Miss Har ger sang “Old Folks at Home,” and an encore, “The Home Road.” Mr. Veh low’s numbers were: “Over There,” and his encore was “Keep tjie Home Fires Burning.” Both were presented with flowers. Cone’s orchestra played the “Poet and Peasant,” and other selections, which elicited applause. The “Star Spangled Banner” was sung by the audience. Judge Louis Mar chetti delivered an appropriate and very pleasing talk to the boys. On Thursday morning the selected men met at the court house and-were addressed by Dr. A. W. Trevitt and Frank P. Regner and were given smileage books, housewives, tobacco and reading matter.

Every fall, twist or strain is recorded in the backbone; the movable bones are forced out of normal position.

The result is disease of the organs these in ( ft J ure d nerves should feed. Since there is a mechan- Vf n I ical interference, it must be adjusted mechanically.

WAUSAU, WSSCONSIN THE TELEPHONE SYSTEMS The Government Took Over Control On July 31st, at Midnight Postmaster General Burleson short ly, after midnight, July 31st, sent out a letter stating that in pursuant to a proclamation made by the president of the United States, he had assumed possession of the telegraph and tele phone lines of the country; that un til further notice, companies will con tinue operations through regular chan nels under the same officials as before, and he requested the loyal co-opera tion of officers, operators and em ployees, so as to maintain the ser vice at a high standard; that no change will be made until after the most careful consideration of the facts. The letter of Postmaster General Burleson was sent out by what is known as the United States Independ ent Telephone association. Vice-pres ident McKinnon of the association, said: “The independent interests were discussed in a general way—Careful investigation of the problems and are being made and in due time instructions and announcement of plans will be made.” He gave instruc tions as to inventories, etc. | In reply to the proclamation re ceived by the Wausau Telephone com pany the following was transmitted by its president: Aug. 7, 1918. Postmaster General Burleson, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir: In response to the proclamation of the President of the United States on taking over the control of the tele phone and telegra.ph companies at midnight, July 31, 1918, I wish to state as follows: j The Wausau Telephone Company of Wausau, Wisconsin, has a list of sub scribers totaling 2600. Our company has been in successful operation for nearly a quarter of a century with the same set of directors, “xcepting one. Our plant is working under the automatic system, and is the only one of that type in Wisconsin. I wish to assure you of the hearty co-operation and loyal support of this company, who will only be too glad to assist you in every way possible in carrying out this war measure. Respectfully, N. HEINEMANN, Pres. Wausau Telephone Company. MINISTER ENLISTS Rev. Vernon Roy of the M. E. church at Tomahawk has enlisted and says that ministers of military age should no more expect to stay home than professional or other business men. He enlisted in the Milwaukee recruiting station and starts on the lowest rung' of the ladder, that of apprentice seaman. He says, “I felt it would do me more good to start at the beginning. Some of my friends thought I should stay back and help in getting support for charities for the Red Cross, the Y. M. C. A. and things of that sort. I feel that that work can be filled by retired pastors. We ought to get in this thing just as professional and business men are get ting into it. I believe I can make good.” BE ON THE SAFE SIDE At Madison, recently, nearly 400 young men were rounded up in the drag-net in an attempt to apprehend those who are evading the draft-law. In Milwaukee, several thousand were rounded up. Those who could not show registration credentials were put to considerable trouble. The*thing for every young man to do is to carry these credentials and if not in the draft age, carry his birth certificate. It may save some trouble. tonus ait US pilot LETTER FROM “REDD” HLAVA The following is a letter from Lad islaus G. Hlava, who is v .th Cos. D, 355th Inf., “somewhere in France.” He is better known to his Wausau friends as “Redd” and previous to entering the service was employed as clerk at the local post office: “Somewhere in France, July 7, 1918. Will try to write you a line to let you know how I’m getting along. Up to a short time ago, I was doing fine, I mean getting along. We don’t know what it means to get settled. Was in England a short time and saw quite a bit of that country, we were on hikes most every day there and always in different directions. The country is beautiful, it reminded me of those old English love stories I read back in the States, but did not have chance to react any, you know I’m so bashful. Now I’m in France, old, noble France. It’s a fine country but run down. The people, who are filling the places, where once young, bright faces, now are, old