A VETERAN'S WARNING. There is less excuse than ever for the advocacy of moderation, for we have now such an array of medical testimony in support of total abstinence that ought largely to influence public opinion, and lead to the abandonment of alcohol altogether. Dr. Richardson and others have demonstrated beyond all doubt that so far from alcoholic liquor being useful as a sustainer of the body, it is directly the cause of most its ailments. Bring the people over to a non-alcoholic diet and you have them rational and safe, but allow them alcohol in however diminished qualities, the appetite grows upon them until more and more is craved for. - If I found that it was getting the better of me I would give it up at once." So once said a young man to me; in twelve months he was in his grave! His wife died, and in his trouble he sought relief in drink. How many thousands have had the madness to seek relief from trouble in drink, and found in place of relief or solace only disgrace and ruin. The loss of a wife, the death of a child, a season of adversity, or a flush of prosperity, often drives men to the bottle, avd once begun, nearly in every case it has a direful if not fatal end. In one of the worst cases I can remember I asked the husband—“Whatever can it be that led your wife to conduct herself in this shameful way?" He replied—“I believe it was the glass of beer that she began to take to dinner and supper.” Here then is the danger of tempting the palate by the moderate use of alcohol, even in the humble garb of beer. Here is a warning to every female to banish the beer bottle from the house; and equally a warning to all—male and female, rich and poor, tho educated and uneducated, religious or irreligious ;-all suffer alike if they tamper with the evil thing.–J. LIVESEY's Annual Temperance Address.

PROSPECTUS.
PROGRESSIVE LITERATURE

PUBLICATION FUND.

For enabling Depositors to obtain any quantity of the
CHOICEST WORKS ON SPIRITUALISM AND PROGRESS

AT COST PRICE,
AND WITHOUT INCURRING ANY RISK OR LIABILITY,

For several years the most activo promoters of the spiritual movement

have aided the Progressive Library and Spiritual Institution in creating

a popular literaturo on the subject by depositing to current account

various sums of monos, to be taken out, at a special price, in such

useful works as might be iesued from time to time. This system has

been somewhat extended in the case of the “ Dialectical Report”—a 155.

book which, wben re-edited and pruned of redundant matter, was a

better book than in tho original form, and was sold to subscribers at

one-sixth of the cost. By this plan nearly 3000 copies woro put immo

diately into circulation-á work which could not have been effected in

the old way by years of advertising and the exponditure of four timnos

the money.

The Menorial Edition of Judge Edmondo's Letters on Spiritualism

furnishes anot bor example in which, on the subscription principle, each
participator obtained one or moro copios of a valuable work at lous than
half the price charged for the cheapast department of literature.

The “ Researches” of Mr. Crookes aro also being issued on the same
plan, and when complete the work will be offered at about ono-third of
previous prican.

This plan has been so strikingly successful and has given such
unmixed satisfaction that the most liberal frionds of the movement
bare urged its more extended adoption.

In establishing the “Progressive Literature Publication Fund" two

of valuable works of universal interest in such a manner that the ox.

penditure of any given sum of monoy will produce the greatnat result.

To be successful in the economical production and diffusion of literature

it must first be stated what items increase the price of books, and thon

means may be employed which will lossen expenses and secure ci sap worke

The first and inevitable item is the cost of producing the books; then

there is the author's interest therein, or copyright; thirdly, interest on

capital; fourthly, publisher's profit, or working expenses; fifthly, the

cost of advertising; and sixthly, discounts to the retail trade. By the

principle of unity of interests and mutual co-operation now proposed

these expenses may be reduced about one-half.

I.-As to Production.

(a) Cost of getting out a Book.This depends much on tho numbor
printed. Every depositor or prospective purchaser in obtaining other
purchasers cheapens the book to bimself. The managor, having a
thorough knowledge of the printing and publishing business, can pro-
duce works as cheap as any houso in the trade.

(6) Copyright.-The Progressive Limmary now holds tho copyright of
many valuable works; in other cases there is no copyright.“ Authors
would be disposed to deal liberally under this arrangement, seeing that
the profits go direct into the cause of Spiritualism, and not into the
pocket of an individual who is anxious to make himself rich out of tho
wort. By this plan tho author might be more generously treated
than in ordinary cases, as the other expenses would be less and the
prospects of an extended circulation would bo greater.

(c) Capital. This is the scrow that keeps down all truly progressivo
enterprises. By tho present plan Spiritualists and others becoming
depositors may hold the screw in their own hands. Every depositor is a
proprietor without any further risk than the amount of his deposit,
and the risk in that respoct is nil, as the publishing department has
lately been supplied with an augmentation of capital to cover all its
usual engagements.

