--End of Suffering Comes Tuesday Night. Funeral Friday.

Some days ago announcement was made of the serious illness of Peter Ule at Grand Rapids, but knowing as his friends did that he could not long survive the ravages of cancer, they were surprised to learn of his death at 10:30 Tuesday evening. All had hoped that his life might be prolonged and that they might again greet him on the streets of Stevens Point. Mr. Ule was one of the older residents of the county and city and was held in the highest esteem by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance. Although of a somewhat retiring disposition he was one who always met his friends with a kind word and hearty hand shake and was pleased to see them. He had not made this city his home for several years, but those who knew him feel that another of Stevens Point's best citizens has gone to his reward.

Peter Ule was born in Nassau, Frankfort on the Main, Germany, on October 21, 1825. When a young man he came to this country and located in Belleville, Ill., where he became a contracting mason. After his marriage to Miss Mary Haupt at Belleville, he removed to Salisbury, Mo., where the family resided until 1877, when they came to Portage county and located on a farm in the town of Linwood. Mr. Ule followed his trade as a mason and bricklayer, while his sons operated the farm.

They lived there for six years, when they removed to this city where he made his home up to ten years ago, when soon after the death of Mrs. Ule, he went to Grand Rapids to live at the home of his son, Louis. He had been a member of the Masonic bodies for the past fifty years and was also a member of the International Order of Odd Fellows.

Mr. Ule leaves to mourn his death four sons and two daughters. George of Three Lakes, Wis.; Louis, Grand Rapids; W.E. of this city; and John, who is now in New Mexico; Mrs. Fannie Klaus, Salisbury, Mo.: Mrs. Emma Remus, Brainerd, Minn.

The youngest son, John, who is in the west on account of his health, was unable to be at the bedside of his father when the final summons came.

The funeral services will be help under the direction of the Masonic order at Grand Rapids, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock interment being made in the cemetery at that place in a lot which he had, previous to his death, purchased and already had a head stone placed to mark his last resting place.
