ham City Commercial club were present

aU these were many hundreds of per
sons of no lodge afflllatlon attending out
of respect and love for the dead man
The body of Fisher Harris sentineled by
a Scottish Rite guard reposed In state
In the auditorium of the Masonic temple
from 9 oclock In the morning until 1
oclock In the afternoon and was viewed
by thousands Amid the chill snow flur
ries of the morning hours hundreds of
prominent business men made their way
Into the temple and paid last sad and
often tearful homage to the man loved
throughout the commonwealth VIsitors
from many sections of the west came In
to Salt Lake for the funeral
At 2 oclock the time set for the serv
kes the auditorium and balconies were
packed with somberlydre5scd people The
casket raised on a dais was In plain view
of the entire assemblage and a long
wide aisle extending to the ritual rooms
of the Masonic order was kept open
About the casket clusters of rich red
roses were tastily placed and on the
raised platform of the stage a gigantic
urn filled with chrysanthemums towered
over the head of the coffin This was
from the Commercial club A floral piece

Obey WIdows Request
Simplicity marked every feature of the
servIces This was at the request of Mrs
HarrIs Brief beautiful and impressive
was the eulogy and the ritual The Rev
Mr Simpkin paid an eloquent tribute to
the man who was his close personal
friend Among other things In the course
of his beautiful encomIum the Rev Mr
Simpkin said
My Brethren As we bring Into the
holy of holies of this temple the dust
of a sunnhearted brother whose soul
has gone out Into the presence of that
Master Who only can praise and who
only can blame It Is with the knowledge
that the pain and sorrow that center
here affects a circle vastly wider than the
brotherhood of which he was a distin
guished and beloved member
It has been many a long day since any
soul has gone out from the life of this
city that meant In Its going so much of
loss as that of Fisher Sanford Harris A
sunny genial nature geniustouched and
endowed In singular measure with attri
butes of greatness was his and the hour
In whIch we gather about his dust Is one
which a multitude sharing In the great
empire of the west for which he gave his
life mourn a benefactor
For the thinking men and women of
our city the thought greater than any
of our commercial or Industrial Interests
greater than any thought of private gain
is that of an open grave and all It speaks
of the worth of this beautiful soul who
touched the world so hopefullY Ere we
lay him for the long sweet sleep under
the shadow of the mountaIns he loved
50 wen where the skies whose praises he
delighted to sing may smile and weep
above his resting place it is but fit
ting we should speak a word of love and
As a man he was generous upright
the soul of integrity with a heart that
beat to aU the world He walked among
men with nc passion for acquisition no
fever for gettinghis one purpose seemed
to be like the sun and wind and flow
ers to give and help and serve As a
citizen he was highly honored the gifts
he possessed fitting him for wIde serv
None Better Loved
It Is safe to say that no man In the
great commonwealth was more beloved
or more useful and In the wonderful de
velopment of the city and state In the
remarkable advance of these last years
he had a greater share than any citizen
of the state
Without malice or rancor with char
Ity and sweetness he has wrought a
splendid work The biggest figure In the
company of men that makes the states
leading business organization his clever
brain and Indefatigable spirIt were given
to every project that made for the states
upbulldlng or the betterment of I any hu
man life One may not touch upon the
sacred life of the home except to speak
of the ideal love and sympathy whIch
made It a place beautiful beyond the or
dlnao To the dear ones whose altar Is
broken down who lose most In this ex
perience we speak a word of love and
commend them to the love and comfort
of the good Father who has receIved hIm
nto rest
And as a Mason who exemplified Its
livIng principles a man and citizen whose
chivalrous southern heart expressed his
spirit of love and help to all the world
as one who walked In Integrity and with
honor In aU the walks of life we grieve
for him and yet bow beneath the will of
God In quiet trust
A few days ago as I looked Into his
eyes painglazed and weary and bade
him remember that Gods will Is always
best he smiled an assent and as he went
out Into the valley he went unafraid with
his trust In the great Brother of the
race and could sing In his going
Sunset and evening star
And one clear call for me
And may there be no moaning ot the
When I put out to sea
We turn our eyes thankfully to the
great silver sea over whose unruffled
bosom his bark floats In the gladness
eternal and trust that when the end is
come for us we may Join him and aU
the worthhearted In the spaces eternaL
And through the days till we meet again
we shall never forget the sweetness and
heroism of his life of beautiful service and
devotion to the city and state for which
he made IIfos sacrifice and shall hope
that our own end may be as sweet and
peaceful as he found In the shadows that
held the abiding morning for hIm

Covered with Bleeding Humor when
a Baby Poor Little Sufferer
Found No Rest and Could Only
Fret and Cry Until Very First Use

My baby boy was afflicted with eo
zems It ran on him until he Will
full of sores from his head

bottom of his fret were
Im full of cracks With the

lieve that his case was as
bad it genecally
w for he was bleeding all
over and could not rest
He wu too small to tell
anything about it only to
fret and cry We could
get nothing to relieve him until we got
the Cuticura Ointment and the first
application of the OintmEnt put him to
Bleep Then we used Cuticura Re
solvent and Cuticura Soap and he con
tinued to improvG until cured The
