H. D. Stappenbeck, Edgerton, Wis. Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter Sdgerton, - ■Wisconsin. FRIDAY, JULY 21. 1911. CORRESPONDENCE Milton Junction George Stetzel fell off a milk house at Wilmer Armstrong’s north of Lima Saturday and broke his leg. Dr Zina Gilbert, who graduated this spring from a Milwaukee dental college and who had expected to locate at Omro, Wis, has changed his mind and will locate in Janesville. Mr A D Conkey has commenced to clean up the vacant lot he purchased of A M Hull on Front street and will soon erect a building and go into the meat business. Tooker & Ryder, ditchers from Har vard, 111, began Friday on the drainage ditches in the Lima drainage district. They have nine men and nineteen bosses at work and are camped on E D Coon’s farm. Saturday night while Mr and Mrs Elam Coon were out driving, thieves entered their house on the farm and ransacked things generally. The prop erty stolen consists of two watches, one silver watch and a lady’s gold watch and chain, a diamond ring valued at S3O, one set with a ruby and pearls and one with set missing, sev eral breast pins, one a leaf with an opal, two marked “R M G, ” and other small ones; three certificates of deposit on Milton bank of S4OO, S2OO and sls, and a note for S6OO, two fountain pens and Mrs Coon’s purse containing $1.50 in money. The bank paper is not ne gotiable and will be of no valve to the robbers. Mr Coon notified Sheriff Ran som of the loss and a lookout is being kept for the burglars. Fort AtKlnson. Miss May McMillen left Friday to spend several days with her sister, Mrs C P Touton, at Peru, 111. LitLe Rob ert Touton, who has been visiting here, accompanied her. The Borden Condensed Milk company has announced its intention of estab lishing a large condensory at Palmyra in the near future. This will make five condensing plants in Jefferson county, others being in Jonnson Creek, Water town, Jefferson and Sullivan. Mrs Charles Stein, 504 East street, while temporarily deranged Wednesday morning, took a large dose of paris green with the intention of ending her life. As soon as her act was known. Dr W T Clarke was called and worked over her until a quarter after four when death ended the struggle. Mrs Stein had been in poor health for some time and last year underwent a diffi cult operation. It is said that her mind had been failing for the past two weeks. Lightning struck the depot at Helen ville early Thursday morning and in a few minutes the entire building was in flames and soon burned to the ground. Three freight cars and the Reul ma chine sheds, which were near, were also destroyed and Mr Reul’s total loss is figured at $30,000. The Meek lum ber and flour buildings, which were in great danger, were saved ouly through the hard and faithful labor of the little village, who formed a bucket line and worked hard for several hours. Deerfield A daughter of Mr and Mrs John Braaten dislocated her elbow last Wed nesday while coasting down hill in a little wagon. Leonard Auby last Monday signed up with the Brewers of Milwaukee to play professional ball. The Brewers have been after him for a long time, and made him very tempting offers. The Brewers in turn assigned him to the Madison state league team for further practice. He will have his try-out game the latter part of this week when the Madison team plays against Fond du Lac. Auby’s permanent employ ment will depend on his success in the try-out game. Harry Christoffer, son of Station Agent and Mrs Christoffer at London, has been appointed by the U S govern ment to go to Alaska to study the game conditions there with a view to improv ing the Alaskan game laws. He will be gone on his mission two years. He was authorized to appoint four assis tants, and for one of them he choose Claude Roach of London. Two others he took from Madison. His winter headquarters will be at Fairbanks. Mr Christoffer graduated from the Deer field high school and later from the University of Wisconsin, where he ma jored in biology. Since his graduation at the university he has worked in the fisheries department at Washington. Cambridge P C Onstad purchased the J W Por ter property near the high school build ing, which he expects to occupy this fall. Besides track repairs, evidence of considerable improvement about the depot of the C & L S R R are to be seen this week. Anew platform has been laid on cement walls, and we un derstand the enlargement and general repair of the depot is contemplated in the near future. Miss Ella Jacobson, daughter of Hans Jacobson, living just west of town, died Sunday evening, following an opera tion the Thursday before for appendi citis. She had not been ill previous to the Fourth, when she was taken down suddenly in the evening. Miss Jacob son was 19 years of age and had at tended the local high school. We are glad to note that Miss Esther Stewart is to teach second primary in the public schools here next year. Nels Nelson of Sumner has been engaged as principal at Rockdale. Eva n •villa Mrs C Scofield went to Edgerton on Monday for a few days’ visit with her daughter, Mrs Albert Rader. She was accompanied by her grandson, Honery Hubbard. The remains of Mrs Harriet Potter Dodge were brought here from Kansas last Saturday and taken to her old home in Cooksville for burial. Her son, Ed Potter, accompanied the body. Mrs Dodge was past eighty years of age and was one of the early settlers of Cooksville, but has lived in Kansas for the past 25 years. At the school meeting Monday even ing, Mrs Burr Tolies was elected to succeed Mrs O C Colony, and C J Pear sall was chosen to succeed M J Fisher as members of the board of education. 