AMONG THE CHURCHES

Second Church of Christ, Scientist, which some time ago bought the property at the northeast corner of Delaware and Twelfth streets, announces plans to construct on this ground a church building with a seating capacity of twelve hundred. The total cost of the site, the church building, interior fixtures and organ, is placed at approximately one hundred and ten thousand dollars. Thirty thousand dollars was paid for the site. Plans have been prepared for the new structure.

Second church was organized in 1903 by a small body of Christian Scientists, and began with services in the chapel of the old high school building. This room was soon outgrown, and Jan. 1, 1905, the church began holding services in a new building which the organization, then unmbering fifty, had erected on ground it had bought at the corner of Meridian and Walnut streets, with a capacity of four hundred and fifty. Continued growth, however, soon compelled the abandonment of this building, and a removal to Caleb Mills hall, in the new high school bullding, after which, on the completion of the new Masonic temple, Illinois and North streets, removal was made to the Grand Lodge hall of that building, where the services are now being held.
