Evangelist—unwittingly paid a fine compliment to Christian Science in his reference to the followers of Mrs. Eddy, when in the sermon reported in a recent issue he pointed out that people are turning to Christian Science for real solace and comfort, after the things the world calls pleasure have lost their glamour and cease to interest. He did not put it just that way, but it is the exact fact of what he tried to make out as a passing fancy.

The history of the cause of Christian Science, covering approximately a half-century, may be said to be the combined experience of thousands upon thousands of those "really sensible people in other respects," as our brother termed them, who are learning the nothingness of the "carnal mind," material sense, and are turning to the somethingness of divine Mind," God. In the effort to "put off the old man with his deeds," and to "put on the new," no seeming vacuity or sence of loss is expressed, because Christian Science gives an understanding of the teachings of the Master that brings what Paul termed "the peace of God, which passeth all understanding."
