1 A new book just published by G, P.
Putnam's Sons of New York is entitled
,Taaka by Twilight, by Abbott Kinney,
author of Tbe Conquest of Death and
many shorter articles whicb have been
published from time to time in pam
phlet form or in the leading magazines
of tbe literary world. Tbe first part of
the book is devoted to education, not as
it ia generally considered, aa "a literary
preparation given young people by
teachers at home or in onr acboola and
universities," and which, by tbe way, ia
■n interpretation narrow and incom
plete to the lost degree, but "an educa-
'tion in its complete aenae, a preparation
ior living that begina at birth." The
portion of education "obtained from
books and in the schools is tbe outward
flourish, the trimming and the orna
mentation, aa compared to the aolid
requirements necessary for a encceaaiul
life." Mr. Kinney holds tbat the abso
lute esaentiala for a useful and happy
existence are three:
Firal—Animal strength ; to be a good
animal; to have health, vitality and
physical power. Without a doe amount
of thia, no other requirements, no
knowledge or information, can be util
ized. Toe physique mast be there to
use knowledge.
The second quality essential to a use
ful life ia the power of observation and
adaptation. We muat be able to tee
things when we ccc tbem; when we look
•t a thing we muat obeerve it, recognize
its qualities and remember it.
Tlie third quality, without which life
must be a failure, ia character. By
character is meant that combination of
qualities which enables ua to use tbe
knowledge derived from obaervation,
through our physique, so aa to achieve
results. The human animal is gregari
ous. All buman Uvea are, therefore, af
fected by tbe Uvea of others. Each of
these eaaentiala are treated upon at
engtb, and much attention ia given to
he aubject of physique, which ia the
first tiling to be considered in a child
titer it ia born, and which ia a thing ab
lolutely necessary to maintain in a good
condition throughout life. The portion
ievoted to boya enters into the develop
nent of their character, self-discipline,
rames, exercise?, athletic performances,
sating and drinking, horseback riding,
stc, etc.
The subject of Manual Labor ia con
lidered, and tbe fact that "practice
makes perfect" ia fully demonstrated.
Under Observation are some facta not
only for children and teachers, bnt
which will prove valuable to the ma
jority of parents.
On the Education of Girle the author
devotee eeveral chapters, and includes
advice to matrons aa well aa maids. The
pages devoted to marriage and mother
hood are equally aa interesting aa those
devoted to childhood, school life and
courtship. It aeeme almost incredible,
in this enlightened age, we are forced
to realize that the drift of onr eociety,
and of onr whole industrial system, "is
away from family life, but a reading of
the facta recorded in this division of thia
book will substantiate this assertion.
Tbe subject, therefore, for careful con
sideration ia, "How to atem thia dark.
Strong and deep current toward family
—and race—death;" and thia aubjoct is
one to place in tbe education of the girl.
Borne very plain talk ia introduced
under thia head dpon the physical edu
cation of women, the effects of the very
lenient divorce lawa of thia country,
and the increasing desire of parents to
rear email families.
A chapter devoted to Thoughts in -
eludes attides on Socialism, Labor and
Idleneea, Firmneea, Climate, Sanitary
Conditions, Courage and Self Restraint.
The last article, bat by no means the
least, la Diet; aa used in thia chapter ia
nnderetood lo mean all things taken by
man to provide energy, and to replace,
retard or accelerate waste, and tbe man
ner of taking these. In its complete
ness it comprises what we eat in foods,
what we diitik in fluids, what we breathe
in the air and what we use in narcotics,
stimalanta, or drugs. Thia chapter is
particularly com plelo and contains many
words of caution which it would ho well
for youug and old folks alike to heed.
It should be read by Ansshroa at least,
'on account of its author being so well
known in this vicinity.
Roberta Brothers of Boston have just
repubiinhed a book revised and enlaced
whote first edition was issued in J&SU,
and wnii-ti tias been in demand ever
since. The title would bear emphasiz
ing: The Eiaieit Way in Housekeep
ing and CouKiug, adapted to domestic
nee or study in classes, by Helen Camp
bell. That room or toleration for an
other "cook-book" can exist ia the pub
lic mind will he denied .at once with ult
the vigor to he expected from a people
Overrun with cook-bocks,, and only
auxioua to relegate the majority of
them to their proper place as
trunk linings and kindling material.
