Following a Revelation Saints Will
Build at Independence.

A year ago last April, in a special revelation, Joseph Smith gave the Latter Day Saings' conference a message to build a sanitarium at Independence for the reorganized church. Ever since the revelation those who were commissioned to act have been busy looking after sites and comparing prices. This committee consisted of E. L. Kelley, Edward Boakesley, R. May, A. H. Parsons, B. J. Scott and Joseph Luff. According to the revelation, Joseph Luff is to have charge of the sanitarium when it is built.

Yesterday after due consideration it was decided to build on the Sawyer tract which lies to the northwest of the stone church of the Saints. The building will be a modest one.
