10, at ten minutes to twelve the j
spirit of dear, sweet, Cora Day
t'ora Dayley Called Home.
On Sunday evening last Dec.
ley took its flight. In her pass-j
exemplified, the
words of the poet that—
Leaves Lave their time to fall
And flowers to w ither at the north
winds' breath,
And stars toset; But ail—
Thou hast all seasons for thine own,
O, Death!
This beautiful young lady
seemed just ripening into a glor
and useful womanhood, when
the grim reaper culled her out
friends who were holding on,
with all the faith and tenacity
with which it is possible for hu
man beings to cling to those
they love. Her relatives, friends
and brethren gathered around
her bed and bent their knees
In fervent supplication to the Throne
Of mere}', and performed their pray
ers with sighs
Sincere, and penitential tears, and
Of self abasement; but they sought
to stay
An angel on the earth, a spirit ripe
For Heaven; and Mercy in her love
Oakley mourns today in the
loss of one of her choicest, most
promising daughters,
departure leaves a vacancy in
many hearts that never can be
filled. S' e was one of thofce
sweet ministering spirits that
seemed destined to grace the
earth for only a little season,
and then to soar to more con
genial climes.
While here she endeared her
self to all. She was a kind and
a loving daughter, a faithful and
a deyoted sister, a loyal and a
trustworthy friend, a docile and
an obedient pupil, an earnest
and an indefatigable laborer in
the cause of Truth and God.
Her life was like a lily—pure and
spotles-. Of sueh.Heaven indeed may
well consist. We shall miss her here,
but we feil asfur d, that she
will be happier there, so we
must bo reconciled to our loss. May
we all be prepared to associate
with her in the Great Beyond.

so that she was in her eighteenth
year at the time of her demise,
She was the fifth of ten children
and is the first to pass into the
world Beyond. In July 1904,
Cora was operated upon for
appendicitis-an operation which
was so serious that the opera
ting physician and others in
attendance said that she could
not possibly survive. ' From this,
however, she rallied, and was
permitted to dwell for a year
and a half longer in the flesh,
Three weeksagoshe wasstricken
with typhoid which it is thought
superindueedother complications
arising from the effects of her
operation and which resulted in
herdeath. Since 1902 Cora has
kept a dairy of her life. This, i
when read, shows the beauty of ■
her character. Stie was accom
plished and talented .The beauti
ful manner in which she sang
"Life" at the latest conference
will remain fresh in the minds of
many forever. Cora was of a po
etic temperament. and has quite
a number of choice verses to
her credit.
Peace to her ashes, and God's
blessings upon the stricken
family and her sorrowing friends.
The funeral services held at the
Stake Tabernacle yesterday at

and impressive. The opening
and dosing songs "Not a spar
row Falleth" and "Nearer the
! Cross," were very beautifully

At the cemetery the song

To Editor Oakley Eagle, Kind
Friends, and Saints at Home.
As I have not the time to write
each one of you separately and
trusting that the friendship and
regard I have for you is recipro
cated, I take this opportunity to
assure you that there is a mis
sionary out in the world, who
thinks of the many, many
friends at home, and who is ever
praying that Heaven will re
ward you for your kindness ex
tended to her, in those dark
hours of her life. Through the
great and glorious blessings of
the gospel I am able now to com
fort others.
I have had good health,plenty
to eat, and with a few excep
Fading away like the star s in the morning,
Losing their light in the glorious sun ,
Thus you have passed from the earth and its toiling,
Only remembered by the good yon have done.
When ice arise in that glorious morning
Free from all sorrow , all pain, and from death
Oh! may we all as you on that dawning,
Be only remembered by the good we have done.

I am happy, contented, and al
ways busy. How I wish all our
boys and'girls could feel as I feel
today. Those just starting out in
life would be so happy, could

conditions with those that ex

To my dear young girls, 1

pure and try to realize that we
hold "our girls.' up as examples
to the World. Oh! girls try to
be what we, out here, claim you

womanly woman has more
charms . for a true gentleman
than all the "gold that glitters."

Coal Mine Located.
The following is from the
Logan Republican;—
"C. H. Shaw, of Avon and
Hans A. Pedersen of this city, re.
turned home from Cassia county,
Idaho last Friday night with fine
specimens of coal and gangue
matter which is always in prox
imity to a vein. The prospect
was found about four years ago
when C. H. Shaw was herding
sheep in Cassia county it is loeat
ed about thirty-five mile south
of Minidoka, and about fifteen
miles east of Maffa, It is at the
base of a mountain range and can
almost be reached with a wagon,
Water and timber sufficient for
mining purposes are convenient,
foot square was dug specimens
of coal similar to that from Rock
springs waslaken out. In thenear
future development work will be
done. Fine specimens of this coal
are in the office of H. A. Pedersen
When a hole not more than
in this city and may be seen bv 1
those interested."
. I
Cassia people are not at all j
i surprised at such statements as Lf
the above. Everyboby here : 'j
know that the eastern part of our | )
county is one vast bed of coal,
and other mineral bearing roca- ,
all that it lacks ismoneyandenter- iAc
prise to digit out. Some day ourj ^
good people will be regretting j
that we have stood by and let
others develop our mines and ^
make their fortunes. It needs
no prophet to see that just such
things are coming our way.
When we consider the fact that
there are several places in our
inmediate neighborhood where
one can drive and load up with
a very fair quality of lignite it
seems more than passing strange
that some one has not energy
enough to delve a little way into
the earth and uncover bituminous
When a railroad company
such as the Union Pacific with its
geologic experts, offers fifty thou
sand dollars for a coal prospect
as they did a few years ago for
an undeveloped mine in the
neighborhood of the one men
tioned above, we may feci reason
ably certain that
coal there. Most people do nut
realize that a coal mine is better
than a gold mine, yet such is in
deed the case. If our own people
do not care for the weath of our
mouutian she is simply overlaid
with a little dirt,we presume the
next thing is to welcome those
who are willing to come in and
dig out a few fortunes. Come in
boys and help yourselves.

The Country Editor.
In view of the brilliant success
achieved by governor Hoch in
his speech at the Warner and
Commercial Club banquets, some
of the Kanas politicians have
been compelled to revise their
estimate of the capabilities of the
Kansas executive. As one of the
prominent Kansans expressed it,
"Governor Hoch's speech showed
some of the people of Kans^*' 1
who have had a wrong itnjfres
sion of the governor that he is
morethan a mere country editor,
Doubtless this statement was
intended as a fine compliment,
but certainly the comparison it
contains is not very complimen
tray to its author's powers of
reflection and discrimination.
Noclass of men in any community
are better fitted by their business
training to be governor, or to
fill any office except that of judge
than "a mere country editor."
The succesful country editor
must be diplomat and statesman
lawyer and politician, teacher
and priest, philosopher and man
of action all rolled into one. He
must be a man of infinite tact
and discretion, to avoid giving
offense by ill-timed truth and yet
to sift the good wheat from the
chaff. He hears more secrets than
a confessor, concerning which he
must be as dumb as an oyster
and as charitable as Saint Peter.
He must hold the balance true
between all the diverse and con
flicting interests which strive for
aggrandizement in every com
munity, and keep his own hands
as spotless as the ermine ofajud
ge. He must constantly return
good for evil and do countless
favors for other, even though his
own woodbox may be empty and
as the barren fig tree. lie must
consider everybody else first and
himself last and above all he
must be an optimist and boom
his community in segson and out
of season in spite of the world,
the flesh and the knockers. If
any man can show a better title
to earthly honors and a reward
