Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   The Keyboard
From the life of James Ephraim Daniels:   Elder Daniels has always taken great interest in musical matters. He was for thirty-five years chorister of the Church choir in Provo, which gained quite a reputation under his leadership. During the time he conducted the choir he was under the necessity of providing some simple means by which the organ accompaniment could be had, as organists were very very scarce in those days. He therefore invented a transposing keyboard, as instrument which by being properly adjusted could be made to play in any key desired. This invention was afterward sent away together with the organ upon which it was used, and a number of years afterward was patented by a man in Montana, and Bro. Daniels was deprived of the honor of its invention.
