The Lectures

Before a large audience at the New Grand Theatre last night [April 11], Bicknell Young of Chicago delivered an interesting lecture on Christian Science. Mr. Young was introduced by Congressman Elbert H. Habbard, who said,—

Some one upon the street to-day asked me whether I was a Christian Scientist. I said, "No." He said, "How comes it that you are introducing the speaker to-night?" I said, "First, as an act of courtesy to a stranger within our gates, and then because he comes as the representative of a great and growing body of earnest and sincere believers, asking only for, and entitled to, a fair hearing." The last words of Goethe were, "Mehr Licht," and as we find ourselves surrounded and enveloped by this mystery of life and death, forever flowing and inflowing, beyond which we can scarcely see, when one comes to us offering light, it is well for us to give attentive ear. From the beginning the race has sought more light, more light. To-night I bespeak for him who shall speak to you an open heart and a candid mind, seeking for the very truth.
