Among the Churches

The First Church of Christ, Scientist, at Yankton, South Dakota, was dedicated September 16, 1900.

It was a beautiful Sabbath morning, and upon entering the church one was impressed by the mass of blossoms and evergreens that greeted the eye. Opposite the door and just below and in front of the Readers' stands, were steps of potted plants, and rich foliage. At either end of the steps were stands, upon which were ferns. On the bracket between the Readers' stands was a handsome cutglass rose bowl of flowers. On the wall back of the Readers, and just under the frosted glass trefoil window, was placed these words in green, "God is Love," with a green scroll underneath. The organ was a mass of green and red blossoms, and a bank of the same was on the opposite side of the church. On a stand in the corner was a large wax begonia, whose long red and green branches hung to the floor, while a high stand beside it held cut blossoms. Each window was banked with green and golden rod. The whole was brought out in pleasing contrast to the rich cream and terra cotta coloring of the walls and ceiling, softened and blended by the rays of light from the stained glass windows.
