Title The Broken Parasol
Description THE BHOKEN PARASOL Lillian Peterson (deceased) Mayfield, Utah 8W+3 Non-Professional Division Honorable Mention Short Story "Oh! Hy Little girls, what have you teen doing? Have you "been up in mother's old chest, spoiling hec oia relics? There is my moat cherished or all, broken to pieces!" "Why, that old, faded, ragged parasol! What is that good for? Why do you cry because I have broken the handle? Look, the silk is all faded and rotten." "Gome out into the garden, dearies, ani I will tell you a true story about that most cherished of all my possessions." Long, long ago> away off in dear old Deimark, lived a fine, intelligent man with keen blue eyes and a sharp witty tongue. His broad, high forehead shoved his reverence and trust in a Supreme Being, while his genial smile bespoke the love of his fellownen. This man's name was Peter, and he was beloved by all «ho knew him. For his wife, he had a mild, sweet, lovable girl named Dorothy. She, too, was very religious, and as the little ones came to them, they were very anxious that they should know the ways of life and salvation• When Mary was eight days old, she was taken to the Priest to be christened and baptized. For long months they had dreamed of this wonderful day. At last it came, and when the ceranony was performed, they felt that something was wrong. It did not correspond with the teachings of the Bible. About this time everybody seemed to be dissatisfied with the teachings of their ministers and were going from one church to another, trying to find the best. This discontent lasted until Peter and Dorothy had five children. One day their friend Rasmus came in very excited. He said, "Have you heard the news? Some missionaries from Aaerica, calling themselves Hormons, are preaching in the next town, telling the people that a young fourteen-year-old boy has had a vision. The Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ had come to him and given him a golden book with a new religion written on it." Peter and Dorothy became very interested and decided that Peter and Rasmus should go to the next meeting and hear for themselves. As they went, Dorothy sought the Lord in prayer and asked that they might fmov the truth. -Wft-
