DOING YOUR UTMOST “ALDEN” Lucky - there’s no law compelling you to wear a button for every fund you are called on to subscribe, and of every League, Chapter and Society you are asked ic join to show your patri otism! You’d look like a wandering Christmas tree or a button collection! If we keep on—hysterically “doing our bit,” instead of “sensibly and seriously doing our utmost” —it will soon be the addition of a broad ribbon across the chest, a sasn around the waist with tassels, and a collar with imitation gold and silver braid like the Supreme Exalted and Illustrious Noble Poten tate of the United Colored Order of Passing the Buck. What a hit some new patriotic so ciety could make right now with a Safety First Uniform that involved no real danger and made a good impres sion—on the outside. All in the name of “Doing your bit” and making sure that everybody knows it! This, “not hiding your light under a bushel,” does not have to be rubbed in very hard while there is an oversupply of buttons, with the price as low as twenty-five cents and the market glutted with an oversupply of stren uous salesmen in the safety zone. It might do no harm for a lot of us to take a good look at ourselves to see whether this unctious, “Doing your bit” and proving it with a button dis play isn’t camouflage that doesn't even deceive ourselves. Perhaps if we can become aroused to a clear conception of what Loyalty is, and means, and the real duties it imposes, we may more seriously and helpfully do our duty, and with more patience await the close of the war before tacking on any more tin jewelry. Loyalty means standing by this Government wholeheartedly and unre servedly. You are either Loyal, or Disloyal.- You are either an American, or you are not, and entitled to no flat tering words or consideration to per suade you to change your mind. Tl/gre are only two classifications: You are either for the Government, or you are against the Government. Asa loyal citizen you are anxious to do your utmost and that very desire on your part has made it possible to pass out so much bunk as patriotic endeavor. If within the draft age—and you haven’t a well-to-do mother whose sole support you have suddenly be come, or you’ve made a quick discov ery of a disqualifying defect you’d be ashamed to let the girls you’ve been trying to make a brave impression on know in times of peace—then the ut most you can do to prove your loyalty is to answer the country’s call and serve your Flag. If you are beyond the draft but still within the service age, and specially qualified for duty, with no ties and obligation to depend ents who must have your care, doing your utmost :s to gladly and proudly welcome the opportunity in giving the best and all a man can give. But we are told, it takes the labor and effort of twelve at the rear, to en able one to serve effectively at the front, and that because of this. “Bus iness as usual” is a false slogan to meet the unusual conditions of war. What makes our condition still more unusual is that “the front” is three thousand miles away, and this too makes it still more difficult for us to realize fully the horrors as well as the needs of war. Backed by a loyal citizenship, a Government at war needs two essen tials: Men. and Money. We have got the Men. We have got the Money, but Money in such an emergency as war, means only the labor, the food, goods and things that it will produce and furnish. So that back of this essen tial. Money must stand the twelve who are to back up the one at the front. Except for the unusual condi- Good Clothes Nominees It is of primary impoilance to be dressed properly, and in order to dress properly, you must elect Wisdom on your clothes selection.

