TUESDAY, OCT. 23. 191-7. OFFICIAL CUT AND COUNTY PAPER. Published weekly and entered at the Post Office at Wausau assecond class matter. This paper is a member of the Wisconsin Patriotic Press Association and pledges its uncompromising loyalty to our government in this war. PRESIDENT’S PROCLAMATION Sets Wednesday, October Twenty* Fourth, as Liberty Day and Urges People to Observe Same. President Wilson in behalf of the % Liberty Loan, has issued a proclama tion setting aside Oct. 24, as Liberty Day and urging the people of the na tion to assemble on that day in their respective communities and “pledge to one another and to the government that represents them the fullest meas ure of financial support.” “Let the result be so impressive and emphatic,” the president urges, “that it will echo throughout the em-. pire of our enemy as an index cf what war to a victorious conclusion.” America intends to do 'to bring this ** * * The president’s proclamation fol lows: “The Second Liberty Loan gives the people of the United States another opportunity to lend their funds to their government to sustain their country at war. The might of the United States is being mobilized and organized to strike a mortal blow, at autocracy in defense of outraged American rights and of the cause of liberty. Billions of dollars are re quired to arm, feed and clothe the brave men who are going forth to fight our country’s battles and to as sist the nations with whom we are making common cause against a com mon foe. To subscribe to the Liberty Loan is to perform a service of patri otism. “Now, therefore, I, "Woodrow Wil son, president of the United States of America, do appoint Wednesday, Oct. 24, as Liberty Day, and urge and advise the people to assemble in their respective communities and pledge to one another and to the government that represents them the fullest meas ure of financial support. On the af ternoon of that day I request that patriotic meetings be held in every city, town and hamlet throughout the land, under the general direction of the secretary of the treasury and the immediate direction of the Liberty Loan committees which have been or ganized by the federal reserve banks. ** * * “The people responded nobly to the call of the first Liberty Loan with an over subscription of more than 50 per cent. Let the response to the second loan be even greater and let the amount be so large that it will serve as an assurance of unequalled support to hearken the men who are to face the fire of battle for the Unit ed States. Let the result be so im pressive and emphatic that it will echo throughout the empire of our enemy as an index of what America intends to do to bring this war to a victorious conclusion. “For the purpose of participating in Liberty Day celebrations all em ployes of the federal government throughout the country, whose ser vices can be spared may be excused at 12 o’clock Wednesday, Oct. 24. ** * * “In witness w'hereof I have here unto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be af fixed. “Done in the District of Columbia, this twelfth day of October in the year of our Lord, one thousand, nine hundred and seventeen and of the independence of the United States of America of the one hundred and forty-second. “By the president. “(Signed) WOODROW WILSON. “(Signed) ROBERT LANSING. “Secretary of State.” You feed your dog; you feed your cat; you feed your little canary bird. When dinner time comes are you go ing to forget the soldiers who fight for you in France? The boy you cheered when he marched away will stand knee-deep in trench mud; he will face poison gas and deadly flame. He will en dure all the terrors of modern bat tle. That’s his bit. Your bit, per haps, is to save one slice of bread a day for him. So closely is the world linked, that one phase of the world war is being sought out in the American kitchen, where tne housewife will be the skilled general who will drive back the menace of privation from the flanks of our allies. There must be more than war muni tions in the hands we stretch across the sea. The cause of democracy must be fed as well as armed. And just as you say that you will not change your style of living, a starving baby dies in France. The cause of food conservation of fers to every American citizen a chance to render a patriotic service that does not entail a sacrifice. The largest potato show and state convention in America will be held in Madison on the 19th to the 24th of November. The program will be an exeellelnt one. ‘•America's Food Problem,” “The Relation of the Pota to Crops,” ‘'Growing. Sorting. Mar keting and Transportation.” will be the questions discussed by growers, dealers, commission men. railroad men, state and government officials representing every potato growing section of America. Twenty-three counties will be in competition with several hundred standard varieties on exhibition.

