THE FUTURE OF THE MORMON
the January Century, the
"Legal Aspects' of the Mormon
f roblem" are discussed bv Arthur
who concludes as
The failure of the attempt to
break up the Mormon system by
Congressional legislation does not,
by any means, show that the Mor
mon system will ultimately prevail
in Utah. The operation of natural
causes Is certain, in the long run,
to sap the foundations of polyg
amy. The railroads have already
brought the Territory into commu
nication vfith the rest of the coun
try, and the development of the
mines must ultimately bring in a
large Gentile population almost
altogether male. A strong ten
dency in the direction of marriages
between Gentile men and the
daughters of Mormon parents must
spring up. Indeed, this is said to
show itself already. There is no
surplus of women in the AVest
from which to recruit polygamous
households; the birthsvof the two
sexes are always very nearly equal
and the Mormon population is no
longer being -rapidly increased
from abroad, as it was in the times
of the early persecution of the
church. It is now stationary, or
nearly so, and being rapidly hem
med in by a community having a
social system which all experience
shows is the only one permanently
adapted to modern industrial life.
As the Territory fills up, and the
Mormons are brought more and
more into relations with the rest of
the world, one of the strongest in
ternal causes of disintegration will
unquestionably be the sense of
shame operating upon the younger
female generation. In the natural
course of things, some of the
daughters of Mormon kouseholders
must marry Gentiles, and others,
who do " not marry outside the
church, will bo made keenly aware
that they are surrounded by a
community which regards their
position as a, degraded one. As
long as they could keep them
selves separated from tho rest of
the world, this Gentile feeling was
of Tery little consequence to them.
It did not affect them in their daily
life; it was something remote from
them, which they did not even
need to disregard. This cannot
continue forever, and indeed a
change must begin, if it has not be
gun already, as soon as the sur
rounding inonogamic Gentile sys
tem of marriage has a fair oppor
tunity to enter into competition
with its rival. Under these circum
stances, there is nothing to be done
with tho Mormons but to let them
alone. Persecution has been tried,
and has only served to strengthen
and increase them. Law has been
tried, and has proved of no use,
because it has not been enforced.
From the circumstances of the
case, it cannot be.
A Stranger's Mistake.
A Western merchant, who want
ed to do some sight seeing and
buy his fall stock at the same time,
entered a dry-goods jobbing-house
on Broadway, and accosted the
first person he met with:
'Are you the proprietor here?"
"Not exactly the proprietor,"
was -the reply; "at present I am
acting as shipping clerk, but I am
cutting my cards for ju partnership
next year by organizing noon
prayer-meetings in the basement."
The stranger passes on to a very
important personage with a dia
mond pin,.and asked:
"Are you the head of the house?"
"Well, no; I can't say I am at
present, but I've hopes of a part
nership in January. I'm only one
of the travelers'just now, but 1 am
laying fof a$2,000 pew in an up
town church, and that will mean a
quarter interest here in less than
The next man had his feet up,
his hat back, and a 20-cent cigar
in Iiis mouth, and he looked so
solid that the stranger said:
"You must run this establish
ment?" "Me? Well, 1 may run it very
soon. At present I am the book
keeper, but I am expecting to go
into a church choir with the old
man's darling, and become an equal
The stranger was determined
not to make another mistake. He
walked around until he found a
man with his coat off and busy
with a case of goods, and he said
"The porters are kept pretty
busy in here, I see?"
"Yes," was the brief reply.
"But I suppose you are planning
to invest in a gospel hymn-book
and sine: the old man out of an
eighth interest, aren't you?"
"Well, no, not exactly," was the
quiet reply; "I'm the old man
And all the stranger said, after
a long minute spent in looking the
merchant over, was:
Well, durn my buttons!"
Dr. William Roberts, in an;
interesting series of lectures on di
gestive ferments, published in
the Lancet, says: The practice of
cooking is not equally necessary
in regard to all articles of food.
