Among the many interesting and attractive features of the Montgomery county fair this year is a reading and writing tent and rest room, under the auspices of the two Christian Science congregations of this city. A large sign on the outside reads: "Christian Science Reading Tent," and a smaller one, "Visitors are welcome." The tent, eighteen by thirty feet, is very attractive inside, decorated with palms and furnished with comfortable wicker chairs, a cot, a writing-table, and reading-tables with Bibles and Christian Science literature. The tent is provided with a floor and covered with druggets. A water tank with ice water is provided for visitors. A small sign, "Take one," on a bundle of literature to be given away, is noted.

This tent is provided as "a refuge from the storm, a shadow from, the heat," for all who would like a few minutes' rest and an opportunity for good reading. Such a tent was maintained at the army encampment in Chicago a few weeks ago, and was very much appreciated by the officers of the army.—Dayton Journal.

The new Church of Christ, Scientist, will be opened for services tomorrow night [Aug. 16] at eight o'clock. The new edifice, which is located at the corner of Dwight way and Bowditch street, will not be completed before October, but services will be held in the building every Wednesday evening, beginning tomorrow. The services have been previously held in Wilkins Hall on Haste street.
