DISTRICT MEETING Odil Fellows and Rebekrhs Meet in Wausau On Friday of the past week the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Merrill, Tcmahawk and 'Wausau had a district meeting in this city. The visitors came in on the St. Paul morning train, and were met by members of the two. local organizations. About twen ty Odd Fellows and twenty-one Rebekahs from away were here. The Odd Fellows conducted their meetings at the I. O. O. F. hall, at which time the workings of the order was taken up in addresses and dis cussions. The first degree was con ferred during the afternoon session, and the ceremonies were in charge of the Wausau team. At the business session district officers were elected as follows to serve for the coming year: President—J. M. Howarth, Wausau. Vice President—Bert Fletcher, Mer rill. Secretary—S. J. Leisman, Merrill. Treasurer—John Ecklund, Toma hawk. Warden—H. C. Howland, Wausau. Marshal—A. B. Wanty, Wausau. Conductor—George Drake, Wausau. Chaplain—Joseph Peterson, Merrill. Inner Guardian—A. D. Stonberg, Tomahawk. Outer Guardian—T. C. Wilke, Wau sau. George Drake, deputy grand marshal, installed the officers. The Rebekahs had their meetings in Castle hall. Among the Rebekahs present was Mrs. Dagmar Nelson of Antigo, vice president of the assembly, who had charge of the special meeting, when a school of instruction was con ducted. This was followed by the district meeting, when various dis cussions and talks came up pertaining to this order. During the afternoon Mrs. Elizabeth Pomeroy of this city, was honored with a Certificate of Perfection, as was also Mrs. Ivy Nel son of Merrill. These members were examined in the unwritten work of tlieh Rebekah lodge by Mrs. Dagmar Nelson and found letter perfect. At the business session of the Rebekah order, the following were named dis trict officers: President—Mrs. Clara Buliler, Mer rill. Vice Pres.—Mrs. Kathleen Poole, Wausau.

The Rebekahs had their dinner at Castle hall, during which time a gen eral social time was enjoyed. In the evening a 6:30 o’clock ban quet was served at Castle hall for both the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs. This was largely attended by visitors, local members and friends. During the serving of the delicious banquet, piano and violin music was given by a mus ical trio, including Stanley Howarth, Harry Sisson am' Edwin Poole. It was necessary to hurry the evening’s program somewhat, as the visiting delegation departed on the north bound St. Paul passenger train for their respective homes. J. M. Howarth opened the program in an appropriate way, making a few brief remarks on the occasion, and informing those present that Rev. Wilson of Merrill, who was on the program for an address, was unable to attend because of a message from Washington, notifying him of his brother’s serious illness, and that he was to depart for that place. Mr. Howarth stated, however, that there was a man in the gathering, who could fill the place on the program made vacant by Rev. Wilson, and he introduced A. J. Caldwell of Wausau, formerly of Oconto. Mr. Caldwell de livered a beautiful address on “Odd fellowship,” telling of the growth of the order and the significance of this organization. He praised the work of the Rebekahs very highly, and em phasized the fact that where a great deal of good work was being done, you always found that the women were among the active ones. He spoke of the home for boys and girls and the aged at Green Bay, and how diligently the Rebekahs are working to keep it up the way it should be, and how ex cellently they are progressing in this. Following this address, a member of the visiting delegation, arose and stated that the visitors desired to ex tend their thanks to the local Odd Fellows and Rebekahs for the good meeting and enjoyable time they had during their stay here. Mrs. Dagmar Nelson was called on next, and she told in a very interest ing way the splendid work being ac complished by the Rebekahs, taking for example the home at Green Bay. Mrs. Nelson stated that she is very much in favor of the joint meetings now being conducted, and the con genially expressed. She reported hav ing had a very delightful time at the district meeting on Friday. Rev. C. F. Hinton of St. John’s Episcopal church in this city, was on the program for a patriotic address. He stated that it was impossible for him to talk on “Patriotism” in the short time he had to give his address, as it is such a broad subject to cover, but he delivered a remarkable talk on present conditions here and abroad. The speaker laid much stress upon the atrocities and outrages practiced by the German Imperial government, giving startling accounts of wliat they are doing today. Rev. Hinton spoke in an eloquent way of the American boys, who have gone to defend their country, and emphasized the neces sary support they need from the peo ple in this country, while they are away, in order to return home vic torious. It was decided to hold the next district meeting at Merrill in Septem ber. WORTH KNOWING An army corps is 60.000 men. An infantry division is 19,000 men. An infantry brigade is 7.000 men.

DON'T BURY YOUR BOM) When you and your neighbor have bought your Liberty bonds, don’t take them home and hide them in the cup board. Take them to your country banker and have him give you cer tificates of deposit for the bonds. Your banker can take these bonds to a Federal Reserve bank and borrow money for your use in case you sud denly find yourself in need of funds. Hiding a bond in your stocking at this time is just as bad as hoarding money. Keep the bonds and the mon ey in circulation and the country will pull through this crisis all right. Catarrhal Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they 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 rumb ling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is the result. Un 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. Fall’s Catarrh Medicine acts through the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Catarrhal Deafness that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Medicine. Circulars free. All druggists, 75c. F. J. CHENEY & CO..
