A short time ago I was called to treat a little baby that had been given up by the attending physician with the remark, "No power on earth can save that child," and when I reached the house, it was very evident that, from his standpoint, he had made a true statement. The little one was reduced to a mere skeleton, its nails and the ends of its fingers were black, and its eyes rolled back and set, and the so-called death film covered them, making them appear sightless; the breath seemed nearly gone, and there is no doubt that another hour would have marked the termination of the little mortal life, had Science not been called to its aid.

Another student of Science was present when I arrived, but could not remain, and in a short time I was left alone with the baby. I worked without a shadow of fear or doubt for about an hour, but could see no change, I then sent for "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and read to the entire family, consisting of father, mother, and two little boys. On opening the book, the first sentence on which my eye rested was on page 336, "Jesus acknowledged no ties of the flesh." I read about twenty pages, and every one was aglow with the thought of Life, and power of Truth to destroy error, and the last sentence was on page 356, "He knew that matter had no life, and that real Life is God; therefore he could no more be separated from Life, than God could be extinguished." While there was then no apparent change, I felt certain that all was well, and so left them.
