thority for the great body of religious
opinion extant, even If portions of it
shall be admitted to be objectionable
as reading matter in our schools; while
literature everywhere will be the gainer
by placing the Scriptures on the high
plane where they belong.
This is real progress that is being
made now in the study of the Bible,
and the Christian world should be con
gratulated upon it. The great body Ot
sincere Christians are already united in

A TRIBUTE To CELIA THAXTER.
Gerald Stanley Lane in the Critic pays
a just and beautiful tribute to the mem
ory of Strs. Thaxter, whose poems have
made her island home on the coast of
New England famous:
•■Shi' lived the island Into her life. She
became its scientist, its experience, its
biography. She bad at once tlie inten
sity and the finish of knowing perfectly;
and. with the driftwood to teach her
mystery, and the soft mists to bring
dreams from over the sea. she became a
j oet—a voice of winds and waters and
flowers. Appledore is her masterpiece.
Tlie island with all its neighborhood of
cloud will always belong to her. It is
literature now. It Is copyrighted. Like
letters will the seasons come across the
greater waters—from her n> those who
visit there. The soul has gone forth
from behind the eyes, it shall never go
forth from this Island In the sea. When
the music is still and the ivy-windows
are blown from tbe porch and the holly
hocks are broken and love has Rone
ashore—she waits for us. Wrapped in
the shadow of tlie snow, the desolate
winter comes out of the gray sea and
wanders like Forget fulness where the
poppies sleep, and visits her grave alone;
but to us she will come in the blooming
time of June—and be Appledore."
This is as appreciative of the highest
mission of literature itself as it is of the
sweet singer whose memory is so dear
to every lover of poetry.

A SINGULAR LIFE. By Elisabeth
Stuart Phelps, Houghton, Milllin
This remarkable book, by all odds tlv>

biographical writing to create a new in
terest in Mrs. Phelps-Ward's books, and
in herself—a distinct literary revival. Tt
may be, too. St. Agatha's Supply, that
beautiful little roster-time volume,
might also have contributed to this new
Perhaps the most remarkable tribute
paid to this story was by the literary
critic of the London Christian World, a
tribute so appreciative and so Sincere
that we append extracts from it. Of
Emanuel Bayard, the "Christ Man," of
tho poor fisherman of wisdom, he has
these strong words of appreciation and
"Into the full suffering or the life of
Christ the best of us may hardly say
we enter. The life of Emanue] Bayard
makes that suffering very near. We. who
above all else are very human, are corn
pelted to bow down In fore the hourly
heroism of the man who gave his ||f..
lor his people. He holds us. as he held
his hearers, and the vision of his face
is, with Stephen, as the face of an angel.
The book is permeated with the breath
of the sea, with its mother-call of sym
pathy, its passionate throes, its match
less strength, and eternal question and
appeal. Miss Phelps knows Its caresses
and its pain, the men and women whom
it makes or mars, and as we read w c
know them too. IWth Bayard we light
lor life in the storm; we weep for Angel
alley; we thrill at the echo of Helen's
voice as the tide rose, and 'those mighty
lovers, the sea and the shore, urged and
answered, resisted and yielded, protest
ed and pleaded, retreated and met. loved
and elapsed, and slept. There is a wind
blown, wild-flower fragrance about Hel

amongst Miss Phelp's gallery of beau
Of the minor characters of the book
the critic hits to say that the fishermen
folk with whom Bayard and Helen had
to deal, were "like our own Cornish
fishermen." members of that universal
brotherhood of old-time sailors. Of the
author herself, these words are just:
"There is something in Miss Phelps'
writing which disarms criticism. Lik2
Helen, she captures one. We feel her
power too strongly to define the exact
point in which it is strongest. Possibly
for each individual soul she will speak
in Individual accents; the certainty is.
that to each thinking soul she is bound
to speak. For—and herein lies tlie force
and conviction of the book—Miss Phelps
stands amongst those whose aim is to
leave a message of faith with the world.
The band is no large one: there are but
few living writers to whom one can turn
for honest help and guidance. Some few
aim at being wholesome; far more, at
awakening the senses by means which
are almost as unlawful as a defined sin.
Miss Phelps has the spontaneity of
Kingsley, blended with a wonderful psy
chology. She is so reverent, too. Every
thing Is real to her—heaven, Immortaii
lty, Christ. And to us, in listening to her
message, It all becomes infinitely more
near and near. We learn to look out be
yond this small life's tragedy, and to see
clearer the helpful, laboring souls of
men and women with strong natures
and loyal hearts. Miss Phelps is satis
fied with nothing less than the best
in life, In love and in religion."

There is small need to remind the
reader of the many volumes Mr.Craw
tord lias turned out. He has Inns kept
the publishers busy and the public,
too, for that matter. It has been the
fashion lately among the critics to
treat Crawford as overdoing the matter
of making new bunks and overdrawing
his account with novel readers, and it is
a fact that he may have written too
much, been too much the slave of time
and had too heavy a pressure on him to
do the best in everything. Still, in the
volume before us, ho seems very sure
of his ground, and writes with the same
Arm touch as of old.
The world Is full of mothers like Mrs.
Bowrlng. that is. the world or travelers
who go about from place to place in
search or health and comfort—and many
things beside not always stated or even
rally understood. It Is a pretty seem—
the scone of so many Crawford stories—
where this mother and her daughter
Clare look out upon the soft sea that
"blue at their foot, and quite still, but
further out the westerly breeze that
swept past the Conca combed tt to crisp
roughness; then it was less blue to the
southward, and gradually it grew less
real, till it lost color and melted Into a
skv-hazo that almost hid the southern
mountains and the lizard-like head of
the far Dicnsa."
We shall leave the plot of the story to
tho reader, who will find the text most
beautifully anil aptly Illustrated, and
only commend its literary style to the
careful study of the many who have
feared that the author had written him
self out. .
We cannot forbear, however, to pre
sent this fine bit of the picture of Clare
Bowrlng, the pale and quiet and weakly
young girl, who was surely delicate, if
not really 111, as she sat "In the deep
straw chair hatless. with bare white
hands that held her work. Her thick,
flaxen hair. Btratghtly parted and
smoothed away from its low growin

