At the outset of his discourse on Christian Science, a report of which appeared in a recent issue, the Rev. Mr.—assumed an attitude of fairness in being "glad for every bit of good which Christian Science is doing in the world," but subsequent remarks disclosed some misconceptions of the subject. While its adherents are deeply grateful for the growth of Christian Science, which has already extended to all parts of the globe, they are in no way engaged in competition with evangelical churches as to numbers or otherwise. That which really concerns Christian Scientists most is well expressed by Mrs. Eddy in her Message to The Mother Church for 1902 (p. 2): "To live and let live, without clamor for distinction or recognition; to wait on divine Love; to write truth first on the tablet of one's own heart,—this is the sanity and perfection of living, and my human ideal."
After advising against entrusting consumptives to the "tender mercies of Christian Science," our critic says: "Abundance of fresh air, nutritious food, rest, a cheerful mind, and an unfaltering faith in God, are curing consumptives by the thousands." From that statement the uninformed public might infer that the remedy mentioned was proving the needed boon to suffering humanity; but what says a tuberculosis expert quoted in a recent issue under the caption, "White Plague Battle Failure, Says Expert"? Dr. Julius Rosenberg, specialist in tuberculosis, quotes statistics in the current issue of the New York Medical Journal to show that the campaign against that disease has made no substantial headway in the last twenty-five years, and adds, "Surely there is no cause here for felicitation," and warns physicians that "it is high time for them to recognize conditions as they are; that the mortality from tuberculosis is about the same, with no prospect of improvement."
