as we please; but do not let us overload, to the sinking point, a spiritual philosophy whose message humanity is waiting to hear. The external face of society, like the human countenance, is but the exact expression of the inner forces. Better the ruddy glow upon the cheeks when it comes from within, than a coating of cosmetics from without.

The New Thought believes in the potency of God and Law, and that an aggressive pessimism, emphasizing the evil of human conditions, is unscientific and harmful, even when well meant. The seat of man's inharmony and unhappiness lies deeper. Even were external conditions perfect, a divine restlessness would possess him until he found God to be within and without All in all. The allegory of the Garden of Eden pictures a material Utopia; but, to enter it now, men would have to take a spiritual anesthetic and be carried backward. The sweat, toil, and unrest of the present evolutionary plane are infinitely better and higher. It contains a supernal element, of which an Eden is destitute and which can never go back to latency. Like leaven, it will work from the center outward until all is leavened.

THE ABUNDANT LIFE.

BY SARAH J. FARMER.

""I am come that ye might have life, and that ye might have it more abundantly."

Down through the ages these words have rung like a joys bell. We have heard them. We have repeated them again and again. To-day they sound in our ears and bring a new revelation. We call it the New Thought, but the only thought in the universe is God --- "the same yesterday, to-day, and forever."

What is this newness about which we talk like children?
