9When patients are under material medical treatment, it is advisable in most cases that Scientists do not treat them, or interfere with materia medica. If the patient

12is in peril, and you save him or alleviate his sufferings, although the medical attendant and friends have no faith in your method, it is humane, and not unchristian,

15to do him all the good you can; but your good will gen- erally "be evil spoken of." The hazard of casting "pearls before swine" caused our Master to refuse help to some
