In the winter of 1908 I had a severe cold, my head and lungs giving me great distress. One night I asked my wife to help me in Christian Science, and relief came very quickly. I awoke to find that it was morning, and I had no further trouble. Some time before this I had an enlargement on the right side of my body, which was very painful, being much inflamed. It spread rapidly and presented an alarming appearance, but I had no pain after calling my wife's attention to the swealing, and in a few days it was all gone, although I had insisted that it could not be healed without breaking. — Z. Richey, Yankton, S. D.

With a heart full of gratitude I would like to tell of an experience in Christian Science. Last spring our fourteen-year-old boy was taken suddenly ill. The pains grew so severe by the following morning, which was Sunday, that he asked for a physician. When the latter came, he stated that there was peritoneal inflammation and appendicitis. Under the medical treatment the pains would disappear for a while, but the boy kept growing weaker. A few days later a second physician was consulted, and after a thorough examination the physicians declared that an immediate operation would be necessary. To this I could not consent, and I decided that the boy should be treated in Christian Science. The physicians respected my faith in God's help, but said that, in case God should not be willing to help, it might possibly be too late to perform an operation. I, however, held to my decision, and asked a practitioner to treat the boy.