(d) Working Expenses.—These are in all cases limited to the bare
necessities of the case. The “Dialectical Report" and the "Memorial
Edition of Judge Edmondo's Works " aro instances of wonderfully cheap
books after the working expenses have been fully added. The more or.
tended the circulation of any book, and the more frequently new books
appear, the less will the working expenses be in proportion. The position
which the publishing department of the Spiritual Institution now com-
mands, after twelve years' standing, ronders it the most eligiblo channel
for the publication of Progressive works in the eastern hemisphere
Depositon havo full advantago of this position in associating themselves
with this work. The amo capital placed in any other house would not
realise one half of the results. All prestige, copyrights, storeo-plates,

engravings, and property whatsoever, are freely placed side by side with

the contributions of the smallest depositor to produce a result in which

all shall mutually participate.

II.-Distribution.

() Advertising.–This essential service can be chiefly performed
through the organs of the Institution, and by prospectuses and placards
to be used by depositors or their agents, the cost of which may be
Pacluded in working expenses."

Trade Discounts. These would bo entirely narod; and depositor
could orau mupply the trade on the usual terms and have a good proit,

Plan Proposed to Depositors.
In accordance with these conditions, it is proposed that £1,000 bo

raised as a "Progressive Literature Publication Fund,” by deposits on

the following terms:--

£1 is the lowest sure which will be received as a deposit, but any sum

above £1 may be deposited, and which will be placed to the credit of the
depositor's account, at the following rates of interest or discount :- If
allowed to remain one month or upwards, interest will be allowed at the
rate of 2} per cent., or 6d. in the pound; three months or upwards, 5
per cent., or ls. in the pound ; six months or upwards, 6 per cent. per an-
num. Thus a dopositor by turning bis money three times in the year may
earn 15 per cont. interest on capital, besides what profit be may sake on
the sale of the works he takes out. All deposits to be returned in works
at tho choice of the depositor at the subscription price. Clubs may be
formed, the members of which, by uniting be smallest subscription, may
enjoy all the benefits of this co-operative system. Interest will be
calculated and placed to depositor's credit each time the amount in hand
is either augmented or diminishod. Fractions of a pound under 10s.
will not be subject to interest. This plan may be adopted :

1st.—To supply dealors with stock on tho lowest torms.

2nd.- Energetic Spiritualists and Progressives may sell large num.
b rs of books at subscription prioo to friends and neighbours, and thus
do a great deal of good with no los to themselves, and have a fair
interest for capital investod.

3rd.—Liberal friends of the movement, who have means at their
disposal, inay in this way make ono pound go as far as three in obtaining
parcels of the bost books for distribution to libraries, &c.

4th. Those who have cash at their disposal may invest a sum of
money, and giro some energetic and intelligent, yet poor brother, an
opportunity of selling he works; or books may be placed with a book-
heller for sale, and by this means the literaturo may be brought before
the public in all parts of the country.

5th.-Clubs or socioties may thus provide their individual monibers
with private libraries of the best books at the lowest possible price,
or books may be obtained for circulating libraries on the best terms.

6th.-Persons who bave cash lying idle may invest it in this fund, and
in return obtain the very liberal interost offered.

7th.—These advantages aro offered to foreigners as well as to residents

in the British Islands.

8th.-Foreign works may be imported, and choice books already pub-

lished in this country may be secured for depositors at the lowest prices

by an adaptation of this plan.

9th.-As the object held in view is to help ono another to enlighten

the public on the most important truths which the human mind can

pxercise itself, this plan aan bo of us to all who have the interests

of the causo at beart.

10th.—Depositors may tako out the balance due to them in any kind

of books and publications, British ud Foreign ; in printing of books or

hondbills; in stationery of all kinds ; in subscriptions to periodicals, or

towards other objects; or in any goods or line of business advertised by

the general business dopartment of the Spiritual Institution.

Security to Depositors.

The interests of depositors are fully protected by arrangemants which

aro already in operation, so that works purchased at subscription price

aro not sold to tho publio at less than tho usual publishing price. For

example: Tho “Dialoctical Report” was sold to subscribers at 2s. Ca.

per copy, but to the public at br., and as soon as the work was ready,

each copy costing 25. 6d. becamo at once worth 58. "The Memorial

Edition of the 'Lotters and Tracta' by Judge Edmonds" was sold to sub-

scribors at 10d. in paper wrappors, but is publishod at 28.; and the cloth

edition subscribed at 1.. 6d. is sold to the public at 3.6d. These pub-

lishing prices will be in all casu sorupulously maintained, enabling

subscribers to roalise tho fullest advantago from the investment of their

capital, and on a businou as well as on a moral basis push the circulation

of information on Spiritualism to the fullost extent. Of course deposi.

tors are at liberty to sell the works they take out at full publishing

price or at any reduction therefrom which may seem expedient to them.

Belves.

The past workings and woll-known character of the Progressivo

Library and Spiritual Institution is tho best possible guarantee that

full justice will be done in overy transaction, while the best available

works will bo placed beforo depositors for their acceptance. No person

will be compelled to accopt any book of which he does not approve, or

for which bo has no use. The suggestions and wants of depositors will

at be all times considered, as those works oan alone be brought out for

which capital is promptly deposited.

