I VISION Of THE REDEMPTION OF THE DEAD AS SEEN BY . PRES. JOSEPH F, SMITH I (From Doseret News) This "Vision of the Redemption o'f the Dead" was submitted, Octo ber 31. 1918. to the Counselors m the First Presidency, the Council ot the Twelve and the Patriarch, and by them unanimously accept ed. It is published in The Im provement Era for December, to which magazine The News makes acknowledgement for the privilege of here reproducing ii. Its publication at this lime will emphasize and make clear to those who attended the conference or have since read its proceedings, the significance of which Presi dent Smith's openiug remarks, Oc tober 1, when he said: , "I have not lived alone these five months. I have dwelt in tho spirit of prayer, of supplication, of faith, and of determination; and I have had my communication with tho Spirit of the Lord continuous On the third of October, in thq year nineteen hundred and eighteen, I sat in mv room nondering over the Scrip tures" and reflecting upon the great atoning sacrifice that was made by the Sou of God for the redemption of the world, and the great and wonderful love made manifest by the Father and the Sou in the coming of the Redeem er into the world, that through his Atonement and by obedience to the principles of the gospel, mankind might be saved. IVvniic i sat luus uiioiifcu, !. " reverted to the writings of the Apostle Petctr to the primitive saints scat tered abroad throughout Pontus, Gal atiar Cappadocia. and other parts of j Asia wherp the gospel had been preached after the crucifixion of the Lord. I opened tho Bible and read the third and fourth chapters. of the first epistle of Peter, and as I read I was greatly impressed, more than I had ever been before, with the following passages: For Christ also hath once suf fered for sins, the just for the un just, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in pris Which sometimes were diso bedient, when once the longsuf ferlng of God waited In the days of Noah, while the ark was pre paring, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. (1-Peter 3:18-20.) For for this cause was the gos pel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. (1 Peter 4:6.) As I pondered over these things which are written, the eyes of my un derstanding were opened, and the Spirit o the Lord rested upon me, and I saw the hosts of the dead, both , small and great. And there were gathered together in one place an in numerable company of the spirits of the lust, who had been faithful in the testimony of Jesus while they lived In i I, mortality, and who had offered sacrl- ft flee in the similitude of the great sac- ft rifice of the Son of God, and had suf- , p fered tribulation in their Redeemer's ; mortal life, firm in the hope of a glo- I rious resurrection, through the grace j ffl of God the Father and his Only Begot- j II ten Son, Jesus Christ. B I beheld that they were filled with j El joy and gladness, and were rejoicing , II together because the day of their Bit deliverance was at hand. They were ( II assembled awaiting the advent of the ! Son of God Into the spirit of the world, to declare their redemption II from the bands of death. Their sleep- ; bI ing dust was to be restored unto its If perfect frame, bone to his bone, and H the sinews and the flesh upon them.- the spirit and the body to be united never again to be divided, that they j might receive a fulness of joy. III "While this vast multitude waited and I conversed, rejoicing in the hour of l their deliverance from the chains of II death, the Son of God appeared, declar ed ing liberty to the captives who had I pt been faithful, and there hq preached III to them the everlasting gospel, the doc j trine of the resurrection and tlie re in t demption of mankind from "the fall, ;!fjj and from individual sins on conditions Ml of repentence. But unto the wicked he did not go, and among the ungodly J 1 1 and the unrepentant who had defiled i 3 I - themselves while in the flesh, his voice jlfj IB was not raised, neither did the rebel- ;li I - lioUs who rejected the testimonies and III the warnings of the ancient prophets !p3 behold his presence, nor look upon his la! face. "Where these were, darkness ,JH reigned, but among the righteous there Ml was peace, and the saints rejoiced in jjaj their redemption, and bowed the-knee and acknowledged the Son of God as : their Redeemer and Deliverer from all death and the chains of hell. Their ml countenances shone and the radiance j jJ from the presenco of the Lord rested I CUTICURA HEALS I PAINFULP1MPLES IJII On Neck, Forehead and Hll Scalp.

