monitions to the peoplo to live faith
ful to their religion nnd to tho con

miration and approval for tho high
er inspiration which directed the

tally able to perform tho duties de
volving upon mo excopt by tho as
sistance of tho Spirit of tho Lord.

and especially of thoso who are con
nected with tho Church of JesuB
Christ of Latter-day Saints to he
humble and prayerful and submissive
to tho laws of the Lord. Thoso who
are Industrious and successful, how

has put her In the forefront of BBfl
American men and women of letters. jflflfl
Her work on "Women nnd Econ- ABBI

of tho leaders of modem thought jVflfl
along soclnloglcnl and economic lines. iflBH

so published numerous works bear- HBB
Ing upon tho training of children, tho IflVfl
