First Comes the Purpose
Surely you have some good purpose in mind for which you will need money a year from now. Next Comes the Plan You will want some plan to follow by which you can save that amount within the year. Adopt a Thrift Plan There is a plan in our Thrift department to suit every amount, therefore, one to suit you. Come in tomorrow, start your amount and — “Save Something Each Week/' CITIZENS STATE BANK State, County and City Depositary . The Bank Behind the Thrift Movement W. E. HUDTLOFF. Cashier - THE BUND AND THE MUTILATED By Dr. ESTHER LOVEJOY IN the years to come this war will prove a blessing to the blind. Anew world is being evolved. Nature has at least one extraordinary sense in reserve for those who lose any of the five ordinary senses. The blind feel things that are not within reach. They are conscious of vibrations that are not perceptible to seeing men. The sightless learn to read very quickly by the Braille method. It is interesting to watch the face of a blind man as his fingers pass over the upraised dots of a Braille book and his mind perceives the mysteries recorded there for him. They have special stenographic machines and special print ing presses. Books and magazines are translated into the written language of the sightless. Men blinded in battle are acquiring great skill in the textile arts, as moulders, and in other industries where a highly developed sense of touch is essential to good work. The higher type of blind men have great personal charm. Their souls seem nearer the surface. They are pe culiarly beloved people, and thei: clairvoyance makes them conscious of the kindness and affection with which they are regarded. Naturally they react to it. Perhaps that is why they usually seem so happy and cheerful. Unfortunately there are forms of mutilation which have the opposite effect. When a man knows that he is re pulsive to every man, woman and child who looks upon him; when he shrinks from th reflection of his own disfigured face in the mirror, and udder at the strange sound of his own voice, he wants to r ... A great deal is 1 ’ 6 done for these mutilated men. They are being refittea with arms and legs. Plastic surgery is doing its part, too, in the way of restoring palates, teeth and facial contour, and the American Red Cross in Paris is attempting to make life more livable for them by providing masks which restore their original features. They will be useful members of society, but the,soul of man craves more than service. Life and liberty are precious possessions, but the pursuit of happiness is the dearest right of man. We are all alike. We want to go through life with the sweet illusion that the blue bird of happiness is just within reach, and this illusion is almost impossible to the disfigured man. It is the sacred duty of all those who have been bene fited by their sacrifice to leave nothing undone to restore their usefulness; to employ every art to increase their men tal and physical powers and the charm of personalities, to the end that their lives may be enriched rather than impov erished by the fortunes of war. How Would You Get Rid Of Miles of Barbed Wire? One of the Many Problems the Red Cross Has to Meet Have you ever thought what strange ainl battling problems must come up tc the Red Cross workers when they start out to rebuild u French town —just the problem of the barbed wire, for In stance? This letter tells It: “We have nearly every day about half a dozen German prisoners work ing amongst us, who a.e eseorted In to wo~k in the morning by a pollu and culled for in the evening. They ap pear quite harmless, but we have too many evidences all around us to prove that their race Is quite to the contrary. “You should see the barbed wire— miles and miles of It. How any one could ever get through It, let alone un der tire. Is beyond me. !t's usually The Red Cross Answers By THEODOSIA GARRISON Of the Vigilantes. Dear God, to leave this sheltered place wherefrom I may not go To give my service to a world torn through with war and woe, To heal the wounds of broken men, to mend the shattered mind. To lend my hands unto the maimed, my eyes unto the blind; To give a woman back her man from out the very dead— “ Hut 1 will do this for you,” said the great Cross of Red. Nay, but there are little towns that once were white and fair Now burned and bleak anti desolate Tnld blackened fields and bare; If I might bring its people back to find there as before The staunch roof, the decent hearth, the vines about the door; If i might lift a frightened child and leave It comforted— “But I -.ill do this for you,” said the great Cross of Red. “You may heal the wounded and you may guide the blind. You may bring new comfort and joy to humankind. If so witbiu your sheltered place you give me for your part The strength withiu your two hands, the pity at your heart; Through you, from yoo. of you I am, by your own heart-strings led, i rail but if you fail me'*—ald C*e great Cross of Red. colled and stretched around iron stakes or crosses about four feet long, and the whole thing makes a waist high mass sometimes T 5 or 20 feet wide. There are really acres of It arourd here, and when you think how many strips of it there are, stretching from Belgium to Switzerland—why, it’s go ing to be a real problem after the war to get it all up and out of the way. I bet a lot of people walk Into it through the snow this winter. “We came across unexploded shells now and then aud hand gr.