It is characteristic of Christian Scientists that they are good-natured and not easily given to resentment. They also appreciate and enjoy the qualities of good humor and wit, and the little pleasantries of life, including a good, clean joke.

But they fail to see that their religion should bear the brunt of such jokes as imply the imagining of a thing to be true when it is not true. For instance, a well-known writer to your columns the other day wrote the recipe for an egg facial as a beauty aid. The writer, after recommending the use of this lotion, suggests that the persons adopting this beauty aid must then know themselves to be beautiful, adding that "this is where Christian Science steps in." Why should there be such irrelevance?
