Yesterday’s answer:
(D) Boating
The following from the pioneer journal of Lucy Meserve Smith:
  While I was in School at Provo two of the Brown boys and John H. Smith, were out of School one day, and the Provo River being very high and running very swiftly, they thought they could have a nice boat ride. They accordingly procured a Skiff and started out. They paddled to the opposite side. When their boat capsized the two Browns managed to get back into the boat, but John Henry sank and came up and was sinking the second time, when to the surprise of the people on the shore there came a great swell in the water without a breeze stirring and went right down under John H. lifting him up out of the water and throwing him up the high straight bank, and as he struck on his stomach the water poured out of his mouth very profusely.
  His Father (George A. Smith) was at Salt Lake City at the time, and at that moment as near as we could learn, a feeling came over him, that all was not right with his boys at Provo. He hastened to his prayer-room, and prayed to our Heavenly Father that his boys might not be swallowed up in the Provo River. When I got out of school, J.H. looked pale. I asked the cause and he related to me the whole circumstances also of his miraculous deliverance, saying I took one good drink while I was in the River. Said I, Jonny the Lord has a great work for you to do. He has already been on two missions to Europe, once 15 years ago, and once since he was a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, in 1884-5.
