Rev. T. A. Goodwin Indorses Christian Science

OUR purpose in publishing the following excerpts is not only to record the testimony of Rev. Mr. Goodwin but to call attention to the fact that it is not the policy of such high class newspapers as those from which we quote to bar from their pages whatever tends to place Christian Science in a favorable light before the public. There was a time when Christian Science was misunderstood by newspaper men as well as by almost every one else in the world, and then but little appeared in print, except in our own publications, which did not hold Christian Science up to ridicule and misrepresentation. Happily those days have gone by and it is no longer necessary for an editor to apologize to his readers for having mentioned Christian Science unless to deride it. While we believe that the News and Star were never in the class referred to, we feel sure that they will not object to our use of these paragraphs for the purpose of pointing to the general progress of public opinion regarding Christian Science which is so truthfully reflected in the changed attitude of the press. — EDS.

The venerable Dr. Thomas A. Goodwin sprang a surprise on the Methodist ministers' meeting this morning. He was asked to speak in the absence of the person who had been chosen, and though it was announced as he arose that his subject would be Christian Science, evidently no one was prepared for his treatment of it.
