PREFACE.

The nineteenth century closes with December 31, 1900, and that point of time also closes the eighteenth volume of this serial magazine. Each annual volume suggests how rapidly we pass along in the course of time, and we at the same time ask our. selves, what progress has been made ? When we make up the index to the volume, it is then that we realize the amount of information that has been gleaned for this annual volume. We certainly need a general index to the volumes and have promised one before now, but do not find the time to make one. Heuce, we will now make an offer of the last ten volumes to the person who will make and send us a full and complete index to these eighteen volumes, 1882-1900, and we will loan a set for the purpose to the one who will accomplish it.

Several requests have been made to reprint some articles and poems, and in a few instances we have done so, namely, the Theosophical inaugural address, the Poe poems, the Cleopatra poems, and some other short poems.

Some of the subscribers to the more recent volumes have furnished various questions and items that have already been published, and the questions answered in the earlier volumes. We have generally replied to such contributors by letter giving the references to the volumes.

We have ample material in stock for the new century volume, but this need not debar any patron from sending in more copy, as we shall have a larger variety of material to select from.

• Seize upon truth where'er 'tis found,

On Christian or on Heathen ground;
Among your friends, among your foes,
The flower's divine where'er it grows."
