THE DAILY RECORD-UNION.
How to Educate the Feeunos. By Charles Bray.
12mo. S. R. Wells fc Co., New York.
This volume is edited with notes and illus
trations from the third London edition by
Nelson Sizer, of New York. It treats of
the mental constitution, the self-protecting
feelings, the self-regarding feelings, the social
affections, the moral esthetic and religious
feeling?, and those which give concentration,
power or permanence to the others, and con
cludes with a consideration of tbe connection
of mmd with organization, the subjective
and the objective, and a treatise on the intel
lectual faeultics. The treati-:e is based on
phrenologic science. Bray's reputation as an
analyst of the human faculties has had
much prominence. He is a countryman and
a follower of George and Andrew Combe.
The text is clear, plain and adapted to
popular reading. The work is put
forth by its author — as throughout it is man
ifest — in the direction of intellectual culture
and the advancement of the human race in
all knowledge from which character ami l.ap
pine-s taring. As the author states it, his
•ndeavor is "to associate the rules of prac
tical education with the principles of wiiat
we believe to be the truest philosophy of the
human mind that has yet obtained." Ke ad
mits phrenology to l.c an imperfect science, but
believes it* delineations of the powers of the

baeis of a system ot education. These are
the key-note.-, to tlie w irk, and to those who
agree with him the work will prove of inter

incline to accept his premises as sufficiently
broa.l to warrant the founding of so positively
stated a theory and doctrine as those which

These are the latest additions to Morley's
series, already noticed in these columns.
What Professor Mark Patterson says by way
of excuse for his book is illustrative largely of
the reason for the series. "My excuse," he
says, " for attempting to write of Milton
after Mr. Mas-son is that his life is in six vol
umes qptavo, with a total of some four to five
thousand pages. The present outline is writ
ten for a different class of readers — those,
namely, who cannot afford to know more of
Milton th;tn cau be told in some 250 pages."
The evident purpose of the series is to present
"short books" to the general public, with a
view both to stirring and satisfying an inter
est in literature and its great topics in the
minds of those who have to run as they read.
There is the objection that this condensing
PTOCQBO is in danger of being overdone, and,
indeed, it has been in some instances dam
aging in results, but the Morley series does
not appear to be open to objection of this na
ture, as it has thus far been an aid to the
study of literature and au inducement to en
ter upon it.
The Chemistry or Common Lipb. By the late
James K. W. Johnston. New edition ; by Arthur
Herbert Church. 1 vol.; Bvo. New York : D.
Appletun & Co.
This work first appeared some twenty-five
years ago, when an acquaintance with the
advancing science of the day was the almost
exclusive possession of a select class. It had
much to do with the popularization of science,
and brought the science of chemistry closer to
the understanding of the masses, simplifying
many of it.- intricacies, and smoothing many
of its thorny ways. Professor Johnston's
book very so.m became a popular one, because
of his simple and familiar methods of present
ing facts and of reasoning. Professor Church
has brought the work down to the present
time, revised and enlarged it, and made it
even more acceptable than before. It i- now
profusly illustrated. It should be in every
family, treating as it does of every article of
food in use, giving the constituents of each,
the best methods of use, the nutritive quali
' ties of different kinds of food, and •treat
in-,' of the physiology of the body, of hygiene,
of sanitation, etc.

Prom Olirer Ditson & Co. (Boston) we
have " The American Anthem Book," by A.
N. Johnson, J. H. Tenney and A. J. Abbey.
The first thin? a choir leader would notice in
turning over the leaves of this candidate for
toe "ministry of song in the sanctuary" is,
its freshness and newness. Everything is
written especially for the book, and, with the
exception of four or five arrangements of
pood music, there does not seem to be any
thing at all that has been published hereto
fore. Now it is quite a formidable task to
pr.w.ire a hundred or more new anthems,
which are all not to exceed a certain degree
of difficulty, which are to have a >rreat va
riety, and to he all spirited an.l ple:i.-ing. The

