The large auditorium of First Church of Christ, Scientist, corner of Monroe Street and Lawrence Avenue, was crowded yesterday afternoon and evening [Oct. 6] when Hon. Clarence A. Buskirk of St. Louis, Mo., who was for four years attorney general of Indiana, lectured on Christian Science. Judge Buskirk was introduced by Mr. Mark Kuehn, First Reader of the local church, who said in part,—

The many persistent though unsuccessful efforts that have been made, during the past few months especially, to misrepresent to the public the Cause of Christian Science and its revered and honored Leader, the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, together with numerous articles and editorials which, as a result, have appeared in the various newspapers and magazines of the country, have aroused unusual interest in this primitive Christian religion, which is drawing into its ranks men and women from all walks of life. It is the earnest desire of this Church that the public be given every opportunity of learning the truth about this religion. With this in view The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., some years ago provided a Board of Lectureship, chiefly for the purpose of affording all a better understanding of the Principle and tenets of Christian Science.

The Mother Church in Boston, Mass., now has over forty-six thousand members. Altogether the denomination has over one thousand churches and societies who hold religious services each week.
