Science and Health has been accepted by the Balaclava, the South Yarra, the Malvern, and George Robertson's lending libraries, the Violet Town Mechanies' Institute, and the women's ward at Pentrige jail. The "Life of Mary Baker Eddy," by Sibyl Wilbur, has been accepted by the Toorak, the Balaclava, the Malvern, the Elsternwick, the South Yarra, the Austral (Collins street), and George Robertson's (Elizabeth street) lending libraties, and the Violet Town, Caramut, and Kynton public libraries.

Science and Health is now at one hundred and seven places, Sentinels, Journals, etc., are sent to sixty-two places, and Monitors to one hundred and fourteen places.

At the Salvation Army Men's farm at Pakenham the superintendent wrote, thanking us on behalf of himself and the men for the Monitors, and said that both he and the men had read and enjoyed them. At the Boys Reformatory, Brighton, the superintendent said that there was much in the paper to interest the boys, and that he would be very grateful for it; also the Girls Reformatory at Riddle's Creek expressed appreciation for this paper. We are constantly hearing from various places of people who have read the literature and have received help. About four hundred and fifty Journals, thirty-one hundred Sentinels, fifty-five hundred Monitors, and three hundred specially marked Monitors, with articles of interest to individual people, have been distributed this year.
