Relief Work among the Tornado Sufferers

The relief work instituted by The Christian Science Board of Directors in the regions devastated by the tornado which recently swept across Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana, has proceeded satisfactorily, and many expressions of gratitude have been received. The relief work was promptly organized by competent Christian Scientists, who caused an immediate survey of the devastated areas to be made by volunteer workers from Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Indianapolis. The first needs of sufferers were relieved by donations of money and distribution of necessary supplies, including food, clothing, and household goods. Christian Science literature, including "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was also distributed. The initial survey has been followed by others, and the work of rehabilitation which has been undertaken is still going on.

The following extracts from reports of those in charge of the relief work will give some understanding of the character and scope of the aid rendered. One worker writes:
