To Editor Journal and Courier: In view of the attacks on Christian Science being, made by the Rev. Fran cis T. Brown, of the First Methodist church, from his pulpit, it would seem to h- ibout time for some of the Chrls- t.uu Scientists of this city and -hereabouts, to sit up and take notice. It seems strange that of all the leading religious sects of the day. Christian Science should be the one chosen for a. target for criticism, 'abuse and cheap ridicule; as particularly demonstrated in the case now under consideration. Why should a people diligently striv ing to live better, purer, holler lives and finding in their belief and manner of living comfort, satisfaction and a fuller, finer appreciation of the joys of life, both for themselves and othe-3, , why should thsy not be permitted to go on their chosvnwjy unmolested anu unhamperedl And why Is it that the aged leader of the rapidly spreading movement, cannot be left alone to con-. tlnue her Life work in peace? To do otherwise is certainly antag onistic to the teachings of the Bible, the foundation stone for all true relig ions. And the great aim of Christian Scientists is to live from day to day and from hour to hour, 'as nearly as 1 possioie, a real tjnristian me, as taugnt i oy jesus ennst ana as aenionstraxeu and the secrot' ot character, and it Is by h;s example here on earth. thia; main mraeie 0f human free- Can a peoplo thoroughly Imbued with I dom which MrsC Eddy's teaching de this Christ-like Idea, witn their relig- nles ..Will power," she says, "belongs ion with them habitually, not only on I to the 6enj,eg. and agn,n "Will power Sunday, but every day, literally all tha ls but an illusion of belief." This is time, do much harm in the world? pure Hinduism; It belongs to the Why not extend to them the ord nary j orient, and its hopebss dreams not to courtesies of life and meet them with the Occident, and its splendid aehieve- the liberal, Christian, tolerant spirit with which they meet others? Let them enjoy their religious belief, which, yields so, much that seems good and worth having to them and refrain fram attacking them and abusing them and, questioning J'heir smity, as does tile Rev, Mr. Brown when, in his first ser mon,, referring to Mrs. Eddy, he says: 1 "That her 'Science' wars with physi cal science ls unquestionably. true as a few specimen quotations from 'Science and Health' will show, but as to wh'ch Is the 'truth' and which the 'error' In the conflict no sane mind should long be in doubt." Let Mr. Brown make an effort, which would appear to 'be necessary, and re call to his mind tho euden rule. Let us quote It, to make sure: . "Do unto others as you would nave tnem to un to you." . Now, how' would the Rev. Mr. Brown like anyone, a Christian Scientist, for Instance, to get up and publicly assail his religious faith and honest ,convic tlons, make htm a laughing stock' for hn audience1; question his fanltyt and heap ridicule on the memory of John Wesley, 'and keep It up week aftr week,: with snappy, cheerful promises of "more to follow?" As the orator says, "We pause tor a- repiy. Of course there can be yellow pulpit- Ism as well as yellow journalism and one can conceive how a preacher might develop an Itching for notoriety, or be spurred to an unusual, unexpected and hitherto undeveloped energy by a seem ing necessity to stem a tide of deser tion from one church for the purpose of forming a connection with some other. But the pulpit and press of New Ha ven have been, as a rule, perfectly fair and Just concerning; Christian Science as well as otner matters 01 general Interest, the columns of the New Ha ven newspapers being ral ways open for the discussion of topics from the var ious points of view. Concerning the arguments against Christian Science so far advanced by the Rev. Mr. Brown, little can be said in a limited space or limited time, be cause he defends his position by quot ing fragmentary sentences and phrases from the Christian Science text book, separating them, in nviny instances, from the original context, thereby al tering their real meaning. To Illustrate let us here quite from Mr. Brown's sec ond sermon, or lecture. Mr. Brown said: When the lecture Is finished you will be very glad." Now, Mr, Brown said that, but It ls not to be presumed that he meant that his audience would welcome the closa of his remarks as a relief and with shouts of joy. By reading the words fls used by him In his lecture, taken in connection with otheri words, one rinds that the Intended mcAIng was that In the opinion of Mr. Brown, his hearers, at the close of his remarks, would ex- erience, not a sense Ot relief, but . a eelinor of eladness. ocutvUse they had profited thereby. To go a stop farther In illustration: In his second lecture on Christian Sci ence. Mr. Brown stated thut he hnd been told thnt followers of Mrs. Eddy could be distinguished from others by the fact that they were sober. An ap parently doubtful compliment. Now, Mr. Brown said that, but he said It in this way: "Last Sunday evening, I am told, that the followers of Mrs. Eddv In the audi ence could be distinguished from others by the fact that when every one else inuRliea tney were soDer. Elsewhere In a lecture, Mr. Brown said "It would bo easy to show why no ronl humorist could be a Christian Sci entist." If Mr. Brown founded that theory that certain Christian Scientists In hl audience failed to laugh while Hsteninc to his lecture, his idea Of humor must be a peculiar one. It ls. In fact, interesting to sneculata as to whether or not Mr. Brown hlm- seld would laugh heartily upon being told from the pulpit that he was, in his sacred religious belief, tne victim of "an Intellectual blunder so great as to be grotesue," or, would he hold his sides and go Into paroxysms of mirth when told that because he clune to the faith which was to him of all things In the universe the dearest and the holiest, he was a promising candidate for a lunatic asylumf Ferhapa ne wouiu. Doubtless, the Christian Scientists referred to by Mr. Brown were not