Over eighteen years ago our attention was called to Christian Science by a friend who knew of some cures made by it. A copy of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, was lent to us, and I began the study, soon afterwards purchasing a copy for myself.

For years doctors had told me my lungs were diseased, and I had accordingly given up teaching. They had also advised me to go to a warmer climate; but owing to a great affection for home, their advice was not accepted. About two years after I took up the study of Christian Science, through lifting some heavy furniture my side was injured. A practitioner was asked to help me, and the trouble was soon overcome. A short time afterward I had occasion to have my lungs examined by a doctor. After carefully testing them, he said: "You've had a cavity in one lung but it is all healed. Yours is one of the very few cases that are cured."

In the years that have passed I have seen influenza, pneumonia, colds, burns, and other ills overcome. Dental work that the dentist said one had every reason to dread, was done painlessly; and joints that were solid have been made flexible. About six years ago a member of the family started one winter day for town, seven miles away. He had not been gone long when the weather changed from a bright, warm winter day to one of the coldest and worst days of the winter. Then to this student fear began to manifest itself in worry, until the sentence came, "God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," and thought was turned into channels of Truth. At early dusk the man returned. He said that he had never been out on such a bad day and suffered so little from the cold. Although one ear was nipped by the frost, it gave him no trouble.
