Irrigation and Reclamation of
Arid Lands Will Be
Improvements of Harbor to Make
Clear That Money Has Not
Been Wasted
Under the agreement entered into
between representatives of San Diego
and those of San Francisco certain
sulidit features havfc been arranged
for exploitation by the Panama-Cali
fornia exposition as being peculiarly
adaptable 10 the purposes of the San
Diego enterprise. Within the Bcops
of these unique features will be the
presentation of the history of the
countries tributary to the exposition
and objective exhibits of the modern
scientific processes of reclamation, Ir
rigation and colonization.
Under the head of history will come
the collecting of exhibits of all the
native tribes of the far west, Mexico,
Central and South America; the re
production of their •architecture and
mode of living, together with their
arts and industries in such a manner
as to preserve the story of races fast
passing away.
The government has spent and Is
spending vast sums of money in re
claiming arid America. Practically all
of this wealth is being spent in the
southwest, where a territory as large
as the state of New York, hitherto
supposed to be absolutely worthless,
is being turned into a veritable gar
den. Few persons outside of the dis
tricts immediately affected by these
projects know anything of the work
going on. There is every reason to
believe that when these facts are
made known and the manner In which
this reclamation is being accomplished
is demonstrated it will create a world
wide interest in the development of
this section of the country.
In the matter of Irrigation it is pro
posed to demonstrate the manner of
storing, carrying and applying water
for the purposes of cultivation from
the rude ditches and adobe reservoirs
of the aborigines to the immense ma
sonry dams and aqueducts ot the
present day, which are among the
most remarkable engineering feats of
the age. Pew persons realize the
change that can be accomplished with
water in our so-called duserts, or the
possibility of conserving this water in
these arid districts, but what has been
done in isolated cases can be done
today with millions of acres of sup
posedly worthless land.
Having a vast undeveloped and
sparsely settled territory with plenty
of water and capable of producing
every known fruit and grain it re
mains to people that territory. Ac
complish this and two markets are,
en ;ted—for the tiller of the soil who
produces, the manufacturer who util
izes and the capitalist who develops—
all these buy and sell. San Diego is
the gateway to the southwest. A dem
onstration of these faqts will bring the
people and the capital.
After the completion of the Panama
canal a large part of the stream of
European immigration now pouring
into the ports of the Atlantic states
can easily be diverted to the Pacific
coast, and San Diego, because of geo
graphical position, will We the distrib
uting point for these colonies of home- I
seekers. The fact that we have noth
ing on this coast tc offer the immi
grant except the potential possibilities
of an undeveloped country requiring
energy and ambition will exclude the.
undesirable element, for we only have
to cits history as an examplo of the
sturdy stock the conquering of nature
San Diego is looking forward to the
improvement of its harbor. Plans are
being drawn and work of construction
will be under way by 1912. One of the
prime objects of the Panama-Califor
nia exposition is that the money to be
expended upon docks, sea walls and
the dredging of the bay shall not be
■wasted. Docks anl warehouses with
out commerce and freight are worth
less and the port that cannot supply
cargoes has no attraction for the ship
owner. "With a rapidly growing terri
tory to draw from, rich in every min
eral and extremely fruitful, San Diego
can hope, by the time her docks and
sea wall are completed, to be in a
position to demand recognition from
the commerce of the world.

IF you were a lady you'd have to
dine, even at that, wouldn't you?
And if, being a lady you pos
sessed a pup, you'd want that pup to
dine, too, wouldn't you—being hu
mane and all that? And even though
you habitually went to a flrst-class
cafe you'd still expect the bull pup
to be fed there, wouldn't you? On
the principle that "Love me, love my

Miss Gladys Lockwood, who warbles I
a touching ditty about Mary who took
her calves to the dairy show (she
doesn't mean what you mean, either)
over at the Orpheum, is a perfect i
lady, and Bhe has a bull pup which \
she leads about on a leash. She habit- j

good eating, and she customarily feeds
her dog, too. Ergo, when she dines
with the dog at Levy's she expects
said canine to be fed there, too. Cus
tomarily he is so fed—in the base- j

But last Friday night Miss Lock
wood accepted an invitation to an
after-theater supper. She had the pup
at the Orpheum and naturally she j
took the pup along after the show.
She got him past the door man, all ,
right, because it was chilly, she had !
on a long cape and she put the dog
beneath it. So far, so good. She even
passed the glance of the head waiter,
for big Max only saw the cape. And
she was soon seated at a table in close
proximity to the stage of the cafe
chatant, prepared to enjoy it.
It was very pleasant. The pup,
under the table, reposed on the fringe
of her skirt and was sound asleep,
not being given to feeding like hu
mans at all unearthly hours. The
companionship was delightful, the
viands excellent and the wine good.
And even the music pleased, though
Miss Lockwood, being herself a singer,
had a right to be a bit blase. Still
she didn't mind it, and neither did the

