favored of the Lord, and wise beyond her years; a devoted Saint, a dutiful daughter, an affectionate wife and mother.

She was an active worker in Y. L. M. I. A., the Primary Association and Sunday School, and for several years held the office of Stake Secretary of Y. L. M. I. A. At the time of her death she was counselor to the president of the Y. L. A. of Snowflake, and assistant teacher in the Primary Department of the Sunday School.

There are but few whose entire record is so perfect.

She was always a peacemaker, possessed a self-sacrificing disposition, especially kind and respectful to the aged, and entertained the highest regard for the principles of the gospel.

Whereas, in the providence of a just Creator, our beloved sister, Sadie Smith Hulet, has been called from our midst by the hand of death; and whereas her influence was so ennobling, and her character so upright, that we can view her demise with no other than feelings of extreme sorrow.

Therefore be it resolved: “That in her death our society has lost a faithful and valued member, and a wise counselor" Resolved: “That we

emulate her noble example, and that we manifest our appreciation of her worth in these resolutions of respect.

Resolved: “That we present a copy of these resolutions to the bereaved family, with our sincere sympathy; that we enter a copy on the records of the Young Ladies Mutual Improvement Association of Snowflake, and that we also send a copy to be published in the You'NG WOMAN'S JOURNAL."
