Their offices are cleaner, too, and gay with flowers, and those who for their sins are compelled to wait for a train at a wayside station often appreciate this difference. Still, women yield to one dissipation men are less apt to indulge in, and it was a characteristic that betrayed the sex of the teleg- rapher at the place we had left in the morning, when Mrs. Hunt remarked to her sister-wife that evening that "Parowan has been called by St. George three times without answering. She will go to meeting!" Mr. Hunt did what he could to help, poor fellow, and poked his way about with a long stick, as he directed his little boys in the barn and garden.

The hotel was located at the present First East Street and Harding Avenue.
