Among the Churches

Current Notes

Hartford, Conn.—At the reading-tent maintained by Second Church of Christ, Scientist, at the state fair, Charter Oak park, Sept. 7 to 12, there were 1,510 pieces of literature distributed. The success of the undertaking is not to be judged alone by the amount of literature distributed. The presence of the tent at the fair; the conscientious work done by those in attendance; the atmosphere of peace and harmony, which was commented on by many who were not Christian Scientists; the opportunities for an impersonal declaration of the truth, and the fact that many left the tent refreshed in body as well as in spirit, are proofs of the "signs following" of which Jesus spoke so often. It was with much gratitude that the public availed themselves of the privileges here offered, and the literature was readily accepted and read.—Correspondence.

Eugene, Ore.—The contract for the construction of the new Christian Science church at Twelft and Pearl streets has been let. The structure is to be completed by Dec. 15. The main auditorium will seat three hundred and fifty persons.—Eugene Guard.

Salem, Ore.—At the state fair held in Salem from Sept. 28 to Oct. 3, a Monitor booth with reading-room was maintained in the Educational Building. Last year a tent was erected on the grounds; this year space inside was secured. The week's work proved the wisdom of the change. We feel, too, that making the booth a Monitor booth instead of a denominational one, was a wise step. On the walls of the reading-room were displayed pages from the Monitor, each properly designated and mounted upon a gray mat. This enabled us to show the visitor at a glance the scope of the paper's work. Pages representative of the following departments were shown: International, Foreign, South American, Special Articles, Fashions and Household, Children's, Sports, Financial, Home Forum, Editorial, Advertisements. A show-case contained an exhibit of Mrs. Eddy's writings, while Christian Science literature for free distribution was made easily available.
