Today wo are in he famous Mormon city of Utah, talcing in some of its many sights of interest, among which was a personally conducted trip til rough tin? Mormon Assembly, the Mormon Tabernacle, and the grounds surrounding the great Mormon Temple. Temple cost five million dollars and was forty years in building. Monday, 27th, we came over "Marshall Pass," the highest point reached by the Denver & Rio Grande route crossing the Rockies- a hight a little more tlian two miles above sea level. Tue snow there was two feet Tdeey or move. On our trip^we found many places without any snow, other places with a little and still others with good sleigh ing. Sunday morning our party with about thirty others attend ed service in the Colorado State penitentiary. The prison banP and choir, some forty in number all convicts—rendered some excellent music, which together with a very interesting sermon made it an entertainment for our bunch somewhat out of the or dinary. Uf course we were un ner lock and key and in the pres ence of several hundred "bad men" and a dozen or more armed prison guards. To say the least, we felt much more at ease again when the iron doors swung open and we were outside those great high massive walls. The correspondence courses given by the Indiana School of ably sight seeing in and around Traetioneering includes courses in gas engines, power farming, and agricultural engineering. The best men in the country, in their lines, have been secured to write the different courses. The list includes men from the Nebraska Agricultural College, Iowa State College, North Dako ta Agricultural College, Univers ity of Illinois, Kansas State Agricultural College and Onio State University, tiesides these are men in pratical work who have won special reputation in their particular lines. The man agement of the school has ex pressed itself as very much gra tified in the success they have had in securing these men to write the different courses. Saturday we spent most of the day on the cars. Friday was spent very enjoy Colorado Springs. Tnis locality is indeed one ol the wonderlands of Colorado. The "Garden of the Gods" and "The Cave of the Winds" make up one day's trip that is wonderfully interesting. All day Thursday and from Wednesday 7:80 P. M. we spent on the road between Colorado Springs and Minneapolis. Wednesday and Thursday. 22nd and 2:ird, found us shopping in our old familiar city of Min neapolis. Mr. Turner bought a hat, Mr. Morris a pin and my self a pair of socks. 'Twas all we needed. The ladies in vested in some collarettes and a I few postage stamps. The Rock island got our money and we were ready to go. Monday noon, Jan. 20, found us at the Sisseton depot waiting for our initial start on the "Hay Line Limited." No pleasure trip from Sisseton (the center of the universe is at all complete without a trip on the "Hay Line Limited." We recommend it, especially, as being just the thing for unmarried ladies of un certain ages. Mr. Morris was the last one of our party on board. Thisof course was expected because of the PIERRE, 8. D. Department of History (-itv members of the school board whose time and attention is largely given to school ma'ams and school interests. We saw no school ma'ams there that day, and the only rearon we could de tect for Mr. Morris being late was the presence of a few of his native friends—.lohn Starcloud, rpiu.!

Ten days it is since we separa ted ourselves from Sisseton and started for the land of sunshine and flowers. Ten days and we are still but little past the half way house. As the spirit moved we have journeyed, forgetting that which is behind and thinking not of the morrow. Our furs we sent back' from Minneapolis but our lighter wraps have at all times been suf ficient, quite sufficient for the twenty mile carriage drive we made at Colorado Springs, to visit Manitou Spring, the "Sara toga of the West" the "Cave of the Winds," high up on the mountain side, through the "Garden of Gods" whore nature in fantastic mood to build his playground has carved the brightly colored sandstone into wonderous shapes and figures, and on through "Glen Eyrie," where the millionaire railway magnate has converted the wild mountain glen, girth round by towering cliffs, into a bower of beauty and nestle there a home with all the luxuries of Fifth avenue. This is nature's wonderland— the home of Titan when the world was young. Great moun tain peaks there are lifting them selves, massive, gigantic into^the Lowell's Tribute to Lincoln Nature, they say. doth dote, And cannot make a man Save on some worn-out plan, Repeating as by rote For him her Old World mould aside she threw, And, choosing sweet clay from the breast Of the unexhausted West, With stuff untainted shaped a hero new.

Stu- pendous canons miles in length, whose rocky walls rise to tower a thousand feet above its lloor. Here too is Pike's Peak' tower ing in high sublime majesty above its fellows seeming to invite yet defy our approach, even as a hundred years ago it invited yet defied that intrepid explorer whose name it bears. Only a day we stayed a day when weeks might not suffice— but a day the memory of which will linger long among the beau tiful memories of earth. A day also at Canon City, the pioneer apple growing town and here we were fortunate indeed in being permitted to attend the Sabbath service in the Colorado penitentiary. Upwards ol lour hundred convicts were in attend ance, many ol whom joined in the songs led by a convict choir and band. There was indeed a scene to tug upon the heart strings—a terrible picture of ''man's inhumanity to man." Leaving Canon City the travel er over the Denver fc Rio Grande enters the Royal Gorge, the "mightiest chasm in the world traversed by steel rails." Here the walls of solid granite rise perpendicular 2ÜU0 feet (more than hall a mile) over a gup so narrow that at one place a bridge must be suspended over the rushing waters, on which our iron steel might find a resting place.
