Lacking the Requirements

See the source image

When George W. Tolley was called to be bishop of the Orton ward, the ward was surprised for three reasons. What were the three reasons?
a.                  His age
b.                  He wasn’t married
c.                   He didn’t live in the ward boundaries
d.                  He was a Priest in the priesthood
Yesterday’s answer:
(A)                 Indians
Monday, April 26th—This morning about 3:30 an alarm was given. The guard on the northwest corner of the camp discovered some Indians crawling up to the wagons. They fired at them, when six Indians jumped up and ran. All hands were up and prepared for action in a few minutes, under their respective captains. Nothing more was seen of the Indians.
