[Telegraph, New London, Conn.]

It is not our province to dwell upon the significance to Christian Scientists of the passing of their beloved Leader. Suffice it to say that while her departure is felt in sorrow and regret, her followers have no fear that the loss of her physical presence is to deprive them of the fruits of her life-work, nor will there be any attempt or tendency upon their part to deify her human personality, understanding her teaching to forever condemn idolatry. As a religious leader Mrs. Eddy is unique. History affords no parallel. The world accords to her the distinction of having been the most remarkable woman of her time, and for the most part is content that the truth or falsity of her teaching shall be tested by time and by its fruits rather than by the rules of logic or of orthodoxy.