As long as this house reigns and until the red cap of liberty is erected in Germany there will be no peace in Europe.” United States Senator Paul Husting ; The tragic death of United States ; Senator Paul Husting, which occur- j red Sunday night at 10 o'clock, fol lowing his having been accidentally shot in a row boat, while hunting late Sunday afternoon, on Rush Lake, in Fond du Lac county, cre ates a profoundly regrettable inci dent in the history of the state and of the nation. Senator Husting’s most untimely taking off in the period of his grea test opportunities of usefulness to his state and country, in the midst of the greatest trials the latter has known, since the civil war, when the country’s most devoted sons and leaders can be the most illy spared, invests this most unfortunate event with an atmosphere intensifying its distress. The life of Senator Husting has been an eventful one. Born in Wis consin, passing through the degrees of success that characterful merit fulness and strength of worthy pur poses exact, he filled places of pub lic trust in this state with such fidel ity and recognized accomplishment that in 1914 the people of Wisconsin by popular vote selected him, as a Democrat in a strong Republican state, to the United States senate. Serving for a period of eight years, from 190(i through 1914, in the Wis consin state senate, covering a dur ation when much constructive legis lation was under consideration and enactment, Senator Husting was a prominent factor in the solution of problems that have given his native state much leadership in such work in other states. Fundamentally democratic, in the broad sense, Senator Husting was ever valiant in his efforts to promote the rights of the people, as against invasions thereon ever sought by special privilege. It was in this work in his long and valued services in the Wisconsin state senate, that he became recognized more or less, regardless of party alignments, as one in whom the people’s cause could lind a firm, devoted champion and this recognition contributed in a large measure to his election, though a Democrat, to the United States senate in a state strongly Repub lican. In his larger field of activities and statesmanship opportunity at Wash ington, Senator Husting by his cour age, strong convictions and purpo ses has met not only the expecta tions of those who knew him in this state, but of those who came to know him in the nation. The war in Europe was forcing upon the ad ministration and the congress many new and perplexing problems in which the attitude of members of congress were often keenly chal lenged, when he entered the United States senate. Through all trying issues that came to him for alignment thereon, Senator Husting has made his atti tude clear cut and thoroughly so American that his attitudes have evoked warm nation-wide favorable comment for their determination in sustaining the rights and dignity of this nation and positions of this ad ministration against the attitudes and machinations of Germany. In the distressing accident and untimely death of Senator Husting it resulted in, Wisconsin and the country are denied the services of one whose loyalty and devotion to the needs of the hour will be sorely missed. —Milwaukee News. A successor to Senator Paul O. Husting must be chosen by the people in a primary and special election called by the governor. Attorney W. C. Owen says the governor has not the power to choose a successor. The president, by proclamation, has named Sunday, October 28, as a day of prayer for the success of the Amer ican arms in the war, in accordance with the recent regulation of con gress.

Gillen and Sousa’s Naval Military Band at the High School Auditorium The Great Lakes Naval Training band, which is being directed by John Philip Sousa, gave three concerts in Wausau on Sunday at the court house square and at the High school. The band came to play at patriotic gather ings which were addressed by Hon. Martin J. Gillen of Racine. The band is composed of 37 pieces, the jackies all being dressed in uniform, making a fine appearance. A concert was given at the court house square at 2:00 o’clock and at 2:30 the Tenth Separate company and Home Guards, headed by the band, marched to the High school where the patriotic meet ing was held. The large auditorium was filled with people, many having to stand. After several patriotic se lections had been played by the band, C. S. Gilbert, president of the Liber ty Loan committee, introduced Hon. Martin J. Gillen of Racine, one of the able orators of our country, who gave an address of over an hour on “Our Country—lts Hour of Peril.” It was a rousing speech and stirred to en thusiasm all who heard it. He took his listeners back into history and told how the Prussians gradually gathered into their fold the small countr 5 " > adjacent to its borders by quick aggressive campaigns, all the time building up a fighting machine to wage, conquests for more territory. Carl Schurz and his followers sought this country to escape the tyrrany and militarism of Germany and to en joy the freedom of America. That all Germans who had