HOW IT IS EL DEMONSTRATED
The fllrapleatnf aUProofiThat Christ
Will Come Upon Earth Again In
1927 Sampleofthe Reasoning
Upon Which Some People
Base Their Bel era.
The adventists at Battle Creek,
Mich, and in other parts of the coun
try are again preparing for the "end
of the world," which they say is near
at band. Inasmuch as the date of
the much talked and mysterious event
depends upon one's chronology, it is
evident that the chronology of
Adventism is an eminently practical
study. It was the chronology of the
thing that so absorbed the attention
of Lieut. Totten, formerly of Yale
university. After much figuring he
decided that the climax was due in
In Chicopee Falls lives J. D. Rich,
who has a chronology of his own. He
says that Totten is a fool and that his
figures won't even add, subtract and
divide. He further declares that the
Rich chronology, which fixes the date
in 1927, is the only correct one, and
he challenges the world to break it.
It was for the purpose of having him
elucidate his reckoning for the special
benefit of the public that he was re
cently interviewed. Mr. Rich was
asked to explain how he knew that on
April 13, 1927, would take place the
second coming of Christ on earth
with all the accompanying phenom
ena. As he had several demonstra
tions ready, each being a bewildering
compound of scriptural texts and
lunar ana solar years, months and
days, he was finally urged to choose
or all his demonstrations tne simplest
and clearest for popular reading; that
one, indeed, which by its mere state
ment would be most apt to carry con
viction to the doubting mind. Mr.
Rich, signifying a readiness to begin,
was thus interrogated:
"What is the first step in the dem-
times for your

"A lunar year is
tinuedMr. Rich,. "but in all biblical
phrophecy, days are reckoned as
years; so now we multiply 860. lunar
years by seven, and get 2,520 years,
which is the measure of the punish
ment visited by (iod upon the child
ren of Israel."
"But how do you know that God
meant 7x360 when he said 'seven
times' fn Ievirlcus XXVI: 28T"
Mr. Rich didn't make that point
very clear, but perhaps it didn't mat
ter, for he was very sure that when
God said "seven times," he meant 7
by 870 whether it was dear to me ' or
not. So I remarked: "Go on, Mr.
Rich, it's getting interesting."
"The punishment of the children
of Israel," he continued, "began
when they fell under tribute to the
king of Assyria, and that happened
in 740 B. C, (see II Chronicles) so the
period of punishment did not expire
until 1780 A. D. Judah's punishment
ran the same time as Israel's, but it
began later, or in 623 B. C."
"How do you know that about Ju
dahr "Well the Lord says in II Kings,
XXIII: 27: 'I will remove Judah also
out of my sight, as I have removed
Israel.' The clause, 'As I have re
moved Israel,1 means that he punish
ed Judah the same length of time.
Isn't that plain enough?"
"So it is! Now, how do you 'know
that Judah's punishment began 623
"Usher savs so. Consequently Ju
dah's time of punishment does not ex
pire until 1897 A. !."
"Still being punished?"
But Mr. Rich continued: "The cen
tral point of Judah's punishment was
in 627 A. D."
"What do you want with a central
"I have a central point because in
Daniel XII: 7, 1 read: 'And I heard
the man clothed in linen, which was
upon the waters or the river, when he

that liveth forever, that it shall be

"It's very lucid. So you multiply
130 by 45; well?"
.That eives us 5.871 vears and eiuht
months. Subtract 8,945 years, the
Ceriod from the beginning to the
irth of Christ, and we have 1,928
years and eight months, or 1927 A. D.,
which must be the time for the second
coming of the Lord."
"But you were to show that April
14th,l927. was the exact date. You
didn't say anything about 1926 and
eight months, or 1927 simply, when
you began this demonstration.
"That is explained by the fact that
Christ was really 29 years and eight
months old when he was baptised, al
though the bible says he was about
80. So we must add 4 months and 14
days to carry Christ to the Passover,
which will bring us down to April 14,
1927. It will really come on April 12,
according to our time, for Pope Greg
ory, you remember, made an error of
two days when he fixed up his new
calendar in 1583."
"Then the real time, according to
our calendars, will be April 13, 1927?"
"Yes. It's clear enough to you,
"Very clear. Mr. Rich. The public
will find your demonstration of the
second coming of Christ remarkably
clear and convincing. Does Totten
make it so clear as you do?"
iotten! He can't and straight.
You can't make head or tail to what
he's driving at. But my chronology
will figure, anyone can work it out

