NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER, MOXDAT JANUARY 21 130 I tests The . 1 ON CHRISTIAN SCIENCE. LECTURE AT 11HPERION TES ' TEUDAT AFTERNOON. Address by the Rev. S. F. Slmonst'ii ; Rev. William P. McKenzle, C. S. B., ; of CninbrldKC, Speaks on "( hrlNlllin , Science or Dellvernnce From Evil." The Rev, William P. MeKenzle of Cambridge, Mass., delivered a very in teresting lecture on Christian Science ,at the Hyperion theater yesterday aft , ernoon, under the auspices of the Sec ond Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city. He was introduced by the Rev. Mr. iSimonsen, who spoke as follows: ' ladies and Gentlemen: On 'behalf of fhe Second Church of Christ, Scientist, of this city, I welcome you to this lec- s ture on Christian Science. I remem ber when I was a mere lad, sitting by my father's side, reading the new tes tament to him, how I wondered, and finally asked him why people were not healed to-day of their sickness as they were in the time of Christ. He replied, that it was taught and generally be lieved that the time of healing the sick in Christ's way was past, but he said that he could not see that there was any ground for , such, a .conclusion as .thisv For "he believed that God's prom ises, and Christ's command to his dis ciples and their successors stood for all time, i. e., as long as there was any sickness to be healed. After finishing school in this coun try I went to Europe to study. I hoped to find some one there who could point out the way in which Jesus healed the sick, for my heart yearned to help the sick and suffering, but I found no one. There was, however, a man in north ern Europe, who did seem to help a few people to get well through pray er,' but on investigation I found that he' knew nothing vf any underlying or unerring principle. It was simply a case of blind faith, without under standing. I returned to this country, and took up the active work in the ministry in the Methodist 'Episcopal church, but I broke down in the first year, right in the midst of preaching the gospel as it is generally preached, but I can see now that I only preach- . ed salvation from sin, an 1 not from sickness and suffering as did our Mas ter and his disciples. I continued to grow worse and worse, with now and thpn a IHHp r-pllpf hut in mV fourth year in the ministry I broke down com pletely and had to stop all work. I prayed to God to heal me, and took my l medicine regularly, and finally I got where every doctor I consulted told me that I could not 'be healed, and that I would live two or three months, a year at the longest. At this critical pMnt in my life Chris tian Science was brought to my at tention, and as I have a relative who kt a physician, I asked him if he knew anything about Christian Science, and if he thought that there was anything In it. He smiled rather pitifully at me, and assured me that here was nothing In it; so I went on praying, taking my medicine a little longer until a mem ber of my church talked with me on the subject. She said, "Xou know Mrs. IR.( and what a helpless invalid she was a year ago, when you called upon her; paralysed in one arm ani limb?" I said, "Yes, I remenrber her well." Then ghe went on and told me how this lR.dy ' had been healed through Christian Science, and that she had been in Bos ton, and studied Christian 'Science, and had returned to her home in La Crosse, dnd was healing people through the . understanding of this science. Then she wanted to know if I would not try It. . I said, '.'No; I do not want to have anything to do with it. I have ho money to throw away for such things.'" She said no more until two weeks later, when she again broach ed the subject to me. Then I was so much worse that I was willing to try anything, and I began treatment, and In less than three weeks I was a per fectly well - man. That was twenty years ago last summer, and I have been well ever since, except I had a severe attack of scarlet fever, but Christian Science healed me of that dreaded disease in a few days. After I was healed I took up the rftudy of Christian Science, and found that Christian Science healing rested upon the one omnipoten principle God. It appealed to me strongly, but I could not seem to be able to give up my false theological views, which I had been taught to believe were true; Always .Remember the n nmbs axaove eiromo umwQ Cures a Cold in One Day, Crip ia 2 Dai's Fji 61 HOWE & STETSON'S Tuesday, Jan, 22, Howe & Stetson so I kept on preaching for a numbei of years, but I also kept on reading Christian Science literature, and watching the great and permanent work done through this church, lae more I saw the effect of this teach ing and understood the principle underlying the whole, I c.iuld readily see how it was that those who became Scientists stood so firm, steadfast ani loyal to the ' whole : gospel of Jesus Christ. I noted, too, that there was no lack of undeniable proof of the power Chrustian Science to heal all man ner of sickness. I was in an awful ly embarrassing position, for I knew something of the power of this new yet old gospel, for it had not only healed me physically but it had brought me a spiritual illumination and an un derstanding of God and man the like of which I had never experienced be fore. 