TREATMENT OF NERVOUS DISEASES. In taking charge of a nervous patient the nurse should see that every reasonable cause of annoyance is removed. Rest, quiet and freedom from care is one of the best prescriptions, mid whatever frets and irritates, retards recovery. The attention should be occupied and th" mind diverted without lieing fatigued. Symptoms should never be dwelt upon and discussed, but quietly disposed of in a few kind and clvering words: while some measure is taken for their alleviation. Some of the physicians who make the treatment of these ailments a speciality in their practice, order complete rest in bed for their patients. They are separated from their friends and put in charge of an efficient nurse and nothing that can harass or disturb, is al'owed to come near them, ''his treatment is very effectual in some cases, but it can hardly be carried out at home except under peculiarly favorable circumstances.

Hints to Wives and Mothers. [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 September 1889

j Hints to Wives and Mothers. MOTHERS AND SON.- Most boys go through a period when they are in need of a patient one at home. They are awkward and clumsy, sometimes strangely wilful and perverse, and they are desperately conscious of themselves and very sensitive to the least word of censure or attempt at restraint Authority freís them. They are leaving child hood, but they have not yet reached the sober good sense of manhood. They are an easy prey to the tempter and Sophist, Perhaps they adopt sceptical views in their desire to prove that they are independent and can do their own thinking. Now the mothers influence tells. Her boy needs her more now than when he lay in his cradle. Her finei insight and serener faith may hold him fast and prevent his drifting into dangerous courses. At all events, there is very much that only a mother can do for her SOD, in the critical period of which I am thinking It is well for him if she has kept the fresh brightness of her youth so that she can ...

Worn Out [Newspaper Article] — The Dawn — 2 September 1889

Worn Out No, she was not strong, she had never been very strong. Farmer Grey knew it when he married her. Eight children called her mother. She made all their clothes and did her own housework, and yet ' mother was not strong.' Farmer Grey said it often, and always regretfully. Perhaps he was unselfish enough to wish that she were stronger for her own sake, but 1 fear not. He was a very robust, active man and exceedingly anxious to ' get along* in the world. Therefore, I fear that his regret for mother's feebleness was simply a reg-et that she could not do more to aid him in his 'getting along' schemes. She herself regretted that she was not stronger. "Father works so hard," she would say ; "I feel that I am not as much help to him as I might be if I were a real strong woman. " What more would she have done ? What more could she have done ? And, most of all, what more should she have done ? She kept the house in order. She did a loving, God fearing mother's duty by her children. She...
