Evening Index

In the passing of Mary Baker Eddy there was removed from earthly existence the most beloved woman in history. The good citizenship will applaud the efforts of any one who helps humanity to a more correct life, no matter through what channel of religion. Therefore it would seem but the insincere who would fail to say aught but good of this noble woman. She faced the world, with its harsh criticism and ridicule, alone, with only her God as a protection. For years she stood, with her faith unshaken by that which would have quailed the stoutest heart. First dozens, then hundreds, then thousands, then tens of thousands were appealed to by her religion and found relief from many worries of life, until today Christian Science reaches around the world and to its farthest corners.

In the beginning Mrs. Eddy said steadfastly, "God is my life;" her last earthly message was, "God is my life."
