Thut visions of future events and
the gift of prophesy huve been vouchsafed in all turn's to certain Individuals cannot be doubted, for we have
the evldenc,. of Holy Writ to confirm
this; but very often these predictions
ure obscure nml difficult to unravel
until the event foretold actually happens. Then we call to mind the prediction made, perhaps centuries before, and we palliate our unbelief with
tlie example of the TiOjans of old ami
the story of Cassandra.
Daniel's vision of tho "F'nir Oreat

B. C. Of the Fourth Empire the prophesy says; "A king of Tierce countenance shall arise, understanding dark

(Experimental Parma Note)
The problem of economical production. With feed at tlie present prices,
ls a question that has been worrying
producers during the past few months.
The question, of what to feed is nne
that requires more careful consideration than ever before, Peed Is high,
therefore the flock should lie culled
closely and nothing but the njOst vIr-
orous birds retained. They should not
only be fed heavily, but should bp fed
such feeds as will give results. For
this purpose It Is necessary to supply cereal, animal, vegetable aud mineral feeds.
CEREAL or grain feeds should farm
the. principal part or thc ration and
for best results a certain proportion
should he ground. The question is
what are the be:;t and most economical feeds to use. During ordinary
times, a mixture of (torn, wheat and
oats Is popular, but under present
conditions milling wheat should be
conserved for human food and only
the lower grades used for stock feed.
Lower grade wheat, oats and corn,
buckwheat and barley, these are alt
feeds that may be used to advantage.
The extent to which each ts used wlll
depend on prices.
For ground feed, "Buckwheat
screenings" may be used to advantage,
also mixtures containing. bran, corn-!
meal, ground oats or other similar j
VEGETABLE or green feed is ah-
colutely necessary to keep the flock
in thrifty coniiiOm For this purpose,
sprouted oats Is one of the very best,
it not only supplies succulence, hm
grain feed as well, Mangels, turnips,
cabbage small potatoe.*; or other similar product*- may all be used to advantage
animal nr meat feed i- a form of
ftiid that poultry keep.rs frequently
neglect supplying. It is not po il-),
for a h**n to produce eggs profitably
On an all-grain ration    sour milk li
usually available on farm*- and no
animal feed will give better results,
as it not only siiRpHoi the necessary
feed, but It also keeps the birds iu
good tone. If milk is not available,
beef -.Tap. blood flour green cut
bone or similar feeds must he supplied
io take the place of the grubs and Insects which the birds get mi ran.'.
MINERAL PEED Lime for the ecg
shells and mineral salts for the
growth nf hone must be supplied.
Small quantities may be obtained frum
such feeds as clover, but it I* necessary to feed oyster shells or something
similar to supply lime In sufficient
quantities for a heavy egg production
Sample Ration.

Patriotism and good business combine

of the banks showed an increase of
$107,000,000,   to   which   thc   Dominion
Government contributed MM.ooo.OOO
and the public $(;:i.000,000. The circulation expanded $14,1100,000 to $180,-

$450,000,000 to $403,000,000 and loans
from $9f)S.000,OOO to $1,032,089,000.

12. These are Christians, hut one
of them will die by the malediction of
the Fope Benedictus, who will be
elected inwards the end of th reign
of the Anti-Christ.
13. Tiiere will no more be seen any
priests simply to absolve the combatants, fnr priests and ninnies will fight
as well as other citizens; and further
the Pope Henedictus will have cursed
ilo* Antl-chrlst, and ii win he proclaimed that thhse who fight agaluM