and have given a collection which Is of excel
"Sebastian Strome " is the title of Julian
Hawthorne's latest novel. It has been read
with a keen appreciation of its strength and
vigor ; yet, like most of this writer's stories,
it hardly fullills expectation. He opens his
navels with »uch power ai raise hopes seldom
gratitimi. He brings to hia work a mass of
rich material which sp grows beneath his
touch that he seems to love the power to come
to a conclusion with the interest fully main
tained and all the characters under full con
trol. "Sebastian Stroiue" is a deeply inter
esting novel. Its latter half in its viviilness
becomes almost repulsive, and the methods
cfcosen to purify the soul do not engage the
sympathies. The novel is from the press of
I). Appleton & Co., New York, and is for
sale by W. A. & C. S. Houßhton.
From the Leonard Scott Publishing Com

SOMETHING ABOUT THE PEOPLE CF
What Our Correspondent Thinks of
Some of the Folks Behind
San Francisco, March 3, 1860.
I have been thinking what I mi^ht
write that would especially interest
" Sybil " awl her friendß, and yesterday a
little vision of myself, when I was a small
country girl, flashed 1 across me and gave
me my cue. I saw myself standing in di
lapidated shoes and a calico apron eating a
cracker and listening in awe to the con
versation going on between two other girls.
I wundcr if those other girU remember
it as well as I do. We were in the
alley-way at the side of the Orleans
Hotel in Placerville, which hotel was
then in my eyes equal in gorgeous
ness to the Crystal Palace, and the con
versation was about a company of theat
rical folk who had come to town and put
up at the Orleans. Now I had never seen
an actor in all my little life, bo the subject
was an immense one to me, and I listened
with all my ears to the various items of
how the head actress was called a " star ;"
of how the biggest actor looked ; of how
there was a child belonging to the com
pany who traveled about with them every
where ; and then I was stricken dumb at
being told that when they were killed on
the stage they used " red flannel for blood.'
When I came to San Francisco I had been
to a theater just once, and then I saw
James Stark in the play of "Napoleon,"
and the curdling awe of that communica
tion about red flannel still thrilled me.
The thought that comes to me is perhaps
that "Sybil" maybe interested to know of
TWO OE TIIHEE THEATRICAL FOLK
I have known — not folk of world-wida
greatness or fame, perhaps, but people who
have done faithful, honest work in their
profession, who have been successful with
the public, some of them, or unsuccessful
as it may have happened. My rirat ac
quaintance came by an accident. She was
a young lady with pretty, dark eyes, be
longing to the well-known Chapman fam
ily, a friend of a friend of mine and passing
our house they happened in. She seemed
to me at a great distance from me, a different
person altogether, but very nice and very
charming. She sat down to the piano and
sang a little ballad with no particular voice,
but with a good deal of style, and by and
by the two went away. The next morning
my sisters and cousins and aunts were
blank at the thought of having had an ac
tress in the parlor. Indeed, lam not sure
but the parlor next day received a thor
ough dusting and sweeping, but, in spite of
all, the young girl came again and yet
again, and by aud by the prejudice against
her died away. No. 2 was an actor — a
real live alligator I could not have
regarded with more of reverence. He also
called with a lady friend. He must have
seen the admiration trembling in my eyes,
and been amused thereat, and I should not
wonder if it had delighted him thus to be
regarded as a little god. At any rate I
went to the theater with him by and by,
feeling a weight of guilt upon my soul, and
I Laugh now to think how he must have
laughed to see me tremble at the thought
of going anywhere with an actor. To do
my best to rescue him from perdition I
took him to praj er-meeting afterward, and
seated him between a hard-shell deacon
and a horrified member of my own family,
and was surprised to learn that for some
yean he had gone to Sabbath-school in
that very church. He went away pretty
soon, and wrote me a letter, which I held
for some time at arm's length, like a burn
ing brand. It had amused him probably
to write it to the foolish little girl that I
was, and I deserved to be laughed at Well ;
but, oh ! heavens, how my illusion was
dispelled. His writing was cramped and
poor, and one word was spelled with two
l's where there should have been but one.
My ideal was shattered at once, and to the
