He Would Have Died in the Place of Hyrum


Because of apostasy and the shuffling of Church leadership, who would have died in the place of Hyrum Smith at Carthage?

a.      Sidney Rigdon

b.      Oliver Cowdery

c.       David Whitmer

d.      Martin Harris

Yesterday’s answer:

(C)   By bicycle

The following from the journal of David L. Davis August 8, 1884: Myself and four other bicyclers started on a trip by bicycle to the Yellowstone Park. We had made arrangements with Messrs. Bassett brothers of Beaver Canon [Canyon] to have a team of four horses and a large wagon ready with our supplies, which we had previously shipped to that point by rail; and about 1 p.m. of the 9th we mounted our wheels and rode down the canon and came to a camp in the evening on Kamas creek about 21 miles. This being a good fishing stream, we stayed until 4 p.m. next day. Then we rode as far as Shonden and came to camp there about 8 p.m. on the 10th and caught some more nice fish. On the evening of the 11th we camped at Rays on the Snake River in a beautiful pine grove.

   [On the] 12th pulled out before breakfast and made Henry’s Fork, a beautiful stream of trout, it being the outlet of Henry’s lake and the head waters of the Snake. At noon we camped on the Jefferson. . . . Next day, we entered Fire hole basin about 11 a.m. We visited every place of note in this noted place, and saw most of the large gysers play. It is a very grand sight and calculated to inspire one with fear and awe. We spent one day at the Falls and a short time at the Lake and arrived home safely after a most pleasant trip of 16 days duration without any accident. . . .
