Mre. Jennesß-Miller, several months
ago lectured here, and demonstrated the
principles of her new dress reform. She
had many admirers, and today we see
on the streets many garments fashioned
after her models. The ladies themselves
are better able to judge whether this is
an improvement or a retrograde move
ment. The writer is not well enough
initiated iv the mystery of Venus o!
Milo gowns or the latest Worth impor
tations to discuss thorn through the me
dium of the press. This article is sim
ply written to call attention to a new
book on this subject which seems to be
the most complete and analytical treatiee
published up to the present time. The
title is Beauty of Form and Grace of
Vesture, by Frances Mary Steele and
Elizabeth Livingston Steele Adams.
The writers endeavor to win, if possi
ble, pilgrims into the right way of offer
ing idoals. the successful imitation of
which necessarily includes health. They
mention gome of the evilß of conven
tional dress, the bad conditions it in
dnees, the diseases it enta'!s, the abnor
mal growths it causes, the horrors of sur
gery and ihspepsia, which have already
been ably anil persistently presented
by scientific medical practitioners and
benevolent reformers. Many illustra
tions troui different sources have been
interted, with the general purpose of
educating the eye to the rhythm of
benutiiul lines and forms. In a com
pany of cultivated people the question
waß asked: "For what do the majority
of women care?" After an animated
discussion it was agreed that admiration
and consequent love were the objects
dearest to a woman's heart; that the de
sire ivr display of natural gifta or
acquired posseseiona was only to gain
admiration; that pride of intellect was
indulged in the hope to wield influence,
a power inseparable from the admira
tion oi fellow beings ; that disinterested
souls who long to do good by self-sacri
ficing devotion are immediately de
pendent upon the welcome aspect of a
•ranfnn* personality, winning at once
admiration, trust and love. Therefore
woman's ambition ia to be beautiful, for
utut, secures inevitably both admiration
and love, This ia true, becauee beauty,
ideal hesuty, presupposes the charm of
an attractive presence, fine proportion,
perieet pnysical condition, intelligence
ami moral excellence. God meant
women co make the world beautiful, aB
mucti no floweis and birds and butter
flies. And no woman anywhere but
desires to look ' well in the
eyes of others, no one but
would be glad to look better in tbe eyes
of those flic loves, and best in the eyes
of one wtio loves her. Tiius this desire
of beauty, beiug natural and universal,
must have been put in ail wisdom into
the constitution of a woman's mind. If
young girls, content with youthfulneas,
forget its brevity and foolishly ignore
the means of preserving its beauty, none
are irresponaive to the thought of en
hancing that charm. To enjoy ail these
perfections and hold this Ireshneeß of
yonth and appear in this manner is fully
explained iv tnis interesting volume.
Boine portion* of tbo book are particu
larly go^d—the pages devoted to Hin
drances to the Pursuit of Beauty are full
of good advice; while that devoted to
the True Standard of Beauty contains
sentences which inspire you with the
nobleness of beautiful creatures. Fair
Endowments and Muscular Symmetry
and Fine Condition contain references
to many of our prominent theatrical
etara, Bernhardt, Terry, Modjeska, Nor
dica, Mary Anderson and Mrs. Potter,
who are tbe queens of grace. They also
refer to classic sculpture of tbe human
form, Us symmetrical proportions, the
gradation oi form and brilliant com
plexion and matchless coloring
of tbe ideal human figure in
perfect condition and health.
After properly and scientifically con
sidering the figure of the sublet tbe
latter hall of the book ia devoted to the
grace of design and art principles ap
plied to costume, followed by a thor
ough treatiee on beauty of material,
beauty of color and the accessories.
And by the way, there are some sug
gestions and designs that show conclus
ively that many of the designers of the
fashion plates of our most prominent
fasnion magazines are utterly ignorant
of anatomy and art. And being so,
why should their dictum be heeded
upon a Bubject vital to physical beauty?
Like pretentions would be resented by
the public from any other craftsmen.
