No subject is demanding greater attention to-day than Christian Science. Tongues and pens are treating it on every hand. Throughout the world the discussion has gone and throughout the world it will continue to go. What is Christian Science, what has it done, and what are its future possibilities? This is the interrogation which so many people are asking. It is the question to which orthodox preachers, doctors, and all others are seeking an answer. Under the auspices of Second Church of Christ, Scientist, the Hon. William G. Ewing delivered a lecture at the Loring Theater last night [June 17] upon this subject. The effort was a masterly one and was listened to by a large audience made up of physicians, Scientists, and members of various churches. In these words, the Hon. Lyman Evans introduced the speaker of the evening:—

The marvelous tales of the Arabian Nights fade away before the realities of to-day. In the physical and metaphysical world alike wonders flash all about us. The great Paul made the exhortation, "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." To-night you will be favored with an address by a gentleman who has made a profound study of human life and its possibilities. I bespeak for the orator that considerate hearing which Riverside ever gives to those who labor the advancement and happiness of mankind by contributing an affirmative answer to the question of the ages: "If a man die, shall he live again?"—Riverside Press.
