Extract from letter dated Yokohama, Japan, September 30th, 1905.

In ten days I sail for India, after a stay of over seven months in this beautiful land. It seems almost like starting again for the Orient, for my home here has been so happy and replete with spiritual work and experiences. One of them was a case of child birth, just a month ago today, and in many ways I was reminded of our joint endeavors for dear Mrs. But I had an advantage in this co-operation on the part of all, even the doctor. But it started in as a hard case, and the doctor was getting his instruments' ready to take the child when I arrived, for there had been no progress, only rigidity. The change was so marked and the progress so perfect, in spite of wrong presentation, (the child righted itself) first child, advanced age, (35 years), etc., that the doctor was filled with wonder, and it was newsed everywhere; the event taking place in a hotel and the lady well known, so the bulletins of her welfare were passing from friend to friend hourly. The relief was jubilant, and the painlessness of it all dazed all who did not understand the Truth and its power. It was a mighty testimony.

BOOK REVIEWS.

BY J. H. c.
Self KNOWLEDGE (ATM A-JNANA). By Swami Abhedanda.

After a silence of about two years this gifted Hindu writer and scholar bas published a new book which will be welcome to students of Truth, whether it be found in the Eastern religions, in modern thought or e'sewhere. In the first chapter the writer deals with that much disputed question, "What is matter?" and tells us that spirit and matter are two modes of the one Eternal Substance. In the succeeding chapters he treats specifically with the “Knowledge of the Self," " Search after the Self," Realization of the Self," " Immortality and the Self," and in a most practical manner, yet with great power and clearness of style, is each subject dealt with. Those who are interested in the study of the Vedic Scriptures will find this book touches a new field. The Hindus, with the power of concentration which has been gained through numberless generations of training, have arrived at a deep understanding of man's inner nature, and, while we may not agree with all of the Hindu teaching and doctrines, we find much of truth and of helpfulness in their writings, and welcome a book from such an authority and scholar as Swami Abedananda Published by the Vedanta Society, New York. Cloth, price $1.00. PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF DIVINE PRINCIPLE IN OUR EVERY DAY

The Spirit has impressed me to write you a short chapter of personal experience in Truth-seeking, thinking it might give you added encouragement and inspiration in the excellent work you are doing.

When a boy, in the way the world counts time and age, spiritual consciousness of the Father was given me, as well as the realization of my former existence in Absolute Being. The clergymen of the churches in my village could not "make out my thought, but encouraged me in what they termed, "Good works." Their theology was quite a source of trouble to me za those days, and a great desire was implanted in me to go to the schools where they had pursued their studies, that I might the better understand their attitude. After completing my college course I entered a theological seminary, not with any intention of entering the ministry, only for the above pnrpose. The faculty of the seminary knew of my desire and purpose, and encourage me to pursue my study and thought with them. I was a sort a unique student-"one without precedent," as a member of faculty expressed it. The humble, but consistent, attitude wa maintained and respected, and, withal, the experience was ook of great advantage to me, and I trust of helpfulness to those with whom I came in contact. Almost from the first I was in deman to supply the near-by churches, and in time there were more requests for the young student with "the newer and deepel

spiritual truths," than I could well supply. During this time I knew not of their being so many brethren who were at-one-ment with me in thought, but this knowledge was to come to me later. Naturally I was urged to enter the work of the church's ministry, and with all my peculiar views and new mode of thinking was so set apart by the most liberal men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing in the church.

Tho test was to come now. After three years of teaching and healing successfully, the seeming reaction came of persecution, and I was forced from the pulpit and church. I now understand why this was so.

It was my own fault, or, rather, lack of understanding. At times I was fearful of the non-reception of Truth. This, and probably this alone, was the reason why commotion was produced in the minds, and therefore the outward manifestation, of others.

I wentimmediately to Rochester, rested after the so-called trying experience, and after becoming refreshed in spiritual thought and meditation, began my work of teaching and healing outside of the churches. I met Dr. J. G. Murray, whom you know, and we were united in the work until I had to obey the leading of the Spirit. In the silence, all of the while of my being in Rochester, the spirit saith, "You are called to demonstrate the Truth in the churches," which seemed so preposterous after my being forced out of the church. Many of the students of Truth did not believe in organization, and believed organization was a'bindrance to Truth. And while in the silence the Spirit would say, “You are called to demonstrate the Truth in the churches. You are to demonstrate over organization. There are no hindrances in organization. Speak the Word." It seemed very strange to my mortal consciousness that this should come to me after every church tie had been severed, being in the world-at-large in the freedom of my work. How it was to be brought about I knew not, and not having any individual desire to go, I was assured if in truth this was the Higher leading it would be so demonstrated.

In about two months I received a letter from a friend, who is president of one of our Western New York colleges, stating his leading of the Holy Spirit, and the desire of his Presbytery. It was an invitation to become a member of the Presbytery, and to accept a pastorate in the Presbyterian church. After due consideration of the great work I was destined to do, should I so accept, and with a realization of the great opportunity for teaching and demonstrating the Truth, I became a member of Lyons Presbytery; the Presbytery having full knowledge of my position in relation to the Truth, and my non-subjection to any do ipe or teaching of the church that did not accord with Truth princible. There was nothing sacrificed. The result is an added eaven in one of the most conservative of churches, and the pportunity of fulfilling the word of the Spirit in teaching the Cruth, and in demonstrating over all so-called hindrances. We ire happily engaged in our work in a most beautiful section of a leautiful country, overlooking Lake Ontario, and from this point ve are sending to the world brotherhood our highest thought in he power of Spirit.

We kindly invite Mrs. Fillmore and yourself to visit us hould either or both of you come to the Empire state. Also I hould like to have my people to have the opportunity of earing you teach the Truth from the pulpit and class-room of he church. The door of the church I serve is open to you with hearty welcome awaiting you. — Don G. HUSTED.
