The number of deaths throughout the coun try is appalling. It has now been on its rampage of death for a month. Ir some places it is diminishing; in oth ers it is increasing. In Wausau some homes have not had a touch while in others every member of the family is ill. The disease has left some of its victims in a condition which will take time to bring about complete recovery. It is announced that as Jos. E. Davies will make speeches in the state, commencing October 28th, and the democratic committee is to ar range as many dates as possible. It is doubiful whether the influenza will subside sufficiently to allow public meetings of this kind to be held in the state at that time. Congressman E. E. Browne intro duced a bill into the sixty-fourth con gress providing that mail order hous es be made to pay their just share of taxation. The revenue bill which has just passed the house of representa tives embodies his suggestions. It is estimated that it will raise from five to ten millions of dollars. Here tofore the mail order houses have es caped paying their just taxation. Some of the county editors feel that if they were in the place of President Wilson, they would have given Kaiser Bill very snippy answers on his peace proposals. Yep, the county editor knows a good deal. One more week before election, and again the Pilot calls attention to the urgency of electing Claire B. Bird to the State Senate for this district. Just make up your mind that lie will need every vote that can begiven him and then go and cast your vote for him. Marathon and Langlade coun ties need a man of the calibre of Mr. Bird to represent them. The democratic county ticket is com posed of splendid men of our county. Look over the ticket at the head of our editorial columns. —Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Cowling of As sumption, 111., have moved to Wausau, and for the winter will be at the home of the latter’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Merklein. CASUALTIES F. L. r> itterlc, Watertown. R. A. Bierkland.

FOURTH LIBERTY LOAN DRIVE Marathon County, As Always, “Over the Ton”—Exact Amount Not Yet Given Out In the Fourth Liberty Loan drive, completed last week, Marathon coun ty, as on all previous similar occa sions, “came over”, subscribing its full quota and placing itself in tht col umn of “100 per cent right” coun ties. The exact amount of Marathon coun ty’s subscription is not yet definitely known, for the reason that full re turns have not yet been received from some of the town officers, but it is known that the total will aggregate close to $2,224,00 or slightly beyond the minimum set for this county. A number of towns failed to contrib ute their full quota, but this deficien cy was more than made up by the city and several other villages and towns. Chairman Gilbert and Treasurer Wilson have been endeavoring to get the exact totals from each of the towns and villages, but not having done so, have' decided to issue no list show ing the subscriptions by towns and villages, for fear that in so doing some comunity may be placed in a bad light, as one of those that failed, and sooner than do this have decided to issue no detailed report until sure that the full returns are in their hands. It is a source of gratification to those who had this work in their hands and under their direction to know that Marathon has come through right, regardless of the enormous amount she was called upon to raise during this campaign. It was felt that our apportionment was rather more than fair, or rather equitable, for as worked out by the committee it was undoubtedly fair, as fair as anything of the kind could he, and this spit’* of fairness pervaded every move not alone of the state committee, but of the local committee and subcommit tees in making their apportionments to the various towns, school districts and to the individuals. Under conditions as they are the showing of 100 per cent by Marathon county is highly creditable. Financial conditions here have not been im proved by the war, as is the case in some other counties where their quo ta was taken up rapidly and ever over subscribed very much. We have no war industries here to speak of, that is. no new ones. We have our paper mills and sawmills, but these we had, and these have heavily hit by the in come tax and other war measures. In addition to the large number of young men drawn from us for the army, hun dreds more of wage earners have been attracted to outside places to take pos itions in plants that are primarily war industries. The only large class who have directly profited from the war are the farmers, who have been able to get much higher prices for their dairy and other products, but even these have been handicapped by the loss of productive labor from their farms, for there is hardly a farm but what has lost one or more young men, making it impossible for the farmers to enjoy all the apparent prosperity that the war has seemed to bring them. Propaganda and ignorance have al so contributed to make the work in this county more difficult than it should have been. Rumors of various conditions have been set afloat, ru more that the apportionment to towns was not fair, that no-, man of middle age would ever live long enough to get his money back, and the combat ing of these took time that should have been