My two boys had preceded me on a visit

My two boys had preceded me on a visit to my mother, who lives five miles in the country. In order to be in time to meet me on the early train, mother remained in town over night, leaving the boys with their grandfather. As we drove into the yard, father met us and said to me, "Herbert (the youngest) fell out of bed last night and broke his collar bone."

What terror filled me for a moment; but before I reached the house I was perfectly calm, for the Christ was saying to me, "Peace, be still," "My peace I give unto you." I went in to the little fellow, who was seven years of age, and found him wild with fear. He had a high fever and was suffering intensely. My mother, who is also a student of Science, and myself, took our books, Science and Health, and before we had treated ten minutes he was singing joyously, all pain, fever, and fear gone. He was up in three days perfectly well. The work had been quickly done, amidst the greatest antagonism and fearful predictions from other members of the family.—L. S. C., Macon, Ga.
