"THE FIRST YEAR."
(Continued from page 11.) have been done in the year, and forty anaesthetics given. All tho workers on the station have been helpers, and though untrained, have been invaluable. In one opera tion we had the great pleasure of tho valuable help of Miss K. Wilson, the newly arrived trained nurse for the Methodist Mission at Wembo Mia ma. It was a relief and a joy to have a taste of a real nurse, but when it was all over and 1 came back to hard facts, it brought out all tho more the need for 0110 here to take charge of tho endless routine of a clinic, and the elaborate preparations for operations. If tho medical work were all there is to do for a doctor here, it would not be so bad, but this is only a small part of all his duties, which are endless and never ceasing. I won't try to tell you all there is to do on this station, where for most of the time one of the two men is always on the road, and the doctor is usually the man to stay on the station on account of the char acter of his work. There are several things in order for this station; one of them is a trained nurse, another one is a good hospital, and a third is an industrial or business man to handle all the business part of the station, besides handle the ever-in creasing transport of the Methodist Mission whoso water terminus we are. Tho work hero has unlimited pos sibilities and opportunities, therefore it also lays on us a very definite re sponsibility to do it. These people have been suffering for decades from diseases that can be relieved and healed; they have accepted it like fatalists, and have and are suffring untold misery. Their spiritual mis ery and darkness is as great as their physical suffering. They come to us in the simplest, child-like faith, and put themselves into our hands. When they accept Jesus Christ they show the same faith, much more than we do, in fact. If more people at home really knew what we are trying to do here, and could see what we are trying to do it with, there would be the adequate response to this great WHITING -ADAMS BRUSHES I TRADE VULCAN MARK RUBBER CEMENTED Shaving D .. .
