We came to Christian Science for the healing of our son. He was always a very active child, and perfectly well up to his eighth year, but just here something seemed to come upon him which frightened us very much. We called our family doctor and he pronounced his case a serious one. For five long years we struggled on, trying many different physicians in that time, but he seemed to grow worse. There was one physician who asked that she might take the case for six months free of charge, and I know she did the best she knew for him, but at the end of three months we stopped as he seemed to get worse. After this we lost all faith in drugs, and it seemed that my heart was broken to think that our only child must always suffer with a dread disease. How thankful I am that divine Love led us to try Christian Science! We did not know anything about it, but I went to see a practitioner. She told me that God would heal our boy, but as everything else had failed we did not have much hope that this treatment would cure him. He had, I think, in all about five months' treatment in Christian Science, and at the end of that time he was perfectly healed. It has been about one year now since there was any manifestation of the old trouble, and I can only say, Thank God for this deliverance! I shall not forget the loving help I have received from the different Scientists and I hope to be able to help others as I have been helped.—Leslie A. Scott, Riverside, Cal.

I became interested in Christian Science about eighteen months ago through the case of a dear friend who was healed by reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. After attending services several times I decided to take treatment, as I had been a great sufferer from infancy, never knowing what it meant to be free from pain. I had an abscess in my ear from which I had suffered all my life. I was treated by a specialist in Atlanta, Ga., about twenty-five years ago, and was benefited but not cured. I was also treated by a specialist in Montgomery, Ala., for throat trouble, but he told me my ear was incurable. After that I gave up all hope and asked God to make me resigned to my affliction, which I thought was His will, and when I called in a Christian Science practitioner to treat me I had no hope of my ear being healed, but thought I might be relieved of other diseases from which I suffered. My ear was healed in three weeks' treatment and all fear of weather affecting it vanished. I have never suffered from it since.

I feel very grateful to God, and to Mrs. Eddy for Christian Science; for the healing it has brought to me and my family. I am also grateful for the slight understanding that I have of Science. I have discarded all medicines and depend entirely upon Christian Science to free me from any and all discord which may present itself.
