Sinco tho Mormons havo boon In creasing nt such a great ratio tho past fow years, it is interesting nnd impor tant to know tho secret of this phe nomenal growth. 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 visited. 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 aro strangers iu this placo, hut havo come to stay aud we want to become acquainted with tho people.
