After the opening hymn had been Sung and another read . Madiera Rose and Euid he would make a few remarks which lie Lead hoped some members the congregation would have made Long since. He said it a matter to be ashamed that lie should be forced to make such a state Lieut. He then reviewed briefly the history his pastorale. He Hud been called eleven years ago at a salary �1,800 per year with a verbal Promise �2,000. He found the con Gregal Ion numbering sixty worship plug in a Little Frame Church ninth and grand Avenue. He built the Church up until it quadrupled. About four years ago the Church built the edifice in which they us Praise god at a Cost about �20.000, which they paid �15,000, leaving a debt �5, my which bears �500 Auu Ual in Terest. Or. Madiera then proceeded with Bis remarks and said that the Church was indebted to him about �500 Worth. The officers the Church had reduced his salary in Point fact just enough to the interest the Church debt. He did not object to paying Hia proportion the Church debt but he did not feel that he could i Ford to it All. He needed the Money. Hia personal Honor was at stake because that Money was pledged to debts. The officers could not reduce a salary without per Juring themselves.

This prophecy was a Little More definite than Tho Oue Mother Shipton for it detailed the Maimer in which the Earth a destruction was to he accomplished. This was in Brief that there is at present in the universe a body appearing Small perhaps in size by reason its distance from Hie Sun but almost inconceivably dense by reason the amount matter which is crowded into it which in proceeding directly toward the Sun. Borne time during Uit a year the prediction i Leges this great to Nash will fall into our luminary and the immense heat suddenly generated thereby will destroy All the higher forms life the Earth. It was very soberly stated that the people it the poles although their temperature would lie greatly increased might possibly survive the terrible heat and thus re people the Earth. The event thus detailed was called a it was True not True Aud to Settle the que nation which certainly possesses Consi Deabie individual interest the journal correspondent has been obtaining the views the government astronomers the subject. The naval Observatory was the first Point visited. Prof. Hall though Able to discover Mars sul elites has not yet Foupil the Comet which is to play such a important Purl in the destruction the world. A it is Hie first time i have been made aware the impending danger a he said As lie glanced Over Hie article which the correspondent showed him. A but can t there lie any foundation for such a prediction a a Only in tills that i have somewhere a statement that the Comet 1812 was to return about this time. Hut we know nothing certain. Indeed it is impossible to know anything positive about Cometa. We can Only observe such a very Small portion their very immense orbits that we cannot estimate their return with exact precision but the likelihood its falling into the Sun striking the Earth even if it did return is a do you think unit lie Earth will Ever be struck by a Comet a a there is just about one Chance in a million that such a thing will come to a and if it did a a in my opining no one need fear the consequences in the least. But these mutters have always had a Strong bold 00 Hie Public i remember As far Back As 1843 that a great Comet was seen in Tho heavens. By coincidence the Mille rites about that time predicted the end tiie world. You May not believe it but the appearance that Comet made a great Many converts to that Faith a a then you Are not concerned about this prediction a a not much. I Doh to care even to speculate about it for Here Are Many matters fur More value to which my time can be better professor was found in his room busily at work. To laughed As he read the article which the correspondent showed him. A i done to know Uny Lhing about it a he said us lie Laid it his desk which was covered wit i calculations. A you see there Are periodical Waves speculation among Amateur astronomers and i suppose thin is the latest. Homely dues they labor to show that the spots the Sun exert great influence mundane affairs and sometimes to show the connections meteoric showers Aud comets. These gentlemen speculate ingeniously. People always read that sort matter without once Eudea Vordig to ascertain the real facts in Hie Cuse. For inst Ioe there is an apparently Well authenticated tradition that Tycho Brahe an Early astronomer predicted that this year would be one great sickness and general Ether terrible tilings because four planets Venus Jupiter Saturn and Neptune would be in a is that not so a the professor laughed More heartily than Ever. A course not a he said. A the planets do not come in conjunction this year at All. In addition to this Neptune was not Din covered until Tycho Brahe had been dead about 300 years and lie could not therefore have predicted in conjunction wit i anything. Yet i suppose that three out every five pee pie have been More less influenced by Liis prediction and some have gone to sleep it night thinking the awful events which were going to a do you think that the predicted re appear Luce the Comet 1812 is sufficient ground for Tho statement that the world will come to a end Liis year a Quot i do not think a answered prof. Kastman a that this prediction the end the world arose from that source. It is True that some the French astronomers who have been studying kick a a Comet which was supposed to have a period 8,000 years have announced that it might appear some time within this Century. But my idea it that Liis article if it did not originate altogether in some imaginative brain was based a statement regarding swifts moving directly toward Tho Earth. Had his observations been Correct Bis conclusions would have been justifiable. When however to looked at tiie Comet through our Glass we detected a very rapid motion visible even without the Aid the measurements ordinarily used. Prof. Frisby who has been making a study tiie orbit swifts Comet finds that it Lias a period about five and a half years. To there is no danger it talking the Earth falling into the Sun. If there is any other Comet coming i done to know prof. Harkness was also Busy with some astronomical tallies but took time to carefully Reud Over the article. A what do you think it a shed the correspondent when lie had finished Reading. A i can dispose it in three Senten Ces in tiie first place there is no evidence that any Comet is about to fall into tiie Sun. Second if a Elt met ill fall into the Sun it is not Likely that it would heat that body sufficiently to cause serious damage to the Earth Aud lastly physicists do not believe As the article states that the falling meteors into the Sun is the principal source its beat. To far As is now known the Only adequate source seems to lie the shrinking the suns diameter produced by the action its own a a that seems to Settle the whole matter a commented the correspondent. A that is what i meant it should do. I think thut articles that kind Quot sail he pointing to extract Quot Are not Worth a moment s consideration except to expose their very Absurdity a prof. Newcomb who was found at his residence did not see Why people should get interested ill such unmitigated nonsense. A but they will get interested a be said Quot for the other morning i found my desk a letter from a gentleman who had read Liis prediction Ard wanted to know whether it wus True.
