OTTO KICKBUSCH, merchant, Wausau, came to America in 1857, and learned the mercantile business in his fatherís store. In 1872 he engaged in business with his father, August Kickbusch, dealing in dry goods, gentsí furnishing goods, clothing, boots and shoes. He was married, March 15, 1874, to Emma Schroeder, who was born in Prussia, and is a daughter of Charles Schroeder, deceased. They have one daughter, Stella M., born in March, 1879. Outside of his mercantile business, Mr. Kickbusch has given much of his attention to trotting stock of the Blue Bull family. He has brought many good horses to Wisconsin (more than any other man in the State) eight that have beaten 2:40 time, two of whom have beaten 2.25. He owns one of the best trotters in the State; confines himself to the Blue Bull stock. He is secretary and treasurer of the Wausau Driving Club; he laid out and built the track, constructed the stables, etc. Mr. K. ranks among the most reliable horsemen of the West; being a business man of sagacity and honor, his judgment can be relied on.
