Chamberlain's Cough Remedy me Most Reliable Alter many years’ experience in the use of it and other cough medicines, there are many who prefer Chamber lain’s to any other. Mrs. A. C. Kis stein, Greenville, 111., writes, “Cham berlain’s Cough Remedy has been used in my mother’s home and mine for years, and we always found it a quick cure for colds and bronchial troubles. We find it to be the most reliable cough medicine we have used.” C. C. PARIAN C. C. Parlin of Philadelphia, former ly principal of the Wausau High school, was in the city over Sunday on a visit to his mother and Wausau friends. Yesterday afternoon he gave a talk at the High school, principally on the conservation of food. He spoke briefly on the shortage of sugar fac ing this country, and mentioned sub stitutes, such as corn syrup, etc. Mr. Parlin stated that the waste of food had been cut down considerably, wasteful extravagance is becoming a thing of the past, and economy is practiced more than ever before. In public eating places, such as hotels and restaur '.nts, people are eating all they order. /Mr. Parlin said we have reached the period when all food or dered should be eaten and not left on our plates. If we observe the con servation of food there is no reason why there should be a food famine, but if we are ndt careful there will not be enough food to go around. Mr. Parlin departed again last evening. SHIP CHRISTMAS PARCELS EARLY A campaign for early shipment of Christmas packages was inaugurated at a joint meeting of the American Railway association’s car service com mittees of Chicago, Milwauke and South 'Bend. Co-operation in this campaign was promised by represen tatives of the National Industrial Traffic League and the Chicago Asso ciation of Commerce. Each railroad is to do everything possible to promote early shipments of Christmas packages, whether by mail or express, according to a reso lution adopted by the car service com mittees. Justice R. X. Larner imposed a fine of $50.00 each and costs upon Max and John Graebel Saturday afternoon on charges of hunting ducks iir Lake Wausau. The fines, however, were suspended, because of the plea that the defendants thought the lake was not massed as open water. The costs in the case, amounting to $31.30, were settled by each.

WAUSAU PILOT WALTER BRAEGER BURIED HERE The body of Walter Braeger, son of former Mayor Henry C. Braeger of Rhinelander, Wis., who was killed Tuesday evening near Bass Lake. Wis., was brought in on the 2:39 p. m. North Western train, Saturday and taken to the home of William Schulen berg, 601 West street., where services were conducted by Rev. E. C. Grauer. The body was escorted by an hon orary delegation of ten friends, who had been his fellow workmen for the last two or three yearr, also by his father and mother, two brothers, Mil ton and Zeno, and sister, Mrs. Fred Wilson, and husband; also Miss Ma bel Rheaume, his fiance, her mother, and Miss Glady§ Rogers, all of Rhine lander. Mr. Henry Braeger’s sisters, Mrs. Knack and Mrs. Karnes, of She boygan, and Mrs. Rowe of Milwaukee, also attended the funeral. Mr. praeger was employed as as sistant superintendent for the Lang lade Lumber Cos., and was taking the place of one of the brakemen who was sick. The train crew spotted some cars of logs on a switch track which had considerable grade and had blocked the cars and run down the track about a mile to get water for the engine and were coming back, when the cars that they had left, started in some way and the engine, with Mr. Braeger and another brake man standing on the front end, met right at the switch. Ie being so dark that none of the train crew saw or heard the log cars until the crash. Mr. Braeger was caught between the end of the car and the engine and his left leg and part of his body were severed entirely from the remainder of the body. His fellow brakeman was also injured quite badly. Mr. Braeger was picked up by the bal ance of the train crew and taken into a shanty near the track, but died in about twenty minutes. Mr. Braeger was twenty-six years of age and was to have been married Saturday morning to Miss Mabel Rheaume of Rhinelander, they hav ing their home at Bass Lake already furnished and ready to go to house keeping. Mr. Braeger is survived by those al ready mentioned and the following aunts and uncles of this city: Mr. and’ Mrs. William Schulenberg, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Ivopplin, Mr. artd Mrs. (’has. Koch, Mr. and Mrs. Leopold Tank, Mr. and Mrs. Herman Krueger and Mrs. Gustave Braeger and their families. WHY FEAR DEATH’S CALL? Philosopher Regards Passing Away as Only Natural and Good—Fears the Unnatural. They were discussing