What purports to be a description of the socrtt signs and grips of the Mormons and the neiret religious ceremonies of the Mormon Temples Is given In a book called "Mormonism Exposed," writ ten by Thomas Phillpp Marshall, of St. Louis, who says he was or,.a!ncd as a Mormon elder. Marshall s-ys hu was converted to Mormonism In Memphis in 1892 and that he was ordained a i elder wlthtn a year after his arri..i at Salt Lake C ty. He says that after his Initia tion at the Temple he wua convincid of the iniquity of Mormonism and that he has written the pamphlet against Mormonism to satisfy his con science. Of the secret signs and grips, he says: "The signs of the Aaronlc and Melchlsedoc priesthood are as fol lows: Upon shaking hands, place the thumb over the knuckle of the Index finger. pr "S it tin mo t liu the hollow between the index and middle fingers. The Melchiseduo priest extends the fore or index fin ger along the wrist, over the pulse of the friend with whom he shakes hands.
