The passing of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy removes one of the world's great women, no matter whether one agreed with her teachings or not. She filled her place in the world and filled it well. Her teachings, no matter what else they may maintain, worked for purity, honesty, and temporal concord, as well as the ever betterment of self. She held undoubted power over those who followed her faith, but mature study of conditions leads an outsider to believe it was the power of love rather than the power of fear. With a wonderful equanimity she withstood the bitterest assaults, and was an embodiment of the Biblical adage that "a soft answer turneth away wrath."
