A lecture on Christian Science was delivered in Third Church (Simpson Auditorium), Sept. 10, by William R. Rathvon. He was introduced by F. E. Woodley, who said:—

"It is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." During ages past man has been believing the evidence of the material senses to be the truth, and matter to be substance, the foundation of his existence. In this belief man has not found the peace "which passeth all understanding," neither has he found harmony nor his God-given dominion; but he has found suffering, failure, sin, disease, and death.

The question therefore is, How may we rid ourselves of these discordant conditions, and have the good which God has provided for His people? Mrs. Eddy tells us in Science and Health (p. 296), "Suffering or Science must destroy all illusions regarding life and mind;" and as man does not desire to suffer, he is seeking for Science. We are gathered here this afternoon to learn of this Science and its Principle, — the truth that makes men free. And I know that we shall be greatly benefited by this opportunity of hearing an address on this subject. — Correspondence.
