Tobacco Notes The American Cigar Cos. opened their warehouse at Stoughton this week with 60 hands. The Edgerton branch also opened Monday employing 75 hands. Mr. A. L.

Pinkerton of the Pinker ton Tobacco Cos. of Toledo, with Will Chalmers of Watertown, who looks after the interests of the firm in this state, were visitors in this market on Wednesday. Mr. August Eisenlohr, of the Phila delphia firm of Otto Eisenlohr & Bro., has passed a few days of the week in this market getting acquainted with the merits of the new crop purchased for the firm by Mayor Ellingson. L. C. Larson of Cambridge delivered his 4 acre crop to the United Cigar Manufacturers’ Cos. on Tuesday which weighed in 6815 pounds of wrappers and binders or over 1700 pounds per acre. At 10 and 2c he received $702.80 or $175 per acre, a record that will be hard to beat. Mr. T. B. Earle left Tuesday morn ing for Wheeling, W. Va., to close up his account with Block Bros, for the year, whom he represents in the Wis consin field. Mr. Earle has handled nearly 800,000 pounds of strips for this firm the past season through the ware houses at Readstown and Edgerton, the last being packed this week. He will continue his trip to the eastern markets before his return. W; T. Jefferson, of the Jefferson To bacco Cos. recently organized at Sparta, was in town Saturday for a short‘stay. He informs us that his company opened their warehouse at Sparta this week where a packing of the new crop of several hundred cases will be put up. Mr. Jefferson’s connection for several years with the American Cigar Cos. has given him an experience and acquaint ance with the 'trade that will prove in valuable for the new concern. THE GOVERNOR GUEST OF HONOR At the Business Men’s Banquet on Wednesday Evening. The third banquet given under the auspices of the business and profession al men of Edgerton, took place at the Carlton hotel Wednesday evening with Gov. J. 0. Davidson as the guest of honor. About 125 covers were laid and the occasion proved a decidedly enter taining one to all present. The music for the dinner hour was provided by Misses Lucile and Kathleen Culton in violin selections and Luella Post as oc companist and added much to the en joyment of the evening. W. S. Heddles, presiding as toast master, introduced Gov. Davidson, who expressed his pleasure at being present at so large a gathering of the repre sentative business men of Edgerton, some of whom he knew could talk bet ter than he for it was reported there were men present who had the reputa tion of talking some of his Crawford county friends out of their crop of to bacco. It was natural he thought that Edgerton should be a great tobacco center for it was located in Rock Cos., one of the finest agricultural districts in the world. No wonder Wisconsin is a great state for agriculture produces all the wealth and Wisconsin is the garden of Eden. No city is a success, he said, unless the business men stand shoulder to shoulder and a business men’s club ought to bring good results. The gov ernor also spoke of the educational sys tem of the state as being in the front rank and asserted that taxes paid for education was the best investment that can be made. C. H. Babcock was the next speaker upon the subject of good roads, who told of the advantages of improved streets and country roads to every com munity. Senator Owen, who is chairman of the special legislative committee on banking, was then introduced, who said his committee had been endeavoring to formulate a law that would secure ab solute security to depositors in banks, and had spent much time in investigat ing the guarantee laws of other states. He discussed the question at some length and believed that sooner or later the public would be afforded greater security on bank deposits. He also called attention to the fact that since the passage of the present statp banking law not a dollar had been lost to depositors in the state banks of Wis consin. The speaker, as well as Gov. Davidson, took occasion to pay a flat tering tribute to Assemblyman Whit tet. The senator said it was no small distinction to Edgerton to be the home of so able a legislator. The last speaker was Prof. F. L. Roethe, who spoke of the advantages of home surroundings in the formation of character of the young. Referring to the matter of good roads, the chairman on motion was in structed to appoint a committee of five citizens to make an investigation of the best manner of street improvements for a city the size of Edgerton, which will be announced later. A committee to arrange for the next banquet of the Business Men’s associa tion was selected to consist of Oscar Jenson, Wm. Pel ton and Sydney Em ery. Janesville Turns Down Commission Law After one of the most spirited cam paigns known in the history of Janes ville politics, the voters on Tuesday turned down the proposed change from government by the mayor and common council to the newly created rule by commission by a vote of 1,017 to 622, a majority of 395 against the proposed change. The special election was call ed by a petition containing over 700 names, nearly 100 more than the total vote favoring the change at Tuesday’s poll. In this connection it might be men tioned that after five years’ trial of the commission plan of government at Des Moines, lowa, so much dissatisfaction is found that the question of continuing this system will be up before the voter at the municipal election in March. “Just a Woman’s Way.” A play should entertain and amuse. We all know that. At the same time there should be depth and strength to it. It should instruct along certain lines. If it lacks this element the play ers cannot become sufficiently interest ed in it to do good work—their best work. “Just a Woman’s Way,” which will be played at Royal hall, Tuesday even ing, Jan. 25th, is from the pen of Sid ney W. Pascoe and he has displayed all of the above good qualities in this story and dramatization including a splendid moral. Card of Thanks.

