"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."

Thus saith the prophet of old, and we as Christian Scientists must rejoice when any of our literature is carried into a new-old country. Two boys, both considerably under twenty-one years of age, one a member of the Evanston, Ill. Church, the other of the Chicago Church, in company with some others, have passed over almost the entire length of the Ashcroft trail running from Quesnelle to Glenora, B. C. One of them has Science and Health, the other "Miscellaneous Writings." I was able to reach them with only one Journal, and as they say, "We were so glad to get it." While many of their companions have become disheartened and discouraged, throwing away portions of their outfits and abandoning their horses, these two have pushed on, having no accidents to speak of. Following is a quotation from a letter: "I am feeling fine. We walk from four to six hours on a stretch. My feet are not sore, and I am never stiff in the morning. Have covered about four hundred and fifty miles from Ashcroft here. Sometimes it rains, but we never feel any effects from wet feet and clothing dried without removing. You would hardly know F. L., he is so fleshy. Doesn't look at all like the same boy who left C—last March. Our horses have stood it well to what others have. My Science and Health has a waterproof covering to protect it."

They are now in winter quarters, about one hundred and twenty-five miles from Glenora, at the headwaters of the Nasse River.
