Among the Churches

September 26, 1905, the Secretary of State of Washington issued a charter to the twenty-four incorporating members of First Church of Christ, Scientist, of Aberdeen, a point in western Washington already of great importance to the lumber industry. It has approximately ten thousand people and the neighboring towns have a combined population of about as many more.

Six years ago three or four Scientists of Aberdeen formed a Christian Science Society, and from the first its growth has been steady. For over a year a Christian Science Reading Room has been maintained in a down-town building, and interest in the work is active, as is shown by the large attendance at both the Sunday and Wednesday meetings, at which as many as sixty-five people have been present, fifty being a fair average congregation. Another sign of vitality is the growth of the Sunday School from practically nothing to a membership of twenty-five.

For some time past a monthly collection has been taken for the benefit of the Building Fund of The Mother Church; three hundred dollars has already been forwarded, and this amount is increasing at the rate of twenty-five dollars a month.—J. R. Bertholf, Clerk.
