Pastor K a s e 1 1
preached this after
noon Ht the Tem
ple, corner 1 3 1 b
Street nnd New
York Avenue, to a
T7 - tlm .ntliA
e.-v- . Ml J imnic- (lie taint:.
I VY I BturtlliiR declnra-
.1? il tlon th.it tbe Mil
lennium is already
here: t but chronol
ogy proves that we
hare been llvlntr under some of Its
blessings for the past thirty-eight
years; and that our modern conven
iences nnd progress are attributable to
tbe heglunlng of the rolling away of
the curse, and the substitution of tbe
Tbe Pastor said that the reign of
Messiah for a thousand years not only
will bind Satan and hinder bis further
deception of mankind, but will also
bring light, knowledge, illumination, to
every corner uf tbe eartb. He pointed
out the beginning of these blessings
as already with us; but tliey are only
the fnlnt dawnings of the greater light
which will flood the world, when the
Sun of Itlgbteousness, Emmanuel's
Kingdom, shall be manifested.
Tbe s eaker went on to say that Im
mediately before us Is n terrific storm
which will convulse the present order
of things aoclal. financial, political
and religious. The momentary chaos
will yield to the Prince of Pence, who
will then take to Himself His great
power and reign. He will say to the
billowy waves of trouble, "Peace, be
still." and there will be a calm, eren
as was Illustrated on the Sea of Galilee.
Pastor Russell showed that tbe storm
of trouble which will precede the es
tablishment of Messiah's Kingdom will
be the natural result of the operation
of the laws of Justice. This principle
always operates along the line of cause
and effect. Humanity are not using tbe
wonderful blessings of the present as
they should.' Selfishness prevails
amongst rlih and poor. "The earth's
abundant supply for tbe ttfods of all is
bringing discontent, because the natu
ral heart is full of selfishness.
God will allow selfishness to lead on
to Its inevitable result, and thus will
demonstrate to mankind tbe sinfulness
of sin. selfishness, meanness, and the
beauty of holiness, righteousness, har
mony with God.
"The Desert 8hall Blossom."
Tbe Pastor then called attention to
Isaiah 85, tbe first verse of which de
clares. "The desert shall rejoice and
blossom as the rose." He showed that
Irrigation is literally fulfilling this
prophecy and bringing about marvelous
results. Our Government Is co-operating
with our Intelligent fellow-citizens
to reclaim what was once supposed to
be worthless land.
A similar work of reclamation Is go
ing on In Arabia. Shortly tbe land of
the "Arabian Nights" will realize In a
natural way changes far more won
derful than those of tbe fairy tales
which entranced our childish Imagina-
! tions. Tbe great Sahara Desert, also,
I has been examined by engineers, who
! have ascertained that much of it lies
below sea level. At comparatively
I small cost it can be, Inundated and
I brought to a high state of .cultivation.
Tbe speaker also said that the Scrip
I tures prophesy that the Dead Sea will
' one day be connected with tbe ocean.
Pastor Russell then applied Isaluh
85:3 to our day, and declared that he
Is trying to carry out' its commands.
The Scriptures show that before tbe
world can receive Its share of bless-
' Ings, the Church of Christ must first
( be gathered and changed to spirit be
ings by the First Resurrection.
After this has been accomplished,
mankind -will. receive earthly blessings
through the Messianic Kingdom: These
wiU surpass anything which humanity
has ever dreamed.
Then be showed that Jesus' miracles
were merely illustrations of the work
of His Second Advent. During tbe
Millennium, our Lord and His Church
will remove, not only physical bllnd-
ness' dea'ne8s. lameness, etc.. but also
human weaknesses and frailties result-
lag from the fail of Adam. What a
new aspect earth will present when
Bin. sickness, sorrow and death will
forever have passed awayl

