CORRESPONDENCE
MILTON JUNCTION
Mrs. W. H. Weaver, who has been
sick for some time, died at her home in
Milton Wednesday evening at 6 o’clock.
The entire community was saddened
and shocked when they received the
sad news of the death of Miss Izetta
Paige, formerly of this place, now of
Janesville. Izetta May Paige was born
in the town of Fulton, Feb. 2, 1897, and
passed away at the home of her moth
er, Mrs. G. T. Richards, at 22 South
Jackson street, Janesville, Wis., at the
age of 22 years and 4 months. She had
been sick for a short time with tonsil
itis, but it was not thought serious un
til Monday morning, when she was
taken suddenly worse and died in a
short time of heart failure.
Mrs. F. J. Cook and Gottfried Ummel
were married at the court house in
Janesville, Tuesday. They left imme
diately for Milwaukee on their honey
moon trip, after which they will re
turn to Milton Junction to make their
home. Mr. Ummel during the past
year purchased the Milton Junction
barber shop and is making a fine suc
cess of the business. His bride is own
er and proprietor of the St. Paul hotel
and since the Cooks took possession of
the hostelry the place has gained the
reputation of offering a clean and sat
isfactory service to the public.
Lucinda E. Cottrell was born at Al
mond, Allegany county, N. Y., Sept.
5, 1846. She was the eldest daughter
of Thomas and Elizabeth McHenry
Cottrell. When about the age of six
years, soon after the death of her
mother, she with her father and young
er brother, Ormanzo, moved to Utica,
Wis. Early in life she was baptized
by Rev. A. B. Prentice and joined the
Utica S. D. B. church. On March 19,
1868, she was married to Henry F.
Crandall at Milton Junction, Wis.,
where they made their home for sev
eral years. In March, 1900, they moved
to Milton, Wis., where they resided up
to the time of her death, June 5, 1919.
The funeral services were conducted
by Rev. Geo. W. Burdick, assisted by'
Pastor Henry N. Jordan. Remarks
were suggested by the last part of the
fourth chapter of Ist Thessalonians,
principally the last verse. The pall
bearers were her sons, William, Harry
and Fred Crandall, her son-in-law,
Floyd Coon, her grandson, Rex Hurley,
and Loyal Hull. She was tenderly laid
to rest in the Milton Junction cemetery
amid a profusion of flowers, to await
the coming of her Savior.
EVANSVILLE
The annual Evansville picnic will be
held at the farm of Mr. Frank Van
Patten, near Chetek, July 4. These
reunions of old friends have been very
pleasant in times past.
The Pioneer drug store, one of the
oldest and strongest business concerns
of Evansville, is now under the man
agement of Mr. Bruce Ford of Beloit,
who assumed control last Monday.
Louis Kleinsmith, born Dec. 13, 1897,
died at St. Mary’s hospital, Madison,
on June 6, and was buried from the
home of J. B Johnson, South Madison
street. Mr. Kleinsmith leaves a widow
and two young children. He was a son
of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Kleinsmith of
Magnolia.
Last Thursday Mrs. C. J. Miller of
Cooksville observed the 86th anniver
sary of her birth. The happy event
was joyfully observed by about 64 chil
dren, grandchildren and great-grand
children. Numerous friends and neigh
bors called to greet the celebrant and
to wish her many happy returns of the
day.
Arthur Stiff left Tuesday for Mason
City, lowa, where he was married to
Miss Ethel Schellinger. The newly
weds returned to Evansville the fore
part of the week and will make their
home with the groom’s mother, Mrs.
Barbara Stiff.

Refreshments were served during the

gerton as one of the Fourth of July at
tractions, according to announcement
made by Secretary H. C. Larson of the