and very old. Most every able bodied man has nobly answered the call of his country. It was surprising to me the things the civilian popula tion are denying themselves for their soldiers. The people in the States don’t know what war is yet. As hard pressed as these people are there is not a sound of regret that escapes their lips. They look to their duty to the country first, last and all times, rich and poor alike, that’s why I say noble France. The people are very kind, polite and do almost anything to make the boys comfortable, tho’ it was a hard matter to make one another under stood, but we are getting along fine now, with the help of different books and the people themselves. We are commencing to talk the French lan guage. Just outside the door now one of the neighbor ladies is trying to teach one of our boys to count. It is comical to look upon but it shows their interest in us; their willingness to do all they can to make us fee. at home. The lady in whose house we are staying has had a son killed in this war. Now she is fighting hard to see the defeat of autocracy, which is bound to come and is going to come. The fourth of July celebration that was held here was good for the size of the town. Our Colonel was pre sented with a bouquet of red, white and blue flowers by the village people. Songs were sung and speeches were made and a regular outdoor sports contests were on making the day one to be remembered by the boys, who are far from home, but still think of home. You don’t know how good Old Glory looked among the many French flags that flew. Gee, there is a ball game here this afternoon, guess I’ll see some of that, so good-bye till I get back. Here again, say that’s some game, they had. I yelled like a loon. You know how I act when I get loose, ha! I guess I’ll finish this little episode, wishing you all health and happiness _as this leaves me in same condition. Give my regards to all I know. Give my regards to the post office bunch and good old Wausau.

WAliSAli, WIS. t TUESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1918. REGULAR MEETING OF THE CITY COUNCIL Tuesday was an important meeting of the city council, inasmuch, as that body voted to give the Wisconsin Val ley Electric company the right to cross the new concrete bridge with its car tracks and to thus connect up its line to the west side and continue its ser vice. The vote was over two-thirds in favor of allowing the company this privilege. The service to the west side was stopped last November owing to the work of the building of the new b.idge being commenced at that time, it has been a serious inconvenience to those living in that part of the city. M. C. Ewing, Sec’y of the Wisconsin Valley Electric company, offered the following for the consideration of the council by the counsel, Fred W. Gen rich: To the Honorable Mayor and Com mon Council, Wausau, Wisconsin. Gentlemen — With reference to the present inter ruption of street car service to the west side, v hich has now been as we believe unnecessaryily interrupted, since November 9, 1917. It has been the opinion of some of the city officials that a part of the cost of the new Falls bridge, be assessed against this company, before cars are premitted to cross said bridge. When this mat ter was first brought to our atten tion by the City, this company’s rep resentatives appeared, at a special council meeting, called for that pur pose, and gave fully to the members of the last council and administration, the reasons, why in our opinion, this company should not pay any of the costs of this bridge. In view of the fact that some of these reasons, may be unknown to the present aldermen and city officials, we take this op portunity of again presenting them to you. From our point of view, un der the facts as they exist, it seems to us absolutely contrary to the con tract and franchise agreement, en tered into between the city and the company, upon which contract the car line was built, and operated, to at this time demand that the company contribute towards the payment of this new bridge. Before a street car was operated in this city, and before the present line to the west side was built, this mat ter was considered and agreed upon, by franchise, betwen this company and the city. On April 25, 1907, the com mon council of the city of Wausau, duly considered and agreed to an amendment to the original franchise, which amendment eliminated from the original franchise, those provisions, which provided for partial payment of the cost of future new bridges across the Wisconsin river. This change in the franchise was properly made, be cause the company at that time, de clined to build and operate a car line to the west side of the river, upon the basis of paying for public bridges, either in part or in whole for the very good reason that it was then foreseen, that the returns from such invest ment, would not be sufficiently prom ising, to permit the company to make any such agreement. The city and the company, therefore, agreed, on April 25, 1907, that no such demands were