The number 666 used in the Bible as symbolizing the beast Is a constant source of speculation as to what per sonage the mystic numeral indicates According to Prof. S. E. Slocum of the University of Cincinnati, the key to the riddle lies in the fact that In the case of the Greek form of the name of Nero, written In Hebrew characters, the letters of the name have each a numerical significance according to the number notation of the Hebrews, and the sum of the numbers Is 666 The apostle in excoriating the em peror would have ?ound it unsafe to mention him outright, or in some ob vious symbolism, such as in Latin or Greek numbers, while using Hebrew characters would be fair concealment to Roman eyes. The other imagery of the Book of Revelation works out strikingly in accordance with the as sumption that John was writing dis creetly about the persecuting Roman emperor. Women and the Movies. I believe the next generation of women will be more interesting in every way, because of the stimulus given to their lives by the motion pictures. I notice so much difference in the women I meet since the pic tures have become popular. The en tire world has been visualized for them ; It has been like a universal edu cation. Not merely for the women who have lacked advantages, mind you, but more especially for the type of women whose outlook has been limited by their Intellectual concepts ? who could not be made to believe that there was anything worth while outside of their special circle of culture. ?

A ttdbutp in Verne te the Memory of Wellington Bird Composed by a Friend and Former Neighbor. A Serapli down from heaven sent, Wellington, thy life on earth is spent, 'Twas not in vain the Seraph said, 'Twas lifted up his weary head. Thy work is done thy suffering o'er, Come go with?me to yon bright shore, Agone they fled earth knows no balm Save to sing alone a sweeter psalm. Across the swelling dismal flood They sing alone t'was" by the blood, Your savior crossed this way before, Farewell to 'earth, their spirits soar. Behold, they reach the heavenly gate, Ajar it stands, you're not too late, Come, join this band you've sought so long, The heavenly choir, the blood wash ed throng. This stalwart man his strenth de manded, T'was lent his neighbor when com manded, His moral ^ove it knew no bounds, His name it now immortal sounds. His prayer ascends his thoughts so pure, His life so true it will endure, His choice while here was only trust, But now he lives among the just. We beard him read that book so well, He loved it much no tongue can telli Its sacred page, its lesson bright, He's only gone where is no night. Who thenwill fill his humble berth? That holy corner at the church, They'll miss him there^a vacant place He's only gone to see God's face. His body rests beneath the sod, His spirit gone to be with God, The lightnings flash he'll see no more His path will be the golden shore. If only those who're left behind, Will all his precepts bear in mind, They, too, may reach the shining fold And walk with "Well" the streets of gold. G. G.
