Many of the bombs with which Austrian aviators attacked Venice also were displayed. There was also a showing of new American equipment. Long before the train pulled in and was finally placed on Shingle street, west of the A. Kickbusch Grocery Co.’s place of business, thousands of people were gathered to see the sights.

INGRAHAM HEARD FROM He Is Now In France, Where He Has Met Wausau Friends A letter was received on Thursday, Sept. 19th, by Mrs. C. H. Ingraham from Mr. Ingraham, dated London, Sept. Ist, in which he says: “At the Y. M. C. A. hut the night before, we saw E. H. Sotfiern and Mary Ander son, in ‘Four Scenes from Macbeth,’ Ben Greet was also one of the cast. We also had a very fine talk from Ad miral Simms. I went through the House of Parliament, personally con ducted by Hon. John Burns, member of Parliament. He gave us some fine talks on the different customs of the House. The House has 1100 rooms and I actually sat in the House of Commons. On the boat going over, I met a young soldier by the name of Gyp Hillam,' who worked for Mr. Fred Burt nine years ago and knew Will LaCerte very well.” On Saturday Mrs. Ingraham received another letter dated Paris, Sept. 3rd, in which Mr. Ingraham tells of meet ing Dr. S. M. B. Smith at a Y. M. C. A. Hostess House, where they were for lunch. He says Dr. Smith is look ing and feeling fine and they were going to gether to try to find Lieut. Neuman Beilis.. He also says: “France is a beauti ful country and Paris is a beautiful city. There are lots of fine looking stalwart men in uniform, the officers are especially fine looking and very natty in appearance. The women are beautiful also; they dress in excellent taste and nearly all look like our splendid American people. The spirit and morale of the people is of the highest order. I have a good room and I am feel ing fine, was not a bit seasick on the trip from N. Y. Had a physical ex amination by an army physician to day and he said I was in splendid condition. I shall see any Wausau and Mara thon Cos. boys that I can reach and find out where they stop when they come up to Paris. Will go to the American University club today. Ad dress my letters to 12 rue d’ -Aquesseau Paris, France and tell my friends to write to me.” FROM REV. W. 0. CARRIER Great Lakes, 111., Sept. 14, 1918. My Dear Mr. Thayer, Editor of the “Pilot” — It is eighteen years ago this month that I left Wausau after twelve years as a resident there, but I still have the kindest regard for your city and there is no place in the world quite so dear to me. During all these years, both as a resident there and since, I have been a faithful reader of “The Pilot” and have always regarded it as one of the best community papers I ever knew. Since the first of June I have been connected with the Y. M. C. A. work at Great Lakes, 111. I am,under ap pointment to go overseas but circum stances have made it necessary to de lay my going so I am devoting myself to the work here, and as you are pub lishing a number of war letters I thought I would add mine to the rest. Gieat Lakes Training Station now has nearly fifty thousand men in train ing and is at an astonishing enlarg ing rate, with the expectation of hav ing accommodations for a hundred thousand men in the near future. The Station at present is divided into seventeen regiments and there will be many more soon. The plan of the Y. M. C. A. is to have a Hut or Head quarters in every Regiment with a corps of Secretaries to look after the general welfare of the men, physically, intellectually and spiritually. lam in a Detention Camp where the men come direct from their homes and spend three weeks in preparation for their advance training. They receive their uniforms, have a careful medical examination, are vaccinated and in occulated and given preliminary mili tary drill. It is one of the most in teresting periods in a sailor’s life, as he enters upon his Navy life and adjusts himself to new conditions Men come here from all over the United States and are divided into Companies of 144 men, in which fre quently no two men* previously knew each other. It is my privilege to be associated with these men during these early days. I speak to all the new Companies in Camp Decatur shortly after there arrival and give such advice, and helpful suggestions as seem necessary. I am enabled to meet these men personally in a friend ly way in the barracks and to have with them a most delightful fellow ship. Because of my years I am com monly known among the fellows as “Dad.” and one certainly learns to love these men almost the same as his own sous. There are many things that take place in military life that might well be eliminated but I am frank to say that everj day I spend at Great Lakes, my appreciation of the young manhood of the country increases and I come to love men more and more. The moral tone of the Navy is high; the spirit of patrio tism is intense and there is a kindly expression of interest in one another that makes for comradeship and friend ship. Two or three months training here is preparing the large majority of these men for active service and the Y. M. C. A. with its many activ ities is certainly doing much to help in the efficiency of our men, and some of us who are too old to be in the service feel that we can accomplish a great deal by being thus associated in a helpful way with the military organization. I frequently meet Wau sau men here and always feel a per sonal interest in them. Cordially vours, W. O. CARRIER. DON’T BE SELFISH When you receive an interesting and satisfying letter from your soldier boy vho is over there making history, don't be selfish. There are hundreds of Pilot readers who are aching to come in touch with him. They feel proud of their Marathon county sol diers. The Pilot will be only too glad to receive and to publish letters from soldiers abroad and from sailors or marines. Stiure your pleasure with others.