LEAK THE TAILOR TAILOR SHOP 308 WASHINGTON ST. tions war has created, the incentive for the Money would furnish an abun dance of food, goods and all of the things demanded. However, taking from twenty to forty million or more men from the farms, workshops and industries of the world has created a shortage in productive man-power, and here you have the unusual condi tions that must be solved back of the firing line. Take this question of food: An army travels on its stomach. For long, no soldier, however loyal and bn. ve can continue unless nourishingly fed, so that at whatever cost there must be sufficient food for our soldiers—and as these soldiers are three thousand miles away and must be transported, that food must be of such character as will gjve the most of nourishment and can best be transported—at whatever denial or sacrifice or change to our selves, food for our soldiers is an in dividual and collective duty. Our second duty on this food ques tion is to feed our own people. Our twelve men back of the firing line travel on their stomachs as well as the one at the front, and while we may adjust ourselves to the larger employ ment of foods that Will not bear dis tant transportation, the problem here is after all more the eliminaPon of waste than the curtailment of the act ual needed supply. Right here is a place and an opportune time to deny that the American people have not been a provident and a saving people.—Provident and Saving, not Thrifty.—Saving Bank Deposits do not alone furnish conclusive compari son. The people of the United States carry more life insurance for the pro tection of dependents than all the people of Europe combined. The people of the United States carry more accident and health insurance for which they individually pay than is carried in all the foreign countries. In the number of policyholders and amount of assets accumulated and saved in the companies and orders in the United States we make very much more than a favorable comoarison wftii the number of Savings Bank De positors and their deposits in Eng land, France and Germany combined and when you consider that eight out of every ten policies of insurance are carried at a sacrifice and denial, you will have to admit that being provi dent and saving has a little wider ap plication than merely depositing in a Savings Bank or hoarding in a sock, and that therefore the American peo ple have demonstrated, by their provi sion for over forty billions of protec tion for dependents and themselves, that they are first among all provi dent and saving peoples. But the American people have not bpen thrifty, and that is why the Thrift Campaign will carry with it such lasting and beneficial results. Thrift is not the denial of necessities, but the elimination of waste and ex travagance. Sacrificing and denying in the essential things you need to live and be properly clothed to buy Thrift Stamps is not a demonstration of Thrift, but reducing the size of the garbage barrel, supplanting waste by economy in food supply and use—and in clothing—and cutting out extrava gance and the unessential things, is what makes for the cultivation of Thrift. And when you apply this rule to the food question for our own people, none of us need greatly suffer, for we have thrown away more food values every day than would feed a nation What we sorely needed was a lesson in Thrift, and with it, there will be fewer graves dug with teeth, tho there may be smaller incomes for doctors. After fully supplying the soldiers at the front with food, and after per forming our second duty in feeding our oeople with intelligent economy and thrift, then we owe another duty: to turn over the excess—and there must be an excess—to the friendly people of other nations —our allies coming first. It required an experi ence such as this to demonstrate the difference between “the high cost of living” and "the cost of high living,” for with the Loyalty that dictates “Doing your utmost” we recognize our obligation to cultivate the habits of Thrift, not only that there may be an excess of food stuffs suitable for transport to our allies, but that there may also be an excess in the saving of our cost of living to furnish the needed Money to the Government to carry on this war to a successful conclusion. We have got the men—we have got the money, and we have got the food, but only if we do not waste —if our loyalty is genuine enough for prae- g v'-__ jgg , to aitsciu pilot jtical demonstration and freely placing j its results at the service of the admin : istration. With this, no one will actu ally suffer for necessities, tho it may jar many of us out of our softness and ease. Loyalty means more than simply lip-service, but it has never meant abject subservience to mere men or measures. Here in this state we are now to be put to an added test of our sincerity in the selection of a United States Senator. Here is the oppor tunity for secret stealthy treason —for allowing petty personal grievance and ingrown political prejudices to ob scure the one great issue of “Win the war at whatever cost.’