FIRM SHOWS FAITH
.MESA, Sept. 22. The V. R. Stewart
Realty company is showing its faith
in the future of Mesa ry the lease of
one of the most prominent business
'corners in the town. Mr.-Stewart has
secured the old quarters of the Salt
Kiver Valley bank, located on the
northwest corner of the intersection
of Main and McDonald streets, and is
furnishing it with a handsome equip
ment of office furniture. There has
been an active demand for realty this
year and the steadily increasing price
of land seems rather to have aug
mented the demand. Any number of
inquiries are being received by the
Mesa Commercial club as to investment
in the valley. Mr. Stewart, who has
proven himself an optimist during his
three years' stay here, believes that
by taking this commodious and promi
nent corner he will be in position to
handle more conveniently and expedi
tiously the promised increase of busi
ness which he believes will come with
the cold weather.

The Christian Science Monitor
' The fact that Christian Science Is
lessening the sum total of sin, sickness
and disaster contains great reassur
ance for the human race. The human
herat is turning to its teaching for
help, and finding a perfect remedy and
a clear answer to all its questions.
Christian Science is, therefore, the
greatest thing in the world and the noly
hope of humanity. After long centuries
of preparation the seed that was sowed
by Christ Jesus is growing up ,and
nineteen hundred and sixteen is begin
ning to reap the harvest. This age, be
cause there is more readiness to .re
ceive, than at the former periods of the
world's history, becomes the recipient
of the greatest blessing of all time
the exact knowledge of God. "Science
and Health with Key to -the Scrip
tures," the text-book of Christian Sci
ence, contains the full statement of this
knowledge, and those who run may
read and learn about it. Mrs. Eddy,
its author, made a statement identical,
substantially with that of the Founder
of Christianity, when she wrote on
page 110, "No human pen nor tongue
taught me the Science contained in this
book, Science and Health; and neither
tongue nor pen can overthrow it."
Christ Jesus said, "Heaven and earth
shaH pass away, but my words shall
not pass away."
The centuries that intervened be
tween Jesus first statement of Chris
tianity, and Mrs. Eddys rediscovery of
the truth, through her understanding
of his statement, have been centuries
of gradual development. The truth
proclaimed by Jesus has been at work,
creating througho its inevitable vital
ity, a better, and so more receptive, at
titude in humankind. Realizing, as it
can be realized todav, owing to the
teaching of Christian Science, the vast
ness of the revelation Jesus gave, and
looking hack over the interval between
his day and ours, it might seem as iA
his words had practically been lost, so
utterly without proof were they for so
long a period, but that would be a mis
take, because those words were the ex
pression of the eternal ever-acting re
ality. That fact made Jesus' words
immortal, and the knowledge which
urged him to speak was. as it were,
put into the mass of human thought,
there to act as a leaven. That leaven
has been always at work. He spoke to
a densely material age. but his clear,
penetrating and spiritual vision gauged

sun so ne could say with certainty that
his words could not p.iss away. Power,
hp' apprehended as Spirit, and mate
riality as powerlessness. and so he
knew that the material senses could
not forever hide the truth.
When Christian Science is under
stood, even in a measure, it reveals the
magnitude of Christ Jesus' revelation
to the world; then it is plainly dis
cerned that the action of his piercing
understanding of Spirit was, to the
carnal mind, like the sowing of the
seed which must grow to the carnal
mind's ultimate destruction. Indeed,
the living truth is the seed within it
self, of which the growth is inevitable.
Truth and error cannot dwell together,
so the truth has been gradually under
mining the opposition which the carnal
mind chedishes towards God. divine
Principle, and today witnesses the full
fledged idea of Christian healing, co
ins wonders among men. Wonders,
that is, to the material senses which
Mr. DeWitt has been engaged as
warehouseman at . the Haber-Jones
Mercantile establishment and is al
ready at work.
Mr. and Mis. W. R. Lacy of Gilbert
spent Wednesday evening in town with
look upon evil as a stubborn fact that
nothing but material means can affect.
The teaching which reveals the infinite
presence and power of God and clari
fies the revelation with practical proofs
by healing evil in thousands of forms,
has indisputably come to stay. Chris
tian Science, as explaned in Science
and Health, is the logical sequent of
the truth given by Jesus, and its pres
ence and works are the fulfillment of
his promise to mankind that the Christ
would be with it always, even unto
the end of the world. The inevitable
nature of the action of Truth, and the
true inward meaning of Jesus' utter
ances, coming, in this way, to lights
show that the present works accom
plished by Christian Science, great and
reassuring as they are, are only the
first infantile steps taken in the un
derstanding of infinite Science.
Because Christian Science reveals
the truth, the spread of it, on healing
wings, is as assured as were the wordV
og Jesus, and its works of healing are
accomplished on as sure a basis. Every
case that is healed, he it one of sin oif
sickness, is healed because health and
not sickness is true, uprightness and
not sin is true. Health and uprightness
are part of eternal Truth which Sci
ence, or true knowledge, reveals. A
human being is healed through Chris
tian Science of some complaint; be
cause man ns made in God's likeness,
and because sickness belongs to a false
sense of man as material born, anil
dying in the flesh, it can be destroyed.
It can be seen here how far reach
ing is the vital character of the truth
about man. Today men are being
healed, redeemed and comforted be
cause they have cought a glimpse of
man's relation to Cod. and are accept
ing the fundamental fact of the truth
of revelation as stated in Genesis, that
"God created man in his own image,
in the image of God created he him. '
Thus by going back to the very begin
ning we find the statement of truth
regarding man and God. Then centuries
after, the Bible shows Jesus the Christ
healing the sick and overcoming every
materinu condition, including death,
through man's oneness with the Fa
ther; and now we have Christian ScH
ence proclaiming God as infinite divine
Principle, and man as his perfect like
ness, and once again. behold the signs
are following! This Science also shows
the correlative truth, that as man is
God's likeness, he is not the likeness
of the carnal mind, and that only fale

ing life to a wrong concept of ma '
The discovery of the lie concerning

without this uncovering mortals would
continue to believe that material man
is man. a conclusion which creates a
deadlock, where all the sickness, sen
suality and sin of the material uni
verse seem to be real. Te vital truth,
the truth that can never he overthrown,
and which the Bible and Science and
Health proclaim, is the fact that God
is infinite. On that the whole of Chris-.'
tian Science is based. Mrs. Eddy says

There are some things about the or

country that seem utterly inexplicable.
For instance, after 9 o'clock at night
in any public place in London one may
not buy a packet of cigarettes. If a
group of men sitting at a table ex
haust their supply a waiter will wheel
over to them a little cart laden with
cigarrette packages, and each one In
the party may buy a single cigarette.
No amount of pleading will convince
the attendant that he might just as
well sell a package at a time.
There certainly isn't any ultimate

which has put into the hands of the

which frequently are exercised In most
illogical ways. The proprietors of the
