How the Bird was Saved

My little son Arthur and daughter Dorothy have always enjoyed reading in the Sentinel of the demonstrations which have been made by the little ones.

We want to tell how our bird was saved. Dorothy came in and found the cat had knocked the cage to the floor and was trying to kill the canary.

She rescued the bird, drove out the cat, and ran to me. Arthur and I came at once. Arthur ran for Science and Health and handed it to me unasked. I said, "Are you denying?" and we all went to work. The bird lay stretched out in the bottom of the cage, its eyes open, but otherwise it seemed to be nearly gone. I read aloud from Science and Health for a while, then treated the bird for an hour, when it suddenly sprang up on its perch and I knew the demonstration was made.

The children helped all they could and never voiced the error. The bird now hops about as gay as ever and sings its sweet song.—Margaret D. Coburn, Chadron, Neb.
