Timid persons first began to look Forward with some alarm to the year that is about to open when several years ago Ali key to the so Call prophetic symbolism of t lie great Pyramid of Egypt was made Public backed by the name and of the in Ritzig h astronomer l Iazzi Smyth. Others using r. Smyth s observations and measurements have got much Lurther than he did in i awing startling inferences but no one can read his Book without perceiving How powerfully it must effect those who have the s igl test leaning towards us perdition or credulity. In the heart of Egypt s greatest Marvel has All the Charm and interest of or.

As if tie evil Eye of m thur Shipton and the mystical menace of the great Pyramid were not enough for okie poor Twelvemonth to Bear the horrors of the Perthelia Huye been upon the coming year. About two years ago cerium pain Phletus were circulated about the country purporting to be written by men of science Aud predicting thai awful consequences to Mankind would result from All the great planets reach ing their Perthelia. Or nearest Points to the Sun together. According to these prophets the sinister effect of the Perthelia were to begin inking their appearance this Lull when Jupiter passed his Pence Ion and next car the scythe of death was to be put to the Harvest in the far East and sweep Westward with a swathe As Broad a the continents until it reached the l a tie Ocean.