* Here too is the opportunity of a practical demon stration for such wholehearted Loy alty as will subordinate all else to that one issue and make the result of that election a convincing verdict that the people of Wisconsin are Americans first, last and all the time. It. were best that party politics and factional strife should not enter this contest. If there were no other question, than to decide between a loyal republican and a loyal democrat, we could view the issue without any misgiving—it could bring no encouragement or com fort to the enemy— but we have with us those who are not true to the country of their adoption, those whose theory of government would first create chaos and invite certain victory of the enemy, and then those, more dangerous because more numerous, who will allow their petty little griev ances control in casting their vote to satisfy some real or fancied grouch or be swayed by some personal preju dice, forgetting that in this crisis of the Nation’s life the great, big and first thing for every American to do is to stand behind the President in one solid unfaltering phalanx. You might as well invest your money in munitions of war and send them to the enemy, as by your vote send a United States Senator to Washington who will not loyally and steadfastly give his every effort and support in winning this war. You might as well load a gun and fire into the backs of the boys who are marching to the front as to cast your vote except for wholehearted uncompromising Loy alty. To elect a man as United States Senator who does not stand for un alloyed Americanism will encourage the enemy and mean more deaths for us. A large vote that can in any man ner be construed as opposition to the Government and the war will shame and discourage our Wisconsin boys and make their task more difficult. .liisl now, in comparison to Loyalty or Disloyalty, being a republican or democrat is a matter of indifference. May we not now be heartened by the patriotic appeal of Abraham Lin coln, which today again becomes so applicable: “There may be mistakes made. Sometimes things may be done wrong, while the officers of the Government do all they can to prevent mistakes; but I beg of you as citizens of this great Republic not to let your minds be carried off from the great work we have before us. “The struggle is too large for you to be diverted from it by any small matter. When you return to your homes, rise up to the dignity of a gene ration of men worthy of a free govern ment and we will carry out the work we have commenced. “That is the great thing—not to al low' small irritations and petty preju dices and personal predilections to weaken our main purpose and prevent us from rising to this great occasion. This war must be fought and won by the power and momentum of this people moving solid and wholehearted behind the President at Washington, and not otherwise. “This is to be the big hour of Ameri can life. God grant we may all be fit for it. “Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray that this mighty scourge of war may soon pass away.” ( OUNTY ACTIVITIES The Knowlton and Dancy Red Cross branch, which is one of the livliest branches in the county, will give a big Easter ball in Adam Feit’s hall, Knowlton, Wednesday evening, April 3rd. Music will be furnished by Cones’ Fourth Regiment orchestra of this city. Tickets SI.OO. The ladies having the affair in charge will be glad to see “you” present. That Mosinee is one of the livliest towns in this section of country, was again demonstrated last Monday even ing, when a Parent-Teachers and Pa triotic meeting was held in the High school auditorium, which large room was filled to overflowing. There was several splendidly rendered musical selections by the home people. The first and second grade pupils of Miss Myhre, astonished all present by spell ing and writing readily words of four and more syllables, having been taught the Phonic method. The principle speaker was Rev. J. J. Rol biecki, who is fast making a reputa tion as a patriotic orator. That his talk was well received was demon strated by the thunderous applause he received. Mrs. G. G. Knoller of Dancy sang two splendid selections, ably accompanied on the pianc by her daughter, Miss Evelyn, and the violin obligato was well rendered by Clarence Bjreitenstein of Knowlton. As an encore Mrs. Knoller sang the latest thing in a patriotic song—with chorus: “Stamps. Stamps. Stamps the boys are selling. Cheer up patriots when they come, Put your funds behind the flag— And let freedom come again, To the free land and our own be loved home.” CITY COUNCIL At an adjourned meeting of the city council last Tuesday not much busi ness was transacted owing to the ill ness of the mayor, which kept him at home. The matter of the wood question was laid over until next meeting. It was voted to renumber residences, where necessary and re place street signs where names of streets had been changed. The hearing of John Sinski, on re vokation of his saloon license for al leged sale of intoxicants to a minor, was adjourned until the next meeting. The council will meet in adjourned session on the 2t>th day of March. j Catarrhal Deafness Cannot be Cured ; by local applications, as thpy cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness, and that is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube When this tube is inflamed you have a rumtr ling sound or imperfect hearing-, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is the result. Uo less the inflammation can be reduced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh, which is an inflamed condition., of the mucous surfaces. Hall’s Catarrh Medicine acts through the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system.

