Marathon County’s Fourth Contingent of
Selected Men (Volunteers) Highly
Honored Before Departure
Leaving Home on a Glorious Day; Escorted to the
Train by Thousands of Our Citizens; Band Played
Whistles Blew; Crowd Cheered
The realization of war is constantly
brought home to us. On Friday morn
ing. March 29, 1918, the fourth con
tingent of selected men from Mara
thon county, numbering thirty-one, de
parted for Camp Grant, Rockford, 111
Last Thursday afternoon the boys
wore notified to appear at the court
house before the exemption boards, at
which time they were inducted into
the military service of the United
States. They were given instructions
and took the oath, and immediately
following entered into the service of
their country. During the afternoon
they also had their pictures taken.
The Rotary club of Wausau had
planned a banquet in honor of the
boys, which was to have been served
at the First Methodist church by the
ladies, on Thursday evening, but it
was impossible to gc-t all the boys
together on that evening, so it was
necessary to cancel this affair. The
boys, however, living in Wausau, spent
the evening at their respective homes
with relatives and friends. Tickets
for the Bijou theatre were given each
boy on Thursday for the evening
show, and ail those who wanted to go
to this moving picture house could
do so.
On Good Friday morning, at an early
hour, our citizens began to gather at
the court house square to get in line
for the parade and do honor to the
members of the contingent leaving on
this day on a special train on the Mil
waukee & St. Paul railroad for Camp
Grant. Citizens, young and old, and
from every walk in life took part in
the big parade and escorted the boys
to the depot. The line of march was
headed by the band followed by the
Tenth Separate Company in full uni
form, the exemption boards, selected
men, school children carrying flags,
and lastly citizens. The procession
was formed on the corner of Fourth
and Jefferson streets, during which
time the band gave a concert in the
band stand on the court house square,
followed by the march down Third
street, turning on Scott and going di
rectly to the coaches awaiting them,
where they left with smiling faces
and will prepare to fight for a worthy
Upon arriving at the place where
the hoys entrained, the band played
several patriotic selections, while the
fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers and
friends of the boys crowded around
them to bid them farewells and God-
Speed. Tear-stained faces were in
evidence, but even so the boys were
as brave as any that have left Wau
sau and Marathon county, and as the
train started to move away from the
immense crowd, every one cheered,
whistles blew and the band played,
and helped in a large measure to
console “the folks at home’’ that the
boys were leaving for a worthy and
needy cause, and one for which we
must make big sacrifices if necessary.
A large number of Marathon county
boys are now stationed at Camp Grant,
and we can feel assured that wdien this
contingent reached camp they were
met with open arms by boys from
here, who have been there for some
time. They will get-to-gethef and talk
about a great many things. For in
stance the boys who nave been at
this camp for some time will want to
know about every body back home,
etc., etc., while the boys leaving here
on Friday will be getting more and
more anxious about the work they are
supposed to do for Uncle Sam, and
will keep the full fledged Marathon
county soldiers at Camp Grant busy
answering questions as to the novelty
of the training for war work and so

