Not illustrated. 1899 Excerpt: ...'The principle' is laid down in Holy Scripture, when Hezekiah broke to pieces the brazen serpent, and at the Reformation it was carried into execution. Things innocent in themselves may be perverted to purposes of superstition, and in the mediaeval Church were so perverted; hence the necessity for their abolition.

The Guilds, which are so useful in keeping young women in the right way, contain 300.
