A Business Incident

Not long ago I arranged to take an evening course of lessons in Christian Science; but as the time drew near it seemed almost impossible for me to count on having my evenings, as my business had kept me at my desk almost every night for several weeks. The day before the class was to begin I went to my teacher and told her how impossible it seemed for me to find time to take the teaching. She swept the matter aside with perfect assurance that it would be all right, and smiled, as if to say, "Oh ye of little faith." I left her feeling greatly uplifted with the thought that Christian Science can do anything.

That afternoon, Saturday, the busiest day of the week for me, I was through with my work at half past four, and left the office an hour early,—something I had not done for months. The Saturday before that I had worked till midnight. I hastened to my teacher with the good news, and she took it as such a matter of course that I seemed to see more clearly than ever that it was not a mere chance, but was a demonstration of the wonderful power of Christian Science to solve all the problems of every-day life. The demonstration was complete, for though months have passed since then I have scarce found it necessary to work evenings, even through a far busier period of business.
