A large audience listened to the lecture by Mrs. Sue Harper Mims, of Atlanta, Ga., on the subject of Christian Science, at the Houston Opera House last evening [Sept. 13]. The lecturer was introduced by ex-Senator J. G. Johnston, who spoke in part as follows:—

Humanity at large is big enough and broad enough to listen, to hear, to investigate. We must ever admire the intelligent doubter, the one who doubts in order to consider, to reason, to understand; on the other hand, the one who doubts simply because he doubts, who questions merely to question, who disbelieves simply because he disbelieves, is never to be admired. If Christianity means anything, it means everything. It means everything or it means everything. It means everything or it means nothing. The depths of truth can only be measured when there is no sorrow, when there is no crime. Man's highest ideal must ever be to know and to understand the truth. If in all these ages mankind has seen but the glimmer of the great white Light, and Christian Science points the way to get under the arc and into the full glare of the great Light, then must we say: God speed Christian Science! The thinking world must ever be grateful to men and women everywhere who labor to make humanity brighter, happier, better.—The Daily Tribune.