possessed of a sense of numor Keen enough to grasn tne rorce and point of his humor, as put forth from the pulpit, but 11 tney didn t smue tnen, tney may now, 11 iney nupyen iu reau these linos. But after all Is said and done there Is small change for an argument be tween the Hov. Mr. Brown ana, Chris tian Scientists, for he frankly says: "Neither the truth nor the error of so-called 'Christian Science' is new. The truth ls our common heritage In the Gospel of Jesus Christ." Nothing could more distinctly de scribe the position of the Christian Sci entist. RAMBLER. Our third answer to the question of the evening's topic is: Because Mrs. Eddy's teaching as to the nature of God, the nature of Christ, the nature of man, the nature of sin, and the na ture of salvation, Is in vital particu lars unscriptural, unchristian and un true. Such a presentation of the heart of Christian truth for example as was given this morning by that noble sim ple Christian man, the Bishop of Lon don, is utterly incompatible with fun damental teachings in Mrs. Eddy's writings. Her "divine" Principle" is and ever has been in entire "Ignor ance" of human suffering and sin; the God and Father of the Bishop's evangel and of the historic Christian faith suffers for us, with us because of our sin, and by that suffering, love shamss and wooes us from our sin, In concluding to-night I shall have time to touch upon one phase only of our third reply to the query under dis cussion, and that but briefly. Mrs. Eddy's teachings as to the nature of al and. untrue. "Man." according to I Mrs. Eddy," Is the infinite Idea of in finite spirit," But God is more than "mind" and man is more than an "idea" of the infinite thinker. God is a-creator and man is a created per sonality. Here is the deepest mys tery of all thought how the sovereign God could create finite wills endowed with real freedom. Tennyson, bend ing over the cradle of his new born babe, muses In aWe upon "The main-miracle, that thou are thoii, ; 1 ' With power on thine own act and on the world," It Is this "maln-mlracle" of a self- determining human willa genuine free(jorn and moral responsibility the essence, of personality,'' wv,ir,j. i. ments. Tho power of choice is man's most sacred and aWeful endowment; it belongs not td the "senses" but to tho very citadel of the spirit. It is a mystery, but deny It and you have greater mysteries and hopeless mys teries upon your hands; accept it, and yoti .have a key , to , all other mystery, As the keenest metaphysical thinker In America, Prof. Bordtn P. Eowne of Boston, used to say In his class room "Mystery we must have at the best, but thre is a choice of myster ies; pool your mysteries in freedom." Mrs. Eddy has pooled her mysteries in "mortal mind," a scape goat whose In trusion upon a perfect universe she makes no attempt to explain. She has all the problems of speculative t thought left upon her hands and she has besides thrown away faith In man's most kingly endowment of which Tyndall, the r physicist, was constrained to write:: "Amid all our speculative uncertainty, there is one practical point asv , clear as the day, namely, that the .brightness and the usefulness of lifeifls well as its dark ness and disaster, depend to a great extent upon our own 1 use or abuse of this miraculous organ," ' As we shall see next Sunday night, It is the abuse . of , freedom, which Mrs. Eddy dsnie3 and-not any error of metaphysical ..thinking-, as Mrs. Eddy alftrins, which has wrought the disas ters of human history; and to over ebme which there ls needed not the Principle" ot Mrs, Eddy's teachings, biTt the God who "was In Christ re- conciiing the world unto Him- self." Next Sunday evening a discus sion will conclude our necessary nega tive criticism and we shall be ready to-consider positively Why and in what sense every Christian, though by no means an Eddylte, should be a Chrlsr tian scientist. r. OBITUARY NOTES. Rev. Wm. n. Kingsbury, Former Crown St'reet Book Dealer. Very peacefully entered the large'r and grander life beyond on Saturday October 6, at Ozone Park, Greater New Yorfy Rev. William H. Kings bury. ' , His was a wonderfully sweet and beautiful life. Mr. Kingsbury was born In Jamaica, Vt, Ma'rch 18, 1833. At the age of six years he had road the Bible entirely through and united with the church when he was nine years old. He entered Brown univer sity when sixteen, and later was grad uated from Bangor theological sem inary. ' , Always zealous in the master's service, arways eager with a quick hand and sincere sympathy to help others he took a keen Interest In the lives of those about him and greatly endeared himself to all who knew him. He was especially fond of children and noth ing gave him greater delight thn to be surrounded by a group of lttlo ones who with happy' faces listened eagerly to his wonderful stories. He prepared to be a missionary, and the greatest disappointment of his life was that he had. to give up this as well as, after a few years, his preaching. He then started a little store in New Haven with a dozen books which grew into one of tho largest second hand book stores in the state. Yale students, and many New Ha-1 ven residents,' loved to frequent "Ye Olde Book Store," as they called it, and talk with "that dear old man." Throughout his life, and during .the whole of his last Illness, when suffer ing acute pain, he never uttered a complaining word, but showed a most wonderful patience and gratitude for everything done for him. Not one cross wo'rd did his loved ones ever hear from his lips. Even at the age of seventy-four, with organlrs heart trouble, he had the strongest desire to live, exclaim ing, "Oh, there is so much to live for!" Still he was Willing to say "Thy will be done," and almost his last words were the veVse he loved: "I know not when His island lift ' Their fonded palms in air; I only kno-w I cannot drift Beyond His loe and care." Mr. Kingf'bury is survived by hi: sister, Mrs. Carleton, who is now the only one left of a family of eight r- Frank A. Mansfield. ' Frank A.
