The Winlock (Wash.) Live Wire

It is a sad commentary on the progress of avowed Christian sects that the barrenness of their efforts leads their ministers to occupy their time so largely in attacking other religious movements. Recently an evangelist holding services in your city went out of his proper domain to attack Christian Science; and what was worse, he repeated certain worn out falsehoods about Mrs. Eddy, whom all men who are unbiased by sectarian prejudice, recognize as a high minded woman and one of the noblest characters of the age.

Perhaps his criticism of the architecture of Christian Science churches is not worthy of notice, but if a building without spires is not in his mind a church, may it not be because he thinks of heaven as a locality "up there"? How unfounded the criticism is in truth may be seen by the fact that the top of the dome of The Mother Church in Boston is twenty-nine feet higher than that of the State House and one foot above that of Bunker Hill Monument.