This is where he made his mistake—
not in coming back, but in picking on
a certain song for an encore—nothing

Bicknell Young Explains
Christian Science Tenets
Large Audience Hears London Lecturer Pay Great Tribute to Mrs.
Eddy in Address in Temple Auditorium—Lee C. Gates
Introduces Speaker, Who Holds Close
Attention of Hearers
A large and attentive audience as
sembled at Temple auditorium yester
day afternoon to hoar Bicknell Young
of London, England, lecture on
Christian Science. Mr. Youngr was
introduced by Lee C. Gates and held
his auditors' attention unswervingly,
delivering not a defense of Christian
Science, but an explanation of what
Science means and what it can and
has accomplished. At his close the
speaker paid a high tribute to Mrs.
Eddy, saying the debt humanity owes
her would bo better appreciated In the
years to come than It can be today.
Mr. young said:
Idy, problem contains owes
• would be better appreciated in the
irs to come than It can be today.
young said:
problem contains within Itself
the sa.ni of its own solution. This
fact 3 quite as true of life as of busi
ness or any other human endeavor.
In the effort to solve the difficulties In
hlimsn ex!9t?nW, frenprnily accepted
theories of religion and science have
considered afflictions legitimate and
Christian S Science boldly declares
they are not legitimate, and conse
quently not inevitable. It takes a new
standpoint. It asserts that a solution
of the problems of life becomes pos
sible only through such scientific edu
cation us will lift observation and
thought above mere material ex
perience to the discernment of- a per
manent basis and an absolute rule of
life. ;;•..;-■■- |V
In line with these logical conclusions
it is seen that the old, constraining
method of watching for the material
phases and symptoms of disease, in
stead of searching for their causes, has
not tended to decrease them. On . the
contrary, they have increased, many
new diseases constantly appearing.
Christian Science, on the other
hand, tends to decrease the number of
diseases, and it is universally acknowl
edged that it has never invented any
new ones. Indeed, careful investiga
r ones. Indeed, careful investlga
tion shows that it both discloses and
destroys the roots of disease.
Indeed, as a system of education,
Christian Science is unique and orig
inal. It explains itself, and nothing
else explains it. It can be approached,
however, from a common standpoint
which is universally acceptable. That
we exist Is incontrovertible. It is a
fact so absolute that no one questions
it. Upon that fact depends all achieve
ment in science, art and general
That universal fact involves cor
relative facts which are not at first
so easily perceived, but which are Just
as absolute. Man Is not self-existent
nor self-creative. He Is effect, not
In such analysis, however, it is not
pretended that human existence illus
trates the truth concerning man. Ma
terial life is generally regarded as
more or less unsatisfactory. Some may
1 say It is largely a mistake; and in
moments of great discouragement,
some have even declared It to be wholly
a mistake. But it matters not what
view may be taken of human existence.
Even if it be regarded as a mistake,
it would be admitted as a mistake
about something, since it could not be
a mistake about nothing.
Therefore, whatever one believes or
disbelieves, merely by existing he is
constantly proclaiming a first great
Cause, the Divine Principle of being
whom Christians unite In calling God.
The nature of Divine Principle is
necessarily continuous. No logical
thought concerning God is possible
without the acknowledgement of His
eternallty. Being eternal, He is exempt
from any characteristic or qualities
that might tend to interrupt Being.
Disease is universally acknowledged
isease is universally acknowledged
to be destructive in its nature. Sin Aa
ally so, for it tends to tear down
both character and body. Neither sin
nor disease ever build up or construct.
The first great Cause or Creator is
constructive, upbuilding. Consequently,
Christian Science reasons inexorably
that sin and disease are not of God;
that they do not originate in Him;
that they are not sustained nor in
any way sanctioned by Him.
It declares that God does not permit
them for any purpose whatever, for in
order to do that it would be necessary
for Him to be conscious of them, and
to be conscious of an element of des
truction is to have that element.
Christion Science, therefore, disclos
ing the fact that God cannot be con
scious of any evil element or quality,
crystallizes that fact into the state
ment, God is good. This deduction has
been generally accepted, but not gen
erally understood as scientific. Chris
tian Science enables one to understand
It by logical reasoning producing con
clusions of the most convincing nature.
The word of God carries an associa
tion the most sacred of any to be found
in language, and yet on account of in
adequate education, right ideas of God
do not generally prevail.
Not Infrequently mental pictures are
entertained in the endeavor to under
stand God's personality, but no think
ing person believes that It would be
possible to make a mental or other
picture of Infinity.
Persons unaccustomed to Christian
Science teaching, however, are ant to
think that a denial of material sense
of things is equivalent to the denial
of one's own existence, but that such
is not the case is clearly shown when
we remember that sometimes in the
contemplation of something very beau
tiful, or when absorbed In some inter
esting subject, we forget our material
existence and live in a realm entirely
above it for the time being.
Such experiences give a hint of
Christian Science teaching concerning
the real man and his relation to God,
and show conclusively that a discern
ment of Immortality Is to be gained by
rising above the evidence of the senses.
If it be scientific along the lines of
human endeavor to expect that the evi
dence of the senses concerning the out
side world will be changed by means of
science, and this is the expectation. Is
it unscientific to expect that such evi
dence in relation to the human body
may also be changed? Is it less scien
tific for Christian Science to change
the evidence of the senses In this re
gard than for other sciences to change
other evidences of the senses?
Though the ways by which such
changes are accomplished in Christian
Science are different Is It necessarily
loss scientific? Since all science in
volves the recognition of ideas and
their use, shall that not be legitimately
called science which brings to light
right ideas concerning God and shows
how to employ them?
Unquestionably this is the Christ
way, even though it be not generally
recognised as such. The works of
Jesu.s have generally been regarded as
