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.

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....

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
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. …
