MARY’S SCHOOL Sacrament of Confirmation Adminis tered to a Class of £93. The city of Wausau witnessed an unusual celebration Sunday, May 6th, at St. Mary’s church. At the morn ing services, Rt. Rev. James Schwe bbch administered the sacrament of confirmation to a class of two hundred and niDety-three, forty-two of whom were converts. In the afternoon the Rt. Rev. Bishop dedicated the large, beautiful, and sub stantial, new St. Mary’s school. He was assisted by the following clergymen from this city and other localities. Rev. J. M. Owens, Rev. Mortimer, Rev. Rolbiecki, Rev. J. Stromberg, D. D., Rev. W. W. Reding, Very Rev. E. Dei bele, Rev. T. Wojak, Rev. T. Jock, Rev. W. Daniels, Rev. A. Muckerheide, Rev. F. X. Orthen, Rev. F. Forster, Rev. P. Trferweiler, Rev. Minwegen. The morning services were preluded by a canonical reception of the Rt. Rev. Bishop at the entry of the church. Some 320 young people formed ranks in front of the Rectory on Seymour street, and marched to the church, fol lowed by the clergy, amid the peals of the mighty organ accompanying the I ■ *, ■ ■ . % church choir of forty-five voices, chanting the “Ecce Sacerdos,” by Abt. Solemn High Mass was celebrated, the Rt. Rev. Bishop assisting at the throng in rochette. The celebrant of the mass was Rev. P. Trierweiler, Rev. P. Minwegen, deacon, and Rev. T. Jock, sub-deacon. Assistants at the throne were Rev. E. Deibele and Rev. J. Owens. The confirmation sermon was delivered by Rev. P. Minwegen, and after the ad ministration of the sacrament of con firmation, the Rt. Rev. Bishop compli mented the young people on their re .igious instruction, and excellent prep aration for the reception of the sacra ment. He dilated at some length on the spiritual effects of confirmation, assuring the young people of the as sistance of Heaven in the many temp tations and dangers that may beset them in life. After the mid-day services, St. Eliza beth’s society served dinner to about five hundred persons. The dinner had its customary excellence, and all who partook thereof wore smiles and were lavish with encomiums. The afternoon services began at four o’clock. The school children marched from the rectory to the church. There the “Veni Creator” was chanted and the prayers prescribed by the ritual were recited. Thence the clergy pro ceeded to the main entrance of the schoolhouse and the blessing of the school proper began. The Rt. Rev. Bishop was assisted by the clergy, St. Mary’s choir and the school children’s choir. After the blessing the Right. Rev. Bishop, His Honor, the Mayor, S. B. Tfcbey, super intendent, and the clergy occupied seats on the stage of the auditorium. The auditorium and the hallways of the school were one packed mass of humanity.

The membership of the organization is limited to forty members. Anyone desiring to become a member will make application to one of the staff officer*. When the membership is complete there will be eight squads of five members, the fifth man being the corporal, who also operates the ma chine gun. Besides learning how to fire machine guns and fire a pistol, i this company will practice map-mak- j ing, scout duty, first aid. learn the J army wig-wag signal system and be drilled in the gerierat military tactics, j This organization is the first of its | kind in the middle west and its sue- i cess depends largely on the support ol j the people of Wausau. Those who' cannot support the government by the offer of their services, should in a financial way show their patriotism. | This mounted machine gun company is undertaking a big task and all should do their part in making it a success. It will require about SI2OO for a machine gun. amunition. carriage, mountings, etc., this it will be neces sary for the company to have. The members will furnish their own ma chines. gasoline, oil and propose to drill twice a week on Thursday even ings at 7:45, at the armory and on Sunday morning at the fair grounds and hope to be in good state of efficien cy as soon as the company’s services are needed by the country. WENT TO HAZELHIRST A party of young ladies went to ' Hazelhurst this morning, where they j will enjoy a few days’ outing at the i Dessert cottage at Tomahawk lake.! Those in the party were Misses Louise ' Dessert. Blanche Dessert. Nina Kiek busch. Ruth Alexander and Margaret Dunbar. Mrs. J. M. Montgomery of Minneapo- ! lis, accompanied the party. ROTARY MEETING The Rotary club b -Id its semi monthly luncheon at St. John's guild i hall on Monday noon and there was a large attendance. Rotarian A. L.' Kreutzer prerented the club with a vest pocket edition of the “Star-Span gled Banner.” which gift was duly ap preciated. The speaker of the occa sion was Rev. W. D. Bancroft, who gave a very interesting talk on “’Caged Men.” concerning the inmates of pris ons. and the reforms which may be ac complished and the practical relief and employment for discharged and paroled prisoners. Rev. Bancroft is with the Central Howard association, which works in maty states af the union. The associat on is ths best friend to paroled or discharged men from prisons. i Rev. J. B. Hauck introduced the Mayor as the first speaker. Among the many points of the Mayor's address, were: the pride which all Wausau, especially St. Mary's congre gation, took in the newly erected school; the splendid education afford ed to the pupils of this school; the ex cellent training given them to make them useful