"125 years ago today - Oct 10, 1898"

Lorenzo Snow is "set apart" (not ordained) as church president, and his counselors are also set apart. This is the first time that members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are set apart for service in the First Presidency. Rudger Clawson is ordained an apostle, the first convicted felon to become a member of the Quorum of the Twelve.
