An order of excommunication against
Mrs. Stetson was issued by the board
of directors of the mother church ol
Boston, on the 18th, supreme authority
of the organization. Excommunication
is rarely resorted to in the Christian
Science Church, and in *iew of Mrs.
Stetson’s prominence, the action is re
garded as most drastic.
Later reports say that Mrs. Stetson
may start a new church with herself at
the head and many adherents of the
First Church of Christ Scientists, of
New York, as charter members.
