Mr.'Ferguson has to my knowled|e -'visitediCardston .once. And I presume tier has alsb visited other Mormon settlements. But never has informed himself about tho people and their mq^ae of life.

Mr. Ferguson, knows better than to make the at^ tempt. Tho polygamy question Is a chestnut. . But Mr. Ferguson and his kind want |�to,stir up something.
