Close of Most Re-markable Career ol the Noted Woman Leader LEADER'S IOSS Assemblage in Mother Church * Prepared by Reading of Founder's Letter Mrs. Eddy Confined to Bed Only Short Time Before Pass* ing Away Smith changed the usual form by say- Ing: "I shall now read part of a letter, \u25a0written by our revered leader and printed on page 135 of 'Miscellaneous Writings.' '"My Beloved Students: You may be looking to see me in my accustomed place with you, but this yofc must no longer expect. When I retired from the field of labor it was a departure, socially, publicly and finally, from the routine nnd from such material modes as society and our societies demand. Rumors are rumors — nothing more.. I am stiil with you on the field of bat tle, taking forward marches, broader »nd higher views, and with the hope that you will follow.

"were written years ago, they are true Wday and will continue to be true. But it becomes my duty to an riounc that Mrs. Eddy passed from our sight last night at a quarter be fore 11 o'clock at her home on Chest nut hill." Only those who sat through the service with the knowledge of the mo mentous event of a few h^urs before heard the benediction. Then the greater part fit the congregation left their eeats in silence. There were no words ol forroTv, although many a tear was shed. The strains of the recessional on the great organ were as joyous as ever. As the churchgoers scattered after the services the *iuestfon' of future leadership was referred to with great reserve. . , AO CHANGE IX METHODS \u25a0• -\u25a0""*- These who expressed a view said there would he no change In the methods of carrying on the work, that Mrs. Eddy*s teachings and instruction would be implicitly followed and the church that she founded would con tinue to grow in the future as it had in the past. It was pointed out that witli the ex ception.of a few routine matters the actual direction of the church work was relinquished to a great degree by Mrs. Eddy some years before her death, although she continued to keep !n close touch with those to whom she had In trusted the work and had a clear un derstanding of how it was being per formed. Th«* notice read at the morning ser vice of the Mother church was repeat ed at the evening service to an un usually large congregation, and also was read at many other Christian fai ence churches in this section of the country. PHYSICIAX'S STATEMEXT Dr. George L. West, the medical ex aminer who was called to the home of Mrs. Eddy and fillej out the death certificate, made the following state ment tonight: "1 was called to the home of Mrs. Eddy, early this morning and. arrived about 4:30. T was met at the door by Calvin A. Frye and others of the house hold, ivho directed me to a bed chamber on the seconJ floor. Here I met Mrs. Sargent. "I found the body of a woman of about SO years, lying on the bed, her hands crossed over her breast. The face was somewhat wasted, but kindly, and In repose. I talked with Mr. Frye, who said: 'Mrs. Eddy had been In error about a week and passed away very quietly.* "Mr. Frye described the symptoms and spoke of an inflamn ation of the chest, which led me to the conclusion that pneumonia had been the contrib utory cause of death." Alfred L. Farlow of the publication committee of the Christian Scientist church, and other leaders of -the Mother church Jeclined tonight to make statements concerning the last hours of Mrs. Eddy beyond the one made public in the course of the day. "Lf RS. EDDY MADE M FREOUENTGIFTS First to Respond to Appeals, And Created Trust to End Litigation COXCORD. N. 6.. Dec. 4.— The farm upon which Mrs. Eddy was born July 1«, IS2I, in the neighboring town of Bow. is a short distance from the Con cord line, so that many of her child hood days were spent in this city, and sh« occasionally attended the /"old North Congregational church. The house in which she was born was burned in April. 