That Satan and his host are decking whom they may destroy we learn from the Bible. And this is done by them influencing per- -' sons' th do wrong, hence it is by our own acts we : are condemned. We read of Mary Magdalene of seven devils, and of evil spirbeing possessed its I eing cast out of many others. Then we each have our guardian angels to watch and protect Us, and thef , V. V. Pratt says, uare our Kindred our fathers who have died aud risen again in former ages." Angels are sometimes resurrected beings, persons who once lived on this earth, but have passed to the higher spheres. Spirits are persons who have died and not yet been resurrected, or received their immortal bodies. History informs us that both have often ' returned to earth and made themselves known to many people. From the Bible we learn that angels appeared to Abraham, Lot, Hagar, Jacob, Balaam, Elijah, Joshua, Daniel and others, and many angel visits are recorded in the Isew Tes-- 7 fament, to Zachariah, St. Peter, Jdseph and Mary and Bt John, and in the Book of Mormon we-- read aagela appearing.o.AlmarAjuilek, have Nephi and Lehl, and in th is age messengers Cow-derto Smith.

George A. Smith, Jedediah M. Grant, and many ' other" who were dead. P. i.

It is a delightful cliniajte in winter,there is being scarcely a day but sunny and bright. I am sure Italy's skies cannot boast of a more beautiful blue. It now looks like a posey garden, all the fruit trees being in bloom, and asparagrus and pie plant has been ready for the table for more than a week. I have been very sick, but through the blessings of my Heavenly Father and faith and prayers in my behalf, am thankful to say I am gaining strength, and hope soon to be able to resume my every day duties.