-uades of various shapes and sizes alsj; but, be lieve me, we leave them alone. There are four on the wall In our back yard and several in a field near by.” SEVENTH CONTINGENT OF SELECTED MEN LEAVE MARATHON COUNTY The Usual Patriotic Demonstration Was Given on Saturday Morning In Honor of the County’s Selected Men Leaving for Military Training The newspapers are called upon of ten during these times to write of the departure of America’s splendid man hood for military training camps, where they receive instructions in warfare, and finally are sent to the front line for actual fighting. Marathon county’s seventh conting ent selected men, numbering sixty seven, were called out the past week to go to Columbus Barracks, Ohio, and appeared at the court house in this city Friday afternoon at which time roll call was taken and the young men were inducted into the military service of their country. They were then excused until Saturday morning at nine o’clock, when they again gath ered at the court house, for roll call and to receive final instructions before their departure. The weather man handed out the very finest kind of weather on this particular day, although it did look a little doubtful in the early morning, it was an ideal May day. Again the huge crowd of relatives and friends gathered in the court house square to do honor to our brave young lads, and to b’d them farewell and God speed. During the morning hour, previous to the departure, the selects assembled in the circuit court room of the court house, where L. H. Cook took roll call, after which the men were divided up into squads. Charles E. Pearson was appointed captain of the first district, with the following squad leaders: Gust Amelung, William Dallman, Gus tav Frank and Fred Beilke. Orville Sulir was elected captain of the second district with Adolph Holub, Jr., Fred erick Braun, George Bahr, Louis Laffin and Louis Ziebell as squad leaders, enroute to Columbus Barracks. S. B. Tobey, superintendent of our city schools, wa3 called upon to de liver a short farewell message to the boys from the citizens of Marathon county, and said in part: “Soldiers of Marathon county, sol diers of the state of Wisconsin, soldiers of the United States, soldiers of the world, yours is an honor such as never before has been granted to any army; yours a responsibility the greatest ever yet entrusted to men. “You are going forth to fight one of the largest and best equipped armies the world has ever seen. They are fighting to rivet the chains of human slavery more tightly upon their de luded minions. You are to fight for the freedom of the world and the rights of man to the end of time. No nobler sentiment could inspire your mind; no holier cause could steel your arms. “You will need the clearest brain, the strongest body and the highest patriotism for your stupendous task. In every camp on every battle front, the prayers of your mothers, your sis ters, and your sweethearts will be with you and will guard you and inspire you. While you are fighting the battles of freedom, we of the army reserves will be doing our utmost to provide everything needful to insure your triumph.” A beautiful American flag was then presented to the contingent by Mr. Tobey in behalf of C. A. Christianson, a Spanish-Anierican War veteran, with the following remarks: “I want to present to you this flag as all that is best and highest and holiest in the world. We expect you to keep it unsullied to bring it back without a stain as having inspired you to the highest honor and the noblest courage in all the vicissitudes that you may encounter.” Judge Louis Marclietti also gave a short farewell address, as follows: “It may be presumptious in me to speak a few words to you before your departure, at least some people may think so, but nevertheless, I will take a few moments of your time if you will permit me, just to tell you, that the people of Marathon county are proud of you, proud because you have so promptly and readily responded to the call of your country, to the call to rally round the flag, which phrase has a deep meaning in these perilous times. “The flag of our country, the stars and stripes, represent the honor of the United States of America—and we are proiid of you also because we have an inward consciousness that that honor will be safe in your keeping, that you will do your duty in war as well as in peace, that you will come up to the best traditions of the American citizen soldier, and that your conduct will reflect honor upon our common country, and especially on Wisconsin and Marathon county, which is your home, of which you may justly feel proud, “These yuung ladles here will re