Mrs. Eugenia Dunlap Potts,
Mrs, J. W. McConnell,
We wish to draw the attention
of the public to the Protestant
Infirmary. That was the pri
mary consideration when The
Lexington Record made its first
appearance. It met with a heart
ly reception from a generous pub
lic, and whenever it is noted
that The Lexington Record do
nates to the Infirmary, we wish
our patrons to consider the gift
as a part of their subscriptions,
to this beautiful and comfortable
home where they will be qarefuly
nursed by the tender hands" of
those trained in a knowlege of
the schools, and where the board
will be as moderate as can be ob-
laiiicd elsewhere...:- The : aim A
the Infirmary is to do the great
est good with the least expense
possible to the sufferer who seeks
its sheltering arms. Five dollars
per week is the price of a very
comfortable room and the atten
tion bestowed is worth double

The proceeds of the Lexington

Whoever lends a helping hand
to the Record will, in just such
measure as he gives, be caring
for the sick, who have no other
refuge when they need medical
attention. These patients, be it
remembered, are taken in from all
sects and all walks in life.
AUXT LEAN'S LETTER.
A Stroll Among Pleasant Refuges.
Dear Friends: The Prot
estant Infirmary', which you now
know to be such a haven for the
suffering, has a fresh coat of pink
kalsomine on the walls of the
men's upper ward. The floors
shine, and the snow-white beds
are. places of sweet rest indeed.
The foundation is dug for the
annex, and work is going on in
all departments. The sweet
faced nurses are all out waiting
upon the sick, at their own
homes all except nurse Maria,
whose bright eyes and ready
smile make her' a very sunbeam.
Such a 'sad case was lately in her
cliarge.j ;2young man who had
had his 'leg injured a year ago,
in the wheat field, was brought
there suffering fearful agony.
He had, from the first, refused to
haye amputation performed, but
now he was obliged 'to yield.
The 'physician told him his
chance for life was, at best, a bare
possibility, but without surgery,
there was no hope. The Rev.
Mr. Ward visited him daily, im
parting spiritual healingv to his
soul wounded by the inroads of
sin. When the day for the ope
ration came the sufferer sent for
the minister to baptize him, and
then went to the surgeon's knife
at' peace with God and man. Fie,
lingered three days and then he
lay still and pale in his winding
sheet, neatly dressed, with pure
white flowers in his hands. His
two risters came and bore him
away on tne sunny Sabbath day.
Mother Cronley gradually pass
ed from the condition of hospi
tal patient to that of mere in
firmity, so she was removed to
the Home of the Friendless,
among the other old ladies who
are so tenderly cared for. The
afflicted foot I wrote you about
is so far healed as to permit her
to walk a little way at a time,
and she bears the pressure of a
slipper. May she go on to a
There has been no one, as yet
in the Polly Monroe cot, but one
baby patient has been in nurse
Maria's charge in his father's
luxuriant home. Little Robert
was struck in the eye by a play
mate, and a trouble arose which
required just such hands and
eyes and feet and head as were
sent to him. How he loves her!
He is going to send her his pic
ture, that she may always re
member her first baby patient.
Mrs. Bettie was not much bet
ter, yet it was deemed expedient
to transfer her to St. Joseph's
Hospital, where there is more
room for cases like hers.
Jennie, the pretty working
girl, went away with her arm in
a sling to the mother whose face
she had longed to see when in
such pain in her sunny attic
chamber. At Nicholasville she
met with the tidings that her
mother was dead, and that her
little sister Annie and brother
Willie had been sent to an Or
phan's Home. What a blow was
that! Think, dear girls, how
desolate Jennie must have felt.
A helpless orphan on the thresh
old of life. The shock was bad
for her and she is now back
again at the retreat which none
ever seem quite willing' to leave.
She sits with her right arm
bound in soothing wraps. "How
nice it was of you to put me in
the paper," she said; "there have
been several such sweet girls to
read to me. They must have
read about me." Then, her pale
cheeks flushing, she said, plead
ingly, "When I get well, won't
you keep me to find a nice place
to work?" Let us keep her case
in view, friends.
The old paralytic down-staifs
is so much better that he. will
remain in liis present quarters
some, days yet. The younger
man with malarial fever was dis
charged well, and if prudent will
probably stay so. Father Morgan
was so lonely in his terrible suf-. '
his wife and children, but Nurse
Maria goes to him every day
with her soothing remedies, and
gives him all the comfort he can 9
have while "only waiting." Dark
is his earthly pilgrimage, ' but
thanks be to the Divine Healer,
whom he so. confidently expects
to meet in the bye-aud-bye;
Mother Taylor flits about her
household duties, always ready
to do a good turn.
THE CHURCH HOME
Does its steady, good work. Miss.
Patsy is well and busy. Miss
Maggie, whose pallid face beto
kened an early release when 1
last wrote, ha? passed to the bet
ter land, where there shall be no
more suffering. The end was
peaceful, and one morning, in
the bright September days, the
sun rose just long enough to light
her earthly path to the eternal
light beyond when all was over.
Fler remains were borne by the
faithful sister-nurse to Cynthi
ana. The other inmates of this
comfortable abode are about as
The Home of the Friendless
has had the addition of Mother
Cronly, already mentioned. Aunt
Patsy the oldest of them all, has
been very sick and could . no
longer cut carpet rags for Mother
Steele's waiting fingers. These
old ladies have made many yards
of good carpet for the Home.
Aunt Amy and Dick, down .in
the basement- are on better terms
ever. He chatters and scolds
like a parrot. Though the
house was not exactly built for
friendless chickens, Dick's claims
are peculiar. Deserted by his
mother, while yet imprisoned in