The funeral of Miss Alyce Ebbott took place last Sunday afternoon, con ducted by Rev. R. W. Roberts and Rev. L. A. Parr of Geneseo, 111. Ser vices were held at the home at 12:30, at the Congregational church at 1 o’clock and at Fassett cemetery where the remains were interred. The sermon laid emphasis on the thought of victory, the victory over death which comes through Jesus Christ. While, when Jesus comes we have to endure loss and bereavement, we should not mourn for those for whom death has meant the release of the soul from the bonds of flesh and its entrance into endless life. And those who have accepted the rulership of Christ need have no fear. Death has no sting and the grave no victory. It was felt that this was true in re spect of the deceased. Her life had been surrendered to the Master, she had lived out her day bravely and truly, she had served the church, taught Christ’s little ones, and tried to help in bringing in His kingdom. Many will add their word to the tes timony that hers was not a useless life. She played her part; she did her work. And now she has gone. For ourselves, our own loss and loneliness and pain, we shall mourn. But for her, released from pain, living in the light of the throne, we will not mourn, but will be thankful for the victory she has won through Jesus Christ. Alyce Maud Ebbott was born on Al bion Prairie, June 14, 1882. moved with her pared ts to this city the following year and has made her home here ever since. She graduated from the local high school in June, 1899, and a year later entered Beloit college, but on ac count of sickness was unable to con tinue there. At the age of 18 she join ed the Congregational church in this city and has been an active and faith ful member of the same. She died at her home Dec. 30, 1909, in her 28th year. She leaves to mourn their irrepara ble loss a father, mother, sister and two brothers, besides numerous rela tives and a host of friends. The profusion of beautiful floral of ferings at the funeral by friends and neighbors bore testimony of their sym thies for the passing forever of one with whom they had been so pleasantly associated and knew to be pure and true. Among the many who attended the services were the following relatives from out of town: Mr. and Mrs. Harry Ebbott, Fort Atkinson; Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Uglow, Giles Lein, Thomas Hand ford and Miss Agnes Longley, of Pal myra; Mrs. David W. Whittet and Mr. Joseph Bunting, of Redwood Falls. Minn. MARY ELIZABETH CHAPIN JESSUP. After a year’s illness, which at last turned into consumption, Mary Eliza beth Chapin, wife of E. N. Jessup of Fulton, passed into her home beyond for eternal rest. Miss Mary Chapin was born at Feed ing Hills, Mass., April 2, 1849, and died at her home in Fulton, Wis., Jan. 5, 1910, aged 60 years, 9 months and 3 days. She came to Janesville, Wis., with her parents in 1854 and after about two years’ residence there she removed to Fulton, Wis., where she has thus spent the remainder and the greater portion of her life. She was first married to Jas. Smith by whom she leaves three daughters, Mrs. O. H. Fessenden, Mrs. Orfa Fessenden and Mrs. C. W. Blanchard. In 1879 she married E. N. Jessup. She is survived by Mr. Jessup, her three daughters and her only son, and a great host of inti mate friends who had come to appre ciate so fully her womanly qualities. All the kind ministrations of her friends and loved ones were given freely in the hopes of a prolonging of her earthly stay but the burdens of her flesh were too great and her Father has called her home. Let us joyfully await that home coming a little way ahead for we shall join her once more. The funeral services were held at her late home Saturday afternoon at 1 o’clock, Rev. R. W. Roberts of the Congregational church of Edgerton of ficiating. Interment took place in Ful ton cemetery. DEXTER C. HALL. The remains of Dexter C. Hall were brought here by train from Cedar Rap ids, lowa, Monday for interment in the family lot in Albion cemetery.

His home was in Marion, lowa, and for the past seventeen years has been employed in the bridge building department of the C. M. & St. P.
