Mrs. Will S. Evans and Mrs. A. Heintz
returned last Friday to Columbus nficr
a most delightful and interesting three
weeks visit -to Salt Lake City. Utah.
After attending the wedding of Mrs.
Evan's brother nnd sister these Indies
visited the many points o! interest in
and about Salt Lake City. They
listened to an Organ Recital given on
the grand pipe organ in the Mormon
Tabernacle enjoying thehigh class music
to the utmost, visited Ft. Dough's
which is about three miles from the city
at the foot of the mountains; went down
to Bingham Junction, that, going
through by night, the Bingham Com
pany's smelter of gold, silver and copper
they will not soon forget the gorgeous
sight. Bathing in the Great Salt Lake
and also in the Hot Springs at the Sani
tarium, and drinking in the pure moun
tain air from the Wasatch range of the
Rockies on the north and east, and the
Oquirah range on the south of the city
and inhaling the salty breezes from the
lake on the west refreshed both ladies
in both mind and body and indured a
healthy natnral sleep whijhgave to each
r.iey cheeks and a big appetite. Meat
and vegetables they think are of a finer
quality and much less expensive than
in Utah, however the mineral resources
of Uluh are above par "the half not
having been told." It was quite a radici 1
change to ride suddenly from the high
dry, alkalai climate of Utah into the
radiant green fields of rain-soaked Ne
braska, and as the ladies neared their
home that same old, old story of "Home
Sweet Home" got tangled up in their
hearts, aud the eyes of each twinkled
merrily with tears of love and joy as
they stepped from their train on to Ne
braska soil. Meeting their friends they
were ready to sing "Praise God from
whom all blessings flow."
