Unless they are in the military se vice of the U. S., or now registered under the Selective Service Law. On that day it is supposed there will he 13,000,000 additional registrants. The obligation to register is placed on all male persons in the U. S., whether citizens of the U. S., persons who have taken out their lirst papers only, or aliens. The registration places will be open at 7 a. m. and close in the evening, when it is hoped all will register. Persons absent from home should make provisions to be registered by conferring with the proper authorities by registered mail. Special provision has been made to register the sick. The governor calls upon all public officials to perform all duties called upon by the laws. He also calls upon all away from home and all required to register to enroll themselves in their country’s service. He calls upon the newspapers to give publicity to the day, and on all citizens to offer their services to assist the local boards of the state in the registration. He urges that on the 12th of Sept., that Hags be displayed on public and private buildings and at private homes and that the day on which 13,000,000 of our people will formerly dedicate themselves to the great cause of the country of humanity, of civilization, shall be fittingly and solemnly cele brated. It is expected that 320,000 will be registered in Wisconsin. The election of the state will be used, the regular election board officials working with out pay. The registration in June, 1917, listed 210,000 in the state; in June, 1918, 21,- 090 and in August, 191$, 4,500. FORMER WAUSAU GIRL IN U. S. NAVY In the Portland, Oregon, Sunday Journal of August 25th, is an article about a young woman getting a uni form because of being a member of the U. S. navy. This woman happens to be Miss Clara C. Thomas. She was formerly a resident of this city, and graduated from the Wausau High school in 1901. The article says in part: “First of the guard of the port of her sex. Miss Clara C. Thomas, ycowoman, has received her uniform and is now a lull Hedged member of tiie United States navy. She is in the office of En sign C. Spalding, commander of the port guard, in the custom house. Miss Thomas enlisted in Spokane, and was mustered into the 'navy July 2fi. the happiest girl, she says, in all the country. She had been employed for several years by the American Woodwork & Machinery company of Spokane, leaving the employ there to join the navy. “t wanted to do what I could to help win the war.” she says. “I have a brother, Harrison, in the army in France, and it seemed to me I ought to ho able to do something. They would n’t let me fight, but I did get into the navy and perhaps before the war is over I can make my work count.” Miss Thomas comes of a long line of fighting ancestors, among whom may be mentioned General Thomas, of Civil war fame, a cousin of her paternal grandfather. On her maternal grand mother’s side she is related to General Grant, her grandmother being a cousin of the famous Civil war commander. KILLED BY LIGHTNING Near Boulder Junction on Sunday, Sept. Ist, Leo Sells was instantly killed by a bolt of lightning and two men rendered unconscious, one horse killed and another partially paralyzed. —The men wore riding in a wagon and were searching for cans. When the crash o: me, they were crossing the railroad track. An examination showed that the lightning entered the left upper portion of Sell's head and tore a hole through his skull. As the lines with which he was driving were wet, they acted as a conductor of elec tricity as the same bolt tore the ani mal’s mouth, which was killed. CENTRAL WISCONSIN FAIR The Central Wisconsin State fair held at Marshfield opened up on Wed nesday and during the three days of the .fair—Wednesday, Thursday and Friday had very favorable weather which drew out large crowds. Many went over from Wausau, by train and by automobiles, to be present, and they report an excellent fair. It was noticeably strong in its produce and stock exhibits; in displays by the merchants and its fruit and dairy ex hibits. Y. M. C. A.

Burns Has Made the Supreme Sacrifice A message, was received from the war department last Wednesday afternoon, by Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Burns, bringing to them the sad news of the death of their second son, Pri vate John E. Burns, which occurred July 23 from wounds received in ac tion. It is needless to say that the parents are prostrated with grief, and as this is the second son out of the Burns family to make the supreme sacrifice on the battlefields of France; their sorrow is shaved by our people throughout the county. James Burns was killed in action in France May 28, 1918. The brothers left here a ’.he same time with Com pany G, and have now given their lives for their country. Another son, Patrick Burns, Jr., is a member of the Blackhawk division, which has been in the east awaiting orders to sail, and may be on the way over by now. John E. Burns enlisted April 3, 1917, and was a member of Company G. He was stationed at Ashland for a long time with the company guarding the ore docks. Later he accompanied Company G to Camp Douglas and W aco, Texas. In the early part of this year the company left this coun try for France, where they have been engaged in several battles. The deceased was born in Wausau and was about twenty years of age. He attended our public schools and was popular in athletics, being a val ued member of the football team. His death is mourned by his parents, one brother, Patrick Burns, Jr., and four sisters, Mrs. John Bliss and Misses Elizabeth, Mary and Margaret Burns of this city. CASUALTIES Edward Deronde, Racine.

