Whatever may have been said in opposition to the teachings of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, by authorities in other religious denominations, it must be admitted that her followers are the cheeriest lot of optimists, as a whole, there are in the world today. They look upon the bright side of everything, and they see and know no evil. There is no room in them or among them for the man or woman who thinks evil. For that, if for nothing else, the Founder of The Mother Church should be and will be called blessed. It isn't a bad sort of a religion that, which makes people look on the bright side always, and forever and continuously instils the doctrine of love.

There is something more than ordinary in a life that by example and teaching has remade many chronic grumblers and fretful invalids into bright, active, and helpful men and women. There is something in a life which, in the face of a constant storm of controversy, such as has raged about Mrs. Eddy, can bring to it growing thousands of devotees of all classes, each with sincere belief in the truth of Christian Science. There is some wonderful force behind a life that can cause the building of hundreds of magnificent places for worship.
