It is now about five years since I began the study of Christian Science, and all time we have been many miles from any Scientists, but the Sentinel comes each week like a dear friend, offering good tidings to all who will read ; and what a help it has been ! The testimonies are so good, and I realize that God is leading His people out of bondage.

I wish to give my testimony to the truth. My son, eleven years old, was taken with a very high fever. I treated him as best I could, reading often from the Bible and Science and Health to quiet him. My father and mother are not interested in Christian Science, and they thought I should call a doctor, which made it hard for us. We were over a hundred miles from the Christian Science practitioner, but I talked with her over the telephone, and she began to treat him at once. This was about seven o'clock in the evening, and that night the boy slept better. The next day his temperature was much lower ; and in a few days he was out at play. This is only one of many proofs to us that God is an ever-present help in time of trouble.
