In many respects a remarkable woman was Mrs. Eddy

Denver (Col.) Republican

In many respects a remarkable woman was Mrs. Eddy. She had tenacity of purpose, a genius for organization, and a belief in herself. She had a message to deliver, and that message has had a profound influence on the thought of today in this country. In her lifetime the Founder or revealer of this peculiarly woman's religion or dogma saw it grow to a numerical standard greater than any of this country's religious outgrowths, larger in membership and adherents than the Society of Friends or Quaker faith, with churches and practitioners in every civilized land. And it is not a militant religion; it wages no wars; it appeals to the average middle class more than to the extremist. It requires individual thought and study; to a considerable degree it is an individualistic religion.

Christian Science has brought a high standard in newspaper publication. It has demonstrated at least that there is a respectable minority abroad that relishes decent journalism. All in all, Mrs. Eddy has been a power for good. She inculcated gentleness in every-day life; she strove to abolish the "fear thought."
