JPS again!

Another of J.P. Struthers' jocular notes to Charles Jerdan. It reads: "It WILL come next year. J.P.S., Prophet."
This is from the Morning watch volume for 1913. And it did come next year. The volume for 1914 would, however, be the last. As the war that began in 1914 was to destroy the Edwardian world depicted in Struthers' magazine, so Struthers himself died suddenly after preaching in 1915. The last edition of the Morning Watch was a memorial number, edited by Struthers' widow.
Struthers would, of course, have denied all serious claim to prophetic powers.
