Williamsport (Pa.) Gazette

No one will dispute for a moment that the greatest need in the world to-day is for some such efficacious plan of moral and physical salvation as that which Christian Science offers. On every side we see great suffering and sorrow. Advocates of medicine have made noble efforts to alleviate this, but have they succeeded in lessening disease? Are not conditions in this respect as deplorable to-day as in the time of Jesus and the apostles? Is there not as great need of succor now as then?

It is upon this scene that Christian Science has made entrance, and with all the energy its followers can summon to their support they have called upon men and women to lift their eyes to higher things and seek in the contemplation of that which is spiritual and holy the much needed relief for the ills of mankind.

It is no new thing to find opposition to this message from among the clergy and the medical fraternity, although many of its advocates have arisen from among their ranks. From the very outset Christian Science has had to prove its worth every step of the way. Had it not been able to offer a reasonable return to all who sought its help, it would have long since fallen by its own inadequacy.
