Bicknell Young, C.S.B., of London, England, a member of the Christian Science board of lectureship, delivered the semiannual lecture on Christian Science, under the auspices of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Mass., before an audience of about five thousand people, in the church edifice at Falmouth, Norway, and St. Paul streets, Monday evening [May 9]. His subject was "Christian Science: The Power of Good over Evil." The speaker was introduced by Judge Clifford P. Smith, First Reader of The Mother Church, who said,—

These lectures are given chiefly for the benefit of those who are just becoming interested in the religion represented by this church. To them I would say only a word. Christian Science is a subject of which no man can afford to be ignorant. You may have heard of this Science, either from those who disputed it or from those who favored it, without obtaining much actual information. The lecturer who will be heard here tonight stands upon this vantageground: he has devoted an adequate time to the study and practice of this Science; his work as a practitioner and teacher has been followed by satisfactory results in the lives of others; he has put this Science to good use in his own life, and he speaks as one having a scientific and practical understanding of his subject. For these reasons I value the privilege of introducing Bicknell Young, formerly of Chicago, but now of London, who will address you.—The Christian Science Monitor.
