Among the Churches

Current Notes

Bangor, Maine. — During the ten months ending May 1, there have been distributed in this vicinity, through the local committee, 20,278 pieces of literature. Classified, this distribution has been as follows: Journals, 738; Sentinels, 4,403; Monitors, 13,621; miscellaneous, 1,516. The committee has furnished subscriptions to the publications for the Bangor public library, and for several libraries in near-by towns, including the one at the University of Maine, Orono. The Penobscot county jail has been supplied with a copy of Science and Health, also with the Monitor and the Sentinel. Several schools, among them the Bangor high school and the state normal school at Castine, have likewise been provided with literature.

The Monitor is on file at the rooms of the Bangor Chamber of Commerce, and at several department stores and clubrooms. A box is maintained by the committee in the street railway general waiting-room, which is frequented by many people during the day, and literature from this supply is freely taken. This means of distribution seems to meet a definite need, and has led to several cases of healing, which have been brought to the attention of the committee. In this single source of activity 2,354 pieces of literature have been given circulation. The month of March was made a special Monitor month, during which the local field was asked to assist in the dissemination of this publication. Fifty-four new subscriptions, ranging from one month to one year each, resulted from this work. — Correspondence.
