Came True, Others Not
Many disasters, panics, storms, rev
olutions and fatalities were, predict
ed for tho year 1907. Whllo somo or
these prophecies actually came true,
nnit otliers did not, tho 1907 proph
ets nio pointing to their Perilled pre
dictions and baying, "1 told you so."
At tho Banio time, people, who linvo
very little or no faith In prophets,
certainly hnvo abundant cxcubcs for
remarking that, as usual, tho proph
ets of 1907 overbtepped tho mark.
Nearly every imaginable kind of
disaster was prophesied for 1907, and
It Is comforting to note that most of
them have not occurred.
Vor- Instnnce, I'rof. Kdmuml Scrlb
ner Stevens, formerly of Lebanon,
l'a but now u resident of Washing
ton, I). C, predicted that during 1907
the wliolo aspect of the world was
to be changed.
"Old geographical lines will dis
appear," ho announced. "Dynasties
will crumble, new Slutcs will arise.
Established religions, excepting
Christianity, will fade away, and so
clat forms will bo revolutionized.
Across the faco of tho earth a broad
track will sweep an unknown, but
desolating force. Cities will be laid
In ruins, mountains will bo torn
asunder, parts of continents will van
ish and new hind will rise, out of tho
I'rof. Stevens further predicted for
1907 the death of tho Czar of Rus
sia, followed by tho freedom of the
Jews from oppression; tho passing
away of tho Sultan of Turkey, with
tho restoration of Palestine, to the
Ilobrews; tho death of Kmpcror Kran
els Joseph of Austria, breaking the
peace of Europe; tho demise of tho
Dowager Empress of China, bringing
In n new dynasty.
Mine, de Thebes, of I'arls, came.
nearer to tho mark by predicting that '
tho pcoplo.of tho United States wcro
to enter Into a period of misfortunes
miring 1907. She said nothing about
earthquakes and other desolating
forces, but ono or two things which
she did predict, and which havo been
verified, nre Interesting to look back
"Germany Is to bo overwhelmed
with financial catastrophes and other
scandals," said Mmo. Thebes. "Jinny
roynl houses nil over Europe will be
In mourning. The Emperor of Aus
tria will not leave his crown to his
expected successor. King Edward Is
to llguro ns peacemaker In u pitched
battle between tho Lords and Com
mons, llclglum will go through so
cial and political upheavals."
Prophet Lee J. Spanglcr, of York,
Pa., who predicted In tho Now York
World, Dec. 18, 1905, thnt during
1900 there would bo n destructive
eruption of Mount Vesuvius, great
and destructive earthquakes In Cali
fornia, earthquakes and volcanic
eruptions in all parts of tho world,
grouped 1907 and 1908 together In
his ninth bulletin of predictions Is
cued In May, 1900. Without being
very specific ns to dates, Mr. Spang
"Wall street Is tho center of nil

thcro will bo great suffering there
Up to dato tho Spanglcr bulletin
has had very llttlo verification In
fact, but n later bulletin Issued in
December, 1900, contained several
predictions which, In view of recent
happenings, may bo looked back up
on with no small wonderment. Here
"Many men In tho business and
financial world will commit suicide
hecnuso of their wrong-doings.
"Tho year 1907 will bo filled with
warnings to the whole world of Its
"Peoplo In ninny countries will bo
killed by thousands by hunger. III
ncss, the sword and the beasts of
"Thero will bo earthquakes In div
ers places. Island will disappear
and mountalns.no longer will be
Mr. Spanglcr shot very wldo of the
mark In somo of tho following pie.
"Tho United States will becomo In
volved In another war, but will be
victorious. 'Labor will rlso up and
bring business to n standstill. Rev
olution will spread from shore to
shore. Tho Sultan of Turkey and
tho Czar uf Russia will bo killed."
Mr. Spanglcr, however, cannot
claim nil the credit for predicting
financial disturbances, because Mr.
John D, Rockefeller predicted them
too. In n prophecy issued Inst Aug.
17 ho said a period of flnnncl.il ills
aster was coming thnt would sweep
tho country from end to end. lint
then, unlike Prophet Spanglcr, It Is
posslblo that Mr. Rockefeller hml
