SAINT 'MARY’S BEAcAn

Entered at the Leonardtown Poatoffice as second
class matter under the Act ot May, 1898.
LEONARDTOWN. MD-THURSDAY MORNING. AUG 1.1918.
Notice to Correspondents:
Our correspondents are requested to send in their
communications in time for current issue. We
are most anxious to publish all communications,
but coot must be in this office by 4 p. m. Tuesday.
That St. Mary’s has been so conspicuously
successful in attaining her quotas and allottments
in the various branches of war activity has been
due in large measure to the untiring energy and
loyal devotion of her glorious women. Hereto
fore they have been called upon only for the
aid and assistance which they could render in
their own communities, but now they are ap
pealed to for a closer and more intimate associa
tion in the real work of the war.
In providing adequate care for the wounded
among our overseas forces, the hospitals of
America have been sadly depleted of their
trained nurses. It is absolutely imperative that
their places be filled at once, and for that reason
the Government has issued a call for 25,000
young women, between the ages of 19 and 35,
to enroll in the United States Student Nurse
Intelligence and sound health are the main
requisites, and enrollment can be made in three
(1) As engaging to hold themselves in
readiness until April 1, 1919, to accept assign
ments to nurses’ training schools. These wom
en will be sent to the schools as fast as vacan
cies occur. Those of superior qualifications
will be given preference, and it is, of course,
possible that not everyone who enrolls will be
(2) As desiring to become candidates for
the Army Nursing School recently established
by authority of the War Department, with
branch schools in selected military hospitals.
(3) As engaging to hold themselves in
readiness until April 1, 1919, to accept assign
ments to either a civilian training school or the
Army Nursing School. Those who so enroll
will be called where the first need arises. The
Government hopes that a majority of those who
enroll will thus put down their names for both.
St Mary’s is expected to furnish ten of these
student nurses, and it is confidently hoped that
the enrollment will even exceed that number.
The salaries in nursing work compare very
favorably with the salaries of other trained wom
en. In the more responsible positions of teach
ing, organizing or admininstrative work they are
higher than the average. Opportunities for ad
vancement are many and steadily increasing. If
you are a woman of real ability, you have a
better opportunity of attaining to a position of
influence and distinction in this field than in
many of the more crowded professions, especial
ly those where the prior claims and competition
of men may put a woman at some disadvantage.
Nursing is essentially democratic, and women of
any race, color, creed, or social position are ad
mitted to its ranks if they have the essential
qualities and preparation demanded. It is a
calling, however, which treasures the proudest
traditions. All down the centuries it has had
the service of women of rare character and so
cial spirit and often of marked ability and dis
tinction, and, notwithstanding the many new
fields of activity for women, it still attracts many
of the same type, whose names are known far
and wide and whose services are recognized as
invaluable not only to the people whom they
help, but to the country at large. As in other
professions, the social position of individual mem
bers is what they themselves make it, but nurses
as a class have a dignified and assured place in
the community, and their social status is similar
to that of other professional women.
Mrs, Wm. Mevereli Loker, who is conduct
ing the campaign for St. Mary’s quota, will
have the Red Cross headquarters in Leonard
town open on Tuesdays and Saturdays to en
roll all who appjy. She will also, answer any
THE EMPTY COAT [
'Taint no use a-hanging there
On its peg no more!
Sleeves ashowln’ too much wear,
. Pockets badly tom.
■ Prob’ly when the war Is done
It’ll be too small
Guess he’ll have another one—
If he comes at all.
But its sacred In our eyas;
- Somethin’ like a prayer;
Now it looks so lonesome-wise
Jest a-hanging there
: Seems like yeste’day I stood,
Watched him’bout bis chores;
Qringin’ In the kitchen wood.
Stompin’ cross the floors.
Laughed to see him snoopin’ 'round,
Like be used to snoop,
Whistlin’ happy when he found
Ma was makln’ soup!
Now that he ain't here no more
Ma and me jest glance
Up at that old coat ho wore
’Fore he went to France.
Nights, when all the doors is shel,
'Fore J go up stair,
Touch Its sleeve an’ find It wet -
Ma’s be'n cryln’ there.
Somethin’s smartin’ my eyes, too,
Have to wink 'em light.
When 1 whisper, “Proud o’ you!
flood night, lad! Good night.’’
Curs for Dysentery.
"While I was In Ashland, Kansas, a
gentleman overheard me speaking of
Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Remedy,” writes William Whitelaw,
of Des Moines, lowa "He told mo In
detail of what It bad done for his fami
ly. but more especially his daughter
who was lying a? the point of death
with a violent attack of dysentery, and
had been given up by the family phy
sician. Some of his neighbors advis
ed him lo give chamberlain's Colic
and Diarrhoea Remedy, which he did,
and full believes that by doing so
saved the life of his child.’ Ho staled
that be had also used this remedy him
self witli equally gratifying results "
