FRIDAY, JANUARY 14. 1910. CORRESPONDENCE Cambridge Steven Haight left Monday for Du luth and from there he makes a trip into South Dakota. Andrew Olson and Janna Matson, of the town of Christiana, were married Dec 30th in the parsonage near Rock dale by Rev John Halvorson. Herman Moen, who is connected with the agricultural farm at the U of W, has been assisting the agricultural sta tion at Clear Lake, Minn, for a few weeks. Supt B L Delemater reports good progress on the repairs to the locomo tive. A boilermaker has been at work all week and he hopes to have the en gine in shape to buck the snow banks by the end of the week. Lohmaier’s team that carries mail and passengers to London ran away Monday night, tipping the passengers and mail into the snow. No one was hurt and the team was captured at Kroghville. The bad condition of the roads accounts for the accident. On Dec 23rd, at the home of Mr and Mrs J R Lein a gathering assembled in nonor of Hendrick Larsen Lein’s 84th birthday, and as a remembrance a gold headed cane was given him which was donated by his children.

Also a reward of the same amount to any member of this associa tion who secures the arrest and convic tion of any one found guilty of stealing poultry from any one not a member of this association. The many friends and acquaintances of Wm T Boyd were surprised to learn of his death Friday afternoon, Dec 31, 1909, following, as it did, but a few days of sickness. For some time his health had not been good, and a weak heart made it impossible for him to make a winning fight against pneu monia. Wm T Boyd was born in Lu zerne, Pa, Nov 2, 1842. His father was a foundry man, so the boy practically grew T up with that as his trade. He came west in 1867 and worked in the* Harris shops in Janesville for six years. He became a citizen of Evansville in 1874 when he accepted the position as foreman of the foundry of the Baker Mfg Cos, where he worked 21 years. Mr and Mrs Boyd then spent apout two years traveling, enjoying a well earned rest. For the past eight years he had been engaged in the furniture and un dertaking business in this city, being one of the most public spirited men in the community. He served two terms as president of the village board. It was during his administration that the present city hall was built. For two terms he served as county supervisor, and it was during this time that the new county house was built. Dealness Cannot be Cared by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the Eus tachian Tube. When this tube gets in flamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is en tirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflamation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal con dition, hearing will be destroyed forever, nine cases out of ten are caused by ca tarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall’s Catarrh Cure. Send fro circular, free, F. J. Cheeney & Cos., Toledo, O.

They were en route to their home in Edgerton from Indepen dence, lowa, where they have been vis iting. Mrs Electa Saunders Bond, one of the pioneers of this section, passed away at the home of her nephew, Lew Boss, on Wednesday evening, Dec 29th. The deceased was over eighty years of age and had been ill for a long time. She was born in Andover, New York. Her father, Mr Saunders, settled in this vicinity many years ago, taking up a grant of land from the government. Last Thursday at twelve o’clock Mrs Andrew Cullen, an old resident of Rock county, pnssed away at her home in the town of Harmony. Besides a husband she is survived by three children—Si mon F Cullen of Platteville and Sarah Anna and John Cullen of Harmony. A brother and two sisters, Mathew Smith of South Dakota, Mrs Mary Ford of the town of Porter, and Mrs McCor mick of Hutson, Minn, are also left to mourn her death. The funeral was held Saturday morning at ten o’clock from St. Mary’s church and the remains in terred in Mt Olivet cemetery. After many weeks of suffering, Wil liam H Morgan, one of the old and re spected residents of this vicinity, pass ed to the great beyond Sunday night, January 2, 1910, at about 10 o’clock, aged 79 years, 9 months and 2 days. Early last summer he suffered a partial stroke of paralysis, gradually failing in health until the last few weeks of his life he was unable to leave his bed. During his suffering he had the tender and thoughtful care of his loving wife and daughter and the deep solicitude of his sister, Mrs Ezra Goodrich, and all that medical skill could do was done for his relief. Major William H Morgan was born in Danvers, Essex county, Mass, on the 31st day of March, 1830, and was a son of Isaac P and Rebecca G Morgan. When a lad of thirteen years the family removed to Lowell, Mass, and in the schools of that city he completed his education. When the president issued his call for 75,000 vol unteers to serve three years, acting upon his patriotic impulse and love of country, he responded to the call and enlisted in the 7th Wisconsin Regiment as a member of Company B. The reg iment was mustered into the United States service in the month of May, 1861, and was then drilled and prepared for war and ordered to the front. Mr Morgan took part in the various battles and skirmishes until the 28th day of August, 1862, at the battle of Gains ville, where he was wounded. Being left on the field, he was taken prisoner by the rebels but was subsequently paroled. Stoughton Angelo B Horten of Oregon was elected by the school board to fill the vacant principalship of the Central school, caused by the resignation of Claud Stout of Albion, who will take a position with a Chicago firm. Mr Hor ten will assume his duties Jan 24, and will teach the sixth and seventh grades. Friday was pay day at the shops of the Mandt Wagon company, which event takes place twice a month. The last payment was made on Christmas eve, and the sum reached $20,000, mak ing a total of $40,000 for the month. As fewer men are employed on the new buildings there may now be a slight falling off. The money is sent from Moline and no checks are used. It is all cash. Word was received here of the death in Milwaukee of H O Wood, a brother of W S Wood and Charles Wood, of this city. Death was due to heart di sease. Deceased, who was about 67 years of age, was in business in Stoughton forty-five or fifty years ago, and w r as now a traveling salesman, be ing, it is said, the oldest salesman in point of service now on the road. Sur viving him are his wife and two sons.

The first prize will be in the professional class where $lO5 will be distributed. In the amateur, or second class, prizes totaling SSO will be given away. Farmers say that rabbits are nearly starved on account of the deep snow, and instead of gathering in holes, as formerly, they are now found in old corn shocks in great numbers, and where the corn has been husked there is but little food. Whenever a farmer wants a rabbit for dinner, he' goes to a shock, tips it over, and then follows a few rods through drifts, when the poor bunny becomes tired and gives up. In fact, they are too weak to make a long run. Fort AtKlnaon. Paul Tratt was called to Watertown by the sad intelligence of the death ot his father, which occurred at about 6:30 Tuesday evening. Mr Tratt was 70 years of age and is survived by four sons. A class of McFadden disciples has been sojourning at Palmyra until re cently. Their diet the first week was plain cold water, the second week oat meal gruel and the third a fruit cracker from a Battle Creek hashery. After filling up on this sumptuous fare they were able to race around the town barefooted and thinly clad, which all goes to show that the American people are living altogether too high for profit. After spending New Year’s day in Rockford, Henry Weinel, a broker em ployed in this city, returned to Janes ville late that evening, hoping to get to Fort Atkinson on the nine o’clock train. He found that was impossible, and being anxious to return so as to re sume his work the next day, undertook to walk the journey of twenty-one miles. He got on fairly well until he arrived at Koshkonong at about 7 am, when he became conscious that his feet were freezing. He then went to a creamery and asked permission to warm himself, but Weinel alleges that his pleadings were in vain, although he of fered to pay for the accommodation. He continued to Fort Atkinson and finally arrived here more dead than alive. Physicians now have the man in charge and hope to be able to save both his feet. Deerfield Mrs S Holman, who broke her hip joint about three months ago, had the splints removed last week, and this week has been sitting in a chair part of the time and has also tried to walk a little with crutches. f *. • t Ole Westby, one of the pioneers of this village, died at the home of his sons here Wednesday night, from heart trouble and other complications. He was 59 years old. He had been ailing for some months and had been confined to his bed nearly two months. Freight Engineer Ed Keane, pulling an extra freight through here on NeW Year’s night, fell on the tender of his engine while at this station and injured himself so severely that he was unable to proceed with the train. The engine was cut loose from the train and the injured man taken to Madison. H J Klinefelter and Howard Hoff man accompanied by Will Dewey and John Wilson of Lake Mills captured three good sized red foxes last Monday. One was dug out of a hole near the east churches and two were dug out of one hole near the west churches. None of the animals were shot. Five hounds assisted in the chase. The dogs were given shifts, two and three being sent out on the track while the others were resting. This is a favorable time for catching foxes owing to the deep snow. Unappreciated Efforts. Unselfish goodness is seldom appre ciated in this world of ours. There was that man in the electric car, for instance. Having rung up three fares in his efforts to stop the car for the lady that sat on the opposite side, he tossed after her the umbrella that be longed to the little gray whiskered man on his right. Neither the gray whis kered man nor the conductor liked the thoughtful Samaritan for his al truistic efforts.—Boston Transcript. There Are Better Seats. "He is now. they say. on the very pinnacle or fame, and yet he isn’t ex actly in comfortable circumstances.” "That’s not surprising. Did you ever sit on a pinnacle ot any sort?”—Brook lyn Citizen The Better Way. "Awfully rude of him to throw a kis at me.” "Yes. my dear: those are things which always ought to be delivered in person.’’—lllustrated Bits. What He Found. “He went into the country to find solitude." . "Did he find it?” "No; quite the opposite. He sat down on an ant hill.” Combination of Good Papers.

It may be making or shorten ing sail, bending or unbending fine or heavy weather canvas, squaring in or bracing up the yards, tacking or wear ing ship, and, no matter what the la bor, one always had the satisfaction of seeing the result. The speed and sail ing qualities of a vessel were things that could be discussed with interest as well as the length of passage. In bad weather, when excitement ran high and cursing was considered quite in order, struggling up aloft with wet or frozen canvas—one hand for the ship and the other for yourself—ou a dark, dirty night put a man on his met tle, and should the foresail be handled or the main topsail settled and the cry of “Splice the main brace!” be heard— well, one felt at peace with the world. In the tropics catching sharks, har pooning dolphins and porpoises, sing ing. dancing, telling yarns and read ing over old love letters are diversions not easily forgotten by those who have experienced them. Being becalmed in the tropics on a beautiful moonlight night brought home to one the beau ties and wonders of nature and the ex istence of a God with whom one felt in closer touch on such nights as those. —A British Marine Officer in Atlantic. Slightly Acquainted. As an instance of the '•marrying in haste’* principle that obtains in some American cities an English lady who visited Chicago relates how her maid, who accompanied her, quickly became imbued with the desire to become Mrs. Somebody. One morning she appeared before her mistress and, with glowing eyes, announced that she had named the day and would become a wife at the end of the week. “Are you going back home, then?” the lady asked. “Oh. no, ma’am; it’s an American gentleman,” replied the maid. “But,” remonstrated her mistress, “we’ve only been here a fortnight.” . “That’s no matter. He wants the w'edding to be on Saturday.” “ Well, can’t ycu get him to postpone the marriage just a little till I can get another maid?” “Well, ma’am, I’d like to oblige you; but, you, see. I don’t feel well enough acquainted to ask him to do that.” — London Answers. A Mean Trick. “Talking of mean tricks,” said the big man, “there was Ballantine. This man Ballantine came in late to a song recital at Palm Beach, and there wasn’t a vacant seat in the house. “Ballantine noticed Mrs. Jerome Blank. Mrs. Jerome Blank, he knew, had a very handsome husband that she kept a strict watch over. She didn’t like him to associate with any of th ? fair sex. “Ballantine, edging near to Mrs. Blank, who had an excellent seat, said in a loud voice to a friend: “ ‘Who w’as that enormously pretty girl I saw Jerome Blank talking to on the pier?' “In about four seconds Mrs. Blank was gone and Ballantine w r as seated comfortably in her chair.” —Kansas City Star. A Curious Experience. Lombroso, the famous Italian crimi nologist, once had a curious experi ence. He was in a printing office cor recting the proofs in his “Delinquent Man” with the chief reader when on reaching a page which dealt with a young man who, impelled by jealousy, had stabbed his fiancee he made a surprising discovery. The proofreader was this man. “Suddenly,” Lombroso said in telling the story, “he threw himself at my feet, declaring that he would commit suicide if I published this story with his name. His face, before very gen tle, was completely altered and almost terrifying, and I was really afraid that he would kill himself or me on the spot. I tore up the proofs and for several editions omitted his story.” Cooking Your Goose. The phrase “I’ll cook your goose for you” originated in this manner: Eric, king of Sweden, coming to a certain town, besieged it, but. having few sol diers, was obliged to desist. The in habitants in derision hung out from the walls a goose on a pole. Later Eric returned with re-enforcements and in reply to the challenge of the heralds observed that he had come “to cook their goose for them” and pro ceeded to storm the town and make it hot for the inhabitants. A Sporting Chance. “I’ll teach you to play at pitch and toss!” shouted the enraged father. “I’ll flog you for an hour. I will!” “Father,” instantly said the incorrigi ble as he balanced a penny on his thumb and finger. “I’ll toss you to make it two hours or nothing.”—Cas sell’s Journal. The Thiev of Time. Teacher—Johnny, what is tlio mean ing of the word “procrastinate?” Pu pii— To put off. Teacher—Right. Use it in an original sentence. Pupil—The brakeman procrastinated the tramp from the train.—Cleveland Leader. There Are Exceptions. “We are all born equal,” quoted the wise guy. “Don’t try to tell that to the mother of a first baby,” cautioned the simple mug.—Philadelphia Record. Different Wants. “What we want,” said the attorney to the reporters, “is justice.” “What I want” said the client to the attorney, “is a verdict in my favor.”— Life. Arc Doctors Any Good?
