E. H. H. t 1 A FRIENDLY CAROL FROM FAR AWAY. Mrs. L. L G. Richards, My MO T'HER'S WORK. STAKE. w Di:ar Friend: Your "Branches" have reached me o'er mountain and dell, The pleasure they give me my words cannot tell. They bear to me fragrance from out the dim prst, Like the scent of sweet roses forever to last, The first time I met you comes fresh to my mind, Your smile was as sunshine, your greeting most kind. In the little white house by dear City Creek's stream It seems like remembrance of some pleasant SNOWKLAKE Lesson f. Are most punishments due to mistaken mtthods, or neglect in the past? Lesson II Is a punishment necessary? and what is its tbject? Lesso?i III. What faults in the parents often result in punishment for the child? Lesson IV. Which is the most important, the parlor or the room where the children m iinly live? Lesson V. How at the beginning of the day may we become in harmony with every- thing? Have we a special duty towards the naughty, and disagreeable child and its mother in our neighborhood? Committee, Lesson VI-- Amanda Peterson, am feasting again on "mv own mother's bread," At our little square table with snowy cloth spread; And oh! how I pity the girl or the boy, Who has no such picture of "mother's home joy." Many thanks, Lula dear, for remembrance kind; In reading your book, such lovid names I find, That with old friends I live again past days and years. Till my heart swells with fondness, my eyes dim with tears. So many have passed to the ' opposite side," And others are scattered so far and so wide! But in Father's own house vith its grand spacious dome Oh, "the gathering in" at the great "Harvest Home!" And, sister, if we are but faithful and true, To the duties assigned us, we'll enter there too; And drink from the fountains so rich and so rife. With "My Maggie," and others, "The Waters of Life." Again dear old Christmas is venturing near, Again is approaching the end f tne year; May the holidays find our dear Utah friends All well! is the greeting their sistyr ' Hope" sends. 1 What more cheering words could my brief message tell Than to say, as I can in truth, "We are all well!" One of God's greatest blessings bestowed from above, Is the gift of good health. Your sister in love. Sarah E. Russei.i.. Colonia Churichupa, Mexico Dec. 11, 1904. hoods. Sister Annie T.

This year it fell on Wednesday, November 16th. On this day the people repent of their sins, attend church, where the minister preaches a sermon on this subject, then they partake of the aacra-men- t. One service is held in the morning at 8 o'clock. The worshipers meet in the vestry room, but if there are too many for; that, they adjourn to the church. Here they have singing, prayer, and the sermon. At the close of the service, two ministers stand before the people, one administering the bread, the other the wine. The people pass around, each one partaking, after the usual prayer is said. In the evening the same program is carried out, and then the religious year is closed. It is a general holiday, and a fine day. Every one is out. in the afternoon, dressed in his best, walking with sweetheart or family. Down by the river, on the hard, white road that winds through the forest, many are walking leisurely along, the children plaj ing by the way. In this part of Germany Luther's doctrines still prevail, and the Reformed church holds the balance of power. Lydia D. Alder.
