The author, W. B. Hill has been an evangelist among the early settlers of the Northwest for many years, and has passed through the varied experiences of pioneer life; and as his first publication of some of these experiences has been so favorably received by its readers, he is encouraged to revise and enlarge his book, and send it out on its mission once more, hoping thereby that its power for good may be increased, and that many may be led to Christ, the fountain of life, and to rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Chester L. Rogers, W. B. Hill's grandson and son of Beulah, has also written a book. Chet Rogers passed away in 2001. He begins his account of life from 1915, with his parents, and carries the reader through the time before the war, through World War II and finishes after the war. I have had the personal pleasure of knowing this wonderful, warm and cordial fellow. I especially remember the wonderful tribute to him and his wife Shirley by their children on their 50th wedding anniversary.

In Parting

Death of Elder W. B. Hill;
HILL - Fell asleep at College View, Neb. May 5, 1905, Elder W. B. Hill, in his sixty-third year. He was conscious to the last moment, and was ready and willing to go to rest. He had been ill for months, and had been in Colorado, where he improved in health to a good degree. He returned to his home at College View, Neb., and was planning to remove his family to some place where he could enjoy better health; but while at home he was taken with pneumonia, to which he succumbed after a few days. Many friends attended the funeral, among whom were some who had been led into the truth through the faithful labors of the deceased. Tim. 4: 6- 8 was used as the basis for the remarks of the funeral service, conducted by the writer, one of his converts. Seven living children and a widow are left to mourn their loss. Written by J. J. Graf

"God has given me light regarding our periodicals. What is it? He has said that the dead are to speak. How? Their works shall follow them. We are to repeat the words of the pioneers in our work, who knew what it cost to search for the truth as for hidden treasure, and who labored to lay the foundation of our work. They moved forward step by step under the influence of the Spirit of God. One by one these pioneers are passing away. The word given me is, Let that which these men have written in the past be reproduced.

Let the truths that are the foundation of our faith be kept before the people. Some will depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils. They talk science, and the enemy comes in and gives them an abundance of science; but it is not the science of salvation. It is not the science of humility, of consecration, or of the sanctification of the Spirit. We are now to understand what the pillars of our faith are, -the truths that have made us as a people what we are, leading us on step by step." (Ellen White, 1905, Counsels to Writers and Editors, pages 31, 32)
