It is a weakness inherent in all criticism of Christian Science that it is purely destructive. The world is asked to believe that the movement is little more than a new society craze, which, like "slumming," will soon be extinct. Unfortunately for these critics the facts are against them. The growth of the Christian Science church has resembled that of an oak rather than that of a mushroom. For forty years it has progressed silently, steadily, irresistibly. To those who have accepted its teachings it has brought a sense of power to resist sin. of mastery over sickness, and of that peace of God which passeth all understanding, that enables them to regard criticism, even in its most virulent or least intelligible aspect, in the spirit which drew from Paul the declaration, "None of these things move me."

It is the aim of Christian Science to make men physically and morally better by showing them how they may make practical the Christ command. "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