The minority, admirable in place
and execution, and elaborate enough to
tnrve all republican purposes, are surely
sufficient far all the needs that have
been or may be. With Mrs. Cornelius
and Miss Parloa, Marion Ilarland aud
Mrs. Whitney, and innumerable otfier
trustworthy authorities, for all every
day pnrpoeea, and Mrs. Henderson ior
•uch festivity as we may at timea deDtre
to make, another word is not only su
perfluous but absurd; in fact, an out
rage on common sense, not for an in
stant to be justified. This is probably
the attitude aud language of many read
ers who will Btart thia review, and prob
ably many of them will not even follow
this article as far aa thia statement. But
if the readers should have tbe excep
tional experience of the author in build
ing up several cooking schools in a
new locality, demanding the most
thorough and minute system to assure
their succeee and permanence, the ne
cessity for making a new one would be
at ones understood.
This little work whicb ia very com
plete, consists oi a foundation for work
gradually eliminated from a crowd of
authorities on thia aubject, on which
baa risen a structure designed to serve
two needs.
For the young housekeeper, beginning
wHh.iiliiß ur uu knowledge, but eager
to do and know tbe right thing, not
alone for kitchen but for the borne as a
whole, the liat of topics touched upon
in Part I. hecmee eaeential. Tbat
much of the knowledge compressed
there ahould have been gained at home,
ia at once admitted; but, unfortunately,
few homes give it; and the aim baa
been to cover ibe ground conolaely yet
clearly and attractively. Aa to Part 11,
it ia not tho whole art of cooking,
Out merely the lice of recelpta
most needed in the average
family, north or south. Each receipt
has been tested personally by the writer,
often many timea, and each one ia given
so minutely that failure is well-nigh
imposaible. if the directions are intelli
gently followed. A few distinctively
southern dishes are included, but tbe
ground covered haa drawn from all
sonrcea; the series of excellent and
alnhnrate manuals by well-known
authors having contributed here and
there, but the majority of rules being,
aa before aaid, the result of years of per
eonal experiment, or drawn from old
family receipt books.
To facilitate the work of the teacher,
however, a scheme of lessons ia given at
the end, covering all that can well be
taught in the ordinary school year; each
leeson is given with page references to
the receipts employed, while a Bhorter
and morn compact course iB outlined for
the use of classes for ladies. A list of
topics ie also given for school use,
it having been found to add
greatly to tbe intereat of the
course to write each week the atory of
some ingredient in the leeson for the
day, while a eet of questions, to be used
at periodical intervale, fixes details, and
insures a certain knowledge of what
progiose haa been made. The course
covers the chemistry and physiology of
food, aa.well as an outline of household
science in general, and may serve aa a
text-book wherever euch study is intro
duced. Tbat training is imperatively
demanded for rich and poor alike, is
now unquestioned; but tbe mere taking
a counts of cooking-lessons alone does
not meet the need in full. This volume
aime to fill a place hitherto unoccupied;
and in precisely the line of work indi
cated there has boen found the only
practical method in a year's successful
organization of schools at various points.
Whether uaed at home with grow
ing girle, in cooking cluba, in
schools, or in private classes,
this system and tbe autboritiea
referred to will certainly stimulate in
tereat, and it will open up a new field
of work to many who have doubted if
tbe food question bad any intereat be
yond the day's need, and who have
failed to see that nothing miniateriug to
the beat life and thought of this won
derful human body could ever by any
cbance be rightfully called "common or
unclean. We are but on the threshold
of this new science. The author's only
hope ie to make the way a little plainer,
and ahe has done so to quite an extent.
Tbe principal divisions noticed are Tbo
House, Ventilation, Drainage and Water
Supply, Washing Day and Cleaning in
General, Food and Its Laws, Relatione
of Food to Health, The Chemistry of
Animal Food, Tbe Cbemlatry of Vegita
ble Food, Condiments and Beverages,
Soupa, etc., etc. It ia Indeed a very
complete volume on these subjects.
