IS THE END APPROAtHING
.ome Thou:hts SuaIested by this Solemn in.
In an Cditorial, son weeks since, one
sentence reads thus: "Our belief is that
our work!'s history is near the end." TIUE
DAILY (Celumibia) Ihcono quotes that
sutttn.e, and seems to think that a great
1nmy-gogod people iiy be, unreasonably
disturbed by suCh declaat "on. aInd that
they "would like to'know what reasons we
have for entertaining such a belief. To
this the editor of Tin-: Ricono adds his
own wish iSt we "ouM give tile public
the benefit of whatever infornattion we
may have onl the subjet.

the driftig signs of the times lead us to
the belief that the world is approaching a
unparalleled crisis. Whether that crisis
.'ill be the end of the world or something
else time wfll show.
Some persums teach that certain thngs
are yet to taike.place before the eoing of
Christ, which things we are persuaded have
idready taken place.
For instance: "Ask of me. and I shail

ofsneh trees would be worth $1,200)."
There are fine specimens of the tree
growing in almost all the Sonthern States,
from Virginia to Texas., which frequently
bear lifteen bushels of 1ine nuts per tree.
and as theyv sell .readily at from $3~ to t$5 a
bushel, the net income from a single tree is
often more than f.2j several acres of ordi