for beauty, cast very faint light
shadows as she looked down; but when
she raised the lids, the dark blue eves
were bright, with wide pupils and a
straight look, quick to fasten, slow to let
go. never yet quite softened, and never
yet mannishly hard. Hut In its own way,
perhaps, there is no look so hard as the
look of maiden Innocence can bo. There

unconscious stare. There is a spirit of

* • "There Is no equality, and no com
munity In virtue; It is only original sin
thai makes us all equal and human."
The story ends at what would seem
to be the real turning point, but the
author chouses this to be, since "real
life has no conclusions but real death,
and that is a sad ending to a, tale, and
one whioh may as well lie left to the
imagination, when it is possible."
SPRING NOTES FROM TENNES

This handsome volume is made tip
from a delightful group of papers never
before In book form. Our readers, how
ever, will recall at least one or two of
these secretly given to the world in
magazine articles, especially Chica
mauga and On Missionary Ridge.
Nothing could be more captivating
.ban these sketches, in which are so in
geniously blended the short insight and
observations of the keen naturalist with
the broad knowledge of the man of the
world. We have talk of birds and bird
ways in the midst of war hlstorv, and
descriptions of the lields whereon the
bloody strife raged for years. But while
we express a preference for these later
and especially mentioned sketches, all
are charming and perfect of their kind

January and July, as given on Rand.
McNally & Co.'s school globe, Will show
that we can boast of more than an Italy.
The mean Isothermal line for January,
from San Diego around the globe,
passes through Galveston, New Orleans
and Jacksonville in the I'nited States;
thence to the southern coast of the
Mediterranean sea, between Alexandria
and Jerusalem; thence through the Per
sian gulf. Lahore, India, and Foo Chow,
China. The mean isothermal line for
July follows the Pacific coast north to
Kolzebue sound, in Northern Alasks;
thence east through Northern Canada,
passing through Hudson bay and Lab
rador: thence to Sweden and Norway,
and back to this coast through North
Thus it will be seen that San Diego
has a warmer climate in winter than
Italy, and one that is much cooler in
summer. According to the official rec
ords of the i'nited States signal service
during twenty-two years, from 1572 to
IXO4. out of 5035 days, 744,'p were clear or
fair, ami there were only 1*35 days in
which rain fell to the amount of .01 of

It requires a temperature of 28degrees
to kill oranges or lemons. From 1886 to
1891—6206 days— there were 6006 days of
temperature not above SO degrees nor
below 40 degrees. "Cold snaps" and
"heated spells" are unknown in San Di
PLACES OF INTEREST
Resorts and places of interest sur
round the city. There is the Sweet
water dam. which is reached by a short
ride on a suburban railroad, the Nation
al City and Otay, taking on through a
well-cultivated valley to the high mesa
lands. The dam is of solid masonry, is
HO feet high, 100 feet long and 45 feet in
thickness at the base. Its cost was
over $200,000, and it Is regarded as one
of the most remarkable pieces of en
gineering in the United States.
OLD TOWN AND LA JOLLA
On the line of the San Diego. Pacific
Beach and La Jolla railroad. One may
stop off at Old Town" and see the ruins
of Fort Stockton, the Presidio, the
graceful old palms, the veterans of the
state. 150 years old. and the old mission
church established by Padre Junipero
In 1780, where Helen Hunt Jackson's
Ramona was married. Here, too, are
the "melodious old hells of Old Town."
As there are several trains a day each
way. one may. after a review of historic
Old Town, go on to La Jolla. one of the
most popular resorts on the coast of
California. Here the surf is grand: the
beach and rocks abound in fine shells
und mosses. The caves are wonderful,
and delightful hours may be spent in
exploring them. The place Is full of
surprises and is a natural prk.
A pilgrimage along the banks of the
San Diego river, through the lovely
Mission valley, brings one to the pathet
ically beautiful old mission.
On this point is situated the pictur
esque old light house, the highest in the
world. The view from the top is simply
soul inspiring. Such a panarama nf

All who visit Han Diego must perceive
at once the importance of the harbor of
San Diego as the terminus of v trans

Diego, all things considered, has the
best harbor on the coast, having a uni
form climate, perfect anchorage and se
cnrltv rrnm winds In any direction, On
the whole roast of California, over 700
miles, therp are hut two natural land
locked harbors, San Francisco and San
Diego. The latter, although not as
large, is more easy of access and safer
for shipping than San Francisco. There
Is less rain, fog or thick haze and more
clear weather in this vicinity than at all
points to the northward, and the en
trance is less difficult to make and en
ter on that account. Large vessels can
go about seven miles up the bay with an
anchorage width of channel of 800 yards
between the four fathom lines at low
water. This Indicates sufficient capac

The depth over the bar at low tide is
twenty two feet.
