Nature abhors a vacuum. W>, likewise,
does the mind and the heart of youth.
Not mo^e does the all pervading atmos
pher; fill every crack and cranny of space,
than the all surrounding sea of thought
and feeling in which he lives seeks to oc
cupy every unfilled nook and chamber of
his thought. Here the boy and the girl
have no choice. That law is universal and
irresistible. The mind will b tilled, the
heart will be fed. But "How,” "With
what." These are the questions that will
be answerd. Here is the field of choice
Wise lathers and mothers can help the
children to make their selection The boy
who is wisely and lovingly encouraged to
read good books will have little space in
his mind for those of another sort; the
girl whoissurrounded with an atmosphere
of courtesy and refinement, who is taught
to note the difference between jazz and
good music, will be the less likely to care
for the inferior in any direction. If many
parents would but be careful to remember
that that which enters the mind in the
various forms of reading, conversation,
and entertainment, emerges in forms ot
thought, belief, and conduct, they would
not fail to give a more loving attendance
•o their children’s daily ways and walks.
Henry Ward Beecher said,-“When an ele
phant eats hay, the hay becomes elephani;
but if he,eats too much,musty hay, he be
comes a sick elephant.” With the pre
sent craze for inferior forms of amuse
ment and entertainment, it devolves upon
those parents who greatly care, not only
for the future of the children, but for that
of our country as well, to see to it that
the lessons, friendships, and associations
of the Sunday-School are estimated in the
home at their full value, and that the
boys and girls are encouraged to appreci
ate and desire them.

The graduation exercises of the nurses
of the Waldo County General Hosp lal
were held at the hospital May 1st at 8 p.
m., under the ausp ces of the directors of
the Association. Neatly printed regula
tion folders announced the event and
there was a large attendance of interest
ed relatives and friends.
The formal program opened with a
prayer by Kev. George C Sauer, follow
ed bv an informal address on “The Three
Vital Signs,” by Miss Alice M. Wescott,
Mr. Edward Evans, chairman ot the
board of directors, who presided and an
nounced the program was very compli
mentary in his introduction of Miss Wes
cott and voiced the sentiment of all
when he spoke of her popularity, effici
ency, enthusiasm and interest in the
good of the hospital. Miss Wescott men
tioned three things the hospital did as
essentials—the care of the sick, the train
ing of nurses and extending medical re
search, etc. Training of nurses began in
this country about 50 years ago, but Eng
land had preceded us about 12 years.
Florence Nightingale was the first train
ed nurse and reached world fame. Miss
Wescott referred modestly to her experi
ences in the late war on the hospital
ship, in the English and French hospitals.
The history of the Waldo County Hospi
tal began in 1901 and she gave a buef
summary of its work and mentioned
among others Miss Mary Marshall, Miss
Mima M. Valentine and Mrs. Alton A.
Johnson. The three vital signs she es
pecially referred to in her address were
the nurse’s cap, the broad black band and
the R. N., explaining what they meant
and how they were acquired. The first
two are obtained here and the R. N. is
acquired after three months affiliation
with the Eastern Maine General Hospi
tal in Bangor and an examination before
me Slate Doaru
Ur. Elmer Small, the dean of the Bel
fast physicians, and one who has been
associated with the hospital during its
entire history, gave an address full of en
couragement to the graduates, whom he
had been associated with in the sick
room, in the operating room and had also
observed their special aptitude for their
chosed profession, their strict attention
to business and their very apparent eager
ness to learn well all their lessons, etc.
He also told them they had nothing to
fear in the pursuince of their profession
for they had had intensive training, they
knew how to be seK sacrificing and they
knew what devotion to duly signified.
They would be familiar with suffering
and see many pathetic scenes. He cau
tioned them to do their duty, their whole
duty, to be sympathetic, but to carry
their points when they knew they were
right. He spoke in complimentary terms
of Miss Wescott and admonished the
nurses to take her as an example.
Miss Edna Hopkins, who frequently
sings at the hospital, rendered the very
pleasing soprano solo, “Through the
Years,” by Carrie Jacobs Bond, in fine
voice and also sang at thj close of the
program, “Just to Trust Him.”
Rev. Wm F. Skerrye gave an address
of vital interest to all, especially to the
graduates, when he painted a word pic
ture of "The Ideal Nurse.” We are not
living in a perfect world and there are no
perfect people, but we have dreams of
the perfect and all who pattern after the
highest ideals and face them do the
largest service. There are three mtangible
qualities in the ideal nurse’s life, sympa
thy, professional enthusiasm and faith.
These are acquired but not from books;
they are inherent. His illustrations in
accenting these qualities will remain long
in the minds of the graduates and be of
material assistance in their life’s work.
The six essentials all known to the med
ical profession centuries ago remain in
full force today: fresh air, good food,
plenty of rest, required recreation, regu
lar habits of bodily functions and con
trol of the passions. He advised the
nurses to ha\e at least a few of the liv
ing pictures found in the best of litera
ture, to study them and apply their
meaning to their own lives and work.
He spoke of the public spirit that had
made this fine hospital possible with gifts
of money and of service.
The nurses were m uniform and stood
in,the receiving line. The graduates car
ried arm bouquets, presented by Mrs.
Cecil Clay lor the Hospital Aid, and
were very modest and sweet as they re
ceived their diplomas, which Mr. Evans
presented with brief and appropriate re
The hospital was bright and cherry and
an abundance of beautiful llowers added
to the general effect.
At the social hour that followed deli
cious assorted cake and punch were serv
ed. The arrangements for the pleasant
occasion were made by Miss Wescott,
the directors and their wives.

It was informally announced at the ;
graduation that Miss V\ escott's resigna
tion had been n the hands of the direc
tors for some time, to take effect any j
time after May 1st. This is to be regret
ted not only by the management, but hy
all who have the best interest of the hos- |
pital at heart. Her ieim of se,vice has
i been entirely satisfactory and she is most
popular with all. She will take a needed
rest of about two months, visiting in
Boston and at her home in Bluehitl.

A Contemptible act a movement
has been started, backed by a reward of
$100, for information that will lead to the
arrest of the party guilty of ringing in the
false alarm at 9o’clock,Thuraday evening,
from box 14 at the coiner of Northport
avenue and Allyn street. The wind was j
blowing a gale and the thermometer was :
low making a hard night for a fire, and
every man responded. While the cost to
the city is considerable at every fire alarm
in this case the exposure of the run to the
lire was very productive of bad colds.
Chief S. S. L. Shute has previously asked
The Journal to warn auto drivers to please
not to attempt to pass the fire department
on the way to a fire or to block the road
to hinder the department in any way. In
several instances recently men, who
should know better havejbeen guiltyof tho
offence. Thursday night sight seers rush
ed down the avenue backed up Salmond
street and even followed the department
down Condon street, where some called to
the men that the fire was located. If the
party who rang in the alarm is caught I
public sentiment would demand that he
be dealt with to the fullest extent of the
law, and it is an assured fact that the
trouble caused by sight-seers obstructing
the way will be lessened if arrests are
necessary to accomplish the result. Plead
ing ignorance of the law and apologies to
officials saved two drivers from los ng
their licenses on this occasion.
1 William H. Kimball died April 17th at
Fairfield, Mail e, at the age of 47 years

31 years, leaving on account of poor
health a year ago. A'ways thoughtful
of home and children he will be sadly
