Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, the organizer of the Christian Science church, is dead, or—as the adherents of that faith more beautifully say—has passed from among us. In leaving this world, she leaves it the richer because of her life and her teachings.

We are not a member of that church, but for it we have words of commendation, just as we have for all branches of the church and all organizations, under whatever title they are living, that seek to alleviate pain and sorrow, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, and thus make this old world better. It is our pleasure to know many members of the Christian Science church, and it is also a great pleasure to say that—judged by the standards by which the world judges Christians—every one of them is leading a more worthy life than was led before accepting that belief. This might have been true had they united with any other church—we are not seeking an argument, simply stating a fact.
