The Granite Monthly for May

Concord Evening Monitor

The May number of the Granite Monthly is in every sense a notable issue of that sterling New Hampshire periodical. It opens with a charming poem, "Easter Morn," by the Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, which is instinct with spiritual insight and aspiration. Then follows, from the pen of Mrs. Henrietta H. Williams, a superbly illustrated article entitled "Among the Christian Science Churches," in which one may find concretely set forth some of the more striking of the merely external evidences of the dissemination of this faith, as shown in its chain of beautiful church edifices which extends from sea to sea across our own continent and has its links in other lands as well.

Mrs. Williams' narrative has an authoritative character, inasmuch as its sources of information are wholly official, but she has not confined herself to a mere routine enumeration of church organizations and structures. Indeed, the statistical is practically eliminated, while with fine discrimination, she has set forth the fundamental purposes and beliefs which have actuated the Christian Science movement and which form the basic motives for the enduring characteristics wrought into its church edifices, together with an outline of polity and administrative features, the whole combining to make a compact and comprehensive survey of a field of wide scope.
