Christian Science has met our every need for the last seven years, and during that time we have seen many of the so-called children's diseases healed. A healing which I feel deeply grateful for is that of pink eye. Our boy, twelve years old, awoke one morning screaming with pain in one of his eyes. On looking at the inflamed, watery condition I knew that the doctor would call it pink eye. I immediately asked for help in Christian Science, and with the loving work of a practitioner the pain was entirely met in twenty-four hours; and in four days' time the inflamed condition had entirely disappeared. Any one familiar with the disease knows that there is always the fear of it spreading to the other eye; but by clinging steadfastly to the truth, and knowing that Truth is the only power, the other eye was not affected.

Under medical treatment the child would not have been allowed to use his eyes, but he was able to be about the house and to read, with no ill effect whatever. I had this trouble two different times, before coming into Christian Science, lying in a darkened room with an ice-bag on my eyes, suffering agony for three or four days and being confined to the house a week or ten days before all inflammation disappeared. This was just another proof to me of God's loving, protecting care. Christian Science has proved to be an ever present help, not only in overcoming physical ailments, but in business and daily life, and has helped me to overcome a great sense of fear.
