The health and beauty of the city go
hand in hand. It is therefore coming
to be the custom in the cities of Amer
ica to make a special effort to keep all
premises in a clean and attractive con
dition. During the long winter months
much rubbish and dirt are bound to ac
cumulate which must be taken care of
when the days of spring remove the
snow and uncover the accumulations of
the cold season.
The people of Edgerton, desiring to
be in the fore rank of progress, should
take occasion at this season of the year
to clean up and dress up their prem
ises. The city council and Chamber of
Commerce have recognized the need of
going about this matter in a systematic
manner, and request that the week of
April sth to 13th be designated as
“Spring Dress Up Week” for Edger
Now, therefore, we, J. J. Leary,
Mayor of the City, and W. F. Mabbett,
President of the Chamber of Com
merce, 'do hereby designate the week
of April sth to 13th as “Spring Dress
Up Week” and respectfully call upon
every citizen to observe it by doing
everything that he, or she, can to
make their homes and the streets and
the entire city as clean and orderly as

Mrs. William Barber, nee Emma May
Jenkins, was born in Sumner, Jefferson
county, Wis., July 7, 1874, and died
March 29, 1919. On March 28, 1900,
she became the wife of William Bar
ber of Albion Prairie. Over 20 years
ago ,she became a member of the Bap
tist church in Sumner and has ever
since been known as an earnest Chris
tian, ready for every good word and
work, and of her it can be truthfully
said, “The heart of her husband safely
trusted in her, she did him good and
not evil, all the days of her life.” As
a worker in the Ladies Aid Society, a
singer in the choir, one who looked
well to the ways of her household and
never ate the bread of idleness, her
price is far above rubies. Gentle, un
assuming, unselfish, her life spent in
working and caring for her loved ones,
of her it can well be said, “She hath
done what she could/”
The sympathy of the entire commun
ity goes out to the bereaved husband
and family in their affliction.
The funeral services, conducted by
her pastor, W. Hooton, were held in
the Albion Prairie M. E. church and
she was laid tenderly to rest in the Al
bion Prairie cemetery in sure and
blessed hope of a glorious resurrection.

Executive Mansion Is Historic House.
The governor's residence at Madison
was built over sixty years ago, and
during its first quarter century was
under private ownership. Shortly be
fore the civil war the house was pur
chased from its builder by General Geo.
P. Delaplaine. He had been secretary
to three governors of Wisconsin, and
during the war was inspector general
of state troops. His home thus became
the resort of many army officers on
duty at Madison. In 1866 Delaplaine
sold the house to a wealthy Eau Claire
lumberman named Thorpe, who had
been elected to the state senate. His
daughter, Sara, married Ole Bull, the
famous Norwegian musician, and thus
the place became Bull’s home and the
scene of much hospitality. - After the
great musician’s death Jn 1880 the
house stood empty for some months.
In 1882 General “Jerry" Rusk bought
it, lived in it during his term as gov
ernor, and in 1886 sold it to the state
for a permanent executive mansion.
