There was a fair-sized audience at the Auditorium last evening [October 22] to hear a lecture on Christian Science by Bicknell Young of Chicago.
Windows each, if our hearts be true,Are we to the hearts about us;Lighting the shades of their cold, gray worldWhich were dreary and dark without us.
The author of the Christian Science text-book takes no patients, does not consult on disease, nor read letters referring to these subjects.
The large and steady increase in the ranks of Christian Scientists has been for years a subject of comment, and there is always more or less question on the part of the general public as to why this gain in numbers should continue.
When we realize with what momentum the twentieth century has vaulted into history, we can but expect that it will bring us many and great surprises, and yet it is quite natural that we should be somewhat startled on reading that a Christian minister, a representative of him who said," "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also," has publicly advocated before a late meeting of the New York State Medical Association, that in the case of suffering incurables the civilized and Christian thing to do, in this enlightened age, is to grant them the privilege of a painless death!

Ten years ago Christian Science found me at the point of despair, due to the constant pain and intense stubbornness of what doctors called inflammatory rheumatism, and many other ailments.
My testimony is not a story of physical healing.
It was in the year 1885 that Christian Science came to my notice.
I have always thought that when I was entirely healed I would send in my testimony but I think now I ought not to wait, as I have been benefited in so many ways since coming to Christian Science.
I first heard of Christian Science three years ago, and I became convinced at once that it was the truth through the healing of my dear mother.
I wish to make public acknowledgment of the help I have received from our periodicals.
I should like to give a proof of our Father's loving care for His children which came to me recently, with the hope that it may help some other mother who, like myself, is obliged to fill the place of both father and mother, and may at times find the problems of this life perplexing and discouraging.
