Signs of the Times

[From an Address of Former Governor McCall of Massachusetts, as Quoted in The Herald, Boston, Massachusetts]

In order that we may have great men, we must have great women, and it would be a very lopsided race if it could only make note of the names of one half of it. I think a new era is coming in. I think we are going to recognize more and more the things that have been done by women in the world, and we are here to-day upon this spot to do honor to a great woman. We have many men who have statues reared to them in front of our state houses, and the real benefit of those men to the world in some cases has been somewhat equivocal. They have made speeches, they have held political offices, but it is rare that you will find a man who has contributed so much and who has set in motion such a vital force as Mary Baker Eddy did when she wrote her book. I think that there never was a time in the history of the world when the teachings that she has set forth were more needed than they are to-day. We must have a reinforcement of the spiritual forces in order to counteract the materialism that seems to have taken place in mankind.
