Evidences of the Power of Truth

Sixteen years ago Christian Science was brought to my notice, and I received much help. Fifteen years ago I received class instruction from the Mother. Since then I have seen many beautiful demonstrations of the divine Power that heals.

Last October I was asked to treat a lady some miles away during childbirth. I received a dispatch at 11 A.M., saying, pains began severely at 9 A.M. Later on I received word that at 11 A.M. nearly all pain ceased, and at 1.45 P.M. a fine son was born, and the demonstration was a beautiful one.

In February I was called to a child with scarlet fever. The schools here were being examined thoroughly by physicians. This child was examined on Wednesday and pronounced perfectly well. Thursday he did not seem quite like himself, and Friday morning I was sent for. I found him in high fever, etc. Saturday I reported the case to the Board of Health. They sent a doctor there on Monday whom I met. I had a pleasant talk with him and informed him the child was under Christian Science treatment. He examined the child according to the orders of the Board of Health and said, "Why, how can this be possible? You say the child was pronounced perfectly well by the examining doctor Wednesday, Friday you were called, and it is now Monday, and this child has passed through the different stages, only a mere trace of them to be seen, and is feeling well. I don't understand it!" I replied, "God's law is greater than material law in destroying errors, if we understand it." He said, "Truly, strange things are being done." The child was confined to the bed but one day, and ate anything he desired. There was a difference between Christian Science treatment and the practice of materia medica, when their daughter was confined to her room for seven weeks with the same disease.
