Carlin, Samuel K. proprietor of the Winegar Recreation Hall at Winegar, Vilas County, was born at Ashland, Wis., Feb. 4, 1893, son of J. B. and Maude (STEPHENS) CARLIN. He was educated in the grade and high schools of Ashland and at Gordon's Business College, and was then for five years employed in clerical work in the office of the "Soo" Railway there. For the following two years he was engaged in a general insurance business, after which he was for two years bookkeeper for the John Schroeder Lumber Co. in their office at Ashland. On May 1, 1922, he left that position and came to Winegar, purchasing his present business here. The property was in a badly run down condition at the time Mr. CARLIN acquired it, and his building it up to its present place as one of the finest recreation halls in northern Wisconsin is a fine tribute to his ability and inudustry. He has an ice cream department and an up-to-date and sanitary soda fountain; he handles a line of tobaccos and cigars, maintains pool and billiard tables, and specializes in bakery goods, keeping a large and complete line which he receives fresh daily. He has also installed recently a new equipment for a first-class barber shop, with all electrical appliances for massaging and hair cutting, and in fact Mr. CARLIN has and conducts one of the best places in the village and caters to the best trade. He also plays a useful part in the community by promoting its baseball interests; he played for some time on the Ashland team in the Northern League, an experience which makes him a fine man for his present position as manager of the Winegar Baseball Club. He takes an active interest in everything that is for the welfare of the community. Mr. CARLIN was married July 31, 1923, to Ann CARRIGAN of Mellan, Wis.