in the future to be made upon the company by the city. This agree ment is evidenced by the franchise amendment, which was adopted upon the date given above. The company then proceeded to build and operate the west side line, and did so relying on this agreement so made. This agreement stands today as a city rec ord and the city is both legally and morally bound to recognize this agree ment, made in good faith, by both parties over eleven years ago, before a street car was operated in the city of Wausau. Another and more potent reason why the city should treat the traction company with fairness and justice, at this time, because, the traction de partment of this company is today op erating at a decided and substantial loss, which is daily becoming more burdensome. The most casual observ er, must on a moment’s consideration, recognize that street car service is still being furnished in Wausau, at pre-war rates, while the expenses of operation have very greatly increased and are still increasing. That the ex penses are now greater than the in come, and that under such conditions, we might at this time as well talk of “squeezing juice out of a turnip,” as to expect a heavily losing business, to cheerfully meet requests for contribu tions towards new bridges, when such business is not under the franchise agreements required to pay. If this company could afford to do so, we would cheerfully contribute at this time a reasonable amount towards paying for the best single civic im provement made by the city in recent years, but the company absolutely cannot, under the present conditions afford to do so. Our street car busi ness under present conditions is a financial failure, it is rapidly getting worse. It must have assistance and consideration from the cty govern ment rather than added burdens. Up to the present time we have made no application for an increase in rates. We have hoped that present conditions might change, that this war might be brought to an end, but as there seems to be no immediate relief, we now respectfully advise and give due notice, that our increased cost of operation, due to the war, makes it necessary for this company to apply for increased rates for our transportation department and that within the next six weeks we will file with the railroad commission of Wis consin for an application for such in crase as the commission may deem necessary. A copy of such application will be duly filed with the city, which j applicatoin will set forth in detail the financial conditions making such ap plication necessary. Any additional burdens imposed up on the traction company must in the last analysis be paid for by the car j riders rather than by tue stockholders |of i his company. Seeking to pay for bridges, by assessing the traction company, at this time is like trying to lift ourselves by our boot straps. What good reason can be given for assessing directly or indirectly, street car riders, to build bridges which are made necessary, largely by reason of the wondeiful development of auto mobiles and trucks? Such a policy is unsound. It should be abandoned The company and its car riders have already paid their just portion of the cost of this bridge, in .general taxes paid by this company to the state, and which will be paid in the future, 85% of whichi s returned to the city. The company is therefore paying its just proportion of this bridge just as are all other tax payers. In view of the fact that the street car line across the river is today a losing proposition. ac£ in view of the fact that the line is only used by a limited few, and in view of the fact that it has already been out of service entirely too long, we would respect fully submit the following proposition : We are in receipt of an urgent re j luest from the federal government, OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO. ITEMS OF NEWS BOILED DOWN FROM THE WAUSAU PILOT THIRTY-THREE YEARS AGO Tuesday, January 6, 1885 John Werner movea to his farm near Marathon City yesterday. Last Tuesday evening the annual election of officers of the Wausau Light Guards took place, resulting in re-election of J. D. Womer, as captain. O. Holway was chosen first lieutenant, and Louis Sandry, second lieutenant, secretary, G. D. Jones; treasurer, “Dick” Clark. Chris. Heinrichs, carrier of the Maine and Naugart mails, had bad luck last Saturday. While carrying the mail out into the country, and was passing a team about one and a half miles west of the city, his horse be came frightened and ran away. The contents of the cutter were thrown out and the horse, when caught after running a couple of miles, had noth ing attached to him but the thills. The cutter was smashed into kindling wood. John Stewart of Blackberry, 111., was in the city the past week. Paul A. Wernicli, who, for quite a number of years, has been proprietor of the drug store, corner of Maine and Washington streets, has sold the same to W. W. Albers. Mr. Wernicli intends to fit himself for a physician, and for that purpose will attend Rush Medical college for a