Over a year ago, while crossing a bad place in a country road, I was thrown from a heavy coal wagon, and one wheel passed over my right arm, injuring it terribly. A man who witnessed the accident brought me to town in his buggy, and took me to a sanitarium, insisting that they were better prepared to care for me there than in my own home. I told them I wanted to go home as soon as the arm was dressed, and that I wanted Christian Science treatment; but they put me under chloroform and worked over my arm for several hours. When my son called to see why I had not come home, the nurse told him I was in a very critical condition, and that no one would be allowed to visit me for two days. MY son went at once to a Christian Science practitioner and laid the case before her, and she said she would give me absent treatment. I did not suffer any pain, and was pleased when my son told me I was having help in Christian Science. The third day the surgeon told me they were now sure of saving the arm, but that I would never be able to use it again. I, however, felt that all things were possible with God, and I did all I could to help myself. In ten days I was taken home, and the remark was made that anything like the healing of those wounds had never been seen.

In about three weeks I began to move my arm, and in three more weeks I went to the coal yards and did light work. I have been driving a team again for several months now. When the nurse asked the surgeon if he had ever known of a limb being used again after the ligaments had been severed, as in this case, he said, "It is beyond me; I don't know what to make of it." At another time he over me.—T. G. Williams, San Diego, Cal.
