Christian Science Literature

WE publish herewith an extract from the August, 1901, number of the Tidings, published by the Woman's Baptist Home Mission, headquarters at 2411 Indiana Ave., Chicago, Ill., which will be found to be self-explanatory:—

"In May, and again in July, subscribers in one of our large cities have complained that Christian Science literature has come to then folded in Tidings. In the first case, there were three leaflets, and in the latter a folder advertising Mrs. Eddy's book and other matter. However and wherever these tracts get into our paper, it is after it leaves our headquarters, and we will be grateful to any one who will help us discover the guilty party. The offence is contemptible and criminal, and it is no credit to Christian Scientists that they should seek to promulgate their doctrines by such sneaking and dishonest methods. We warn the perpetrator that we shall spare no pains to discover the culprit, and we admonish him or her that the offence is one subject to no light penalty. We also ask that all subscribers who have found such literature tucked into their papers, will let us know. As yet, as far as we have information, there has been trouble only in one city."

In explanation of this article we also publish the following letter from Mr. Archibald McLellan of Chicago, a member of the Publication Committee:—
