Not Words but Works
According to the Chicago Record-Herald it is estimated that the Christian Scientists in that city have increased fully twenty per cent in numbers during 1903, and we believe that this would be a conservative estimate of the increase in the country at large, certainly there has not been a period of greater activity in the progress of the Cause, nor a time when the public has manifested greater interest. Uniformly large audiences have listened to the lecturers, many churches have been compelled to seek larger quarters, and what is still more important, the sick have been healed and sinners have been reformed in greater numbers than ever before. It is to this healing work that the attention of the world has been drawn, and it is to this work that we must look for still greater results in spreading the gospel of holiness and health.
What this increase in numbers means will be better understood when viewed in the light of the following extracts from a testimony which appeared in last week's issue of the Sentinel. The attitude of this man was such that argument would have failed to reach him, yet he was amenable to indisputable evidence. Christian Scientists are Christian Scientists not because of what some one has said, but because they have been convinced by facts within their own range of observation. The following is the first paragraph of the testimony referred to,—
