"EXTRA GOOD RISKS."

The question of whether or not Christian Science heals, is being steadily answered in the affirmative, even in the minds of those who have not yet accepted its teachings, and as an instance of this we quote the following editorial note from a recent issue of the well-known Burlington (Ia.) Hawkeye:—

A great life insurance company has instructed its agents by circular: "Christian Scientists are as a class extra good risks, and should be solicited." Now that must mean something. It is founded upon some vital principle. A peaceful mind, faith, hope, and contentment—these are regarded as conducive to health and longevity. When a great corporation, whose purpose is to make money, accepts that statement as a truth and adjusts its financial interests accordingly, the hard-headed, practical man cannot very well ignore the fact. The conclusion is, not that every one should become a Christian Scientist in his religious faith, but that the qualities and habits which produce such beneficent results ought to be fostered. Industry, sobriety, generous impulses, faith in God and man, service for others—these are all attributes of happiness and long life.