best of my remembrance the letter was
OXE DAY IN THK CAR
I met a gentleman with Miss Carro True,
the Oakland favorite. She was a plain
young girl who carried flowers in her hand,
and I had met her a number of times be
fore. She waa then an attendant at the
Denman School, and one of the teachers
had remarked to me that there was a girl
of that name whose papers in the examina
tion had attracted her notice. She said
they were true all the way through — just
as much pains shown in the last page as in
the fair first one. Carro is just as con
scientious now when she dances an Irish
jig or comes out as a Dutch women as she
was then about her examination papers.
The gentleman that day with her in the
car asked me to go and see a lady living
near me who was dying of cancer in the
breast, and who would be glad to have
me visit her. Said he: "Her name
is known to the public as Belle Devine ;
she was an actress, but she is a
woman." I found her in one of these
city tenements, in • a back room, up
two flights of stairs, with her daughter
and her little boy, and thereafter saw her
frequently. Nearly always she lay, dressed,
upon her bed, always cheerful, and always
glad to see me as I ran in. She had flowers
always about her, for it was flower season,
and they stood in a porcelain pitcher on a
little stand where she could put her hand
to them. She drew aside her dress once
and showed me her shrunken breast, the
fearful cancer feeding upon it and eating
her life away. Many and many a tale she
told me of her experiences, her hopes, her
failures, her triumphs, her dresses, her
songs, her studies, and the dangers that
lie thick in the path of young actresses.
By the aid of the Methodist Church South,
a struggling little congregation on Minna
street, she was going East to a doctor, who
could cure her without the knife. When
she went away she looked about for some
thing to give me, but her room was bare
enough and she must have had little enough
to spare. Her eye lit upon a bunch of
honey suckle perfuming the little, old
pitcher, and so, with an apology and 'a kiss
of farewell, she gave me the flower and the
dish. She sent me a letter from Boston,
the most resigned, patient letter, to tell
me the doctor had refused her case and she
was - .-.■ .\ ■■-"■?::■ ~H;
MAKING READY TO DfE.
I answered it, but she died before it
reached her h. ad. My acquaintance with
that dying actress dropped the glamour
and t*e scales from my eyeF, and made me
see the woman in all other actresses. I
had seen an actress cheerful in poverty, I
had seen her scant of friends, I had seen
her weighed with griefs, I had even kissed
her lips and taken farewell of her just this
side of death — henceforth to me, by the
death of Belle Dcviue, all actresses should '
have the benefit of their womanhood. It
was some months after this when an invita
tion was sent me to call upon Annie Pix
ley, then not long married. 1 spent an
evening with her, and found her a charm
ing little person with dark eyes and short,
curling hair, very chatty and pleasant, and
moreover, she wore a bonny blue-flannel
jacket, and looked quite the housewife.
She had just come down from Oregon,
where she had been traveling about with
her sister Mary, since married to a wealthy
Orpgonian. .She said she loved going
about the country and playing here
and there far better than oity en
gagements, and she liked housekeep
ing, too ; she liked to cook and be a^out
among the dishes. Now she has grown in
stature and in reputation, and the Pacific
coast is proud to claim her since the East
his risen before her with applause. It was
a modest beginning she made, but the has
I grown an earnest woman, whose heart is in
j Her work. She studies the stage closely.
and when among the audience looks to
learn new business and catch points where
ever they appear. Her sister Mary, for
merly reckoned the better actress, has lost
all interest in her old profession, and wben
she goes to the theater it is for amusement,
just as you or 1 would go. A neighbor of
mine, a mother in the church, as generous
hearted, open-handed, sweet-souled woman
as ever lived, had a short stage experience,
but it is one upon which she looks back
with pleasure. She was married at 15
and had one child, when she indulged her
self in elocutionary training under an
actress who had retired from the stage,
and who was an intimate friend of James
Stark. The young pupil evinced such
talent that Mr. Stark was invited to hear
her one day, and was so pleased that he
read with her Pygmalion to Galatea.
Judge of her surprise to be called shortly
after to a position as support to
