MILLENNIUM IN 1914. Mr. Anderson Says Two-Thirds Of the People Will Die. ^Seriously believing that- in Ootober, 1914, or in the year following, the millennium will come, the existing order of earthly things will change and that two-thirds of the people of the earth?the wicked twotbirds?will go down to eternal death, Mr. Charles H. Anderson, senior partner in tne commission firm of C. H. Anderson & Co., on South Calvert street, Baltimore, says the Sun, has canceled two policies of life insurance, which would become effective at that time. Mr. Anderson is well known in the commission trade and, being a business man, he seeB no use in continuing to pay premiums on policies that will do him no good, because the mix-up that's coming will turn the insurance companies upside down. The policies canceled were issued by New York companies and are of the 20-vear kind, one expiring in 1914 and tne other after the time the millenium is due. Lots of things are going to happen in 1914,...

2 "GO TO FATHER." As a general rule the Congressional Record is not very humorous, but the following brief paragraph from a speech made by John Sharp Williams and embalmed in that melancholy publication deserves much wider circulation. Mr. Williams was talking about the tendency of the Republican party to defer action indefinitely on all matters of immediate importance. He said: "?ver,v time anybody wants to pass any of this reform legislation, so much of which is desired by honest men in your own party, you cry out 'After the elec tlonl After the election!

2 GOiNG BACK A LITTLE The Involution of Food on Intcresting Study. What would be the sensations of one of our ancestors of the Middle Ages if he could sit down to a modern breakfast table ? To begin with fruits, these were almost unknown to the men of his period; certainly in their present form. So were most of our vegetables. The only vegetable which seems to be more or Ions indigenous over the greater part of the world is the squash-pumpkin tribe. The pumpkin is very ancient, for it dates back to Cinderella. Of course he knew the small wild cherry, with its bitter flnvor, the little wild strawberry, the raspberry, blackberry and plum. Apples, or "crabs." as Shakespeare calls them, were used in England, and generally roasted In order to deprive them of their astringency. The wildhedge orange of China and Inj dia filtered into Europe occasionally, lott 't was scarcely eat* able. Potatoes were, or course, unknown. Bananas were introduced in quantity to Europe within the lifetime of m...

'is preaching played out ?" is ' a vitally interesting question under discussion in the Southern 1 Churchman It is not played out but it is being made more of a task ami burden for the 1 preachers by the constant in- 1 crease of critical capacity and tendency among the laity. It is a truth plain to all observant men that much of the best and clearest and most useful preaching of today is done before the poorest ami most obscure congregations. Reason is obvious. The preacher who feels that lie is an instructor and leader has a very great advantage over the preacher who feels that he is uvuip. uisii uuiru ami ITIIICISOU and who is under constant strain lo reach to the supposed intellectual plane of liis hearers.
