This is one of the transformations of Eternal Progress (q.v.). The name was changed, Larson later complained, because "first-class advertisers" would not advertise in what appeared to be a New Thought magazine. To attract a more general audience (as well as "first-class advertisers"), the journal offered novelettes, articles on "Wireless Telegraphy, and the Aeroplane," "Halley's Comet," "Novels that Have Made Authors Rich," and the like, and an extensive a children's page ("Our Boys and Girls," Conducted by Uncle Booker) and book reviews on topics of general interest. Contributions by Larson ("Your Forces and How to Use them"), William Walker Atkinson (on "Eugenics, the New Science": "It is being recognized clearly that the Race may be, and should be, improved, consciously, deliberately and scientific ally, instead of being allowed to ‘jest grow up,' like Topsy"), Lida A. Churchill, et al. Beals, the manager of the journal, went on to be co-author and publisher of several series of books with Atkinson, and also wrote in Neue Gedanken.
