Dr. James L. Parsons Subject: THE NEW THOUGHT. figure Under the Management of The Interstate Lecture Bureau CINCINNATI: 610 Neave Building. CHICAGO: 609 Steinway Hall. DR. JAMES L. PARSONS' Thoughtful Lectures Subject: The New Thought T HE progress of human thought and achievement in the last century have been so marvelous that, on the one hand, it seems impossible now to achieve anything new; and, on the other hand, the public is ready to believe any achievement actually reached as credible. The attainments reached by men of genius in the applications of electricity and the high degrees of progress reached along every line of human endeavor have, in these latter days, stimulated to even unheard-of ambitions. It is not strange, therefore, that the agent who has achieved this wonderful stage of progress—man himself—should now be studied as himself a phenomenon, and all the power of thought turned upon him. This is Dr. Parsons' field. He has for years made a study of the resources, the possibilities, the modus vivendi of man himself, and his lecture The New Thought deals with the origin, creation and conservation of human energy and the application of that energy to the highest possible development of mankind. It is a great subject, dealt with in a noble manner by an accomplished student and a dignified, powerful orator. Every audience to which he speaks feels complimented in being offered such quality of thought in such a dignified and superb manner, which is in high contrast to the lectures frequently—nay, almost universally—offered by the latter-day lyceum lecturer. Dr. Parsons occupies a field by himself and one which should appeal in this day to all the people. Dr. J. L. Parsons' lecture in this city was grand. From the first word to the close, an hour and a half later, there was the most profound attention. As a literary production the lecture is a model. Its delivery was of the best.— St. Louis (Mo.) Chronicle. We could have sat in one position all night and listened to him.— Glouster (O.) Gazette. He held the close attention of his audience for over an hour and a quarter.— El Paso (Ill.) Journal. The lecture by Dr. J. L. Parsons was an intellectual treat rarely to be met with. For an hour and a half the speaker held the audience spell-bound. Dr. Parsons more than sustained his reputation as a lecturer, and the subject was presented in a masterly manner, many afterwards expressing themselves that they could have remained all night to listen to the words of the eloquent speaker.— South Bend (Ind.) Daily Tribune. Dr. Parsons' lecture last night was a great success. He has made himself very popular in our city.— Bellaire, (O). Independent. The lecture on 'The New Thought,' by Dr. J. L. Parsons, stirred his auditors. It was his first appearance in this section and we hope we may have the pleasure of hearing him again very soon.— Attica (O.) Journal. Dr. Parsons gave a splendid lecture. He is a brilliant speaker, and his style of oratory is the kind that enthuses an audience.— Toledo (O.) Blade. Dr. J. L. Parsons' lecture was most enthusiastically received. Dr. Parsons made decidedly a most pronounced hit, and so delighted were his hearers that they have asked him to return again this season. His lecture was absolutely new and is being talked of by every one. He captivated his audience at the start and held them spell-bound.— Sandusky (O.) Register.
