Item of Interest

Early summer is in its full glory at the twenty-five acre hilltop tract at Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, on which is located the Sanatorium of The Christian Science Benevolent Association; and the gradual unfolding of leaf and bud and flower during the past weeks has declared more definitely each day that the period "between taking up the white carpets and putting down the green ones" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 329) has passed, and the noontime of the year has appeared, serving as an object lesson in the experience of those who are striving to continue without interruption along the pathway which at times may seem rugged.

From the grand old oak, which is said to be nearly three hundred years old, to the richly blooming rhododendrons, and down to the dainty forget-me-nots to be found beside the steps through the rock garden—not to mention the comfortable-looking bird boxes, attractive, whether freshly painted or weather-beaten—all abounds in summer beauty.