Micheel of this city, who is stationed at Great Lakes, tells of life in the U. S. navy in the following let ter: “Great Lakes, 111., September 1, 191S. I have been transferred several times since coming here, and am now with the First Regiment band at Camp Dewey. I am getting along nicely. Of course, all we musicians do is play, and keep our quarters clean. The next Liberty Loan is right be fore us, and many of the Jackie bands will be touring the country during the next drive. Large bands of sixty piec es or more, like ours, are split up and sent out to furnish music and help along in the war activities. Last Fri day thirty of our members left for St. Louis, where they will tour in the Federal Reserve District down there, in the interest of the next Loan. The rest of us will leave any day. I think we will be at Milwaukee for the entire week of the State Fair. Then again we may go elsewhere. We never know until we are off, but at any rate, I know we will be out on the road for a month or two. During ordinary times when we do not go out for Liberty Loans, we give concerts in various cities for war activities, usually about two or three times a week. I would like to be in the band that makes Wausau this time. I think I will have to close for now. If I were to give you all the details about navy life, it would take me some time.” MARATHON WAR FUND The Marathon War Fund is about completed, while it was officially, closed a week ago, it will require some time to adjust matters, but it will crme out all right when those who have not done all they should, fully realize the great importance of the fund. Inasmuch as it will take care of the various funds such as the Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., K. C., Salvation Army and other like funds, which have heretofore been raised separate ly, at a great deal of trouble. A pamphlet, giving the names and amounts of all subscribers and all details, is to be published and each soldier from Marathon county fur nished a copy, also a list filed with the Co:nty Clerk for reference. What is called a “clean up’’ com mittee has been appointed with B. F. Wilson as chairman, which has com menced its work and will soon have it completed. WEATHER REPORT FOR AUGUST The month of August was a very warm one, with much humidity and many thunderstorms. In fact, we doubt whether a person living here any length of time can remember of there having been so many electric storms. The mean temperature was 67, which is the warmest month since 1912, when it was the same. The total rainfall was nearly five inches, or to be exact, 4.59. There are only a few years since records have been kept, showing more of a rain fall. The number of clear days, 18; partly cloudy, 9; cloudy, 4. There were thunderstorms on the 1. 5. 6,7, 8, 12, 21, 22 and 28. There were some days when the thermometer showed over 90 and a number when the temperature was ov er 80. KILLED BIG SNAKE A1 Hartwig is the champion snake slayer of the Big Woods region, hav ing to his credit a six-foot pine snake which he killed last week near the Stein cottage on Dam lake. It is not very often that snakes are found in thiß region.—Eagle River News. OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO. ITEMS OF NEWS BOILED DOWN FROM THE WAUSAU PILOT THIRTY-THREE YEARS AGO Tuesday, February 8, 1885 Lee Willard, son of Van R., has been taken in as a partner on the Merrill Advocate. Two new kind of roller skates are being made, one, steel rollers, cov ered with rubber, and the other box wood bound with raw hide. Object, less noise. L. W. Thayer is a lover of fine chickens, and, as a great many know, generally has on hand a lot of very choice ones. Lyme has kept them under lock and key all winter until Friday last. The day being fine, he thought, “I will let them out a little while to get the sun.” Two hours later he returned to look after them, but before reaching the house he dis covered unmistakable signs of war. Feathers, blood and a dead rooster told the tale. A large lynx was found in the chicken-house and killed. The animal had killed and carried away nine Chickens. All this happened at Little Rib. Balser Williams, who has been so journing in the southern part of the state, returned home last Friday. Jim McKay, Geo. Single, Forrie Mc- Kay, Geo. Tuttle, Chas. Mclndoe, Carl Hoellinger and Herb Cline were at the opening of the Mosinee roller rink last Saturday evening. Frank Young, who accidentally re ceived a shot in the arm about three months ago, is able to go around now without a sling, but it will be several months yet