Any one attempting to touch upon any phase of the subject of Christian Science and its influence on the world to-day will find himself treading upon ground where many others have walked before; for the question is of vital and compelling interest, as we daily come in contact with its adherents and are forced to doff the hat of respect before the sweeping demonstrations of good over evil; of right, clean living over a false sense of pleasure in sin and its attendant miseries.

Macdonald says, "There is no poetry in that which is not true." The truth about anything is all there is to it anyway, but as Goethe states: "It nettles men that truth should be so simple." Fuerbach also adds a home thrust to the quota when he remarks: "The plainer truths are those precisely upon which men hit last of all." The only thing there is to know about Christian Science is the truth about it, and that certainly will not hurt anybody. Striving to find relief from the effects of sin in lifeless concoctions of mortal mind, instead of looking to the one Mind which rules the universe, is only to sink deeper in the mire of ignorance and to nip in the bud the flower of progress.

An unbiased perusal of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy's remarkable book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and the privilege of being an eye-witness and a receiver of the benefits conferred upon those who test its merits, has amply proven the efficacy of Christian Science treatment where, in nine cases out of ten, other remedial means have failed. This is convincing proof that the "power behind the throne" of scientific Christianity is God.
