In making their semiannual report for 1912 on the work at the city reading-rooms. the joint committee of First and Second churches, who are responsible for the maintenance of these rooms, state that the rooms have now undergone enlargement twice since they were opened in January, 1910. The latest enlargement has proved to be a great improvement, and the reading-room with its attendant office and salesroom now occupies the whole of the first floor at 15 Queen street, Cheapside, E. C., and provides ample accommodation for present needs.

Situated in the heart of the business section of London, this reading-room is calculated to offer a great advantage to business men and others who are becoming interested in Christian Science. Many of these much appreciate the opportunity of complete withdrawal, if only for a few minutes, from the business environment which the reading-room affords as a means of gaining that spiritual refreshment which our literature has to offer. The reading-room is located at a point where five streets converge, and its prominent sign is a gentle reminder to all and sundry that here is an opportunity to step aside for a moment from the busy thoroughfare. To those who have ears to hear it seems to say, "Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labor for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, ... and I will make an everlasting covenant with you."—Correspondence.
