Wednesday has the following:
There are many grieving hearts in
Peoria today caused by the sudden
and untimely death of Miss Vivian
Demple, a young and lovely girl, well
known in Peoria, which took place at
her home in Keokuk, Iowa, on Monday
night Miss Demple, who was twenty
years of age, had visited her school
mate, Mim Lucile Dally, at the home
of Senator and Mrs. John Daily, sev
eral times and was greatly admired
and liked by the young people here.
She was so youthful and gay, so fnll
of the thrin and joy of life that to as
sociate her with death seems impos
sible and those who knew and loved
her find it almost Impossible to credit
the terrible news. An added note of
tragedy is lent to the death by the
fact that Miss Demple was to have
been married next month to a Wash
ington man she met while at school in
the capital ctty. Miss Daily, who was
with her most Intimate friend, la pros
trated with grief and the news Is be
ing received with general sorrow.

Nauvoo will see a mild winter ac
cording to the good old-fashioned
signs. Men who base weather fore
casts on the turns of nature, cite reas
ons for saying that the 1916-17 winter
will not be severe. One 1b that the
corn husks are thin and a good many
ears on the stalks are exposed. It is
said that when this is the case the
winter will be mild. Another man
says animals that dig holes in the
earth are not digging deep to occupy
during the winter months which is an
old sign. He says that when these ani
mals throw up big heaps of dirt near
their holes that it is known they have
gone deep to escape the extreme cold.
This year it is said the piles of dirt are
not large, which Indicates that the
holes are not deep. We print every
thing that's optimistic.
"Got your turkey yet?" asked one
Nauvoo citizen of another. "Three of
them each year," he answered. I

don't you?

streets during the day and everything
passed off pleasantly.

Henry Ward Beecher: They came,
sometimes, wtthout our knowing what
brings them. There is always a
cause, but we are not always con
scious of it. I have had some Sab
bath mornings that rose upon me
with healing in their wings, after a
troubled week. I can scarcely tell
why 1 was troubled, but the mind's
fruit was net sweet. Yet, when the
Sabbath morning came, I no sooner
looked down upon the bay and across
at my morning signal—the star on
Trinity church, symbolic of the star
that hung over the spot where the
child Jesus lay—than I felt that it
was an eloct morning. And when I
went Into the street, .all the trees—
if it was summer—were murmuring
to me all tne birds were singing to
me the clouds were bearing mes
sages to me everything was kindred
to me. All my soul rejoiced I do
not know why, But undoubtedly
there was some cause operating
which waB in consonance with the
laws of the mind and when the
morning came, with its propitious
conjunction of circumstances, these
results took place.
