THE LATE PRENTICE MULFORD.
TheRnhstanee of His Teaching KspUlnerf
by One Who Understood It.
Nkw York, Juno 10. Ifthelatol'ron
tlco Mulford hwl singled out from all his
writings ono sontonco that ho wished to
taiid m a motnorinl of him nnd hii
work, it would havo been tills, "Thoughts
aro things." There is in us and nlxjut
us, Inlcrpenotratlvo of all the universe,
a subtlo thought other, vislhlo in veiled
glimpses now and thon to thoso whom;
clairvoyant oyes havo Iwon partially
opouod to inner realities. On this ether
ride tho vibrant waves which carry
thought, Inumltmtlon, vision, to all man
kind. If a mini thinks, ho forms and
throws out Ixiyond him on tho thought
other actual images, and things that
Hunt out Iwyond bim aro caught with
othor thought wavos and Images, and
react to bless or curso tho man himself,
Moreover, just as wo throw out upon
tho vibrant othor wo likowiso draw to
ourselves. Liko attracts like. If wo
send out evil, revengeful or covetous
thoughts to our neighbor, wo send out
winged monsters to work harm not only
to our neighbor, but to draw around
them a pack of fiends liko themselves,
who sKrt in our atmosphere and event
ually bring destruction down on our
heads. Reaction must otjual action, and
thought, good or bad, must rebound upon
tho thinker. Thus If a man becomo
discouraged, hoofess or broken down
In his thought, exactly that kind of vi
brations will float to him on tho thought
ether, being drawn thither. Tho mora
he thus indulges in a discouraged,
grumbling, hopeless mood, tho harder it
will become for him to rlso out of this
Indeed, there aro somo whoso experi
ence it lias been to hoo tho veritable
imago and picture of their thoughts flash
before them at times, when in a pecul
iarly quiet mental condition. In Pron
tico Mul ford's viow the space all around
and above us was peopled with images,
spirits and things. There is nowhoro In
nature u vast expanso unpeopled or where
nothing Is save air, and in tho hollow
sphere abovo us, invisible to tho mnterial
eye, dramas aro enacted, battles fought
out and mighty thought movements bo
gun that are afterward wrought out
here among us in tho world of matter,
but above all and before all we are still
to remember that "thoughts are things."
This, ho held, is tho meaning of tho New
Testament Buying, "As a man thlnketh,
so is ho." In tho inner man, in tho spirit
of each, is mado and built that which
afterward expresses itself in tho body.
Our bodies, their beauty or deformity,
their sickness or health, nre only tho
outward expression of an Inward beauty
or deformity, sickness or health. We
aro'what wo think. Think health, joy,
prosperity, good will to all mankind, and
in time there is bound to come into our
lives tho samo health, joy, prosperity
and good will from those around us.
If you persist in keeping tho image of
success on your mind, uever giving up,
but thinking buoyant, hopeful, happy
thoughts, you will attract to yourself
success in business or other enterprises.
Associate with successful, fortunate peo
plo; get into their atmosphere. Wear
tho best clothes you can ulFord, no mat
ter how poor; spend money judiciously
instead of hoarding it up. It will como
back to you with additions. So, putting
out tho atmosphere of success, you shall
draw success to you.
I havo thus emphasized and dwelt on
this phase oi Mulford's doctrine bocuuso
it was what ho himself constantly dwelt
on and madu prominent. But he taught
much besides. He was really the found
er of a system of philosophy, profound
and fur reaching. Ho seemed to absorb
from ancient philosophy, from Chris
tianity, Buddhism and Spiritualism
what suited him and to reject tho rest.
flint is what overybody ought to do in
tho world of thought and belief; tako
what suits his case and take nothing
because ho is told to; but Prenticu Mul
ford incorporated this independence of
thought iu his life as few have courage
Ho lielioved thoroughly in reincarna
tion, that world old doctrine that is now
penetrating tho thought of our time so
deeply. In his heart 1 am sure ho be
lieved he could trace himself back to at
least ono former existence. Ho believed,
too, most thoroughly in evolution, not
for u few centuries, but for ages. In its
spiritual ami physical ascent mankind
has just now reached only tho lower
rounds of the ladder. Centuries will
pass. Men will grow finer, gentler,
kindlier und mora beautiful as they
assimilate mora und mora of the divine
spirit Their food will become less
gross, thoy will become less coarse and
elfish, their bodies will gjrow delicuto
and beautiful us the divine spirit more
and more duvelope. Disease, sin and
suffering will fall away from us as a
worn out garment, and wo shnll stand
forth at last splendid, shining spirits, in
the full ilowor and gjory of tho divinity
that Is the end and aim of our repented
incarnations here. We are incarnated
over and again that we may obtain all
As tho race developed its spiritual nat
ure Mulford thought there would be In
it less and less of the heavy material
parts that decay. Conbeqeutly, Ulutni
natcd by tho divine spirit, free from dis
ease or wasting cares, which wo would
in the course of ages learn to eliminate
from our lives, this philosopher reasoned
that wo might stay here in this life as
long as wo chose, and that the transition
to tho next stage would no more bo the
violent, terrible wrench that death now
is, but merely a gentle, mysterious
change, if indeed there would be any
change at all with the highly spiritual
ized bodies tho coining thought will
build for us.

Prom Sofa to Hammock.
Dear parlor sofa, fare thee wU,
A long and fond mlleu.
Tbo hammock days have como and so
Wo say farewell to you.
We ay farewell to you and sigh
To think of all the beaux
We had, and coal was awful high
Woue venturod to propose
Ah, no, they'd simply talk and smile
And sigh and hesitate.
And pa kept scolding all the while
Because gas bills wcro great.
Dut none got down to business and
Drought matter to a close,
Although mamma and 1 have planned,
None of them has proposed.
And p be oftened threatened to
Apply to them his boot,
And sought to bang within their view
This motto; "Pop or scoot!"
But after all tho rnal they burned-
We say It with regret
Another summer hu returned
Ami tlniln us single vet.
Now that we greet the gentle spring
And chilly winds are gone,
We'll ouco mora in the hammock swing
At even on the lawn.
Where somo one may, ere summer's o'er,
Propose and make us glad.
And if they don't we're very sure.
Poor pa will just go mad.

the entire distance from city hall to his

just now the heat Is very great. There are
street cars running right to his door. A

"It must make you sick to walk eight

"Thnt's Just why I walk," replied Van

why I walk. It makes me so tired I can't
