Given Her Up.

London. Saved by an nngel who
met hor at the gates of death and
bado her turn back to mortal life,
Miss Dorothy Kerln, who has been a
bedridden Invalid from tuberculosis
und diabetes, Is today running about
ber homo, 204 Mllkwood road, as
though she had never been 111 a day
In her life.
Miss Kerln, who is a beautiful girl
twenty-two years old, had been given
up to die by 37 doctors. Saturday
they announced that sho would dlo be
fore midnight. Sunday morning she
suddenly opened hor eyes. Her moth
er bent over her.
"Dolly, do you know mo?" sho
"Of course I do mamma," replied
the girl. "I am to get up. Tho angel
told mo to. An angel from heaven
met mo at the gateB of death, and
brought me back."
And tho girl did get up, seemingly
under a mysterious Influence, and ran
downstairs. A friend of tho family,
nn atheist, at sight of her fell on his
knecB, praying to God.
Not less remarkablo than tho
restoration of her physical health is
tho effect of her inexplicable experi
ence on her mind. Sho came forth
from her visit to tho valley of tho
shadow with a Bereno faith in an infl
nito power, a belief in a spiritual law,
a clarity of mental view and an elo
quence of expression usually acquired
only after years of hard study.
Miss Herln has written an open let
ter In reply to the many queries which
sho has received as to her recovery.
In this letter she says:
"I was conscious yesterday for the
Iirst time in several days. It seemed
to mo that I was slipping out of life
I heard tho whispers and sobs and
.prayers of those who lovo me best
Everything grew black. I did not
even think; I just drifted without an
effort, without a thought. Into deeper
"Suddenly I saw a light dazzling
brighter than any fire I had over seen
Stretched from out tho great golden
flame I saw two hands. Then I heard
a sweet voico say clearly, 'Dorothy,
your sufferings are over. Arise. 'You
can walk.' Then I heard mother ask
ing me if I know her.
"There is a science of religion as
well as a sclenco in every phase of
tho material universe. Wo live in tho
midst of wonderful lands. In my own
caso I realize that my long illness and
quiefness prepared mo to receive a