gard it as a favor if you will accept from them by way of decoration, a flower or two not only to show you their appreciation, but the apprecia tion of the people of Marathon coun ty.” Following are the young ladies: Misses Hester Jones. Josephine Sturte vant, Marion Wilson, Gretchen Mor gan. Florence Duquette, Gertrude Pop challa, Linda Adams and Eva Bernier and Mrs. V. C. Edgar. The singing of two patriotic songs, “To the Old Country,” and the “Star Spangled Banner,” by the senior girls of the High school, were rendered after which all joined in the singing of “America.” During the time the selects were in the circuit court room going through the usual doings, as has been custom ary in the past, the crowd outside was growing, and the big parade was be ing formed. The school children and teachers gathered at their respective school buildings and marched to Scott street, carrying fl?~s, also taking part in the march. The line of march formed on the corner of Jefferson and Fourth streets, was as follows: Uncle Sam. Band, Teuth Separate Company, in full uniform, members of Exemption Boards, Council of Defense representa tives. Selects District No. 1, Loyalty Legion representatives, Selects Dis trict No. 2, Liberty Bond salesmen, Junior Volunteer company, school children and citizens. The procession marched from Jefferson street to Third street, then turning on Scott, and go ing directlv to the coaches awaiting them on the C. M. & St. P. R. R. tracks. Thousands of people had gath ered at the depot grounds to see the seventh contingent off. During the short time allowed tor the bidding of farewells, there were many faces with sad expressions, and many a tear was wiped away. As the train slowly moved away from the huge crowd, the band played, and everybody shouted “Good-Bves,” “write soon,” etc. The band, Tenth Separate Company. Liber ty Bond salesman. Junior Volunteer company and .ihers formed the march back up town again. Following is the list of young men comprising the seventh contingent: FIRST DISTRICT John H. Koehler. Hamburg.

The “housewives” are never forgot ten, and a fellow would not be entirely equipped without one of these neces saries. The boys will have to do their own sewing while at camp, and everything from a pin to a thimble is included in these “housewives” for sewing. These were given out by Mrs. J. M. Lull Friday afternoon at roll call. As the American flags passed by our citizens during the march on Satur day, it was noticed that hats were taken off. It has been reported that all along the way to Columbus Barracks the selects were enthusiastically wel comed in the small towns as well as in the cities. Many were out in large numbers" to greet the lads at the various stopping places. One of the big features of the par ade on Saturday morning was the car rying of a Liberty Loan flag by four of the Liberty Loan drive hustlers, into which was thrown money for a tobacco fund for the selects. Moiiey was continually thrown into the “col lection plate,” all the way to the depot, after which the money was turned over to Orville Suhr, captain of the second district. Mr. Suhr did not count the money until after entrain ment, but the committee gathering the “tobacco fund,” placed the amount over seventy-five dollars. A mention should be made of Uncle Sam, who headed the parade. Adlai Petli was costumed to represent Uncle Sam, and deserves congratulations on his splendid appearance. Several of the Liberty Loan bond salesmen in the city formed in line and also marched in the parade. Each one carried a large placard advertis ing the loan. Many clever sayings were read on the placard as the par ade passed, and the salesmen were “bubbling over’” with Liberty Loan enthusiasm. LETTER FROM LIEUT. I>. S. BUR NETT TO WILLIAM ALLEN “Somewhere in England, April 11, 1918. Mr. William Allen, Wausau, Wisconsin. My dear Sir: Thought I would just drop you a line to let you know I am alive and in good fighting trim. The doings in the I. O. O. F. lodge and the service flag presented, in which there is a star for me, was sent me by my little daughter in a news paper clipping, and I want to thank my many friends for the honor and place they have thus accorded me. Your poem regarding the flag was also sent me, and I was very much pleased with it and the sentiment therein expressed, is really the senti ment of the boys from Wausau, I can assure you. We are doing a very important work here and expect to finish very soon; and then we go to the battle front in France and do Pioneer Engineer duty there. We are working hard early and late to complete our job aere, so we can get into the real game. We eat good and sleep comfortably and every one is in good snape. Hope this letter will find you feel ing as fine as I feel, Billy, and that you will keep on boosting for the good cause. Us fellows over here ap preciate good backing at home. Give my regards and good wishes to your sister, Mrs. Pomeroy, and re member me to all my friends, whom you may meet. So long Brother, FIRST LIEUT. D. S. BURNETT, 476th Aero Squadron, A. E. F.

