THE STAR OFBETHLEHEM.
Astronomers Predict that it vs-ill Ap
pear in 1887.
Professor C. A. Grimmer of
Kiiiston, Jamaica, wlw is a cie
titet of fame, recently made some
wonderful propliecie in connec
tion with the action of the planets
a4d other lieavenly lod:es. Ne
says: "In ISS. the '.Star of Both
leheur will be once more seen in
'CiisohVs Ohair. and it will be
NC4Mi)tutied by a total eclipse of
tin? nit mid moon. Tlie star only
makes its iearanee i-very 315
years. It will appear and illumi
nate tin heavens and exceed in
brilliancy even Jupiter when in
opposition to the sun, and there
fore, nearer to the earth and bright
est. The marvelous brilliancy of
the 'Star oft lie Bethlehem in 18Sr
will surpass any of its previous
visitations. It will be seen even
by hooikUu. shining with a quick,
Hashing light the cntiic year, after
which it will gradually docreasein
brightness and finally disapcar. not
to return to our heavens till 2202,
or 31."i years after 1SS. This star
first attracted the attention of
modern astrononieis in the year
1?5. It was then called a new
star. It was no new star, how
ever, for this was the star that
shout- so brightly 4 n. ., and was
the star that illumined "the lieavens
at the nativity of Jesus Christ.
This star has reappeared every
il " years since, and every educat
ed astrologer i cei tain that it will
leappear in August, 1SS7. The
appearance of this stai, accom
panied as it will be by oar and
lunar eclipses, together with the
baneful influence that follows the
positions that Mar,aiul Saturn will
occupy, will cause a universal war,
and portentous floods and fearful
shipwrecks. North America will
be involved in civil strife, and a
reign of terror will prevail in the
Atlantic states unless a Napoleon
arises to quell it. There will be a
war of classes the rich will array
themselves against the poor, and
vice versa, everywhere.' (Vnild

The xssodations of the place early

Even in early youth he displayed
great depth of religious feeling.

prominent feature of his mind.
He became a frantical devotee, a
neophyte of sacred mystery. He
was all devotion, and his sincerity
could not be questioned. lie was
pious, according to the religion of
his fathers: and we must judge him
by what lie was, and not by what
we would have him to be. The
religious element in him was his
master. His convictions were
strong and his will indomuitable;
and had he been less devout, he
might have been a Hannibal or a
Ciesar. Ne took no pleasure in
human suffering. He came into
the world with a new religion. It
was Monotheism against idolatry,
more than against Polytheism. It
wa not the worship of many gods
so much as the worship of many
idols that In sought to" destroy.
He became convinced there was
but one god, and in projMgating
this belief he arrayed himself against
ancient families and ancient tradi
tions. The creed was new to him.
Everything that had leeu taught
him was antagonistic to such a be
lief. Over three hundred idols'
