Among the Churches

"First Church of Christ, Scientist," is the gilt-lettered inscription on the sign that hangs in front of a stately old colonial residence at No. 704 East Fayette Street. It is no longer a dwelling-house, but, remodeled for its present purpose, it serves the Christian Scientists of the city as a sanctuary.

The interior of the building is very unlike any other place of worship in the city, and the services are altogether unique. The front room on the first floor is fitted up as the reading room. On a large easel in one corner stands a crayon portrait of Mary Baker Eddy, the New England woman who is the Founder of the faith. On the table is displayed an abundance of Christian Science literature. From two to five o'clock every day the reading room is open and some member of the church is in attendance to welcome visitors who may come from either curiosity or conviction.
