STORY OF MRS. MARY EDDY.
Christian Science Leader Comes of
English nnd Scotch Ancestry.
The Growth of Christian Science. Hero
and Abroad." Is tho title of an article In
the Era Magazine which Is found to at
tract widespread attention.
Or the founder he writes:
"Mrs. Eddy began to win di.iclpUs In 1C7,
the year following her discovery of meta
physical healing. In 1S75 she published her
Science and Hralth, with Key to the Scrip
tures.' which has now passed through more
than 3J editions of l.om copies each. In 1573
she founded the Hrst Christian Science
Church, and in 1SS1 she opened a college for
the teaching of Christian Science, called the
Massachusetts Metaphysical College, where
she personally taught over .0 students
who passed through this college.
"In Mrs. Eddy's) personal history there Is
nothing mysterious or concealed. She has:
never made any miraculous claims. 1er
life has been simple: her girlhood, nave for
Its eager religious questioning, not unusual.
She was bom In a little village in New
Hampshire, sheltered by the hills that rose
to tli soft blue skies and sentineled bv oak
and pine and hemlock. Here the fiaker
homestead stood, and here Mary Taker's
girlhood davs were spent. To this charm
ing New Hampshire village, now greatly
changed, come small parties of Christian
Scitntists ilurln; the summer months, eager
to tread the paths familiar to the beloved
founder of their faith. These visits are a
remarkable evidence of the love In vvhlch
Mrs. Eddy Is held, and bespeak the power
cf her Influence over to raany hearts.
"The old red schoolhouse which she at
tended has disappeared, but at Concord. N.
H . still rises the spire of the Old North
Church, In which she was the youngest
communicant, and where she attended tub
"Sho comes of that mixed English and
Scotch Puritan ancestry which formed so
much of the liest of New England's slock.
Some of her forefathers were men tf mark
In war and statesmanship. General Cox of
Revolutionary fame, was a relative of her
father, and among ethers of her ancestors
were Sir John Macnell. a Scottish Knight,
and General John Macnell. who fought at
I.undy's Lane. Mary Hakor's father was a
man of sturdy piety and strict probity. Of
Mrs. Eddy's mother the little that has been
recorded leaves tho impression of one of
those New England mothers whose strict
notions as to propriety wer tempered by an
Innate sweetness of temperament. From
rer mother the young girl derived her ar
dent love for scripture study and from her
brother. Hon. Albert Baker, nice ongress
man from New Hampshire, her krowledge
of Hebrew. Greek and Latin. Charity and
benevolence ruld the household. Mr?. Eddv
sneaks of her childhood's homo as 'one with
tiie open hand, where the needy were ever
welcome. From such a family and such a
home, full of the beautiful simplicity of the
rural life of early New England, ime the
only woman In history who has ever ftund

Tha record of the champion life saver of
America. It will be seen, has not been ac
quired by luck or chance.
