SET FOR AUGUST 24TH Draft Registry for Youth's, Who HaTe Reached the Age of 21, Since June sth Last August 24 th will be the next regis tration day for American boys, who have reached the age of 21 since Juii“ sth last. State headquarters have received word from Provost Marshal Gen. Crowder, calling for such registra tion on that date, and orders for con ducting the registration was sent out from the state on Thursday, to the various draft boards. The date or iginally set for this was on the sth day of September, but because of primary elections being held in many of the states, the change was made to August 24th. The August registra tion will prevent any draft upon de ferred classes and is expected to fur nish 150,000 men for Class 1. The object of the new registration is to keep Class 1 full during the fall months, pending registration. Classification of the millions to be added under the man power bill. Undfer a presidential proclamation issued last Wednesday, the same rules will govern the registration as these governing previous registrations. Any person, who on account of sickness will be unable to be present himself for registration on the day set, may apply before the day of registration at the office of any local board for in struction as to how he may register by agent. The time of registration will be between 7 a. m. and 9 p. m. It is planned to hold the first regis tration of men between 18 and 21 and between 35 and 45 early in Septem ber, if the man power bill passes be fore that time, as expected. ASK DRAFT LAW FOR 18 TO 45 All men in the United States be tween the ages of 18 and 45 inclusive will be subject to compulsory mili tary service as soon as congress en acts into law recommendations of the war department. Following a conference with Sec retary of War Baker Senator Cham berlain of Oregon, chairman of the senate military affairs committee, made public the information that the war department had prepared a bill, with President Wilson’s approval, lowering the minimum draft age limit to 18 years and raising the max imum limi’ to 45 years. The announcement was received with the greatest exultation by the advocates of universal military train ing and a big army program. They regarded it as a complete victory for their contentions ever since the necessity for more adequate prepar edness became apparent. While additional legislation would be necessary to make universal mili tary training the permanent policy of the nation, the bill recognizes the principle of universal training and would put it into effect for the period of the war. It makes good predic tions of more than a month ago that the administration would put some such plan into effect in connection with the new man power legislation. Tiie bill will enable the president to call young men into the service by classes arranged according to their ages. It is understood that the war department will take advantage of this authority to begin the training of young men as soon as they reach their eighteenth year and have them fitted for immediate service on the firing line as soon as they reach the age deemed best for such duty. It is the belief of the universal training advocates that this system will prove so satisfactory during the period of the war that no difficulty will be en countered in enacting legislation put ting it into permanent operation. CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH AND HAPPINESS ARE YOU HAPPY IN YOUR HOME LIFE? The first essential of a Happy Home is Health. You may be rich in dollars, but if you are not blessed with 1 lealth, you are really in a state of poverty. Every man, woman and child in this a country can enjoy this privilege of Health if they will only ‘ break away” from the obsolete and useless sys tem of Drugs. This is not only a “Wireless” age, it is also a “Drugless” age. A drowning man will jump at a straw if there is nothing else in sight, but if a life belt is at hand he will grasp the latter. Thousands of suffering humanity have jumped at the straw in the shape of Drugs only to find that it was a very weak support and in the majority of cases no support at all. On the other hand thousands of sick people have grasped the “Life Belt,” CHIROPRACTIC and have found in it not only support, but ultimately a restcr- 'Y') ation to Health.

