A Christian Scientist residing in St. Augustine, Florida, wrote me of a demonstration which impressed me as being a beautiful illustration of the power of Love over hate.

She said: "The war does not seem so real to me as it has hitherto. There is much feeling in this old Spanish city against our boys, and a few Sundays ago a policeman, after firing his revolver a number of times, which made the crowd scatter, arrested one of them, a young boy.

"It was in front of our house, and hundreds of furious soldiers gathered around the policeman and were going to lynch the boy.

"I realized God's power as I never did before, and called the ringleaders to bring the soldiers to me, which they did.

"I talked to them, or Truth spoke, a few moments, and the frenzied mob was subdued by the Love that never fails.

"'She is right, boys; three cheers for the lady!' and they gave it with a vigor, and dispersed."

Was not this a grand demonstration of the power of ever-present Love?—Emma E. Fiske, Washington, D. C.
