The Lectures

Erie, Pa. (First Church).—When introducing A. Hervey-Bathurst, a Christian Science lecturer, A. E. Caldwell spoke as follows:—

The history of the human race is the story of a constant struggle to overcome the seeming limitations of human existence. Human frailty has impelled a constant search for freedom from disease and death, which some of the old explorers had hoped to find in a fabled "fountain of youth." And always there has been the striving for a better knowledge or understanding of the governing power or Principle of the universe.

The world progressed sometimes but slowly until the last century, which brought great advancement. It spanned the transition in travel from saddle and stagecoach to locomotive, automobile, and aeroplane; in communication, from word of mouth and personal messenger to the telephone and radio. The lightning which traveled down the string of Franklin's kite but little more than a century ago is the universal servant of to-day in workshop and home. But with all these things you are familiar. Moreover, these forces were always available, and awaited only some individual to grasp and make use of them.
