In Memoriam.

The death of Harley Eugene Colgrove has brought the bitter cup of sorrow to his aged mother and brother and sister and a host of relatives and warm friends.

After a lingering illness of over three months duration, death came as a relief on the morning of Tuesday at his home where he was born August 10, 1874.

Funeral services were held in the ward chapel yesterday conducted by Bishop P. L. Brunson. The speakers were Bp. Thomas C. Callister, Joseph Beeston and James A. Kelly, who all had known the deceased from his childhood and spoke of him as a young man with many excellent traits of character. The sweet solemn music by the choir and duet by Mrs. Estella Day and Dora Anderson touched every heart.

To the broken hearted mother, brother and sister who sit in sorrow where his footsteps shall never again find echo we extend the sympathy of one who knew him as the soul of honor and an industrious and good citizen.
