Rev. Wildman Murphy
Galled to New Field
i'npiilar l.eial MluMcr Who lias Hceu
In American I'oik far I'nxt Ten
Years (Joe to I'ujmmi,
On August 17, Rev. Wildman Murphy
vlll give up his American Fork pas
oiate and with his family move to
I'ayson. The I'tah I'resbjtory has
been after Mr. Murphy for a long lime
to go to I'ayson, and ho has at last
consented to go, believing that the new
Held, or rather the old Held, will en
ablo him to do more good.
Mr. Murphy commenced his work
in tho ministry In I'ayson twenty-one
years ago. At that time he had charge
or tho Methodist Kplscopal church
thore. hater ho grew to faor tho
I'rpsbyterlnn church, nnd after llc
years' service In I'ayson, he went to
Eureka as pastor of tho I'resbyterlnn
church there. Three yenrs later he
was called to I'rovo, and two years
Inter he enmo to American Fork.
There Is a peculiar condition In
I'ayson that makes Mr. Murphy's call
particularly appropriate. Whllo there
fifteen years ago ho was pra'.or of the
little Methodist flock. Slnco his leav
ing tho church has had no regular
minister. Whllo In a way tho Moth-
odlsts have united with tlie rrcatiy
torlnns, there has been no gemjlne
union. Neither Is tho l'resbytorlnn
work thoro In ns thriving a condition
os It should be. Mr. Murphy being n
l'resbytorlnn now, will of courso go
to I'nyson to tnko chargo of tho I'res
bytorlnn church. Tlnr Methodists
thoro nro united In asking for Mr. Mur
phy to como back nnd promise to Join
with him In church work. So that
with both those In chargo of tho Meth
odist mission anil tho l're3bytorlan
mission calling him bock to I'ayson,
ho could not resist.
Mr. Murphy expresses real sorrow
at leaving American Fork,' and tho
many friends ho has mndo here. The
American Fork mission has never been
In ns prosporous condition us It is nt
present. Ho has thoroughly enjoyed
his work hero. Ho likes tho people
and tho progrcoslvo town spirit nnd
roels thnt It Is n good plnco to live
nnd renr a fnmlly
Mr. Murphy's little flock will bo
sorry to seo him go, nnd tho cltlzeiiB
cenornlly will bo sorry to loose him.
He Is nn nffablo gentleman nnd hns
always boon found working earnestly
on tho right sldo of all public ques
tions. He hns generally been found
taking an active Intores In public af
fairs, and In questions nffectlug the
moral uplift of tho community. He Is
a good man and a good citizen, and
ho peoplo of American Fork will be
loath to lot him go.
