Mrs. S. H. Mims Talks on Man's
Spiiitual Supremacy Through
CHRISTIAN SCIENCE AUSPICES
Learned Address Heard by Larjje
AMdlence at Illinois
livery seat in the Illinois theatre
was occupied last evening by people
who had come front many quarters to
listen to Mrs. Sue Harper ICI ims O. S.
D., of Atlanta, (ia., member of the
Christian Science board of Lecture

Scientists, of Boston, Mass. The ad

Mrs. Minis is a woman of charming
personality. Her diction was pure and
dmph her delivery impressive, and
she held the attention of her vast au
dience in a remarkable manner. She
is easily the strongest and most inter
esting exponent of the Christian Sci
ence faith to which Knck Island peo
ple hae had the privilege ot listening.
Some of the main points in Mrs. Mini's
!The aspiration to know and under
stand, the 'ways of (Iod to men' has in
spired the long search and questioning
f the centuries. The attempt to re
concile the 'mvstery rf evil with the
bashs of an all-wise, omniscient, om
nipotent and benevolent Creator, has
been the stimulus of vast systems
of speculative thought throughout the
history of man. This theoretical mind
has been ever the same since the days,
and before, when Socrates talked of
the immortality of the soul, and Plato
dreamed, seemingly, Utopian dreams
of a true republic, while the Alexan
drian schools teemed with magnificent
"Nineteen hundred years hgo. in the
midst of the tumultous thought of
that day, there appeared a simple, ma
jestic figure, Jesus of Nazareth. He
spake as never man spoke, and He
proved the beneficent ways of (iod to
man, proved this omnipotent, infinite
God to be forever the destroyer of evil
and all its varied manifestations. It
was as he said, (lod is not a remote
abstraction, nor a far-away ruler and
.mighty king, but a living presence.
ternal truth, a divine environment, in
which we live and move and have our
being; the one source from whence
'cometh every good and perfect gift.
Ood. Mlnrt mod ftuhMtaacn.
"(iod is the mind, intelligence, sui)
stanee that includes all. that feeds,
clothes., sustains and governs man. re
deeming him from the materialistic
law of sin and death, by the demon
stration of the actual spiritual law of
life and harmony. He said, even the
birds and lilies teach you lessons of
the ineffable love and tenderness" of
this father-mother (iod; for the same
intelligence that enables a growing
vine to rend a rock, in its travail of ex
pression, is the same power that en
abled .Testis to rend the rock-ribbed
tomb, in the travail of his expression
of His indestructible, immortal indi
vidual. Today, in answer to sore
human need. Christian Science ap
pears reiterating the words of Jesus,
and is, at least in part, imitating Him
and demonstrating the (iod-power to
heal, redeem and bless humanity. It
recalls and is establishing the practi
cal'christianity of Jesus, as he walked
humbly with the multitude, healing
every manner of disease, raising the
dead, spiritualizing and uplifting men.
It is fulfilling the mission of the Com
forter. ' It takes His life and words,
and works and shows them to us, ex
plaining His mo-flu s operandi. Have
you ever thought how little is said of
Jesus' wcrks, yet He said. 'The works
that I do, ye shall do.' He taught how
(iod, divine mind, is the only medicine,
the only physician, revealing to man
His Gxl-given dominion as the reflec
tion of his Maker. This supremacy
is not through the dominion of the hu
man will, but through the enlighten
ment, spiritual understanding of the
realities of being wherein infinite life,
harmony, immortal bliss, omniscient,
omnipotent good is the destroyer of
infinite corporal illusions, which limit

