The confirmation of Mrs. Eddy's will by the New Hampshire...

Portland (Ore.) Oregonian

The confirmation of Mrs. Eddy's will by the New Hampshire supreme court places the sum of two million dollars at the disposal of the Christian Science Church in Boston. The court bases its decree on the distinction between a gift to a church and a charitable trust. It appears that, if the bequest had been a gift to a church it would have been void. As a charitable trust it stands good in law. The distinction is a fine one, but in this instance it happens to work for good. the Christian Scientists know how to make excellent use of the funds which are at their disposal and of any others which they may happen to receive. Their work is, broadly speaking, for the general welfare of the world. It does not agree precisely with the plans and notions of some others, but that is of small consequence. Happily, doing good is capable of many variations. It is an employment sufficiently flexible to suit all sorts of tastes. The taste of the Christian Scientists is one of the most useful and fertile there is.
