disappointed poet, whose aspirations and ex-
pectations of life were so soon blighted,
would have been a peerless figure in the
history of poesy had he not allowed these
disappointments to so overshadow his mind
that he was not equal to a great effort
of concentration, in which he should bring
forth the grandest capabilities of his mind
and soul, regulating his own life according
to a high code of honor, and throwing
its light forth to aid in the agitation and
accomplishment of reforms during his
time. He realized that such changes were
needed, but he also had a keen reali-
zation of the insensibility and cruel in-
gratitude of those benefited, which is the
cause of much suffering and sometimes
a veritable crucifixion of him who con-
scientiously carries out his ideas of im-
provement. He says in his poem to Prome-
thus:

Thy Godlike crime was to be kind,

To render with thy precepts less

The sum of human wretchedness,
And strengthen Man with his own mind ;
But baffled as thou wert from high,
Still in thy patient energy,
In the endurance, and repulse

Of thine impenetrable Spirit.
Which Earth and Heaven could not convulse,

A mighty lesson we inherit ;
Thou art a symbol and a sign

To Mortals of their fate and force ;
Like thee, Man is in part divine,

A troubled stream from a pure source ;
A Man in portions can foresee
His own funereal destiny ;
His wretchedness, and his resistance,
And his sad unallied existence ;
To which his Spirit may oppose
Itself— and equal to all woes,

And a firm will, and a deep sense,

Which ev'n in torture can descry

Its own concentred recompense,
Triumphant where it dares defy,
And making Death a Victory.

G. L. B.



THE PATH OF PRAYER.

Among the gnarled pines of old Japan

That shade a hill where patient crickets sing,

I chanced upon a terraced path which ran
Upward beneath a mystic covering.

A hundred sacred gates the pathway keep,

Each shaped of two straight beams and one across,

With rigid angles mounting up the steep,

Their dull red hue bepatched with ancient moss.

At either side, thick in the grassless mold,

Two fluttering lines of white still rise beyond —

Small written slips of paper that unfold
As banners pendent from a mimic wand.

And while I wondered, suddenly a name

Flashed to me, and I knew the Path of Prayer

Where Kwannon, Queen of Mercy, nightly came
To read the sad petitions planted there.

I mused upon that gentle race anew,
With love and pity aching in my breast,

And then — I knelt where evening shadows grew
To place my small petition with the rest.

Vice-President of the Pacific Bank, of San Francisco.



PRESS NOTICES:



Mr. McDonald's work on the Nicaragua
Canal should be read by every American citizen
who has the interest of his country at heart. —
Portland Teltgvam.

The volume embraces a collection of the
soundest and most comprehensive opinions and
statistics, bearing upon the economic and polit-
ical questions of the period that has lately been
given to the public, and should be read by all
who desire to vote intelligently. — I he Inde-
pendent, Calistoga.

The work is artistic from a typographical
point of view and the subject matter is treated
in a terse, scholarly manner. — Winters /Ex-
press.

We are in receipt of a literary work entitled
"The Nicaragua Canal and Other Essays on
Political Economy," by Richard H. McDonald
Jr., Vice President of the Pacific Bank of San
Francisco. The writer is undoubtedly a
scholarly, but what amounts to a great deal
more, a thinking man. One would sup-
pose that the topics which he discusses had
been utterly exhausted by this time, but all of
his essays are so very masterfully handled that
they appear decidedly new to an attentive
reader — Santa Barbara Independent.

Mr. McDonald has the ability to make even
a dry subject interesting reading, and in that
respect he surpasses many writers on political
economy. — Santa Barbara Independent.

" The Nicaragua Canal and Other Essays on
Political and Economic Topics," by R. H.
McDonald, Jr., is the title of a neat brochure
issued by the Californian Publishing Co.
These articles have already appeared in print
and attracted much attention on account of the
recognized ability with which the subjects
were presented. Mr. McDonald is a thorough



student, and the salient points of the questions
under discussion are brought out clearly and
forcibly. The papers are instructive as well as
entertaining, and few can peruse them without
feeling that they have added to tin ir stock of
general information, as well as received a new
impetus to thought on some of the vital issues
of the dav. — Contra Costa Gazette, Martinez.
Cal.

From the Californian Publishing Co., we are
in receipt of " The Nicaragua Canal and Other
Essays," contributed at various times to the
Magazine by Richard H. McDonald, Jr. Thes
essays treat of labor, political and economic
problems, and evince careful study in theii
treatment. They are handsomely printed am
bound in a neat pamphlet and worthy of th<
wide circulation which they will undoubtedb
attain.— Mission Journal, San Francisco.

"The Nicaragua Canal and Other Essays,
by Richard H. McDonald, Jr., issued by tl
Californian Publishing Co. , of San Francisc<
is an attractive pamphlet of sixty-one pages
made up of a series of articles by the autln
that have appeared in the Californian MagE
zine. As the papers deal with topics of pei
manent interest and relate to the great ques
tions of the day, they have been collected b]
the author and reprinted at the request
many persons who are interested in them, an<
who believe that the great principles repi
sented in them should be promoted by circi
lating these essays throughout the country
The contents of the pamphlet are rt The Nic
aragua Canal," "Is Labor in Danger? " "The
Regulation of Railway Charges," "How tc
Secure Good Municipal Government," " Polit-
ical Duty of Californians," "Our Commercial
Growth and Tariff," with a reply by Senator
Stephen M. White. — Mercury, San Jose.
