A Word in Favor of Christian Science

WE clip the following testimony for Christian Science from the editorial columns of The Evening Wisconsin.

Plunkett Greene, the baritone engaged for the second Pfister recital, is said to be a warm advocate of Christian Science. A story is told relating to his last visit to Milwaukee and his sympathy for the cause of the Science. It was at a supper given in his honor following his last concert here, at which a number of leading German gentlemen and their wives were present. Some one mentioned the absence of the wife of a prominent guest, upon which the latter said she had gone to a Christian Science meeting and expressed much wonder that the madam should have sacrificed a delightful evening so foolishly. The remarks of the guest created considerable merriment, when suddenly Mr. Greene said, with much warmth: "I never hear Christian Science mentioned that I do not feel called upon to speak in its defence. I was cured of a bad throat trouble through the treatment of Christian Science alone, and I want to say that my sympathies are entirely with the lady who is absent this evening—she did well to go to the meeting." The husband of the absent lady was completely squelched. "I never felt smaller than at that moment," he said afterward, "and I have never made fun of my wife's faith in the Science since. I liked Mr. Greene for his loyalty, and felt ashamed that I had dared to speak lightly of that which I did not at all understand."