'My heart ached, and yearned to tell the sick and the dying of this blessed truih, but my experience taught me that I could nt do this as long as I was a Methodist preacher. So I took up the studyt of Christian Science in a different spirit than be fore, t-3t God had revelled to me by this time that T had been ' prejudiced against the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, ; the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, and tnat I could not be a true follower of Christ, and be prejudiced against any one, and par ticularly .one who had done me no harm, and whose teaching. had brougjit me only.' life, health, strength,; and a higher understating of God and man. After taking class instruction In Christian Science I found myself face to face with three serious questions. (1) Oould 1 accept the teachings of Mrs.. Eddy as the truth. (2) Could I face 'the. ridicule that would naturally be heaped upon one wno would step out of the Methodist nolnistry, and join the ranks of the Christian Scientists? (3) Could I trust God to supply myself and family (we were nine In all) with the necessities of life? When I finally came to the point where I could an swer the first question in the affirma tive, and without hesitancy or any re serve, I found it comparatively easy to answer the other two in the same way. At once I resigned from the min istry and membership in the, Method ist Episcopal church, and took my stand for Christian Science. It was in the dead of" winter, and without any money, and I was in debt besides, but I did It, and God sustained me, and I have never regretted it for one single instant. And now after years of ac tive work in the cause of Christian Science, I can truthfully say that its principle is absolute, unerring. It has been my good fortune to personally meet and talk with Mrs. Eddy, I have met many of the recognized leaders in the religious world, both in this coun try and in .Europe, but I fim free to say to you that I have never met any one who to my mind reflected so much of the spirit of Christ as does Mrs. Eddy. Her spirit of humility and un ceasing1 love for the salvation of man kind from sin and all the ills that flesh is heir to is to me marvelous. I now take pleasure In introducing to you Rev. William P. MacKenzle, C. S. B., of Cambridge, Mass., member of the board of lectureship of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, 'Massachusetts. Rev. William P. MacKenzle spoke at great length, taking as his theme "Christian- Science, or Deliverance from Evil." In part he said: Christian Science comes to give sub stance to the good that many have hitherto hoped for. , The experience of impending good, Which has been cher ished by some already In regard to Christian Science) we hope to satisfy by showing It to be the true Christianity, and so is foundtd on the teachings of the Bible. Mr. MacKenzle then went on to speak of Chrintlan Science and what Mary Baker Eddy had done for it. He said she was now known to the world as the woman who has given to this age the true God, and. as the philos opher and thinker who has revolution ized the sense of Christianity from the oretical to practical so that the mediae val belief of Christianity as a scheme for future world salvation is changing to the primitive conception of Christi anity as a means for revealing to men on earth the goodness of God in heal ing and salvation. Mrs. Eddy's desire, Dr. MacKenzie said, was to discover the science of the Christ healing so that the spiritual illumination which had quickened hrr own life might be marie universal Christian- Science, he said, although founded on the Bible, did not come to 8,MA en every y7Pf& box. 23c Co. establish a.new sect. A sect was some thing cut off or divided, he maintained. But Christianity is not in itself divided, so that Christianity, depending upon the proof of healing instead of argu ment, is a complete and perfect system or science. It is based upon perfect principle, because God is that principle, and when it is understood the prophecy of Jesus will be fulfilled and there shall be one fold and one shepherd. Christ Jesus, he said, was the Master they ac knowledged in Christian Science, be cause He gained the mastery