A certain little magailne which prides
Itxrlf upon Its scientific wisdom devotes
a fage or two each month to sneers and
enrcasm concerning "New Thought,"
nnd all the other
jihases of the mod
ern wholesome re
ligion replacing the
creeds of the past.
In one issue thla
three portraits or
jiicturea of three
types of men. One,
the broad-h e e d c d
man. born with ab
cannot heln helnar a
another, a nRrrow-headcd failure, who
cannot acquire wealth, because that por
tion of his brain Is lucking, and a de
generate type, who cannot comprehend
morality, from the same causes.
Then the editor breaks forth as follows:
"A New Thought" advocate asserts as
follows: 'I can do what other men can
do, and I concedo that any man can do
what I can do. To prove this, will the
(advocate pleaso write and send to us a
play or poem equal to those attributed
to Shakespeare, Byron or Shelley? Or
will he compose a symphony like Wag
ner's, Mosart'a or Beethoven's?
"Will he construct a steamship like the
Great Eastern, or will he produce a paint
ing like those of the great masters
Raphael and Rembrandt? Will he achieve
the results of Michael Angelo? Will he or
nny other "New Thought' advocate per
fform some feat which phrenology proves
I his organization Incapable of performing?
Then we will acknowledge that chickens
can swim as well as ducks, '
"This idea Is opposed by phrenology,
which insists that every man acts In ac
cordance with his organization and en
vironment; and that b reason of or
ganization and environment of different
men, what Is possible for one, man to do
. Is; utterly Impossible for another man,
endowed with a different' organisation,
Now, to the sensible student of "New
Thought" all this discussion seems very
pointless and foolish. The one fact which
Is ; necessary for human beings to learn
is. thla: Each normal man can attain to
tlikj very highest pinnacle of success in
his own line of development by concen
tration, assertion and application.
The first step la to lettm for what you
fir best fitted. If you are five feet or
lets in stature It Is folly to attempt to
jiloy the role of a viking; if you are a
woman of colossal size, with a Roman
nose, do not attempt to shine as Juliet
or Marguerite. If your whole makeup la
artistic, do not expect to become a
power In the financial world; and if you
possess markedly practical qualities and
abilities try to realise that you belong
In that plane and not In the arts.
Just here Is where the great influence

said he could do me no good so I told my

would try it. By the time I had taken

usually the greatest handicap to a child
Parents decide what their children shal
follow, and undertake to diive them i.
that direction, as a harder drives -hir
sheep. Instead of studying the taste (
temperament of each child Individually,
and calling In the aid of phrenology,
astrology and palmistry to aid in the
delineation of character.
There la no questioning the fact that
all people bom In a certain period of
time possess some tastes and qualities
of a similar nature. For Instance. I have
never known a peraon born under the
sign of Gemini who did not possess a
marked Inclination to do two things at
one time to stay In and to go out, to be
practical and artistic, to be sad and
merry, to travel and to remain at home.
I have never known a person born lri
Scorpio who did not possess latent talent
of some order In literature, muslo or as
a nurse or a physician.
Action and achievement are necessary
to them, or they become Invalids and
In the dull routine of mercantile or
domestic life they are almost universally
failures. The parents of a Scorpio child
should find what bent its tastes and
talents take and then cultivate them.
But to people who have not been aided
by parents or science the "New Thought"
is a guldeboard pointing to the hilltops
of success. '
It docs not claim to maks a giant of
a pigmy, an orator of a man born dumb
It does not claim to make a Pattl of the
child born with no musical taste, or a
ballet dancer of the cripple.
What it does claim to do is this: To
make the pigmy happy In teaching him
how to be the moat useful and distinctive
of his class th dumb man how to attain
to the best expression of what he feels.
through other avenues than speech the
unmusical child and the cripple how to

The old-fashioned mother did the best

about how the mocrn mother ni-glects

thing on earth is to go to any oountry
