, Sji about "mortal mind." There Is no
1 such thing as mortal mind. Mind is
Hag, immortal; mind is from Infinity. Mind
IH never dies. It is tissue that dies, or
H changes form, because nothing ever
,W really dies in the sense It is generally
jflf . understood. A man is said to die, yet
wBm if not planted too deep in the soil, two
Hi , years later he buds forth again in the
'fl shape of cabbages or other plant life,
SB J is absorbed by another man and thus
H lives again in a living organization,
flfl Mind Is tho intangible substance that
WKt may dominate matter in certain cases.
H The tissues may bo tired, or feel ill,
' SBi ut this condition may bo ovcrcomo by
Hj action of tho mind, provided tho afore-
jHUj said condition is not too serious. A
HH person may bo able to dissipate tho
SRj first attack of grlppo, by the simple
MR force of Intelligent reason, combined
BH with action, but to say that a man
HH acutely afflicted with tho virus of
HE smallpox can bid it dissipate and arise
HJ and walk is to assert something that is
flHE an impossibility, while to assert that
flBK tho mind can dominate the germs of
JB consumption to the extent that to bid
'fllj them depart is to bo obeyed, is folly.
For every effect there is a cause.
JB The causes of most diseases aro found
flJH in the conditions surrounding tho af-
flicted. Filth in tho tenement house
pHR districts of the great cities is tho cause
IHB of high mortality. Impure milk carries
HHj off thousands of infants every year;
BB impure ico claims its victims by tho
HH hundreds. Neglect of personal clean
UH lincss causes death in numberless In
HB stances. Impure air is prolific of cat
flJH astropho. Now unless conditions aro
HE improved, all tho Christian Science,
HHJ nil tho mind work and all tho medicine
JIB administered will do no good.
1 ' BHBI There are many thousands of pco-
' HWL I'lo who believe that Mrs. Eddy is more
Z or less inspired. To them this statc-
HB ment that thcro are no sucli things as
. JUH diseaso gorms, will bo a cold fact.
''iHHJ Hcnco tho writer is sorry sho made
HHJ it, becauso it is possible to demon-
'"BH strata tho oxistenco of disenso germs
H any day in tho week, right hero in Salt
" HJHj Lako City, or in any other city in tho
,' II union. It is just as easy to look at a
?BR disease germ as it is to go down to
IV tho Jordan and look at a mosquito, and
wo prcsumo Mrs. Eddy docs not deny
1 their cxistenco, as a picturo of tho
S house sho lives in joveals the presence
Ji.i of wire netting over tho windows and
! j ' doors. Tho teaching that tells us that
'-' j ; there is no such thing as diseaso is per
'j i , ; niclous and ought to bo suppressed, for
t t ' wo know there has been disenso over
'a'k since tho foundation of tho world, and
J'- will bo until it arrives at tnat condi-,-jt'
tion when animal Ufa can no longer
j ' exist upon Its surface Diseaso not
' only affects man, but animal creation.
"t K , Fishes are subject to it, tho quadrupeds
'j - aro afflicted with it. Elephants have
toothncho and so do horses. Cows
hnvo tuberculosis and other ailments.
Disease prevails everywhere, and each
has its peculiar cause, and most of
them their especial remedies. Among
tho followers of Mrs. Eddy aro many
fathers and mothers of little children.
Statements such as this one mean
nothing but increased mortality among
infnnts, for denying tho existence of
tho germ of scarlet fever is equivalent
to denying the diseaso Itself. If there
is no cause there is no effect, henco
tho child Is not sick and needs no
treatment. Whllo granting that the
exercise of tho mind over tho matter
It directly controls may prevent cer
tain diseases, if taken in time, the
writer maintains that no such Influence
can be exerted over tho physical tis
sues of n child by the mind of a par
ent, and tho undeveloped brain of tho
infant is not prepared for any such
metaphysical action as would bo re
quired to save itsolf from unhappy re
sults. Mrs Eddy has another think
coming. If sho is a sensible woman,
who loves humanity, she will reverse
herself; if sho Is a fanatic, sho will
stick to It, but oh, what a lot of ser
ious consequences will follow.
Tho city council committee on
streets has decided to report against
paving tho sidewalks on North State
to Capitol Hill and First North street
from Main to State streets. The ctiy
owns somo property there, and tho
real reason for tho ndverso report is
that tho city docs not want to Incur
its proportion of tho exponso of pav
ing. More than sufficient of the other
property owners aro In favor of mak
ing tho improvement, and it Is a ques
tion whether under thoso circum
scanccs tho council has a light to re
fuse to order tho work done. Cap
itol Hill is becoming a private resi
dence district. Tho state will some
day not very far off build the capitol
there. All Improvements should be
encouraged, In that section especially,
when the property owners demand
them and aro willing to pay for

LITTLE RADIUM ON EARTH.
Not One-Tenth of an Ounce in the
Sir William Ramsey, tho noted
scientist, declares that there Is not
one-tenth of an ounce of radium in
tho wholo world," says tho Now York
Times. If you can imagine getting
that amount of radium together It
would supply more energy than 250
tons of dynamite.
Few persons who talk about radium
and its components realize tho great
scarcity of tho raw material for yield
ing radium or tho exceedingly minuto
particles used in experiments that
havo astounded tho world. It is Im
possible to say where tho future sup
ply of tho raw material is to como
from. "I believe," says Sir William,
"that In America carnotltto looks
promising as tho basis for it. Cleav

looked upon as a favorable source of
