Rockford (Ill.) Republic

The greater part of a Christian Scientist's practice is with those who have spent the most of their lives, and generally all their cash, in treating with the drug system, and have finally, and as a last resort, turned to Christian Science, with perhaps a faint hope that something might be done to relieve their suffering.

Christian Science is doing much towards the uplifting of humanity which is known only to the beneficiaries and their immediate friends. This regenerating work includes the healing of sickness, intemperance in all its phases, dishonesty, hatred, malice, and their attendant evils; and the method employed, which is Christian Science practice, is scientific. Christian Scientists cannot truthfully be charged with neglect. No class of practitioners takes into consideration the conditions, mental or otherwise, which surround the patient, as do the Christian Scientists, and none work with more vigilance to relieve their patients from suffering and restore them to health; and the reason for their success is to be found in their perfect basis.

The application, however, is not always made with understanding, and therein lies the possibility of failure. All we ask is that we shall be judged by results as a whole.
