Dr. John Fiske will deliver the annual Ingersoll Lecture at 8 o'clock this evening in Sanders Theatre, on the subject of "Life Everlasting." The lecture will deal with two or three aspects of the question from the point of view of the doctrine of evolution. It will be published afterwards, in somewhat expanded form, by Houghton, Mifflin & Co.
The Ingersoll Lectureship was founded in 1893 by the will of Miss Caroline Haskell Ingersoll, of Keene, N. H., which provided for the delivery of one lecture each year on "The Immortality of Man," and also for the publication of the lecture after its delivery. Under these provisions four lectures have thus far been delivered and published:--1--"Immortality and the New Theodicy," by Rev. George A Gordon; 2. "Human Immortality. Two Supposed Objections to the Doctrine," by Professor William James; 3. "Dionysos and Immortality," by President Benjamin I. Wheeler; 4. "The Conception of Immortality," by Professor Josiah Royce.
