THE LECTURES

A lecture on Christian Science was delivered at the Majestic Theater Oct. 6, by Frank H. Leonard. He was introduced by Judge J. L. Van Derwerker, who said,—

Christian Science appeals to the wide-awake men and women of today, because it is a religion of success. It proclaims emancipation to those enthralled in the bondage of fear; it strengthens the weak, and restores the sick and disabled to health; it turns the distress of poverty into the happiness of prosperity. Its beneficent power enters the cottages of the poor and the palaces of the rich; and its fruits therein are plenty and harmony, health and happiness. Language is responding to its influence, and the word "incurable" is in a way to become obsolete; it is transforming "hopeless" into "hopeful," "failure" into "success;" and into kindliness, friendliness, and love it is infusing a wonderful activity. This is a Christianity that the practical business man carries into his home and business; for it transforms its students from fear, worry, sickness, and trouble, to freedom, happiness, health, and prosperity. It appreciates the self-sacrificing endeavor of the conscientious medical practitioner, and it kindly invites his consideration of the better way discovered by Mrs. Eddy. To hostile attack Christian Science turns the other cheek, and erects another church.
