A LECTURE ON EMERSON The Young People's Guild of Knox church, met in the basement of the church last evening, and enjoyed a splendid talk as he called Mr. Broadley, on Ralph Waldo Emerson. Mr. Broadley showed a familiar acquaintance with his sub- ject, which is evidently a favorite of his. He gave a sketchy picture of Emerson's life from the beginning, followed him through life, showing the effect of environment, and early teaching upon his later years, and brought many interesting arguments and authorities in support, of Emer- j .son's Unitarian preaching. The Guild! can only benefit by such papers as Mr. Broadley gave, and the discus- sion which followed, and Mr. Gordon echoed Hie wishes of all, in 'thanking IJMr. Broadley, and hoping that a real interest may be awakened in literary only those which are, as it were, made to order, for our own particular line of thought.
