GERMAN EMPIRE'S END. A MONK'S REMARKABLE PROPHECY. [Newspaper Article] — Riponshire Advocate — 3 October 1914

GERMafil-EMPIRE'S END. A MONK'S REMARKABLE PROPHECY. A French cnrrespondent sends the following extract from "Science Sitt ings" of the 19th September, 1908:— "German Empire's End.—A Startling Prophecy.—Five years more and the German Empire will come to an endi So at least says a prophecy made in the 13th century by a. monk named Hermann, who lived in the monastery of Lehnin, in Brandenburg, where he wrote a work-in Latin concerning: the future destiny of Germany for many centuries. The work is styled the 'Vaticinium Lehninense/ and it is in J verses after the manner of the Sybil line books. The monk seems to have foretold the defeat at Jena and the con stitution of the Germanic federation in 1815. Unfortunately, the prophetic Hermann. foretells in plain language the downfall of the Hohenzollein dynasty, and William-II. is.destined to be the last of his race to be on the imperial throne. In 1840 William i, King of Prussia, consulted a celebrated soothsayer, who, in answer to his que...

THE DINER'S RUSE. The members of the club were tell ing yarns, when the quiet man in the corner was asked to contribute. "Well, said he, "I once entered a restaurant where they, weigh you be fore eating, and then after eating,, and then charge you by weight. I had a good feed, and was charged ten shillings. The next time I went I took in my pockets bricks, weights and such-like. I was weighed, and then went upstairs and had a ban quet three times as big as the last. I went down and was weighed again but they couldn't make it out." He paused. ' "Couldn't make what out ?" the club members asked. "Why," answered the quiet man, "they owed me four and tuppence." ■3Jn explaining his reason for turn ing farmer, Sir Rider Haggard, the great novelist, says :—"There came a time when I was not satisfied with my output of fictional and imagina tive matter, when I thought I would like to do something practical in the .world, something that would affect those who followed."

SPECIALIST EXPLAINS CAUSE OF STOMACH TROUBLE. VALUABLE ADViC?E TO SUFFERERS. " There are many different forms of stom ach trouble," said a well-known specialist recently, " bat practically all are traceable to excessive acidity and food fermentation. That is why the results obtained from the use of drugs are usually so disappointing. Admitting fermentation and consequent acidity of the food contents to be the un derlying cause of most forms of indigestion, it naturally follows that the nse of a reliable antacid, such as the pure bixurated mag nesia which is so frequently prescribed by physicians, will.produce better results than any known drug or combination of drugs. Accordingly I almost invariably advise those who complain of digestive trouble to get some bhuratei magnesia (note the same carefully, as other forms are tin ' suitable for this purpose), from their chem ist, and take half a teaspoonful of the powder, or two 5-grain compressed tablets, with a little water, after meals....
