It can unquestionably be assumed that one reason for the prominence given to a news item in your issue of recent date relative to a woman who had died without medical attendance, was the fact that in the same issue so many people were recorded as having done the same thing with medical attendance.

However, it can fairly accurately be stated that the majority of the members of the medical profession do not take kindly to comparisons invited by the questionable zeal of a few of its members. Christian Scientists know that "great respect is due the motives and philanthropy of the higher class of physicians," to use the words of Mary Baker Eddy, to be found on page 151 of her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures;" and this class of physician reciprocates this respect when observing the undisputed healing results of Christian Science treatment. Without giving figures to overemphasize a fact, statistics show a much larger percentage of recoveries under Christian Science treatment than under medical treatment, even when spiritual healing is tried only as a last resort, after material means have failed. It might be considerate to remind a few of the medical profession of the fragile type of their own houses, and to leave stones where gravitation has safely deposited them.