before he fully recovers the use of the member. P. B. Champagne, one of the heav iest loggers on the Wisconsin river, of Merrill, was at the Winkiey house last week. He says the lumbermen could not afik for a better winter for logging. LETTER FROM EDWARD P. OERTEL Edtvard P. Oertel, who is with the Supply company, 341st Infantry, U. S. A., 86th Division, was at Camp Upton, N. Y„ enroute to France, at the time of writing this letter. We publish a part of it, which follows: “Camp Upton, N. Y„ August 25, 1918. We are on cur way. I know that all the folks back home are with us boys, and we are going to do things— like we always did when we were in Wausau. We have been very busy preparing for our trip overseas. No one in civ ilian life has any idea what patience and equipment it takes to fully equip a regiment. It is a big job. We have the best captain in the Brigade and he has the best reliable assistants, and has been complimented many times by the higher authorities for the way his Supply company has handled the de tail in general. My work is very in teresting and I have a lot to attend to, but I am in this business with the same spirit -as if I were back with my dear friend, John A. Sullivan. He sure is the best fellow to work for, and I hope to be back with him some time next year, preaching the necessity of Life Insurance. Was very sorry indeed to learn that Edwin Kregel had to give up his life on the battle" field of France, and when the crack 86th Black-Hawk division gets over there, we shall havfe revenge. He was a close friend of mine and it sure hurts to learn the reverses of some of our brothers. My dear friend Clem Helling pre ceded me over by about a month, and I hope to meet him there. Won’t he be surprised to meet this bunch of Marathon county soldiers? We have many among us, and they are all like brothers to one another. Yesterday for a little excitement we pattoled down to a place called Blue Point, N. Y.—the great Oyster Bay. \ou will recall that George Rick sold these famous oysters at one time. It is one great place. We went in bath ing in the afternoon, and I had a dandy time in the salt water. Being one of those wise birds, I went in without bathing shoes and I cut my feet up in great style on those famous shells. We have discarded our russet shoes and are all supplied with hobnails. If I wor“ a pair of them going down Third street, it would be possible to hear me for a mile away. This is not much, but it proves that I have not forgotten the Pilot force and will write more in detail when I get over to where there is something doing. Have received the Pilot regu larly and the news items pertaining to the boys in the service are dandy and the first we look for. Your paper goes through ten or fifteen hands each week, and gets pretty much wrinkled up during that time. Every week the boys ask me if I have received the Wausau paper. Whenever I receive any news from home by way of papers I always remember the other Wausau boys and let them get a glimpse of home doings. I wish all the people back home con tinued prosperity, and we all appreci ate what they are doing to “back the boys,”;who are going over, and those who have gone, and to do their share to bring this outrageous war to an end for the cause we are fighting for, with victory on‘our side I’m sure. Good-bye to aft.” MILITARY TRAINING IN HIGH SCHOOL In place of the regular gymnasium work in the High school this year, military training will be taken up. C. S. Snyder and Glenn L. Batesole at tended the military training camp at Lake Geneva this summer, where they received instructions, and will be in charge of the work here in the High school. It is planned to form one bat talion. which will include three com panies, with ninety boys in each. The companies will drill twice a week at four o’clock for forty-five minutes. Schools will be conducted by the above instructors for officers’ posi tions in the companies and battalion. Nothing definite as to uniforms has been decided upon, but in case the uniforms ire wanted, they will have to be purchased by the students. WENT TO CAMP GRANT Last Saturday the following volun teers from this city, departed for Camp Grant. 