. “Four tablespoons of sugar a day for both table and cookng. “One-tenth of a pound of butter a day. “Use fish once a week in the place of meat. “Use eggs or beans once a week in the place of meat. “Use poultry for one day. “Serve beef two days. “Use pork and mutton on the other two. "Don’t pse any veal or lamb. “Whenever bread is made, use a blend of wheat with some 4llier grain. “When bread is bought, buy liberty bread'part of the time and some rye. “Don’t make or buy much cake; make oatmeal cookies. “Try having a dish of fruit and nuts handy, instead of candy. "Don't frost a cake more than once a week. “Make a plain cake in two layers with a filling of custard, raisins, ap ple sauce or jelly. ‘“Use fresh, uncooked fruit as much as possible. "Buy enough butter or good butter substitute so that each person can have one-tenth of a pound a day; this to be served on the table. Any that is left can be used on vegetables. A small amount of cheaper fat can be purchased to use in cooking, with the fats that are saved from meats. “Cut down the amount of fried food: everybody will be the better for it. “Don't serve pie more than once a week. Use more fresh fruits, stewed fruits, ice creams and custards. “Serve honey or jam or peanut but ter occasionally and leave butter off the table.” WIATER SEEMS TO HAVE COME WITH A RUSH The ’past week has given us the first real touch of winter. Last Tues day the first demonstration was staged, snowing a goodly part of the day. which of course melted nearly as fast as it fell, -until the ground and walks were cooled off and then it formed a white mantle. It was cold and the days which followed were cold and brought home to all the fact that there was need for wood and coal, with which to keep warm. Thurs day the: rj was rain and snow all day. If the weather man continues to give us this kind of weather, intensifying it as until winter sets in. there will be great suffering for the want of fuel. Those who can do so. should cut and ship wood into the city. There will be no loss of money to them and it will prove a great help to the suf fering. Tae fuel problem is tee one great questions staring us in the face today and now is the time to get in your sujfcMy.

ORGANIZING THE COUNTY Marathon City, Edgar, Stratford and Athens All Getting Ready for Their Share of Liberty Loan Bonds The Liberty Loan advertising post ers to be displayed in public places have been hung in the post offices and banks at Marathon City, Edgar, Strat ford and Athens, and it happened thus: A small consignment of these bright colored posters w*ere received from Chicago, just previous to a trip to those places by Chairman Chellis and Secretary Berger, whose mission was to get local organizations under way •with the co-operation of the banks and village presidents, and they fig ured it out that these attractive post ers would of material assistance to them, and naturally they com mandeered them. Wausau.people may be wondering how it comes that these villages- were the first to be supplied, but that is the way of it. Chairman Chellis stated that organ izations had been started at each of these places, and that big rallies had been arranged for at dates to be de cided upon by the local organizations. The banks are especially energetic in pushing along the work, and he pre dicts that like Mosinee, each of these villages will far over subscribe its quota. A BRIGHT IDEA Down on the lower Fox River there is a shack in which lives one Andy Haskins, a fisherman, who has risen to fame on account of the large catches he has made, whenever it was convenient for him to go out with his rod and line. His big record book with dates and weights testified to his superior skill as an angler. Recently a baby was born in. a luxurious lodge near the Haskins shack, and there were no scales with which to 'veigh it. so Haskins' scale on which he weighed his fish, was procured, and the baby tipped it at 35 pounds. Just such scales are needed to work up an interest in our northern lakes. SOLD HIS GROC ERY George H. Rick, who has conduct ed a grocery store in Wausau for over thirty years, sold out the past week to Mrs. A. Fleischmann of Colby, who took possession yesterday. Mrs. Fleischmann has had long experience in this line of business and will con tinue to make the store as hereto-, fore, one of tije leading ones of the city. It will seem queer not to see George Rick lined up with our mer-1 chants, but he feels that he has earned \ a rest and we feel with him that he j ■is entitled to take one. Mr. Rick has I always been very successful in his line I of business and has built up a trade j second to none in the city. I'.

Huntington. A Plowing Demostration THE FARM TRACTOR has come to stay and we have decided to sell it in connection with our horse business. On looking over the several makes of Tractors, we have decided that the Case Tractor, made at Racine, is not only the best machine on the market, bet the most economical. We have, therefore, decided to accept the agency for Marathon county. We will give a plowing demonstration on Walter Alexander’s farm, at Wausau, on Oct. 16, one at Little Chicago on Oct. 17, and one on John Kreutzer’s farm, at Athens, on Oct. 18. We would be pleased, if possible, for you to attend either of these demonstrations. If it is not convenient for you to attend, and you are interested, would be pleased to have you write us, and we will call on yo and tell you what we know about the machine. There will be one on exhibition at Healg-Brown Com pany’s barn at Wausau, and one at Joe Bauman s barn at Athens. We furnish a small pamphlet which describes the machine. You will notice this machine burns kerosene therefore it can be operated very cheaply. It can be used for palling stumps, pulling the binder, pulling the hay loader and manure spreader, filling silos, grinding feed, sawing wood, and in fact almost anything there is to be done on the farm. Its construction is very simple and is there fore very easily understood, also, handled.
