The Lectures

Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson of Concord, N. H., delivered a lecture on "Christian Science, Its Benefits and Blessings," at Bush Temple last Thursday night [April 5] before a large audience. The lecturer was introduced by Sam P. Cochran, who said in part,—

Ladies and Gentlemen :—In inviting you here to-night to listen to a lecture, we design to present to you authoritative statement concerning what we claim to be a true and exact science. It is not a religious creed or theological dogma, nor a code of man-made theories and human hypotheses, but it meets all the requirements of a technical definition and understanding of what constitutes a science. It is an elucidation of the facts and laws taught and demonstrated by Jesus, the Christ, in healing the sick, reforming the sinner, and triumphing over death and the grave; hence it is called the Christ Science, or Christian Science. It deals with the great problem of life, that mighty question which constantly confronts mankind and which concerns all humanity.

This Science has been brought to the comprehension of mankind in this age through the discovery or spiritual perception of a meek, loving Christian woman, Mary Baker G. Eddy; and her self-sacrifice and consecration have enabled her to prove its practical utility to-day in healing sickness and elevating the thought of mankind, making her the greatest benefactor to humanity in almost nineteen centuries.—Dallas Times Herald.
