They spent more time In India than
was first expected. They decline to
give any Intimation respecting their
report until their return to New York.
To make their work as comprehen
sive as possible the Committee mem
bers divide their attention, each one
specializing, except Tastor Russell,
who generalizes, and joins In the com
parison of notes. We report Pastor
Russell's discourse of today, from the
text which he said referred directly
to the Grout Pyramid located near this
city: "In that day there shall be an
nltnr to the Lord In the midst of the
land of Egypt for a sign and
for a witness." (Isaiah xlx. 19. 20.)
Not only did God mention prophetically
the groat pyramid In Isaiah, but also
In Jeremiah xxxll. 20. where we read
that "He set signs and wonders In the
land of Egypt, even unto this day."
It Is intensely Interesting to visit
this In ml of the Pharaohs, at one time
bo Intimately associated with God's
"chosen people" Abraham, Isaac, Ja
cob. Joseph and his brethren. It Is
Interesting to Imagine ourselves back
at the period of the Exodus of the
Israelites, to note the place where the
Israelites probably crossed the tongue
of the J ted Sea upon the sandbar made
bare by a strong wind. It was Inter
esllng to visit what the Arabs still des
ignate the "Wells of Moses." and to
note that they are still brackish or bit
ter springs, "Waters of Marali."
Itnt to me the most Interesting thing
In this ancient land Is (he Great Pyra
mid referred to In our text. Its lorn
ion Is remarkable, and Its sl.c cenlu
ries ago marked It as one of the Seven
Wonders of the world -a building cov
ering nearly thirteen acres. Its sclen
iillr lessons brought forth during t he
past fifty years by astronomers and
other scientists are still more wonder
ful, but most wonderful of all to me
are lis prophet Ic teachings, llrst brought
to our attention by Prof. Plnzzl Smyth.