Tne closing chapters are devojted to
From Youth to Age and Models, with
an additional chapter on a Hope for the
Future. Glowing tributes are paid to
Psyche and Daphne, also Juno, Miner
va, Melpjmene and Venus, aud it is
plainly shown that if the contents of
the book are properly followed the
autumn of life will be one long, bright,
exhilirating season, with a golden In
dian summer; and when it iB time to
loosen hold on life one may linger in
some quiet corner, wearing the lumin
ous tints of forest leaves in sheltered
nooks which Bhow a mosaic of with
drawn hues covered with a tender
bloom. There is a poetry,
a mystery, about these that speak of ex
periences vieled by the past. Of a life
properly spent, properly clothed, prop
erly lived. Such colors are found on
the wrong s ; de of tapestries and bro
cades. And as the shades surrounding
the evening of a well-spent life toll,
there is a certain peace of well balanced
nature, a calm dignify—doubtless the
outcome of life's chastening. There is
a ministry of beauty, grace aud har
mony, as well as a Bervica of endeavor,
which may biesß one's friends when
disinterested activity is no longer pos
sible. Finally, the close of an old lady's
life, as she sits draped in soft white ma
terial, is like a poem, with tbe snows of
winter on her head, but wearing tbe
promise of an eternal spring. And sj
we may hope, even if the process is slow,
to see all such 1 yes ended, for amid all
our frivolities there is arising in Amer
ica a type of womanhood new in history,
undescribed in fiction, from which there
ahali proceed a majesty more pure
and tender than anything which poets
ever eutig. Tnroagh tears and Bmilee,

ceded, of duties never yet imposed, will
this heroic sisterhood be reared; ac,
when classic architecture bad reached
perfection, there rose the gothic and
made the Greek seem cold. From the
light of starry worlds to the pearly se
crets of the deep, from blushing east to
glowing west, the visirn will be glad
dened by plenteous, unstinted, un
speakable beauty. The whole universe
is its temple, and every fair form, fresh
color and sweet sound in earth, air or
sea make up the blessed ministration.
Mrs. Besant, the high priestess of
theosophy, bas given us two lectures or
discourses on her favorite eubject. She
seems to thoroughly understand electric
and magnetic forces, astral bodice and
etherial matter. She has probably
made co ue new converts, and theoeoph
ical literature should now be the rage.
In glancing over some new books the
other day I chanced to pick up a new
work on occult adventure entitled Mir
rikb, or a Woman from Mars, by Fran
cis Worcester Doughty, a noted theo
sophical author and writer on occult
subjects. In it I find an excellent de
scription of the Bcenery surrounding the
Buddhist temple, Nagkon Wat, used for
religious ceremonies and celebrations.
It is near Angkor in a dense forest, and
is approached by steps that seem inter
minable. The architecture of the tem
ple is of pagoda style, and it is 250 feet
high. It is a strange- old temple, the
very names of whose builders is lost in
tbe mistß of ages. It is the dwelling
place of the Cambodian priests, and
in it they worship Buddha, and of
all the Buddhistic followers they
are the most faithful and pereevering.
They are practical and deep spiritual
thinkers, whose minds are capable of
the deepest metaphysical reflections,
minds stored with an accumulation of
spiritual and occult knowledge almost
beyond comprehension. We talk of our
civilization and progress. When our
forefathers were savages these people
were enjoying tha height of a glorious
civilization. When the naked Britons
drove the hosts of Csesar into the sea,
Angkor was old, and this massive pile
stands a monument today of a religion
which abounds in a profound sense of
the littleness of man and the greatness
of the God who constructed the mighty
temple of the universe. The Bceneß are
well taken in this book, the description
accurate, and although the plot and oc
currences are impossible and overdrawn,
still they furnish a vehicle on which to
frame and explain reincarnation, occult
ism, spiritualism and a general outline
of theosophy and its teachings. There
is a particularly fine description of tbe
journey to tbe wilda of Thibet, in the
land of the Grand Llama which contains
the most mysterious of cities, Lhasa.
