Fresno (Cal.) Mirror

In a recent issue the editor seems to be laboring under the mistaken opinion that there is a sense of rivalry between the Christian Scientists and the physicians, for he states that the doctors are busier than ever, "in spite of the activity of Christian Scientists;" he also says, "Something is wrong somewhere; we wonder where." One might suggest that possibly his apprehension of the situation is at fault, for the Christian Scientists have no quarrel with the physicians; rather do they admire the noble efforts of the better class in behalf of mankind in trying to find a surer remedy for the different ills to which flesh is heir.

Many liberal and broad-minded physicians have even advised patients to try Christian Science. In one of these cases, which came under the observation of the writer, the doctor said frankly: "No medicine can reach your case, and if Christian Science can cure you I will rejoice with you," which he did later, when the patient was healed. Many prefer drugs, but after these material remedies have failed they may turn to the great Physician, "who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases," and be healed. The Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, teaches how God's word heals the sick today, as it did nineteen hundred years ago.