number of years. The body of David L. Quaw was to furnish for war purposes, and for the transportation of the Nation’s troops, tracks and cars, which are not now urgently needed here in war work. In view of the fact that this line has been out of use for nine months and apparently not greatly needed we are therefore, willing, subject to the ap proval of the council, tb at once turn over to the National War Department this material together with several cars and additional material, and we will with the consent of your hon orable body immediately tear up such tracks and restore the paving in the streets to first class condition, thus obviating the necessity of the council longer considering upon what terms the company ought to be permitted to cross the Falls bridge, and at the same time assist in furnishing our soldiers and our government with equipment urgently needed for the nation’s de fense. Upon receipt of your favor able consideration to this proposition we will immediately carry it into ef fect. This proposition has been care fully considered and meets with the unanimous approval of the full board of directors of this company. Respectfully yours, Wisconsin Valley Electric Company, By M. C. EWING, Sec’y. After a thorough discussion of the question following a statement made by F. W. Genrich, Alderman Morisette offered a motion to allow the Wiscon sin Valley Electric company the right to lay a single track for its street car line across the bridge, at any time, with the consent of the contractors, which carried by a vote of 13 to 4, one member of the council being ab sent. The paving of Forest street and Grand avenue with vitrified brick, to Stroller’s Lane, on the avenue, was let to Carney & Frey and the completion of the work was guaranteed by the Chicago Bonding and Security com pany. The contractors abondoned the work in the fall of 1916 and it was finally finished by the city. The bond ing company allowed the city’s and other claims and the city waived any claims for damages. The council ap proved of the settlement made with the bonding company. The flag recently purchased by the city for Company C, 10th Inf., on mo tion, was voted to be presented to the Company at the Y. M. C. A., on Mon day evening, at which time it was re quested that the members of the city council and the city officials meet at the city hall at 7:30 o’clock and march to the Y. M. C. A. building to par ticipate in the event. It was voted that the city execute deeds to the Lake Wausau Granite Works and the Marathon Shoe com pany for the real estate occupied by each, as they had carried out in full the terms of the contracts entered in to with the city. Mrs. Agnes B. Murray presented her resignation as a member of the library board, which was adopted and placed on file. The council extended the Fraternal Order of Eagles the privilege of hold ing its annual picnic on Oak Island. Frank E. Schneider, city poor com missioner, who had attended the con vention of City Poor Commissioners, held in Milwaukee, submitted a report of its doings, and the same was placed on file. The plat of A. F. Marquardt’s addi tion to the city of Wausau, “Liberty Heights,” was accepted, It was authorized to pay the city health officers expenses to a meeting of health officers held in Madison. It was voted to pay the expenses of the Board of Public Works and as many of the members of the city coun cil as care to go, to a meeting of the League of Municipalities, which is to be held in Rhinelander from the 13th to the loth of August. Adolph Holub was elected a mem ber of the School Board, for the Ninth ward in place of W. R. Johnson, re signed. The application of P. F. Gaetzman, for a saloon license, to conduct a place at 1040 S. Third Ave., was denied. A resolution giving policemen one day off each week, at the end of the present vacation period, was adopted. A resolution was adopted allowing $45.00 per month for rent of rooms of the federal employment bureau of fice Equipment not to exceed S3OO. Messrs. Cotey and Alexander Jacob son of the Federal bureau were pres ent and explained the situation and after a general discussion the reso lution was passed. DRENCHING RAIN Wednesday throughout the day there vrere drenching rains and dark, heavy clouds covered the sky. At night, it commenced to rain heavily and this kept up all night, over an inch falling during the time. Cloudy with occa sional rains kept up during the day and night. Conditions kept up pretty much the same during Friday. At Rhinelander, Tomahawk, and Merrill, about two inches fell during the progress of the storm and at Grand Rapids neai.y four inches fell. The rains have raised the river some, which is still rising. Certain crops have been benefited by the wet weather. It asures a good crop of late potatoes, cucumbers, beets, and rutabagas. Rye, barley, oats, brought to this city yesterday from Nashville, Tenn., and buried by the Masons. The family of deceased ac companied the remains. On the very last day of the year that has so lately passed. A. V. Gearhart and Ada S. Barnunm joined hands and made ready to begin the New Year together. 