E. P. Dutton and company of New
York City have just given the reading
public a book which will receive a hearty
welcome, Phillips Brooke Year Book
containing selections from the writings
of the Kt. Iter. Phillips Brooks, D. D.
To tba friend* o( Bishop Brooks this
little-book wit! ebme aiuostranger. His
sermons have«hijk)d suit) living qualities
in the in l hut ihey are read and re-read
by many a fine who never came under
the influence of his marvellous person
ality, Their quality will be still further
tested, it seems, by"this separating pro
cess of presenting their thoughts in frag
ments. If in this way tbe thoughts do
not lose in euggestiveness, in vividness
end in strength, it will be a new testi
mony to tbe fact that the sermons are
among the immortal few'which are for
all time and not for one special aue
alone. The aim of tbe book ie to group
together cognate thoughts in sequence
of time, as well as to represent fairly
this man of large love for humanity and
of absolute surrender to his Master.
That ho found « place for such books
is sympathetically shown by the pre
face to a volume of selections published
some years since. In this preface he
says: "The most notable quality of
such books is their snggeativenpsß.
. . , It is not the fulness of their
.hands woich makes them welcome. It
is tbe dslicaoy and discrimination of tbe
finger which they lay upon some spring
in us and set come of our nature free.
Some euggeetive word out of this book
will fall upon a score of lives some
morning, and touch the key of each.
Each will bo better for it, but bow dif
ferently ! One will do better trading;
another will do better teaching; anoth
er's household life will be more pure
and lofty."
To those who have known Bishop
Brooks in the past, and looked to bim
for guidauoe iv the upward war, these
daily thoughts from him will surely
come with the added joy of memories
which are very precious. "In fie old
days it was strength to be with him ; in
those to come it will be strength to re
member him." ReferEnces to the works
of Bishop Brooks have been added, with
the thought that some might like to
tarn to the context. They are respect
ively ac follows: 27, I, II", 111, IV, Vj
to volumes one, two, three, four and
five of the sermons. Influence, to The
Influence of Jesus; Preaching to the
Yale Lecture on Preaching; Tolerance
to Tolerance. A page is devoted to each
day in the year. The most of the upper
part of the pages contain selections trom
Bishop Brooks's well-known works. The
lower portion are poetical selec
tions in unison with the prose
selections above. There are many texts
scattered through tbe book st the top of
the pages which are taken directly from
tbe Bible and the contents of the pages
on which these texts are found are sim
ply explanitory and enlargements on
them. The book is very complete in
every detail and full of sweet and tender
thoughts wbich, if properly taken, will
lead onward to a better life; will lighten
tbe burdens of many weary souls and
act as a "pillar of smoke by day and a
pillar of fire by night."

One of Mrs. Alcott'a Little Women—
The Boaton Evening Transcript, of re
cent date, eaye: Although Mra. Anna
Bronaon Alcott Pratt, who haa juat
died in Concord, waa never in any man
ner connected with public life and work
aa her famoua aieter and father were for
many yeara, there ia a aenae in which
ahe haa been very cloeely connected
with thousands who never saw ber, for
she wae the original of Meg, the sweet
eldest one of the four "little women"
who have been like aistera to all the
young girls of America since they first
appeared literature, and many women
who used to know Meg, Jo, Beth and
Amy almost aa well as their own siatere,
and who rejoiced in Men's brave indus

happy borne life, will feel a pang
ac at tbe loss of a famil
iar flesh-and-blood friend of school
girl days in learning tbat Meg, too, has
followed ber aistera into tbe silent land.
'Berth' died first, aa in the story, the j
the bright and talented 'Amy', and
only a few years ago Louisa Alcott, at
once tbe prototype and creator of Jo,
laid down ber buay pen. Tbe children
of Mrs. Pratt were not the girl and boy
who figure aa Daisy and Demi in the

An Authoritative Denial.
Professor Btoilprin, than whom there
could hardly be better authority, has de
nied through the columns of the Boston
Journal all foundation for the rumors
which have had some circulation that
the men of Lieutenant Peary's party ob
jected to Mrs. Peary sharing the expedi
Those who met Mrs. Peary after her
return from Greenland last year and
heard her talk of her experiences in the
arctio region in the simplest, most mod
est way, as if to enduro the' rigors and
privations of a polar winter were a tri
fling matter, gained a pretty clear esti
mate of her character and endurance.
