MISS LONG AS A NURSE.
Daughter of the Secretary of the Navy
in Red Cross Service.
(New York Herald.)
For the first time since the civil war
the grim walls of the naval hospitals
j adjoining the New York navy yard
harbor ministering angels in the guise
if white robed nurses. For more than
:i week the staff of male nurses has
been augmented by four bright laced
voting women, all eager to serve their
country by attending to the wants of
nele Sam's gallant tars who are laid
p for repairs.
And in those four charming volun?
teers the American girl born to wealth
social position has a shining exam?
ple For one is no less a personage
than Miss Helen Long, daughter of the
?rotary of the navy. The other three
e Miss Long's classmates at Johns
Hopkins Uunversity, where they are
taking a course of medicine. They are
all of good family, and all have left
homes of ease and luxury to assume
their duties as nurses.
Miss Long's companions are Miss
Mabel Heid. Miss Mubel Austin and
! Dorothv Sims. They are very
much in earnest, all of them. They
?/.<? that the course they have amo?
unt for themselves is no child's
plav. But at the same time, while they
have the satisfaction of knowing that
they are doing good work in the cause
if humanity, they would modestly tell
you. should you be so fortunate as to
meet thorn, that they are gaining a val?
uable experience in the line of tfieir
chaseh profession. For all four expect
to become physicians.
Thev would tell you that they are
not nurses in reality: that thev don't
I know enough about it to assume the dig?
nity of the. title. They would tell von
that thev are merely spending their
I summer vacation where the experience
rill be beneficial to them when they re?
turn to their studies in the fall. They
.will admit that they "help around"
and. if you press the point, they will
not deny assisting operations involv
i Ing the amputation of a limb. But
: are not trained nurses?oh, no;
thev don't claim to be that.
But there Is ouite another side to
he story. Should you stop to talk with
j any of the battered jackies tossing on
j the white cots or hobbling about the
shndv hospital grounds you would h?nr
a different tale. The hospital ship Sol?
ace brought a lot of them from the
i South a short time ago. and some of
survivors or the Maine are still
there. Some are minus legs. some
rms. and still others are suffering from
lio Southern climate, nuite as deadly
I as the enemy's shot and shell.
Ask nuv of these battered bulks what
hev think or the service of Miss hone
and her companions. The modesty of
the fair volunteers and their tendency
0 underestimate their services may pos
Ibly have led von to believe that, after
ill. their services are not a matter of
j much importance to anybody. But a=k
ny or the patients, and hear what
hev have to say.
Everv ore of thpm. to a man, will
wear by the fp".- fair nurses* One

with his remaining good hand a with

I my inspection. ' Miss Lone- gave trie

It as Iiis first day out in the

Lieut. John Baptiste Bernadou, who
was wounded, is one of the must dash?
ing and brave young officers in the
navy. An expert in all that pertains
to torpedoes. Lieut. Bernadou was in?
spector In charge of the construction
of the Winslow and, knowing her from
the keel up. he was put in command
of her immediately on her acceptance
by the Government.
Lieut. Bernadou was born November

Hay, who owned half the town and the
big glass works there.
One of the most pronounced and
pleasing mirages thai was ever seen
from Rochester was noticeable recent?
ly, and, through llie peculiar powers of
the strange freak of nature, Canada's
shore could be plainly seen with the
naked eye, as could also what appeared
to be the woods on the shore of the
northern boundary of old Ontario. Ia
the north it was clear and the pink sky
showed. Between the pink and tho
American shore of Lake Ontario could
distinctly be seen the opposite shore of
the great body of water. The lake is
about sixty miles wide directly opposite
Rochester, so that those wno saw the
mirage looked through about sixty
seven miles of space and saw land.
With the aid of a glass the trees on
the opposite side could be seen to bet?
ter advantage. The long strip of lead
colored shore and the water contrasted
well with the pink sky beyond, the
whole forming a pretty picture. No
boats were to be seen on the lake, how?
ever. Lake Ontario seemed to he little
wider than the Genese above the city
and it was difficult for some to believe
that they really saw Canada.
Those who keep track of the strange
things called mirages say that every
year about this time one can be seen.
They come just as the storms are dis?
For the Preservation of Boilers.
The practise adopted by the French
Navy for the preservation of boilers not
in use is different from that generally
in vogue, and it is worth at least mak?
ing a note of. They seem to take the
bull by the horns. Instead of emptying
the boiler they fill it completely full of
fresh water and then add to the water a
certain amount of milk of lime or soda.
The solution used is not so strong for
boilers with small tubes. It is intended
to be just sufficient to neutralize any
acidity of the water. Particular atten?
tion is given to the outsides of the
tubes if they are not to be used for a
long time. They ate painted with red
lead or coal tar as far as they are ac?
cessible, and for the rest a protective
coating is obtained by burning tar, the
smoke of which will iorm a coating ol
soot. Besides this the boiler casing i;
closed and kept air-tight, after samt
quicklime has been placed inside.?
