I gladly give a testimony of the healing of our only child of diphtheria, through Christian Science. After learning a little of this teaching and work, we came North and settled for a few months at the town of Neillsville, Wis., where at that time an epidemic of diphtheria was prevalent. A little while before we had lost one child, and being among strangers and with no Christian Science practitioner near, my fear was something terrible to experience. Through our efforts to reach a Scientist by telephone, a health officer, also a doctor was notified; he came and pronounced the case diphtheria.

In a short time we had reached a practitioner in Minneapolis and some helpful letters told us she was at work. It did not seem to us a quick case of healing, but rather a good demonstration that no matter what mortal mind claims the condition of the body to be, Life is distinct,—entirely separate and above it. During this time the child ate of anything, and quantities of all kinds of fruit. She got up every day and was dressed. This case seemed to be watched closely and it was reported in an adjoining town that she was dead.—V. Estes Barkley, Greenwood, Wis.
