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.

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. Resolve that Health and llappi- n/y'w
ness shall reign supreme in your home. Learn the
principles of the wonderful Science of Chiropractic. ( \\S
Ask your Chiropractor to explain them to you; get sZf WTfypJ \WY fj

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.

MARATHON WAR FUND
It is the desire of the Maratbon War
Fund to have every citizen of Mara
thon county fully understand the aims
and purposes of the fund.
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.

BOYS GOING FAST
A Large Contingent Departed On
Wednesday Morning and Evening,
Going Over the St. Panl R. R.
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. C,
10th Inf., at the Y, and marched to the
square, where the selected men fell in
line, together with men, women and
children from the city and county, and
the march at 11 o’clock was taken

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

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.

fixed the price of the following for
Marathon and Lincoln counties:
Wheat, per bushel $ 2.21%
Flour, per barrel 10.01
Bran, per ton 23.36
Mixed Feed, per ton 24.61
Middling shorts of red dog 25.36
A deviation from these prices will
mean not only a punishment, but a
rebate paid to the customer.
The Best Plaster
A piece of flannel dampened with
Chamberlain’s Liniment and bound on
over the seat of pain is often more
effectual for a lame back than a plas
ter and does not cost anything like
as much.

FROM JESSE DAMON
The following letter is from Private
J. S. Damon, who is somewhere in
F’rance. He ia a brother of H. E.
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.”

THE Y DOING GREAT WORK
The Red Cross Chapter; the Wo
man’s Motor Corps and the Junior
Red Cross, now occupy the entire
second floor of the Y. M. C. A., the
same having been turned over to them
by the Y. This will give ample room
for all this work. The Y Is also being
used by Company C, 10th Inf. That
institution is certainly doing great
work for the war. Without suitable
quarters for these activities, they
would be seriously handicapped.
