The sad nows as it spread throughout the city was a great shock to our citizens, generally, as it was riot known that she was seriously ill, and only by a few that she was confined to her home. Mrs. Baumann had not been in robust health for several years and three weeks ago came down with a severe attack of the grippe, which resulted in several strokes of paralysis on Wednesday and Thursday, affecting the orain and was tlie immediate cause of her death. A life of fifty years in Wausau had made Mrs. Baumann’s name familiar to every one and. she was beloved and honored by a, very large circle of friends and her sudden death has caused inexpressible sorrow. Well the writer remembers when she came to Wausau with her husband in 1864. They occupied apartments in the old building which occupied the present site of tiie Baumann hardware store. On the first floor was the hardware store, and the upper story was divid ed, t ie rear into a flat where they resided and the front rooms were oc cupied by the Central printing office, and nothing was too arduous for us apprentices to do for Mrs. Baumann. Down to the threshold of eternity her life 1 as been characterized by love of home; by her proverbial cheerfulness and disposition to meet everything with Christian fortitude: imparting to those about her, courage in times of trouble and at all times adding to their happiness by word and deed and dispensing charity in her own sweet way. Mrs. Emma Lauterman Baumann was born in Oberweisbach, Thueren gen, Germany, on the 10th day of June 1841, and her age was 7i years and 10 months at the time of her death. She lived and was educated in her native country and she came to tl e United States in 1804, going directly to Milwaukee, and in which city, on the 19th of July, the same year, she was joined in marriage to Richard Baumann, whom she had long known in the old country. A month later they came to Wausau and this has been their home ever since. She was an ardent member of St. Paul’s Evangelical church and the Fratenverein of that society. She is survived by her husband and two daughters. Mrs. Anna Dobrinz and Mrs. 11. J. Seim, both of this city, and one brother and one sister in Germany. The funeral services took place from the lome at 1:30 o'clock p. m. and from the church at 2 o’clock, the Rev. E. C. Grauer, pastor, officiating. A profusion of beautiful flowers were siler.t expressions of the esteem in which deceased was held in the com munity. A large number of old friends and neighbors were at the services and at the interment in Pine Grove cemetery. The following acted as pal! bearers: Messrs:. E. C. Zimmer man, Gustav Mueller, Jacob Gens mann, Carl Lotz, John Kiefer and John Ringle. T le following from out of the city were in attendance at the funeral: Mr. and Mrs. Louis Baumann, the former a brother of Mr. Baumann: Mrs. F. Fritze, a sister of deceased, and two daughters and two grandchild ren Mrs. Herman Jmms and Mrs. Loi is Schmidt, nieces of Mr. Bau mann. all of Milwaukee: Hugo Voigt. Chicago, and Louis Voigt, Hurley, nephews; Mrs. Wm. Seim, Carl Wein kauf and daughter and Mrs. Chas. Rifleman, of Edgar. THE COUNTY BOARD.

The show' promises to be one of the best home talent affairs ever pulled off in this city. The feature of the evening will of course be the big chorus of about 75 voices which w ill help the soloist on the choruses to some of the best of popular music. The songs are all catchy and full of life. The soloists are all well known Wausau boys and have all appeared before in perform ances of this kind. That they will make a hit goes without saying. There will be no dead moments be tween the songs, you can just bet our best Sunday hat on that. The fun niest of funny end- nen, with the cleverest of clever jokes, are guaran teed to keep anyone from going to sleep or from even having any desire to sleep. Before the minstrels proper there are four very clever and inter esting acts. The curtain raiser will set a pace that will be hard to follow. Wausau people will be given a rare treat in this first act which is a w hole show in itself. The second act is a “Black and White Sketch” by two of the best of local comedians. The sketch is full of clever local hits and jokes of every kind. It also includes some classy dancing and songs. The third act is a male quartet in their own novel stunt. The fourth act is an operetta with six sailor lads who have been shipwrecked upon a lonely desert island, where they are found by a sea pirate, Jigamaree, who at tempts to make them his prisoners. They, however, escape, and he alone is left upon the island. The play is full of beautiful solos and choruses and is sure to be one of the big hits of the evening.
