splendid service In. affording enter

to the many tourists and transient
who come nmong us. Its report shows
that approximately 200.000 visitors
wore received at the bureau of Infor

The missionary work of the church
outside tho stakes has been carried on
with unabated zeal. The number of
missionaries laboring In the several
mission fields during the year ap
proximated an average of 2000; of tills
number over S00 went from home to
the various mission Holds during tho
ye.ir. Among tho missionaries are
over 100 women, located principally
In cities and towns where their serv
ices can be most properlv applied.
The presidents of stakes should feci

field not less than six to the 1000 of

After this attack on enemies of the
church President Smith told the con
ference of tho splendid condition of
the church, of the progress it was mak
ing and of tho faithful and efficient
work which, he said, its officers were
doing. JTo complimonted the Tfelie so

After reading a statement regarding
hurch conditious from the presiding
oishonric's office, President Smith
ailed attention to the fact that re
ports had como to the presidency of

'iiipving prominent places in the priest

their bishops that they have graduated

"President Pcnroso is S2 and I am
almost 76, but neither of us is too old

Later in tho session President Smith
said that some had aaked tho question
as to what became of tho tithing money.

Interesting and Instructive. The tlgr

Of theso marriages 8 to the 1000 were
Bolemnlzed In tho temples and 7 to
tho 1000 wero performed throuRli
civil ccromony outside tho temples.
While tho rnto of marriages among
the members of the church In our

During tho year there has been a.
greater proportion of baptisms of

ably duo to the more systematic mis
sionary service within tho stakes, In
which excellent labor tho seventies 1
have been prominent. Organized and

tho seventies has been conducted
whoroby tho message of tho Cospal
has been carried to many of our non
"Mormon" friends who aro tulip
mombers of the communities In which
our peoplo dwell. It is as surely our
duty to preach tho gospel to non

wo dwell as it Is to carry tho mes

missionary labor rests upon tho local

siastic in politics and that often they

President Penroso mentioned the

Diamonds On I
Credit at 1
Hubbard-Denn s I
Buying a Diamond usually requires a considera- I
ble sum of money, and until we opened our Dia- ig
mond Credit Department, it was often impossible
for a- man of ordinary means to own a diamond. W
Now, we figured it this way : There are hun-' HHi
dreds of perfectly honest people who would like W,
to buy a Diamond, but who cannot afford to mi
spend so much money in a lump sum. flfi
Any responsible person of honest intention H
may buy a Diamond at this store by paying one- Bj
fifth down and the balance on easy payments. WA
For instance, on a Diamond worth ?100, $20 El
would be paid at time of purchase and the bal- H
ance divided in eight monthly payments of $10 H
each. No interest charges. H
We do not intend that there shall be anything H
spectacular about our plan, and we consider our AC
method a strictly legitimate business proposition. fl
It is just as proper to buy a Diamond on the pay- M
ment plan as to buy a piano or building lots. M
This store invites the closest inspection of its H
business methods and reputation. We sell pnly HI
merchandise of high quality, and every article in m
our store is marked in plain figures. m
There really isn't any reason why you should n
longer put off buying that Diamond. We have B
at this time the largest stock of fine Diamonds I a
we have ever shown, and it is open and ready for H
you right now. R
