Among the Churches

Current Notes

Columbus Dispatch

Columbus, Ohio.—One feature of war work which has been practically unknown to the public is that being done by the members of the two Christian Science churches in Columbus. The headquarters are in room 31 West Gay Street, and every day the busy women are working for the women and children of France who have been left destitute by the war. Much knitting has been done by the Christian Science women, sweaters, helmets, trench caps, mittens, mufflers, wristlets, and socks being made in large quantities and shipped to France. But perhaps the most important feature of the work just now is the making over of old garments into new ones.—Columbus Dispatch.

San Quentin, Cal.—On Saturday afternoon, September 28, under the auspices of the Churches of Christ, Scientist, in San Francisco, California, Bliss Knapp delivered a lecture on Christian Science to the inmates of the California State Penitentiary. The attendance was voluntary and numbered over five hundred men. The growth of Christian Science in the prison was evidenced by the fact that fully an hour before the lecture started the assembly hall was almost filled. The attention and interest displayed by the men was most noticeable, and the appreciation expressed by the inmates for the privilege of having heard it was gratifying. Five hundred pamphlets, also a number of Sentinels, Journals, and Monitors were distributed after the lecture, and many inmates asked to meet the lecturer for the purpose of expressing their appreciation.
