In an article entitled, "Everyday Questions," in a recent issue of the Duluth News Tribune, a clergyman intimates that Christian Scientists endeavor to "suppress unfriendly criticism," and he adds that "all who claim to have the truth should be willing to let the light play on it." Christian Scientists are indeed willing "to let the light play" on their religious faith; they ask only that it be "light," rather than incorrect and misleading statements. Judged by that test there is much in the gentleman's contribution needing correction.

The inquiry, to which our critic's article purports to be in answer, affords him but a bad start; for in a backhanded way it speaks in terms of disrespect of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, of whom the late Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross, said in 1908, "Mrs. Eddy should have the respect, admiration, and love of the whole nation, for she is its greatest woman," and further, that she regarded Mrs. Eddy as "the one person, regardless of sex, living to-day, who has done the greatest good for her fellow-creatures." Mrs. Eddy lived to be eightynine years of age.

"What manner of love"!
