"It doesn't matter a bit"

[Of Special Interest to Youth]

Beyond the humor of the situations and the nonsensical verses in Lewis Carroll's immortal classic for children there are lessons of deep appeal which do not always appear to us on first reading. A student of Christian Science realized this when she was reading "Alice in Wonderland" to a group of young people. One story in particular caught her interest because of its implication in the light of Christian Science.

It was at the trial of the Knave of Hearts, and Alice was summoned to give her evidence. When asked what she knew "about this business," she replied that she knew "nothing whatever." The jury was busy writing down her testimony on their slates when the King, bewildered as usual by events around him, shouted to the jury, "That's very important."
