Washington (D. C.) Post

Christian Science has made amazing strides in England since the charges brought against Mrs. Eddy last year and the recent suits against her and her trustees, according to Lady Muriel Gore-Browne. Discussing the subject, Lady Muriel said,—

"Those allegations against Mrs. Eddy have been a tremendous boom for Christian Science here in London. I can speak authoritatively for England, as I am an active member of Second Church here in London, and I have noticed the remarkable growth in interest in Science during the past six months among many persons who heretofore would not even discuss it or hear of it. Last November we gave our semi-annual lecture in Queen's Hall, which seats some three thousand people. The lecture held in April was in Albert Memorial Hall, which seats over fourteen thousand, and it was filled to the doors. Such interest and enthusiasm have been created in what we call society that plans are on foot to carry out a great demonstration for Mrs. Eddy. What form this sentiment will take I cannot yet say, but it will be quite remarkable. I have noticed the greatest change in the attitude of the people toward Science. I remember, when I first became interested in Science, it was a tabooed subject in society. They either feared it as something uncanny or they laughed and made fun of it. Now every one knows somewhat of Christian Science, and it is no longer the avoided subject of conversation. I feel, as we all do over here, that the affair, unfortunate as it may have seemed to some, has worked out for the very best good to the Cause."
