Industrial impulses set afoot when the first shovel of earth was turned for the now completed Christian Science Publishing Society building at One, Norway Street, Boston, continue to billow along the routes of world trade.

A four-million-dollar entterprise of any character makes itself felt afar, but when the enterprise is launched during a period of trade recession, when it is supported by contributions from practically every country under the sun, when it is of a nature which utilizes an unusually large variety of trades and materials, the waves of business set in motion find their way in widening circles which continue to wash on far strands long after the project itself is completed.

In many ways other than economical the completion of the new building which houses The Christian Science Publishing Society was a unique and far-reaching event. It was a challenge to, and a victory over, a general sense of depression which had apparently settled over the most of the world; it once more brought to the attention of the public the loyalty with which followers of the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy respond to any call for support of the movement she founded.
