' -By order of the'Commission, (Signed)  ANDREW A. HIGHLANDS, . - , Secretary  (Copy)  A LECTURE  r." on  CHRISTIAN SCIENCE  By  EZRA W. PALMER, C. S. B.  Member of the Board of Lectureship  of Thp Mother Church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass.  Entitled CHRISTIAN SCIENCE: THE SCIENCE QF OMNIPOTENT MIND CHRIST JESUS The great exponent of the omnipotence of God was Christ Jesus. By reason of ¡his sinless birth and son-Bhip with the Father, he knew, and expressed the will of God. The re- ] ligious systems of his day claimed to \ teach the true worship of God. But ■ these systems produced no results to prove their unity with the Father. I Jesus not only knew the power of | God—he proved that what claimed to , bt, rea' thr' evidence'of tho cor- j porea' les vas not real but illu-  1  sic3.' ..a reversed  + he false claim .'• that ni: er has life, intelligence, or power, either to injure or bless mar kind. The false, carnal mental!» wltfch St. Paul declared was "en against God," Jesus stripped of pieteace and characterized it as "a liar and, the father of it." He never ' taught that'God created matter, or ■ that pod was in any way responsible for sinf sickness or death. On the  1  contrary, he exposed the unreal basi3 | of tliese errors and destroyed' them through the might of Mind.  Refening to the universality of divine grace Jesus said: "Before Abraham was I am." In other words, 'the. Christ is the ever-present manifestation of God, forever ready to heal and save. The patriarchs and propheta proved the ever presence of the Christ, the Messiah, the Redeemer. Moses smote the rock in the wilderness and a fountain gushed forth. Elijah restored to life the widow's son: Ellsha healed Naaman, the Syrian captain; fhe Hebrew captives -were preserved in the fiery furnace; Daniel was safe in the lions' den. ' The Old Testament Is full of accounts of the saving power of God, thus proving the truth of the psalmist's tribute,—-"The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of tliem that truat in him shall be desolate."  THE APOSTt.ES AND EARLY ' CHRISTIANS When we turn to the New Testament we flijd that the twelve disciples went forth and.healed; the seventy did likewise. Paul, who was not at first a disciple, healed the sick and raised the dead. And 'for a long period of time—as great as that from the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth, Rock till the present day— the early Christians healed as a part of the work of the c!hurch. Contemporary -writers and historians corroborate the healing -work of the early Christians. Irenaeus assures us that all Christians possessed the power of healing; that they prophesied, oast out devils, healed, the sick, and sometimes raised, the dead. Practically every one of the early Christian writ-era from the time of Justin Martyr, for two hundred years, mentioned healing by prayer.  THE DISCOVERER AND FOUNDER OF CHRISTIAN SCIENCE  Christian Science was discovered by Mary Baker Eddy in the year 1866. Recovery from "an injury—the result of an accident—through the spiritual understanding of a passage in Matthew's goapel -was the falling apple which gave ' er the clue ;  to the un. foldment of divine, scientific Christianity. The time was propitious for a new spiritual advance of the race. A great war had just terminated which destroyed In this nation the bondage of human servitude. Great reformations ln.rellglon hqid tateh PjAce; the grip of hard and dogmatic ¡creeds was loosening; and the heart of humanity was being stirred by a, clearer sense of. tho Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. A more liberal spirit was permeating politics, literature and religion. Ideas of aocial service were taking form, and education of the masses had .become firmly established In the moro advanced civilized nations.  ' Mrs. Eddy was -well fitted for her great Vfork. Of Puritan ancestry 8ht> was reared in tlio. atmosphere of a Christian home. From childhood she had been deeply religious. Sho was a profound student of the Bible and meditated upon ItB truths. She had a knowledge ;of Greek and Hebrew. She had sounded the depths of scholastic 'theology and found It" inadequate to give the bread of life. She' had tested the various systems of medicine and healing and found them wanting^ She investigated spiritualism and hypnotism arid cast them aside, because they failed to enlighten the thought Sho hail been tried In the crucible of affliction, knew "tho poverty of mortal exlitence^-its gain's,  its falàe pleasures, its ilWaiona—and sjie lmow the hunger ot the human heart to know its God. i After her healing *' sho -withdrew from society for three yeftts, studied tho Scriptures, and searched for tlio scientific basis of Chtistlanlty. : In 1875 she gave to the world the textbook ot Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to tho Scrip-: turtie," a book which has done more to revolutionize the thoughts of men regarding tho truths of tha Bible than eny. other book that ha3 ever heeli rltt»»n. Referring ti> too Blbltcal basi* of tetf work, Mrs. Eddy said in Science and Health, p. 126, which I will read—  "I have get forth Christian Science and its application to the treatment of disease just as I have d'acovèred them, I have demonstrated through Mind 1  the effects of Truth on the health, longevity, afid morals of men; and 1 have found nothing In ancient or in modern systems on which to found my own, except tho teachings and demonstrations of our griéàt Master and the lives of prophets and apostles. The Bible has been my only authority. T have had no other guide in 'the _ 'aight and harrow -way' of Truth."  