Said a woman to her during a parlor
"But how could you endure the three
months of loneliness while your hus
band was away on his perilous sledge
journey and you waiting in that awful
desolation for the uncertain end?"
Mrs. Peary looked across at the lieu
tenant an instant before she answered
quietly and with a peculiar expression,
as if she had weighed the question be
"It was better than 18 months." Mrs.
Peary haa the courage of her wifely do
votion in a remarkable degree, and it
will not bo she of the band of intrepid
explorers who will faltor.
Cqual to tho Occasion.
A certain modest young woman, who
is employed as clerk and stenographer
by a New York attorney, proved herself
fully equal to an emergency which sud
denly presented itself on a day last
month. The lawyer was absent in
Brooklyn in attendance upon court there.
When the hour set for his return came
and passed, hi 3 clerk decided that he
must be unavoidably detained, and al
most at once reached a second decision
in consequence.
There was a motion in a case in which
her employer was an attorney pending
in the supreme court, and its hearing be
fore Judge Lawrence was set down for
tbat morning. Tho motion must bo ou
at tho moment, she thought, and seizing
the papers sho hurried over to the court
room, reaching it Just as the case was
called. Almost breathless, she stood up,
obtained a hearing and stated her case.
The judge listened, smiled and granted
tho motion in her favor, and the sensible
girl walked out of court, followed by a
craning of necks among the lawyers to
catch a glimpse of her.—New York

The Surplus Labor Problem.
Editors Herald: In your issue of
30th ult. "American" charged that in
my letter which appeared in the last
preceding issue of tbe Herald, I dealt
with "effects" instead of "causes," and
characterized it a "mistake."
The man juat pierced by a ball at the
hands of a would-be assassin experi
ences an effect which requires immedi
ate and tangible treatment, and as soon
aa the danger line in hia case haa been
reached justice demands attention to
the would-be assassin—tbe cause.
We are now confronted with a condi
tion and not a theory. There are many
thousands of unemployed men in the
country, winter ia now at hand, and
nothing ahort of immediate proviaion—
and that on a broad scale—for tiding
tbem over tbe winter can possibly pre
vent much want and suffering.
While municipal and county govern
ments have comparatively limited de
mands upon these men, yet they will be
called upon to care for many of them the
coming winter unless, perchance, they
are otherwise, provided for.
On the contrary the general govern
ment holds peculiar demands upon
these men, in common with all of ita
subjects, and, should this country at
any time be invaded by a foreign foe,
the general government would, should
the emergency require it, exercise im
mediate demand upon thorn for their
full service in defence of the common
intereat of the whole country.
Then why ahould not proviaion for the
care of the unemployed be national in
ita character, aud especially so when, ac
indicated in my letter above referred to,
and again in an editorial in tbe Herald
tbe 30tb ult. it may be made sellaus
taining ?
"America" alao alleged that the
"effect" of government employment ot
tbe aurpluß labor would result in largely
increased immigration.
The compensation for such labor
should not be sufficient to justify such
Furthermore, the privilege should be
confined to American citizens, and those
having declared intention to become
1 agree, however, with "America" in
that tbe "cause" if the conditions un
der consideration is, partially, due to
tbe laxity of our immigration laws.
And having formulated my views re
garding that phase of the question
through the courtesy ot the Herald, I
herewith submit tbem for tbe consider
ation of its readers, viz: Immigration
can be neither profitable nor desirable,
except in those whose physical, educa
tional and moral condition peculiarly fit
tbem for tbe preference of American in
stitutions; those who by instinct and
training readily and naturally assimilate
with us, for only such can acquire that
respect and admiration for our laws and
usages esseptial to loyal and patriotic
Tho great problem here presented is
as to what process of sifting shall be
adopted by which to encourage the im
migration of this class of foreigners and
the absolute exclusion of the objectiona
ble, there being of the latter several
divisions, among them tbe professional
anarchist, the dynamiter, those having
been convicted of crime, those afflicted
with contagions disease, the illiterate,
and such as poseesß no visible means of
It might be well to place the responsi
bility with thoße who profit most by
tbeir coming, viz., the transportation
Should congreeß pass a law defining
the prohibited classes and provide for
the imposition of a heavy fine for tbe
landing .of such on our shores, no doubt
tbe transportation companies, both
steamship and overland, would soon do
vise and adopt means requisite to the
As a further precautionary measure,
however, and to more fully insure proper
observance of such requirements, it
might be well to establish at every for
eign port a representative of our govern
ment to assist in the examination of ap
plicants for passage to the country.
