The Law and the Christian Scientist

The Advocate and News

The following, under the above title, is from the pen of the Hon. C. B. Hoffman, Enterprise, Kansas.

Our representatives at Topeka are addressing themselves seriously, earnestly, enthusiastically to the work of suppressing illicit doctoring. Hereafter, the Christian Scientist, should he be found practicing his uncanny cult, without due license, which of course he cannot get, is to be fined, mulct, decapitated.

Did the regular M. D.'s instigate this bill ? Perish the thought ! They are too busy attending to their patients, who when last heard from were as sick as usual. No, its our representatives, who have discovered the dire dangers threatening us from Christian Scientists, mental healers and bone rubbers. A bas the villain or the villainess who would cure my headache by giving me a kindly thought instead of a box of Anti-Kamnia ! People of Kansas alarum ! We are betrayed ! We are about to be cured against our will by folks who are not regular curers, who cannot tell the difference between a sessimoid bone and the rouget !
