Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (First Church).

Lecturer: Algernon Hervey-Bathurst; introduced by Mrs. Martha R. Porter, who said:—

Over twenty years ago I was a wreck, physically and mentally. I had sought the advice of many specialists, had traveled from one climate to another in search of health, but everywhere I was told there was no cure for me. Then a friend asked, "Why don't you try Christian Science?" I did so, and was healed. But as I progressed in the study of Christian Science, I learned that I had a responsibility: I could think along certain lines and refuse to think along certain other lines, and my body would show forth the quality of my thinking. I had been taught that disease was bound to come sooner or later. Doctors might help me, but there was nothing I could do but submit, be resigned. I had thought that I must try to keep my actions right. Christian Science taught me that I must also keep my thoughts right. Students of this truth are proving daily that Christian Science is from God; and as one writer has rightly put it, "It is to be lived and loved, and given to a starving world."
