WOMEN OF KEY WEST

THEY WILL CRE FOR THE WOUNDED
The Cob rent of Mary Imsaacmlate Wilt
Be Turned Into a Hospital b Well
Salted to Present Needs Xa Creeds!
Lines Will Be Kecoj-niied.'
American women in Key West are
learning how to make dainty invalid
dishes for wounded soldiers and sailors.
Some of them have even taken lessons
in the art of scraping liut, and the
household ragbags have been overhaul
ed in the pursuit of old linen and mus
lin for bandages. The Cuban women
there since the war between the Span
iards and insurgents began have had a
relief organization, Hospitalarias Cn
banns by name, and they, too, are pre
paring to act as unrses at the hospitals
in Key West or in the field.
The fact that Admiral Sampson ac
cepted the offer of Sister Alary Floren
tine, the mother superior of the Con
vent of Alary Immaculate, to turn the
convent iuto a hospital, is regarded as
conclusive evidence that Key West is
to be the principal point of naval and
military concentration and the base of
supplies. The Convent of Mary Immac
ulate is the coolest, cleanest, prettiest
and largest dwelling place in Key West.
There aro doors aud windows open to
every breeze aud viud, for it stands in
the center of a ten acre tract which is
covered with semitropical trees aud
flowering shrubs. It is the homo of the
Sisters of tho Holy Name and is really
a school, for the sisters are teachers.
They caino to tho island 30 years ago,
md ten years later work began on tbo
convent buildiug, which had a woman
for its architect Mother Theresa of Je
sus, whb'VJrew the plans. The structure
is modeled after a Cuban villa, aud it,
wjth two commodious schuolhouses near
at hand, will Lo able to accommodate
at least 400 sick and wounded men.
Each of tho school buildings is 100
foet long by 40 feet vide. Each of the
two floors, of each sohnol buildiug is
one iinun uso room. It wonld seem that
the bnilder of the scboolhouses had in
mind the present emergency, for they
are admirably suited fur hospital pur
poses. Wjdo galleries or piazzus gird
each floor, aud they can be transformed
into hospital wards by hanging canvas
or reed curtains along the opeu side.
The couveut is 1,"0 feet long by 40 feet
wide, bnt tho piazzas add at least 30
feet to tho length ami width. Running
back is a wide one story extuusiou, used
for the kitchen, dining room and store
rooms. The lower floor of tho main
building may bo thrown into ouo large
room, for tho schoolrooms are separated
by wide folding doors. When these aro
thrown open tbero is a room ir0 feet
long, varying from 30 to 40 feet iu
width. Tho generous galleries of the
convent may easily bo converted into
wards by canvas curtains. Tho eight
acres of the convent and the two acres
in which stand the school buildings
furnish ample cleared space for hospital
tents, several of which aro on their way
to Key West.
Of course tho hospital service of the
army aud navy will have to furnish
cots, operating tables and tho other
paraphernalia of modern hospital serv
ice, and a largo shipment of these nec
essaries Una been made at Washington,
cousigued to this point.
Father Friend, pastor of St Mary's
Mar of the trea church and tho head of
this parish, is co-operating with Sister
Mary Florentine aud the other 23 Sis
ters of tho Holy Name in this work of
love aud mercy. He says that church
lines will bo obliterated, for the convent
hospital will show uo sectarian fate
to sick and wounded men. Trotcstaut
and Cutholio aliko will bo welcomed.
nursed and restored to health if willing
uearts and gentle bands can do it
Besides the couveut hospital tho ma

service. Tho wonnded Maiuo men w ere
