Tho Signs in tho Heavens
Last Saturday night Btrango and
beautiful sighs woro Boon in tho
heavens Many gazed and won-
dered what it indicatod Tho wise
men of tho East only saw ono star
It rested over the spot whero lay
one in his infancy who wob to bring
groat joy hopo and happinoss to
the sinners
That tho signs Saturday night
had some happy significance no one
questioned Who could read Ihe
hand writing on the wall One in-
terpretation has been given which
has been accepted in lieu of any-
thing better These signs repre-
sented two parrelled lines some
three inches wide and somo six or
eight feet long at tho top end of
these lines were spires similar to
to those of largo cities The inter-
pretation is Tho paralleled lines
represented the locks were to be
buiit in Cypress river riear Albany
Flats becaused it wob in that vi-
cinity the signs hovered The spires
sparkling in beauty represented
that the building of the locks would
cause the building of a great city
farther up the river whose beauty
would be the admiration of the
world Coming the flight after the
reviewing board had made known
their unholy and unsupportedcon
clusions declining to recommend
the improvement was vtiry signifi-
cant There were many who did
believe in the star of thoEast and
would not follow there are many
to day who dont believe in the
parallel lines indicated or foretold
of the great joy happiness and
wealth caused by the locks at Alba
ny Flats despite the ruling of the
engineering department
