3 A distant rumbling and quivering of the earth foretell the internal action of pent-up gas. To avoid danger from this source people have to escape from their houses to the 6open space. A conical cloud, hanging like a horoscope in the air, foreshadows a cyclone. To escape from this calamity people prepare shelter in caves of the earth.
9 They who discern the face of the skies cannot always discern the mental signs of these times, and peer through the opaque error. Where my vision begins and is clear, 12theirs grows indistinct and ends.

Between the two I stand still; or, accepting the premonition of one of them, 18I follow his counsel, take a few steps, then halt. A true sense not unfamiliar has been awakened. I see the way now. The guardians of His presence go before me. I 21enter the path.

The Christian Science Journal was the oldest and 30only authenticated organ of Christian Science up to 1898. Loyal Scientists are targets for envy, rivalry, slander; and whoever hits this mark is well paid by the 348 348:1umpire. But the Scientists aim highest. They press for‐ward towards the mark of a high calling. They recog‐3nize the claims of the law and the gospel. They know that whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap. They infringe neither the books nor the business of others; and 6with hearts overflowing with love for God, they help on the brotherhood of men. It is not mine but Thine they seek.
