Kaukauna Times
August 1909

Kaukauna Times, Kaukauna, WI, Aug 11, 1909


At noon yesterday the city of Kaukauna was without fire protection and City Engineer William HYLAND so informed the city officials and he was ordered to shut off the supply pipe of the Chicago & Northwestern Railway company, which is using 30,000 gallons daily. The condition at the present time is unprecedented in the history of the city. Notwithstanding the dire need of utmost economy in every household, one man was found who has always boasted of a nice green lawn, who let his faucet stay open every night to sprinkle his lawn.

Engineer HYLAND reported only two feet of water in the stand pipe where it is expected to be never less than fifty and should be seventy-five. There was not water enough in the reservoir at the pumping station to start the pumps.

The city is having a new well drilled but it will be 30 to 60 days before it will be completed, meantime we pray for no fires.


A miscellaneous shower was held last evening at the home of Mrs. Joseph McCARTY for her sister, Miss Margaret NEWHOUSE, who is to be united in marriage Aug. 18 to Adolph GLANZ, of Madison. Miss NEWHOUSE was the recipient of many beautiful and useful presents in silver, linen, etc., from her girlfriends in Kaukauna. The grounds and home of the McCARTHY's [sic] was beautifully illuminated with Chinese lanterns, hung in festoons.


George VERBOCKEL, the Wisconsin avenue jeweler, was married yesterday to Miss
Katherine JADOULE, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank JADOULE, of Blackwell street, north side. The marriage rite was performed by the Rev. Father I. G. GRUNNEWALD, of Holy Cross church, at 7 o'clock Tuesday morning.

After a short honeymoon Mr. and Mrs. VERBOCKEL will reside on the Island on elm street.
