In behalf of all Christia,n Scientists,
Iwish to expres.,appreciation for Mt.

nterest for Christian Belentists by
reason of his -acquaintance with Mrs.

had, for one who Is not a Christian
Scientist, to form impressions of her
'romt immediate contact.
In her lat-r years she' rarety. re

Mirs. Eddy did not, however, spakce
my arftngements for her . tunerai.
Mr. Briut,ane'-was invited to be one of
he pallbearers, becahse it wasn pre
sumed that- this would be agreeable
to her.
Throughout her writings Mrs, lidy
JIstingulses absolutely between hu
man and divide. will. She descrIbes
he former as "The motive-poe of
.rror;" but the latter as The maight
and wisdom of dod" ("Science and
hIetlth with Key to the Scriptures,"
P. 697).
In this respect, as in evry other,
her teaching Is purely Christian. Thres
she acoepts the Christian precept,
"Not my will, but Thin"', be done.'
Therefore, to practice Christian Sec

NEW YORK. July 23.-The

American Legion will furnish sol