1910. * Mrs. Eddy first took up her residence in this city in 18R9, living in .. North State street until 1592, when she pur chased the estate subsequently known as Pleasant View, whJch is on an emi nence between the city proper and St. Paul Echdol. She made many changes and im provements on her property and lived there until her departure to live in the beautiful residence prepared for her at Chestnut hill, a Boston suburb. In the first years of her residence in Concord Mrs. Eddy received jg«few stu dents in Christian Science, most, of whom afterward became leaders in the church. She purchased the prop erty nt North State and School streets, near the statehouse. In 1597, and re modoled the house there for what she called a "Christian Science kindergar ten for teaching the new tongue of t-ie co6pel." CJimCII IS ERECTED A few years later the development of thi» property upon ambitious lines be gan, and on July 1". 1904. one of the finest church edifices in the state was dedicated under the title : "The First Church of Christ.- Scientist, „in Con ocrd, X. H." The structure" Is said MRS. EDDY'S TEACHINGS FIND AVAST NUMBER OF FOLLOWERS Founder of Christian Science Passes Through Many Vicissitudes Before Reputation Is Established BOSTON', Dec. 4.— Mary Baker Eddy was born in Bow, New Hampshire. July 16, IS2I. Her father was Mark Baker, and her mother's maiden name was Abigail Barnard Ambrose. Miss Sibyl Wilbur, thelatest of Mrs. Eddy's biographers, whose "Life" was ap proved by the leader-* r.nd by the church authorities, says tii.it "no mys tery today surrounds Mrs. Eddy'n life history. Her birth, her ancestry for 200 years, her eJucation, lie? social de velopment, her individual service to the w^rld. have been scrutinized with the strong seachllght of both love and criticism." Other less friendly commentators on Mrs. Eddy~'s work and life have criti cized her more or less severely, and have denounced her as an imposter. Her life began among the granite foothills of New Hampshire. - Her father was a farmer of Bow and a^de scenJant of revolutionary and colonial heroes, while her mother was of Scot tish ancestry. She was the youngest of three ""daughters. She has - three brothers. y FATHER PERPLEXED She was of delicate health from her birth, and in her childhood is said* to have perplexed her father by sage^say ings and doings. Her education in little schools and later at the Pembroke academy was suppdemented by what she gathered from discussion of redig ious matters^ at the family fireside when several leading churchmen gath ered to talk over church matters with her father. In the early forties George Washing ton Glover, formerly of Concord, be came associated with Samuel Baker, the third son, and as a result Mary Baker and he were married about Christmas in"lS43 at Tilton, N. H. The Glovers .went to the south, where Mrs. Eddy saw slavery in Its worst, forms, and there the June after her marriage she was left a widow. • Returning J.o Xew Hampshire, she gave birth to her son, George Washington Glover,' in Sep tember. Mary Baker Glover spent the next few years with her sister, Abigail, and other relatives in New Hampshire, arid began literary work with several ar ticles on her observations of slavery in the south. She also taugM school. About ISSO a wave of spiritualism swept over' New England, which drew her attention to some extent. After nine years of widowhood Mrs. Eddy married Dr. Daniel Patterson, a New Hampshire dentist. This marriage was not happy. • However, the rela tionship was continued for 20 years, when it was severed by divorce. MEETS PHINEAS QX T IMBY .V A notable event of Mrs. Eddy's life was her meeting in 1562 with Phineas Quinby, a mesmeric healer, at the In ternational hotel in Portland. Me. Quinby, who was the son of a black to have cost upward of $200,000. Of this Mrs?. Eddy gave one-half and the remainder was contributed by her followers. While she lived at Pleasant View it was Mrs. Eddy's custom to take a daily drive, accompanied by Calvin A. Frye. her secretary, along certain fa vorite streets in the city and suburbs. Thus she became much interested in good roads and co-operated with the city in building several miles of con crete and macadam streets until prac tically her entire daily drive was over such roads. v" Mrs. Eddy was tho first to respond to Red Cross and other appeals for aid and made frequent gifts, to local and state charities and educational inter- , ests and for public purposes. SUIT FOLLOWS DEATH IIU3IORS Toward the last part of her resi dence at Pleasant View, Mrs. Eddy entirely withdrew from