THEY PROPOSE TO FIND OUT Report, Some Tenjslp IJellev* Wf< fJve 1 nut eta the Kwrth. Most people are of the opinion that they live upon the surface of the earth. But if the great expedition of the Koreshan scientists, soon to begin elaborate and costly observations on the coast of Florida, neat the little village of Naples, is fortunate enough to experlencejfavorable weather during April and May and to correctly apply the apergy theory of John Jacob Alter, the world will Ilarn with amaze* ment that this terrestrial globe la a vast hollow ball. Upon the inner sides of this ball the human race crawls like so many files- imprisoned within a goblet, and the space remaining is occupied by different planets. Furthermore, the mighty orb which we, in bur benighted ignorance, consider to be the sun, is not the sun at all, Nobody ever saw £the sun. As for the law of gravitation and the movements of the spheres, and other j;fundamental astronomical data, they are all grosu delusions based upon an utter misconception of &the universe, • -. • . But the first question to present itself to the mind of the unprejudiced observer is how the Koreahan scientific commission in Florida can prove its main tenet. How does it arrive at its conclusion that we live in the interior of the earth and not upon Its surface? What is the outside of the earth made of and how is it possible to disprove the contentions of modern astronomy with its accurate predictions ? In reply there are two facts to start with. Th'e Copernican theory is a hypothesis into which all the facts, as yet known, seem to fit. That is to say, astronomers proceed upon the theory o. E, Werfc ending AptU 10.

The Story of the Beautiful Life of Mls» Anna Hoover. • The community was indeed shocked •when they heard of the death of Miss, Anna Hoover, of Penrose, 111., April 8, 1897. Barbara Anna Hoover was the second daughter of Amos Hoover, of Jordan. She was born in Jordan December 29,1875] and has always lived here. Anna, as she was familiarly known, was B lovely young girl; loved by all who knew her. She had a bright and sunny disposition and a smile for every one. . She, with her sister, Eva, spent' the winter-visiting relatives and friends in Pennsylvania. She was homo scarcely a month when she departed this lif e.She contracted a severe cold and, Saturday night, April 3,'took to her bed with lung fever. She was apparently getting better and her death was not expected by her own family. Everything was done for her that loving hands could do. Anna was laid to rest in a beautiful white casket'With pink and white roses all about her. She looked so lovely that none could wish her back to this world of sin and sorrow, although the parting was hard. Many floral tributes were sent for this occasion. A beautiful pillow of roses by the Y. P. C. U, of East Jordan, of which she was an active member. Also a dozen c.Ula lilliea presented by the \V. C. T. U. The pall bearers were some of her school-mates and .near friends. • She was a good Christian girl, trusting in her Savior and faithful to the end. She was converted about five years ago and united with the United Brethren church at Penrose, of which she was an earnest and faithful member. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. Bender, of the U. B. church, assisted by Rev. Nice, of the kennon- JtQ church, The text chosen was 1 Peter 4;7. • -.Herremains were.laid beside those of her mother in the Mennonite cemetery. A large jponcourse of people gathered to pay their last respects to one that was loved and will be greatly missed. Besides her parents, she leaves three brothers and two sisters: Ira G., Arthur/Fred, Mrs, Ida Millhouse and Miss Eva Hoover, Thus has returned to God a beautiful life, That wee fair form lies cold In death, Her spirit pure lu Heaven Is West; Twain hard to bM glad earth teewell, '• But yet, HadoethaUtWugsweU, There is u ciiUu for those who waep, »fc# In twi dead, tut swife ia i A jttuuebil itijtt to Iter i» giveu that the planets revolve around the suu and that the'law of gravitation is the cause. But every astronomer admits that this theory has never been absolutely .'proved. It is believed in, however, because all astronomical calculations are based upon it, and such calculations are always accurate. The other fact which the believers in this peculiar doctrine dispute is the law of gravitation. This law, too, is a theory. J g In support, of their 'belief they cite the fact that the movements of celestial bodies are becoming more and more erratic from the standpoint of gravitation. The Koreshan believes that the sun is the center of this hollow globe which we call the Earth. It rests in a sea of aboron. Outside that is another sea of hydrogen, and then cornea the sea of atmosphere, which we breathe." The Koreshans number 20,000,'and^it is said they are constantly growing in numerical strength. A detailed report of the results of the expedition will be made at its conclusion, - ' —•An imaginative travellng^-^man stuffed a local newspaper, man this morning with a big story regarding the appearance of the much-talked-of ( airship that is popularly supposed to be cutting wide swaths through the heavens in this immediate vicinity.
