AUGUST C. NETZEL, who is doing a prosperous business as manufacturer of cigars, with factory at No. 221 Third street, Wausau, Wis., has been engaged in his present business in this city since 1907, but has been a resident since 1902. He was born in the village of Caroline, in Shawano County, Wis., February 6, 1882 and is a son of William and Olrieka (Kruger) Netzel, the former of whom is a substantial citizen and retired farmer in Caroline, Shawano County.
August C.

In 1907 he, in partnership with Gustav Krueger, established a cigar manufacturing business at No. 506 First Street, removal being made to the present location in October, 1911. Since January 1, 1912, Mr. Netzel has been the sole proprietor. He does an extensive business, keeping from six to eight employees, and his specialties are the Great American, the distinguishing mark of which is a portrait of George Washington, and the Triangle, the former retailing at ten and the latter at five cents. Both are in great demand all over central Wisconsin.
Mr. Netzel married Miss Emma Bartels, a daughter of Jacob Bartels, a former builder and contractor at Wausau, and they have two children, Evelyn and Anita. Mr. Netzel is identified fraternally with the order of Eagles. He is a musician of recognized talent, his favorite instruments being the violin and clarinet, and he has played with the C. S.
