Figure DR. JAMES RUSSELL PRICE CHICAGO, ILL. THE MAN AND THE MESSAGE DR. JAMES RUSSELL PRICE, author, teacher, physician, scientist lecturer, was born on Prince Edward Island. As a pioneer farmer's boy he made the best use of his school privileges. He taught country school at the age of seventeen, earning money to pursue his further education in college. Dr. Price engaged in educational work for twenty-five years before entering into medical practice, and during this time was frequently in demand for lectures and entertainments. While a teacher he carefully recorded characteristics of precocious and feeble-minded children, interviewed their parents and found causes for idiosyncrasies which later experience as physician and surgeon verified. For several years he engaged in the White Cross, temperance and Y. M. C. A. work and was one of the early instructors of the now popular study of Eugenics. The Doctor's unique and pleasing personality, clear speaking voice, and highly moral nature, combined with his independent and scientific knowledge enable him to present original and vital seed thoughts in an interesting and effective manner. THE RECORDING ANGEL. A lecture full of surprises, giving the audience thrills of intellectual delight, while demonstrating Nature's wonderful ways of making records. God's amanuenses are never idle, never run out of pencils or materials. Many mysteries and superstitions are explained. You will learn how you are one of God's stenographers. EUGENICS, A NEW PARENTHOOD. A new parenthood, a better race is now in order. The mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms have received much attention. Conservation of mines and forests have received appropriations, while babes yet to be born are just being considered. They have a right to be born well. A school for fatherhood should be established. Parenthood must no longer be ignored. Ignorance is not innocence. Knowledge never fosters prudery. Boys can be taught true sex chivalry, which they naturally desire to manifest. Dangers of contamination should be known by both sexes to avoid contagion and promote a healthy race. Fathers and mothers, and those to become such, will find this a timely and valuable lecture. SCIENCE VERSUS PHILOSOPHY. Science versus Philosophy is a thought promoter. The age of theory and philosophy is passing. Science and reason with proved premises is revivifying Truth and inspiring humanity with renewed courage. The keys to Nature's storehouse are placed in our hands that we may open her doors and feed on the ripened truth of ages. This lecture overflows with material for those who desire better things, nobler attainments, grander achievements, loftier sentiments and happier lives. BETWEEN TWO WORLDS. Between Two Worlds is a realistic feast of optimistic facts, filling the soul with a determination to make life more useful, bright and enjoyable. This lecture has imbued many a downcast, despondent person with cheerfulness and new life. Beginnings and Endings are portrayed in a very pleasing and forceful manner. Great geniuses are sometimes difficult to understand, but Doctor Price is one of the most approachable, genial and companionable of men, always, no matter how busy, ready to see his old friends, to help along any good cause, to aid with his counsel and experience. He is just as kind, considerate and patient with the humblest and poorest man or woman, giving them the same painstaking skill and attention as to the merchant prince and the great financier. Such choice spirits are far too few; long may he live to continue the Chautauqua and Lyceum work. George W. Cunningham. ENCOMIUMS KEY TO STOREHOUSE. I am glad I heard your lecture, as I secured the intellectual key, which opens to me the storehouse of knowledge obtained between the two worlds.—M. M. Latham, Greensboro, N. C. NO NEED OF ELBOWING. To have the corners knocked off from our angular living by such lectures as you give enables us to get through the world without so much elbowing.— C. H. Jones, New Haven, Conn. Harry de Joannis, Western Manager Building Age, says: I regard Dr. James Russell Price as one of the most remarkable men I have met, and this is no small measure of appraisement as my editorial work brings me daily into contact with men of many different types, characteristics and acquirements. I have known Dr. Price in four different capacities—physician, philosopher, scientist and public lecturer, and in all these he has justified the faith I have placed in him. I doubt if there is any speaker on the platform today who presents the subject of race culture to a mixed audience so skillfully and effectively. He possesses an analytical mind of great power, handling his various subjects with consummate skill. His points are well taken and his statements are clear-cut and devoid of ambiguity. Where other people theorize and believe, he knows, and is able to demonstrate by argument and experience, bringing conviction to the most obtuse. His voice has great carrying power, and one never tires of the many seed thoughts which he so earnestly presents. HEWS TO THE LINE. Doctor Price, I like the cosmopolitan spirit of your lecture, which shows that you have no ax to grind, but you carry a sharp one which cuts the tree down with one stroke without wasting the wood.—Emil Roesch, Cincinnati, Ohio. GOOD FOR THE NERVES. I have been nervous and restless for some time past and have found nothing to relieve me so completely as listening to Dr. Price's lecture, Between Two Worlds, as it gives me a rest of mind that is very pleasing indeed.—Mrs. L. R. Case, Alliance, Ohio. A NEW IDEA ON CLOCKTIME. Your statement that the hands of the clock did not make, but indicate the time, nor the planetary clockwork of the heavens do not influence, but indicate the tendency in our lives, has removed from my mind a superstition which has been a hindrance to my happiness.