miraculous; no doubt they were bo to
human sense, but they were not un
It is generally believed that the whole
course of nature was Interrupted and
the laws of nature set aside in order
that Ho might do those wonderful
works. Christian Science inculcates
other and better views. It shows that
the works of Jesus were miraculous
alone to those who did not or had not
understood them. To him they wore
natural and lawful. He did not set
aside the law of God but fulfilled it.
just as He said He came to do.
Anything unusual is apt to appear
miraculous and especially so to ignor
ance. if . a savage were to appear
among us he would find that we were
doing many things which would seem
to him Inexplicable and therefore mir
aculous, but they, are to us scientific
and perfectly natural. So it Is with
the works of Jesus, the power which
He exercised has been misunderstood
and ascribed to His personality, but,
to put it in a homely way, it was not
what He looked like, it was not mere
nnnnnannna tl.ot Onohiad him til fid his
! works,' but what he understood, what
! he thought. What he thought we may
think and he declares that we must,
for he said, "I am the way." There
is no other way of "doing anything.
Do Christian Scientists love Jesus
less because they of all people recog
nize most clearly the character of his
works and means by which they were !
accomplished? He did not say,-' Grow
emotional over my memory or shout
mv names with hallelujahs,! but ho
gave one rule by which men should
prove their love for him, saying, 'If
ye love me, keep my commandments.
Christian Scientists are striving to
keep them all, including the one to
heal the sick. They believe that all
Christians will ultimately awake to
discern this manifest duty, and and to
avail themselves of their natural privi
lege to heal the sick by spiritual power
as taught by Christian Science.
'in showing that the scientific way
to overcome disease is to resist the evi
dence of the senses wherever such evi
dence testifies to the presence of dis
ease, Christian Science is Indicating the
Christ way. Jesus himself said at the
tomb of Lazarus in the face of all the
evidences of the senses, "I know that
Thou hearest me always." and this
recognition that God is the Creator of
man and that therefore man's life la
Immortal and uninterrupted in spite
of the evidence of material sense to the
contrary, raised Lazarus from the
Practically all religious experience
shows that sin Is the most difficult evil
element to eradicate. So tenacious is
it that all Christians admit that It can
he eliminated only by Christ. Admit
ting this. then. I say it is preposterous
to assume that the lesser element, dis
ease, cannot be eliminated through
Christ except by aid of drugs, surgical
operations or other material means. •
Christian Science maintains a con
sistent attitude; it is invariable both
as to principle and rule, and it shows
that the ideas which reveal God origi
nate In Him and can be employed
through the scientific method of Chris
tian Science, the Christ power, which
operates to change the inharmonious
evidence of the senses.
But It may be asked when Christian
Science heals a case of disease. doe«
not the evidence of the senses say that
the person is well, and if one cannot
accept such evidence when it testifies
of disease. h<»w can he do so when It
testifies of health?
Christian Science replies that har
mony is the natural status of man and
Is God's law to man. When disease is
overcome through the application of
that law, it is Science which has
achieved the result and the result is
The material senses, finding their
master in the Christ truth, yield to that
law and testify to health. Were it
otherwise they would be greater than
God, hut the healing Is not merely
sense testimony; It Is the evidence of
scientific truth.
« ; . ; : DISEASE
The race has been striving for cen
turies to mitigate or eliminate the rav
ages of disease. Indeed, it is admitted
that disease is wholly abnormal and
undesirable. Every sane person is
willing to part with it. Christian Sci
ence classifies It correctly. It shows
that disease cannot be any part of
God and that the Creator could not
create anything harmful or Inharmo
nious. Disease Is therefore seen to be
no part of Science or Truth, and the
conclusion is Inevitable that it is
wholly in the nature of error.
This analysis, however, while abso
lutely logical, is not immediately satis
factory. It requires proof. The one
who hears it will admit that although
he may object to the teaching that dis
ease Is error, yet ho would be glad if
it were. Indeed, all the world would be
glad to recognize the erroneous nature
of human suffering. It is then worth
while to find out that we are all agreed
in the wish that disease might be only
a mistake.
The question naturally arises, then,
How does Christian Science classify
disease more specifically?—and the an-
BWer is that as disease does not exist
1n Truth or GiVl, it only exists in be
lief, and that, in the last analysis, man
kind is not contending with disease
per se, but with the belief of disease
which, on account of centuries of
wrong education along the lines of su
perstition and fear, appears more real
than truth Itself.
But, it may be added, if it is ad
mitted that the race is suffering, what
difference does it make to classify dis
ease as belief, since the experience is
the same whether it be called disease
or belief? Christian Science answers
that it makes a vast difference. Recog
nizing disease as belief there Is loss
fear of It and there immediately ap
pears the possibility of overcoming it
If tl\4 teaching In this respect is under
With the. old Idea that disease is
natural and perhaps God ordained that
It has inherent power and exists and
continues according to law, we are
hopeless; but with the understanding
that such is not the case and that dis
ease, not originating in God, has nc
real origin nor inherent power, one sees
the possibility of destroying disease,
even when It Is called incurable.
If we admit a Creation and thereby
admit the existence of a Creator who
must be eternal we are forced to admit
the conclusion that God Is not tha
author of sin, disease, or their cul
mination, death.
This fart is Irrefutable and It Is basic
in Christian Science. Now, then COtnei
at once the question as to how sin ani
disease, including want and woe, could
even appear. When one explains to the
inquirer that they could not originate
In the Infinite, and that therefore, they
have no origin and that their appear
ance is false, he ponders, and then with
a suilili n cotrvictlon that he is about to
propound a most original and unan
swerable question he straightway de
mands: Well, granting that they have
no cause and therefore no real exist
ence, how is it that they seem to exist?

