Sunday there passed from the life of this world—not from its cares, for she had risen above them all—the greatest of all women—Mary Baker Eddy, the Founder of Christian Science. From the present day back to where disappear in the mists of tradition the initial mileposts of Aryan civilization, paralleling the achievement records of the world's super men, the pages of history are resplendent with the glory of earth's great women. Viewed from a broad perspective, however, they stand a sisterhood of similarity—all save one. Like her there was none.
Excepting her alone, the great women of history gained heritage to supremacy through lavish bestowals of nature in prodigal mood. Great beauty had they, or great wit, or over-dominant will and mentality equal to masculinity. None of these had she. Not hers the magnificence of Sheba's queen, the splendor of Semiramis, the passion of Cleopatra, the militant spirit of Maria Theresa, the brutality of Catherine, the grace of Marie Antoinette or the wit of Madam de Stael. Nothing was hers save the gentle force of love. Yet through it she founded a spiritual empire that shall live after her, shall grow after her, and whose not slaved, but freed, subjects shall revere her memory forever.
