TWER presents, without comment, the story of what appears to be Auburn’s first encounter with Mormonism as reported in a winter 1898 issue of The Plainsman (then the Orange and Blue), and told with the snarkiness typical of that era of Auburn student journalism.

Foy Onion says
Are you sure this was from an 1896 Plainsman? The Maine blew up February 15, 1898. Unless the Mormons in this article were also precognitive, something’s not adding up.
Further evidence of precogntion, “setting out for Cuba to live on bananas and blood.” That sounds like some Charlie Sheen stuff right there.
Ah, thanks. That 6 is an 8.
But I wouldn’t put precognition past these dudes.
God bless the Mormos! I’m a Protestant, but they often gave out hot chocolate on cold days on campus when i was a student.
that meant to say “Mormons”