death, a little group of men, all of them in the best of health and the glory of living. Men of the world, in a sense, and enjoying life to its utmost, the subject of death was introduced by the announcement that a widely-known man with whom all of them had been acquainted had passed away. One yf the party, according to the Columbus (O.) Dispatch, said he hated to think of death, that he was actually afraid to think of it. He so loved life that death seemed a terrible enemy, and he would like-to escape it. But the philosopher of the party—only he was not known as a philosopher until he delivered his little preachment— said he could not understand such an attitude toward death. “I am not afraid of anything that is natural,” he said. “It is the unnatural that alarms me. It would be unnatural to live forever, and I would hate to he sentenced to such a punishment. But death is natural; lam not afraid of it. Billions of people have died; they are dying every day. Little children have died and old men and women, and t Vl ~ birds and beasts all pass away, and the fishes in the streams, and every living thing Upon the earth is to die. NVhy, then, should a greflt hulk of a chap like myself, one who has had and is having his time, why should I fear death?” Not afraid of that which is natural? If only all of us could understand that the natural is good and the unnatural bad, what a splendid world it would be for everything and everybody. CURIOUS LEGACIES ARE LEFT Man Wills Wife a Farthing, to Be Forwarded to Her in an Un stamped Envelope. A gentleman lately left “the large oakeu walking-stick, with silver head bearing verses alluding to it having been a sapling grown from an acorn planted on my great-grandfather’s wedding day,” to his nephew, and to his sister “the damask tablecloth with figures and armorial bearings com memorating the marriage of Louis IV. of France.” A Liverpool lady, who died lately, let! her nephew—nephews seem to be specially favored —her doormats, except parlor mats and the oilcloth in the hall. Perhaps she feared he .night sell the oilcloth and go In for riotous living on the proceeds. The will of an eccentric lady con tained the following clause; “As to my sisters, nieces, nephew, brother-in-law, cousin, nothing shall come from me to them but a bag of sand to rub them selves with. None deserve even a good by, Ido not recognize a single one of them!" Dear old thing! Meanest of all, however, was the man who left his wife a farthing, with directions that it should be forwarded to her in an unstamped envelope'—Tit-Bits. Curious Timekeepers. To ascertain the time at night, the Apache Indians employed a gourd on which the stars of the heavens were marked. As the-constellations rose in the sky, the Indian referred to his gourd and found out the hour. By turning the gourd around he could tell the order in which the constellation might he expected to appear. The hill people of Assam reckon time and distance by the number of quids of betel-nuts chewed. It will be remembered how. according to Wash ington Irving, the Dutch colonial as sembly was Invariably dismissed at the last puff of the third pipe of to bacco of Gov. Wouter Van Twiller. A Montagnis Indian of Canada will set np a tall stick in the snow when traveling ahead of friends who are to follow. He marks with his foot the Kne of shadow cast, and by the change tn the angle of the shadow the on-com ing party can tell, on arriving at the spot, about how far ahead the leader JUI REI> C ROSS NOTES The Red Cross work continues in Wausau and vicinity without a hitch. More workers are being added to the list of those giving part of their time to this needy and worthy cause every week, and those at the head of the local chapter and branches throughout the county are becoming more and more encouraged. The ladies of Stratford have become very much interested in the Red Cross work and have recently made a can vass of the town for members. The past week the Stratford ladies anxious to do their “bit” met at the opera house, at which time a delegation of Wausau Red Cross workers were pres ent and helped organize and give in structions in the work to be done. Dr. A. W. Trevitt was also in Strat ford during the past week and gave an address on Red Cross work at the opera house. The Wausau ladies go ing over to Stratford are gratified with the spirit demonstrated by our neighboring town and much assistance is assured in the way oi Red Cross articles from the ladies of that town. M. D. Murphy, Red Cross Commis sioner to Frande, has sent the follow ing cablegram, which explains the dire need for knitted garments: “Begin shipping now one and a half million each knitted