It is the favorite expression of all the prophets in designating, the time when God's Judg ments shall .fall upon those who are His enemies; in fact It is equiv alent to the term, "the day of Judgment" It refers to a definite time, known only to God, and to an event as certain of fulfillment as that night follows day.. In fact, because it. is the Lord's day, the day when He shall descend Into the midst of men and take a final accounting, we know for a certainty that the day of the Lord marks an exact point of 'time In tho Divin economy, and that nothing can delay or prevent its coming.

The Ashton Gazette R. J. DEAN. Publisher. ASHTON, ILLINOIS In West Africa the natives hiss when they are astonished; in the New Hebrides when they see anything beautlful. The Basutos applaud a popular orator in the assemblies by hissing him. Even in Spain waterfalls are now being used as-a source of electric power. In one case 23 small villages are supplied from the power station. In Italy the employment of innumerable watertails has enormously increased the output of manufactured silk. "Here," says an English writer, "is a form of power that will last longer than Great Britain's coal fields. In Germany, where Indictments are not made by grand juries, and where there is no habeas corpus act, it has sometimes happened that innocent people have been confined in jail for many months.

RAHAB AND THE SCARLET THREAD i Sermon by the "Hiifhway and Byway" Preacher. ( Copyright, lWt, by J.M.KJsou.) Chicago, Sunday, July 17, 1904. Text: "By faith Rahab the harlot perished not with them that were disobedient, having received the spies with peace." Heb. 11:31. HAT a marvelous example of God's grace, mercy and love we have in Rahab, that woman of the town, that daughter of the heathenish Jericho. How startling and strange it seems to find her name among those of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and Moses; yea more, that, as Matthew's genealogy shows us, she should have become the ancestor of the Christ. But when we consider that it was God who lifted her to such heavenly associations, that it was God's finger which inscribed her name there .along side those of the patriarchs and .prophets, we must recognize her exaltd place in sacred history and seek to learn the lesson which this woman and her remarkable story would teach. Let. us turn to the book of Joshua and read how and why sh...

The Ashton Gazette R. J. ASHTON. DEAN, Publisher. ILLINOIS The "busy bee" In a type of iinlustry the world over, but we get a new ionception of how busy the little insect really is when we are told that it lakes the nectar from at least 250,000 flowers to make one pound of honey. That is what an experienced bookkeeper says, and his estimate is founded on a. careful calculation. How long does a dream last? To the dreamer it sometimes seems to endure for hours, and the general impression is that dreams continue for minutes at least, while the fact is that the longest dream appears to be confined within a solitary second, even though the events of it may impress the dreamer for days.

It is perhaps just as well that the District ol Columbia can not choose any ol' the men who will be sent to the electoral college tiext November to elect n president, for the duty of making' the selection would cause something' like a family quarrel. Three of the four principal candidates, Theodore Roosevelt, senator Fairhanks, and ex-senator Henry G. Davis, are about as well known here as any of our residents. We feci a proprietary right in them. Their faces are familiar on our streets. The necessity of discriminating between them and giving preference to some over the others would always result in neighborhood contentions and personal grievances. They all possess striking characteristics.
