150 years ago today - Mar 9, 1870

I witnessed another evidence of the far-seeing policy of our President [Brigham Young]. He happened to see some little fellows playing with round stones for want of marbles'"I heard him say to his wife: '"Look into the buggy, and see if there are not some marbles.'" Surely enough they were produced, and given to the children. He also had some tobacco for the Indians. There seemed to be something for every emergency in that buggy. -- Harrisburg, Utah