left the fatherland had suffered from the spirit which has dominated that country which had become unbearable, and they found what they were looking after in Amer ica,—happiness and contentment. The speaker paid a high compliment to the loyalty and patriotism of the Ger man-American people; how they helped to win the battles of the revo lution and the civil war; how they had proved to be prime factors in the progress of this great democracy— America. He showed that the Ger mans were not slackers in this war and as proof of the assertion he turned to the band and said, “this LAST WEEK OF THE LIBERTY LOAN (Continued from first page) man of tne Liberty Loan bond selling campaign for this district. “Liberty Day” will be next Wednes day and on this day every home and every manufacturing plant in Mara thon county is supposed to display the American flag. The bankers of Marathon county have decided to cel ebrate this day by releasing their cashiers and as many of their em ployes as they can spare, and allow ing these with some of the directors of each bank, to join in the big drive for the $1,200,000 Liberty Loan bond sale. These employees and directors will devote the day to making a can vass among the patrons of their sever al banks getting subscriptions for Lib erty Loan bonds, and in the evening will again gather at the Wausau club to report on the results of their day’s work, and they hope to celebrate the raising of the full allotment of Mar athon county. The total amount of subscriptions made up to this Tuesday noon in the city and county is $777,050. Y. M. C. A. NOTES Membership committee meeting this evening to discuss plans for member ship in the present campaign. The $13,000 fund has been sub scribed, lacking about SSOO.

Philipp, of the large percentage of Germans enlisting from Wisconsin. He said that this state was largely populated by Germans; that there were those who did not understand the situation and were lukewarm with matters concerning the war, and he was here to set them right. His prin cipal object was to stir up enthusiasm on the Liberty Loan question. He pointed out the fact that nearly 700 Marathon county boys had been called to war and it was the duty of every citizen to purchase Liberty bonds to the extent of their ability. He said that every member of the band was the owner of a Liberty bond and re lated how 108 Armenians in Racine, who had only been in this country a few years and who could not speak English, had learned of the success which comes to those in the pursuit of happiness and contentment here and they gave of their savings nearly $60,000 for the U. S. Liberty Loan. He closed with an eloquent plea for our people to raise the required amount asked by this county. Harry C. Berger, a member of the county committee, explained the Lib erty Loan bond and said that while the band was continuing its concert the members of the Citizens’ Train ing camp would pass through the au dience taking subscriptions for the bonds from those who had not already subscribed and nearly SIO,OOO were taken. In the evening the same program, practically, was carried out at the school building at 7:30 o’clock, there being a large attendance and about the same amount was raised. . The band can surely play some, and made a hit with our people. It is the same band that played in Madi son at the McAdoo meeting the early, part of October. The patriotic rallies were a suc cess and will do much good in clear ing up the situation in assisting to raise the required amount in this county. MRS. SELMA PAGENKOPF GOGG OF THIS CITY, WILL GIVE A RECIT AL IN CHICAGO NEXT SUNDAY AFTERNOON Mrs. Selma Gogg, who has been in Chicago for several weeks studying music under Prof. Joseph Schwick erath, will give a recital in the beauti ful new Kimball recital hall, Wabash avenue and Jackson boulevard, Chi cago, next Sunday afternoon at three o’clock, under the Carr Concert man agement. Mrs. Gogg will be assisted by John Wiederhirn, pianist and ac companist. The program pamphlet gotten out for this recital has the following to say about Mrs. Gogg: “The first concert will introduce Selma Gogg, a soprano new to Chi cago, the possessor of a beautiful voice. The introduction of Selma Gogg, soprano, to the music-loving public, should prove a distinct event, not only from a vocal standpoint, and we may say that few, if any, so pranos introduced to Chicago audi ences in recent years, possessed a more beautiful voice—but also is the casting of her program of unusual character, introducing manuscript compositions by Chicago composers that are of exceptional merit.” Mrs. Henry Pagenkopf and Mrs. Carl Lotz expect to leave Friday for Chicago to be present at the recital. It will be of much interest to Mrs. Gogg’s Wausau friends to know that she will repeat the recital in Wausau in a few weeks, and John Wiederhirn will come here as her pianist and ac companist. Mrs. Gogg will return to Wausau in a week or ten days. Following is her program to be given next Sunday afternoon in Chicago: “Das Veilchen” Mozart “Care Selve” I “Rejoice, Rejoice Greatly” ( Handel Gavotte...... Bach-Saint Saens .Hark.