CAPTURED BLACK BEAR Sunday Noon Front of Murdock House —Shipped to Madison In the early years of Shawano per haps a black bear was seen in the city or village then, but it is not often that a black bear cub is captured in front of the Murdock House. Sunday, about noon, Mrs. Miller discovered a small black bear in her garden. She notified Will Tone and a few others, and they chased the bear down the steps lead ing to the barber shop under the Mur dock House. Will had a rope and it did not take him long to get the rope around the cub’s nose so he could not bite. He was taken to Will’s place and a collar was placed around the bear’s neck and then the crowd com menced to come and see the live bear. After a short time he was placed in the barn, and someone suggested that it was a Red Cross bear and those who wished could pay five or ten cents for seeing the bear. We understand that SB.OO was collected in this way and that amount will be turned over to a good cause. Will telephoned to Madison Sunday to see what to do with the bear and they told him to ship the same by ex press to Madison, when it would be sent to the battleship Mississippi, where he will be a mascot. The bear was given the name of Pershing, and we hope that the ship he will be on will have its share in getting the Kaiser. — Shawano Advocate. ASKS FOR AN INCREASED TARIFF The Wisconsin Valley Electric com pany through its manager, M. C. Ew ing, has made application to the Rail road commission of Wisconsin to in crease its street car rates. flie present legal rates for fares for street railway service now effec tive in Wausau and between Scholfield and Rothschild are as follows: CASH FARES City of Wausau 5c Between Wausau and points with out the city limits 25c TICKET FARES City of Wausau, adult tickets— -6 for 25c City of Wausau, child’s tickets— -8 for 25c Between Wausau and Schofield— -25 for $1.50 Between Wausau and Scholfield— -24 for $2.00 The company sets forth that the above tariffs do not provide sufficient revenue to pay operating expenses, in cluding taxes and depreciation there fore applies for authority to increase rates. The company asked for authority to increase the tariffs by abolishing the “six for a quarter” city tickets and by increasing the charges for such other cash tickets fares as may seem just and equitable to the commission. PAUL F. KORDUS DIES FROM WOUNDS Another member of Company G has met death on the battle fields of France. Paul Felix Kordus, of the town of Cassel, was wounded in a battle on the 2d of August, two days afterwards he was found, and though every care and attention was paid him, he passed away on the 24th of August on ship board, where he had been taken. The remains were brought to Newport News and from there to Milwaukee, where the funeral services were held from St. Vincents’ Catholic church on Monday and in terment was in the church cemetery. Relatives from this county attended the services. Deceased was 23 years of age and is survived by his mother, Mrs. Frank Kordus, of the town of Cassel and eight brothers and three sisters. He joined Company G in April, 1917, going to Ashland, Waco, and to France with the company. FRATERNITIES WORTH WHILE Another incident has happened since our last issue that goes to show thaf it pays to be a member of some Fra ternal organization. When war was declared and a great number of the members of the Fraternal Order of Eagles gave up their civil duties to take up the defense of our country, the members who were left at home decided that the loved ones whom these members left behind should have some material protection in case that the father or son was compelled to pay the supreme sacrifice; therefore a fund was created into which each member contributed the modest sum of ten cents per month and when tak en as a whole the large fund of over 500,000 dollars is created and out of which the sum of one thousand dol lars is paid to the beneficiary of these dear ones. Last week Mr. Tatrick Burns, father of James Burns received this gratuity and the check for Otto Melang’s par ents is expected to be here any day. Would that every one of our boys, who are now fighting the big fight were a member of some such organiz ation. SOME LIBERTY LOAN SLOGANS’ Wear your old clothes and buy Li berty Bonds. Liberty Bonds or German Bondage. “Come across” or the Kaiser will. The soldier gives; you must lend. Liberty Bonds or German taxes. Buy over here to win over there. It’s billions for defense or billions for indemnity. For Fo.h and freedom; buy bonds. A bond slacker is the kaiser’s backer. A man who won’t lend is the kaiser’s friend. The more bonds you buy the fewer boys will die. Let all get on the bond wagon. Be one of the millions to lend the billions. Dig up the coin and bury the Hun. Buy bonds before it’s verboten. Idle dollars are pro-German. Put the “pay” into patriotism. Bonds speak louder than words. If yju can't fight, your money can. Fret men buy bonds; slaves wear them. USED FOR GAS MASKS Our grocers have received a cir cular from the u. S. Food Adminis tration, asking the following to be saved and turned over to the Red Cross society for shipments, to be used in making gas masks for soldiers: Peach stones. lTune pits, apricot pits, olive date seeds, plum pits, walnut shells, cherry pits. Brazil nut shells, hickory nut shells, butternut sbells. These are reduced to charcoal am used in. the manufacture of gas masks. Wood charcoal has proven deficient. Great quantities of stones, pits, seeds, nut shells, are wanted. OCCURRENCES OF LONG AGO. ITEMS OF NEWS BOILED DOWN FROM THE WAUSAU PILOT THIRTY-THREE YEARS AGO Tuesday, February 17, 1885 Jim Burns now has both his ice houses full.

