Under the auspices of the ten Churches of Christ, Scientist, a free reading and writing tent, seventy-five feet long and thirty-five feet wide, has been fitted up for the accommodation of the soldiers and visitors who are attending the national military tournament at Grant park, Chicago, this week. We clip as follows from a letter recently received:—

"I am availing myself of the opportunity of writing the first letter written in the Christian Science reading-tent, erected in Grant park, on our lake front, as a reading-room where all our literature may be read, and where visitors may obtain, without money and without price, copies of our periodicals. The committee has provided the best of everything, including the stationery for free public use."

The ground at the northeast corner of Fortieth and Walnut streets has been purchased by First Church of Christ, Scientist,A correction was made in the August 5, 1911 Sentinel: "We have been asked by Third Church of Christ, Scientist, Kansas City, Mo., to correct two erroneous statements in the item from the Kansas City Times in the Sentinel for July 29. The lot was not purchased by First Church, as stated, but by Third Church; also, that no plans will be considered until the lot is paid for."  and a new church, to be known as Third Church of Christ, Scientist, will be built there. The lot is one hundred and fifty-six feet on Walnut street and one hundred and fifteen feet on Fortieth street. It was purchased from the Kansas City Athenæum. The members of the Athenæum purchased the lot with the purpose of building a clubhouse there, but they decided that it was too far south.
