(d. Jan. 9, 1912, Urbana, 111.

''Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes, within a dream."

One loving her, said, "Such a blessed friendly baby."
On Monday morning the 27th of January, 1913, Mildred
Burrill Stone, in the early morning of the joy of life, entered into
blest release after three years of suffering, at Bloomington, 111.
She was buried in Woodlawn Cemetery at Urbana, 111., beside the
little daughter Mildred Irene, who went before, just one year.

"Oh, but alas for the smile of smiles that never but one face wore,
Oh ! for the voice that has flown away like a bird to an unseen shore.
Oh! for the face — the flower of flowers — that blossoms on earth
no more."

STORY OF THE "BASKET BABIES".

Rev. Sanford Burrill, with his wife [Martha Stewart, (dau.
of Samuel) and four children, in the interests of his church and
to further a land acquirement, went into the mountains of eastern
Oregon, in 1881. Here were born twin children in December,
with the snow and ice holding all the mountain world in thrall.
"Have you written home about the little ones?" the pioneer
mother asked her brother Robert ; and then came coma to end her
sufferings, and she went "Home". Bereft of a mother for his
children, the father put the few weeks' old infants into a basket,
and with her brother (Robert) and four little boys, journeyed to

the Pacific ocean, and took a steamer to San Francisco, where they
began the long journey overland to Illinois, sympathy and ten-
derness from fellow travelers being accorded them all the way.
The great floods of 1882 delayed the little party, and they were
three weeks in reaching the end of their journey, where the
well-cared-for, smiling infants, crept into the hearts of those who
adopted them for their own, lovingly rearing them to educated
manhood and womanhood. Rev. Burrill, taking his four boys
and niece Mary, returned to Oregon with Robert.

Note: — Mr. Burrill and his wife's brother, Robert Stewart, were
assisted in caring for these babies on their long journey, by any ladies
who chanced to be fellow travelers on boat, or train. These services
were voluntary. "In-as-much as ye have done it unto one of the least
of these, .... ye have done it unto Me."

roll of the prairie to the west, and sloped to the rivulet that
bordered the edge of the Mashaw Montuck, the Indian name for
the "big grove" that lay, a dark and beautiful background, to the
wild prairie, to the front for eighteen miles. The boundless
extent of billowing grass, where "boomed" the prairie chicken,

rich with acres of blue-bells and May-apples, the lowlands yellow

hazel; the wonderful white sanded springs where the children
drank and watched their mirrored faces; here the "prairie fires
swept from long distances, catching the tumble weeds and flinging
them aloft, where they burst into balls of fire and terrified, while
they fascinated, the watchers, as the red flames sprang toward

From "Who's Who in Am."

JUDGE ROBERT STEWART TAYLOR OF FT. WAYNE, IXD.

''The oldest member of the Mississippi River Commission,
the organization which has complete charge of all the work upon
that mighty stream, Judge Taylor was appointed in 1881 by
Pres. Garfield to succeed Gen. Benj. Harrison, who had been
elected U. S. Senator from Ind., and who later became President.

The work of the Mississippi River Commission, consists of
keeping the channel of the stream open, building levees, and by
other means keeping the surrounding lands from being flooded.
To do this necessitates the employment of a vast army of men,
and Judge Taylor, in company with other men of the Commis-
sion, makes a number of trips up and down the river each year.
He is a leading lawyer of Indiana, and always canvasses the
State in Presidential campaigns, giving great aid to the Repub-
lican cause. He was one of the Monetary Commission in 1897,
and when a candidate for the U. S. Senate in 1899, he carried the
conservative vote of the State, when defeated by Beveridge.
Of him, his sister Esther writes in 1893, "Stuart had a very
delightful day at Cincinnati some time ago, finding the house we
lived in, and standing with uncovered head, where over forty
years ago he played as a child. He is a charming story teller,
and fills the house with laughter and joy; such a strong, sensible
and sunny nature he has, even while carrying tremendous care
for his different cases."

"After a life spent in active work for humanity, Mrs. Esther
(Taylor) Housh passed away to the higher life beyond. Possessing
a charming personality, and rare qualities of the heart which

endeared her to her family and friends, she also drew many to
her by her intellectual vigor, and deep poetical instinct. She
consecrated herself to earnest, helpful work, for the uplift of
the unfortunate and erring, and by her example, showed that even
this life held much that was beneficent and helpful to all. Her
cheerful, hopeful serenity even amidst severe trials, made a
marked impression on the minds of those who knew her. With
clear spiritual insight, she recognized that religion was an attri-
bute of the soul toward God, not a creed, a life, a litany, a service,
and a sacrifice, nor a spectacle, and she exemplified this in her
daily life.

"The immediate family are her son, Frank Ellsworth Housh,
and her brothers and sisters, Judge R. S. Taylor, and Samuel
R. Taylor, and Mrs. W. L. Hulse and Isaac N. Taylor of this city,
and Mrs. Bertha T. Rehm of Kansas City. She was born at St.
Mary's, near Cincinnati, Ohio, and lived a short time in Ft.
Wayne, Ind., and later removed to Louisville, Ky., where she