public appear ance save for her daily drives. This gave rise to many rumors as to her condition and surroundings, and sev era4 times reports of death gained cir culation. Partly as a result of an in vestigation to disprove the rumors, suit was brought on March 1, 1907, in the name of Mrs. Eddy By "her next friends," her son, George W. Glover, of Lead. S. D., whom she had not seen for a number of years: h!s daughter, Mary Baker Glover, and George W. Baker, a nephew of Mrs. Eddy, against Calvin A. Frye and nine others who were alleged to possess a control over Mrs. Eddy and her property, of which they were making undue use. Subsequently E.J. Foster, an adopted son of Mrs. Eddy, and Frederick W. Baker, another relative, joined the "next friends." "William E. Chandler, former secre tary of the- navy, was their prin cipal counsel, while General Frank S. Streeter of this city led the defense. The case came first under the Juris diction, of Judge Hobert A. . Chamber lain of the superior court, and was by him referred to three masters. Judge Aldrich of the United States court. Dr. George F. Jolly of Boston and former Congressman H. TV. Parks of. Clare mont.' .* After an extended hearing they called upon and interviewed Mrs. Eddy at. Pleasant View. Shortly afterward, August 21.' 1907, counsel for the "next friends." announced the withdrawal of the suit. • k TRUST IS CREATED About the time these proceedings be gan. Mrs. Eddy created -a trust of ap proximately $1,000,000, which 'was not far from the amount of the estate, and named her distant relative, Henry M. Baker, of Bow; Archibald MoLellan of Boston and Josiah E. Fernald,. a Con cord banker, as. trustees. This trust Is still in force. . Prior to^this arrangement, Mrs. Eddy had created a trust of $150,000 for the benefit of children of her son, '"George W. Glover. This also, exists. Several months after the withdrawal of the "next friends" suit, It was. an nounced that satisfactory .'financial ar rangements had been made by ; Mrs/ Eddy and her. trustees with her son and foster son, and' last summer Mrs. Eddy was visited at Brookfine by her grandsons. George \V. Glover ".and An drew J. Glover. GENERAL. STREBTER'S TRIBUTE General Frank S^-Streeter,' who rep resented Mrs. Eddy In the -suit and had a close personal acquaintance with the Christian Science leader, gave out the following statement upon learning of Mrs. Eddy's death: _, "I desire to express my profound ad miration for Mrs. Eddy as a women and as the leader of a religious move ment which has deeply" impressed itself on the world. My professional and friendly relations with her covered many years-- and- were especially inti mate from February to September, 1907, when she; was compelled to sub mit to a most vexatious* and harassing litigation, the purpose of which was not only to establish- her mental un soundness but to overthrow the re ligious faith of which she was the ac- Mrs.' " Eddy almost daily: about the THE SAN FBANGISQO :\u25a0. GALIi. MONDAY, DECEMBER 5, '1910', smith, was described at' the time of his meeting, with Mrs. Eddy as a shrewd little man of argumentative disposition and dogged determination. From ac quaintance with him. Mrs. Eddy became Imbued with metaphysical , ideas and began a career in that direction which made her one of the-most famous of the world's mental healers. * Mrs. Eddy. then : ,Mrs f Patterson, dwelt long under the influence of Quinby's mesmeric belief and it came to have, a great though, not supreme weigh£ in her subsequent teachings. Later she denounced Quinby's methods she said: "I discovered the science of mind reading and that was enough." RECOVERS IX ANIGHT After spending two years in Portland Mrs. Patterson rejoined her husband in Lynn, where she lived five years, continuing \ her study of' metaphysics. While there^she suffered a fall on the ice. which: the doctor- said was severe, but from which* she recovered, it is said. In one night. It was this inci dent that led directly to the promul gation of his discovery of 1 Christian science. )\u25a0?'