members of society, to en able them to pursue the goods of this and the next life. S. B. Tobey was then introduced by the Rev. Hauck. He spoke on the ab solute need of a thorough education; for the welfare of home and country and for serving the One Supreme God. Rt. Rev. Joseph Schwebach brought out strongly in his able address the fact that the Catholics were not op posed to the public schools for what they taught. He brought forth that there were three departments in a true educa tion—the physical, intellectual and moral; that a mere physical educa tion makes a man a prize-fighter; a mere intellectual education makes a man a shrewd and cunning business man; a mere moral education makes a man a bigot; but that systematic and well balanced development of all three departments makes a man a complete man. I The audience then sang “America.” j In the church addresses were made ; by Very Rev. E. Deibele and Rev. W. i Reding. The former showed that | Christ instructed to His Church the ! mission to teach and hence that Church j had from times immemorial put every | effort on education; but that a relig j ious basis is necessary for a complete | education, fitting men for the things j temporal and eternal, f Rev. W. Reding spoke on the his j torical aspect of a free education, de j veloping the fact that all public edu j cation was based on religion up to . seventy-five years ago, and that it is J still the case in some countries of ! Europe. In this country religion was banished from the public schools by the government on account of the vast J multitude of different creeds. The Catholic Church, however, still ad hered to the need of religious education. Hence, she has developed her splendid system of parochial schools, the build ings of which have cost over three hundred million, and the maintenance twenty-five millions annually. These amounts are contributed by the Catho lics of the United States. In the evening a large audience was thrilled to the utmost extent by the | drama, “Fabiola,” in five acts, ren dered by the Young People’s Sodality. The actors were all home talent of St. Mary’s. They acted not like amateurs, but like professionals. Special men tion must be made of Miss Gertrude Helling, as “Fabiola;” Miss Muriel Hart, as “Afra;” Miss Gertrude Pop kalla as “Syra;” Miss Loretta Bleclia as “Agnes;” Mr. Le Ron as "Calpuru cus” and Mr. Leo Pleier as “Fulvius.” D. V. Hart directed the play. The duet of Miss Leona Myshka and Miss Viola Strupp was one of the most pleasing numbers of the evening. RECEIVED NOTICE TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS Mayor Marquardt has received no tice from Gov. Philipp, that under the new conscription law just passed by congress, it will be necessary to or der a registration of all male citizens of military age. The governor says that by the direction of the secretary of war, the election machinery of the state will be used for this purpose. “This will necessitate the opening of all election booths the same as on a general election,” says the mayor, and on the days that will be designated in the president’s proclamation, which will state the age of the men to be con scripted. The proclamation will be issed in a few days. A bill is now be fore the legislature relating to the reg istration of those eligible for service in the U. S. army. Mayor Marquardt is making the nec essary preparations so that the regis trations can be made promptly after the proclamation is issued and to give full co-operation. A COMMENDABLE SHOWING The Citizens’ Training Camp of Wausau is now composed of 132 mem bers and has also been made up into battalions. Drilling is going along satisfactorily and enthusiasm is not lacking in this respect. All are work ing shoulder to shoulder and seem to be imbued with the spirit of their forefathers. Under command of Lieut. Carl Behn ke, drill master, the camp was formed into three battalions Sunday morning and marched through some of the principal streets of the city, going through several manoeuvers until they reached the High school campus, where they were put through several military evolutions and more manoeu vers greatly to their liking and enjoy ment and much to the suprise of their friends and other spectators. After one and a half hours’ exercise they marched back to the armory, well sat isfied with their first out of doors ex perience in that line and ready and willing to perfect themselves still fur ther in militarism.

This pleasant event is an annual cus tom of the club and the May banquet marks the close of the year’s work. The club has now adjourned for the summer months to meet again the first Monday evening in October. PREPARING A WOOD SUPPLY As there was such a shortage of wood the past winter and the people were obliged to pay such exorbitant prices in this city, the Mayor saw fit to establish a municipal wood yard and requested all the farmers to bring in their wood, which he would sell at a minimum price. In addition to this he ordered wood from different parts of the state. With this and what the farmers brought to tl*> city, he was able to supply a great number of peo ple who were unable to buy wood at the high prices existing. He has been buying wood and selling it at cost ever since and will continue to do so through the summer months. The May or has ordered a supply of wood for next fall, and hopes to be able to sell some at a price which will satisfy the public.
