CONVENTION'S LAST SESSION.
It had when our fathers wcro young?
Is It lack of numbers? No; we have
not the character of our fathers for
good. Tho church needs quality f f
members, nioro than quantity.
"As the shuttle leaves behind Its
contribution, so we each have some
effect on those we meet. No one Is
a blank; each has some power for
good, or for evil on those with whom
"And In the weaving sometimes
the work Is interrupted by a broken
thread. So It is in life; but there
are two sides to the work the right
and tho wrong, and the side in the
sight of Rod shows no broken ends
If the work is done In the spirit -if
truth and desire for good. Only the
roses of the pattern arc visible.
"The weaver's work Is Inspected,
for God. the giver or the loom, has
a right to sec what It does. But If
wo do our best we will have no fear
of the Inspection. We will see God
as a father and not as a judge, and
be not afraid. "Which will he bo 5n
your sight: tho father or the judge?"
At the conclusion 01 mo nauru-is
a shnrt exnorlence meeting was
held, after which tho Christian En
deavor benediction. "God watch be
tween mo and thee while we are ab

Family troubles arc nsslgncd as
the cause. Joshua was a well-to-do
Indian, about 40 years of age, with
a wife and three girls, two of whom

Jim Joshua was one of tho moat
prominent Umntllla Indians living,
being a nenhow of Donnld McKav
the famous scout, who headed the
hand of scouts that captured Captain

ligent nnd honest, nnd his mitcido
was a surprlso in nil, doubly so, for
the reason that an Indian sulcldo is
an unusual occurrence, nnd only
other case of the kind In tho history
of the tribe being tho sulcldo of
daughter of Columbia Jim, on Me
Kay creek, several years ngo.
Joshua owned 160 ncres of rich
farming land near Cayuso nnd also

tho topee In tho summer time rather
than In the house,
He married a daughter of Little
Sparrow Hawk, and had lived
seemingly happy life, until recently
when thero arose rumors of trouble
In the Joshua home.
He was one of tho most Intelligent
Indians on the reservation nnd was
woll liked by tho whites and Indl
nus alike. Frank Curl, of this city,
has farmed his land for some time
and speaks In tho highest terms .'I
his landlord, tho dead Indian.
