Occupying the Space

Image result for newspapers
I don’t know about your newspaper, but down here in Utah it’s amazing how many advertisements occupy the paper over the weekend and around holidays. The Deseret News was not much different during the pioneer years of the church. Of its daily sixteen columns, what percentage of the paper was occupied by ads?
a.                  25%
b.                  50%
c.                   75%
d.                  90%
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Who he should marry
From the life of Brigham Young Jr.:   His father [Brigham Young] was a widower, with two little girls, Elizabeth and Vilate, in the year 1833. It happened that a fast and testimony meeting was held in Kirtland, and among those present were Elder Young and Sister Mary Ann Angell. The gift of tongues rested down upon Elder Young and the interpretation thereof was given by someone present. The Spirit bore record through that tongue that these two faithful souls were designed by God for each other. They were united in marriage, and Sister Mary Ann assumed the care of the motherless children.