in truth. Christian Scientists, by virtue' of their experience, wire confirmed optimists. They had seen healing accomplished where human love and human skill had given up all hope. They had seen ap parently incurable bad habits changed. They had seen bitterness and cynicism and cruelty melt away, and kidness and joy and gentle courtesy take its place. Speaking of hereditism, he said, with regard to this vexed question, that we can surely say, "It the son, therefore, shall make, you free, ye shall be free Indeed. If in fellowship frith the Son of God you learn your own sonshlp, you will recognize your Individual free dom as a child of God, governed direct ly by the mind." Christian Science maintains that the eternal principle underlying all reality Is God. Does any one naturally con ceive of this principle as being mani fested in any condition which is admit tedly adverse to God? Can a condition entitled "a murderer from the beglr. ning" or "a liar and the father of It' be expressive of God's nature or be the ageYit of God's will? We must be care ful, then, about accepting philosophies which make evil the agent of good, or give evil an equivalent existence with deity. Christian Science deals successfully with sin as with sickness, healing both conditions of distress, overcoming; mor al evil with spiritual good. Men fall Into sin because they seek for good from a wrong basis. Christian Science shows that what Is good comes from God primarily and that men need not hurt nor destroy other men In order to li pi) '"nil. It reveals the tact that (rood comes according to inflexible principle, vuiiugpieiw trotu age to age, ever pro viding blessedness for the pure, the honust, the chaste, the truthful, the lov ing. Mr. Mackenzie then wont on to speak of its Importance in regard to faith and love, concluding as follows: We have not spoken of the rapid progress of the movement. This la a matter of history. We have not referred to the multitudes, already healed. You may learn of these cases In the testi mony meetings, or from the pages tf our periodicals. Hut something remains to lie said about the leader of the Christian Science movement, since It is above all things important to know her aright, and to understand her mission and service to mankind, Let nothing prevent you from understanding that among the benefactors of the race, Mrs. Eddy Is the best friend you have. Her selfless consecration enabled her to dis cern divine science, and her love for hu manity Impelled her to demonstrate It in .healing the sick and to teach It. The text book, Science and Health, teaches the universal truth, ' but her other writings make us acquainted with the author,, who has taught by example as much as by precept; the parth's best blessing in the inspiration given by a holy life. In ancient Jerusalem they stoned the prophets, and also in later times men have assailed with brute un refison those who exemplified good. Per haps you have heard the clamor of mis representation regarding Mrs. Eddy; If so, what do you think of her patience for well night forty years, during which she has shown her love and good will to those who were malignant in their self-inspired hatred? 1 do not know of one hitter word sjioi.t.i In r sentnient against persecutors, and any one can Uuuei'stand that only the rule of "tlni same mind which was also in Christ Jesus," enables a human being not to revile again when reviled, but to do f?ood to those that hate, if to the Un thankful and hostile she is unkind, tucn where the flow of good Will is unob structed it becomes to the appreciative an Inspiration as they see the beauty of Christian character unfolded. ' )Tlie purpose to love is to make its object lovable. Mrs. Kddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science, expresses this sense of love universally, with the evident desire that all mankind may be taught to express man's best nature in the likeness of God, who Is Tove. Those who know her best know the trust worthiness of her motives, the Integri ty of her alms, and the tlreles Indus try of her life. When others become awake to influences by which they have been blessed, they will appreciate and love the one who has been the patient servant and friend of man, and will ''rise up and call her blessed."

