Among the Churches

Current Notes

Santa Cruz, Cal.—The distribution committee reports literature distributed during the year ending December, 1914, as follows: Monitors, 5,475; Sentinels, 1,291; Journals, 89; Herolds, 61; pamphlets, 20; reprints, 10; other magazines, papers, etc., recommended, 160; making a total of 7,106 pieces. Of these, twenty-two hundred copies of the Monitor were remailed locally as "marked copies." Three local illustrated articles were printed in the Monitor, and of these over one thousand marked copies were distributed; the rest are accounted for through distribution racks in public places, distribution at the lecture, to hotels, barber shops, etc. Seven annual gift subscriptions are provided by the Sunday school for various public and semipublic institutions and offices. The Monitor is on sale daily at a book and stationery store. The Sentinel is sent through the mail to individuals, largely.—Distribution Committee.

Miami, Fla.—The history of the Christian Science Society of Miami began in February, 1909, when a family who were Christian Scientists came here for the season. Missing their church services, they began to inquire if there were not some people interested in Christian Science, who would join them in holding a service at their home on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. These meetings were so well attended that they were continued, and an organization was formed just three years ago.

Through the kindness and cooperation of the Christian Science Society of Cocoanut Grove, six miles south of Miami, a lecture was given in Miami each of the two winters previous to this society's organization. At a cost of seven hundred dollars a free reading-room was opened last Thanksgiving day. The attendance at the services last year was so large as to compel the society to move from its pleasant location in the Woman's Club Building to the Auditorium, on Avenue C.—Miami Metropolis.
