Description of the Sevier passing to its mysterious grave in the desert. Then we came to Cedar Springs, a place on the "Bench," looking out over a plain; near us, grassy enough to be entitled to be called ranch-ground, but wasting away into the Sevier Desert pure and simple. The little settlement itself was buried in fruit-trees.35 Our day's journey carried us to Fillmore, the county seat of Millard. Both names were tributes of gratitude from the Mor- mons to a man who treated them fairly when they risked being "improved off the face of creation." They had then neither silver nor gold, nor shares in railroads or other corporations to "tip" him with; but in those days American statesmen were not all in the market, and the benefits they conferred were sometimes given without an extended palm. Millard Fillmore's town and county represent no money value to him, but the recorded thankfulness of a people should be worth something to the man, as the days draw near in which he must reckon up his deeds as they will appear in the light of heavenly wisdom. From Cedar Springs we had an escort of citizens, on horse- back, all the way to Fillmore; and from this time I often noticed 35This is present-day Holden, although on a map of 1872-73, the name Holden appears but no Cedar Springs is to be found.

The town's name was changed from Cedar Springs to Holden in 1858 when a post of&e was established. It is curious that in 1872, Mrs. Kane would still call the town by its original name.
