Trenton (Neb.) Register

It has always seemed to me to be unfair to begin a discussion of any subject by discussing something not related to it, without regard either to antithesis or similarity. For instance, why should an advocate of vertical writing begin an argument in its favor by discussing cuneiform characters, leaving the inference that there is some similarity between slant writing and the primitive writings of the Persians?

Christian Science bears no more relationship to mesmerism or spiritualism than Methodist does to cannibalism, and an attack on the Methodist church, if any one cared to make it, should not be prefaced by a sketch of the decline of cannibalism, coupled with a suggestion that Wesley built on its ruins. The facts as to the origin and growth of Christian Science are too well known to be the occasion of any dispute. The world has accorded to Mrs. Eddy the rightful claim to be its Discoverer and Founder. Her wealth is not a "bone of contention," but is being used in the hands of trustees to promote peace on earth, "good will toward men," in accordance with the provisions of her will. There was litigation during her lifetime, but it was brought by interests opposed to Christian Science, who used that means to try to break it down and enrich themselves.
