During a two weeks' vacation at one of the northern lakes, I found myself surrounded by about three hundred people. I wondered if I should find any Scientists there. One lady, hearing that I was a Scientist, wished to talk with me. After two hours' conversation, she decided to go home, take treatment, and look into the subject. A few days passed, and I became hungry to talk with a Christian Scientist. I thought among three hundred guests there must be another Scientist, and I went down to the lobby where all passed through. I had watched the faces about fifteen minutes, when I saw a gentleman whom I was sure from his badge,—the satisfied, happy expression on his face,—was a Christian Scientist. Then a lady came up and talked with him, whose 'badge," was the happiest, sweetest face in the whole hotel. I soon found her alone and inquired if she were not a Christian Scientist. She quickly said, "Yes, and my husband and two sons." My desire was granted. They are earnest workers in Chicago. The sunlight of Love—the badge of Christian Science, which shone through the Mother's face, on that waiting multitude, the 5th of July, 1897, will never be mistaken nor forgotten by those whose blessed privilege it was to see her. Let us all carry this badge of happiness and peace that Christ may be lifted up, and all the world drawn unto Him.
