Description Thinking of Sister Liston's case, I asked an honest Elder today, why, when the Mormons saw people cured by "administering" to them that is "laying hands" on them, they did not cure every sick- ness in the same manner.56 He answered that "this kind [of cure] came by prayer and fasting, and that we [are] required to feel within us the Spirit of Healing; we must have faith, and the patient also." He is as fond of illustrating his remarks, by a story as Lincoln himself, and the children were much amused by one he told us apropos. "I was at Saint Louis," he said, "and went to see a young man of our faith. He was sick. "S", says he "I've had the ague [chills, fever, and/or sweating] these three weeks, I want you to administer to me." He was a laughing kind of a man, fond of his fun, you under- stand; and I sometimes doubted his soundness in the faith. However, he was in earnest now, no mistake about it. Well, I was always very anxious about these matters: trying the spirits, you know-doubtful, for I was always a sympathetic fel- low, and easily impressed, and that made me fearful of being carried away by my feelings. However, I prayed, and felt to lay hands on him. `Staines!' says he, `Staines, it's gone!' for he had had a chill on him when I came in, that shook his little room. `And I've got it,' says I, and sure enough I had! `Now,' says I, `do you lay hands on me!' `Not I,' he answers, rubbing his hands, `I've had it three weeks; that's long enough for one: you may keep it!' And I did `"One of the key ordinances of the church was administering to the ill. Two elders of the church participated in annointing the brow of the individual uith olive oil that had been blessed or consecrated, and then both placed their hands on the head of the sick individual and pronounced a blessing. 47
