AMONG THE CHURCHES

With simple but impressive ceremonies the corner-stone of the new edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, was laid Tuesday [Sept. 29] at dawn. The services were under the direction of the board of trustees, and were under the direction of the board of trustees, and were conducted by Charles G. Bliss, First Reader of the church. A copper box, containing the Bible and Christian Science books and literature, was sealed in the stone, which bears the simple inscription, "First Church of Christ, Scientist, A. D. 1908." After the stone was in position Mr. J. B. See read the poem "Laus Deo," which was written by Mrs. Eddy for the laying of the corner-stone of The Mother Church in Boston in 1894.

Work on the edifice for First Church is progressing rapidly and the frame will soon be ready for the outside stone and stucco. The interior decorations and furnishings will be very beautiful.—Cranford Chronicle.
