         A great Christian Science church was dedicated in Bos-

         ton on Sunday, the 6th inst. It is located at Norway and

27    Falmouth Streets, and is intended to be a testimonial to

1      the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, the

         Rev. Mary Baker Eddy. The building is fire-proof, and

3      cost over two hundred thousand dollars. It is entirely

         paid for, and contributions for its erection came from every

         State in the Union, and from many lands. The auditorium

6      is said to seat between fourteen and fifteen hundred, and

         was thronged at the four services on the day of dedication.

         The sermon, prepared by Mrs. Eddy, was read by Mrs.

9      Bemis. It rehearsed the significance of the building, and

         reenunciated the truths which will find emphasis there.

         From the description we judge that it is one of the most

12    beautiful buildings in Boston, and, indeed, in all New

         England. Whatever may be thought of the peculiar tenets

         of the Christian Scientists, and whatever difference of

15    opinion there may be concerning the organization of such

         a church, there can be no question but that the adherents

         of this church have proved their faith by their works.
