The speakers were first Sister Zina D. H. Young, who had known Sister Kimball since the days of Kirtland; she was much affected while speaking, but paid an eloquent tribute of love and tenderness to her departed friend and companion. Bishop R. T. Burton spoke of her many virtues and of her magnificent capabilities, her motherly attention to all who needed assistance, whether of the household of faith or not, and of the great blessing she had been to all in the ward. Apostle H. J. Grant and President Angus M. Cannon each spoke in glowing terms of praise of her lifelong labors. President M.

"Jt is three years since we were visited in our Stake although last year we had Sister Gates, who came in the interest of the Y. L. M. I A President Annie R. Duke of Wasatch Stake said she had only been elected a short time, their former president, Sister Kinma Brown, having passed away she had been called to the position of president and hoped to fill the place with credit, but felt she knew very little as yet, but would try to do all .in her power. She had visited around the Stake since her appointment. Cassia Stake was reported by Sister Rol. lins; the president was a very capable In traveling around they had to go man. over a mountain to get to the other side where one pari of the sisters lived. Their Dresident had never vet missed attending one conference since they were organized. 1111 v.utftvft4vi4 -- vo-- . They were trying to do their part well. President Emma J.

We want to do our share and assist the General Society, we have been talking of a Stake dili-ge- nt granary." Star Valley was reported by Sister Sarah Ann Burton.

President Ann C. Woodbury of the St. George Stake, told the long distance they had to travel by team to visit the branches of the society in their Stake, some places were four hundred miles awav and it was quite 2n arddous undertaking to go all the way around. "We are just getting a good start in the silk inastry. We were to have had timber for a mill and the boys-wergoing to start off with their teams to haulit when we received word the mill was burned. Still we have every prospect of success this year, all have plenty to do Our children have not applied themselves to industrial pursuits in the past as they should, we must insist upon industrious habits in our children and the silk industry is one pursuit that will be helpful in this respect, and there is a. good prospect of sue - i- - - cess' ;. - , A done in the society in that locality, and the good spirit prevailing in their midst. She felt the importance of the organization and the great blessing it had been to the wo- men of Zion, earnestly urged the sisters to train their sons and daughters in the ways of the Lord and exhorted all to good works. President Elizabeth Fox of Oneida Stake was very much pleased with the instruction given by the leading sisters, spoke particularly of their efforts in storing grain, in Franklin they had over a thousand. bushels and a small granary, but had concluded it was best to put their wheat into the "grist mill and the mill pays them interest on the grain. Sister Fox spoke of the change made in their Stake so that it had not so many branches, some wards having been taken into the new Stake recently organized. She also urged the sisters to take the "Exponent" and to read it. expressed her own appreciation of its helpfulness; thought it wrong not to support our o wn paper.