I marveled, for I understood that the Savior spent about three years in bis ministry among the Jews and those of the house of Israel, endeavoring to teach" them the everlasting gospel and call them unto repentance; and yet, notwithstanding his mighty works and miracles and proclamation of the truth in great power and authority, there were hut few who hearkened to his voice and rejoiced in his presence and roccived salvation at his hands. But his ministry among those who were dead was limited to the brief time in torvqning between tho crucifixion and his resurrection; and I wondered at the words of Peter wherein he said that the Son of God preached unto the spirits in prison who sometimes were disobedient, when once the longsuf Teving of God waited in the days of Noah, and how it was possible for him to preach" To those spirits and per form tho necessary labor among ihem in so short a time. And as I wondered, my eyes were opened, and my understanding quick ened.and I perceived that ;he Lord went not in person among the wicked and the disobedient who had rejected the truth, to teach them: but behold, from among the righteous he organ ized his forces and appointed messen gers, clothed with power and author ity, and commissioned them to go forth and carry the light of the gospel to them that were in darkness, even to all the spirits of men. And thus was tno gospel prcacneu to uie dead. And the chosen messengers went forth to declare the acceptable day of the Lord, and proclaim liberty to the captives who were bound; even unto all who would repent of their sins and receive the gospel. Thus was the gospel preached to those wlio had died in their sins, without a knowledge of the truth, or in transgression, having re jected the prophets. These were taught faith in God, repentance from sin, vicarious baptism for the remis sion of sins, the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands, and all other principles of the gospel that were nec essary for litem to know in order to qualiTy themselves that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. And so it was made known among the dead, both small and great, the un righteous as well as tho faithful, that redemption had been wrought through the sacrifice of tho Son of God upon the cross. Thus was it made known that our Redeemer spent his time dur ing his sojourn In the world of spirits, instructing and preparing the faith ful spirits ofthe prophets who had tes tified of him in the flesh, that they might carry the message of redemp tion unto all the dead unto whom he could not go personally because of their rebellion and transgression, that they through the ministration of his servants might also hear his words. Among the great and mighty ones who were assembled in this vast con gregation of the righteous, were Father Adam, the Ancient of Days and father of all. and our jrlnrimis Afntlmr "Rivo with many of her faithful daughters who had lived through the ages and worshiped the true and living God. Abel, the first martyr was there, and his brother Seth, one of the mighty ones, who was in the express image of his father Adam. Noah, who gave warn ing of the flood; Shem, the great High Priest; Abraham, the father 'of the faithful; Isaac, Jacob and Moses, the great law-giver of Israel; Isaiah, who declared by prophecy that the Re deemer was anointed to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that were bound, were also there. Moreover, Ezekiel, who was shown in vision the great valley of dry bones which were to be clothed upon with flesh to come forth again in the re surrection of the dead, living souls; Daniel, who foresaw and foretold the establishment of the kingdom of God in tho latter days, never again to be destroyed nor given to other people; Elias, who was with Moses on the Mount of Transfiguration, and Mai achi, the prophet who testified the coming of Elijah of whom also Mo roni spake to the Prophet Joseph Smith declaring that ho should come before the ushering in of the great and dreadful day of the Lord, were also there. The prophet Elijah was to plantain the hearts of the children the shadowing the great work to bo done in tho temples of the Lord in the Dis pensation of the Fulness of Times, for the redemption of the dead and the sealing of the children to their par ents, lest the whole earth be smitten with a curse and utterly wasted at his coming. All these and many more, even the prophets who dwelt among the Neph ites and testified of the coming of the Son of God, mingled in the vast as sembly and waited for their deliver ance, for the dead had looked upon the long absence of their spirits from their bodies as a bondage. These the Lord taught, and gave them power to come forth, after his resurrection from the dead to enter into his Father's king dom, there to be crowned with immor tality and eternal life, and continue thenceforth their labors as had been promised by the Lord, and be partak- ai'C rtf oil MnFCl'ror..

WILD HEMP TO BE CULTIVATED NEW HAZLETON. B. C , Dec. 4. I Wild hemp has possibilities for the manufacture of binder twine and its cultivation may become a part of Can ada's post-war Industrial program. The Indians of the coast and interior of central British Columbia have long been famous as carvers, weavers and boat-builders, but it was only recently that attention was nttracted to the fine rope which they make from wild I hemp. At Awillgate in the Bulkley valley near New Hazleton on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, there is a village of Indians who display remarkable skill in making rope from tho abundant wild hemp which covers the surrounding country. They have been making this rope for centuries by a method of their own and it is so strong that they use it for towing their heavily laden canoes up the currents of swift rivers. This is convincing proof of its stoutness. They also make twine and thread from the hemp but not in such quantities as in the days before they were able to purchase these articles cheaply from traders. The wild hemp closely resembles the common fire weed of the United States. oo PRINCE GOING TO ARGENTINA. LONDON, Dec. 3.
