She had lived a christian life for many years and was fully prepared when death came to her. The writer of this tender memorial knew her for the past twenty years, and memory brings again her sweet and gentle life with its fullness of blessing and cheer for all as a hallowed benediction from the past.

She was always true to her christian profession and to her many friends and her own dear family. Her life was a busy one, and even while her feet were almost in the cold waters of death, she was tenderly concerned in the members of her family and friends and gave loving directions in many things that effected the comfort and happiness of the Her many friends will miss her greatly, but especially in the beauti where they spent the afternoon and game long to be remembered.

Midnight found us nestling in the arms of Morpheus, but it was for a few hours only. Echoing over the mountain in cadence sweet, came the familiar air of "Wake Up, Ladies; We're Going to Laramie."

In the past, several attempts have been made toward the granting of the nsual concessions by the railroads, but all efforts proved of but little avail. However, it remained for'the present officers of the association to make the much desired arrangements with the great overland route, the Union Pacific, as a con sequence of which one of the most pleasant trips ever by the North Central Kansas Editorial association left Concordia on the morning of July 17th for a week's outing at one of the most famous summer resorts to be found ou the American continent. A special car was placed at the disposal of the 61 excursionists and the trip to Denver was uneventful but very pleasant nevertheless. Upon entering the capitol city a number in the party had never seen a mountain and they insisted upon taking views from every window in the car and chirping the query, "Can you see the mountains?" Denver proved a lovely city and the day was spent in trolley rides, visiting various points of interest such as the United States mint, mining exchange and the handsome parks. Sunday morning, the 19th, we left Denver for Salt Lake.

Passing through Laramie the Beloit crowd was very agreeably surprised by Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Bracken and Dr.

and Mrs. Swigart entering the car and giving the party an urgent invitation to stop off and visit lhe city. This it was agreed to do on the return trip, and this extra part added to the program will long be one of the delightful memories of the week's outing. Leaving Laramie the Ames monument, erected by the Union Pacific, marking the highest point reached on that line of railroad, was passed, and at three o'clock on the morning of the 20th, we arrived iu the Mormon metropolis. Salt Lake was a surprise to many of us who were not expecting to behold such a beautiful city as we found tears, the words of sympathy spoken to the bereaved ones all bore evidence of Maggie and Mollie O'Donnel, Mabel the esteem in which she was held.

The mines on Cooper Hill, as said before, are very rich in gold, silver and copper ore. The mines in which Mr. Bracken is interested, are very valuable. They are being developed rapidly and are producing splendid results.

We again were under obligations to the Union Pacific for favors extended by the attaching of our special car to the fast mail train, -in unusual thing to bedone. The scenery between Salt Lake and Green River was beautiful, "The Devil's Slide," "Devil's Gate," "Witches Head," all being points of special interest.

The canyons, peaks and valleys were all much admired. At midnight we found ourselves at Laramie where an even dozen had made up their minds to stop and enjoy the hospitality of the city so kindly tendered by Messrs. Bracken and Swigart, together with W. R. West, I.

W. Gray and T. J. Morgan, and ably seconded by A. A.

Johnson of the Wyoming state university. Being met at the depot by Messrs. Bracken, Gray and West, we were escorted to the hotel, where we were told we could remain until 3 a. m. exactly two hours.

This was done in order to get an early start that we might visit Cooper Hill, the most promising mining district in Wyoming, and the one in which are located the properties belonging to the company of which Mr. Bracken is president. distance was some forty miles and the journey was made in an old fashion, Concord coach, with six horses. Col. E.

P. Snow of the miner's exchange. Joe West and Dr. Hamilton also accompanied the party besides the gentlemen previously mentioned. Mr.

Bracken had very thoughtfully prepared lunch before starting and no one was thus allowed to go hungry on the journey. At 2 p. m. we reached Morganville where a sumptuous dinner was awaiting our arrival. It was entirely unlooked for, in such a mountainous place, but it was a feast royal.

Various kinds of meats, fruits, salads, pastry, etc made up the-bill of fare. Mr. and Mrs. J. E.

Crossen are responsible for this elegant spread. Dinner over we resumed the journey, the ladies taking occasion to borrow all the sun-bonets in camp, and when the supply gave out, substituting therefore, wide brimmed hats belonging to some of the gentlemen in the party. The scenery here baffles our descriptive powers. The clear mountain streams, tumbling along in a hurried scramble to reach the lake below, the quaint and picturesque corduroy bridges, the tall, slender piues, seemingly touching the heavens and the beautiful mountain flowers, is visible to us now even at this remote distance. The climb up the mountain was more violent exercise than most of the ladies were "accustomed to, but enjoyable, nevertheless and soon the Albion mine, rich in gold and silver, was reached.

