Before a large and deeply interested audience Virgil O. Strickler delivered at the First Baptist church the first Christian Science lecture ever given in this city. The lecture was under the auspices of the local Christian Science society, and the speaker was introduced by J. Heaton Kirchner, editor of the Mahanoy Tribune, who said in part,—

I have been asked to introduce the speaker of the evening, and it is with great pleasure that I do so; and because I am a member of another church, I consider the request an honor. I am not here to what I believe or what I do not believe, but on behalf of the Christian Science society of Mahanoy City I extend to you a sincere welcome to this their first public lecture. To those present who have been lifted out of doubt or grief or have been physically healed through this doctrine, it is not new. To those who have not received any such benefits it is intended to give a logical and rational explanation of life its perplexities; and I am glad for the occasion which brings us together this evening, because I believer that from whatever religious faith we come, we should be liberal enough to come together as friends who should know each other better.—Correspondence.