Also to advise the government should
tbe transportation company except for
passage any whom said representative
might suspect ac belonging to tbe pro
hibited classes, to tbe end tbat it might
be more fully prepared to enforce tbe
law on their arrival here.
Much of the disrespect shown for our
constitution and laws result from a lack
of knowledge of the English langnßge,
and bonce ignorance of tbe true import
and intent of the constitution and laws.
Therefore, ac a corrective measure
against such evils in the future, I
would further suggest tbat congress pass
a law requiring foreigners, upon appli
cation for naturalization, to answer, in
addition to questions now generally put
to tbem, such others ac would insure a
reasonable knowledge of the constitu
tion on the part of the applicant, said
questions to be put in English and
answers required in the same language.
And in order to facilitate the prepara
tion for such requirement, the govern
ment should print the constitution of
the United States in pamphlet form,
and £.11 laws regarding naturalization in
the various languages of tbe world, and
the same supplemented in the English
Each and every foreigner, upon land
ing at our ports of entry, should be pre-
Bented with a copy of said pamphlet in
bis own respective language.
Then as strangers in a strange land,
and having the constitution of the
country and the requirements in order
to naturalization in their own language,
they would naturally familiarize them
selves therewith, and if desirous of
eventually becoming citizens, would, by
the time they were eligible, be able to
make intelligent and proper answers to
the questions asked upon their applica
tion for citizenship.
And being thus equipped, tbey would
have a better appreciation of and greater
respect for American institutions and
usagSß, and hence more thoroughly qual
ified for the proper exercise of the right
of franchise; would be more American,
and therefore better citizens.
Naturalization laws should also be
uniform throughout tho United States.

The Unemployed.
Editors Herald : The papers almost
daily announce the arrival of another
lot of unemployed men, who have no
doubt turned towards California, en
couraged by the reports that tbe Chi
nese were being deported and tbat there
is a demand for white labor. Aa you
know, the deportation of the Chinese is
not in sufficient number to create any
demand for white labor from points out
side of the state. The shutting down of
mines and manufactories in the east has
thrown many persons out of work, end
they, in many instances, have become a
charge upon tbe people where they
have reeided. These localities, to rid
themselvea of the burden and expense,
have no doubt encouraged these people
to believe there ia a demand fer white
labor on the coaet. Every commnnity
ahould take care of ita own poor and un
fortunate, and not send them
away aa trampa to be taken care
of by others. We have our own
unemployed to look after, and they
should be considered firat. They have
reaided among us for come time, come of
them for yeara, and tbe wages tbey have
received for their work have been spent
with our merchants, thereby building
up our city and making bueiness pros
perous, for those who have the necessi
ties of life to exchange for the money
earned by the laborer.
There are many propositions, no
doubt, worthy of consideration as to the
best method of handling tbe matter,
but I take the position that onr own
unemployed should be looked after first,
and in order that we may know who our
own are, 1 wouid suggest that the city,
through the proper aonrce, open up a
book and publish a notice to our unem
ployed to come and register, giving
thoir names and whether they married
or eingle, and how many, if any, chil
dren, place of residence, how long tbey
have resided here, what trade they
nave, who they have worked for, and
any references they may desire to give
as to the truthfulneaa of their state
ment, and their worthinees, etc.
