From the February 1895 issue of The Christian Science Journal

At a Christian Alliance convention held in this city — Altoona, Pa.— recently, one of the principal speakers being prompted to "say something about Christian Science," responded as follows: "Christian Science is a lie; a scientific lie and a theological lie. They say the body is not real. That pain and disease are not real; that nothing is real. It denies the body of Christ. It is great on ideas. David Hume an infidel taught this doctrine; when he died a wag placed the following inscription upon his slab.

Beneath this circular idea,
Vulgarly called a tomb,
Impressions and ideas rest,
Which constituted Hume.'

The way to get rid of Christian Science is to hold it up to ridicule and laugh it out of existence. Divine healing is as far above Christian Science as pole is from pole. I made this statement in the city of Boston in presence of Mrs. Eddy."
