women who have Seattle at heart, lay aside
their differences and throw Ramsay in the
fight and then give him a united support
and there will be nothing to it.

The country about Cle Elum is more or
less flooded just now and greater danger
threatens the settlers in case the dam at
Lake Ketcheles breaks, in which case the
whole country would be flooded and unless
the settlers moved rapidly many would lose
their lives. In case of such trouble, how
ever, the big whistle at the mines will give
the signal for all to run to the mountains
for their lives. Those whose houses are
thus far above high water mark are doing
all they can to relieve the suffering. Mrs.

Great Epochs and Great Events
There are some great epochs that have
taken place in the progress of events in the
history of the world since the establishment
of the petty kingdoms of antiquity that is
marked by the rise and fall of great king
doms anad empires. Some of these epochs
are already closed and others are still in
progress. If we give the matter our serious
attention we shall discover two separate
lines of progress and development in the
known civilized relations of mankind that
have followed the race westward and that
more particularly concern the Caucasian or
white races of man.
These epochs and events are comprehend
ed as follows:
First:—The settlement of Abram, the pro
genitor of the Israelites, in the land of
Second: —The delivery of the Israelites by
Moses from the bondage of Egypt, and their
establishment in the promised land of Ca
Third:—The complete establishment of
the Babylonian empire, and the reign of
Fourth:—The birth, life and death of
Jesus Christ and the establishment of Chris
tianity in the world.
Fifth:—The Reformation under Martin
Fn+ner and others.
Sixth:—The discovery of the Western
Continent, a new world, and the declaration
of independence, and the establishment of a
new nation, under a new name and title, the
United States of America.
Seventh:—The French Revolution, and
the rise and fall of the Napoleonic dy

most important epochs in the world since
the dawn of recorded history, are noted as

Israelites, in the promised land of Canaan.

It may be of interest to know that Abram
or Abraham, as he was afterwards known,
and Nebuchaddnezzar, were both Chaldeans
from one of the provinces of the Babylon
ean Empire. That in which Babylon' was
situated. Abram was selected by Jehovah
to be the head and named Abraham, the
father of a race which was to be raised up
for a special purpose.
And Nebuchaddnezzar, being the head
was appointed to represent a great system
of world activity which was to endure for a
definite specified term; and include king
doms and empires of vast extent and great
powers and authority which should rise and
fall in the progress of tremendous contests
of military struggles in which each in turn
should become supreme upon the prostrate
form of the other.
The great purpose and end in view by the
creation and appointment of these two
separate and distinct systems of activity,
were one and the same thing, the prepara
tion of the world for the setting up and es
tablishing the kingdom in the latter days
that is to endnre unto the ages of the ages,
devoted to the true worship of Jehovah.
One represented the head of a race that
was to be raised up for the special purpose
of introducing into the world a knowledge
of Jehovah as the true God of worship: and
by means of this knowledge overthrow the
entire system of idolatrous worship. The
other represented the head of a system of
forces, the purpose of which was to so con
duct the affairs of the world that the entire
systems then existing of world powers and
activities together with idolatrous worship
should eventually be utterly destroyed.
One was called God's people, because they
they were to, and did, represent in a spec
ial manner, and act as a medium by which
a knowledge of Jehovah's commands and
directions would be, and were, made known
to all the nations. The other was named
Babylon, because Babylon was the great
center and head of the systems of idolatrous
worship, and was the representative of those
powers and systems of activity that degrad
ed mankind to a slavish serfdom in support
and maintenance of a royal and nobility
class among the peoples and nations of the
We must not, however, flatter ourselves
that these systems have yet been destroyed.
They are just as much alive, just as active,
and just as effectual in their operation now
as then, though in a modified and mixed
form. We are now actually living under
mixed systems of idolatry and Christianity.
By the birth and life of the Christ the
design and purpose of the establishment of
the Israelites, according to the Gentile be
lief and understanding, was enlarged and
so extended as to embrace the whole world
of human beings. And the true worship was
more fully expounded, and more extensively
introduced. But the world has accepted it
only in part. It has only partially received,
understood, and acknowledged Christ's mis
sion. It has even made in many respects
attempts to improve upon Christ's expo
This is shown by the mixture of Christ

prevail in the world; and no denomination

worship, and is still acting under the Babyl