Here are the residences of the Llamas,
the priests, whose prayers are supposed
to be the most powerful and repre
sent the '. true Nirvana, and attend
to the wants of the highest priests
of their order at the famous Bhrine, the
lamasery of Paam-dagong. They teach
that there is a living God, who, through
His spirit messengere, ruleß the exis
tence of His creations. The latter part
of the book iB devoted to an impossible
journey or transmigration of an astral
body to tbe planet Mars and what it
sees there, and much space is devoted
to the reincarnation theory. Altogether
it is an improbable and impossible
story, full of imagination, but contain
ing many explanatory thoughts pertain
ing to the Swedenborgian theory and
the teachings of Reynaud and Kardec
ou reincarnation.
In connection with the above subject
I would like to mention a work by
James Freeman Clarke, entitled, Ten
Great Religions, an E«say in Compara
tive Theology. Dr. Clarke, who is the
pastor of the Church oi the Disciples of
Boston, gives an outline of the hißtory
of each of the religions that have ex
erted the moet influence in space and
time. The work is one of consummate
merit and surpassing interest. Full of
patient and thorough study, in
which judicial impartiality, the
catholic and loving spirit, is
manifested in the whole work.
Much space is given to the Chinese,
Brahmaniem; Buddhism, or the Pro
testantism of the east; Zoroaster and
the Zevul Avesta; Mahommed and
Islam.
His Becond part to Ten Great Reli
gions or the comparisons of all religions
is far superior to any other volume in
the English language in giving a fair
and just comparison of heathen reli
gions with Ctiristianity. Animism,
Polytheism, Pantheism, the eon! and its
transmigration in all religions, idea of a
future Btate in all religions aud the
future religions of mankind are all
faithfully portrayed and discussed in a
learned aud understanding manner.
Eacterie Buddhism by A. P. Sinnett,
president of the Simla Eclectic Theo
sophieal society, ia now in its sixth edi
tion. In tbe east the inner spiritual
meaning of Buddism has never been put
into hooks, but ie confined to those who
have the religious exaltation that en
ables them to receive it. It is this
menning which Mr. Sinnett bas
bten the first to give to
the western world, and in this
he has rendered an important
service to speculation as well as religious
thought. His chapters on Esoteric
Tsacnere, The Constitution of Man,
Kama Loca, Buddha, Nirvana and Tbe
Universe are full of powerful thought
and convincing argument.
The Occult World, also by A. P. Sin
nett, we will eimply mention as a com
panion to Esoteric Buddhism and which
embraces matter of peculiar interest to
American readers, especially to spirit
ualists.
Some tint* ago when A. J. Monnteney
Jepheon, one of Mr. Stanley's officers,
waß in the United States be was asked
to write some etories for children. He
replied that he hardly knew what to
write about, for American children know
so much more than English children,
making it so much harder to write for
them. Besides, American children al
ways want to know tbe reason for every
thing told them and very often tbe nar
rator is unable to explain it to them.
Toe outcome of rhis request, after care
ful consideration, resulted in bis
new book: Stories Told in
an African Forest, by grown up
children of Africa. The stories are of
the life of a little band of men who were
closed in for many months in a great
dark forest in the heart of Africa; of
their life and work there; how they
cleared tbe laud and planted Indian
corn and beanß; of their experience
with the spiteful little pigmies witb
their poisoned arrows; of the troops of
elephants; how they built their fort and
mended their clothing and boots, and
listened to tbe strange allegorical legends
told them by their faithful negroes,
simple hearted, good-natured, boister
ous people; who told of the Arab cara
vans and the wonderlul countries and
people they had seen in their wander
ings in Africa. About the death of
noble General Gordon, and tbe taking
of tbe great town of Khartoum ; of Emm
Pasha and the country of Hatlastiva; of
tbe pigmies or dwarfs, who'are generally
believed to represent the original people
who inhabited the forest which extends
over the whole ot Equatorial Africa.