by the boys on Friday left quite a

A Great Speech Delivered in Wausau
On Thursday Evening by the
Candidate for U. S. Senator
Last Thursday evening the opera
house could hardly contain the large
audience, which gathered to listen
to the patriotic address of Joseph E.
Davies, democratic candidate for the
United States Senate. At 8 o’clock,
Mr. Davies appeared on the platform
and was given a greeting seldom ac
corded to a public man by a Wausau
audience. He w r as accompanied by
Attorney Fred W. Genrich, -chairman
of the evening.
C. H. Ingraham conducted the sing
ing of patriotic airs previous to the
address. He has the happy faculty
of making everybody sing.
Mr. Genrich, after a few brief re
marks in which he emphasized the
necessity of a sure and success
ful outcome of the present war
was far more important in the minds
of the people, than were the questions
of party politics, introduced Mr.
Davies, who, at the outset, paid a high
compliment to our city and its people,
having come to know many of our
prominent men by frequent visits to
Mr. Davies talked for nearly two
hours, the major part of his address
was upon the present world war. He
covered the great question in a most
masterful way and with an earnest
ness which carried conviction to the
minds of those who listened to him.
No piatter whether the man who heard
him was for or against him, politically
in order to be true to himself, was
compelled to admit that it was the best
and most convincing speech on the war
situation, in all its phases, that had
been delivered here. What he had to
say was said fearlessly and in langu
age plainly understood. When he
had finished there was not a man in
the audience who did not know right
where he stopd on the vital questions
of the day and what he would do if
elected. He placed himself square on
record, thus:
“I pledge you that I will aggressive
ly support President Wilson, that this
war may be conclusively won. This
is a war against war—a war *.o insure
the future peace of the world. My
support shall be constructive not criti
cal: it shall be helpful not harassing;
it shall be directed toward aiding not
hindering the conduct of the war. I
shall fight all effort that looks toward
hindering its progress or hampering
protection to our fighting men.
“I firmly believe in the justice of
our cause. I believe that this war is
a conflict to determine which set of
moral principles shall rule the world
and civilization, and I take pride in
the leadership of my country in this
fight for the masses of men against the
material power and world-grasping
ambition of the military masters of
Germany, who threaten all that we
have that we have or may hope for
and would impose the rule of the
sword and the power of might upon
the world. I believe that the issue
of the conflict will determine whether
the gospel of Calvary or the theory of
the Corsican, the rule of Christian
justice or the rule of power shall
sway the future civilization of the
“I shall at all times stand for the
protection of American lives and honor
and the perpetuation of those interna
tional rules of conduct which are the
expression of centuries of development
and one of the foundations of civiliza
On the political situation he re
marked that:
“Party politicians are trying to whip
up old partisan feeling. It won’t work.
This is the most serious time of the
war. It is our war now. We must
win the war.” It was his reply to the
charge of partisanship by republican
leaders taking part in the Lenroot
campaign. He continued:
“The responsibilities are lodged with
the commander-in-chief of the army
and navy—the president of the United
States. The task he has is a colossal
one. The burdens of President Lin
coln. Nothing could be more unfor
tunate than disunion between the ex
ecutive and legislative branches of <he
government. For three years respon
sibility of winning this war by the
people. He has called to his assist
ance some 01 the ablest and best
qualified republicans, such as Messrs.
Cochrane, Vanderlip. Davidson, Hoov
er. and others. The task that con
fronts him is the most tremendous task
that has ever confronted any man. It
will exhaust our greatest generosity.
If there ever was a time when patriot
ism demanded that politics be forgot
ten it is now.
“How does Wisconsin want to help?
Does it wish to help begrudgingly and
critically, or generously and directly?
If the character of help which my op
ponent is to offer in the future is to be
measured by his present criticism and
his attacks upon the commander-in
chief of the army, then Wisconsin will
not give through his election the full
measure of help which this country
is expecting. The great undercurrents
j of the people are moving swiftly and
I strongly with the purposes and desires
1 to uphold the man who is bearing their
J burden.
“That is what is giving so much
consternation and panic in the oppos
! ing camp. I repeat again, as I have
Jon every occasion, Uiat I seek the
J support of all men who want to help
I their president and I seek the senate
| as an American and not as a partisan.”
Indirectly answering Gov. Philipp's
speech of Wednesday, Mr. Davies said:
"There are those who say that the
government is permitting profiteering
j and that this has justified Socialism.
This is an insult to some of the finest
men in the government. It is an insult
to the republicans and democrats who
have been helping to win the war when
others sit on the sidelines and criticize.
It is an attempt to create, false ani-