Every one should adopt a diet suited to his age and occupation. Those who have weak stomachs need to be especially care ful and should eat slowly and masti cate their food thoroughly. It is also important that they keep their bowels regular. When they become consti pated or when they feel dull and stupid after eating, they should take Cham berlain’s Tablets to strengthen the stomach and move the bowels. They are easy to take and pleasant in effect. WAUSAU PILOT NEWS FROM RAYMOND J. REISER This ofPce received another letter from Raymond J. Reiser Saturday morning stating that he had returned safely to this country from another successful trip across the Atlantic. The Pilot has published several arti cles on Mr. Reiser’s exciting experien ces enroute to European points and back home. He is a first class yeoman in the U. S. N., on board the U. S S Kanawha. The following is taken from his letter received on Saturday, which will be interesting to his many Wausau friends: “New York City, N. Y„ Apr. 29, 1918. Here goes for a few lines to let you know that I am back in the good old U. S. A. (Gods Countrj) once more. We had a fair trip this time, but the seas are still rough, but soon will be calmed down, so that life on an ocean wave will be worth- living. Our trip was uneventful outside of a little ex citement that we had one evening about six o’clock, two days off the coast of Scotland, on our return jour ney, when we discovered that we had nearly rammed a submarine without knowing it. The ship was sailing along on water that was almost as smooth as a pane of glass this particu lar evening, and the captain suddenly noticed a peculiar wake that circled almost way around the ship. On tak ing a close observation, he discovered a periscope coming out of the water, about two hundred yards off our star board. He immediately threw the stern of the ship to the submarine and then the gunners proceeded to show the German commander how close we could drop shells to his periscope, and I think he soon became aware that the ship he was after was an American (judging from the close vicinity the shells were dropping), so he left to seek some vessel whose gunners were not quite so accurate in their aim. We fired twenty-one shots at him in the course of a few seconds, the shells were leaving the guns so fast that five of them were spinning through the air over the water toward the target be fore one hit the water, and the best part of it was they were all dropping in about the same place although we were zig-zagging and making a speed of sixteen knots. Five of the shells ex ploded, whether from striking the tar get or whether they were just poor shells we could not say, but we could see the black smoke arise from the ex plosions. The shells have an explo sive nose and when they strike the ob ject they explode and blow it all to pieces. We are in New York at present and will remain here at least a week for repairs before loading another cargo. One of the things that is being done, is the building of a large platform on the main deck upon which we will carry two large sea planes. They will also use the platform as place from which to ascend and descend. In a short time all ships in the overseas service will be equipped with aircraft for protection from air raids, etc. Our crew is now allowed to wear the stripe of gold lace and gold star. The stripe is a quarter of an inch wide and about four inches in length and is placed diagonally across the sleeve of the blouse and the star is placed about an inch and one-half above the stripe. These are the same as is worn by the officers. It can only be worn by navy men who have seen at least six months’ actual service overseas. We consider it a great honor to be able to wear them, and many a sailor chap who has never been over is just itching to get there, so that he also may be able to wear them. A crew who has made three complete round trips to the European continent are allowed to wear just the bar, but if they have had six months overseas service or have made six round trips through the war zone, regardless of the time, they add the star. Tomorrow we take part in a big Liberty Loan parade in full marching uniform, and landing force equipment. You know a sailor has to be a soldier as well as a sailor. Our equipments are provided with