The Lectures

The Billings Daily Gazette

An appreciative audience greeted Judge William G. Ewing at his lecture on Christian Science at Macatawa Park, Mich., Thursday, August 15. Between five and six hundred people were present, and gave the closest attention to the speaker. He was introduced to the audience by Judge Alfred Wolcott, who spoke as follows:—

At this pleasant resort by the lake there gather every summer a great many people. They come from many cities and from different states. They represent many avocations, and are of all creeds and opinions. They come here for the quiet and restfulness of the woods, and the shore, and the great lake with its many voices and its ever-changing moods.

This auditorium has been built here in the grove for religious and other uses. Open on all sides to the hills and woods, it suggests the leafy temples of the first worshipers. It is dedicated to no particular church or creed, but all alike may have a voice and a hearing from this platform.
