An event of unusual interest to
Christian Scientists occurred at Con
cord N Ht July 17 An invitation
was sent to all Christian Scientists
to participate In the dedication of a
newly completed edifice which Is the
gift of Mrs Eddy to the members of
her homo church Many Christian
Scientists were present and special
trains were run from New York and
Boston Services wcro held at half
pest ten a m three in the after
noon and halfpast seven p m At
r ch of these a mnssagc from tho
leader was read
The cost of the building has exceed
ed 200000 of which Mrs Eddy con
tributed a large proportion Unsolic
ited donations from other Christian
Science churches swelled the original
estimate of fl20000 to the present
Tho architecture of the building is
Italian Gothic and the exterior Is of
rockfaced Concord granite The
stone tower is surmounted with a
lantern wbrh rises to a height of ICiJ
feet and forms a landmark to the
suirundlng country 0 designs
were prepared by Messrs Allen
Collins of Boston
The seating capacity of the audi
torium Is about one thousand and
the qunrted oak pews are a gift from
the six Christian Science churches of
Chicago The Interior decoration Is
quiet and attractive and on the walls
there arc several Bible Texts and quo
tations from tho Christian Science

Authority Urges Starting of Another
Military Academy
Col Samuel E Tilman a professor
of sciences at the West Point military
academy has started a warm discus
sion in military circles oer his sug
gestion in the Journal of the Military
Service Institution that there should
be two academies for the education of
army officers He contends that the
old academy Is becoming overbur
dened with students and the curricu
lum overtaxed and It is thereby los
ing its value for thorough training
Military authorities hold that tho pres
ent service schools for artillery caval
ry submarine defense engineering
and so on are sufficient to meet all
demands and that the West Point In
stitution should be retained just as it
is where camaraderie and school loy
alty will bo developed In all Who mjoy

Tho southern Gothic although de
veloped from causes differing entire
ly from the northern has all the re
quircments necessary for the propei
treatment of granite as a building ma
tcriai This phase of architecture is
characteristic of most towns of north
crn Italy The churches arc for the
most part built of brick the mold
ings themselves being to a largo ex
tent composed of brick courses curi
ously arranged
These broad wall surfaces were a
protection against the blinding glare
of the Italian sub and developed in
contrast to the huge window areas oi
the Gothic under darker northern
skies Tho Btyle itself is the out
growth of the northern flohlc strag
gling Eouthward against the natural
stronghold of the romnncsque and
classic and imbuing the latter with a
few minor characteristics of Its own
sue as the pointed arch and the
Gothic vault
In the soetmd place the huge cam
paniles of the southern Gothic in a
broader and bolder treatment than
the northern symbolize one thought
which among others It was Mrs Ed j

her church aspiration
No one who has seen tho beautiful

The special granite used in tills
church was quarried within a few
miles of the church site The ashlar
may be technically described as split
rock face laid with original beds and
random tnd and original treatment
for granite The stones arc several
times greater in length than in height
the quoins being very large in com
parison with the wail proper The
trimmings of the church arc of the
same granite carefully tooled which
gives the stone a whiter tone than
the dark ashlar thercbj standing out
In s rong contrast
The new church has a central loca

citizens of Concord arc justly proud
of the new building which forms a

much good for her and she finally per
suaded be and although no other food
bad done me tho least bit of good my
stomach handled the GrapeNuts from
the first and this food supplied the
nourishment I had needed In three
