Among the Churches

A Christian Science reading room has been opened at 322 North Charles Street under the auspices of First Church of Christ, Scientist. A large number of members of the First and Second Churches were present, and after some religious exercises Mr. Edward H. Hammond, First Reader of First Church, made a brief address, in which he alluded to the growth of Christian Science in this city, as well as in the whole world. He said:—

"Christian Science will be found to be the foundation of all reforms, as its leaven of Truth is at work in all directions. Christian Science is the healing religion of our Saviour, the Science of which was discovered by Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy and given to the world by her. One object of this reading room is to make the authentic literature of Christian Science more accessible to the public."

The rooms are in the best portion of the city. They consist of the second floor suite. From without, a large window, almost half of the entire front, radiates in gold letters: "Christian Science Reading Rooms. Open to all. First Church of Christ, Scientist." The entrance door also bears the same words. In full view of all passers-by will be a glass case containing Christian Science literature. The rooms are very beautiful, the walls hung in crimson silk tapestry, with ornate ceilings. The handsome portieres, the Turkish rugs, tables, easy chairs, and pictures were all contributed by the congregation. Back of the main reading room is a large room equally beautiful for distributing literature. There will be a circulating library of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and all the other works of the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, together with other Christian Science publications. Pamphlets, lectures, etc., will be generally distributed free. An attendant will be always in charge and the rooms will be open several evenings in the week.
