from n Salt Lako paper:
After ten months of-suffcrlng Mrs.
Emily Wells Grant, wife of Heber
J. Grant, died nt 2:30 o'clock yester
day afternoon. , Stricken In July,
1907, Mrs. Grant struggled heroical
ly against the ravages of n dlsense
which for n long tlmo could not be
properly diagnosed, but which was
finally pronounced to bo cancer of the
stomach. This conclusion was revil
ed after shu had been removed trf the
hospital, where It was expected that
nn operation would he performed.
WMien tho nature, of tho malady was
learned, the patient wait removed to
her home, where she complacently
awaited the end. Mrs. Grant's moth
er, Mrs. Martha 0. Harris Wells, died
two weeks ago, and that event doubt
less hastened tho daughter's death.
Than Mrs. Grant, few of Salt
Lake's younger matrons wero better
known or more generally loved. She
was of li lovable disposition, kind,
loving, nnd charitable, and her
friends included all acquaintances.
She was n daughter of tho lato Dan
iel 11. and Martha G. Wells, and was
bom In this city April 22, 18(17. Bar
ring a brief sojourn abroad, bIiu lived
here all her life. She was a gradu
ate of the educational institution for

lives mourn her death, a sorrow
khatud by numerous friends. She
wno a sister of former Gov. Heber M.

The funeral will be held tomorrow
commencing at 2 o'clock, from tho
family residence, corner of 11 street