WAUSAU, WISCONSIN KILLED IN FRANCE Edward 11. Kregel of Wausau, Meets Death, While In Action On July 18th Notice reached the city last Wednes day, of the death of Edward H. Kregel, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Kregel of this city. The dispatch re ceived was as follows: “Deeply regret to Inform you that Private’ Edward H. Kregel/ Infantry, is officially reported as killed in ac tion, July 18, (Signed) McCain, the Adjutant General.” Edward was in Comany F, 28th Inf., Am. Exped. Forces. This company was at the front in the great offensive, commenced July 18, by the Allies. It was on that day that Lieut. Newman Beilis was wounded and Wisconsin men were in that great battle and many killed and wounded. When the dispatch came, on Wed nesday, the young man’s father was away from home, up near the Mano towish waters, where he had been at work for the past four months. He Vas wired that his sen was ill and to come home. He came to the city as soon as he could, reaching here on Thursday evening, when the truth was told him. The family are bear ing up under their very deep affliction, as well as can be expected, and in their great loss they have the sincere sympathy of the entire community. Private Edward Kregel was born in Wausau, on the 3rd day of Febru ary 1893, and he was therefore 25 years of age. He had resided In ,Wausau all his life and had a wide acquaintance and hosts of very warm friends, who highly honored him. He attended our city schools; was a pupil of the Marathon County Training School for Teachers, and attended the Oshkosh normal, and the Wausau Bus iness college, preparing himself fully fo r life’s duties in an educational and business way. He was a teacher in our county schools for several years, acquitting himself with honor in every instance. He was a member of Company G, W. N. G., having joined in 1916. He went with the Company to Texa on the Mexican border that year and with him also went his twin brother, w*>o is now in the service in France. He returned to Wausau, with his com pany in the winter the same year and when war was declared against Ger many he went with his company in March, 1917, to guard the docks at Ashland. Later he went to France, in Ashland. Later he went to Waco, Texas, aniF from there to France, in He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Kregel, two brothers, a twin, Benjamin, and Harvey and four sisters, Luvella, Josephine, Flor ence and Regina, all of whom reside at home. On Sunday at St. Stephen’s church, services of commemoration were held in connection with the regular morn ing worship, which consisted of a hymn by the congregation and an address by the pastor, Rev. Win. F. Spiegel and a prayw. MIST OBSERYE THEIR RIGHTS Many automobile drivers have an idea that pedestrians have no rights on crossings. They feel that if they blow their horns the pedestrians must run for safety. The fact is the pedes trian has the right of way, and the driver must not only blow his horn but must also slow down and stop if necessary. It is appalling how many drivers utterly neglect. Sour stomach, clogged up bowels, headaches, foul breath, are evils of constipation. Hollister’s Rocky Moun tain Tea purifies the stomach and re lieves constipation—a medicine the whole family should take. 35c. W. W.

The newspapers of the county have consented to run a “Question Box,” column for that purpose. Any ques tion in writing coming to the Marathon War Fund will be answered through the newsapers in the order In which they are received. Reference was made to this feature lately, and an employe of one of the mills stopped a director of the Marathon War Fund on the street and said, “I note your reference to a “Question Box” on the Marathon War Fund. That’s a splendid idea as it will give anyone who desires an opportun ity to become thoroughly familiar with the workings of the fund. I have followed with considerable interest the entire plan. I was a delegate to the convention and the only ques tion which came to my mind is ‘What excuse can anyone have for NOT be coming a member?”’ There was a poser for the Marathon War Fund to answer. vVhat excuse CAN anyone have for rot becoming a member? The answer is none as there is none. Membership in the fund is a badge of honor and a fulfillment of the pledge of every citizen in the county to “Back the Boys.” A sum of money made up from small sums paid at stated intervals in a systematic regular manner results in a union productive of the greatest good. It’s an effective way in which everyone in Marathon county can do the most good with his war donations, as the money goes into one fund for all war needs and is handled in an effective manner by the directors of the fund assisted by an Advisory committee of thirty members repre senting all the people in Marathon county. The directors and advisory com mittee have a better opportunity of analyzing any request for funds than the individual, and no part of the fund will be distributed unless after a very careful investigation it is found the request stands the test laid down as follows: Is it authorized by direct or dele gated government authority? Does it he'p our Country win the war? Does it help our Soldiers and Sail ors? Is the object worthy and properly handled? Is our share fair and just? One of the objects of the fund is to prevent unauthorized solicitation. This makes all donations handled ir the above manner more effective for the winning of the war. 21 to 31 “BACK THE BOYS” SPECIAL LAND CLEARING TRAIN The fourth “land clearing special” sent out by the state within the past three years up into northern Wis consin, started out yesterday. J. Swenehart, Jr., county agent of Forest county and an experienced land clearer, lias charge o! the demonstra tions.

Last Wednesday morning was one of the finest days of summer, not-too hot, but clear and moderate. It was on this morning that over 100 young men left for various schools, to take special training to fit them for the U. S. army service. The young men met at the court house as usual, to report to the exemption boards. They were addressed by Dr. A. W. Trevitt on insurance and given general good advice. Judge A. H. Reid also addressed the boys, telling of the ap preciation of their sacrifices by the people, who are left behind, who would be back of them during this great war. “Housewives,” “Smileage Books,” and tobacco were given the selects. The 10th Inf. Band marched to the county square and discoursed music for a time, and then went after Cos.

