THE THEORY O? CYCLES
Yhl* Xn 4 ue t»t>herr Probably Pa«s inx Türonjh a Prolonged Period of Terrestrial Disturbance. [The Continent.] The theory of eycies, as applied to the phenomena of nature, has gained as adherents all scientific persons of any standing, and numbers among it© disciples, we believe, a great many or thodox theologians. Indeed, there is good scriptural authority for the be lief that in a general way "it never rains but it poors," or, in other words, that the material universe move3 in cireles, and events repeat themselves in groups at certain intervals, not as yet thoroughly understood by mankind, bat which are probably regulated by fixed laws, the secret of which may sooner or later be unlocked by sci ence. iliis is forcibly bronght to mind by tbe events of the past five or six years. Wir hiu that period the earth appears to have been especially subject to in ternal disturbances. Volcanoes long silent have again given signs of activity, and some of them have burst into fierce eruption. Something like a score of new volcanoes have been reported, and . in tbe straits of Sunda a single day witnessed the appearance of a dozen or more. These phenomena have been preceded, accompanied and followed by the most alarming terrestrial disturb ances. To-day it is Asia Minor, yester day it was Java, tbe day before it was Ischia; and in all cases there has been fearful less of life and universal terror. In the southern hemisphere, too, there have been strange atmospheric effects, the sun apparently shining through a veil of blue or green, and coloring all things with a strange, awe inspiring light. Doubtless this last phenomenon is «lue to volcanic eruptions in remote South American regions, ae counts of which have not as yet reached the telegraph lines. It is a little re markable that while these disturbances are lieyonJ the reach of human forecast, the highest civilization seems to have centred in terrestrial belts which have not been subject to upheaval within recent geologic periods. Fiance, Ger many, England and the United States are. for the most part, out -id 3 cf the earthquake belt, so far as its limits are at present defined. It is not reassuring, however, to know that we are probably passing through a period of terrestrial disturb ance, which may not reach its maximum without giving us all a taste or its power. This earth of oirs runs so smoothly along its elliptical track, ]>erforms its own mechanical functions ordinarily with such perfection, that it is hard to realize how small a thing, comparatively considered, faav throw the machinery out of gear. There are uoknowu forces imprisoned within its surface, which now and then give us a hint of their existence, a»>d there are unnamed extinct sons drifting about through space, on whose bulk the wrecked earth would barely make a hillock. It is we 1 enough for us at times to remember these conditions, and reflect how utterly insignificant is our home and its belongings in com parison with the universe of which we form a part. A Stfaise *ntcrrni»«ofc. ~ [dfcSVàn H*raM] The Primitiv# Baptist eamp-meetin| at Silver Creek, had a strange in terruption. A isrM'oi.ly woman began to stream and in a violent manuel during prayer time. The preachei thonght it was a case of spiritual anx iety, and put on more religious fervor, winch Lad a magnetic effect on the Drayerful w orshipers and caused them to do likewise. This stimulated th* matronly woman to renewed exertion? and increased noise. Pre'umtly she de clared that she was not praying, but that she was mad about her daughter. A young man had been paying atten tion to her daughter, and the mother had told the girl to have nothing to dc with him. In order to make sure of this the old lady had held the girl by the arm while engaged in prayer. Very silently and slyly the voting man came And knelt by the girl. The old lady, who was devoutly praying, did not see him, nor did she see the other man that knelt with him. Nor did she at first l now that the whispered words w hich fell from the lips of the three, consti tuted the marriage service. It was w her she found out that her daughter had thus been married cn tbe sly that she began to scream. For awhile she was uncontrollable. But at last she yielded to wise counsel, and decided to make the best of what site considered a Lac barg?, a.
