Before me is a New Year's card, sent by a dear friend, and in looking at the title, "Shining Hours," I feel that I must tell others how Christian Science turned my long, weary hours of gloom into shining hours. It not only healed me of three diseases pronounced incurable by materia medica, but it has changed my mental condition from that of a depressed, despondent, irritable woman, to one of peace, and of love for all mankind. Where I was always look ing for faults in others, I now try to see good in them, thereby bringing out the good. I know from actual experience that if one thinks evil he will bring that out in his experience, no matter what his environments, for to look upon everything with an evil eye blinds one to the good. To have "Shining Hours" we should flee "the mountain," to Christian Science, the highest altitude of Christianity that can be found, for it is the teaching of Jesus the Christ; and we study this truth as taught in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This book is indeed the "Key to the Scriptures;" it unlocks their hitherto spiritual meaning which our Master intended us to possess, because it enables us to use his teachings in a practical way. It also enables us to realize that God gives us dominion over all discord, physical, mental, or financial, and that He is omnipotent and omnipresent. I am not writing this from a visionary standpoint but from actual experience of its truth. When the verdict was passed upon me by materia medica that I would die in two or three days with Bright's disease, I was given Christian Science treatment, and began to improve at once. That is six and a half years ago, and since then I have had the benefit of class instruction by one of Mrs. Eddy's students. I have also had the great pleasure of helping others out of discordant conditions through my understanding of Christian Science.

It is with sincere gratitude to God and to our beloved Leader, that I am able to write of the grand works of Christian Science. — E. Della Wood, New York, N. Y.
