MISCELLANY

The following originally published in the Concord, N. H., papers, has been republished in nearly all the newspapers of this country, great and small.

Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has just completed the examination of a class of about seventy of the active workers in Christian Science Mind Healing, to confer on them the degrees of the Massachusetts Metaphysical College as healers and teachers of this system of medicine, whose only crowned head is divine sovereignty, whose only priest is the spiritualized man, says the Concord Evening Monitor. Most of those present were the students of her students. Nearly all of them had had several years' experience and marked success as healers. Their present fields of labor are as follows: Riverside, Cal.; Salt Lake City, Utah; Denver, Col.; Memphis, Tenn.; Atlanta, Ga.; Minneapolis, Minn.; Houston, Tex.; Philadelphia, Du Bois, and Scranton, Pa.; Fort Howard, Wis.; Omaha, Neb.; Cleveland, O.; Des Moines, Ia.; Orange, N. J.; Chicago, Ill.; New York City, Poughkeepsie, Jamestown, Saratoga Springs, and Lansingburg, N. Y.; Boston, Cambridge, Beverly, and Revere, Mass.; Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa, Canada; London, England; and Edinburgh, Scotland. There were in this class clergymen, M. D.'s, and members of the bench, members of the bar, and one of our cleverest editors. Judge Ewing of the Superior Court of Chicago arrived too late to be present at the closing lesson, but he and Mrs. Ewing visited Mrs. Eddy at Pleasant View. It now appears that Mr. Harold Frederic of London, England, who is said to have died because of Christian Science treatment, was under the care of an M. D., but inasmuch as he was not recovering under that practice, but growing worse, he decided to try Christian Science. He did not, however, give this system a fair trial, for his friends gave him no peace until they got him again under the drill of materia medica. Query: Whose failure was it? And should not the M. D. instead of the Christian Scientist be indicted for manslaughter?