THE SCIENCE OF MIND The sojence of Mind which Mrs. Ed / taught in Science and Health Is ie science of taowlng Truth. It is the Sclenco Jesus meant when he àald: "ye eh&U know the truth, and the truth shall mako you free." How can we know tho truth except through» thought? If/we can ltnow truth only through thought then truth? itself must have its source in Mind. The Scriptures teach via to know God, to love Him, and to obey Him. How can we follow these commands except through consciousness? The Scriptures teach that man was born of God, that all the marvels of the universe -were created by Him. How are. these marvels possible except we grant that God is supreme Mind? Mind ia the source, the origin of all Intel-: Hgence. aU law, all ordejv Mind is Life, the creator ot all tho manifestations of life, and these manifestations are the ideas of God. Therefore, God and Hds creation dwell in the heaven of Mind.  SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE ESSENTIAL Why, one may ask, is it necessary to gain this science, of knowing Truth? Isn't one religious belief as good as another so long as the indlv-dual is honest and sincere in holding it?- -Beyond question some religious beliefs are better than others and a genuine test of any religious belief ip, How much of the spirit of Christ does it inculcate? Aie its believers better, purer, healthier, hblier for it? Tho final and supreme teat of any religious belief is, Does It crown Ita work by destroying sin, disease* want and mortality? If not, théi'- that belief must of necessity give place to a better knowledge of God which does accomplish this result. 'So fight I," said Paul, "not as one that beateth the air," and this is the distinguishing characteristic of Christian Science. It doesn't beat the empty air, bpt teaches Its adherents how to fight andi win the prize of spiritual mastery "against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Isn't exact knowledge necessary to gain success in every walk of life? Why then this haziness about religion and this: current comment that - one religious belief is as good as another? ,  The Science  :  of Mind : must be gained to " attain' spiritual dominion-over the flesh and all carnality, an<? the prize is worth the. effort. To prove, for instance,:that health is not something that can be lost, but ig a Spiritual 'quality,' Imperishable - and perfect, synonymous vltli' purity, holiness and harmony—Isn't . that truly worth while? 'Many thousands have given their earthly all fof health and have not found' it, because they have not looked to God for 1t.> And yet, health is the gift or God, free as the air of heaven, -within the reach o wf-ery honest ¡man: who will strive, as St'. Paul declared, to ??be- strong- III the Lord, and to the power of his might" -  BELIEF VERSUS UNDERSTANDING The student of Christian Science learns to know and rely 'iyion spiritual law, the iaw of good'. tìy'repeated tests he proves this law and makes it applicable, to all the 'affairs of hi\ dally life. 'He discovers that bacìe of spiritual law is thè omnipotence ot God whlòh renders thla'làw Irresistible in operation. One of his first discoveries is to distinguish between' ttfe operation of spiritual law and the false* action of human beliefs'. Following the leadings of spiritual law, 'he continually rises in conscious knowledge of God and His Ways, and constantly adds to his fe'ndu'rlrig riches of gladness, peace,  i me'ófeiiéas'and''lovè. Httnian beliefs have ho'enduring basis. They are inérèly the merchandise ®bf unstable human opinions.

My dear Sin-  No question looips larger In these, war times than that of food supply of our people and for a variety of causes, particularly those of shortage of labor we face a serious phortage Which can only bo avoided If strenuous efforts are made to increase production on our farms and gardens. To help meet this need the Concord Committee on Public Safety have appointed a Sub Committee on Production and Conservation of Food Supply who wiil work along the following lines.  Thr Important question being  that v . our first effort will be  given to .aiivabsing all possible local sources of supply and to aid farms and gardens in every possible way In finding labor. The Committee is al-eo prepared to assist by every means in Its power all those desiring homo gardens this year hut who perhaps laclc either land or experience. This Commltteo most strongly urges tho production of such staple food crops eorn; potatoes 1  and winter roota rather than of vegetables and it is at the service of any ope who may experience difficulty in obtaining either seed or fertilizer. Headquarters of the Committee have been established In the Ripley school building where regular office hours will bo keijt Monday, Wednesday and Saturday mornings, some one of the Committer being present. Do not hesitate to address the Committee if In heed of advice or assistance. That is what we are here for.  The followin& call fbr labor has already been mailed to the residents of Concord.  Very, truly yours, Henry B. Bigelow,  Vice Chairman.  IS KNOWN HERE  Hon. R. A. Pearson Appointed Assistant Secretary of Agriculture  Hon. R. A. Pearson, president of the Iowa State College of Agriculture, whom Secretary of Agriculture Houston has appointed to be assistant secretary of agriculture, Is of New England ancestry. He is a brother of E. J. Pearson, vice president of the New Haven road, and Mrp. Robert L. Warner of this town. '  1   While Mr. Pearson is a comparatively young man, he has enjoyed an exceptional training and experience in his line. Graduating at Cornell university in 1894, he was soon afterward appointed assistant chief of tho dairy division of the bureau of animal industry in the department of agriculture, at Washington. Two years later he became general manager of th? Walker-Gordon laboratory companies, and subsequently was appointed by Gov. Hughes "to be commissioner of agriculture of New York State.  As president of the Iowa State College of Agriculture, the largest agricultural' college in the world, he has during recent years very greatly enlarged the activities and usefulness of that institution, and has obtained the highest recognition as an ^authority on soil chemistry and practical intensive agriculture.  Mr. Pearson brings to his new position at this critical time, a wealth of technical knowledge and practical training, which hi® friends believe will .prpye to be of the greatest advantage to the department at a time of its greatest need.
