the Christian Science student is endeavoring to escape from the bondage of a mortal environment which seems to envelop him, how the word "chiseling" instantly announces to him his way to freedom! No longer does he conceive his seeming material life to be like uncarved marble awaiting the stroke of a supernatural power in order that beauty, perfection, and the consciousness of real life may be expressed; rather does he perceive his own duty and his ability to express his true selfhood, which has always coexisted with God.
on the promise that "like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him," we can have no misgivings concerning our loving Father's ability and willingness to hear and answer the cry of genuine repentance.
Henry R. Colborne, Committee on Publication for New South Wales, Australia,
It is a matter of regret to Christian Scientists that such a distinguished churchman and prelate should indulge in such an unfair and unprovoked attack on them and their religion as is reported in your issue of recent date.
emphatic statement of the necessity for Christian Scientists to change from a material to a spiritual basis of thought is found in the exposition on anatomy which appears on page 462 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.
of mankind is more or less concerned about claiming its own; indeed, men have been largely educated to believe that they could be sure of possessing what really belonged to them only as they claimed it.

Only those who have lived for years in a home where sickness and want seemed to be ever present, and health and the necessities of life ever absent, can realize what a wonderful experience it is to be lifted out of such discordant conditions into health, happiness, and an understanding of ever present divine Love.
With a deep sense of gratitude to our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and to the God of love this Science reveals, I offer this testimony of its healing power.
peace—the fruit of knowing Thee as All,As Life divine, which never dies,As Truth, which frees from mortal lies,As Love, sublime, which satisfiesAnd lifts us high above the world of strife,Which stills our sorrow, pain, despair,Eliminates all anxious care,And guides our feet from evil's snare;For peace, the fruit of Truth and Love and Life,O Thou almighty One above,Accept our gratitude and love!
