Mrs. Nellie Mann pastor of the U. U. Church afc has accepted a call to the pastorate of St. Paul's Universalist Church at La- and will soon remove to that Mrs. Opdale was born in New Lis- bon in i860. Within a year after graduating from the public schools of Racine she obtained a position as which she held until her mar- riage four years latter to Julius H. an attorney of Eau Claire. Her husband died in and shortly afterward the widow went on the lec- ture platform on behalf of woman suffrage. While engaged in this work she appeared before the legislature commanding close attention on both occasions. Meantime she had been licensed to preach by the Univer- salist making her first pulpit appearance at Mukwon'ago in 1894. Next year she was called to a pastorate remaining at that place'until she accepted the charge at La Crosse. Her regular ordination as a minister of the Universalist Church took place at the state gather- ing of that denomination in 1895. Mrs. Opdale underwent a rigorous ex- amination and sustained the ordeal with the greatest credit. Last June she preached for the first1 time to the congregation of St. Paul's at La Crosse. So well was she received that she was induced to spend her vaca- tion there last September. During this time she preached twice more and received the call which she has just accepted. Mrs. Opdale has preached several times in this city and made a most favorable impression upon those who heard her. She ia a tall slender woman with a pale intellectual face and she wea'rs in tbe pulpit a black silk robe with wide a like sleeves very appropriate garment. Mrs. Opdale is an enthusiastic wheel woman.
