The witty paragrapher of the Boston Herald has paid his respects to The Christian Science Monitor in a characteristic and hearty way which pleases us, notwithstanding the rather gruesome ending of his words of welcome to our newspaper. We quote as follows:

Good luck to the coming Christian Science newspaper, Starting a daily paper is an enterprise that usually tests the courage and resources of the bravest and most resourceful souls. The graveyards are full of their remains.

Nevertheless we have no doubt that the Monitor will be as successful in avoiding the journalistic graveyard as Christian Scientists themselves have been in avoiding the "really truly" graveyards which yawned for so many of them in times past, and the reason for our confidence is our assurance that the same divine Principle which has rescued so many sick and suffering men and women from the grave, many be depended upon to nourish and sustain whatever expresses good and eschews evil. There are thousands upon thousands of Christian Scientists on earth to-day who were condemned to death or invalidism by their physicians, only to be afterward restored to health by Christian Science Surely the Monitor is not overconfident when its counts upon the support of these people, whose great desire to help their fellow-men as they have been helped naturally leads them to the support of every movement that stands for righteousness and truth.
