If Pioneers had Ingredient Labels it Would have Made the List

Prior to sugar manufactured from Sugar beets in Utah, what was used in the production of molasses (molasses was a key ingredient in the production of candy)?

a.      Thistle roots

b.      Sego Lily roots

c.       Potatoes

d.      Pumpkins

Yesterday’s answer:

(C)   The bishopric and Acting Teachers

For many years, the methods for blessing and passing the sacrament varied from ward to ward. Often, bishops personally administered the sacrament, both in their own wards and in the settlement-wide sacrament meetings. One bishop noted in 1874 that “at 2 PM I administered the sacrament in the New Tabernacle assisted by my 2 council[ors] and [Acting] Teachers.” Some wards blessed bread and water first, then passed both at the same time. In other wards, bishops decided “to bless the bread and water at the Sacrament according to the universal custom” instead of “blessing both before distributing either.”
