On Feb. 14, 1915, I slipped on some ice in the garden and fell. When I got up my right arm was powerless, the bone between the elbow and shoulder pressing against my side in such a way as to prevent my hand from falling to its proper position by about five inches. The bone was broken and the shoulder dislocated. Intense pain prevented me from helping myself, so I applied for Christian Science treatment, which was given at once. The arm was not bandaged or supported in any way. Ten days later my hand was in its proper position, the bone had knitted, and there was no soreness to the touch. A short time after that the shoulder-bones slipped into place. On the first of March I returned to my work, which was running a drill-press in a machine shop, and daily realized an increase of strength and freedom in the use of my arm. This healing has been a cause of wonder among my acquaintances, some holding the thought of advanced age against me, as I was in my seventy-fifth year at the time.

I write this testimony with a feelign of deepest gratitude to God for His loving-kindness toward me, and to Mrs. Eddy, who so nobly worked to bring this teaching to the world for the benefit of humanity. This healing is only one of the many blessings received through Christian Science for which I am thankful.—S. A. Brain, Brainerd, Minn.