0 S Shepard was elected clerk, but de clined to serve, when V/ E Green was re-elected. Eleven thousand dollars was levied to meet current expenses, to provide for new sidewalks and to make sewer connections. E J Jones, who has been conducting an electrical store in the Wood build ing on Main street for the past few months, disappeared just previous to the Fourth and his whereabouts are unknown. Shortly after his departure ure two checks, drawn on the Bank of Evansville, one for $125 and the other for SSO, boldly presented themselves before the astonished eyes of the bank officials for recognition. But the send er of these commercial missives, rely ing too much on the magnanimity of business and too little on his own finan cial status, failed to draw the substan tial prize set forth in the respective margins in his letters of (dis) credit. It is alleged the checks were cashed in Janesville by friends of Mr Jones. Ru mors are plentiful that Mr Jones bor rowed a number of sums under SIOO from sympathizing friends in this city, and that he also made numerous pur chases here which he graciously re quested the merchants to “charge.” Stoughton Miss Mamie Gunderson, who has been spending a month’s vacation here and in Edgerton, returned Monday morning to Chicago to resume her duties as as sistant superintendent of the Augus tana hospital. Morgan D Wise writes from Rock ford, 111, that the condition of his fath er, Geo Wise, remains unchanged, Mr Wise in no way having improved from the stroke of apoplexy that he suffered at bis cottage at Kegonsa four woeks ago. Edvard Hanson of Hanerville, a neighborhood in the town of Dunkirk, was badly hurt in the hand Friday af ternoon while reaping grain. The ma chine failed to work properly, so Mr Hanson walked along and reached over to pull out some straws, when the hand caught, was stitched through the mid dle by the big needle and the next move by the binder was to to unfasten and throw it off, which resulted in the hand being split open from the center outwards. Dr Noer was summoned to attend him. The wound will be a long time in healing. According to the school census re cently completed by E W Curtis, there are in this city nearly a hundred chil dren of school age less this year than last, while that portion of the school district lying in Dunkirk shows an in crease from 56 to 91, making a net loss in the district of 59. While this is not the first time that a school census has shown a falling off in the school popu lation, the decrease in the city is so marked and in such striking contrast the appreciable increase in the enroll ment that took place during the past school year that it may be deemed ad visable to take a recount.

Notwithstanding the fact that he now holds the highest judicial office in the world Chief Justice White continues his walks on Pennsylvania avenue, goes to his physical trainer three times a -week and puts on no lugs whatever. Not long ago a friend found him standing in the lobby of a Washington hotel building, a letter in his hand. He then went up and said to the clerk, “I would like to engage a room here for a lady from Louisiana, a rela tive of mine.” “Nothin’ doin’,” said the clerk. “What do I understand you to say?” inquired the chief justice. “Not a room in the house vacant for that week,” snapped the clerk. The chief justice blinked his eyes, said “Thank you” politely and w T ent out. The friend who had spoken to the chief justice remained in the hotel lob “NOTHIN’ DOIN’,” SAID THB CLEKK. by. When there w r as a chance he went to the desk and said to the clerk, “Do you know who that was you just turned down for a room?” “No. Who was it?” “The chief justice of the United States.” “Great Scott!” exclaimed the clerk. “Don’t tell the boss.” Somebody did tell the boss, however, and next morn ing the chief justice was waited on by a representative of the hotel, who told him he could’ have a room, a suit or a floor for the lady from Louisiana and if he would kindly indicate what he desired they would have the rooms sent up to him for inspection.—Saturday Evening Post. ROOSEVELTAND THE SCHOOLMASTER Story That Was Not Relished by the Former President. “I never saw Mr. Roosevelt riled but once,” said a New York banker. “It was over a twin story. Mr. Roosevelt, you know, regards twins, triplets and even quadruplets as great and unmix ed blessings, and he won’t let any one poke fun at them. “A schoolmaster told the twin story in the smoking room of a hotel out west without intending any offense to Mr. Roosevelt. “He said that a pupil of his turned up at school one morning nearly an hour late. “ ‘Tommy,’ the schoolmaster de manded, ‘what is the meaning of this?’ “ ‘We got company at our house,’ Tommy replied. “ ‘What?’ said the schoolmaster. “ ‘Two’s company, ain't it?’ said Tommy. ‘Well, It’s two little sisters. They come early this mornin’ with Dr. Smith, and pop looks awful worried.’ ” The banker smiled and shook his head. “But you should have heard,” he said, “the lecture that Mr. Roosevelt read that schoolmaster on race sui cide.” Strong Enough to Toil. The common idea of an artist is a slight, pale cheeked little person with a flowing tie and 'in anaemic disposi tion. Herman Dudley Murphy, the Boston artist, stands six feet and some Inches high. His shoulders are broad and his muscles hard from continued exercise in his canoe and yacht. A woman entered his studio the other day and asked to see Mr. Murphy. “That’s him standing over there,” the attendant said. The woman looked where Mr. Mur phy stood, towering like an ancient Viking, and gasped. “Why,” she whispered in surprise to the clerk, “he’s big enough to work, Isn’t he?”—Boston Traveler. Good Impulses. A mere good impulse that does not result in good works is rather worse than useless, for if not carried out in deed it has a reaction instead of an action as its outcome. Settled.
