The Kingship of Self-Control, and The Majesty of Calmness, are two very fine books by William George Jordan. The various chapters are brief, but weighty with thought, and are eminently practical, but the practicality is of that pure and noble kind which inspires while it helps. The writer evidently speaks from experience, and therefore with authority, and the books are so excellent, and their moral tone is so high, that we have included them in our list of books for sale, and they may now be obtained direct from our office.