trenching tools, etc., similar to those of the army. Today I was fortunate enough to talk to some of our boys, who returned to the states after having been on the battle front and over the top. They are here convalescing and to do Lib erty Loan work. Most of them have received wounds. I also saw the crack company of Frenchmen, who came over from the battle front. They have the reputation of going through hell for France if need be. New York is very patriotic for the Liberty Loan and demonstrations are in session all of the time in the down town districts. Before I bring this letter to a close I have a little surprise to spring. Mrs. Charles K. Gaffnay, 401 Rose Hill Place, Elizabeth, N. J., announces the engagement of her daughter, Kathe rine, to Raymond J. Reiser, Yeoman First Class, U. S. N. The marriage will take place in the near future, pos sibly before he leaves again for “over there.” Extend my regards to my Wausau friends, also the Pilot and its many readers. RAYMOND J. REISER.” BUSINESS COLLEGE NOTES Edna Grambort has withdrawn from school to accept a position as bookkeeper for the Wausau Ice & Fuel Cos. in this city. Louis Doepke, one of our former students who is employed as book keeper at Fifield by the Patterson Lumber Cos, called on old friends at the Business College last week. K. E. Parsons, vice-president of the Central Wis. Supply Cos. of Beaver Dam, was a business caller last Tues day. Mrs. LaVerne Cauley began a course in the stenographic depart ment during the past week. Lona Firnstahl and Verona Jackson have l>een assisting with the work in the office during the past few days. C. S. Patterson of the Patterson Lbr. Cos , of Fifield, was a business caller last Monday. L. Smith, U. S. revenue collector, made us a call last Tuesday and ex plained the rules governing war taxes on dances. C II Graham of the Wausau Ice & Fuel Cos., was a business caller last Friday. Tests in spelling were given in all classes last Friday. 11. S. Wright, Geo. Derby and Mrs, 11. Brazell were business callers dur ing the past week. The girls of the stenotype class demonstrated and sold Mil-ko-ko in the New Meat market last Saturday for the benefit of the Red Cross. The proceeds were very satisfactory and another demonstration will be given next Saturday. A. A. Damon called on his daugh ter, Miss Ina, last Saturday while In this city serving on the Exemption Board. Plans have been made for the W. B. C. ball to be held at Rothschild Pavilion, next Friday evening, May 10. The ball is being given for all old students and friends of the business college and the proceeds will be dona ted to the Red Cross fund. The regular meeting of the W. B. C. Literary Society was held last Friday afternoon. After the install ation of officers by Mr. Brown, several of the boys gave short talks on topics which had been previously assigned. A saxaphone solo by Roy Seim, and the reading of the college paper by Lorain Smalley, completed the pro gram. THE MrZaL WAUSAU, BIG STORE WIS. ZION’S CHURCH SERVICE FLAG PROPERLY DEDICATED The congregation of Zion’s Evangel ical Lutheran churcl had special and impressive ceremonies at its church last Friday evening, it being the oc casion of the dedicating of the service flag, which has on its field of white seventeen stars. These stars repre sent that number of members of this church, who have now left their homes and church to fight for their nation. Rev. A. J. Soldan, Evangelical Luther an chaplain at Camp Grant, Rockford, 111., was present on this evening, and assisted the pastor, Rev. George Sehroedel, in the services. Rev. Sol dan was a former classmate of Rev. Sehroedel of Wausau. The following covers only in part the beautiful address delivered by Rev. Soldan: The chaplain explained the daily routine of camp life, saying among other things, that the first lesson a fel low learns after arriving at a training camp, is obedience, which is a lesson all of our young people should learn. The boys are taught to keep their eyes and ears open and their mouths shut. Rev. Soldan went on stating that it was a pleasure to work among the Lutheran boys in the cantonments, with the possible exception of a few back-sliders. Most of them love their religion and their church. They at tend services regularly and are not ashamed to profess their faith and to