MISCELLANIES

Mr. Editor, Dear Sir:—I suppose we shall have to admit the facts of Christian Science. Their claims are quite another thing. No doubt they are fully persuaded that all their claims can be proved, and this lively faith amounts with them to absolute knowledge, though not so with others. There has been a very prevalent disposition to deny their alleged cures of disease, but any candid inquirer may satisfy himself that cures, and most remarkable cures, are done by them, not seldom, but frequently, cures which have seemed impossible by other and more orthodox means. Well, if they can cure one disease it may be that they can cure two or twenty, and if so they may successfully compete with the regular schools which only cure a proportion and not all they undertake.

Their treasure, admitting that they have one, is in earthen vessels, and so may be mixed with some objectionable things, which is no reason for rejecting the treasure itself.
