Frozen In the Solid Ice.
Noit lonig ago, in Siblria, a mammoth
\\ias founlld wit h grass between its teeth
frliztn solidt ill at great hasin of ice,
w\hich was so clear that the animal
iould he seen long before the ice
tntiltt'ed etlnough flor it to hbe convenient
ly exhuml'd. Sihnilarly, a deer was
found in the polar regions, with undl
gested graiss in its stomach, proving
clearly that thi eatastroplhe which
overtlook it and froze it solidly in the
.let was a suldd'en one-Just such as
did occur, acc.rding to the Vaillian
The breaking off he watery envelope

lithe earth toward the eq .tlr. Thus
came thit great :glacial periodtl, and some
I of ithe' great glaciers or iceblergs carried
I over North America cut great gullies,
valleys, Crevices, canyons. Geologists
have traced the course of some of these
and charted them.
As the cold at the poles was extreme
-to form the great ice-caps covering
the earth and only gradually melting
away-so the heat at the equator must
have been proportionately extreme.
The intense heat at the equator,
warming the ocean, set up ocean cur
rents. These for the past 4,000 years
have been gradually modifying the arc
tic regions-advancing the temperate
zone further and further toward the
poles, and more anld more reducing the
Ice-caps, bringing them toward the
equator as great icebergs to be meltel
and sent back Warm.
The Ark Divinely Protected.
We naturally inquire, where was the
the ark while such a torrent of water
poured over the earth from the poles?
How was it that the ark was kept safe
and comparatively quiet in such a time
of stress? The answer of faith would
be that God, who directed Noah and
his family to build the ark, exercising
His power would undoubtedly protect
And now comes forward Professor
George Frederick Wright, the geologist,
who tells the world that the region
around about Mount Ararat, where the
ark rested, was apparently at one time
the scene of a great eddy. While the
waters raged elsewhere, God specially
held that part quiet, just as we have
often seen a quiet eddy or bay along
side of a swiftly rushing stream. Pro
fessor Wright's deductions respecting
the quietness of this little corner of
the earth are drawn largely from the
fact that he finds there a wonderfully
deep soil, which seems to indicate that
it was a settling .basin for intensely
muddy waters in the long ago.
Pastor Riussell then drew a lesson
from the deluge in the line of his text.
He deduced that the Savior's words do
not refer to the wickedness of the
ante-diluvians, and that He did not
compare it to the wickedness at the time
of ills second advent, tlough doubt
less a correspondency might have been
deducible. The Master's words imply
rather that, as the people of Noah's
day were quite unconscious of the
coming delufg, so will all mankind be
totally unconscious of the great cat
astrophe which will come upon the
world in the end of this age, prepar
ing the way of Messiah's kingdom.
The clear teaching of our text is
that the day of the son of man, the
time of His parousia, or presence, will
precede the time of trouble coming
upon the world. St. Matthew's ac
count of this same discourse is slight
ly different and emphasizes the point
we are making. It declares, "Thus
shall it be in the presence (parousia)
of the son of man." In other words,
the scriptures clearly teach that the
second coming of Jesus will be inviS
ible to the world, and visible, even to
His people, only by the eye of faith.
During His parousia a sifting, or
testing, of His consecrated church will
proceed, and will result in the gath
ering of all the elect into the heaven
ly kingdom by the change of the first
resurrection. This will be the full end
of the gospel age, and the full begin
ning of the new age. It is to this time
Jesus referred, saying "Watch ye,
therefore and pray a ways, that ye may
be accounted worthy to escape all
these things that shall come to. pass,
and to stand before the son of man."
As soon as the church shall all have
passed beyond the veil into the condi
tion of heavenly glory-the kingdom
condition-the great time of trouble
will fully envelope the earth--"a time
of trouble, such as never was since
there was a nation,"-Dan. 12:1; Matt.
It will be that time of trouble which
will be Messiah's revelation of Him
self to the world. In it, they will seek
the covering, or protection, of the
great rocks of society (secret orders)
and of the great mountains of earth
(earthly governments.) (Revelation
6:14-16.) But none of these will be
able to deliver them from the fiery
troulble (distress) of that day, which
will consume every institution out of
accord with righteousness, truth, jus
tice. "He shall be revealed * * * In
flaming fire, taking vengeance."
The vengeance will not be so much
against deluded and ensnared human
ity, as against evil principles and the
unjust arrangements of the present
time. When we say unjust arrange
ments, we do not wish to be under
stood that the world is necessarily
more unjust than in the past; but
rather that, with our increased light
and knowledge, more is expected of
the present generation than of their
From all accounts, we infer that the
time of trouble will be sharp and
short, "else would no flesh be saved."
Messiah's spiritual kingdom, invisible
to man, will comer to the rescue. It will
have its earthly representatives, and
order will soon crome out ofichaos. Hu
inanity, humbled by the fall of present
institutions, will be ready to accept
Messiah's kingdom. We read, there
fore, that it will be "the desire of all
It is for us, my beloved hearers, to
continue to abide in Christ, to seek
his will in every matter, to wait pa
tiently for Ills appointed time for our
deliverance, and according to our cove
nant, lay down our lives ih the serv
ice of the brethren. We remind you
of St. Paul's words, "The day of the
Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
When they (the vordly) shall say,
peace and safety, then sudden destruc
tion cometh upon them, as travail up
on a woman with child; and they shall
not escalpe.. But ye. brethren, are not
in darkness, that that day should
ove.rtake you as a thief. Ye are all
the children of light, and the children
of thlle day."--1 Thessalonians 5:1-5.
The light now shining is and should
he very helpful to us. If we realize
that we are living in the "days of the
son of man"-that the inspection of
the church is now in progress, and
that soon the elect will be complete
this faith will make us the more zeal
orus to make our calling and election
"LeIt us watch and praY,
And labor till the work is done."
Gradually mankind will come to un
derstand. Gradually their eyes of un
derstanding will open, and they will
see that it is the "wrath of the lamb"
that causes the "time of trouble such
as never was since there was a na
tion." They will learn the intended

value for value, our seeds are the cheapest on the market. We buy in quantities
and ship in carloads, and the benefits thus secured we share with the trade. We
gauge our buying so as to have enough to supply everyone and yet sell out com
pletely each season, but sometimes underestimate the demand and run short of
some varieties, so it is to your advantage to make up your ordegearly and thus se