There are important differences in
this respect, and it is interesting
to note how correctly tho experi
ence of mankind has guided them
in .this matter. The articles of
food which we still use in the un
cooked state are comparatively
few, and it is not difficult in each
case to indicate the reason of the
exception. Fruits, which we con
sume largely in the raw state, owe
their dietetic value chiefly to the
sugar they contain; but .sugar is
not altered by cooking. Milk is
consumed by us both cooked and
uncooked, indifferently, and ex
periment justifies this indifference;
for I have found on trial that the
digestion of milk by pancreatic
extract was not appreciably hast
ened by previously boiling the
milk. Our practice in regard to
tho oyster is quite exceptional,
and furnishes a striking example
of the general correctness of the
popular judgment on dietetic
questions. Tho oyster is almost
tho only animal substance which
we eat habitually, and by prefer
ence, in the raw or uncooked state,
and it is interesting to know that
there is a sound physiological
reason at the bottom of this pref
erence, ine lawn-colored mass
which constitutes the dainty part
of the oyster is ils liver, and this
is little else than a heap of glyco
gen. Associated with the glyco
gen, but withheld from actual
contact with it during life, is its
appropriative digestive ferment
the hepatic diastase. The mere
crushing -of the dainty between
the teeth brings these two bodies
together, and the glycogen is at
once digested, without other help,
by its own diastase. The oyster
in the uncooked state, or merely
warmed, is in fact, self-digestive.
But the advantage of this provis
ion is wholly lost by cooking, for
the heat applied immediately de
stroys the associated ferment, and
a cooked oyster has ,to be digested
like any other food, by tho eater's
own digestive powers.

W.P.Foiter, in January Centnru
When the hunter has found a
rubber tree he first clears away a
space from the roots, and then
moves on in search of others, re
turning to commence operations
as soon as he has marked all the
trees in tho vicinity. He first of
all digs a hole in the ground hard
by, and then cuts in the tree a V
shaped incision with a machete, as
high as he can reach. The milk is
caught as it exudes and flows into
the hole. As soon as the flow
from the cuts has1 ceased, the tree
is chopped down, and the trunk
raised from the ground by means
of an improvised trestle. After
placing large leaves to catch the
sap, gashes are cut throughout tho
entire length, and the milk care
fully collected. When it first ex
udes the sap is of the whiteness
and cousistence of cream, but it
turns black on exposure to the air.
When the hole is "filled with rub
ber it is coagulated by adding hard
soap or the roots of the mechvacan,
which have a most rapid action,
and prevents the escape of the
water that is always present in
fresh sap. When coagulated suffi
ciently, the rubber is carried on
the backs of the hunters, by bark
thongs, to the banks of the river
and floated down on rafts. The
annual destruction of rubber trees
in f:rtln,liln Jo fori- itrnqt inl Ytn
. , J '
industry must soon disappear alto-'
nether, unless the Government.
puts in force a law that already j
exists, which compels ,the hunters
to tap the trees without cutting
tliem ClOWII. It ttllS law Were
strictly carried out there would be
a good opening for commercial
enterprise, for rubber trees will
grow from eight to ten inches in
diameter in three or four years
from seed. The trees require but
little attention, and begin to yield
returns sooner than . any other.
These that yield the jrreatest
amount of rnbber flourish on tho
banks of the Simu and Aslato
rivers. The value of tho crude
india rubber imported into the
States ' annually is about $40,
000,000. juo ui me tun vniuic papers

Ths Value of Life.
One of the interesting speciila-
j tioti recently started in England
)MS for a subject the present value
, .... , ... . ,
'of lilu as compared with its value
when "mankind did not spend half
' of its time in studvinf the nmhlnm
of ptolonging life. One of the
leading London pliy&icians declares
that men were happier and better,
and lived nobler lives, before the
pursuit of health and the yearn
ings for longevity became a craze
almost amounting to madness, and
before the questions what to oat,
drink and to avoid, and what to
wear, and how to live, by what
means to avoid infection, to keep
off disease, and to escape death for
a few weary and wearied years,
were the all-engrossing ones. An
other urges that the "survival of
the fittest," so far as the race is
concerned, is a great mistake; and
that humanity in general would bo
a great deal better off if there
were less of the loving labor now
expended in prolonging tho lives
of the weak, diseased and crippled.
There is no danger that either
of these views will find general
acceptance. The world has be
come so accustomed to studying
the laws of health and long life,
and enjoys the study so much,
that it is not likely to abandon it,
even for the purpose of bringing
back the happy days when then
didn't care anything about diet
and drainage and pure air. There
is just as little danger of any re
trogression in thi! mailer of caring
for the sick and helpless. It may
be worse for the race, in one as
pect of the case, to prolong lives
of suffcring-iruu'tonntcrfcre' with,
the natural process which extin
guishes fjic weaklings in a few
generations. But what the race
loses in this way it is repaid an
hundred fold in the cultivation and
expansion of its finer emotions.
