AMONG THE CHURCHES

Probably the most impressive structure devoted to religious uses erected in Chicago in present years is the edifice of Eighth Church of Christ, Scientist, just completed at the northeast corner of Michigan boulevard and Forty-fourth street. One of the most impressive features of the building is the dome, filled with twenty-four beautiful golden windows and a novel indirect lighting system which floods the building with light without exposing the means to the audience. The windows are glazed with opalescent glass. There is a great organ, an echo organ and chimes, the combination representing a cost of eleven thousand five hundred dollars. The church has a seating capacity of twelve hundred and fifty and the land and building cost one hundred and forty-seven thousand dollars, including furnishings and organ.—Examiner.
