From a Mission

Last evening, the News received a call from Elder Wilford O. Ridges, of Ogden, who returned yesterday from a mission to the Southern states, on which he left home October 11, 1892. He was appointed to the South Alabama conference, his field of labor being in Florida, where he performed missionary duty, until released to return home. He enjoyed his mission and had excellent health. He found the people quite hospitable, and prejudice against the Latter-day Saints was diminishing. Elder Ridges goes to Ogden tomorrow.
