I wish to mention a healing of the morphine habit of nine years' standing, which was accomplished in four days' treatment, and another of snuff-taking of long standing, which was healed, also a case of consumption which the doctor had operated on, taking a part of one of the ribs out in order to draw off the pus which he said had collected; finally he decided the patient must die, but said if she would use cod-liver oil she might live a year. I will add that she is now in Kentucky visiting, and in a recent letter she tells me she is doing well. Another case was that of a lady who has had bowel trouble for four years, and who at last became so bad she came to this city to be treated by the physicians here. On examination the doctor pronounced her case a very critical one, and said there must be an operation at once. Meanwhile he treated the case with drugs, and in about two weeks made another examination and decided that the operation must be performed immediately, and told her the results would be likely to be fatal. She came to Christian Science and in two weeks was able to walk nine blocks; she washed, starched, and ironed her own clothes and packed them and was on the train for a four day's journey to her home in Tennessee, and wrote back saying she had had but one slight attack since she left me. She wrote: "I am getting along well, and I have made several good demonstrations since I saw you." I am sure much good will yet come from this wonderful healing.—E. Kate Howell, Shawnee, O. T.
