Teddy Takes His Stand

[Of Special Interest to Children]

One day Teddy and his little friend Susan were playing with a neighbor's dog. The neighbor had brought each of the children a lollipop, and their afternoon was filled with much joy. However, Teddy dropped his lollipop, and both he and the playful dog went for it at the same time. Teddy retrieved the candy, but the dog did not wish to give in so easily. In the tussle the dog bit Teddy's lip.

Susan's mother and the neighbor expressed much fear, and seeing the extent of the wound, they exclaimed, "Let's take him to the hospital."

Immediately Teddy stopped crying and stated quite firmly, "I'm a Christian Scientist."
