WHY NURSES GET TIRED NIGHT IN THE WARDS (By Lucy E. Ashby, in "The Daily Mall.") Nine p.m. Night nurse is beginning h«r twelve hours' duty. The ward is a study in repose. All the lights except two. were put out half an hour ago, and under one of these day sister is completing her re port. Nurse glides up to her for in structions. They speak in whispers. '^Rather a heavy ward to-night," says sister. "There's a fractured base been admitted and an appendicitis. And—let me see (glancing at her records)— Brown's on the danger list, and very likely his people will be along. Jones's operation has not gone very well—been a good deal of hemorrhage; keep an eye on him. I've left the tourniquet ready to tighten if necessary. And there's little Tommy in the corner there. Fearfully homesick. I brought his bed nearer the fire. You'd better cheer him up a bit if he should wake during the night." VIGIL. BEGINS "Good night," she adds, rising; And 1 nurso begins her vigil. Lamp in hand, : sho makes a...

INDIA'S POET HOW THE NEWS ARRIVED [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
INDIA'S POET HOW THE NEWS ARRIVED A little after four the boys spread over the great treeless plain which surrounds the Santinikctan, dividing into four games of football and one of cricket (writes "Conrad of Elsass" in "The Westminster Gazette"). In No vember the sun sinks very fast; it is still hot at four; yet cold and dark long before half-past Ave. I joined the cricketers, small boys who played really very well. part in their game was that of In structor; I showed them how to bowl oflC-breaks. Darkness fell quickly. After the cricket came what Is called the "entertainment period." The students take it for granted that the sahibs who visit them, a small company, arc entertaining persons, and will occupy this hour. "Mr A al ways addresses us, and Mr P docs; so you will." I did. It was a glorious moonlight, and thev sat on their strips of matting on the plain behind the Asram (Asylum). They got ten minutes of Bengali and rather more of English. After I had "entertained" them, boys...

LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
LITTLE BRAIN WAVES. All a woman wants is to bo wantod. The self-niude man nover quite gets the job finished. Young man, don't go to the devil before you are dead. A man laughs at scars when a wo man throws things at him. A woman's weapons are smiles and tears; u man's are cheques. The fool and his money keep many clever people from starving. A woman will forgive a mnn every thing except another woman. Some girls can no more learn how to flirt than a fish can learn how to swim. With some girls a clear complexion is more important than a clear con science. A woman con generally damp a young man's ardor by throwing him over board. Tho man who is not conceited over his business doesn't deserve to have any. "When a woman cheapens herself she soon learns that men do not care for bargains. You can always score off a despondent suffragette by telling her to buck up and bo a man. You can tell how much respect a man has for a girl by tho way ho puts his arms around her. To be original is to b...
Odd Ways of Telling the Time. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 6 February 1914
Odd Ways of Telling the Time. A primitive way of marking time in Egypt—and which, by tho by, is still in use among the natives of the upper part of the country—is to plant a palm in tho open ground, and arrange twelve stones around it in a circle, the sha dow cast by the plant indicating the hour. Near the entrance hall to the Maid stone Museum an ingenious cannon sundial may bo seen. A burning glass is focussed carefully 011 the touch hole so that exactly at noon, when the sun is shining, tho cannou is fired off auto matically. In the sixth century an instrument was in us3 in China which indicated tho time bv tho weight of water as it fell from tlio beak of a bird into a vessel on a balance. Each pound represented a quarter of an hour. The sand-glass was almost universal ly employed in places of worship dur ing the sixteenth century. Even now, in some of our old churches, hour-glass stands of elegant workmanship are still to be seen. A very primitive timekeeper is in use among the ...