Then if the city can create
work on the streets, public parka,
etc., give the work to those who have
expended their wages for tbe upbuild
ing of our city, in preference to those
who have built up other citieß with their
wages, and now come here aa a burden
on our hands. By adopting the above
auggeetion, our laborers who may be
now, or hereafter become unemployed,
through no fault of thoir own, will feel
that we have an intereat in them, and
each one of them will constitute himself
as self-appointed to aid our office™ in
ridding the city of worthless tramps,who
take advantage of the situation to pose
as unemployed, honest laborers, when
perhapa some of them have not done an
honest day's work for yeara. By pro
tecting our own unemployed we will se
cure their co-operation to protect us
from imposition by partiea who should
be taken care of by the people with
whom tbey have resided and spent their
Even if to create work for our unem
ployed should make a tax on our citi
zens tbey have the consolation that these
laborers have aided them to accumlate
money and property by the expenditure
of their wagea among us.
If you conaider the matter worthy of
considerat ion, please give this a place in
your paper. Yours truly,
T. H. Dozan.
A Show for Los Angeles.
Editors Herald : In your isßue of to
day, touching upon the lost opportunity
of the Los Angeles chamber of commerce
to gain by the expected influx of tour
ists that will visit tbe midwinter fair at
San Francisco, I look upon it in this
way: Our chance is yet open for a good
first in tbe race. What bos San Fran
cisco got for an exhibit? By an awful
bard pull she has commenced tbe build
ings for tbe midwinter fair. The builc".
ings completed, and then she will have
to go out of tbe city to get exhibits.
Tbep are depending entirely on foreign
exhibits from Chicago for its novelties,
and of course will look to Southern
California for fruit, flowers and vege
table products, whicb represent this
state at the Chicago fair.
Let the chamber of commerce get a
hump on itself, use the baseball park for
an exhibiting ground, put uo tempor
ary and cheap buildings, work eight
hour shifts of men day and night, and
we can get finished as soon as tbey will
in San Francisco. Tbe expense required
to pay freight and passage of products
and attendants to San Francisco will pay
for all the expense of erecting suitable
buildings for our exhibit at the baseball
park. Some, if not all, of the park
structures can be used with few and in-
expensive changes.
The weather is all favorable for us
here and the expected visitors, while at
San Francisco tbe wind and weather
there ia anything but commendable or
agreeable. Tbe wind averages 25 miles
an hour up to a speed of 70 and HO which
has occurred twice within tbe last 20
days. Instead of taking bnr exhibit
600 miles or more keep it here where the
visitors can see it in its native country,
see it growing, see its surroundings, Bee
the soil, climate, etc., and all else that
makes us so success!al. If we jamp in
and hustle we can get there in good
shape and reap the benefit tbat we
otherwise will give to San Francisco,
and in return we will get it in the neck
so far ns any favors or compliments may
be extended or even acknowledged by
tbe people or press from the north
ern part of the etate. This
is a business project tbat we
have all been working tor for years, and
if each individual business man would
give it one hour a day as much time and
attention as be does his owa business,
what a grand exhibit and time we would
have here this winter, and in the future
the people would know which end of
this state is the business end in fruits,
grain, soil, climate and all tbe good
things that have made thia state pros

Editors Herald: As tbe subject of
reform ia oue tbat is agitating the
present era, we must look at tbe theo
retical side of tbe question. That re
ligious, political and social reforms
are needed, there can be no doubt.
When contemplating tbe present per
turbed state of human affaire, and scan
ning tbe horizon of the future it requires
no prophetic eye to foresee tbe results,
unless immediate action is taken
in regard to come means whereby this re
form maybe accomplished. Whileweare
plunged in distress by the reckless leg
islation of unprincipled minds, and
while men are diacuesing as to the
best means to be employed by Which we
may be extricated from the present dis
tressing dilemma, women are taking ad
vantage of the situation and are endeav
oring to secure the right of fran
chise, so long and unjustly monop
olized by men. By which means
women hope to bring about eventually
tbe needed reforme. The latest move
ment in that direction is called Woman's
Political party, in which every question
that pertains to the welfare of woman
iB discussed. Many of the public
■ spirited women of this city who are
interested in the amelioration of the
present condition of mankind, aa
Well as those who are chiefly
interested in the work of woman suf
frage are active members of this society.
Judging from the interest and enthusi
asm evinced by all, we are led to con
clude tbat the time is not far distant
when women's rights will be conceded,
and she will stand equal with men be
fore the law, which ie the highest evi
dence of a true and national civiliza
tion. Mrs. D. M. Harwood.
