The Lectures

The Ninth Street Temple was filled yesterday afternoon, and those present listened to an eloquent and scholarly statement of the great and advancing cause of Christian Science.

The orator was Hon. Clarence A. Buskirk of Princeton, Indiana, and he is recognized as one of the foremost exemplars of the new faith. The Buskirk family has for several generations been very prominent in the affairs of Indiana. Several state offices have been filled by them, and the speaker of yesterday was from 1874 to 1878 the attorney-general of the state. He is a man still in active and healthy life—a man of fine voice and presence—and his address yesterday was a jewel in its way. He arrived direct from Princeton Saturday evening and was the guest until to-day noon of Capt. William Somerville, commandant of the Soldiers' Home. He returned to Princeton this afternoon and goes thence to Harrisburg, Penn.

The speaker was introduced by Captain Somerville, and he chained the attention of his auditors for an hour and a half.—The Quincy Daily Herald.
