Not long since two gentlemen entered a railway coach

Cedar Rapids (Ia.) Evening Gazette

Not long since two gentlemen entered a railway coach. One of them was denouncing Christian Science in a heated manner. By and by his friend left the train, and a Christian Scientist who had overheard the conversation politely occupied the vacant seat and began to speak of some of the benefits which he had observed in connection with Christian Science treatment. The critic at once changed his tone and began to refer to benefits which he too had observed. This incident serves to suggest that which fosters and perpetuates the apparently unabating interest in the Christian Science movement. Whether or not we are ready to endorse Christian Science, it cannot be denied that its propagation is followed by good results; that Christian Scientists are an unusually healthy, happy people, and that they are richly endowed with that rare accomplishment, brotherly kindness.—Cedar Rapids (Ia.)
