The Wednesday Evening Meetings

[We are indebted to the Boston Herald for the following report.—Editor.]

Quietly, without a trace of fanaticism, making their remarkable statements with a simplicity which sprang from the conviction that they would be believed, scores of Christian Scientists told of cures from diseases, physical and mental, at the testimony meetings that marked the close of their visit to Boston; cures that carried one back to the age of miracles. To hear prosperous, contented men and women, people of substance and of standing, earnestly assure thousands of auditors that they had been cured of blindness, of consumption in its advanced stages, of heart disease, of cancer; that they had felt no pain when having broken bones set, that when wasted unto death they had been made whole, constituted a severe tax upon frail human credulity, yet they were believed.

At The Mother Church, First Reader William D. MoCrackan presided in the main auditorium; at the meeting in the Extension vestry, Willis F. Gross, the new President, officiated, and in the old Mother Church auditorium Mrs. Laura C. Conant, Second Reader at The Mother Church, presided. The other Readers were as follows: Mother Church vestry, Judge Septimus J. Hanna of Colorado Springs; Horticultural Hall (Exhibition Hall), Bicknell Young of Chicago; Horticultural Hall (Lecture Hall), Bliss Knapp of Boston; Jordan Hall, Edward A. Kimball of Chicago; Potter Hall, Rev. William P. McKenzie of Cambridge; Howe and Woolson Halls, Gilbert C. Carpenter of Providence; Chickering Hall, Rev. Irving C. Tomlinson of Concord, N. H.
