|Essence of Common Sense
From Pat Deveney's database:
Essence of Common Sense, The.
The journal's policy, announced in its first issue, was "to keep within the limits of common sense in every department"-a claim perhaps cast in doubt by its emphasis on astrology and by an article by Alexander J. McIvor-Tyndall on "Prophecy and Prediction." The journal advocated a pure strain of New Thought: "If we are true to Nature and her principles, there can and will be no limit to our Health," and published a series of Common Sense Rules to enable the reader to be true to Nature: "To eat pure food in moderation; to be clean in living; to drink pure water in abundance, with regular bathing; and to have confidence, without fear, anger, malice, revenge, dishonesty, jealousy or strife, will bring about Health, Happiness and Prosperity." Poems by Grace M. Brown. As a premium, the journal offered its reprint of The Higher Socialism, book and a year's subscription for $1.00. Denver Public Library.