The many friends of Ray J. Reiser will be glad to know that he has re cently returned from another success ful trip across the Atlantic, but one filled with many exciting experiences: “U. S. S. Kanawha. Office of the Executive Officer. March 8, 1918. Enroute Halifax Nova Scotia to Port Arthur, Texas. Passing Miami, Florida. As the ship that I am serving on has just returned from another round trip - to the other side with out any mishap I will take the liberty of writ ing you a few lines today as I promised to do while visiting my grandparents in Wausau. I said that we returned without any mishap but must state that it certainly is a miracle that I am able to w r rite you at this time. The course we took was a perilous one and were forced to pass through some very dangerous places as you will see later. We sailed from New York, Janu ary 22, for Halifax to await a convoy or escort there. We sailed from that port on January 27th in company, with several British and tw r o Russian ships, there were twelve ships all told. We were the only ones flying the American flag. We were convoyed by a British cruiser, which acted as flag ship for our fleet. Among the ships that sailed from Halifax w'ere the ill-fated “Tuscania,” Baltic, two amunition ships, tw r o Russian troop ships and five other supply ships. Our trip was uneventful out side of a great deal of rough weather and heavy seas unt’l the night of February sth, we had reached the northern coast of Ireland and were passing through the channel. The Tuscania, a large twin screw and turbine propelled steamer carry ing American troops was just ahead of us zig-zagging back and forth. About 6:45 we felt a rumble and a jar and at 6:48 we received a S. Q. S. from the Tuscania and a message stating that she had been hit with a torpedo. I was down below at the time but as soon as we received the message general quarters was sound ed and we all rushed to our stations that we are supposed ’to *ake when in battle. When I arrived up on the poop deck the Tuscania was along side of us about a hundred yards off and she had her decks all aglow r with lights. We could see men jump ing overboard and see others lowering the life boats and sliding down the ropes into them. We were making full speed ahead and could not stop as we w'ere liable to be struck by another torpedo at any moment. The Tuscania began to send red rockets into the air which meant a submarine on her port side, and a short time later she sent up four white rockets which meant to send assistance that they were sinking fast. The day before we were met by seven British torpedo boats, who were with us at the time and they immediately went to rescue the survivors. It was a shock to our crew as we knew' that she car ried our own troops as we could plainly see them through glasses and the ship was just ahead of us and close by all through the trip. Forty min utes after we had received the first message we received another stating that nearly all had been taken off and that she was then about to submerge. We kept our course and about 15 min utes after we received this last mes sage a dark object came spinning through the water and looked to us as if it were a conning tower of a sub. We had orders to fire at any object that did not show a light so we let her have it twice. It w r as only about two hundred yards astern of us. Both shots found their mark as we could see the shells explode when they hit. The following morning a submarine was found on the beach a short dis tance from the place, where we fired at, with two shell holes in her conning tower; the crew had beached it and deserted it, but were captured later on the mainland. If they remained on top of the water they would have been captured and as they could not submerge on account of the conning tower torn open they beached her and left. The Kanawha has been giv en the credit for disabling her which makes two to this ship’s credit. She has been christened “The Fighting Kanawha” by the crew. This channel was a regular nest for submarines and a very good place for them to operate. The channel is narrow and light houses with bright lights that are almost like a large flash light, are in great numbers along this coast and when they send out a ray of light over the water it shows a ship up very plain five miles off. A sub can lay off 1,000 yards with only her periscope out and when a ship passes if she is lying in the ray it will cut off the light and when this happens they are able to fire a torpedo and ipake a hit nearly every time. We Could see a light about five miles off in the dis tance from where the Tuscania was torpedoed and as the sea was calm we knew they would not have much trouble in launching their boats. There was no sleep for the crew that night and we remained at our sta tions all night with a life belt around us in case of an emergency and we were ready to make for the Boats. At tv. T o a. m., the other ships in the convoy left us and we proceeded on our course alone. We were bound for Lamlash. Scotland, which lies on the Island of Arran a short distance from Glascow. while the other ships made for that port. We arrived at our des tination at 8 a. m., and entered the harbor. Lamlash is a very pretty spot and is situated at the foot of some moun tains. It seemed to be a queer little place with its many huts built closely together and two churches with its spares towering out over the huts. These huts are built of a material like stucco and of many different colors. Up on the mountain sides there are many small cottages and large fields which were under culti vation at this time. As one admires the beautiful scenery it brings to his memory the many descriptions that he has read in the works of Scott, especially in his “Lady of the Lake ” We soon learned that we had been bottled up in this place and that the bay outside was full of subs. We saw them at two different times. One morning we saw two periscopes just outside of the nets and another time we saw a sub way up out of ’.he water and flying her flag big as could be. There were no torpedo boats in the harbor at the time. The follow ing day we received word that tor pedo boats were bombing the channels with depth charges. After we had been here a week we got orders to sail for another port in Scotland, which I will not mention as it is the OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO.

