JUBILEE CELEBRATION. The St. Paul’s church society of this city was organized Jan. 4th, 1863, with 20 charter members and the 40tb anni versary of its founding was duly cele brated in this city Sund-ty, by services forenoon, afternoon aud evening. It was also the fifteenth anniversary of the present pastor’s eomiug to Wausau and taking charge of the church, and this also was duly celebrated on Satur day evening. Some time after the founding of the society a small church was built at what is now the corner of Fifth and Washing ton .streets. That locality was then practically a forest, and the members on Sundays wended their way to ser vices by paths through the woods. As the town grew larger that part of the city was cleared and settled, and streets laid out. and the congregation grew in numbers until, in 1886, it was found necessary to build the large new church which now adorns the site of the old one, and which in size and appoint ments compares favorably with any in the city. Since the organization of the society the following pastors have guided the flock : Rev. Waldman, 1863. “ Loeffler, 1863-4. “ Leupp, 18(54 5. “ Albert, J.Siia 9. “ Kern, 1569-72. % “ Reiueeke, 1872-81. “ Linder, 1882. “ Kern, 18S2 5. “ C. Sehaer, 1885-8. “ F. Sehaer, 1888— There was a surprise planned for the pastor Saturday evening. He was in vited out to supper, and while seated in the home of his guest the ringing of the church bells was brought to his ears He was iuduced to go to the church to find out the cause, and when he ar rived there, found the edifice filled to overflowing with his . congregation awaiting to receive him. The visiting ministers, the ladies’ sewing society aud members of the congregation gen erally had generously made |donatious, and a haudsome writiugdesk and office chair and a neat sum of money were presented to Mr. Sehaer. The sur prise on his part was complete, and had been so carefully plauued that had not the least intimation of it. Sunday morning services were held, conducted by Rev. Albert, of Appleton, a former pastor. The visiting minis ters also assisted in the afternoon and evening service, a sermon being preached in the afternoon by Rev. Waldman, of St. Cloud, Minn., the first pastor of the church. The evening ser vice consisted of songs and short talks by different ones. John Ringle gave an outline of the founding of St. Paul’s society, and a history of the church since its organization. On Monday evening there was a banquet held at Aiiuury hall, the attendance tilling the place to overflowing. Music and speak ing enlivened those present, and a spirit of good cheer pervaded the scene. Al together the celeb-ations held are ones long to be remembered, aud eclipsed anything of like nature yet held since the church was organized. DEATH OF MRS. OSSWALD. Saturday morning, at about 3 o’clock, Mrs. Elizabeth Osswald, widow of the' late Christian Osswald, died at her home. 617 Scott street, after a long illness. Mrs. Osswald has been feeling unwell for a number of years and since last August there have been several times when her life was despaired of and her children summoued to her bed side. For several days previous to her death it was apparent that it was only a question of a short time when death would relieve her sufferings, and her children watched over her constantly and at the time above stated the sum mons came and the thread of life was severed. Her sickness was primarily attributed to general infirmities, though she appeared to have a reserve foree of vitality. Mrs Osswald’s maiden name was Elizabeth Dressel, and she was born in the province of Baden, Germany, Qet -19, 1840. With her parents she emi grated to America in 1856, settling in Milwaukee. Here, four years later, she met and was united in marriage to Christian Osswald. In 1563 they moved to Wausau where, in 1871, Mr. Osswald engaged in the bakery business which he followed up to a few years prior to his death, April 10, 1901. Seven chil dren were born to them, of which the following are now residents of this city: John F., George A., Henry, Emma and Alexander. Two daughters, Mrs. H Z Zentuer and Mrs. John Engfer, are non-residents of the city, but were sum moned at her death. The former lives in Oshkosh, the latter in Milwaukee Mrs. Osswald was a plain, retiring woman, but notwithstanding her friends were legion. She was a most excellent lady, and when the distress of a neigh bor was apparent she did what she could to alleviate such. Of late years she had, through illness, been forced to remain indoors nearly all the time, but bore up her sufferings with fortitude. She was always of a kindly and cheer ful disposition, aud imbued with a true Christian spirit, and will be sadly missed in the community especially among the old settlers. The funeral was held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home, Rev. F. Werhahn, pas tor of St. Stephen's church, of which deceased was a devoted member when in life, officiating, s.nd was largely attended. TO THE LADIES OF WAUSAU.

