Christian Scientists who have contributed to The Mother Church "Fund for Relief in the Near East" will be pleased to know that the distribution of money and supplies is now being carried on by one of our church representatives who is at Constantinople.

Lieutenant Joel H. Benson, attached as a Christian Science Chaplain to the U. S. S. Denebola, now in eastern waters, is personally supervising the disbursement of the funds which have been cabled to him from Boston at different times. This insures that all the deserving within his reach will be promptly and intelligently cared for, without any of the usual expenses often incidental to a more elaborate or extended organization. It is reassuring to know that the money contributed by Christian Scientists is, without any expense to the Fund, being disbursed by a Christian Scientist on the far side of the world in relieving suffering and distress.