TUB LEAPING LADY
Of his company, a position which she re
fused, believing herself incapable, but was
finally persuaded to accept. She rose to
leading lady to her own utter astonish
ment, and played Pauline to his Claude
Melnotte and like characters. Her name
was Isabel Hamliu ; perhaps some one may
remember her. " And did you ever play
at Placerville ? " I asked eagerly, thinking
that she might have been the Josephiue,
possibly, that first night when I went to
the (theater. "Ah, yes, indeed," she an
swe-ed. "I always remember Placerville,
because I was there mistaken for Mrs.
Stark, her name having been billed and
sent on. My trunks at the hotel were
even sent at first to Mr. Stark's room
under the misapprehension." She received
S7O per week, but she sayß it went as fast
as it came. At the expiration of two
years and a half she was under engagement
to appear in San Francisco with Charles
Wheatleigh, and her career was thus as
sured, but the nurse on whom she depend
ed was taken sick, and, as she had now
two little girls, she threw up her engage
ment and stayed at home. Once lost, the
place was never regained, and she often*
looks back with regret to the day when
she left the stage. In the end, she says,
she could have done more, much more, for
her children ; she could have done justice
to herself and made them proud to be
daughters cf their mother. She would not
lose her grip again if her hands were once
more on the rope. One day a chirping,
cricket-like little bofly came hopping into
my parlor. It was
Just from the South, via Philadelphia. By
turns she has been wife, mother, actress,
authoress, artist, sculptress, and now she
chirps away as cheerily as she ever did in
the zenith of her fame. With a world of
faith in herself and belief in broad hu
manity, and with ever a charitable- word
for sister woman and brother man, shejlives
a life of peacefulness and retirement scarce
a block away from me. I once knew one
of the funny women of the stage — the old
maid, Jishwoman, outlandish, ridiculously
dressed character that convulses one with
laughter whenever she appears. Twice
married she had never a child, although it
was the one desire of her life, and for days
and days she would have with her the lit
tle girl of a friend ; she would make her
pretty dresses, and delight to fondle and
caress her. And yet to hear that hard
twang of heis echo through the Cali
fornia Theater one never would have
thought of little children. That
reminds of a graceful and bright little girl
that died, the child of Kate Benin and
John Wilson. I remember the day she
gave away her breath — what a blot seemed
over the morning, what a hush seemed to
lie outside around the house. Often as I
have seen John Wilson and Kate Denin in
the characters that crowd the staje, I can
only think of them since then as father and
mother grieving for the little pirlthat died.
'•She looked like a little May Queen,"
said the mother to me, speaking of the
beauty of death and the flowere touching
its check, and the small grave in Lone
Mountain, month in and month out, is
kept like a flower-laden throne for that lit
tle dead Queen of the May. Love never
lets the vines wither nor the blossoms
fade, and tender tears fall often upon Ma
mie's headstone. Place us how you will,
assuredly the same joys" and the same
griefs visit each, and we are sister and
brother every one. Kate Heath.

FOR THE CURE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYSFEPSIA AND SICK HEADACHE.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
P\IN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres-
sure ; sometimes the pain is in the left
side ; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain :
is felt under the shoulder blade, and
it frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The stom-
ach is affected with loss of appetite
and sickness ; the bowels in general
are costive, sometimes alternative with
lax ; the head is troubled with pain,
accompanied with a dull, heavy sen-
sation in the back part. There is gen-
erally a considerable loss of memory,
accompanied with a painful sensation
of having left undone something which
ought to have been done. A slight,
dry cough is sometimes an attendant.
The patient complains of weariness,
and debility ; he is easily startled, his
feet are cold or burning, and he com-
plains of a prickly sensation of the
skin ; his spirits are low ; and although
he is satisfied that exercise would be
beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely
summon up fortitude enough to try it
In fact, he distrusts every remedy
Several of the above symptoms attend
