DEATH OF MISS OPDAHL
At 7:30 o’clock this morning Miss
Karen Marie Opdahl, who had been*
dangerously ill for some time, passed
away at her home, 316 Fifth street.
Miss Opdahl had been ill for a long
period during which time she had fre
quent strong rallies when it was hoped
that she might again be restored to
health. Her strength gradually de
clined the past months, and of late
sue suffered greatly, but her suffer
ings were borne with heroic courage
and the true Christian spirit. About
two years ago she underwent an op
eration, and since that time had not
been in perfect health.
The deceased was born in Wausau,
May 24, 1870, and was forty-eight
years, three months and three days
of age. She was very well known in
this city, and a real factor in Wausau’s
public schoolsr having been an in
structor for many years in the Hum
boldt and Washington schools. The
things that stood out strongly in her
character were her unselfish and gen
tle disposition and her willingness to
do her part cheerfully and smilingly.
She was beloved by every one with
whom she associated, and especially
by the children of Wausau, who went
to school to her. Besides her relatives
and many friends, the Board of Ed
ucation, the teachers and school chil
dren will feel the loss of a true and
ideal friend and wonderful teacher.
Her death is mourned by her
mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Opdahl, one
brother, Sergeant Einer Opdahl, who
is with Troop D, 15 Cavalry, “some
where in France,” two sisters, Misses
Leonarda and Anna Opdahl.
The date of the funeral had not been
decided upon early this afternoon, al- i
though it will be held at the family l
residence, and Dr. D. J. Williams of
the First Presbyterian church will
officiate. Burial will be in Pine Grove
cemetery.
Friends are kindly asked to send no

ON HIS WAY
A. H. Grout received a postal card
yesterday from Frank Loeffler, a form
er employee of the First National
bank, stating as follows:
“Enroute?
Dear Mr. Grout:
Received your most welcome letter
a few days ago, also received a let
ter from Norbert (Trauba), but could
not find time to answer either one.
Left Camp Grant Thursday p. m., go
ing directly east, instead of the usual
western and southern route. Expect
to be in Hoboken, N. J., Sunday morn
ing. Health is O. K., and all men in
both companies (I & K) 500 men, are
in good spirits. Seems good to be able
to loaf for a few days, but after the
sea trip it will probably be a stiff
grind. I visited John and Torgy be
fore they left for Virginia. My best
regards to yourself and my bank
friends. FRANK.”

/I Fountain Pen is a Faithful
Servant
There’s a satisfaction in using a good fountain pen, one that
holds ink, never smears, or smudges—always ready for use when
you want it.
PARKER FOUNTAIN PENS
are accurately constructed —don’t leak—always write well—and
are always ready to serve you. The handy, useful and convenient
pen for the business man or woman, and the ideal gift for the
soldier boy.

There were fifty in the First district

them to get here Saturday and they
are coming in for this purpose. Up to
this forenoon, the total number of
registrants had reached 102, and
more are looked for.

“BACK THE BOYS” MEETINGS
On Sunday the Marathon War Fund
workers did a big stroke of business
in Marathon county. There were
twenty-five enthusiastic meetings held
during the day. Many of the people
of this countv did not fully under
stand the purpose of this fund, and
since the meetings on Sunday, when
everything was fully explained and
thoroughly understood, the towns are
coming in fast 100%. The meetings
were largely attended in most cases,
which showed that the people were
eager to know what the drive was all
about, and all are anxious to do their
bit. Good speakers had been engaged
for the day, and taking it all in all,
the day was a very successful one for
the big drive.
KNIT BY MRS. E. J. GOOD KICK
Last winter Mrs. E. J. Goodrick,
while doing Red Cross work, among
other things knit a sweater in which
she pinned a short note after the
sweater was completed. The incident
had been forgotten by her until yes
terday when Frank Turney called her
up and said that his son, Hiram, who
is in France with the rank of sergeant,
had written him stating that he had
received a sweater 2n which he had
found a ncte from Mrs. Goodrick, and
asked him to inform her of the fact.
With a million and more sweaters
having gone from this country it is
interesting to note that this particular
sweater should have come into the
hands of an Antigo boy.—Antigo
Journal.
