A Note on the Sources for the Lorenzo Snow "Windows of Heaven" Story

In the post about Ann Prior Jarvis's account of Lorenzo Snow's 1899 visit to St. George, I mentioned that I had a question about the sources for the story. 

I am serving in the Young Women organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so I do not attend the adult classes and I have not kept up with reading the lesson manual for the adult classes. This evening I looked at this year's manual, which is Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow. A recent lesson was Chapter 12: "Tithing, a Law for Our Protection and Advancement." The lesson — undoubtedly due to the excellent staff at the Church History Library — thoroughly sources the entire story. The list of sources includes the two newspaper articles shown here.

Deseret Evening News, "In Juab and Millard Stakes," May 29, 1899, 5.

Deseret Evening News, "Pres. Snow in Sunny St. George," May 17, 1899. 2.
The second article includes a name I couldn't decipher in Ann's account, so I fixed that in the previous post.
