"The R.P.A. Annual for 1918" is well up to the usual standard. Eden Philpotts contributes a lengthy and wonderfully fine poem entitled "The Rationalist.'i whose . . • . "golden torches first caught fire And gleamed for dawning conscious. ness, when life Stood up and lifted hands from mother earth, * To feel a foreglow of all coming ruth Quicken the heart and touch the wrinkled brow With thought of a new colour." Professor Gilbert Murray discdurses on "The Essence of Christianity," and makes his article a sort of critical answer to Mr. Weil's criticism of Professor Murray's Stoic Philosophy. Professor J. Bury (whose "History of Freedom of Thought" makes him beloved of the student) devotes an intensely readable contribution to "The Influence of Christianity on Roman Criminal Law." E. S. Hartland describes "Religion among the Indians of Guiana"; Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner writes on "Christianity v. Liberty"; Geo. Whale discusses "Theism and the War"; William Archer makes a case for "Humanity the Best Policy"; Joseph McCabe's subject is: "What Christianity has done for Russia"; Adam Gowans Whyte writes of "The Kirks of Christ and their Struggles for Survival"; and there are contributions dealing with "The World after the War," by Charles . Gorham; "American Sentiment, Conscience, and Religion," by S. K. Ratcliffe; and "Audacity and a New World," by Keighley Snowden.
