END OF TIME, IN
1916, IN RAISED
SCRIPT ON EGG
Whole Town Is Arguing Over
Genuineness of Mysteri
ous Symbol
Pittsburgh, March 17.—An egg—a
white Leghorn egg may be the
means of making McKees Rocks,
Pennsylvania, U. S. A., the most fa
mous historical spot in the universe
for centuries to come. There are
those who believe so. There are
those who do not. Both sides have
plausible arguments In support of
their contentions.
If those who argue In support of
the veracity of the egg are correct,
McKees Hocks will become known as
the place where the dawn of the mil
lenium was foretold to the world in
1916 and as sueh will quite supplant
the Garden of Eden as the most fa
mous of places in the world's history.
On the egg in raised scrip runs this
legend:
The End of Time, 1916
This remarkable egg was found by
Miss Harriett Francis in a nest In the'
hennery owned by Mr. and Mrs. James
Francis, 627 Frederick street, McKees
Rocks. At first the inscription was
not noticed but the egg was laid aside
because its surface was rough and
only smooth surfaced eggs are of
fered their patrons by Mr. and Mrs.
Francis. It was on Tuesday that the
inscription was deciphered by Mrs.
Francis. She told her husband the
secret of the egg when he came home
from work that night.
Egg Taken to Museum
On Friday, Mr. Francis took the egg
to the Carnegie museum and display
ed it to Rouglas Stewart. Meanwhile
the story of the egg and its wondrous
inscription spread from one end to the
other of McKees Hocks. Yesterday
the authenticity of the Inscription was |
debated, pro and con, in the nickel
odeons, in the stores, in the shops and
on the street corners, in fact every
where where people gathered.
Minister Takes Issue
I There were those who insisted that
| the egg actually bore to the world
• the news of the millennium. There
were those who argued that the In
scription was the work of some wag
employed in the chemical department
of the Pressed Steel Car Company. The
Rev. F. A. Wight, pastor of the Mc-
Kees Rocks Christian Church, who
went to Carnegie museum to see the
egg yesterday at the earnest solicita
tion of the advocates of the forme?
theory, said last night that he was
"not prepared to question the veracity
of the inscription by any means." He|
showed from Scripture that the year |
1916 might well mark "tbc end of an!
age, a dispensation," as he put it, :
"which might be mistaken for the'
end of the world."
"Of course," said Mr. Wight, "the
end of the world is a much-misused
expression. What the Bible actually
means by the end of the world is the
end of this dispensation. Christ will
come back to the world, I believe and
He will come within r short time now.
He will come in spirit after this ter
rible war, which will be the last of all
wars, bnt not until after four years
of socialism have followed immedi
ately upon the close of the war. With
the fall of that system, which cannot
last long, Christianity will rule com-;
pletely. Meantime Christ will have |
lifted His church from the world, as
the Bible tells, and will appear with
His church supreme at the conclusion
of the utter failure of men to govern
themselves without God."
Takes Scientific Stand
Mr. Wight took a scientific as well
, as a religious stand In defense of that
attitude.
"At the museum to-day someone
I was inclined to make light of this,"
said he. "I at once stated that the
'true scientific attitude was not one
of ridicule and that it forbade a stand
I against the accuracy of the inscrip
tion 011 the egg until a thorough in
vestigation had been made. Further
.niore, as the egg is the source of life,
what better means could the Lord
employ to convey the news of the sec
ond coming?
"This inscription was not engraved I
on the egg shell. It was embossed |
thereon. The letters were raised.
That is what has puzzled folks so.!
Now, Mr. Stewart said fliat lie could I
duplicate the inscription. If he does!
so, and shows that the hand of man I
can accomplish this, then I shall tell!
iill inquirers so and T shall be inclined
lo the theory that the inscription was j
done artificially."
Stewart Embosses Inscription
Mr. Stewart was asked last night
about his assertion that he could ac- ,
coniplish the same thing with an egg.!
"I did it to-day," said he. "There i
is nothing wonderful about it. I took
an egg, wrote with paraflne on the
shell, gave the egg a muriatic acid
bath and then put it in water. T took
off the palatine and there I had the
inscription embossed."
"The End of Fakes, 19Id"
"What was the inscription that you
wrote on the egg shell?" Mr. Stewart
was asked.
"The end of fakes, 1916," he replied
smilingly.
"Where is that egg?" he was asked.
"On its way by parcel post to the
Rev. Mr. Wight," he replied. "Ho will
get it to-morrow."
Mr. Wight announced that the egg
would be responsible for a sermon that
he would preach this Sunday night in j
his church on "The End of the
World."
The egg rested unostentatiously in a
niche on a shelf in the Carnegie mu
seum yesterday. And so, whereas, an
apple gave the Garden of Eden un
dying fame, it may be that an egg 1
will bring renown to McKees Rocks. I

TIRED ALL THE TIME
It ia good to feel tired sometimes, when
you have exercised sufficiently to cause a
healthful feeling of fatigue.
But, you should be refreshed by rest. j
A tired feeling that docs not disappcj < ;
even after a night's sleep is abnormal. !
It means that you are anemic or debili- ;
tated, that you need a tonic to build yo
up ami fortify your system against BUCL I
a condition. If you do not you are in
viting disease because thin blood meanr
that the body's defense against the in
roads of disease is lowered.
Thin blood is largely the sufferer's o\m j
fault. It results from neglect, because!
the blood can be built up. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills supply the elements that the
blood needs to make it rich and red and
to enable it to carry more oxygen. Build
! ing up the red portion of the blood is
simple but because thin blood does not
call attention to itself is often neglected.
Have you seriously considered taking a
course of treatment with these blood
making pills? If you are in doubt write
for information.
Your own druggist sells Dr. Williams'
Pills or they will be Bent by mail,
