VDath at all times and under any
circumstances is both sad and eud
den, but especially is this true
when a little child is thus suddenly
snatched from the home of loving
parents, just at a time when her
awakening intelligence and childish
innocence seem to render life at
home without her a sad and dreary
waste. With whit unspeakable
anguish do they consign her body
to the cold rnd silent grave, how
utterly devoid of happiness appear
the future years of life when fond
pareuts fully realize when they re
turn to their desolate boms that
"Baby is dead."
Yes; dear sorrowing friends, your
baby is dead and gone from you,
but stop for a moment in your op
pressive grief and anguish and ask
yourself the question : "Where has
she gone?" You can find tbe an
swer to this question best in your
own hearts, for although the sweet
little form is lost to you ought
at least to be some comfort in the
thought that your loved one is safe
in the arms of the loving Saviour,
who said "Suffer little children to
come unto roe and forbid them not,
for of such is the kingdom of heav
en ; that though the trail and pain-
racked body has been returned to
mother earth the spirit is with the
God who gave it. Oh, think of her
as a happy and rejoicing angel,
awaiting the time when all tbe dear
ones left behind can meet her in
that heavenly land where partings
will never come, but where all will
be joy, peace and gladness through
out all tbe endless years of eternity.
Then mourn not though the loved

In a recent letter to Bob Estill,

things in my letter to Will about
this place of wonders I wish to cor
rect. One is the great organ of the
Tabernacle, whose dimensions are
33 feet long. 30 wide and 48 feet
The other is Great Salt Lake,
which is 100 miles long, 60 wide in
places, with an average width of
30 miles; 60 feet deep in places,
with an average depth of 20 ft.
Twenty-two per cent of this lake is
salt, and you can bathe in it with

that 1 11 ever live to get away ; but
in your case you'll always want to,
and in mine I shall always look

many histories have been written.
and in which there dwells a cos

The impressions made upon any
one visiting Salt late City will
last I hem a life time. The air of
mystery and the evidence of secret
orkings and secret influences
among these people arouses the
curiosity of every visitor. The
great temple which so fixed and
held the admiration and interest of
T. Estill was dedicated in 1893, 1
in April, in the presence of 20,000
people, from various portions of
the West, mostly Mormons. A great
many Gentiles, as the Mormons
called us, were present to witness
that memorable event. The Mormon i
preacher hud for years been
teaching the fnlloweis of Joseph
Smith that on the day the great
temple was dedicated the prophet
would appear in person before his
followers. Like other "skeptics,
as those peculiarly religious people
called us, we knew that it was a
physical impossibility for an ordi
nary mortal like Joseph Smith to
appear on that or any other day
set by mortal agencies. Yet those
del tided Mormons believed it with
the roost implicit faith. On that
day their credulity was put to the
severest test. A Mormon woniun
on that day gave birth to a child
within the temple walls. Accord-
nglf. t carry out their sham,
their ministers persuaded them
that their lord and seer had ap
peared in the form of that child.
He was named Moroni in honor of
the angel who led the prophet to
Cumorah hill in Ontario county.
New York, where he received his
commands on tablets of stone.
Feasted and worshiped will Moroni
be while young and at man's estate
he will be "charge d" affairs" in tbe
Mormon church. Oh, religion, what
sacrilege is committed in thy
Wonderful indeed is the great
temple. Nearly $4,000,000 were
spent in its construction, and it i
an enduring monument to tbe pa
tience and faitb of the Mormon
people. Tbe great tabernacle with
its sweet-toned mammoth organ is
a product of Utah skill and Utah
material. The roost astonishing
feature of the tabernacle is the
wonderful acoustic properties of
the great egg-shaped building. A
whisper can be beard from the
rostrum to the farthest row in the
galleries. The unique architecture
of the building! delightful. It is
the largest auditorium in the United
States, seating 12.000 people, and
has the largest self-supporting roof
in the nation.
Between the Bee Hive and Lion
houses, one square from Temple
block, is the tithing office. Here
these poor dupes of bright minds
are called upon every year to pay
of all their produce into the
rollers of the Mormon church.
