Salem (Mass.) Evening News

Working with characteristic quietness and without ostentation, the Christian Science church in this city has, through its relief station at the church on Lynde street, accomplished remarkable results. Over fifteen hundred families, aggregating some six thousand individuals, have been materially assisted.

The relief station, conducted under the auspices of First Church of Christ, Scientist, closed last evening [July 17], so far as the giving out of clothing is concerned. There has been given away all kinds of wearing apparel for men and women, sheets and blankets. The men have taken considerable winter clothing, but the women have as a rule taken only light clothes, consequently a large lot of thick clothing for women and a small quantity for men remains on hand, with other material. Last evening all this was turned over to one of the charitable societies.

The relief committee will remain intact, and will meet every Monday and Thursday afternoon between four and five o'clock, as well as Wednesday evening, the usual meeting night of the church. The members have given out several cheeks, and still have some money left, which they will distribute among the needy.
