The Christian Science Monitor 85th Anniversary


Nov. 25, 1908 Something In a Name By Mary Baker G. Eddy

I HAVE given the name to all the Christian Science periodicals. The first was THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE JOURNAL, designed to put on record the divine Science of Truth; the second I entitled SENTINEL, intended to hold guard over Truth, Life and Love; the third, DER HEROLD DER CHRISTIAN SCIENCE, to proclaim the universal activity and availability of Truth; the next I named MONITOR, to spread undivided the Science that operates unspent. The object of the MONITOR is to injure no man, but to bless all mankind. Jan. 29, 1914 Heir to Throne of Austria And His Wife Shot Bomb Is Also Thrown Special Cable to the Monitor from its European Bureau - Vienna

THE capital of Bosnia was yesterday the scene of another of those terrible incidents in the history of the house of Hapsburg. The heir to the throne of Austria and his wife were fatally shot in the streets of Serajevo by a Servian student, Princip. The first shot struck the archduke, and the second the archduchess, who was endeavoring to cover him.

The maneuvers of the Bosnian army had brought the archduke to Serajevo. On Sunday morning he left the barracks at 10 o'clock to drive to the town hall. On his way a bomb was thrown at him by a printer named Gabrinovitch.

He appears to have warded it off with his arm with the result that it fell into the roadway where an explosion inflicted a few scratches on the attendants in the following carriage.

Having satisfied himself that practically no one was injured the archduke drove to the town hall. He was received by the burgomeister and town council, but before the former could commence his speech the archduke interfered with the remark that he had come to visit the capital of Bosnia and had been greeted by a bomb thrown at him in the street. After this he directed the burgomeister to proceed.

On completion of the ceremony he and the archduchess reentered their carriages and drove to the girls' high school. After stopping the motor here he proceeded and had just reached the junction of Franz Josef Strasse and Rudolf Strasse when Princip fired his fatal shots. The motor was hurried to Konak to obtain medical help, but it was too late....

The crime of Serajevo may have been an anarchist one, but it is equally likely to have been purely political. The harsh policy adopted toward the Servian kingdom and the determination to build up Albania at its expense had indeed been regarded largely as inspired by him.... March 10, 1922 Disobedience Policy in India Gets out of Gandhi's Control By an Anglo-Indian - London

Mahatma Gandhi, mystic, ascetic, and revolutionary, whose preaching of civil disobedience in India has been followed by serious disorder in that far-off land, is a small, lean, brown-skinned man to whom one would hardly give a second glace if one met him in an Indian street.

When I last saw him he was addressing a densely crowded meeting of the Indian National Congress in Calcutta. At that time Mr. Gandhi was chiefly known for work he had done in ameliorating the social condition of emigrant coolies from India in the Transvaal and Natal. In politics he was a moderate, and he was an energetic advocate of temperance. Only gradually has he since grown into a visionary fanatic, unable to realize in his mental exaltation that he has been creating among a people singularly susceptible to emotional appeals, conditions of excitement and race hatred he is quite unable to control.

After the visit of the Prince of Wales to Bombay, when his preaching was followed by riots, in which some 50 people were killed and 200 injured, he retired in disgust and declared he was going to fast until his followers had purged themselves of violence - a threat he was subsequently prevailed upon by his friends to withdraw.

His bona fides had been so obvious, however, that the British authorities long thought that to leave him at large was preferable to making a martyr of him as would be the case if they deprived him of freedom. …
