In the presence of the largest audience that ever attended such a lecture in Fort Wayne, Judge William G. Ewing of Chicago delivered an interesting and eloquent address on the doctrines of Christian Science yesterday afternoon [Sept. 26] at the Majestic Theater. Probably a thousand people heard him. The Hon. J. B. Harper of this city presided. In introducing the speaker he said in part,—

This splendid audience is a tribute alike to the speaker and his theme. It indicates to my mind that you are interested in the subject and desire greater spiritual enlightenment. Nineteen hundred years ago, on that memorable morning in the temple when the people had gathered about him, the divine Master made this immortal statement: "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life." Ever since that time multitudes have followed him. Many have stumbled, because the light as they saw it was dim and uncertain; but that was not the fault of the light. As for myself, I might say that I do not know much about this subject with which the speaker will deal today, but like many of you I have drunk at its fountain and I know that it satisfies.
