is an island called ChnRi Is
land in the lake it has- a fine
salt mine on it. The water is
so buoyant that a person, while

The feet have a tendency to fly
up and the head to dip. After
a residence of six weeks, I left
Salt Lake City and took a tour

Abraham and Solomon were
certainly wrong when they ler
gal i zed the plurality of wives.
1 think one is enough to pull a
man s hair four or nve wives
would snatch him bald-headed
before you could say "Jack
Robinson." I 'saw men living
with their first wife's mother,
sister and aunt, married to each
of them for "time and eternity."
A Mormon lives on beter terms
with his mother-in-law than
any man in the world if she is
unmarried he weds her, and
that ends all further trouble.

"Be ye temperate in all
things" is a command given us
by Him who is higher than we.
It is a command which we
should obey in order to promote
our eternal happiness. No mat

a prey to surlering. The in

A Painful Rumor.
Under the above head we clip
the following from the Morristown
Gazette, which, if the rumor is
well founded, ia a timely warning,
and we re-echo the Gazette's ap
peal: "There cornea to us a strange
rumor from the west, to the effect
that in December, 1876. Chief
Justice Nicholson will resigu his
position as Judge and accept the
permanent appointment of Clerk
of the Supreme Court for the mid
dle division of Tennessee, for the
six years ensuing there dter; and
that, in the meantime, one of Mr.
Nicholson's sons will be appoint
ed to nil out the unexpired term
of the lamented Dunnington,
which expires December 1, 186
This is the rumor that reaches us,
and while we sinceiely hope it
may not be true, yet it is aecom
panied by such circumstantial
evidences of truth as to justify us
in mentioning if. If it is true,
then, under the Constitution . of
1870 no one c.m bi appointed to
fill Judge Ni bolson's place, nnce
it expresly provide?, in the sched

VOL XXIHO. 46,
A Wolf in a Baggage-Car.
The Atlanta (Ga.) Herald of
the 24th tilt, gives an account
of the difficulty Baggagemas
ter Hunt had on a trip from
Chattanooga the day previous.
j It says:
"At Chattanooga a man from
some Western State got aboard
the train. He had, chained a
bout the neck, a very large yel
low wolf. The brute appeared
to be docile enough while in
charge of his owner, althongh
to a stranger his fierce eye and
grinning teeth were sufficient
to keep one at a distance. By
considerable pulling and kicks
and jerks the man succeeded in
ettmg aboard and putting him
in the baggag car, where he
was chained in one corner. As
might be well imagined, the
biggagemaster did not want
this companion in his car alone,
and protested against the act,
but .was repeatedly assured that
the wolf was harmless and did
not attack any one. Thus the
baggagemaster's fears were al-
laved an 1 the train started.-
