An audience of fully three thousand persons gathered at Memorial Hall, March 15, to listen to the lecture of Bicknell Young of Chicago on Christian Science. The attendance, which was fully twice the size of any that ever listened to a lecture on the subject before in this city, was both a compliment to the speaker and an evidence of the large and growing interest felt in the Christian Science movement. Mr. Melville C. Spaulding introduced Mr. Young, and said in part,—

The very presence of this generous and appreciative audience is one proof of the growth and worth of a health system which has already prolonged the lives of more than a million people by filling both mind and body with the joy and strength of Truth and Love. But while we naturally desire and expect far greater results from this lecture, still if but one weary searcher for Truth shall here find a more hopeful and satisfying religious faith, or but one suffering family be shown a brighter and better way to health and happiness, contentment and true prosperity, our labors will not have been in vain.
