Hard Work the Basis.
Especially in the nodding heads of jH
the grayboards and tho brown, seamed jH
faces of the mothers in iKrael Is to be
sefn the history of early struggles with
want and famine, .lauds hardened by
contact with plough and hoe, form

No Famine in Babies.
While the places of honor are re
served for the oldest, the most noise is
created by the younger members of the
congregation. Thotv? wornon who 1 e
babies, and every Mormon woman be
tween the agca of 20 and 40 Is supposed
to Includfnl in this category, take
them to conference. Every Mormon IB
baby holds an a tenet of Its faith that
it is entitled to lacteal refreshments
whenever tlie spirit moves. A general
conference Is one of the few plucen
where the mother refuses to comply
with the demandh- of her offspring, and
the result is an infantile insurrection.
In tlie midst of the most solemn in
vocation criev of protest, hunger and In
dlgn'nllon will drown the words of the
speaker and Incite other ymall persons
similarly aiTilcted to their best vocal
effocts. Tho original disturbers.' not to
be outdone, will redouble their exer
tlons. and it Is seldom that they fall to
gain their demands and force their
mothers to retire.
