Virgil O. Strickler lectured on Christian Science in Woodman hall, and also in First Church edifice. F. C. Putcamp, first reader of Fourth church, in introducing Mr. Strickler at the second lecture, spoke as follows:—

About nineteen centuries ago there was proclaimed to the world the birth of a Saviour; a Saviour who had been prophesied, looked for, and promised; one who would bring to mortals a new concept of God, a new gospel,—the gospel of love. He came teaching that God is Spirit, Life, Truth, Love; that God is All-in-all, and that man is created in God's image and likeness. And as Jesus went from place to place, teaching these truths about God and man, he proved by his works that his doctrine was of God. To the man blind from his birth he declared this gospel of live. and the man's eyes were opened. When the man sick of the palsy was brought before him, Jesus said unto him, "Arise, take up thy bed and go into thine house." As Jesus stood at the tomb of Lazarus he lifted up his eyes and said: "Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always;" and then with a loud voice he commanded him that was dead to come forth.

Jesus told his disciples that this healing power had not been given to him alone, but that they through the understanding of his teaching would be able to do the same works that he did, and for three hundred years after Jesus' earthly mission was ended, wherever this gospel of love was preached, it was accompanied with healing power. For the last quarter of a century this healing power of Truth and Love, as found in the Scriptures, has again been proclaimed to mortals, and to the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy we owe its rediscovery. Through the study of the Bible, as interpreted by the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, the sick are being healed, the sorrowing comforted, and the sinning reformed.—Denver Times.
