Description cherished tender thoughts of St. Thomas, where her rheuma- tism would certainly have been "thawed out." I thought her situation unenviable, but the next time I came by Kannarra, when the snow lay a foot deep on her doorstep, I pitied her more. A month before, her husband had been detailed to head that exploring mission among the Indians near the San Francisco mountain, in Arizona, which caused so much specula- tion in our Eastern newspapers.

Mrs. Roundhed got up without a murmur, kin- dled a fire, and prepared a meal for him. As she watched her saucepan she heard the conversation imperfectly. She raised her- self from her stooping position at the fire, and with one hand on her aching back, and the other suppressing a yawn, said, as quietly as if it were an everyday thing, "Well, Brother Gunn, I suppose this means another move for the saints?

And I am told that there is fine ranching ground only five or six miles off, fine coal, too, near and plentiful, and iron ore. We spent Sunday at Kannarra. My husband and children 118
