especially the child; her face was beaming with hap-

piness and smiles. This is just one little instance of the

good that comes from reading Science and Health.

T. W. H.


This is, perhaps, the most remarkable book on health,

in some respects, which has appeared in this country.

The author evidently discards physiology, hygiene, mes-

merism, magnetism, and every form of medication, bath-

ing, dieting, etc., — all go by the board; no medicine,

manipulation, or external applications are permitted;

everything is done through the mind. Applied to cer-

tain conditions, this method has great value: even the

reading of the author's book has cured hopeless cases.

The author claims that her methods are those used by

Christ and his apostles, and she has established a church

and school to propagate them. — Herald of Health, N. Y.

The Christian Scientists claim that the power of heal-

ing is not lost, and have supported that claim by induc-

ing cures astonishingly like those quoted from the New

Testament. And even more good they hope to achieve,

as this power which they possess is better understood

and the new light gains strength in the world. Experi-

ence has taught us that the nearer we approach to the

source of a report of miraculous power, the smaller does

the wonder grow. In the instance of the Christian Sci-

entists, the result has been rather the reverse; if third

parties have related a remarkable circumstance, the person

of whom the fact was alleged has been found to make

the assertion still stronger. — Boston Sunday Globe

"Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by

Mary Baker G. Eddy, President of the Massachusetts

Metaphysical College, is a remarkable publication,

claiming to elucidate the influence of mentality over

matter. Mrs. Eddy announces herself as the discoverer

of this metaphysical Science, and receives students, to

whom she imparts so much of her metaphysics as their

minds are capable of receiving. The volumes are a

vigorous protest against the materialism of our modern

scientists, Darwin, Huxley, Tyndall, etc. Her Science

of Mind was first self-applied: having been ill and treated

by doctors of the various schools without benefit, she

discovered the grand Principle of all healing to be God,

or Mind. Relying on this Principle alone, she regained

her health, and for the last sixteen years has taught

this theory to others, and has healed the sick in all cases
