It is said that one or two men who
had promistd horses for the Penni
man excursion took advantage of his
necessity at the last moment to put up
tho price. Such conduct will surely
react against a man and it will hurt all
of us if Penniman is forcedto"give up
these excursions or to have thorn start
from some other point than Berea.
The excursion yielded no profit last
year, and is likely to bo little better
thisyoar, but it is for tho good of this
region to have the excursions made.
They bring money here, and it ia a
good thing to hare some folks from
the cities make friends with our peo
ple and learn about the beauties and

In wolrr. Matlhw 7' It,
We shall all agree that right views
about reliarion are verv imoortant. Af
ter living many years in Utah, where
the majority of the people are mor
mons, I feel able to till something of
tne aoctnnea anu practices of this
false religion. And as I learn that
the mormons are sending their mis
sionaries into this region to convert
ou from Christianity to mormonistn,
am hero to sound a note of alarm.
I have here to ear to vou first of all
that the so-called mormon elders, who
are at work attempting to proselyte
Christian people, are acting the part
of wolves in sheep's clothing. They
do not tell the real doctrines of mor-
monisra nor reveal its practical work
ings. Thousands of poor people have
been deceived by them anu have gone
to Utah only to meet bitter disap
pointment, and thousands more who
have started out to follow these falso
uides have found that they did not
now what they were doing.
In the first place, tho mormon doc
trines are very different from those
suggested by the little card which the
mormon elders distnbuto from house
to house. For instance, the first ar
ticle roads, "Wo believe in God, tho
eternal Father, and in his son, Jesus
Christ, and in the Holy Ghost, Any
Christian might say the same, but the
question is what do they believe about
Uou and about (Jurist and about the
Holy Ghost. Tho Mohammedans be
lieve in God and in Jesus Christ and
in the Bible oven, but they also be
lieve iu the Koran, and the teachings
of the Koran practically set aside the
teachings ot the Bible, bo the mor
mons, though they claim to believe in
the Bible, beliovo also in the Book of
Mormon, which in a fraud and a
cheat, and in what they call the pres
ent day revelations, so that the head
men of the mormon church olaitn the
right anr day to sot aside the teach
ings of tne Bible.
The Mormons believe in a Ood who
who is only an exalted man, a God
who has tlesh and. who is really no
other than Adam. That is what Jo
seph Smith and Brigham Young both
taught, anu what is taught today.
I hay believe in Jesus (Jurist as a
man. lbov claim that he had three
wives when he lived in in this world.
They say that Christ and God are
two persons, in me same sense that
John and Peter are two persons.
And when they say they believe in
the Holy Spirit, they teach that it
is nothing but a form of electricity.
Another ot their doctrines is that
men cannot help sinning. In their
catechism stands this question, "Was
it necessary that Adam partake of the
forbidden fruit!" "Yes' "Did Adam
and Eve lament or rejoicet They re
joicod with exceeding great joy.
Another doctrine is that the mor
mon priests or head men are a part of
God and have the right to control the
people in all things, spiritual or tem
poral. They claim the right to direct
what business a man shall enter, and
how many wives be shall have.
In investigating the practices of
mormons, we must remember that
mormonism has only been in existence
u tihort time. The people who are
mormous today have been greatly in
fluenced by tho Bible and they are not
yet as bad as their children win be who
are brought up ou tnormouistn by it
self. I can only mention one or two
points. One is that tho priests control
absolutely the politics ot thoir people.
I Another is that thoy teach that it is a