Old-Time Skating Clubs.
As early ns 1742 seating clubs were
formed in Scotland. The first Amer
ican club was established in Philadel
phia in 1849, and quickly attained the
prominence it still holds for artistic
performance. Due to the efforts of
this club the skate came into its own,
for in 1850 Philadelphia brought to
bear the skill of the surgical instru
ment maker to produce the modern
steel hlade and foot plate.
The Boston arena —until its destruc
tion by fire time ago—held first
place among the world’s rinks as pos
sessing the largest indoor skating area
in the world. This record has now
probably passed to Prince’s Skating
club in London. The building itself
is as solid and enduring as most Brit
ish institutions, and the walls in the
rink proper are adorned with splendid
friezes of winter scenes.
Rare Forethought.
“Yus, mum/* said Meandering Mar
madtike, “I were a very precocious
child, mum. Why, would yer bulieve
it, I began to smoke when I were only
six years old.”
“Why, you degenerate brute!” ex
claimed the horrified old lady. “Why
did you do that?”
“Well, yer see, mum, by the time I
were old enough to shave I ’ad saved
up enough coupons for a razor.”
Remarkable Women Rulers.
Remarkable in many ways was Eliz
abeth Petrovna, empress of Russia,
and daughter of Peter the Great. She
died 157 years ago, after a reign of 20
years. While history knows her chief
ly for her immorality, she left behind
her monuments to her better nature,
the University of Moscow and the
Academy of Fine Arts in Petrograd.
Empress Elizabeth’s mother was the
Empress Catherine, who had been the
wife of a Swedish dragoon, and be
came the mistress of several men be
fore Peter the Great married her.
Her daughter, Elizabeth Petrovna,
when she ruled Russia, once became
so mortified by one of the jests of
Frederick the Great that she made
war on the witty Prussian king, and
until her death Russia was one of his
most dangerous enemies.
Ant's Sweet Tooth.
One of the greatest pests that haunt
our orange groves is the Argentine
ant, and yet it never goes near the
trees. Every bit of the damage it
does indirectly. It seems that it has
a very sweet tooth and is abnormally
fond of a honey dew that is secreted
by certain mealy bugs and scales that
are most injurious, and it will go to
any lengths to protect them from be
ing destroyed or harmed in any way.
In Louisiana they have discovered
a way of trapping these ants. They
construct nests and when they all
congregate there, as they will in rainy
weather, they can destroy them.
In California they poison tlftm with
poison syrup. When they ate once
gone it is easy enough to deal with
their friends.

Water Protects Coal.
An interesting result of recent ex
periments with coal is the demonstra
tion of the benefits of submerging the
mineral in water. Coal deteriorate*
in the air, and there is the danger ol
spontaneous combustion, while when
submerged not only was the fire dan
ger eliminated, but scarcely any de
terioration was shown. Experiment
ally, coal kept in the air showed from
2 to 10 per cent of loss in Dine months,
while when submerged there was
scarcely any loss at all.
Booze Is not a Good Cure
(From the Ames lowa Intelligencer.)
When a man comes to you all doubled
up with pain and declares he will die in
your presence unless you procure him a
drink of whiskey, send him to a doctor
or else give him a dose of Chamber
lain’s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy.
There is a mistaken notion among a
whole lot of people that booze is the
beet remedy for colic and stomach ache

Some Edgerton People Have Learn
ed That Neglect is Dangerous.
The slightest symptom of kidney
trouble is far too serious to be over
looked. It’s the small, neglected trou
bles that so often lead to serious kid
ney ailments. That pain in the “small”
of your back; that urinary irregular
ity; those headaches and dizzy spells;
that weak, weary, worn-out feeling,
may be nature’s warning of kidney
weakness. Why risk your life by neg
lecting these symptoms? Reach the
cause of the trouble while there is yet
time—begin treating your kidneys at
once with a tried and proven kidney
remedy. No need to experiment
Doan’s Kidney Pills have been success
fully used in thousands of cases of kid
ney trouble for over 50 years. Doan’s
Kidney Pills are used and recommend
ed throughout the civilized world. Con
vincing testimony follows:
Mrs. Mary Reinel, 514 Third Street,
Jefferson, Wis., says: “It has been
all of four years since I have suffered
from kidney trouble. At that time I
had a dull pain in my back and sharp
pains through it. My head ached and I
had spells of dizziness. I used two
boxes of Doan’s Kidney Pills and they
gave me fine relief.’’
Price 60c, at all dealers. Don’t sim
ply ask for a kidney remedy—get
Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that
Mrs. Reinel had. Foster-Milburn Cos.,

Mr Wisler Cured of Indigestion
“Some time in 1909 when I had an
attack of indigestion and everything
looked gloomy to me, I received a free
sample of Chamberlain’s Tablets by
mail. I gave them a trial and they
were such a help to me that I bought a
package, and I can truthfully say that
I have not had a similar attack since,”
