It is a number of years since I was given up by the doctors, who said that there was no help for me, that I had inflammation of the liver and stomach, and valvular heart trouble. My husband had taken me to New York to see three specialists, who also said there was no help for me and simply told me to be just as careful as I could. After everything possible had been done I turned to Christian Science for help. At that time I had to be lifted about in bed, but after a practitioner had explained Christian Science to me somewhat, I was willing to give up and trust all to God. In less than one hour I got up out of bed well. The next day, when friends came who had heard that I was dying, I cooked dinner for them. I have not taken medicine from that day to the present time, but have relied wholly on Christian Science.

I had been a member of a denominational church since girlhood but was never satisfied, nor did I get the satisfaction I desired from the study of the Bible, until I became interested in Christian Science. Both my husband and I have had many wonderful demonstrations. We know that all ills can be overcome through the understanding of divine Principle, God.—(Mrs.) Ada Painter, Sparks, Nevada.
