OYSTERS Fried, OYSTERS Stewed, 25cts* The author of a once famous book, I Prof. Dupuis, advocates the extreme | age of the human race by the Egyptian ! zodiacs. Proud of his discoveries he 1 writes: "Thus I have cast the anchor of truth into the midst of the oceau of I ages." But he had cast his anchor into j the midst of an ocean of error instead ; of into that of truth, for 30 years later the great Champollion discovered the j secret of hieroglyphics, by which, as it ; is now admitted by all, it is found, that the Egyptian Zodiacs date only from I the Roman period and Dupuis' theory ■ was proved a mere dream. Sixth Argument: THE EXTINCT CIVILIZATIONS. The Antiquity of Man* I I The extreme antiquity of man has ! been maintained on the ground of the extreme age of extinct civilization in China, Egypt, India, Babylon. But Brockhaus and other scientists have j conclusively proved that the historical period in China does not reach farther | from us than 2200 years before Christ . Indian event, is tne descent ot tne Arj an tribes from Asia to the the plains of j ! Hindostan > about t he y ear 2000 before ! ! Christ • l-'ailing in the case of India j 'and China, they turn to Egypt. The ' hi()tory Egypt derived from The ; date ot ' the reign of Menes, Egypt's first t king, at 5702 before Christ; according to f Marriette Bey at 5004, B. C; according to Maspero at 4500; according to Brugsch at 4455; according to Lepsius at 3892; according to Bunsen at 3059; according ' ^o Dr. Birch at 3000; accordnigto Stuart Poole at 2717, while the late Sir G. Wilkensen ascribes the accession of Menes to the year 2691 B. C. These are all most eminent Egyptolo gists and between the higest and the lowest of those calculations there is a difference of no less than 3011 years. It would be the same as if some future j historian were to date the administra- ! f rresident Roosevelt from the j is tiön <* year 1901, while another would fix his j administration as President of these U. j in the days of the loyal Prophet, The trouble is that the Egyp- j S. David. tians never bad any Chronology and j that there are no dates from which to 1 : reckon. Prof Homer, however, tried | to prove by relics obtained from borings j in the mud of the Delta, that the Egyp tian civilization must enjoy a very high antiquity. He found a piece of pottery , a at a depth of 39 feet. According to de- j posits of mud at a given spot he con- ; eluded that bricks and pottery in Egypt | dated from 12,000 to 60,000 years back- | It is too bad. however, that Horner's ! figures were overthrown by the follow- j Sir Robert Stephenson found in mg - the Delta at a mach greater depth than j Mr. Horner's, a brick with the stamp; on it of Mahommed Ali. l"rof Horner calculated that the deposits of mud are ; only 3£ inches in a century, whilst it is ! now admitted that the mud is deposited I at the rate of 18 inches in a hundred [ the Grecian honeysuckle, dating from ! the time of Alexander the Great, have been obtained from as great depths as | Scholars now agree, that the earliest ! traces of Babylonian history date at ! most only to the year 2500 B. C. Pieces of brick stamped with i years. Mr. Horner's borings. Looked at, therefore from every point j of view, there seems no ground for | placing the appearance of man on this j earth further back than the Bible has given. Seventh Argument: THE VARIETIES of the human race, j The contrast between the negro and i .other branches ot mankind, according | t> 8ome scientists is a proof of its ex- j I treme antiquity. But let us not forget, ; | at the negro has assumed his typical j ! characteristics from special conditions j 1 in a tro l }ical country.
