The Seed of Truth Sown in Austin, Pa.

Four years ago this winter, my husband took his little boy to the city of Buffalo. The child was nearly blind. His eyes had been operated on several times, but with all the care of the best physicians no lasting benefit had ever been received. Later on the boy was again placed under medical care; but it happened that the father secured rooms in the home of a Christian Scientist, where Christian Science was recommended to him. He would not listen, but did say that if Science could heal him of a stomach trouble with which he had suffered for several years, he might venture to place his child under their care.

Some doctors had pronounced the trouble cancer of the stomach, one had said the cords holding the stomach in place were worn out, but the general verdict was—no help. They could make him more comfortable, that was all. Doses of morphine were taken day and night, but he could neither sleep nor eat.

Such was his condition when he walked into the practitioner's office, and in reply to the question whether he came for treatment he said he did not know; he had no faith in it at all; but a lot of women's whims had sent him there. He guessed he had come to please them.
