HOLY CITY NOW F(RGOTTEN

siderable importaie, 1
- The Wisconsin State Historical so
elety Is preparing a history of the
Mormons who settled in and around
the state during the middle of the
nineteenth century. The history will
contain much new material concerning
the early Mormons who settled in Illl
nois and built their sacred city of
Nauvoo, just above Keokuk.
After the death of Joseph Smith,
leader of the Mormons, in 1844, one
of the claimants to the succession was
James J. Strang of Burlington, Wis.,
who was- -convertc(i to Modrmonisin In
1843 by missionaries who came to Bur
lington. Strang soon gained a strong
following and estitblished a holy city
at Vorce, where his followers made
their headquarters, sent out mission
aries and became successful rivals to
the Brighaim Young movement in
About 1849 Strang moved his follow
ers to Beaver island in Lake Michigan,
where he built a new sacred city, and
had his headquarters from 1849 to
1856. The city of St. James was the
most important between Detroit and
Milwaukee. Strang met death at the
hands of two of his followers. le left
no successor, and tihe Gentiles, profit
ing by the confusion, descended on hii
domain an( looted it. The inhabitants
were forced to leave with such of their
possessions as they could carry, and
were deported by boat to Chicago and
Milwaukee. The church built up by
Strang was thus destroyed. It is esti

SUGAR FROM TREE AND FIELD
Years Ago People Got Sweetening Ma.
terial From the Maple and the
As long ago as 1791 Dr. Benjamin
Rtush put before the Philosophical so
ciety of Philadelphia an earnest pro
posal to use maple sugar, pointing out
that "tor n great number of years
many hunth'ed private fanilies in New
York and Pennsylvania have supplied
themiselves plentifully with this sugar
during the whole year."
The year before that the United
States had bought over 17.500.100
pounds of brown sugar, and more than
200,000 pounds of other varieties from
the West Indles. Seven years after
Doctor Rush made his appeal the
brown sugar importation amounted to
nearly 07,000,000 pounds, and the loat'
sugar exceeded 20,500.000 pounds. At
that time sonebody in Philadelphia
succeeded in obtaining sugar fron wa
terimelons, getting half a pint of sirup
by gradually boiling the strained pulp
and juice of a melon that weighed 14
pounds. This led J. 11. Bordley, an ag
ricultural writer, to compute in a hook
published in 1801 that an acre of wa
termelons would yleld $143 worth of

Influenza, now prevalent at Camps
Grant, Custer and Dodge and at Fort
Sheridan may spread to other camps

Surgeon General Ireland.
During the week ending .January 16

however, ,were reported among the

the ttwo diseases will reach the high
levels of 1918.