A very pretty story is told by a little
Zanzibar boy about Mahomet and his
visit to God in the seventh heaven;
abont his horse, El Borak, and the re
ceiving of the commandments.
The story of tbe lion and Mr. Hunger
reminds us of Uncle Remus and bis
Brer Rabbit stories. The story of Kin
tu is a very pathetic one, and contains a
powerful moral directed toward the
respect due old age from the young.
The story of Daoud the Fisherman, and
The Story of Kilindi, and of their idea
of the origin of the white men, ends one
of tbe most interesting books ever writ
ten for tbe young generation of the
present decade.
In magazines Harper's seems to be a
very interesting January numher, con
taining The Old Way to Dixie, by Julian
Ralph, a description of a trip down tbe
Mississippi from St. Louis to New Or
leans, fully illustrated; Proletarian
Paris, by Theodore Childs, illustrated
by P. Renouard, gives descriptions of
Bijou and XiSP Pere La Gloire, A Wed
ding Party in the Bois de Boulogne, and
several other spectacles of Parisian life.
The first part of Horace Chase, a novel,
iB contributed by Constance Fennimore
Woolson, and a brisk little
titled The Unexpected Gueßts, is fur
nished by William Dean Howells.
Richard Harding Davis writes a 6tory of
The Romance in the Life of Hefty
burke, and Elizabeth Stuart Phelps
Ward a stor-y of The Rejected Manu
script. In travels, Poultney Bigelow
gives Why We Left Russia, il
lustrated by Frederic Remington.
Annie Fields is tbe author of a
tribute to Tennyson under the same
title. Editor's Study, by Charles Dud
ley Warner, contains several good
things, and the Editor's Drawer con
tains a bunch of editorials by Thomas
Nelson Page, E. A. Opper, etc., alto
gether making it a very complete and
interesting number.
I feel it a pleasure as well as duty to
call the reader's attention to the Janu
ary number of The New Californlan,
published in this city and ably edited
by Louise A. Off, assisted by Marie L.
Carhait. It is a monthly journal, de
voted to philosophy, ethica and psy
chology. Its motives are to manifest
the soul of science by the methods of
science; to hasten a practical realiza
tion of universal brotherhood, without
distinction £f sex, race or creed; to
make men ramiliar with the intrinsic
wealth of oriental as well as occidental
philosophy and science, and to contrib
ute towards tbe investigation of the
occult laws of nature and the psychic
forces in man. This particular number
is rich in good things. Annie E. Che
ney discourses on Tbe Nirvana of Ma
hayana and Hinayana Buddhism,
lis" Principles and How It Is Under
stood and Misunderstood. Pascal Ger
main contributes Hercule Mazenod's
Opinions, a sketch from life in French
Canada. Louise A. Off has a poetical
tribute to Annie Besant of two verses,
which is quite touching. Astral Light
is explained in steps towards its scien
tific basis, by Alpha. Tbe subject
seems to be well analyzed, and readers
will do well to read it carefully and
thoughtfully. Notes from Ladakb, by
Count Wachtmeister, ie a description of
the country of Ladakb, in Central Asia.
He describes the average Tibetan, tbe
Kashmiri's and Baltis, the native wom
en, their mode of living and the work
they perform, their dress and love of
jewelry, the influence exerted by the
Mohammedans over them. He gives a
fine picture of tbe city of Leh, of its
bazaars and the trade of ita great shops,
of different nationalities and costumes.
He touches on Buddhism, when it was
introduced into Ladakh, of its reform
and tbe present mode of worship, of the
great Dalai Lama in Lhassa (an in
carnation of Manjusri) who might
be called tbe pope of Llamaism.
It is a very inter* ting chapter.
A poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, en
titled Invisible Potencies, A Scientific
Analysis of the Units oj Water, by Dr.
W. H. Masser; The Land of Dreams, by
H. T. Patterson, and an essay on Con
centration by Elizabeth A. Kingsbury,
F. T. 8.. concludes a very interesting
and scientific number of a monthly mag
azine whose motto is, "The whole world
was created that the whole world should
study it."
