He is not the victim of lack nor of limitation. He reflects the infinite abundance of Spirit or God. He is not Roomed to decrepitude and dissolution. He exists forever at the eternal noontide of being. He is always at the standpoint qf limitless opportunity, activity, and supply.

Material Misconceptions. From) the material point of view man seems to be nothing bdt an organism, with a onkid inside of ij. a mere machine controlled by a supposed Intelligence, which is -invisible and which has never satisfactorily explained bv human philosophy. may be thinking, Why, thp Explanation very simple. The brain seat of the mans intelligence, and k.

-through tjhe' nervous system, controls and regulates the functions and faculties, the movements and actions of the human body. But what made the brain intelligent? What gave it the power to think and to direct activity? Who has ever seen the intelligence that is supposed to be In the brain, und how do we know that it is Many people in the Orient believe the seat of. intelligence to be in the stomach and it might just as well be there as the brain, for there is no essential difference between the kind of stuff that constitutes the stomach and that which constitutes the, bVain. Under chemical analysis they would both yield exactly the same product. The difference, then, is one of belief only and the fact is that neither the brain nor the stomach can originate the least bit of real intelligence.

Even slight recognition of the unreality of matter is of great practical value in everyday, human experience. Take, for example, the question of disease which occupies the attention of so many people so much of the time. In the treatment of disease, knowledge of the unreal nature of matter helps, one to see that pain and suffering are not Condition of matter, but of thought. To know this is to take the first step in the direction of the permanent eradication of disease. If, ns Mrs.

Eddy says, there is no sensation nctr intelligence in matter, it is obvious (hat matter cannot be sick or in pain, nad that if there seems to be a sense of pain or illness, it must be in thought, and not in the body. This fact having been discerned, the futility of treating thought conditions, or mental states, with material remedies becomes evident. How impossible it would be to remove an erroneous mental condition by the use of drugs, mineral water, mud baths, or even by means of a surgical operation. every day adds to the list of mental causes for disease admitted by physicians. Among the mental causes for sickness that have been recognized by physicians are fear, worry, hatred, and anger.

To these Christian Scientists would add envy, jealousy, greed, dishonesty, and all flagrant and subtle phases of sin. Mrs. Eddys Leadership. After Mrs. Eddy discovered this Science of Christian healing, she demonstrated its truth in many wonderful instances of healing through spiritual power alone.

She then wrote and published the great text-book of Christian Science, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, and other books on the same subject. She later established the system of spiritual teaching and healing which is rapidly extending into all parts of the world. She founded the Mother church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, which includes all the activitieo of Shis worldwide movement, and of which all other Christian Science churches are branches. She provided this church with a Manual of by-laws, which, she says, if followed in letter and spirit, will prove adequate to guide this great movement throughout all time. Hie wisdom, courage.

faithfulness, consecration, and inspiration of Mrs. Eddy's leadership nre daily becoming more apparent and better appreciated. If SPECIAL NOTICES. FOR SALE To settle an estate, three building lots in Oak Grove section. price $400 each.
