XANTHIPPE AT THE AUGUS
GALES OF THAT
Dear Advertiser: It has been
quite six weeks now since I have
beeb away from Edgefield, aud
this is the first opportunity I have
had to wiite to you, and to tell you
how much I've missed you in these
weeks that have flown by.
I have been a bit home-dick, too,
this afternoon, for the first time,
and long for old familiar faces and
voices; however, my heart and soul
are in Carolina to-night. I an not
sitting in my room at the city hos
pital, writing to you, but in the
dear old Baptist church this Sab
bath evening, listening to Dr.
Gwaltney, and I never tire of hear
ing him, and many kind and true
friends are gathered near me, and
I hear the pleasant remarks aud
feel the tender grasp of the hand
after the sermon is over. I won
der if any of you will think of me
lo-night, and say a kind word
Well, here I am at the 'Training
School for Nurses,' at thn city hos
pital, a handsome brick building
on Washington street. The hos
pital comprises two stories, with
long corridors on each flour, with
five wards, including the maternity
ward. These wards are for the
poor patients who are not able to
pay. They are large and com
fortable, with white walls,-well
lighted, ventilated, and heated by
furnace. Each ward contains ten
iron cots, five on each side all in a
r,ow, and kept in exquisite order.
Everything is carried on scien
tifically. The many patients who
come and are treated, convalesce
and pass on :, aud are replaced by
others. They are nursed, bathed,
dressed, and have their medicines
given them. Their meals are pre
pared and served on the Northern
plan, and all fits in so beautifully
that you do not, can not, make a
The pay patients have beautiful
private rooms luxuriously furnish
ed. The "'Davidson room'' all in
pale blue tints with lace hangings,
pictures, dainty screens, and bed
with fleecy sides down comforts,
?nd the pink room equally as hand
some are two I mention.
The whole building is heated by
furnace;and lighted both by gas
and electricity. Hot and cold wa
ter pipes in all the bath rooms.
There is a parlor or office on both
the first and second floors, and a
spacious dining room where good
fare is served. The poor tired
nurses have nice comfortable
rooms to take refuge in after eve
ry days work is done.
You should see me getting up in
the gray dawn, donning my uni
form of blue aud white seersucker,
long white apron and kerchief, and
little mob cap; I am certainly
transformed. Most of the curses
are young and attractive. Several
are from South Carolina, one dark
eyed Spanish looking girl from
from Columbia; another, Miss
Stephens, my admiration, with a ,
face like a picture all roses aud
dimples, and sparkling nonchalant
manners, a former Georgia belle,

nurse ; and lovely Mrs. Saunders/

honest, true, and faithful in their ;
The faculty consists of all the 1
leading physicians of Augusta. A
great many operations are per
formed, one or two almost every 1
day, in the large operating room ;
with amphitheatre attached. The

.rations. I witnessed two, the firp,t

But I saw Dr. Hull perform an !
operation for cataract, which was i
Dr. Hull is as good as he is '
sreat. Ho carried the nurses ac- [
companied by Miss Schindel, the 1
superintendent, to the opera a few '
Wenings ago. We had a moot <
charming evening. After the play, '
we were taken to his beautiful '
nome, where we had fruits and I
wine, aud also the pleasure of ;
meeting Mrs. Hull. I am'.old thal 1
Dr. Hull is good as well as distill- .

One of the trained nurses gives
the massage, which is a kind of
knending or rubbing with I he.
hands, and has a hypnotic effect
upon the patient. The Superinten
dent cf this finely conducted San
atarium, yen would expect to find
a woman giant like in statue, tall,
stately, and all that, but indeed
she is slim, quite petite, pretty and
lovable, a perfect rose of a woman.
You wonder how she takes all the
responsibili?y upon her slender
shoulders, but she has energy and
genius, and was born to command.
She has eleven nurses and, ex
cepting my unworthy self,
they are young, and look piquant
in this uniform, but I must con
fess it is not becoming to me.
Well after being beaten up in
the gray dawn by the night nurses,
we tumble out of warm beds, turn
on the light, dress, go out to break
fast, then fly upstairs, attend to
the baths, thc breakfast, adminis
ter medicines take temperatures,
have the wards put to rights, and a
thousand duties pertaining to the
sick. We bathe patients in bed,
change their clothes, make egg
noggs. milk punches, milk shakes,
beef tea, koumiss, roll bandages,
pilton mustard plasters etc.
We have attended services at
the Green street Baptist church
and heard two fine sermons from
Dr. Burroughs, preacher aud ora
tor. ? fancy his sermons are on
the order of Henry Ward Beecher.
I liked them, and think him de
vout and good, an orator with a
tinge of sarcasm.
Labelle Stephens carried me to
St. Paul's la6t Sunday afternoon
to vespers, she beiug a davont
Episcopalian while I am a zealous
Baptist! I seemed to lay all care
and labor away as I pass?d through
the gate, and under the shade of
those giant old oaks, aud entered
the portal of the great church. A
diuj light pervaded the structure,
and the many tapers shone upon
arched ceiling, chancel, fine me
morial windows, and the sculptur
ed forms of St. Michael, and Ga