SNEATH PREACUtS X STRONG SERMON Circular Given Out at East Fenrl Street 51. E. Church Calling; Attention to Se rles of Union Evangelistlcal Services Annual Entertainment and Dnnce of East Rock Council, F. B. L., Thurs day Ladles' Aid Society of Grand Avenue Baptist Church to Give Sup erFuneral of Frederick A. Fnrr Largely Attended. Rev. Dr. Sneath of the Grand' Ave nue Congregational church and Rev. Charles G. Smith of the Grand avenue Baptist church preached in exchange yesterday morning. At the Baptist church there, was a large congregation considering the unfavorable weather, and Dr. . Sneath preached a very strong evangelical sermon from the text "Wilt thou not revive us asain, that they people may rejoice in thee?" Dr. Sneath said that. with all due' de ference to the views of Prof. Kent of Yale university, who recently express ed himself to the effect that the time is near at hand when the Sunday hioming service will be devoted to Biblical study, Instead of the preaching service, he believed that there was another need; that it was not all edu cation and religion that was needed, but it was education and exhortation and inspiration and teaching. . "Men and women of to-day know enough to make a decision for God," said Dr. Sneath. ''But there is need for a mighty impulsion in the direction of leading them to Christ. There is work to do in Impressing on the feel ings of man just the same as upon the Intellect. "Them there Is need for the transmis sion of spiritual power," said .the preacher. "While I believe that the church has made progress in forty years, yet there has been a large amount of latent spiritual power in the church unused. In this age where there Is so much materialistic teaching, there is need for the church to be giv ing out from its spiritual power. The duty is to give out, and then the more we receive. There ought to be more sacrifice for. others. Then there Is the injunction to go and to preach the posael. "How shall the church transmit this spiritual power? There is the home missions the foreign missions, the Sun day school, the preaching of the word and the prayer meeting. But there is the need for more of the evangelistlcal agency. There Is a great need for prayer to-dajn-a greater need In the church than for .many years. Ono great' English writer has said: "The forgotten secret of this age is prayer. Jesus was a man of prayer and the early Christian church was born In prayer. "Then there should be recognition of the, need of a more evangelical minis try." There are time when the evan gelistic sermoti must be preached The need of personal work Is also appar ent and essential. And the pastor can never succeed without the personal In fluence of the church. There Is the opportunity everywhere for - personal work. Tou can find In almost 'every street a broken heart that needs com fortneeding the consolation and the comfort of Jesus Christ, Many of the churches In New Haven are longing for a quickening and an awakening and some are working for it. It Is for us all to !iei " . In several of the chuohc yesterday mention was made of the stricken Is land of Jamaica, and the suffering In habitants wore remembered In the prayers. In the East Pearl street M. E. church yesterday there was circulated printed circulars calling attention to the ser vices of union evangelical services to be held this week by the twelve Metho dist. Churches of the city, It is referred to as the first effort of the kind at tempted by the denomination In this From Chicken-Pox jo Cholera Cure-Alls No Longer Tolerated In early days every barber shop was an operating room and the town physi cian resorted to bleeding as the sure cure for all ailments from chicken-pox to cholera. As a result, many, in cluding our first President, died pre maturely. The present low rate of mortality la due In large measure to the ad vances made In medical science and the knowledge of the specific treat ment needed for each disease known. There is no disease more common among American and English people than dyspepsia. : So' prevalent haa it becomo that thousands suffer with it half unconsciously, consider the symp toms as .natural to their physical con stitution and resign themselves to liv ing on in that condition. There is a remedy for dyspepsia, and oply one, recommended and endorsed generally by physicians: Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets have stood the test of years of use by millions of sufferers, have been subjected to governmental analyses In Europe and America and alone have been found to contain the elements which Nature has put Into the stomach for digestion pepsin, di astase and other ferments. . 'Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets relieve the stomach and bowels in a perfectly natural way by helping them do their work. If the stomach is weak in gas tric juice, Stuart's Tablets make up the deficiency. If the muscles are In active, Stuart's Tablets invigorate them. Stuart'e Dyspepsia Tablets di gest every form 'of food entering the stomach, one grain of the active prin ciple of these Tablets beng capable of digesting 3, ono grains of meat, eggs and .other foods. They are not cathar tic pills; their action is simply that of a digestive.
