Into tho most useful clinnnclB ns It Is
to turn tho courso of timloj but tho ob
servation can hnrdly bo nvolded that,
If sonic of tho many prlvato efforts re
ferred to nbovo had been devoted to
this purposo Instead of to enterprises
moro attrncllvo and heroic, tho Inci
dence of relief would hnvo boon morn
Justly apportioned nnd tho nggrcgato
of benefit largely Inci cased. Indeed
tho advantages, both economic nnd
mllltaiy, aio so obvious that It would
appear to have been tho duty of tho
nnny medical department to taho an
Inltlntlvo In this direction. But tho
secret pages of tho innnual contain no
mention of convalescent homes, so
tncro tho matter ended,
"At present nt least ono-thlid of the-
beds in a general hospital aro occupied
by convalescents who rcqulro no nurs
ing nnd hardly nny medical treat
ment, who sit about nil day chatting
nnd smoking, make their own beds and
generally 'do themselves.
"Cases of serious Injury to men, who,
though their wounds nro healed, linvo
iceolvcd tho nervous shock of a bullet
through tho body mo properly sent

or Hplon Kop I saw flvo men, wounded
In thnt disastious engagement, Iving

Ono was shot through tho upper bark
there was a cross flro from tlirco
sides tho bullet going out In front
close to tho heart; In another case tho
bullet hod entered tho thigh and come
out through tho mlddlo of tho stomach.
Thoy had been transported nil tho woy
f i om tho Tugeln by road nnd rail and
sen, and again by i nil nnd load, to
where they lay. Both wounds were
perfectly healed and only showed small
lound seais; but tho shock to tho nerv
ous system lcmnliied. Such meii can
taek no nioio part In this war. Of I
many others their fighting days are!
finished. Their right plnco Is nt home
among their families and friends.
"With tho vast majority of tho
wounded tho caso Is different. Whether
It Is tho climate or tho skill with which
the antiseptic dressing has been ap
plied nt tho fiont making 'sepsis' nl
most nn unknown condition In tho
baso hospitals, or tho cleanness of the
wounds mado by tho long thin bullet
with Its swift pencil ntlon, or nil tlirco
cniif.e3 together, tho general rate of
recovery Is quite bewildering."
