Bicknell Young of Chicago, who lectured upon Christian Science Saturday, Nov. 10, at the Opera House, was introduced by Rev. F. C. Fay, who said,—

It gives me great pleasure to be here this evening for the purpose of introducing the lecturer, Mr. Young. While I am a Methodist and expect to be, I see, however, the time coming when I expect to join the Baptists, the Presbyterians, and also with the followers of Christ who are Christian Scientists, around the throne of our common Christ, because every honest interpretation of the Word of God will blend into that of every other like interpretation. We do not all see things alike now, because "we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face." I love the Christian Scientists because of what they do. They tell us not to worry; not to look at evil; to magnify the right and not the wrong; to think of the things that are good, just, pure, of good report, honest, and true, as the great apostle has exhorted us. Your mission is to scatter sunshine and to drive away the shadows. We do not do as the disciples did,—forbid you because you follow not with us; for the world is big, broad, and bad, and "he that is not against us is on our part." Your plan of overcoming evil with good is God's way, and every effort for the right is a part of the great battle in which we are all engaged. Correspondence.