spent in securing subscrip tions. . When we consider everything in con nection with this last drive, Mara thon comity has reason to be proud of itself, and'those who were in ac tive charge of the work are to be comended for having made the splen did showing they did. WHISKEY AND RED PEPPER Liberal Doses of This Mixture Given Pneumonia Patients at Army Camps—Said to hr Life Saver John R. Ragan, Mr. and Mrs. Fred and Miss Margaret Ragan drove up from Grand Rapids Thursday and spent most of the day among local friends. The first named is Grand Rapids’ leading furniture dealer and undertaker and is especially promin ent in state and national gatherings of men engaged in these lines. His son, Fred, is enjoying a furlough from Camp Grant, Rockford, 111., where he is a member of headquarters’ com pany. During the recent epidemic of influenza the young man assisted for several days in hospital work and relates many distressing incidents of that terrible siege. The doctors and nurses were literally “driven to death” by the many demands upon them, thousands of the boys being stricken within a few days’ time and several hundred failed to survive the subse quent attacks of pneumonia. The medical authorities failed to observe prohibition tenets in treating the more seriously affected patients, as the pre scriptions were confined almost ex clusively to liberal doses of whiskey, into which red pepper was sprinkled. This treatment was also followed at Great Lakes and to have saved many lives.—Stevens Point Gazette. ANOTHER WAUSAU CASE It Proves That There’s a Way Out For Many Suffering Wau sau Folks Just another report of a case iu Wausau. Another typical case. Kid ney ailments relieved in Wausau with Doan’s Kidney Pills. Mrs. John Hildensperber. 1102 Sixth street gave the following statement October 20, 1913: “I had trouble with my hack for some time; a dull pain right across the small of it. I could hardly bring any strain on my back or loins. It was also bothered with a kink in my hack; it hurt me to turn over at night.and I couldn’t rest com fortably. I thought the trouble was due to my kidneys and began to use Doan’s Kidney Pills. Oue and a half boxes relieved me right away and I have been much better ever since.” On January 31. 191S: “1 have had no need of a kidney medicine since I endorsed Doan's Kidney Pills in 1913. I consider myself cured and give Doan's Kidney Pills the full credit.” Price 60c at all dealers. Don’t oim plv ask for a kidney remedy—get Doan's Kidney Pills—-the same that Mrs. Hildensperger had. Foster-Mil buru Cos., Mfgrs., Buffalo, N. Y. MAN SPENT FORTUNE IN SEARCH “I spent SI.SOO in 7 years treating with physicians, some specialists cost ing me $lO a visit, only to at last say that nothing could be done for me, that I had cancer or ulcers of the stomach. I suffered awful pains in my stomach, but after taking a few doses of Mayr's Wonderful Remedy these all disappear--1 and for 3 years am feel ing fine.” It is a simple, harmless preparation that removes the catarr hal mucus from the intestinal tract and allays the inflammation which causes practically all stomach, liver and intestinal ailments, including ap pendicitis. One dose will convince or money refunded. Bert Sch wan berg. Druggist Wausau, Wis. Written, authorized and paid for. and in behaif, by A. W. Prehn, Wausau, Wis.

Poft.^^°T the Wisconsin Loyalty Legion and the Congressional Patriotic League of the Eighth District. Not a politician or office seeker. Just a plain, 100 per cent. Ameri can business man, who will represent his district and the nation, and not himself alone. This is no time for petty personal politics; the nation needs men who have the nerve to do the right thing without regard to its effect upon their peasonal political ambitions. ocr J°hn W. Brown is such a man. He is a mechanist by trade and for . . s been at the head of the Knights of the Macabees in Wiscon sin. He is honest, capable and trustworthy. He was urged to make this run by hundreds of men who were supporters of the present Congressman, Edward E. Browne, until he proved, by his votes in congress, that he thought more of retaining his job than he did of the nation’s welfare. Johni W. Brown has the true American spirit; everything else must be set aside until the war is won, so that our boys may come home and the nation be at peace. Isn’t that the kind of a man you want to rep resent you in Congress ? Look for his name in the first column on the official ballot and make a cross in the square to the right of it.

We find more entertainment than in struction in an editorial of the Hart ford C'ournnt on the revised use ot barley. It refers *o its use in Bible times and finds this verse in the Book of Judges to give an idea of its qual ity: “And when Gideon was come, be hold there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Be hold, I dreamed a dream, and 10, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian and came unto a tent and smote it that it fell and over turned it, that the tent lay along.” The Courant seems to approve of the use of barley flour, though admit ting some difficulties in preparing it for bread. But it takes this Bible verse as evidence that its density would make it serviceable as a pro jectile.—Waterbury American. Written authorized and paid for, SI.GO. by 11. J. Abraham. H. J.

