Ithaca (N. Y.) Journal

That the Christian Science church is supplying a need that has existed from the beginning of world is proved by its marvelous grwoth in the last decade. Statistics collected for the six years previous to and ending with 1906 show that during that period the number of its churches increased from 221 to 638 and its membership from 8,724 to 85,717—a record that is duplicated by no other religious organization in the world. In 1906 the seating capacity of its churches was 81,823. This is surely a wonderful record and it speaks eloquently for the character of those who have embraced its teachings and their devotion to its principles.

The progress of the Christian Science church has been steady, silent, and resistless. Starting from the humblest of beginnings, with only a woman as its protagonist, reviled by the unthinking and opposed by those who did not even take the time to investigate its teachings at first hand, it has come to occupy a commanding position in the religious world.