?! The little house in Broad street in Lynn, where she lived at this time, is a Mecca of Christian Science pilgrims from all over the world today. It was in 1875. nine years after the discovery, that the first edition of Science and. Health was published. The closing chapters of the manuscript were writ ten in an upper room of tho Broad street house. In 1877, four years after her separa tion from Mr. Patterson, the founder of the new belief was married to Asa Gilbert 1 . Eddy. In the interval she had been admitted into the Congregational denomination ai*l baptised. FINDS MANY FOLLOWERS Mrs. Eddy established the Massa chusetts metaphysical college in Bos ton In ISBI. Her teachings were taken up and accepted at first by a few fol lowers, and, as years passed by, a larger and larger, number, until the denomination today extends to many lands and numbers millions of ad herents> Mrs. Eddy began preaching In 1878, and organized the First Church of Christian Scientist in Boston in 1879. Subsequently a large edifice was erect ed In this city of 'which she was made pastor emeritus. Her writings at this time became voluminous, and she con tributed largely to the Christian Sci ence Journal, the Christian Science Sentinel and Dv Herold dv Christian Science. Mrs. Eddy took up her residence in Concord- in 18S9 and it was at . her home at Pleasant View - that she watched the great growth of^ the de nomination and received many*enthusl astlc followers. Finally the number of. visitors became so large that she was forced to ask. them to cease their calls. Nevertheless, large delegations con~ knowledged founder and revered head; "For many weeks I conferred with shifting phases of the attacks. She met the charge of mental infirmity with brilliant sanity and reasonable ness. She met every other assault with dignity, patriotism and sound common sense. "Bering those trying months she in spired me with the highest regard for her character and personality. Pro fessional loyalty was, of course, to be expected, but her entire conduct and bearing during the most troubled months of her Mfc inspired myself and others near her with the highest per sonal loyalty and affection." T EADER'S LOSS L a great: blow Dr. Eddy, Adopted Son, Says Her Teachings Will Benefit Mankind WATERBURY. Vt.. Dec. 4.— Dr. E. .J.- Foster Eddy,, adopted ton of Mrs. Eddy, received the first word , of her death from the Associated Press tonight. He expressed himself as wholly unprepared for the news, and said: "I was not only not expecting Mrs. Eddy to pass, away, but I was looking for a further demonstration of her teachings. I do not wish to criticise, but it seems to me that there was a lack of mental or spiritual support which those without her/knowledge of Christian Science can not understand. "Mrs. Eddy was the most' wonderful and lovable woman the world has ever known, and I' belle\-e -her teachings, rightly understood and demonstrated, will benefit mankind more than any others ever knownV "The death of the leader may be a stumbling block to some -members of v the church, but the i ranks are so strongly fortified that the work will be carried on without disintegration. This is the severest blow that Christian Science has received." - Doctor Eddy was in Boston last Sun day attending services at the Christian Science church and visited a number of friends, but was not informed that Mrs. Eddy was not in, her usual health.

"I then withdrew from society about three years;:to ponder my mission to search the scriptures, to find the sci ence of mind that should take the things of God and show them to the creature and reveal the great creative principle— deity. t "The bible was my textbook. It an swered my questions as to- how I was healed; but the scriptures had to me a new meaning, a_ new tongue. Their spiritual signification appeared, and I apprehended for the first time, in their spiritual meaning, JesusV teaching and demonstration and the principles and rule of spiritual science and metaphy sical Miealing — in a word, Christian Science." \u25a0. Mrs. Eddy and her work several times in the course of her religious activities were atacked by antagonists through the courts, but in all cases the assaults failed of ill effect, and the cases which for short periods created widespread interest quickly, fell fiat. She never took legal steps to punish her. adversaries. She* was once obliged to take action to protect the integrity of , her copyrighted works.

