It has always been my desire to express my gratitude for Christian Science through the Sentinel. I have been acquainted with its text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, since I was eight years old, and many beautiful demonstrations of healing have been made for others in our home, as well as for myself. Among them there is one of which I would like to speak.

I was attending a grammar school that had over eight hundred pupils, but I was the only Christian Scientist among them. I fell from the second story to the cement floor of the basement, down stone steps which were iron barred at the edge; but while I was falling I realized that God would take care of me. I was falling I realized that God would take care of me. I was unconscious when taken up, but when I came to, I still clung to the thought of God's allness. A physician and nurse were called, and the principal and several of the teachers were in the room where I was carried, while bandages were placed from my shoulders to my ankles. My mother was out of the city, and I knew that I could not ask any of those present to call for help from a Christian Science practitioner, so I felt that I must declare the truth for myself the best I knew how. The people began to leave me one by one, so I got up and asked one of the teachers to fasten my dress. I thanked all for their kindness, then put on my coat and walked eight blocks to my home.
