The End o( The World.
Predict ions of the end of the world
have V?en a source of terror to many
I 'Copies through many centuries. St.
Aiu'.im me, in the fourth century, con

I.Lin.Hii species before the end of time J
In the ninih century, in countries of
O'i.i mental Europe, the people began to
i:-Ue preparation for the destruction of
: e u'tirld, then prophesied to be near at
i :.;.!. They abandoned their fields and
:l.r workshops, and threw themselves
w '.; ; .(it of the altar; they gave their
- o I he churches and monestaries.
T i e;nl was tocomewith the beginning
i f iiiL- thousandth year of the Christian
era. The fatal day came. But the sun
c 'iitinujd to shine in the vault of the
lieaxeiis. the stars remained in" tl.eir
1 laces and the people returned to their
customary pursuiis. But the prophets
vere not discouraged, and Arnault de
V.iieneuve,. a Frenchman, fixed the date
:or the tinish in i:93 and again a mia
iake had been made in the direful horo
fdipe. Xevt came Jonathan StofTer, a
ernian asirolusrer. who announced that
il.e wurld would be overwhelmed by
a delude in 1021. and a worthy theologian
o: 'louiouse constructed an ark.
In l.V.i'J the end of the world was an
nounced in France, and the wildest ter
ror prevailed. Hetiry IV, who had not
been any too good a Protestant, and was
ihi better as a Catholic, laughed at this

of il.e popes, ten in number, who should
reirii before the end of the world should
come. And these are the names: First,
the present pope. Plus X; then will come
Paul VI, Pius XL Gregory XVI, and so
on, concluding with Peter II, who shall
be the last pope who will occupy the
papal chair when the end comes. As
popes reign an average of twelve years
each, the grim prophet only allows a
century more of the world and then all
will be over. This prophesy, however.

Everywoman at The Lexing
ton Opera House.
The dramatic spectacle, "Everywo
man," in many ways the most talked
about play of recent times, is to be of
fered by Henry W. Savage at the Lex
ington Opera House Jan. 1, 2, 3, with
matinees on the 1st and 3d. This unique
production has made such an extraordi
nary success in England, in addtien to
it American triumph and has been wit
nessed by three millions of people dur
ing the three, years which have elapsed
since its first performance and it is now
being played iu half a dozen foreign
"Everywoman," In short, is nonde
script in the matter of classification. It
partakes of the nature of an opera, dra
ma and musical comedy, and yet in re
ality it does not belong to any of the
three classes. It was suggested to the
author, the late Walter Browne, by the
morality play, "Everyman," which was
performed thioughout America a few
years ago by a group of English players
under the leadership of Ben Greet, yet
the latter work was gloomy and morbid,
while "Everywoman" is bright, witty
and abounds in comedy.
The work is on a vast scale and repre
sents a cash outlay of upwards of $0J,-
000 It is considered by Henry W. Sav
age as his greatest triumph as a produc
er. The cast is a long one and includes
37 speaking characters. Over 150 peo
ple are employed in the production.
The accompanying music is one of the
features. It is symphonic in character
and includes 23 numbers, which were
especially composed for "Everywoman"
by George Whitefleld Chadwich, Dean
of the New England Conservatory of
Music, of Boston. A special symyhony
orchestra is carried by the organization
to properly render the score. The cos
tumes for the production are especially
rich and represent the very last word of
the Parisian designers. The title role
is played by Thais Magrane, a young
woman of exceptional dramatio gifts
and superb beauty. The principal mala
role is performed by Elmer Graddin.

Mr. Haden Lupires Suddenly.
The death Wednesday evening of Mr.
Geo. Haden, at his home near Million,
came as a great shock and surprise to
bis relatives and friends. Mr. Haden
had been complaining for about two
weeka of not feeling well, yet he was
never sufficiently ill as to render him
bedfast and on Wednesday was thought
to be considerably improved. Late in
the afternoon deceased was reclining on
a couch and his faithful wife went to bis
side, being attracted by his heavy breath
ing, and reached the afflicted man just
as life passed out. Mr. Haden was one
of the best known farmers of thai sec
tion of the county, where be had spent a
life of 60 years. He was a member of
the Christian church and well liked by
all who knew him. He is turvived by
bis wife and one child. Funeral servic
es were conducted Thursday morning by
Rev. O. J. Young, followed by inter
ment in the family burying ground near
bis iale home.

Some part if s brought a number of fine
beef hides to Win. Stillmsn's place this
week and offered them for sale. Mr.
Stlllman became suspicious and began
questioning the men. They left imme
diately without making a sale. Later
the hides were found over the fenee near
the Clark's Run crossing, on the Stan
ford pike. Officers think it possible
thai the parties had stolen the cattle,
butchered them and then offered the

The corn and tobacco crops in general
all over the country the past season were
very inferior, and in consequence seed
corn and tobacco seed next spring will
be in great demand and at a premium.
In view of this fact, farmers should be
gin making arrangements for their seed
early, before they are called upon to pay
exorbitant prices. Overhaul your corn
and see if any of it is available for seed
ing purposes; if not, make arrangements
with your neighbor. Do not put this
matter off, or you may have to pay ex
orbitant prices later.
