Although it is about three years since I first became interested in Christian Science, I have never taken the privilege of stating my experience through the columns of our publications.

I had been troubled for several years with a most severe and distressing form of dyspepsia, which caused me to be very exacting in my diet, and kept me from eating with my family, as I do at the present time. I also had liver trouble. My condition became worse and worse until finally my disease developed in a tumor of the stomach. I was constantly under the care of a doctor, who gave me this and that medicine, and finding no relief, the doctor, after consulting his colleagues, decided that the only means of relief would be an operation to remove the tumor. I had always had great fear of operations, and I am sure if one had been attempted it would have resulted in death.

About the time I was considering the operation, of course not favorably, a friend called my attention to Christian Science, and suggested a trial. I was ready to try anything but surgery if it would afford relief, and gladly gave my consent. After consulting Mrs. C. M., a Christian Scientist of this city, I made arrangements for treatment.