11 The Papal Pull which proclaims these things will resound afar,
ami will give fresh courage to thc

Antl-chrlst will demand lhe death of

Leopard, and the white Eagle wlll not
make au cud of the Black Eagle If the
prayers and wishes of all humane
people do not aid them.
16, Humanity has never hefore
known sueh peril. The triumph ol
the Anti-christ would be that of tho
Demon oi* whom he Is ihe Incarnation.
17. It lias been said that twenty
centuries after the incarnation of the
\VJord, the boast will In bis turn Incarnate, anil menace the world with
as much of evil as the 'Divine Incarnation brought good.
IS, In the. twentieth century the
Antl-chrlst will manifest himself.
His army will exceed in numbers
anything that has ever been imagined.
There will bo Christians among his
followers, ami there will be Mohammedans ami al,*-') savage troops among
the Defenders of the I.amh.
IH In all Christendom there will
not he a small space that is not red-
sky, earth water—and even the atmosphere will he all red, for blood
will flow Into the four elements at
iiie same time,
20. The Black Eagle will hurl himself at the Cock, who will lose many
feathers, but will use his spurs heroi-
cally. Ho would speedily he reduced
lun i'ir iho aid rendered him by the
Leopard and his claws.
21. The Black l^agle will eome
from lhe Lutheran country, ami will
surprise the Cock, nnd will inva-i*
much ul his territory.
\!2. The White Eagle will come
from the northern side, and will surprise Hie Black Eagle and the other
Eagle, and will invade the country it
the Antl-chrlst.
'j;t. The Black Eagle will be forced
to retreat from tho Cock, and lhe
Cock should follow hfm into the country of the Antl-chrlst, to help the
White Eagle.
tli. None Of the battles which have
taken place hitherto up till now will
have been anything equal to those
which will take place In the Lutheran
country, for ihe Seven Angels, spoken
nf hy the Divine St. John, will now
pour out Die vials of wrath 'an Ibe
Impious laml, which signifies thai the
Lamb will ordain the complete extermination of the race of the Antl-Clirlst.
25. When the Beast sees that It
has lost, it will become furious and
will work destruction, and ftir some
months the beak of the White Eagle,
the talons of the Leopard, and the
spurs nf the Cock will rend It, Rivers
will he forded hy means of dead hod-
les whicli will divert the course of
the waters. Only tiie very distinguished, such as Generals and Princes
shall be Interred, far the carnage of
the war will he heaped together with
the victims of plague and hunger.
20, The Antl-chrlst will on several
occasions sue for peace, hut the Seven
Angels will go hefore the Three animals and Ihe Defenders of the Uimh,
mid will proclaim that peace shall

the Antl-chrlst ho crushed ag str«*»

L'7. The Three Animals and the
Agents of the Lamb cannot atop fight-
Ing whilst there remains snldiers of
ihe Antl-chrlst.
tl*. What makes the decision of
the Lamb sn implacable is thai Hie
Auil-ohri-f has pretended to ho a
Christian, and has blasphemously acted iu the Name :if God. If then he
does nol perish, the fruit or the redemption will he lost, and (he pates
of hell will have prevailed against
the Saviour, and this cannot he.
L'ii. This will be no humane war.
Tbo Three Animals and the Defenders
of the Lamb will exterminate the last
army of Ihe Antl-cb-ist, hm he battle
field will be mnde a charriel-nouse ai
largo as a big city, For the dead will
have tran,.IV>r.med the place, making
it a chain of hillocks.
30. The Antl-chrlst will lose his
crown, and will dfe in solitude and in
Insanity. His empire will be d' '' d
inlo twenty-two states, but none of
them shnll have either a force, an
army or a ship.
81, The White Eagle will drive
out the Crescent from Euifipe, where
there will remain none hut Christians,
The White Eagle will then establish
himself in Constantinople.
:ii!. Then shall commence an orn
of peace and prosperity for the wot Id
and there shall be no more war; each
nation shall bn governed by its own
conscience, and will live in justice.
Then peace shall reign nnd happiness
shall dawn on the human race.

Paragraphs 'i im s show clearly the
figure of Kaiser William It. as if his
name was actually mantioned; especially paragraph -1. where it says,
"lie will have hut one perfect arm,"
It is woll known that part of the loft
arm, as well as the left leu and all
the lefl part of the body of the Kaiser present symptoms of atrophy. In
fact for half an hour after his birth he
was thought in have beon still-born.
Well for the \\«..rld had it heen so.
Again the prediction says, "His innumerable troops will take Ilor n
motto "God with us." What presumptuous arroeanco.
Paragraphs 10 tell us, "Ho will ko
forth torch in hand, and will show no
mercy," Belgium anil France can testify to the truth of this.
in paragraph ll we read. "His pre-
leiit>uis words will he those of a
Christian, but his actions will be those
of Nero and ihe Roman persecutors."
Paragraph :i bears on ihis where it
says. "This Prince of Liars will swear
by. the Scriptures ami he will canst

and the I'nited Stiitos of America

uate Apostnlle at Washingtnn. foreshadow the fulfilment of this part of
the prediction?   Time will tell.
Paragraph 2d says. "The Antl-chrlst
will on several occasions sue fnr
peace." Has not the Kaiser on several -locaslons sued for peace both
covertly and open? But pence shall
not be accorded until his armies are
crushed "as straw  in the thresher."

Another piOphet, even earlier than
Johannes the Monk. Thomas Joseph

Ihe following predictions relating not

to Italy, and Russin. "In 17!*S there
