Charging that the chairman and other members of the committee on the judiciary were "receiving gifts, franks, employment, and compensation of great and pecuniary value" from railroads, to the extent of disqualifying them to pass upon the bill to prohibit congressmen and judges from receiving such gifts from railroads or other corporations, Representative Randell of Texas brought before the House a privileged resolution to remove the measure reffered to from the committee on judiciary and to have it immediately reported back to the House.
Christian Scientists have been so bountifully blessed, physically, mentally, morally, and spiritually, that their gratitude finds spontaneous expression in giving, and, since gratitude is an enduring virtue, their giving does not cease.
In humble gratitude for a new understanding of God as only good, and for many personal healings and other blessings, I add this statement of what even a slight understanding of Christian Science has accomplished, in the hope that it may help to establish the reign of peace and harmony in some other home.
In the book of Isaiah there appears a prophecy of the mission and message of the Readers in the Christian Science churches, and of the Scriptural selections, the Lesson-Sermon, and the hymns of devout meditation and scientific declaration, which unite to voice that glorious message to mankind: "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!" This proclamation of the divine supremacy, or "the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter".
The beginner in Christian Science is always deeply impressed by the new sense which he has gained of the apostle's declaration that "God is love;" and even though he does not at once grasp its full import, there is to the one bowed down by trouble great comfort and assurance in these few and simple words.
