The Lectures

The City Hall auditorium last night (Monday, October 21) was well and comfortably filled with ladies and gentlemen from East St. Louis and St. Louis, who had come to listen to a lecture on "Christian Science: Physician and Redeemer," delivered by Judge William G. Ewing of Chicago. No admission was charged and no seats reserved. As early as seven o'clock the people began to gather. At eight o'clock every good seat in the auditorium was filled. The majority of the audience from St. Louis, were members of the Christian Science Church, while those from East St. Louis were attracted more by curiosity than anything else.

Mr. Ewing was introduced to the audience by Mayor M. M. Stephens, who stated that he had been selected by the Christian Science Society to introduce a gentleman whom nearly all in the audience had heard before, who would enlighten them on the doctrine of Christian Science, and he considered it an honor to introduce Judge William G. Ewing.

Mrs. Ewing was heartily applauded as he stepped forward, acknowledging the reception. He is a scholarly man, of medium height, white hair, and about seventy years of age, yet as straight as an arrow, a living example of the faith upon which he lectured.