He Comes on the Skee" Clough-Leighter PULLED THEIR COLLARS OFF H Paris Women Wore Too Large a Neck Piece Other Women Forcibly Removed Them. In Paris, .at one time, the people dropped their extravagance, and “if a woman -ventured to wear too large a collar, the other women would pull it off." Henry Vlll—as he did with et erything he set his mind to —inter- fered with the dress of his subjects to oOme purpose and brought forward an act against wearing costly apparel. A few years later the law became more stringent still. Philip and Mary compelled attention not only by tines, but went so far as to send offenders to prison. Elizabeth saw that the peo ple were reckless with their money, and caused an act to be passed which declared that anyone who. sold foreign apparel to persons having less than £3,000 a j ear in land or fees, except tor ready money, should forfeit every penny of the price. Ladies wore hoods, hats and caps of tver\ conceivable shape. They were careful as to their hair, and thev had a fine assortment of v.i ps at hand. Eliz abeth herself sometimes wore red hair, and then reverted to black for a c lunge. It so happened that trade in the cap line fell off considerably be cause cans.want out of fashion. .

Ia “The Origin of the Species” Dar win expressed the opinion that the dog was originally descended from the wolf. He was inclined to think that in different parts of the globe man had tamed the particular species of wolf which would be found there, and that our domestic dogs, therefore, rep resent not one but several races of the wild animal, writes R. B. Townshend in the Westminster Gazette. It has long been known that dog and wolf wiH interbreed freely. Buffon, for example, tells us that he made such a cross successfully. Indeed, in Rus sia the Tsars long kept up a fierce pack of hounds for wolf hunting in -which a strong strain of wolf was evident. Unfortunately, a few years ago the little daughter of a huntsman, crossing their kennel alone, stumbled and fell, and the savage brutes set upon her and devoured her on the spot. The Indignant tsar had the whole pack destroyed. Even in England the cross with the wolf has been resorted to for otter hounds in order to increase the cour age and strength of jaw of the dogs. But as the first cross proved rather too wild and uncertain in temper for safe handling, the masters of utter hounds have always crossed back again and again to the dog till there remained perhaps only one sixty fourth of wolf blood, or even less. This fact establishes the fertility of the hybrid between the wolf and the dog when bred back to one of the original parents, but so far there has been no evidence to show how far the hybrids wonld be fertile when bred together continuously. Recently, how ever, in the present century, this has been tested by Dr. Alaric Behm of the Stockholm zoological gardens, who has given a brief account of the obtained fry him. . You Can Borrow Money at 4% Interest to Buy Liberty Loan Bonds , following resolution was unanimously adopted by the Marathon County Bankers Association last Saturday evening: Resolved, whereas it has come to our knowledge at certain persons in Marathon County have refrained rom buying Liberty Loan Bonds for the reason that at this ime they are not in a position to pay the money for the same, and Whereas these same people cannot see that they should pay the regular rate of interest to borrow money to purchase bonds which yield a smaller return than they are paying, Therefore be it resolved, That the banks of Marathon county do pledge themselves to loan sums of money to the amount of S3OO to all desirous of purchasing Liberty Loan Bonds at the rate of 4 per cent interest, said loan to be made for a period of six months, and the borrower to be given the privilege of paying 10 per cent at the time of purchase and the balance in small monthly payments. When the bankers of this county will advance the face value of a Liberty Bond, at the same rate of interest that the bond bears you need have no hesitation in investing. The bankers do not loan on any doubtful security. MARATHON COUNTY LIBERTY LOAN COMMITTEE PERSONALS —Mrs. Al.