SAFE BLOWN OPEN BY BURGLARS Early last Wednesday morning burglars entered the office of the Wad ham’s Oil company on Mclntosh street, gaining entrance at the rear door. They poured nitro-glycerine in the cracks of the door and blew it open. They secured nothing for their trouble as the safe is used only for books and papers and not for the deposit of moneys. However, they caused con siderable damage to the company. The explosion was heard by Wm. Zielsdorf, who at once telephoned the police department, but before ' the police could get to the office the burg lars had escaped. As an automobile contained several parties was seen by parties on the street, it is supposed the safe-crackers were able to make a quick escape. There have been several safes opened in this way in cities near Wausau lately and it is supposed the work has all been done by the same men. The police have been diligently searching for a clue but up to date no arrests have been made. In many of the cities in the lower part of the state, similar robberies are being committed, but in nearly every case money is found in small amounts. It would be well for busi ness houses, not to use their safes for the deposit of monies, inasmuch, as the burglar is abroad with his explosives. VOTING BY MAIL It has been ordered that soldier voters in cantonments can cast their votes for candidates at the primary election to be held on the 3d day of September. County Clerk L. H. Cook has been very busy sending out blanks to the various Marathon county voters now in these cantonments. If the vot er desires to cast his vote, he fills out the blank asking for ticket, which will be sent and the same is to be filled out and sent the County Clerk to be counted in the returns. The applicant must swear that he has been a resident of Wisconsin for one year, and a resident of city, town or village ten days preceding this election; that he is duly qualified elector and is entitled to vote at said election. Also to state his business and that he will be absent from the voting precinct on Sept. 3d, 1918, He also makes application for official bal lot or ballots, and pledges himself to return ballots to the officer issuing same, on or before the day of said election. This will swell the vote of the primary election throughout the state to a very large degree. There is ample time between now and elec tion to have the blanks returned and tickets sent out and returned, if the voters work quickly. WISCONSIN WAR HISTORY The War History Commission of Wisconsin is collecting a vast amount of material from each county in the state, with which to make up the War History of the State. This is a vast undertaking and will necessitate that those engaged in the work of com piling the records of the various ac tivities. A monumental roster is be ing compiled in each county of all the men that ente- the fighting forces of our country; photographs and pic tures of soldiers, parades, and other war activities are being collected; a report on what each county does in the liberty loan drives, the Red Cross cam paigns, the Y. M. C. A. and K. of C. drives, and all other war activities is to be included in making up Wiscon sin’s memorable war collection. It is expected that when the day of peace comes, every county in the state will have on file a complete record of all the war activities in which it en gaged during this epoch-making period. SHOULD BE IDENTIFIED During these days when positions are being changed so often in various concerns, it is necessary to have strange men enter homes for various things to examine meters, —sewer, gas, water, electric, and to inspect plumb ing. sewers, etc. Many are strangers to the occupants and it seems that it ‘ would be well to have something with which to identfy such a person. TEACHERS’ EXAMINATIONS The past week the final teachers’ examinations in the county were held, the early part of the examinations being held in the Training school building for first and second grade certificates, conducted by the County Supt. J. E. Giessel. On Friday and Saturday for lower grades at the Training school conducted by Miss Eva Bernier and at Unity under the supervision of J. E. Giessel. Dana’s Silver Cornet Band. The Ger mania Guards were mustered in in 1875. Only three at this time, mus tered in are with the company—Wm. Kickbusch, Capt. Chas. Krueger, Ist Lieut, and Conrad Sipe. It owns its armory building and has property valued at $3,000. A fire Thursday destroyed Scott’s planing mill and lumber yard at Mer rill. The loss was $15,000. Nearly 1,000,000 feet of lumber was burned. A. B. Millard, County Clerk of Lang lade county, was In the city last even ing. S. Kronen wetter departed yesterday for Madison to take his seat in the State Senate. Henry McCrossen, Chas. Manson and John Alexander returned to their school yesterday at Mt. Vernon. John Ringle, who has been at New Orleans, has returned to the city. Dav. Kirkwood who is on a trip in the East, writes: “Let me know if there are any houses to rent in Wau sau?” This looks serious. The new suits of the