One cannot help calling to mind the prophecies the "Daughters of Zion," with which students of the Bible are familiar. Not that one would wish for a moment to curtail real enjoyment, for youth is the time for enjoyment; but frivolity and vanity and love of finery, often, one might say almost invariably, leads the mind astray, and frequently causes disaster and ruin; sometimes irremediable. Those who are aware to what these excesses tend should not hesitate to lift a warning voice, whether their admonitions are heeded or not, for, if those who realize the situation refrain, from warning the young and thoughtless of the dangerous consequences of.;such a course taken in extremes and excesses, because it seems an unpleasant duty, it may be difficult to justify themselves hereafter, and will not one's conscience itself condemn such lack of moral courage?

Phey have not listened to this counsel only in part. To he sine, very few of the women of our faith have gone to extremes in these directions, hut there seems now to be a crisis in these affairs, and who knows to what it may lend! We have been warned and forewarned of that which would befall those who are "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, "and it is a fact that those . , well-know- n who are partakers of things not good for them, will be partakers also of the plagues that follow disobedience. Therefore, it behooves the women of Zion to lift up their voices in season (if not out of season) in warning, that the youth of Zion, of whom we are all so justly proud, may attain to that excellence in all things that shall entitle them to the blessings and fulfillment of promises made to those who for the sake of worshipping God according to the dictates of their own consciences came cut from among those who persecuted them into, this then desert land where they could be at peace. ing all ; ;ve so-tha- : re- OBITUARY. 1 l1111 m i 1 1 11 i 1 1 .
