In Dresden, our canny author takes
a cab having a tariff clock, an Ingen
ious thing which marks the time to a
second and the price per hour, so that
no dispute can arise with the cabman
concerning time or fee. She recom
mends the German pensions, "good
enough, as good as one needs nt a dol
lar a day, food and all." American
friends, having given her a list of de
sirable pensions in Germany, also three
in Home, Naples and Florence, she
strikes a loyal note "the sight that
made my heart beat, a raan-o'-war
flying the American flag." And again
in the concluding paragraph: "Our
hearts throb with Joyful pride in
greeting the Goddess of Liberty who
welcomes us home."
The proof-reading is atrocious and
the paper is unworthy the author and
her letters. The cuts should have been
half-tones and printed on enameled
paper. Instead they are coarse news
paper cuts, and defeat the author's
Ideal and purpose.
T1k Mct&pfcyiical Movcmeaf
Transcendentalism remained a relax
ation, a profession, a resort of the ultra-cultured
of 'Boston. Emerson, Mar
garet Fuller, Hawthorne, were teachers
and creators. They were elevated by
the distinction of their own characters.
Transcendentalism added nothing to
their power and took nothing from It.
The modern transcendentalism Is of the
people and for the people and the
prophets are commoner clay.
The "New Thought" Is a renascence
of transcendentalism. But the differ
ence is that it Is being taught by
teachers who otherwise would remain
In the obscurity of their birth and ca
pacities. A certain number of leaders or dis
coverers of the New Metaphysics are
at the present time regarded as proph
ets by the cult. Mrs. Helen Wllmans,
Mr. Henry Wood, "Mr. W. A. Rodmun,
Mr. Dresser' and Mr. Ralph Waldo
Trlneare names well enough known by
4he cult as preachers of optimism and
the doctrine that any good thing ac
complishes itself if the person whom
the good thng will benefit only be
lieves In its accomplishment. People
outside of the cult know these authors
as "teachers of a harmless and very
cheerful philosophy. Like the Chris
tian scientists their essays are asser
tions. Mr. Paul Tyner, evidently an
apostle, says In a review of the move
ment In the current Review of Re
views: "Not merely the cure of dis
ease, but also the entire interdepend
ence of mental and physical states and
the relations of cultivated thought and
will to harmonious growth In charac
ter and usefulness, are Involved in the
better understanding of the new meta
physics. Its promises of peace, har
mony, light, healing has called wide
spread attention to the claims of the
practical metaphysician." ,The 'prac
tical availlbillty of the power of the
will to bring about right relations be
tween physics and metaphysics, Mr.
Tyner asserts. Is the kernel of the
teaching. The forces of nature are in
ferior and obedient to the power of the
will owned by a student of the gospel.
To a man who stands outside of le
ligion the claims made by converts
sound like cabling. In revivals when
sincere sinners shout about their hap
piness and the miracles which their
acceptance oCreligion has wrought the
really devout as well as the reckless
outsiders know better. The mental
scientists make large claims and many
who aYe sick in soul as well as in body
read their books and are comforted
thereby but the day of the scoffer is at