—P. H. Mielke, Conde, S. D. A COMPLETE MEAL. The intense desire by the audience to have Dr. Price continue another hour manifested itself at the close of each lecture, and assures me that others enjoyed his talks as well as myself. His manner of portraying Truth is so vividly different from other speakers that it is a complete meal with dessert thrown in, but still leaves a person hungry for more. I have never comprehended in a scientific manner the necessity of discarding all worries of the past and future, as I have since listening to your lectures.—N. M. Duerson, La Grange, Ky. OPENS EYES OF PRUDES. It is to be hoped that everyone interested in the betterment of the race may have an opportunity of hearing Dr. J. R. Price's great lecture on the most important science of the age—Eugenics. As teacher and physician Dr. Price has gathered a tremendous number of facts, which will amaze persons indifferent to or ignorant of the problem of sex. These he presents in a striking way. His lecture cannot fail to open the eyes of prudes, and induce people generally to give more thought to the serious problem of marriage and parenthood.—Miriam Goodhue Lynch, Vocal Teacher, Drake School of Music, Chicago. STIMULATES BRAIN JUICE. Your lecture on Between Two Worlds has started the juices of my brain into such vital activity that I am exceedingly anxious to hear you continue your address from the place where you stopped.—Martin Nelson, Bliss, N. Y. AN INTELLECTUAL TREAT. I heard with interest Dr. Price's lecture, Between Two Worlds, and it was an intellectual treat.—Mrs. M. C. Weech, Alexandria, Va. SWEEPING AWAY COBWEBS. Your lecture was a new broom, which has swept away many cobwebs from the closet of my memory, for which I am truly grateful.—J. W. Clawson, Hall, Mont. WONDERFUL HELPS ON THE ROAD. I think the rocks you throw into the ruts of life are wonderful helps to those who desire to start on a new road.—D. A. Porter, Saskatoon, Canada. Rev. Frank Caldwell says: During the summer of 1912, while pastor of the M. E. Church at Sydney, Iowa, Dr. James Russell Price delivered the morning address in my church. He talked along the line of the Bible as a scientific book. It was a very interesting and instructive address, and the time he used was altogether too short for those present. EDITORIAL COMMENTS It would be well if every family had a copy of the whole lecture on 'Eugenics or The New Parenthood,' delivered by Dr. J. Russell Price last week at our Chautauqua, and would make it a constant study. The good Doctor made many friends while here.— Humboldt Independent, Humboldt, Iowa, Aug. 7, 1913. Dr. J. Russell Price, who lectured last night on 'Eugenics or The New Parenthood,' urged parents to free themselves from the false modesty that has largely created the present day intolerable conditions of insanity, deformity and degeneracy, due to the failure to educate children in matters of sex hygiene. He held that proper education of the young would save hundreds of women from the red light district.— Record Herald, Chicago. The father, as head of the family, was given most of the credit and (debit) of family life instead of the mother. We are called upon to reclaim six fallen men to one so-called fallen woman, and much of this may be accomplished through public lectures and publicity, said Dr. J. Russell Price at the Medical Convention, Hotel Sherman.— Chicago Daily Tribune. Dr. J. Russell Price, of Chicago, says that years of experience as a teacher and physician has convinced him that the real power of good or evil in the life of a child is the father; when desiring to trace idiosyncrasies, precocities or peculiarities, he sought the father for the cogent reasons of these conditions.— St. Louis Daily Globe. Courageous Dr. J. Russell Price ventures to assert that the human father is, after all, of some account in the world.— Daily News, Chicago. Dr. J. Russell Price, in his address at Hotel Sherman yesterday, gave the fathers their just dues. To put the father where he belongs in the economy of nature is the crying need of the hour.— Record Herald, Chicago. Dr. Price's lecture here a few weeks ago on 'Between Two Worlds' not only entertained, but implanted seed-thoughts in the minds of those who had the pleasure of hearing him, so that they were anxious and eager to hear him in his address last evening on 'Eugenics or The New Parenthood.'— Freeport Journal. Those who heard Dr. J. Russell Price last night had a treat and expressed a desire to hear him again.— Freeport Daily Standard. Dr. J. Russell Price, of Chicago, a Chautauqua and Lyceum lecturer, delivered an address on 'The Bible a Scientific Book' to the congregation at the First M. E. Church Sunday morning. His remarks were out of the ordinary and were very instructive and entertaining. Among other things he said: All progress is made in error; no progress was ever made in Truth, for Truth is the same yesterday, today and forever. Truth is unclothed. Error wears all kinds of garbs.— Citizen's Herald, Jesup, Iowa. At the School for the Blind, Dr. J. Russell Price, of Chicago, Monday morning gave an address on 'Nature's Amanuensis,' which his hearers found of more than usual interest. He said in part: 'A superstition has existed regarding an imaginary recording angel, which absolute science reveals to us through nature's amanuensis, in the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms. Unseen fingers make records in mineral crystalizations, vegetable cell formation, growing more complex in his record making, until sex separation is found in the animal and man.'— Jacksonville Journal. At Commencement exercises of the Chicago Heights Institute, Dr. J. Russell Price gave an interesting discourse on the subject, 'The Record Keeper,' illustrating how nature keeps absolutely correct records.— Chicago Heights Star. Dr. J. Russell Price, physician, scientist and lecturer of Chicago, lectures at Waterloo. The gospel of health, sex purity and the breeding of a strong race is the message borne. He said: 'The time has arrived when boys should be taught the true principles of fatherhood. Mothers should be qualified to instruct their sons in making suitable selections.'— Waterloo Evening Courier.
