PROSPECTUS OF THE CONTRIBUTOR, Representing the Young Men and Women of Utah. VOLUME THREE. THE Third Volume of the Contributor will commence with October, 1881, number. Each number will contain Thirty-two Pages of choice reading matter. The volume will make a fine library book of nearly Four Hundred Pages. The success attending the first and second years of this magazine justifies the prediction that the new volume will not be excelled by any home publication. The following are a few lead- ing features that will characterize Volume Three: SERMONS AND WRITINGS OF THE PROPHET JOSEPH SMITH. These will appear in each number, being care- fully selected from the discourses and composi- tions delivered during the last four years of the Prophet’s Life. They are upon a variety of im- portant doctrinal subjects, and are full of light and truth, communicated in the most thrilling sentences, which distinguished the delivery of their inspired author. Every Latter-day Saint should be familiar with the sayings of the Prophet. In connection with the sermons will be pub- lished short Biographical Sketches of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. Illustrated with TWO. MAGNIFICENT STEEL PLATE ENGRAVINGS. These engravings are said by the most compe- tent judges to be the finest and most accurate portraits of the Prophet and Patriarch ever pub- lished. They are full page pictures, printed in the most artistic manner, and are alone worth half the price of subscription charged for the magazine. The volume will contain Historical Sketches of the Buchanan Campaign of 1857, being an ac- count of the causes and notable incidents of the Echo Canyon War, taken from original docu- ments. There is no epoch of the history of Utah more romantic and interesting than the period treated upon in this series. Historical, Biographical, Scientific, Literary and Miscellaneous matter, from the pens of Utah’s young people and other writers, will add to the value of the new volume. The Department devoted to Association Intel- ligence will be much improved, containing, be- sides minutes of important meetings, Queries and Answers, Brief Correspondence, Model Pro- grammes, etc. All the members of Associations are requested to employ this department in asking any proper questions that they may desire.
