Hh This is a handsome vol mix.', piviuc In
i full tho lifu and labors for tlio Mormon
t, church, of President Wilford Woodruff.
The text of the work is made up largely
f of tho diaries which were so diligently
f Ivepi by President Woodruff during -all
, ihe vonrs of his life, and that they -ire
full" and explicit, t renting evcrythuiK
l from his own standpoint as a leading
clnirchnian, goes with the saying. Air.
Woodruff was diligent and faithlul in
his calling as a Mormon sectary, ncc
lecting nothing to speed the work he
" lad in hand, and giving hiniselt and all
l; his effort without reserve (o the cause,
k Tho presentation in the work which
i is of greatest interest; to tho general
v public is Chapter 52', which touches
upon tho noted Manifesto issued by
President Woodruff on September -1th,
1S90. tho text of which has been fre
quently printed. It appears .that Presi
l. uent Woodruff made no special entry in
l his private journal of tho circumstances
leading up 'to the issuing of the Mam
festo: the onlv entry supposed to per
'i tain to it, being, "T have been called
v; upon this day to act for thc.chwrch.
The Manifesto was submitted to the
W; general conference of the Mormon
h church on October Gth. 1S00. In ex-
Hi plaining this lie stated to the congregn-
i tinn that "the step which I have taken
in l.-suiug this Manifesto has not. boon
douo without earnest prayer before the
M' Lord, and he asked to bo sustained
bv the prarnrs of the Latter-day Saints
i! in issuing it. In the course of his re-
marks he said further: "The Lord has
K' given us commandments concerning
manv things, and. we have carired them
HL out 'as fnr as we could: but when wo
Hl t'Tiinol do it. wo are .iustiJied. The Lord
Hli (Iocs not require at our hands things
Hl'j thai we cannot do. Our nation is in
Hie hands of God. Ho holds its destiny.
He holds the destinies of all men. T

elder in Israel and a9 an apostle of the

Hod ever poured out upon (he world.
Hjb Vou watch the signs of the times, the
K, signs of (he coming of the Son of
w'. Man. Thcv are beginning to be made
wf manifest both ill heaven and on earth."
H,' Notation is made that President
H?' Woodruff spoke upon the subject of the
Manifesto a"t a conference in Brigham
1 on the 2.1th of October. No mention
H( is made, however, of his speech on the
same .subject at Logan a few days lat
rr. we believe: and neither is anv rof
j erence mnde to President. Woodruff's
t testimony before the master in chancery
as to rhe irue purport and interpreta
t!on of the Manifesto; nor is there any
reference io the. interview which he
i' gave in the Salt Lake Times to the
Hji sumo effect. We hold that M.r. Cow-
Hi ley, the compiler of this life of Prcsi-
dent Woodruff, is derelict in not giving
these things, so as to show forth fairly
and clearly tlie position of the then
j rrsident of tlie Mormon church and his
explanations as to whv the Manifesto
was issued, as to why it was necessary,
and its true interpretation. We should
r thinlc that in this record the full slofy
should he printed and not; morcly one
H side of the story, or a part of it.
This is a blemish that mars the use
i fulness of tlie work, and will inevitably
Hi- detract from its merits, for it is not
enough that one side only of the story
y should be given.
? J In a work like this, involving large
L i public finest ions, the utmost, candor and
i- good faith should govern the. compiler;
- il did not do so in the matter of the
L Manifesto and the facts concerning" it.
f Tt is to be hoped that in other respects
( Hie work is less objectionable; but cer-
Hj' amlv, so far as this particular chapter
is concerned, much improvement, is to
Hlel bf desired. We believe, that, in all iliip.
H President Woodruff was entirely sin-
HJ; cpre: that he acted and spoke in good
H(j faith: and it is duo to his memory that
k all the facts should be presented.

of civic routine and humdrum occupa

This is n series of essays, numbering
ten, besides the "introduction" which
is entitled "Tho Decoration of Life,"

pages arc a fit introduction to the
consideration ofT-thc body of the work.
"The Service of Books," is the first
chapter; .it pojnts out. the way to get
the most out of the books, and "develops
the idea that tho best, books arc always
decidedly to bo used as will best fit
the thought and tho temper. Then,
comes "Our Children," -a fervent tri

on habits and character. "Friendship"
is dwolt upon as a sacred thing, always
to be cherished and never let slip.
"Human Relations" are to be fostered.1

and the most and best made pf them.
"Tiic Area of Personality" is a ploa
for every individual to make his or
her influence count for good and, en

recognizes that in every person there

"Solitude" is beneficial, it is urged,

touch at " limes. and no more.
"Memornt Mcmorin" treats of the
passing of the years, of the timo mark

Positively No American Car in the 40 to 50 H. P.
Class Can Equal Its Splendid Perform
It is the only American car in its class that is
equipped -with the new extra silent, foreign motor
rlesign, which develops) such vastly increased
power at same piston speed, viz., long stroke cy
linders with very large smoothed gas passages and
manifolds, also water jacketed valve stems the
design that has revolutionized motor construction
abroad by winning all the 4" motor contests, the
Grand Prix race, etc., etc. and that is also
equipped with six cylinders and also has the larg
est reverse power.
The Following" Facts Are Convincing, But a Dem
onstration Is Proof.
The "M" six-cylinder motor develops 50 IT. P.
at 1090 It. P. M. and 60 H. P. at 1400 E, P. M.,
which is 14 per cent more power than A. L. A. M.
rating, which is standard.
Many cars run fast enough, but only cars r.f
highest quality can run slow enough on high gear.
Model M will run smoothly as slow as three
miles per hour, slower than a man walks, loaded
with passengers, amidst the crowded traffic of
city strcts, on high gear without changing. It is
safer, easier, and a new and most delightful ex
perience and a performance unrivaled. Tho surest
proof of great reserve power, six-cylinder flexi
bility am; highest motor efficiercy. '
When desired, Model M will run slowly on
high gear on bad roads and hills that most cars
arc compelled ,1o run on lower gear or at break
neck aud uncomfortable speed to accomplish on
high another strong proof: of great reserve
power, six;Cylindcr superiority and high motor ef
The same car, loaded with passengers, can run
60 miles per hour on country roads another
proof of great reserve power and high motor ef
ficiency. Model M develops a speed of 20 miles per hour
at only 560 It. P. M. ; 30 miles per hour at 840
It. P. M.; 40 miles per hour at 1120 It. P. M.,
etc, etc. ,At the same speed, short-stroke motors
of same bore require 37 per cent more revolu
tions; 37 per cent more jar on bearings; 37 per
cent more vibration; 37 per cent more wear: 37.
per cent shorter life; 37 per cent more noise of
exhaust' and valves; more oil, etc. another proof
of increased motor efficiency, and proof that there
is less vibration, greater silence, smooLher run
ning, easier hill climbing andfar greater flexibil
ity in the' six-cylinder "Long Stroke" motor de
sign. All the Latest Foreign Models of Most Popular
