The front page has a one column heading: "Utah and the Mormons". The article is over a full column in length and provides great details of the life-styles of the Mormon life, including the pros and cons of polygamy; how some of the wives get along and where others do not; a polygamist that needs to do all of his own cooking, cleaning, washing and even sleeps on the floor because his wives don't get alone. Also mentioned is a description of Brigham Young and also states "... Brigham is the favorite speaker, though he does not preach more than once a month. His sermons which I heard were very incoherent and illiterate..."
Other news of the day with several interesting advertisements (some are illustrated) throughout soon after the end of the Civil War. Complete in 4 pages, minor spine wear, otherwise in very nice condition.