fleet GodV power is the kejrnote to
the religion of the future. Jesus illus
trated to the lullest extent in His
life and work as our way-shower, and
as the demonstrator of this law of
infinite good, life and love..- This law
and proof of spiritual dominion runs
like a fine ' golden vhain throughout
the entire scriptures, linking all its
eras of development in one perfect de
sign, culminating in Christ Jesus."
"The watch-word of modern pro
gress is science; humanity is looking
to science as the emancipator of the
race. In the realm of materialism
these laws are changing and fleeting
as clouds in a summer sky. -
"The , comforter Christian Science,
illuminating the scriptures, in a flood
of light, shows is that this science has
been, and is from the beginning the
word of (Jed, reconciling man to spir
itual law.; It shows Jesus to have been
at the same time the most transcend
ental. nd the most practical of men;
in him the ideal became the real, and
the acme of philosophic . aspiration
was reached. He brought the king'
dom of (iod to human consciousness
and the 'Christ manifest in the flesh;'
a harmonious phenomenon here and
now, through subjugation of the flesh
Liw of Spirit. '
"In this spiritual realm, only the law
of spirit must be acknowledged, which
demonstrates life and immortality.
He that is in Christ is a new creature,
old things are passed away. In this
pure realm our conversation is in
heaven.' The new tongue of spirit
which "heals is our vehicle of expres
sion. Our basic thoughts must be the
spiritual fact that man is, ever was,
and: must he spiritual, not material,
that he never fell from the hands of
omnipotent love. Holding on to these
divine renllties in thought, meditation
and 'talking truth one -to another,'
we shall become natural to spirit, to
the divine nature, to the immortal
law of harmony and perfection. The
sinless man, the offspring of spirit,
heir with Christ, of power, glory, and
dominion,- will become the real to us.
Sin, discord and death will vanish
from the spiritual consciousness.
They will be put off as unnatural, rc
pellant. untrue, and we will see the
'new heaven and the new earth,
wherein dwelleth righteousness, here
and now, for (Sod is all-in-all to this
spiritualized consciousness. Many in
tellrgcnt physicians who recognize the
healing of Christian Science say their
objection is to the claim of it being
supernatural. Now this is just what
Christian Science absolutely disclaims.
Paid once said. 'Why should it seem
a thing unereclitable with you that
God should raise the dead? That (Sod
should heal the sick seems divinely
n ifural to Christian Scientists. To the
understanding of God, the only cause,
the tender, loing father, mother. God,
nothing else could be natural. It is
this truth of being that heals, not
human will nor influence.
"The healing work of the Christian
Science being the work of, breaking
the, fetters of materialistic law, its
philanthrophy is as broad as the
heaens, and deep as the ocean, it has
no limits, even the 'creature itself is
to be freed from the bondage of cor
ruption. A little child redeemed from
the aw of suffering, that redemption
reaches in some degree the child on
the (ianges and indeed all children.
What is it that makes a material law?
Mrs. Eddy tells us that the concen
sus of human opinions makes a ma
ternal law; if physicians and others
believe in contagious diseases that
makes a law and we have its results
in contagion. I?nt let a strong, united
christian thought declare and hold to
it steadfastly that (iods law never or
dained sin or suffering, but that
there is an ever-operative 'law of the
spirit of life in Christ Jesus that hath
made us free from the law of sin and
death.' '(Rom. viii.) and humanity will
gradually be redeemed from all evil
and the sin that brings discord and
death. It is for this that Christian
Science is striving.
In Fall Sympathy.
"Christian Science is. in full and
ready sympathy with every advance
ment toward purity, benevolence, law
and order. It teaches that the ten
commandments and the sermon on the
mount furnish the solution of every
human problem. Its alpha and omega,
is love,, that God is love, infinite and
ever present, that all sects, nations
and races are embraced in that mind
that is love. That there is one father,
mother, (iod one family, the whole
earth that man attains his own per
fection and harmony in proportion to
his own reflection in thoughts and
actions toward all men, his active
principle that is love. This love re
flected on earth will reveal the king
dom of God here as in heaven for it
'seeketh not his own' but another's
good, 'it bcareth all things, hopeth all
things, it never faileth.' It thus be
comes the savior of the world from
all evil, social, economical, political,
physical, mental. Because this un
selfish love was enthroned in the
heart of Jesus, he did his mighty
works This love is as universal as
the sunlight, and tender as the dew
on small grass. In the light of his
Imp we see all men the image and
likeness of God. heir and priest of an
immortal heritage and divine minis