mufflers, sweat ers, socks and wristlets. These are desperately needed before cold weath er. In view of the shortage of fuel and other discomforts they will be of incredible value in both military and civilian work. “Last winter broke the record for cold and misery among the people here. They inexpressibly dread lest the coming winter find us without supplies to meet the situation. I urge you on behalf of our soldiers and those of our allies who will suffer in the frozen trenches. Thousand of Belgian and French refugees and repatriates are being returned through Switzerland to France.” The following finished Red Cross articles have been received by the Marathon county chapter from the Mosinee branch since September 15: 2 sweaters, 2 scarfs, 7 pair wristlets, 2 pair socks, 2 helmets, 49 caps. They expect to bring in larger returns for November Ist, as there is a large amount of yarn still out. An interesting Red Cross meeting was held at Spencer last Tuesday af ternoon. Mrs. C. B. Bird, Mrs. C. C. Yawkey, Mrs. R. E. Puchner and Mrs. J. L. Sturtevant of the Wausau chap ter were present to give instructions in the worx. The local committee of Red Cross workers took samples of material, patterns and finished ar ticles of work to Spencer to show the ladies of that place what the Red Cross requires. In a talk given by Mrs. Bird, she stated that 700 finished knitted sets are required of the Mara thon county chapter in their next shipment November Ist. Each set con sists of one sweater, one scarf, one pair wristlets, one helmet and one pair of socks. Many untrue stories have been going the rounds lately on the work being done by the Red Cross that needs to be stopped imme diately. Undoubtedly everybody knows what the Red Cross organization is by this time, and if they do not know, they ought to. Red Cross work has spread rapidly over this country since the declaration of war and is an in dication of the general patriotic sen timent throughout the country. Among the stories circulated is that the sol diers have to pay for sweaters, scarfs, helmets, wristlets, etc., made by the Red Cross workers. Another story is that the soldiers never get to see these articles made by Red Cross w r orkers, but that they are sold to wholesalers and in time find their way into the retail stores. Stories like the above are absurd and the originators of them should be pun ished to the fullest extent of the law. A person that will start a story like either of the above is a traitor , and is working hard against an organiza tion that is trying to help our boys who have gone to the front to give up their lives if necessary that their country may be saved. The Red Cross articles made in Wausau are sent to the Central Division headquarters in Chicago, from which place they go on to New York, where with other Red Cross articles from all parts of the country, they are sent.across the sea. Donations of old sheets or linens in which to wrap gauze surgical dress ings will be gladly accepted at the Red Cross rooms. A roll top desk is needed at tht Red Cross rooms. Any one having such a desk that they will loan, kind ly call the Red Cross headquarters, 'phone 3858. FARM LANDS 2,500 acres of Marathon and Lin coln county farm lands for sale to set tlers.

All interested in debating were asked to sign up Thursday. Friday the Latin students of the three upper classes held a meeting and decided to continue their Latin club. No officers were elected, but a future business meeting was ar ranged for Tuesday morning; also plans for a Hallowe’en party were started.

The German one having been taken from a German brought down by Mr. Molter. The regular mass meeting was held Friday afternoon, the president of the Athletic council presiding. Speeches were called for from Coach Schneider, Sparr, captain of the football team; Hess and Anderson. New yells and songs were passed around and tried out. A novel feature was the rhymes introducing speakers, which were con cocted by our clever president of the Athletic council, Morton Schaeffer. Saturday morning a special coach attached to the regular 10:25 St. Paul passenger train, conveyed the two teams, a number of the faculty and about 80 rooters to Grand Rapids. The second team which is coached by Al. Kiefer, and the Grand Rapids second team played the oreliminary game, our team winning by a score of 24 to 0, Turner starring throughout. The game between the first teams followed, the line up being as follows: Hess, Leak, Anderson, back field; Cook, quarterback; Laabs, center; Kellermann, right guard; Zimmerer, left guard; Schneider, Sparr, tackles; Reinke, right end; Roach, left end; Wolf, Keysow, Johnson, Niles, subs.

