Among the Churches

Current Notes

Colorado. —The progress of Christian Science has never been more marked than during the past year. Growth in attendance and membership is noted in practically every Christian Science organization throughout the state, while new organizations and groups of Scientists working together have sprung up in a number of communities which heretofore had no workers. For a number of years the state committee has been chairman of the joint distribution committee of the Denver churches, bu on July 1, 1915, separate committees for each church were organized. During the nine months beginning Nov. 1, 1914, and ending July 31, 1915, there was distributed by the Denver committee under the direction of this office a total of 56,369 pieces of literature. Also during the fiscal year there was distributed throughout the state by the state committee on publication 14,935 pieces.

The Monitor is supplied to the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad observation cars between Denver and Salt Lake City, and the Y. M. C. A. at Minturn, the Santa Fe observation car (train No. 12), the State Road Camp at La Porte, the Odd Fellows Home, the Boys' Industrial School, the State School of Mines, the public library at Lamar, the U. S. Naval Hospital, the State Penitentiary, the Girls' Industrial School, and the State Reformatory. Mrs. Eddy's works, also "The Life of Mary Baker Eddy" by Sibyl Wilbur, and subscriptions to the Christian Science periodicals, are supplied to the libraries of the state by the Trustees under the Will of Mary Baker Eddy upon recommendation of the state committee. Last year thirty-nine public libraries were supplied in this manner, and in these libraries subscriptions to periodicals are being renewed and new works added, where necessary.
