A BEAM OF LIGHT

In "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" appears this benediction by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 187): "May the divine light of Christian Science that lighteth every enlightened thought illumine your faith and understanding, exclude all darkness or doubt, and signal the perfect path wherein to walk, the perfect Principle whereby to demonstrate the perfect man and the perfect law of God."

One student of Christian Science learned something of the meaning of these words through an unusual experience. She had visited a certain spot on the Pacific Coast, where a small building houses what has been described as an adaptation of the periscope. Light, picked up from the outside by a mirror through a small porthole in the cupola, is carried down through a lens, and the outdoor scene—in miniature but in vivid, natural colors—is reflected on the white surface of a revolvable table below. It is an exquisite, living panorama.
