It is about four years since Christian Science first came to our notice, and we are very grateful for the many benefits received through it. The knowledge we have gained has been through "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. My husband was afflicted with a very severe bowel and stomach trouble, for which he took medicine constantly for five years, but it grew worse all the time, and he was nearing a state of collapse when Christian Science was presented to him. Having tried materia medica without any benefit, he had nowhere else to go, so in his misery he concluded to try Christian Science. He engaged a practitioner, and through her patient and faithful work he was healed,—made whole.

Some two years ago our eldest boy, then a child six years of age, was frightfully burned by falling into a kettle of hot lard which had been taken off the stove only a few moments before. Two places on the body, each as large as a saucer, and also two places on his limbs were burned. When his clothing was removed the skin came off with it from the four places. The child was put to bed, and after half an hour's treatment, he was fast asleep, and rested well all night. In about three days afterwards he was wearing all his clothing again. He never made any complaint of the burns whatever. From all appearances he suffered no pain, and in about ten days the burned places were all smoothly healed over and no scars at all were left.