Partridge and large British naval bae. We left one night at dark and had to run the gauntlet but we got through O. K. We arrived at our destination two days later, after passing through some beautiful channels. We often would pass a cliff, upon which an old castle was built. We passed several of these and enjoyed the/scenery very much. The port that we reached was a small place but had a very large harbor and here we saw the British grand fleet, the pick of England’s Navy. We saw some of her latest type battle ships and we were some what surprised to find part of our fleet there; they were some of our first class battle ships but I will not mention the names. We discharged our cargo here and on February 18th set sail for New York. We had very rough weather and the torpedo boats were able to stay out with us only twelve hours and then we kept on alone. The seas were so rough we could not make over 5 or 6 knots an hour on account of the hip tossing so and we soon were running short of fuel oil. We then headed for Halifax and arrived there Friday, February 28th. We sure were glad to get our feet on terra firma again. We then received orders to proceed to Port Arthur, Texas, and are on our way there at the present time. We have just passed Miami, and expect to reach our destination Monday morning. I will finish this letter and mail it as soon as we arrive in port.” “Port Arthur, Texas, March 11, 1918. I will now endeavor to finish my letter and get it off in the mail in the "morning. We arrived at Port Arthur at 4 p. m. and are now tied up at the oil docks which are situated about three or four miles outside of the city. It is very warm down here, about 98 in the shade, and my shipmates and myself are all tanned up and sun-burned in great style; the only bad feature here are the many mos quitos that infest the canal or channel that leads in from the Gulf. They are about six times the size of the species that thrive in the vicinity of Wausau during the summer months. When they sting they raise a lump on a person the size of a hickory nut. We received our mail upon our ar rival, the first news from home and mother since leaving New York in January. There were twenty pouches in all and we have been some busy sorting it and distributing it out among the crew. I received all the issues of the Pilot and enjoyed reading them very much. One of the things that I was highly interested in was the account of the sinking of the “Tuscania.” I never realized what real danger was until that night; she was so close and we could see so plainly what was taking place on board her that the picture is painted so firmly in my mind that I will never be able to forget it. The men jumping overboard and swimming around in the water, etc. I was sorry that we were not allowed to render assistance at that time, but a ship in convoy dare not hesitate a second but goes ahead full speed to keep out ot possible danger to itself. The officers and crew of the Kana wha are going to give a naval ball 'Wednesday evening at Port Arthur. We are using a fund that originates from the profits of the canteen. We are planning on rather an extravagant affair. It is on the order of a farewell party for the boys who have just re turned from two months at sea and are about to start on another journey across in the next few days. Where we will go from here we are not sure, but it looks very much like a trip to Italy this time. We no doubt will proceed from here to Hampton Roads to await a convoy. I must bring this letter to a close now, hoping it finds you and all of my Wausau friends in the best of health, and bidding you one and all farewell again, I beg to remain, Yours truly, RAY J. REISER.” NATIONAL GUARD Wisconsin has been somewhat un fortunate in its senior representa tive in the U. S. Senate, but in its loyalty it stands way to the front. Adj. Gen.

Huntington, WAR SAVINGS SOCIETY Will Organize One in Every School in Wisconsin Definite steps toward tfie organiza tion of the War Savings’ society in every class room of every school house in Wisconsin, have Teen taken by the committee appointed by state director, J. H. Puelicher, of which Mr. Thomas H. Boyce of Milwaukee is chairman. Mr. Boyce has sent to every teacher in the slate, a personal appeal to co operate in this work. The teachers .have also been supplied with pamph lets, containing the plan of the school organization, and with War Savings manuals which give all information required. Posters especially designed for school room use have been sent to every school room in the state. While the original plan contem plated not less than ten members for any War Savings Society, it has been decided that in country schools, where the numbers of pupils is small, seven or eight savers may organize a society. The plan of organization contem plates the election of one pupil in the society as president, and another as secretary. The teacher, as expected will act as treasurer, receiving the payments and attending to the de livery of the Thrift Stamps. Upon the teacher will devolve the duty of re ceiving the savings of the children in pennies and other small coins and keeping them until a sufficient ac cumulation Tor the purchase of a stamp has been made. Mr. Boyce is very desirous of im mediate action by all of the school teachers in this matter, as he hopes to have the societies fully organized within the next few weeks. 95,000 DRAFTED MEN TO MOVE .SOON A movement of 95,000 drafted men to begin on March 29 and continue for five days was ordered Tuesday by Provost Marshall General Crowder. The order calls troops from every state in ‘lie union with the exception of lowa and Minnesota. It includes men remaining from the first draft and those liable to call in the second. Just how many men of the second draft are affected by the order was not stated at Gen. Crowder's office. It is understood that the movement will virtually complete the first draft and that it is part of the announced plan to call registrants in small groups as fast as they can be ac commodated. 800,000 men are to be called to the colors gradually during the present year and this is the first call under the second army draft. Wisconsin’s apportionment is 2,214. From this county the draft will take 31 men—ls from the first dis trict and 16 from the second. These men will go to Camp Grant for train ing.
