Knoxviu.k, Tenn., Fol?. iM.?"Daven
port's bricks" was the label on a large
bar of brass displayed in a jewelry store
window, and poopta by (he hundreds
jostled over one another in an eiTort to
grtxe noon it. Henry Da veil port, an old
and wealthy farmer living one mile out of
town, was successfully robbed of $V>M)
last Saturday, but did not until to-day
divulge the affair. Davenport was met at
bis home by a man giving his name a*
Joseph Hines. who related a story that
would set anyone afire, how he had fallen
in with an Indian in Colorado, who wag
one of a tribe who knew where gold with?
out measure abounded, and Wanted to
dispose of a half interest to him (Hines.)
Where was the Indian? In the woods
near by guarding his treasure, gold bricks.
There they went aud I here the Indian
was found to show that everything was
right. Hines asked Davenport to bore
into one of the bricks, which he did. To
the city they came nnd culled upon "a
Government assay ist" at the Yendome, a
confederate of Mines. The gold was pro?
nounced superfine, and Davenport was
captivated. 11?? bought the two bricks,
paving ^.."Ml in cash to the stranger, who
disappeared. Davenport has several
pounds of brass, and is getting the 1 align
on -?51 sides. He is worth, perhn ps, $100.000.
Annas Magna?.,
ttlti Stosk Hay, Feb ! ">. 1893.
iiditof Pout:?The Chaldean philoso?
phers had also their A/unus Magnus, or
great year, who calculated Ihc eud of the
period occupied in the retrograde move?
ment of Ibe stars through one complete
circumference?a phenomenon due to the
precision of the equinoxes, and accomp?
lished, as mod.>ni science has shown, in a
period of 21,000 to 26,000 years.
The ancient Scythiams, in their dispute
wild the Egyptians, in reference to the
relative antiquity of their respective na?
tion*; reminded them that the world under?
goes revolutions both by fire and water.
The ISgy piiaus, according to llato,
fancied iliut the heavens und the oartli
originated in a promiscuous pulp. From
this the elements Separated ol their own
accord: fire sprang from the upper re?
gions; I he air began to move, The
warmth ol the sun bred living creatures
innumerable in the plastic mud, and t liese,
according to ilie predominences of" the
various elements, betook themselves to
air, tiie water, or the solid land. Man
was generated from the slime of the river
Nile. Ky a gradual improvement of the
lower creatures, and a gradual perfection
of the globe, the world became what the
Egyptian found it, and was destined to
flourish through an interval ol' time ex?
pressed by their Annus Magnus, or great
year?a cycle composed as with the Chal?
deans, of the revolution of the sun. moon
and planets, and terminating when these
return together to the same sign whence
they were supposed lo have set out.
The duration of this groat cycle, ac?
cording to Orpheus, was one hundred and
twenty thousand years; according to oth?
ers, it was three hundred and sixty ihou
sand; and by Cassander it was taken at
three hundred and sixty thousand years.
At the end of each great cycle, the
world was Supposed to lie subjected to ihc
destructive ordeal of fire or water, by
which it was renovated, to become the
abode of a regenerated race of men.
The Hindoo cosmogony, which was per?
haps the germ of all that was taught by
the western nations, gives prominence to
the doctrine of secular catastrophes and
rcnovatiens.
The "First Sole Cause," says the insti?
tutes of Menu, "thinks within himself, 1
will create worbls." Water is then brought
into being, over the sufrace of which
moves Brahma, the Creator.
Brahma first effects the emergence of
the land from the waters, and the crea?
tion of the firmament. He then vivifies
the earth, .'u succession, with plants, ani?
mals, celestial creatures and man.
The sin springs from his eyes, the air
from his ear, the fire from his mouth.
From his mouth, his arm, his thigh, his
foot, proceeds the founders of i lie Chief
Hindoo Costes.
Brahma, having accomplished his task.
"Changes the time of energy for the hour
of repose." He sleeps during 3,320 mil?
lionsof years?a day of Brahma?at the
end of which time the world is destroyed
by fire. The fiamos are at length quench?
ed by the fall of incessant rains for a hun?
dred years, and the waters, overspreading
.he earth, fill the middle regions, and
intimidate heaven. The world is enveloped
in darkness, and the universe is reduced
to one vast ocean.
The breath of Vishnu, next becomes a
strong wind l>y which the clouds are dis?
persed, and the Deity then appears in the
form of Brahma, reposing on his serpent
couch upon the deep. As soon as he
awakes the world is renewed, to be again
destroyed and again renovated after each
kalpa. or day of Brahma's existence.
*'For there are creations and destructions
of worlds innumerable." A^ the end,
however, of a hundred years, each con?
sisting of 300 kalpas, and each kalpa of j
4,3 20 millions of our years, Brahma, him?
self, and all things with him, will cease to
exist. J. M. Kyle.
