A large audience gathered at the Becker Opera House, Oct. 15, to hear a lecture on Christian Science by Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson of Concord, N. H., who was introduced by William A. McClelland, M.D., as follows:—

The world is seeking to-day, as it has always sought, primarily one thing, a solution of the problem of life. From time to time there have been offered solutions of this problem, but the only one that has met the need is that of the Man of Galilee. It seems there can be no doubt of the value of a system which teaches the letter of the Christ law and the daily living of its spirit. Let us receive the message of Christian Science in a spirit of prayer; it may prove the opening of a new life to some of us, the inspiration and hope of a new solution of life's problem for us, as it has for unnumbered others.

I confess that I have seen diseases respond to Christian Science treatment, after having baffled the skill of our best physicians; have seen lives made happy that were miserable; have seen harmony restored to homes, where existed discord; have seen prosperity and plenty replace poverty; have seen envy, jealousy, and selfishness give place to love and charity in the individual. Because of what I have received through a study of Christian Science, and also because of what I have seen come to others through this same source, I cannot express to you the pleasure that is mine, to be able to present to you one who comes with authority to tell you this always new-old truth, in the hope that it may lead you to think of it, learn of it, to the end that it may do for you all that I know it has done for others.
