A few years ago Christian Science came to our family

A few years ago Christian Science came to our family. This, as is so frequently the case, was through the wife, who was willing to lay aside creeds and dogmas and think for herself; brave enough to close her ears to the dictates of innate prejudice as well as to the criticism of public opinion. As a busy business man and a member of an orthodox church I, however, thought I had no time to devote to new ideas, or to follow, as I thought, strange gods.

About this time our boy was just entering school in a northern city, and owing to a nervous trouble we found it impossible to get him to attend. Though he was under the almost constant care of the family physician, he would remain in school only a few minutes, until the teacher would be compelled to send him home, and frequently he would return before he reached the building, crying as though his heart would break, and saying that he wanted to go but could not. This continued for several months, during which time I was bitterly opposed to Christian Science and refused to permit his being treated, though I was perfectly willing to do all I could in other ways; but one day I was pleased to be informed that he had attended school that day without a whimper. This was repeated to me several evenings, and finally one evening he climbed up on my lap and said, "Daddy, I have not missed a day at school for three weeks and I have not cried once, and if you will promise not to get angry I will tell you something." He then informed me that he had taken treatment in Christian Science and was no longer afraid.
