WHERE DWELLS THE SOUL SERENE
By STANTON KIRKHAM DAVIS
"It ought to carry inspiration to many world-weary people."-Toledo Blade.
"A work that will add much to the spiritual enlightenment of humanity. It should be widely read and studied."- World's Advance Thought.
"The author has taken firm hold upon the realities of the Unseen, and here is his strength. He has brought to his task a keen scholarship, a ripe judgment and a simplicity of soul truly charming."-Light of Truth.
"The style in which this unpretending book is written has a touch of Emerson about it-sometimes a glimpse of Ruskin. Poet, philosopher and Nature-lover is the writer, and he gives to his soul of Nature a monologue on the seasons-a charming and original revelation."-Minneapolis Times.

We congratulate the author upon having given to the world a work which will be valued throughout the century."-Herald of the Golden Age.
“ There is one mind common to all individual men. Every man is an inlet to the same and to all of the same. Let a man then know his worth.”

"The globe on which we ride is only a larger apple falling from a larger tree.”—Ibid.
"Each step in the external mastery of nature means the taking up into our spirits of some added portion of the universe."-Dresser.

Duration is a factor of the former. At the threshold of a new year it is natural to make at least a cursory survey of conditions, both retrospective and prospective. Time, relation and progress belong to the category of the relative. But it is never amiss to study the march of truth and to watch the procession of events in the light of the absolute, to the extent that we can command it. The most efficient method of investigation is through comparison and contrast. Our study of the shifting scenes of environment must be mingled with and lighted up by glimpses of the ideal.