CHEER OF THE OLD HOME
Something Which Every Man and
Woman Should Be Able to Look
It would be a blessing if we parents
could Just reflect that it may be that
the only cheer in life which our chil
dren will get Is the cheer of the old
home, writes Prank W. Gunsnulus.
They are hurrying out into the world
which has no time to make them
happy. If they are fortunate, as the
wnlA .... , V .... 1, 1. 1 l.
I homes, where old-fashioned and romp
i ing cheerfulness would skin its shins
against the furniture or break the
Louis XrV. chair. Blessed old days,
and most wholesome to look back
upon, are those when the hearty laugh
of father would not split the lace cur
tains, and when mother could have
two big, healthy children upon her
lap while she was sitting down, with
safety to all parties, In her rocker. No
coin on earth costs so little to mint
and goes so far In paying life's heavy
expenses as Good Cheer. Pessimists
are made before children are ten
years of age, and pessimism comes
when a child cannot turn a golden
laugh into ready cash for life's poverty
and Its relief. We talk about the cru
elty of a father's depriving a child
of sufficient clothing. It Is too bad;
but a child's toes would better be
"ruddy and his ears tingle with cold
than to have, a home with winter in
the atmosphere and the smiles all
freezing to death.
No child Is prepared for the su
premely serious things of life who
cannot laugh away all the goblins and
ghosts and break with the shining
wand of Good Cheer the circle drawn
around him by any giant
Present Day Cooks Like to 8ee Fu
ture Working Place Before They
, Engage Themselves,
"A phase of the servant girl Ques
tion that was new to me was sprung
the other day when I called at. an
employment agency to hire a cook,"
said tbe nervous woman. "A prepos
sessing looking girl was brought for
ward for an interview. Her first ques
tion was: Have you any pictures of
your kitchen?' ; ..' '
"I said I had none.
"'It is always best to bring them,'
Bald the girl loftily. 'It saves time
and trouble, for with them to look at
a cook can see at a glance the posi
tion of the sink, the tubs, the range,
and the cupboards, and can tell If the
place will suit her.'
"While r was adjusting my mind to
that phase of the proposition another
woman with a wider experience than
mine piped up that she had brought
viewi of her kitchen. From that min
ute I was out of it as far as that par
ticular cook was concerned. The pic
tures met her approval, and the other
woman hired her on tbe spot I asked
the manager If it was tbe custom for
housekeepers to produce views of
their home when hiring servants.
" 'The custom Is not yet universal,'
ne said, 'but It is growing. In one
aense the girl Is right; it does save
time and trouble.' "
Clever Fat Men.
It is frequently averred that fat is
deadening to the brain, and conse
quently a foe to intellectual activity.
But is thiB so? Some of the greatest
men the world has ever known were
plump even to obesity.
Napoleon was decidedly embonpoint.
Dr. Johnson was flebhy even to flabbl
ness. So was his biographical shad
ow, Boswell. Balzac, the great French
novelist, was so stout that it was a
day's exercise to walk around him,
and he was encircled with bandages
as if be were a hogshead. Rossini, the
composer, was a regular Jumbo, since
for six years he never saw his knees.
Jules Janln, the prince of critics,
broke every sofa he ever sat down'
upon. Lablanche, the great singer,"
was chargedbreerwhen he trav-,
eled. Dumas pere was stout, and
Sainte-Beuve carried the stomach of a
Fal staff. Eugene Sue had such aver
sion to his growing corpulency that
be drank vinegar to keep it down; and
yet he wrote "The Wandering Jew." .
A man la not necessarily fat-witted
because he has a boundless stomach.
Fishing, Their Occupation.
Over 1,200 small boats are used
along the north coast of New Bruns
wick in fishing. Nearly every resident
Is a fisherman during pprtions of the
year, while a majority follow fishing
as an occupation. The greater num
ber of smelt fishermen are farmers
who find smelt fishing a profitable
( side line during the winter months.
HOW TO RESIST
Chronic Coughs and Colds.
Strong, vigorous men and women
hardly ever catch cold; it's only when
tbe system Is run down and vitality
low that colds and coughs get a foot'
Now Isn't it reasonable that the
right way to cure a cough Is to build
up your strength again T
Mrs. Olivia Parham, of East Dur
ham, N. C, says: "I took Vlnol for a
chronic cough which had lasted two
years, and the cough not only disap
peared, but it built up my strength,
The reason Vinol Is so efficacious In
such cases is because It contains in a
delicious concentrated form all the
medicinal curative elements of cod
liver oil, with tonic, blood-building
Chronic coughs and colds yield to
Vinol because it builds up the weak
ened, run-down system.
Ton can get your money back any
time If Vinol does not do all we say.

Prescription for a Stingy Man.
In the January Woman's Home
Companion appears a story in which
is related on account of a prescrip
tion given to an exceedingly stingy
farmer by a doctor. The farmer
took the prescription to the drug
gist. The druggist told the farmer
that he could not fill the prescrip
tion and said to the farmer "If you
will read it yourself you will see
why." Whereupon the farmer ad
justed his glasses and read to his
"One hired girl to be taken as
soon as you can get her, and kept
constantly on hand thereafter.
And a new dress that the wives
of your hired men wouldn't be
ashamed to wear, and a new hat
and wrap --to replace those you
bought her last thirteen years ago.

Hogs Pay for Cattle Feed.
Henry Sahn, east of town, is feed
ing 21 head of 1250 pound steers
and 100 head of hogs, averaging 150
pounds. Mr. Sahn has been keep
ing account of tbe gam made by
both cattle and hogs, also the
amount of corn fed. and according
to his figures the gain of the cattle
costs him nothing. He is feeding
the cattle 25 bushels of ecru a day,
which . at 40 cents a bushel would
cost $10. The hogs following the
cattle gain 1 1-2 pounds a day,
which at $7 per cwt. is $10.50,
enough to pay the price of the feed
fqt both tfie cattle and the hogs.
Each : steer is gaining 3 pounds a
day." 'At'1 $8 per- cwt. this would
make $5.04 clear money ivery day;
