Sunday afternoon [Oct. 14] Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson of Concord, N. H., delivered a lecture on Christian Science. In introducing Rev. Mr. Tomlinson to the audience, Mr. S. C. Heyman said in part,—

The expounders of Christian Science are not men and women who have made failures in the other walks of life, but on the contrary are among our most cultured, progressive, and best educated people. They have builded their temple on the foundation of faith, hope, charity, honesty, and brotherly love, and they have builded well, and they should command the respect of every law-abiding and loyal citizen in the universe.

This is an age of science; science dominates, science is knowledge, knowledge that is capable of demonstration. The so-called conflict between science and religion is a thing that has long ago been outlived, and exists only in the minds of the unthinking. I am firmly and conscientiously of the belief that Christian Science has done more than its share towards the betterment of mankind, and it is for this that I respect it and its adherents.
