The Lectures

Edward A. Kimball, C.S.D., of Chicago, delivered an address on Christian Science at the Metropolitan Theatre yesterday afternoon (Sunday, January 6) under the auspices of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Minneapolis. The theatre was crowded, and the address was an interesting one and well worth hearing, even to the uninitiated. Mr. Kimball is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. His address yesterday received marked attention throughout. It was interesting, instructive, and to the point.

Mr. Kimball gave a clear exposition of the postulates of the faith in which he is a firm believer. The power of Mind over matter was the keynote of the address. Christian Science, he stated, was an actual, demonstrable Science, and one that had withstood every test during its comparatively brief history. He declared that every known disease had been cured in hundreds of instances by the aid of Christian Science; on the other hand, materia medica admitted there were many incurable diseases.

"Christian Science," said Mr. Kimball, "penetrates every nook in every walk of life, and is the most practical thing that has touched the consciousness of any age."
