In January, 1909, while attending the state Legislature in St. Paul, a senator met a grief-stricken man whom he knew, on the street. He asked what the trouble was, and the man explained that he had brought his wife and small baby here and placed them in a sanitarium under the finest nerve specialist in the city, as his wife was mentally and physically unable to care for herself or the child. He had been told by the doctors that it would be from three to five months, at least, before she would recover, and unless she could stay there over a month he might as well take her away that day. It would cost seventy-five dollars a week, however, and as he could not afford that expense he was utterly disheartened.

Later they all removed to the hotel where the senator was stopping, and upon the advice of Christian Science friends they procured a Christian Science practitioner and nurse. In six hours after treatment was given, the wife talked naturally to her husband, saying quietly, "I believe we are going to be happier than we ever have been yet."
