cians threaten me with arrest, also, but I walk straight

on, knowing well in whom I trust.

E. I. R., Wauseon, Ohio

A little over two years ago, while living in Pittsburgh,

my wife and I had Christian Science brought to our at-

tention. We were at once interested, and bought a copy

At the time, Mrs. A— was suffering with severe belief

of astigmatism of the eyes. She had been treated by a

number of specialists, during seven years, the last being

the late Dr. Agnew of New York, who prescribed two

sets of glasses. He said that he could do nothing more

for her, as the trouble was organic; that she must wear

glasses constantly; that if she attempted to go without,

she would become either blind or insane. The glasses

were in operation, and still life had become a burden

from constant pain, when Christian Science came to our

thought that she did not need the glasses, and she at once

abandoned them, and went about her usual duties. In

about two weeks from that day the eyes were perfectly

healed, and are well and strong to-day.

pain. As the revelation of the All-good appeared to

of healing, to my sense became void. Chronic beliefs of

disease of twenty years' standing, dimness of sight from

the belief of age, all disappeared instantly; indeed,

material life seemed a blank. The why? I could not

explain, but this I did know, in this realm of the real I

found joy, peace, rest, love to all, unbounded, unspeak-

able. Human language had lost its power of expression,

for no words came to me; and in all this six years of bliss

I still have found no words to tell my new-found life in