partake of Holy Communion. The chaplain said: “This is a mystery to some people, and I have often been asked how it happens that the chap lains have such a good hold on the boys.” I have answered this question by stating that the reason lies in our Christian day schools. The purpose of these schools is chiefly, nay solely, to teach religion and inculcate Christ ian principles. The instructor in secu lar branches Is merely incidental and is assumed only for the sake of reli gious instruction. “We Lutherans," he said, “are some times accused of having German Pa rochial schools for the purpose of teaching or spreading German propa ganda. Our schools, when so referred to, are misnamed. They should not be called German Parochial schools, for they are in reality Christian day schools, established for the further ance of Christian education. After our children have received a thorough training in these schools, you can put your hand on them, and it will not slip.” In dedicating the beautiful service flag, donated by Fred G. Wiechmann of this city, he started out by explain ing the meaning of the different col ors—red, courage; white, purity; blue, loyalty. He also spoke of the sacri fices made by the splendid manhood of America, who have responded to their country’s call, and then said in part: “It is our duty as Christians towards our God, and as loyal citizens towards our country, to stand by our govern ment and assist in protecting our flag. All those who have come to this country and have enjoyed its liberty, freedom and prosperity, and who will not support their government by going to the front, buying Liberty Loan bonds, War Savings stamps, Thrift stamps and contributing toward the Red Cross, are not loyal to either the*r country or their God, and should be deported. This may hurt some of you, but I don’t care if it does. I say it as a minister of religion, as Christ said, “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, etc.’ ” The Concordia choir rendered a song, “The Heavens Are Telling.” The service was very largely attend ed, and will go down in the history of this church as a very impressive one. The list of members represented by stars on the service flag were recently published in our paper. Best Remedy for Whooping Cough "Last winter when my little boy had • the whooping cough I gave him Chamberlain's Congh Remedy," writes Mrs. J. B. Roberta Blast St. Louis, 111. I “It kept his cough loose and relieved • him of those dreadful coughing spells.

In order to insure justice to the woman worker herself and to insure the pro duct, the Commission requires a li cense for work done in this way and inspectors are sent out by the Commis sion to look into the home conditions, so that there may be no question that the product is made on strictly sani tary and proper basis. Miss Copp also stated that in many of the larger factories a woman worker is employed to do service work only. In this case a woman, who has had training in this work, is necessary. She has charge of a first aid room; examines the work ing conditions of the employees; goes into the homes of the employees and gives advice if necessary; for the new employee she has a list of good hoarding and rooming places, which they may go to, etc. Miss Copp went on saying that the war had made big changes in industry. The women of our country today are filling many po sitions made vacant by the necessity of our men going to war. Positions such as cab drivers, motormen, ele vator operators, etc;, are being taken by the women here now days. Judge Louis Marchetti spoke to the ladies interested in the Home Service course la'st Tuesday afternoon. His talk was along the state and municipal institutions that are related to the field of Home Service. He explained the state aid provided for dependent children, and told of his personal ex periences with the juvenile court in this city. Miss Agnes Wilson of Milwaukee, who has been in charge of the Homo Servce course here, will have finished her work by tomorrow with two execu tive workers of the Home Service de partment of the Red Cross in charge of the program for the last week. • SIOO Reward, SIOO The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there U at least one dreaded dis ease that science has been able to cure in all Is stages and that is catarrh.
