A "Court of Injustice. imposed fines for every evidence of afflu ence. ; eOn Sunday morning 1Mr. Mor gan preached; on the. subject of prayer.

SEVENTH-DAY ADVENTIST "IS JESUS COMING SOON?" (Condensed from and "Evangel Series" pamphlet.) [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 25 August 1949
"IS JESUS COMING SOON?" (Condensed from an "Evangel ,Series" pamphlet.) While Jesus was talking with H-is disciples on:one occasion, they asked Him :\ "Master, what shall be the'sign of Thy coming, and of the end of the world?" Jesus welcomed the question, and in an swer. to it set 'before them an out !lne of the. Christian era, conclud ing with definite signs of HIts re turn. (Mhtthew 24). John, in the Revelation, makes 'eference to these signs also: "'And, lo, there was a great earth .guake;' and the sun became b)lack , and .the moon became as 'lood; and the. stars .. ; fell unto the earth." (Revelation 6:12-13). 'Without doubt, the earthquake •eferred to in Revelation 6:12 was '.hht centred at Lisbon- on Novem bei' 1, 1755, and which agitated the greater part of the earth's sur face. Some years later, on May 19, 1780, there occurred al inex nlicable darkening of. the sun. A 'eliable witness described the ap learance of the moon that night as ""a' ball of blood."

EDITORIAL PAGE The Standard FEATURE COMMENTS Radio Service. [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 25 August 1949
EDITORIAL PAGE &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Thursday, August 25, 1949 &nbsp; The unfortunate epidemic at St. Arnaud once again has drawn attention to the shocking neglect of our legisla- tors in regard to the pasteurisation of milk. Six years ago, Cheltenham was ravaged by the scourge of typhoid. Many died, many had their constitutions permanently impaired. What has been done since? Moorabbin Coun- cil, and Cr. Alex. Caldwell, in particular, has striven without ceasing for the Government to implement its legislation in regard to the matter. The warning issued by Dr. Ferguson, of the Health De- partment,. should not fall on deaf ears. It should, too, awaken our State Parliament to its duty. Whilst Parlia- mentarians and Municipal Councillors continue to play the popular Australian game "passing the buck," the commu- nity remains unprotected against virulent disease. The present position is disgraceful. &nbsp;
