The main purpose of this little book is to show, from observed fact and necessary reason, the existence and reality of spiritual intelligence apart from matter. On the same basis the author examines the functions and scope of spirit, and the relations of the present life to the life beyond, having ascertained the reality of spirit to a future life before indulging in speculations about them. The speculations are curious, many of them ingenious and interesting, and certainly sufficiently bold and advanced to satisfy our "advanced thinkers" in this line of occult science. The book is in the line of Psychic Studies," although more thoroughly speculative, while that rests on a basis of ascertained facts, in whole - in part.

Arthur Forbes, after leaving college, where he has studied for the Congregational ministry, finds that he cannot preach the doctrines of that sect, but longs to preach liberal Christianity. He is engaged to Rachel Armstrong, daughter of a typical New England deacon. She breaks the engagement, and Arthur goes out West, where he takes charge of a church started by Judge Hunt, a fine character. Arthur's sister is the typical unmarried woman of New England, with "advanced" views. An Episcopal clergyman, a Methodist minister, and advocates of various shades of creed are drawn with fairness and decided talent. The "love" portions of the tale end satisfactorily, but it is in the "theology" that the interest centres. There is a scene in the graveyard at Florence where Theodore Parker is buried in which an excellent description is given of the belief and methods of this earnest reformer,

The writer of this story is a business man of long experience, and he was moved to its preparation by the fact that that experience had shown him that there is much in currently received business principles-even among those whom we call good men-that is wrong, and so wrong as to be not only injurious to him upon whom, but by whom committed. He places the hero of his story-Bennie Stout-in positions to exemplify this fact, and to show how a boy of good principle and a strong will can not only resist temptation himself, but can even exert an influence over his elders,

Wright, Julia McNair. The heir of Athole; a
story. Phil., Presb. Bd. of Pub., [1887.] c.
320 p. 1 il. S. cl., $1.15.

The book has a purpose-to call attention to the problem of the tramp class. Philip's young life that runs alongside of Barry's has its own interest. But Barry the tramp is more the hero than Philip the heir of Athole. The author has given close study to the class she paints so graphically. Barry is not an antic play of fancy. He represents the intense heathenism that marches side by side with the enlightenment of the nineteenth century. Barry arrives at manhood so thoroughly let alone by both Church and State that his soul possesses as little as is possible besides its original innate ideas, while his native disposition is harmless. Here he comes in contact with the Bible and with religion, and we see the development of his Soul-life.

Wright, Julia McNair. In black and gold: a

cl., $1.50.

The vices of drinking and gaming are likened by the author to the "twin dragons of Virgil; although intemperance is named in the story as one of the motors for gambling, the latter vice is given prominence because Julia McNair Wright deems that there has been too little said on the subject. A tenement of Boston is the scene of the story, which paints vividly some distressing events in the life of a noted gamester, and the brave endeavors of a child to combat her troubles successfully; also her vain efforts to reform her father, and her attempt to provide her brother with a musical education. Doro's odd ways, quaint sayings, and original mode of gaining a livelihood add much to the book.

A story about the quiet folk in cottages and farm-

boy, to whom is confided the secret hiding-place of the
sacred vessels of the church. His father is shot down by
the soldiers and their cottage burnt, and the care of the
family falls upon Steadfast. He knows also that his father
has money hidden in the cave with the silver chalices, and
removing his little sisters and brother to a hut near the
cave, with the few cows and sheep left them, he not only
nobly fulfils his trust in guarding the treasures, but
succeeds in providing for the children. The story ends
with Steadfast's marriage and the restoration of Charles II.

Zoia, Émile. Christine, the model; or, studies of love. Phil., T. B. Peterson & Bros., [1886.] c. tr. 17-458 p. sq. S. cl., $1.25; pap., 75 c. Artist life in Paris is the theme and the characters are mainly Bohemian painters, journalists, and literary men, together with the women who have joined their fortunes to theirs. Claude Lantier, son of Gervaise and Lantier of "L'Assommoir" and brother of " Nana," is the hero. He and Christine pervade the book. Claude is a wild enthusiast with an ill-balanced mind. He has decided ability as an artist, but his monomania for founding a new realistic school of painting and producing a masterwork prevents him from attaining success, Biting poverty is finally his lot, and Christine devotedly shares his misery, tortured by jealousy of the women on his canvas, for whom he forsakes her and to whom he gives his passionate adoration. Under the name of Sandoz, Zola personally figures largely in the novel, and the statements made with reference to his life, literary aims, and methods of labor are said to be autobiographical.

He by intrigue and Bribery discovers the secrets of the government regarding property it proposes buying to lay out the new boulevards, and in a short time amasses a colossal fortune through his speculations. His gorgeous house, his extravagant dinners, the vices and follies of his son Maxime and his wife Renée, and the final degeneration and destruction of the whole family are described in Zola's most graphic style.