mosities in an hour of peril. If some
of the people who do nothing but criti
cize would have* President Wilson’s
job I would like to see how far they
could get. There is a real menace in
the preachments of men who ought to
know better. They are trying to put
a cloak over the eyes of the people
and bury them in economic issues
when civilization is in jeopardy. You
want criticism when tne sky is clear,
but when the seas are heavy you do
not want criticism, but help.”
“The words of the vice president,”
said Mr. Davies, “have been misstated
by republican politicians. Vice Presi
dent Marshall is a man of the greatest
patriotism and ’.he distortion that is
being practiced will not get very far
with the people. Mr. Marshall did
not impugn the loyalty of republicans,
except a few who ha ,r e gone wrong.
What Mr. Marshall said about these
was nothing to what the two republi
can candidates were saying about each
other just before the primary.’’
On Easter morning an appropriate
program was given at the First Meth
odist church by the Sunday school
children, the choir and others. Fol
lowing the organ prelude, “Angel’s
Serenade,” played by Prof. C. L. Hoyt,
the “Star Spangled Banner” was sung
by all present, and the flag salute
given. The regular prayer, response,
responsive reading, offertory, etc., was
given, and the singing of the hymn,
“Christ the Lord.” Caro! Jane Ander
son was next on the program, and
gave a reading, “Beginners.” Dean
Crawford rendered a violin solo .“Men
delssohn’s Spring Song.” A solo num
ber, entitled “The Resurrection” was
taken by Mrs. E. L. Boehm. “The
Little Boy Who Was Afraid to Die,”
was a reading given by Mildred Hud
son. The Methodist church choir fol
lowed with an anthem, “Hosanna.” A
group of two songs, “The Blue Birds”
and “Lily Bells Ring” were sung by
the girls from the Junior department
of the Sunday school. “How Betsy
Made the Flag,” and "Little White
Snow Drops” were two songs rendered
by the Primary department. Bernice
Page and Angues Koch were on the
program for a recitation, “An Easter
Story.” Miss Dickert’s Sunday school
class sang, “The Little Flowers Came
Thru the Ground.” The next three
numbers included a cornet solo, “Ser
enade” by J. E. Cole; song, “March”
by Miss Carter’s Sunday school class,
and a song, “Sacred Lullaby” by the
Ladies’ Chorus. The program closed
with a song out of the hymnal and
the organ postlude, “Grand Choeur.”
An Easter song service in the na
ture of a union service was given
at the First Presbyterian church Sun
day evening. The program opened
with an organ prelude, “Processional
to Calvary” (from “The Crucifixion”)
The choir then rendered a group of
two songs, “Fling Wide the Gates”
and “Jerusalem.” Rev. D. J. Williams
gave the scripture reading, after
which a hymn was sung by all pres
ent. “They Have Taken Away My
Lord” and “Christ Is Risen” were the
next two songs given by the choir.
Prayer and organ response followed,
after which the offering was taken up.
At this time Mr. Ward played the
harp offertory. The Ladies’ Chorus
sang, “List’ The Cherubic Hosts”
(from “The Holy City”) with harp
accompaniment. Rev. Williams gave
a short address on the Easter season.
The last number given by the choir
was “Te Deum in B Flat.” This was
followed by the singing of the “Star
Spangled Banner,” benediction and
“Easter Postlude.” Mrs. P. L. Sisson
is director of the choir, and Miss
Wanda Hopp the organist. The pro
gram was a delightful one, and also
appropriate to the day. A large num
ber were present to enjoy an evening
of song.
The Junior Red Cross society of the
Franklin school has recently sent in an

