[Phoenix (Ariz.) Democrat.]

Probably no person during this century was subjected to a greater degree of criticism than was this patient, silent woman. While we are not wholly familiar with the teachings of Mrs. Eddy, yet we realize that she has accomplished a great work in her lifetime; and today probably not another individual in all this great country will be more sincerely mourned.

The charge that Mrs. Eddy was rich—that her gifts were utilized for the accumulation of wealth—is not well taken. Her wealth came from a grateful people; came from a grand army of men and women who loved their teacher for the benefits that came to them through her teachings. During the last forty years Mrs. Eddy has probably brought more sunshine into the homes of the poor—instilled more hope into the sinking, tired hearts of ailing humanity—than any one person in the last century. Her life was devoted to the uplifting of humanity; and, be her teachings as they may, hundreds of thousands of intelligent men and women will today drop a tear in kind and loving remembrance.
