Bicknell Young lectured at the Lyceum Theater here on Christian Science, Oct. 29. He was introduced by G. T. Fitzhugh, who said in part,—

It has been said that all truth is like the parallel tracks of a railway, which lead to the same place but never cross each other. So if we be genuine seekers after truth there can be no real conflict between us, however different the paths which we pursue. To the great body of truth-seekers belong that army of cultured Christian citizens who have adopted the Christian Science faith. They are unwilling to remain always in the valley where men strive solely for the material and ephemeral things of life, but insist on climbing the hill-tops of knowledge, where above the broad and breezy sweep of earth the stars shimmer and the heavens open. They seek to scale the mountains of truth, whose lofty peaks, rising above the clouds of ignorance, prejudice, superstition, and doubt, are the first to catch the resplendent and dazzling scintillations from the divine orb, sparks of fervent heat, as well as radiant light, with power to enkindle the common mass of humankind.
