MORE ON CHRISTIAN SCIENCE. Mr. Brown of the Publication Commit tec, Makes Reply to Wells. LOH Aru'oleH, f'«i., July 2'.',, 1000, Editor f'ovina Argua. ("ovlna, ('»]. Dear Sir:—In your inane of .fulyj 17th Mr. II. X. \Ve||« !inn<-rt» that, ho lins Htudiod f'brisfinn Hejem.-e "a« few BejeiitiKfs ever do." In thlH eonnee- tion it. may be .said th;it. IK- only under-, Htandn the teaching of Christian HHonre who fan demonstrate its rules in healing tin; Kirk and redeeming UK- winner. Our eritie Hef-lcH to dclraet from the importance of the "works" that, the Mast'-i- said nbal! follow them that, ho- lieve. Thf.-HO works were not. "the ( heap exhihition of Hiipernatural ]>ow- er," hut were the incontrovertible ovl- d'-nre that .("HUH wan the T'lirlHt. When John sent a moHHai-'O to JeHiiH inquiring if he were (lie Monsdah, lie did not send an evidence a rreed or dogma. No! He Haid, "Tell John what f.hingH ye liave heard; how that, (he Idlnd nee, 1he lame walk, the lepers are Heaimed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the goH|>ol IH preaehed." In this .niHwer to John It is evident, that Jesii.s did not "minimi/.e the. import anerr of these woiiflcrK," nor t-an tliey lie iiilnimi/ed by any true follower of the Master, whose command to heal the sick Id inseparably connected with the command to preach Ihe gospel. Indeed, (lie only proof that one understands thlH goHpel lien in OIIC'H ability to h"(il the sick. In Mark if,.-20 "• |H said of the discijiles, "Ami Iliey went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming Ihe word with s!«ns following." While rhristian Hclence reeognl/OH the necessity and Importance of healing the sick through Ihe gonpol, it is not primarily a. school of physical healing. Its real mission Is the healing of sin, tho latent cause of all disease. The term "sin" here Is used In its broad sense and Includes all wrong thinking and acting, whether horn of ignorance of self-will—all Ignorance of Cod and his laws. Tho Immunity resulting from the abandonment of sin Is dourly sot forth in Kxodus Ifi1C: "If thou will diligently hearken to tho volco of the Lord thy f!od, and •wilt do that which IB right In his sight, and wilt give oar to his com- innndmcnlB, and keep all hla statutes, 1 will put none of tlieso diseases upon thoe whlch'I have brought upon tho Egyptians: for I am the Lord that henVeth thoe." Those- who understand the principles of Christian Science sufficiently 1o heal tho sick know that the fundamentals of Christian Science have never changed. The changes our critic refers to are only in tho phraseology which Mrs. Kddy Is ever slrlvlng lo simplify for tho student's benefit. If our critic will compare the Twentieth Century Now Testament with that of tho King James version, ho will find much more change than would be caused by "an attempt to find a better word hero and there." In some 1 Instances an entirely new meaning Is brought out. No, (!od does not need to revise Ills leaching, which Is spiritual and comes to the consciousness of man through revelation, hut In I lie attempt to convoy Ills teachings through tho medium of written language various revisions have proven helpful. When our critic assorts that It Is n necessity for Scientists lo purchase each last edition of "Science and Health," he again errs, If hn will read Ihe "Note for students of the lesson" In the lesson imarturly , ho will learn that one does not require the latest edition lo study the weekly lesson. No one is compelled to repurchase I he text book, nor purchase any if they do not wish to, and further more, it is not necessary lo pay $fi.()0 per <Mpy, as the cloth edition, which Is the one mostly in use, is but $:t.uu per copy. Thin price comp'.ires favorably with (hat of other science text hooks and emnnit-nlai'ic*; and sinks In in insignificance ivheu compared with Ihe spiritual and physical hem-tits re- eeiu"! by \\ ho study and prac lice ilS leaellilil'.s.

HI'HMAXK THIOATIUO.

