A meeting in the interests of The Christian Science Monitor was held in Rochdale on Jan. 13. Frederick Dixon gave an address, and Bicknell Young also spoke. There were nearly three hundred present, representatives from Lancashire, Yorkshire, and Cheshire taking part in testimony to the good work that is being accomplished by the Monitor. Altogether it was a meeting long to be remembered, and will do a lot of good. The Rev. Richards Woolfenden, who introduced Mr. Dixon, said in closing:—

Before I ask Mr. Dixon to address us, let me give him a little further encouragement by telling him what we are doing in Rochdale. This church, besides distribution work, is offering to members and friends who care to take advantage of it, a year's subscription of the Monitor on the easy terms of paying for it week by week, so that any one can have the paper for twelve months at the rate of nine-pence per week. We offered a six-months subscription free, to the editors of the local papers, who in each case accepted heartily. We have placed subscriptions in newsrooms, clubs, libraries, and other institutions, where our daily newspaper is now being read and appreciated. One of the members of our church has contributed articles and drawings which have appeared in the Monitor and earned favorable comments in the local press.