There are two or more varieties of "stage hands," but there is a south side businessman who forgets it, and now he Is somewhat out of, humor. Here is the reason: s : . : \u25a0 The. man a few days ago had a big painting contract on hand and he want ed skilled workmen, so he hung out a big.signwhich read like this: "Eight first class stage hands. None others need apply:" It was in a prominent place and seen by., many. News of it spread by "grape ,vine":through the theatrical district. • -. Early the following morning his tel ephone bell began ringing, while the officer boy was kept busy with those who * called in person. From appear ances -most of .the theaters in Chicago had closed, for stage hands galore wanted jobs. All kinds, sizes and col ors:there*were in his office. One of the first there was a real "thespian"— of the joke book kind — a man of long hair and tragic demeanor.. In -a deep-, voice he -explained that younger members of the profession were jealous of his histrionic ability and. that he had been crowded out tem porarily. - He v was willing- to take a I short /'engagement" in any "position" which the man might' have open. Yes, he had played in "Hamlet" and many dramas and knew the stage. The former actor was one pathetic figure in a roomful of assorted charac ters. There -were typical stage hands, boys and men, and they all wanted work, says the Chicago News. ' ..' ' With the number of telephone calls increasing, it proved too much for the businessman, and after he had dis missed the first roomful he fled, leaving his employes to turn away the horde of applicants which followed during the day. , ' _ \u0084 v But even that would have been all right had not some of his friends heard of the experience. Then the next day the telephone began ringing again at short intervals. j x "I am Booth Hamlet, temporarily 'at liberty.' I understand you are looking for stage hands." The businessman explained patiently. The phone continued to ring and the wire brought him messages of the same tenor, but varying as the friends thought of a new joke. Finally: "I heard of your sign," came over the' wire ma deep bass voice. Then In a high falsetto: "Have you any positions left? I am a female impersonator, and—" P This was the last straw. The receiver 'was banged on the hook and the busi nessman .fled again. He has not yet re covered his composure. "Stage hand," it might be "explained. Is the trade term for a painter working on staging. RUMORS OF OIL FINDS PERSIST NEAR DUCOR Rigs Operated in White River Hills for 18 Months 'V [SpeciclDispatch to The Call] PORTERVILLE.

He will poke fun at his wife for her knowledge on the subject of the neighbor's doings, but he can show more genuine Interest in absolutely nothing that you can imagine, and nothing out of the ordinary run of things in city streets is too small to claim his attention. He will let his dinner get cold any day to watch a man sitting on the head of a fallen horse or stare into a hard ware store window where some dem onstrator is busily engaged whittling on a stick of cordwood with a razor. He will send the shoestring vender on his way before he has got his foot fairly litside the threshold of the office door, but will stop upon the street at any time to listen to the remarks of another vender, who is wildly dem onstrating a patent collar button. He is amused, as a child with a new toy when he can come across a broken down ice wagon or watch a rrtSn laying gold letters upon a store window, and a policeman with a common drunk will always get a full share of attention.

It is too early to make predictions buC that it is a. desperate ease may be known Trom the following: September 12. R. B. B. Crum. a mer- chant of Sinnamahoning:. Pa., wrote iv that he had sent for Fulton's Diabetic Compound for his wife. She was so low that she was In coma and knew nothing of what was going on about her. The old gentleman's sons, who are in business with-him. looked upon the ease as hopeless and were opposed to the -use of our Diabetic Compound. We wrote Crum If* reply asking him to keep in close touch with us, as we desired to help him convince his rela- \u25a0 tives that h_e had made no mistake, Since that date we have heard fromr^ him again and again and have sent nu- merous prescriptions to the com- pound in an endeavor to save the aged woman's life. That some progress has been made may be- known from a letter dated No- vember 16. which states that she l*32f gained strength so that she can tunf j over in bed now and has come to her* right mind and can talk. Patient Is still in a distressing condition, being kept alive principally with rich milk and bovinine and we are asked for further help which our physician has \ advised by mail. Her husband closes: I "Tour compound has raised her from • the dead>^o far." He then gives the address of an ex-sheriff whose case has also heen given up. If all our subsequent efforts In this case should fall, who will say that w« have not carried hope into this clouded* home? .We are attempting to do at a dis- tance of 2,000 miles what all the phy- « siclans in Pennsylvania can not do at the bedside and anticipate a slow, but gradual recovery in line with the prog- ress already made.
