Strlekler. C. 8., a. member of tlte board of lectureship of the First Church of Christ Scientist, Boston, de livered a lecture on the subject of Christian Bclence at Poll's Theater this fterno0h The lecture, which was de livered under tho auspices ot the local Christian Science churches, attracted an trdlcnce vhlch completely filled the theater and was received with tho Kreatost Interest. Tho speaker was In troduced by Sonator Moses K. Clapp of Minnesota, In opening-his lecture, Mr, Strlekler asserted that it was uudenlablo that Christian Science had healed many side people, and. had brought about tho re reneratlon of many who were tho vic tims of Sin. AmcyiR Its membership V6 those who have been healed of In temperance, of co-called chronic and or ganic diseases, as well as of maladies at were acute or functional. It ImA Scaled others of sorrow, fear, unhafr s ncss, ahd similar diseased mental con ditions that often cause more suffering and distress than physical disorders. Cured Through Teachings. Continuing, he, said: "In-every case of Christian Science healing:, whether the disease was chronic or acute, phy sical or rricntaj, the euro was brought about without the use of 'hypnotism, mental suggestion, orugs. or .anv im lerlal means, and entirely through the application of tho spiritual and meta nIlJcal. teachings of Christian Science. Tho heallhg of the sick, however. Is not tho primary purpose or Christian science. According to the teachings of this science all sickness and disease re sult from error and falso belief, which are summarized as sin, anu when tho error of belief Is destroyed by tho truth which Christian Science imparts, tho disease disappears. Christian Science, therefore, teaches that the cause of all disease, and sin li mental, and not physical, and that both sin and disease may be cured by one and the same metaphysical process, namely, by the substitution of spiritual truth In place of error and false belief in the human consciousness. Truth Basis of Cure. "it is recorded in the eighth chapter of the Gospel of John that upon one occasion when Jesus was being harassed by the lawyers and theologians, who were plying him with questions and seeking to entrap him by his answers, he turned to a group of his followers, who were standing near, ana said to them; 'Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." In all of th Bible there Is no statement of greater Importance to mankind than this utterance of the Master. It pre scribes the remedy for every numan III. Knowledge of n thing must come through the mental and not through the physical; hence, according to the words of Jesus, manKind will be de-llvn-ed from sin, disease, and death, not by doctoring the physical, but by filling the mental with truth. If this state ment of Jesus was true. It follows by Irresistible logic that the enslaving con ditions from which humanity suffers must bo due to the belief of something which Is not true. In other worcK if the time Is ever to come, as Josus has declared that it will come, when the knowledge of the truth shall emanci pate humanity from Its bondage to sick ness, sin. unhapplness. poverty, old age and death, such results can only be brought about when the knowledge of the truth shall have displaced and de stroyed (out of human consciousness) the belief of that which Is not true. There Is no escape from this conclusion. What Church Does. "Christian Science shows that It is the effect produced by truth operating in tho human incntalltv, destroying supersti tion, false and vicious beliefs that must and wJU some day emancinate mankind from bondage to sin. disease, and death. "Christian Science, therefore, pleads for a rational and demonstrable, under standing of God In njace of theoretical and speculative beliefs about Him." The lecture will be repeated at 8 o'clock Monday evening at Klrst Church of Christ. Scientist. Columbia road and I'.uclld street.

NEW YORK, Dec. IG.-Holland's busi ness conditions arc almost au exact duplicate of those In the United States, In thc30 piping war tinfes. according to J. Bendien, of Amsterdam, who has come to America as a delegate frojn tho American R.pcrt Chamber of Com merce In Amsterdam, Holland, with u plan for Interesting American merchants in the establishment of an American commercial Information bureau In Europe, preferably In one ot Holland .1 two leading commercial cities. "The shipbuilding yards of my coun try," said Hondlen at the Hotel Mc Alpln, "arc so crowded with orders for ocean-going vessels that It they stopped getting ordeis today It would taks every foot of their building, space and every man they could employ up to the end of 1917 to take cure of the orders now on their books. And yet there Is no sign ot a -let-dp In new contracts that are b"lng made. Hollnnd ship own ers arc the largest contractors for theo now ships, and next to my own coun trymen the Norwegians arc the heaviest investors In new tonnage. Greater Demand With Peace. It Is evident peace conditions will bring about an even greater demand fot ships than existed" before the war, tind with their customary foresight and thrift the Dutvh shipowners are getting: ready to take care of this fu ture demand fdr novo ships and still more ships. It is a kind of 'prepared ness' iut3l merchants have been fa mous for since thy first engnpcd In trade with the Far East. "The te:lltes Industries of Holland, particularly cotton and woolen man ufactures, are aUo turning out an cnorrrouo quantity of good. The pa per mills ar unusually busy, so are the match actoilep, and tho'ic mak inar glassware, shes, end paints. "lhe herring; fisheries have grown to be an unusually Important factor in the Industrial life of Holland owing to tho enormous demand forherrlngs as food on the part of some of the belligerent countries. In fart the de mand for herrings has. grown to such proportions that the price of the flsh has risen BO per cent over tho average price before tho war broke out and th government lias hnd to take con trol of the prod.iet to h; otrnt of keeping a certain portion of the catch In Holland as food for the peonle nnd regulating the price of the fish for domestic consumption. Diamond Trade Slumps. "There are only two Industries un favorably affected by the war. These are the diamond trade of Amsterdam, which Is In a very poor condition, and the liquor business. I have noticed, however, that lately America has be gun to buy more diamonds from Am sterdam, ana it would seem there was a chance the trade, which Is no Im portant to Amsterdam, would pick up again. The Holland gin trade, on the other hand. Is not flourishing and there seems to be little Improvement for It in sight. "One particularly happy result of this Industrial prosperity In my coun try Is the opportunity It affords us to handle the Belgian refuges question In a practical way. The hunJreds o? thousands of Belgians who poured across our frontier after the fall of Antwerp were first taken care of In detention camps, military fashion. But we soon saw that was not a very practical and certainly not a very helpful solution of the problem. Put Belgians to .York. "Since our Industiles began to be so busy we employed everv one of these refugees that we could according to the trade they were practiced in. and the result Is that they are not only happier for the change from the refugee camps, but are also helping themselves and helping us. It Is astonishing the change in the condition of these unhappy people since they wpre given the opportunity by Dutch manufacturers to go to wjrk. "Holland's agriculture.) produces are always her great asset and everything sho grows and makes from the products of the soil is In great demand, particu larly such things as cheese and veget ables. Owing to the demand prices have risen, of course, eggs being now about 120 per cent more costly than they were before the war. We are selling an enor mous, amount of oleomargarine to the belligerent countries. "It seems, in this war. all Industries revolve around the shipping question, or get back to it In the end. In my cwtsU try. at least, there is no one single line of capital that is making as much money as the Dutch ship owning companies. Their profits are growing all the time." Bendien will spend three weeks In the United States making addresses before commercial Institutions regarding his plan for establishing an American com mercial information bureau In Holland.
