The gentleman declares, "To this superstition countless deaths and untold suffering are already to be charged, because it prevented the early resort to modern scientific treatment." In reply it may be said that only a comparatively small number of persons have died under Christian Science treatment, and most of those who have met with such an experience had already exhausted their hope in material remedies. If medical practice has failed to cure the diseases of such persons in their incipiency, Christian Scientists should not be blamed for failing to destroy them in their more advanced and formidable stages. If we should employ our critic's logic, we might declare that those who depend upon medical treatment are "misguided" though "estimable people," and that to medical practice "countless deaths and untold suffering are already to be charged," for thousands die daily who have medical treatment exclusively from the incipiency of their trouble to the day of their death. In order to estimate the amount of good and the comparative failure of Christian Science practice, its healings as well as its failures must be taken into consideration. There are thousands of troubles which are destroyed in their incipiency by Christian Science treatment which possibly would have developed into more serious disorders and perhaps even death under medical treatment.
