From the South

The interest of our readers in the following article, copied from The Wilmington (N. C.) Messenger, will be enhanced by the knowledge that our Leader, during a portion of her early womanhood, was a resident of North and South Carolina, and it was in Wilmington that she received great kindness at the hands of the Masonic brethren of her husband, Major George W. Glover, upon the occasion of his death.

Your wideawake paper is always ready for items concerning the citizens of our Republic, though they may not sit immediately under our own vine and fig-tree. In this instance, however, some of our own people were present, and many interested in the event reported; that is, the dedication of First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Concord, N. H., on Sunday, July 17th. Four services were held, and the capacity of the church taxed in each instance. It is estimated that between four and five thousand people were in attendance, many coming on special trains from New York, Chicago, Boston, and points to the north. A New Hampshire paper says of the occasion, "Perhaps no church in New England was ever dedicated under auspices more resultant in manifestations of loving loyalty," and surely no happier, healthier, or more enthusiastic set of people ever gathered at the call of church chimes than on this occasion, when the beautiful granite structure given by Rev. Mary Baker G. Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, to the Christian Scientists of her home city, was dedicated to the service of God, the healing of the sick and the sinful.
