18and false practice of the Science of treating disease through Mind. The silent address of a mental malpractitioner can only be portrayed in these words of the apostle,

21"whisperers," and "the poison of asps is under their tongue."

Some of the mere puppets of the hour are playing

24only for money, and at a fearful stake. Others, from malice and envy, are working out the destinies of the damned. But while the best, perverted, on the mortal

27plane may become the worst, let us not forget that the Lord reigns, and that this earth shall some time rejoice in His supreme rule, — that the tired watchmen on the

21for the white-winged charity that heals and saves; we are tired of theoretic husks, — as tired as was the prodi- gal son of the carobs which he shared with the swine,

24to whom he fed that wholesome but unattractive food. Like him, we would find our Father's house again — the perfect and eternal Principle of man. We thirst

27for inspiring wine from the vine which our Father tends. We crave the privilege of saying to the sick, when their
