The Lectures

Everiss Hall was filled to its utmost capacity Thursday night [June 9], to listen to the lecture on Christian Science given by Edward A. Kimball of Chicago. Judge H. L. Larwill introduced the lecturer, saying in part:—

Ladies and Gentlemen:— Whatever may be our individual views upon any subject, we should always accord to the advocates of different theories a respectful hearing. There is nothing that so surely marks a person provincial as the dogmatic adherence to his own beliefs and the flippant rejection of the views of others. It is much easier to scoff at a theory that we do not understand than it is to study its principles and science. I believe in the broadest catholicity of thought: I believe it is the inherent right of every one to advocate and adhere to that system of theology that appeals to him most strongly and of whose truths he is convinced. The line between theological truth and error is so constantly shifting that it is difficult for one to be sure that he is upon the right side. This of itself should engender in us all a spirit of toleration.—Adrian Telegram.
