THE LECTURES

Mayor Field W. Swezey at the Indiana Theatre Sunday afternoon, Oct. 14, introducing Hon. Clarence A. Buskirk, who lectured to a crowded house on Christian Science, said in part,—

In the future, when the student of history turns back the pages of time and comes to this period, one of the things that will stand out in bold relief will be the growth of Christian Science during this period. I am not of this faith, but I most certainly stand for that freedom of thought, that freedom of speech, that freedom of belief which has made this wonderful growth of yours possible. We all of us must and do believe in the influence of mind over matter, the spiritual over the material; and in this age of such marked development also in things material, when even our churches have in some instances been tainted with materialistic notions and ideas, how fortunate it is that the Christian Scientist should come proclaiming with such telling and convincing force the great truth that the spiritual, not the material, is supreme. Certainly that religion which makes man better men, women better women, which softens sorrow, heals the sick, dries the tears, tempers speech, brings peace and comfort to the grief-stricken heart, makes the world better and mankind stronger,—that religion is worthy of consideration and cannot be all wrong.—Correspondence.