The play's premier comes tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon and the! piece will run through tho week, with a second matinee performance Saturday. "The Greater Claim" Is a four act drama, its plot Involving the struggle between Col. Jasper J. Stone, hqad of a corrupt political machine, and the Rev. Cuylor Armstrong, who attempts the Herculean task of clean- Ing out the Augoun Stables of municipal politics. Armstrong Is rector or St. Luke's Church, Stone being his wealthiest and most generous parish- oner. Ted ford, too, has supplied a strong and Interesting love story through the introduction of Dorothy Flt/gorald, a Salome dancer, whom Dr. Armstrong attacks In a sermon and who proves, ultimately, to be a young woman whom he has wronged In his youth in Paris. A sensational scene In the play shown a masquerade dinner given by Stone to a party of his boon companions at which a young woman, garbed in diaphanous draperies, dances for his guests upon the banquet table, making her appearance from the heart of a great orange.

Finch's Jewelry Store Shows Prosperity In Short Time Since Inception. Pinch, the jeweler, is gradually enlarging his place of business, two doors north of the car line on Citrus avenue, and this week has added extra showcases to accommodate his new stock. Mr. Finch says the addition Is about double what he formerly carried, consisting mostly of watches and serviceable jewelry. With the enlargement Mr. Finch now has one of the best .'quipped stores of its kind in tho valley, carrying a stock far in excess of tho ordinary jewelry store of small cities. Mr. Finch is also very busy with watch anil clock repairing. His success since opening his store has boon romiirkablo. * Mr. and Mrs. W. n.

There Is a story told among the Tartars which has a moral for the civilized men-of the present day. It is t.o this effect: Hobo, cousin of the grout mogul, was condemned to death for participation In >i rebellion. The most skillful swordsman In the empire was provided for the execution, and the KrofK mogul 11 nd his court were present :ts Kpoctatora. The thin, keen blade flashed In the sunlight and descended upon the bun; nock of Hobo, who stood upright to receive tlie stroke. The executioner's work was so deftly done (tint, though the head was severed, not a \ilai organ was disturbed. Hobo remained standing. "What, Hobo, art thou not beheaded'.'" exclaimed the grout mogul. "My lord, I am," replied Hobo, "but as long as 1 keep my balance right my head will not fall off." The great 'mogul was placated. A band was put. on Hobo's neck, and he recovered. He afterward became a loyal subject and was made cashier of the empire because, as the groat rnoguJ remarked: "lie kiHjWH that if he keeps his balance right bis head will not conic off." —Exchange.

If a thoroughly iiry and clean sewing need I L' Is carefully laid on the surface* of water in a basin the needle will (luat. in spito of the hif-'h density of stool — seven or eight times that of water. On closer Inspection It is found that the surface of the water is depressed under the needle, much us If there were a thin film .stretched o* or the water and slightly Indented by the weight of the needle;. This jroperty of liquids of offering a certain resistance U< a force exerted upon their surface is termed "surfacu tension." The magnitude of the force of surface tension varies from one liquid to another. It is greatest In the case of mercury. The cause of the phenomenon must probably be looked for In the attraction of the liquid molo- cules to one another. A sowii«g needle thus floating upon water mny be used as a compass if it has previously been magnetized. It will then point north and south and will maintain this position if the containing vessel Is moved about. If the needle Is displaced by force it will return to its position along the magnetic meridian as soon as the restraint Is removed.—Chicago Tribunn. Locating • Broken Wire. When a telegraph wlro Is broken or damaged. Bay, several hundred miles away, how does the operator, sitting In his office, know exactly where tue accident occurred? The explanation is simple. It requires, as every one knows, considerable force to send electricity through, a wire. The longer the wire the greater, of course, must be the force roiiuired. This force Is measured in units called by electricians "ohms." Lot us suppose that, a wire between a New York o'lico and a point 150 miles away has broken somevvhcro. The telegrapher knows that when the wire was Intact there wore- required, say, •J.loi) ohms to facilitate the current, or fourteen ohms to the miie. lie now tlnds that he cau send a current with only 700 ohms. Dividing 700 by 14, he tiiuls that the break in the wire 1* fifty miles from his end.—-New York Tribune.
