This was a very highbrow journal whose contributors seemed equally divided among bishops, physicians and professors-including Elliott Coues and Oliver Lodge. It proclaimed its purpose as "to furnish, in a popular manner, information regarding psychical questions, the relations of mind to the body and their reciprocal action, with special bearings on disease and health, and to give the most striking and interesting facts and discoveries of science." Telepathy was said to be a special interest. The affinity of its subject matter with Christian Science was obvious and the journal attracted advertisements by Mrs. U.N. Gestefeld ("Teacher and Practitioner of Metaphysics") and several students of Mary Baker Eddy's, as well as advertisements for S.C. Gould's Notes and Queries, the revived Journal du Magn├ętisme, and Caroline B. Winslow's Alpha. Crabtree 1117.
