Those demands, he said, were an in
dication of the need of spreading the
doctrine of the church, which, he said,

Christianity,, the brotherhood of man
and the fatherhood of God.
The president divided the members
of church Into three classes — the
permanent residents, the people in offi
cial life whose residence here is tem
porary, and those who do not attend
services at all.
"Now, to the first class, those who are
permanent residents," he said. '"It seems
to rpe hardly necessary to urge the im

that the church In which they are to
worship for their lives should be ade
quate to the purpose for which a church
Is built and consecrated.

Nevada Postmaster and Rela
tive of John Hays Hammond
Found Dead
[Special Dispatch to The Cell]
RJBNO, April r - i-Tonl has reached
here of the suicide of Postmaster Ben
Sanford of Aurutn. Nye county. New
Sanford, who was a peculiar charac
ter, professed relationship to the noted
mining engineer. John Hays Ham

hauling the mails between Cherry
Creek and Aurum. A discharged re
volver was firmly clutched In the
nerveless fingers.
Sanford was an Inveterate cigarette
smoker and although .more than 60
years old took medicine which con
tained mercury. -* His teeth became
loose and he sent to an. eastern mail
order house for a pair of dentist's
forceps with which he extracted all his
his teeth. He carried a small meat
grinder when Invited out to meals and
screwed it on the edge of the table
for the purpose of preparing meat.
.lie became addicted to the '"baking
soda habit" in recent years, and it was
not an uncommon occurrence for him
to eat an ordinary sized package of
soda In a day. It is believed that the

at Aurum in lt?l Sanford went to that
camp and engaged- In business. He
resided there continuously about -40
years. San ford has been postmaster
in that little town "since the memory
of man runneth to the contrary."
