It is now some two and a half years since Christian Science was first brought to my notice. My mother was said to be suffering from an incurable disease, and on hearing of this doctrine which I was told healed the sick, I immediately sought to know more about it. I was directed to the nearest reading room, and on borrowing a copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," I quickly became interested in the subject and from that day to this I have regularly attended the services and studied the LessonSermon daily, and have been able on many occasions to apply the truth to some of my daily problems, with marked and beneficial results. I am extremely grateful to all those who have helped me to a better understanding of this beautiful religion, and I am grateful for improved general health, the healing of sprained ankles and one or two minor physical troubles of a more or less lifelong character. As for my dear mother, I have been enabled to place her with loving friends who are daily helping her to reflect more and more of divine Love, and a marked improvement in her general condition and character has already taken place. Certain physical inconveniences and discomforts, said to be incidental to her condition, have been overcome on the two occasions when these claims manifested themselves, and for these healings on her account I am deeply grateful.

I would like to relate an experience concerning a claim of possible unemployment. Last autumn, while in a situation that I had occupied for over three years, I was offered an administrative and progressive post in another firm. The new work seemed full of promise and, after a good deal of quiet mental work about it, in which I received the loving help of a friend, I accepted the offer and resigned the position I then held. Within one month of my commencing with the new firm, however, I was told that their plans for growth and expansion had fallen through and they asked me to make my own arrangements as they now had no vacancy for me. At first, I confess I felt a bit upset and disappointed, but in a short time ceased to feel any further fear or anxiety for the future, knowing that as "day by day the manna fell," so, as my needs arose, they would be met by divine Love. There had been a mutual probationary period of three months agreed to between us before entering upon the new work, so that I found my immediate needs were already met. Nevertheless, in accordance with the desire of my employers (who were not Scientists) I placed my name upon several employment agencies' lists and inserted an advertisement in our daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor. Though I had many interviews with prospective employers, nothing came of them, until the very last week of my "three months," when an opportunity presented itself of rendering temporary secretarial assistance for a week or ten days to a Christian Scientist; so that before I had actually left one post there was another ready for me. I entered upon my new duties the very next morning with joy and gratitude, and at the end of the time specified I was asked to continue for a further period, and so the time went on until nearly ten weeks had elapsed, when I was given a week's notice, as the work I was engaged upon had come to an end. During that week the way again opened for fresh work, and I entered upon this immediately. It has been a wonderful experience and I am more thankful than I can say for the valuable lessons it has taught me. I am also grateful that I have been permitted to pass on this wonderful truth to others and have had the pleasure of seeing them benefited in various ways. Truly, "God is good;" and "his mercy endureth for ever."—(Miss) Blanche W. Evans, London, England.
