Schlack, David an active business man of Eagle River, Vilas County, proprietor of an ideal ice cream and confectionary resort, was born in Germany, June 1, 1873. He was educated in his native land and came to America in 1900, staying for about four months in New York City. In July the same year he came to Eagle River, Wis., entering the employ of the C. & N. W. Railway for which corporation he worked three years. Then for five years he was engaged in the saloon business at Conover, at the end of that time extablishing a similar place in Eagle River in the building in which he is now located. In 1916 Mr. SCHLACK converted his place into a first class ice cream and confectionary resort. He has greatly improved it and its fittings include one of the finest soda fountains in the city. He also handles cigars, tobacco and smokers' supplies and carries a line of local souvenirs to supply the tourist trade. It was in 1907 that he bought his present building-a one-story, brick-veneer structure 21x62 feet, with full basement, located in Railroad Street. He also owns one of the nicest residences on Wall Street. Mr. SCHLACK was married Dec. 14, 1903, to Mary SAILER, and he and his wife are the parents of four children: Maion, born Dec. 1, 1904; Alois, born July 26, 1906, and Agnes, born Dec. 12, 1907. The two elder children are attending the high school and youngest the graded school. Mr. SCHLACK was reared in the Lutheran faith, while Mrs. SCHLACK is a Catholic.