The Pyramid Is located on an ele

.hone to arouse sufficient Interest to
lead you. in;; hearers, to read tho par

gestlons by way of bringing your cu
rloslty to the point of Investigation.
Scientists tell as that the measure
ment of Its base on the four sides, at
the level of Its sockets, when added
gives as many pyramid eulilis as there
are days In four years, to th? (ruction
Including the leap-year fraction. The
diagonal measurements across tho
base. N. E. to S, W.. nnd N. W. to
S. E.. give ns many Inches ns thero
are years In the precesslonnl cycle of
the slurs. ThU cycle astronomers had
already concluded to be 2.ri.N27 years,
nnd the Pyramid corroborates the con
clusion. The distance to the sun Is
Indicated by the height and angle of
the Pyramid to be DI.SI0.2T0 miles,
which almost exactly corresponds with
the latest figures reached by astrono
mers. The Pyramid also has Its own
way of Indicating standards of weights
nnd measures, based upon thu size and
weight of the earth.
The Rev. Joseph Selss observed.
"There Is n yet grander thought em
bodied In this wonderful structure.
Of Its five iKiluta there Is one of spe
cial preeminence, In which all Its side
nnd exterior Hues terminate. It Is the
summit corner, which lifts Its solemn
index finger to tbo sun at midday, nnd
' X I
by Its distance from the base tells the
mean distance to that un from the
earth. And If we go back to the date
which the Pyramid gives Itself, we
find a far sublimcr Indication. Science
has at last discovered that the sun Is
not a dead center, with planets wheel
ing about It. but Itself stationary. It
s now ascertained that the sun also
Is In motion, carrying with It Its splen
did retinue of comets, planets, its sa
tellites and theirs, around come other
and vastly mightier Center.
"Astronomers are not yet fully agreed
as to what or where that Center is.
Some, however, believe that they have
found the direction of It to be The
Pleiades, and particularly Alcyone, the
central one of the renowned Pleladic
stars. Alcyone, then, as far as
Science has been able to perceive.
would seem to be the midnight throne'
in which the whole system of gravita
tion has Its Central Seat, and from
which the Almighty governs Ills Uni
verse. And here is the wonderful cor
responding fact, that at the date of tiie
Great Pyramid's building the
Pleiades were distributed over the
meridian of this Pyramid, with Al
cyone precisely on the line. Here,
then. Is a pointing of the highest ar.d
subllmest character that mere human
Science has ever been able to so much
as bint, ana wmeii wouiu seem to
breathe an unsuspected and mighty
meaning into that speech of Job, when
he demanded, 'Canst thou bind tbe
sweet Influences of Pleiades?' "
Sin' Downward Course.
Prof. Smyth tells us that he finds,
astronomically, that the Pyramid was
built In 2170 li. C. Ue tells us that at
that particular timo the Dragon star,
the personification of evil, was lu line
with Its Descending Passage. The In
ference Is plain when once we per
ceive that the Pyramid pictures the
history of the world. Tho Downward
Passage represents the downward
course of sin and death of the human
race under "tho Prince of tho power of
the nlr," under "the god of this world."
History In general corroborates this.
The lower part of the passage ceases
to be downward, and becomes hori
roiital to the large chamber In which
It ends. Thnt chamber, wide and
high, but with troubled floor, may
well bo understood to represent the
time In which we are living the time
In which the downwardness of our
race has been measurably arrested,
nnd when mankind are comparatively
freed from the superstition which
bowed down our forefathers: but the
uneven floor Indicates "a time of trou
ble." Into which we believe we have
already entered. Theological, social,
political and financial troubles are In
the pathway of humanity, nnd this
means such nnarchy as has been threat
ening la China and other Eastern lands,
and which the Scriptures clearly de
clare will overwhelm Christendom.
Brighter and Better Things.
Centuries ago un Arabian Caliph. Al
Mamouu. believing the Pyramid to
contain great wealth, spent a fortune
in digging Into its Interior, not know
ing of Its Ku trance Passage, which
at that time may have been covered
with the casing stones, lie finally
reached the Downward Passageway,
but behold, the strenuous labors of his
workmen dislodged a stone lu the roof
of the Downward Passage, and show
ed an Upward Passage, left concealed
when building the Pyramid.
Al Mamouii's men found that Up
ward Passage blocked with a largo
graulte block which they wore unable
to dislodge: and It Is still there. Eager
for treasure, they worked their way
around It and found above It au
Ascending Passage of about the same
height as lu:' Descending Passage,
which ends In what is known as the
Grand Gallery. !t mis the same steep
grade as the Ascending Passage. It
Is narrow at the base, but wider high
er up. ami seven times as lony ns mo
Hie inierlor of tbe walls of these
passages is or creamy marine or lime
stone, and the Grand Gallery has sev
en overlapping: on each of Its side
walls, and both the lower and end
walls overhung. At Its upper end Is a
low Passage Into what Is known ns
the Ante Chamber. Through another
low Pii'isn-e we enter what Is known
ns the King's Chamber. At tho Junc
ture or the low Ascending Passage
with the Grand Gallery. Is a level
Passage which lends off to what Is
known ns 'he Queen's Chamber, di
rectly under the King's Chnmler.
Thus the low Ascending Passage,
the low Horizontal Passage, nnd the
floor or the Grand Gallery, all come
together at one iolnt. nnd thero wo
find what Is known as the Well, an
Irregular Passage which leads down
ward itnil connects with the Down
ward Passage toward Its lower end.
This Well rod the Passage lending to
the Queen's Chamber apparently were
secreted by the builders; but some
thing like an explosion tore away tho
top stones eoverlng the Well and the
lower portion of the Grand Gallery,
and thus disclosed the Well and also
the Passage to the Queen's Chamber.
So far for our description.
Spiritual Lesson Here Taught.
A key suggested In ISilS by a young
Scotchman, Robert Menzles, and which
beiv.m to open the Pyramid's religious
lessons, was the Well. He wrote to
Prof. Smyth. "Prom tho north begin
ning of the Grand Gallery. In upward
progression, begin the years of our
Savior's life, expressed at the rate of a
year for an luch. Three nud thirty
Inch-years therefore bring us right
over agulnst the mouth of the Well."
In other words, that Well and the ap
pearance of an explosion, picture our
Lord's death and resurrection. In har
mony with this the IHjwnwnrd Pas
sage represents the courso of sin and
death, leading to destruction. The low
Ascending Passage, blocked by tho
Granite "riug." represents the Law
Covenant given to the Jews, but which
none of them, however, were able to
keep perfectly, because "there Is none
righteous, no, not one" none capable
of fulfilling the demands of God's Law
because of hereditary weaknesses.
From the time of our Savior the Gos
pel Dispensation began, symbolically
represented by the Grand Gallery. It
Is a Dispensation of grace or favor;
nevertheless. Its Passageway Is deep
and narrow, leading to the "Goal" at
tbe farther end. As the Grand Gal
lery has an end, so this Gospel Age
will have an end. It will accomplish
its purpose, which Is the gathering of
the "elect" of God. to be the Bride of
Christ and Ills Joint-heirs in His King
dom, which is to bless the world.
Another interesting feature Is that
the Ascending Passage with its Plug
represents exactly the length of the
Jewish Aire! And, similarly, the Grand
Gallery represents, an inch to a year,
the length of this Gospel Dispensation!
It Indicates that at a certain timo the
treat favor of becoming Joint-sacri-fleers
with the Redeemer, nnd thus be
coming Joint-heirs with Him In His
Heavenly Kingdom, will terminate.
Tho privilege of walking In the "nar
row way." In tho footsteps of Jesus, of
self-sacrllice for the Truth's sake, will
thus cud. "Now is the ncceptablo
tltno"-now is the time when God Is
willing to accept these living sacrifices,
which He declares nre "holy nnd ac
ceptable to God" (Uomans ill. 1).
through the Imputation of Jesus' merit.
The King' Chamber Granite.
Hut while the Grand Gallery ns a
whole stands as a representative of
the entire Gospel Age. at Its top we
have Illustrated the steps necessary to
be taken by each und every one who
would constitute a member of the
Bride class, to become new creatures,
to become partakers of the divine na
ture, sacrificing all that appertains to
our human nature. The Ante-Chamber
represents the present life of God's con
secrated children. Its peculiar wain
scoting seems to symbolically say that
lessons must be learned by each one
who enters in other words, it sym
bolizes the School of Christ, in which
consecrated believers have lessons of
faith, experience, patience and forti
tude to prove their worthiness to pass
beyond into Heaven Itself, represented
by the King's Chamber.
Before entering this Ante-Chamber or
school, the pupil must stoop low. for
It Is entered by a low Passage. Imply
ing humility. And no sooner has ho
risen than he finds himself confronted
by a huge granite obstruction, known
as the Granite I-eaf. and he can make
no further progress except by bowing
low to pass under It. Granite seems to
be used In the Pyramid in much the
same way that Gold was used In Is
rael's Tabernacle to symbolize things
Divine. This Granite obstruction
threatens to block our way. and re
quires us to bow low before It.. Sym

the Holy Spirit to the divine nature,

The passage leading from the Ante

Just as low as the Granite obstruction,
which seems to say that as the one
represents a condition of death of tho
