Mrs. Paddock says she Owes her Life to Science

The Lincoln (Neb.) Evening News

Since the McMullen bill to prohibit Christian Science healing in Nebraska has been pending in the Senate, having first passed the House, there have been many protests received against its favorable consideration. These protests declare it to be unconstitutional, in that it assails the constitutional guaranty of religious liberty. The protests are signed by hundreds, not all of whom are followers of Christian Science healing. Most of the communications are identical, having evidently been circulated by Christian Scientists for signatures, but this morning Senator Fries submitted one that was out of the usual order. It came from Mrs. Algernon Sidney Paddock, and read as follows:

"To the Honorable Members of the Senate of the State of Nebraska:— I have been a resident of Nebraska for over forty years, and have the interests of the State much at heart. For twenty years, at certain intervals, I was a great sufferer. I consulted the best doctors and surgeons in New York, Washington, and in other places. With one accord they pronounced the disease to be sciatica in the worst form.
