The reading of the testimonies in the Sentinel and Journal,...

The reading of the testimonies in the Sentinel and Journal, has wonderfully helped me, so I feel that one in due from me, giving my experience in Christian Science. Here I would pause to pay my homage to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, who has so patiently and lovingly led us forth out of darkness and despair into the glorious light of Truth. Love alone can repay her.

About eighteen years ago a young man with some knowledge of Christian Science came into these mountains—a somewhat remote part of California—to seek work. One day he handed a tract on Christian Science to a schoolteacher, who in turn passed it along to my brother, with a request that he read it to see what he thought of it. It seemed at first to arouse only a sense of ridicule, but later on a discussion on the merits of this faith took place with a lady who had come here with her husband, a mining man, and my brother became interested enough to send for other literature. Soon this little favor had blossomed forth into a beautiful faith, to knowledge; and in due time the literature was passed along as good tidings to others. How thankful I am that it came my way. Having but recently joined a church, I was hardly ready to investigate further; but the seed had been sown, and I too became a student of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures."

For a number of years previous to this time I had been troubled much with a stomach and bowel disorder, presumably inherited. I had consulted and been treated by four different doctors, but experienced no benefit until I became interested in this truth, when relief came immediately, and since that time a sense of relapse has been overcome. I have both seen and experienced many proofs of the efficacy of this teaching,—headache, toothache, colds, and rheumatism have been routed, each in its turn. The spiritual uplifting and relief from mental depression are but other reasons for the hope that is in me. I realize that my work is far from done. I can see much more to accomplish, but the work grows sweeter and more interesting with every accomplishment.—Ellis B. Clark, Bangor, Cal.
