Concord (N. H.) Monitor

The printed matter erroneously entitled "Christian Science Sentinel, Vol. 1, No. 1, London, 1916," which has been noticed in your columns, is not the first imitation of a genuine periodical which has been issued by the person responsible for this one. She is the lady who announced, three or four years ago, that she had discovered "The Unchangeable Law of the Conscious Cyclic Unfoldment of Life." Whatever this may have been, it was accompanied by what she designated "The Central Assembly of the Individual and Universal Church of Christian Science,"—an organization having barely enough members to fill its several offices,—and was followed, in 1914, by the first and only issue of what she called "The Central Sign," a document in the shape of a periodical.

Evidently these expedients did not accomplish the purpose of this lady and her associates. Thereupon she declared herself to be Mrs. Eddy's successor, took Mrs. Eddy's title, "Pastor Emeritus of The Mother Church," and began to make such use as she pleased of the names given by Mrs. Eddy to the church, the institutions, and the periodicals which the latter founded. It was expected, obviously, that acts of this sort would get the desired attention. Pursuing this course, the discoverer of "The Unchangeable Law of the Conscious Cyclic Unfoldment of Life" has sent out, within the last year, three different papers which closely counterfeited the appearance of the weekly, monthly, and quarterly periodicals issued by The Christian Science Publishing Society.
