Dillon a Christian Scientist

The Sioux City (Iowa) Journal

I am a Christian Scientist, pure and simple," said John Dillon to a reporter recently, "and believe in the doctrines of its healing powers. You and everybody know that I used to tip the bottle, and believed in nothing—absolutely nothing—that was for the good of man. And I never would have been healed till this day had it not been for my daughter, Mrs. R. E. Parker, of Chicago. She was ill and was cured by Christian Science after the doctors had given her up. Now I have been confirmed to the same way of thinking. Years ago I used to have two or three of medicine in my dressing room; you don't see any now." Dillon looked about with pride. Then he asked in his inquisitive tones: "Are there many persons in Sioux City who believe in Christian Science? It is the best religion extant."

Dillon is a firm believer that Christian Science is responsible for his success, and points with pride to the hour when he became imbued with this religion.
