" NOTHING TOO Much."
THERE is an old Greek adage, undèv ayar, “nothing too much." Therein is much wisdom, for it lays down the injunction to tread that middle way which lies between extremes. In perhaps no book of modern times has that injunction been so flagrantly set at defiance as in the two volumes of biography and autobiography which have just issued from the pen of Mr. Edward Maitland, in recording the experiences of himself and the late Dr. Anna Kingsford, the writers of The Perfect Way and other works. (Anna Kingsford, Iler Life, Letters, Diary, and Work, by Edward Maitland. London, Redway, 1896. Price 315. 6d. net.)
We are quite willing to believe in the sincerity of the biographer and recorder of the experiences of Mrs. Kingsford, but we cannot have confidence in the accuracy of the author with regard to the controversial incidents which form no inconsiderable part of the narrative. We do not intend, however, to revive ancient history, and quote the views of the “other side," for no one is any longer interested in the matter. It is sufficient to remark with regard to the presidency of the London Lodge, that the majority of the members of that Lodge preferred their studies conducted on the lines of the possibility of help from living men who were trained seers, rather than those of the “illuminations of the gods " which were entirely out of the control of the recipient. Mr. Sinnett's point-blank denial of the allegation that he denied the truth of reincarnation also gives us pause, and so with other things personal.
