One is not obliged to be a Christian Scientist to see the narrowness and injustice of the action of the legislators who voted to prohibit Christian Science practitioners from charging for their services. If medicine were a settled science it would be different; but, with practitioners of a number and a variety of schools in the field, it is not for any one to say who people shall or shall not consult; or to seek to gain this end by trying through legislation to starve and drive out of business those whose views or methods are tabooed by the old medical authorities. History discloses that even the schools which are now represented among those who have resorted to legislation to shut out such as are of the new way. were in turn subjected to similar opposition before they had favor and influence. The Scientists will, no doubt, ultimately win out.—Ashtabula (O.) Beacon-Record.
