[Written Especially for Young People]

Young people are often heard to say that they would like to take part in this or that school activity but that they have not the necessary means. And when on that account a student is deprived of enjoying certain activities of school life, he may be disappointed and feel himself deprived of something that belongs to him.

Our beloved Leader had a normal girlhood, and Dr. Lyman P. Powell, in his book entitled "Mary Baker Eddy: A Life Size Portrait," has given to the second chapter in the book the title "A Rich Girlhood." As we follow her life-story through this chapter we find that, while she ranked high as a student, she was interested in social gatherings, made visits to other towns, and helped her mother to entertain relatives and friends. We are also told, however, that at one time she could not join a writing class because she did not have the necessary funds. So Mrs. Eddy as a schoolgirl also had the question of supply to think about.
