An Impromptu Service

A group of travelers, embracing salesmen, newspaper men, and others, was gathered in the rotunda of a large hotel talking about various kinds of cures, and made faith healing the point of the talk. Christian Science was referred to as being like all other methods, and one objected to the comparison. He was at once asked to explain. A very interesting and instructive conversation followed. Many practical and sincere questions were asked. Very soon an elderly man entered the circle and said that he was a Christian Scientist from London, Eng. Our conversation went on, getting more interesting and the number of listeners and participants constantly growing.

There was no church service held in that town, and as it was Sunday evening all were invited to a private parlor, and after singing from the hymnal the Lesson-Sermon was read to them, after which they remained till nearly 11 P.M., listening to the Bible explained, and asking many questions. When they left they said it had been a most interesting evening, and that they had benefited by it.

They knew much about the Bible, and asked only sincere and practical questions. They were eager to learn of it and seemed to keep all that was told, thus building up a fair idea of that which they had heard only very fragmentarily.
