The teachings of Christian Science

Mr. Toung said:
"To recognize the nature and action
of thought is educational. To arouse
or awaken a human being to the ne
cessity for correct thinking and the
power to attain it as a habit is the
object of all true religious and philo
j Thoughts of Disease Avoided.
"For this reason it is universally rec
ognized that in order to produce good
moral results It is necessary that moral
teaching should be carried on, and in
accordance with this necessity people
are taught to guard themselves against
evil thoughts, whether audible or si
lent. Is there not the same necessity
to guard against the thoughts of dis
ease? "What must then be the conclusion
as to the present effort made through
the press and elsewhere to instill the
belief of disease into children, and
others, by means of processes that are
"If it were not obvious that such ef
forts are basically wrong the results
of the last 10 years prove them to be
no. The advocates of such systems
themselves admit that the diseases,
which so-called education was aimed
to mitigate or destroy, have increased
enormously in that decade, and anyone
who has observed carefully the influ
ence of thought in human history
should have no difficulty In perceiv
ing that such results would necessarily
follow such a wrong system.
System Called Wrong.
"If one is to learn about disease and
the constantly shifting theories which
characterize medical science in order
to guard himself against disease, if one
m is to be forced to build up in his own
thought images of disease and germs
and microbes and bacilli through the
use of charts and experiments in order
to be healthy, why would it not be
necessary to familiarize the young, and
others, with all the vices and sins that
characterize depravity in order that
they may thereby gain in virtue and
"If it be true, as experience has
proved beyond any doubt, that moral
education and high ideals tend to im
prove character, why is it not equally
true that the inculcation of true ideas
as to the origin, cause and law of be
ing tends to improve health, and that
contrary teaching tends to produce
Sanitation Cardinal Teaching.
"Notwithstanding the somewhat
common notion that Christian , Scien
tists oppose sanitation and hygiene,
the fact is that they are enthusiastic
believers in and advocates of both.
Scrupulous cleanliness in everything Is
a rule among those who practice
Christian Science. They require not
only personal cleanliness but clean air,
clean food, clean streeUi, clean water,
clean clothing, clean houses and that
everything be clean with which they
may be associated or surrounded.
"And when ail this is done. Christian
Scientists are still unsatisfied, for
Christian Science shows that little has
been accomplished in the nature of true
hygiene, and that little that is worthy
of the name of sanitation until the
human mind itself is cleaned out and
"Jesus stated this fact more strongly
than anyone else could, and Christian
Science practise has proved conclusive
ly that to the extent that the human
mind is emptied of fear, malice, envy,
hatred, revenge, evil thinking, evil
speaking and all the beliefs of vice
and sin and disease, just to that ex
ttent is a true sanitary system being
Mental Hygiene Equally Advocated.
"And, furthermore. Christian Science
has proved in innumerable instances
that when such a system of hygiene,
purely mental, is established, all of the

than fulfilled, and just in that pro

"We are apt to think of revelation

Labor Commissioner Holt, who soon

estimate the population of Baker
County at 20,376 and Benton County
It is his Intention to incorporate in
his report estimates of the popula

of arriving at the figures is unque. It
is based upon the average school
census, attendance and enrollment in
the schools in 1913, when the last
census was taken by the Federal Gov
ernment, and that of the school de
partment for 1914.
He figures, for instance, if there
were 10,000 school children in a cer
tain county in 1910. and they had
parents, brothers and sisters totaling
8000, the scnool children this year, a
census of whom has been taken, must
have parents, brothers and sisters in
the same proportion as 1910
"I will admit it is an unusual
method of arriving at the figures," said
the Labor Commissioner, "but even
