Mr. and Mrs. Thomas were
fairly well to do in Wales,
they parted freely with their
means to the needy and to those
that were immigrating, and vol

of the plains. They remained
but a short time in Salt Lake
City', whence they' moved to
Brigham City where Mr. Thomas
built the second abode house of
the city. In 1876 they moved
to Park Valley, Utah where they

Ann McBride succumbed to ap
pendicitis and attendent com

been ailing some since February
22, in that he suffered considera
ble pain and was unable to keep
anything on his stomach,
troubles increased until the lat
ter part of last week when he
was operated upon for appendi
citis, but the case was so serious
that little hopes vvereintertained
for his recovery and he became a
prey as before stated to the mal
dy. It was found necessary to
perform burial ceremonies
early as possible so that after
short services at the'home on |
Sunday at 4- p. m. in which Bps.
Haight and Funk and Pres,
Harper participated, his remains
was interred in the city cemetery.
William was born in the Basin
on November 36, 1887, and was
one of twelve children ten of
whom are still living, The fami

the loss of their brother, who
was a general favorite among
them. The family have the sym
pathy of all in their sorrow, and
we trust that they will be able
to accept the divine decree, and
will receive comfort from Him
who gives and who in His Prov
idences also takes away.
Owing to delay of trains and
bad roads Prof Maud May Bab

give the recital as advertised but
gave the same on Saturday and
Monday evenings to large and
appreciative audiences. Accord
ing to the testimony of many
they were the best entertainments
of their kind that have ever been
g ,ven in Oakley. Prof Babcock
also gave a reading on Monday
afternoon for the entertainment
and instruction of the children.
Fully five hundred, ranging
from two years to fourteen were

breathless suspense for more than
an hour. It is safe to say the
little Lots will never forget the
delights of the afternoon.
We congratulate our Stake
Academy on having secured such
a talented artist as Miss Babcock.
It is to be hoped that other en
tertainments of ((like character
will be given lrom time to time
by the school. They will not
only give character and strength
to the school, but they will
have an uplifting effect upon the

Improvement Association of the

fact that some of our boys are
departing from the principles and
teachings of the Gospel, and are
engaging in practices that are
detrimental to both health and

at this time, thejuse of spirituous
liquors and tobacco.
In view of the alarming increase
of these .baneful practices, we
desire to put ourselves upon re

our Father in Heaven.
(1) That we. ourselves, shall
refrain from the use of these

powers and influence to induce
others to refrain form using
(3) That we shall endeavor by
all laudable means to make there
practices unpopular among our
friends and acquaintances.

and our determination to im

something reaching far into the
distance; rich in (beautiful exper

highest joy to deepest sorrow,
and the responsibilities of living
reach in the one direction as
much as the other.
Life is not a mere collection of
frivolities, nor a long routine ol
moaning and sorrow but a mass
of varied experiences, each teach
ing its own lesson and together
fashioning the character we take
with us into the great hereafter.
Therefore, take it neither flip

as something given to us to be
made use of both for self and
It is one of the pleasures of
youth that its pictures of the
future are visions of beauty.
Every young man and boy
has day dreams,as we say, builds
air castles and thinks of all that
is coming as filled with joy.
He would be reluctant to disclose
there visions to others; he would
be afraid of being laughed at.
