Misstatements Corrected

WE conceive a most important part of the work of the committee on newspapers, or the Publication Committee, to be the correction misstatements of fact in reference to cases of sickness, death, etc., which are charged to Christian Science, whereas, in truth, Christian Scientists had nothing whatever to do with them. We are glad to note that this is being effectually done through the medium of this committee. This work has the double effect of informing both Scientists and the outside public of the real facts, as well as the managers and editors of the newspapers themselves, and of bringing to the attention of such managers and editors the increasing necessity for observing care in the publication of rumors coming to them. Often these rumors are wholly unreliable and cannot be traced to any legitimate source. We know it is the purpose and desire of the better class of newspaper men to confine themselves as nearly as may be to facts, and to do injustice neither to Christian Scientists nor to others. For these reasons we are glad to see the vigilance and good judgment exercised by the members of our committee.

To show some of the work that has been accomplished, as well as for the information they contain, we herewith publish some of the corrections of misstatements which have recently been made.
