Wherever women's interests are seriously considered it...

Glasgow (Scot.) News

Wherever women's interests are seriously considered it will be found that religion and good works have not been neglected, and naturally this is as much the case at the Scottish History Exhibition as it is elsewhere. One of the pleasantest stalls, in artistic fawn and green, lightly furnished and cool and restful, a graceful if revolutionary tribute to the attraction of mere "matter," belongs to the Christian Scientists,—whose Founder, we have to remember, was a woman. The new religion of Mrs. Eddy is now of world-wide importance, and is constantly attracting believers, and it has a very fair quantity of literature of its own, which need not be bought, but may be borrowed by intending inquirers. The "Life of Mary Baker Eddy" is prominent at the stall, and pamphlets in many languages address themselves to people of every tongue. Like other sects, the Scientists have their religious library, and a neat row of volumes responds to the devotionalism of the adherents of the Christian Science tenets. The books displayed are "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "Miscellaneous Writings, 1883-1896," "Christian Healing," "Unity of Good," the Hymnal, and the Bible. Whatever may be one's own personal attitude to the church which pins its faith to these books, it cannot be denied that it is a factor of the day and a curious tribute to the forcefulness of one woman's personality.