Let it be said without further delay
that this question is neither unanswer
able nor original. Everybody asks it
some time in his career. There is, how
ever, only one way of getting a satis
factory answer, and that is through the
proof which Christian Science affords
by actual demonstration.
When one accepts the unquestionable
fact that God is not the author of
anything destructive or afflictive and
begins to maintain that fact and rea
sent from It that disease or affliction,
having no origin in God, have no law
of action or presence and no real ex
istence, then he will get a proof of the
efficacy of Christian Science Instruc
tion, and that proof explains disease or
affliction ly eliminating it. The de
struction of evil is the explanation of
evil, and there is no other.
It cannot be destroyed by the popu
lar systems of medicine and theology.
The best they can do is to mitigate
human suffering to some extent. To
ascribe such experiences to God, as
these systems generally try to do In
some mysterious way, tends to per
petuate sin and disease.
The world ennnot fully understand
the debt of gratitude which it owes to
Mrs. Eddy. The perspective of history
will alone reveal it, and even then per
haps only partially. When she dis
covered the Divine Principle of Chris
tian Science, if she had stopped there,
merely applying her discovery to her
own needs, the wprld not have
been benefited. She went much fur
ther than that. Impelled by an irre
sistible longing to help mankind, she
saw that the method of Christian heal
ing must be stated in such a way as
to be understood and practiced.
Through years of experience she
gradually formulated the statements of
Christian Science, both as to Its Divine
Principle and Rule, and the Christian
Science text book. Science and Health,
is consequently not it theoretical work,
but a practical, scientific exposition of
the Christ Science. The statements
which it contains constantly grow In
beauty and sublimity the more the
lmnk is studied.
The book enables one to understand
the spiritual import of the Bible, and,
like the Holy Scriptures, "Science and
Health, with Key to the Scriptures,"
discloses the Infinite Science of Infinite
I,ife. It declares what the Bible de
clares in relation to Hod and His law,
and makes the teachings of the Holy
Scriptures practicable and applicable
to all human needs.
The duke of Manchester, now in this
country. says that of the 600 lords 300
are "working heart and. soul for the
good of the empire." Particularly those
who squealed like stuck pigs when It
was proposed that they pay land taxes
to the empire based on more modern
valuations than the figures of Oliver
Cromwell's time. Every day Is ground
hog day in Merrle England.—Puck. „