The aS.-dst ancc of the most expert men of medi cine was enlisted in the work, but the hope held out was very slight. Last winter his parents look him South hop ing that the results would prove bene ficial, and arrangements had been m ,and. to go there again the balance of this winter and the start was to have been made next week. On Saturday afternoon he was taken very seriously ill, and the family physician pronounced it the ending of the great struggle. It was a heroic fight and a strong constitution sept the the little soul with us much iongei than if conditions had beeu otherwise. Andrew Laurence Kreutzer was born on the 2d day of June, 1899, aud his age was three years, eight months and seveu days.

In view of the circulation of certain criticisms from the pen of Mark Twain, Mary B iker G. Eddy makes the follow ing statement: ‘ It is a fact well understood that I begged the students who first gave me the endearing appellative “mother’’not to name me thus. But without my con sent that word spread like wildfire. 1 still must think the name is not applica ble to me. I stand in rela'ion to this century as a Christian discoverer, found er and leader. I regard self deification as blasphemous; I may be more loved, but I am less lauded, pampered, pro vided for and cheered than others before me—and wherefore? Because Christian Science is not yet popular, and I refuse adulation. “My first visit to the mother church after it v\as built trtid dedicated pleased me, and the situation was satisfactory. The dear members wanted to greet me with escort and the ringing of belis, but I declined and went alone in my car riage to the church, entered it and knelt iu thanks upon the steps of its altar There the f<respleudor of the beginning of truth fell mysteriosly upon my spirit. I beleive in one Christ, teach one Christ, know of but one Christ. I believe iu but one incarnation, one Mother Mary, and know that I am not that one, and never claimed to be. It suffices me to learn the science of the scriptures relative to the subject. ■ “Christian Scientists have no quarrel with Protestants, Catholics or any other sect. They need to be understood as fol lowing the divine principle—God, love— and uot imagined to be unscientific worshipers of .a human being. “In the aforesaid article, of which I havA seen only extracts, Mark Twain’s wit was not wasted in certain directions. Christian Science eschews divine rights iu human beitigs. If the individual governed human consciousness my statement of Christian Science would be disproved, but to understand the spirit ual idea is essential to demonstrate and its monotheism —one God, one Christ, no idolatry, no human propaganda. Jesus taught and proved that what feeds afew feeds all. His life work subordinated the material to the spiritual, and He left this legacy of truth to mankind, llis metaphysics is not the sport of philoso phy, religion or science, rather is it the pith aud finale of the them all. “I have not the inspiration or aspira tion to be a first or second virgin nfotht r —her duplicate, antecedent er subse quent. What lam remains to be; proved by the good I do. We need much humility, wisdom and love to perform the functions of foreshadowing and foretasting heaven within us. This story is molten in the fnrnr.ee of afflic tion. GOING INTO BUSINESS.

The Stevens Point Normal school basket ball team went down in defeat Friday night before the Y. M. V A. team in this city. F. Radke for the locals scored two points at the outset, which put ginger into both teams and from then ou it was a fiercely contested game. At thefend of the first half each side had scored 12 points and honors were. even. After a rest of ten minutes the teams started in with renewed vigor and it was hard to tell which would win for sometimes Wausau was ahead and again Stevens Point would lead. To wards the end of the game the score was Wau>au, 26; Stevens Point, 24 and with a few seconds to play one of the Stevens Point men secured the ball and with the aid of his team, was in the act of throwing a basket and tying the score. He made the throw but was a little late in doing it, for before the ball left his bauds timy was up and the whistle blew, and his basket did not count. The following is the score : WAUSAU. Baskets. Points. Radke 1 2 * 2 Wilson Floyd 1 2 •Sexmith.. 4 8 Goetsch !5 TO •One throw—2 points. 24 NORMALS. Baskets. Points.