New Baggage Handler Will End

Loaded Track Taken on and Pat Off
by a Pneumatic
The Michigan Central is experiment
ing with a new baggage car, which
may end the days of the baggage
smasher, reduce the time lost by pas
senger trains at stations, facilitate
the handling of express, and diminish
the wear on the rolling stock and
track. The car, which is called the
"Safety Baggage Handler," was op
erated for more than two months
between Saginaw,. Bay City and De
troit, with remarkable results.
The car is fitted with a pneumatic
elevator. A padded truck, costing $9,
against $."0, the cost of the average
truck now in use, is kept in the car.
The baggage is loaded on this, and the
truck is run on a steel platform which,
when unfolded, extends about 3 feet
outside of the car. This platform is
raised and lowered by means of 70
pounds of air pressure taken from the
engine and stored in a cylinder under
neath the car. The air is controlled
by a lever by the side of the car door
and operates the elevator by means
of steel cables.
Carries Larre Londa.
The truck will carry between nine
and twelve huge trunks, whose com
bined weight is nearly 1,700 pounds.
Similar trucks are used in the stations,
and are loaded ready to be run on the
elevator the moment the loaded
trucks from the car is run from the
elevator to the platform.
On a trip from Detroit to Chicago a
record was made at Vassar, Mich..
where two trucks, containing a total
of 25 pieces of baggage were exchang
ed in o() seconds. At several stations
several minutes were saved from the
usual time consumed in handling the
baggage. During the two months'
trial the road has not received u sin

The car itself is also novel in con
struction, as its under frame of steel
is such as to make it practically im
possible to telescope the car by col
lision. Two 24-inch and one -0-inch
eye beam constitute the center strinirs
supporting 0-inch eye beams as side
sills. The car is f7 feet long, weighs
80.000 pounds, has 60.000 pounds ca
pacity, and can be built as cheaply as
the ordinary wooden constructed car.

One of the most remarkable cases
of a cold, deep-seated on the lungs,
causing pneumonia, is that of Mrs.
Gertrude E. Fenner, Marion, Ind..
who was entirely cured by the use of
One Minute ('ou"di Cure. She says:
The coughing and straining so weak
ened me that I ran flown in weight
from 148 to 92 pounds. I tried a num
ber of remedies to no avail until I
used One Minute Cough Cure. Four

Only Makes a Bad Matter Won.
Perhaps you have never thought of
it, but the fact must be apparent to
everyone that constipation is caused
by a lack of water in the system, and
the use of drastic cathartics like the
old-fashioned pills only makes a bad
matter worse. Chamberlain's Stom
ach and Liver Tablets are much more
mild and gentle in their effect, and
when the proper dose is taken their
action is so natural that one can
hardly realize it is the effect of a med
icine. Try a 25-cent bottle of them.

NEW SOCIETY FOB MED
FROM FfiATERNAL ARMY
When the officers of the Fraternal
Army rf America nitrgi that society
into 'the L yal Americans there was
a groat hue and cry among the mem
bers and they rose in revolt. A suit
was started against the hensl oilu-crs
to declare the compact they had
made void. - ,-
Pending the result of this case the
members have gathered in IVoria and
led by members there formed a new
association. Tiipy prsscd resolutions
declaring that the officers hud acted
in a treasonable manner in merging
the society with another withcut con
sent of the members.
They made a general denunciation
of the men engaged in the buying and
selling of fraternal orders, and sound
ed a warning note to all of the frater
nal orders against these mergers.
They recommended the appointment
of a law committee of five members,
to prosecute the suit now pending
tgninst the directors and officers of
the Fraternal Army, to compel tin re
turn of the moneys merged with the
order, and recommended that all pol
icies be kept in force with a view to
determining the standing of the mem
bers. I'VIKv. in- this a new order to be
known as the Fraternal (Ymrades of
America was ca!I:d into existence. It
is pi a! n that the laws of the new o ri
der will make it impossible for the
officers and directors to merge the
same with any oilier order without
the o nsent of the membership. The
