To Students

It is sometimes said that when people become Christian Scientists they lose their taste for books; but this is not true, for Christian Science teaches one to love everything good and uplifting, and it acknowledges the best books as an important aid to one's growth.

If the students in our schools and colleges knew what Christian Science would do for them, no sacrifice would seem too great for them to make in order to obtain the text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

To illustrate the benefit students may derive from Christian Science, I will relate what it did for one student. The one of whom I speak is a girl who had not been strong from childhood. She was extremely fond of her books and studies, but her school life was frequently interrupted by ill health, which so increased that in the last months of preparation for college she was forced to go from each recitation to her bed; yet when suffering from the greatest pain or weariness, the thought of her beloved studies would send her back to school.