Wausau Light Guards look very neat and nobby. The city council meets on the 20th to open bids for the erection of water works The work will be let on the 22d. ALLIED WAR EXPOSITION Under the auspices of the U. S. government, the Allied War Exposition has been in progress in Los Angeles from Aug. Ist to Aug. 11th. Reid Goodrich, formerly of Wausau, now of Los Angeles sends the Pilot a pro gram of the exposition, with the fol lowing letter: Los Angeles, Aug. 11, 1918. My Dear Thayer: War, war, everywhere. With this I send you today’s program and a cata log of exhibit of the “Allied War Ex position,” which has been running here for eleven days and closes tonight. To you and all the good people of Wausau, I want to say that this is undoubtedly the greatest opportunity they will have to see the war trophies and at the same time realize what our boys are up against, as it will open up in Chicago about Sept. Ist and consists of a train of about 20 cars to move it. The Tank Brittania is well worth the price of admission alone and to give you an idea of its magnitude. It weighs thirty-four tons and can crawl -'ll over Rib mountain and make its owj road; cost $125,000. Everybody should see it if they have to draw on Brßos. Grout and Harger for the wherewitti, R. GOODRICH. ANNUAL TEACHERS’ INSTITUTE The annual Teachers’ Institute of Marathon county was held in Wausau, at the rooms of the Marathon County Training school on Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday of the past week. It was a very successful institute, there being 115 teachers from various parts of the county present. The as sistants were Randall Johnson, of the Marathon Training school; S. S. Hyer of the Stevens Point normal; S. B. Coon of the Agricultural department of the Wausau High school and Train ing school; M. M. Mortenson of the Stratford High school. Besides the regular activities, there were addres ses made during the session by H. C. Berger, on War Saving societies and the Marathon War Fund; by S. B. Tobey on “The Origin of the Red Cross in Schools,” and Miss Susan Underwood, “The Kind of Work Being Done by the Junior Red Cross.” The institute closed on Thursday afternoon, and those who attended were highly pleased with the success of the session and excellent work ac complished. HATS OFF An incident happened last Wednes day morning, which impressed upon those who witnessed it, the import ance of cultivating the habit of salut ing the flag when passing by. It was when the selected boys were march ing to the train, as So. C assed along, one of the members noticed that a man watching the parade, did not pay proper respect to the flag, when it was carried by, and immediately knocked the man’s hat off. The man protested that he had saluted and was very much worked up over the affair. All must remember: “Hats off when the flag is passing by.” This story is told: “Yesterday I saw the flag borne along the street by a venerable soldier of the Civil War. As he passed a group of young men, one of them assumed an erect attitude, removed his hat, raised his hand to his forehead, palm downward, and there stood like - soldier _t at tention until the flag-bearer had passed him. He alone of the group of young men gave the emblem of his country’s freedom, that silent, loy al, courteous tribute of respect. It was a token of culture in him that his companions did not possess." So remember: Hats off when the flag is passing by. APPOINTED SECRETARY M. P. McCullough, of Wausau, chair man of District No: 2, of the Wis consin War Industries board, which comprises Lincoln, Marathon, Lang lade and Shawano counties, has ap pointed George Gilkey, of this city, secretary for Lincoln county.

Damon, to whom the letter is written: Somewhere in France, July 14, 1918. Dear Brother and Family: I landed over here safely sometime ago and am feeling fine, as I hope this letter will find you all. Have seen quite a number of interesting things, since landing; have witnessed a few good air fights and was more than pleased to see them bring down Ger man planes. We are located in a small French town, about ten miles from the front and which, at one time was controlled by the Germans, but who were subse quently driven out. We can hear the roar of the canons, but of late, things have been prettly quiet. I think they are preparing for their much talked of August drive. The Germans say that the Americans have too much “pep.” Did not take them long to find it out, eh? I was transferred to headqarters, 7th Inf. Brigade as chauffeur for Brigadier General Poore and am driv ing a hlg six Winton, and like it. They have a fine bunch of officers in the detachment. By-the-way, how is the Buick. Sup pose things are pretty dead in that line these days. * * * I am still in the same division, * * * Regards to all, “JESSE.” SERVICE FLAG DEDICATED St. Paul’s Catholic church of Mosi nee, dedicated its service flag last Sunday evening. It is said to be one of the largest flags of the county, having more than 60 stars. A num ber of priests took part in the services. X W U u.S.
