In an article dealing with the subject of mental suggestion which appeared in a recent issue of the Times-Signal, the implication was made that Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, taught and practiced the use of mental suggestion.

Although the reference to Mrs. Eddy was not an unfriendly one, it should be pointed out that Christian Science treatment is prayer. It illustrates the control of the divine Mind over the human, and so is the opposite of mental suggestion, hypnotism, mesmerism, animal magnetism, which are the exact opposite of Christian Science.

On page 180 of her book, "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," Mrs. Eddy writes: "Christian Science contains no element whatever of hypnotism or animal magnetism. It appeals alone to God, to the divine Principle, or Life, Truth, and Love, to whom all things are possible; and this Principle heals sin, sickness, disease, and death. Christian Science meets error with Truth, death with Life, hate with Love, and thus, and only thus, does it overcome evil and heal disease."
