The American Press

The kindly reception which is being accorded Christian Science by an ever-increasing number of American newspapers is one of the signs of the times. This patent fact is due to the displacement of misconception by an intelligent understanding of the aims, the methods, and the fruits of Christian Science. To be sure there are still instances where lack of information is evident, but even the unfair notices may be taken as the first step toward investigation and the possession of exact knowledge of our Cause. It goes without saying that the favorable attitude of the press has been brought about, very largely, by the wisdom of our Leader, whose lofty purpose, self-consecrated life, and loving labors are being appreciated by the fair-minded everywhere. Co-operating with our Leader in the enlightenment of the press there have been the earnest efforts of the local Scientists.

Their sincerity and good works commend them and their Cause to the thinking editors in American journalism. "By their fruits ye shall know them," and the Christian Scientists are ever ready to be judged by their fruits. Through wisdom and love the newspapers everywhere are being won to the side of justice and right. The Press is in position to be an efficient instrument for Truth; it is indeed a happy omen to see it so generally just and fair.
