"The Wonderful Prophet,'' and runs " There is now in this time, at this time, a strange and wonderful prophet, of whom, it is said that his generation was before Adam was created. Hje is ndne' of those prophets, viz.,: the wandering Jew, the son of Noah, nor an old Levi to, nor yet John the Baptist, as some people may sup pose, but before they were he was. The Holy Scriptures-make mention to him, par ticularly in Mat the w, Mark, Luke, and John, so we know that he is no imposture. He knew not his own parents, uor did he ever suck his mother's breasts. His board is red as vermilion. He goes'* barefoot like a grave friar both winter and summer, He wears no hat, but may be seen oftentimes with a crown upon his head.

A Great Drought. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 18 February 1885

j ' | A .Great Ifcroiiglit. I Richard A. .Proctor.says that the age of the-earth is placed by some at 500,000,000 years, and still others of later time, among them, the l)uke of Argyll, place it.at 10,000,000 years. .None-.place-it-lower than 10,000,000, knowing what processes have been gone through. The earth must have become'.old. New ton surmised although he could give no reason for • it, that the earth atone time would become per fectly dry. Since then it has been found that New I ton was correct. As the earth keeps coaling it will become porous, and great cavities will he formed in the interior which will take in water. It,is estimated .that this process is now in progress so far that the water diminishes at the .rate of the thickness of a sheet of writing paper a year. At this rate in 9,000,000 years the water will have sunk a mile, and in 15,000,000 .years everv trace of water will have disappeared from ,the face of the. globe.
