Editor Norman Tvanscrint,
It seems proper when the world is
in such turmoil as it is at this time,
Iht:i we consi ler some of ^he vital
forces that are at work for the uplift
and betterment of mankind. One of
the greatest, if not the greatest forces
for good, is the movement known as
Christian Science. It is the solution of
every problem confronting mankind
today, for it is the science of life, and
in its exposition of the various phases,
of experience, it shows what to do and
how to do it. It teaches of God and of
man in God's image. It is healing the
sick and reforming the sinner. It is
making the world better by making
mankind better and showing the world
the utter uselessness of trying to solve
life's problem from the basis of mater-
ial sense or mind in matter.
Christian Scientists are taught how
to pray the fervent effectual prayer
that the Scripture says "availeth
much." Christian Scientists have
learned to obey the command of the
Master Christian to "go into the clos-
et and to shut the door" so that they
can commune with the Father in se-
cret who rewardeth openly. To quote
from the Christian Science text-book,
Science and Health with Key to the
Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, page
1, "The prayer that reforms the sin-
ner and heals the sick is an absolute
faith that all things are possible to
God,—a spiritual understanding of
Him, an unselfed love. Regardless of
what another may say or think on
this subject, I speak from experience.
Prayer, watching, and working, com-
bined with self-immolation, are God's
gracious means ,for accomplishing
whatever has been successfully done
for the Christianization and health of
mankind." Again on page 15, "To en-
ter into the heart of prayer, the door
of the erring senses must be closed.
Lips must be mute and materialism
silent, that man may have audience
with Spirit, the divine Principle, Love,
which destroys all error. In order to
pray aright, we must enter into the
closet and shut the door. We must
close the lips and silence the material
senses. In the quiet sanctuary of earn-
est longings, we must deny sin and
plead God's allness. We must resolve
to take up the cross, and go forth
with honest hearts to work and watch
for Wisdom, TrjLith and Love. We must
'pray without ceasing.' Such prayer
is answered, irr so far as we put our
desires into practice. The Master's in-
junction is, that we pray in secret
and let our lives attest our sincerity.
Christians rejoice in secret beauty and
bounty, hidden from the world, but
known to God. Self-forgetfulness, pur-
it.v, and affection are constant prayers
Practice not profession, understanding
not belief, gain the ear and right hand
of omnipotence and they assuredly
call down the infinite blessings. Trust-
worthiness is the foundation of en-
lightened faith. Without a fitness for
holiness, we cannot receive holiness."
Mrs. Eddy, through whose clear
spiritual, Christian Science was given
:o the world, was a New England
gentlewoman of irreproachable char-
acter, and was honored and beloved
>y her neighbors who were in con-
*ant touch with her and knew of her
noble self-sacrificing life. Her volu-
minous writings breath the purest eth-
rs, the soundest morals, the loftiest
deals. Under her leadership, Christian
Science has encircled the Globe, and
'.'verywhere it has been known by the
good it has done. Through its practical
demonstration, the drunkard loses his
desire for drink, and the sinner loses
his love of sin. It opens to the awak-
ened consciousness new visions of life
and its responsibilities. It awakens the
dead in trespasses and sin "to newness
of lift* in Christ J#sus.
The heart and soul of Christian Sci-
ence is love. It worships God whom
..he beloved disciple said is Love, and
consequently when its followers are
maligned and abused, they learn to
love their enemies and to bless those
that "despitafully use them," thus
fulfilling the Master's injunction
Christian Science will go on in its ben-
eficient healing and saving mission un-
til the world is regenerated through
the Mind that was in Christ Jesus.

The Willys-Knight motor is
the paradov of the entire auto-
While ordinary types of
motors lose their original effect-
iveness with use—the Willys-
Knight gains in power, flexibility
This is not an engineering
theory—but a proved fact.
More than 20,000 owners who
are using Willys-Knight airs
will be glad to tell you so—
and tell you so enthusiastically.
Let us put you in touch with a
few of them.
Carbon, which is responsible
for the undoing of ordinary
ir.ntors, is utilized beneficially by
the sleeve-valve Willys-Knight
While other motors are
periodically incapacitated be-
cause they must have valves
ground and carbon removed,
the Willys-Knight motor im-
proves with use and is sustained
at top efficiency because carbon
is its reconstructing life.

Knights—Four and Eight—and
