After an illness of several weeks,
Charles A. Snover, former state sena
tor, prominent Wisconsin democrat, ex
sheriff, ex-mayor, hotel keeper and
farmer, died at his home, 203 N. Third
St., at 6 o’clock p. m. Monday, April
24, 1916. The end was peaceful. For
almost a week death had been expect
ed at any moment, and for three days
he had been unconscious. Senator
Snover’s last illness dates back to
about one year ago. With a fortitude
that was unusual he performed his
duty, being special agent in inspection
of public institutions for the state.
About two months ago he entered a
sanitarium at Madison where he re
mained for eight days. He then went
to Janesville for an X-ray examination
where he was told that he had an ab
normal growth in his stomach. The
growth soon assumed a cancerous na
ture and this hastened his death.
Otto Holo lost his tent and all his be
longings on Lake Koshkonong Monday

home near Hillside, Saturday night at
midnight, April 22, 1916. She was born

She came to America in 1833 and has
lived in this community ever since.
She was married to Mr. John Christian
son Brenhaug Feb. 2, 1888. This union
was blessed with four children, three
sons, Hartvig, Melvin and Joseph, and
one daughter, Miss Mable. The four
children, one brother, Hans Hanson
near Fort Atkinson, and a sister, Mrs.
J. G. Johnson of Kennwick, Wash.,
survive her.

Aug. Uphoff.
David Dahle and Clerny Perkins,
while driving a well point on the for
mer’s marsh east of town, struck flow

pressure comes from a strata of sand
underlying a bed of blue clay 20 feet
deep. That is the first flowing well in
this vicinity. The find is likely to in
duce others to try it.

The Various Ages.
In the Greek mythology four—the
golden, self sufficient; the silver, self
indulgent: the brazen, warlike, and
the iron, violent; together with the
heroic, nobly aspirant, between the
third and fourth.
In archaeology three—the stone age,
the bronze and the iron.
In history the middle and dark, be
tween the ancient and the modern.
In Fichte five—of instinct, of law,
of rebellion, of rationality, of conform
ity to reason.
In Shakespeare seven infancy,
childhood, boyhood, adolescence, man
hood. age, old age.
Pity the Poor.
“There’s no justice in this world for
a poor man.”
“That’s right Here I’ve got one of
the fastest little cars in this town, and
I don’t dare let it out, because I haven’t
got enough money to pay a fine for
speeding.”—Pittsburgh Press.

The electrification of 440 miles of the
main line of the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St. Paul Railway, between Harlowton,
Mont., and Avery, Idaho, across the
Great Continental Divide, and the dig
ging of the Panama Canal, stand linked
as the greatest engineering achieve
ments of this generation.
The Canal ushers in anew era in
ocean travel—the “Milwaukee” elec
trification heralds anew era in trans
continental railroading, mastering for
ever the stupendous obstacles of the
mountains, carrying traffic over the
massive barriers with ease and with a
pronounced saving in cost; decidedly
improving train operation, practically
eliminating all trouble from cold and
snow; making mountain travel clean
and mountain vistas clear, and by pro
ducing power from mountain water
falls instead of from coal, taking a
definite step to conserve the world’s
resources. The “Milwaukee” is ever
to the fore in increasing travel com
forts and pleasures. The accomplish
ment of the first extensive main line
electrification in the world is but an
other item in the long list of its pio
neering achievements.
On your next trip to the Pacific
North Coast, take the “Olympian” or
“Columbian” and enjoy the travel su
premacy of the “Milwaukee” Road.

Superstitions About Fowls.
Diviners of East Africa perforin
divination by killing a fowl and sprin
kling its blood on or near the thresh
old, “a practice most frequently ob
served when a chief has fallen seri
ously ill.” It is a far cry from Uganda
to the shores of Scotland, but here is
an incident that runs the Uganda cus
tom close enough, surely. In a cer
tain place which does not consider it
self le&s enlightened than similar com
munities of its size a friend was one
day suddenly asked by a woman, a
neighbor (whose son, a young lad, had
fallen down in a fit), to run for a doc
tor. This he promptly did, and, re
turning before the arrival of the doc
tor. was pleased to see the lad had
come to in the interval, and said so to
the mother. “Yes.” she replied, “but
what a pity we hadn’t a live cock to
bury in the garden.” Not only so, but
my friend, on expressing his surprise
to another party, was shown a garden
quite close where a live fowl had been
buried on a precisely similar occasion,
thus testifying to a more general be
lief in the efficacy of such a charm
than could be imagined.—London Tit-
Meant Well, But—
Viscount French of Ypres often tell*
an amusing story about a French re
view that he attended a good many
years ago.
General French, as he then was, at
tended the men’s dinner in camp one
day, and as he puffed on his cigar he
noticed that 300 young Frenchmen had
nothing to smoke whatever.
Accordingly he sent to his tent for
three boxes of Havanas, and these
were quickly distributed among the
troops, a rare treat truly. To show
their gratitude the soldiers without
consulting their sergeants lined up in
two files, marched toward the English
general, and, raising their right hands
to their caps and holding their lighted
cigars in their left hands, they shouted
as with one voice:
“Vive la Russe!”
They had mistaken the uniform.—

Reason For Complaint.
“I keep the best bread,” said a cer

fellow who complained of the inferior
quality of the article he had purchased
of him the day before.
“I do not doubt it.” replied the cus
“Then why do you complain?’’ asked
the baker.
“Because I would suggest that you
sell the best bread and keep the bad.”

ARE you going to get the fruit and
vegetabies out of your garden—or are you
going to let the bugs and worms have half ?
Bug-killing is just as important as 3eed-planting and
cultivation. The commercial orchardist or gardener
knows this and uses insecticide regularly.
The home gardener can do this too, now that
“Corona Dry”
The Universal Insecticide
is sold in small packages for the benefit of the small grower.
No expensive equipment is needed. This most efficient bug
killer and preventive is applied dry—in dust form—without the
use of the sloppy, costly spraying apparatus.
Use “Corona Dry” first before the bugs get a start.