King of the regular army, who is well known as a military man and an author, deliver his lecture, “Custer’s Last Fight,” at the opera house early next month. Further announcements will be made soon. Capt. J. D. Womer left for New York ast Thursday to purchase new goods for his tailor establishment. If you want to know any thing about the recent snow blockade, just talk to Capt. J. E. Leahy.

Knox of Wau sau was in the city on Wednesday- Mr. Knox says they will put in seven million feet and have already banked four million feet of logs. They have four camps, two on Somo and two on Spirit. Sales from their yard at Wau- DEMOCRATS STAND ON BIG ISSUES The democrats of Wisconsin met in Madison on Tuesday to adopt a plat form and to choose a democratic state central committee. The convention took a decided stand on three great issues and formulated a basis for an aggressive democratic campaign. The issues that the demo crats raised by announcing their af firmative support of them are: 1. Woman suffrage. 2. The elimination of instruction in foreign languages in the graded schools. 3. A pledge on the liquor question placing the democrats in accord with the national administration on (his subject. The democratic platform outside of the planks on woman’s suffrage pro hibition and the elimination of foreign languages from the schools was de voted largely to the question of the support of the administration in the war and pledges the unanimous sup ort of the democrats to the adminis tration in the war emergency. Planks in the platform criticise Gov. Philipp for his attitudes on the embargo and the selective draft question. The democratic national administra tion is to be placed in issue in every move of the democrats in Wisconsin and the fight is to be a Woodrow Wilson democratic one, which means on patriotic issues from the outset. The democratic state central com mittee chosen was as follows; First district, E. J. Showalter, Ra cine, and J. A. Jenson, Edgerton. Second district, W. S. Henry, Jeffer son, and J. S.

Shields, has many very flowering plants, at his home on North Sixth street. Last Wednesday it was our privilege to examine one, which had just blossomed and which he was taking to a friend’s home, that he might have a look at it. The Eng lish name of the plant is “Living Rock,” and is of the cactus variety. It blossoms once a year and has from one to two beautiful light plhk flow ers. It has the appearance of a rock and makes one wonder at the beauty of the flowers which it produces. Its botanical name is “Anhalonium.” It is found in the mountains of Mexico where, sometimes, no rain falls for a year. It looks like some curiously carved specimen of stonework upon which days of tedious labor has been spent and yet it lives, grows, blooms, and enjoys plenty of s The plant attains a size of eight inches in di ameter. WAR CAMP COMMUNITY SERVICE Justice M. B. Rosenberry of Madison, State Chairman of the War Camp Community Service is thoroughly or ganizing the state. He has had the state divided up into 10 districts. Wausau is in District No. 3, over which A. L. Kreutzer of this city is chairman.

Krugmeier, Appleton. Tenth district, D. C. Colidge, Downing, and Knut Anderson, Eau Claire. Eleventh district, John Chappie, Ashland, and Peter S. Ermon, Superior. SHOULD FILE APPLICATIONS Because of the failure of Wisconsin employers to file their applications for help with the United States Employ ment bureaus located in all of the dif ferent cities of the state, and because upwards of one hundred employers in the state have failed to file any re ports showing that their men were needed to do war necessities work, this state may be called upon to fur nish upwards of 6,000 laborers to other states on Oct. 1. This is the statement of Chairman George P. Hambrecht of the Wisconsin Indus trial commission who has charge of the United States labor problem in Wisconsin. Hambrecht said that on Aug. 1, Wisconsin was called upon to furnish 6.980 men for war labor be fore Oct. 1. Today upwards of 9,000 applications have been filed. He said that many emloyers were hiring the men independently and not through the labor bureaus and as a result the state was not receiving its proper credit. Unless the employers file as required by law, it is probable that this state may be required to send upwards of 6,000 men into the industries of other states on Oct. 1.
