One of the many beautiful proofs of Truth's omnipresence which has been revealed to me was my cure from the supposed effects caused by coming in contact with a poison oak. One morning last spring I awoke to find my face in a very bad condition. My club sisters were quite worried about my illness, and although they knew that I was interested in Christian Science, they anxiously offered various remedies. I remained in my room during the day, reading Science and Health and trying to realize that there is only one power, and that is God, good. I seemed to suffer intensely all day and during the night, and the next morning my face was so much worse that I could take only liquid food. I telephoned by "long distance" for help, and a dear practitioner, knowing the fear of those surrounding me, invited me to her home. I immediately accepted the privilege, and putting on a heavy veil took the first train. She met me at the depot in the evening, and even as we walked to her home I commenced to feel a sense of relief. It was with reluctance that I consented to sit at dinner, but realizing that Love is everywhere, I made the effort. After dinner I had present treatment and rested very comfortably that night. Sunday morning I was able to eat breakfast with very little inconvenience, and spent the morning reading Science and Health and the Journal. During the evening we read together the Lesson-Sermon for the following Sunday.

What joy the next morning to find the swelling gone, and only a few scars remaining! I took the early train, and returned to my college work that afternoon. The girls were amazed to have me return so soon. One had remarked that it would take at least two weeks to cure me, but with Christian Science the demonstration had been made in two days. I am indeed grateful for this grand truth, and feel it to be all that is necessary in every emergency.—Jerita V. Blair, Vallejo, Cal.
