Page 6 begins with a lengthy article headed: "A Mormon Anniversary" "The Journey of the Saints to Utah" "Gulls, Rattlesnakes, and Deceitful Guides as Divine Interpositions--The Story of the Founding of Salt Lake City", taking over a full column.
Equally as nice is a; lengthy back page article headed: "An Inventor's Workshop" "What Edison Has Accomplished--His Carbon Lamp and its Latest Modification" "Speedy Introduction of the Light Promised--His Various Patents and Designs--The Electric Railway". This article takes nearly two columns with much detail (photos show just the beginning).