CONTENTS OF THE “SPIRITUAL LYRE.” (Sold separately: Paper, 6d. ; Cloth, 1s.) INDEX OF FIRST LINES.

All men are equal in Weir birth Here we meet with joy together One sweet flower has dropped and faded The voice of an angel

Augels, briglitangels, are ever around How clieering the thought

Our blest Exemplar, ere he breathed The world has much of beautiful

Angels brigiit are drawing near How puze in heart and sound in head Our God is love: and would he doom The world may change from old to new

Array ed in clouds of golden light low sweet, how heu renly is the sight O Thou unknown, almighty Cause There is a calm for those who weep

A-seinbled at the closing hour

lloly Spirit, kindly bloss its

0 Thou, to whom in ancient time There is a land my cye hath seen

As we port our prayer ascendeth llow shall I know Thee in the sphere o Thou who driest the mourner's tear There is a land of pure delight

Author of good, we rest on Thee (right If 'tis sweet to mingle where

Part in peace! is day before us? There is a pure, a peaceful wave,

he firm and be faithful: desert uot the Immortal praise to God be givca Peace bo thine, and angels greet thee There is a state, unknown, unseen

aim on the bosom of thy God

In the broad fields of heaven

Praise for the glorious light

There is no Geath—'tis but a slade

day to clay, and dust to dust

In the lone and silent midnight Praise God, from whom all blessings flow They are passing, upward passing

me they, when the shades of evening In the sky that is above us

Praiso to thee, though great Creator They are winging, they are winging

Therish faith in one another

Is it not sweet to think, hereafter Prayer is the soul's sincere desire Thou art, O God, the light and life

Death is the fading of a cloud

is heaven a place where pearly streams Bai its above hold sweet communion Thou art the first and thou the last

Karth is waking, day is breaking It is a faith sublime and sure

Bhail we gather at the river

Thou who art enthroned above

Eternal source of light and life Joy and pain to all are given

Slie passed in beauty! liko a rose Though wandering in a stranger-land

Far from mortul cares retreating Let monumental pillars rise

Should sorrow o'er thy brow

Thy name be hallowed opormoro

Father, breathe an evening blessing Let one loud song of praise arlse Sleep on your pillow

To theo the Lord Almighly

Father of all, in every ago

Life is onward, - 1188 it

Blowly by God's hand unfurled To the father's love we trunt

Floating on the breath of crening Life is the liour that lies between Soon shall the trump of freedom To the world of spirit gladness

For all by gifts we praise Thee, Lord Lo, in the golden sky

Sow in the morn thy seed

True prayer is not th' impoving sound

Forever wakefully the air is turning Lol the day of rest declineth

Speak gontly, it is better far

Your souls, like shadows on the ground

Forward ! the day is breaking

Lord ! subdue our selfish will

Bpirits bright are ever nigh

We come at morn and dewy eve

Friends never leave us, those who call Lord ! what a fleeting breath

Star of Progress, guide us onward We gladly como to-day

From realms supernal, fair and bright Love all! there is no living thing Supreme o'er all Jehovah reigns

We do not dio-we cannot die

From the recesses of a lowly spirit Lore never sleeps! the mother's eye Sweet are the ties that bind in one We will not fear the beauteous angel

God is Lore : luis mercy brightene May the grace of guardian angels Tell me not in mournful numbers Welcome angels, pure and bright

God that madet carth and leaven Mortal, the Angels say

The Lord is my Shepherd; no want shall! Whatever clouds may dim the day

Gracious source of every blessing My God, my Father, while I stray The mourners came, at break of day When fortune beams around you

Guide me, Thou great Jehovah Nearer, my God, to thee

Tbo morning light is breaking

When I survey life's varied scene

Hail! the heavenly scenes of peace No bitter tears for thee be shed

Tho morn of peace is beaming

When in the busy haunts of men

Hand in hand with angels

No human eye thy face may see The dead are like the stars by day with silence only as their benedictis

Hark! hark ! from grove and fountain Now the shades of night are gone The mystery of the Spirit's birth Wlien sorrow on the spirit teeds

Hark! the songs of angels ewell Now to heaven our prayer ascending The outward world is dark and drear Whien the hours of day are nonton

Hath not thy heart within thice burned? Ocean and laud the globe divide The perfect world by Adam trod When the evening star is stealing

Heaven is here ; ito hymns of gladness O give thanks to him wbo made The Sabbath sun was setting slow Whien troables overflow the soul

He sendeth sun, He sendeth shower O God of agea, by whose hand

The Bage his cup of hemlock quaffed Wilt thou not visit me

Here at thy grave we stand

O land of blise, my heart now turns The spacious firmament on high With sunshine always on his fig:
