Corvallis (Ore.) Gazette Times

On reading your interesting editorial entitled "Fumigation," which makes mention of some peculiar phases of the hopeless tangle of contradictory theories advanced by practitioners of the medical profession, I am impelled to express my thanks for your editorial. There is one statement, however, which is misleading and should not be allowed to pass uncorrected. The statement I refer to is as follows: "Mary Baker Eddy, Bernard McFadden, and other apostles of New Thought have been less convincing in exposing the fallacies of many accepted theories than have honest physicians and scientists themselves."

This statement, while made no doubt unwittingly, is calculated to class Christian Science along with New Thought, when as a matter of fact New Thought is the very opposite of Christian Science. Christian Science claims and is proving itself to be a restoration of primitive Christianity as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus. The study of Christian Science gives to its followers an understanding of God which enables them to heal the sick and cast out devils, evils, as Jesus taught us to do, without the use of the human will or of mental suggestions in any form.
