The Racine Times
Association Hall was well filled Thursday, September 28, with intelligent men and women, among the number being a delegation from Kenosha, to listen to ex-Judge Clarkson of Omaha, on Christian Science.
At 8.30 the speaker came upon the stage, accompanied by Mr. Simmons, who introduced him to the audience in the following language:—
Ladies and Gentlemen:—It may be taken for granted, I think, that every fair-minded person is or ought to be a seeker after truth. Inasmuch as truth has, from the very dawn of creation, had a habit of presenting itself from time to time in new and unexpected forms, the candid mind will reject no idea nor form of belief, no doctrine of life, which has met the acceptance of any considerable body of his fellow-men, without careful investigation. It will not be sufficient to such a mind, merely that it fails to have the sanction of authority or antiquity. While I am not sufficiently informed as to Christian Science to count myself as an adherent to its particular form of thought, I cannot fail, indeed no one can fail, to recognize that it has within a few years past drawn to itself a numerous following, including some of our most intelligent and best people. This fact alone is sufficient to render it a pleasure to me to listen with you to-night, to an exposition of its principles by one who has given them deep and earnest study. You will permit me to say that the only hesitation I have felt about introducing to you the speaker of the evening arises from the fact that he is a lawyer, and being a lawyer yet contends that he has found a more satisfactory way of serving his fellow-men than by following strictly his profession.
