The Idaho Republican

The article in the Republican entitled "Fine Scientist" calls forth the following comment:

Is it not, indeed, a strange law that makes a man a criminal if his child dies of diphtheria under Christian Science treatment, but would hold him guiltless if the child dies of the same disease under the care of a physician? It would seem that it would be necessary before arriving at a verdict of guilty in such a case to determine beyond question of a doubt that an absolutely sure cure for diphtheria was available by employing a physician. Yet to assume the possibility of such a decision is ridiculous in the extreme, for it is a well-known fact that deaths from this disease in large numbers have occurred in the past and are still occurring under medical treatment.