The um pire and referee were LaCrosse men. In the evening a dance was given in the High school gymnasium. All attending reporting a good time. Many students attended the two ad dresses by Judge Gillen of Racine, in the interest of the Liberty Loan cam paign, Sunday afternoon and evening. Thirty-seven members of Sousa’s fa mous marine band, furnished music which added greatly to the occasion. ALout $13,000 in bonds were sub scribed for. Thursday afternoon after school the High School Girls’ Knitting club met and worked. Gauze work class meet ing will be held on Monday. Erna Lemke, who is teaching at Mellen, Wig., this year, was a visitor last week. Monday evening the third series of war pictures was given, the title of the picture being, “Rally ‘Ro md the Flag.’’ Miss Mary Nicolls is substituting for Miss Stoddard, as she is unable to take her classes. Miss English was ill Friday, her classes being taken by others. C. C. Parlin. a former principal of our schools was a visitor at the High school Monday afternoon and gave a short address on the “Hoover Admin istration.” The late snow fall is a premonition of the coming severe weather, and is a reminder that your stock of under wear needs replenishing. Seim Bros, can suit you in goods and prices, adv. M. M. CORJNER. “Save Everything.” We learn by experience. We have canned much that might as well have been kept in its natura l state. Grapes and cranberries will keep in a dry cool place. The stems of the grape bunches may be dipped in paraffine. High bush cranberries grow in large bunches. The stem which is 6or 8 in. in length can be picked without injury to the bush. These stems we used to tie in bunches and iiang in the attic, freezing will not hurt them. Peas and beans when ripened will keep forever. Any kind of black or brown beans are good in winter and may be cooked without meat. Many are misled by printed receipes into making rich preserves, sweet pickles, calling for many kinds of spices, etc. One woman says a 5c package of mixed spices has lasted me two years, most of the cayenne pepper we used for toothache cure too. We make our sweet pickles a few at a time during the winter from odds and ends of vegetables and fruit, us ing the “Diced vinegar over and over. As long as the aforesaid receipes ap pear in print, housewives will follow them. Canned fruit needs a cool, dry place and should be kept from the light, but so as to be looked after. At the first sign of ferment, it should be heated over and used or dried. We are sorry of the way some of the potatoes are put into the cellar. They should not be damp and boards ought to be put next the cellar floor. A few can be kept in a barrel lined with heavy paper and placed away from the window or door. The barrel is easily covered in freezing weather. Sunburn must be guarded against also. This may be caused merely by light from the window. Now you say there is nothing left in the garden to be gathered. How about all those potato vines, and other vines? You mean to rake and burn them, but wait! Do you know they make excellent kindling? Get some barrels or boxes, and some day when they are bone dry gather them in. The children will help but don’t expect them to work hard without pay. How they do enjoy earning a little money and what a lot they will do for 5 cents! The sunflower stalks can be broken and piled by themselves. Be sure your woodhouse will keep it all dry, and before spring you will appreciate your kindling. A returned missionary, speaking at a picnic, pointed to a bunch of dry weeds and said: “In China, these would be made to cook a dinner.” We know of a farmer who gathers large quantities of leaves from the woods, storing them in bins to use for bedding stock. Why should not these be utilized for kindling also? It goes without saying that no matches or spark of fire must ever be seen near the barn. Will it pay to keep a few hens over winter? We think so if you have planned for their keep as one we know. She saved all the sunflower seed, gathered a lot of clover heads, and packed in a barrel. Also saved and cured the lawn clippings. There will be scraps from the table. She may not get many eggs in the coldest weather, but they will likely begin to lay in February or March. She will have to buy some grain, but she will eat eggs when the rest of us go with out. She will have her flock of hens when spring comes too. They will be in good health and condition for they will have had good care. The improvements being made at the Y. M. C. A. has necessitated its being closed only to Red Cross work ers and to those occupying rooms} in the dormitory until the work is com pleted.
