In a recent issue there appears a report of a lecture given by a professor containing a reference to Christian Science, classifying it with Couéism, new-thought, and the like, in "seeking to change the flow of the subconscious currents" of human mentality. The inclusion of Christian Science with what the professor calls the "schools of psychoanalysis" is erroneous, and I will thank you for the privilege of this correction.

The divine Mind, God, is the only real power recognized by Christian Science, the various phases of the fleshly or human mind, referred to by the lecturer, being dealt with as human beliefs. The teachings of Christian Science point the student away from what the Apostle Paul called "the carnal mind," which is "enmity against God," to that Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus." It will be seen, therefore, that by reason of their strict adherence to the First Commandment, implying obedience to the one God, the one Mind, the teachings of Christian Science cannot be included with those mentioned by the lecturer.
