In September, 1903, I began to study Christian Science, and in six week's time, with the help of a practitioner, I was entirely cured of lung, throat, and stomach trouble. One of my sisters had died of tubercular disease, and I was supposed to have taken it, in another form, from her. One of the very best physicians in our city was employed, and he did all that any one could possibly do to relieve me. Whenever he examined my lungs he would say nothing, but would shake his head sadly, and walk away. My mother was a great sufferer from heart trouble, and we worried considerably about her, but our physician always said that my case troubled him much more than my mother's. I suffered severe pain from any exercise, and was cautioned constantly by my physician to be very careful as to what I ate. I took medicine regularly for a year and a half, at the same time putting myself under osteopathic treatment, and after all this was much worse. I became extremely thin, and this, together with my intense suffering, proved to me that materia medica could not cure me, nor could I live many months longer in that dreadful condition.

My mother was persuaded to try Christian Science, and when I saw her healed in a very short time, I consented to take treatment, and began to improve from the very first. I had been under medical treatment for a year and a half, without any good results, and at considerable expense, but I had Christian Science treatment for only a month and a half and was entirely healed of every one of my troubles. I was healed two years ago, and began studying vocal music, my throat being in perfect condition. To-day I weigh over one hundred and forty pounds, do not have to be careful of what I eat, and can run upstairs without any trouble. I am well, and best of all I now have an ever present Physician who has surely healed all my diseases.

My case seems a very remarkable one to our family and to friends who have known me all my life. To me it is so natural now to be well, that I almost forget how I used to suffer. I have the deepest gratitude to God for Christian Science.—ETHEL MAY SYMMES, Hamilton, O.
