At the lectures given by Bicknell Young in Ninth Church edifice, and in Lincoln hall, South Chicago, Almon Burtch, first reader, made the introductory remarks, and again in Ninth Church, Mrs. Annie M. Van Hoesen, second reader, introduced the speaker. Mr. Burtch said in part,—

To the Christian Scientist, the subject of Christian Science is an all-absorbing one; he has found that in the degree he applies the rules of this Science correctly to his affairs, they become more orderly, more harmonious. Christian Science is something that touches every phase of his being, the spiritual, the moral, the social, the financial, the physical, and by its touch it transforms. We who are Christian Scientists sometimes wonder why it is that the whole world is not as eager as we are to know more about Christian Science, but we are frequently brought face to face with the fact that although Christian Science was presented to the thought of mankind almost fifty years ago, there are still many persons who know nothing whatever of it and many others whose knowledge is very much in need of correction.
