WHAT'S A MORMON?—A mormon is a liv-ing paradox—he says grace before a cotillion, swears in his sermons, selects his text indiff-erantly from the Bible, the Book of Mormon, an almanac, or the president's message, and is perpetually quarreling for the sake of peace. His religion is a joke, and he makes the best story teller a chief of the quorum. He as-sumes dignities, but has not the slightest re-spect for them—and the effect of his piety is apparently to put him on a level with the greatest reprobate of all times—in short he is the Latter Day Saint, or in other words, the last one you would think of calling a saint.—N. Y. Picayune.
