A clergyman, preaching his farewell service in a Brisbane church, is reported to have referred to Christian Science in a manner that calls for some attention. He said that Christian Science made great claims, but it could not cure deafness, arrest decay in teeth, or cure defective eyesight, and Christian Science had never mended a broken leg.

That Christian Science does heal all manner of disease is well established by indisputable evidence. The clergyman need not have gone beyond the confines of Brisbane to have found many people from whom he could have obtained convincing proof that Christian Science has healed not only the discordant conditions mentioned, but many other ills "that flesh is heir to."

Many outside the movement have recognized the healing efficacy of Christian Science, and the following remarks of the Rev. N. C. Goss, a Sydney clergyman, reported in the Sydney Sun of June last, are interesting: "There is in our midst a church known as Christian Science, which makes physical healing, through spiritual power, one of the main features of its work. It has been subjected to much criticism. But such criticism does not alter the fact that Christian Science is growing rapidly, or that many thousands of Christian Scientists have had remarkable experiences in the matter of healing. Perhaps even more significant is the fact that homes and lives of Christian Scientists radiate health and happiness, and visitors to such places are vividly conscious of this."
