An earnest worker writes us a letter relative to her local society, from which we extract the following:—

"Most of us have been tried as by fire in many ways. We are few and poor in this world's goods, but all are earnest seekers for the whole Truth, as taught by the Master and our Leader. The contributions to the support of the work are small indeed, but I am sure it is all the members can pay. As an example of about all of our members, I will mention one man, Mr. C. of Bellefonte. His wages are ninety-five cents per day. He has to pay house rent and support his family of seven. He pays twenty cents per month towards the support of the church. It is all that he can pay, but that man, poor as he is, has nearly all of the Mother's books, takes the Journal and Quarterly, has 'The Journeyings of Jesus,' and Cruden's Concordance. At first he seemed less promising than others, but his growth in grace and in spiritual knowledge is a surprise, and his family too have been transformed by the blessed teaching of Christian Science."

Extract from a Letter:—"As to the Weekly, I cannot tell you what I think of that, only I feel all that has been said or written about it. For a year I have felt a lack somewhere that I could not define until this came, and at once I knew, for this filled it.