111., where they will receive instructions in clerical work in the selective service system of the state: WiHiatn L. Spencer, Walter E. Lena, B. Earl Me’mg, Sol Hetnemkaa and Roman C. Deutoefc. All were In the limited military service class. A runaway occurred at the west end of Washington street, last Friday af ternoon, which caused the death of Aug. Weigel, of the town of Stettin. The lumber and shingle mill be longing to Dick Jewson, situated on the M. L. S. & W. R. R., about half way between Norrie and Eland, was totally destroyed by fire on Tuesday morning last. is a severe blow on “Dick,” as he did not carry a cent of insurance. Yesterday was a bright day and really the first one in a long while that the fine nags of our city, and there are many of them, could be tak en out and exercised. We noticed out on Grand avenue, S. M. Quaw, Frank Kelly, Hank Zentner, Taylor Alexan der, Albert Paff, James Dunn, Frank Montgomery, J. X. Brands, John Ringle, J. D. Wicker, E. A. Gooding, Chas. Williams, Fred Fernald and oth ers. All whizzed along ranging from a 2:50 to a 10 minute gait. On the west side there has been scraped a track wide enough for three cutters to go abreast, and nearly a mile in length, and termed the “Boulevard.” To the boulevard were taken “Lady Gold Dust,” driven by Hank Zentner, “Almont Ruttler,” by Albert Paff and Jas. Dunn, “Maria Halpin,” by J. X. Brands, “Bay Gelding,” by Chas. Wil liams, and in the race which followed, “Lady Gold Dust,” outstripped all competitors. “Maria,” did fine work and came in second best. Albert Paff says that he could have taken second place but Jake’s distorted countenance and his demoniacal yell of “get down there, you wild cuss,” broke his horse all up. The boulevard is an excellent place to speed horses, and a race is promised to take place there in a short time. JEWISH CELEBRATIONS The Jewish New Year (Rosh Hoshanah) was celebrated by the Jew ish people of Wausau, commencing Friday evening and continuing through Saturday. At Mt. Sinai temple, impressive ser vices were held Friday evening at eight o’clock and Saturday morning at ten o’clock. Dr. Ulrich of the Hebrew Union college of Cincinnati was in charge. Miss Wanda Hopp was or ganist at the services. A quartet including Max Vehlow, tenor; Mrs. Frank Boettcher, soprano; Mrs. P. L. Sisson, alto, and Emery James, bass, rendered several selections. The temple was beautifully decorated for the occasion in ferns, palms, flowers and the national colors. The United States flag and the Service flag were noticeable. The Beth Israel congregation had services at Castle hall Friday evening, Saturday morning and evening, and Sunday morning. Rev. B. Schwab of this city officiated. The Jewish New Year marks the beginning of the “ten days of repent ance,” which ends with Yom Kippur, or the day of atonement, the holiest in the year, beginning next Sunday and continuing through Monday. At this time impressive services will be held by the Jewish congregations. Several of our Jewish places of bus iness were closed Saturday until even ing, because of their New Year’s festi val.

BERT SCHWANBERG Druggist and Optician THE REXALL DRUG STORE Opposite Court House Phone 1105 W. C. T. U. MEETI?<G The Women s cnrisuan Temperance Union had another interesting meet ing last week in the parlors of the First Methodist church. A patriotic song service opened the meeting in charge of Mrs. S. H. Meadows and Mrs. D. J. Williams. The revised constitution which was read and adopted, provides for an as sociate vice-president from each chufch represented in the Wausau W. C. T. U. Mrs. G. G. Mclntosh had charge of its revision. It was decided to hold meetings on the east side every second Tuesday evening of each month at 7:30 o’clock, and on the west side every fourth Tuesday of each month at three o’clock in the afternoon. Following are the department super intendents as chosen: Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Welfare—Mrs. C. H. Peth. Evangel’.tic—Mrs. F. O. Crocker. Americanization—Mrs. G. G. Mcln tosh. Health—Mrs. EdwaiM Nicoils. During the evening Mrs. Louise Chartier gave an interesting talk on prohibition. Papers were given by Mrs. D. J. Williams, Mrs. Cassandra Thrasher and Dr. Harriet Whitehead. Mrs. Elmer Miller, the recording secretary, was directed to extend a vote of thanks to S. Winkelman for the use of a large tent by the union during fair week. The members had a rest room on the grounds, and also gave out free literature during the fair. A box of lunch, furnished from the Marathon War Fund and prepared by the W. C. T. U. of this city, is being given to every boy leaving here to enter the military service. As soon as the annual dues are paid in this organization the state W. C. T. U. paper called, “The Motor,” is re ceived by the members. It is desired to have all dues paid as soon as pos sible. The inclement weather on this meet ing ni,'ht kept away a number of people, who otherwise would have been there.