account of the accompanying phe

the world to be consumed in a great

in Daniel XII: 1, began in 1888 and

ter of Isaiah calls for a congress of na
tions to give Palestine back to the
Jews in 1898. Before 1897, Russia
with France will take possession of
the principalities of the Danube, and
France will have Alsace and Lorraine
again; for the Lord says in Genesis:
'I will extend Joseph and he shall
dwell in the tents of Shem.' Russia,
Ethopia, Persia, Libya and other na
tions will be gathered before Jerusa

his foot again on the Mount of Olives
and there will be a great earthquake
and Home will go up in a volcano.
The gentile world will be overthrown
by God after He shall have gathered

"He was the bishop back in King

Wisterman, a little hamlet in Put
nam county on the Clover Leaf, was
last week the scene of one of the most
atrocious murders ever committed in
the State.. The community some
what of an uncivilized one, more or
less lawlessness existing there and
crimes being of nightly occurrence.
Revival meetings were beingheld un
der the direction of Iter. Joshua C.
Biggs, a divine of State reputation,
and he had stirred up quite a feeling
among the better class of inhabitants
or the place, much to the hatred of
There is no church in the communi
ty, and the meetings held there have
resulted in a movement to that end
being inaugurated, and this, more
than anything else, has been the
cause of the feeling stirred up against
Biggs, and which resulted in his mur
der. The meetings have been held
in an old school house, and from this
building Biggs has found it necessary
to go several miles to his boarding
house. Monday night when the big
storm raged in this section, there was
not much of an attendance at the
meeting, and when it was over Biggs
was compelled to traverse the entire
distance by himself. The night was
the stormiest of any of the season,
and when he was some distance from
the little church he was waylaid and
killed. The tragedy was enacted near
the Clover Leaf track and his body
was thrown, as the murderers sup
posed, on the track, but, in the blind
ing storm they did not get it oi the
rails, and it was found in a drift by
the side of the track in a badly muti
lated state. The throat was cut from
ear to ear and the breast was slashed
and the heart almost cut out. Biggs'
watch and pocketbook were missing
and everything of value on his per
son was gone, as soon as it was
found that he had not returned to his
boarding house it was suspected by
his friends that he had met with foul
play, as he had received many threat
ening letters advising him to leave the
neighborhood or suffer the conse
quences, but he was not frightened,
and although he realized the tough
character of the neighborhood in
which he was, he said he would stay

TO ODST JUDGE HANDY.
Question Raised aa to When His
A dispatch from Columbus says:
"Two warranto proceedings were be
gun in the Supreme Court on the
21st by Attorney General Richards to
oust Judge Handy from the common
pleas bench of the Third Judicial dis
trict, composed of the counties of
Putnam, Henry and Fulton. J M.
Sheets, of Putnam county, was
elected in that district last fall over
M. Donnelly, of Henry county. Judge
Handy claims the new terms does not
begin until May 10, while the case is
brought on the gound that the new
term begins February 9." "Our newly
elected republican judge no doubt is
hungry, very hungry, as republican
place seekers generally are, and if he
can get a republican supreme court
to give him a chance at the teat im
mediately, his hunger will be ap
peased and the record of the repub
lican greed and rascality will be kept
, ANOTHER TIKW OF THE CASE.

Monday, to consult Judge Handy with
regard to taking his position. The
law .seems to be indefinite as to the
time of the change, some holding
that the 9th of February is the time,
others that May 9th is the time.
Judge Handy does not want to hold a
moment longer than the law con
templates, and May 9th is quite as
early as Judge Sheets wants to as
sume the position. But in order that
no trouble to litigants may arise, they
thought it best, in a friendly manner,
to refer the matter tn the Supreme
Court for decision. "
Judge Handy offered to resign at
once but Judge Sheets would not con
sent to that. Wauseon Tribune.

of a judgment. "Thirteen years," re
plied one of the young attorneys
promptly. His colleague seemed sur
prised at this information and in a
very polite manner "said he did not
want to criticise but that the fact is
that the limit is six years. The fact
