Boston, U.S.A. —The Boston Y. M. C. A. not only reached its goal of $100,000 last evening [Tuesday, Jan. 29], to cancel a deficit, but went beyond, rolling up a total of $119,105.42. The largest team total was returned by team No. 13, representing the Christian Science church, its total being $13,884.55.—Boston Herald and Journal.

Amsterdam, N. Y.—At the annual meeting of First Church of Christ, Scientist, held February 5, the literature distribution committee reported that during the year ending January 31 there had been distributed 1579 Sentinels, 123 Journals, 28 Herolds, 4103 Monitors, 36 pamphlets, making a total of 5869 pieces.—Amsterdam Recorder.

Elkhart, Ind.—The handsome new edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, at Second Street and Lexington Avenue, will be opened for regular services the first time next Sunday forenoon [Feb. 17]. Two months ago, while still unfinished, it was utilized for a Christian Science lecture, but the formal opening was delayed until the building was completed. Construction was begun in July, 1916, and progressed as steadily as it was possible to secure materials and skilled labor. The spacious auditorium seats six hundred people, and provision is made for a balcony which will accommodate two hundred more. The Sunday school room seats three hundred.—Elkhart Truth.
