The statement that the Latter Day Saints talked of buying the present M. K. church , building hecm to have caused considerable worry on the part of some. A lady is reported as saying at a society meeting that she hoped they (the Methodists) would not sell to the Mormons. The facts are there are no Mormons in Ilelding that we are aware of. The Reorganized church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are not and never have been connected with that people, further more they have done 'more to put down the evils of Utah Mornionlsm than all the rest of the churches com bined. The faith of the Latter Day Saints is the same today as when the church was lirst organized in ls.'jo, and has always remained the same. About the year 1M1 when the church num bered Ot),0(N) Pirigham Voting led 10. ooo away to Utah and there set up his abominable church, teaching- Adam, Cod-worship, blood atonement and j polygamy. However we understand even thev do not teach these things any more, but are teaching the gospel as they understand it. We of the re organization nave to hear the stiL'nKi which rightfully belongs to that peo pie. As to the In lief of our people obtain ing the gilt ot eternal life through obedience to the Cospel law as laid down in the Uible, we believe that the Ihble should be the standard of evidence, and the end of all dispute regarding religious matters when al lowed to lie its own interpreter, Should the deal for the M. U. church take dace the words "An Open llibk and a Free Pulpit"' probably will be placed on the door when into full pos session of it, as our people believe in according toothers the same nrivi ledges and rights that we would wisl of others where we had no church building. Over seventeen years ago I embraced the Restored (lospel after several months of investigation, and from that day to this J have never seen an hour when J ha v; doubted the tr;ithfulncJiX)f .thia W.ri, hence I feel that the establishment of the church here should be welcomed by all lovers of truth and purity.

Although it has been all around us Beldmg has entirely escaped the small pox epidemic until the present week. Jesse Dap was taken sick and Monday morning came down to Dr. Dutt's ollice to consult him. The doctor decided he had a well defined case of small pox and sent for city health ollicer Ohlinger, who also con firmed Dutt's diagnosis. He is now in quaaantine at the residence of his father, and the board of health promptly proceeded to fumigate all places where possible contagion was suspected and is in everv wav trving to prevent further spread. No alarm nas neen occasioned particularly or any effect on business, as many people have doubts about it really being small pox, and if it is, it is thought he wns quarantined too early to cause other cases.

Her Work and Called to I'est. Airs riaran ertrees Ireland was born at Ft. Wayne, Indiana, July 4th, l&W, and died in this city March J!th, 1902. Aged US years, S months, 1" days. When five years of age, with her parents, she moved to Lee County, Illinois, where she lived over sixty years. Converted at thirtcvn years of age, she has lived an exemplary christian life, being- a member of the Methodist church of this city at the time of her death. She was married to William W. Ireland at Dixon, Illinois, December IS, lSoO. Seven children were born to them, four of whom survive her T. Frank, Chas. A. and Mrs. Wadsworth of this city, and Mrs. R. A. Wilder of Boone, Iowa. After the death of her husband in 1S!)S. she made her home in our city and has endeared herself to many friends. Were we to name the marked characteristics, we would say, Iler's was a christian, motherly, gen erous, friendly, joyous life. The mother makes or unmakes the home; the keynote of this home was Loyalty In Its highest and purest sense. Loyalty to that highest in stinct in the human heart, which is only satisfied by love for our Maker and obedience to his divine commands. Loyalty to husband and children, which made the home consecrated spot to each member of the household. Loyalty to friends and neighbors, many of whom called upon her for help In times of need, distress and pain, but never called in vain. Her mother heart not only brooded over those given especially into her keeping', but, making the fireside cir cle a little wider, many a motherless, homeless, unfortunate one was taken Into her home, cared for, prayed for, loved, until today from places far and near, these men and women call her blessed and mourn the loss of a true friend. Since the death of the husband, af ter a life of over forty years together, her joyousncss seemed dimmed and life held little for her save what she might add to the happiness of those nearest and dearest and as a welcome release. After a life well spent she heard the "well done" of her Creator. Funeral services at the home this (Thursday) afternoon at .'1 p.m., Rev. Carman officiating.
