Mrs. Clara Chapman Morse has
written ia "beautiful tribute to the mem
ory of Miss Margaret Giles, the first
visiting nurse of the city, who died t
year ago as the result of too close
application to her work. The letteiv

Another year has passed and one.
Autumn is again here and its golden
beauty almost faded. The sunflowers
are dead. The song birds are silent.
All this death end decay reminds us
that as plant life fad3s and decays, so
! do our Jives fade away and pe pass
from this life to a life beyond.
Our hearts are ead today as mem
ory returns to our meeting a year ago,
when Miss Giles, to whose untiring
efforts we owe the existence of the
association, was with us.
7t was she who first started the work
of the Visiting Nurses' association in
Miss Giles knew no such word as ;
failure. She overcome all obstacles, and
there were many in the early days.
She gave her life, in fact, to the work.
Those of us who knew her Intimately,
know that she went beyond her
strength every day of her life, and
when sickness came she had no re
sistance and life went out.
Although this life Is not with us in
person today, her memory lingers in
our hearts. She has made for herself
a lasting memory in the hearts of the
many sick and poor and suffering ones
to whom she administered during the
years of her .work as visiting nurse
in our city.
When I think of that frail little body
She came to me in her gentle way
and .cared for me so tenderly, and for
that care I feel that I owe her this
But let us turn now to the living
and give words of encouragement and
cheer to .Miss Giles' successor, Miss
Flanagan, and Miss Turnbull, her as
sistant. One new department has been estab

my heart and that is "The baby wel
If there is anything in this world
that will bring out the tenderness In
the. heart of even the mightiest men,
it is a .baby. Many a heart that has
been dead to all tender feelings has
almost burst with tenderness when a
baby has come into its life.
And then when this helpless, inno
cent baby has come in poverty and
sickness, it melts the hardest heart
and cpens the purse strings of all who
come in touch with it. So to me this
work of caring for the babies is the
noblest part of the work of the asso
What a grand thing to have a place
where a mother can bring her baby
every week and have it thoroughly
examined by the best physicians and
nurses and be given advice as to feed
ing and caring for it.
Then besides that there is the milk
station, where pure, sterilized milk in
clean bottles can be had for their "ba
bies by coming for it. It has been so
interesting to see these babies there
under treatment. Some of the poor
little things were in a hopeless condi
tion when first brought into the sta
tion. And there the poor, tired moth
ers have been cheered and helped.
This work is only in its infancy. Al
though it has progressed finely, I have
visions of a much larger work.

speak a word of appreciation or en
couragement. Why are we so loath to speak a word
of kindness? Why do we wait until
we are called upon to view for the last
time the lifeless forms of our loved

might have made their lives a little
brighter or the burdens easier to bear.

I ask myself the question over and
over: How did we ever get along
without the Visiting Nurse essocia
tion? How the poor must have suffered.
It s hard enough to be sick, but when
poverty and sickness come together it
is hard indeed. In closing, I want to
ask God's blessing upon the Visiting
Nurses' association, its president,
whose heart is so thoroughly in the
work, the ladies of the board, and
then our ever-faithful, untiring nurses.
May -God's richest blessing rest upon
them as they go about day by day
braving the cold of winter and the
heat of summer, relieving suffering
wherever they are called. May the
coming years be the greatest year in
its history. May many hearts be
touched hy the work and purse strings
opened that have never been opened
before and the contents poured into
the treasury of the Visiting Nurses'
association. It is to my mind the
greatest charitable organization. It
does all that the other organizations
do and more, too. It feeds the hun

sick and the suffering. It deserves the
cooperation and support of every cit
izen of Rock Island.

a year ago my face began to crack and
get scaly in blotches. It soon got
worse and my face was all spotted and
rough, and it itched me very much at
night, and caused me so end of discom
fort. After a month or so, pimples and
blackheads began to show, first in small
numbers and then gradually covering
my entire face. It was awful. The
pimples were sore and the Tash was
itchy and my face had a most un
sightly appearance. I coujd get no

time another jar of Resinol Ointment
and cake of Resinol Soap were gone,
I can truthfully say that it was a com
