The "christian scientists" are congratulating themselves that they have at last cured a horse suffering with the influenza, and the result is being telegraphed all over the land for the glory of Mother Eddy and her cult. If "christian science" would only go into the veterinary business exclusively there would be little to say against it, for human health and life would not be affected. This would also be the easiest way of settling its merits, as it would there run up against the financial interests, which are always more sensitive to what affects them than are those where credulity comes in play as an active factor. We shall, therefore, be glad to hear of this practice in that line, and hope it will widen out and try itself on glanders, farcy and other little things less certain to get well of themselves than pinkeye or horse influenza.
