NURSERIES FOR CHARACTER BUILDING

From the August 1925 issue of The Christian Science Journal


On a drive through the country we come across large signs marked "Nurseries," places where the gardener or nurseryman has done his planting, and where we may see, in various stages of growth, seedlings and young plants which he is tending and cultivating for use,—for food, for shade, and for beautifying purposes. We may wander along paths he has laid in the open, where he has set out young saplings to flourish under the wide skies and to hold their own against the winds and the rain; or we may look into his greenhouses at the growing things that need shelter and tender watching until they are sturdy enough for transplanting.
