In (bis now and superb work a
noble Ohrlstlan woman tells the
thrilling story cf her personal ex
perience in Gospel, temperence,
mission, and rescue-work in a great
city. No recent publication la now
commanding so much attention nor
has any other called forth such
ringing words of "God-speed" from
ministers and eminent women. Ii
has been preached from famous
pulpits,read by tens of thousands
of subscribers, and made the sub
ject of many a clergyman's Sunday
evening lectures. Its authorship
Is fourfold, its four authors being
no less than:?Mrs. Helen Gamp
bell, Rev. Lyman Abbott, D. D.,
Ool. Thomas W. Knox.and Inspec
tor Thomas Byrnes, Chief of the
New York Detective Bureau.
Mrs. Campbell, the principal
writer, certainly was a woman
commissioned of God, and "In His
Name"speut many years as a city
missionary literally "In Darkest
New Yopk." What r wonderful
work sho did. How c oted and
blessed her labors Wti2?j It is a
story never to bo forgt - en. This
unique volume presents these
thrilling experiences of Christian
endeavor with I ho hundreds of pa
thetic and amusing scenes that
were packed into them; it portrays
life In a great city by day and
night "As Seen by a Woman"; It
shows the power of the Gospel to
redeem, souls from the lowest
depths; it gives striking testimon
ies of the redeemed; and from all
diese rich and varied experiences
it draws living truths for head and
heart that aro worth to any reader
ten times the price of the book.?
Mr?. Campbell's account of rescue
work Is full of wonderfully touch
ing incidents. Stranger stories are
here told than romance ever
dreamed of, every one of Ihem
drawn from real lifo by a woman's
band. In every chapter she weaves
in anecdote?after anecdote, inci
dent after incident, story after
story, and the reader's attention is
held breathless to the end of the
volume. "Strange but most sug
gestive is the fact," says Bishop
Coke in warmly commending this
volume,"that Christ is to be vis
ited in these dens and dives; there
aro those whom He will bear in
mind when He says: "Ye visited
me'; or, when he says: "Ye did It
not to Me."
Rev. Dr. Lyman Abbott's life
long interest in City Mission work,
and bis personal share in that
work, pre-eminently fitted him to
write for this book. In his Intro
duction to it he says?
"My interest in these phases of
city life dates from my college days.
From that time to this?over a
third of a century?I have con
tinued the studies then begun, and
the subject of this book has been
one of the great subjects of my
study?sometimes In literature, of
ten in life."
No appeal from temperance ad
vocate can do more to promote the
causo of temperance than the thrill
ing scenes and incidents so well
described, at least so says Mrs.
Mary A. Livermore and Miss Fran
cis E. Wlllard.
One of the most nbsorbingly In
teresting portions of the book Is
that written by Inspector Byrnes
giving the ripe experience of thirty
years of detective life. Many of
the startling revelations he makes
are taken from his private diary.
They have nover before been pub
This fascinating volume is in
deed a wonderful tale of Christian
lovo and faith, all alive with in
tense and striking reality. The
best of it is that it is a pure and ele
vating book from beginning to end
- a volume for the family use. On
this point the words of R?v. Dr.
Twlchell (who has a family of ten
ichlldren) end Rev. Dr. Magoun,
President Iowa College, aro worth
quoting here: Dr. Twichell writes,
?"My wife says that sho is going
to set our young peoploon the book
right off, for the good it will do
them"; and President Magoun
says,?"My family finds,
where other books on our ehelves
lack Interest, this one always holds
and rewards attention."
It contains 252 superb engrav
ings, overy one of them made from
photographs taken from life-, most
ly by flash-light. Every portrait is
a face portrait, every scene a stern
reality. In looking at these splen
did illustrations the reader sees at
a glance just how Gospel work is
carried on by day 'and by night
by rescue-hands, ,) he Is shown
strange sights in out of the way
