[Written Especially for Young People]

"Oh, those articles are too childish for me, I never read them!" exclaimed a young man whose attention had been called to an article written especially for young people which had appeared in the Christian Science Sentinel that week. "I often find much help in those written especially for children," replied his companion, and then went on to explain that the very simplicity of Christian Science teaching and its application to the minutiae of daily affairs was its strong appeal for him.

One does not ignore the simplest facts of mathematics, even though one has known them for years; and when we use these facts in our daily activities, we must be accurate in their application or serious results may follow. A classic illustration is that of the college student who, in working out a difficult problem in mathematics, began his work with the statement that "five times naught is five." Although he checked and rechecked the long and intricate calculations, he failed to detect the false statement in the very beginning of his work. Obviously, the entire solution was incorrect because of this initial mistake.
