Harry A. Beurhaus and Gustav E. Gloger have purchased the general merchandise stock of William A. Beurhaus at 200 Main Street, and have already taken charge of the business.  This is one of the best stands in the city, and Mr. Beurhaus has always enjoyed an excellent trade there.  His successors are two of Watertown's best-known young businessmen, and their well known honorable manner of dealing with the trading public bespeaks for them success in their business.  Just now they are offering great bargains to reduce their present stock, and in a short time they will have a large stock of all the latest in fall goods.  Success to the new firm.



02 19     William A. Beurhaus very hospitably entertained the directors and officers of the Merchants National Bank and representatives of the Wisconsin National Bank and Bank of Watertown last Monday evening at his home in honor of his birthday anniversary.  A pleasing feature of the evening's entertainment was the surprise given the gentlemen present when at about 10 o'clock their wives entered in a body to join in the festivities.  Mrs. Beurhaus had arranged this feature of Mr. Beurhaus' anniversary celebration unknown to him.  All present had a thorough good time, Mr. Bearhaus and his amiable wife proving most excellent entertainers.  It was Mr. Beurhaus' 60th birthday anniversary.    WG
