GERMANY AND ISLAM.

TO THE EDITOR. Si,-.—ln view of an understanding alleged to have been arrived at between Germain- and the Turkish Government recently, the following, taken from ' Isis Unveiled,' written by H. P. Blavatsky, j may be of interest : I •'•ln an old book of phophecies, published in the fifteenth century (an edition of 1453), we read the following, among ot!v>r astrological predictions : hi twice two hundred years the Bear Tho Crescent, will assail; But if the Cock ami Bull unite The Bear will not prevail. in twice ten years againLet Islam know and f«ir— The Cross shall stand, the Crescent wane, Dissolve and disappear. •• In vast twee two hundred years from the. date of that prophecy we ha<l the Crimean War, during which the alliance of the Gallic Cock and English Bull interfered with the political designs of tho Russian Bear. In 1856 the war was ouded. .i.ni Turkey for the Cresronti closelv escaped destruction. In the present 'vear (1875) the most unexpected events' of a. political character have just taken place, and twice ten years have elapsed since peace was proclaimed. Kvervtliinp: seems to bid fair for a fulfilment of" the old prophecy. The, future will tell whether the Moslem Crescent. which .seems, indeed, to bo waning, will irrevocably ' wane, dissolve, and disappear ' as tho outcome of the present troubles." It is a far cry from 1876 to 1914. but I prophets have thoir own peculiar methods of giving out information. "Of course they have," Rays tho sceptic: "they give, it out in such a way that whatever happens they can .say : ' I told you so.'" The truth is that thoso who know .are not allowed to give out information except at. the right time, in the right place, to the right 'man. The Cock, the Bull, and the Bear are now united, and will prow victorious. The Crescent, with its German coadjutors, will "dissolve and disappear," in the sense that both will be disastrously j defeated. 1 am, etc., I Anglo-Fkenchman. I December 3. i ;-___«_____;__. i