The tunnels were explored by means of the rays from the miner's candles. A snap shot was taken of the group while in the tunnel. Ore from the Albion assays as high as $700 to the ton. Valuable souvenirs of ore from the mines were given us. At this mine was enjoyed the novelty of eating wild strawberries and snowballing at the same time.

At 6 o'clock Platinum City was reached. The gentlemen of Morganville had cut a roadway through the forest, that the ladies might ride the distance, but the attractions were too great for most of them and with heavy staffs and good right arm they preferred to climb the rest of the way through a wilderness of pines. At Platinum, supper was awaiting, having been prepared by Messrs. T. J.

Morgan, T. C. Van Benthusen. Carl Stradley and E. G.

Morgan, assisted by Mr. and Mrs. William Hunter. Seventy-three mountain trout were consumed at one sitting without a struggle. A trout weighs nearly two pounds.

The secretary of the association is said to have dispatched two less than a half dozen, but then we promised to say nothing about it. Morganville and Platinum are both pretty towns. A medicinal spring is located at the former place. The climate is all that could be desired, cool in summer and mild in winter. Col.

Greenfield of Detroit, Michigan, is now stopping at Platinum, and from, his cozy log house a flag staff is erected from the top of which floats the stars and stripes, and below waved majestically another banner, white, with large painted letters thereon, "Bryan and Sewell! 16 to As we passed the cabin some of our more enthusiastic members, leaned out of the coach and cheered the flags. After supper, with Messrs. Stradley and Van Benthusen acting as guides, the shaft of the Emma G. mine was passed, and we finally reached the top of Cooper Hill. A rousing camp-fire, from seasoned pine trees, had been built and around it the Kansans gathered, for it was beginning to grow cold, 9,300 feet above sea level.

The inspiration to sing came upon the crowd, and the strains of "Nearer by God to Thee," were wafted on the evening breezes and sent thundering down the mountain sides. Some of the vocalists seemed short of breath, but the beautiful old hymn was finished in due time, without the disfigurement of the meter. Returning to the tunnel house of the Emma a short program was carried out, B. F. Bracken acting as master of ceremonies with dignity and grace.

In the present campaign, the newspa pie was the attraction that all wished to see, and immediately after breakfast the visitors betook themselves to this mammoth structure. It was certainly a wonderful piece of architecture and certainly impossible to describe on paper. The tabernacle was next visited, a building equally as startling as the temple. The guardian of the building takes great delight iu demonstrating the acoustic properties of the immense auditorium. The faint thud of a pin dropped upon a banister could easily be heard two hundred feet away.

The peculiar noise from the rubbing of the palms of the hands together could be heard audibly at this great distance. And the organ. We have not felicity of words to describe it. It has the distinction of being the largest instrument of the kind in the world. We certainly would dislike to contradict the statement.

And the music. Certainly it was divine. Never before did we ever listen to such harmony and sweetness at one and the same time. Prof. Braun's fingers fairly tingled to get hold of those ivory keys we know, but gentiles find but very little consideration in a Mormon church, hence the opportunity was not offered him.

Returning to the temple, our preponderance of inquisitiveness gained for us an admittance to the inside grounds. The lodge keeper was horribly surprised, when he realized what had happened and made the best of a bad situation by allowing us to feast our eyes for a few moments on various things that as a rule are not given over to inspection by visitors. He explained also the marriage customs. The doors to the temple are sealed and admission is gained only through an underground passage way, called the garden of Eden. The corner stone of the temple was laid April 6, 1853.

It was finished April 6, 1893. It is 200x 100 feet surrounded by a very high wall. The eastern tower rises to a height of 235 feet. It is built of native granite, every piece being numbered, that in case it should be removed it could easily be rebuilt. The Brigham Young residences, three in number, consisting of the Lion, the Bee Hive and the Amelia palace, were next visited, and" we passed under the world-renowned "Eagle gate entrance' to his private drive-way.

were next shown the spot where he lies buried, and passed it by without a tear of regret, for no one can visit these places without being convinced of the awfulness and sinfulness of the religion which he promulgated. Garfield Beach, reached only by the Union Pacific system, situated on the Great Salt Lake, came next as a favorite attraction. Salt Lake is 100 miles long, 60 miles wide, 4,218 feet above sea level, and salty, gracious! Yes, we tasted it. Bathing here is considered the finest in the world.
