AS IN CHRIST'S TIME.
Mr. C. B. L. Totten, the eminent
ecientist of New Haven, Conn., com
menting on the statement that the
planets would be in the same relative
position they were at the time of the
crucifixion of Christ, on Good Friday
(yesterday), preeents the following:
The current lunar year is one of the
most important ones upon the circle,
from both scientific and popular stand
points. Its true first of Tishri seems to
have fallen upon August 30, 1894. The
moon that was then new went full into
an eclipse on September 15, 1894. The
first contact of this latter eclipse took
place just were Moses crossed the Red
Sea, 3,389 years before. The day follow
ing the Hebrews, whose modern calen
dar, like that of the current Christian
one. is displaced by one year, one month,
and one day from its correct place, be
ing their present civil year on October 1,
1894, right out of this eclipse, that being
the origin of their New Year's day of
6654 A. M.
On the succeeding November 10th
occurred the last transit of Mercury that
this century shall see. By reversing
this transit according to its own cycles, !
we can establish the astronomical accu
racy of the literal week referred to in
the first chapter of Genesis. We mean
this, whether it be regarded as a week
of cycles, or as a literal fact of seven
normal dayB. The present moon is that
of true Nisan, and was lately (March
10th) eclipsed upon its fourteenth or
fifteenth day. It will, in tarn, eclipse
the sun upon the very middle of the
Atlantic ocean. Now, this eclipse,
which marks the middle of the current
Nisan, is just 177 days (half of 364; from
the Red Sea eclipse, with which its
month of Tishri ended. Holding to
their constant displacement, of a month
within the- years, the modern Hebrews
commence their Nisan on the next day,
March 26th, and the modern church
calendar, also adhering approximately
to the same moon and displacement for
the determinafion of their so-called
"Easter," will place the latter upon
April 14th by virtue of the arbitrary
In the meantime the most important
anniversary known to chronology slips
by us, not, indeed, uncelebrated, for a
very minor fact has brought it into local
prominence, but entirely unkept and
nnbonored among all men for that
which shall make it forever unique
throughout the ages. I refer to the 17th
of March, now celebrated as St. Fat
The grander fact, so entirely lost
eight of, so eclipsed by the minor one,
which has usurped its place, is that the
crucifixion of Jesus Christ really took
place upon the Thursday, March 17th,
29 A. D., which was the 14 of Nisan in
that particular year.
How strange a commentary is this
upon the accuracy of human necrology,
that the death of a minor saint, and one
whose date is by no means certain,
should be assigned to March 17th, while
he who actually died thereon, and to
whom we owe all of real Christianity,
has, by virtue of the arbitrarily shifting
Nisan rule of Good Friday, no actual
date at all upon bis epitaph. Yet it is
in keeping with the story of one who in
his earthly life was without place
whereon to lay his head, and after all is
not dead, but alive again.
So today is the solar anniversary of
the crucifixion, which occurred exactly
1866 Julian years ago. This is a demon
strated fact, which has been fully estab
lished by Wm. M. Page in his New
Light From the Old Eclipses ;" by H
Gratton Guineas, in his "Approaching
End of the Age," and by perhaps a
score of other able scholars, whose rep
ntations are fully established and whose
labors as a co-dieciple I have merely
studied and verified.
1 As to the actual chronology and nee
rology of the Savior's life, I am satisfied
with the evidence that he was conceived
at the spring equinox of 749 A. TJ. C,
was born at the winter solstice of 756 A
U. C, was found asking questions of the
doctors at the age of 12 in the spring of
10 A. D., was baptized on January 8, 28
A. D., a fortnight after he was 30 years
old (in literal fulfillment of Daniel ix -.24,
'25): that he had but a short avocation
of just sixty-two weeks (434 days) there
after, or, allowing forty days for the wil
derness and a lunar month of rest there
after, that he had in all bat a brief 365
day (solar year) ministry,' dating from
the first miracle at Cana of Galilee, bat
only a 354-day (lunar year) ministry,
dating from tne immediately succeeding
Passover (this in particular fulfillment
of the first clause of Daniel ix:26), and
that he was crucified dead and buried on
Thursday, March 17, 29 A. D., in the
66th year of Tiburius Caesar, in the
consolate of the two Longini (as test ified
Epiphanies). This was in the first year
of the CCII Olympiad, or the 781st year
of Rome, according to Varro. That he
arose on the third day thereafter on
Sunday, March 20, 29 A. D, and into
the vernal equinox, just thirty-two years
after his annunciation by Gabriel to
Mary. C. B. L. Totten.

THE BUSINESS MAN'S LUNCH.
Hard Work and Indigestion so
Hand in Hand.
Concentrated thought, continued in, robs
the stomach of necessary blood, and this ia
also true of hard physical labor.
When a five horse-power engine 19 made
to do ten horse-power work something- is
going to break. Very often the hard
worked man coming from the field or the
office will "bolt" his food in a few min
utes which will take hours to digest. Then
too, many foods are about as useful in the
stomach as a keg of nails would be in a
fire under a boiler. The ill-used stomach
refuses to do its work without the proper
stimulus which it gets from the blood and
nerves. The nerves are weak and "ready
to break," because they do not get the
nourishment they require from the blood,
finally the ill-used brain is morbidly wide
awake when the overworked man at
tempts to find rest in bed.
The application of common sense in the
treatment of the stomach and the whole
system brinjrs to the busy man the full en
joyment of life and healthy digestion when
he takes Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets to
relieve a bilious stomach or after a too
hearty meal, and Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery to purify, enrich and
vitalize the blood. The " Pellets " are tiny
sugar-coated pills made of highly concen
trated vegetable ingredients which relieve
the stomach of all offending matters easily
and thoroughly. They need only be taken
for a short time to cure the biliousness,
constipation and slothfulness, or torpor, of
the liver; then the "Medical Discovery"
should be taken in teaspoonful doses to in
crease the blood and enrich it. It has a
Deculiar effect upon the lining membranes
of the stomach and bowels, toning up and
strengthening them lor ail time. a. he
whole system feels the effect of the pure
blood coursinsr throuerh the body ana the
nerves are vitalized and strengthened, not
deadened, or put to sleep, as the so-called
celery compounds and nerve mixtures do
but refreshed and fed on the food they
need for health. If you suffer from indi
gestion, dyspepsia, nervousness, and any
of the ills which come from impure blood
and disordered stomach, you can cure
yourself with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery which can be obtained at any
drug store in the country.
