A powerful, frightened horse threw me to the ground and trampled upon me, finally himself falling upon me several times, until the doctors declared I could not live because of broken ribs, crushed lungs, and rupture. They wished to take me into their care but I refused, sending for a Scientist instead, as soon as I became conscious. In a short time the swelling of the lungs subsided so that I was enabled to breathe comfortably. She spoke silent words of "peace" to me, which, in spite of the professional verdict to the contrary, restored me sufficiently to enable me to walk, at the end of four days, to my home a half mile distant. In three weeks I was strong, and working as usual.— Mt. Vernon, Iowa.