National Committeeman Martin
Analyzes Primary Vote—Says
Lenroot Was Saved by
Democratic Vote.
Joseph Martin, Democratic National
committeeman, in a statement issued
In Milwaukee, refuted the published
statement of Chairman West of the Re
publican State Central committee, that
support of Congressman Lenroot was
necessary to defeat Victor L. Berger,
the Socialist candidate.
“All can agree upon one proposi
tion,” •saiC Jlr. Martin, “and that is
that Berger is the menace in the sen
atorial election, not only to Wisconsin,
but to America. The question to be
determined purely from an American
and not from a p. rtisan viewpoint Is
whether Joseph E. Davies, the Demo
cratic nominee for senator, or Con
gressman Lenroot, the Republican
nominee, should be picked to make
certain Berger’s defeat.
“Chairman West seeks to demon
strate by the primary vote that Mr.
Lenroot can muster more support in
the election than Mr. Davies. The fact
is, as Chairman West and Mr. Lenroot
himself well know, the Republican par
ty would today be under the, odium of
having nominated La Follette’s candi
date had it not been for the support
given Mr. Lenroot in the primaries by
loyal Democrats.
Saved G. O. P. Disgrace.
“It is safe to say that at least 25,000
Democrats went into the Republican
primaries and voted for Mr. Lenroot
for the sole purpose of saving one of
the great major parties of the country
from the disgrace of naming the La
Follette candidate. The Lenroot man
agers themselves, in public appeals is
sued through the press, called on loyal
Democrats to support Mr. Lenroot In
the primaries. In these appeals they
advanced the argument that inasmuch
as the nomination of Mr. Davies by the
Democrats appeared certain, It was the
duty of the Democrats as Americans
to aid the Republicans in nominating
Mr. Lenroot.
“With that fact established, and It
cannot be denied by the Lenroot lead
ers who issued these appeals, it Is
easy to demonstrate from the primary
returns that Democratic voters brought
about Mr. Lenroot’s nomination.
“Even with this aid irom Democrats,
Mr. Lenroot only defeated Thompson,
according to the returns, by 2,597. This
slight margin is proof of the weakness
of Mr. Lenroot’s candidacy. This
weakness grows when it is appreciated
that thousands of those who voted for
Mr. I.enroot in the primaries voted for
him solely to prevent the nomination
of Mr. Thompson and will not support
him in the election.
100 Per Cent Loyal.
“Now. as to the respective strength
of Mr. Davies and Mr. Lenroot. Mr.
Davies is 100 per cent loyal. The pres
ident of the United States has an
nounced to the nation that Mr. Davies
has ‘proved true’ upon all the ques
tions relating to the war, both before
and since the United States was forced
Into the conflict with Germany. Mr.
Davies has nothing to defend. Can as
much be said for Mr. Lenroot? Presi
dent Wilson has said that the McLe
more resolution, the embargo issue and
the armed neutrality measure present
ed the first opportunity to supply the
acid test in our country to disclose
true loyalty and genuine Americanism.
Mr. Lenroot’s attitude upon these three
great vital issues was obstructive. Will
the loyal voters of Wisconsin —and I
am proud to say that they far outnum
ber the disloyalists In the state —be
more apt to support the man who has
•proved true’ or the man who was an
obstructionist in a critical period in
the nation’s history? The answer Is
obvious. Davies is the man behind
whom loyal Wisconsin should unite to
defeat Berger.
Can’t Better Primary Vote.

Thinking the animal made a mistake
In not knowing whom she was kicking
or it was his fault because he forgot
to give her the usual chew of tobacco,
Fred Wales of Grass Valley, Cal., who
carried his arm in a sling for some
time as the* result of a kick from Bes

years for injuring him.
The mule is known to every em
ployee of the mine, 450 in all, and
while there Is no affection for her
among 449 of them, they all have a
wholesome respect for her in spite of
her contrary disposition. It is a mine
classic that she kicks the airpipe two
feet above her for exercise.
With Fred Wales, however, it is dif
ferent. He has worked with Bessie
for fourteen years and has become at
tached to the animal. He excuses her
vagaries as an indulgent mother con
dones the actions of a spoiled child.
It is merely a matter of tempera
ment. he says, and the other men do
not understand her. His faith was
shaken temporarily, but not for long.
In the physician’s office he took of
fense at a suggestion that the inule
should be killed on account of her
viciousness and to her defense.
“It was perhaps my fault; it certain
ly was not Iters. Bessie either did not
know who it was when she kicked or
I had forgotten to give her the usual
chew of tobacco. I am willing to take
all the blame.”

industries and French creations.
It is in France that we find the
work of the most skilful hands, the

Temperament of Camels.
Bearing an innate grudge against all
restraint and all who restrain him, the
camel will use the great strength of
his long legs to kick his keepers or the
dogs which guard him In the waste
places, but in the presence of ene
mies, among wolves or other beasts
of prey, he is a coward, forgets the
very use of his legs and proves his
erratic temper by screaming *nd spit
ting in terror. No camel want.' to be
loved, and no one familiar with camels
ever entertains the least affection for
them. They make savages of what
ever people breeds them. The man who
owns and uses camels cannot live In
a city, he cannot travel the highways
through cultivated country, he cannot
have a permanent abiding place. He
is doomed to live in deserts and arid
grasslands, to follow the paths that
are lined with evergreen thorns, tama
risks and bitter weeds, to drink the
saline water that his evil tempered
beasts prefer and to avoid the haunts
of men and horses as the horseman
circles the deserts, says Rodney Gil
bert in Asia.
