Among the Churches

At 7.30 on the morning of October 12, 1899, the cornerstone of the new edifice being erected for the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Berlin, Ont., was quietly laid in the presence of the church members. Appropriate selections were read from the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, and also a brief history of the local branch church. The simple ceremony was completed by placing in the stone a copper box. Its contents comprised a handsomely bound Bible, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker G. Eddy, the latest numbers of both the monthly and weekly publications of the Christian Science Publishing Society of Boston, Mass.; a copy of the declaration of incorporation of the Berlin church, and copies of the Daily News Record and Telegraph.

The new building will present a striking and substantial appearance, being built of field stone laid at random, and the site, at the corner of Water and Francis Streets, is convenient for the members both from Berlin and Waterloo.
