Blackpool (England) Herald

A correspondent in a recent issue had noticed a remarkable feature of journalism, in its attitude respecting First Church of Christ, Scientist, which, he says, is being boomed in Blackpool just now. If this correspondent, who wrote over the name of "Curious," had been curious enough, he would not have needed to ask why the Manchester Courier reports a Christian Science lecture verbatim, or why the Blackpool papers report the proceedings of the recent Thanksgiving service, where testimonies relating to the healing of disease through Christian Science were given. No, he would have found that what is booming Christian Science is the fact that through its loving ministrations people in increasing numbers are finding healing from their diseases, freedom from the bondage of sin, happiness instead of sorrow, joy for mourning.

It is because Christian Science is proving itself practical, and is fulfilling the Bible promises, that the newspapers which are awake are giving as the most interesting "news," that which people of all grades are looking for. One would have thought that such a "curious" correspondent would have found that the report of the Christian Science lecture was given verbatim, not only in the Manchester Courier but in other important Manchester papers, and that even the Manchester Guardian did not refrain from giving its report.
