The Gazette

In a recent issue, under the caption "How to Keep Well," by Dr. —, advice was given that "ill-balanced, self-centered, morbid people" needed mental therapeutics, and that they could get it from studying "Key to the Scriptures." Beyond doubt this is a reference to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the text-book of Christian Science.

The inference that Christian Science is of value to "illbalanced, self-centered, morbid people," is a reference which might be interpreted in several ways. If the medical critic who wrote the article for The Gazette is really sincere in the expression that Christian Science is of assistance to people of unbalanced minds, he is conceding more than materia medica has been inclined to grant in the past. On the other hand, if his statement is intended to convey the inference that Christian Science is available only for nervous and mental difficulties and for people on the verge of insanity, he is very much mistaken. Christian Science has proved its healing value, not only in nervous and mental difficulties, but for all functional and organic diseases. In fact, there is practically no disease known to the medical profession which has not been healed through the prayers of Christian Scientists.
