This paper aims to bring
the best reading to every fire
side. Reading is a great thing,
but it makes a big difference
what you read.
The Citizen brings, first of
all, the news not every tale
of crime or horror, but the im
portant news the news from
Washington and the State
capital, from our soldiers in
far off islands, from our neigh
bors everywhere. For the
young folks we have a story
and a Bible lesson; for house
wives, a few new ideas each
week which should lighten
their labors; for the farmer
some valuable hints which
will help him to make more
from his land and cattle.
We propose to get the best
ideas that can be found on all
such practical and important
matters and pass them around
imong our readers. The re
sources of Bcrca College arc
not for its students alone. The
editor of this paper can at any
time step into the largest Col
lege library in the State, and
he has engaged several of the
most distinguished instructors
in the College to take charge
of special departments in the
Caper. Those who arc visited
y The Citizen will know
what is going on in the world
Every week it will tell them
something worth knowing.
The Citizen is pledged tone
Farty. It is every man s mend,
t stands for the things which
bencht all temperance,
thrift, kindness, enterprise
and education. And we ask
all who believe in these things
to subscribe tor Hie Citizen.

Sinco tho Mormons havo boon In

tant to know tho secret of this phe
My twelve years' study of Mormon
ism, whilo laboring in the capacity of
a Christian missionary among the
Mormon people in LI ah, together
with sovornl months' exjiorionco with
the Mormon missionaries who woro
making "converts" in vnrious parts of
our country outsido oi utan, noting
thoir methods nnd their success, has
convinced tho writer that Mormonism
grows neither because of its merits as
a system of moral or religious truth,
uor nlono by appealing to tho deprav
ity of tho human heart.
If Mormon niissionorios woro hon
est enough to begin their efforts with
those whom they would "convert" by
tolling tho real truth alwut Mormon
doctrines nnd practices, they would
not make a singlo convert among de
cent peonle; but having been trained
in' tbo school of doception from their
infancy, they come into ths homes of
unsuspecting people to lend them in
to tho sa mo false ways in which thoy
have been reared. It is perfectly con
sistent for them to practice all sorts
of cunning and deception, as thoir
god and thoir prophets and their
teachers have set them abundant ex
amples in these lines from tho begin-
j niug. If the reader chooses to mako
n carelul study ot Juormomsm by lol
lowing up tho reading of this article
with a careful Htudy of the entire ser
ies of which this is tho beginning, lie
will find that this statement is not
any too strong, however extravagant
it may seem to him at first.
Let no ono, howevor, imagine for a
moment that tho writer means to
leuvo tho improssiou that tho Mormon
missionaries are not sincere in their
faith. If thoy were not sincere, they
could not succeed, as they do, in tnak
ing proselyte: but, being sincere,
thoy oeliove with all their hearts, be
cause thoy wore so trained, that tho
end justifies the means, nnd that any
sort of deception is justifiable, if it
only helps to " win converts and savo
souls," as thoy understand.
When Mormon missionaries coma
into a new community, they do not
sound a trumpet before them, as thoy
havo found out by long experience
that this does not pay. lney olten
aro in a community for soino time be
Corn tlinv mako themselves cenerallv
known. Finding Christian people
off their guard, they " spy out tho
laud " and find out all they can about
the condition of local church life,
who nro professing christians ana
who are not, how consistent are tho
lives oi tnoso who aro church mem'
bors, who aro lukewarm and indifTer
ent. As a rule thoy find little diffi
culty in proselyting those who are
woalc in tho faith, or dissatisfied with
the present church relations.
When thoy aro ready to "work" or
to "tract a community, thoy general
ly plan to visit systiinaticaliy from
houso to houso, aiming to call at least
three times at each houso at short in
tervals of a day or week or two, de
pending somewhat upon circumstan
ces and upon tho degree of interest or
repugnaco manifested by tho persons
On the first visit they aim to leave
a tract suited to tho "stato of miud"
tho person may bo in, provided they
havo had an opportunity to ascertain
what that "stato of mind" is. If the
way is open thoy will make a "friend
ly call." or oven an extended visit, up
on a person before presenting the
tract. Inoro aro generally two oi
them as they aim to go two by two,
"as tho seventies in the days of the
Saviour." Tho principal aim in this
first call or visit is to make themsel
ves agreeable and "becomo acquaint
ed," to "gain the confidence" of the
pro pot od "converts." If the Mormon
"elders" or missionaries were to call
upon you and find you off your guard,
they would mako themselves so agree
able that you would bo made to feel
that they woro about the most pleas
ant fellows that you havo over mot.
They would talk bo as to arrouso your
curiosity, but at the same time avoid,
aa far aa possible, giving you uuy
clear idea of their real character or
intentions. Tho object ot this meth
od ia to load you to welcome them to
your houso again in order to learn
more about thorn.
Tho loader of tho two gouerally in
troduces himsolt very pleasantly and
asks your uaino. Ho then introduces
tho other as "my friond Mr. So-and-so."
If you livo in a small town or
country placo whore you will at once
know them to hostraugors in tho com
munity, they will probably say: "Wo
