starting at 2:30 and the evening show
at 7:30. The afternoon and evening
pictures will be the same, but there
will be a complete change of pictures
every day. There will be no charge
for the show, but if those who are

in a very interesting way the story of
the creation of the earth. There will
be a lecturer with every performance
who will explain each view. Every
man, woman and child in Leavenworth
should see these pictures. Remember
the Grand theatre, starting Friday, Jan

Elmer Chester of Peshastin Severely In
jured Last Sunday
Mr. Chester, a young man who has
made his home about Peshastin for the
past few years, came very near losing
his life last Sunday when he with Wm.
lies, was taking some horses to water.
Chester was visiting at the lies home
six miles up Feshastin creek and offered
to help water some horses just after
dinner, The horses were restless from
having been in the stable all day and
as they were being driven to the water
one of them playfully kicked up his
heels, one hind foot striking Chester
on the left side of the head and face,
the cork coming in contact with his
nose and another part of the shoe tear
iug his cheek almost off, laying bare
the bone. He became unconscious
and remained so for thirty-six hours.
He was taken to Peshastin and brought
here on the train Monday. Dr. Mc-
Keown has him under his care and says
he is in a fair way to recover but had a
very narrow escape, and will have a
badly scarred face all his life.
Mr. P. M. Gregory, employed in the
Peshastin Mercantile Co.'s store came
here Tuesday afternoon to sit up with
Chester, of whom he is a friend, and
gave us the particulars.
War Talk by Mr. Louis Michel
Mr. Michel is well known here as
well as Wenatchee, where he lives, as
a student of world matters and his free
lecture in the Scenic theater, Sunday,
December 27, will no doubt be inter
esting and instructive.

"THE LAST DAYS"
What is meant by the expression,
"Last Days?" Many people speak of
the last days in a light manner not
knowing what is meant by the term,
while others treat the matter as though
it was always coming but by their
actions never expecting to be in their
time, but generations far ahead.
There must have been some order
or condition of things existing at the
time of the giving of this prophecy,
and Bible students are not content
until they have the solution of the
matter 1 Thes. 5-21. Through the
Prophet Joel 3-9 God has told us that
at a certain time the nations would be
in such an attitude that it would be an
easy matter to start a war and while the
leading nations were holding peace
conferences and outwardly were all de
sirous of promoting peace among all,
yet secretly they were laying aside
means with which to carry on the great
est war the world ever knew. Dan 12
--1, In the 10th verse is a picture of
those who under ordinary circumstances
would be cultivating the soil to produce
food for the needy and dressing the
vineyards but would be neglecting this
and instead would be using their swords
and spears in order to uphold the dig
nity and honor of the kings and nobles
under whose yoke they are kept by
tradition and love of their fatherland.
In the 11th verse is a picture of the
mustering of armies of the nations or
as another has said a preparation of the
elements in which that which composes
the heavens (ecclesiasticism) as
(churchanity) shall pass away with a
great noise (war) and the elements
which compose the earth (society)
shall melt with the heat of battle and
the works that are in both shall be
destroyed (symbolized) by being
burned up 2 Pet 3-10x12. The 15th
verse gives a graphic description of the
times of the last days aad proves be
yond doubt that we are indeed in the
last days. The darkening of the sun
and moon (the illuminating influences
of the Gospel and Mosaic Law) caused
by the (Pulpit Stars) no longer shining
the brilliant rays of Christ and the
Apostles but like imitation diamonds
are reflecting upon the masses the tra
ditions of men and instead of giving the
Dure water (truth) from the fountain
(God's word) they have given them
the muddy water of human manufac
turing and in the enlightement of our
day it has become nauseating to the
masses and while many are following
the beaten paths of their fathers the
vast majority are plunging headlong
not knowing where they are going and
seem not to care. They can see that
churchanity under the disguise of Chris
tianity instead of accomplishing what
they have claimed to be their mission
viz the (conversion of the world) has
been a miserable failure and men have
been driven farther away from God and
the Bible by their false doctrines most
of which was formulated during the
While we have heard the gathering
storm and rumblings of the angry na
tions we have also noticed the Sea
(restless masses of humanity) and the
waves (labor organizations, trusts and
combinations) roaring and many hav
ing been misinformed as to the final
destiny of man their hearts are failing
them many of whom are taking their
own lives while others are drifting
away from the Bible into infidelity,
higher criticism, theosophy, evolution
and Christian Science falsely so called.
Another evidence that we are living in
the last days of Gentile Dominion is
the fact that the Lord through the
revelation has commanded His people
to come out of "Mystic Babylon"
(Christendom) and many who have
been held in superstition and ignorance
relative to the teachings of the Scrip
tures have begun studying their Bibles
(trimming their lamps) and are follow
ing the light revealed and are severing
their connection from the creedal beds
in which they have slept these many
years but on account of the glorious
light now shining they have outgrown
and they must seek new quarters
where they can enlarge their conception
of the love of God (or his creatures and
the great plan whereby He will justify
the heathen (nations) through faith
which when their blind eyes have been
opened by the Sun of Righteousness
which shall arise with healing (not
Torment) in his wings ot beams (»s
they have been taught) See Isa 35 eh
also Gal 3-8) and when their support
Sometime, perhaps, someone
will coin a new phrase that will
better express appreciation for
favors received. Until a better
one is originated we can only as
sure you of our sincere thanks
for your patronage the past year,
wish you all the joy of the sea

the pleasure of serving you of

is withdrawn Mystic Babylon or the
present heavens will soon pass away
amid the noise of those who will try to
hold them together but will be power
less for God's time having come they
must give way for the new heavens

overcomers of this Gospel age.
We are told by the apostle 2 Thes

This means to study God's word
dispensationally and apply scripture to
the age or dispensation to which it be
longs and treat each symbol, figure of
speech, parable or literal expression ac
cording as they should be, thus avoid
ing contradictions and confusion on
precious truths and not have our minds
filled with things which are unreason
able as well as unscriptural then we
could see prophecy fulfilling daily and
beyond the dark cloud (trouble) we
could see the beautiful silver lining
and get a glimpse of the attributes of
God's character, viz wisdom, justice,
love and power. Frank Shell
