The Lectures

Judge Septimus J. Hanna spoke at Foster's Opera House last night [June 2] on the subject of Christian Science. The lecture was free, and there was a good attendance, both of the adherents of the Christian Science faith and of those not of that belief.

Judge A. H. McVey of the Polk County district bench, introduced the speaker. Judge McVey said it was the history of the human race that new things were received with incredulity, and it was a sad commentary that the most intelligent people were impatient and unwilling to listen to that which was contrary to their political and religious ideas. In the modern day, however, this had been in some measure outgrown. Judge McVey counseled that every one should not only willingly hear others and those of opposing beliefs, but, moreover, should hear with open mind. He said there was perhaps no more important subject than that of religion, and he was there himself as a listener and a hearer, without much knowledge of the subject to be considered, yet glad of the opportunity offered to learn more of it through Judge Hanna.
