The studies have that personal interest which is the charm of fiction and biography. Chiefly the book is a study of conscience of that dignity and divinity in the soul of man which is the highest evidence of its origin and of its immortality, and which, by the grace and energy of God, lifts him out of gulfs of slime as a star is lifted out of the sea. The author gives one new conception of the moral splendor of spiritual heroism, victory and redemption. It is inspiring and refreshing to turn from the stolid and mechanical conceptions of the past and witness the struggle upward of a soul. — Dr. Gray, in The Interior. TWENTY-SIXTH EDITION A Man's Value to Society S TUDIES in Self-Culture and Character 16mo, gilt top, $1.25 Right to the point and as good as gold…. The author knows how to reason as well as to preach, and clothe his thoughts in beautiful forms of expression. The volume is a storehouse of enrichments for the practical and spiritual life, and makes its points with splendor of illustration and cogent reasoning.— The Independent. TWENTY-SECOND EDITION The Investment of Influence A STUDY of Social Sympathy and Service. 12mo, cloth, gilt top, $1.25 With wonderful facility and power the author shows how great and good men help others by their influence on the atmosphere in which they move …. Every chapter is full of inspiration, and no one can read the volume without being stimulated to seek a nobler manhood.— Presbyterian Messenger. Right Living as a Fine Art A study of the Ideal Character, based upon Channing's Symphony of Life. 12mo, decorated boards, net, 35 cents. T O live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never—in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common—this is my symphony. — WILLIAM HENRY CHANNING . A delightful and beautiful interpretation of this grand symphony, lending it a significance which the unaided reader could scarcely find in it, lest he were a rare genius like the author, who manifests a wonderful familiarity with history, biography and literature, which he always uses to such good advantage. Every sentence is a crystal, and the whole book is a coronet, rich and rare. There can be very little good in the heart that will not be made better by the perusal of such a book.— Reformed Church Messenger.