SCHULZE Democratic Candidate for REGISTER OF DEEDS OF MARATHON COUN TY (20 Yarn Widi the C. F. Duahar C.. Jewehn) CANDY-MAKING SUP PORTS THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES In answer to compli/nts that while consumers can get only two pounds of sugar at their grocery store, the con fectioner’s windows next door are filled with candies, Magnus Swenson, Food Administrator for Wisconsin, explained the attitude of the Adminis tration toward the manufacture of candy. “Consumers have no knowledge ot the amount of sugar used by the con fectionary industry,” he said. The Bureau of Chemistry and clever con fectioners are constantly experiment ing upon sugar saving formulas con taining corn and maple syrup, honey and invert sugar. “We have cut their sugar allot ment to 50 per cent of the amount they used during a corresponding period last year. Before this ruling went into effect confectioners used only 8 per cent of the total sugar con sumption in the United States; now they consume only 4 per cent. This averages one-half teaspoonful per per son per day. “Would you have the Food Admin istration close a big industry involv ing millions of dollars and which pro vides the means of living to hundreds of thousands of employees to save one-half teaspoon of sugar a day for you?” WATCH YOURSELF! Do you need a policeman to make you keep within your 2-pound sugar allotment? Will Hoover be obliged to spend $!>,000,000 and hire 100,000 men to RATION sugar in the United States? Or will you back up Hoover’s belief in Democracy and voluntari ly limit yourself to one-half pound a week ? Hoover knows exactly how much sugar we will have. He has figured out the amount that must go to our soldiers, to the Allies and to indi vidual Americans. If you take more than your own portion, you are stealing from someone else who will have to go without. Would you be pointed out after the war as “He took sugar from the soldiers ” Count the spoonfuls, your own, your family’s or your neighbor’s and SAVE SUGAR. FINE CHEESE EXHIBIT AT MANITOWOC COUNTY FAIR “The Cheese Exhibit at the Manito woc county fair this year was good to look upon,” said E. L. Alderhold of Necnah, who acted as judge, “and in quality was as high, if not higher, than any exhibit of its size I ever saw at a county fair.” Longhorn and young American cheese were featured, and prizes were given to Twin and Dairy cheese and Creamery and Dairy butter. At a time when the public is being exhorted to eat dairy products, the attractiveness of such exhibits fur thers the work of the Wisconsin Food Administration. The many varieties of cheese are advertised, and the rea sonableness of its cost in comparison with meats is demonstrated. “It is a fair general estimate that a given amount of money spent tot American cheese at ordinary prices will buy about twice as much food as it would if spent for meat.” claims Dr. Sherman, profesßorof Food Chem istry at the Columbia university. "Generally speaking, cheese sells at no higher price pei pound than the ordinary cuts of meats, while Is is considerably richer In both proteix and fat” AS HAVE OTHER HUN THINGS Man Complains That His German- Made Clock Has Completely Gone to the Bad. My old alarm clock has gone to smash. That may not be a news item nor it may not interest you, but up at our home the fact that thp alarm clock wouldn’t go any more w T as an event of interest. It was ticking away on the shelf at a quarter to 11 the night of July 17. I took it up to wind it. One twist, and —rattletebank, siss boom ah. Something went all to pieces in the works. More twiScS, shaking, putting the clock to ear and final determination that it was done for. I thought to look it over before depositing it in the ash can. On the back was scratched the month and day of the purchase in 1912. I was looking on the face for the last time and studying it closely. Then down at the bottom I saw in small letters: “Made in Germany.” There it had been ticking away on the shelf year after year, sounding its alarm regularly, and yet never before had I noticed that detested inscription. Probably if I had it would have gone into the ash can long before. Just like a lot of other “Made in Germany” things that we didn’t know were around until we found them out. But the old German clock is busted, the works have gone to smash, it has sounded its last alarm, and as I medi tated on It I thought how true of everything else “Made In Germany," including the juggernaut war machine, 40 years in the building, with which the kaiser was to ride untrammeled over all the rest of the world. The works “is busted.”—E. E. K., in Syra cuse Post-Standard. Benefits of War. That the benefits of war overshadow its damages Is the firm conviction of Uncle John of Excelsior Springs Standard, who writes: “It shows the world, fer instance, how to loosen up Its band an’ to deal a sort of jestice that the brute can understand. It reminds the unwashed heathen, which they mighty nigh for got, that there’s hell inside a Yankee when his blood is bilin’ hot! “Then —we know the joys of savin’, which we maybe hadn't saw till the roarin’ beast of Berlin got too handy with his paw; so, we’ve somehow, hitched our waggln to an everlastiu’ star, that will keep right on a-shlnin’ when we’ve clean fergpt the war.” Mere Gin, CHICAGO k IfOKTII W EHTBHN RAILWAY \rrlve i^av# >Vau.sar Wausau I:UCa. m.l ApplutOh ( 2:Ut>a.tu. 3 :2o a. m. | o.**bkt>th. i 7:u0&.c0 m-> Fond du Lac. \ 12:03j>.cu. 12:27p. ob. j Milwaukee, i 4:55p.m. lO.'UBp. m.j Ohlrwi lllMipm.