'They were married at the house of her father, M. H. Barnum, at half past seven in the evening. Rev. F. L. Wharton was, for the time being, presiding elder, in a very pleas ing, impressive ceremony. The Winkley House was furnished with a grand square piano on New Year’s day and on that day just before the dinner hour, Chas. Frohman on the piano, and Dr. E. M. Kanouse, soloist, gave a brief concert to the great delight of all. A literary event by the ladies was given at the home of Mrs. Chas. Cros by on the last day of the year 1884. | There were 25 ladies present, who were subsequently joined by their husbands. As they gathered, the air began to grow rich and dim with the incense, the breath as It were, of science and poetry and art, and little Bertie Crosby, gazing with the face’of an angel out of her wandering eyes, marveled to herself what it might be that made her think so much, all at once, at those “drefle” big books in papa Charle’s library. and spring and winter wheat harvests are in progress. Corn conditions are not as good as might be. FROM A SOLDIER IN FRANCE Frank Synnott lias received a letter from one of liis nephews in France, which he gives the Pilot the privilege of publishing. Frank has two nephews over there. One of them is Matt Synnott’s son of the town of Texas, who is in France; and the other, William Synnott’s son of this city, who is in England: and both, as Frank puts it, “are after the kaiser’s scalp.’’ The one in France is a cruis er, having learmd the work from his uncle and also the secrets of tell ing how much timber there is on land and price to pay for such timber. His letter is as follows: July 15th, 1918, In France Somew here. F. F. Synnott, Wausau, Wis. Dear Uncle— Well, how is everything going with you? The last letter I got from Willie, he said you were out cruising timber near Merrill. How were the mosquitoes this spring? I only saw one since I have been in France. The horse-flies though are something tierce. They are about the size of a bumble-bee and accumulate in clouds about the horses and set them crazy. During clear, warm weather we work early in the morning and late in the evening and avoid the heat of the day, when the flies are the worst. We are handling round stuff on wagons. ’♦Loading with single line. We have no chain so we use cable. It is pretty hard seeking when it rains much as the ground softens up quick. I have had as many as eight horses on a wagon trying to plough through the mud with a load, and the rain just pouring down. We are not quite equipped here. We are a long way from U. S., so we just have to get along with what we got. We have plenty of hay wire so guess everything will be all right. We have a tractor now to haul with. It hauls two loads at once. This makes it very much easier for me to keep the mill stocked. We have plenty of good horses and tine harness. All things considered there isn’t much we can complain about. The fourth of July we had a little celebra tion. French and Americans joined in celebrating. The 14th is France’s day and the Americans joined them in celebrating. It is hard to be among people you can’t converse with. I have several French books, but I haven’t time to study them. Their crops are just as far advanced as ours are. Haying is on full blast. I have done a little haying myself here evenings and Sundays to help them out. The women and old :nen have to do the work. Over here, everyone that is at all fit, is in uniform, old and young. But they are not all fighting at one time. They get home quite frequent ly. All the way across France, we saw soldiers home on leave. Up on our front here they don’t do much fighting. They bombard each other occasionally to relieve tiie monotony of trench life and have a few night raids on each other for the fun of it. Occasionally the Germans come over in aeroplanes but the anti-air craft guns make them keep pretty high. A Frenchman brought down a German plane not far from here: we could see the tight plainly. The Frenchman got above Fritz and dived straight down at him riddling him with a machine gun. The German landed all right; one was killed, the other was not hurt. The guns have been silent for quite a while now. Both sides are taking a rest. The people have become so accustomed to the war that they don’t seem to mind it. They have enough to eat and everyone is dressed well. Everyone gets bread tickets: each family gets so many tickets so everyone has the same amount of bread. It is a dark, thick-crusted bread, but it tastes good. I would like to eat it all the time. Everyone drinks a lot of wine. “Yin Rouge” is the popular drink. They soak their bread in it and then eat it. They have a kind of thin, weak beer also, and for hard stuff rum brandy, and sometimes Scotch whiskey. This hard stuff is Very ex pensive. Well, that is about all for this time. I suppose you will get this about the middle of August. Regards to everyone. I hope Aunt Molly is feeling good. Your nephew, Sergt. Edward J. Synnott, Cos.
