In the columns of a daily paper which are presided over by a woman and devoted to women's interests, I read the following lines: "Head noises are, in my opinion, among the few ills to which human flesh is heir that are non-abatable. I have yet to hear of one sufferer from them who has been permanently relieved by any course of treatment." This statement aroused in me the consciousness that I have not yet acknowledged through our periodicals my healing of the above-mentioned ill, also of deafness. I had heard through one ear only for many years, and came to Christian Science for healing of severe nervous trouble and other ills. I was under treatment sixteen months, during which time these noises and deafness increased to such an extent that I could not hear the organ or congregational singing. I went through a class, while in a slightly improved condition, sitting directly in front of my teacher in order to hear the instructions. I had treatment for all these troubles, and finally stopped with the knowledge that the work of overcoming the deafness must be mine. During all this time I had periods of improvement, but invariably relapsed into the old state. I attended all lectures and services, whether I could hear or not, and at times thought I could not stand the "buzzing" another day. There were hours of deepest gloom and discouragement, but like our Leader, "I pressed on through faith in God, trusting Truth, the strong deliverer, to guide me into the land of Christian Science, where fetters fall" (Science and Health, p. 226). One day, while riding on a train, I heard what seemed a terrific explosion, and looked around in great fear, only to see tranquil faces and to hear conversation in the end of the car. I heard at last, plainly! But this joy was of short duration, and I suffered a relapse again after some weeks. At another time, while running a sewing machine, which I could not hear making its revolutions, I was tempted greatly by discouragement, but met this by repeating audibly the Doxology. Then I declared aloud that these noises could not drown the still, small voice of Truth, and again I heard. It was a slow, but mighty triumph, and thanks to Christian Science, as given to all in Mrs. Eddy's teachings, I am free now, and can sit, if need be, in the amphitheater of our Academy of Music and enjoy a Christian Science lecture without fear of losing a word. This is only one part of the healing which has been vouchsafed to me and for which I reverently thank God, who has blessed me with good things.
