         We regret to be obliged to say that all are not meta-
         physicians, or Christian Scientists, who call themselves
         so. Charlatanism, fraud, and malice are getting into
15    the ranks of the good and pure, sending forth a poison
         more deadly than the upas-tree in the eastern archi-
         pelago. This evil obtains in the present false teaching
         and false practice of the Science of treating disease through
         Mind. The silent address of a mental malpractitioner
20    can only be portrayed in these words of the apostle,
         “whisperers,” and “the poison of asps is under their
         tongue.”

         Some of the mere puppets of the hour are playing
         only for money, and at a fearful stake. Others, from
25    malice and envy, are working out the destinies of the
         damned. But while the best, perverted, on the mortal
         plane may become the worst, let us not forget that the
         Lord reigns, and that this earth shall some time rejoice
         in His supreme rule,—that the tired watchmen on the

1      walls of Zion, and the true Christian Scientist at the foot
         of the mount of revelation, shall look up with shouts and
         thanksgiving,—that God’s law, as in divine Science,
         shall be finally understood; and the gospel of glad tidings
5      bring “on earth peace, good will toward men.”
